1 YEAR + Breaking Dawn part 1 :D

Well, yes. As of yesterday, my bestie missionary guy has officially hit his one-year mark.


I'm feelin' pretty good, knowing it's halfway done.

But now, I've gotta do that all over again ha.

It's crazy to think that even after a year of not seeing him, we are still BFFs and I STILL miss him, every day.

He's awesome.

On another note...I went to the midnight showing of Breaking Dawn part 1! (Of course I did.) 

I went with my mama and I absolutely LOOOVED it!I am a major major fan.Jasper was the BEST.TEAM JASPER 4 LYFE <3Quote of the night: "Possibly." -Jasper Hale

I left the red eye because I kinda look like a vampire :}

Mickey's Halloween Party / Oceanside

This past weekend I took a little Cali trip with the Sargents!

It was definitely one of thee best Cali trips ever.

Mickey's Halloween party, which was from 7-12 at Disneyland, was the best!

We literally walked onto every ride.

And we got to wear costumes.

We also stayed at Trevor's beach house in Oceanside and hung out there.

Aaand of course, hit up some outlets and ate yummy food.

Dance parties with Ron and Brett, everywhere we went, was a must.

The whole weekend was just soooo fun!!

It kindaa made me miss Elder Sargent a lot though.

I just really like these people <3

Forget Not

I know everyone and their dog is talking about President Uchtdorf's talk at the General Relief Society meeting,
but it was just so good!

Plus, Uchtdorf is one of my faves.
He is just so genuine and sweet, and I'm not gonna lie, I love his accent!

I can't even explain how much I love these "Forget Nots" and Uchtdorf's explainations.

I really do need to remember these.

I often get so caught up and stressed out over everything, that I become super impatient with myself.

I also keep putting off my happiness,
thinking that there will be a time in the future when I will become truly happy, when really, I just need to create my own happiness NOW.

“The lesson here,” he said, ”is that if we spend our days waiting for fabulous roses, we could miss the beauty and wonder of the tiny forget-me-nots that are all around us.”

It is such an amazing reminder that the Lord loves me.

I am so grateful to have the Gospel in my life.

I am also very excited for General Conference this weekend!

“No matter how dark your days may seem, no matter how insignificant you may feel, no matter how overshadowed you think you may be, your Heavenly Father has not forgotten you. In fact, He loves you, with an infinite love.”

Fleet Foxes / Bon Iver

Last week, after months of waiting, I attended the Fleet Foxes / Bon Iver concert!

It was simply AMAZING.

I did not want Bon Iver to stop.
I swear Justin Vernon is an angel.
Minus the F bombs dropped every so often.

Since we bought pre-sale tix, we were all spread out.
So Camille was my date :)

The Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Monday, I got my wisdom teeth removed.

Ohh the fun that was.

Luckily, I have a wonderful BFF named Misty who came with me and my mom and video taped me all looped up and took care of me.

Best caregiver EVER.

I apparently was super emotional and would be super happy and giggly one minute,
and the next, I would break down in tears.

The worst part was deff the IV.

I cried before it, during it, and after it just thinking about it.

I am a trypanophobic, which means I have a needle phobia.

After things got a little clearer for me,
I looked at my photo booth on my computer to find some super cute pics I took when I was high.

There was a bunch of me touching me numb bottom lip and the place where my IV was.

I did, however, enjoy the company that brought me some yummy goody goods and just hung out with me :)

My little bro thought I was pretty darn funny.

Mommy for a Weekend

This past weekend from thursday to sunday, I played mommy for 4 kids while the rest of the fam went to Cali!

I babysit them all the time, but this was the longest I've ever babysat, and it was a LOT of work.

But it was super fun!

And I feel kinda cheesy saying this, but it was a really good experience for me.

Thursday, I took the kiddos over to my house and that night took the little girl (my best friend) to a wedding reception.
Despite her face in the pic, she looved it!

They totally crashed when we got back home.

Friday, we mostly just hung out at home, until that night we went swimming at their "Buck Buck's" (other g-ma's) house.

Saturday, first, we went to Chick-fil-a and I let them play in the play place.
After, we went to a gelato place where they had a little room where you could draw with chalk on the walls.
The kids actually liked this better, funny enough.

After gelato, we went home and had "quiet time" while the baby took a nap.

When he woke up, we saw a movie at the Picture Show and all the kids sat through the whooole thing!

When the movie ended, we went inside the mall and I let the kiddos play in the play area.

That place scared the crap out of me.

Soo many kids.

They loved it though.

The baby would not get off this lady bug. It was so funny!

After the mall, I took them to my house and just fed and bathed them there.
Since they didn't have their pjs, my mom let them borrow my brother's old shirts.
They thought it was pretty funny and kept telling each other that they were wearing dresses.

Sunday, I took them to my ward and they did pretty well!

I was actually kinda sad for the rents to come back home that night.

I just looove these kiddos so much and I loved watching them!
