I'll admit..

..I pretty much stared at this quote a BAJILLION times on Thursday. It was SUCH a bad day.. You know those days where EVERYTHING goes wrong?? Ya.. that describes it perfectly.. The morning went a little like this.. My Aunt Jill came in for me to do her hair.. One of the teachers jumped in and wanted to mix one of the colors for me while I was mixing the bleach. DON'T WORRY cause without telling me she decided to mix a 3n (which is one away from black) and a 9n(which is light but the black's going to take over) After rinsing my aunt out and looking at her hair we both laughed beacause the half of her hair was BLACK. I went to my teacher and asked her what happened? She told me that we didn't have the color I wanted to use in stock, so she tried to make it.. but DIDN'T. Good thing I have the most beautiful Aunt in the world that would look gorgeous with green hair..I just love that my first mistake was on her. . and that i had such a great second to last day at school.. Then, I lost my credit sheet so I thought I was going to have to stay a couple weeks longer at school to finish them.. Then SOMEHOW my computer screen cracked ( Don't worry- It continues to get bigger every day). Thank goodness for

-my amazing Grandma who brought me over hot chocolate
- friends and family to call to vent to
-songs about having bad days
-uplifting scriptures, quotes and prayer

FAV scripture:
D&C 68 2-18
"Wherefore, be of good cheer and do not fear, for I the Lord am with you, and will stand by you.."

FAV quote:
"Some church members may feel weighed down with discouragement about the circumstances of their personal lives, even when they are making sustained and admirable efforts. Frequently, these feelings of self-disappointment come not from wrongdoing, but from stresses and troubles for which we may not be fully to blame. The Atonement of Jesus Christ applies to these experiences because it applies to all of life. The Savior CAN wipe away ALL of our tears, after all we can do...
The Savior's atonement is.. the healing power not only for sin, it's not just for sinners."
-Bruce C. Hasfen

The healing power of the Atonement is SO real. I have felt it in my life and am so grateful for it. I love knowing that Christ suffered for every pain because he loved us so much and wanted to make it possible for us to live with him forever and ever.

The GOOD thing about bad days are that the good days are SO much better.

Friday night was such a fun night. Tara and I got a Jamba Juice, watched 17 again with my man, Zac Efron..(yes, i took pictures of him during the movie) ha. THEN we danced and played in the rain in the MIDDLE of the street and sang to kenny's "There's Something Sexy About The Rain"

We went back to my place to make headbands.. my cute cousin, Jacqueline joined us! She's such a fun and creative girl! We had pazookies and went to bed at twelve.. we were tired.

Today was awesome! My first Saturday not having school! SO nice! I left my place at 8:30 a.m. to meet my friend Stephanie to go to the Salt Lake City Temple.. On my way to Salt Lake it started POURING rain.. I kept praying.. The visibility was so bad. . then after it stopped I was in construction traffic for an HOUR. Lets just say I was tempted to just go home.. but driving 2 hours for the temple was worth it. I love the feeling in the temple. It's so peaceful and I feel Heavenly Father so close. Sometimes I wish I could just live in the temple. I never want to leave. I'm so grateful for the priesthood and for the gospel, I just LOVE everything about it.

Tonight I went out with Scotty. We had dinner at my fav fav fav-- carrabas! We caught up with eachother's lives, almost climbed a tree, laughed our heads off at Provo's comedy sportz improv. The guy sitting next to Scott had red hair and told him that he was lucky to be in between two redheads, or something like that.. It was funny. During the show one of the comedians took their shirt off to try to be funny .. they punished him and then played "choose the right". Oh how i love Provo. We then stopped at Sonic and said hi to our friend Steve (He doesn't even know we are friends with him) but who cares, we enjoy visiting sonic to ask him questions.. he says very funny things, is VERY random, different and makes conversations entertaining. It was a fun night. I'm lucky to have Scotty as my friend.

BAH! I miss my family like crazy. I had such a fun time with them in Vegas.

Favorite text this week from my Dad: "News Flash, Your Dad loves you more than life itself." He also told me that he loves me more than mint chocolate chip ice cream.. that's ALOT.

I got a picture of my Mom with her rockin the peace sign. She will always be young at heart!

I talked to Jakers on the phone.. I can't believe my baby brother started High School.

Mitch texted me and told me congrats for graduating, he's always been such a thoughtful person.

and.. my sis is THE cutest. She had to dress up 80's for a light performance and is starting college soon!

P.s I CAN'T wait for
1.Keith Urban Concert
2. to turn 21
&
3. for my roomate to back come home to me.

I can't believe you have only had one bad day in months. It is because you always see the positive. You have so many amazing days and I love how you see the Lord's hand in all things! You are my inspiration!

P.S. I can't believe you posted that picture of me. I was goofing around entertaining Laurisa with her glasses! Glad I made you laugh!
