its been a whole year

and im ready to love again
"seems i was was playing on the safe side baby
building walls around my heart to save me
but its time for me to let it go

yeah im ready to feel now
no longer am i afraid of the fall down
it must be time to move on now
without the fear of how it might end
i guess im ready to love again

just when you think that love will never find you
you run away but still it's right behind you
its just something we can't control

so come up and find me
i'll be waiting up for you
i'll be holding out for you tonight

cause i'm ready to feel now
.. i guess im ready to love again.."

{i love lady a's new cd. the songs fit me so well. i love that i feel i could love again. guess now i just have to stay happy and he will come}
trust me-- i'm in no rush.

"Your happiness doesn't depend on what's happening OUTSIDE of you, it depends on what's happening INSIDE of you."

{so true. }

i'm so grateful for all the things in my life that add to my happiness. . but what truly makes me happy is keeping the commandments of god and serving others.

here's to another week of sewing sewing and more sewing for hb orders/upcoming botiques and working in the salon :] yay. yay. yay.

i know that..

MY JOB.. is amazing. i love work. it was my first day, but I can tell i will always love it. i love the salon, the people and what I do and learn. i've been busy doing hair at home, sewing more headbands for orders than i can count, spending time with family, g and sis, girlfriends and babysitting. life is just grand. i LOVE being busy. i'm so glad that everythings coming together.. finally. if trials come soon.. i can get through em. that's the greatest feeling in the world. life is good. i heard this song in the salon today and it made me happy.

"i used to live in a darkened room had a face of stone, and a heart of gloom
lost my hope, i was so far gone, cryin all my tears with the curtains drawn
i didn't know til my soul broke free. i've got these angels watchin over me, yeah
ohhh watch me go, i'm a happy girl. everybody knows that the sweetest thing that you'll
ever see in the whole wide world is a happy girl
laugh when i feel like it cry when i feel like it thats just how my life is thats how it goes
oh, watch me go, im a happy girl and i've come to know that the world won't change
just cause i complain. let the axis twirl.
i'm a happy girl"

best weekend

of my life..
friday: got the job of my dreams at luxe salon and took a road trip to cali
sat:two words-disney land
as you can tell im one happy girl...

we did a lot of things like.. -celebrated life.

when we were buying our tickets the lady asked g are you guys celebrating anything? g said of course, my good friend joslyn got a good job and we are celebrating life.. so they gave us "im celebrating" pins to wear around all day:]

-took a picture with mickey with his party hat on
-were sent to jail at toon town for having too much fun
-stood in line for our favorite rides and loved every second
-went to the tiki room, had pineapple icecream and made faces like the tiki statues
-got churros
-saw pierce brosnan eating his popcorn
-got pictures with goofy and minnies mailboxes cause we couldn't find them
-drove a really cute teal car

sis and i had so much fun with eachother and with these two boys

dear disneyland,

i'll be back soon. i promise

love me.


quote right now ..
"the lords way is not hard, life is hard, not the gospel. there is an opposition in all things, everywhere for everyone. life is hard for all of us, but life is always simple. we only have two choices. we can either follow the lord and be endowed with his power and have peace, light and strength, knowledge, confidence, love and joy or we can go some other way, any other way, whatever other way, and go alone without his support, without his power, without guidance, in darkness, turmoil, doubt, grief and despair. i ask which way is easier? life is hard, but life is simple. get on the path and never, ever give up. you never give up. you just keep on going, you don't quit and you will make it."

dear head,
i'm so sorry that you have suffered every day for the past three weeks by those nasty migraines. glad we figured out that i have a stigmatism and need glasses for crafting and reading.. good thing we found juicy couture ones that are gems and have juicy written in gold on the side.
i'm in love. and its not a boy.

{mama tried some on for fun to be like me}

guess i'm going to have to get used to my daddy calling me his cute little 4-eyes.



{i got lost at the fabric store yesterday and bought all of these pretty fabrics.
headband making, here i come!}

p.s i have an interview at a very nice salon to be a PAID assistant on friday and you better believe my fingers and toes are crossed.

..i think to myself.. what a wonderful world.

i loved our little weekend road trip to flagstaff. it was such a fun getaway. i loveLOVElove that you can drive two hours away and visit snow, then come back to the warmth.
i loved spending time with my tara. she's such an amazing person and friend.

we drove to sedona and hiked to devils bridge.

i love being her sister

and i love these two together.

the whole gang!!

beautiful, beautiful.

we had a fun time together..

incase you didn't notice.. 1.2.3. JUUUMP!!

things that were brought to my attention:

i am an ogar according to g (because ogars are like onions they have layers) so i had layers of clothing i kept taking off. . therefore i'm an ogar.

tara and i weren't afraid to go potty 3 times in the great outdoors

boys can make yummy breakfast

listening to disney music while driving in the " bumpity" hills is very fun

talks in the car can be very deep

waiters can think onion rings are onion strips

tennis balls do not cure knots in your back according to g

and flagstaff is a fun getaway.

love this..

"things will work out. keep trying. be believing.
be happy. don't get discouraged. things will work out."
{president gordon b. hinckley}



i feel like blabbing..
here i gooo.. its crazy how you think you have your life planned out and then BOOM something happens that turns your life completly around. this month its been a year since my life changed and i've done so good.. but sometimes i just can't believe that i was fooled so well. i'm so strong now and am so much closer to heavenly father. my prayers are more meaningful now, i talk to him like he's near me. i wonder if real true love is out there.. the truest love where the guy loves the girl so much he sees who she truly is and who she can become.. the love where its unconditional no matter what you look like, the kind of love thats so true filled with tons of meaningful kisses.. i wonder if there is a guy out there who meets my love languages.. i guess we will see. but for now i'm just going to have to trust heavenly father with my whole heart that he is preparing the love of my life.. whether its in this life or the next.. i'm thinkin he exists.. i hope he does. i'm so glad that i live in such a beautiful world and can escape to the temple a couple times this week. wow. blabbing helped me realize how blessed i really am. its just hard not seeing the future when you thought you had it wrapped around your fingers. my future will be bright, i just know it. the future is as bright as our faith. :]
