little crazy?

yes, i know it's february but i couldn't contain myself and bought a swim suit for the summer that im in love with.. living in this sunshine state gets me anxious for swim season. thought i'd rock the one piece this year instead of tankini's.. it didn't help that it was only $35 dollars. booyah.

p.s my mama bought the same one

isn't this the truth?

my hearts been through a lot, but instead of being damaged, its healed.
thank goodness.
sometimes i wonder why i was given such a big heart.

i love working out

wait, what did i say?!
{yes, the truth comes out. working out with sis every day has been the best thing for me. we've had so much fun.. even on the mornings when i'm half asleep and look to see that its still dark outside, i love it. good thing we don't have to do it that early every morning. daddy made us fresh squeezed oj to enjoy after our work out today. he's the greatest.}

here are our before pictures of our muscles. i know what you're thinking.. "they are already so toned and muscular how can the after pictures be any different??" we will suprise you:)

life is grand.

be grateful.

{ just a thought }
"Your very attitude toward life can be evidence of whether or not you are truly grateful for life, for the blessings you have, for the comforts and privileges and opportunities you enjoy, for the talents you have been given, for everything. ...Try to be grateful even when you encounter challenges and problems along the way of life, because you will. Like everyone else, you will have difficulties to overcome. But they will not last forever. And God will not forsake you."

-Gordon B. Hinckley

this world

is a beautiful place.
it passes all my understanding
cherie call
"i was sitting on a southbound plane,
i was buried in a magazine
when the man in the next seat over
wanted to talk to me
he talked about the universe
he talked about saturn's rings
he said, i might be an atheist
except for just one thing

it passes all my understanding
how it worked out just right
the distance that we live from the sun,
the stars that shine at night
we may prove it was just an accident
but how did it begin?
it passes all my understanding

i told him, you are a scholar
you know things that i don't know
but i believe a god above
made everything below
and i know we are his children
i've known it since i was two
but when it comes with being struck with awe,
i'm just like you

it passes all my understanding
all the beauty we have here
from the majesty of the canyons
to a tiny baby's ear
and even when i can't believe it
he still believes in me

we watched the sun set through the clouds
in a tiny little airplane window
with people sleeping all around
and i thought of how we just expect this world to be
when the flight attendant passed me by
i threw away my magazine
it passes all my understanding
that the lord knows both our names
and that he made this world for everyone
that was sitting on that plane
and in spite of man's distractions
he offers us his peace
that passes all my understanding"

{i love knowing god did create this world and we are his children and he loves us more than we will ever know.}

look who has a new smile!

.. jakers!!

i took him to his ortho appointment today and he got his braces off!! yay!! i love his new smile. . tonight i cut his hair .. so tomorrow at school he's going to look like a NEW man! my little bro is growing up and i love that i'm here to be apart of his life!


you're never alone

"May the angels protect you
Trouble neglect you
And heaven accept you when its time to go home
May you always have plenty
The glass never empty
Know in your belly
You're never alone

May your tears come from laughing
You find friends worth having
With every year passing
They mean more than gold
May you win but stay humble
Smile more than grumble
And know when you stumble
You're never alone

I'll be in every beat of your heart

when you face the unknown

wherever you fly

this isn't goodbye

my love for you will follow you,

stay with you
baby, you're never alone
i have to be honest
as much as i want it
i'm not going to promise
the cold winds won't blow
so when hard times have found you
and your fear surround you
wrap my love around you
you're never alone"

happy birthday to my beautiful linds.

my favorite things about lindsey hansen

the first time we hung out, we talked for hours while making headbands and i felt like we've been friends for awhile.

sometimes we match without even realizing it

knows exactly when i need her and made me i heart you cupcakes
is the most photogenic person i know
makes life so much more fun and entertaining
is so creative and talented
texts me lyrics to songs that fit my life perfectly
is so strong and positive in every way
rocks dark hair as well as blonde

i love my miss lindsey and miss her very much.

{happy birthday my lovely}

heard this on the radio

and loved it.


{martina mcbride}

"i get kissed by the sun each morning
put my feet on a hardwood floor
sometimes i sit on my front porch swing
just soaking up the day
and i think to myself,
this world is a beautiful place
i have been blessed
and i feel i've found my way
i thank god for all i've been given
at the end of every day
i have been blessed
with so much more than i deserve
to be here with the ones that love me
to love them so much it hurts
this world is a beautiful gift
i have been blessed"

boo yah.

"People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway. If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway. What you spend years creating and building, others could destroy overnight. Create and build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today, will often be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough. Give the world the best you have anyway. You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway."
--Mother Teresa

{i had a great weekend & am looking forward to this week.. i'm so busy with babysitting, work, headbands, doing hair at home, working out, church stuff and more that i hope i find time to breathe. i feel so blessed. i love that i know i can feel blessed even through the hard times, but boy am i enjoying my good times}

giiirls night!

we went to the midnight showing of dear john. we had fun as you can tell.. we wore our pj's and we bought plenty of food at walmart for the same price as like a popcorn and candy at the theater haha:) i love girls nights so much. the movie was good.. except the ending was sad.. i love sappy love stories where they live happily ever after. oh well.
my love story that i'll have someday can be exactly how i want it.

one more thing: tara got her mission call to the phillipines, quezon city mission, tagalog speaking. she leaves april twenty first. i'm so happy for her.

i'm followin

my rainbow
{rainbow: colbie caillat}
"im still feeling the rain fall
and bouncin off my skin
how long do i have to wait for
the sun to shine again?

come on paint me the rainbows
i can follow it
i don't know where it will take me
but i like wonderin'

wherever you are
where you will be
are you the same or dreamin after
waitin only for me
waiting for love
waiting for the same or
dreamin on the other side
hoping no matter how far i'll find my way to you
followin a rainbow

im gonna stop in the middle
hang my feet off the edge
i got no reason to worry
i know i'll find the end
that's where you'll be waiting
i hope you don't forget
that i won't quit til i find you
no matter the risk

i'm followin my rainbow.."
