Five Fantastic Things

Yay! I am so glad to be back on track with my weekly blogging (even though this is the first week). I have really missed this post. It always helped when I was having a really hard week. It is good to remember the things we are thankful for, and all the blessings in our life. Here ya go.

  1. Having a dad who is good with money. This is seriously such an amazing blessing. I don't know where I would be without him. Hopelessly confused no doubt!
  2. My LEAP class. This is a class I registered for at the beginning of the school year (fall semester). It is a year long class with the same people the entire year. I don't know where I would be without this class. LEAP is kind of a home away from home as far as college classes go. It is so nice to be able to walk into a classroom, and know every single person. It is just comfortable, and it is a nice break from the day. I never thought our class would get as close as it has. It truly is amazing.
  3. Having a job! I have the best job in the entire world. I work at an After School program for an elementary school. I am in love with these kids. I would do anything for them. It doesn't help that I work with some pretty awesome people as well!
  4. A good Chai Latte. I wish I had one right now!
  5. The humor section of Pinterest. I am convinced that this is one of the best things in the entire world. It cures any bad day!
Well there you have it! I already feel better about my day. I would challenge everyone to really try to start writing things your are thankful for down. I think a lot of times we forget all the things we truly have, especially the little things. Try to start writing things down, so you can look back at them when you are having a bad day. It really does help.

Safe & Sound

So I have been failing miserably with my birthday goals, so I am going to try to get back on track with some of my weekly blog posts! First up is Music Monday!!! Oh how I have missed this. First song... Taylor Swift. Yes go ahead and make fun. The reason I have chosen this song is because I am absolutely in LOVE with the music video. A lot of people haven't been fans of the music video, but I find it absolutely lovely. I am in awe of the simplicity of it all. It has a nice vintage/eery feel which I always appreciate. I don't know. It just really intrigues me, and I have found myself watching it over and over again. Please enjoy.
p.s- Since I am already showcasing some T Swift I might as well put this next video up. This video just makes me smile. I don't really know what it is! Haha I just find it hilarious.

I am sorry for all you people out there that love this word, but I do not. I don't really know what it is, but it just makes me cringe! I feel like every blog I read has to say something about how whimsical they are. I still absolutely LOVE these blogs, but over time this word has begun to bug me more and more. What does whimsical ever mean?! I decided to find out. Here is the definition of whimsical.

                a) playfully quaint or fanciful, esp. in an appealing and amusing way.
                b) acting or behaving in a capricious manner.

Playfully quaint or fanciful? What does that even mean?! Because the definition of this word is so strange, I decided to look to the Urban Dictionary for help. I found its definition to be a lot more interesting.

Whim-si-cal :A word used to describe a person that has very little muscle, and has an "Underweight" BMI. They are very skinny, walk with a prance because they are so light, and always lose arm wrestling matches. A mix between the words wimpy, skinny, and magical.

I don't know about you, but I feel like this really paints a picture in my mind. Again, I don't hate the people who use this word on a daily basis. I just don't particularly like this word and choose not to use it. Maybe this is because I am not underweight by any means, and I don't walk with a prance. Maybe if I was whimsical in description it would all make sense to me. Unfortunately, I am not so I guess I will never know. Sorry for my rant on whimsical. I promise that I do not hate any person that uses this word! I just thought everyone should know the actual definition, because a lot of people are using it incorrectly. Enjoy your week everyone!

I have wanted to do this for such a long time, and now I finally can! Thank you Iphone! Here is a monthly recap in pictures. It is pretty sad. The camera on my phone is nicer than my actual camera. I think I should invest in one. Haha well anyway, here it is!

 This magazine is awesome! Check it out here
 I am so excited for this! Doing it in the summer. Find more info here

 It was a bit of a war.

Brother's birthday cake!
Crazy hair day!

 Happy Valentine's Day

 Pretty darn proud!

Again, I have the best job ever! The chocolate factory.

Well there you have it! I thoroughly enjoyed this! I am excited to keep doing this. Most of these pictures were taken for the Instagram photo day challenge. I have really enjoyed that, because it keeps me taking pictures :) Have a fantastic weekend!

Sarah My Bestest

First off, we have no pictures of us together which is pretty much the stupidest thing on the planet! What kind of best friends are we? haha
Second off, I still love this picture, and we will pretend it is us ok?
Wow... Like seriously where am I even supposed to begin? I honestly can't even begin to describe our friendship. All I can really say is we are sisters. It is as simple as that. We are beyond best friends. You have been my best friend since Kindergarten! I mean really, how many people can say that? I really am just amazed. I couldn't have chosen a more beautiful, strong, funny, happy, down to earth, talented, smart, and overall amazing best friend. I know that we will be friends until we are gross and wrinkly. That is just the way it is. I love you Sarah. We are friends until the end! I am so thankful to have a friend like you. You are always willing to forgive, and you make me remember that life is a lot more simple than people let it be, and that really some things just don't matter and aren't worth worrying about. I can't even explain all the things you have taught me. All I can say is I look up to you so much. You are such an incrredible example. You are just real, and people like that are hard to find now a days. Thank you for always being there for me, and for loving me no matter what. I hope you know that there is never a day I won't be there for you. I would do anything for you. I love you!!



I love you mom. Don't think I was going to forget about you. You were on the list the whole time. People say that it is not good to have a mom as a best friend, but I disagree! Who's better than your mom?! You only ever want what is best for me, and would do anything for me. So thank you. I am so grateful to have a mom like you. I know I get caught up in life pretty quickly, but I always love you. Thanks for always being there for me, and giving me advice. Even if I don't take it sometimes, I still appreciate it. Thanks for helping become the person I am today. I wouldn't be where I am without you. You have reminded me that sometimes love is enough, and to remember to not be so selfish sometimes and think of others. Thank you for that! I love you mama. Thank you for everything.


Dayna Shelby

Is it weird that every time I think about you I just start laughing? Haha In a good way of course. That might be because the majority of our conversations are just looking at each other and laughing. It is honestly great. I am so happy that I have a friend that thinks the same way I do. It is really nice. We don't get to see each other much, but when we do we always seem to have the best conversations, and we just laugh. I would say our friendship is pretty carefree, if that even makes sense. I love hanging out with you. We need to more. I don't know why we don't! We are going to. I am deciding this now. Haha Thanks for just being an awesome hilarious friend. I don't even know how else to put it. It is just awesome. When we were little I always thought we were going to be the best of friends, because your last name is Shelby. I still think this. It is just destined to be. Sorry, but you are stuck with me. Haha You are absolutely beautiful, and I love how independent you are. I think that is why we get along so well. You are amazing Dayna. Call me sometimes. Haha


Troy Bolton

Haha so I literally just saw you like 15 minutes ago. Life is great. I am glad I actually have ONE friend that goes to the U. So we have kind of been friends since like seventh grade. I don't know if I ever could have survived junior high without you. You were exactly the friend I needed at that time of my life, and I am so grateful for your friendship. You are the friend that I now only see every once in a while, but when I do it is like nothing has changed. We just pick up right where we left off! I just wanted to tell you that you are awesome, and thank you for not taking things seriously ever. That is what I love about you. You just go with the flow, and it is awesome! Man, I seriously am just here in the library cafe, laughing to myself about all the things we have been through together. One word... BOYS! haha Hey it all worked out in the end. Well I think you are absolutely beautiful, and you have one of the greatest personalities in the entire world. I am sure of it. Don't change. Deal? Love you.
