Dear Universe…

I don’t ask for a lot (most of the time) but there are a few things I would really enjoy owning that I don’t have the budget for at this point in my life. So if you would be so kind as to provide a giant lump of money to land in my lap or perhaps just send a wealthy suitor my way I’d be much obliged.



P.S. All pictures are linked to their respective sites for ordering purposes. Thank you universe. :D

Touching Day

What a special day!  Earlier today I was at the temple waiting in the lobby people watching (a favorite pastime of mine) there were loads of people in a hurry today.  People rushing in and out.  Some were obviously there for a wedding while others were hustling in to make good time.  Then I saw an elderly man who was on his way out.  He was walking slowly and not without effort.  He was carrying his bag and his hat as he made his way toward the door and when he saw something on the floor he had so much respect for the building he was in that he bent down to pick it up.  Then, only a few feet further he arrived at the door and waited until he was outside to again, put his bag down and place his hat on his head.  It probably doesn’t seem like a big thing to some people, but it was a very touching gesture to me.

Also, the Olympics in general always touch my heart, but this year seems to be even more so with the tragic passing of the Georgian luge athlete Nodar Kumaritashvili.  It was very moving to see how everyone reacted to the situation.  My heart just broke when the Georgian athletes came into the Opening Ceremony.  The solidarity that their whole team had, as well as some of the other athletes who wore black armbands made me tear up.  I was so glad when they took a minute of silence as well as the flags being lowered to half staff.  I really feel it was so appropriate given the circumstances.  All in all, the opening ceremony was seriously awesome!  I LOVED the performance and it was executed perfectly (except for the torch not working quite right).  The imagery was BEAUTIFUL and the performance was just fantastic!  I love the Olympics!  It is a time where the world just takes a break and focuses on all of the best things and the things we have in common instead of their differences.  The world gets the chance to get together and cheer for a common goal.  Athletic excellence.  Anyway, It was a great day. :)

Condo Progress

Today I accepted the counter offer that I was given.  It wasn’t as low as I wanted to be, but it’s not that much different so I’ll find a way to make it work.  I am SO excited!!!  I can hardly believe that it’s all happening!  I have to kick my butt into high gear now because we have a closing date of March 1st!  Yikes!  Lots and Lots to do in that time! 

In other news, my mom bought me a REALLY cute set of dishes and some freaking fantastic red pans!  I’m so excited!  I can hardly wait to get into my new condo and start using all of my new things!  I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m even excited to go in and deep clean the whole thing!  After that, it will most definitely be party time!  Everyone has to come and see me when I move in! :D

Disney Princesses on Ice!

I found this in my saved drafts.  This is clear from back in November so sorry about the delay.

For Kim’s birthday, I bought us tickets to go see the Disney Princesses on Ice show.  It was so fun!  We were not even the only people who were there without kids!  There were a few couples on dates and some groups of ladies who were probably having a fun girls night out.  It was great!  The whole show was really fun and it was even better being there with my Seester!  She’s one of my best friends and I LOVE spending time with her.  Here are some pictures from the show.  Don’t judge, most of them were taken with my cell phone so the quality isn’t as good as it could have been.

IMG00300I tried to get a decent picture of Belle the whole show, but her back was always to our side of the audience by the time I got the camera to work.


So last fall there were a couple of things that I never blogged about. 

1) My cute friend Jenny moved away to do more airline school.  Still not 100% sure what she’s going to be doing, but she’s going to be freaking awesome at it and she’s going to look amazing to boot! :D  Just sad that she’ll be so very far away now.

2) I went through the temple.  For those of you who are not LDS and read my blog it’s a really special experience where we get the opportunity to make promises and commitments to ourselves and to God.  It was the best experience in my life so far.

3) Thanksgiving: I ate myself stupid.  Enough said there.

4) My car was in the parking lot one night just before Christmas and some guy with a giant truck backed onto the hood of my car and tried to run, but two great guys got his license plate and we tracked him down.  It was sad because my car had just been fixed from the accident and had to go back to the shop, but it’s all better now.

5) Christmas: It was a good year.  I got things I need for my new condo.  Dishes and such,  Good time with family and friends.

6) New Year’s Eve: Party at my friend Jake’s house.  Pictures don’t turn out all too well when taken on a camera phone with weird lights and strobes going off, but I looked cute and it was way fun and that’s what’s important. :D

7) Other than going to work, I’ve been keeping busy going to the gym with my trainer 3 times a week, dance class once a week, fight training with my friend, Nick (who happens to be a professional MMA fighter) and ward activities.  I have a great singles ward and I’m having a really good time getting to know them and going to some of the fun activities that they put on.  Like ice skating!

Pretty sure I haven’t been on ice skates for YEARS!  Thanks to the guys who kept me on my feet and for Jake for taking this picture.  It’s nice to have proof that I did it!

I guess that’s all for now.  I really am going to be better about blogging.  I’m sure in the near future I will definitely have some things that are blog worthy. *cough* new condo *cough* Keep your fingers crossed though!  Nothing has been set in stone yet.  Good times though!

Playing THE Game

It always seems like there is some kind of game to play so that you can please this person or get that thing you want and it can get tiresome.  I am right now trying to play the game where I please my family, don’t offend someone where I should have the option on how to spend my hard earned money and playing the game of buying a condo.  Yes, it’s true.  After all this time I’m finally striking out on my own and signing away my life to the ‘M’ word: Mortgage.  It’s by far the most frightening word I’ve ever had to deal with in my life thus far.  For that matter, it seems like all of the good things that are a little scary in my life/future are M words.  Mortgage, Marriage, Motherhood… But I digress.  So I’ve been back and forth on a couple of condos that I really, really like but I am not willing to overextend myself for these places and it’s frustrating that they aren’t being a little easier to work with.  I understand when I go in at a lower offer it’s not necessarily going to be a done deal at the lower price, but seriously!?  Let’s try playing a little nicer people.  It’s my first place and I really want to live there!  Plus, you need to get rid of it!  Now that we had that talk let’s get down to business.  Pen anyone?
