Peace Out 2013... Hello 2014

Happy New Years! Ok so i'm not going to sit here and apologize for not posting at all during 2013 and i'm certainly not going to promise i'll be better in 2014, because I don't know if i will! Nevertheless, I do feel like I should comment on this past year, because quite a bit has happened:) So 2013.... where do I begin? Lets start with me turning 16! Its crazy but I am currently 100% dateable, and i'll soon have my license, all thanks to my big 16th birthday. Shortly after turning 16, I finished out my sophomore year at Mesa High. I'm not going to lie, my sophomore year was rough, but i'm grateful for the learning experience. Then I had Girls Camp and I had the opportunity to bring my non-member friend, Valencia, with me. This specific year at camp really had an impact on me. I think it was a real growing experience for me, and a lot of it had to do with the girls. It was my first year as a YCL and I absolutely loved it! Anyways, lets just skip ahead to my junior year! I decided not to play basketball anymore, and I really miss it but it was definitely the right decision for me. On the other hand, I decided to play badminton! Surprisingly it was insanely fun! I loved my teammates and the experience as a whole. I actually had a pretty good season. I went undefeated in my singles matches and I only lost two doubles matches the whole season! Oh and since I'm currently 16, I got to go to Homecoming this year. My date was Logan Millett and we had a great night! Homecoming week was epic.... enough said. Anyways, 2013 was a year to remember and i'm truly thankful for all the experiences it brought!!

Well one year is over and another one is beginning! My New Years resolutions are no more soda, to run on the treadmill at least 4 times a week, and to get my Young Women's medallion. I have a few other resolutions but I really don't feel like posting them. Anyways, I think 2014 is going to be whatever i make it to be. So i'm going to make sure that 2014 is, without a doubt, mind-blowing. Peace out 2013... Hello 2014!

   Ok I know I've been terrible at posting, but hey what else is new. So I am now an official sophomore!!!!:) I am loving being back at my beautiful Mesa High! But unfortunately I took all weighted classes this year. So I am swamped with homework. Between homework and workouts and personal progress and mutual and school and church and basketball and my practically non-existent social life, I have no time to just relax. Anyways homecoming week starts tomorrow!!!!!!!!! I absolutely adore homecoming week.... it makes me so insanely happy. There's spirit week stuff going on and the parade and the carnival and I'm help making the float and the assembly and the game that night and it's a half day on Friday! And of course there's always the dance on Saturday, but i can't go (thank-you mom and dad). Anyways I believe it's time for me to post Happy List #3, so here it is.
1) Swinging on swings
2) Window Shopping
3) Colored Ducktape
4) Finding a 20 dollar bill in your coat from last winter
5) Suspenders
6) Bubble Wrap
7) Contributing to Intelligent Conversations
8) Blushing
9) Piles of Clean Laundry
10) Spinning in Office Chairs
Well its time for me to log off. So peace out all you wonderful people!:)

Summer Awesomeness

   Hola everyone:) Well this summer so far has been pretty good. I just spent a lot of time in Eagar with my big sis Amber. But before I headed to Eagar, I had basketball camp and weight training. It was fun but super exhausting!!! I was always extremely tired, but it was totally and completely worth it! I just wish that i could have finished it out, because sadly i ended up fracturing my wrist during basketball! I was so sad because then I couldn't play sports for the rest of the summer and without sports i basically have no life:( But I did get my cast off a week ago! I'm so glad to have my hand back! Anyways, after camp I went up to Eagar and spent some time with the family. I rode some horses and some quads and ate the best bean and cheese burro of my entire life and just chilled with those dorks that i call family :) Then the 4th of July rolled around and it was a ton of fun, as always. Its probably one of my favorite holidays and ever year it reminds me how lucky i am to live in this beautiful country where brave men and women fight for all of our freedoms and keep us  safe. We are truly blessed. Well that about sums up my summer so far. So before i sign off, i have to admit that i'm totally one of those dorks whose always finding motivational quotes. And I found one the other day that i thought was pretty tight. So I'm going to share it with you:)
Believe in yourself and all that you are.
Know that there is something inside of you that is greater than any obstacle.
-Nike
Well on that note, goodnight ya'll!

Be Loyal to the Royal within You

    I just got home from GIRLS CAMP! I was a 4th year this year and we were up at Taylor Ranch. It was so much fun, and our theme was 'Be Loyal to the Royal within You'. So for the 4th year hike we went up to Horton Springs, and it was about an 8 mile hike. Me and Shelbie basically led the entire hike. We got to the top 20min before anyone else and we got to the bottom 1st as well. Then we had the opportunity to go back and help girls with their packs. I'm not going to lie, I was pretty proud of the both of us. Once we actually got there, it was really pretty, especially the little creek that was running through our camp. Our actual girls camp was a little strange this year. We didn't have skit night, and we had shorter programs so it was kinda weird. Don't get me wrong, it was still way fun, just weird. I loved my YCL's this year! My YCL's were Shayley Shaver and Christal Estes and i had an absolute blast with them. They're way cool. Anyways Girls Camp was awesome, as always. I can't wait to be a YCL next year! Well I've got stuff to do, so i'll talk to ya'll later! Bye Bye:)

Summer Lovin

  School is OUT as of today! Summer 2012 is finally here and its going to be the best summer yet. I can just feel it. Since today was the last day of school it was kinda bittersweet because, even though i'm so happy to be out of school, i'm going to miss all my friends over summer. Freshman year was amazing and part of me is sad to see it go. I officially love Mesa High and all of its traditions.I especially love all the students that go there that i'm lucky enough to call my friends. Oddly, I think i'm going to miss my seminary teacher, Bro. Bonham, the most. He moved to Oklahoma so i'm probably never going to see him again but at least i got to have him for my first year of seminary. And seminary was probably my favorite class all year long. I love the gospel so much and seminary has only made me love it even more. And I have Bro. Bonham to thank for that. Anyways, i'm leaving for Girls Camp in 4 days and i'm so excited, especially for the 4th year hike! When I get back I'll have sports camps for about a month and after that i'll just be chillin like villain and partying hard of course! Well it looks like i'm running out of things to say so i'll see ya'll later! Toodles!

(P.S. Just in case anyone was wondering the dance festival went great! It was a blast and just flat out awesome!)

2012!!! i think yes

 
Oh dang it looks like i've waited too long in between posts again! Sorry guys=( Anyways, its 2012!!!!! and the world hasn't ended yet, shocking right? Well I know its already April, but i'm telling you my New Years resolution anyways. My New Years resolution, well one of them, is to quit drinking soda. So far i've been really good about the no soda thing. Now in February, my sister, Laxitive, married this guy. This guy's name is Austin Goodman, and as weird as they are together, I'm happy for them. So here they are at the temple, cheezy grins and the whole shabang. 




   
Ok so lately we've been practicing for our 4 stake dance festival, and its been a blast! I love my ward, my friends, my stake, mesa high, my religion and the fact that this dance festival has reminded me of how much i love these things. I can't wait for the performance tomorrow=) I don't know if you guys remember, but like forever ago i said that i would start posting mini happy lists on here so here is mini happy list #2

1) Going for a walk with no destination in mind

2) Collapsing into bed when you're completely massively exhausted

3) Bow Ties

4) Foods that no one can eat gracefully

5) Pinky Swears

6) Trees that touch and form a canopy over everything

7) Pockets (so dang handy)

8) When its sunny and raining at the same time

9) Tripping and realizing no one saw you (love it when this happens)

10) That moment in the movie/ TV show where the couple finally gets together

B-Ball

I'm extremely happy right now! I've officially survived the 1st half of my 1st season of Mesa basketball! Oh ya I probably should've mentioned that I made team in the 1st place. Well it has been an absolute blast! I love this sport so much and my team and coach are pretty cool too. It's just been an amazing season so far. Well this is just one of those short posts....... so I'll talk to y'all later! Adios
