Father's Day

...all things my dad is and more.
I am one lucky girl to have the father that I have
He is always there when I need him

My dad...
 makes me laugh when I am sad.
makes me smile when I am angry.
makes me feel beautiful every second of every day
makes my trials into experiences.

He is the dad who dances at Disneyland 
{in front of an entire crowd might I add}

He is the dad who get's up to teach seminary
He is the dad who doesn't go to bed until all his kids are 
home and safe
He is the dad who makes us mickey mouse pancakes
He is the dad who beats us all in cards
He is the dad who is home every night for family dinner
He is the dad who answers {my}
numerous and tearful phone calls.

Thank you dad for everything you do.
You truly are the greatest dad
with the biggest heart.
I love you so much
Happy Father's Day

Bike Ride

After coming home from work
Shannon and I decided to go on a bike ride
which turned into a 2 1/2 hour one!
Gorgeous weather, GG, and a great friend.
Nothing beats it.

Summer Days

Goodness friends
It's been far too long.
The sunshine has taken over my blogging abilities
We have had a week straight of sunshine.
And you can believe that I have taken full advantage.

Kevin {my gorgeous roommate Hayli's fiance}
hung us a hammock.
Which is where I have done most of my summer reading
Best thing about homework!
Which means no reading about all things nursing
So I have been filling my mind with everything else
{which includes lots of Bachelorette, So You Think You Can Dance, and Without a Trace}
My most recent book...Mudbound.
I think you should all check it out.
Anyway, back to my summer.
I had these cuties for a night

Meet Sam and Lucy.
These cute little kitties spent the night with me and the roomies
while their mamma's were in California.
Sadly, the landlord found out
so we had to part a little early

Friday night, Shannon and I headed to the Orem Fair
and caught the fireworks
{yes, Katy Perry's song firework was playing in my head the entire time}

So summer has been great
Lots more summer and sunshine to come!
I hope everyone is enjoying their's

My little sister Macey graduated from 8th grade as Valedictorian!
Way to go lil sis!
Love you!

Hello Friends

Goodness, it has been a while!
Can't get enough of the weather.
Last two days it has been nothing but sunshine
You can believe GG has been getting plenty of rides!
Lots of hammock laying on my porch
Lots of country music
{because we all know country music is that much better in the summertime}
Lots of watermelon
and lots of skirts
Its been grand.
Enjoy the sunshine!

Fun Facts

Oh man, with no school (aka no life)
my blogging days have been desperately slacking.
What can I say.
It seems like blogging just can't take over my time 
of doing nothing.
reading books.
watching lots and lots of movies.
spending time with my family.
and friends.
So with no work today
and plenty of access hollywood
I figured I can break out the good ol' computer
and type up some fun facts
{whose idea I got from this darling girl}

I have very very curly hair
but will never wear it curly
{unless I am coming out of a pool or the ocean}

I don't drink coffee
but my all time favorite ice cream is coffee.
so. dang. good.

I just got a brand new camera
{Sony-Alpha NEX-5}
so I walk around thinking I am the world's 
best photographer.

With no school, I have read 5 books
1 political.
4 romantic.

My daddy calls my freckles
angel kisses

3 of my toes are all the same length
weird I know.

I love waking up to the rain
but hate the rain during the day

I always try to wear heels to work
but can never make it past 2 hours.
{hats off to you women that can last longer}

My sisters truly are my best friends.

Happy Monday everyone!
Bachelorette starts today..whoop whoop

Wonderful Weekend

Any weekend with my family
is a great one!
I was lucky enough to go home to California
last weekend for Mackenzie's 
Wedding Open House
It was so much fun to be home!
How I miss it!
{even if my new brother got my room, and I bunked up with brandon}
The open house was wonderful
My mom did an amazing job
{she is kind of awesome...if you haven't caught on yet}

I flew home on Monday, but was okay because
the whole gang came out again this weekend for the actual wedding.
We made the trip up to Logan.
Mackenzie made a beautiful bride, and I am so lucky to have
another brother in my family.
I love you Aaron and Mackenzie!
{pictures from the wedding will come soon}
