caitlin tara.

caitie is one of my very best friends.  she is such an amazing girl.  she is loyal, caring, loving, hardworking, and super funny.  i moved in with her in november.  best idea ever.  we've had some fun times.  caitie and i didn't become friends until the last month of high school.  i'm sure when people from high school see us now, they are so surprised that her and i are friends.  i didn't really know caitie that well.. and she thought i was a stuck up brat.  now that we are friends, she realized that she judged me wrong and i just come off as a very confident person.  i'm glad that is all over now.  i honestly don't know what i would do without caitie's friendship.  she came into my life when i needed her most, and she hasn't left.  i know that our friendship will be a life long friendship.  i wonder how things would be different if we had been friends in high school.  i don't know that we'd be as close as we are now.  i'm thankful for this beautiful red headed girl that i have in my life.  i can never thank her enough for all she has done for me.  we've made some great memories and more are on their way.  caitlin tara, you are incredible. thank you. i love you :)
we were matching for church one day.. accident i swear.

going to church!

cruisin in the truck
yes.. i know. weirdest combo ever. she's a strang one;)

we have candy runs sometimes.

recovery road.

hello bloggers. missed me? didn't think so. haha but i'm back.  i had surgery a week ago today.  and now i'm on the road to recovery.  everything went well with the surgery.  there was only one problem.  i had to get an epidural.  yes, epidural. and i didn't even have a baby!! ouch.. it took the anesthesiologist about an HOUR to put it in.  that shouldn't happen. it doesn't happen.  i don't even remember longer than 5 minutes of it.  they sedated me more and more i think.  so they cut me open and peeled away muscles, ligaments, etc, and cut my bone in 3 different places and then screwed it in place and sewed me up.  you can see the x-ray below. remember that blood i donated to myself before surgery? well we used to pints of it.  i had 2 blood transfusions after surgery.  they made such a big difference.  i had more energy and i actually had color back in my face.  i had lots of visitors at the hospital.  someone was with me every single minute.  i loved that.  you know kirst, my best friend, well she wasn't suppose to come home from cedar till saturday.  she showed up on wednesday at the hospital and surprised me! it was the BEST suprpirse!!  caitie stayed over night with me on tuesday night, kirst stayed wednesday night, and lace stayed thursday night.  i have the greatest friends.  carlee came and saw me a few times.  one of the times she gave me a manicure. how cute! i got to go home on friday night.  i was more than ready to be home.  now i've just been in bed.  my days consist of sleeping, reading, watching movies, and sometimes eating.  my meds have taken away my appetite though.  good diet plan right? ha you'd think so.  but nope. the doctor says i have to eat.  so it's hard to do that. i look at food and i wanna throw up.  so i'm workin on it.  i love visitors, so if you are bored, come visit me :) this will be a long road, but i can do it.  i just need the love and support from family and friends.  which i am getting and love it. i will try and blog some more now that i just sit around all day.  but i might not have too much to say haha. we will see. wish me luck and a get well soon!

i look so sick :( best friends :)

x-ray. 4 big screws. 1 small screw.

not ready.

one week from tomorrow.  am i freaking out? a little bit. okay, maybe a lot..  someone asked me the other day if i've had a crying day for it all yet. and i have. but i think i need another one.  i can honestly say that i have never been this nervous or scared for anything in my entire life. i'm going to need all the love, prayers, and support i can get.  so please, send them this way.  thanks.  i'm not ready to say bye to dancing, working out, or even walking yet. i'm not ready. but that doesn't matter, cause its happening. ugh.

Of course I like the whole single, party, fun thing.
But sometimes, I wouldn't mind the whole cuddling, holding hands, I'm-his-girl thing.

yup thats how i'm feelin right about now.. especailly working in the mall, i see SO MANY couples.  i kinda would like that to be me.. is that dumb? lets just say i'm pretty jelly (jealous) of all those cute girls with the cute guys holding their hand.. oh well. i'm still waiting. 

but... HEY! YOU! UP THERE! YEAH YOU, i'm ready.

hello, again.

its been way too long since i've posted. i'm sorry about that. well to anyone who reads this thing.  i've got some great news! i passed my state boards!!! woooo! it feels good to get that over with.  i graduate from hair school in 12 DAYS.  and surgery in 13...  i am so ready to be done with school.  i can't wait! but those 13 days could go by a little slower, i'd be fine with that. i've given blood 3 times.  i had to donate it to myself for surgery.  now i just need to stay well and healthy and i'll be good to go! i've got quite a few things to get accomplished before i'm done with school.  so.... wish me luck!! i'll try and keep you updated.

3 weeks.

3 weeks from tomorrow = surgery

surgery = me being scared, nervous, frustrated, and lots of anxiety

the other night i went to the gym and i just danced in the open room they have.  i just put my ipod in and improved for awhile.  during one of the songs, i started to cry.. i am honestly getting so nervous about all of this.  so many things could go wrong.  they won't, but they could.  i'm very frustrated with the recovery time and what i can't do.  i can't drive for 6 weeks. i can't run or jump for 4-6 months. which means i can't dance for 4-6 months.  you might as well KILL ME.  i literally danced and cried that night at the gym.. i texted my mom and told her how frustrated and scared i was.  that made me cry even more.  this will be tough for me.  really tough.  I CAN DO THIS. i will need a lot of love and support from family and friends, but i know i can do this.  

i want december 12th to hurry up and come, but december 13th can stay away for a little while..
p.s. i will be done with all my 2,000 hours at hair school on the 12th :)

crazy month.

for the next month, i might be going crazy.. ever since my surgery got scheduled, everything else has to get done before that. i am stressing out. major.  i start FINAL PHASE tomorrow.  this is where i have a class for a week that prepares me every step of the way for my state boards.  i'm excited and a little nervous.. so i finish with those classes on monday the 21st. then on wednesday the 23rd, i go to SLC to TAKE MY STATE BOARDS. really?? that just moved up a month or two from when i thought i was gonna take them. soooooo scary.  but that is honestly the ONLY day i can take them.  cause i sure as heck am not waiting to take them 4 months after i graduate. that'd be dumb. 

for the next 3 wednesday's in a row i have to go give blood. i'm donating it.  to myself.  yup i said myself.  weird huh? but i lose so much blood during surgergy that they have to do a blood transfusion afterwards.  its much safer to use your own blood rather than the hospital's supply.  i have never given blood before... wish me luck!!

i am going to go to the gym everyday to workout and to dance.  i won't be able to even run or jump for 6 MONTHS after my surgery.  that is NOT okay.  i will probably go insane. but really. 

well wish me luck with all the crazy things i have going on within the next 29 days! i'm gonna need all i can get!

happy monday bloggers!

so as you all know, i'm in hair school.  my hair changes a lot.  not EVERY week like my mom always says.. haha. so i've had some different colors and cuts. and i want YOUR opinion! so speak up. tell the truth. you won't hurt my feelings. i promise. i've had people straight up tell me they hate my hair. so don't be afraid to share your honest opinion. what do you like best?

long and blonde.

long and dark.

short, blonde, with red block color.

short and red.

so tell me what you think :)

December 13th.

today i went to the doctor. this was a follow up appointment. more info about my hip.  this time we were scheduling surgergy... scary thought.  the doctor told me he was booked out for the next 3 months.  busy man.. my eyes started to fill up with tears and i almost started to cry.  he told me he would try to figure something out.  he said he would move two of his patients from the 13th to the 12th.  he normally doesn't work on that day, but he was trying to make room for me.  at the moment, his assistent walked in the room and said that somebody just called and cancelled their surgery on the 8th so that is open now.  he was able to move the patients to that day.  someone is definitely looking out for me. so i'm scheduled for the 13th of December. that is SO soon.... ah. i'm freaking out a little bit.  i was so worried about hair school and wondering if i was going to be able to finish by then.  so when i got to school, i went and talked to my advisor who is in charge of hours.  so i have to have 2000 hour to graduate.  she figured out that if i start going to school on saturday's, including this saturday, then i will be able to finish.  So now i will be going to school monday thru saturday and i won't miss anything.  if i do this, i will finish school on December 12th.  the DAY before surgery.  everything has been working out so perfectly.  i know i'm suppose to have this surgery. so i will be taking my state boards on the 23rd of November. i don't wanna talk about it... i will be in the hospital for a minimum of 3 days.  i would love some visitors:) don't hesitate to drop by and say hi, maybe bring me some flowers, treats, balloons, or a stuffed animal.  i'm open for anything! for 6 WEEKS i will not be able to put any weight on my right leg.  this means no driving for 6 weeks. wow. i might forget how to drive a manual.... and the WORST part.... i will be on crutches for 4 months. yes i just said 4 MONTHS. that is insane. i will be exhausted and have huge arms by the end of that.. haha.  so i will be spending most of december and some of janurary in front of the t.v. watching movies.  so if you wanna join me, feel free :) i will be starting school at UVU on Jan. 9th i believe. so walking around campus on crutches, in the snow.... sounds like so much fun... ugh.. soooo wish me luck with all that i have coming up within the next month! imma need all i can get!

inspired. uplifted.

yesterday i attended a good friend's farewell.  Elder Zack Oldham.  he gave an amazing talk.  he will be such a great missionary.  i know he will bring many people into the Gospel.  he shared a poem that touched me.  i literally had tears rolling down my face as he read this.  (so did many other people in the congregation). it may be a little lengthy... but TOTALLY worth reading.  please ejoy.  thank you elder oldham.

He's Been There Before

The alarm rings at 6:30; I stumble to my feet.
I grab my companion's bedding and pull off his sheet.
A groan fills the room, is it already time to arise?
It seems like just a second ago I was able to shut my eyes.

The morning activities follow - study, prayer, and such.
When it's time to leave the apartment, you feel you haven't accomplished much.
"We have a super day planned," my comp says with a grin.
I lowly utter a faithless breath, "Yeah, if anyone lets us in."

With the word of God and my faithful Schwinn, we ride off in the street
Prepared to face another day of humidity and heat.
It's 9:30 in the evening, the day is almost through;
My companion and I are riding home, not accomplishing what we thought to do.

We ride up to the mailbox, hoping to receive a lot.
Only to look inside and hear my echo reverberate "Air Box."
We go up to our apartment, the day is now complete.
The only thing to show for our work is a case of blistery feet.

It's past 10:30 PM, my companion is fast asleep.
Silence engulfs me all about and I begin to weep.
In the midst of sadness, I kneel down to pray;
I need to talk to Father, but I'm not sure what to say.

"Oh, Father," I begin, "What happened to us today?
I thought we'd teach somebody, but everyone was away.
My hands, my aching hands - worn, hurt and beat;
If our area was any smaller, we'd have knocked every street."

"Why on missions are the days so much alike?
The only difference about today was the flat tire on my bike.
Will you send some cooler weather? The heat is killing me.
I sweat so bad, it gets in my eyes; It's very hard to see."

"Why do I have to wear a helmet, isn't your protection enough?
People always laugh at me and call me stupid stuff.
Please send us investigators so I may give them what they lack;
I want to give them Books of Mormon, the weight of them hurts my back."

"And what about my family? They don't have much to say,
I'm sick of not hearing from home, day after day after day.
Oh Father, why am I here, am I just wasting time?
Sometimes I just want to go home, I'm sorry but that's on my mind."

"My companion, Heavenly Father, what are you giving me?
The way he rides his bicycle, I don't think he can see.
Now you have it, I can't go on, I don't know what to do;
That, my Father in Heaven, is the prayer I have for You."

My prayer now finished I stand up, then jump right into bed.
I need my rest for tomorrow; we have another long day ahead.
Sleep starts to overtake me, I seem to drift away,
Then it seems a vision takes me to another time and another day.

I'm standing alone on the hill, the view is very nice;
A man walks towards me and says, "My name is Jesus Christ."
Tears of joy well up inside, I fall down to His feet,
"Arise," He states, "Follow Me to the shade - you and I need to speak."

My attention's toward the Savior, total and complete.
He says, "Your mission is similar of what happened to Me,
I understand how you feel, I know what you're going through;
In fact it would be fair to say I've felt the same as you."

"I even know how you felt when no one listened to you.
At times I felt not quite sure what else I could do.
I know you don't like to ride a bicycle, for you a car would be sweet;
Just remember the donkey I rode wasn't equipped with 21 speeds."

"I understand you don't like sweating, in fact it's something you hate;
I remember when I sweat blood from every pore, oh the agony was great!
I see you don't like your companion - you'd rather have someone else.
I once had a companion named Judas who sold my life for wealth."

"It's hard to wear a helmet and have people make fun of you.
I remember when they put thorns on my head and called me King of the Jews.
So you feel burdened down by the weight of your pack.
I recall how heavy the cross was when they slammed it on my back."

"Your hands hurt from tracting and knocking on doors all day.
I guess when they pounded nails into mine, I ached in a similar way.
It's hard not to hear from home when your family's not there to see;
I lost my communication on the cross and cried, "Father, why hast Thou forsaken Me."

He embraced me with His arms, His light filled me with His love,
With tears in my eyes I watched as He went back to the Father above.
I stood with awe and wonder when a beep rang in my head,
I listened and heard the alarm, then realized I was in my bed.

My companion let out a groan, "6:30 already, no way!"
I sat up and said, "Come on, I'll even carry your scriptures today!"
No matter what we go through, when we feel we can't take more,
Just stop and think about Jesus Christ, He has been there before.

always remember that Jesus Christ knows each of us, and he knows what we are going through.  He can help us through anything and everything.  He has been there before. and He wants to help you.  His hand is open and ready for you to grab onto.  just reach and He'll be there.


i honestly don't know why it hurts.  do you??

why does it hurt to see someone that you used to like, be with somebody else?  especially when they didn't treat you right or respect you. that doesn't make sense to me.  so why when i see it happening does my tummy start to feel sick...?  instead of feeling bad for the girl and hoping he does't treat her the way he treated me, i'm hurt that he found someone else? hahahahaha. all i can do is laugh.  cause i honestly don't know the answer.  but i hate this feeling. so much. 

maybe...... its cause they were hanging out when we were together and he said they were just friends.  OBVIOUSLY there were feelings earlier.  right?? ah i don't know. ugh. help me. someone.

seven things.

when i saw that this girl blogged and tagged people, i thought for sure she'd tag me. but she didn't. so of course this girl did. thanks kirst. so here it goes, my 7 things.

1.  i carry everything on one side. when i have to carry a load of stuff, i put it all in one hand and on one side, usually my right side.  i will litterally being carrying something with my pinky before i use my other hand. its weird.

2.  i get one random hiccup at least 3 times a day.  honestly, i don't know if you can even call it a hiccup.  its the weirdest, loudest noise.  sometimes people think i'm yelling "woah", "no", "what", and many other random words. i don't know where i got it from, but it can be extrememly embarrassing..

3.  i"m adopted. if you've read my blog since day one, then you already know the story. if you haven't, check it out here . its worth reading about. promise.

4.  i like making pinky promises.  i always say, "pinky promise?" when i want someone to promise me something. i will NEVER break a pinky promise.  it just shouldn't happen. ever.  its not just a pinky promise... a pinky promise is a big dealyou make it, you keep it.

5.  i love little kids.  i don't want to sound like a creep or a pedophile. cause i'm not.  i just have been around kids a lot in my life.  i have danced since i was 3 and have been around little kids in dance.  i have taught dance for the past 3 going on 4 years and i teach primary now.  i love watching kids learn and grow. it warms my heart.

6.  i always fall for the d-bags.  i don't know why this happens. but it does. i hate it more than anything.  i give my heart away too easily and they break it faster than i give it to them.  not fair at all.  there are only four guys i can think of that i've "dated" that weren't d-bags.  thats a little out of a lot.  i would go back to one of them in a heart beat...

7.  i'm obsessed with zombies.  this obsession started a few months ago when the beautiful Caitie O'Gwin introduced me to the tv series The Walking Dead.  you could say that its amazing.  last night we watched the premiere of the second season. we had a party for it.  with lots of people and food. the whole shabang.  its THAT good.  i'm stoked for the second season. 

so now i'm suppose to tag people... but nobody reads this blog anyways.. so i won't.  haha. oh well.

mint chip ice cream.
raspberry simply lemonade.
sour cream and onion lays stax.

she's a crazy girl. but we love her anyways:)
it was actually pretty good if you ate it enough apart that you didn't taste the previous food in your mouth.

gross. and yummy.

somtimes i crave me some smartwater. its delightful.  sometimes, might be an understatement.  i crave smartwater everyday.  and i will argue with anyone who says ALL water tastes the same. cause it definitely does NOT. thank you smartwater for quencing my thirst. people always ask me if it makes me smarter.. really people, really? its water.
