See the World

Moved 37 times growing up. You'd think I'd be sick of moving, wrong. I just want to see the world and all the beauty that it has to offer.

I am a firm believer that we learn and grow as a person by getting out of our comfort zone. My comfort zone would be of course in my parents home, with all my friends within driving distance away from me. My comfort zone would include me being warm all the time, and having a nice big queen bed to come home to at night.

However, what is learned from that besides spoiled-ness?

I am finally getting to that age in my life where I am actually able to get out of my comfort zone and try things that I want to try. My first big one was obviously moving to Idaho, one of the coldest places I have ever been, let alone lived. It has taught me a lot and lets just say if there is ever an Ice Age, I got this one in the bag.

My next adventurer that I hope to go on is moving somewhere crazy with my dear husband(no I'm not married).

How cool would that be to experience somewhere totally and completely new with your new life partner? I think it would be amazing. That special bond that we would share would make our relationship that much stronger. Getting married is already taking myself out of my so-called "comfort-zone" just cause it's trying something different and new. Unless you're a 10-time divorcée, then I guess it's not anything new. But for me, it will be a first.

The world is such a big and beautiful thing just waiting for us to go exploring. Take in the beauty no matter where life takes you. I believe God has a plan for us and we may not always end up where we thought we would have, but learn to ride the waves. There is an adventure out there waiting for you.

So with every new years resolution theres room for acceptable failure right...? Well I sure hope so cause I have failed for like 3 weeks straight:( Forgive me?

Well instead of catching y'all up on everything thats happening, I'll just tell you what's going down right now, you wanna know what?
10 thousand pounds of snow that's what!!!!!

Sorry for that little outburst. It's just that we were making progress towards spring! You wanna hear something unheard of...Last week, I saw grass. GRASS. The snow was melting enough to the fact that I could literally walk on grass, never thought I would be so excited. It's the small things in life that make me happy. Clearly.

The grass making an appearance didn't last very long before we got dumped with 5 more feet of fresh pow pow.

I have $47 dollars left in my bank account and there's 47 more days until I get to feel that sweet goodness of the sun on my skin again. Ya I am well aware of the fact that $1 a day is the definition of a broke A college student, whatta do? Makes the whole college experience that much more interesting I guess. 

Since I didn't post on Valentines day I just wanna say I hope everyone of you had a day full of love and smiles. And no that does not have to be from a significant other, but if it was, all the more power to ya! Not all of us are that lucky...yet:) Every single one of you have a sibling, a parent, a friend, a pet, a roommate or whatever that you could have showed love to! 

I know my roommates OUT DID THEMSELVES. I don't know what I did so right in my life to deserve 3 of the most smokin' hot, hilarious, sassy, and spiritual roommates. I was feeling the love from them all day long, and I hope they know how much I love them! 

This is me, giving my word that I'll try to do better on my new years resolution to post once a week, cause no one likes a failure in life.

Cliché Marriage Post

So of course me attending school at the ever so famous BYU-Idaho, or as they call it BYU-I do, I have to throw a marriage post in here somewhere right? You'll all forgive me? K good. 

To no surprise Successful Marriage is one of my required courses here and one that I'm currently taking. For the most part it is just a constant torture for an hour every mon/wed/& fridays, rubbing it in my face that not only do I not have a husband, but nor do I have a fiancé. So when everyone else is sharing their sweet insights from their relationship experience, I just sit there thinking about what I am going to eat later...
but every once in a while I get something out of it.

I thought if I of all people could get something out of this, then I am obligated to share it with the rest of you.
  1. Your body is not just yours. It is a gift for your husband. I promise it is worth waiting to unwrap together. 
  2. The movies lie. Passion is not a contorted exercise on a marble staircase, it's doing the dishes together and lying in bed with your feet touching at the end of a long day.
  3. Marriage is an act of courage, commitment & sacrifice. It is also the most fun you will ever have with your best friend.
  4. A strong man is never threatened by a strong woman.
  5. Your man should love God more than he loves you.
Anyone and everyone who knows me knows how obsessed I am with weddings and all of that stuff. If I could I would get married over and over and over. I wish I could be a wedding planner just cause I love how happy they make everyone feel.
Love is a good thing, and good things take time. Good things come to those who wait. I have to keep telling myself that:)

Cheesy enough for you all? I hope:)
