It's been awhile

I had the privilege of crashing the Waite families' Easter this year. My family decided to leave me for my cousin's fun wedding in St. George. So bummed I missed that. But Easter was still so much fun. Thank you to my sis for taking me in :)


I am back to the busy life. Chaos, long days, tired feet, and restless sleep syndrome. I couldn't be happier. It felt like too long that I was slumming around looking for work like a homeless person. My job at Rumors salon is everything I hoped for to star off my career. Being an assistant isn't so bad, it is actually quite fun. I feel needed, and somewhat like one of those fancy, New York assistants... you know, the ones you see in the movies. Well, sort of. The hairstylist I assist is very busy and that is what i'm most thankful for. She has about 12 clients a day, about 2 or 3 at a time. Anyway it is great, and working in Scottsdale is too much fun. I could just sit and stare at all the fancy cars in the parking lot.


When the lovely & unknown time when I get married someday arrives, I will be wearing a gown similar to this. So magical.

Friday Night Lights

I have a severe obsession with the t.v series Friday Night Lights. Now that I can watch netflix on our t.v it is so easy to watch 3 episodes without realizing. It has made me have an appreciation for football, and each episode sucks you right in. I've cried plenty of times, and I just adore the Coach and his wife's relationship, they are adorable. Then of course there is the ever so dreamy, Tim Riggings. Who else is a fan of this show?! I promise if you watch one episode you will become hooked.

Promise yourself....

"To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others."

Elder Larson wrote me a letter last year that has stood out to me through out his mission. In the letter he re wrote a poem he had come acoss, called "Promise Yourself." In the poem this is one of the phrases. It is my favorite of them all, and I hope to keep this in my head every day.
