It's a brand new day, the sun is shinning :)

Some kind of magic 

Happens late at night 

When the moon smiles down on me 

And bathes me in it's light 

I fell asleep beneath you 

In the tall blades of grass 

When I woke the world was new 

I never had to ask 

It's a brand new day 

The sun is shinning 

It's a brand new day 

For the first time 

In such a long long time 

I know 

I'll be ok 

Most kind of stories 

Save the best part for last 

Most stories have a hero who finds 

You make your past your passed

Hey y'all that read this :) So after Zack and I got back from AZ I got sick but I'm all better now :)  - for the last week or so, we just did things when I felt up to it. I've basically been reading loads of books (just finished the Mockingjay this morning) and I've been playing a ton with ZA (Zackary Allen). We went up to park city outlet malls and got some cute outfits, we went to the temple with his parents:), and we've just been working out! Sooo not a huge suprise, I am unofficially engaged-which somehow everyone knows so I'll just post it. I am waiting for the "proposal" with the real ring but I want to talk about how everything has been crazy busy with booking the honeymoon, temple, photographers, flowers, dress and the bridesmaids outfits lol. I don't like dressing up or weddings much so this has been fun... not really. One thing I do LOVE though, is my dress and the outfits his sisters are wearing :) I was freakin' out a little because I didn't feel like any dress was me and I felt weird all dressed up until the one I choose. It is a little weird but I think it is beautiful and I as long as Zack loves it, it is ok! So on another note, I'm so excited for this weekend, it'll be a real break- Tomorrow we head out to meet mi familia; Rob, Court, MomdeWicko, at the happiest place on earth! Disneyland :)
This weekend will not be as stressful as the Arizona trip because there will be the beach and absolutely NO planning :)!!
Things that are currently making me so happy:
Community (TV show)
ZA (love of my life)
Running (especially around ZA's small town Mapleton--soon to be 'our' small town)
Future plans
"Our songs"/ Road trip mixes
Art City Trolley (A place we ate today=really good)
Henna tattoos
Dancing in the rain
Dream catcher earrings
Eternal marriage 

Utah Lake

Love Always

It's a fairy tale that we made true, I can't believe that i found you...

We went to AZ and we took pics by lake powell, we went up payson canyon- by forest lake. We went out in the desert and watched the sun set and last but not least, we made tie dye shirts to float the river with haha.

did a session in this temple with friends. <3 Nov 20th......

and we danced in the rain.... <3
Zack and I got to spend over a week in Arizona. I've always loved Arizona but having Zack there made it so much better :) We mostly did planning with my mom but we got to swim -of course. We also did all the fun things you see in the pictures and we had Korean food made by my best friends dad (he served his mission in Korea). Rob got home so we got to hang out with him and his friends (kava nights) and then we just ate ways too much delicious foods.  So it was a good trip!  I'm glad to be back, I now get to live with Em and some other great gals :) OH and on the way back we stopped at Chief Yellow Horse lol! and Z got me dream catcher turquoise earrings :) they work! the last too nights I haven't had bad dreams! They hang on a picture of us- across from my bed so I see them when I fall asleep..... <3 ummm OK I'm off now. I have to go to the doctor- I maybe real sick. My throat isn't getting better :/ 

"It was bound to happen and it happened today
Life turned to us to say 'i'm about to go your way'
And it's a simple situation now that we became us
There ain't no rust on the happiness bus"

Here, There And Everywhere

Strawberry Reservoir

I love the way I feel in his arms

SOOOOO freaking cute....

Here, making each day of the year
Changing my life with a wave of her hand
Nobody can deny that there's something there

There, running my hands through her hair
Both of us thinking how good it can be
Someone is speaking but she doesn't know he's there

I want her everywhere and if she's beside me
I know I need never care
But to love her is to need her everywhere
Knowing that love is to share

Each one believing that love never dies
Watching her eyes and hoping I'm always there

I want her everywhere and if she's beside me
I know I need never care
But to love her is to need her everywhere
Knowing that love is to share

Each one believing that love never dies
Watching her eyes and hoping I'm always there

To be there and everywhere
Here, there and everywhere

I sense there's something in the wind

This Feeling.

As it nears the end of the internship, school and living in this house, I feel excited, stressed, nervous, and sad. I love my house and my life but I'm excited to live with Em again & to be finished with BYU for good. ha. I am, however, nervous about getting this HR job at UVU or any full time work there. I need to work there because I've decided that is what will be best so I have so much to do this next week....

So instead of studying for my test tomorrow, after work I went to the temple (I love going there) and then went and ate a papa johns pizza with Z. I finished the night by going with the girls to see step up 3D! Best decision ever. ---You're Sooo "BFAB" born from a boom-box.... it was sweet! I am in love, not with the "hot" one but the skinny nerd that is romantic. Lucky for me, Zack is a hot nerd that is romantic. (also I think Z and I will need to start dancin more... maybe in the rain)

Today was a good stress reliever. I was going to work in the temple, way back in February I got interviewed (this isn't paid if you were wondering) and I told them I was going to be gone by June. Well they need a year commitment at least. So the president, insisted that I may stay and if I do to let him know because he was going to keep my records on file. So if I wanted to then I just need to call him up and come back. I didn't remember this till today. I hope to get a job in the next two to three weeks and then I'll know my schedule so that I can volunteer there. I love it there and going once a week is amazing, but I'd love to work there. I think it'd be good for me. I need to be more loving and serving and patient. Nothing makes you that way but if I"m seeking out opportunities for it.  I know I'll be able to learn and grow to be that way. A lot of how I feel comes from my temple class I just took. Learning about the different temples and all that we can gain from going there has helped me so much. It has changed my experience at the house of the Lord for the better.

 Well Now to update you in some activities of my life with pictures....

Ferne went on her mission! I am so proud and I love her so much. She makes me miss London and those days of sleeping over like every night. Reading scriptures together with Em and talking until she would get cranky and tell us to sleep. haha

The Softball team. My bishops a Stud. We didn't do half bad. Lost one game at the end. Meh- only two of the team had ever played the sport. :)

Zacks sister and cousins came to watch me play. They are sweet for cheering me on. I dont play softball normally... They needed people. I play soccer so this was a new fun thing and support from Zack and his family is always so nice. I love them.

Floated the river and had a picnic costa vida style. Best

We became friends. Zack didn't love him like I did

Spanish Fork Rodeo

So he freakin is strong. he just takes me from his back to his shoulders like I didn't weigh a thing. It was one of the scariest, most fun things. I am scared of heights haha just a little and I love things like not having to use my leg muscles to walk.... Lazy summa days 

He really does light up my world... BUT this is a sorta sweet pic, eh? 

I made a few collages -one for Zack and one for me. This one was mine. His is really cute... and I like to think that this one is sorta cute. Not as good as the other but cute bc we are still like children being best friends in love.

We have been watching the Lightning the last few nights. I love him. Our car rides, Singing, Playing in the rain, car dancing, star gazing, dancing by the car, ummmm anything cheesy but fun that you can think of. haha

I usually am the only one that can make ME laugh. lol.....

Thanks for reading, if anyone does.

Love ya loads.

PS .... I know no one cares or wants to hear it anymore.... I love Zack. haha

Things that I love to do

I love to go dancing, I love being around friends and family that love me and you know aren't judging you. I love Sundays and being able to stop and think and focus on an eternal perspective. Zack gave a talk on Sunday. He did an amazing job. It was about charity. I was reading more about it today and will be giving the thought at FHE about it. I was thinking of all the examples in the scriptures where God has sent his prophets back, continually to preach repentance unto "his" people. It is his children, he is charity. He never gives up on them. Also it says in the scriptures that you wont know him without it. It is because he is charity. It says that as well. We can't see him as he is, nor can we see and truly love others as they are if we can't know charity. Knowing the love that is pure and eternal. Forgiving, accepting, not being easily revoked, not prideful, not looking for yourself but thinking of others. Christ is charity. His life was lived for others and out of pure love. If we can't know that and have that, how can we know him? I loved this weekend of dancing and playing and then being reminded of true love. This is something I was to work on gaining for the rest of my life. I don't think there is a better attribute as a mother than charity or pure love of Christ.

anyways- on that note, here is some weird, fun pictures of this weekend.... the only thing missing is the music video we are finishing making. Be excited because good things are yet to come :) haha

So the first bunch of pics are my friends from high school! we had a 80s girls night. Ate loads of food and zacks sisters came and we went to a party to go dancing, after staring our music video. after the party I went bowling with his sisters and that was lots of fun then home to bed.

I have really been overwhelmed with school and work but luckly Zack saves me from that. Example- today him and his little bro surprised me and took me to lunch and tonight we are going meteor shower watching :) One of my fav things to do! Anyways- my life- work (hr stuff), stats, physical science and a religion. Yay. 

(stats and ps suck! just so you're aware. lol)

Love ya always Xx
