I had to work all day yesterday so this post is a day late. Yesterday my sister Lauren turned 24....ew. HA just kidding that's not even old, but it's weird to think about. Here are some of the many fabulous things about Chuck (Laur)

-She is equally as weird as me, if not weirder

-We have photo shoots...wish I had our sophisticated laughing picture to put up

-She's my only biological sister. Growing up I'd tell her she was my favorite sister to get her to be nice to me. She'd say that she was my only sister, and I was shot down. Now I say that she's my favorite biological sister. For some reason that sounds a lot cooler. Wish I had some of the other pictures of us in these Easter dresses. We have HILARIOUS ones.

She appreciates the same things as me and shares a lot of the same interests with me. Woops how did this picture get on here?

 She lets people walk all over her hahaha get it? That is a lie by the way. Chuckie is very generous though and is always helping others out.

The camera loves her

She is very creative and has so many awesome ideas. She planned her wedding down to every last detail, and it was stunning.

 -She's a great listener and always has great advice for me.

This picture was taken in the same room that our karaoke video was shot in. Lauren and I thought we didn't have any video documentation of our childhood. We were wrong, very wrong. We found old videos and watched them. Lauren and I danced and sang karaoke in here, and it is the best representation of our childhood...and kinda now. We still dance and sing all the time, same moves and all...ok hopefully not actually.

Happy birthday Chuckie! Yay 24! Like I always say: "27 is is the peak of fertility" You've still got a few good years left in you ;)

If you go to BYU take Human Development from Larry Nelson

I LOVE my Human Development class! Today we watched 3 different births on video. I am the worst when it comes to blood, sliced flesh and needles. Although the c-section almost knocked me out, I really enjoyed the overall experience. Is it strange that watching it made me so excited to have my own children?(it won't be any time soon don't sweat) Even though it seems completely horrible, I can't wait. My teacher kept making jokes about pregnancy and was sharing the funniest stories about it. I wish I had that class every day. He has such a passion when he teaches, and he shares the most tender stories. He talked about holding his daughter for the first time today, and I was almost in tears (mind you I cry very easily...Finding Nemo still gets me every time. John Q? Yep, and I'm usually alone sobbing). This class makes me want to study all about Human Development. It is so fascinating! I love my school....great day!

Result of Little Cousins+Photobooth

Lauren is watching the Maglebys this week so I came over to party! We got a little carried away with the photobooth...
I'm pretty sure the highlight of my night was watching Josie play Just Dance on the Wii. My cousins are cute.

Man I'm Hot Like the Sun Like the Middle of the Summer

I love living with my cousin Sophie. She is one of my best friends who I can go to with any problem. She should be getting home from work soon which means: 
giggles, raves (in her room with the light up toys aunt Heather gave us at our little cousins birthday party), beautiful singing (HA!), making appointments for her (let me know if you need a free wash and blow dry/ trim and I'll schedule you with her. She's a natural and has already cut my impossible hair), reminiscing, ugly pictures, photo booth, snuggling, hating boys, funny youtubes, an occasional break for Kate's homework, then REPEAT! Drive faster Soph so we can party.....MIMS

Baby Girl

Before Steve and Dayna moved I got to spend the day watching Jaynie. I haven't had time to post the pictures so here they are a few weeks late.

Playin in the gym on the roller things

I asked my mom what the caption should be and she said: "don't you just want to eat me?" HAHAHA

Jaynie and grandma

A garden stroll

My attempt to be artistic. Instead of the parents kissing with the baby in the background it's the baby in the back with the flowers in front haha


I love this one. She is darling!

So small!

Oh hey girl!

I can't get enough of this little girl

The cutest girl

She should model

Max says she looks like a baby ghost

She resembles my childhood pictures in this one. 

Her little teeth kill me

Max is looking at these with me and he just said: "aww she's so cuuuute!" 

get it girl

Live in Thanksgiving Daily

Lately I have been feeling sorry for myself. I let my anxiety get the best of me and end up tearing myself apart. It's silly really because I have been blessed with so many wonderful things. I decided I need to be more grateful. Here are some things I am thankful for:

An eternal family that loves me and takes care of me

Loving grandparents on both sides of the family.

Parents who love each other, their children and the Lord. 

The gospel in my life and a father who holds and honors the priesthood

My "brother" Javier who has been with us for 10 years and his new wife Susannah

My brother Steve and sister-in-law Dayna who are such examples to me. They also are pretty fun to have around if you can't tell from the picture.

My sister Lauren who gets my weird humor and is always there for me. (I'm thankful for Mike too but he's not in this picture)

my cute little Max

Josephine my sassy little girl
My adorable niece who I miss SO MUCH!

A friend I can't remember living without. Love you baby friend!

Friends who love me no matter what. (even if I quit on them beginning of our biggest year)

Friendships that have built me up and helped me become stronger

Extended family (can't fit everyone in one picture so I chose this one)

My best friend in the entire world who puts the Lord first. I could go on and on about the blessings I receive from this boy, so I will hold back haha.

I have been given so many wonderful things. This is only a small portion of the things I have been blessed with. I could go into so much detail about everything I have shared. Where much is given, much is required. I have a lot of work to do.
