It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

I love Christmas.

3 Days

I have such a busy next couple days ahead of me.
Here's how it goes:

See Blake

See Blake

Finish packing


I usually start my packing at least a few days
before I leave for home.
Mainly because I am just way too excited.
But this time, its because I have no absolutely no time on Monday
and barely any time on Tuesday.
And today is already a little crazy.
I could not be more ready for this time to relax and take a break.
And I will need it most after Monday and Tuesday.
I was crazy and asked one of my boss' if I could work
3 shifts within 2 days.
And, he gave it to me.
Bring on Monday and Tuesday!!

I am stoked to see my family and friends!!
I have missed them so much
(even though my family just recently visited).
California, Family, Friends....I'll see you soon!!


Just Sayin'.....

More Findings on Pinterest....

And My Favorite...

seven...almost six

7 days
(almost 6)
until I come home!!
I can't wait to FLY home to California.
Instead of a 10 hour car drive....
I get to take a 2 hour flight home.
I am so excited to see my family and friends.
A break and quality time with family is needed.

California....see you soon!! <3

Blast From The Past

Alright, more like
"Blast from the not-so-long-ago past"
I just got caught up with looking at my photos...
And I ran by these...

{Hawaii Choir Tour- Laie Temple- 2007}
{Young Men and Young Women trip to the temple- 2006?}
{Thanksgiving- 2007?}

{Prom- 2007}
{Family- 2007}


I walked out of class today and the first thing I saw was this....
Utah is such a beautiful place.
I feel lucky to live here
(for this short time).
Just look at that beautiful sunset.

Growing and Growing

Remember when my hair was this length?
Well, look at it now.

Its longer than it looks.
All that biotin is finally catching up to my hair.
So excited!!
After 3 long years of short hair...
I am finally ready for longer hair again.
I want to be able to put it up without it looking funny,
and I want to curl my hair again!
I miss that.

My hair should be at the length it was before I cut it,
in about 6 months.
This makes me happy :)


Crock Pot Meals

About once a week I make dinner for both Blake and I.
It is nice to be able to learn new recipes,
and be able to cook for someone other than myself.
Pinterest has these awesome crockpot recipes.

(Seriously, Pinterest is THE BEST!!)

I have been making many chicken crockpot meals.
I've done chicken with salsa, and we made them in to tacos.
Then I made a like creamy chicken that we put on top of rice.
And Ive done a BBQ chicken with broccoli, carrots, and pineapple.
Last week I made a delicious taco tortilla soup!!
Even though pizza isn't a crock pot meal....I still made it.
Tonight...BBQ chicken, with potatoes, veggies, and rolls.

I am really enjoying making all of these meals for us.
Blake always says he loves it....I hope its true.

I'm starving and can't wait for tonights meal to be ready.
I'll post a picture later.


Is It Christmas Yet?

I am so excited for Christmas this year.
I know that Thanksgiving isn't even here yet.
(And don't get me wrong...I am excited for Thanksgiving also.)
But, Christmas....ahhhhh!!
I can't even put in to words how excited I am.
I am already listening to Christmas music.
And...I started to before Halloween.
GO ahead, call me crazy!!

Dana bought the new Michael Buble,
She&Him, and Justin Bieber Christmas albums.
Oh. My. Goodness. They are all so good!!
I only listen to Christmas music now.
(Unless I am working.)


(16 days until I come home for Thanksgiving!!)
