Share a vivid dream....

I had this dream when I was in kindergarten (over 20 years ago) and I remember it like it was yesterday.
The dream started out looking at my grandparents house from the front yard. And in the center of the grass there was a hill that wasn't normally there. Come to find out I was buried in the front yard and the hill was from me. I had been outside with my grandma and an ear-wig crawled in my ear and killed me. (I thought that is what would happen if an ear-wig crawled inside your ear). 🐛
That is all I remember about the dream but that is enough to have made me terrified of ear-wigs since then. They are just so gross and creepy looking..RIGHT?!!!

Staying strong in hard times....

This week has been very challenging for me.

I have had to make some tough decisions. I have learned that I can stand up for myself and that I need to stand up for myself. I have always had a hard time standing up for myself, I have always felt like I can't do anything on my own and that I need the help from other people. Although for the past few weeks I have realized that I need to be able to be on my own and not feel like I can't do anything without the help of other people. I have always been a people pleaser and I know that I need to do what is best for me. I always feel like I have to put my best face forward and try to hide my real feelings from the world. But you can only take so much before it becomes too draining on your soul and mental state. I have had to do a lot of soul searching and I feel like I have grown. Sometimes what we think is the best thing for us turns out to be a stepping stone in becoming the best person you can be. I do know that with whatever situati…

30 day photo challenge...Week 4

Once again I am super late on getting this post out. This is the last week for my photo challenge, I have had so much fun doing this!


Saturday July 22nd

😃 Fireworks:
I love the 4th of July! And in Utah we also get to celebrate the 24th of July. Which is when Utah became a state. So we get more days to celebrate and watch fireworks.


Sunday July 23rd

😇 Classy:
As I get older I have found that I like dressing up a lot more than I did when I was younger. I really enjoy putting on a nice outfit, shoes, do my hair and make-up nice. It's fun to look pretty!



Monday July 24th

😉 Finger nails:
I like painting my finger nails. I used to always get manicures and the fake acrylic nails which were super fun to have. I tried having them again a few months ago and I felt like I was crippled lol. I couldn't do anything, so I've decided to just paint them myself or if I feel like I want them again I will just do shellac. My favorite brand of polish that I have found is Sally Hansen it lasts …

Book review...The Gifts of Imperfection

I just got done reading the Book "The Gifts of Imperfection" by Brene Brown. While it was a good book it was hard for me to get into it. It's a self help book with really good information and quotes. One quote that really stuck out to me was, The Thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself. -Anna Quindlen I don't know why I had such a hard time reading it. Usually I enjoy books like this but for some reason I just didn't this time. But you should check it out for yourself and see what you think.

Things I do to cheer myself up when I'm feeling down

Over the years I have had to find ways to cheer myself up if I'm ever feeling low. As I think we all have had to do. Here is a list of some of my favorite things to do.

♬ I will usually listen to music. Listening to the right songs can put you in such a better mood and even bring back a whole bunch of memories. I love music and always have it on.

♣♤ Another thing I like to do that will always cheer me up is playing games. I love to play all kinds of games. Card games, board games, anything really.

☏ If I'm ever down I can always call my mom and talk to her she always knows what to say to put me in a good mood and make me feel better. Or I can text my dad and talk to him. I also have several cousins and friends that I can call or text to help brighten up my day. I am so grateful to have them in my life and that I have such a good relationship with all of them.

✄🎨 I love to do crafts and being able to do a craft and use your creativity and imagination is so soothing and can mak…

My first attempt at yoga

I tried yoga for the first time earlier this month and I really enjoyed it!  
 I just found a you-tube video and followed along with it. I did it at the end of the day right before bed and felt so relaxed after wards. The only thing I don't know about is if it will help with weight loss or if it's just meant to be more for relaxation, meditation and to help with flexibility? I really liked it though because I feel like it worked some muscles that sometimes get missed with other workouts. I also liked that a lot of the stretches reminded me of my dance days so it felt comfortable to do them again. Don't get me wrong I was sore the next day, but it was a good sore for sure. I know for me sometimes I get stuck in a rutt with my fitness routine, so I enjoy doing new workouts. 
What are some of your favorite workouts?

↦First Photo on Phone:
This picture was taken while David and I were still dating. I love going to the Fair I think it is so fun to see all the animals, booths and fun things people have to show there. Plus it's a great way to kick off the Fall season (and I love Fall).

↣Mug:
David has had this cup forever and I love it! I have always been a big Jazz fan. I remember going to games with my dad when I was younger and I still enjoy going to games now. I have really liked that the Jazz have gone back to using a similar logo to this on their jerseys again.
