god gave me you

I have always been the biggest believer that anyone that comes into your life is to teach you something.  No one is put into your life just because. Sometimes someone comes into your life, and its never the same again. they make you unbelievably happy and you miss them the second they leave. they have that smile that you cant get enough of. everytime they hold your hand, your heart does a backflip. you get a hug goodbye and you don't want to let go. He calls you beautiful and you think man, how did i get so lucky??? No one has ever called me that before.  God gave me you Austin:)

im an adult?

so it was my birthday on december the 7th.  it was quite the glorious day! my friend bought me lunch at good! then after practice i went home and showered really quick, and i went to olive garden for the first time with my sister and mother! it say the least..delicious! then i got to go to the byu basketball game with my dad and brothers. it was such a fun game to watch!  then i got to open my presents which consisted of a new coat and gloves-exactly what i wanted:) when i was pulling up in my driveway...i see laurie and stacie chalking my driveway and then scrambling when they saw that i was coming haha. so i was not allowed to look at my driveway until they said so haha. then i looked on my doorstep..and kneaders cookies had been left on my porch by robby and carson! completly made my day:) then drew put streamers and balloons on my doorstep haha. that was funny because i saw him doing it haha. so then i ventured down to my room..and laurie had toilet papered my room! and left presents in my room. it was the best:) i dont have any pictures because i dont have a camera unfortunatly..but it was a great birthday:) i am so grateful for the amazing friends and family that i have in my life, and for everyone that made my birthday a great day:)

considering how many times i've posted in the last month....i am obviously very busy right now. between college applications, personal progress that i am trying to finish before my birthday, basketball craziness, family stuff, and just school in general? i barely have time to breathe! i haven't even posted about sadies yet! so i guess i will  do that now:)
our group was euber random but that made it super fun. we first picked up our dates and headed over to kendras dads office just like last year, and we decorated our capes. they were so occupied by all the toys in the room that we spent wayyy too much time their but we were having so much fun just playing with toys! so  then we dropped them off and we got dressed and dinner ready, and then picked them back up for pictures. we had a blast taking these pictures!
mandy and zach-aquaman!
kendra and tanner-batman 
stacie and dakota-captain america

after we took pictures up dry canyon we went to have homemade cafe rio at the office again. it was super delicious! we decided to have a candlelight dinner with tea lights that we found in the kitchen and we decorated it all tacky.  it was pretty much the best. after we had our way chill dinner and ate a ton of spicy green ranch, we headed over to the mall to do a scavenger hunt. after that we headed over to the dance! it was way fun until some stupid kids decided to throw a glowstick at the dj when he kept telling us to stop moshing...sometimes i wonder what kids are thinking. after that half the dance left, so it was pretty lame after that but we stayed until the end.  

after the dance we went to the office again and had ice cream sundaes for dessert and just hung out for awhile.  

the boys
pretty sure we were the coolest..just sayin
parker and i
chelsea and gary-robin

lisa and devin-spiderman

parker and i - superman
hannah and mckay-green lantern

this is probably my favorite picture ever haha. i dont know what stacie was doing but i sure do look horrified 

then we had the long dreaded doorstep scene. pretty sure I had the most awkward car door scene..haha.  it was actually pretty funny. all in was a great date. not sure how it was going to go, but in the end it worked out.  thanks for putting up with me parker! 
p.s. yes...i am wearing gold leggings. and yes i bought them at 9 on saturday right before our day date.

im a fourth through my senior year....

i am a fourth through my senior year...i seriously started crying today thinking about it. it is going so fast! but good news..the most stressful week of life is..over! goodness gracious. i really wish i was smart. school would be so much easier! i study for tests for hours, and i still get bad grades. what is wrong with me? it is one of the most frustrating things in the world.  i would get into any college i wanted, and i wouldnt even have to try! ugh anyways. this week included 2 days of work, open gyms, end of term, and sadies madness. plus all of the other little things on the side. im happy to say its over though. now i actually should get started on scholorships stuff. i need to apply to colleges this is a longer process than i thought.
so i've decided i reallllyyy need a camera.  it is driving me crazy not having one!  i usually take so many pictures and it is killing me not having any of my senior year! man. life is just crazy right now.  i am still not sure if im trying out for the basketball team. i am not sure i want to put myelf through what i went through, again this year.  i really want to play, but i just dont know. this could seriously change my senior year. i was also thinking of doing lacrosse....i think it would be super fun. i am just not sure! tryouts are in a week...and im still on the fence....
i have been writing this narrative for my college writing class and its gotten me thinking about my life. what have i done with my life?? am i just letting it slip past me?? levi lost his first tooth the other feels like a few months ago we moved here and he was year old. in a year..i might not be living at home, and not seeing my family every day. my brothers will be in high school before i know it, and ill be married. am i really taking every moment and doing something good with it? or am i being lazy and just wasting away these precious last months with my family. 
life is just...a huge mystery for me right now. there are so many things i do with my life, and i just dont know what i want to do.

if we were dating??

if we were dating?? that would have been super romantic. but we are not. and thats ok. because right now? i dont need to be dating anyone.  this is high school people. YOU DONT NEED A BOYFRIEND! i know its fun, but you dont need that right now. at least my little crush has his priorities straight, and keeps mine straight too. even if nothing comes of it later? i can honestly say he has made me a better person for making me keep my distance.
