Turn of events...

I realize I am officially the world’s worst blogger, but for some reason I was randomly reminded today that I actually have a blog and decided that I should write. 
Quick update on my life since the last time I wrote.  In June my family went to Hawaii, and had a blast. I was offered a job at Dixie State College in July and decided I should probably move to St. George if I was going to actually work there.

But before the move I went to Lake Powell with my family. We had a blast and not to mention while we were there Luke proposed. Luckily the diamond ring was fake because I lost it in the bottom of the lake. Whoops! But we are getting married on October 20, 2012 and that day could not come any sooner I swear.

So I am living in St. George now, planning this wedding. I have a cute little apartment that Luke and I will live in after we get married. Life is good. And can I just say I love getting to see Luke every day. I do not know for the life of me why we ever did long distance dating. Somehow we have survived though.

But I don’t like my blog being all about me. Here are some things I have learned as of late:

· Just elope; it’s so much easier than planning a wedding.

· With increased vision comes increased motivation.

· There are some really dumb people that go to college.

· If you wash your car, it’s almost a guarantee that it will rain.

· Buying a 3.5 pound bag of Swedish fish at Costco, is definitely a bad idea!

· The humor section on Pinterest can entertain you for hours.

· I am kind of a big deal.

I know I am full of wisdom and have learned so much in the past 8 months…. OK so maybe these things aren’t necessarily raising my IQ but they have been life changing life lessons. I now will know better in the future. 
(and I hope to put up pictures soon.)

Fashion Fades, Only Style Remains

Three months have passed since my last post and in a way it blows my mind that so much time has passed. But my life in a nut shell: I am currently substitute teaching and also working for my older sister doing her advertising and such for her business, It's a Piece of Cake! I'm loving both jobs and loving getting to spend lots of time with the fam here in Vegas.

A cake my sister just made! She is amazing!

 And did I mention I've been playing a lot. Probably a bit too much... Whoops. You only live once right?

Christmas, New Year's,and other pointless holidays, like Groundhog's Day, have come and gone, and they all were great. And Scott is finally home. It has been nice having him around. My parents don't worry about me as much anymore. It really is fantastic.... And that is the not so exciting update on my life.

At the dunes having a good time!
As for things that have been on my mind as of the last three months, well lots, but the thing on my mind today that deems itself to be blog worthy is a quote that I heard a while back by Oscar Wilde. It came to mind today as I observed all the different styles of clothing girls were wearing at church. He said, "Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months!

Our little family welcoming Scott home from Russia at the airport!
That just makes me laugh cause it is so true. Especially nowadays since fashion trends are just repeating what my parents wore.... Crazy. I don't know what's cool these days nor do I try to keep up, but I do enjoy a good laugh from the plethora of styles expressed by people. You never know what people might be wearing. It's great! I guess how we dress is a way of expression, but if it were up to me.... No one would wear shoes and we would dress for comfort.... But hey that's just me. Just a bit of the random on my mind today.

Stay classy my friends!
