Summer :)

Summer is almost over?! Only 2 weeks left? WHAT? where the heck did it go?? Summer always goes wayyyy too fast! This summer has been SO great though. I have done so much and had so many good times! I worked at the Timp Freeze almost everyday. And anytime I wasn't working, Jalen and I were hanging out. Going crawdad fishing, to seven peaks, shopping, looking for an apartment, going on spontaneous road trips, doing spontaneous things, living by YOLO, etc. The list goes on and on. I also got to see my best friends Caitlin and Tj. And I just recently went to Moab with my family and the Hansens. And cant forget, Rach got married!! So many good times, memories, and laughs will remind me of the summer of 2012. Now it is almost time to move on with my life, and begin another amazing adventure!! COLLEGE. and living on my own. I move out on the 20th. That is about 1 week. I can't believe it. Growing up is a weird feeling. I haven't decided how I feel about it yet. When I do, I will update you. :)


The time finally came. I graduated!! Never thought the day would come. It has been almost 3 months and it still hasn't hit me! It is just too crazy! It came too fast!! But here are some pictures from graduation!

I am really excited to go to college. It has been really stressful, but I know it will be so much fun. High school was a lot of fun, but I am ready to move on and see where else life takes me!

Solar Eclipse

So on Sunday there was a solar eclipse. It was sooo cool. Me, Todd, Tate, Jake, and Kati were going to drive down to Cedar City to see it because apparently thats where you could see it the best, but we decided not to. So we drove to a cemetary in Provo that was kinda on top of a mountain. It was a pretty sweet view. It was really fun. Such a bummer though that right when the sun was the most covered, the clouds went right over it.... so we couldn't see much. It was still cool though! fun group of kids.

Little Miracles Dance!

This past Saturday was the Little Miracles dance at the school! It was a charity dance, and to get into the dance you had to go and buy three things to donate to a childrens hospital. It was such a cool idea. I went with a guy named Todd Ogilvie who is in my ward:) It was a ton of fun! For the day date, we had a huge paint fight. Then we jumped in the lake, went to the hot pots, had pizza, went to the dance for about 30 minutes, then went into the mountains and had a fire! It was just a really good time. And it couldn't have been more perfect of a date. Good way to end senior year :)

Almost Done!

This is basically my last week of high school. EVER. I have 3 more days left until I check out as a senior. Words cannot describe how excited I am for next wednesday, May 30th, the day I graduate, to come. High school has had it's ups and downs. I have been through a lot, especially this past year. But those things have only made me stronger and a better person. I am so excited to see what the future has in store for me. I am ready to move on with my life and see what else there is in the world.

Golf season is here!

In Utah, girls golf is in the spring. Which is now! We started practices in the rec center before school like 3 weeks ago and then this week we actually went out and played a few holes. Then yesterday we had our first tournament against the other 5 schools in our region. It was so fun! We left the school on a bus at 9 in the morning because the tournament started at 11 in Salt Lake at a course called Glendale Golf Course. It was a pretty easy course. Not what I am used to playing. It was flat. haha! But super fun :) I ended up playing the best round of 18 holes I have ever played in my life. I took 2nd overall individually with an 82. The girl who beat me shot a 75. I am so excited to be playing golf again. I am really enjoying it and I hope it is a good season! :)

BYU Idaho

So about 3 weeks ago, actually Friday February 17th was probably the hardest day for me. My friend Shaylee Wilcox who goes to BYU texted me and asked if I got accepted to BYU. I didn't even know they were sending out their acceptances yet! So I hurried and got on the computer to check. When I saw the word DECLINED on that screen I broke down. It still makes me cry just thinking about it. I knew that it would be hard for me to get in, but I prayed and prayed that I could somehow get in. Ever since my first year at EFY where I met Caitlin and we decided we were going to go to BYU together and room together and everything, it was always a dream of mine. But that won't be happening. Not at first at least. But the hardest part of it was just seeing it on the screen, and making it official. It is hard when something in life goes differently than what you imagined and you kind of have to redirect your path!

That is what I am having to do! I feel good about my decision to go to BYU Idaho. I had the choice between going to Idaho or just going to UVU in Orem and living in BYU housing. But I know I am meant to go to Idaho. Things are just kind of playing out for me to go there. I am going to room with my friend Gracie from California. I think it will be such a good experience. And I know a lot of kids from my old stake in California that are going there. I know that I will have a good time and get a good education.

I do not know the reason why I didn't get into BYU, however I do know now that it just wasn't meant to be. Luckily, Rachel Potter was at my house when I found out the sad news and she told me exactly what i needed to hear. She told met that there is a reason I didn't get in and no matter what, everything is going to be okay. I don't know if I will know immediately the reason why I need to go up to Idaho, but in time I will know. I am excited for the new experience and to finally get out of high school.

So remember... if things don't go the way you planned, obviously there is a reason. Everything happens for a reason. Heavenly Father has a set plan for us and we just need to have faith and go with whatever happens :)
