So I am kinda doing something crazy.. I'm applying for The Mormon Bachelor!

I think it will be a fun experience and help me meet people outside of my regular circle.
They are filming the next season in Provo starting in (Aug?).
Anyways I would like to have a new head shot and the magic of a really great photographer to help me look like a good candidate :)

Please let me know if you or a friend would be willing to help me out!

Love you all!

Blessings in Disguise

So car crashes suck and are a really bad headache, but when its all said and done...
Its really nice to cross this off my 'wish' list! I've wanted a crossover for a while now and I LOVE the Honda CRV.

This is my new baby! (Not this exact one, it's just a picture of the same year/make/model from Google Images.)

2011 is starting to look up.. I look back at old "Life Plan's" that I've drawn up, and am amazed to see how many of my goals I have been able to accomplish. It is by God's good graces that I live the wonderful life that I do, and I just have to remind myself that this really is His plan. It is up to me to align my goals with His, and to remember that by doing this I'll become the person that He wants me to be.

Lots more on the schedule for this year 2011---
Run at least a 10K.
Possibly another pageant- if I haven't miraculously ended up with a man by then.
Continue with dance classes at Center Stage.
Graduate from BYUI with a BSN in December.
Finally apply for Air Force Reserve.
Go to Tennessee, Alaska, and go on another dive trip somewhere.
Pay off everything but my car and student loans by the end of the year.
Do Baptisms at least once a month.
Have a successful Volunteer Week and officially form my foundation.

And 2012?---
AF Training
Finish Exercise Science degree from BYU
Go to Italy with mom
..that's all so far.

3rd Annual Volunteer Week News Article

Filling My Time

First experience with Royal Icing, its harder to use than I thought! They are faceless because I ran out of energy :)

My hutch! And some of my glass collection. This has been doubled, maybe tripled by my visits to DI and Hobby Lobby!

I made some really cute Oreo suckers for my work family :)
(Stick the 'Skinny Sticks' into the Oreo, paint oreo's with melted white chocolate and place on wax paper. Sprinkle with sprinkles, drizzle with melted milk chocolate, top with nuts or whatever you like and then place in little plastic bags and use a cute ribbon. So easy!)

This is where I found the idea.. (How Does She... blog is on my blog list, check it out!)

My mom got this frame for $10 at Home Depot because the glass was cracked, its a huge, beautiful frame! (46x24)

I painted it a brilliant blue color (phone pictures don't do it justice!) and will 'antique' it when its dried. This is going to be a chalkboard magnet board so I just bought some magnet board for less than $10 (Home Depot) and painted it with chalkboard paint. I made some really cute magnets with old bottle caps too! I'll post a finished product :)

Gardner Village is like my crack cocaine..

My most recent relapse included the purchase of this GORGEOUS antique hutch for my future house. I wish you could see the details up close but my camera died and all I had was my moms phone camera..
I think I could furnish a small house, or, as my mom hinted ever so subtly, a StOrAgE UnIt.

These pictures don't even truly capture the color of it.

I fall in love quite often when I walk through those stores.

Funny thing about climb one just to find the base of the next one.

Sooo.. I got accepted into BYU-I's RN to BSN program and start in January.

Community Nursing

Semester 2- Old Testament 2
The American Epidemic
Art/Propaganda in 20th Century
Nursing Research
Vertical Escrow Credits (No idea what that means)
Advanced Med Surg

Semester 3- Family Foundations
The Heroic Journey
Natural Disasters
Foundations Capstone
Physical Assessment
Nursing Leadership

Then I can finally be an Air Force Nurse!!

{She packed up her potential, and all she had learned, grabbed a cute pair of shoes, and headed out to change a few things.}

I found several of these cards by Leigh Standley in some little shop a while back and have been in love with her art ever since. They decorate my room and I think I may be one of her best customers--

You'll be in love too when you read all of these :D
Order them from Curly Girl Design here.
