A Letter to Thursday.

Dear Brain,
Please stop overthinking and overanalyzing EVERYTHING. For once, just sit back and enjoy what's going on around you. It's okay to just step back, breathe and smile about it. Really, it is. There's no need to think of every little detail and situation and get yourself worked up about it. Really, there isn't. Do you really want the wrinkles to start??? Yeah, I didn't think so!!
So let's just breathe and smile and call it good, ok?

Front Row Seats.

Lately, I've been thinking of how blessed I am to have the greatest nephews & niece! I really truly am lucky. I love hangin' out with them and I'm grateful that they see me as an "older sister" than an "aunt". My relationship with my aunts are okay, nothing great or grand but I definitely refer to them as "Auntie K_____" or "Auntie L______". I wouldn't dream of just calling them by their first names. Then again, I am closer in age to my nephews than my aunts who are old enough to be my grandparents.
Anywhoo....I've been thinking lately of how blessed I am to have a front row seat to their lives. I mean, they're so awesome and amazing. I get to be a witness to all of that! I love it!
Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever have my own children someday. I mean, I would LOVE to, of course. But if it doesn't happen for some reason, I feel like I've already been blessed. I remember each of them when they were born. I remember their milestones. I remember holding them, their sweet baby aromas, singing to them and sometimes rocking them to sleep. I just can't believe how fast they're growing up. I wish they could just stay so little. My oldest nephew is currently in Fiji on an LDS mission. My 2nd nephew is now 6'3" and such a man, my 3rd nephew is so musically talented that I love hearing him play the guitar and my dear sweet niece is blossoming into a beautiful young girl. Just yesterday she was wondering why I wear make-up because "you're already beautiful" is what she told me.
So if I never have children in this lifetime, I'd be okay with that. I feel like I've already had heaven's choicest angels bless my life. My cup runneth over... ♥

Tuesday....with soooooooo many more days to go!

I have a lot on my mind. A LOT. Maybe I need to go think at the beach.... All I know is that when I woke up this morning I had the strongest desire for a Utah road trip. CRAZY, I know. I miss Utah. I miss my cousins and really want to hang with them. I miss my Utah friends and want to see all of them. Why this longing for Utah??? Gah, I have no idea! I mean I was just there in June and July. Hmm.....???
I think I just need change. I need a BIG change. Just something because life is feeling really, REALLY stagnant. I hate that feeling. I need something to change.... Maybe I need a haircut? I'm thinking of going really short (shoulder length) so I can start straightening it more...but if it's short and I do curly, then it gets WAAAAAAY too short.
Or maybe I'm just slightly confused. I think that's what I am. I want to talk to a certain person, in person, but can't for at least another week. I want to see this person but wonder if things will be awkwardly different since the last time we saw each other. I hope not, I'd really be bummed if things were drastically different between us. Sighhhhhhhhhhh...........

Aaaaaand today is Monday.

I feel so terrible that I hardly blog. I mean, I like to cuts down on the phone calls, text messages and emails that I have to return. It's great......

And one day, soon enough, I'll be able to post a structured post...but for now, it's the quickie/randomoniums.....

-Had a great weekend. Loved Friday night...tons of fun with friends.

-I have the best sister in the world, I feel so blessed!!

-I miss my nephew Elder Lomu so much. I can't wait for him to come home!!

-I REALLY want the next 2 weeks to FLY by!!

-My 17 year old niece (my cousin's daughter) just got her Senior pictures back.... I can't believe she's so grown up!! Tears started to well up in my eyes! Awww Kat!

-The weather is AMAZING today, quite hot...but loving it!

-I MIGHT be going to Philadelphia in a month. I would be ECSTATIC!!!! I miss the east coast!! Plus my sister and I would get to hang in Jersey while we're out there. OH I WOULD LOVE IT SO MUCH!!! I miss New Jersey & my mission!!! It's also Autumn, which means the trees would all be turning to reds & yellows!! AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed!!

-Other than that, my test that I took about a week ago... I did GREAT and now it's just the waiting game. UGH! Good luck to me! :)

-I feel so scattered.......... Did I mention how I really wish the next 2 weeks would fly by already??? Please, pretty pretty please....

Life is good, God is great!

Glitter in the Air....

"Have you ever fed a lover with just your hands?
Close your eyes and trust it, just trust it.
Have you ever thrown a fist full of glitter in the air?"
"Have you ever wished for an endless night?
Lassoed the moon and the stars and pulled that rope tight.
Have you ever held your breath and asked yourself
Will it ever get better than tonight?"

Gosh, I L♥VE that song by Pink!! It makes me miss being in love, and everything that leads up to it.... the flirting, the anticipation, the first kiss..... I just miss it all ♥♥

I feel like I haven't blogged lately, so here we go..........
Font size
*I like being 30. It's not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I feel like a full fledged adult now...well, sorta. So I guess I feel like a half-fledged adult. Hopefully that changes soon!

*I got to spend the morning in Coronado....I LOVE LOVE LOVE that place!! It's like a different world whenever I go there. I would LOOOOOOOOVE to live there someday. There's just something so magical about it.

*Ate brunch at the beach and it was stupendous! Having the waves crash right in front of me, the cool salty air blowing in my hair as I watched dolphins jump in the beautiful blue ocean was just amazing. There were HOT surfers walking with their surfboards and a lovely lil old couple walking hand in was sweet to see. I love the beach. I feel so tremendously blessed to live near the ocean.

*Let's see...what else? I'm done with Camp. I think I'm merely an acquaintance at church, nothing more. He's pretty to look at, but really that's it. There's more fish in the sea, but I think I'm done fishing for now. The good ol' fishing pole is going away for a season.
*Can I just say, I love my YSA ward?! I really do, I love my friends there. I love the silence of Sacrament meeting. I love going to Institute. I love the McKenzies (who run the Institute). I love the activities and being so active. I love it all. One thing that would make it better is if Elder Lomu was already back from his mish so we could go to these activities together. I love going with Bubba, but it'd be cooler to have him here too.
*Happy ALOHA Friday!

"Every dark cloud has it's silver lining"
True, very very true! :)
Last night was waaaaaaay fun and as always, I LOOOOOOOVE going to church! :)
I love finding the "tender mercies" that still come amidst the craziness!

So let's see...I was awakened EARLY this morning, after a restless night, to find out my car was towed. Not really the most ideal way to wake up to a 3 day holiday weekend, that is for damn sure!!!
Won't be seeing my car until Tuesday, yep, TUESDAY!!! 4 days of storage fees at the tow yard. SHOOT ME IN MY HEAD!!!
I won't even go into the details of the additional costs it'll take to get it out of storage.
I don't know if I want to scream or cry...or both?!
Hmm...let's see, what else? Due to trying to get my car back today, I had to miss the Padres v. Rockies [baseball] game with my family. I LOOOOOOOOVE ANY chance I get to see the Padres play!! :(
Oh, and I had to ask my Dad (who is apparently upset with me for speaking my mind this week) for A LOT of money this morning. Let's just say I had a nice hardy serving of Humble pie for breakfast & lunch and maybe even dinner.....for the rest of my life!
In the midst of trying to de-stress, I thought I'd pull out my ol' violin that I haven't played in about 6-8 years. The G-string busted while I tried to tune it and the bow hairs are completely shot.
And the cherry on top of AAAALLLLLLLLLLL of this.... I texted Camp hours ago and haven't heard back from him. Maybe the text was TOO forward? Maybe I just shot myself in the foot? Maybe this is just going along with my "FML" day? Who the hell knows...
All I know is that I will FOREVER HATE Labor Day weekend!!!!
((For those of you who don't know what "FML" is: "F*** My Life".))
