I can't believe i'm sharing this

So.. back in the day, I hung out with two of the funniest girls i know!! Karissa (Roo)and i were roommates and Cindy (La) was the girl next door. We became the best of friends fast. We did the craziest funnest things ever. One night, we decided to make a music video to the song Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. Which led to SEVERAL more music videos. Here is probably my very favorite one. "I Won't Say I'm In Love" from the movie Hercules. I hope you enjoy it!

Gosh, the dumb things we do.. This video is just the tip of iceberg!! Roo, La.. sorry if you hate me for this cuz i know it is embarrassing BUT it's something that needs to be shared!!

So today my dear sweet cousin Daniel married to the most adorable girl! It has been a very fun day! In a few days i will post pictures from this exciting event, but right now i want to write about what happened after the wedding reception.

I followed Brady and my dad back to Springville (where Brady lives). I was able to get Hyrum ready for bed and read him a few books. My dad went to Del Taco for a late night snack.

When the boys were in bed and my dad returned we sat around the table eating tacos and burritos. We were discussing the most mundane things. Whether Del Taco was better than Taco Bell.. how many kids should Brady and Wendy have..what we should do tomorrow. It was such normal everyday thing and i loved every moment of it!

I sat back and listen to Brady try to prove some random point to Wendy as my dad asked if my mom was hungry. I was overwhelmed with such gratitude for this day! All of it, the chance i had to be in the temple and witness the sacredness of an eternal marriage. I talked and more importantly laughed with my cousins that i haven't seen in month, and as the day ended i was sitting around the table laughing with members of my family! What a great day.

There are times(several) in my life where i have complained, where i wondered what my purpose is, what is the point of this trial and that opposition, is it really worth it? Tonight those questions were answered, those complaints defeated. Today, is what it is all about, today, it was worth it! The heartache, the strife, the everyday battles we constantly fight are worth every second, every tear because at the end of the day, we are together, we are ALL family and that is what we are striving for.

So.. today.. today I'm grateful!

Shopping-Hair Appointment-Chocolate

My sister sent me this email... i thought it was so funny!

I was walking down the street when I was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless woman who asked me for a couple of dollars for dinner.

I took out my wallet, got out ten dollars and asked, 'If I give you this money, will you buy chocolate with it instead of dinner?'

'No, I had to stop eating chocolate years ago', the homeless woman told me.

'Will you use it to go shopping instead of buying food?' I asked.

'No, I don't waste time shopping,' the homeless woman said. 'I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive.'

'Will you spend this on a beauty salon instead of food?' I asked.

'Are you NUTS!' replied the homeless woman. I haven't had my hair done in 20 years!'

'Well, I said, 'I'm not going to give you the money. Instead, I'm going to take you out for dinner with my husband and me tonight.'

The homeless Woman was shocked. 'Won't your husband be furious with you for doing that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting.'

I said, 'That's okay. It's important for him to see what a woman looks like after she has given up shopping, hair appointments, and chocolate.'

Office Moment of the Day

I freaking love The Office! This is one of my moments!

I love how Jim looks at the camera and laughs!! Gosh! Have i mentioned i LOVE the office??
If this didn't make your day.. you need to lighten up and laugh!

Truly the simple things

For the most part, i am a simple person, therefore, I'm easily amused. One of my favorite songs is 'Hey There Delilah' By Plain White T's. If you've never here it, here's the video. I love it!

The story behind this is killer too!

If you have heard it, my sister and brother in law sent this to me... I almost died from laughing. Is it really that funny? Well, it's from Sesame street and again, I'm a simple person! So yes! Yes it is!
