"We women have a lot to learn about
simplifying our lives.
We have to decide what is important
and then move along
at a pace that is comfortable
for us.
We have to develop the maturity
to stop trying to prove something.
We have to learn to be content
with what we are."

what's up what's up what's up.

hello. california is beaaaautiful. just thought I would state that fact for you all.

tomorrow i have a plan to go to the gym three times. i have an issue. oh well.
i move back in with my family next week... finally and oh it feels so good.
i love good hearted people. scratch that... i love all people. 
i've saving my dollars. big accomplishment let me tell you. this next pay check is going straight in the bank and not being touched... that is called dedication my friends.
i purchased my first anthropologie dress this past week (this is before I decided this whole saving deal) and i felt like a class act on sunday.
i now own lipstick. 19 going on 30?
i speak on the phone to niff daily... literally. that's what happens when we are both home and bored.
passion pit pandora station gets me through my day at work.
i'm beginning to think that after my cleanse that i did last week that my body is not loving that i like to eat meat....suck.

yep that's me. i've been slacking. what's new though? haha i always say i'm going to update this but then I fail... oh well always room for improvement yes? ok. thanks.

so same ol' stuff here. i work all the time (which is nice because i need that paper, haha) and i hang out with my mom and brother a lot. yes, that may make me sound anti social. but fear not! i do hang out with people other than my family....but lately it's been fun to catch up with family. it's been a long while. but they'll get used to me here because i'll be here for a little while!

yes. chase is my brother. one of the twins.

things i've learned lately:
-everything works out...even when it seems like it won't.
-the printer at work hates me.
-prayer works. i promise.

oh and something random I found about moms:


now a little bit about today for me.
let's just say today i've been in a grateful mood that i wish would stick around everyday.
and i've been really grateful for the role the gospel plays in my life, I honestly do not know where I would be without the knowledge i have. i'm oh so grateful. so with that I decided to write down some goals. sure it isn't the new year or anything but I need goals!!
so here we go:

1. Exercise 30-60 minutes a day.
2. Eat healthier. Eat more vegetables.
3. KNEEL for all of my personal prayers.
4. Help at least one person out daily.
5. Strengthen my relationship with my siblings.
6. Read some new books. 
7. Live my testimony.
8. No negative talk.
9. Save money.
10. Take more pictures. 
time waits for no one.
be your best self.
