H to the A to the double P Y FRIDAY


Last Friday we all went on an adventure to SLC and rode our bikes. We started up at the top of the huge hill, and rode all the way down to Main street. The four of us discovered SO many cool places! We were planning on riding the train back up to our car. But we missed the last trax. haha so we were stuck at the bottom. Luckily, the guys were life savers and one of them stayed with the girls and the other one road his bike all the way back up. So if you're looking for an adventure go down to the city and ride bikes! You won't regret it:) Happy Friday everyone!!

Spring break 2k14


Day 1: California/boarding the ship

So, we left Saturday night at like 10ish at night. Yeah I know like the most unsafe thing in the world. We got to Cali and walked around on the beach and then got on the HUGE ship. Haha it was funny cuz when the workers asked me for my passport I gave them a copy of mine (mine's at the MTC). They were like "Why do you have a copy?" I explained to them that i was going on a mission and it was at the training center and they were SO confused. I guess I forgot that I wasn't in Utah anymore. haha made me laugh every time.

Day 2: Catalina Island

Right as we got on the island my camera died so I didn't capture very many pics. When we got there we were gonna snorkeling but the water was FA-reazing, so we deciding to rent bikes instead! I just love bikes so much:) We rode across the whole island, it was beautiful. 

Day 3: Ensenada Mexico

 ("In Ensenada we give our cows tequila, they happy cows") 

So it was crazy being in Mexico for the first time in my life. I can't believe that I'm gonna be living there for a whole year and a half. I don't think I quite understand what I'm getting myself into! haha just kidding. but it was so awesome. Right when I got on the bus i was overwhelmed because I knew that i needed to serve in Mexico. It was so fun to walk around and buy things in the little market place. It made me realize everything I have right now and it definitely made me grateful for what I have. I ended up giving some of the people there some of my money because I knew that they needed it more then I did. (Obviously I won't be able to do that anymore.) I'm in freaking love with all the bracelets and bags that they sale. Oh, and I bought two tacos at this little place on the side of the road and they were probably the best tacos I've ever had. Sorry mom, I love your tacos too. haha but anyways Mexico was awesome and I'm so excited to speak spanish and have pesos:)

Day 4: A day at sea

The last day everyone just hung out on the ship as we cruised in the ocean. We just chilled with everyone. I met so many awesome people that are changing the freaking world. Plus the guys were off the charts hot! haha just kidding (but not really) 
Plus, I pretended that i was on the Titanic so that was pretty awesome. haha even though i missing the most important part, which is the beautiful man! Oh well, who needs boys anyways? haha just kiddin! The next day we all said our goodbyes and we headed back to Huntington beach and then to Las Vegas for the night. So that's that.

Spring Break 2k14 was unforgettable:)

L I F E 


i started thinking today life is so weird. last summer was lucky enough to go on a senior trip with all my friends growing up. i remember when i got there the only thing that mattered to me was having a good time. that was my number one priority, i remember thinking how excited i was to move to college, i remember that honestly my the only thing i questioned was if i trusted to leave my rental bike unattended while i ran to go grab something in the beach house. i don't think that i realized what was really happening. i was on this trip because i WAS growing up. we were celebrating our accomplishments in high school. i remember walking with my friend on the beach while the cold ocean hit our feet. i thought i had my life all figured out. i was gonna go to school and work on my education, make friends date a few guys, get married. can i just tell you how wrong i was. yeah i did work a little at school and maybe dated a few guys but my mission was never something that i actually planned on doing. yeah it was in my head but it was never an actual plan. well things don't really goes as planned. at all. in fact i am a totally different person then i was yesterday. like what the freak who am i? haha i always find myself asking that. not gonna lie sometimes it's scary not knowing what to do. people come and go into your life for a reason. it's a lot easier said then done (if that makes sense) because you really don't know what the reason is now. but in the long run there is always a reason. i don't wanna grow up, i really don't wanna grow up. i wish i could be 19 for the rest of my life. the more i get older the more complicated life gets. i feel emotions i have never felt or even thought i could feel for that matter. but i can't stop time. and to tell you the truth i don't think i would even if i had the chance. i'm excited to see my plan, i'm excited to learn new things and feel even more NEW emotions. Henry B. Eyring said "No one is destined to fail." life it hard but you will always succeed if you learn a lesson. So there's my little rant on life. haha sometimes you just gotta have a little pep talk with yourself- that was mine for the week.
