TAG-Your're It.

Shara tagged me...so here we go....

What were you doing ten years ago?

I was 11 (and a half!) yrs. old & in 6th grade. I was still in Elementry cause of the crazy way the Utah school system does things....I was very short ( no surprise) & my best friend was Allie Branscomb. Pretty sure I dressed horribly. Wore Doc Martens till I lost one in the snow. Ha. I still secretly LOVED Barbies & American Girl Dolls. I played soccer & my boyfriend was Corbin McCabe....we'd been together since 4th grade. HaHa. I couldn't wait till I turned 12 so I could finally go into Young Womens & shop in the young misses department.

What were you doing five years ago?

I was 16 & in my junior year @ Lone Peak High School. I had started dating Dan Macdonald (my first love) & we dated for over a year. My best friends were Jena & Bethany. Loved those girls! My favorite classes were Painting & Creative writing. My favorite teacher was my art teacher Mrs. Shepherd. We'd joke that she was my aunt. I was working my first job at ColdStone Creamery. It was the BEST job ever! I was driving but didn't have my own car. I loved buying little boy t-shirts from D.I. Still was short, I think that's when I stopped growing.

Five things on my to-do list today:

1. Do good on my cleanse.
2. Drink LOTS of water.
3. Work Out
4. Talk to mom about bills
5. Go talk to GM @ Winger's

What snacks I enjoy:

What don't I love?! My family is a total snacker kind. I love chips & salsa, actually any kind of chips. I love salty snacks! Nachos. Peanut butter cups. CORN NUTS!

What would I do if I suddenly became a billionaire?

Pay off all my bills. Buy a nice car. And go on a 3 month sunny & beachy vacation!

Three bad habits?

1. Bite my nails like there's no tomorrow.
2. Can get really impatient sometimes.
3. .....Can't think....

Five places I've lived:

1. Camino, Ca
2. Alpine, Ut
3. Cedar Hills, Ut
4. Vista, Ca
5. Orem, Ut

Five jobs I've had:

1. ColdStone Creamery
2. Wal-Mart
3. Winger's
4. Accounting Options
5. StoresOnline, Inc.

Five things you don't know about me:

1. I have weird OCD moments
2. I like routines. And once I have one it's really hard to break it.
3. I have Scoliois.
4. I sing ALL the time...by myself.
5. Sometimes when I drive I make up a storyline in my head & pretend I'm in a Movie. Ha.

TAG..you're it! *which means I TAG...Brittani & Jayni

St. George Weekend Road Trip

On our Way!
Checking out Dixie Rock

The "Crack"-Yes there are people.

Beautiful St. George Temple

Brady & Jess- We're Bunny Huntin'.

Pretty Sunset.

Casey & I goofing around. Where's the Bunnies?

~*~A few weeks ago my friends & I went down to St. George for the weekend. We had a lot of fun. We drove down friday afternoon & encountered some crazy weather along the way. Once arriving we me up with Brady's sister Brielle & some other friends & had ourselves an INTENSE game of Spoons. We also checked out Dixie Rock & "The Crack"...pretty cool but I am way to clausterphobic to do it. We also went bunny huntin'...but didn't really find any. :-( It was still a lot of fun. We also went swimming & bowling as well. Once Sunday rolled around we had a nice bar-b-que & then headed back up to good 'ol Orem. Fun times!

& that's FINAL....

Wow. The divorce was finalized March 4th.
I am officially Single....

People are saying congrats...& that's how it should be.
I do have a mixture of feelings however.

I am...Relieved - This has been stressing me out a little. I have felt like I was never married in the first place for awhile.I stopped being married as soon as I left in my mind. So it's nice that it's real.

I am...Sad - Even though I know it's for the best & it was the right choice it's still a sad moment for me. My marriage is over. I can't help but feel like I failed in some ways. It hurts. I do have some good memories & I will never forget them.

I am...Excited - To be moving forward with my life. Yes I am 21 & divorced. But I am 21 & still able to start over fresh. I can go back to school. I still have time to do some amazing things with my life. And this has not scared me away from Love & Marriage. I do want to fall in love & get married again (hopefully before I'm 25-haha). I have my whole life in front of me!

To Will - I loved you! Even though our marriage didn't work out, I still think of you as one of my best friends. You knew the real me & you always knew how to make me laugh. You will have have a piece of my heart. Always.

To Myself - I know the last 6-8 months have been some of the hardest we've ever endured. We cried, we hurt, and felt so low. This was a lesson learned. & everything happens for a reason. For the future we know who & what to look for. This has been a true test & what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. I love you!
