The Band Perry

I love this song. It reminds me so much of Sophie. Not just the words but the actually voice sounds just like Sophie. I feel like this is in some way Sophie touching our lives.


I am loving all of these J Crew swimming suits.
If the sun would decide to shine more and if I was payed a little
more then all 3 of these would be mine!

Elder Danny Christensen

This champion comes home tomorrow!!!!! 2 years in Fiji.
See you tomorrow Danny!


Say hello to my new baby: Fran! I love my new car!!!!

EFY Especially for Youth

I start EFY this Sunday. I am so excited. I have been studying and getting ready ever since I got my acceptance letter. Last Saturday we had an ALL DAY training event. When I say ALL DAY I mean ALL DAY 10am-5pm. Im fortunate enough to have my work give me time off for the weeks I'm working EFY.

Funny things my sprouts say

The other day I was wearing these shoes:
During circle time one of my sprouts turned to me and said "How come you are wearing boy shoes today?" I looked down at my shoes and the only think I could say was "Ya these are kind of boy shoes." Later that day he said another funny thing. I bought a new curling iron. It's really big and makes my curls super relaxed. This was the first day I had tried it out. He said to me "Did you forget to brush your hair today?" I said "No I did my hair today." He then said "My hair looks like that when I first wake up and then my mom brushes it and it fixes it." YES!!!! If I'm not lookin good to a 3 year old then there is no way a 23 year old will want to date me. I laughed all day long.

I have returned

I have dusted off my keyboard and am ready for my return.

New car

This could possibly be my new car. It is a Fiat 500. It is basically a larger smart car. I went with Mccall last week and test drove one. They are so nice and so cute. Thoughts?


I cannot begin to express how excited I am.
I am going to be an EFY counselor this summer!!!!

The Book Thief

I am in love with this book. It is so good. This book is about a girl in WWII. Her mom leaves her with a foster family, her brother dies, she hides a Jewish man in her basement, she attends Hitler's Youth Academy, her city is bombed and so many more things. The book is narrated by death. In this book the girl learns to read. She learns how powerful words can be. She attends many of Hitler's speeches and realizes how powerful his words are and how his words are affecting her life and her community in German. If you are looking for something to read you MUST read this! I read it in about 4 days. I could not put it down!!!

Nora Jonsey

I have the cutest new bird. Her name is Nora Jonesy.
I love her.

It was about time for this to happen to my drawers!!!


Art History

McCall is currently on the AP art history trip in San Francisco. It's weird to think that 5 years ago I was on the same trip. McCall and Will (my best friend Jane's little brother) decided to recreate a picture that me and Jane took on this exact trip. So cute!

Places I've traveled



American Idol

I'm totally loving this year's season of American Idol. I especially love the judges. Actually people who know what they are talking about.
Most of all I am loving Casey!


I've committed to blogging more.
Expect more blog posts.

I was on the Koins for Kenya blog the other day and I found these cute pictures from this summer.
This is my best friend Konga. She followed me every where. I miss her so much. (Notice her pink toe nails)
The kids loved bubbles. Notice Konga right next to me in her cute red dress. Her family had good clothes and they had shoes. Her brother is the boy in red with shoes.
This is the day I found Konga. She was standing in the dirt crying. She was so sick. Her poor ear. I snuck her ear drops and food and medicine every day. By the time I left she was all better!! Yay!!
This was my favorite function we went to. We had a massive dance party that lasted a good 20 mins. The kids were singing and clapping as we all danced.
This is at the ceremony for Dallin's school. The ceremony lasted 4 very long hours. Look at the looks on our faces. Classic!
Here is the rose that we burned on all the school desk in honor of Sophie!


About a month ago I wanted to burn some music for my class. I wanted them to be exposed to the classic children songs that I grew up with.

Songs such as:
The itsy bitsy spider
Head shoulders knees and toes
1 2 buckle my shoe
Mary had a little lamb
Twinkle twinkle little star
I'm a little tea pot
and so on

When I put the cd on not much happened. They almost didn't even notice it was on. They only knew a few songs. I went back on iTunes and I saw the top children's songs were those from popular tv shows- Handy Manny, Bob the Builder, Max and Ruby, Diego, Imagination Movers, Yo Gabba Gabba and so on. When I put that cd on I swear the kids thought it was Christmas. They were screaming and jumping up and down. They knew all the words and exactly what tv show it was from. Wow have times changed since I was a kid.

This book is awesome!


I have been taking lots of Bikram yoga classes. My aunt and uncle own Salt Lake City Bikram. I have always really liked taking yoga classes so I thought I would try Bikram. The difference with this class is it is done in a room that is heated to 105 degrees. It is awesome!!!

Each class is 90 minutes long. The class goes through 26 poses.
Does anyone want to take a class with me?

Some one (unknown) told the director of my school
that I blog inappropriately about my school and my class.
In case you were wondering...
I don't.
That is not true.
Good thing I cleared it up with my director.
This person is no longer allowed to
1. say that I am an inappropriate blogger
2. read my blog
