Yes, Please.



Ummmm.....
Seriously?
Glamping in Moab and Yellowstone.
Sign. Me. Up.

This is my kind of camping.
For real.

#becauseofhim


I love this video.
The message is timeless and beautiful.

I taught a lesson last Sunday,
to the youth in one ward in my Stake,
and the topic was on knowing WHO you are.

I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father, 
who loves me
and I love him.

I know this.
It colors everything that I do,
and has an impact on all that I am.

Because of Him.

Thoughts on General Conference

I loved this last General Conference!
I was totally sick with a sinus infection...

but maybe that just gave me that much more of a reason
to be still and listen.

Here are some of my "doodles" from the talks:








On Sunday,
despite being sick
I was offered some last minute tickets 
to the Sunday afternoon session,
and I would never turn that down!
So my friend and I headed downtown.
We had GREAT seats!
{and so much fun!}



I already cannot wait for October!

March Madness Winner!


Loved the craziness 
of this year's tournament...

Who would have guessed
that a 7 seed and an 8 seed would play for the final?

{not me, obviously!}

Congratulations go to Nancy...
who picks UConn every year,
and for whom it has 
{finally}
paid off!

Made Me Laugh Today...

And that is saying something.
Because I have a sinus infection,
and I am feeling miserable.

Julia Louis Dreyfus...
So funny.
and so true.

Flashback Friday - Claudia

Today,
because I've been thinking about her a lot this week,
my flashback Friday post is about my Stepmom.
Claudia.

Basically,
one of the most amazing women I know.

she dotes on all her grandchildren
{loves them to death}
and as much as I try to be the favorite Aunt...
I can never out-do Grandma Claudia.

 This photo is from when she and I visited Craig in Nashville.
We went to the Bluebird Cafe for dinner!
{so fun!}
 And really?
This is the GEM of all the photos I have of her.
This is from 1978...
The year she married my Dad.
She was SO young.
And look at her...
Bravely taking on ALL. THOSE. KIDS.
{she must have been at least somewhat crazy!}

What I know for sure,
is that I will be forever indebted to her
for swooping in and saving me.

My life would definitely have been different
without her in it.

But I do have to mention...
those clothes!
Wow.
70's awesome.
velour suits and "sound of music" jumpers.
just...
Wow.

Currently Crushing On...

this.

oh. my.


it just...
really speaks to my fragile soul in me that is trying to date...

{what can I say? online dating....}

Say something, I'm giving up on you
I'll be the one, if you want me to
Anywhere I would've followed you
Say something, I'm giving up on you

And I am feeling so small
It was over my head
I know nothing at all

And I will stumble and fall
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to crawl

Say something, I'm giving up on you
I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
Anywhere I would've followed you
Say something, I'm giving up on you

And I will swallow my pride
You're the one that I love
And I'm saying goodbye

Say something, I'm giving up on you
And I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
And anywhere I would've followed you (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
Say something, I'm giving up on you

Say something, I'm giving up on you
Say something...
