I Could Have

So for mama's birthday, yesterday, Taylor went and picked up Bri from far away Logan. It was a surprise for all of us! Bri and I stayed up LATE watching Moulin Rouge. Then we talked for a little bit and by the time I made it to reading my scriptures it was 1:45. Then I HAD to write in my journal cause that's just how I am now-a days. So I was asleep by 2:30. I know this because I did not hear the clock chime 2:30. And that means I was asleep before my head hit the pillow(if you were my daddy(or Landon) you would say pellow. But I am not them, so I say pillow.). I set my alarm for 10:30 so I could shower before my most favoritest.... customer?.... came over at 11. That would be Lillie Capri(I babysit her. She's my cousin's daughter.). I turned the volume on my phone all the way up so I would for sure wake up.
Well I got a call from Bri at 8:30 and her ring tone is the Startrek Voyager theme song. I'm pretty sure I jumped 3 feet in the air horizontally. You could say it gave me a fright. I couldn't go back to sleep after that. So I thought I'd catch up on some blogging.
At 9:30ish I thought, "I should go mow the back yard(because we all know that it NEEDS it BAD!!!)." But now it's 10:30 and I have to go take a shower so Lillie's parents don't think I'm a slob. Maybe I could mow the lawn while watching Lillie.... Then I could get paid double time. I will find a way!
So after all that, the moral of the story is....
I could have mowed the lawn.... but I didn't.


Here are a few of my favorite lines.
"I am a despicable human being."
"Do you smell that Blondie? Take a good breath through the nose. I'm getting part man smell and the other part really bad man smell. Over all it just smells like the color brown."
"Super human good looks, I've always had them. Born with it!"
"What I bought them.... Most of them."
Yeah I love that movie. It's the funniest thing since the Tarzan joke!
So if you haven't seen it.... YOU MUST SEE IT!!!!!!!
End. Of. Discussion.

Pouring Out Blessings

So I had a bad night last night. I was really down on myself. So I started looking at my stickey notes that are placed all over my room and I found two that helped a little. And then I decided that I wanted to go to the temple in the morning. But I had no way to get there. Colton and I had talked about going to the temple this week. So I texted him and asked if he would be willing to go early in the morning so I could still get to youth conferance on time. He being the wonderful person he is said yes.
I set my alarm for 5am. I was out the door by 5:20 and to the temple by 5:45(if not sooner).
As I was walking into the temple I remembered something that President Hinckley said(this is the way I remember it so don't quote me if it's wrong), "It will all work out."
At that moment I was comforted. The second I walked into the temple I could feel the spirit.
I had a wonderful spiritual experiance durring the confermations. And as I was sitting waiting to be baptized I remembered my stickey notes. They read, "Oh how great is the plan of our God!" and, "Cheer up your hearts and remember!"
I thought to myself how can I be upset when I KNOW that the Lord has a plan. All I had to do was cheer up and remember.
How could any of us be so upset over so many little things when we know that the Lord has a plan and He is pouring out blessings to all of us, each and every day.
He loves us.
So cheer up your hearts and remember!

And Then It Started To Rain

I was having a wonderful day! I woke up early(whenever dad was leaving the house this morning), I read some of my book, I watched last nights America's Got Talent, I got showered and ready for the day, I look super cute, I ran a few erraends, by this time it was 1:30, I started watching Iron Giant, and then I went to the kick off of Youth Conferance. I was having a BLAST!!! I caught up with my friends and we had a super ultra fantastic fireside(thank you president Watson!!!)!!!!! Then it was time for dessert. I hardly ever get dessert at church things because people don't think about the odd ones out, this was no change, but it doesn't bug me like it used to.
And then it got bad. Dad pulled me aside and told me that my licence had been revoked by the state, because, blah blah blah and, blah blah blah and all that jazz. So now I was upset. Then we were going to do a movie at Megan's house but I knew that I was going to be mister grumpy pants and I didn't want to ruin everyone else's night. So I walked Megan home instead. I texted my dad so that I wouldn't get left behind and forgotten about.... Yeah.... He didn't get that. So when I got back to the church, after walking Meg to her house, I was the only one there. I called dad, no answer. I called mom, no answer. So I sat in the grass for a little while and then dad called back wondering where I was. I told him I was at the church, he said he'd be there in a minute....
And then it started to rain.

Making Fun of the Boys

Playing a video game,
Taylor, "Landon use it!"
Landon, "I can't!"
Taylor, "I'm getting eaten by a jelly fish!!!!!!"
Dad(sounding much like uncle Jeff), "NNNOOOOOOO!!!! NOOO!!! NOOO!!"
Landon, "Taylor come hurt me."
