(for rach and tris) i got this funny email....

....and i HAD TO share it because it made me laugh so hard... (this is mainly for my sister & sister-in-law who will get the largest kick out of it)
10 Things Men Don't Say Enough:
10. "I hate to miss the game, but this floor could really use a good scrubbing."
9. "Why don't you buy a nice new pair of shoes to go with that outfit?" (these are like my DREAM words!!!)
8. "Let's rent a romantic movie. If I see one more car chase I'm gonna hurl."
7. "Yeah, I'm pretty tired, too, so let's just cuddle."
6. "Why can't they show real-looking women in those lingerie catalogs?"
5. "My thumns are getting tired. Would you mind holding the remote for a while?"
4. "I'm not sure we've seen enough of your family lately."
3. "You got enough blankets over there?"
2. "Sure, I'll be glad to hold your purse while you're standing next to this construction site."
1. "I'll love you forever, and I sure hope you know it!"

emily's wedding!!!

so i think this is my last wedding for 2010... emily and brigham were married on friday, august 13th, 2010 in the San Diego Temple... way for me to go out with a bang with the last wedding of the year! their reception was SO awesome! the best way i could describe it is it was totally emily! some pictures:

brigham plays violin BEAUTIFULLY so he played a rendition (that he made up!) of "families can be together forever" (a popular mormon hymn) and "fools rush in" (by elvis).

The bridesmaids! i have to say one of my favorite parts about weddings is meeting the new friends! pam, lynae, emily, marly, and me!

emily and stacy

bouquet shot!
emily just looked SOOOOO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thank you for letting me be apart of your special day! everything was just perfect!!!! :) LOVE TO BOTH OF YOU!!!!

updates on my life... (DISCLAIMER: this is WORDY!)

so MOST of you have probably already heard what's going on in my life through the grapevine but i'm ready to come out and say it myself!

but anyway, i have decided to go here:

to become one of these:

i have decided to do this in an FAQ fashion:

Q: So you’re not going to ASU?
A: No. I was originally going to go there because they were cheaper and I actually knew more people there but I have since changed my mind.
Q: Why aren’t you going to ASU anymore?
A: When I got my UA acceptance letter, I looked into it just for fun. Everyone there was WAY nicer (my counselor actually knows who I am as opposed to my ASU counselor who would respond to each email saying, “are you assigned to me? Because your ID number suggests you’re assigned to steve.” And I’d have to RE-explain that I was one of the students that got assigned to her while “steve” was on medical leave. Every. Freaking. Time.) I felt like just a number to ASU but UA has always tried SO HARD to help me get everything underway! I just felt so much better about UA.
Q: Soooo, why haven’t you left yet?
A: Originally I was scheduled to leave in August (2010). I decided to extend my stay in Murrieta and go to UA online for this semester. A few reasons why: 1. Tyler (boyfriend)’s Mission Papers don’t go in til October 1, 2010 which means he would still be here while I was there and I would either a. be in Murrieta, B. wanting to be in Murrieta, c. be on the phone with him in Murrieta, or d. devising a way to get to Murrieta. That seemed silly to me. 2. I had to take one more language class than originally anticipated and since I had taken the first 3 years through the MSJC program, I decided to finish it up. 3. I could continue to work here and save more money (UA IS DANG EXPENSIVE!). 4. Its what I wanted to do.
Q: When DO you leave?
A: First week in January. I’ve already turned in my notice and my last day of work is December 30th. I’m depressed about leaving my job.
Q: So do you know anyone in Tucsan, Arizona?
A: no.
Q: Aren’t you terrified?
A: yes.
Q: How will you get through?
A: The amazing support of my friends and family! THANK YOU TO ALL!!!
