bridesmaid dilemma

My beautiful friend Jessica is getting married this spring
& I am lucky enough to be one of her bridesmaids!
(Jess is the one on the far right!)

I have been brainstorming some dress ideas.
She wants them a grey/vintage/cocktail... kind of dress.
 Here are some I found that I love!
Help me decide which one to choose!

What do you think??
If you know of any place I can get some more dresses like these,
pleaseeee let me know!!

Hurray for weekends!

Last weekend me, my mom, & my adorable cousin Cassie had a little girls night out.
It was much needed for all of us I believe.
Started off at Forgurt & ended in the movie 'I Am Number Four'
I'll be honest, I had my heart set on going to the Justin Bieber movie
but it got vetoed right away.
I didn't want to see I Am Number Four.
Looked dumb,
But I have to say.... it was wayyy good!

So happy its Friday!
Will is coming home tonight instead of tomorrow from his baseball games.
Can't wait to spend the weekend with him!
Cause its rare during baseball season!

Happy weekend!
Lets hope this Utah storm isn't too harsh on us!

I'm at work right now & I'm freeeeezing.
Like almost want to cry.
I have this weird thing,
when I drink a lot of water it makes me super cold....
Is that normal?
I have a water bottle at work that I just keep filling up subconciously
& then I pay the price.
bathroom every 10 mins. & I turn into an ice cube.

Ughh its partly this weather too.
I'm sooo over it.
just feel blahhhh today.
I need a diet coke asap.
Soooo anyone in the provo/orem area that wants to bring me one to work...
I'll love you forever.
ohh & bring a blanket while you're at it :)

(Sorry for the boring post. I feel lazy. Next time I'll add some spice, I promise.)

to die for

My sister sent us this picture this morning.
ummm you can't tell me he isn't the cutest thing you've ever seen.
I love my nephew!

Valentine's Dayy

I know I know I'm a little late!
But this week has been crazy busy!
Now its the LONG weekend
& I have time to blog.

Valentine's day was perfect.
Will made me this cute blanket for his baseball games this spring
He also got me lotion & perfume
& lots of chocolate :)
He is so great.

Then we went to dinner that night!
Everywhere was packed in Provo
but we battled the crowds
& shopped while we waited.
He knows just how to make me happy ha.

The night before Valentine's
my cute mom got me, my sister, bro in law, nephew, & dad
some little (well not so little) valentine gifts!
She did too much
but we love her so so much!

Hope you all had a great V-day like I did!
Now lets get Febraury over with
& bring on some warm weather!!

christlike love

"Love is the motivating principle by which the Lord leads us along the way towards becoming like Him, our perfect example. Our way of life, hour by hour, must be filled with the love of God and love for others."

Table for two

I saw this Valentine's table here and instantly fell in love. I don't know when I would ever be this elaborate for a Valentine's date or if I'm even creative enough to think of something this amazing, but it is to die for!
I would probably be sneaking some of those cupcakes all night!

Well its FINALLY Friday! I've been wishing for today since Monday. This week was a long one. I had three tests, two papers, and three quizzes to keep me plenty busy! I was in the library everyday this week & thats impressive for me. I hate that place.

I hope all of you have romantic plans for this Valentine's Day weekend. Filled with chocolate, roses, date nights, & your sweetheart! We're going to dinner tonight with Will's parents in Salt Lake! Not super romantic to be with the parentals, but it will be a  fun time! Then he's off to St. George for the weekend. Yay meee! ha ohhh well, I'll just spoil my parents plans & join them! Table for 3 please?! Hey it beats going to Vegas like I did last year for cheer over Valentine's...... just picture me....had knee surgery the week before.... crutching down the entire Vegas strip. HA. Thats a story for another time :)

love online swimsuit shopping

Tis the season to get the best sneak previews of all the upcoming spring collections.
& that means new swimwear folks!
I love shopping for swimsuits.....wearing them...not so much.
Nonetheless, I continue to "window shop"
until I actually get the $$$ to buy them!
Here are some of my favs I've found so far!
(p.s. I found some on Vicky's I loved, but the pic included the model & I didn't want to seem like a perv.)

these would be cute with all of the above too :)

Yoga = new love

Since I've finished cheering, I'll be honest I have struggled trying to find something new in my life. I know I have talked about this before, but its true. I feel anxious. I go to work & school & thats it. I don't have anything that is really mine. I go to the gym a lot, but even that is getting routine. There are a million things I want to do & always have, but I am really nervous to start new. I'm a perfectionist, so therefore I am scared to be bad at something. Not saying I'm good at everything I do, but a complete new hobby is pretty much a guaranteed struggle.

For instance, I signed up to run the Provo Halloween Half Marathon back in October. I was really excited. I love running & run almost everyday, so I was prepared. At the last minute I backed out. I'm still mad at myself. I guess the fear of making a fool out of myself or not being as comfortable with it as the other runners.... I'm not really sure either.
Am I the only one who is this retarded?

ANYWAY. The point to all of the blabbing was that I have found something I really enjoy & would consider a new loveeee! YOGA. I've done it before in dance a little & on P90X, but never really taken a class. My old First Aid teacher (who I absolutely adore & want to be like) teaches yoga at Golds. Her class is amazing! Shes sorta hippie ishhh & organic & I love it! Completely helps with the stress of school. Plus I keep up with my flexability I worked so hard to get. I suggest that everyone try it. You'll be hook!

And hey if I can get my bod half as good as these hot, yoga-lovin celebs,
count me in!

all you need is loveee

It's a week until Valentine's Day, so I thought I would share with you some things I love over the next week. Whether you are spending the day with that special someone, or with your best girlfriends, or even by yourself, we all must agree that one of the best things about Valentine's Day are the treats :) No matter how much you like or dislike the holiday, nothing is better than some sugar, right? Well take a look at these amazing desserts. I love/want them all!
