Today I turned 22 years old. I still feel pretty young, so I guess that's good. I have this weird memory. The day my sister Mimi turned 22 we were sitting out on our back porch and it was her 22nd birthday. I got this really overwhelming feeling like wow, my sister is 22! That's so Cool!  I've never forgotten that feeling. So for some reason reason it felt super cool and kinda super weird to turn 22. It just seems like yesterday that my sister did. I've done a lot of really cool things in the last 22 years.

- I was born
- I was adopted
- I cut my hair at age 3 and left in on the neighbors porch
- I wore glasses until I was a Junior in High School
- I've had lasik and bunion surgery 
- I was a Madrigal
- I've had a million embarrassing moments
- I traveled to Californina, Washington D.C., Texes and New York with my dance group in high school
- I was an RA for a whole year
- I've traveled to the Bahama's with Thomas 5 months prego!
- I've been to a Taylor Swift concert
- I traveled to Alaska and was a go-cart tour guide
- I've kissed 10 boys (did you know that, Lol) Thomas is by far the best one:D :D
- I'm 6 months away from completing my 4 year degree in collge
- I got married in the Temple!! 
- I've learned to cook better and be more crafty (that's saying a lot)
- I've had a c-section
- I've lived in a mobile home for 2 years and it was freaking awesome
- I've been married for 3 years
- I have the cutest almost two year old little boy!
- I now have hair that is so long, it is really close to touching my butt (It's our back up financial plan) bahahah
- I've learned that it's actually better to do the dishes thoughout the day, then to do them all at night!! (big one)

I've done a lot of other cool stuff to but that's just a list of 22 things that I could think of off the top of my head. I would have to say I'm very happy and living life to the fullest. This summer is full of some really fun plans and I'm really looking forward to a lot of fun things. I love having my birthday in the summer. I had a extremely incredible birthday full of love and fun. Yes I did get spoiled. I got an ipod nano (used, because were poor) YES, 2 shirts and a jacket! I loved my birthday it was great! I cant wait for the years ahead.

Just Thinking

My brother-in-law Morgan graduated from high school yesterday. I think it naturally brings back the memories of being young. Pretty sure I was the only one bawling, but ever since Asher was born I cry over just about anything and weddings are the worst. I don't even have to be related, or have any past relationships with the people getting married and I cry. I blog stock people and cry while reading people's trials and hardships. Haha, I even cry during Disney movies. It's pretty hilarious if you ask me.

Someday's I get really jealous of other people. I ask stupid questions like, "Why did I get married so young?" "Why did I have a baby so young?" "Why can't my skin be clear?" "Why don't I have more money?" "How would life be different?" I hate when I ask myself those questions. Because I'm so happy with my sweet life. I know it's the adversary trying to make me feel worthless. Someday's I just plain miss being young. I want to go shake all the little highschoolers heads and say, "You are only young once!!" Lol that's what I always tell my brother Morgan and it just goes right over his head. I also tell him, "Don't make any stupid decisions or you'll have to report to me!!" I hope that one sticks a little bit better. He is going off to Snow College and it just seems like yesterday I graduated from high school and went to Snow.

My heart goes out to all those who have and are struggling with trials they never dreamed of experiencing. I wish I could hug every single one of them. It makes me realize that I truly don't have any room to complain about anything. I really should be the one to be strong to help lift them up. I am so grateful for the amazing example they are to me. I guess the point of writing this post was to ramble and remind myself of how grateful and happy I truly am. I'm go grateful for the wonderful people God has put in my life. I know I frequently make stupid mistakes but I guess it makes life more interesting. May life be so happy and filled with tonz and tonz of happieness all over the place.

During Morgan's Graduation one of my best friends watched Asher. I was super glad I got a babysitter, it was 2 1/2 hours long and I got nice little kicks every couple minutes from the cute little kiddo's behind me. Stephanie Hyde is an amazing photographer and I would highly recommend her to anybody. She took these while babysitting and gave them to us as a surprise. I'm doing my practicum with her this summer. Gosh I love that girl, she is truly an amazing women. Luv ya steph!!

The End
