I just have to put this on here because it is so cute!

And this one.

One more!

Ok. Done:)

Well, we all know by now that I really suck at this whole keeping up with the blog thing, but, I am going to change. It is my goal to post at the very least two times a week from now on.
I believe the main reason I have been slacking on posting on my blog is because of the little distractions I have in my life right now. I am not super busy or lazy, but more of that I love to learn knew things and sometimes that is a major cause for my forgetfulness in my life. I want to learn all that is around me but I get to entrapped in the little things to catch my breath and focus on what matters most at the moment. I want to share one of the other goals I have for myself. I want to show my love for people more and show that I truly do care for them, even if sometimes it may not seem so. I am a very secretive person when it comes to my feelings. I find it hard to show how I really feel. I have a fear of being judged, a really big fear of it. Because of this fear, I do not express how I feel to and about others. I was picked on for reasons that I do not fully understand. I do not know exactly why the Lord put me through what he did. I would love to know now, but that, from what I understand, is out of the picture for now.
Around my 19th birthday, I started to realize some things in my life. I do not want to watch movies/tv that have even a little bit of inappropriateness in them anymore, or even read books and magazines that did so. Now don't get me wrong. I am not perfect nor will I ever be in this life. I will stumble and maybe even smash my face on the ground every now and then, but, I will still try my hardest to stay strong in my beliefs. I always talk about how I will not read Harry Potter because of the base of the story, witchcraft. I tell people that I will not ever read the Twilight saga or even the Hunger Games series. Since when have vampires, or teens fighting other teens for life ever been ok? Never. I wont go into detail to save you the eyesore. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am preparing now for the time when I will have to prove evil wrong in front of many, or even few. I feel that Halloween is not an appropriate holiday for me to be celebrating. The whole, lets dress up as something that is not real or even close to being appropriate to party and get candy or be seen is not acceptable in my eyes. I do not want to just live. I want to stand and be steadfast in my beliefs(at least, as close as I can to it). I will not watch The Notebook or Titanic because of the  strong sexual content. Movies like those are made to stir up feeling in the human body that are not to be used outside the sacred covenant of marriage. I know it to be true because I was watching one of the mentioned movies and noticed somethings were not right at all with how my body was reacting to the content of these scenes. The sounds, lighting, dress and appearance of the characters and dialog were put together just for the sole purpose of making the body want more. More visual pleasure. More intense emotional "connection" to the character(s). Now you might not believe me on this unless you have experienced this for yourself. I am not saying that you should go out and rent the latest chick flick with strong content in it to test the waters but, that you should be cautious of what you will allow your body to be submitted too. Just the smallest of all tastes will cause a fiery furnace to burn inside you until you have lost all control and can only turn to your Creator our Father for the help to free yourself from the evil that encases you. A lot of people can go through life without this "taste" even affecting them to the slightest bit at all. But, there are many who fall prey to the evil of the world because they did not care for trying to stay strong or maybe they just slipped once and that was the fall of their life. You can get up after, if you choose to be humble and give all you can to stand for what you knew all along was right. There is always a better life than what you are living right now. You may have a wonderful life and not even begin to fathom how your life could get any better because of the rich and mighty blessings that the Lord has so happily placed in your lap but, I know it can and Will get better.  

I am supposed to move to UT for something. I do not know what it is at the moment, but when it comes I will be so grateful for the choice I made to follow the prompting that the Holy Spirit gave me back in Oct. I am really curious to know what it is. Is it possibly marriage? Maybe a job? Or maybe I am supposed to help someone who can only be helped by me alone. I want to know but at the same time I really want to be surprised. If it is marriage, I would be perfectly content with me ending up with a baby soon after:).

I should probably go to bed now and stop this whole, type everything that is in my head right now. For if I keep going I might end up telling some secrets that just might make you think of me as a weirdo.

So goodnight, sleep tight and sweet dreams.

Eeeee.......I found out last month that I am supposed to move to Utah!! I will be moving the end of Dec to Provo. I got an apartment. I need to find a job and pack my stuff up right now. I hope I will be able to find a second job soon to make a little more money for when I move. I am so excited to move!:) So ya that is basically all I can think of to put on here. Yep.

I love Fall/Winter!! I decided about two years ago that I wasn't going to celebrate halloween anymore. Some people say that it is retarded. Halloween has never be and will never be a holiday that you can really feel the spirit on. I do not like the idea of walking around with a mask on scaring people. It makes me uncomfortable having some one dress as a vampire or Chucky or wearing contacts that scare little kids. There are so many more costumes they bother me. Stores full of evil masks and inappropriate outfits are not my thing.
I prefer the change of colors, the cooking, the smell of rain and so many other things!

I bought myself some long sleeve shirts from Target! I love them so much:)

So my sister and I decided that the nasty stripes that we had painted on the walls in our bedroom about 5 years ago. We went with a simple grey-ish white. We had to prime the walls with two coats of Kills sealer/primer before the color could go on. I came home from work on monday and shelby had finished all but the window frame without me. I love our room now! Simple and clean:) We also took the pop corn texture off the ceiling. That stuff sucks. A lot. We also decided to keep the walls clean and simple with our pictures.

What it looked like before and after.

So we were able to cover almost all of the stains. The weird coloured splotches on the walls is putty to fill the holes.  There was one stain that was still pretty obvious in the corner next to Shelby's bed. Even though the stain is there we are still very happy with the results:)
(The grey dot in all the pictures is a smudge on the camera lens)

Here are the pictures of the walls by our beds. My wall has the boat. Shelby's is the other one:)

After conference my family and I(plus David) went for a hike. This was the view we had! I loved it!

I just have to say......I LOVE TO COOK!!!!

See my lovely BBQed chicken legs!(I promise the black is sauce) 

Work is lovely right now, I am learning a lot!
 I love the Temple! I love the Scriptures! 
I really enjoy reading my Patriarchal blessing. 
I am excited to get married in the Temple in the future. 
Oh the blessings that will come(-Hot man all for me-*cough**cough*) + 
A family of my own( Babies!!!!)+
Time and All Eternity= All mine(Yay!)  

Where I am going to be sealed!
Isn't it beautiful!

Ok. I am done....For now>:^)

Relief Society Broadcast

Today was the General Relief Society broadcast. About an hour ago actually. It was really good. Elder Uchtdorf  used forget-me-nots in His talk. My mom asked me if I had any in my garden. I was not sure if I had any so I told her I would check when we got home. We stopped off at Panda Express after because the dinner before the broadcast was salad and baked potato's and a brownie with ice cream(I got mine without the ice cream). We left and felt hungry still. So before we had left the parking lot we made up our minds to go to Panda. It was marvelous if I do say so myself. When we got home I checked to see if the little blue flowers I had in my garden were forget-me-nots. They are! I am happy to know what kind of flower the little guys are:) I saw them bloom but I didn't know what they were until now. Here is the picture I took of them.

I had to hold them because of the wind. It was dark but I was still able to get a picture.  

I do not remember if I had blogged about my change of hair color and style. I bleached my hair then a couple of weeks after I cut it( Yes, I did it myself!). Here is the picture I took a few days later after I curled it!

It is a "sexy V shape" from what Krista said on the tutorial. You can find it here.
I love her hair I just have to say. :)

I made my Crepe Apple Crumble again! This one was really yummy:)

So I made this recipe myself. I heard of a Crepe Cake from a blog that I follow. It was In a post from a while ago but I thought to myself "hmm, maybe I can make something like it. The Crepe Cake Has  a frosting like filling between the Crepes. I really want to make a Crepe Cake with a frosting like the one from the blog. That would be yummy to try.

Ooh I bought three new movies! I got Pride and Prejudice, Music of the Heart and The Village. The Village came in a Triple pack with Signs and The Sixth Sense. I am excited to watch all of them! Ooh and I got the latest  Mary Jane's Farm and Martha Stewart magazine's! I love Mary Jane's Farm! It is such a good magazine. It is really helpful and full of gardening and cooking tips. 

So I think that this is all for my blog post today.

Have a happy sabbath!

Oops. I forgot about my blog........ for a month.

So I realized that I have not blogged since the week after my birthday. I know. I suck at keeping up. But, I have a really good excuse! I got a job!!!! Woohoo!! It is at a family friends Dental office. I love it!! I get really nervous when I am in the ops but I say a little prayer to help me stay calm and get through it. I have been taking X-rays and I am getting way better each day. I didn't take x-rays in the office that I interned in.(I was way to slow for them D: )

This past week was a lot of fun. My family and I went dirt biking and then cliff jumping! Uncle Don and his wife came along for the fun! It was really fun getting to cliff jump. The water was a little cold at first but after a while of jumping in and running back up to the rocks your body heat rises. We went to Mel's for dinner after. I didn't like my food after I had eaten it. I was felling nasty and sick all night:(.

I ran a mile on Tuesday! I had not run in over a month. I am a bad runner. I really want to get back into it but just can't motivate myself to get up and run. I hate running in the morning. Hate it. Maybe that is why I never end up going for a run. Because it is too hot in the afternoon and at night.

I made a bouquet with the flowers that are left from my garden. Almost all the Pansy's are done for the year. The Snapdragons are not fully bloomed. and all the others have been done for a little over a month now. I loved the bouquet! It turned out so well:) See!

Ya it is small, but it turned out really good for its size!

I BBQ'd some bacon. Lets just say that the top rack was made for things that will disappear when placed on the hot grill. One piece lasted though. It was yummy! After the bacon I grilled some steak, chicken and chicken apple sausage. Was so good, I didn't burn it too! It was epic! I always would burn the steak. :( This time it was perfect.
Yes, I know. The man's grill is never to be used by a woman. But, I like to bend the rules a bit when it comes to cooking. >:)

Ooh I went shopping and got three new tops, an under shirt and some long leggings for running. Oh and I got this really yummy body wash too! So good.

So that is all I can think of for now.

A long post....very long.

Ok, I have lacked getting on here to post about my last few weeks. Not good, I know. So here is a little run down of the past few weeks just to get you all started. I met an awesome guy at church a few weeks ago! I had an awesome birthday. I loved the YSA conference. I have the best cousin ever! I love the Rocklin YSA ward. I finally got a job. I really want to learn as much as I can before I get married. I am excited for winter. I want to do a TON of crafts for winter and for family and friends. I love my garden! Photo shoot with my little sis(Finally!) -Breath.- Here we go!

So the Sunday before my last post I met an awesome guy! He was such a gentleman! He is strong too! I found out when I shook his hand. Yep, very strong. As I walked to the door to leave 10 minutes later I heard him say from behind me "Let me get that for you"(the door that is) And for some dumb reason I jumped to the door first and opened it for myself. Lame right! Then as he was still holding the door open I kinda said  "Oops, next time" then giggled:(. I feel like such a loser for that! I should have let the door close and walked through the door which he was still holding open for me! Ah so lame, I feel awful! I am never going to get married to anyone if I have a repeat of that. He was so sweet and Jumped to the door to open it for me and I didn't even think twice:(. So ya lame. He came to FHE. Ya, he has a very lovely laugh...just saying.

My birthday was awesome! I woke up had my little sister tell me happy birthday and give me my gifts to start the day off. I got a tube pillow that has rainbow zebra/cheetah print fabric. I also got a lanyard for my keys, it has a pretty blue polka dot shoe on the cord base. I also got a huge bottle of Olive Oil from my dad and some cliff bars. I know what you're thinking! Olive Oil? Yes. Because I Love to cook! as previously mentioned in earlier posts. Me and my parent's went to Elephant bar for dinner where we got Calamari and salad for dinner. I got a special treat for desert. A blueberry apple crumble. All I have to say is that I might have to work at elephant bar to get that amazing recipe. It was so yummy! After dinner we picked up my older sister to go to a wedding reception(Yes, another reception). It was fun! The reception took place in the bride's parent's back yard. I loved all the flowers! So many beautiful flowers all around. The cake was good. There was a lot of fruit. Yummy fruit too! The bride's dress was very pretty. It was fun. Then we headed back home to celebrate my big day with my family. My sister's made me a red velvet cake! It was yummy but didn't have a lot of chocolate in it. It was still good though. To end my day I watched Brian Regan and some other comedians to have a little laugh. I was up till past 12 laughing my head off. My mother didn't enjoy the loud laughing that was coming from down the stairs. So I tried my best to keep quiet( that didn't last long). Then my dad came home from grocery shopping so I helped then went to my room to get ready for bed. After about 20 minutes of listening to my ipod, I turned it off and five minutes later a spider wanted to commit suicide in my room by dive bombing me in my almost sleep. I swat it off my arm to the floor. It landed in the magazines that were on the floor. I sadly didn't find it till a couple of days later-squished between Victoria and Oxygen magazine. Church the next day was fun! A good lesson in Relief Society.

The YSA conference was a lot of fun! I really enjoyed it. There was a service activity on Saturday which I did with some other girls. We tied quilts! I loved it! I stabbed my fingers so many times. They didn't really bug me until I got myself in the thumb. Ouch. This guy asked me out on Friday and I am pretty sure I only said yes to be nice:( I need to be less nice with certain things. Like dating. Don't say yes just to be nice. Ever!!! After the movies on Friday a bunch of people went to Mels. I had fun. We took up two whole corners( the waitress asked  the couple that was sitting on one side of the booth to move for us. I was tricky being around all the milk shakes. I so wanted to just grab one a inhale it. I had not had ice cream in a while so I was ready to steal from someone. It's ok now. I am over the ice cream. The YSA's that were at Mels are so funny! I haven't laughed so much from friends being random in a while. It was nice to be around people who have the same standards as me! The fireside on Sunday was really funny! Well the speakers were. The really awesome guy was there. He was standing right by me talking to a guy and I didn't even say Hi. I kinda chickened out a bit that night. Stupid nerves:(

My amazing cousin bought me/ my mother/ my sister a Cricket! I keep messing around with it. It is a lot of fun and I can't wait to get more cartridges for it! I guessed before she gave it to me that it was one. Don't believe me? Ask my Mother! She will tell you I am not lying. The night she gave it to me, we hung out looking at different blogs for wedding ideas. It was a lot of fun even if we didn't really talk. I love my cousin! Like A Lot!!! :)

I have been attending my cousins YSA ward for almost a year now( next week will be one year). I love it! I have made so many amazing people and gained so many superb friends. It is awesome! the leaders are awesome and so are the YSA's that go. It is fun to go to the same ward as my cousin and scout out our perfect Nephi's(Prince charming's). I really enjoy the ward. And I am not going to lie, there are some REALLY handsome men in that ward! Ya, a lot of them.

We have known a family since we moved here to California from Utah and the Father of the family is a Dentist. He offered me a job. And oh how excited I was when I read the message. It isn't full time but  it is still working. I will get as many hours as I need to get my RDA. I am so Excited! I start on Monday morning. Woo hoo! Finally a job in a Dental office. And a office that I know will be fun to work in! So ya, I am really happy right now.

So for schooling I am going to take one class at the local college just to do something with my time outside of work. While I work and take my class I want to learn as much as I possibly can at home. I will pick a subject for the week and read all about it. I want to do this to help me keep learning before marriage and little ones come into the picture. I am excited to start learning more!(Nerd? Yes!)

I love winter. Why you may ask? Let me tell you of a few things that make me love Winter. Snow. Christmas trees. Family. Soup. Gifts(for myself and others). The cold weather. Long sleeve shirts. Blankets. Hot chocolate(Of course!). Rain. Serving others. Last but very much not least. The Saviors birth. I love everything about winter but I love being able to celebrate the saviors birth. Teaching and learning all about My Savior! Who doesn't love Christmas. Ooh and I love singing Christmas songs!

So, I love crafts! Like almost as much as I love my garden and my hair! Making things with my hands is so much fun and I really enjoy being productive like that. I want to make little crafts for everyone! I love sewing so I think I might end up with a ton of Christmas and winter pillows, blankets, table runners and whatever else I can think of.

My sister and I did a little photo shoot yesterday. I was like 10 minutes long. I loved it. We dressed up into dresses and did hair and makeup. After the shoot I messed around with one of my pictures on Gimp 2. It turned out pretty awesome if I do say so myself. Here it is. I just messed with the brightness and contrast.

My California Fusia bloomed yesterday! I love it! So pretty and I cant wait till it gets bigger. I love my garden.:)

So to end my really long blog post I will inform you that I am really enjoying my life right now. I hope you all are enjoying yours as much as I am!

P.S. I am going to go cook something for desert!

Thursday, July 28, 2011


So a couple of days ago I made some biscuits. I have to say....... they were awesome!!!  Here they are.

Aren't they just the cutest things ever!! They were so yummy too! A little honey and some vegan butter, oh yes:)
They are so easy and quick to make. Really simple too. I am glad I have another recipe to add to my cookbook!

I follow this blog called Eye it Try it. It is awesome! Pure homemade healthy goodness. You can find it here
I made the  CCCCP. It is a cookie pie. I won't suggest it for people who don't like healthy food. It has chickpeas in it, like a lot of them (2 cans worth.) It was really yummy to me. I have a taste for natural and healthy food and apparently not a lot of people do. If you do. Try the CCCCP. If you don't, don't waste your money or time. My little sisters didn't like it(except the chocolate chips, which they picked out). Surprisingly though, my little brother did, but then again he will eat anything you put in front of him. This is what My CCCCP looked like fresh out of the oven.

Looks good right? Maybe only to some of you. Its all good though. I loved it! I need to make a cake. I haven't made one in forever(like two months)! I want to make a cake that is healthier than what I normally make. I can't wait to cook more food from the blog. I really want to eat way better than I normally do. I have a love for pesto right now. I love that green goodness to death at the moment. If you haven't had it I recommend you try it! I want to make some at home. Like a really big batch of it. I love food! Like way to much. If i didn't exercise, I would be a hippo. A hungry hungry hippo.>:) I guess it is not that bad to love food. Right? I mean, everything gets eaten. Its food so it shouldn't be that bad to love. Hmm. 

Any who..... I love my garden! I love life! I love The Church! I love The Mormon Tabernacle Choir! I love to do crafts! I love to exercise! I love my family! I love my friends! I love everything! No matter how bad life gets, it will always get better. Why you ask? Because I am a Daughter of God and there is a plan set up for me and all my family and friends and all the people I have never met and will probably never meet. I will be sealed to the Man I love for time and all eternity. I will have people to spend forever with. I will be the happiest ever after this life. So no matter how bad it gets here, I know my happiness with be ten fold in the next life. I am a Daughter of God and I am happy with my life.

So my Galiolous bloomed this week!

They have the most beautiful color for a flower! I love them. My Mexican Day Lily should bloom in the next couple of days. It just might fully bloom tomorrow! It Is the yellow one in the front of the picture. I love my garden:)

So, there was a fire on our street today. Our street raps around and the house that caught fire was at the end off the street behind my little brothers friends house. We all thought it was their house but it thankfully was not. Sadly it was the house of a retired couple who had one of their children with their family living with them. The car they were driving a little before the fire happened was starting to over heat so they went home and parked it in the garage where it exploded after being home for a while! The fire cause the two rooms about the garage and attic and then the kitchen. We walked over to the house and offered to help them get supplies that they would need for the next little while. A lot of the other neighbors are going to help out too! I am so glad that the family was able to get out of the house and get to safety.

I am so happy with my hair right now. It is getting so long!:) I love my hair, not as much as I love my garden, but ya...I love my hair:)

So I didn't go to my interview that I had talked about before. The morning of, I got a call from a member of our ward and she wanted to know if I would like a job as a full time nanny. First off, the job that the interview was for was part time and would give me from 5 to 40 hours a week. So they would have to be busy for me to get good hours. Second, the job would only happen if I was lucky(there were about 300 other people who I was going up against). So I prayed about it to find out what I should do. I ended up saying yes to the nanny job and cancelled the interview. So now I have a job and I start in august!! I am so excited:)!!! I have some time to do whatever before I start so I have been as productive as I can be for the last couple of days. I am one very happy person right now.

P.S. My birthday is in 8 days!!! The big 1-9. My last year as a "Teen":)

My garden. (And other things)

So about three days ago my first Rain Lily bloomed!!! I didn't even see it until I had watered a bunch of my other flowers. Here it is!!

So I am really exited to have more flowers in my little collection of bulbs and seed plants!!
I cant wait until my Gladiolus' bloom! I believe that they will bloom either tomorrow or the next day.My neighbor gave me some bulbs and flower seeds and a plant! I got 2 different lilly plant seeds Martagon Hybrids in red and orange with brown spots. A Spider plant, a  bunch of Crocosmia bulbs that had some blooms already on them, three onion bulbs(non-edible) that will have a purple flower that should bloom sometime at the end of Summer or the beginning of Fall, He also gave me a plant that I forgot the name of. I am so excited to see my garden expand! I Love flowers so much. I think I will take flower seeds and bulbs over a diamond ring:) My marigolds came back in one part of the container they are in! I am happy to know they are back. I hope my Lilly of the Valley will grow next year. It didn't grow this year but I am not going to give up hope for it(It could grow next year if I take care of it right. Right?)    

I have a job interview tomorrow afternoon!!! I really REALLY hope I get the job!:) I would be going back and forth between two positions at the store. I really need a job so I am hoping and praying I will get it! Wish me luck:)

I went to two wedding receptions this past weekend. They were for a friend and my cousin. One was set up in a really big room with the whole space decorated and the second was in a small space but was really well decorated. They were so pretty and lovely. I loved them both. The first was really decked out and the second was more simple and had very little to it,  but they were both so beautiful!! I am going to be going to another reception this weekend and the theme is A Summer Picnic. I am excited to see what it will be like. The grooms mother was telling us about how little they did for the reception. The week after that Is my birthday!!! The big 19!! My last year as a "Teen." I cant believe I will be twenty next year!! Scary stuff right there! :o

I forgot to blog about my Vintage Yellow Velvet Cake. It was supposed to be Red Velvet but we had no red food colouring. Here is the batter and the finished product (in cupcake version).

 It was so yummy. I loved the colour!( Yes, I spell colour funny!:) I got it from my Canadian mommy!) The yellow was so pretty. I used the whole bottle to get it that colour! My family couldn't wait to have one! Cake never lasts in my house. Especially homemade cake from scratch!:) It was delicious! 

So I have never been on a date before and I have 12 days to hurry up and go on a date before my 19th. I would like to have been on a date before then but I highly doubt I will go out before then. If I can't go out before my B-day this year I REALLY hope that I will at least by the end of this year! I don't want to hit 20 and still be able to say that I have never been on a date. That would be very awful. I got my first kiss this year. (It sucked. No... the guy sucked!!!--They both sucked--. I am pretty sure he just wanted to make out with me) When I found out that all he wanted to do was kiss me I practically ran away as fast as I could! I went straight to the temple and made up my mind to NEVER allow that to happen ever again!! He treated me like crap and I will never ever fall for something like that again. I will never allow someone to have such disrespect for me again and I will not lower my standards for an immature guy... EVER! The worst part is he said he was going to ask me out... but never did! I was like " Wow you have the gall to kiss me but don't have the courage to ask me out on a date?? What is this world coming to??!! Are girls never going to get married? I want to be a mommy but can't if all the guys are immature like this! Where are all the perfect guys hiding?? I need to scout them out for me and my girls friends. Then we wouldn't have to worry about the whole dating sucky guys thing! Ah, the world would be such a better place if we didn't have disrespectful immature guys around. So enough of my going on and on about what I think about guys of the world.

I am going to start my running tomorrow morning!! I think I will just jump straight to three miles a morning. I want to run at least 4 1/2 by my B-day. So I have to start soon if I want it to happen.

    Sarahboo <3

P.S. Sorry for all the blog shouting. I had to vent for once ( I never really do vent to people, so ya :] ) 

Saturday, July 16, 2011


I kinda really hate being out late because I tend to start acting all weird and I can become really rude and not realize it till someone points it out. So I don't want tot be out late anymore. I will be the one who stays home when there are late parties, because I don't like this whole two faced person thing that happens late at night. It's really not fun to have someone point out something like that when there are a bunch of people watching. So....ya.

Happy Day!

So my dad fixed the backyard fence and had a lot of extra fence boards left over and said that I could make a compost bin with them. Today I made the bin. It has no top or bottom. It has awesome little handles on 2 sides for lifting it when you need to turn the compost. I was all sweaty after I finished but I was way to happy to have a compost bin to care about being sweaty. So excited to have it!

                                                                             Here it is!

It is so cool! It is made from red wood fence boards. Took like 30 minutes to build from scratch. I added the bags of fruit and veggie scraps to it and cant wait to see them turn to compost for the family garden we are going to start!

I decided I NEED to get back into running. I have to keep myself going before I turn into a lazy butt. I love to run and one day would like to run the Boston Marathon. I think that would be grand. My aunt Nancy has run it a couple of times. I want to also do the Tough Mudder. I think that those would be the best long term goals for my running plan. I will start with some local runs then work my way up the running ladder.

I got some Ginger and a Spaghetti squash from the store along with some flavored tofu to start incorporating into my diet. I really want to eat better. Less meat and sugar and no more store bought crap or fast food( I rarely eat fast food though:) ) If I am going to be running I NEED to eat better! I need to know how to cook better for me and my future family, I don't want chubby kids(chubby babies are ok though:D )

My Future part 2!

So I decided that I am not going to get a real degree through a school. In my last year as a high school student I had the opportunity to attend 49er R.O.P. for Dental Assisting. I graduated from the school and loved it. It was the best thing for me to do! I have yet to find a job with an office though. I am going to do some serious job hunting this month. I want to work off my last hours to get my RDA. I need to take my coronal polish class then I can take the RDA exam. I want to work for my RDAEF2 which is a Registered Dental Assistant Extended Functions level 2. That is the highest level one can get as a Dental Assistant. I want to get my RDAEF2 because if I go to dental school for Hygiene and I end up not liking it I will have to pay for DA schooling again because while I was in school there was a rule passed that said that anyone can't be a DA and a DH at the same time anymore. So I don't want to go to school to be a DH and then end up not liking it and having spent 30k on schooling and then have to pay to be an DA again and waste time of my life on something I don't want to be. So I am done with my schooling at a college for right now.

My future!! (So far)

So I had been thinking about moving out of my parents place for the past two months but didn't know where to go or how to do it. I also changed my major from Dental Hygiene to Nutrition. I decided the best place to go for it would be BYU or some other school in utah. So I am planning on leaving sometime in August. Hopefully I will get a job here for the time being or just babysit a lot till I leave. I really hope this will work out for me! My Facebook buddies have been really supportive of my decision since I announced it today. I have a very good friend who wants to leave for UT the same month as me. He hopes to be able to get into BYU too! We want to try to leave here at the same time. I need to get my parents on board for this. They don't really think I will be able to get in or even pay for it! It's hard to hear my parents say something like that, especially when they are always telling me to go for what I want. So it is really weird and hard to try when you don't have support from your own family. I am really exited to leave. Start my life on my own. See what Heavenly Father has planned for me out there:) Maybe marriage? Babies?!?! Haha whatever happens works for me:) BYU. Hopefully my new school. Utah. My birth land. Money. Something I don't really have right now. Time. I got my whole life ahead of me. Might as well start it in Utah, at BYU, where I can learn about me and this amazing life that I have been so blessed with.

Ah. So I am finally going to post about what has been going on in life. Its been a few weeks since I last posted so I thought it would be right to post now. Its the end of the my second to last week of school. I finished my last speech for my public speaking class on thursday and had my second exam in sociology that day too! It was so much fun to finish my last speech. About half way through the speech I realized that this was it, my last speech in the class. It was awesome cause I read a lot from my first four speeches but for this last one I barley read any of it. It was more of a reference while I was speaking. I finished then was like, "Woah, I'm done!" It was intense!! I loved the class. I kinda want to do more speeches:) In sociology my teacher had 5 activities that we were supposed to attend then write papers on. All of the activities were either overlapping with the classes I had or they were inappropriate so I didn't go to them. I lost 25 points in the class because I didn't do them. The down side was that in the class there were only 100 points, and I am pretty darn sure that I didn't do so well on the exams so I think I might walk away with a D in the class:( Kinda sad. If so I will have to take the class again( I need C's or better for my major) My aerobics class has really helped me with getting back into running. I am able to run 2 miles straight now! I ran for 19 minutes straight. It was amazing that I could run for that long. Just my body. No electricity. No engine. Just me, myself and I:) And that was at 12 o'clock in the afternoon, when it was hot outside. I really want to see if I can run the full three mile loop around our neighborhood after I finish this post. It's really cool/cold outside so I think I might. At least try it on for size:) I want to be able to run at least 5 miles by my birthday at the end of July! I hope I will be able to get to 4 1/2 if not 5. I want to run a half marathon next year. I think that would be a lot of fun to do:) So I am looking for a job as a DA right now. I hope to find one before the summer starts. I need a job really badly:( Um, lets see what else is going on. Ooh I organized my closet and I REALLY love it!! It's so nice and clean:D I want to be able to play my guitar better by the end of summer. I want to be able to play the piano a lot better by Christmas. I want to go on a date before my 19th b-day! Yes it's true, I have never been on a real date before! I know right? It's so lame!! I have been on a fake date for a game with some friends. We changed dates every ten or fifteen minutes. It was fun, but still not a real date. Um, well I am being summoned to help my dad so I have to finish this post. Live & let live!

Love,   Sarah:)

So about 20 minutes ago, I decided to just up and go run a mile. It was really random and a stretch considering I have never run a mile straight in my life. So I quickly changed into my capris and runners and left for a run. I was so determined to run the whole mile that I set marks along the way. I made it all the way to the 1/2 mile mark, then realized how far I had run without really thinking anything about it. I had run a half a mile in a little over 6 minutes and I didn't know if I would be able to run the rest, but, I did! I saw the hill where my run would end and was so happy I had to just stop for a sec once I got to the top, not to catch my breath, but to realize that I just ran a full mile!! I haven't ran in over a year and I was able to just put on my shoes and go! I feel So Alive!! I hope I will be able to run more this week. It was a blast!!

XOXO Sarah

So yesterday while I was cooking dinner, I had to cut up two onions for the soup. I started to get a little teary eyed, then I got this brilliant idea to sit down at the same level as the onions. Crazy? No. It was the best thing ever!!! My eyes were not bugged by the onions at all! I thought this would be the best thing to post on my blog so whoever reads can do the same while cutting their onions.

So the onions were for this really yummy triple tomato soup.
Sadly we only had Italian stewed tomatoes and no regular canned tomatoes so the soup kinda tasted like pasta sauce but it was still really yummy.
I also made some french bread to go with the soup. Best homemade bread ever! After dinner we had some homemade Danish puffs. If you have never had a Danish puff before, I recommend trying one. They are really good, kinda like a cookie with a doughnut on top.

On tuesday for our fhe we made a movie. There were three groups. I was in number one. Each group had to film a certain act for the movie, act 1, 2 or 3. The fun part about it was that each act had the same characters but different people playing them. It was a lot of fun and really random. I was the mom of Eli and my scene in our act was me/mom getting kidnapped. I was talking about how awesome my son was while walking around the parking lot when a stranger asked me for some help. After I said yes, BAM!! I was knocked out and in the back of his car. The last scene for me was texting my son help. It wasn't really planned out what I was going to say so when the camera started rolling it was improv from then on. It was really fun just messing around for a random movie that we made in fhe. We are going to watch the movie next week. It's going to be fun!

My first long speech in Public Speaking is in two weeks. My topic is The history of dirt bike racing. I just have to talk about the basics, so I don't loose my audience from speaking about things they don't understand.

Next week is my first exam in Sociology! Yay! Hopefully I will be able to get a good grade on that, to start off the rest of the exams for the semester.

I am really having a good time in instatute. I love the random/funny/weird/cute guys/men that are in my class. They are all so happy and always have something fun or spiritual to say in class.

I hope you all are having a good week!!

My year so far.

So, because I haven't blogged since the beginning of January and its now the end of February I might as well tell you all what has happened so far this year.

-I got almost all of the classes I wanted for school.
-I am taking Public Speaking, Sociology, Aerobics, Weight Training and a D&C Institute class.
-I am really enjoying my classes, they are fun. Also, I am really lucky have a Priesthood holder in almost all of them!!
-I applied for a job, but didn't get it. That's ok, I will look somewhere else.
-I had my first speech in public speaking. I was a little nervous, but was ok in the end.
-I applied for my very own checking and savings account!! I am a big girl now:)

-I went to Lake Tahoe for the Presidents day break with my family. We were invited to go to my awesome cousins cabin with them. It was a lot of fun and really cool to be able to spend a weekend with my cousins.

-I went to church while in Tahoe. It was a really good experience to be able to go to a Spanish/English  branch.
-My awesome cousin and aunt took me and my sister shopping. It was a blast!
-I met a bunch of really cute guys/men at school and church and they are all RMs. Some of them are the    coolest dudes around.
I- have become really close to my cousin in the past two months. Which I am really grateful for.

So this is my year so least what I can remember right now.

New year:)

So I really want to start blogging about my schooling and all the random little things that are going on in my life. That is why I started this blog. To let my friends and family in on what I am up too. So far I am getting ready for the new school semester. I really enjoyed this past semester and I loved the winter break. I am hoping to find a nice job before the semester starts so I will be able to help pay for a car and whatever else might pop up down the road. 

This is my blog. 

A place for my thoughts and interests. Where this fresh new year will be documented, and hopefully many more.

I have a feeling this year is going to be good, really good
