to be blond or not to be blond

I have been internally debating about going back to blond. The warm weather lately has made me think of summer. Summer always reminds me of being tan, the beach, reading books, and blond hair. My question is should I go back to blond or stay a brunette?

I have decided that I am going to be more optimistic and look at the bright side of things. Here are a few great things that have happened to me this week.
1. I was able to go home and enjoy a relaxing vacation in Southern California.
2. I saw my adorable friend Sister Brianna Hobbins at work this week. It was so nice we got to talk about life and how the MTC has been so far. She is the most adorable girl ever.
3. I brought more clothes from home so my wardrobe automatically expanded without having to spend any money.
4. I have plans and have hung out with some friends that I have not seen in a while.
5. I went to the temple this week!
All of these little things have my week great so far. I am so grateful for the little things and be able to see the good in them. I am going to focus more on the little things instead of all the little problems.

Ebi Sushi!

I love sushi! My favorite sushi place is Ebi Sushi. It is on the corner of Crown Valley and Golden Lantern. You walk into a small restaurant and are greeted by an adorable couple. They make you feel like you are their favorite customers. They have a large selection of rolls. My favorites are their Laguna Roll, Crunchy Roll, and their Love Roll. I would highly recommend going. If you ever are in the mood for sushi and a friendly environment drive over to Laguna Niguel and try Ebi Sushi. You will not be disappointed.

Happy Early Birthday to ME!

My birthday is not until March First! I am turning 21! Most people go to Las Vegas and celebrate with a ton of people at a huge birthday. I cannot picture a better birthday than going to the beach and being enthralled in a good book. Yes I know I am pathetic but its the truth. My big birthday present this year is a trip home for presidents day weekend. I am getting away from the cold and going home to southern California. I cannot wait. I do not want or need much. I am just excited to relax and enjoy the weather and location of my home town.

Eating Healthy ... again!

I love eating healthy! My fridge is full of fresh fruits and veggies. My pantry has whole wheat bread, pasta and brown rice. Since coming back to school I have eaten healthy and loved it. Then about two weeks ago I heard a disturbing rumor about me. I was confronted by a friend who asked me if I had an eating disorder. Okay if you know me you know that this could not be farther from the truth. I have lost about 20 pounds over the past two years but I worked extremely hard. I was always healthy during my weight loss process. So after hearing this ridiculous rumor I started eating bad! Junk food galore! I am getting back to my old ways of eating healthy. I am excited. I have sweet potatoes, salads, chicken, brown rice, carrots, bell peppers, apples, blueberries, and so many more delicious food. I am excited to start eating healthy again! Do not worry though junk food is still part of my diet. It is just not my main food source right now! So does anybody else like eating healthy? I might even start posting my favorite healthy recipes!

(Pass by this post please! This is one of those that I use my blog for my journal entry posts!)

I am not one to get emotional. I hardly ever cry. I normally keep things to myself and show emotions in other ways. Today however I have been a basket case. For some strange reason all the things that I should have cried about for the past year it feels like have decided to come back and open the flood gates today. I think I just realized how much I have grown as a person and how much I still have to go!
I cried in relief society because I thought of my sister and when I was told that she had broken her neck and was almost paralyzed. I should have cried then but I did not. Instead I helped out by constantly going to the hospital and making sure the house was clean.
I cried because I realized how hard it was to get hurt and go home. I should have cried then or when I was in immense pain but I did not! I put on a tough face and sucked it up.
I cried because I am so grateful for my friends and then people who got me out of the house when I was home those two months. I am eternally grateful to Summer, because she allowed me to be her ball and chain when I was home. She got me off my bed and doing something when I was home. I needed that more than I can ever say. I needed a friend when I was home and she was that friend. I know that she will never realize how much that meant to me but I am so grateful. I owe her big time.
I cried because I realized that my chronic sinus infection is not getting better and I need to go back to the doctors. I cried because last time I was there they said that I might have to get surgery. I cried because I am scared.
I cried because I am so grateful for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I know that He lives and loves me. I know that everything I have been through over the past year and especially the past six months He has been through more. I know that He atoned for our sins. I am so grateful for the Atonement. I am so grateful that through Him I can return to live with Him and my Father and Heaven again.

Even though my tears are drying these feelings will never change. I will always remember how much I love my sister, and my family. I am so grateful that she is okay. I will always be happy that I went home for those two months because I got better! I will always be grateful for my friends that helped me. I will always love them. I will always be scared and want better health. I will never forget that feeling when you are told that your health is not that great. I will ALWAYS Love and be Grateful for My LORD and SAVIOR!
