Okay, so I have this awesome friend named Ashley, and I follow her blog. Yesterday, I was looking at it, and she had posted this amazing little video. I instantly fell in love with it, and couldn't resist but to share it! The title of this clip on youtube is actually Jessica's "Daily Affirmation". Perhaps you will wake up tomorrow morning, look in the mirror, and act out this inspiring monologue. Just watch it, and you'll see why I love it so much :) (Thanks Ash for sharing it!)

"Life is full of beauty.
Notice it. Notice the bumble bee,
the small child, and the smiling faces.
Smell the rain and feel the wind.
Live your life to the fullest potential,
and fight for your dreams."
--an Ashley Smith quote
A couple days ago, my older sister and I got sick of playing card games (Skip-bo and Wacky Sixes--Justin, those are the names of the games I was trying to remember yesterday!) because we had been playing for nearly 5 hours, so we decided to find something else to do. Guess what we did... We did a mini photo shoot! Oh my lanta, it was one of the funniest things ever! We pulled clothes from each others closets, attached different bed sheets and shower curtains to my bedroom ceiling, and then just had at it!
Yesterday, one of my friends informed me about a nice little website called Picnik where you can play around with pictures and make them all fun... for FREE! Needless to say, I spent a couple hours last night playing around on the website with some of the pictures my sister and I took. Here a just a few of them! Let me know what you think :)

Two days before my little bro left for Nauvoo, our family got family pictures!!! My mom had been wanting to get them for years and years, so it was a relief to finally get them :) The photographer was the same woman that did my (and also my sisters) graduation pictures, so it was good to see her again. Woot woot for family pictures!!!
These are just a few of the pictures :) (She took around 200 pictures!!!)

Yesterday, we sent my little brother off on his mini mission. He will be gone for 4 months to Nauvoo, where he will be playing in a band. That kid is really quite talented on the drums, other percussion instruments, the guitar, and piano; he will mainly be playing drums and guitar in Nauvoo. As we watched him go through security and out of sight, I was more excited for him than sad. But now as I sit at home, I realize that I am really going to miss my little bro! He'll have a great time though, and I'm just really happy for him and that he has this wonderful opportunity to serve the Lord and do something he loves :)

When I put make-up on, I typically work on both eyes at the same time. I'll put eye liner on one, then on the other; eye shadow on one, then on the other; mascara on one, then on the other. I don't know why, but I just had the urge this morning to put all the make-up on one eye first to make a comparison between the two. After looking at the differences between each eye, I was reminded of a magazine I looked at yesterday while getting my hair cut. There was an article that talked about natural beauty and the preferences people have on wearing make-up or not. I'm a fence sitter. Some days I just feel like going with the natural look, while most days I tend to wear make-up if I'm leaving the house.
I hope you all have a lovely Tuesday!!!
And here are some pictures of my new haircut for those of you that are interested :) It's not too different from what I had before, but I like it!

Hello lovelies :) Welcome to another beautiful Sabbath day! Despite the fact that the sun isn't shining very much here, it is a beautiful day after a night of rain.
So I have been considering starting another blog to go along with this one. It was kind of inspired by the book "Oh the Places You'll Go!" by Dr. Seuss. I was thinking that I could start a blog that mainly consists of pictures of me and all the places I go... whether it be to the piano bench in my front room, the post office, a foreign country, or to the sidewalk in front of my best friends house. There are so many places to go, and it could be fun to just keep track of all of them. I will let you know if I get that blog up and running :)
I really love the book Oh the Places You'll Go. My mom gave it to me as a graduation gift last year, and simply put, I am inspired by that little childrens book! If you have not read it, go read it!
Have a lovely Sabbath day :)

Today, my older sister is coming home from college! I have to share my room with her for a couple weeks while we paint her room, but I think we will have fun together :) She is planning on getting married over the summer, so I need to take advantage of her single days while I can! haha.
Welcome home sis :)
