Caught Up In Your Smile

Again, so busy:

-Bin Laden died. I kinda forgot to mention that in my last post, it's kinda a big deal to me.

-Job hunting and interviewing (can't I just PRETTY PLEASE win the Lotto one day........hm, maybe I should start playing first....yeeeaaahh)

-FINALLY saw Toy Story 3

-Loving DVR. Recording, rewinding, fast-forwarding. Why did my family not acquire this when it first came out.

-Going through desks, drawers, closets and boxes of stuff. Old cards, pictures, etc etc. All the things I keep for no reason because I don't have the heart to throw it away yet, or ever for some.

-Mother's Day/Mother's Day family dinner at Grandma's [HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY MOM! Don't worry, I said it on time in real life too]

-Yard work, it's never ending and has now included my Grandma's house. And I really really enjoyed mowing our lawn> good thing we don't have a massive front yard on a steep hill...oh wait we do haha

-Reading Post Secret. Just 3 of the recent ones I've liked:

-Waiting all day to see Taylor Swifts "Mean" video only to be disappointed, it was only okay. (I didn't really like Back To December either). I want her to do Better Than Revenge, and I want it to be kick a-

-Watching my shows that all have their finales next week or only 2 episodes left and dying at the promo trailers for them. Especially Castle and Bones. Ohemmgeeeeee!!!! ahhhh

Guys, I know I've been super busy and stuff, chill out, I'll get back to blogging regularly soon. I just have SO many important things to get done. (please note the sarcasm..well I mean I do have so important things :P )

Oh, I forgot one:

-Listening to this song over and over by Lady Antebellum (Christina Perri's Jar of Hearts, too)



lyin’ here with you so close to me
it’s hard to fight these feelings when it feels so hard to breathe

caught up in this moment
caught up in your smile

i’ve never opened up to anyone
so hard to hold back when i’m holding you in my arms
we don’t need to rush this
let’s just take this slow

just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
just a touch in the fire
burning so bright
and i don’t want to mess this thing up
i don’t want to push too far
just a shot in the dark that you just might
be the one i’ve been waiting for my whole life

so
baby i’m alright, with just a kiss goodnight

i know that if we give this a little time
it will only bring us closer to the love we wanna find
it’s never felt so real, no it’s never felt so right

just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
just a touch in the fire burning so bright
and i don’t want to mess this thing up
i don’t want to push too far
just a shot in the dark that you just might
be the one i’ve been waiting for my whole life
so baby i’m alright, with just a kiss goodnight
no i don’t want to say goodnight
i know it’s time to leave, but you’ll be in my dreams
tonight
tonight
tonight

just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
just a touch in the fire burning so bright
and i don’t want to mess this thing up
i don’t want to push too far
just a shot in the dark that you just might
be the one i’ve been waiting for my whole life
so baby i’m alright, oh, let’s do this right, with just a kiss goodnight
with a kiss goodnight
kiss goodnight

We Just Like The Alliteration

I have GROSSLY neglected my blogging duties. My apologies. I've been a tad busy though. I had many, many things to do:

-take finals
-pack
-clean my apartment
-move out of my apartment
-take my cousin to the ER the morning we were leaving for a 14 hour drive for the first day of our 3 day trip (see below)
-drive across the country
-do a ton of yard work for my mom
-watch the Royal Wedding (lets be real, I loved it)
-unpack (still working on that)
-job hunt (another ongoing task)
-go to Charlottesville and Baltimore for Northwestern and UConn women lacrosse games to surprise my old friends from high school who play for them (best. weekend. ever.)

So, I've been a little preoccupied.
BUT this is what I wrote whilst tearing down the highway::

After the end of a long semester and when finals are finally finished you are fried, and yet you still have to pack, load cars and trucks, clean out and clean your apartments. So at 3 in the morning, when all these conditions are met, everything is much funnier than it should be.


When Chelsie, Courtney and I are loading Chelsie’s car at 3 am so full that she can barely get in it to drive and we’re all so tired-everything was hilarious.


So, when Chelsie said I should write a blog all about her we laughed, but then I said, “but really, I am now.” So, here it is, my blog all about Chelsie.


  1. Her neon ‘Whompin Wombats’ t-shirt she would wear most Friday’s to go play frisbee and soccer is one of the coolest t-shirts I’ve seen (and I have around 100 t’s myself).
  2. “Frisbee Friday” even though we played ultimate and soccer, we just like the alliteration. Chelsie is responsible for setting that up and I literally planned my whole week around it and looked forward to it every Friday afternoon this year. And I’m already looking forward to my first Friday back in P-Rowdy in the fall so I can play it again with everyone.
  3. “Oh my heck!” Okay, this is a mostly Idaho thing (which makes sense that Chelsie says it...she’s form ID). It cracks me up, I don’t know why, it’s just funny.
  4. Chelsie makes some of the best cookies….ever.
  5. She’s in Cougar United. So she has all the cool Cougar United shirts, jackets, sweats, etc. So that’s really cool in itself, but then that also reminds me about it so I get my ID scanned more often which means I get more free BYU gear. Which, lets be real, is why I go to college [jk but it’s still a huge deal].
  6. Her apartment fed me dinner on more than one occasion.
  7. Her TV was pretty big and if we watched movies over there (which we did a lot) we’d most likely get cookies (see #3) or chips & salsa or something.
  8. She likes to DO things. Like go to sports games and play tennis and ride bikes (though no one else had bikes, poor Chelsie and how did like no one else have bikes? It’s Provo and we’re Mormon. hehe)
  9. Chelsie thinks I am really funny...or at least laughs really hard at everything I say. So that makes me love her even more.
  10. She, herself, is pretty dang funny and always fun to hang around. She’s pretty awesome.


So anyway-this is why we’re friends. I write this as I sit in the passenger seat of my car as Marian is driving at this point. I hope this efficiently embarrasses [but in a good way] Chelsie as it was my main goal haha. The glare makes it kinda hard to see, sooo I’m wrapping this up, now.
