Happy Fathers Day to the best dad!

I just wanted to hope my dad a happy fathers day!  I am convinced I have the best dad in the world.  He is the greatest man.  I haven't seen him in a couple months, so I can easily say I have never been so excited to see him as I am now!  There is so much I want to tell him, I don't even know where to begin.  So all I will say is I love you dad!  Whoever I marry has some big shoes to fill!  No matter what, I always know that you will be there for me.  Thank you for everything you do!  Love you dad!

My Bike! And little Ali's engaged!

Ali looked out the window, and this is what she saw!
The little love birds
No, the basket was not included, but it comes in handy!  Even if it was made for a 5 year old...

On our way to Utah lake

Mom, this post is for you!  For my birthday this year, which isn't till June 22nd, all I have wanted is a bike.  So, my sweetheart mom let me pick out my present a little early so I could enjoy it for longer.  So I convinced my friends that they needed one too, and it has been so much fun!  By far the best birthday gift I could ask for!  Riding down the Provo trail has become our new favorite hobby!  And yes, we all 3 got matching yellow ones at Target (only 90 dollars so go get one!)  Mom keeps asking to see the beauty, so here it is!  And of course, I have to put up a few pictures of Ali's engagement.  I still cannot believe one of my best friends will soon be married!  

Spring is Here : )

Driving to a house out in Alpine to play volleyball, sit by the fire, and watch a movie on the projector with my roomies!

Yes, me Kristin and Garrett killed the other team.
Cute Shelby who is getting married Aug. 1st!

I cannot say enough how much I am loving Spring term up here!  The weather is absolutely perfect, everyone is more social, and school is much easier.  We go on lots of runs, bike rides, picnics, swims, and pretty much anything outside.  Sunday we had a fun little barbecue at a park down the street and had tons of fun eating and playing football.  Utah may struggle in the winter, but it is one of the most beautiful places this time of year!  So everyone, come visit me!  Trust me, its lots nicer that AZ right now!

Happy Mothers Day!

So I just wanted to give a little shout out to my mom today!  I'm sad I couldn't be there to celebrate!  But I have the best mom in the world!  I'm not kidding, I really do.  She does so much, and I know she's always there for me.  If I'm crying, she's the one I call.  If I'm extremely happy, she is the one who I call to tell everything.  If I need advice, she is always there.  My mom is always supporting me and trusting me in my decisions.  Not to mention, she keeps the cleanest house around and cooks better than anyone!  It has never been a question if my mom thought of our family as a priority.  I could go on and on, but I just want her to know how grateful I am for her, and how much I love her.  She has taught me everything I know, and I hope my kids will be able to feel the same way towards me as I feel towards her.  She is the greatest!  So thanks mom, love you!

Happy Birthday Ang!

Todays my big sister Angie's birthday, so I just wanted to give her a little shout out!  She's the greatest sister and mom!  I watch how incredible she is with her little girls, and hope that I can be close to that good someday!  And Ang is always great for providing me with a good laugh.  But anyways, I hope you have such a great day!

Conference weekend!

I almost forgot to put these up!  But a couple weekends ago, my parents came up for a little visit.  We had so much fun, and I love having them up here every conference!  Thank you mom and dad for everything!  And just look at my mom.  Isn't she just gorgeous?

Easter and the start of the Birthdays!

I know, we are a little bit weird.  But doesn't it look like Katie is holding us all up?
My roomies!  Kristin, Brooke, Courtney, and me

Easter Sunday

oh Amy
I know, I know I haven't updated in years.  But since we have taken tons of pictures lately, I decided I should probably make a little post.  It's finally starting to feel like Spring here in Provo!  I'm getting really excited for Spring and Summer.  But anyways, here are a few pictures from Brooke's birthday and Easter.  It seems like all my friends birthdays are in April, so there will be lots more pictures to come!

Happy Birthday Shan!

So I just got home from a little super bowl party, and decided I wanted to give my big sister Shannon a little birthday shout out!  She is the one who always does posts for each of our birthdays, so now its her turn.  Shannon is the greatest sister I could ask for.  In the past few years, we have grown really close and you would never know there was a 12 year gap between us.  She is an incredible mother and example, and I hope I can become more like her!  Thank you shan for everything you do!  And especially thanks for putting up with me tagging along all these years!  Love you and hope you had such a great day!
