Today was an incredibly long day again. We had sooooo many family members over today! 13 Plus the additional 3 that already live in the house :p. Don't get me wrong, I loved it! But it was definitely tiring XD. Then we went to church and got to see Dan and Francina Proctor which was awesome. I love them and it was nice to see them and have dinner with them tonight. Now I've gotta get some homework done though so until tomorrow... goodnight!


Mom had the brilliant idea of posting the handle for the recliner in my room. So I did just that.

Yesterday felt like such a long day. I dropped dad off at work, then I went to work, then I went back to see dad, we went to lunch with Olivia, went back to the academy, I got changed, went to the park to play soccer for a bit with Joey and Jovanni, went to their house and got changed, headed back to school to help dad with the talent show then after the talent show went to the Rock for RFL. After RFL (ok, we left a little early...) dad and I went to In N Out and then finally, home! Phew. Long Day. I was in bed by 9 again :). I'm really liking this going to sleep early-waking up early business.


On Thursday I went to the Rock after work to volunteer in Saacuuuurity for a bit. I got to have lunch with Matthew and Ro and it was a good day all around :). They have an empty frame in the hallway at the Rock and Matthew wanted to take a picture in front of it so that's what my picture of the day is!

(You can barely tell he's wearing an orange hat)

I'm a little obsessed by this beanie to say the least...

my love :)

4 months together.


I had two tests yesterday - Economics and Anthropology. I don't mind it though because it means we get to get out of class early :). Then I came home, Matthew came over and we watched the Office (after a quick Guitar Center run).

p.s. - yes, Andy is my favorite.

I got flowers last week and I wanted to post a picture before they got all nasty, but instead of just posting a plain picture, I thought I'd have some fun with it. So - I'm holding the rose petals in my hand :). I also wanted to share this with you:

"We complain that God does not make himself present to us for the few minutes we reserve for him, but what about the twenty-three and a half hours during which God may be knocking at our door and we answer, "I am busy. I am sorry." Or when we do not answer at all because we do not even hear the knock at the door of our heart, of our mind, of our conscience, of our life. So there is a situation in which we have no right to complain of the absence of God, because we are a great deal more absent than He ever is," - Anthony Bloom

I was reading this a.m. and it really struck me. I know I'm guilty of it, and I need to work on focusing on God with constant communication. Not just when it's convenient for me. Hopefully it gets you thinking! :)

This pic is totally NOT representative of my day, but I felt led to post it none-the-less. I had an amazing day in Julian today with Matthew, the Silvas and various other family members :). We watched 7 Pounds, walked around Julian, ate dinner, ate Julian Apple Pie and watched a Bridezilla marathon XD. Twas quite an amazing day even though we got lost a little bit. Getting lost with someone you love makes it not so bad though :). Anyway, by the time we got home we were both exhausted. I took some alka seltzer because I'm not feeling too well and now I'm ready to sleeeeeeeeep. So goodnight!


this picture = frustration. I know that Olivia knows what I'm talking about. When you just finish painting your nails and they get scuffed up, or in this case, wrinkled. Yeah - that's the best idea I had for a picture :p.

I FINALLY got my hairs cut!! I can't tell you how amazing it feels to get your hair cut and get it cut right -_-. Sharaya did an awesome job and her friend Kaylee did a great job too cutting my mom's hair. All in all we are very happy campers :). So here's a semi-pic of my hair :p. As best as I could do for being indoors and with my webcam...

It's hard to tell unless I'm staring at you in direct sunlight (unlikely), but I have different colored eyes. So I decided to take a picture of both of them today :p. I kinda stole the idea from Amanda, so thanks! :D

I know I still haven't posted yesterday's picture but I shall :). In the mean time, here is a picture from today! Today was one of the best days I've had in a long time :). Matthew came over in the morning, we went to see mom and Becks for a bit, then we headed to the beach. He went out body boarding and I sat on the shore for a while, then we came home, watched the Office, went on a walk, had dinner with the fam and then got frozen yogurt. Sounds simple, but it was so incredible. I loved it :).


It was absolutely gorgeous in Southern California today! So my parents and I decided to go to the zoo. Unfortunately, the zoo was packed, so instead we went to Harbor Island and just walked around for a bit. It was really nice :). Then we went to this amazing used book store (Adam's Ave. Books)(it's one of our favs) and then got slurpees and went home. When I got home I went on a quick bike ride, watched Fired Up (HILARIOUS) and then Matthew came over for dinner. It was a pretty fantastic day :).

(I took the pic on my mom's camera and I haven't gotten the chance to upload it yet but I shall later today :))

You know, I'm kinda tired of people being so pessimistic about Valentine's Day. Most people are like "Sharing your love for someone shouldn't be just a once-a-year thing, it should be every day!" but you know what? Some people need just a day. Just one day to have to themselves and reflect on how much love not only we have for those closest to us but the love that our Savior has for us. It shouldn't always be about gifts and cards, but when you feel love for someone it's a blessing to be able to give them something that shows just a little bit how you feel. So for all of you out there that believe that Valentine's Day is a bogus holiday made for people that forget to show love every other day of the year, just remember that sometimes people need an extra reminder of the love others have for them and the love God has for them.

My green chair that I bought for 5 dollars today at a garage sale (including delivery!). I think it's safe to say that I LOVE it. Also in it is a gift from my parents for Valentine's Day :). I haven't opened it yet but I think I'll do that now. Hope you love the chair as much as I do! :p


Sorry - this is for yesterday. Oops Pic #2
One of the greatest love stories I know :)

Today's picture is one of my poster that Alexis made for me. She called me yesterday and we got to catch up and it was so nice to talk with her again! Anywho, I was looking at the poster again today and saw that it says "love" in it. I never really noticed it before, but I'm happy I did now so it can be a part of this picture series! Woo hoo :)

Can you spot the heart? :) I love southern California for the palm trees....even though they aren't native to down here :p

Ha! Isn't this bag amazing? XD Rocio gave it to me. Apparently it's from some make-up company and used to say "I <3 <3 <3 Matte" but she crossed out all of the e's and replaced them with hearts! lol I love her :)

Today I had the perfect opportunity to take a picture of love :). When I got home from school this package was waiting for me. Let's just say I had a perma-grin for the rest of the afternoon. Matthew sent me my Valentine's day card and gift and made my day/week/year/etc. :). It was amazing and I have the most perfect Valentine I could ask for. So this picture, for me represents love in the best possible way because when I got the package, I felt so loved :).

We went to church at 8.
We went to breakfast after.
We got lost in San Diego.
We came home and (I slept and he) read.
Good day :]

I was walking to my car after work today and saw this lil beauty hanging out in the tree and knew that it had to be my picture of the day :)

Productivity - total Godsend. Seriously, Focus is something that I always take for granted, except when I NEED to focus on something and just CAN'T. God blessed me with productivity today and I am sooooooo grateful for it.

Also - I got to see Matthew today, so that was a plus :)
Anyway, now for my picture! So I'm not catholic, but I've always been intrigued by the idea of the Rosary and memorizing prayers and such, so I've kind of been collecting them. I only have three so far, but I still like them very much. This one in particular is the one I got in Brazil. It's the smallest one I have but I like the significance of it and wanted it to be my picture of the day since I didn't take any pics w/ peeps :)

Little Miss Sunshine :)
See that piece of tape kinda hanging off the steering wheel? Yeah well if you touch that the wrong way then the car starts honking and it's usually in the most awkward situations. Anyway, that's why she gets the name Little Miss Sunshine :) And I love her.
