I am too Competitive!

Last week my Relief Society had all the apartments make a cake. So one of my roommates baked that cake and that left me with the responsibility of decorating. Truth be told I wasn't really up for the task. None the less I did it! I was quite proud of myself as well. I am not the best at doing things like this so I was overwhelmed with joy when my cake turned out. If you can't tell I did a pasture with horses in it. The only thing that made me mad is they said we were having a competition and then at the end they were like, "You are all winners." I was like, "I wouldn't even have tried to decorate a cake if I would have know there wasn't really even a competition. Why can't the church have winners and losers?" Oh well, I know in my heart that I made the best cake! I guess I might have been to competitive, but if I am in a competition I won't even show mercy to the 2 year olds! I enjoy winning...but who doesn't!

My Bucket List

Well Charity and Sandra have made a bucket list so I decided to go on a post mine.
1) I want to visit every continent with the exception of Antartica.
2) I want to sky dive and scuba dive. I think it would be amazing to see my planet from up on high to seeing it below the see.
3) I want to be married in the temple and be a mom. I really do have a strong desire to have a family.
4) I would love to ride in a Corvette Convertible with the top down on a sunny day.
5) I want to make a difference in the world...I haven't figured out how I will do this one yet.
6) I want to dance with someone I love in the rain. If I'm lucky maybe I'll get to kiss them too!
7) I think it would be fun to do a picture where you just splatter paint on a canvas or pop paint filled balloons with darts.
8) I want to "play" with some exotic animal rather it be monkey, tiger, or a bear.
9) Visit the Eiffel Tower.
10) Learn how to make homemade flaky croissants.
11) Sleep in a hammock on a perfectly sunny day.
12) See a TN Vols home game. I want to get there mid week and enjoy all the festivities.
13) I know this sounds really lame but I'd really like to start doing some genealogy.
14) Have a home of my very own. Preferably a cabin in the mountains.
15) Learn how to not be so self conscience.
16) Plant a garden.
17) Make sure the people I love know that they are loved by me!
18) Go on a Disney Cruise.
19) Stay at a Bed and Breakfast.

Daddy's Girl

I must confess I forgot all about dad's birthday this past weekend and I feel quite bad about it! I believe that I have the best dad in the world. He has taught us all such valuable lessons. Dad is one of the hardest workers I know. I love getting random text from daddy. They make my day! I remember daddy would call us in his room on Sunday afternoons to have daddy-daughter talks. I don't remember what he would talk to us about or how long they lasted but I am pretty sure I enjoyed them most of the time. He always made an effort to make us kids feel loved. Dad has taught us kids many valuable lessons. Don't get me wrong, he can annoy me like no other but I always know that he has good intentions. And I hate to admit he is right a lot of the time. (Not all the time though.) I appreciate that dad wanted me to learn how to do different things and would take the time to show me how to do these different tasks. Dad taught me how to hunt, change a tire, and bbq a pig. He also woke up early for 4 years to teach me early morning seminary. I really do appreciate him doing this! Dad is an amazing man and I am blessed to have him as my Pops!
