The Good Life

Welp, most of you know I am back in Tennessee. Adjusting to being back home hasn't been the easiest thing for me. Part of it is because I feel like I am starting over again and part of it is because I never imagined my life turning out like this. The irony of life may never stop surprising me. If I gave examples this blog would turn into a pity party...and that is not why I am writing this blog. The purpose behind this blog is to give you an update. I have had some higher moments since I've been home. The garden at home provided me with the opportunity to shuck corn with my dad and pick green beans with my nephew. I have also had to opportunity to go on a few dates which have been fun. Recently, I also got to operate a zero turn lawn mower. Scariest experience of my life!!!! I thought I was going to die. I guess the point of this blog is that I should probably focus on the positive and good experiences that I have in my day to day life and find ways to laugh...even when life doesn't go my way. Because let's be often does life go our way?

To the Fashion World

This is just a quick vent to those who design clothes and jewelry.

I love clothes and REAL jewelry. What girl doesn't? And while my taste may not be the best, I would still like to be able to dress and accessorize myself without assistance. So, may I just say that I hate how you make some jewelry impossible to clasp (necklaces and bracelets) and some dresses harder to zip due to zipper location. I cannot see the clasp of a necklace as I put it on and I cannot reach to pull up a zipper that goes all the way up my back without a struggle. So, please remember when you are designing dresses and accessories that not every girl has someone who can help her get dressed. But if you are wondering...I was able to dress myself yesterday without a struggle and look just took me a while longer to get my dress zipped and my necklace and bracelet to clasp.

Things I'll Miss

Welp, I am officially back home in Tennessee. That's right, I moved back in with the parentals. I am so excited to be back home but there are some things I will miss about Idaho. Here they are:

1) The great friends I made at college (Shane, Sven, Mike, Megs...)
2) Getting my tires rotated for free (Les Schwab)
3) Tillamook cheese and ice cream
4) Zoi Greek Yogurt
5) Winco's bulk section
6) Sarah's Candy Cottage (candy and employees)
7) Having a temple so close (literally right outside my apartment)
8) Going to class (Yes, I miss that too!)
9) Jamba Juice

But Tennessee is great! It is where my family is. I am excited to make more memories in the state I grew up in.

It's Britney!

I love Britney Spears and this past week I flew to Tacoma, Washington to see her in concert. The concert was amazing. I got to go with one of my best friends in the whole world, Mike. I don't think I can have a bad time when we are together no matter what. He really is so much fun to hang out with. One of the best things about the concert was crowd watching. There were so many trashy people there and homosexuals there. I even took a picture with one! Enjoy the pics!

Me, one of Mike's friend, and a random guy.
