What's Winter?

In case you aren't in the loop, California hasn't really had a winter season.

Its basically been nothing but sunshine and blue skies.

People aren't staying inside avoiding the snow. They are heading out to beaches, having barbecues, and catching some rays at the pool. 

A few weeks ago Taylor &I decided we would join in on the anti-winter fun & head down to one of our favorite spots, Santa Monica.

We roller bladed down the board walk, laid on the beach, held hands on the pier, and enjoyed some delicious burgers at Pier Burger.

We had so much fun.

I love my Taylor & I can't wait to for our forever <3

So, I adore the melody of this song. However, the words are far too depressing for my liking.
So, I decided to to change some of the words and dedicate this to my MGs.
I love you all .

Keep Calm & Wait On

Eight Minute Date You Just Might Hate

Behind the Scenes:


*Create your desired amount of missions 
*Be sure to include a task and a place


*Create 2 dares per mission: one for you and your date.
*Be sure to make the dares embarrassing, but not ego shattering.


*Cut out your dares and missions 
*Fold them all up
*Make sure to label your missions (if you want them done in order)
*Package your missions and dares into two separate baggies


Welcome to the Eight Minute Date You Just Might Hate. 

Here are the rules:

MISSIONS. There are (enter number) missions in the game. Each mission takes place in a different location (or not). Each mission must be completed in (desired amount of time, I said 15 minutes).
DARES. Eight minutes into the game an alarm will go off (be sure to remember to set an alarm). Each of you must stop whatever you are doing and reach into the dare bag. Read your dare out loud and complete it. YOU MUST COMPLETE IT.
*REMEMBER* Have fun and be a little adventurous. 


If you are a missionary girlfriend and don't have a boy to take on this date, take a best friend. And remember to:

Keep Calm & Wait On

he will be home soon :)

Happy New Year!

Goodbye 2013.

Hello 2014.

As I welcomed the New Year I decided I would do something a little different:
I actually made a list of goals
The New Year isn't about setting unrealistic goals and procrastinating our excellence till next year. Its about doing the best with another year God has blessed you with. So embrace the beautiful gift God has given you. 

Smile more. Judge less. Laugh at the little things. Laugh at the big things. Stress less. Pray more. Be happy with what God has given you. Stop trying to change what you can't. And learn how to change what you can.

I encourage you all to make a real list. Right. Now. 

This year I want to:

Finish the Book of Mormon twice
Read the New Testament
Complete a service project
Volunteer somewhere
Get married
Start journalism internship
Take a random class
Run weekly
Do a weekly video diary

I hope we all can accomplish our goals this year, but if not: 

Keep Calm & Wait On

there is always next year ;)
