California, you were good to me.

Dear Bloggers,
It's been a while, forgive me? Get ready for a recap of the last couple of weeks! Two weeks ago I went to California with Ray, Ames, and Savannah girl. We stayed at my grandma's in Laguna Niguel. It was so much fun! It was so nice to get away from Provo for the time being. The weather was incredible. Warm with a nice ocean breeze. Sounds like heaven right? It was. Ready to hear a neat experience?

On Saturday morning, we had planned to go to the Newport Beach Temple do to baptisms. They told us to come in anytime before 8:30. So my Alarm goes, I turn it off, and fall back asleep. Typical haha. So we are rushing to get there on time and I call the temple and ask them to please let us in, that we're almost there and the temple worker turns us away. I explained that we were from Provo but it wasn't good enough. We were 8 minutes late. Bummer. So my mom calls to see how it went and I told her the story, (my mom, having worked in the temple before thought that it was wrong). She called the temple, and told the Matron what happend and she was very upset when she heard we were turned away. The next day, in the Saddleback Singles Ward, we hear news that the Temple is now open till 9:30! Isn't that great?? The phone call my mother made was meant to be. Anywho, we go back to the temple on tuesday right before heading home and it was amazing! We got to talk to the Matron afterwards and she was so friendly! It was such a great experience. God works in mysterious ways.

After we got home, I've mainly just been working. Speaking of which, I'm almost done! My last day is July 30th. Crazy. But I really am excited. I want to be able to spend more time with friends and family before I go/get more things for college/pack. You know what I'm saying? :)
Thanks girls! So much fun :)


You've been on my mind

This week I survived 5 days of work! I worked 5 out of 6 days we are open. (well technically it was 4.5 shifts, not 5, but I was working for 5 days so I for sure counted it). Forgive me if I seem to be complaining. It's not that I don't like work, I just feel like I work so much. Goodbye summer? June's already gone! crazy. Maybe I've just been there too long and need something new to see? I've only got about 5 weeks left, I'll  hang in there :) and besides, my co-workers are so great! I would not be able to endure those long days and nights without them. So to you I say THANK YOU! :)

I secretly wish there was more time. I feel that every thing is slipping out of my grip too fast. I move out in 7 weeks. SEVEN WEEKS. That's crazy folks. There's so much I need to do! There's so many things I want to do before I leave. Summer, please don't go so fast. I love you and want to enjoy you!

On a better note...4 days till CALIFORNIA! Oh heavens I can't wait. It will be so nice to get away. I've been dying for a vacation. Beach here we come! I can't wait to live in my swim suit for 4 days straight. yeahhh!

My dear friend Emily is teaching me how to budget! I'm so excited! I hope I can get it down good and be good at budgeting. Because let's be honest...Where does that money go?

Do you love Sundays as much as I do? They're so amazing. The Gospel is true! I'm loving my new ward. The Bishop is pretty great and so are the youth. "Fear God more than man." and, "Change is possible to anyone if you do it with Faith." Heavenly Father answer our prayers! He cares so much for us, it's incredible. Don't give up! He's always there for us. I'm so grateful for my Savior. What a perfect example. Thank YOU.

Happy 4th of July errrybody!
