Feliz Dia De Las Madres

Happy Mother's Day MOMMY! I love you.

My Mom is amazing. I adore her. She is my best friend and I want to be like her when (or if) I am a mom!

Top Ten (think Letterman) Things I like about my mom: (Thanks Kristie! haha)

10. Sense of Humor: My mom can really make me laugh. One day ask me about William Wallace the talking goat!

9. Confidence: My mom makes me feel like I can accomplish anything and everything. She doesn't want me to hold back... and instills that feeling of confidence every girl needs to make it in this world!

8. Disneyland: My mom has a real appreciation for Disneyland. She isn't afraid to run down Main Street U.S.A. with me and really act like a kid. I love that about her!

7. Family: My mom doesn't let anything get in between her family. She let's us know that we are her everything.

6. Fights: My mom fights the fight. She can find the strength to turn around from the world and not allow Satan to pull her down.

5. Experience: My mom has experience in life, she leads us but also allows us to learn by trial and error.

4. Loves: My mom loves us. She loves me. She isn't afraid to let me know she loves me. She stops at nothing to give me what I need... whether it be love, time, help, a friend, discipline, etc.

3. Gardening: My mom has an appreciation for the earth and what she can cultivate from what the Lord has given her. She shows us provident living and allows us to assist her in that.

2. Beauty: My mom is beautiful. Inside AND out! Self Explanatory!

1. Christ: My mom loves the Savior. She understands the Atonement and can better prepare us to know how to come unto Christ. Throughtout her callings I have watched her grow and continue to learn more of the Gospel and in return teach US more about the gospel.

Happy Mother's Day to my mom, and all the other mom's out there!

I am proud of you mom!

You made it through another year!

You just keep getting stronger!

There's an old oak tree... we can swing and sway. Lock arms and lay.

Busy... always busy! You know what I am saying? I keep putting items on my "honey to do list". Since I don't have my own Honey to do my list, it's not getting done. Oh look, I made a funny.

You would never believe that Hair School would produce homework... to do at home... but it does! It's not the "trim my doll head at home" kind of homework either! I am learning all about skin & nail disorders & diseases! (gross, right?Trust me I know).
I love my teacher, Ms. Kaye. She is hilarious! This lady has done SO many wonderful things with her life! Currently, aside from teaching us beauty schoolers, she volunteers to cut hair for hospice patients. Growing up she traveled as a ballet dancer around Europe and studied in New York. We connect on the performance AND hair level. Ms Kaye is inspiring!

This weekend I went with some friends (Kiara, Mike, Tyler, Zach, Camry and Amerae) to the Mae concert at the Clubhouse in Tempe. Mae performed with scent, visual stimulation and of course MUSIC! I forgot how much I enjoy their vocals! Mae's keyboardist is my hero. Seeing him last night made me swoon. After the concert we went to IHOP. It reminded me of High School. I am pretty sure that was the last time I had been to IHOP was High School. Conversation was light and fun. Company was enjoyable. It was great to spend time with old friends that I don't always get a chance to catch up with. Mike would agree that it was the most fun I have had in quite some time. I haven't stayed out that late in a very long time! It was refreshing. :) I didn't get any pictures... silly me.

I need some change to my daily/weekly routine. You'd be suprised at how mundane my life has become. (aside from the concert attendance... it pretty much is work, school, work, school, couple hours of sleep, school and etc.) If you have any ideas... please throw them out there! I would greatly appreciate it. It doesn't have to be life changing, it can be a simple thing that keeps your own life new and interesting. Thank you, thank you!

... oh and the picture up top... every post seems better with a picture... no relation to blog itself...
