For a LONG time now, Ryan and I have been debating whether we are able to afford sending me back to school. I decided against USU after my first year there and I've never looked back (i hated it). I've thought about dental assisting, photography, and cosmetology and gone back and forth on my top choices out of those three for a about a year now, but it always comes down to cosmetology. I've wanted to do that for years now, and I'm excited to tell you all that I start at New Horizons Beauty College on June 9! YAY! that day can't come soon enough!!!!

Really? No takers. Fine, I guess that's what I'm off to do.

spiritual saturday

Today my family came up to Logan to visit Ryan and I and see our place...but mostly to go to the temple. We all get together about once every 3 or four months to have a temple day together. It's so special to be able to go with my whole family. So far we've been to the Ogden, Salt Lake, and now Logan Temples, next on our list is the Bountiful. Afterwards we all went out for a FEAST at Fire House Pizzeria, it was delicious, we ordered way to much food, but it was oh so delicious! We had such a fun day and can' wait to do it again!

this weekend Ryan and I went to his family cabin in Pine, ID. It was so nice and relaxing and fun! We didn't do a thing...well i didn't at least, Ryan attempted his homework a couple of times. We ate delicious food, got in the hot tub a couple of times each day, watched movies, took naps, slept in, the river runs out back, so you could hear it running, while looking at the stars, in the hot tub each night, it doesn't get much better than that!...what can i say, it was great! And leave it to me to forget the camera (although there wasn't much to take pictures of as you can tell by what we did...nothing). I don't like posting about things with out pictures, so i searched "Pine, ID" on google and low and behold, there weren't too many options to pick from, but this is what I did find, I think it's in Pine? But even if it isn't, this is pretty much what it looked like! It was so pretty up there!

something cool.

since the first date ryan and i went on, we've had to adjust our seating arrangements due to him being a lefty. Poor guy, everything in our world is catered to us right-handed people, and the lefty's just have to make due with it. Well tonight Ryan was REALLY excited to show me what he found today at the bookstore...a LEFTY notebook!!! It's actually really cool, the spiral is on the opposite side so it isn't awkward to write and take notes anymore for him. Its pretty awesome, and it's definately recieved the "something cool" award for the week here at our house...even if it is only Monday!

My Grandpa read this to my family on Christmas Eve, and my mom printed me out a copy. I thought it was really amazing, and really humbling. One of my resolutions this year is to be more humble and to be more appreciative of what i have and not be so greedy. So I thought I'd share this with all of you too...

"If we could string the earth's population to a village of 100 people, there would be:
57 Asians
21 Europeans
14 Westerners
8 African
52 females
48 males
70 non-whites
30 whites
70 non-Christians
30 Christians
6 people would have 59% of the wealth, and all 6 of them would be from the U.S.A.
80 would live in horrible housing
70 would be unable to read
50 would suffer from malnutrition
Only 1 would have a college education
Only 1 would have a computer

If you have food in your fridge, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep...you're richer than 75% of the world.
If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million who will die this week from sickness.
If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and change in your car, you are in the top 8% of the world's wealthy.
If you can attend a church meeting without fear of arrest, torture, or death, you are more blessed than 3 billion people in the world.
If you have never experienced danger of war, the loneliness of prison, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation, you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.
If you can hold someone's hand, hug them, or even touch them on the shoulder, you are blessed because there is love in your life."

the doghouse

this is hilarious! Luckily Ryan has never been here...and hopefully this will teach him how to never have to be there!
