Hippie-ish

I LOVE this shirt. I wasn't sure about it at first when I bought it, but after plenty of approval from friends, I got it and I now I just love it 10 times more. I just like how loose it is with the kimono sleeves and pretty flower design. Ha I kinda felt like a hippy in it too. :)

I'm such a Fashionista ;)

So I started another blog (don't worry, I'll still be updating this one regularly)! One of my goals for this school year is to wear a different outfit every school day and make sure it's super cute ha. So I made a blog to record my progress! I would love for you to check it out because I'll be posting every day. Click this link to go to it:


In other news..school started today! This semester I'm taking 12.5 credits..but don't let the numbers fool you--I'm gonna be reading and writing SO much! Weirdly enough, I'm already a Senior (18 years old and a Senior in college, probably the youngest Senior at BYU haha) so I'm really getting into my major classes. I'm taking 4 english classes (2 of which are 300-level!) for my major and one jazz dance class for fun, because dance is such a huge love in my life. :) Today I had Modern American Usage, Later British Authors-with a focus on Jane Austen and Henry James, and Early British Literary History.

Haha, yep I'm an English nerd, because I'm super excited for all of these classes! They will be a lot of work, especially with reading and writing. I wasn't too excited for Early Brit Lit at first because it's not literature I'm interested in and it's just a required class, but I really like the teacher because she said a lot of people don't want to take that class so she tries to make it fun by giving us a lot of options for writing assignments, letting us work in groups, and doing fun stuff (like coloring in class and possibly going on a fieldtrip to see a Shakespeare play!). It will be a hands on class so now I'm super excited! Tomorrow I have Creative Writing and Jazz Dance. I'm even more excited for those classes! Tuesdays and Thursdays will for sure be my fun days. So wish me luck for the rest of the semester. I hope I do well!! :)

First Day of School!

Yay, today was my first day of classes for my second year at BYU! I am so excited for all my classes. It'll be lots of reading and writing, but lots of fun. :) And just I loved my first day of school outfit. I got like 5 compliments on it! :)

Molly Mormon

For anyone who isn't LDS, they probably wouldn't get the title of this. But in my church we call a girl who follows all the rules or is like a "goody two-shoes" type a "Molly Mormon." And with my cardigan, dress, and flats, I felt like a total Molly Mormon today. ;) But I liked it so oh well haha. Also..I think I need to find a different place to take pictures than my room. I'll work on that. :)
Cardigan: J. Crew (thrifted)
Dress: Oneill (thrifted)

PROVO...again

Well...I'm here again! I moved in yesterday and I'm now sitting in my new room in my new apartment. I LOVE it here! Even more so than last year. I'm living off campus now and I like it so much more. The bathroom space is huge and we have 2 showers, there is a living room actually separate from the kitchen (ya we didn't even have that last year), and my bedroom is bigger too. And not to mention the best part...more BOYS. Cuter, older, and wiser boys... ;) This year is for sure to be amazing!

I'm living in a 6 person apt right now. I knew two of my roomies, Brooke and Dani, before, and I hung out with them last night. My room roommate's name is Megan, and I've only been able to talk with her a little but she's super nice. I'm excited to room with her. My other two roommates are Jenna and Emily (they knew eachother before) and they're way funny and nice. I think we have a great group of people. I'm so excited to see what this new year brings!! :) :)

Ha this is all my stuff packed in our van...do have too much?? ;)


My new room! (well part of it)

Photo Shoot With my Sisters

So today, my sisters and I decided to go take pictures (well it was my idea, but they agreed to come haha)! So I picked out their outfits, got my dad's camera, and we were off! We just went to a few places around town but it turned out to be quite an adventure. It happened to be raining, but the rain would just come in random spurts. So whenever it started to rain again, we'd just run back to the car and drive to another place! It was great. :) But ya it was lots of fun to take all these pictures, and why wouldn't it? My sisters are BEAUTIFUL. Seriously, take a look, they're gorgeous. I think a lot of them turned out really great, especially with a little editing done. Not to brag...but I think I did a pretty swell job at photographing (oh, and the ones with all 3 of us were done on a tripod with a self timer). But don't take my word for it...look at the pictures! They say a picture is worth a thousand words... (oh ya...they're in reverse order sorry :P. And if you wanna see the rest of them, they're all on my facebook)

Dreams

To graduate from BYU with my Bachelors in English

To do some good in the world--like join the Americorps or go on a mission or even join the National Guard

To get my Masters Degree in who knows what, but I know it'll be something I love

To get married in the temple to the most amazing guy in the world

To meet Carrie Underwood

To be a mom and have kids that I will love SO much and will hopefully be ok to them

To write a book worth reading

To overcome my trials in life with faith and perseverance

To be a great family member, a wonderful friend, and an amazing person to whoever I meet in life. I want to make people happy.

To travel the world (or at least Europe)

To read lots of books, sing lots of songs, and dance lots of dances

To die knowing that I led the happiest and most wonderful life I could have led.

:)

Celebrities

My Celebrity Crush:

Taylor Lautner
I'm pretty much like every other girl in America when I say this, but who doesn't love this gorgeous hunk from Twilight?! I seriously fall in love again every time his shirt comes off. ;) So everyone else...back off! He's all mine. :)

My Favorite Actress:

Amy Adams
I loved her in Enchanted (my all time fav movie), Julie and Julia, Night at the Museum, and anything else I've seen her. She's gorgeous, funny, and humble, and I think she does a great job in whatever movie she's in.

The Celebrity I just don't get:

Miley Cyrus
This girl is so bipolar. One minute she's sweet Hannah Montana, the next she's a squawking bird in a cage keeping her clothes to a bare minimum. Miley seems so great on screen and in her music (well the old music) but off screen she's a maniac. I loved her in "The Last Song" and I don't understand why she isn't more like that all the time. Or at least a little "tamed"... People would like her a lot more.

My Favorite Child (well kinda) celebrity:
Dakota Fanning
She's been famous since 2003 when she did "Cat in the Hat" at age 9 and now has had prominent roles in the Twilight series, "Push," "Coraline," and several films to come in the near future. I love how cute she is and yet how grown up she comes across as. I don't know, I guess I've always loved Dakota Fanning and I think she's a great actress.

And of course, my most favorite celebrity over all:

Carrie Underwood!
I'm sure none of you saw this one coming. ;) But I just can't help love Carrie. She's absolutely gorgeous, has the most amazing voice, is so down to earth, and seems to be a really great person over all. I've been to 2 of her concerts, check her fan website every day, have pictures of her all over my room, and wear the concert tees pretty much every night for bed and like every week in public ha. I'm kinda one of her biggest fans probably... :) I would so love to meet her someday!!

What are your answers??? I would love to hear! Post in the comment section! :)
