Today was a typical Friday.

I went to the midnight showing of Cowboys and Aliens. It was pretty awesome, not gonna lie. They actually successfully mixed western and sci fi. I was impressed. it was very Star Wars-esque as well, which was kinda fun. Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford are believeable cowboys.

I got up just in time to go to hot dog friday (HDF) which is always great! I love my friends :) it was my last HDF I just realized.... that makes me a little bit sad. but not sad enough to make me want to keep living here. We stayed by the pool for quite a while, Tom and Taryn came to visit, it was very fun to see them.

I went back to my apartment and watched Friends with Chloe. I had forgotten how funny that show is!! oh my goodness.

I worked on my History of Creativity project which happens to be a self portrait because it was the easiest thing I could think of. AND GUESS WHAT!! someone I showed it to actually knew it was supposed to be me without me telling them! It made my day.

Then I watched some Psych with Nich. I learned that there is a pineapple in every episode, sometimes it's really hard to find. I was amazed. I guess I learn something new every day.

Then we tried to have a dance party in the parking lot but the dumb night guard came and got mad at us. I will not miss him when I move.

After our party was ruined, we watched some more Friends with more people.

And now I am here... writing a blog. yay. it's 3 in the morning. I'm going to bed. Goodnight! :)

My cousins have the cutest kids ever!

I spent the past weekend in Idaho at my Granny's house because my aunt Rachel got married. Congrats!!

Mrs. Rachel Anderson
Anyway, in my family, I'm on the younger end of the cousins so a lot of my cousins are married and have kids. I got to play with them all weekend and they were the cutest kids ever!! 6 adorable little boys... It actually made me ok with the idea that one day, in the distant future, when I'm married and settled and want to have a baby I might have a boy. Honestly, that's been one of those things that I've thought about. I grew up with 4 sisters, I wouldn't know what to do if I had a boy. I told my mom about this and she laughed at me.
But look at these kids, I'm not worried :)

seriously. They're precious and I was smiling all weekend because of them.

Today I've been thinking about my friends and how I have been so blessed with the greatest friends ever. Recently, these friends are my life. When they are happy, I am too. And when they hurt, I hurt with them.

Recently I've been dealing with the second thing. I have one friend that has been one the most trying friendships I've ever been in, but that's because I care so much for her that when she is having a difficult time, my heart goes out to her. I've been helping her with a certain problem in particular for over a year and a half now. It's like that annoying fly that is in your kitchen that you just can't get rid of and just keeps buzzing in your face... But one day it will be gone, because I'm going to do this to it:
and it's going to be GLORIOUS!! :) I'm so excited for that day. Because I know how happy she will be when that happens, and that means so much to me.

And I have another friend. I want to help him so badly but that's not exactly a possibility right now, so all that I can do is to sit back and hope that he is ok. That is not a fun feeling, at all. I want to do all that I can to make him feel better, and now I just have to wait until it's possible for me to help him and I hope that's soon because I don't like feeling helpless.

It's a weird feeling, having another person that you feel protective of and that can affect your own feelings so much. I had no idea I was such a protective person until I started having those people that I care so much about that I don't want anything negative to happen to them. I found a quote today that I love:
"God made friends so we'll carry a part of His perfect love in all our hearts."
I have started to see just how true this is as I have made more friends and gotten closer to them. I am so greatful for my friends, even in the hard times for the things that they teach me every day and for the love that they show for me in return.

Music Obsession

I love this song so much!! :)
and I really love the music video.

The Band Perry has been my latest obsession. I like this song a lot, especially because it reminds me of Anne of Green Gables, which is one of my all time favorite movies.

Another good song by them is Postcard From Paris.

I can't sleep. I don't know why. This just does not happen to me... Well I think I did fall asleep for a while but for some reason I woke back up and now I'm out on the couch with my pillow, blanket, and my computer. I don't know why I want to blog right now either. I probably don't make any sense right now. Yeah, I was definitely asleep for at least a while because I woke up to my computer (which was closed) made the start up sound and then a minute later started playing the song that I was listening to earlier this afternoon. So basically this whole thing is extremely weird. My room is really warm, that's why I moved to the couch, it was too hot.

I need a drink of water. gosh, this is a really weird post. I think my body thinks I took a nap.

Anyway, here are some pictures I took this past week:

my sisters and I went to a drive in movie last weekend :)

my friends decorated my car, they make me happy. I took pictures before I washed it off
it was on my window too haha, it would have been creepy if I didn't know exactly who it was :)
 Well... this was a weird post. I might delete it later haha we'll see. Maybe I should just not blog at 4:00 am.

Elder Taylor :)

It's my best friend Colton's 1 year mark on his mission. I have some pictures of him because he's awesome, and this is kinda my way of making me feel better about not writing to him as consistantly as I would like.
He's in Barcelona and he is absolutely loving it!
look how cute he is! "Baby Colton" to quote Bridget

Yep. That's classic Colton
 On his birthday... in February.
No, this isn't a mission picture but it's one of my favorites of him.
 I think this was when we really became friends. haha isn't he awesome?
And your guess is as good as mine as to what he was supposed to be dressed up as...

I miss you Elder Taylor! I'm going to send you a letter very soon. Keep up the good work! :)

Yesterday was my cousin Rachel's birthday. There was a little birthday party and me and Erin went. It was so much fun! I love spending time with my cousins. They are the funniest people I know, but that might just be because we have the exact same Stolworthy sense of humor. At the party it was me, Erin, Rachel, her husband Weston, Danielle, and Keith.

I love my cousins! We told stories about killing pets... and shooting other people's pets. yep. That's why my family's awesome :)

Also, my blog decided that everything I write should have a grey background... I'm trying to fix it but it's not working. Hopefully it's not a permanent mess up. I have not had much luck with blogs.

The Eternal Blessing of Marriage

I love this talk!
 Someone told me recently that I should listen to it again so I did. It reminded me how amazing it was. I absolutely love how he talks about his wife. I hope that some day I can have that much influence for good on someone...

I need to study for a test but I'm waiting for a powerpoint to download, so I'm going to blog while I wait. Anyway, yesterday was a very big day. It marks Cameron's halfway point on his mission. I am pretty excited, not gonna lie. I wanted to show a few pictures that I've gotten from him since he's left, he's been such an awesome missionary and I can't wait to see what the next year has in store for him.
It's winter there and he gets cold while studying
 With one of his favorite families he taught, he looks so happy
 haha he is so tall!
 I love this one
 Gotta love missionaries
Brazil, you better appreciate and take care of him for the next year.

Happy 1 year, Elder Rogers!! :)
