Anywhoo...some very amusing things have been taking place at work lately. I went in to talk to the lawyer I work for about some things and ended up walking out with dating advice. (What can I say, I work for a Stake President!) Now how many people can say that? Yeah, I was talking to my boss about work and paralegal's jobs and ended up getting told I need to flirt more, especially with my eyes. That I'm to pretty of a girl with so much going for me that I shouldn't be single. I'm just going to take that as a compliment...ha ha I was laughing about that conversation for the rest of the day! Then today, my manager walked out of his office and commented on how "feisty" everyone was today. (Just so you know, besides the 4 lawyers, I work with two men, the manager and another legal assistant. The rest of us are woman, about 15 in total and today all the drama hit the fan! Rather amusing for me to sit back and watch...) Anyway, my manager then continued to explain why he thinks everyone was acting this way. He said "it's pretty much all women here and they work together daily and when women are around other women all the time they end up with their "cycles" being the same." I immediately started laughing and asked, "So basically you think everyone here is pms'ing at the same time?" His epic response: "Well yeah, what other reason could there be?" Like there could be no other reason for everything happening. Priceless.
Besides that, not much has been happening in my life besides my allergies coming in full force and bringing along a cold for company! Not loving it, but I have so much Benadryl in my system I'm surprised it is safe for me to operate a moving vehicle!...Yeah sad joke...what can I say, I'm sick :)

All in all the concert was amazing and I am so glad I got to go! Hunter even walked out and said that he thought it was an awesome concert and she is very talented! No lie. Thank you Hunter for agreeing to go with me so that I was able to experience my very FIRST concert!!
There she is!! I'll admit it, I screamed along with all the little girls. And I'm proud of it! My voice was basically gone by the end of the night, I was cracking, sounding like a man and everything :)
Traffic driving to the concert was insane...and we almost got in an accident with this picture because the driver was watching me and not the road...
Reason for Fanny Pack: I needed something to carry my wallet, keys, and camera in and there was no way I wanted to carry my purse. Solution: Fanny Pack =D

Anywhoo, it was a very fun, not restful, and informative trip! I am happy to be returning to the Y in January (yes the cuties are a huge part) but I am very sad to be leaving my Mesa. I am and forever will be a Mesa brat and will be returning here someday and will hopefully raise my family here...whenever I get one! First I need a man...anyone out there know anyone single feel free to set me up! Yes I seriously just did that, and meant it! Let me know.
Beginning of the decorations...
There is more being added...The finished cake! I am very proud of completing it! It took 4.5 hours and our prize for winning in the contest was a small 1 inch plastic gold medal with a ribbon to small to fit over your head! Oh yeah, be jealous. You may now marvel and the wonderfulness that is this cake.

We have arrived!Very first ride of the day! It was so sweet! And my mother said, and I quote, "I almost wet myself!!" I about died laughing.We went on this ride second, I thought it was smart doing it early so we could dry off during the day. Bad idea, especially when you are wearing jeans and a white t-shirt!The end result, at least from our necks up!My obsession with the windmills finally documented!! Every time we drive this area I just stare out the window thinking how cool these things are and this time I finally took pictures!! Quite a few actually....
Well there is just a taste of what we did while we were in Cali. It was such an awesome trip and I am so thankful that my parents took me! It is definitely something I will never forget =)

At the beginning of July we had a family reunion, first time in 5 years all of my family has been together! Of course we had to do family pictures, no way my mom wouldn't let us. During this reunion my parents, J, ZB, HY, Mini-E, AF, and his girlfriend Minders went to my grandparents cabin for two days. (Teacher, myself, JJ, and Big Sis couldn't go cause we all had to work) When they got back JJ and Big Sis got into town and then we went to Wicked at Gammage on Thurs.(as awesome the 2nd time as the 1st...if not better!) and then Friday was family picture time/birthday celebrations! By the time pictures were done, the kids were very ready to be done and go home and eat. Here are a few of the pictures taken.

From the classic "What a Girl Wants" is just plain gorgeous and very much underrated in my opinion. He is can sing, fairly good actor, and a British accent to boot!
It's true that he really is only famous because he is dating Julianne Hough, but dang is this man attractive! Julianne did good with him :)
The original Mr. Darcy need I say more.
Not going to lie, first time I saw him didn't find him attractive at all. In "Ten Thing I Hate About You" there is just something about it that has the total OMG Factor going on!
Gossip Girl, gorgeous, drool worthy, Footloose lead. End of discussion.
Yes, I know he is still just a baby but a girl can dream can't she! He is making me want to become a Team Jacob fan...something I never thought I would say! Don't worry girls I am, and forever will be, devoted to Edward but man is Taylor a temptation!
Even though I am slighty in overload with all the news that come out about the man daily I can't deny he is very attractive when he is NOT all dirty and greasy looking! Does anyone else notice that in 99% of his pictures he has his hands in his hair...
Wasn't a huge fan of Zac Efron really till HSM3 and then when I saw 17 Again I was hooked. Especially now that he got his haircut and no longer looks like a girl. This man is A-mazing even if he is dating Vanessa Hudgens. No ones perfect.
I am completely in love with this man. If I were to ever meet him I just might attack him! He is simply phenomenal in "Supernatural" and hilarious as well. Fighting demons, or making fun of his "baby brother" Jensen can do no wrong! At least in my world...
Update: To all of those wondering, I obviously did not get the part of Leah for Eclipse. No suprise there but it was definitely a fun experience! If I can ever get the video to upload I will do it so you can all see it!
P.S. I don't know why it is not doing all the fonts the same, I have them the same when composing it but once I publish it, it goes all wonky. (yes I seriously just said wonky, move on)

Leah Clearwater - (Female - Age 19) is a Quileute Indian and
the only female member of the La Push wolf pack. She is tall
and slender with beautiful skin and short cropped black hair.
She would be considered gorgeous if not for the perpetual
scowl she carries due to a broken heart and her anger issues.
She is the daughter of Harry and Sue Clearwater and the
protective older sister of Seth. [Age 18-22 to play 19]
I fit the roll perfectly don't I? Ha ha. Anywho, I went to CC's house to get help with my audition cause she is an amazing actress and she also read the lines with me while recording it :) It has been such a fun experience and I know there is a one in a million chance that I will get it but I'm so glad I tried at least! :D I got to spend time with my best friend, come out of my shell a little bit, and I even think I have a little bit of talent for acting that I never knew I had. As a little "treat" I'm going to post the clip I sent in for my audition. It is a scene from the 4th book Breaking Dawn where Leah joins Jacob's pack. Tell me what you think!
Ok it is not letting me upload the video so I'm going to do a couple things and try again. But I thought I would still post all this information cause it has just been sitting in the edit area for so long!

I am a Twilight addict. Simple as that. The other day I was on a Twilight blog where I followed a link to another blog where I followed another link to a separate site and there I found something very exciting!! All I will say about it right now is it has to do with the movie Eclipse...when I get it all finished I will tell you all about it. And if your lucky I might even post a video!
This was my favorite picture, very Charlie's Angels don't you think? ;) Anywhoo...that was a fun trip and then I got to come home to reality!
Right now it is monsoon season here in the Valley of the Sun. The temperatures haven't been too bad till this last week where they shot up again and it got pretty hot, only to have the clouds come rolling in and cool it down again. I must say for June it has been really cool. I was hoping for some rain this week, cause I LOVE rain, but we didn't get any :( We did get some sprinkling in some areas but that's it. Tonight though I went outside with Buddy to just sit and watch our sprinklers and enjoy the cool weather when I saw this and just had to get a picture of it.
The beautiful sunsets of Mesa, AZ. I love AZ for many reasons and this is one of them. The beauty down here is just breathtaking. It is a little piece of heaven for me. It may be "hot" but to me this is HOME, this is where I was born and raised. This is where my family is. This is where I grew up and got my bumps and bruises. This is where I was baptized. This is where I gained my testimony of my Savior Jesus Christ. This is where I did all my lower education. This is where I learned to be the woman I am striving to be today. And this will be where I get married. This place is where all the IMPORTANT events of my life have taken place. That to me proves that this is my home. I am extremely bless in my life.
