i HATE goodbyes. i dont know why they were even invented! To me the hardest part of any friendship is when it's time to say goodbye. As much as we might like things to stay the same, change is an inevitable part of life. I have a love/hate relationship with change, more so HATE. With goodbyes there is a chance you may never seen that person again & that is rather depressing.... After a while you learn the difference between holding a hand & falling in love. You begin to learn that kisses don't always mean something, promises can be broken as quickly as they are made & goodbyes really are forever!!

Did You Feel Proud ?

Did you feel proud as you walked away?
Left Me standing with everything you didn't say.
You broke it all, every last part.
Now deep inside lies my broken heart.

When you left you took my pride,
Taking my happiness with every stride.
I promised myself I wouldn't cry,
But just like us, that promise died.

I'm not pretty, I'm not thin,
I'm not confident & I never win.
Why would you want to be with someone like me?
Now all I want is to be set free.

Years have passed since that day,
With you on my mind always.
I can't think about you without shame,
I know why you left, I am to blame.

I'm not pretty, I'm not thin,
I'm not confident & I never win.
Why would you want to be with someone like me?
Now all I want is to be set free.

Free from this life & this heavy ache.
Free from the heart that you just had to break,
Before i'm gone, there's just one thing I want you to know.
I loved you with all my heart, but you made me go.

I'm not pretty, I'm not thin,
I'm not confident & I never win.
Why would you want to be with someone like me?
Now all i need is to be set free.

New Friends....

So, over the past month or longer, we (my family) have sort of adopted the Spanish speaking missionaries in Hurricane (They live right around the corner from us)There are 3 of them at the moment, Elder Davis from Washington, Elder Perez from Florida & Elder Carter from California (who is waiting on his visa to go to Mexico). The funny thing about Elder Davis is that he is from a town in Washington that a relative of mine Turk DeMille is from. Elder Davis knows & loves Turk like a grandpa. We've had them over for dinner 2 times now, but tonight they brought 2 english speaking missionaries from the west stake Elder Springer & Elder Pressgrove. It was a blast. I have never laughed so hard in my life.

Waxing.... Girls Only!

I know it is long, but it is totally worth reading!!! Guys read at your own risk..
CAUTION: This is very funny. Be prepared to laugh out loud… I laughed til I almost cried as I could just see this happening!!
All hair removal methods have tricked women with their promises of easy, painless removal—The epilady, scissors, razors, nair & now…. the wax!
My night began as any other normal weeknight. Come home, fix dinner, play with the kids. I then had the thought that would ring painfully in my mind for the next few hours:
“Maybe I should pull the waxing kit out of the medicine cabinet.” So I headed to the site of my demise: The Bathroom!
It was one of those “cold wax” kits. No melting a clump of hot wax, you just rub the strips together in your hand, they get warm & you peel them apart & press them to your leg (or wherever else) & you peel the hair right off… No muss, no fuss. How hard can it be? I mean, I’m not a genius, but I am mechanically inclined enough to figure this out. (ya think?)
So I pull one of the thin strips out. It’s two strips facing each other, stuck together. Instead of rubbing them together, my genius kicks in so I get out the hair dryer & heat it to 100 degrees. (Cold wax, yeah right!) I lay the strip across my thigh. Hold the skin around it tight & pull. It works!! Ok, so it wasn’t the best feeling, but it wasn’t too bad. I can do this! Hair removal no longer eludes me! I am She-rah, fighter of all wayward body hair & maker of smooth skin extraordinaire!
With my next wax strip I move north. After checking on the kids, I sneak back into the bathroom, for the ultimate hair fighting championship. I drop my panties & place one foot on the toilet. Using the same procedure, I apply the one strip across the right side of my bikini line, covering the right half of my *hoo-hoo* & stretching down to the inside of my butt cheek. (Yes, it was a long strip) I inhale deeply & brace myself…RRRIIPP!!!
I’m blind!! Blinded from pain!! OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! Vision returning, I notice that I’ve only managed to pull off half the strip. CRAP!! Another deep breath & RRRIIPP! Everything is swirly & spotted. I think I may pass out… must stay conscious… do I hear crashing drums?? Breathe, breathe... Ok, back to normal!
I want to see my trophy—a wax covered strip, the one that has caused me so much pain, with my hairy pelt sticking to it. I want to revel in the glory that is my triumph over body hair. I hold up the strip! There’s no hair on it. Where is the hair?!? WHERE IS THE WAX???
Slowly I ease my head down, foot still perched on the toilet. I see the hair. The hair that should be on the strip. I touch. I am touching wax.
Crap! I run my fingers over the most sensitive part of my body, which is now covered in cold wax & matted hair.
Then I make the next BIG mistake… remember my foot is still propped up on the toilet? I know I need to do something. So I put my foot down.
DARN!!!! I hear the slamming of a cell door. *Hoo-hoo* ? Sealed shut! Butt?? Sealed shut!
I penguin walk around the bathroom trying to figure out what to do & think to myself, “Please don’t let me get the urge to poop. My head may pop off!” What can I do to melt the wax? Hot water!! Hot water melts wax!!
I’ll run the hottest water I can stand into the bathtub, get in, immerse the wax-covered bits & the wax should melt & I can gently wipe it off, right?? WRONG!!!
I get in the tub—the water is slightly hotter than that used to torture prisoners of war or sterilize surgical equipment—I sit.
Now, the only thing worse than having your nether regions glued together is having them glued together & then glued to the bottom of the tub… in scalding hot water. Which, by the way, doesn’t melt cold wax?
So, now I’m stuck in the bottom of the tub as though I had cement-epoxied myself to the porcelain!!
God bless the man who had convinced me a few months ago to have a phone put in the bathroom!!!
I call my friend, thinking surely she has waxed before & has some secret of how to get me undone. It’s a very good conversation starter—“So, my butt & who-ha are glued together to the bottom of the tub!”
There is a slight pause. She doesn’t know any secret tricks for removal but she does try to hide her laughter from me. She wants to know exactly where the wax is located, “Are we talking cheeks or who-ha?
She’s laughing out loud by now… I can hear her. I give her the rundown & she suggests I call the number on the side of the box. YEAH, RIGHT!!!! I should be the joke of someone else’s night!
While we go through various solutions. I resort to scraping the wax off with a razor. Nothing feels better then to have your girlie goodies covered in hot wax, glued shut, stuck to the tub, in super hot water, & then dry-shaving the sticky wax off!!
By now the brain is not working, dignity has taken a major hike & I’m pretty sure I’m going to need Post-Traumatic Stress counseling for this event.
My friend is still talking with me when I finally see my saving grace… the lotion they give you to remove the excess wax. What do I really have to lose at this point? I rub some on & OH MY GOODNESS!!!
The scream probably woke the kids & scared the dickens out of my friend.
It’s sooo painful, but I really don’t care. IT WORKS!!! It works!! I get a hearty congratulation from my friend & she hangs up!
I successfully removed the remainder of the wax & then notice to my grief & despair… THE HAIR IS STILL THERE….ALL OF IT!!!!!!!
So I recklessly shave it off. Heck, I’m numb by now. Nothing hurts. I could have amputated my own leg at this point!
Next week I’m going to try hair color…. Now that’s funny!!! NOT!!!!

Evil Dog

My pretty chill run turned into a run from hell! I was running up this hill about 7 blocks from my house when i looked up & saw this boxer/pit bull-mix (meanest looking dog ever). I am not scared of dogs but when i saw this one break away from his metal chain that was keeping him tied up. I stopped dead in my tracks about 50 meters away from this dog & just stared at him. He just stood there growling & stared straight back at me. I had a feeling that i needed to turn around & get out of there as quick as i could so i begin to walk down the hill & get away from him. Before i knew it this dog began to chase after m. I had no where to go! To my right was a house with a small front lawn nothing else, to my left was a big open field, a few trees & a bob-wire fence surrounding the field. I, being scared to death, walked briskly to the nearest tree & wrapped my arms around it as i whipped out my phone & pressed the speed dial to call my house & then i began to pray that someone would answer & that this dog would not attack me. Within 2 seconds this dog was not even 5 inches away from me growling & barking. He began banging into my leg with his mouth/head over & over again. I felt wet on my leg & thought to myself, i'm gonna get bit! Each time he hit into my leg harder & harder, my heart stopped because i was sure he was gonna bite me. I didn't dare jump over the fence into the field because i knew he would follow right behind me & probably attack me, so i just stood next to this tree trying to fight back the tears. Luckily after a few rings my mom answered, i was only able to spit out, "Come get me, i'm at 180W & 1300S" My mom heard the terror in my voice & then heard the growling. Within 30 seconds my sisters pulled up in their car & the dog took off running. I'm sure if they would have been even 30 seconds longer that dog would have ripped me to shreds. I have never been so scared in my life, i swear my heart was beating over 200 beats per minute & i was shaking like an old lady.
I am just glad to be home safe & away from that dog! Now if only i could stop shaking & my heart could beat normal again!!

Up North

So, skyler had a mission reunion up in Draper yesterday, so i agreed to go up with him, so he didn't have to go alone.(haha plus my best friend lives like 30 minutes from there & i wanted to see her!!) Before Sky went to the Draper Temple & i headed off to play with my bestest friend Marie, we met up with my cousin Brooke in Draper to give her a baby gift, & saw her new cute little girl Marley. Here is a picture i took of her yesterday. What a little chunk! She is a very cute, good baby, with perfect blue eyes.

Marie picked me up from the temple & we headed to IKEA!! My new favorite store. I wish i could live there! :) I especially want this picture, for $149 dollars. Its about 5 1/2- 6 feet tall. I had Marie stand by it so you could see how big it really was. Now i've gotta save my moneys so i can purchase it!

One day i WILL go to Paris, France & i WILL visit the Eiffel Tower & take a picture with it!
Keep checking back for more pictures purchases & words from the rest of my trip up there!! Trust me what you just read is only a small amount of what all happened from friday at 10 am til today at 2:30.

"Always" Maxi Pads

This post is gonna be long. but i promise if you read all the way to the end you will be glad you did!! its hilarious:

This is an "actual letter" from an Austin , Texas woman sent to Proctor and Gamble regarding one of their feminine products. She really gets rolling after the first paragraph. This was PC Magazine's 2009 Editors' Choice award-winner for the best letter sent via e-mail.

Dear Mr. Thatcher,
I have been a loyal user of your 'Always' maxi pads for over 20 years and I appreciate many of their features. Why, without the LeakGuard Core or Dri-Weave absorbency, I'd probably never go horseback riding or salsa dancing, and I'd certainly steer clear of running up and down the beach in tight, white shorts.

But my favorite feature has to be your revolutionary Flexi-Wings. Kudos on being the only company smart enough to realize how crucial it is that maxi pads be aerodynamic I can't tell you how safe and secure I feel each month knowing there's a little F-16 in my pants.

Have you ever had a menstrual period, Mr. Thatcher? I'm guessing you haven't. Well, my time of the month is starting right now. As I type, I can already feel hormonal forces violently surging through my body. Just a few minutes from now, my body will adjust and I'll be transformed into what my husband likes to call 'an inbred hillbilly with knife skills.' Isn't the human body amazing?

As Brand Manager in the Feminine-Hygiene Division, you've no doubt seen quite a bit of research on what exactly happens during your customer's monthly visits from 'Aunt Flo'. Therefore, you must know about the bloating, puffiness, and cramping we endure, and about our intense mood swings, crying jags, and out-of-control behavior. You surely realize it's a tough time for most women.

The point is, sir, you of all people must realize that America is just crawling with homicidal maniacs in Capri pants... Which brings me to the reason for my letter. Last month, while in the throes of cramping so painful I wanted to reach inside my body and yank out my uterus, I opened an Always maxi-pad, and there, printed on the adhesive backing, were these words: 'Have a Happy Period.'

Are you freakin kidding me? What I mean is, does any part of your tiny middle-manager brain really think happiness - actual smiling, laughing happiness, is possible during a menstrual period? Did anything mentioned above sound the least bit pleasurable? Well, did it, James? FYI, unless you're some kind of sick S&M freak, there will never be anything 'happy' about a day in which you have to jack yourself up on Motrin and Kahlua and lock yourself in your house just so you don't march down to the local Walgreen's armed with a hunting rifle and a sketchy plan to end your life in a blaze of glory.

For the love of Pete, pull your head out, man! If you have to slap a moronic message on a maxi pad, wouldn't it make more sense to say something that's actually pertinent, like 'Put down the Hammer' or 'Vehicular Manslaughter is Wrong'.

Sir, please inform your Accounting Department that, effective immediately, there will be an $8 drop in monthly profits, for I have chosen to take my maxi-pad business elsewhere. And though I will certainly miss your Flex-Wings, I will not for one minute miss your brand of condescending bull crap. And that's a promise I will keep.

BYU...All i can say right now is... i am a pretty disappointed with the way you played today... or the way you didn't play! I couldn't even finish watching you it was so bad! I hope you do better next week.

My thoughts & prayers go out to all who lost loved ones 9 years ago! They will never be forgotten! GOD BLESS AMERICA! Good patriotic song "America" By: Imagine Dragons
& on a happier note, i found this quote this morning & it made me laugh so freakin' loud:
It has been scientifically proven that any woman can be satisfied with only 3 ½ inches—& it doesn’t matter if it is Visa or MasterCard…

So i know i should be excited for the weekend to get here cuz of our big Annual Leavitt Family Reunion on Kolob but I can honestly say after everything going on right now i am NOT excited for our reunion this year, & dont want to go. I'd rather stay home alone, & i'd rather be here in hurricane for Peach Days. In my 20 years of life i can only remember attending Peach Days 1 time for sure, maybe 2 times max. I think it's time to change that number & attend Peach Days every year..

There is HOPE!

This is for the broken hearted. I know how you feel. Empty, betrayed, and no happiness whatsoever. You don't want to laugh, because you know it's not going to help, but you don't want to cry, because it will just make you feel worse. You feel like your heart is falling apart, but not only that, but you know soon your life is going to feel like it's falling apart too. You don't think it will ever end, and no matter what this person has done to you, it feels impossible to stop loving them. And everyone wonders why if they have hurt you so much, then why do you still love them. That's the confusing part, you don't know why, you just do, and the people who hurt you the most are normally the ones you love the most. And then, after a few weeks, you finally feel a sense of relief, like you're getting happy again, but you know inside that you're just going into denial. And after a few more weeks, you're back to where you were an empty soul and teary eyes. You thought you got over them, but really, you just stopped showing it. And you can't help but to show it again. It leaves deep scars on your heart that are there forever. And no one understands how you feel, and how deep you are hurt, no matter who they are, because it hasn't happened to them And even if it has, every broken heart is different. They don't know the true pain you feel and carry each and everyday now, so you learn that basically you are alone with all this. And the feeling starts to overwhelm you, and suddenly you just break down, right there, because you know you've had enough, the tears just instantly start flowing, and you're to the point where you don't care who see's. Because you've spent so many nights lying awake in bed, and so many days being haunted by the scars and fear of rejection. And in the midst of all these tears, you know that its not helping any, and it's not going to bring them back, if you ever even had them in the first place. After about a million tears have been cried, you finally pull yourself back together and keep going. Your throat starts to clench and your eyes burn with the tears you are trying to hold back. Everyone says, "It will be okay…” But you know it won't. And that’s the truth, it won’t. And you look back on all of the hurt you had from this, and you realize that people are horrible. You're still hurt, but you've learned to hide it so that everyone thinks you are okay. So now every time you see this person, you know you still love them, and you feel a slight tingle in your heart yearning for them to love you, screaming out, but for some reason they don't hear it. And then you sit back and wonder how one person could have caused all of this...
But dont worry one day you'll wake up & decided "what a waste of time it was to dwell on the sadness that one person caused me." One day you will be happier that you every could have imagined!! Trust me it happens, you'll realize life is happy!! :) THERE IS HOPE!! :)

My Eventful Weekend

THURSDAY: Went to Kolob with Dan, Sky, Sarah C, Chancen, Jordanne, Stephanie & Sara. It was way fun, i had my very 1st celestial smore & will never be the same! We were also serenaded by Dan, if you all didn't know he was famous way back when! If you see him, ask him about it!! :) maybe he'll sing his song for ya!!!
FRIDAY: i babysat the cutest little guy in the whole world, tate johnson, & took my grandma to her doctors appointments.
SATURDAY: sky & axton convinced me to go to the regional singles ward activity @ the lake, so we got on their 4-wheelers & headed out to the lake the backway takin the trail that came out right above the lake. I figured i'd be ok to not wear sunscreen cuz i already had my 1 sunburn this summer & already had my base tan started, we'll the 2 hours @ the lake & about an hour 4 wheeling back in my swimming suit. my shoulders are fried & hurt! The plan that night was i was going to go to the fair for the 1st time in 3 years (long story), but i guess plans fell through or there must have been a mis-understanding cuz when 8:00 rolled around i hadn't heard a thing.. So i text my cousin kenz & we went to the late showing of Eat Pray Love. It was a pretty cute show, & i love Julia Roberts.
SUNDAY: we went to church & if i would have known the a/c wouldn't be working i would have worn a ponytail & brought a fan! But my dad got a new calling. He is now known as the 2nd counselor to the Bishop. haha Guess thats what he gets for asking the stake president if he can be the "stake nursery treat coordinator" haha
What a eventful crazy weekend.

Something scares you men. It's not terrorism, economic recession, global warming, or gasoline prices. These things might worry you, but something else makes your palms sweat and your pulse hit triple digits, that is... Asking a girl out on a date. That's because asking a girl out involves potential pain. If the object of your affection becomes aware of your intentions, she might not reciprocate, & that's going to hurt. I don't care if you're the most self-confident, well-adjusted person around; rejection hurts! It makes the remaining friendship awkward at best, humiliation at worst. Revealing romantic feelings is a risky business. Many guys find a way around the risk, or at least they think they do. Instead of asking a girl out on a date & being bold in their intentions, they turn to the soggy milquetoast alternative to dating... "Hanging Out".
Dont get me wrong hanging out every now & again is fun, but seriously what happened to the good old days when a guy would actually pick up the phone & call a girl to ask her out? Seems that now days it involves a text asking if they wanna hang or go do this, clearly not clarifying "date" or "hang out". Being a girl it makes the situation slightly awkward if you go thinking its a date, only to get there & there to be more girls than guys or visa versa. Its not that big group "dates" are bad, its when the numbers of girls dont match the number of guys, that bugs us.
I'm sure i'm not the only girl who feels this way, but i wish guys could just get in there head that dating is cool & more fun than hanging out.The end, thats all i gotta say!

Hair Extension/ Road Trip/ B-day

This past weekend i spent with my family up in Heaven a.k.a. Kolob Mountain for our family reunion. The weather was excellent (in about the 70's)all weekend long. I have decided though that next year it will either be me at the reunion or the dogs! Not both! On Saturday while everyone was going down the dangerous zipline i decided to do this!! Here is a photo of my new hair extension. Please ignore the fact that when i took this pic i had no make-up on & am in my pj's (go cougars!)

This weekend i am going up to Woods Cross to visit/stay with my best friend Marie. I can't wait!! :) i miss her so much! We are going to party it up for about 3-4 days! The quality of this picture sucks cuz it was taking with a sucky phone camera!

And... Happy Belated 18th Birthday to my beautiful little sisters!

Running... I seriously love it. It makes me super duper happy! :)It is one of the only cures for my bad days (that & chocolate). When i'm mad, upset, stressed, or frustrated once again its the best cure!! Also i got a new running tank top complete with a ipod/phone pocket on the shoulder! :)

This picture describes it all

Surprise Visitor!!

So today i was sittin on the couch watchin a very weird show with my dad when we heard our (old john wayne) bell in the back yard start to ring. My dad turned to me & said Whit, look outside & see who that is! I looked out the blinds & was extremely SURPRISED to see my very dear friend BRADY CASE :) (who i haven't seen in about a year) I hurried & ran out back to give him a big hug! We came inside & visited for about 2 hours. My dad & Brady could be best friends... he is a cowboy, loves Gunsmoke (any western to be exact), & could talk to my dad FOREVER about john wayne or any old cowboy! Brady brought his new guitar & we attempted to have a jam session.. we could probably use some practice. But it was way fun!!!! Thanks for comin over Brady!! I've missed ya!
this is brady (in the 1st pic that is brady & his sisters)

Long Time No Post....

Well its been quite some time since i've been on here & posted so i decided that its past time to post! Here are a few of the things that have happened recently:

First off, ignore the ugly close face shot! If you look closely at my lips, you can see they have huge blisters on the inside of my lips. This is a result of hot chocolate. I decided i'd get it after work one day cuz i had froze at work (it was like 60 degrees inside & i was in shorts) Well i got it & decided that i'd drink it with my orange peel straw instead of the little ones you can get at the gas station... well that was THE stupidest decision i've ever made! My lips were swollen for about a week, worst week ever! I look like i got stung by a bee, & i was allergic!

June 12th/13th 2010. Yes this is a picture taken in Hurricane, Utah in the middle of June. Saturday June 12th, we were hit with a HUGE hail storm/ rain storm. House flooded, hail on the ground for 2 days, lots of water everywhere. I never imagined to see this in hurricane during June, looks more like wintertime!

Last but not least (cuz i'm out of time!) This is the lead singer of Imagine Dragons. They are my new favorite band! While in Vegas last weekend w/ Shayli, Shauni & BreAnna for Brinley's baptism we decided to go to see them in concert! They are freaking amazing! I loved the concert minus the HEAT & the opening band called Otherwise! Their lead singer was FREAKY!!
All in all a great weekend in Vegas, went on a fun blind date & attended a great concert!!!

Never Again will i rent anything from U-haul! They are way over priced & i met one of their rudest workers today!! The 2 of those things together can really ruin your day!!
So about 8:30 this morning i got a call from Sky saying "Hey whit, your car broke down on us in payson, can you please drive my truck up here & tow us home. So while driving up Sky called the U-haul in provo & reserved a tow trailer (the one with only 2 wheels) When we got to provo u-haul the guy working said "we DONT have one here! Around 4 or 5 we'll have one which is a 2 car one & would cost 119 if we returned it to their store w/in 24 hours, so Sky asked why they didnt have it when clearly 4 hours sooner they told us they did! The worker checked online & said "oh it looks like you called here & the lady you talked to didn't know what she was doing. We have one reserved for you 40 miles away in West Valley so you'll have to go there!" (might i add he was a complete jerk about it) So we had no choice but to head up & get it. We got one of those 2 wheeled tow trailers connected together with a bar & i was thinking this should be at least half the cost cuz the 2 car one cost 119 to rent but NOPE!! It cost us $190 freakin dollars for this stupid trailer!! A complete rip off if you ask me! So not only was i in a super pissy mood all day because my car broke down &wont start but we had to drive 1 1/2 hours longer than we expected because of screw up at the freakin u-haul! I officially hate any & all U-Haul Rentals & will NEVER use one again!!!!

  17. Read ALL the Nicholas Sparks books i absolutely LOVE his movies, so i am hoping the book be as good or even better, if that is possible!!)

  19. Learn to drive stick shift i successfully did it once but then our car broke down so i could never master it & now i dont know exactly how to do it without killing it every time i shift!!

  21. Have a FRIENDS marathon with Marie In 2009 i was one of the unlucky people who got the H1N1 flu, i was out of work & quarantined to my house, so i started with season 1 episode 1 & watched the complete Friends series!

The Last Song....

So I just went & saw The Last Song with my friend Marie & let me just say its a new favorite for sure! I seriously loved it! Teared up a little bit.. alright maybe a lot a bit but it was definitely worth it! Nicholas Sparks, is one AMAZING, TALENTED man! I mean this, The Notebook, A Walk To Remember, Dear John..the list could go on & on! I love you Nicholas Sparks!

I would recommend it for anyone who hasn't seen it!
(if you cry in shows too, maybe take a tissue or two)

Pictures From The Past

So i was going through old pictures & i came across a few that made me cry, laugh, & smile so i just had to share & tell a little something to go along with each picture...


This was probably the hardest moment of my life, saying goodbye to not only my big brother & best friend for 2 years.
(i know, doesn't look like me now... for those who don't know or dont really remember i had blonde hair back then!)

This is a picture of a real Cow Tongue. For a YW/YM activity we did Fear Factor. One member of each team had to eat a piece of this, i was a member of an all guys team & was the one who ended up eating some. (The guys on my team were seriously the biggest wimps!) There were a number of gross things i ate this night including chocolate covered crickets, sardines & the tongue. The only gross thing i didnt eat that night was pickled pigs feet, & the reason behind that is pretty obvious. I HATE FEET & will NEVER eat them. Although it wasn't super horrible tasting i will probably never eat cow tongue or roast beef (tasted similar) ever again!

One of the scariest, coldest rides of my life, yet funnest!
Four-wheeling with Sky & Axton has always been a favorite of mine, but this time in particular was by far the scariest. There is a very very steep scary hill way out in the dunes, numerous of times i have observed from up top as they have tried to ride up it only to make it half-way & almost flip over sideways on the way down. I vowed many years ago to never go up or down it! Well this day we were driving above it & i remember Axton telling me that "we" were going down it. As my grip around his waist got tighter & tighter, I began to say (my words exactly) "How about i watch you, sky & marie from up here, i'm scared to go down it." He stopped & looked back with this sad puppy dog face & said Dont you trust me?! I began to stand up & say i do but i'd feel safer up here watching... He then pushed on the gas & said Hold on Whit! As i tried to forcefully shove myself off he back of the fast moving four-wheeler, i felt Axton grab ahold of my arm to make sure i wasn't going off the back of it, but instead down the hill on the with him!! Not only did my life flash before my eyes but I thought i was literally gonna die. Once we made it to the bottom, Axton turned to me & said, See that wasn't even a scary. I do believe i was about 90% of the way off the 4-wheeler at that time. Considering it happened against my own will, i guess i can say, Ya i've been down that hill & once is more than enough for me!! :)

Last pic i promise.... PHOTO 4:

Sorry i know this is really gross! This is the after picture of my wart i had frozen. (side view of my ring finger on my right hand, middle knuckle) The original wart was very small, smaller than a half a skittle. I was very self conscious of my hand so i decided that i wanted it gone. When the doctor began to freeze it i told him to do it til i said stop. He froze it for about 2 minutes, when i finally couldnt stand the pain any longer I told him to stop. This is what it looked like later that night & about 3 weeks following. (sorry i'm getting a little graphic now) It was about the size of a grape, some days even bigger. It was stretching the skin so much that at times i thought my skin would rip, it was so shiny around the edges. Every night i would drain the blood out of it & this is what it would look like by morning. Life was pretty hard for the month or so following this procedure! But today all that is left on my finger is a small scar that i am ok with!

Bad Day...

So today was just one of those days when you think to yourself.. ah gosh i shouldn't have even gotten out of bed today! I had a very very long day at work, to top it off the a/c wasn't working & i had too many phone calls from impatient (rude) patients.Had to stay indoors while its was such a pretty day outside. & After i got off i went for a run & it was super sucky. Today was also one of those days where everything i did reminded me of you & every song i heard somehow related to you. I hate days like today, because they reminded me of the one thing i don't have.

Guess all i can do is smile & pretend everything is amazing & keep my fingers crossed for a better tomorrow :)

Things Guys Should Always Do For Girls. Period.

I have met some guys in the past few years who have turned out to be the BIGGEST jerks! So what you are about to read, pretty much says it all!!
Here are 21 things guys should always do for girls. PERIOD.
1. ALWAYS open doors whenever possible- whether it be to a building or the passenger car door.
2. A man should tolerate the occasional chick flick, musical, opera, or ballet- whatever her preference is *without* complaining about it!
3. If you miss her, or love her, TELL HER! It's nice to hear it every now & again
4. Hold her hand while you talk, drive, or just for the heck of it (it's the small things that win you big points!!)
5. Remember- The best gifts you can give are usually FREE of cost!
6. Leave a note (send a message) or call her just to say hi
7. Ask her questions about herself (its a good way to get to know her!)
8. Dress nice every once in a while. Any girl likes to see her brother/friend/boyfriend/etc. in a well-ironed button-up with some nice jeans or slacks.
9. LOOK IN HER EYES, NOT AT HER CHEST! (big turn off)
10. Sometimes you have to take the initiative. Don't always wait for her to come to you, because if that's how it always is, you're going to lose her.
11. Offer her your jacket/sweatshirt/hoodie (Note: You may not see that particular item of clothing for a while, if ever again :)
12. PRIDE & PREJUDICE... that's all i have to say about that. I mean, that should speak for itself.
13. Kiss her on the forehead every once in a while, it doesn't always have to be on the lips!
14. Always be honest with her. No woman wants or likes a dishonest man. If you can't be honest with her, she can't trust you, & it shows you don't trust her enough to be honest. Trust, Honesty & Integrity are just as important in a relationship as is hugs & kisses
15. Men, sing to her, even if you're terrible, suck it up! They love to listen to it & will not care what you sound like. It's the thought that counts on this one.
16. Don't always blame her bad moods on PMS, sometimes girls just have bad days too!
17. Guys always offer to pay for the date, no matter how expensive it gets, especially if YOU asked HER on the date (if she is willing (or offers) to pay now & again, don't let your "man pride" get in the way of her wanting to give back to you. She should understand money can be tight- especially when you're always buying)
18. If you're gonna tease her, let her tease you back without getting all bent out of shape about it
19. Don't call her hot or sexy, instead call her pretty, cute, or beautiful. "Hot" & "Sexy" are so overused & superficial!
20. Its not stalking to watch her sleep if she falls asleep while watching a movie with you, but it is stalking to watch her sleep if you're standing outside her window with night vision googles on! ha

& thats my spill :)

Big Decisions Ahead

So over the past few months i have been really debating on whether i wanna move or not. I want to get out of Hurricane/St. George area & go somewhere else. I'm tired of the same old everyday routine, i am ready to start a new chapter in my life & meet new people. I have always loved Provo/Orem area & 2 of my cousins have been working real hard on convincing me that i am ready to move up there with them this year. And really the only thing really holding me back right now is my job. It has the most flexible hours, its only open mon-fri., it's my doctor (so if i am sick i can just talked to him instead of scheduling an appointment), i work with people i love, its just all around the best job you could ask for....But I've said all along... If i could find a good job up there i'd move in a heart beat.
I guess i'll i can say is.... let the job searching begin!

Wow, this is the 3rd day in a row posting on my blog :) that's a record for me!!
So, after eating a very delicious, HUGE slice of asphalt pie from wingers at lunch, i felt a little guilty so this evening so i decided to workout, my workout consisted of:
- 100 regular crunches
- 100 leg raises
- 50 Wacky Jacks (sounds funny but really burns)
- 15 minutes of our weighted hula hoop
- 30 minute jog/sprint (wasn't gonna be a sprint but had a creepy moment so i had to sprint home!!!)

Long Day

Today has been a very long day! Yup, its my 5th day of waking up @ 4 am :( I dont know why it happens but it does at exactly 4:39am i am wide awake, luckily no tears the past 2 mornings! I slept through my phone alarm 3 times, so i woke up late. Worked from 9-1. Looked everywhere for some bright& cheerful gerber daisies... finally found some @ tai pan after an hour of searching. On my way home i almost had my car window shattered. (stupid truck driver!!) Made a gerber daisy bouquet to put on my friends grave for her b-day today (Happy Birthday Mandy Johnson, I love you & miss you lots!) Went to the Kim, Trev's & Tates with Sky & Marie to watch Tristian & Isolde, pretty good movie... sad ending. Played NERTZ (a freaking fun card game), & had a blast! What an eventful day, if only i could go to sleep right now...

Tuesday, March 2, 2010


Is it weird that i have woken up from a (semi) sad dream about a guy @ exactly 4 am the monday morning & tuesday morning in tears? It wasn't just a few tears, my pillow was pretty wet & i was breathing kinda funny (like people do when they cry extremely hard & they can barely catch there breath)I dont know whats up but i hope that when 4 am rolls around i am sound asleep with no tears! I guess part of this came true this morning rolled around & 4 am i was wide awake again!!!
So, side note....I found this quote tonight & it describes my feelings for the guy i dreamed about...... (i know its prob too early to say this but its my honest feelings)

This weekend i took my sisters & 2 of their friends up to the boy's basketball state playoff games @ UVU. We got up there Friday & played Wasatch, it was a very intense game, but we lost in the last quarter because of the ref's. I mean seriously 28 fouls called on us vs. 9 called on them during the entire game! That seems quite unfair. But great job tigers for playing your best & winning today!! :) After the game to calm the girls down we went out for ice cream, Trev met us there & then went back to our relatives house to watch Baby Mama. It was such a fun night, thanks Trev for cheering up the girls & especially for making my weekend lots of fun :) I'm sad i had to leave & come home but i am excited to sleep in my own bed tonight :)

I wanted post something longer & way exciting but
instead this is basically my weekend in a nutshell....
i went up to Provo & spent the weekend with Trevor (& his family) :) Friday night i went to his soccer game & he got re-injured :( because of the stupid goalie! We watched some movies with his roommate & his girlfriend then with & his sister JaNae & her boyfriend, I slept over @ JaNae's apartment (by the way thanks!!) Spent lots of time with his family which was heaps of fun, & also with his cute nephew too, Camden is a handsome little guy. Went bowling with his whole family which was a blast. :) Basically his family is awesome & they are so funny! :) It was very sad to have leave Provo to come back home today but it had to end eventually :( oh & i decided that i really do hate the cold!! (snow especially!)

Vegas Baby!!

Welcome Home from your mission BRETT LANE LEAVITT!! The past 2 years went by so fast!! Friday- We (me, sky, marie, shayli & shauni) got to Vegas later in the afternoon & went straight to Brett's so we could see him!! After visiting with all the family there we went to Town Square with Brett. It was lots of fun! Saturday- Spent more time with all the cousins, went shopping with Sky & Marie. It was pretty fun! I got a call on the way home from the mall & it was Trevor (Rhonda's nephew) he asked if i wanted to go on a date with him later that night! It made my whole day to have him ask me out! We went on our date with my brother Sky & his girlfriend Marie, my cousin Brett & trevor's friend Meagan. We ate at Buffalo Wild Wings, (i must say i was kinda nervous to eat it there having never heard of it but Trevor swore by it so i decided to try it & not be scared! It is was pretty good i might add!) After eating we went bowling. Game 1 Trevor & Sky tied for 1st place with a score of 156. I felt bad though for Trevor, his shoulder was hurting him so bad but he kept bowling. :( What a trooper!! Game 2 after the first 2 frames of me & Trevor had knocked down the exact same number of pins so we decided we were gonna end the game with the same score! Even though we didn't win, the end score was Me: 74, Trevor 74. That takes some mad skill & of course me & trevor have it! :) Once we finished our games we headed over to his house to decorate some cookies his sister Meg had made for Valentines Day!

This is a picture of mine & Trevor's cookie! :) Isn't it just the cutest cookie ever!!!!
(I let Trevor pick the hearts cuz i frosted it, they me, sweet pea, sweet love,my boo, my girl, me & you, you rock, love him, adore me, crazy 4U, & soul mate!)
Sunday- Slept @ Bretts again & then went to get ready with the rest of the family at Dax & Amy's. Church was at 1:00, Brett did an amazing job with his testimony & talk. Taralee, Shelise, Kyle & Ronnow sang, it was very beautiful!! :) Afterwords we visited with family & had some delicious lunch! That night Trevor invited me, my sisters & brett to go watch a movie later at his house. We watch Iron Man, a little bit of The Office, Hannah Montana, some tree cutting show, & Wizards of Waverly Places.
We woke up, got ready, hung around the house for a little while, said our goodbyes :( Then went shopping at the mall. I found 3 new shirts & a new dress! The twins found there preference dresses :) Then we headed home!! It was a quick trip back. I am very sad this weekend is over, now back to the real world. I can't wait til another weekend in Vegas!

This Is Me Dang It

So i just heard this quote & i love it!!! It's so what i want to say to a select few people!! haha
"There comes a time when you have to stand up & shout:

This is me dang it!
I look the way i look, think the way i feel, love the way i love!I am the whole complex package. Take me.... or leave me. Accept me.... or walk away! Do not try to make me feel like less of a person, just because i don't fit your idea of who i should be & don't try to change me to fit your mold. If i need to change, i alone will make that decision. When you are strong enough to love yourself 100%, good & bad, you will be amazed at the opportunities that life presents you!" --stacey charter

& also tonight is THE BACHELOR!!! i so can't wait to see what happens tonight!!
(is it bad that i am so so addicted to it? well that my whole family is? it basically is fhe every monday night!!)

Jake Pavekla-- Bachelor 2010

So I must admit that i am 100% addicted to this seasons Bachelor. I haven't missed an episode yet!! Actually my whole family has become very faithful Bachelor watchers (even my dad & brothers haha) Since the very first episode i have already knew my favorite girls, least favorite girls & i have also picked my #1 favorite girl. About the girls left... (in order of Favorite to Least!)


Tenley is the one i would pick if i were Jake, if he doesn't pick her he is just plan STUPID!! She is freaking gorgeous!! & She is like the only girl who isn't fake. She seems to be on the show for the right find love & to be the right one for Jake. She is definitely here for Jake & not just to be on the show. She is the ONLY one who goes on dates with Jake & all that matter are the two of them!! She hasn't ever brought up any of the problems that are going on with the other girls @ the house.... (VIENNA!!!) Also being married previously i feel that she has more experience than any of the other girls & she deserves a husband who will treat her right!! :)


Ali is my 2nd favorite. She is a very pretty girl, & i like her. To say the least she hates Vienna but who doesn't? I have noticed that the past couple of times Jake has taken her for there 1 on 1, she has brought up Vienna in one way or another. It doesn't seem to me that she is all focused on the end prize as much as others may be! I just dont think she is completely right for Jake...


Gia is right there next to Ali, I like her but there is just some things that bug me, first of all she isn't confident at all.... In the last episode on her double with Vienna she kinda just hung back & didn't fit at all for Jake, she needs to be more confident cuz she is gorgeous! Second, her lips!! They are so so fake! It bugs me!! (My mom thinks when she smiles she looks like the Joker!!) She isn't right for Jake, they are 2 totally different people with different goals in life!!


Vienna, i can pretty much describe my feelings for her in 5 words & 1 number! HATE HER, SHE IS 2 FACED! She just bugs the crap out of me!!! She acts completely different when she is with the girls in the house compared to when she is alone with Jake, & the dumbest thing about it is HE DOESN'T SEE IT & when others tell him about it HE JUST DOESN'T GET IT!!! I think if he picks her it will be the beginning of Hell for him!!

So question for all you avid watchers.... Is anyone else SO SO SO freakin upset with Jake for not illuminating Vienna at the last rose ceremony? (& after what she did on the last episode!!) She drives me completely insane!! I knew girls in high school like her & EVERYONE hated them, why can't Jake see who she really is, instead of seeing her as someone she is pretending to be!!

If Jake is STUPID & doesn't pick Tenley to be his wife, who votes she is next seasons Bachelorette?!
