Tonight I went to my very first institute class, with my sister and some of her friends, mind you I'm not even 18 yet, (thank goodness) so i'm not even considered a young single adult.  But I am young and I am single!
Anyways, when we walked in I happened to notice that a big section of the benches were taped off in the chapel so you couldn't sit in them, I asked my sister why they were taped off, she says "So people won't sit back there and sit up front." I then replied, "I could sit there if i wanted too... it's just tape.  Single adults must be pretty dumb if they can't get past tape." (I humor myself.)
Then they were passing the role around, which I thought was a sign up dating sheet, which is genius for the single adults, so when it got to me I realized that it was not a dating sign up sheet, which was disappointing, cause I definitely would have signed up. :)  

After institute was over my sister asked me if I saw any potential husbands in there, I scoffed and said no, while I was thinking of my future and my future husband, which I will now share about.

Next year, on July 14th, 2012, I plan on marrying Rajon Rondo, for those of you who do not know who he is, he is a professional basketball player for the Boston Celtics. 
This is him below. 

Anyways, it all started way back when in the NBA finals, but it really started when we made eye contact at the Jazz game against the Celtics, February 28th 2011. (Yes, we really made eye contact)
Before all of this, I planned out our lives. After we get married, we are going to buy a mountain, and we will live on this mountain with our mansion at the top, we will have a tram going up to our home from our garage at the bottom of the mountain that will house all our cars.  Also on the mountain I will have my hair salon, which for now, will be called "The Cuttin' Corral" (the name may change, so don't get to attached. and yes, I stole it from Napoleon dynamite.) 
We will also have really cute black babies, and yes, I have names.
Da' Sean, J' Covan, my twin boys, Orangejello and Lemonjello, and if I have a girl, Shaqueem, and I'll be honest, I want more boys than girls, girls are just to dramatic and boys are better.
So ya, Rajon and I are going to have a pretty good life, we're also going to have a house in Boston where he plays, and a few other summer getaways, like in Fiji, or the Bahama's, and  probably one in Hawaii, that my brother can stay at and keep the house running, if he chooses to move to Hawaii after he comes home from his mission.
So if you ever need a good getaway, you can always come visit me and Rajon on our mountain! :)
He's just so dang attractive, and yes, he is converting right now if you are wondering.

Summer 2011

I know I've already posted today, but I'm still pretty excited about this whole blog thing, and I'm still not sure how to ever use it. :)
Anyways, since summer has just ended and senior year just starting, I'll make a toast to my last official summer as a home-schooled high school-er.
My fantastic summer started out with the first week of June, where i went to St. George Utah for probably my last session of EFY, with my amazing cousin Kazlen.
It was probably the most spiritual experience I've ever had, my testimony was strengthened by the people i met and the examples that they are to me and my amazing counselor Elysse, who has helped me so much, she probably has know idea how much. 

I had such a fun time getting to know new people and learn more about the gospel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
 This would be me with Grandma.

 This chair/ couch train was boss.
 Best counselors ever!
This was our sweet lunch lady who came and talked to us every day, her name is Dixie, and i miss that woman a lot!

And this is the best company I could have asked for!

A couple weeks later I had my (technically) last year of girls camp, pretty sad to think about, i'll miss girls camp a lot.  
I had the chance to work with the 4th year girls in my ward, and those 3 girls are amazing, they strengthened my testimony with theirs and they were just great examples! 
 This is the 4th year girls, and my co- YCL (I guess you'd call it that...)

 We live the Hawaiian/ thug life at G-Camp
This is where we stayed, not to shabby. :)

Right after girls camp I went to Astoria Oregon to visit the Grandparents, and I can't tell you how much i love Oregon, it is probably my most favorite place in the world, and I just love the coast there!
 Tillamook cheese anyone?
 This would be the creeper cheese guy, who kept looking at me, so of course I took his picture.
 The Goonies house!!
 This is the cemetery that we like to go visit.
 and I like to play dead in the cemetery.
can you say fog?

Also while we were up north, we went to my cousins wedding in Sedro Wooley Washington, and a couple weeks after that my other cousin got married in the Salt Lake Temple, both from the same family, it's so weird to me that everyone is growing up and going to college or getting married, to be honest, it scares me.

July 13-16, I had my last Youth Conference, we had the chance as a stake to go up to our stake property and reenact the Book of Mormon, and it was one of the coolest experiences of my life, we were all separated into tribes, and my tribe was the best.  I was also on the Youth council, so i helped plan this, and so many hours were put into this youth conference what with costumes, reenactments of stories from the book of Mormon and so many other things.   
I didn't take very many pictures at Youth conf. which I really regret now, but there was a pretty sick moon one night that i happened to get a shot of.

The rest of my summer was filled with late nights with friends, missionaries leaving on missions, friends going to college or back to college, crazy thunderstorms with insane lightning!!  Drivin' out to Grantsville Utah out in the middle of nowhere, and I love it out there, and one day i'll live there!  Lake day's with family and a family reunion at Tracy Aviary, which is ironic since i'm terrified of birds...
My summer has been great, I won't forget the people I've met, the friends I've made, the late nights doing absolutely nothing, star gazing, and so many other things that i could list but that would go on forever. 
It's been real Summer 2011.
just a few more things I love about summer. :)
 The Temple!! :)

 a good watermelon
Grantsville, it' so darn beautiful!!

Smiths grocery store incident.

Well to get this blog started, I though I would share just how much of a klutz I really am.
It all started last Saturday, when mother sent me to Smiths to buy ice cream.  Beef (Maya) came with me, and it was raining real hard, so we ran to the door from the car, and my first mistake was wearing flip flops, second mistake was not jumping onto the rug like Beef did.  So as we were running into the store, I, not so gracefully slipped on the tile and flopped to the ground, where Beef laughed.  We then continued to the ice cream isle, when my leg started to hurt, so I pulled my shorts up to look at my shin/ knee, to find a huge red mark, then it started to sting.
The next day, it started to scab over, and I also noticed the huge bruise that goes all the way from my ankle to just below my knee, fantastic.
A week later, I still have a huge scab that looks like beef jerky.
So welcome to my blog, love it, or hate it.
