so, i'm no mary wollenzien

Tonight we had a film competition for a tri-ward FHE which we have known about it for a couple of weeks. I wasn't really planning on doing anything, until last Thursday night when I got a crazy idea. So, I pulled out my new flip video camera (a Christmas present from my parents)and some items from my costume collection. This is what resulted:

Background: Owen is a good friend that I love to tease. He is a funny (and slightly shy) guy and it is fun to pretend that I am deeply in love with him.

The Public's Response: I was super nervous about showing the video. I was mostly afraid that no one would laugh. Fortunately I was wrong. People loved it! They laughed so hard and clapped even harder. In the end I won the big "People's Choice Award," and got a standing ovation.

My Confession: I made it a New Year's resolution to kiss Owen. When I went up to accept the PCA, I waved Owen up to the stand with me, made a brief statement then said, "I guess there nothing left to say except..." Then I grabbed his face and kissed him. It wasn't exactly romantic, but it was dramatic and I fulfilled my goal.

When I think about the night I just keep wondering if I will ever change, and if my crazy antics will ever end.

I have either experienced for myself or seen someone else do all of the following:

•Laugh until they cry
•Have to excuse themselves from church, class, and other such activities because of uncontrollable laughter
•Laugh so hard it makes them wet their pants
*Struggle to breath because they are laughing

But, I have always wondered if anyone had laughed so hard they stopped breathing and passed out. A secret part of me has hoped that at some point in my life I will somehow experience this.

Tonight, Whitney and McKay got me laughing so hard my secret wish almost came true.

I have not laughed like that since before I left Provo. Thank you ladies.

no perservatives

I made my own hummus last night. The recipe I used was fairly easy and turned out to be quite delicious (next time I'll use just a little less tahini). It made SO MUCH!!! I predict this week will be a very hummus filled week.

the morning is speaking to me

from the moment i woke up this morning i just had this feeling about today. i don't know what it is, it just feels like today is going to be a magical day. there is something different in the air, and i feel good and hopeful. i can't wait to see how it turns out.

I don't know why, but...

I just counted all of my jewels: Turns out I have 59 necklaces.

I don't, by any means, give all of them their fair share of face time (I have my favorites).
I've officially decided that I am going to wear a different necklace everyday for 2 months. This way each of my necklaces will be treated equally, and it will force me to be more creative with my accessory selection.
