Easter Sundee

I am under the weather - as some would call it.

But that didn't stop me from singing in the choir today.

I should have sang bass from how masculine my voice is still sounding.


But at least we sang Be Still my Soul, and I Know that My Redeemer Lives.

two of my favorite hymns.

"I know that My Redeemer lives. What comfort this sweet sentence gives."

That sentence truly does give me such great comfort.

Well anyways...

This is how i spent my easter:

Woke up with my dad swinging my door open - "Anna! Peter Cottontail still came, even though you are twenty-one!"

(He gave me cash monies! And itunes gift cards! How nice of him!)

Then my family left to their home ward.

I got ready for my ward.

even curled my hair.

Then felt sickly after sacrament meeting.

Came home.

Took a 2 hour nap. It felt really nice.

We ate Hawaiian Haystacks for Sundee Dinner. They were super delicious! I'm surprised we didn't eat Rabbit..

or eggs.

Then my family watched Prince Charles and Princess Dianna get married on TLC.

She had an extremely wrinkley dress. That's all I could notice.

Then my family listened to some sweet Samba musica.

and danced.

I love to dance.

Just as long as I dance like no one is watching!

I woke up with morning voice X's 10

We all know what morning voice is...

If in the case that you do not - it is when your voice sounds sort of groggy because you have just woken up.

I normally love morning voice.

I think it is funny to listen to people talk.

They sound so different.

They sound especially different and funny when you get a little congested,

and you end up with

Morning voice for an Old man.

(morning voice X's 10)

That's what I'm diagnosing myself with today.

Do not call me just to hear my awesome voice.

I will only answer if I sound less like an old man as the day goes on.

oh, ya. it sounds super attractive.

top 10 worst movies of all time

10. Halloween Town 2 Kalabar's Revenge

9. The Neverending Story

This movie's title should tell you much about this film. It's NEVER ENDING!

8. Land Before Time II - VIII

Except for I do like the part in Part V: The Mysterious Island, when Chomper sings the "Big Water" song. That song will forever be burned into my brain. So Catchy!

7. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Interesting Idea. Way too long to hold my attention. I can't handle a baby-grandpa. It messes with my brain, and that is why I don't like it.

6. The Poltergeist...

"This house is Cleeear."

5. Zenon: The Zequel


I'm sure (if you grew up on the Disney Channel) that you will remember this direct quote. This movie actually ties for the other "DCOM", Quints.

4. Grown Ups

Saw this last summer at a Drive-In. All I remember is the crude humor, and the overdone jokes. Not funny at all.

3. Fragile

Remember the Mechanical Woman? Yikes.

2. The Box

never ever ever ever even think about watching this.
not on netflix.
not on youtube.
not through blockbuster.
not in any other way shape or form.

Just saw this one tonight. Hense this list..

I would rather watch The Box 12 zillion times before ever watching this movie again. Easily the WORST movie ever made. I would have called it Red Riding HO! (In fact, that is what my ticket stub said - don't worry, I only paid $3 to see it.)

happiness and loving

i used to make lists of things that made me happy..

see a list here.

but you know what i have realized recently?

that i don't need to make lists to think of reasons for being happy.

but that it is love of, from and for people is what truly makes me happy.

it is what heals me and moves me

and it is what actually makes me, me.

because the more i love, the more i find myself growing. and the more i grow, the more substance of me there is of me to just love others even more... if that makes any sense. (it does in my head.)

love this quote, given in one of my favorite talks

"If you judge people, you have no time to love them."

-Mother Teresa

moral of this post:

give people the benefit of the doubt.

be kind to each other.

don't judge a book by it's cover.

accept someone's differences, weaknesses, and shortcomings.

have patience.

forgive and forget.

and love one another.

ma Guurlz

We had the greatest girls night last night!

Jammie sure knows when it is due time for some girl time.

Here is what we did:

made homemade delicious BBQ Chicken Pizza's

Watched Chasing Liberty. (Mandy Moore - Her name is Anna in this film, and oh man.. the MAN in this movie is definitely satisfying eye candy!)

    Got out some saran wrap, smashed our faces against them, and took very hilarious photos.

I turned BLONDE as well.... (ha. no. This is just Jammie's Hair on My head)

    Drew faces on our chins while singing to awesome songs - "She's indecisive... She can't decide!"

    Put tin-foil GRILLZ in our mouths and made more music videos. Once Jammie puts them up, I'll definitely provide the link. Because they are fuuunny! (Songs including - Lemme see yo Grill, Billionaire, etc..)

I love ma Guurlz! You guys are too great!

4. watching ELDER Hayward. what a stud! (next purchase will be a Hayward Jersey for sure.)

3. coming out of the game to insane rain. very fun

2. getting lost in slc.

Remember how in only 1 short week

he's going to school?

Do you also remember how 3 months is nothing in comparison to 2 years?

me too.


I'm not so much looking forward to the summer-time.

Which is strange.

Because I do love summer.

summer school?

no boy?


I am sooo ready for it to be August already.

August 12th to be precise...

that is 4 months away.


but you know what?

Missing someone gets easier every day because even though it's one day further from the last time you saw each other, it's one day closer to the next time you will.

missing you already...

and it looks like Rudy will be missing you too.

Friday, April 1, 2011


and he didn't even text me to find out which color I was wearing.

(**side note** i really love jake's face in this picture. he's got a nice curve smile..ha!)

(**side note dos** my dress looks more red in this pic... it's actually more pink. promise.)

how inspiring (:

I can't wait for the weekend!!

tonight: We're seeing the Carl Bloch exhibit at BYU.

i have heard nothing but amazing things about these paintings. It will be saweeeet!

tomorrow: Bishop Greg asked if I wanted tix to go see the Saturday Morning Session of

General Conference

How sweet is that?

Even sweeter that I have never been, and I get to go with you-know-who for the very first time!


Have a spectacular weekend!
