I'm feeling WICKED

One short day in the city of Denver...

This past week me, my mom, and our great friend Michele Farrer flew out to Denver for 2 days to see the play Wicked. IT WAS AMAZINGLY INCREDIBLE AND TOTALLY WICKED!!! I loved it so much. Definitely one of the best birthday presents ever. My mom has a great talent of finding awesome deals online for tickets and hotels, so we were on the front row! It was such a neat, once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Me, My Mom, and Michele

Michele Farrer is one of those women that I look up to dearly. She was my Young Women leader when I was 16 and I have learned so much from her. When we had scripture study that night (me reciting a scripture as we were laying in bed) it was Mosiah 4:9-10 and Michele says, "That's our problem, we talky talky talky, no doey doey doey-- amen." She gets a little crazy when it's late, hence her girls camp nickname 'Crazy Lady.'

We had a hoot shopping downtown!! Best pick up line from the man on the street: "I have a hole in my heart, how did you three get out?" And then my mom's best quotes from the trip, "You know you're a spoiled brat right?" Yes mom, I know. And "Ok I have to admit I got a little teary eyed when they were saying goodbye to each other-- yes I got teary eyed in Wicked." Great moments.

But mostly I loved it because I got to spend some needed quality time with my mom.

Have I mentioned that she is my best friend? And that she is GORGEOUS? I can tell her anything and everything and she always knows what to say. In the past I haven't listened to her very much and there was a time when I didn't like talking to her. I looked back in my journal last night from September of 2011 when my mom was helping me through some real hard times including a broken wrist, heart, and shoulder, and I wrote this in some wonderful left-handed writing "My mom is my best friend. Why didn't I talk to her last year? I was so dumb!" I hope I never take her for granted ever again. I know I'm not the best listener sometimes and I definitely have my stubborn moments (I know big surprise), but I love her so much. Especially our random break out dance sessions after movies, in the kitchen, and just when we're having fun together.

My Gorgeous Mom and Me

I Love my Wonder Woman Mom! Even though she probably won't read this... Sorry for being a stupid teenager the past 7 years. Thanks for always being there. I look up to you so much--and always will.

I Am...

I love learning and traveling all over. I love meeting new people and being outgoing. Most of all I love being grateful and service those around me. I'm kind of hard core--just to warn you. I play rugby for BYU, mountain bike, and I hunt with my dad. I love my family and would do anything for them. Basically... I love life.

What's in my head?

Hunter Hayes-Wanted-
I wanna wrap you up
Wanna kiss your lips
I wanna make you feel wanted
I wanna call you mine
Wanna hold your hand forever
And never let you forget it
Yeah I, wanna make you feel wanted.
