According to the Love Languages book, I am a “babbling brook,”


so I think all I need is a “dead sea” who reads my blog, talks but not too much, is incredibly rich and successful, has great bone structure and deep-enthralling eyes, lives the gospel of Jesus Christ, has never had any sort of problem/trial/baggage whatsoever, and thinks I’m beautiful.  Now that’s not asking too much is it?  🙂

Oh, except I have learned to have a reservoir, to keep my mouth shut at times, to not always say what’s on my mind.  Still, I like to talk 🙂

I know boys sometimes find it annoying when girls talk about makeup, hair, clothes, etc.


but it’s hard not to when you love beauty and you also love expressing yourself!  Guy friends/boyfriend/future husband/sons, etc., will do my best to strike a happy medium with you, okay? 🙂

As for you boys, let us talk about it sometimes!  And for the love of Pete, PLEASE use a little tact.  I once had a boy tell me that my lips looked like, wait for it,  saturated urine (I kid you not).  Think he’s getting this girl’s sweet kisses anymore?  Nope.  Not even stealin’ ’em.  And also, I never said I was great with makeup.  Just that I LOVE IT!

But I also don’t NEED it!  I can keep my canvas of a face blank sometimes, particularly when I’m feeling lazy.

(and yes, I realize I’m wearing TONS of it in that picture.

Oh the biting irony that comes with being a wanna-be model for

LIP line of propriety, my boyfriend!

And you know I’m a fan of the color yellow, but come on now…


So back to the main point of this post (I like to bookend a lot!).


(click here for how I compare myself to Ms. Middleton)

Men and women can be very different, especially when it comes to their preferred topic of conversation (listen to this song, I LOVE IT!)  Some even suggest that they are from different planets {Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus}).  But despite all this…

We CAN get along, we CAN learn to compromise sometimes, and we can make it work!

“The course of true love never did run smooth”

The gospel of Jesus Christ is for everyone.

It’s not just those crazy stories about porn addict turns temple president  (We ain’t all Saul-to-Paul or Alma the Younger gets a rude awakening). It’s for people like me: Miss Mormon girl to the max, does everything right and keeps all the rules, and life falls apart at 25.  No matter who you are, no matter your situation, you can rise out of the ashes, find meaning, and be happy.  If you’re interested, you can chat with missionaries here.  Or just email/comment if you wanna talk.  Dead serious.

Ambivalent feelings toward fame and recognition

is a theme that good artists often explore.  As I see myself becoming a famous writer in the future (truth in jest), I imagine I will have to give this idea some thought.  Haha, but whether or not I ever get a single hit again, I find this a fascinating topic.  So for now, let’s just hear what Miss Natasha has to say about it.  And it’s hard for lyrics to stand out when they’re all good, but here are some notable ones:

“thirsty in a desert with a bag full of gold,

what I thought was precious was just a pile of stones”

Read ALL the lyrics here.

A phrase I’ve said to people more than once in the past week…

*Pacing myself, people.

*Don’t get your hopes up or put all your eggs in one basket, but this is America-DREAM BIG!

*fine line between arrogance and confidence, doing the best I can…

*and no, still haven’t been paid anything……YET (looking into that)

My Shadow Days are Over Now.

9 months ago I was in a deep, dark black hole. 

Lyrics here. 

I’m a good girl with a good heart.

Had a tough time.  Got a rough start.

But my shadow days are over now.

there just might be light at the end of the tunnel.

Empty Chairs at Empty Tables…

Some day someone will be sitting across from me.  And we’ll share that sparking cider and he’ll tell me how beautiful I am and how good of bone structure I have 🙂

A new answer to an old question….

nowadays when people ask me “what are your hopes and dreams for the future?  I NO LONGER have to say, “Hopes and dreams for the future?  I just hope I don’t crash my car on the way to the grocery store tomorrow!”

My full answer remains to be seen.  But you can bet it’ll be a good one 🙂

me and Ryan Shupe

“Keep Your Head Up,” and you might just get a KISS!

My life and my purpose.  Is it all worth it?  You are gonna turn out fine. 



 Moments after this picture was taken Andy kissed me!  Partial lip/partial cheek kiss, but a kiss indeed.  And oh what a kiss it was.  I swore I’d never publicly divulge that information because I didn’t want to exploit Andy for his fame and envisioned an actual romantic future with him, but brother got himself a wife, that ship has sailed, a now cat’s outta the bag!  And yes, my sister can be a witness in court….
