City I was born in
Place I want to Visit
So there you go...essentially my life in random pictures. I'm just sorry I couldn't figure out how to make some of them bigger. Anyway I'm going to tag Kristi, Keah and Karen to give this a try. You'll be surprised just how much fun it is :)

Well I finally got to meet my niece Hannah today. She's pretty dang cute if I do say so myself, however I may be a bit biased :) After some serious finageling I was finally able to get a hold of Catherine and we agreed to meet up in Victoria park for a bit and I could come meet Hannah and Catherine (and her brother Chris, his wife Ann Marie and thier daughter Hailey). It was all some good times until the thunder storm hit. Thankfully Chris had some Umbrellas in his car and we took shelter until the worst of it passed. Hannah and Hailey were adorable and fun to watch, and it was good to actually sit down and talk with my soon to be sister in Law :)
Here's miss Hannah sitting under the Umbrella. She looks a lot like my dad in this picture. Catherine and I were joking that it's due to the lack of hair... Oh well...mom said none of us ever had any hair either until we were over a year.
This one might just be my favorite! We're both smiling (I couldn't seem to get any where Hannah would smile when the camera was actually taking pictures)
This is Catherine, Chris, Ann Marie, Hailey and Hannah. All Huddled under Umbrellas due to the Thunderstorm. Actually the rain felt really nice! :)This is what Hannah looks like if you sing Skinamirrinkidink. (Really not sure how you spell that one...you know, "I love in the morning and in the afternoon, I love you in the evening and underneath the moon...") It's her favorite song. She laughs everytime!

I did however get an exciting piece of mail Today. My friend Jamie (yes I'm sure some of you know her) is getting married and she thoughtfully sent me a wedding invitation. I LOVE getting wedding invitations. It may seem weird as I really am not a fan of wedding receptions (all I have to say is anyone who's still single can probably relate) however I just LOVE wedding invitations. I don't know what it is about them. I love looking at all the different styles and types even if I can't go. That being said, my roomate and I have a board that we've affectionally named the wall of shame. (We're just Jealous.) After I put up Jamies wedding invitation I took a picture so that you could all see.
This particular board is about two seasons old...meaning invites from 2007 and 2008. The invites are 3 deep :) Everytime one of us gets a new wedding invitation we excitedly pin it to the board. And we ALWAYS notice when a new one goes up :) So yep, that's it. My news for the week. So if you're reading this and getting married, I would love an invite. Even if you don't really want me there :)

The Pageant was just as cool as it always is, and then we had to go meet the rest of our group so that we could head over to the YSA dance at the Palmyra stake center. So we`re just standing there waiting and these two guys come over and ask if we`re YSA, to make a long story short they end up being from California, working in Long Island and my dear room mate offers them a ride to the dance. Yep, that's right we literally picked up some random California guys. Thankfully they were pretty cool. I wish I had of taken a picture, but well...they were random guys :)
The Dance was pretty good...lots of people there (many of them HCP cast members that had snuck out) and then we had to head out to the camp we were staying at. Just for all of you out there who may have to plan some YSA activity in the future...do not pick a camp site an hour away from where your dance ends. Especially if no ones ever been there and it`s 2 in the morning, and if there`s anyone that has to get up at 6:30 to go to the temple the next morning...we got lost, and I went to bed at 4:30. Good times.
The next morning I was lucky enough to be able to do a session at the Palmyra Temple. It was BEAUTIFUL! There`s something really special about going to the temple in the place where it all began. (Just as a side note, if you ever go...try and get more then 2 hours of sleep the night before.) I absolutely love the temple, and I`m extremely grateful for the chance I had to go. There`s even a clear window that looks out over the Sacred Grove!
After the Temple we hit up the Sacred Grove. I have to admit it`s pretty much my favorite place to go in Palmyra. (Well, after the temple). It`s good to go see the frame house, and the log house, and the printing press, but nothing beats the grove. I absolutely love the feeling of peace you get sitting in there. I didn`t want to leave. I could have cheerfully stayed there all day!

2) The Gospel
3) family and friends
2) Being alone forever
1) Enjoying life
2) Loving work
3) Attending the Temple every month.

2) Reading The Great and Terrible Series by Chris Stewart
3) Gummi bears
1) The first time I ever did my own family history work at the Temple, I got so sick on the way back that they had to give me a blessing in the back of a van to get me to stop throwing up!
2) I'm a house hermit. I hate going out. I would rather stay home most of the time.
3) I'm not good at Delegating...I'd rather do everything myself and know it's done right then trust someone else!
Ok so I tag Kristine and Karen. You girls are up next :)

So I've decided I pretty much stink at this whole blogging thing. Which is really not surprising seeing as how it was always the same for me with Journal writting. I'm pretty much lucky If I remember to update once a month!!!
Yeah, so I totally went Canoeing yesterday, which I have to admit was pretty fun. It felt super good to be on the water (I Don't get the chance for that very often here) even if the water was absolutely disgusting, which is evidenced by the above photographs...
On a side note I'm super excited as my niece is coming to London! Yep, thats right, She's coming here...which means I don't have to go home this summer, which will save me a TON on money!
Also, I'm still car shopping...which is ridiculous as it's been like 2 months. I just can't get my act in gear! Oh well what can you do right?

"'Don't be an Idiot' is the greatest advice I've ever received. I think to myself, would an idiot do that? And if the answer is yes, I don't do it."
Well that and about a dozen other amazing quotes. If you've never watched the Office I would highly recommend doing so. You'd be in for some great laughs.
Also I've started reading The Host by Stephenie Meyer. I don't know if any of you have started that one yet, but please let me know what you think about it. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. I'm only half done though! I'm thinking I don't like it as much as the Twilight series.
Thats pretty much all I have this weekend...well that and I saw Prince Caspian the new Narnia movie, which was GREAT! I'm still doing the car shopping...which I hate. I can't make up my mind, and when I think I've decided I change it again. Anyway I hope all is well with anyone reading this :) Have a great long weekend!

I don't know how well you can read that, however essentially, the town of St Thomas errected a Statue of an Elephant that got hit by a train. No joke. An Elephant really got hit by a train...and they really made a statue to commerate this. So here's our Jumbo Pictures...
So there you go...Good times with Jumbo the Elephant. There's just nothing like a good road trip!
P.S. Car Shopping = Blech!
