Much needed.

I really needed this, so of course I somehow came across it last night. Maybe you need it too...

Oh then despise not, and wonder not, but hearken unto the words of the Lord, and ask the Father in the name of Jesus for what things soever ye shall stand in need. Doubt not, but be believing, and begin as in times of old, and come unto the Lord with all your heart, and work out your own salvation with fear and trembling before him.

Mormon 9:27

Upon moving to my new casita, I discovered a nike shoe box titled "Sara's Memories". Inside this fancy little treasure chest was an array of different items. Among them a little gem titled: 


By: Sara Waddell

Naturally, I skim through this little gem of poetry and find an absolutely incredible number on page 19. There were a number of pathetic spelling errors, so clearly I changed those to allow you readers to actually understand what I was trying to say. Anyways, it is as follows:

Tiffani and I
(Free Verse)

A long time ago I met a girl named Tiffani.
I met her at a basketball draft.
They were putting together girls 
That went to the same school, 
And we were in the same group.
And I remember saying to her:
"Hey! You go to Colina, don't you?"
So I ran over and told her to come sit in our group.
She was pretty shy at first, 
But then she lighted up.
We became really good friends.
We also had a great style
And brought some nice trends to the school!
Well not really.
Our style was original and unique.
We were kind-of tomboys in fourth grade,
But we grew out of it.
When we played our basketball games, 
We would put a gallon of gel on the top of our head,
So our ponytail would be nice and slick.
Now-a-days Tiffani and I dress normal, 
And we have normal hair.

Wow. That is really something isn't it?! Its obvious that I grew up to become an English major...and clearly no poem I have ever written or ever will write will top this one...

I feel like I have nothing to share - but I do. It just doesn't seem too entertaining, so let's just get this over with...

I moved. 
Back to Tempe. 
No more late night drives back to Gilbert = fantastic.
No more Busby boy time = tragic.
I'll miss those little boogers...
My new roomies:
Four lovely ladies in my ward!
I am transitioning from four boys to four girls...
I will keep you posted on that sitch.

I got a new job. 
A "real" job. 
The whole sha-bang.
Forty hours a week. 
Business casual. 
With casual Fridays.
Co-workers that are all older than me.
I like it though.
I feel accomplished when I come home from a "long day at work".

Kristin and I had our first official photoshoot for B&D Photography!!
So much fun - that's a fact.
For those of you that may be confused - 
The D stands for Dell.
Check out our website.
Catch you later this week...
I promise I will have a good story for you then. :)
