Spin it.

I seriously hate it when I get so wrapped up in all the awesome things my class mates are doing on Facebook, that I forget I don't have to be jealous. Oh hey... my life right now is really cool too.

Just because someone else is really fabulous and doing a lot of cool things, doesn't make me less cool. That phrase is on repeat in my mind.

Wedding Bells...

I adore these photos! John and Mercedes are getting married in December and I get a little jittery thinking about it... I'm excited to go to a wedding after having my own, because now I pay a ton more attention to the details and all the planning that went into it... and enjoy it more, I think.

I'm also pretty pumped because Mercedes asked me to be a bridesmaid!


She did pick out the cutest bridesmaid dress. I am REQUIRED to buy a cute dress. I'll say yes to that. (from

Kudos to my sweet brother and sister-in-law to be. I am just so proud for them.

Back to the News

For school this semester, I'm working on four news stories. The first two stories are required to be "feature" stories, meaning not on crime on politics or "hard" news per say, but more fun subjects. My first story is basically following a pumpkin from the patch to the store, the farming process and all. Um... I guess that does sound a little boring... ha... I'm embarrassed.

But anyway, I felt like a fool because when I went to shoot the video on the pumpkin farm, I seriously had to walk 1/2 a mile into the pumpkin field with my camera and tripod! I looked like a real novice. But thankfully, the video turned out :)

And, I was lucky that my little nephew Ethan and his family paint pumpkins each year. That way I could interview him and get some shots of him and cute little Emma painting their stuff. I mean, how cute is his quote at the end?

I'm lookin around for ideas for my next story... any ideas?

I confess

Eek. I miss ballet so much. After I graduate, I secretly want to just work out every day, take open adult ballet classes, lose a ton of weight, and then try out for Salt Lake's ballet company, Ballet West in January 2014. I mean, I know its unrealistic and I know I'm really too old... but I want it. I want it. I want it.
