I've got a feeling... 04/14/2010
That the past two nights were good nights. ;] In fact, they were better than good, they were greaaaat!! Last night came with a visit from my cute dad =] it was so fun! He brought me groceries from my momma than we sat and talked for a while. I miss that old man while I'm here in B-Town!
teehee =] that picture of him makes me giggle!
Then tonight was spent with Miss Aubree we dined at Olive Garden and ate these bad boys
If you have never had their Italian doughnuts, you are missing out on life my friend. haha they were soo good! =] Then I went and saw her new STORE! Yeah, she's my hero! 19 and opening the cutest boutique in Nampa. I'm in total awe of everything she's doing right now! Girl is a beast! Then we drove around being way too silly and doing some sneaky secret things...teehee ;]
It was a blast! =]
Here's some random Wednesday inspiration for you. =]

To Write Love on Her Arms 04/10/2010
There are certain topics that hit home hard. I worked very hard for many years on the anti-tobacco advocacy and after writing my next speech for communications about depression and suicide I decided it is about time I got involved in helping in any way I can. Depression is one that really hits home because I myself have struggled with it and about half of my family struggles with it. Way too many people are unaware of the seriousness of it and I realized that it's time for me to help educate more than just my speech class. I am going through the process of applying to get a chapter at BSU of To Write Love on Her Arms- a nonprofit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. Each issue is incredibly important to me as I have been affected by all of them- not all directly, but by other people I know who have struggled with addiction and self-injury and by people I know who saw no other way out except suicide. I am hoping beyond all hope that I will be able to start this chapter up and get others involved and educated. This is something I am incredibly passionate about and I want to be able to get involved as much as I possibly can. I would love your support in this new and important step I hope to be able to take. I'll be sure to keep you all up to date as things happen. It's going to be a crazy adventure and I'm so excited to feel that high I get from knowing I'm helping make a difference, even if it's just one person I touch. It's insane how loud one voice can be. I learned that from my time spent with the Magic Valley Tobacco-Free Coalition. Even if the chapter at BSU doesn't happen, I want to be able to help out in anyway I can. I sincerly urge you to get involved in something like this as well. =] Visit http://www.twloha.com/move to find out how you can help out or get involved with TWLOHA. Don't ever underestimate the impact you can have on others. Get educated about important issues like depression. Learn as much as you possibly can. Knowledge is power. And last but definately not least, don't judge what you don't understand, just love. =]
Thank you all for taking the time to read about something this important to me. I love you all for it =]
Inspiration Friday 04/09/2010
I have been in the biggest waredrobe lull so here's some lovely inspiration for new outfits I'm lusting after from two incredibly inspiring ladies- Amanda from Indie Jane and Katie from Skunkboy Creatures, and some music to go along with them that I've been listening to all day long =]
Huge, huge style crush on both of them. My goodness. Hope you were inspired as well =]
Have a great Friday! Mine will be spent trying to sleep and do homework. boo!
You Should... 04/09/2010
Listen to the CD Storyboards by Sleeping at Last. They were giving it away free for a couple days and I was lucky enough to snag a copy for myself and it is beautiful music. Very calming and inspiring. Check them out here, here, and here. It's very different from what I normally listen to, but I think it's incredible music and his voice has a very calming affect to it. Maybe it's just me that thinks that ;] but check them out for yourself!
What's really neat about the above music video is if you click the little tab that says "Track 2" in the bottom right corner it takes you to the next track on the album. It has that on all of the songs so you can hear the entire album =] Hope you enjoy!
Done =] 04/08/2010
