day 13 your favorite musician(s) and why?
michael buble ... what a cutie.. i love his voice.. and his style of music. it's just really.. attractive and very easy to listen to.
natasha bedingfield ... i love her music. it has such a great message to it.
what girl doesn't like taylor swift? pretty sure i listen to her music on a weekly.. if not daily basis.
i have a lot of other musicians that i really like.. it's always so hard to choose favorites!

day 12 a photograph of the town you live in.
i am from a town called vermillion, sd. i have lived there all my life..
(minus the college part) and i actually really like this little south dakotan town.
it has a little over 10,000 people..
but also the university of south dakota is located in vermillion
... so the students make the population grow a little bit.
vermillion is located right next to the missouri river. . a kind of gross river. i can't believe i actually swam in there!
also, lewis and clarke found spirit mound near vermillion!!
day 11 what's in your makeup bag?
well.. i am just going to tell you about my favorite eye shadow... which happens to be victoria secret. i just love the color, the look, and the last. it's not that expensive either.. if i were you.. i would totally check it out. i love it!

day 10 a photo of your favorite place to eat.
yes, this is our porch at my house in south dakota... and yes this is my favorite place to eat. i love eating with my family. they just crack me up so much. they're a riot. i miss eating with them... because i absolutely love it.
what are my home cooked favorite meals you ask?
my dad's freshly made hamburgers on a hot summer day.
my mom's enchiladas and her yummy fajitas
fresh blt's mmmm...so good
my dad's homemade pizza
eating as a family is so important... and fun!
ps. of course i had to post a picture of our beautiful backyard. i think we have one of the prettiest backyards in the state of south dakota. what do you think? also.. if you look and see the mountains in the distance.. that's nebraska!

day 8 a song to match your mood.
i chose this song because i finally told my parents and my family that i am not going to be moving back to south dakota for the summer. i am staying here(rexburg, idaho) or moving to utah. it's hard because i know how much i love being
around my family and they mean the world to me. they really do. i love my parents soo, so much and they are literally like my best friends. i love my brother and his fiance sara (who are getting married on may 28th!) and i am so, so excited for them to begin their life in vermillion, sd. i love my family at home. i love my dogs and i love my friends. but.. i .. i almost feel like i have grown into an adult here.. i have become who i am.. and i just love all of my friends. my roommates are literally like my sisters. i love each of them SOO much. i am growing up. i am holding leadership positions and i have responsibilities. weird right? but it's true... to me, at this point.. it doesn't make sense for me to just leave
everything and move back home for a couple months. and it's hard.. it's hard to talk to my dad about it... because it's hard to tell him that i am growing up... it's hard to tell
him i'm not eighteen anymore... and that i'm only visiting home this time. .. but.. i know it's the right decision. .. and that doesn't mean i will always be happy i made the decision.. and that doesn't mean that i won't miss being with my family at home over the summer...and it doesn't mean that it will be simple.. .. but it does mean that i've taken the initiative to maybe.. perhaps.. almost.. become...dare i say it?.. grow up and become an adult.
(my daddy and i..isn't he the sweetest?)
(jameson, my brotha.)
and mom and dad, if you are reading this.. i love you.. and i will always be your little hopper. thank you for your support .. and your battle... for in your questions and thoughts my eyes are opened and i start viewing things in a different light. sometimes i realize i am being an idiot.. sometimes my choices and ideas get validated ... but always it shows me how blessed i am to have two wonderful parents who love me and care for me.. and just want to see me do what's right. thanks for being there.. and willing to put up with my stubbornness... and i want you to know.. i cherish the times we spend together.. and the examples you are to me... and sometimes.. it's true. . i wish i'd never grown up and would have the luxury of giving you the biggest hugs everyday.
i love you.
never grow up - taylor swift.

day 7 your dream wedding.
my dream wedding... hmmm.
i have always wanted an outdoor wedding.. a summer wedding. i want all my family and friends to come together and celebrate and have just the greatest time. my dream wedding would include lots of laughter, smiles, and great memories. my outdoor wedding reception will have tones of tables and lights draping over the area. there will be a dance floor.. a big one. (everyone will be required to dance). their will be lanterns and flowers and bubbles and fun stuff for everyone.
also, my dream wedding would include a temple marriage. i want to get married in a temple (who knows which one?) for time and all eternity. i've included pictures of some temples that i think are just so gorgeous. directly below is a picture of the sealing room in the manti, utah temple. isn't sooooo beautiful? the bride and groom kneel at the alter and receive a blessing upon their marriage in which lasts through all eternity... as in.. forever!... none of this "til' death do we part".
here are some pictures of beautiful temples.. or houses of the Lord.
i love this style. here are pictures of what i want my wedding reception to look like... a beautiful, fun, outdoor wedding.
