hum de dum

It's so easy to procrastinate when you have so much to do. WHY?

Let freedom ring

I really really really am overwhelmed right now. But really I just keep thinking...isn't this what being a mother will be like? Feeling like you have no time to yourself? Who knows, but I'm trying to keep the perspective that Heavenly Father is molding me to be more efficient and patient with my time. I am kinda waiting for freedom, but an institute class recently reminded me that really there is not final freedom. You are always waiting for something (school to end, to get a job, marriage, kids, retirement) and really life just goes on. It should always be busy.

Okay, confession time. I love the Delilah radio talk show. As sappy as it is, she is just trying to spread love. What's so bad about that? Anyways so she recited this anonymous poem that basically said:

I was dying to graduate public school
I was dying to graduate college
I was dying to get married
I was dying to have kids
I was dying to retire
Now I am dying and I realized...
I forgot to live.

As cheesy as it was, it was kinda profound and went with the Institute class lesson. Right now I am dying to get married, but in the process am I forgetting to live, to love, to laugh.

Anywho even though I want to be free, really I need to find the peace now. The peace the gospel can bring daily, not just Sunday or at institute. Bringing Heavenly Father into every aspect of my life. Gotta work on that.

I need to watch my own mouth sometimes.

And by sometimes I mean a lot of times.......

Quite Possibly

Today has been long. I feel like the days are getting longer. I feel like I can't fit EVERYTHING into my schedule. It is kinda freaking me out. Between work, school, institute, volunteering, and the wedding I am going to go insane. Oh. And my dress is too big. I think I am losing weight. Isn't that supposed to be the aspiration for every bride? Not me. I just want my dress to fit : (

I am going to see an alteration lady. I hope she can fix it.

I always have trouble getting to bed at night. I am obsessed with DIY wedding blogs.

Met with flower lady for wedding. SOOO excited.

I have lots of homework to do this morning because I did NONE this weekend. WHOOPSY......

Dear Nordstrom,

I love you. Ever since I have grown up I have wandered in your space oohing and ahhing at the many beautiful clothes you have to offer. Today you have offered me more than I have ever needed. My fiance came in looking for a suit for our wedding day and you provided. You always do. I know you can be expensive but it is okay when it is for something important, quality and that will be used until it erodes into ashes. The suit is beautiful and makes my fiance look dang good. Thank you Nordstrom's for your wonderful customer service, the knowledge that comes with your workers is invaluable. I would have never know to tell my fiance not to button the last button on the vest. But you did. Wonderful you. I love you Nordstrom. Somewhere in my house is that silly blue stuffed animal I got with my first pair of patent leather sunday shoes, that is why I love you.


For those of you who think Nordstrom is too expensive or ridiculous I say to you: don't buy the silly things but dig deep to the core of the store and you will find quality. Something that lacks in many stores today.

(this probably contradicts my previous post about retail work not being rewarding.....)
