Not a very fun week!

Last Wednesday, I had to get a cyst removed near my tailbone....a pain in the butt, literally! To my dismay, they went in and found that it was bigger and deeper than they thought. So as a result, I've been drugged up on pain medications the past couple of days. I will admit though, it has been quite nice to sit around and totally relax! I've been feeling better but have had some problems from the anesthesia. So I'm just hoping that I will be up and going for my trip Friday.

One year down!

So, today Brad hits his 1 year mark for his mission! Woohoo! I can't believe he's already been gone a year....boy how time flies. I'm so glad it's this time this year instead of this time last year when I was a crying mess! He is doing just great though! He's so happy and has grown so much. He's been such a faithful writer, and I love getting his letters and hearing about how he's doing and the experiences he's having. Right now he's in a suburb of Perth called Scarborough and has a great companion-they really get along well! They've had a lot of success lately and had about 6 or 7 investigators at church, so he was really excited. I'm so proud of him and how hard he's working and how well he's doing! He's such a good example to me and always makes me want to be better. Dating was different this year.... I would compare everyone to him and no one has quite matched up yet! So I've heard that the 2nd year goes by much faster, and hopefully before I know it he'll be home :).

David Archuleta....YOU hold the key to my heart <3

So for those of you American Idol lovers out there...this is a seriously crucial time in the competition, it's the finale! Tonight Archuleta and Cook went head to head in the last show before tomorrow night's results. And I think Simon said it best when he stated that tonight was a "knockout" (meaning that Archuleta crushed Cook). He was amazing!! I was truly in love. Not only do I think he has a beautiful voice, but he's always so humble about what the judges say and seems so grateful for positive feedback. I think he should be the American Idol of 2008! So much so that I voted 135 times for him :). It's not that I don't like David Cook...I really do think he's talented-but I just like David Archuleta so much more! Needless to say...there will be tears shed tomorrow night whatever the results may be. So GOOD LUCK DAVID ARCHULETA! I'M ROOTING FOR YA!

I love taking pictures! It's always great to look back at pictures and remember the fun times I've had. Whenever I'm with my family, I try to get us all to take family pictures...but the boys usually aren't up for it! Today I told Chris that I wanted us to go outside and take pictures, and finally after some moaning he complied to my wishes! These are just some of the pictures we took of each other.

So after much convincing from my roommates, I decided to read the hit book Twilight. I decided it would probably be a good idea to wait until I had a blocked out amount of time so I could read the book as quickly as I wanted. That was a smart idea! I fell in love with this book! After finishing today I am simply and totally in love with the story and more importantly the super hot vampire, Edward!! Holy smokes...why can't all boys be like him. He's so attractive, sweet, caring, tender and totally in love with Bella. I told my roommate Audrey that I'm in love with a fictional character, which does sound kinda pathetic....but if you've read the book you know what I mean. I just can't understand how someone can be so perfect, and is it humanly possible to find someone like Edward? Probably not since he's a vampire...which might I add makes him even hotter! I will keep my hopes high. I plan on starting New Moon tonight and am worried that I'll become totally engrossed in this book too! My eyesight got a little weird after so many hours of reading...haha. But for those of you who maybe haven't read this book, I would totally recommend's truly amazing!
