Project Life

Project Life App...a definite life changer for me!

Over Thanksgiving I discovered the most amazing app ever!! It is called Project Life. It is simply amazing. I feel like it was designed specifically for me. (Obviously that's not true, but it certainly feels that way) I've always loved scrapbooking. It all started in high school. I did a young women's Personal Progress project where I created a scrapbook, documenting my life with pictures. Ever since then, I've been an avid scrapbooker. I've gone through many different phases of scrapbooking, but I've always loved it. Now I'm at a point in my life where I'm busier than ever and I don't see life slowing down anytime soon. That is why this app is perfect for me. I can create 12x12 scrapbook pages straight from my phone or iPad within minutes. I prefer the iPad because it's a little bit bigger. It makes it easier when I'm typing to see if I had any typos. But the phone is just as easy. I can l…

{I should've written this sooner. I started it right after Thanksgiving. But then life got crazy and I am just now finishing this (Dec. 31). Unfortunately I can't remember all of the details since I waited so long to write this. Lesson learned I guess.}
This year I spent Thanksgiving in Vegas at my sister Megan's house. I got out of school on Tuesday. I headed to St. George that night and spent the night at my parents' house. We drove down to Vegas on Wednesday and spent the day with Meg and her family. Then Thursday was Thanksgiving and we spent the day doing fun Thanksgiving things. We went to the park Thanksgiving morning. It was a really fun park, with lots of cool stuff. The kids had a blast! Then we went back to the house. Meg and Ryan made an amazing spread of food for dinner. It was yummy! It was of course delicious and we were all stuffed by the time dinner was over. 
We decided to do some online shopping that day, and we ended up not needing to go out. I was…

My sister Megan told me about this new website called Twice Clothing. They buy and sell awesome pre-loved clothing, purses, and more. I signed up and got all of these items below for $1 with the great promotions that they offer! They will only buy high-end brands and they have to be in top condition. So you know you are getting quality when you shop through them! They'll buy your used clothes and handbags too, and they've got a $20.00 promo going on right now, so try to take advantage of it if you can!

When I signed up, they gave me credit for downloading the app to each of my devices. I'm not sure if they're still doing this, but it's definitely worth checking out. That saved me lots of money! You can also like their facebook page to find coupons and deals. They also have a great return policy. When I received my items, one of the…

Sunday Ramblings...

Hello everyone! It has been quite a day today. Life seems crazy lately! I'm always on the go. If I'm not at school writing lesson plans and grading papers, then I'm out running errands. Every once in awhile I actually find the time to go hang out with some friends or attend a ward activity. I keep thinking to myself that life will slow down soon. But deep down I know that it won't. This is my life. This is how it is. I'm okay with that. I'd rather be too busy then too bored with life. I have so many wonderful things in my life. But sometimes I get to busy to remember that. As the holidays quickly approach us I want to remember that very thing...that I am blessed, so very blessed. 
Today as I sat in sacrament meeting, I heard a few quotes that really hit home for me: -God loves us just the way we are. But he loves us too much to let us stay that way.-Celebrate every little victory. I may not have done it perfectly but at least I did it. You are good enough!! Hap…

'Selfies'

Image
Here are a few 'selfies' from the last few months. I really enjoy documenting the moment. One of my favorite things to do is to look back at pictures/albums and think of the fond memories. I'm often alone so 'selfies' have become pretty common for me. 
But 'selfies' have taken a whole new meaning for me recently. About a month ago I was on a field trip with my students. We were hiking in the mountains looking for changes in the Earth (erosion, deposition, etc.). I was taking pictures galore so I'd have a little something to put on the class blog. As I was taking pictures I had a few students who kept jumping into the pictures. You always have those few who want to be in every picture. Last year my students were in love with 'photo bombing' each other haha. Silly kids. Anyway, we were near the end of the field trip. I put away my actual camera and pulled out my phone. I wanted to take a 'selfie' with the pretty leaves in the background. …
