So...when did the Biebs become a rapper?
I found this gem surfin' youtube and what. the. heck.
I don't know how I feel about this.

Alright, the chorus is catchy.
But what's with the fondue?
I hate fondue.

I'm sorry JB, maybe next time you can be my boyfriend.

yellow tie & purple flowers

Yesterday's wedding was beautiful and so much more fun than expected since the bride and groom were hysterical and so adorable together. They even knew my name and the three of us joked about how awkward it was that when they kissed each other, I was usually two feet away fixing the bride's hair, veil or train and buttoning up the groom's jacket.  We became closer friends that way.

They not only were so cute but heck, they will make beautiful children. Both of them were STUNNING and I caught myself staring and smiling at them a few times. What was the best, was when I caught the groom doing the exact same thing, staring and smiling at his brand new wife. It made me envious for what they had. Someone to laugh and joke with, to hold hands with, a groom to dance like an idiot in high heels with and a bride to smile at from a distance.

They had each other, together for eternity.

And I was having the time of my life helping out and joking with the couple and their families.

ps. If you ever want to make new friends, I suggest you get up real close to them and hold up a reflector while they kiss for the photographer. You'll become friends in no time. Promise.

safe & sound

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe & sound...

dear u of u students in the library

If you heard two girls laughing hysterically today, that was us.

We're not apologizing for acting like high school students, playing MASH or Facebook stalking.

We're just letting y'all know how cool we really are.

Yes, we are both in our twenties, in college AND single.

Go us!
Paige & Lindsay

quote of the day

“It isn't as bad as you sometimes think it is.
It all works out. Don't worry.
I say that to myself every morning. It all works out in the end.
Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future.
The Lord will not forsake us. He will not forsake us.
If we will put our trust in Him, if we will pray to Him,
if we will live worthy of His blessings,
He will hear our prayers.”    

-President Gordon B. Hinckley

all i want

I used to be angry.

Angry that the plans for my future with my best friend, together forever, was no longer a possiblilty. Angry that I was no longer going to live happily ever after with him. Angry that I am now alone and more vulnerable than ever. Angry that whatever I do, I cannot shake the physical, mental and emotional hurt I have been dealing with for the past month. Angry that everytime I try to open my mouth to speak, it hurts so bad I have to cry. Angry that everything reminds me of him. Angry that my life is going NO WHERE.

Until now.

I was blessed to be called his for such a short period of time. I have learned so much about myself and how to be more Christ-like through the examples Chaseton had shown me, every single minute I was by his side. I am so grateful that I was able to have him in my life. There were days I couldn't believe that such a wonderful man could have ever fallin for such a simple girl like me. So I thank Heavenly Father for blessing me with Chaseton walking into my life for that short moment, for the opportunity to be with him, to learn from him and to love him.

I am still hurting. "A broken heart will only mend with time"   is what I've been told. But I know a broken heart cannot mend completely. There will always be a piece missing. A piece taken by the one that stole your heart in the first place. They will take it and no matter how hard you try to get it back or try to replace it with something else, it will always be theirs.

I am still hurting but I am not angry. Although I cannot live happily ever after with my best friend, I know that he will find someone who can. Someone who is beautiful in every way, who will make him happier than I ever could and who is worthy enough to be his.

And that is why I am not angry.

He will be happy and that's all I want.
