Mind Games

So I did this crazy diet and I lost a bunch of weight but yesterday I was realizing no matter how much the scale goes down everyday it bugs me that I get on the scale. I used to not care like I'd go running or do what I want to lose weight not starve myself but standing on a scale everyday made me very depressed. It made me feel guilty when I ate a bite of something not on the restricted diet and if I ate something not on that list I had a strong urge to throw it up (don't worry I didn't) But I'd never really felt that way about my body. Yeah I was depressed because other girls got the attention sometimes but overall I was happy. And so to those who do crazy diets, don't. They totally mess with you. Don't weigh yourself every day. It gets you in a very unhealthy mentality. Just be happy with what God gave you and perfect it in healthy ways.

Lauren and Aaron had Aidan Alexander Barnes Sunday morning at 1:15 AM. He is 7lbs 1oz and super adorable. He's such a cutie and I can't wait to squeeze him.
After spending a long night in the hospital with them I am finally home resting for a couple minutes before church. yay life.

Childish loves

I know it's for teenagers but I have to tell you my favorite song at the moment. It's "Kissing U" by Miranda Cosgrove. It's amazing. Here's the link :-) Go listen to it and let your childhood dreams rush back to your memory :-)

Also I love her other song "About You Know" I don't know why I love her...if you watch the music videos you get a little turned off but I just like them...they're good songs to dance around and be crazy to :-)

Wow, it has been such a long time since I've written a blog. I need to catch everyone up on my life!
Well pretty much school is school. Write papers go to class be extremely bored drive home lovely stuff goin on there. I have a great friend that goes to the BC with me that I actually just met this semester. His name is Rob. He's become my favorite person lately. We call each other "BC Besties" Yeah stop laughing. He's actually awesome great friend I got there. :-) We actually met in my IT class, Jourdan and I got there a little bit late so there were no chairs...well there were chairs just none next to each other. So Rob moved over and let us sit by each other. Then he creepily added us on Facebook... then we became BC Besties. The end. Great story.
Um in other news... I QUIT KARAS! Wooo! I now work at Utah Valley Pediatrics. I'm loving it. I work with Jamie, my roommate. And we are receptionists along with 4 other lovely people. It's been great for me. I work a lot more, normal hours too so I have an actual schedule.
Okay so a lot of other things have happened and if I ever get in gear I'll post individual blogs about the cool things I've done this Summer. But I just wanted to share this cute quote that I saw yesterday. "Missionary: Someone who leaves their family for a short period of time so that others can be with their families for eternity" It made me feel a lot better about Garret and all my other missionary friends that I am currently missing. They are only gone from us for a short time. And they are blessing others with the great blessing of being able to be sealed to their families for eternity.
