I need to paint my nails.

I am embarrassed to report that I haven't painted my nails in at least three weeks. EW! Is this what being a grown up means? That I don't have the time/energy to paint my nails?

So here I am, laying on the couch listening to T.Swift's new CD and the thought crossed my mind, "dang Taylor, how many guys can you possibly love in the span it took to write this album?" Its like she loves every boy she talks to. Or maybe any boy that talks to her. But either way, her CD is legit and I'm excited to hear the song she writes about her and Jake Gyllenhaul's break up.

I've been oddly obsessed with the Elizabeth Smart trial going on right now in SLC. That creeper who kidnapped her is being tried right now, but he is seriously so weird. He keeps going to court and singing hymns really loud so that they have to remove him. He is TRYING to look insane but he knows exactly what he did! ewwww.

This weekend was fun! Ally came down from Idaho and we got to have some sister time! I love you Ally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well I should go, I have a mountain of clothes to hang up and it's getting worse and worse by the day and I'm sure Jon hates me for it (but he would never say it)

Tis' the Season

I am a holiday LOVER! As the weather is getting brisk and the snow is trying to fall, the holidays are just around the corner.. I will be listening to Christmas music starting right after Turkey day. And I can hardly wait! :) This Christmas will be a little different since I won't be with my parentals, or my sweet siblings, but I will be celebrating with Jon's side of the fam. I am excited to see their traditions and spend quality time with them! Jon and I will make the trek to New Jersey to be with my side of the family next year :)

I must comment on Conan. Holla on him being back. I am sad to admit that today as I sit on the couch it will only be the second epi that I've watched of my favorite tall red-headed man, but I promise I'm still a fan. (It's just been a really busy week, alright?!) But I'm glad he is back and loving his new gig!

I got called into the Young Women's presidentcy in my ward and man is it a BUSY bee calling. There are meetings, and activities ALL THE TIME! But I'm excited to work with the young women of the ward and I am starting to really appreciate all the hard work that my leaders did growing up to help me become a better person.

Hm, what else?

Sometimes Jon pretends he's in a boy band. My favorite is when he sings primary songs in the mirror while dancing like J.Timberlake. Or when he sings me songs in the car on our journeys. He's cute.

I'm also starting to have nightmares about being a teacher. November 29th is just around the corner and then I'm going to be the sole person responsibile to teach those little jems the things they need to know to go on to second grade. AH. Keep me in your prayers.

All my love.

I'm a REAL Teacher! :)

SO guess what? I'm a real teacher. I accepted a position to be a 1st grade teacher in Salt Lake! I am SO excited. I start RIGHT AFTER student teaching ends. I am still in shock. Heavenly Father is definitely watching over Jon and I and we are so grateful.

I am going to miss my little 4th graders. Only two more weeks with them :( it's going to be sad to say goodbye.

But all in all, I'm very lucky. :)
