Life in the city (park and salt lake)

The Natural History Museum in SLC is actually amazing. 
I took the little rascals I nanny today, and I really loved it. The architecture isn't bad either. 

SLC is so pretty right now. It was 83 degrees today and I really liked it. 
Also my own ride as a nanny;)

I got to shoot some pictures for my dad's COMPANIES website.
 I have also been living in my new Birkenstocks. Best splurge ever. Not kidding. 
And I also love my boy's sweater :)

A pretty fire place I found on Main Street today. 

I got to skype with my Missionary on Sunday, and it was so much fun to see him and talk to him. He is doing so well. I am so amazed with all of his progress and hard work. I am so grateful for him. Sometimes I am really sad he is gone. but I just look forward to hearing from him every week!! (sometimes twice a week) so it is ok. 15 months to go. (Does it ever get better???) I LOVE TAY BRAND. Even still after 9 months ;)
Life has been good to me. I am very thankful and happy.

San Francisco


One of my fav pics 
Purple tie. 
I got a surprise package from Wisconsin last night which came after a moment of crying for no reason.(That is happening to me a lot lately...) It was perfect timing and it was just what I needed. I have been working two times a week with a doctor to heal this body of mine. He put me on this cleanse, it is a total body cleanse, and it is 21 days. Diet, supplements, drinks and all. It has made me an emotional wreck, filled with all of the weird things that happens to people bodies when they are getting rid of toxins. Not to mention I started it on my time of the month (timing) and so the emotions are just magnified and so even the littlest things are making me cry. Like it is lame guys.

I also started my new live in nanny job here in PC, and let me tell you, props to all of you mothers because I am exhausted by the end of the day. Like no energy (the cleanse isn't helping...) and holy, I just don't know how ya'll do it.

Annnnyway. Back to the story. So Tay has been out 9 months yesterday!!! I can't believe it. It is flying by. I get to skype him this sunday and I can't wait!! Oh man I love my Tay. I have no idea what I would be doing without him. So he sent me a package, mainly because I am going to Switzerland, so he wanted to send me something before I left. He sent me a Milwaukee Brewers T Shirt (his old one... I love) a San Francisco 49ers blanket, (two reasons for this, it's his favorite team, and we have both decided we are going to move there sometime in the very near future, I decided last summer that SF was my favorite City, and luckily Tay doesn't mind it either, so if things work out like we are planning on them, we will live there :). and some other stuff. I feel spoiled and loved and I couldn't ask for a better love on a mission.

I never really mention that I have a missionary, and I don't know why. I love him and miss him every day.

I hope you are all doing well. Thanks for reading my sob story.

kar kar

a bazillion things on my mind.

I love this little thing going around the blogging world so I wanted to give it a go :)
I don't know why this pic, but it just makes me happy, and I could use a little extra of that in my life. 
Making: Mothers Day Cards :) (and smoothies, I have been living off of those)
Cooking: I wish I had time to cook more :(
Drinking: 80 oz of water a day. I have to pee constantly, and it is so annoying/so healthy.
Reading: HOPE ENGAGED. She writes so beautifully and her blog isn't superficial.
Wanting: To heal and love this body of mine. 
Looking: forward to Switzerland!! It is going to be a dream and I am soooooooo excited. 
Wishing: That I was able to be more vulnerable, and open up to people more. But it's really hard for me. 
Enjoying: Fresh Air
Liking: Someone who is far away from me. 
Wondering: What the rest of this year will bring. 
Loving: My mom. She is my biggest supporter. (and the best shopping partner there ever was)
Hoping: That I made the right choice, and that everything will work out. 
Marveling: At spring time. Our God created a pretty spectacular earth
Needing: My love. But that will have to wait 15 more months. (I sound needy)
Wearing: If it is comfortable I wear it. (elastic waist pants only, especially Lulus and workout clothes.)
Following: Actually unfollowing. I had to do a following cleanse. For my own sanity.
Noticing: That sometimes I let my phone be more important than the people around me. NEVER OK. (hence the unfollowing cleanse)
Knowing: There is a God who loves me. Sometimes that is the only thing I need. 
Thinking: I should probably go eat dinner.
Feeling: Very stressed, overwhelmed and Anxious for some reason. HASHIMOTOS does weird things to me and it makes me sad. 
Opening: Tay's letters. Nothing better. and packages from online shopping, those are fun too :)
Giggling: I don't want to sound negative, but I haven't giggled in a while. I have so much to be thankful for but all of my anxiety puts this cloud over me that makes me not as quick to laugh as usual. 

This is my version of opening up to all of you lovely readers right now. I want to write down my struggles and share them with you, but I have to really understand them before I do that. 
Hashimotos affects me much more than I thought. At first it was a whirlwind of years of stomach issues and feeling sick, and now it is me having daily anxiety attacks (I hate admitting that) and sleepless nights because I worry about everything and anything. I will be working with a doctor two times a week for 6 months to heal my body. I am very grateful that I found him or I don't know what I would have done. I have felt stress before, but never like this. This is taking it to a whole new level. 
Sorry if this seems like a post full of complaints. But I do have struggles. Just like everyone else.

I know things will work out. Heaven help me find it. I want to be back to my normal happy self.

Park City Prom

Cute friends

^^I'm proud to say I did that hair for Lola.

So fun that my little sister is at her first prom right now. Time flies!!
Hope you are all having a nice weekend.

A print for my room about someone I kinda like


As I mentioned before, I am going to be a nanny this upcoming year for a family that was 2 boys and one on the way. I have already been their nanny/ babysitter for about a year and a half now, but things just got official and I have an amazing job as a live in nanny up here in Park City. I have the cutest room that I get to decorate as well. It is a win win win. 
My missionary and I have a little saying every time we close our letters, it is P.S. I love you more. 
It is our little thing. I know I know, we are just the cutest (kidding) but I made this cute little print to hang in my new room! I can't wait to show you what else I am doing to make that little space my own! 

Also, 30 days until SWITZERLAND!!! Unreal.
