i am still so undecided about things.
its not a negative thing though. not at all.
what is so absolutely amazing about being undecided is that i can literally do whatever i want. the fact that i GET the choice to either recieve a degree as a court reporter or pursue my dream of a career in culinary/ owning a restaurant.
heck, i can do both. easy as pie.
i can choose to move to California, i can stay here, or i can move to the snow (as i've been thinking about doing lately)
I have so many options and oportunities in front of me, i will never complain about the fact that i can't decide between two or three choices. i am truly blessed.
granted i could run out of time and "miss my train" when it comes to doing something but thats the way life goes, eh? i have enough faith in Christ to believe that even if i do miss it, its only making way for a greater oportunity.
signing off.

utterly, completely, shamelessly

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

thrills & chills

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
i might have said it one or two million times before but i am in love with this time of year.
seriously, in love
cheerful faces
holiday music
layers and layers of clothes
hot beverages
warm blankets
cuddly boyfriend
meaningful downtime
christmas movies
christmas cheer
christmas presents (both give & recieve)
hope for the future

i'd like to elaborate on the last one.
there's something about christmastime that motivates me beyond belief. i want to give lavish (but meaningful) gifts, do all the things i've been saving up on my "to-do" list before the new year, own a home, decorate it to my best abilities, make memories, keep old traditions and make new ones, spend time with my loved ones, build a stronger testimony of the Church and constantly keep a smile on my face.
even though school & work are extremely important and mean alot to me, these are the things that matter most in life and always will. i feel like the holidays leave such an open door to the things you can create. they give you the ability to take old traditions and make them your own. the most simple things become the most important. i strive to see the value of small things through out the year, its how i maintain my sanity haha
like right now i'm sitting in my chilly apartment with my wonderful roomates, my huge diet doctor pepper next to me, my laptop in front of me, christmas music playing and my December all planned out. finances, gifts, extra shifts, all that jazz, i got it covered!

i do want a few things thoughhh

many oversized sweaters

Thanksgiving has to be one of the most traditional holiday's celebrated, and i will honor that by not spending my day thinking of a clever blog/status to post. i'm just going to do what is expected, post a blog about what i'm thankful for, and hope that it reaches the ones i care about most.
I'm sitting here indian style in Bountiful, Utah, listening to christmas music with my hot chocolate between my legs, my blackberry on my knee and my laptop resting on the bed that my grandma Voorhees provided for me. my sister is on the bed next to me, Klay is in the next room, and grandma, grandpa, mom, dad, brendan are all through out this gorgeous (but humble) household.
i'm so thankful for everything, great and small, that i have been blessed with. I am so lucky to belong to such a wonderful church and have the testimony that i do. I'm thankful for all the knowledge that i have acumulated throughout my life, whether from school, church, friends, family or my every day experiences.
i'm thankful for the people in my life, and the joy that their presence brings to me. I am given so much and i only hope to do the same for others.
i'm thankful for the holiday season and the chance it gives me to grow close to those that mean the most to me, including my Heavenly Father.
i'm thankful for the job i have and the people i work with.
i'm thankful for my roommates, my apartment and the fact that my parents still live close enough to eat their food and crash on the couch when i am too tired to go home.
i'm also thankful for my boyfriend's family who let me do the same, and act as a second family to me. they mean so much to me and have helped me to learn and grow SO much these past 2 years or so.
lastly, i just want to take a second and admit to myself that Klay is probably the only one sincerely interested in reading this, so here's to you, lover:
(disclaimer, this is also a belated birthday post for my lil guy, so either stop right here or bear with me through the mushiness!)
I am so thankful for you, today, Klay! the fact that you're up here in Utah with me means so much more than you knoww. i'm so excited for you to meet my extended family members, i know they'll absolutely adore you, who wouldn't?
juust for fun, here's a few things i haven't told you i'm thankful for yet:
-i'm thankful for the 100s of texts you send me to get me through each week. you're always so positive, there are times when i'm SURE that i couldn't get through my daily trials without you.
-i'm thankful for your intelligence. sometimes i (jokingly!) act not-so-thankful when you prove me wrong or disagree with me, but i love to learn from you! i love being able to have in-depth conversations without having to wonder "does he even know what that word means? haha" i love being able to ask you questions like "why do people get chills?" and know you'll have an answer!
-i'm thankful for your drive in life, it keeps me motivated. i'm also thankful for your patience and your knack for being realistic when it comes to important choices in life & our relationship. its so easy to get carried away with someone you love, i'm lucky to have someone who is willing to be realistic with me in order to accomplish things!
-i'm thankful that you're the only person i know who can eat more than me! makes me look less like a heffer ;)
-i'm thankful that you don't ask questions when i ask you to take a picture of me, or what i'm doing, or food or an outfit or whatever i deem photograph worthy. you're so cooperative :)
-i'm thankful that you laugh at my jokes, and that i don't have to explain them to you. you just get them!
-i'm thankful that you're downstairs talking to my grandma, you're perfect :)
-i'm thankful for all the memories we have together. you've made these past 18 months so pleasent to look back on! disneyland, out to dinner, nights spent indoors, parties, birthday's, holidays, special kisses, dumb little fights that ended in laughter etc.
-i'm thankful that we can work through our worldly pride-issues together, because we wouldn't be where we are now if we couldn't! we are so fortunate.
-i'm thankful for your honesty, and that is a million times more than i can say for most anybody else.

i love you, Klay Berlyn Miller!

i can't wait to spend them with you.

cost and worth are very different things.

i don't have a specific reason for this entry so i guess i should warn you that if you don't like rambles, stay clear of this post!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

i'm watching confessions of a shopaholic, (laughing at the part where they get drunk in order to look over her bills hahahaha, i do the same thing, minus the alcohol, plus maybe a starbucks drink and a desk to feel secure enough to check my email/bank account/ grades, bracing myself for possible bad news hahaha)
in my pajamas, spending today catching up on things such as shaving my legs... taking off my toe nail polish, hydration (i tend to let myself become dehydrated), i need to go grocery shopping, i need to deposite some moneys, and i'm doing homework... YES HOMEWORK!
i was so upset about school for too long. i finally made up my mind about how to spend my next 2 or 3 years.

i will be finishing out this semester with my communications class, my computers class and my main court reporting class. on monday, i need to meet with a financial aid and cgcc advisor to make sure that i have everything in order for my next semester. spring '11 i will be going to CGCC to complete my prerequisite credits and classes, buying a machine and working more than usual in order to make enough money to move out to phoenix over summer '11. after i move out there, hopefully NEXT to my school, i will take off work and commit all my time to my court reporting. i'll be able to focus and flyy through my schooling.
and then graduate.
and then be a court reporter
and make money
and put my husband through school
and then have kids & stay home with them
and then i'll retire, and manage my sandwhich shop in laguna beach
and live happily ever after!

i mean, this isn't a new thing, its been my general plan from the start, but the moving to phoenix and learning that i need to focus everything in to my school work in order to be successful were imperative self-discoveries.

my hair, i need it done. my roots are showing, how embarrassing. i'm thinking i'll go a little lighter, but still deep brown. i didn't know my hair would be so black, but i still love my peekaboo highlights, and i plan on adding a few subtle ones underneith as well. my hair is so healthy, honestly i'm obsessed with it. i haven't had healthy hair in so long, its growing and not breaking... i'm not afraid to wash/brush/ touch it!

i really need to hang up the clothes in my room. maybe i'll end this blog post here, drag them out in front of confessions of a shopaholic and put them on hangers.
i'll do my dishes
then i'll go grocery shopping (i hate grocery shopping alone, i need klay to come because then its one of my favorite activities)
and deposite the $100 my amazing father got for my 6th grade mongoose entry level bike (HOW!!?) and then tonight i work.

Tuesday, November 2, 2010


i am so frustrated with school, i'm having such a hard time dedicating myself. i'm questioning the path i've chosen, wondering how far i can go to get what i want. should i quit my job? should i move away to school? phoenix? california? how far is too far?
i don't want to waste money, i don't want to waste my time, and i don't want to let either get away from me. i want to love what i do. i want to be invested in my school work, in gaining knowledge.
and while we're on that subject, i want to be invested in gaining knowledge in both school and spiritual environments.

christmas or bust

glad halloween is over-ish.
atleast over as in, i get to spend the day with my boyfriend and our wonderful families, handing out candy to little babies and eating treats rather than being surrounded by naked hoes.
to not put it lightly, facebook has become a porn site.
i do not condone this behavior, ladies. i'm serious, its not funny, its not classy, its not acceptable, its disgusting. i have so much respect for those of you that are enjoying yourselves on halloween, without EXPLOITing yourselves on halloween. i don't claim to be the most modest girl in gilbert, but i do try to maintain a high level of self respect and acknowledge that i need to work on it.
we eneded up going to the hanger party, and i really enjoyed myself!
not to say anything to specific, but i found out who my real friends were last night. they are honest, genuine, classy people and i am so blessed. i only regret not having realized this sooner. even if we're not that close, i'm still so thankful for each and every one of you!
sometimes it just takes that last straw to make a thurough turn around and head in the right direction without interuptions.
here's our pumkins!

and a bad picture of our costumes:

klay was an m&m and i'm scar from lion king!

i'm SO looking forward to the rest of this year! at thanksgiving, Klay is coming to utah with me and my family for Voorhees/Bergman festivities and i couldn't be more excited to spend that time with my family and klay! its going to be so much fun. he's such a wonderful boyfriend, i'm the luckiest girl. i love you, sugar!
and then christmas! yay!

i run to you

i sure get more requests to update this than i ever thought i would. i honestly felt like i was writing to myself for a good 2 years, and the pressure is makin' me shy ;) no really i've been busy and its been hard for me to write.
i'm so excited for things right now!

parker higgins comes home today, and we're all getting back together to go to his homecoming get together at his house tonight. i've missed him so much, its insane that it has already been 2 years. wow, thats just crazy!

i moved out some time ago, and i'm just now getting in to feeling like this is my home, and that makes me in the mood to decorate. i can't tell you how many hours i've spent at ikea in the past few weeks! thats mostly thanks to klay though ;) he moved out too, and he's pretty dedicated to making that room of his look sick. its definitely off to a good start babe!
take a picture of it and i'll post it here so everyone can see how hard you workeddd.
if anyone wants to donate a large map to me, it would greatly help with my decoration!

as a last minute thing, klay, me and his mama are going to laguna beach! she's doing some sailing certification, so it should just be a nice relaxing weekend spent with two of my favorite people eeever! i'm so excited and i hope there are a million pictures to come.

in about 2 weeks, i hope to go to CA with makenna, ian, and klay. i want to go to disneyland! more details on if that worked out laaater.

i've been working a good amount lately, and still loving my job! i love when klay brings ian in (who just got back from his mission as well, which makes me so happy! he's a good friend and i'm so glad he's here for klay, he missed him.) and gives me pink roses when i'm in a rush. i love working doubls and i, quite frankly, love money! so it works out well.

i'm not sure whats going on with school right now. i'm really starting to see that the commute is just too much for me to handle at the moment, especially with the hours of practice and hard work it would take in order to pass. i just can't be driving an hour, staying for class, studying/ practicing for a few hours, AND working. i just wouldn't be making enough.
i'm hoping, actually, that there are going to be some bigger changes in my life, that will allow me to buy a machine, move to phoenix in order to be closer to school and help me to finish my studies as a court reporter.

its okay to be undecided, i keep telling myself.

Thursday, September 23, 2010


as always, i'm continuing my "healthy eating" kick, but in a new way, so here goes day one number 1,209.

i'm trying really hard to stay on track, and suprizingly its getting easier. usually with a diet, you start out stoked to stick with it and lose weight, but by the second week (or, for me, 2 hours in to it) you're drained, bored and craving like mad. welp, this isn't a diet in the first place because the only thing i'm restricting are foods specifically bad for me. foods that will weigh me down and negatively affect my daily life. i'm a busy busy girl, and i need the energy to get through my daily grind. i really can't afford to be sluggish and lazy. especially at work. i refuuuse to eat lunch there on my shift because i become EXHAUSTED for the second half of my day. i don't mean a little behind, i mean like eyes closing, nodding off etc. our food is so so good but its heavy and perfect for eating right before you head to bed hahaha.

all this aside, i just love how eating healthy makes me feel. i don't think many people realize just how affected they are by the things they eat! i love that i have a rather broad knowledge on the subject from losing weight in my younger years and i'm thankful for the fact that i now know my body so well, that i can have that leeway that allows me to indulge without setting me back.

this is what i had for breakfast today:

it was deliciouuus.

egg white omlet on try toast with salsa, fresh spinach and fresh cut mushrooms.

i wish that i could go into a career dealing with either nutrition or culinary arts but i have absolutely NO desire to complete the schooling that it takes to get into that industry. i have thought about teaming up with someone and opening a cafe or something. i don't know, i just know alot about food and i LOVE to eat, so i feel like iknow what goes good together.

like right now i'm eating high fiber strawberry and cream oatmeal with 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt.
its heaven. i just thought of it on my way home from school because i'm already so hungry.

SO good and less than 180 calories, but it fills you up like crazy.

i'm excited for tomorrow! i get to go hiking with Klay's wonderful mommma and his ADORABLE nephew Karson! up at 6 am is totally worth it to hang out with these two, they're definitely some of my favorite people ever!
i don't know where we're going or anything of that nature but i'll be sure to snap some photographs of the hike and the little guy!

i can't believe its almost fall!
in about 1 month you can find klay and i riding our bicycles all around every where because we love them, but its been soo hot since we bought them in july, we've only been able to ride them 2x.
klaybear, i am going to ride my bicycle to your house every day, that can be my fitness routine because i'm not too good at the gym... just kidding! we can do both!
but really. i'm riding my bicycle to your house. or you can meet me half way!

i love how in shape i get during the winter so that i can show it off in all my layers, baggy sweaters, jeans, boots and scarves...! not.

ps lovin' these! getting them todaaay:

just married

everyone is getting hitched!

but seriously i love weddings. weddings, receptions, everything marriage related.
i'm so glad Kody (Klay's brother) is married! he is so happy, and i'm extremely happy for him.
it was so fun to be so close to an LDS wedding! i'm 19, LDS and not married yet, and i still had alot of questions about the whole process so i'm thankful for the oportunity i had to be up close and personal with Ashley and Kody's. It was just a good time in general.

i keep saying i want this for my engagement ring (when it happens! i'm not holding my breath. ye-e-et.) but i don't know if i'm thaaat nontraditional. they have the option for it in platinum *as seen above* with a wedding band that looks like :
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
and i currently have it in silver. it means so much to me, but as i said i don't know if i could stray that far from the beaten path.
just a thought.

special delivery for kaitlyn williams wright:

there's so many things on my to-do list right now. everything from washing my hair (everyone at work thinks i'm nuts for putting that down on my lengthy weekly to-do lists but when you're only washing your hair like once a week, a girl can forget!) to taking my vitamins, to going to school.... which i'm the worst at.

i seriously haven't been to school in ____ days. i'm not going to fill that in because i'm beyonddd embarrassed of what a slacker i've been. so unmotivated and i DON'T KNOW WHY. probably because i'm human so i cherish money and instant gratification so i'd rather work than go to school. which is stupid, i'm smarter than that. but i'm so happy! and soo capable of fitting school into my schedule.

so maybe i'll make a virtual to-do list and that will help me because its so darn public, i just can't slack off.


-go to school

-save your money

-contradicting buuut buy cute scarves and cardigans @ h&m to stock up for winter

-take your fish oil pills and your face medication every daaay!

-get your hair trimmed

-take off your acrylics (omg, so much over growth, my nails grow WAY too fast, i'd have to get them filled every week for it to be worth 30 bucks)

-go to the gym 5x a week

-eat healthy (i am doing better! no more fast food)

-write this all down because you'll forget and it makes you feel good to cross things off!

-clean your car

-do your laundry (sorry aub! i'm so embarrassed by how its piling up)

-read and pray every day/night

-wash your hair

i am proud of what i have accomplished though

-landed a great job that i love, work hard for my money and am definitely paid off for it!

-saved alot of money lately, but was able to treat myself to nice things like a new watch and summm klothez.

-took off sundays @ work so i can definitely make it to church!

-prioritzed and decided some things for my future.

alright, in just a minute i'm going to get a head start on that.

if you're looking for a great new place to take a date, business meeting, or on a family outting, try Firebirds. i'm serious, i had never been there before i applied, but i can't imagine going out to eat anywhere else haha. their food is SO good. traditional with a twist, so you're not taking too much of a risk. we have a really high level of customer service and the atmosphere is just devine.

gooooogle it and look at their website

thiiiis girl!

sticking to my healthy eating, and staying active.
i feel 100x better than i did just a week ago. i'll keep this upppp!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
i absolutely LOVE this.
the power of positivity isn't a new concept in my life, persay. its definitely something i've overused withint the past year and a half in order to... keep living, but i've been trying soo hard to stay overly positive these days. not only positive, but to keep in mind all the millions of blessings i recieve on a daily basis. i've been trying to be less controlling, and taking things as they come, finding the positive in every situation. i love how happy i've made myself. i love not relying on "good luck" to make me smile. i love waking up every morning with a smile on my face, and have it returning multiple times during the day for, seemingly, no reason at all. i have SO much going for me in my life, i am literally one of the luckiest people i know and i would be crazy to think differently.
i love my job, family, gospel, boyfriend, friends, roommates, living arangements, daily going-ons, eeeverything.

anyways, i wish i could explain more, but friends is on and i can't concentrate for the life of me.

Thursday, September 2, 2010

have it your way

making up for it.

today was so much fun!
i worked this morning like i always doo, made some $$$ but then i got a chance to relax at my apartment. i watched the break up (i'm such a sucker for this movie! it breaks my heart every time, but yet i keep coming back to it.) i lounged around, placed the beautiful flowers klay got for me for my birthday in their vase. they're dried now, so i cleaned them up a bit, and i LOVE the fact that i still get to wake up to them every morning...... as i did when they were alive.... hahahaha
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
bad quality, but beautiful daisies (my favorite) and gorgeous red roses.

when Klay got out of class, he called me and told me to come outside because he had a surprise for mee :) sure enoughhh, my favorite... i seriously eat bk every day without fail and have done so for about a month now.
hence, the pound or two i've gained... i mean it could be worse and i just love it so much
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
& fries. lots of fries. with ranch.
i love that he knows things like this about me, and brings me food when i've been lounging around all day, too lazy to get me some burgers.
he's the sweetest boyfriend <3

we then went to his apartment that he recently moved in to with the markham boys and sterling hastings. we watched the office. and spongebob. and something about deadly prisoners. i'm just glad that he's all moved in. he loves it! and i love that he loves it :) the boys are super nice and i'm so glad that he found the oportunity to live with kids his age, we love friends!

we left around 8 to go grocery shopping, and didn't get finished until almost 10:30! haha we love to grocery shop, we go sooo often the people at fry's know us by name, i'm just sure of it! i got a lot of food that will help me to eat healthy because my bk burger + energy drink diet is literally going to kill me. i got poweraid zero and granola bars and cottage cheese and string cheese and water jugs and fruits! and some things for school. mmmm i love grocery shopping with klay, we have so much fun doing simple things like that, it makes me extremely happy :)

i love you, klaaaybear. thank you for today and for helping me bring all my groceries in and the trash out and making sure i was safe i just love you so much :)

bad habit

i know its a terrible habit, one that i need to break oh so badly, but i LOVE blue monsters. and sugar free redbull. i love energy drinks in general.
i look forward to every morning because thats my excuse to have one.
klay and i wait til they go on sale at fry's and stock up like mad!
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
i put them on ice and mmm... i KNOW! i'm terrible.

overeaters anonymous

i'm bored, i eat.
i need to keep myself busy and break this habit, its too expensive... not to mention less than flattering on my hips.

i want to start my exercise routine again, or atleast start walking every day.
soo many thoughts on my mind.

you're my best friend

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
i want these bridesmaid dresses, i really really want them!
obviously a little higher in the back, but i'm in love. these are the colors i've already picked out for the wedding i'm having... the one that doesn't exist yet! other than in my mind.
thats gotta count for something, though... am i right?

so, so much has happened lately. i don't even recall the last time i've posted.
i've moved out with some amazing girls from my ward!

started a new job @ Firebirds Woodfire Grill in Chandler
(seriously GO THERE. on a date. its delicious.)

and about a week ago, i began my second year at Gateway Community College.

i bought this yesterday!
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
love it.

i have a lot of important changes to make in my life, and i'm ready to do so.
not exactly changes, but moderate improvements. i hoenstly feel like there is always so much room for self improvement in my life, inside and out and i love to set goals, meet them, make more goals and strive to reach them as well.
yep, now you're all caught up and i'm ready to go!

if i could have any job in the world

i would be a jcrew model.

BUT if i couldn't do that, i would really appreciate my own cooking show.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
i am far, far too passionate about food to let that one go.
and i don't mean baking, cooking.
i'm going to do it, i swear! even if its only to post on my lil ol' blog.

... i love food.

aggressive driving.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

every day while i drive to school, i think about how annoying rush hour is. i know its terrible, but i feel like i get to school so much more efficiently by being an aggressive driver. i absolutely cannot stand the practically stationary vehicles around me. you can find me headed west bound on the 60, about 7:36 am, muttering under my breath, "for real?" "honestly?" "are you serious?" every 5 seconds.
i'm over it.
today, i decided i'm going to write a book (or at least an essay) on how to drive. yeah, i'll call it... i don't know. "how to get somewhere in life being an asshole"? 'somewhere' specifically being your destination during early morning stand-stills. or maybe simply "backseat driver"?
i don't know. it doesn't actually matter because then i just realized the whole context of this book would be,
"if you're not going to turn right at this light i plan on turning at, go away." or "only i am allowed to text and drive" or even "if you haven't figured out by now that metro buses stop all the dang time and take up the whole right-hand lane, then i'm not letting you in. you deserve to be stuck behind one. end of story. maybe you'll learn your lesson."
i don't really have much advice other than "please get out of my way and let me get to school on time because i may or may not have chosen to sleep in and now i'm running late."
where did i even get this aggression? my mother and father couldn't be happier with just goin' with the flowin' of traffic, even if switching lanes could cut off 15 minutes of their drive time. i wasn't even allowed to drive with people until i was 15 and i'm always the extraordinarily cautious passenger, scared out of my mind that everyone and their dog is going to merge into us for no apparent reason.
what it all comes down to would probably have to be my severe lack of patience... at least when it comes to interferences with my schedule.
am i patient in any situation? probably not, unless it is a convenience to me.

JUST KIDDINGGGG. i am not a terrible person, but come on people!
its my way onnnnn the highway... atleast in my mind.
