Pure Happiness :)

I know that just about everything makes me happy...but this week has been EXTRA happy!! for SO many reasons :) :)

So happy that it made me want to blog about it, so here we are!

1. Finished my first semester at ASU with a 4.15 GPA. hard work paid off!
Now instead of feeling like THIS is taking over my days...I have a well earned MONTH break!!
2. My beautiful SISTER moved home!! I love my best friend!! Now, I'm not missing anyone or anything, I am perfectly content and happy with where I am and who I'm with...(okay I have some close friends at BYU that I miss, but we still keep in contact and make up for lost time when we're on break!)

3. I LOVE the HOLIDAY SEASON!!! Full of Happiness, love, service, lights, decorations, giving, christmas movies, romance, family, and friends.
My amazing Light friends did a "Remembering White Christmas" show.
ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!! They did amazing.
I can never get enough of the temple+christmas lights...two of my very favorite things!!
I love makin sugar cookies and watchin christmas movies on rainy days with my bestie!
This season is being SO good to me :)

4. I Love the time I've been able to spend with my parents :) With all these days off, I've been so lucky to get one on one time with my incredible Mom and Dad!! I have been working out with Dad and shopping and making crafts with Mom. I love them so much, I am really glad that I have stayed home this semester and had this time with them. I learn so much from spending time and having good conversations with them. Truly incredible people.
I'm so blessed to call them my parents.
Mom and I have too much fun doing crafts :)
P90X-bring it!

5. I've loved spending time with my cute friends! I am so lucky to have such amazing girl friends! I also went swing dancing with some friends and Sis on Wednesday night!! SO much fun...we finally mastered these moves after many attempts. Pretty excited about it! As you can tell, I loved it!

6. Grafton Milne.
Our first date was last friday...yes, I've wanted to go on a date with him for a very long time!!! No one would blame me either, I think every single girl wants to go on a date with Grafton Milne-He's such an amazing guy! He was my home teacher for six months, and made me feel so welcome and loved in the ward. I've always admired the person he is-energetic, enthusiastic, friendly, and has a genuine love for people, life, and the Lord! To be honest-I thought I would NEVER get a date with him...i'll admit I have never been so excited/nervous to go on a date with someone before... and It turned out to be
THE best date EVER!!!!
I have had an incredible week with him...
He's such an entertaining, fun person and treats me So amazing.
I feel so blessed to be able to spend time with him and love getting to know him...
Can you tell how Happy I am?! :) :) Life is SOOO GOOOD!!

My favorite quote :)

“You can be excellent in every way. You can be first class. There is no need for you to be a scrub. Respect yourself. Do not feel sorry for yourself. Do not dwell on unkind things others may say about you. Polish and refine whatever talents the Lord has given you. Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, but with great and strong purpose in your heart. Love life and look for its opportunities. And forever and always be Loyal to the church.”

~President Gordon B. Hinckley

I have this quote on my wall in my room, and lately I have been reading it quite often. It is so straight forward and inspirational, it reminds me of the important things in life and that if we will life this way we can truly be happy.

Life is truly wonderful! I love this holiday season and the joy it brings! I am so incredibly blessed!! School is (successfully) done for the semester, Heavenly Father loves me, and I have amazing people in my life! I couldn't be happier.
