"Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is BEAUTIFUL!!!" - Sophia Loren

"Come what may, and love it. I know why there must be opposition in all things. Adversity, if handled correctly, can be a blessing in our lives. We can learn to love it. As we look for humor, seek for the eternal perspective, understand the principle of compensation, and draw near to our Heavenly Father, we can endure hardship and trial." - Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin

"Happiness does not depend upon what happens outside of you, but on what happens inside of you. It is measured by the spirit with which you meet the problems of life." -Spencer W. Kimball

"We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love." -Unknown

I feel like I'm drowning in school right now. I've been told that there are only 7 weeks left in the semester and that is kinda scary because most of my big projects for my classes are due before Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is only about a month a way. Yikes!

Right now I'm trying to get ahead on readings and everything because my parents are coming to town this weekend to visit their granddaughter so I wanted to get ahead so I can see them without having to worry about homework. It's kinda crazy. I also put off a paper that's due on Thursday that i really need to write. It won't be that hard but I just keep putting it off. And I have a major test this week that I have to take too. It's for my adolescent development class which are my hardest tests of the semester.

On the bright side, I get to see my niece tomorrow afternoon. She is so cute. Such a precious little girl. She is so spoiled already.

Baby Samantha

My first niece was born at 10:43 pm last night. She is the cutest little girl there ever was! She is so tiny. She was born 6 lbs. 11 oz. and 19 inches long. I am so excited to be an aunt! I got to hold her for the first time this morning and it was really special. I'm the first one in the family besides Jacob and Nicole that got to hold her. It was really special and someday I'll get to tell that little girl that. I love her so much!! She's amazing!!

Update from P-Town

Nicole is really into this whole blogging thing so I thought I'd give it a try since facebook doesn't have blogging. School is really hard right now but that is life. I'm working really hard and trying to get good grades. I think I'll do alright.

I love my roommates. They are the best ever!! We get along super great and we always find little ways to serve each other.

I'm going to be an aunt soon which I'm a little surprised about. Nicole is having her baby sooner than expected so any prayers on her behalf would be appreciated. Everything will work out the way it's supposed to. We just have to pray and have faith.

No boys for me to speak of. The BYU get married quick sterotype isn't always true. At least not for me. :) Good thing too. I don't think I could handle being married just yet. Single life is good. Hang out and have fun is what it's about right now.

That's about all thats new with me and I'll keep things updated as much as I can.
