"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

Hello, Draper!!

Well, this week has been a crazy one for sure. I'm all moved out of the Provo apartment and into my place in Draper. I just have to pick up my vacuum and drop of my keys. Oh, and finish cleaning. Bleh. Oh well. I like it up here pretty good. I finally got my internet all set up yesterday so I spent pretty much ALL DAY waiting around for the guy to show up. Lame. Here are some pictures of the new place. I'm still working on finishing up my decorating project on the one wall but it's cozy and I like it:

My new bed. Sleeping on it is heaven.

My new bedspread/sheets. So pretty. Thank you, Ikea.

Dresser and Coffee Table. I put them together all on my own.

My 3 windows. So much sun comes through. Love!!

Check out the vaulted ceilings. Still working on the wall. I'll post another pic when it's done. 

Kitchen area. 

Sleeping/Living Area

Fan and Vaulted Ceiling. 



Medicine Cabinet


That's about it. It looks nicer in person than in the pics but I like it. I went to my new ward for the first me today. The people are so nice. I really think I'll like it. And it's in an actual meeting house. Not in a classroom on campus. The perks of growing up. Or something. Slightly awkward moment: Someone I fired a few months ago is in my ward. I thought it was going to be totally awkward but he came up to me after church and said hi. It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. But still. I thought I was getting out of that trap by leaving Provo. Oh well. Such is life. Enjoy the pics :)
