I feel.....WICKED!

July 24th is usually a great day. 
July 24th, 2012 was one of the greatest days of my life. 
I got to experience something I've looked forward to for the past 8 years of my life. 

I got to see Wicked! 

The cute souvenir shop :) 

Outside beforehand

So Excited!

One of the best nights of my life!

Family :) Thanks for the awesome Christmas present Mom and Dad!

My favorite part of the show was definitely "Defying Gravity"

Ah, so amazing! I can't wait until I someday can see it again :)

Sometimes, I feel like crap.
Sometimes, I don't get ready for the day because no one will see me.
Sometimes, I go to church only because I know that I should, even when I'm sick.

Sometimes, I am super grateful for the Olympics to keep me entertained while laying on the couch.
Sometimes, I hate the Olympics because they make me feel inadequate.

Sometimes Always, I miss my best friend.
Sometimes Always, I don't want to grow up.

Sometimes, I am so ready for this week to be over.
Sometimes, I feel like I'm behind in my "love life".

Sometimes, I don't have the motivation to blog about going to Wicked this week.
Sometimes, I really don't have the motivation to do anything that I need to do.

Sometimes, I just feel like screaming....or crying.
Sometimes Always, I can't and won't let my insecurities show.

And sometimes, I just have to forget all of this and go on with my life.

Dear Boys 17

Dear Pops,
Yesterday was probably the best day of my life. 
Thank you for the "wicked" present ;)

Dear Jacob,
We'll see how this goes!

Dear Brother,
Sometimes I'm jealous that you get a summer and I kinda didn't.

Dear Canada,
How long?

Dear Breast Friend,
Why do I do this to myself?? You are so far away, and I miss you.

Dear Crunch Wrap,

I don't think it's gonna happen in the fall cause it doesn't even happen now. 
Just sayin'


Dear Future Husband,
You are going to be referred to as Sam from now on.
Some days I long to meet you. And others I don't care if it takes a couple more years, or more. 
But when I do meet you, it's gonna be glorious, I can tell :)

LOTR Movie Marathon!

Another check off of the Summer Bucket List!

I kind of can't believe I actually did it! I watched all three EXTENDED versions of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy :) 
So this week, it has just been me and my dad at home. So, we decided that on Wednesday of this week Dad would stay home from work and I don't have school on Wednesdays. 
We were going to watch all 3 movies straight, in one day. 
We've never done it before. We've done where we watched one a day for three days, but never all in one day.
So, Wednesday morning, I got up early (like 7:30am, which is early for me on a non-school day) and showered and such. Then at around 8:30am, the marathon began!

The box set :) 

And so, it begins...

One down, 2 to go!

Movie Marathon Munchies ;)

2 down, 1 to go!

Ended, at 8:30pm, almost 12 hours exactly!

It was a great day, besides the fact that I was sore from hiking the night before. 

My favorite "meaningful" quote is by far between Sam and Frodo during "The Two Towers". Here it is:

Frodo: I can't do this, Sam. 
Sam: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something. 
Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam? 
Sam: That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo... and it's worth fighting for.

So, this is why my Dear Boys Post from yesterday was LOTR style :)

Hike the U and Ensign Peak

2 things off of the Summer Bucket List checked off! :)

On Tuesday night, Dad picked me up from school and we drove over to the base of the U on the mountain! It wasn't too big of a hike, but it was still fun! 

"Hiking" up to the U

Go Utes! :)


Utah Girl for Life :)

Dad: "Now look into the sunset!"
Me: "Ok Dad...ha ha ha"

The City

My School!

At the Top

Cool Kids :)

Then, we drove over to the base of Ensign Peak!
That was more of a hike than the U, which was really fun :)

On the way up to Ensign Peak!

Sunset :)

The Temple!

More Temple :)

You can kind of see the U on the mountain in the middle of the pic. We were just there!

The City :)

The Capitol Building!

The Capitol and the Temple :)

Then, we decided to get ice cream on the way home, mainly because I hadn't really had any dinner yet so I was famished! 

Spending this week with just me and my awesome Dad has been a blast for sure! :)
