April Update

April has been a very very busy month for me and I have a feeling May is going to be even worse. Time has flown and I am definitely not complaining. I love looking at my countdown and being surprised at how many days I have left! 460! That is not a whole lot in the grand scheme of things. So this month my missionary has been working very very hard. He has what he says is a difficult companion and he tends to not follow the rules...such as calling home on the mission cell phone but they are working things out and starting to have some progress. So I think I posted this a few months ago but Grant had a little bike accident which led to him injuring his wrist {someone threw a beer bottle at him and he totaled his bike} well it has still been bothering him a lot so he finally got an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon well long story short Grant is having surgery and yes I am freaking out. He has decided that he does not want to come home to have the surgery and they are going to let him have surgery in California as long as his stake president gives him the OK which i'm sure he will so no he is not coming home. I can understand why he doesn't want to come home and I am working hard to continue to support him when he needs me the most. My update hmmm I turned 18 this month so I am no longer "jail bait", I got a new car for my birthday, a Pontiac G6 that I love, I ordered my graduation announcements which is a scary thought, I applied for housing, I won three track meets in the pole vault, set a new PR in pole vault, finished my senior project portfolio, and a lot of other boring senior stuff. I graduate in 22  days yes it is way crazy for me! So I found this cute little thingy or quote I guess you would say so I will share that and wrap up my April update.

 "Only once in your life, I truly believe you will find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you've never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future,dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens you can't wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or may you feel like you not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. there is never any pressure of jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and now worry what they think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasure kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of you childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it's like being young again. Colors seem brighter and 'more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn't exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps you get through along day's work and always brings a smile to you face. In their presence, there's no need for continuous conversation, but you find you're quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before became fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there's a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel the true pleasure that's so real it scares you. You find strength knowing you have a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting, and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are part of your life."

Late Night Rambling

Sometimes I can't sleep so I here goes the random thoughts that have been crossing my mind all night {i'm sure this is a look back and laugh one day post} I love tractors like honest boys who can drive tractors are pretty attractive and the fact that I am listening to she thinks my tractors sexy is not helping. I have a headache I always get headaches when I wear ponytails. Why do boys always want to be friends with benefits isn't it slightly pathetic...I mean your 18 years old it's time to start acting like an adult...annoying. High school is overrated and all the stupid girls in high school. Graduation is in 29 days! I hate when the shop light gets left on and I can see the light in my window. I am freaking out about my EMT skills test it is going to be like death! I need to change the color of my toenails they have been hot pink far too long. What looser buys a prom date and then discovers she doesn't have a date...oh that would be me. What possessed Grant to buy me a snuggie for my birthday in April? Jason Aldean makes every bad day better. I need to turn in my housing application. I wonder if I am ever going to find out if I got any scholarship money? I miss having someone to call when I get bored like this at night. I got sunburned really bad not to self do not mow the lawn in less than modest swim apparel. I really should run more often it really clears my head. I should not drink Dr. Pepper before bed. I am ready for summer! I need to do my EMT homework. I wonder what Grant is doing right now? I think I should do my hair in a messy bun tomorrow. My abs kind of hurt from pole vault. I am craving grape juice like crazy. Ok so you think i am crazy sorry but this is really what goes through my head when I can't sleep all these random tidbits of my day and other thoughts. See what Grant has to put up with? Poor guy huh! Well this is the end of my ramblings goodnight ha!

Adult Status

So on Friday I turned 18 so I am officially an adult! Grant sent me a lively package full of Reeses of course a zebra snuggie flip flops an iTunes card and my favorite a letter! I love my boyfriend hundreds of miles away and he still spoils me! He had his momma send me flowers 18 gerbs my favorite! My parents bought me a NEW CAR!!! I was excited it's a Pontiac G6 and I love it! I got lots of other goodies and I was so spoiled! Grants dad informed me I am no longer jail bait! Ha when it's finally legal to date my boyfriend he's 700 miles away just my luck! So to celebrate my friend Hailey and our little sisters went to El Caporal and then to The Lucky One! It was a great birthday and I am so grateful for everyone in my life!

The Man I Love

I know I post a lot about Grant maybe a little too much but I know one day I will look back on these and be so grateful that I wrote all of this down. I love Grant he is one of the funniest persons that I have ever met in my life. So funny thing about Grant he absolutely hates when people touch his ears, apparently they are really sensitive or so he says. He works so hard! He would spend all night planting beets and then get up at 6 a.m. and go to work. Grant loves back massages! He always opens the door for me. He loves guns but all he shoots are little animals. He cooks more than I do which is not a lot but still. He owns about a million Fox, Hurley, etc. shirts and he wears maybe 10 of them, the rest are now in 3 storage boxes. He has a ton of shoes, again I have only ever seen him wear his boots and his Nike's. His favorite tie is this yellow one that I don't like so much haha. He is a wonderful and happy morning person. I have only seen him wear shorts 3 times, twice in his swim shorts, and one time when he played basketball with my family. He is romantic deep, deep, deep down. I could go on and on and on about Grant but I will stop now before I bore you to death!

 Zebra Egg or I tried to do a zebra egg
 I heart Grant
A tie on his egg
This weekend was pretty great. We decorated Easter eggs and I had to decorate one for Grant of course since he is practically one of the family. Well this weekend it got me to thinking of what I did last Easter. I got up went to church then Grant and I went to his Aunt Kay's house for dinner with Grant's family, then we came home to my house and had a little dinner with my family and played outside with my little brothers. It's crazy once they are gone you realize how much you actually miss them and spending time with them. You think going on a date with your boyfriend is not big deal but when they are gone you wonder what it was like to even date them...ya seriously. I honestly think I have forgotten how to date...I do date when I get asked {which is not very often} for some reason the thought of dating a girl with a boyfriend on a mission is not that appealing huh go figure. Sometimes you miss them so much! Then you get to email chatting on Monday and realize that this is still the same boy that I love and drives you CRAZY which he does quite well. Even in California he seems to ramble on about sugar beets and I live on a cattle ranch which FYI I barely know what a sugar beet looks like, ha when he was home we would talk every night on the phone and I would fall asleep every time that seemed to really drive him crazy, it drives him crazy that I never answer my phone, it drives him crazy that I wear flip flops practically all year round except if there is snow on the ground. It drives him crazy that all I do is sports, he hates my lists my endless lists of thing that matter and even things that don't, my zebra obsession I think he puts up with but still drives him crazy. Okay so we drive each other crazy, and we rarely ever agree on anything it takes us all day to choose where we are going for dinner, and yes we have had an ACTUAL fight with yelling and all that but I think that is what makes our relationship real, we understand that we aren't going to agree with each other all the time, we know we fight a lot {mostly love fights}, and he does things that make me crazy but I love him and all the crazy things about him. I love that no matter how mad, grumpy, or tired he is he tells me that he loves me, I love that the dork remembers the exact outfit I was wearing the day we met, I love that he is my farmboy even though it is not exactly "cool" to some of you, I love that he lets me drive his truck {even though he would hate it if any of his friends or father knew}, I love that one time he jammed out to Hannah Montana music with me, I love that he lets me eat all the popcorn at the movies and never complains, I love that he protects me even when I don't need protecting, I just love him period through all the stupid stuff I love him. Grant has a huge heart and cares so much about people, he is a teddy bear inside and tries to hide it, he is passionate about everything he does and give 100% in everything he does. I love him! And I kind of miss him that is why this Easter post turned into a Grant post oh well!
