first fall weekend.

this weekend was simple, but perfect.
Friday me and my family took a little trip up to the salt lake airport to pick up my father who had been in Europe this past week, he brought home no Europe chocolate, but i couldn't even be sad because he brought me home one direction tattoos and nail stickers, which i'd chose over chocolate any day.

we then went to the pie, picked up the yummiest cilantro bbq chicken pizza, took it to a baseball field, and had a little mini picnic. it was sort of a spur of the moment thing - but it was fun!
Saturday morning I woke up bright and early to hike up to timp cave with my cute sister, it was raining, and by the time we were done we were soaked, but it was the prettiest it's ever been. being on top of the mountain and looking down at all the fog was beautiful! I wish i'd of brought my phone so I could've shared the view.
not only was it beautiful, but the smell of rainy autumn air is a dream.

i then got home, and took a hot bath in my dark bathroom lit by a candle; cozy and perfect.
i then cleaned for my mama, read, and took a nap.

i ended my day with a bridal shower, shopping for fabric at hobby lobby, and work. so simple, not very significant, yet such a great day, because the fall atmosphere is officially here and i'm in love. (please oh please Utah - let it stay awhile)

sunday was spent baking the yummiest pumpkin caramel cupcakes - with caramel cream cheese frosting, and spending time with family.

the weather continued to be perfect and the fall atmosphere kept me happier then ever, hope your weekends were all just as lovely!

senior homecoming

first things first, wednesday we had our homecoming pageant, i had the opportunity of participating in it representing the drill team. hands down one of the funnest, best experiences.
one of the greatest parts was having some of my best friends representing their clubs and sports in the pageant too.

then of course Friday brought the homecoming football game (which we won), and the funnest half time performance yet, so sad to think i'm almost done dancing on that football field!

and last, but certainly not least was the homecoming dance on Saturday, we went paintballing for our day date (which was completely terrifying and painful, but still a blast) then my cute sister helped me get glammed up.
we dined at pizza factory for dinner, and then we headed to the high school where we danced our booties off.


the night ended with movies and sour patch kids. guys, i'm a sentimental fool! watching my last homecoming week of high school fly was so bitter sweet, but it was the greatest one yet, and as hard as it is to know I am a senior, it's been the greatest year of high school yet.

the hill family

a bit before lex left we decided to get some family photos in, i've never doubted how much i love my family, but this past little bit i've realized more and more just supportive they are and just how blessed I am to have them. i wouldn't trade these folks for anything.

^first home football game


^disco skating, it happens every Saturday night at classic skating and it's highly recommended. i'm a beginner skater, but i was grooving at heart

^missionary letters

^^me and my friends headed up to madi's cabin around noon yesterday, we swam and canoed in the lake, then roasted hot dogs and marshmellows for dinner over the campfire, and we were headed home around 9. short, sweet, and awesome.

"something always brings me back to you"

"something always brings me back to you and it never takes too long. no matter what I say or do I still feel you here til the moment i'm gone....I've never wanted anything so much but to drown in your love and not feel your rain. set me free, leave me be, I don't wanna fall another moment into your gravity.... the one thing that i still know is that you're keeping me down"

^^this was dance was on so you think you can dance a few season's ago, and i still find myself watching it via you tube daily. it's beautiful, moving, and touching. this dance was inspired by addictions, or a softer way of putting it bad habits. 

this past year (more like this past year and a half) has been an absolute whirlwind for me, and i've been through more then i ever thought my 15/16/17 year old self could ever handle, and sometimes i have hardly any motivation or energy to keep fighting to make myself happier and better, because getting to that 'happier' and 'better' place is dang hard. but you know what? it's okay not to be okay. just as long as you keep going and keep trying. because one day this will be over, and one day what i'm facing now won't even be an issue. and that day will be the most rewarding day of my life.
