Just keep Swimming

Ok I really want a new swimsuit
and I want a one piece actually...
I have been looking for over a month
and every day I go and put like six in my online shopping bag
but I CAN'T decide!
So fashionistas, some help!
Which do you like?

These two are the same but different colors that I like

This is the next one, showing you how it looks on the model but not this color

This color is the color I like in this one...

And then also...keep in mind it can have straps if I want....

Same suit but in grey

And then also....

Ok so what do you think?

When you know you know...ya know?

One year ago today...
My Ben asked me to marry him


It was one of the best days of my life up to that point and I am so happy 
and feel so lucky that he loved me enough to ask
me to be his MRS.

President Monson said in this last general conference...

"Priceless advice comes from a small framed plaque I once saw 
in the home of an uncle and aunt. It read, 
“Choose your love; love your choice.” 

I can honestly say that a year ago I chose my love, and I LOVE my choice.

I know it's been a while since I have blogged which means I am already 
failing on one of my summer goals, remember those? I am pretty sure I am failing on a lot of them
like get invited to the Kardashian wedding and run every day.
Anyways I just want to give you guys an update on what we have been up to lateley.

Remember when I said that I think I love summer semester and it was gonna be good.....I LIED!
9 credits-worst.mistake.ever.
School is killing me right now! I had 3 exams and 4 quizzes this week, I feel super overwhelmed with school and it makes me want to take a nap!
my planner this week...yuck
Also I miss Ben. So. so. Much! It has been over a month and it is getting so hard.
I am counting down the days till I get to see him. He is working so hard out there and I know it is hard for him too.
I sent him this pic from the parade "Happy 4th Babe...wish you were here!"

He sent this pic back "Happy 4th...Wish I was there"
Sometimes I just wish we could not work and eat snowcones and play all day,
 remember when summer used to be like that?

Anyways Womp, womp right? Good news-
I got a JOB!  I started about 3 weeks ago and I am now working at BYU Philanthropies, 
basically I call BYU alum and ask them for money!
 It is a really great job though and they do lots of things to make it fun,
I get to pick my own hours and we have theme weeks and stuff-this week is Harry Potter obviously
 so we get to watch movies the whole shift!
Also Jennica VB works there too so that is even better!

I also have discovered and been LOVING Pinterest....more like PinterFEST!
 It is so fun and so addicting.  It is like a giant online bulletin board and if you see something you love and want to remember you just pin it! A great wall of sharing ideas that goes on forever. basically a guy would hate it haha but it is great...check me out!
Go have a fest!

Britt and I (my roomie for the summer-too fun!) went to the Salt Lake downtown farmers market and it was so huge and great. so local. so many free samps!

I got to see Ben's family for a quick breakfast on their way through town, always love seeing them, kids are so big now!

And I guess I have a lot to look forward to...

I get a kiss from Ben in 23 days when he joins me at
our amazing family reunion which is always a fav part of my summer.
Summer semester is short so it is almost over.
After Fam Renunion I get to go home to CANADA! I miss it bad.
The Bachelorette is awesome, Ashley is JP!
Labor Day weekend in St. George with Ben's fam!
Maybe possibly an end of summer trip with our besties!

True North Strong and Free!

July 1st is officially Canada Day and I am so sad I am not in that beautiful country today.
Oh how I will miss the Raymond Parade (not really), the random pancake breakfasts, the Astro Jumps and the Fireworks. Most of all I just miss the Canadian Pride that everyone has so much of, especially today!
It is hard to be in America today because no one even knows what Canada Day is, it is just another regular day for them, but I can remember how fun Canada Day was growing up and how happy of a day it was! I just want to shout "Happy Canada Day" from the rooftops and watch a parade!
I think I'll pretend that the Fireworks and Parade for July 4th are for Canada!

I usually go home every summer, this summer has not allowed it and 
I am really missing my home and native land.
I miss my family.
I miss the prairies and Waterton.
I miss being able to go to the doctor...for free.
I miss Costco fries and Poutine.
I miss saying Washroom and reading the French on cereal boxes every morning 
I miss Ketchup chips and Canadian Slurpees.
I miss the maple leaf being everywhere, from peoples calf tattoos to the flags (flegs) flying from cars and houses.

To honor Canada Day, I am going to wear my Canada shirt even though it is long sleeves and SO hot here, my toes are in patriotic fashion, we are going to make puffed wheat, have a BBQ and light off our own fireworks!

The United States has been good to me and I have liked living here for the past few years but my heart lies in Canada. 
I am so proud to be from this country, where we are free and happy and promote peace, I get goosebumps everytime I hear our national anthem!
Proud to be Canadian, just like Justin Bieber!
