the gift of giving.

this year, instead of receiving a ton of presents, my family decided to take some of our money for christmas gifts, and get some things for the homeless.
we got some backpacks and filled them up with a bunch of stuff.
then we went to orem, and drove around. hoping we could find some homeless people.
we drove around as a family for like an hour! and didn't find any.
but then yesterday, when i was on my way to the mall with melisa and connor to buy some presents, i saw someone! he didnt even have a jacket on. he looked like he hadn't shaved in years. he needed help. so i called my dad and told him. he brought him a backpack. this guy was sooo happy that we made that for him.
just knowing that we probably made his day, makes my day. (:
now off to find some more people in need(:

ps. merry christmas(: i love you all(:

everyone has felt unwanted before. and all you want is for someone to come along and make your day. i'll admit... thats me basically every day. but I got thinking about it. how can you want someone else to make your day, when you don't even try. all you need to do is use one muscle, and smile at someone. or use a few thumb movements, and text them something happy.
sometimes all someone needs is for you to text them and tell them you love them. for all you know, that text could be saving them from suicide. I learned that in health a while back.
sometimes, you just have bad days. It happens to everyone. Maybe you feel left out, maybe you feel unwanted because others seem more wanted, maybe you wish that one boy would just like you, maybe your hair isn't working out, maybe you've got a huge zit on the middle of your forehead, maybe your family is moving and you just don't want to leave, and maybe you just need someone to be your friend every day, so you don't get left alone, maybe you want to know what your gonna do on a Friday night, instead of pray that someone will call you.
90% of the people who read this, are thinking right now "that's sooo true about me right now" because 90% of your life, you will have something on the back of your mind thinking about problems, and things you wish you were. Everyday is different. Different people have different problems. maybe one thing, maybe 100. in my case, that's my list.

but tomorrow is a new day. embrace it.

best friend: NOUN.

some people misuse the word best friend. for someone to truly be your "best friend"...

-you both care about eachother.
-neither of you ever talk about the other in a negative way.
-you don't use the word "best friend" instead of boyfriend/girlfriend.
        -lets be real. its just a reason for you to not be together.
-your inside jokes are YOUR inside jokes. you never find him/her joking about things that happened between the two of you, with someone else.
-you don't tell eachother's secrets. plain and simple.

a true best friend does not call everyone their best friend. trust me, been there, done that. its just an excuse from a person with a small... ...brain. ... i love you(:

winter time = sick time.

so theres this thing. when it gets cold, a lot of people get sick. well i'm usually not one of those people. but i just so happened to be sharing drinks with manyyy people the last few weeks. no i did not kiss anybody.. sadly. and now i have this icky-ness called mono. dont get me wrong, sleeping is the best thing in this world. but i'm even tired when i'm sleeping. and i dont want to sleep anymore. but that is all i can do! i have 6 tests this week. that is one in every class, besides seminary, and softball. which means no sleep for brittany. i think the hardest thing i have ever done, in my life, is wake up this morning. bleeeeck. santa, please make me better!

heartaches, and mistakes.

i wish i could take back texts.
if i hadn't hit that send button. 
..asking if you honestly still liked her.
we wouldn't be where we are right now.
she is one of my two my best friends.
i can't make that mistake again.
i'm still recovering from the last time i made that mistake. 
me & her barely even talk anymore. i can't stand it.
you were so cute to me.
you would drop me off at my house last, just so we could talk alone.
but this time, you dropped me off first.
one text message. 
with one question.
can make or break everything. 

my song right now?
love life by he is we.
"heartaches and mistakes, how many hits can a good girl take?"

the best thing in this world.

to me, the best thing in this world (aside from boys of course...) is soccer(:
this weekend, i went to the BYU soccer winter showcase, with the rest of celtic storm(: (my team)
we got to play a bunch of soccer games, against different teams, from different levels.
it was so much fun! i'm glad i went(:
only down side -- i am now sick, from playing outside in the cold... but it was worth it(:

of course that's me, it the wrong shorts...

obsessive? just a bit.

everyone has a tv show that is on every week, and they can not stand to miss it.
for most people, their "show" is pretty little liars, or secret life of an american teenager.
well mine... is sweet home alabama.
In the first season, this girl named devin was like a batchlorette. 10 city guys and 10 country guys came, and they all wanted to be the final boy. it got down to the final 2 (tribble reese, and adam moyer) and she chose adam. so tribble got a chance. now it's the second season, and 11 city girls, and 11 country girls come to "win his heart." basically, i'm obsessed with this show. and the final two girls (tristin and jackie) are left. tomorrow he says who wins. i'm so excited. i like the country girls the best! tristin is country, and jackie is city. tribble is country, so he haaaaas to choose tristin! 

tribble and the girls!
tribble reese....babe.    
the country girls (: my favorites? the farthest to the left, and the third to the left. courtney & tristin(:

the boy who cried girlfriend.

we all know who this boy is.
well most of you do.
almost every blog i have ever read has said something about this boy.
this boy calls you *or your friend* his girlfriend.
he tells you he loves you. but he doesn't.
he texts you every day. just like every other girl in his contact list.
he tells you things you think are specially meant for you. but 3 other girls just got that same text.
you go write about him and how cute he is to you in your blog.  then you read a post just like the one you just wrote about him, and the "special things" he says to you.

lets face it.
*to boy who cried girlfriend * you doesn't have a girlfriend. you have many girlfriends.  your sixteen. it is okay to date around! but when your lips have more friends than you do...that's a problem. you don't really love her, so don't say it. you can't tell her you've never felt this way before, and send it to two girls. but most importantly... you can't hold a girls hand. while texting another girl, saying you love her. 
 lets be real. youre a whore.

an attitude of graditude.

this week was thanksgiving. obviously on thanksgiving you think of things that you are thankful for. i'm thankful for a house to live in. and such great friends and family. i'm thankful for music that makes me happy. soccer that makes me want to be better. and mostly, people tthat influence me in my life.

i hope everyone had a great thanksgiving! i sure did(: even though i'm pretty sure i gained like 10 pounds....(:

an eventful weekend indeed.

this weekend was super eventful.

first off: thursday night, went to the midnight premiere of breaking dawn. me and maddy were working on our health project, then decided we wanted to go to breaking dawn. me and lexi had talked about it earlier, so i knew she wanted too! obviously when i told my mom we could still get tickets, she jumped right on it. we had to go to macey's to get treats. i mean, who buys treats at the movie theaters anymore anyways? stuffing all our candy in our jackets, purses, and blankets, we walked in. as we were sitting in our seats, we notice the quite attractive men that we had been staring at, while we were in line to get in. so obviously we are going to take a million trips to go get free waters, just so we can walk past them. or in my case... trip onto them. That would happen to me...(:

friday: missed first and second period, recovering from our midnight premiere.(: hung out with maddy, and we played in the snowww(:

saturday: me and vikki were so lucky, to get to go with tessa, and a bunch of other students, to the KSL building in salt lake, to be there when they announced the winner or we are utah! it was so much fun(: and sooo cool. thanks tessa!(:

after that, me vikki logan and peyton walked to a party!(: then ended up leaving and went to visit melisa for her birthday(: happy birthday melisa! i love you!(:

today: watching the ravens game... the ref gets tackled? awesome. LA galaxy wins the MLS championships? today was a super day. loving life.

april -- t-minus 131 days. -- hawaii? hopefully.

everyone has those days.

today was the worst day for me.

woke up late.
its that time of the month. i didnt know. and i wore white pants to school.
i forgot to put on makeup in my rush to get ready.
my back hurts like none other.
im getting a coldsore. it hurts like none other, and it feels like everyone stares at it.
we didnt do anything fun in any of my classes.
it was the  l o n g e s t  school day of my life.
my brother left me at school cause he was mad at me.
and now i'm in trouble?
my thumb is all swollen again. suuuuuper.

today is just one of those days when everything goes wrong.
-everyone has those days.
hopefully tomorrow will be better.
but for now? eat as much ice cream as i possibly can. 
sometimes, it just makes the day better.

yesterday i went to sadies. it was definately one of the best days of my life! i went with sam, vikki went with braden, sidney with spencer, and marie with matt! first, we went ice skating. it was so much fun!(: even though i fell a bout a billion .5 times...

next, we went to the mall, and had a scavenger hunt. there were two teams. me, sam, vikki, and braden were one team. and sidney, spencer, marie, and matt were the other team. we had a list of like 40 things on the list, and we had to find 30. i think we tied... (:

after the mall, we went to golden corral. best place to eat. ever. we told the waitress that it was marie's birthday. just for a laugh. so they came and sung to her. it was the funniest thing of my life!(: and i got it on video(: we found a half-full mountain dew bottle on the ground, and put it in sidney's drink. ...quite the dinner date(:

once we were done eating, we went home to get ready for the actual dance. then went to the dance, and it was a party!(:  best day ever.

read this story. i love it(:
i stole it from brittney.
who stole it from someone,
who stole it from someone else.
enjoy (:

A little boy asked his mother, “Why are you crying?” 
“Because I’m a woman,” she told him.   
 “I don’t understand,” he said. 
His Mom just hugged him and said, “And you never will.”   
 Later the little boy asked his father, “Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?”   
 “All women cry for no reason,” was all his dad could say.   
 The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry.   
 Finally he put in a call to God. 
When God got on the phone, he asked, “God, why do women cry so easily?”    
God said, “When I made the woman she had to be special.   
 I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world,    
yet gentle enough to give comfort.    
I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children.    
I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up, and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining.    
I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very badly.    
I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart.    
I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly.    
And finally, I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed.”    
“You see my son,” said God, “the beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.   
 The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart - the place where love resides.”

deep deep down..

everyone has that one song,
that when you hear it,
your heart sinks,,
and your stomach gets that weird feeling.
my song? is this is promise you by n'sync.
once it comes on, i want to keep listening to it.
when i keep listening to it, it gets stuck in my head.
once its stuck in my head, that's all i think about all day.

when your in high school..

when your in high school...
people are gonna talk whether your doing bad or good.
boys will kiss and diss you.
there will be girls that you just cant be around.
and boys that you have to be around.
there will be people that need your comfort,
and sometimes..there are people who are a little too dramatic.

but comes a time in life when you have to let go of all the pointless drama, and people who create it. and surround yourself with people who make you laugh so hard that you forget the bad, and focus solely on the good. cause life is too short to be anything but happy. (:

her fairytale.

everyone's got their own little dream date they've got in mind. mine goes something like this:

fourth of july. he picks me up and we drive up the canyon. we go up to squat peak, where we can see the whole valley, and he pulls out a blanket, sets it on the hood of his car, and we sit on it and watch all the fireworks going on.  he has a picnic basket full of food, so we have a picnic on his car, and we stay there until the last firework.

the cold weather is coming. its called winter! where you wear boots with everything, and scarves are a must. jackets and hoodies are your everyday outfits, and you can't find a reason to actually get ready in the mornings. leaves are changing and the air is getting colder and colder. tans are fading, and blonde hair slowly darkens. time to find a boy and cuddle up with, parties to go to, and hot chocolate to warm your insides. christmas music, hot tubbing in freezing cold weather, and long drives to nowhere. dressing warm, sitting by a fire, watching only the best wintertime movies. this is one of the best times of the year. ..besides summer.

sometimes, you've just got to try something new(:

me and lexi went to a party the other day.
the typical party... 
timp people on one side, pg people on the other.
here's me and lexi walking from place to place,
visiting everyone we possibly can, having fun in the process.
This party only happens once a year anyways.
so why not have a good time?
someone brings out the boxing gloves, and the whole party gets in a big circle. 
there must have been at least 70 or 80 people there. 
people boxing each other, having the best time.
twins boxing to see who will win, and best friends boxing each other just for fun.  
they all had one thing in common.
they were all boys.
all up until someone yells my name. they tell me and lexi to box.
of course, we go for it.
i didn't think we really would box. i put the gloves on and smiled and laughed.
she threw a fake punch, so i threw one back.
then it started. we were throwing punches at each other over and over.
we were really boxing... we thought. 
but, we were basically just throwing punches at eachother, like little girls.
people were yelling names. and cheering. 
i was laughing so hard, i couldn't breathe.
finally, we stopped and hugged each other.
i was out of breath & so was she.
we were the only girls that boxed at the party.
but, sometimes... you've just got to try something new(:

no one is perfect.

do you know those people, who make you think you have to be perfect? don't.
do you ever feel like no one will like you, cause you aren't good enough?
well.. you are.  
do you ever feel unwanted, because it seems like other people are wanted more?
well.. they're not.
face it.. no one is perfect. and no one is better than YOU.
be yourself. 
dont let other people change you.
