New Favorite Song!

I know I have a new favorite song every other post, but this one is what I am feeling right now, so this is by Owl City,(thanks to Annie and her amazing taste in music introduced to me this fantastic band!) called Vanilla Twilight-
The stars lean down to kiss you
And I lie awake and miss you
Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere
Cause I'll doze off safe and soundly
But I'll miss your arms around me
I'll send a postcard to you, dear
Cause I wish you were here

I'll watch the night turn light blue
But it's not the same without you
Because it takes two to whisper quietly
The silence isn't so bad
Till I look at my hands and feel sad
Cause the spaces between my fingers
Are right where yours fit perfectly

I'll find repose in new ways
Though I haven't slept in two days
Cause cold nostalgia chills me to the bone
But drenched in vanilla twilight
I'll sit on the front porch all night
Waist deep in thought because when
I think of you I don't feel so alone

I don't feel so alone
I don't feel so alone

As many times as I blink
I'll think of you tonight

(Tonight, tonight, tonight...)

I'll think of you tonight
When violet eyes get brighter
And heavy wings grow lighter
I'll taste the sky and feel alive again
And I'll forget the world that I knew
But I swear I won't forget you
Oh if my voice could reach back through the past
I'd whisper in your ear:"Oh darling I wish you were here"


So life has been just crazy lately! Friends leaving on missions, friends getting married, friends coming home from missions. AHHHH!!! I am still looking for a job, actually had a job interview today. It didn't go as I would've liked, but hey I WILL find one soon!
I am so excited for Christmas and the feeling you get surrounded by family! I just love it, and the New Year coming up! I will be 20 years old this year, isn't that just crazy!
Well Marry Christmas and New Year, hope all is well with everyone and their families!
Love, Kirstie

Oh my goodness!!! I just love this girl!

She is my best friend in the whole entire world!! I've shared my deepest darkest secrets with her and honestly I don't know where I would be in I didn't have her to help me along!
It all started when I was a sophomore at Weber High School, in Brother Rogers seminary class room, I noticed this really shy girl wearing the same CTR ring as me. I showed her mine and BOMB the rest is now history! She has changed my life is ways that I couldn't tell you.
I'm dedicating this song to her and I totally love it! I know, it's by Hannah Montana; but the lyrics are awesome!

Lyrics to True Friend
We sign our cards and letters BFF
You've got a million ways to make me laugh
You're lookin' out for me; you've got my back
It's so good to have you around

You know the secrets I could never tell
And when I'm quiet you break through my shell
Don't feel the need to do a rebel yell
Cause you keep my feet on the ground

You're a true friend
You're here till the end
You pull me aside
When something ain't right
Talk with me now and into the night
'Til it's alright again
You're a true friend

You don't get angry when I change the plans
Somehow you're never out of second chances
Won't say "I told you" when I'm wrong again
I'm so lucky that I've found

A true friend
You're here till the end
You pull me aside
When something ain't right
Talk with me now and into the night
'Til it's alright again

True friends will go to the ends of the earth
Till they find the thing you need
Friends hang on through the ups and the downs
Cause they've got someone to believe in

A true friend
You're here till the end
You pull me aside
When something ain't right

Okay I know I haven't posted anything in a while, but hey guess what??!!! LIFE IS JUST CRAZY!!!! My little sis moved down to Provo, My older sis got married, and hey one of my best friends now just left on his mission on Wednesday!!! Oh and yes I'm still looking for a job! I'm really not liking looking for one because I find out that millions have also applied and someone else got the job OR the people haven't taken off the Employment article in the newspaper yet!!! AHHHHHHHRUG!!! Okay now I'm done venting!!!

I was in the car listening to a song on the radio and had my pen and paper at the ready after it was over to write down, the title and who sang it. Turns out to be my little sis's (one of the many she has) favorite bands and I'm in love with it!!! This is exactly how I'm feeling right now but hey I'm lovin life!!!!

FIREFLIES BY OWL CITY______- (They are coming OCTOBER 11th!!!)

You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep
Cuz they fill the open air
And leave teardrops everywhere
You'd think me rude, but I would just stand and stare

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet earth turns slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
Cuz everything is never as it seems

Cuz I get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they try to teach me how to dance
A foxtrot above my head
A sock hop beneath my bed
A disco ball is just hanging by a thread (thread, thread)

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet earth turns slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
Cuz everything is never as it seems (when I fall asleep)

Leave my door open just a crack
(Please take me away from here)
Cuz I feel like such an insomniac
(Please take me away from here)
Why do I tire of counting sheep?
(Please take me away from here)
When I'm far to tired to fall asleep

To ten million fireflies
I'm weird cuz I hate goodbyes
I got misty eyes as they said farewell (said farewell)
But I'll know where several are
If my dreams get real bizarre
Cuz I saved a few and I keep them in a jar

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet earth turns slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
Cuz everything is never as it seems (when I fall asleep)

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet earth turns slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
Cuz everything is never as it seems (when I fall asleep)

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet earth turns slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams

Okay, I need a full time job, money, idea for school, money, plan for the rest of my life, money!! Mention I need a job? So that is just one thing that is going on in my life.

Monday, July 27, 2009


I'm totally in love with this state!! The green moss, the ocean splashing and hitting against the rocks to which you can wake up and fall asleep to. It's quite amazing. I went for a walk this earl y afternoon and guess what I saw??!! SEA LIONS!!! I also saw the first whale of the whole trip!! It was quite amazing!! I'm so grateful to live in a world that is so beautiful, and so amazed.

Fourth of July Pictures!!

I GOT THE PICTURES!!!! AHAHAHAHAHH!!!! YES!!!! FINALLY!!!! I MET MY FAVORITE LDS ACTOR ON THE FOURTH OF JULY AT MY BEST FRIENDS AUNT AND UNCLES WARD/BLOCK BASH!!! IT WAS AMAZING!! Corbin Allred has been in the movies "Take a Chance", "Christmas Mission", "Saints and Soldiers", and also episodes of CSI and NCIS. He's a pretty cool guy, we talked to him for a while, and I even got his autograph!! It was so cool, you might think that some actors are up tight and worry about themselves and how they look, he was totally running around with his kid, and dancing with his wife in the middle of a street! He was way down to earth.
Okay so some of the pictures are a bit weird, but it wasn't the photographers fault, it was totally mine and Corbins! We left our poses to early to see the picture, oh what great memories!


A NEW SWIM SUIT!!! I NEED A NEW SWIM SUIT THAT COVERS EVERYTHING!!!! But good news, I might have found one, not quite sure yet. I looked at this pretty sweet website. But here's their blog address:

And I found this! And the one below that, so let me know what you think!! I need back up voices, please!

Happy happy day!!

I also have to tell you about the Fourth of July, it was the most amazing Fourth I've had for a very long time. For a sneak peak I'll give you the title for it, Emily and Annie helped me out with it, Okay The Freeway, Fireworks, The Famous, And the Fuz!! I'll write all about it as soon as some peeps,(you know who you are!!) will send some very important pictures my way, for proof.

Okay, I just love quotes and well I have lots and lots of them!! Here are some that I've collected over the years!!

"People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within"- Elizabeth Kubler-Ross.

" If you have one true friend, you have more than your share." _Thomas Fuller.

"When it hurts to look back, and you're scared to look ahead, you can look beside you and your best friend will be there!"

"Together forever, never apart. Maybe in distance, but never in heart."

"Promise you won't forget me, because if I thought you would, I'd never leave." _Whinnie the Pooh.

"A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out." _ Walter Winchell.

"If all my friends were to jump off a bridge, I would not follow, I would be at the bottom to catch them when they fall."

"If I had one gift that I could give you, my friend, it would be the ability to see yourself as others see you, because only then would you know how extremely special you are." _B.A. Billingsly.

A true friend is someone who knows there's something wrong even when you have the biggest smile on your face."

"The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling lke it was the best conversation you've ever had."

"It is by chance we met....
By choice we became friends."

"Tears may come and go,
but there's one thing I know.
All my life you're a friend of mine.
You can depend on me.
I'll be fine...
'Cause you're a friend of mine." _Clarence Clemens.

"One can't complain. I have my friends. Why, someone spoke to me only yesterday." _Eeyore.

"Friends are those rare people who ask how you are and then wait to hear the answer."

"How lucky I am to have known someone who was so hard to say goodbye to."

"Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light." _Hellen Keller.

" A circle is round it has no end, that's how long I want to be your friend!"

"It takes years to build up trust, and just seconds to destroy it."

"No man or woman is worth your tears,
The only one who is, will never make you cry."

"If you love someone, put their name is a circle, instead of a heart,
hearts can break, but circles go on forever."

"Everyone hears what you say. Friends listen to what you say.
Best friends listen to what you don't."

"Don't frown, because you never know who's falling in love with your smile!

"It takes a minute to have a crush on someone, an hour to like someone and a day to love someone---but it takes a lifetime to forget someone."

"If you judge people, you have no time to love them." _Mother Teresa.

I think I have a confession to make! I have never really said that I live in the most beautiful place in the world, but I do. I've been taking it for granted for a very long time. It's taken about 10 years now to finally realize that I do live in the most beautiful setting in Utah, or anywhere else for that matter!! I'm just lucky that I live in a beautiful place and I'm just greatful for it!!

What a beautiful Present!

This beautiful picture is just outside my side door, isn't it beautiful?!?!

Monday, May 25, 2009


SO TODAY WAS MEMORIAL DAY!!! Some extended family and immediate family hiked to the "white M" in Morgan today, it was very very very hard but it was way worth it! I have loads of pictures to place on here today!! I'm way excited! Okay so the first bunch of pictures are of my sister, other sister, and my big brother and his wife.
The first picture is Me, Kaitlynn, Emily, Bryan, and Annie. The picture below is of Annie and what she's like most of the time around us! Emily dragging Annie up the rocky path!

This is me after hiking all the way to the TOP!!!

This is what was our prize at the bottom! His name is Luke, and he's my cute little nephew!

So while we were eating, Luke was getting chased by Emily and he was just a laughing! It was just so cute, it's filmed sideways so I apologize! I'll try to fix it in a little while, sorry once again!
I just think that it's so funny! This is Zachary, he is a handsome young man! I just love my nephews so much and I don't know what I would do without them! This other young man is Brock and he's Zachary's older brother, I couldn't get a picture of Brock today, so this is when Brock came to hangout at Grandma's house to plant the garden! So that was our Memorial Day, hope yours was just as good, I know mine was! Love, Kirstie.

MY BOYS!!! and girls!

All of my life the ratio of my friends being girls probably ended up being.....not many. Most of my friends are boys. But here's a story, and I'm a very visual person so I'm going to show you pictures! When I was a small, (well I still am!) Sophomore I made friends with the coolest bunch of kids ever! We had a blast! But there was a small, okay huge problem, THEY WERE SENIORS! Yes me the classic wonder made friends with mostly Seniors, hey I still had my amazing groupies from the Valley that I had known all of my life. I wanted to meet new people, and eventually as it is sad to say, I drifted away from the amazing groupies that I had from the Valley and ended up with some great amazing friendships!

So this picture is of my 16th birthday! It was a blast! Okay I'll start with the picture on the left, people from the left; Spencer, (I'm not going to write last names.) Me!, Eric, Brett, Daniel, Olivia, Charity. (Michelle was taking the pictures!) Okay now the picture on the right, there is a story about this one Brett and I got into a heated discution about the lays at my birthday party and he said something to the effect Spencer got into it, and then somehow they ended on Spencer! What good ridiculus memories! Okay now the picture below, Brett and Eric are having a dicution on the limbo stick, those two! Oh and Brett comes home in JULY!!!! YAHAHYAYAHAY!!! Exciting day!!!!

Okay now here's the rest of my story... So, after these great Seniors left and something great happened... I became friends with the little brothers and sisters in my grade of my Senior friends! I just want to write and tell all of my friends, that I love them and I'm very greatfull that they have been there for me when I just need people to listen or to vent to, or to get advice from.
At the beginning of my post I said that most of my friends are guys, it's been that way all of my life, I just get along with guys better than girls, but the best of friends that I've had or have right now are girls! But anyways, most of my guy friends are some of my biggest role models, I've had a gole since my big brother Nate went on a mission to follow in his shoes and not only have my dad, my oldest brother Bry, but now all of my other "brothers", actually "my boys" are now getting their mission calls, most of them have already left on their missions.
These are just two of my many best friends that I have!! Eric is on the left, and Patrick is the one to the right, this is Patty's farewell get together afterwords.(Micah is in the background behind Patty!) Eri is like my Dr. Phil, he gives the best advice, it's just amazing! Eri is plain honest, which is wonderful! He has helped me through so much! He's going to Brazil for his mission in July! Micah is just Micah, he helped me correct my English essays that were somehow never on time!
Patty is one of the greatest people that I know, he is just amazing! Not only is he just there when you need to talk he also listens! He is just Patrick, he's an amazing actor and quite frankly there isn't anyone like him! Oh I just miss him!
So this is Jacob. He's one of a kind! He's just......AMAZING!!! He and his best friend Trevor are just the coolest people ever. Jacob is just Jacob. Trevor is a very great friend also, because he knows when things aren't good. He's just an amazing friend! Oh and Jacob left for Madrid, Spain his mission Febuary or was it March? I'll have to check and change that! Oh what a great friend I am!

Okay this is my favorite picture! It has all of my boys in it. Only one of them I didn't really call my boy, but I love it anyways! (from the left) Michael(mission), Kyle(mission), Tyson, Drew, Jacob(mission), Micah, Patrick(mission), Cameron(mission), (bottom) William, Michael(got his call), Eric(got his call).
Now this is just crazy!
Okay I should have two more boys and a girl in this picture! AHHAHAH! Okay Left is Michael, got his mission call, his farewell is in June. Me my mission is in two years, right when they get home! Cameron, left about the same time as Jacob! They are two of my Amegos! The other three Amegos! are Jordan and Braden, Jordan lives in Alabama(still mad about that Jordan), and Braden lives about 15 minutes from me and Emily!
But these boys are just crazy! But I miss one bestest friends Emily, she lives in Logan now, and I just miss her to death, but hey that life right?!

So I was kidnapped by my best buds in this world, Michelle and Daniel. Oh and they are the older brother and sister of Jacob. But anyways they kidnapped my and then we went to see another friend "Little Joe", and then we went to see the new movie "Angels and Demons". (Which is a fantastic movie, go see it!) It was just so much fun! We just to have another friend in our group Spencer, but he went to BYU-Idaho, and I sort of miss his rediculus ideas and thoughts!!

This was a while ago, anyways, Michelle, (who is taking the pictures again, what's up with this!?) Daniel, Spencer, and I had an amazing idea of raiding Acher's and make our own dinner! That platter on the counter isn't dinner, that would be a platter of BROWNIES!! Just us goofing off! Spencer didn't understand at all what we were trying to accomplish here!
I forgot what was going on in this one!
But that is what's going on in my life!

Every Thing Happens For A Reason!!

So tonight was Seminary Graduation. Wow! To think that just one year ago I was doing the same thing that my little sis is doing!
My little sis is one of the stongest people you will ever meet! I mean it to, she really is strong! But in another meaning she is very strong, she is great with people. She is amazing and I know that we don't always get along, yes we fight and don't get eachother a lot. She is always be there to help me along, when I'm having a bad day at work or having stupid boy problems, she's always there!
I love my little sis, and I hope in time to come I can always have her back like she has mine!!

So the verdict is in.........................AHAHHAHAHAHAH! Dakota Fanning is to play Jane, in a fantastic movie called New Moon. I really don't know if I like Ms. Fanning as an actress, (mind I said actress, I hate how they call women actress's actors now!) in the movie War of the Worlds all she did was scream and yell for her mother. I haven't seen Push yet but it looks some what well put together, I am Sam was a fantastic movie, Fanning and her little sister did a crazy good job on that one, Charlotte's Web didn't fascinate me in the slightest. But the thing that is getting to me right now is that they are putting very well known actors and actresses (which are called a-Lister's.) into the movie, having a a-Lister is well and good but they should be placing others into the mix not well known actors and actresses that for them and their career is that this could be their big brake. At first I was way peeved about having Fanning play Jane, but now the main thing is that just think about the other actresses that would've played her and have this be their big time. Having a 15 play a vampire is okay, fine, dandy! I'm just hoping I'll get to see a lot of Jacob Black in this movie! TEAM JACOB!!

Yes I am alive!!

Okay, can someone personally tell me why this picture is really wrong, please!

So there is a rumor that Vanessa Hudgens has supposedly tried out for the part of Leah Clearwater, (which I hopefully can say I wish it is just fantasy for her fans.) I can not personally see her playing the part of a werewolf, can any of you??

Just let me know what you think!! Oh and isn't it just grand that Taylor Lautner is back for New Moon?! I think so.

Yesterday I saw this in an article/blog written by someone, somewhere while I was on my break at work.
and I quote, "Yeah, I admit it, I am one of the freaks that likes High School Musical, mainly because I like musicals and because I thought it was a good concept, and yeah, she will most likely bring in even more teens to the saga but.... oh well, as long as Zack Efron is not cast as Sam and they brake into song in the middle of the forest I guess I could......" and she goes on to say stuff about how she could live with her playing Leah's part.

I quite agree with her with the High School Musical stuff but all of those stars in the musical fit the part, and I really can't see a singing scholar playing the part of a future werewolf, I really can't. End of story. I really want to hear all of your opinions, if you have any on this matter.
