candles, cake, balloons, gifts, family, friends.... Thank God for another year.

 Each year goes by faster than the last...  I didn't snap photos of everything but my birthday was beyond me as always.  From my Pops early morning text that I swear I keep on my phone all year to lunch with Mama & Aunty Lin to a letter from Elder Mounga to random shopping with Moni to the movie/candy gift pack from Nina & Baby to dinner with the girls.  Thanks a millie mi amarosa familia (yes I'm learning some espanol kz of Elder Tj Mounga :D ) & thanks for all the gifts & thoughts & yeah just everything...  & a huge thanks to mi parentals for the BIKE kz heaven knowsI got so much candy I could start my own candy shop so I will be best friends with that bike when I'm sick of running. lol It was indeed a brilliant type of day.

Happy early birthday to my Mama....& some random ramblings...

April is a wonderful month to be born to all you April babies I just want you to know that you are the best from all the rest.

& a Happy early birthday to one of the strongest most beautiful & no doubt flyest Mama in the world!!! duhhhdunnnduhdaaaaaaa My Mama!!!  No words can every express what she means to me!!!     I'm pretty sure I was the best birthday gift she could of ever asked for only a few days early...
isn't she just lovely... Mama & me Day 1...

What's been on my mind or going on with me:
So I got a new job about 2 weeks ago @ this wonderful establishment which they call Security Metrics.  It's different from the other jobs I've had & I feel like I will succeed in it.

Elder TJ Mounga is doing wonderful things in the MTC & his espanol is getting muy bueno.  A dear friend of mine has Rosetta Stone so I have high hopes that my espanol will become muy bueno so that when my lil' Mexican brother comes home we can have a quaint conversation over some hot cocoa & crumpets. [doesn't it sound lovely]

I've decided that every year for the next 9 years I will get a new stamp in my passport even if it is just to Mexico or Canada... My passport will be full of international stamps.

I still like to buy the books that are on sale at Urban Outfitters for my cocoa table collection.

I like to read magazines more than I like to read books (the books for my cocoa table collection aren't the novel type books just fyi)

I'm training for a 1/2 marathon & although I like running outdoors more I am running on a treadmill so I can get a precise distance & time lol..

Why is becoming unfit is so easy & going back to being fit is so hard! Must remember NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD AS SKINNY FEELS & "Run like HELL today or feel like HELL tomorrow" Yes I owned a tee that had that saying on it courtesy of NIKE... (Pardon their French) ahem. lol

I dont know where that shirt is that I'm mentioning in the above statement but I would like another one. hmmmm must google it to find it.

Having a dog is so much fun!! Say hello to Neff Mountain..

I've put my shoes in rotation..  Meaning if I wear a pair on Monday I can't wear them again 'til 3 days pass (but I break that rule for my TOMS & running shoes).

I'm picking up the guitar again.

I'm going to learn how to speak Tongan as well as Spanish too bad they don't Rosetta Stone that huh...

I don't know what to get my Mama for her birthday so off to the mall I go...

G'd bye blogging world...
That is all.

Have a brilliant day. CHEERS.

Nothing better...

Nothing better than getting snail mail that is...  Love, luv, heart getting letters from my lil' bruh Elder TJ Mounga...  His letters always make me laugh on the verge of crying lol.  He is still him.. personality wise.  I've heard people say some missionaries lose their personalities while in the work... well not this guy....  He can still make me laugh super hard on paper.  It's just crazy to see him change through letters.  He is going to be an super awesome extrodinary missionary.  He's helped my testimony grow so much just from his letters alone.  I can't even image what he'll accomplish in person.  DO WORK bro.  so proud of you... I could go on & on & on about this guy but I'll save that for my old school journal lol.

Happppppppiest 2nd Birthday to my little diamond in the rough monster Lavinia!! lol  She's on her way to Cali right now to go to Sea World without me hahaha
Elder Tj Mounga & Baby Lavi taken 3/9/2011 love you both a grrrrrip!!!

If you haven't heard about TOMS google them...  

A group of us got together last minute & participated in this event.  We walked barefoot from the mouth of the Provo Canyon to the Shops at the Riverwoods to help spread awareness for the millions of people that WALK BAREFOOT everyday & have no choice.  I hardly ever walk around barefoot so it was pretty rough doing so but it made me more thankful for what I've got.  I'm also glad I can help someone out when I buy a pair of TOMS so yay to shopping that helps others in return.
