today was good.

first day out on the lake today. i thought my base tan that was really quite nice would keep me from burning. nope. but it's a good burn. cleared the wake today. a couple times. lots of tubing. sun was hot, water was refreshing, company was good.
got back to orem, somewhat exhausted. boating really takes it out of ya, especially after being exposed to more sun that intended, and i was greeted with a date. three game of laser tag and another game of bowling. i love being with Landon. he makes me happier than anyone and to be honest, he is the only person on this earth who could keep me out doing stuff in the state i was in. and now it hurts to move. but it's great. today was good.

also, happy birthday Dani.

heaven on the lake's edge

saturday came somewhat swiftly. today is my first day here by myself, and i only have 13 minutes until we are officially closed and i made it. i'll admit it. i'm really proud of myself. sure i have four or five issues i need to have my boss help me out with on monday, but for the most part, the customers were overall pleased with my service.
tonight, we're all heading down to the manti pageant, stoked to say the least. Landon decided to bail because he is going to ride his motorcycle. don't worry though, i was a good girl friend and supported his "me" without the slightest bitterness or a guilt trip. not that i usually do, i'm just sayin... i behaved when he told me.
last night, he and i went for a drive. no need to buy anything, we just wanted to drive and listen to music. it was so delightful. he took me to the edge of utah lake just behind the provo airport right at sunset. we sat in silence, my head on his chest listening to this song. the bugs outside swirled in the wind and my mouth watered as the clouds turned from white, to light orange, to orange, to pink, to red, then to a lavender. Landon smelled like heaven and for all i knew at that moment, i was there.

that's all i ask.
basking in the sun that
bleeds through the dusty
telephone stays silent.
time slowly flows on by.
i await six,
but until then,
that's all i ask.

michael mclean is my bff

i saw michael mclean tonight. he is spectacular.
conference and firesides are great, i love the insight i receive from them
and what i learn in general,
but there is something so different about a spiritual musical experience.
music can reach something in my soul that words never will be able to.
he played for me what my spirit needed to feel tonight.
questions were answered tonight through sweet melodies.
thank you michael, you helped a lot of people tonight.

and on a seperate note, Landon is taking me to Backstreet Boys!! :) yay! i love him.

to swizterland:

i feel like going to switzerland and kicking serious @$$. four of the three people who read my blog won't quite understand, but i know one does.

don't let it destroy you, i know it hurts, but you're still the one who has the upper hand on this. you're winning, i know it doesn't look like it from some perspectives, but you are.
damn switzerland.

and just remember, whether switzerland decides to take it's head out of it's buttless butt or not,
you've got it going on, with your P90X and your awesomess, you can walk on water, you can fly.

my life is better because of you.

to ricardo:
man of Panda
you know me,
you sure know i'm going to get the shrimp.
honey and almonds
mini heart attacks and heaven deep fried all in one
and still, you offer me a sample.
service with a smile,
sharing is caring,
simple acts of love.
we're strangers, and still
your swollen sides
share similarities of a friend.
thank you for spoiling me
i'll take all the shrimp you've got to give.

to calvin and hobbes:
holy crap! where have you been all my life?

we're complete opposites in a lot of ways, and yet there couldn't be a pair better friends than us. we balance each other out and help each other think rationally when the other isn't. you taught me how to appreciate hard work when it comes to art and school. you've shown me what true passion means. you're not that friend who tries to change my opinion of what i feel. you don't judge me and you sincerely try to look at things from my point of view when you don't understand. you've taught me how to cry. (that's a good thing) you've taught me the meaning of faith. you've shown me love and friendship that i will never be able to thank you for. you've given me advice that may never have surfaced on it's own. you've been spiteful with me, you've been obsessed along with me, you've been honest with me, but most of all, you've been with me.

so, thanks.

curious iraqis and
iraqis wearing helmets
cuddling with Landon for three minutes before going to work
using the bathroom
entering hundreds of internet orders and laughing at people's names
behr bom. carrie carree. toni doney. janae develbiss. stormy draney.
lunch with Landon at the purple turtle
tator tots
using the bathroom
thumb wars
brain freezes
being called blonde by a bitter asian
using the bathroom
mean girl is being nicer
free falling by john meyer

using the bathroom
freeze dried chicken dices: $31.87
using the bathroom
now i'm waiting for Landon to come home.
