The Gym

Sorry I have been M.I.A. !!
I am going to play catch up on some emails!
A few boys asked what my opinion is on getting a girls number at the gym.. so this is my response.
I used to be totally against it.. and if a guy asked for my number at the gym I would say no. It has such a negative social stigma. But, in the past couple years I have dated 2 really really great guys that I actually met at the gym. So lame, I know. But I mean if that is the only place you see them, then why not get their number? Girls can tell if you are a creep or not and if they think you are then they won’t give you their number. But if she keeps making eye contact with you and even the treadmills can feel the sexual tension and chemistry between you two, then I think its time you did us all a favor and just asked for her number. Plus that means you both like working out, which is always a plus.. for me at least. BUT try to catch her on her way out of the gym so its not in front of everyone.. because I hate giving my number out when like 50 people are walking by and you know they are listening… its just weird.
But I say, girls need to get over thinking its weird and you guys should just go for it.
Also I posted this in an outfit post just a bit ago but maybe some of you didn’t see so for those who asked, this “a” necklace (seen below), that I wear every day is from inthisveryroom.com

Work Out Songs!

Hi friends! 
I get asked a lot to do health and fitness posts and to share my favorite work out songs.. I have been meaning to do it for so long and just keep forgetting!! So please keep emailing requests for posts, I promise I will do them! :) (eventually)
Okay so I feel a little weird giving advice or tips or what not about working out because its not like I am in great shape, but I do love working out so I will share anyways. So I have recently been getting into dub step and techno! I don’t necessarily like to listen to them when I am just hanging out but when I am running or doing any form of cardio they are AMAZING! Seriously. I came home from the gym yesterday like a giddy school girl raving to my roommates about how much I love dub step haha because I had the most amazing work out all thanks to my amazing playlist! Music totally motivates me to work harder.
Here are my top 10 favorite songs I listen to when working out:
(if you dont like the first two songs, listen to them when doing cardio and I promise you’ll change your mind!)
**Also buy the clean version on iTunes of all these unless you want an earful of belligerent-ness
1. “I Can’t Stop” by Doctor P and Flux Pavillion
2. “Cinema” by Benny Benassi
3. “T.H.E.” by Will.i.am
4. “React” by Erick Sermon Feat. Redman
5. “Da Rockwilder” by Method Man and Redman OR the remix by Lil’ Kim Feat. Rah Digga
6. “Faded” by Tyga Feat. Lil Wayne
7. “How We Do It Over Here” by Busta Rhymes Feat. Missy Elliot
8. “Nothin’” by N.O.R.E. 
9. “Lights” by Ellie Goulding (Dubstep Remix)
10. “Digital Girl” by Drake Feat. Jamie Foxx
While talking about working out.. I think its funny when girls use the excuse, “I don’t have time”. You always have time, you’re just too lazy to make time. If you have time to get on facebook or pinterest or watch a show, you have time to go to the gym and do 30 minutes of cardio or at least do sit ups and push ups while you watch bachelor. Plus, you can read a book for school or study while doing cardio AND I have recently been doing weights while doing cardio to make my work outs go by faster.
Also, I am kind of sick of girls who pin all of these pictures of girls they want to look like and then say, “I don’t have to be thin to be beautiful” or “It doesn’t matter what my body looks like, my husband loves me no matter what”
You’re right. You are beautiful just the way you are and your husband will love you if you gain 30 pounds. But if you want to look like those girls you keep pinning, I suggest getting your butt to the gym and doing something about it. 

***And boys…. if you expect us to have Victorias Secret model bodies then you better have a six pack and some awesomely strong arms to go along with those high hopes.
And please…. stop working out just your top half. You look ridiculous.

MAN SCENTED & my weekend :)

The other day after stats, I heard a bunch of guys in the corner talking about something that sounded cool. So of course I walk over there to see what all the fuss was about. They were all smelling some candle so I asked to smell it and it was amazing! Turns out what they were doing actually was cool.. this guy makes man scented candles and they smell soo good and different!!!! I seriously think they are the coolest things ever! I LOVE when a guy’s house/room smells good or when they have a candle lit! I’m obsessed with these! (some of the scents sound weird but they are delish I swear!)
The man scented candles come in the following scents:
-Mountain Dew (my personal fav)
-Sawdust
-Cologne
-BBQ’d Ribs
-Cut grass
- New Car
-and any other scent you can think of! If you have something in mind you can tell them and they will make it! Same goes for ladies too.. I am having him make a candle out of my perfume scent I am so excited!

Small candle = $5 OR 2 for $8
Large candle = $10
Prices for custom scented candles (aka like my perfume one I am getting) will vary but around the same price as the others :)

If anyone would like to order one then send me an FB message or comment on this post and give me your name, phone number, how many, what size, and what scent! If you want a custom scent let me know that as well!

As for this weekend… IT WAS AMAZING! So much fun! Awful Waffle date, Park City, yummy pastas, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, some indoor golf, free gifts, fun parties, celeb hunting, SO MUCH SNOW :), sleepovers, and just so much fun.
Here are some pics:

 I didn’t get to go to the gym Saturday so I was STOKED to wake up to snow and I got to shovel it all! It was such a good work out.. I’m so sore from it! First time shoveling snow and I loved it!

 Me and Kier! It was Kier’s first time driving in the snow.. but she did good she was honkin at people to get out of the way.. eating pizza and driving.. she is talented, I know. We drove the Excursion and that thing was a freaking champ in the snow.. no one messed around with us!

 SOOO HAPPY it finally snowed!!!!! SO PRETTY!

 I was taking pics left and right haha so fascinated. It was like I had never seen freaking snow before or something.

 Me and my Lauren!

 I did a subtle color melt on this girl’s hair the other day and I’m loving the color on her! She is such a beauty.

 Finally got to wear my new Sorel’s that I spoiled myself too!

 Bookstore.. Charging my dead phone and getting creepy pictures taken of me.

 Playing with kittens in the store!

 Our pretty drive

 My free Skull Candy headphones!!!!! They have my name engraved! I love them. I have always wanted some but they are so dang expensive! So needless to say I was stoked.

 Fire dancers. (I have NEVER hated a facial expression more than I do his in this picture. Barf a million times. Look. Barf again. He looks like chester himself.)

 The fire dancer grabbed Kier and started flailing fire all around her!!!!! Twas quite the scare.

 LOVE Davanza’s

 Num num…

Loved our gift!!!!

And that was my weekend :)

The Green Grass.

Provo….
It’s so great and yet so annoying all at the same time.
While I would love to sit and dwell on all of the fantastic things Provo has to offer.. I’m choosing to talk about certain men in Provo. (I feel like this is okay on the account of, I recently did a post about certain girls in Provo.. I’m just evening things out.)
Look at the million engagement pictures you have on your fridge. Guarantee that 80% of them, the girl is more attractive than the guy. Girls seem to have an easier time looking through the outside appearance. 
In Provo the hot girl to hot guy ratio is probably 3:1.. wouldn’t you say? Which then brings about “the grass is greener on the other side” or “ohh myyy goshhh there is so much green grass I just gotta roll down ALL the hills” mentalities. So annoying. There are so many beautiful women in Provo, each of them having something different to bring to the table. One might be very intelligent.. the other might be super funny.. and then the next is extremely spiritual. Of course we all want the full package.. but not every girl in Provo is going to be the complete package. Everyone has their flaws, but yet, boys see one tiny flaw in a girl and think, “well there are 900 other beautiful girls soo see ya!” and the cycle continues until before they know it they are 30 and not married wondering why.
NEWS FLASH TWITS:
find an amazing girl whose flaws you can deal with and forget all the rest.
you WILL NOT find a girl with no flaws.. and there will always be lots of other green grass. 
“you may think the grass is greener on the other side, but if you took the time to water your own grass it would be just as green.”

I have watched so many guys sabotage relationships and let amazing girls slip through their fingers because they were spending too much time worrying about the girls they didn’t have and not enough time worrying about the girl they DID have. Later I will hear them say, “if I could go back, I would do things much differently and treat her much better.”

Men lust after the “hot” they don’t have and forget to take care of the pretty one they do have.
if that sentence didn’t make sense it is because you haven’t read this amazing article.
click here to read it. (its pretty short, and really amazing so read it!)

oh men.

it is true that the world’s ingredients are mostly idiots. 
but there are lots of really good idiots that i love a lot.
example: my best guy friends.
jk they aren’t idiots at all.
last night one of my best friends and i went up to watch the meteor shower.. we made a cute little bed in the back of his truck and went up to the top of sundance and talked about his girl situations and my boy situations and lots of other things. 
i love having guy friends that im close enough to so they can tell me when im being an idiot, when i should stop waiting around for a boy, when i deserve better, etc.
plus boys are zero drama and non emotional.
i just love men.

me and sis start school tomorrow… grrr. im going to need a stats tutor… sooo if anyone is interested, let me know. 
bundled up for the meteor shower
haha i was listening to the news hearing about Bachmann dropping out just as i saw this in the sky. i thought it was funny. i took it as a celebration that Mitt won and a hallelujah for Bachmann stepping down. i am no feminist. im the furthest from a feminist. i really believe a woman has no business being president of a country… women are way too emotional. i also hate feminists who pull the whole, “ugh i just hate when boys open my door.. like what you think i cant do it myself?”
no you idiot.
of course you can open a gosh dang door.
they are so annoying.
i also went to dinner and museums tonight! it was seriously so much fun i loved it. here are some pics from the date!
rawr. dino.
i thought these were pretty.
my flash went wild. clearly… where did i go? 
anyways. this is Kyle and I.
i love butterflies.. at first glance. but if i look for too long i start to relate butterflies to mariah carey and then i just feel nauseated and sometimes i throw up in my mouth. or gag. or full on puke. or none of those things. sometimes all of them. 
i love STARS. i love love love love stars.
so needless to say i was loving the astronomy section at the museum.

when i am a mom.. i am going to wake my kids up and drive to the top of a mountain with donuts and hot coco to watch EVERY single meteor shower. they can be late for school. my family will never miss one! and hopefully by then ill own my own telescope… ahhh. i cant wait for this tradition im starting with my non existant future family.

good morning.

good morning texts.
quite possibly the best thing to wake up to and the best way to start your day.
sweetest thing ever.
and the quote below is so true.
boys forget that girls over analyze everything.
aka when you text us and say good morning we analyze the crap out of that and think, “shut up.. oh my gosh. he is thinking about me when he wakes up! omfgggg!!!! he is too perfect. im in love. what would our babies look like? what do i say back?? holllyyyy chiiiicago im so freaking twitterpated! where is my roommate? that whore. she is supposed to help me with what to say back. oh my gosh i wonder what my bridesmaids will wear? eeeeeeeeeeeek!!!”
(okay thats so not what i really think. im not a freak of nature stage 10 creeepbrain but it is very thoughtful and sweet and perfect.)
greys anatomy tonight!
its finally getting good again.
thank the heavens.
i was about to jump ship…

fashion show? mmm.

so you know how in relief society they will interview the elders quorum and ask them what they dont like about girls and all that and then report back to us what they said and tell us what we can improve on?
yeah okay so thats so great and all, we need to hear what we need to improve on.
buuuuut…
ive heard “the girls just think church is a fashion show” one too many times.
like……im sorry we are so fashionable and have such great outfits at church and always look so good…but that doesnt mean we think its a fashion show.
you know?
i mean i get that some girls take it too far and maybe seem like they are being competitive about “who is wearing the more expensive skirt” whatever. but for most of us we just like clothes and happen to put together some good outfits. i dont know what boys expect us to do?
we come for church. we come to feel the spirit, take the sacrament, and learn. and it just so happens that we like to look good while doing so.
is that such a crime?

GOODbye?

so supposedly we are supposed to find the “good” in “goodbye”..
or at least thats what beyonce says.
i think i found it?
i dont know how youre supposed to tell. maybe its when youre finally content without that person in your life. (check) maybe its when that person never comes into your mind/thoughts/anything.. (half check.. do dreams count? i mean, i cant control that.. and if i had a dream that i went to a movie with this person and left mid movie, leaving him to fend for himself.. i dont think it counts) or maybe its when you have found someone to replace that person. (no check.. but im going for optimism here soo there will be a future check people. ill inform you when there is dont you fret)
“the worst thing you can do is let someone stay in your life longer than they deserve to.”
(hate that im quoting her..)
-Kimora Lee Simmons-
p.s. me and my sister were talking about who we think hottest actors are.. i naturally said Ashton Kutcher and Adam Brody (hot, goofy, nerds) but then my sister said “no no sis its all about james franco.) now ive always seen him in movies and pics and never been completely obsessed. but THEN she showed me a pic of him.. and WOW-ZUHS. suddenly i found myself googling his height, favorite color, favorite food etc. (jk) but im in love. like really im love. we even had a meditation session with his picture as our centerpiece. too far? ah crap. well it was a joke anyways. 

thank you j crew for being so dang perfect. always.

guy talk

“Today I am helping you understand guy-talk. A few things to remember- if he wants to contact you, he will. There are 4 million ways to be in your life. He can tumble you, tweet you, facebook you, friend you, bebo you, drive his bike past your house or actually call you. If he isn’t doing this. He doesn’t like you.

And honestly, if he doesn’t like you, then YOU shouldn’t like him. If he cannot see what a total babeface amazing girl you are then is he even cool? No. I always like to say that the guys I date were only cool because I liked them.”
