Goals for 2010

With the new year coming up on us, of course we all are thinking of New Year's Resolutions we would like to accomplish this year. Me included in that. However, I made a list of 27 goals this past February of what I would accomplish before I turn 28. So my list of goals for 2010 include a few things I need to finish before turning 28 in Febs, and then the rest are for the rest of the year. My top 10 goals for 2010 are as follows:

1. Run the top of Utah full marathon in September. So I will be spending the next nine months training myself to run 26.2 miles.
2. Read the Book of Mormon. I had the goal to finish it before February, I'm currently in Helaman, but my dad gave my whole family a challenge to finish reading it before he does, so I have decided to include myself in this challenge.
3. Finish reading Les Miserables.
4. Get a pedicure-feet scare me so this is a hard one! I don't want someone else touching my feet with their hands...
5. Completely pay off all my debt.
6. For the last few years I've gone on a trip over President's Weekend since it's so close to my own little gift to myself. So I would like to go somewhere fun for President's Day weekend!
7. Finish memorizing the lyrics to We Didn't Start the Fire by Billy Joel. I'm so close!
8. Write 2 letters/cards to friends/family each month.
9. If I stay in first grade, I would like to completely organize all my files and my classroom. If I switch grade levels, I want to be totally prepared beforehand in teaching it!
10. Watch all 3 Lord of the Ring movies in one day, and really feel more confident in my driving stick shift abilities!!

Can't Get Enough!

I watched (500) Days of Summer and loved it! I really loved a song from the movie, I keep playing it on repeat. I've share it with a few people and none of them seem to see it the way I do. That's the great thing about music!! Maybe it's just speaking to me right now in my current state of life...So I'm sharing it with all of you!

Sweet Disposition by Temper Trap:

sweet disposition
never too soon
oh reckless abandon
like no one's
watching you

a moment, a love
a dream aloud
a kiss, a cry
our rights, our wrongs
a moment, a love
a dream aloud
a moment, a love
a dream aloud

so stay there
cause i'll be comin over
and while our bloods still young
it's so young
it runs
and we won't stop til it's over
won't stop to surrender

songsof desperation
Iplayed them for you
a moment, a love
a dream aloud
a kiss, a cry
our rights, our wrongs
a moment, a love
a dream, aloud
a moment, a love
a dream aloud

Aspen's 8!!

My niece Aspen, turns eight today! Happy Birthday Spenners! I love you Aspen, and I'm so happy you are a part of my family. I can't believe you are already 8! I remember the day you were born, I was SOO excited to see and hold my first niece! And now look at you, so tall and beautiful and grown up. I love your fun and sweet spirit, how incredibly loving you are to everyone. You are so smart, and I'm so proud of you, for how hard you work in school. You are such a great big sister to Libby and Abbie. You are a good example for them to follow. Thank you for always loving me the way that you do, you always make me feel special when I'm around you. I treasure the memories I have shared with you, and look forward to making more! Happy Birthday, beautiful lady!!
