Seriously. How hard is it to get a cute Mormon boyfriend? It's not like I'm this nasty beast.

I am currently obsessed with this Harry Potter Tribute video. I will never be able to come to terms with this series being over.

Dear Life

Dear life,
You better have something better in store for me, because right now, you really suck.

Completely over it

I'm sick of people telling me, "go get a job" whether their joking or serious. Don't you think I have been trying? Don't you think I have applied to places? I've applied to over 70 places by the way. It's not my fault that the job market sucks and that most people aren't eager to hire someone with little experience. I'm over people treating me like I'm a huge lazy blob doing nothing. As if their annoying words are going to help me find a job. Just shut up and get off my back. Ugh ok, rant over. Now, it's been at least two weeks since I was told I was going to find out about this nannying job. I am extremely anxious, because this is a job that I really want and think would be perfect for me. Please pray that I get this job. Thanks.

Shawn's Service

How do you celebrate the life of someone you miss? You get together with your friends and others and talk about your memories with that person. Today, I got to do just that, except in a MASSIVE church with a BILLION people. It just goes to show how many people loved and cared for Shawn! There was a lot of music, and that's how he would have wanted it! I felt blessed to be able to sing with some of my friends from Eaglecrest and do it in honor of Shawn. His spirit was there with us throughout the entire service and hope everyone felt his presence there with us. We got to listen to many of the songs written by Shawn and it was amazing how all of the lyrics seemed to fit the situation. Like he knew he was going to leave us at the tender age of 20 and that we would need these words to help us through the grief. I forgot just how cute he was when he played guitar. He always had this adorable, child-like face when he concentrated on something! As everyone was sharing their memories this morning I was able to think about a few of mine. Like when he would steal my purse in choir and kick my chair forward! How he would smile at me sometimes during choir when our eyes met. And my favorite memory of all, slow dancing to "Don't want to miss a thing" with him singing it in my ear. That was my Sophomore year. But it feels like yesterday. I only wish I had been able to tell him just how much he meant to me. He knows now. And I feel his comfort in these difficult times. Today, I wrote a poem for Shawn and I would like to share it with you:

For my beloved Friend, Shawn

Silently, he took you in his arms and you flew away. He had a better plan for you, and

so, you could not stay. He wrapped his arms around you and said, "Hello, My Son," he

wiped the joyous tears from your face and whispered, "Well done." You looked down

upon us and saw that we were weeping and let your spirit touch our hearts of

memories we'd be keeping. You left your music here to stay, so we know you're not too

far away. Your voice will be heard from the Heavens above, singing down to us of your

endless love. You taught so many lessons just by being you. Your smile, your art, your

gentle heart, is sure to help us through."

Love, Keeley

One of my favorite songs by Shawn:

Shawn's Viewing

I have been to a couple viewings in my life and every one is uncomfortable. For me, I am used to seeing an elderly person in the casket. It's a THOUSAND times more uncomfortable and staggering when it is your friend in the casket. Someone who you spent a lot of time with, grew up with, and thought you would share more life experiences with. Someone who is the SAME AGE as you are. 20 years old. Shawn was 20 years old. I am 20 years old. It's unbelievable. He looked like the same old Shawn in his jeans and red and black plaid shirt. I wanted to hug him, but I couldn't, and I felt like it would be a bit odd for me to touch him. But I really wanted to. I wanted to put my hand on his and tell him how much I love him and that I miss him and that I wish he could come back. Up until tonight it seemed like this unimaginable daze that we were all in, but finally seeing him tonight, I knew he was no longer here. Officially. I hate it when things in life get all too real and slap you in the face. But it needed to happen, and not just for me. We all needed to see that he really was gone and come to terms with it and accept it. It's a bit eerie. But it's also reassuring. I am almost didn't go. I'm glad I did. Even if it was just to see Shawn's sweet face one more time.

A Nigh In Remembrance of Shawn Yoho

Last night was great. We were all able to gather together and share stories of Shawn and be with each other. It was held at Shawn's church Trinity Baptist and it was really well put together. There were two rooms where you could leave a video message for Shawn's family, a room for watching a slide show of Shawn, and food! At around 7:30 we all gathered in the chapel and shared our memories of Shawn and what he taught each of us and how he touched our lives. I was surprised to see Shawn's sister, Sam there and her parents. I am glad they were able to come though, and hear about all the ways their son (and brother) touched the lives of others and made a difference in the world. I recorded a video of David and Juan singing "Where will we go?" I will try to figure out how to post it on here!

The Incredible Shawn Yoho

In all of my life I have never met a more selfless, kind, and talented person than Shawn Yoho. His smile was infectious and lit up every room. He always had a good attitude and a reason to be happy. His faith in God and our Savior Jesus Christ was always a marvelous example to me. He loved God and his actions showed it. Shawn was blessed with one of the most beautiful voices and touched the lives of many through his music. He was kind to everyone and always helped those in need of comfort or attention. He gave great hugs and advice. His heart was twice the size of a normal man. I am horribly sad and will miss him every day. But I know that he is full of joy and completely healed in the arms of our Savior. I will never forget all of the laughs we shared. I feel immensely blessed that God thought me important enough to be touched by Shawn Yoho's friendship. I love you Shawn. Very much.

Your Friend,

I want to get married!

I want to get married and have cute chubby babies and give them cute names. I am impatient. Let's go, life!!

New Lifestyle

I am trying a new diet called the Snack Factor Diet, and am hoping to get back in shape! I am still trying to figure out the diet a bit and am trying to get used to it. But renting a diet book and 3 work out videos has to count for something right?! I am thinking of blogging about my diet and posting photos and updating about my weight loss. And it would really help me get motivated if i knew people were reading my blog and checking up on my progress. If you are someone who can help me out by reading about my dieting adventures, leave me a comment! I would really appreciate it! Thanks! XOXO

This is my story (Part 2)

This is my story (Part 1)


I am really anxious to find out if I got this nannying job or not! I REALLY hope I get it because it would be perfect! The family is in my parent's ward, and only live about 1 minute from my house. And I just love to take care of babies! Crossing my fingers! I really need this job! Positive thoughts! :)

Emma Watson

I just LOVE Emma Watson, I think she is such a great role model for kids these days! She is smart, independent, and true to herself. She constantly talks about the importance of education and how girls shouldn't be afraid to be smart!

Every time I paint my nails they turn out terrible! I can usually get them to look decent, but I end up smudging them before they are dry because I don't have enough patience to wait! I need to get better at this! Here's a pic of my nails before they got messed up!

The Holidays!

This year we went to my Grandma Pat's house for Christmas. We went up the day before Christmas Eve and spent time with my Aunt KK, Reed, and Livi! It was so fun being up there and relaxing and playing games. On Christmas Eve, my Uncle Mike and Aunt Kaycee, and all my cousins came up! Kian and Ella were loving getting to spend so much time with their cousins! They got to have sleep overs and play games! It was wonderful being at my Grandma Pat's house on Christmas! It has been years since we spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with them! A few days later, we went up to Johnstown to spend a few nights with my Grandpa John and Grandma Charlotte! We exchanged gifts and had lots of fun! I got a $50 gift card to Barnes and Noble! It was great!! :) Kian and Ella got gift cards to Build A Bear Workshop and they LOVED it! It was fun getting to watch them pick out their bears, name them, and dress them! They had such a blast! It was great being in Johnstown and I wish we could have stayed longer! On New Years Eve I went over to my friend Lindsey's house and played games, talked and went crazy during the countdown! I love her to pieces! And I'm so glad I got to see her before she goes back to school! Overall, the holidays were WONDERFUL this year and I'm so grateful to have such a wonderful family and great friends! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Did I make an idiot out of myself?

Well, it's been 15 days since I gave him the letter and still haven't heard anything. Surely I can't be THAT clueless when it comes to flirting....
