10 Things I Hate About You

Well Kristin tagged me and I'm bored, so here are my ten things.

I am... a geek at heart.

I know... everything about Harry Potter and I'm proud of it

I want... a Nikon D90

I have... to iron my shirts

I miss... my tap classes

I hear... the theme song from Mario Bros in my head all the time

I smell... like fish and tempura right now. (thanks for dinner Hoshino's)

I crave... turkey sandwiches w/ sprouts and avocado

I search... for fun and interesting websites everyday

I always... giggle at the most inappropriate moments (Grandpa's funeral, the chapel in the temple, etc)

I believe... that anyone and everyone would want to be my BFF if they only knew me.

I sing... like a rock star when I'm in the car but whisper when I'm in public or in church

I lose... everything, especially chapstick.

I win... being the favorite aunt. Hands down, no contest!

I never... know what to do with my hands in any given situation

I listen... to books on my iPod at work and pull up screens on my computer so I look busy when people walk by. (Kristin and I are pro's at this)

I am scared... that I may drop a baby and of my grandma's basement

I need... to stop watching Lifetime Moment of Truth Movies, but damn I love them!!!

I am happy... when I'm planning a trip, reading a good book or in a book store

I tag... you and your mom - aka Dean, Charity, Stacy, Beth, Corine, Rachel, Jenny, Steph, Lyndsey, Erin Cazier (if you even read this blog Erin), Julie, Jill, Brooke, Tiffany, Megadeath, Michelle, basically if you're reading this I'm tagging you!

I Stand All Amazed!

This past weekend was a very memorable one for me;  I received my endowments. This is something I’ve been thinking about doing for quite a long time, but wanted to make sure I was doing it for the right reasons.

Mt Timpanogos Temple (can you see me in the middle?!)

Well after several lengthy conversations with my parents, siblings and a few close friends, praying and fasting, I knew that I was ready. I called the temple, set the date and then notified friends and family.

I won’t go into details here about my experience, but I will tell you that I’ve never felt more beautiful, loved and calm as I did that day. I also strengthened my testimony about my Savior and His plan for us. I haven’t stopped smiling since Saturday, but thank heavens I stopped crying. It was such and amazing emotional experience for me and I’m so happy to have been able to share it with my family and friends!

Here are a few photos from the day.

Julie, me and Jill

The Johnson Clan! No, we aren't at Prom but you'd think we are by the way we're posed. My defiance is shown by tilting to a slightly different angle.

Thank you to everyone who was able to be there for me. I loved being able to spend such a special day with so many loved ones - even if I didn't get half of you in the pictures.
