Dear Valentines Day,

2.16.2011


Remember how I was determined to have a bad Valentines Day this year? That sounds super depressing, angry, and/or bitter. A large majority of my friends now have husbands, fiances, or boyfriends. So being single this year was going to be a little weird and, well, lonely. Now I just sound like I am whining. But remember how I have the BEST family and friends and my Valentines Day was amazing? Imagine coming home after work to a room covered in hearts, with flowers, a cute decoration, and cards from your nephews. That is what I got. My brother Ryan and his family made sure that I had the best Valentines Day. Beyond that, my mom never fails and sent the traditional carmel chocolate heart. It has not come yet, but she promised me it is on the way, and that alone made me happy. Last I went out to dinner with a few of the girls. Good time, no great time. Happy Valentines Day everyone.






Love,

Dear Weepies,

2.10.2011

I was looking at some of my blogs that belong to my friends and I found this little gem in one of Megan's posts. First of all, I love the Weepies. Second of all, I love the movement in the video. I am amazed that someone drew all of this.

*Warning: This video is actually heartbreaking.*

Dear Tea Party,


Two of my friends, Mikelle and Nicole, turned 22 this month. So we [ Michelle Cole and I] got all the girls together for a birthday social at The Chocolate (which was delicious).

Here are the invitations we made.



Some pictures from during the evening.

Dear Creative Side,

I have just been in a mood to craft. For some reason I just want to do crafts [well crafts and have a dance party, I have been in a dancing mood] all day every day. My favorite crafting website currently? PS. I made this. It is full of gems. Ideas for clothing, earrings, decorations, the list is endless.

Maybe as I make crafts I will post them up here for you to see.
Crafter for life.

Love,

Dear Weekend,

2.07.2011

A very enjoyable weekend? Yes. I had a lot of fun with friends and family. A very productive weekend? No. I got about 10% of the schoolwork done that I was supposed to, so that is always promising.

Thursday (that is right, my weekend starts Thursday basically thanks to no class on Friday) I went out to surprise my nephew Dallyn and watch his basketball game. Little kids playing basketball is actually really entertaining. After that I went over to their home to play with all the boys, Dallyn wanted to show me something, Smith wanted me to play the Wii, and Lars wanted to play trucks. Kari Dawn wasn't feeling well and Ryan was working late so I was glad I could be of some entertainment to the boys so they weren't bothering her heaps. They fed me too, 50 nugget bucket for the whole family. After that I just came home and visited some friends, relaxed, and got into bed early.

Friday I woke up for a study group. My commercial recreation class has a case study due on Tuesday, so Johnny, Futi, Michelle, and I got together to finish it up. After that I went to work, then Michelle and I went to the Flash office, and then Chick Fil A because we had both been craving it. We ran into a buddy, Tyson Camps, and ended up sitting in the mall food court for about two hours chatting. Once that was done we went home and got ready for the evening's festivities. Hannah Lockhart moved to Washington DC (she is going to rock out there) so we went to her going away party and then we met up with Amanda Dayley for the Black Tie Event. It was way fun. I always love a good dance party.

Saturday I slept in a little. When I got up Michelle came over so we could study and go take our marketing midterm. After that we went to the BYU game and sat with Ryan and my nephews. BYU won. It was a good game. Then I went home and cleaned some while I figured out my evening plans. I ended up going out to dinner and to play the XBox Kinect with Jameson. I feel like the Kinect could be the greatest invention... just saying.

Sunday I slept in a lot. I always try to on fast Sunday because church is so late and I get so hungry. I woke up and went to church. We got a new Bishop and 1st counselor. I am so grateful for Bishop Owens and Brother Savage and for all of the wonderful things they have done for me. They are amazing men and have been great over the last year and a half. I am excited to get to know Bishop Porter and Brother Hughes. During the third hour we did a "shoe date". All the girls took off one shoe and put it in a basket for the boys to pick one for a date. Michael Bunn drew my shoe. I am excited to get to know him better. After church I went to Salt Lake City with Taylor and Ethan. We went to Taylor's house (and his friend's Scott for a little) to watch the Super Bowl. Taylor's parents made the most wonderful food. It was great. After that I just came home to call my family and get ready for the new week.

Overall, great weekend. I had a great time.

Love,
Deidre

Dear Eric Edmunds,

Happy birthday brother!
I just want you to know how amazing and wonderful I think you are. I am really glad that we have become such good friends over the last few years. You mean a lot to me. Thank you for taking the time to chat on the phone. Thank you for taking a 24 hour trip with me to go watch Elton John. Thank you for watching movies with me when we are both home. Thank you for buying dinner when we'd go out. Thank you for having a high kick contest over Christmas break. Thank you for always making me laugh. Thank you for helping find new cool music and always updating my ipod with sweet tunes. I am lucky to have you in my life. You are an amazing friend and an even better brother. You are hard working, dedicated, and loyal. You have been a great example to me of taking the time to enjoy what is around me and figuring out what suites me best. I love you very much. Hope your birthday was the best.

Love,
Deidre
