Lollipops and Raindrops

I'll tell you guys a secret. I started a private blog, and that's why this one has been neglected. It's nothing against you guys, it's just hard to post about very personal things sometimes.. but I still needed a way to vent about them.

- Today the boyfriend and I went to eat at Kneaders, which has delicious sandwiches. I mean.. they're real dang good. No wonder people were so excited that it was coming to St. George.

- We (and by we I mean... I) also got some cupcakes from The Sweet Tooth Fairy..


Don't worry, I shared.

- Sometimes I think this town would be perfect if it had a few more things: 1. A Wienershnitzel. Don't hate, they have the most delicious chili cheese fries on this planet. 2. A decent mall. With options other than Hollister and Aeropostale. And with a Victoria's Secret. 3. A Super Target.

- Boyfriend leaves in just under a month and a half. It sinks in a little more each day that soon, I won't be seeing him for a long time.

-I'm going to miss him. :-(

- I got some ace advice the other day, while I was complaining about my job and not getting enough hours. "Apply for other places." "But I won't get anything." "How do you know if you don't try? Just try." Simple, right? Why didn't I think of that..

- I have concluded that French tourists are my least favorite. I sure love me some friendly German's though. Also, I sometimes think that this job is turning me into a negative person. I don't want that to happen. I always want people to think I'm a happy person.

- I recently got in contact with the missionary who baptized me, and he told me that when someone asked him to tell them a story of someone he baptized, he told them about me. It basically made my heart soar, then drop.. because I think I'm a disappointing convert. I'm a work in progress though. I'm definitely not perfect, and I do struggle a lot.. but I know deep down that what I believe is true. I just need to work on becoming better at showing it, I suppose.


- Life really is beautiful. Not every day, but I love how the good always makes the bad go away in the blink of an eye. I think that's the most beautiful thing about life.

- I miss my dog so much.

Whether we joined the church later in life or not...we are all a work in progress. Keep your head up high. If you see you need to make changes...good for you! It means you are humble enough to make changes. It's so easy to be hard on ourselves.

I miss my dog too. It's funny how much your love your heart can hold for a furry little critter. I have a Super Target 10 minutes away from my house in Georgia, and I sorely miss it when I'm in St Louis...they don't have any at all.

Kneaders and Sweet Tooth Fairy - what more could you ask for? Where's your bf going?

ok, 1. I want those cupcakes in my face right now and 2. I hear you on the shopping thing. I hate living in the middle of nowhere, really hard for when school shopping comes around...

Those cupcakes are making me drool.

The good making the bad go away? It really is the best part. <3

i love that you got in contact with the missionary who baptized you, i'm sure that meant a lot to him! a girl that my husband baptized recently got in contact with us through my blog and he was so excited.

my other thoughts on this post: your dog is so cute and those cupcakes look delish. :)

I agree with Autumn, we all have work to do. It is the fact that you continue to try and do what you can is what matters.
