Full Bloom

Everything that I love about spring is "springing" right now and even if my nose is stuffy and my eyes are watery from my obscene allergies, I am all smiles. Popcorn is popping on the apricot trees and it surely smells soooo sweet. Utah has never been more beautiful, especially with the mountains still capped white with snow while the pastel blooms are finally coming out to enjoy the sun. The air is still crisp and chills you to the bone, but the light of the sun is finally awakening everything it touches and it is all so beautiful to me. I have never been much of an "I love spring" kind of girl but Utah might just change my mind about all that. I took a quick trip to the great SLC to snap some pictures of these cotton candy trees at the state capitol building and man oh man was it worth it. I find something new to love about SLC every single time I make the drive over and this time it was the capitol building in all its glory. The outside, the inside...it's all my favorite. Everywhere you looked little pink petals were dancing in the wind and the air smelt so fresh and floral. Hey Utah, I kinda like you.

Some cool things are on the horizon. 
First and foremost, I finally got a consistent and well-paying job! Yay for not having to stress the heck out about money anymore! I'm still nannying, I've just finally found a family that has consistent hours and well behaved children. It's a little bit of a jaunt to Pleasant Grove 2 days a week but its well worth it to not be sitting around bored out of my mind everyday. I also work part time tuesday/thursday at Spoon It Up Frozen Yogurt right next to campus now too so that's rather exciting. Come visit me at work and maybe I'll give ya a free sample cup (jokes on you....all the sample cups are free). 
Next, although sort of touched on in my last blog post, I have decided to not attend BYU in the spring/summer (or at all for that matter) and instead have applied to UVU with the major of Graphic Design! Who knew I was artsy and creative because I sure didn't. I am way excited and way nervous for summer term to begin but I know that this is where I belong and I am finally in a major that I love and am excited about (3rd times the charm I guess). 
Still waiting for a call or email from Disney. Keep crossing your fingers for me!
And finally....New York City is in one week from today! Can you tell I'm excited? 'Cause I sure as heck am. You best believe I already have all my outfits packed and that I have a countdown going down to the minuet on my phone. I'm just so excited to be going to my favorite city for a business trip for my favorite job (youtube) with my favorite people (my parents). 
The only thing that could make life better right now is if it would stop freaking snowing in Utah already! #ihatethesnow
