Weekend Full of Surprises.

Well, it's me again.
What a weekend I had.
Let's start with Thursday.

Thursday I was invited to go to dinner up in Park City by a dear family I know from back home. They are the sweetest people. We ate at Chimayo and it was super Yummy. Here is a picture of me with Faith and Andrew.

Friday was pretty normal. I babysat Lexi in the morning and then got my hair done after. I did the blonde ombre. I was shocked at first but now I love it. 

Saturday is where things get good. Here was my plan for the day. Wake up, go to the testing center and take my math test, go babysit the Wakley girls, come home, do homework. Pretty basic, right? Life had a different plan. This might be too much info, but once a month I get awful cramps (please put two and two together on this one). It just so happened that Saturday morning mother nature decided to visit and give me the worst cramps I have EVER had. They were to the point where I felt like I was going to faint because of all the pain. I decided to try and hike up to campus anyways. I made it about a block and had to sit on the pavement to keep myself from fainting. After much thought (sitting on the pavement) I decided there was no way I could physically make it up to campus. I turned around and barely made it in my apartment before falling on the floor. Exciting, huh? I was hurting so bad I took a bath in the tub (NEVER have I EVER done that because it is so nasty, that's how desperate I was). So while in the bathtub I text my neighbor, Rachel. I told her to find me some boys who could give me a blessing. After I got dressed I had them come over and they gave me the most wonderful priesthood blessing. I instantly felt calmer and could feel my pain slowly going away. I said a prayer of thanks to Heavenly Father for allowing me to feel better. I was so grateful for those boys who early on a Saturday were kind enough to come to my aid. So next on my list was babysitting. I drive all the way there in my sweat pants, hair up, and flip flops expecting to dye easter eggs with the girls. I get there, open the door and hear, "SURPRISE!" My amazing aunts and cousins had thrown me a surprise birthday party. I felt so loved, and so grateful that I was feeling better! We had yummy food and I got to spend quality time with the girls in my family. How lucky/grateful/thankful/loved am I! 

Sunday was Easter. I went to church and then to my grandmas that evening for dinner with everyone. I love Easter. It's my favorite holiday. It's the one day where a more-than-average-amount of people celebrate Jesus Christ. What an amazing day. I am so grateful that He is Risen and that I live today because of him and  his atonement.

I missed being home. Here is a picture of my parents after church Sunday.
Overall I had a good weekend. I am so lucky and I am so blessed.

BYU. Westmore. Anxiety. Family. Trusting. MY 5 YEARS IN UTAH.

For me, it’s usually night when all the feels start hitting and I get all sorts of nostalgic. August brings so many challenges for me in many ways. Once August hits it means summer is finally coming to an end and even though I’m usually ready to go back to work, the stress starts to creep in. Going into my 4th year seems bizarre. I don’t feel as if I’m a seasoned teacher, but since I’m not worried about the first day of school I think that says something. August also is the month where 5 years ago I took a big risk and moved to Utah. I left the comfort of my sweet southern home and stepped out on my own. Since 5 years seems like an eternity and a second all at the same time, I decided to write down the 5 most important things that have happened to me since I moved here.
1.Attending and graduating from BYU. I loved my time at BYU. I ran through my experience and I don’t regret that at all. I always knew the college lifestyle wasn’t for me, so getting through it fast was a blessing. I …

A Letter to Asher Rae.

Baby Asher,
Your momma is currently in labor and in a few hours you'll make your grand debut into this world. From the moment I knew you were coming I was in shock and how much my heart could grow. I work with sweet children all day and I love them so much. The love I already have for you is so different. You'll be the first grandchild of my parents, and you'll be my first ever niece. You're coming into a world that is incredibly hard and difficult. With your amazing parents in your life you'll be taught how to be strong and to be valiant in all circumstances. Your dad, my brother, is an excellent human being. He is dedicated, he is a dreamer, he is a hard worker, and he will be the most amazing father. Your mom is so beautiful. She is loving, she is patient, and she loves your dad so much. Your grandma, my mom, is SO excited for you. She will love you and spoil you, but she will also help you when things get hard. Your Grandma Forsyth is a tough woman. The toughes…

Coming to an end.

Considering my last post was in October, this morning I woke up and finally wanted to let the fingers type and do the talking. Since October my life has changed and I have grown so much. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and I also always knew that I have both of my parents running through my blood. What this means for me is that I have this incredible drive to push myself to limits that haven't been set. My beautiful mother gave me passion for education. She constantly sets the example of the most excellent educator and one day I hope to be as successful as she is and was in the classroom. My mother gave me the realistic expectations that come with teaching, such as not always getting my way or having things work out in the way I would like them to. Bless her soul for being my constant supporter. My father gave me the drive to work hard and to never give up. He works construction and there hasn't been one thing that he hasn't finished once he set his mind to it. He …
