My crazy life...

I just wanted to take a quick minute and acknowledge how very blessed I am. It's been on my mind a lot lately and I'd regret it if I didn't mention it. I'm enrolled in a class right now where you have to focus on things you're thankful for, and notice the simple things in life, and I have been very aware this semester of the many blessings in my life. I have a great life. Filled with incredible people. And I've had some awesome experiences. Not to say that nothing ever goes wrong in my life, and I don't have trials or struggles, but having said that, I'm also very grateful for those experiences as well. And of course there are things I want, and things I need, but more importantly, there are so many things that I'm lucky to have and things that I am fortunate enough to experience. So take a minute and reflect on your life, and hopefully you'll realize how very lucky we all are, and how enriched our lives are. Thanks to the all people in my life, particularly my roommates and my mom, who do so much for me. LOVE YOU ALL!!

I don't know if you noticed, but Saturday was an absolutely gorgeous day! The sun was shining, it was warm out, and it was a perfect day to take a trip to the zoo. My sister got a season pass, so we decided to take advantage of the beautiful day and get up there and visit the animals.

We took my nephews, Caleb and Mason, and it's always fun going places with little kids. They get so excited and make it so much fun!

Ryan, my bro in law, was pretty psyched too!

The penguins are my #1 favorite animal at the zoo. They were so cute and I could have watched them all day. Except for the two in the background. Something weird was going on there.

Giraffes are my #2 favorite animal. I think they are so unique and interesting, even though they smell really, really bad. We all have our moments, right?

Like I said before, it was really sunny and bright outside and Caleb said his eyes were hurting him. So Ryan handed over his sunglasses. I thought it was adorable, so I told Caleb to strike a "cool" pose. I think he nailed it. Such a thug.

I tried to be as "cool" too, but he was tough competition. Love you Cabe man!

Seeing the animals was great and all, but it was mostly fun just to hang out with the fam. My mom and sister are so great, and it's always fun to be with them. LOVE YOU BOTH SO MUCH!!
