Senior Season Tribute

Just wanted to post a few pictures of my cute team, and show everybody how cool my team is at Dixie State! Volleyball has legitimately been my life for the past 10 years now! I've been playing since 7th grade, and now I'm almost done with my Senior Season in college. It has been a bitter-sweet thing to be a part of. Volleyball has put me through both the hardest and best times in my life. Believe it or not, it has taken me all ten of these years to feel like I have finally had ONE successful season. I've been on both bad teams and good teams, but never felt like I had a season that I could say, "Man, that was THE year- MY year"- UNTIL NOW...

Now, I never beat Mountain View in high School... I never went to Nationals at SCC... And I'm not gonna win a title at Dixie State... But my team this year DID beat the NUMBER 1 team in our conference in 3 STRAIGHT GAMES... and I've never felt more like a winner on a winning team.................. and my mom got to be there... and so did my dad... and so did Chandler, my little sister... and so did my hero, my sister Kami.

All these years I've looked up to Kami. Kami was a great volleyball player. She beat Mountain View in High School, she went to Nationals at SCC, and she was an ALL-AMERICAN SETTER. Kami taught me all that I know about volleyball, and she's helped me through all of the years that I've played. I couldn't have gotten as far as I have without her!

Only 4 games left of my volleyball career... these are for you Kam! Thanks for making me feel like an all-american! xoxo

Its Official

It's official! This is my first time blogging and I'm trying to figure everything out!...

So I've had this "thing" for a long time now that I felt silly having a blog as a "single person," (no offense to those that are single) and I never set up a blog because I always thought it was just for "married people." WELL... I ALMOST held up to my beliefs about the blogging world... and now I have a blog!

So what great event besides marriage could possibly bring me to break my rule you ask? WELL....

It's official! Me and Chris are ENGAGED! I figured that was close enough :)

So here's THE STORY:

As many of you know I am currently living in St. George Utah, playing volleyball at Dixie State University. Well, I came home to visit my family and Chris a week before our fall break. So for fall break I decided to just stay in St. George. Chris, not being able to be away from me for more than a week :) said that he would come up and visit me for fall break. Chris asked me if I wanted to go spend the day in Vegas for fun, because there's not much to do in St. George, and because Vegas is only about an hour and a half away. Well, Vegas is always fun, so of course we went! When we got there Chris made reservations for dinner, but the place we wanted to go to, couldn't get us in until 8:30. So, Chris suggested that we walk down the strip and look around and shop and what not... Well, we happened to work our way over to the The Venetian when Chris ever-so smoothly said "Hey, have you ever been to the top of the Eiffel Tower?" And I hadn't! So we went and got tickets, and rode the elevator to the very top! It was such a sweet view! We watched the Bellagio water show, and then over my shoulder, Chris asked me, "So you wanna marry me?" I turned my head so fast and he was holding the ring out in front of him! I started freaking out!! I was so surprised and totally shocked; I didn't even see it coming! It was so romantic and he did it so cute :) I can't wait to spend the rest of eternity with him!
