My Grandma, A Hero in My Life

My grandma's 80th birthday is coming up and I am making her a reflection video for her birthday party. I was able to go to her house and look through her scrapbooks and read biographies and stories about her life. She is such a remarkable woman and I look up to her so much. She has gone through so much in her life and lost so many people dear to her but she still just says how "blessed" she is. She is the most loving, caring, and unselfish person I have ever met. She has this time line of her life since the 1970s and some of the most significant things she wrote about were things like "Duvae visited with me for a few days." She remembers things that no one else does and it is so sweet of her. She has lived such an amazing life and I look up to her so much. I couldn't stop crying because of how proud I am to have such an amazing grandma and to see what an incredible life she has lived. I hope that someday my granddaughter will be able to feel the same way about me. I love you Grandma, you are such a blessing to everyone around you.

St. George

Two weeks ago I went down to St. George with my friends and had such a good time! We drove down in Chris's sweet Audi that I love and we belted out the Glee soundtrack and all of Lil's great music, more specifically her "Diet Coke" mix. We spent our days relaxing and playing at the pool. It was so so so hot though! At night we played games and watched movies. The last night I was there we played so many games and laughed so hard!! I am so terrible at the question game, I am actually pretty bad at all games but oh well. Lil, Linds, and I also had fun squeezing into the two person convertible. I had to sink behind Lindsay's back every time we were around cops or lots of cars. It was a short trip for me because I had to get home for work but it was so much fun and I loved being with the girls! I slept for 45 minutes the last night and we woke up to watch the sunrise before I flew home. I love you girls and I am so glad I could go with you!
