basically a grandma

I feel bad because you have heard and will hear this same speech over and over again, but it's what I'm dealing with right now, so you'll have to deal.

Growing up is weird.  Still.

Today I'm so grateful for those in my life who make me feel normal and worth it.

Like this kid:
Maybe I'm not normal...

I've never been one to discuss my relationships.  There were times I was really felt like the baby and I think I felt like I wasn't supposed to feel the things I did.

I'm still not good at it, but I've been practicing.  It's been hard and embarrassing, but I think it's worth it.

I'm thankful for my awesome friends and sweet sisters/cousins who listen and tell me that what I'm saying isn't dumb and wrong.

I'm not dumb for feeling like an 18 year old.  I'm not wrong for feeling and worrying things beyond my 18 years.

It's life and it will be fine.

celebrity sighting

The other day I was at my favorite Target and I happened upon this gent in the pharmacy:

Turns out he's actually this gent:

so funny...

drool is still funny when you're 18

I went to the dentist today.
I haven't had a cavity in forever, but today I had
3 itty bitty ones filled.

I love our dentist.
He's always very nice and helpful.
So helpful that he is extra generous with the numbing.

Anywho, the whole left side of my face is numb.
Up in my eyes and into my nose and down on my chin.

I was thankful for it during, but now I just feel gross.
I don't like it.
So I'm going to nap and hope it goes away.

Happy Hump Day.

Edit: This may be a bad idea, but I thought I'd post a hilarious picture of my face.  You can definitely see how tired I feel.
don't have nightmares!

Love, Erin

"that's because it is delicious!"

this week:

had a fantastic spring break with my favorite sister in missouri
(not to be confused with my favorite sisters everywhere else)

to the same mission my cousin is in

picked my apartment for BYU this fall
not exactly what I wanted, but I have a feeling it's going to be perfect

got some fun things to add to my wardrobe

went rock climbing for the first time
found out I am awesome at tying knots, but still terrified of heights
but I did it!

went on an awesome date, laughed a lot, thought about the future

couldn't sleep 

and listened to these guys all night long
  it's been a while
