dear blog,

this is my one hundredth post. (thank you, thank you very much)

i was going to write 100 somethings (i.e. 100 things i wanna do before i die, 100 people i really love-- yeah, a stretch i know, 100 things i'm grateful for, you get the point), but every time i tried, it just wasn't working out (hence the reason i haven't posted in AGES).

on a different note, (this has a point, i promise) yesterday was the best. day. EVER.

i woke up to my FIRST alarm (if you only knew how groundbreaking this news is). and i looked pretty cute, let's be serious. becca and i straight-up ditched our (stupid) culture class (yay!) and went to eat unlimited french toast at kneaders. (yummmmm) then mission prep we graded our "celebration" (a nicer way of saying test) and i learned a lot AND i got an A. then my other class was just lovely, (i.e. everyone was jokey and there was no quiz on the reading i didnt do). then harriet and i had our usual wednesday lunch break (sans eric, boo). so we met in the lib and teased malfoy for a bit and then bought samwiches in the cougareat. the cougareat was full, so we sat at a table with a random chick. then we proceeded to be silly and giggle a lot and then we made friends with ashleigh (the girl we were sitting with) and it was just simply delightful. then we walked around the cougareat looking for some people (this was hilarious f.y.i. and eric, you better be sad you missed out). then we decided to go get cupcakes instead of going to class. so we skipped and giggled our way to my car and went to the cocoabean and had some delicious cupcakes and hotchocolate. (also yum). then we came back and visited caleb at work and were just TOO goofy. then i went to work and work was good. and then i babysat davis. and he was so good and went straight to bed and i just had some lovely alone time. then i picked up lauren and we went home and harriet and caleb were there and then we all chilled for a bit and then went to cj's and then went to eric's to watch psych and then we took malfoy home and drove around for a bit talking and thinking about our lovely day. PLUS i got a letter from hermana casebolt AND roy is on the cover of the new era! and today i am wearing a fabulous bedazzled sweater and staff meeting was fun and ho and i had soup for lunch and work was good and harriet's dad took us to zupla's for dinner and we went to the airport to pick up olwen and there were a ton of families waiting for missionaries-- so precious! now i am sitting here with jessica and megan listening to christmas music and laughing and crafting and decorating.

basically, yesterday and today were the best. and nothing even especially spectacular happened. i was just having a happy day with happy events and with people i love to be around.

the POINT of this hundredth post, and of this blog and a big point in my life, i think is that it is the little things that count the most. "by small and simple things are great things brought to pass" (alma 37:6) that is the point. the best days are when you feel good and when you get outside of yourself and when you make friends and say hi to strangers. and all those little things add up to equal great things.

much love (times ONE HUNDRED),

p.s. i'm happy.


  1. I like this. And I like that you guys "giggled [your] way to the car." Let's do that more often please.

  2. You are such a joy to me! I love you. Not so happy you skipped classes, but...I guess I did that once (or twice) and I am not half as bright as you are, so, happy you had a happy day and a lovely 100th wish...that they continue to the 1,000,000,000.... Love, Mom

  3. Congratulations on your 100th! I had a dream about you the other night. It was weird. You were mad at me for watching a football game on t.v. and ignoring you. Like THAT would ever happen, I don't watch football games and how could I ever ignore you? You're too fun. But I woke up thinking, "Rochelle will always be my friend, won't she?" Won't you?

    I love you.

  4. I love this. I love you. I miss you!
