to death, and am completely sick of it!
Anyways...  here are my overplayed addictions

Pinterest. A Virtual Dream Board

Like the billions of other women out there.
I will admit to my Pinterest obsession. I get on it at least every hour.
And pin my little heart away.
The question I would keep asking myself is why am I so obsessed?
Why do girls spend hours on a website, 
pinning things they are likely not to ever get or have?
Well I think we pin because of hope.
When I see things I love on Pinterest, I pin it in hopes that one day I will have it.
Like it has been told before, Pinterest is a virtual dream board. 
All the things that an individual pins, speaks to who they are
and what they aspire to be and have in the future.
When I go shopping I check my pins to see what kind of outfit I want.
When I go to workout, I look at a workout I pinned because I want a certain body
I look at my pins when I go to make some food, because I pinned a recipe that I wanted 
to make one day. 
Though some would say (like I used too) that you will never have the things
you pin on Pinterest. 
I say different.
Those pins of yours, will appear in your life sometime in the future.
IF you are willing to work for them.
I have made about 15 of the recipes that I have pinned,
because I actually made an effort to make use of them.
I have bought about 20 pieces of clothing similar those on my Pinterest.
And I use the workouts daily that I have pinned.

Although Pinterest is stated to be just a "Dream Board"
I think it is actually there to help you plan your future.
So to those of you who get made fun of for being on Pinterest too much.
Keep on going! 
You seem to be the one with bigger dreams.
My only suggestion, instead of having them be just a dream 

Make them your future.

My Dreams of the Week

 My goal this summer is find a good pair of boyfriend shorts. I like 
how they are fashionable but not butt cheek flashy.
I am going to make an honest effort to dress more modestly this summer. 
So wish me luck..

I had been wanting a cute fedora like this one for so long.
Well I got one!....Kinda
It was just my dads fishermans hat, but its dang cute and similar

Overalls. Yes. I want them.

Ever Since my Obsession with Gatsby my Junior year
I want a whole 20's inspired wardrobe. 

Well happy pinning everyone:)

Fishermans Gold

My mom was going through my dad's stuff the other day
and had a little box of his things.
I went through it naturally
And found a piece of gold.
My dad's fishing hat that he has maybe worn twice.
I LOVE it, maybe have worn it a little too much..
But you who cares, I dont? haha

Tune it up Thursday

So I'll admit that I am one of the people who looks
for new music constantly. 
I have built up quite the collection of music.
But there are always those few songs that I am 
addicted to for like a week.
So I thought I would share 5 of my addictions this week.
Most of them are the Gatsby sound track.
If you haven't downloaded it yet.
Shame on you, it is the most AMAZING
sound track out there.

1. Bang Bang -

2. Young and Beautiful - Lana Del Ray 
(probably the most beautiful song ever)

3. Where the wind blows - Coco O.

4. Two Weeks - Grizzly Bear
(been addicted for quite some time)

5.  Thank you - MKTO

#5 is by far my favorite lately. I listen to it every morning.
It is a song about how to government has kinda screwed us over
that they have put so much debt on our shoulders
taken so much from us and is leaving us with nothing.
Sure it seems extreme, but it is nice to here
a political song over all the love songs.
When i listen to it, it makes me want to wake up and make a difference.

Here's the music video!

And for all of you who are obsessed with Lost
That is walt <3

Horsin Around

Midway, Utah.
I am in love and will forever be in love.
We have family that owns a horse ranch up there so 
we try to go up as often as we can.
This weekend our visit included poop.
And lots of it. 
It took us 4 hours to clean not even all of it up.
haha even though it was a dirty job I loved every second of it.
I have an odd obsession with animals.
And so being able to spend 4 hours with the horses made it so worth it
I would do it everyday if I could 
Timmy was my buddy.
If you can't tell he LOVED taking pictures.

We filled that bin up a billion and 1 times.

Never Enough Aztec.

I've said it once, and I am saying it again.
 Aztec..Aztec.. and more Aztec.
A lot of what I will be wearing this summer.
The skirt was a total win from forever 21.
I paired it with a denim collared shirt and a sweater
on top to keep warm on the rainy day.
A big thanks to my babe of a lil sister,
who modeled for me.
She is 14 going on 21.

Shoes: Michael Kors similar here

Devils Drain

This summer my goal is to enjoy what Utah has to offer.
I want to rock climb the heck out of those mountains.
Hike every inch of them.
And suck in all its beauty as I bike up its trails.
There is something about being in the middle of a canyon 
surrounded by towering trees and rocky hills.
You aren't absorbed in yourself anymore, but what is around you.
You know there are those certain things you can stare at and 
realize an hour has passed. 
That is what the mountains do to me.
On days I am not dieing from allergies.
We went rock climbing up cottonwood canyon and it was
soooo pretty. Were we went right up at the top of the climb
there is a hole in the rock where the light shined through, like a little light 
from heaven. 
Even though Kevin decided to call it the Devils Drain? haha

Live free this Summer

Caribbean Cruisin

I was crazy enough to go on a cruise the week before finals.
But it turns out it was for the best!
I got high scores on my finals and ended up with good grades.
I should have skipped school for vacations more often.

Anyways we went to the Caribbean
Belize, Cayman Islands, and Cozumel
It was a dream.
That water was perfect, the kind of perfect where you don't have
to think about jumping in because it might be too cold.
 I could go on a long spiel about every detail about the trip but I thought
I would do just the top ten things about the trip.

1. My sister, aunt and I started a the wave in an auditorium of 2,000
total bucket list moment

2. I ate soft served ice cream until I about died

3. Me and my aunt jet skied out in the ocean, then got offered a free tube ride,
it pays to be tall blondes that look alike

4. We zip lined through the jungle in Belize, then tubed through
the most legit and beautiful caves I have ever seen 
(don't have pictures b/c the sis lost her camera...)

5. We got to play in bounce houses and trampolines on the ocean

6. I ate frog, shark, and snail

7. Me and my sisters set the record for most watched weird dancers on a cruise

8. Volleyball on the beach in the beautiful Cozumel

9. Using our towels to take flight because of incredible windy last day

10. Spending the week with my family who I love more than life.

Here are just a few pics from the trip.

I got the cutest key chain, and filled it with sand from the Cayman Islands
