we thank thee, oh god, for a prophet

We thank thee, O God, for a prophet, to guide us in these latter days. We thank thee for sending the gospel, to lighten our minds with its rays. We thank thee for every blessing, bestowed by thy bounteous hand. We feel it a pleasure to serve thee and love to obey thy command.

When dark clouds of trouble hang o’er usAnd threaten our peace to destroy, there is hope smiling brightly before us, and we know that deliv’rance is nigh. We doubt not the Lord nor his goodness. We’ve proved him in days that are past. The wicked who fight against Zion, will surely be smitten at last.

We’ll sing of his goodness and mercy. We’ll praise him by day and by night. Rejoice in his glorious gospel, and bask in its life-giving light. Thus on to eternal perfection, the honest and faithful will go. While they who reject this glad message, shall never such happiness know.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JILL!!!! I hope you have the B-E-S-T day ever! 24 is gonna be great - I can feel it! LOVE YOU and cant wait to see you in a couple weeks. ps. we hug awkwardly while being photographed. that is a tradition i wouldnt mind putting to rest.

pop n lockin

yes, that is ivan from so you think you can dance season 2. love him. he was darling. i told him i voted for him every week (lie) and that i thought he was cute (truth) then pressed my body against his in a full-frontal contact hug. it was awesome.

here are the "teachers" as we reunited for the Nuvo convention this past weekend. for those of you who are not up on this dance stuff, my old competing group, Troupe Civic, went to LA this weekend to take master classes from professional dancers (including ivan and travis wall from so you think you can dance season 2), then compete with dances that were choreographed by the everyone in this pic above (excluding me and tori). they did awesome - and i felt like a proud mama! no - sarah, i did not take class, but i had a real good time with my new friends travis and ivan. i heart dance and spider pants.

oh...and a happy new year!

girls trip to san diego was real niccccceeeee this year! we dance partied of course. why is that wherever we go we TRY to attract the most attention? i mean....the platform on the second floor overlooking the crowd seemed like an obvious dance spot. i dont know why others didnt find it first. and dancing out of the sunroof with the music bumping in the parking lot after party was a given.

ok, so down to business...i am keeping things real simple this year with my resolutions:
1. gain weight.
2. be nicer ABOUT people.

how hard could it be? i will let you know in 2009.

sex and the old roommates....

me and miriam discovered this past weekend, that our old roomies of nauvoo 208 summer of 2003 could totally be close in personality to the characters of Sex and the City! you case they need an understudy while filming the movie...

Carrie (SJP) - Maeve. she is ALWAYS thinking about something in depth. writing it down, discussing and analyzing and we feel as though she blogs as SJP would. she always has great outfits and LOVES fashion. maeve is also finally ending up with "big"...aka Chris b.

Charlotte - Miriam. the total optimist. charlotte is always the hopeless romantic, knowing that her knight in shining armor will rescue her. i could also see her riding in a convertible with the top down while wearing a scarf on her head with big sunglasses (one of mir's dreams in the future).

Miranda - Hails. she doesnt put up with the bull. she says it how it is and has a realistic view on life. she also has a baby :) she can argue her point to no end and she is ALWAYS right.

Samantha - Erin. does this one really need an explanation? look at samantha checking the guy out in the pic. also, maybe samantha tends to cross the line at times with her comments. not that i do that or anything....

dont worry...

i got exactly what i wanted for christmas this year (with the exception of the puppy). just thought i would make it official and proclaim to the blogging world that this is my ALL time favorite movie. nothing beats it. nothing. oh, and i decided that the best job in the world is to be disney pop star. i mean....their career always blossoms (love you brit).

foreva? foreva eva? foreva eva?
