The Parentals.

Day 4 kids! And so far I'm 4 for 4! (I also just made you say 4 three times!) Anywhoo, It's the day I get to talk about my parental units. Their names are Gary and Janie Jensen. And they are wonderful. They have been married 8 years and it's so crazy to me that it's been that long. But I when I think about it, I was 12 years old when they got hitched! I've grown up a lot since then....and they've been there the whole time. I know I can go to them about anything and they will be there to listen. We're not perfect by any means. We're a family. There is arguing and disagreements, but at the end of the day we're there for each other. And that is pretty special :)

Day 3

So Day 3 is called "Your first Love" And that can be really scary to talk about with the world....or your Facebook Friends. ;) But Here we go.

My First love. Definitely would be Diet Coke. Or pie. Or Mickey Mouse. Scratch that! It's Prince Charming from Cinderella. He was perfect! He even returned her shoe at the end. If that's not true love, I don't know what is. ;)

Okay in all seriousness, I'm not sure what constitutes as a person's first love. Because I could talk about the person I had a crush for what seemed like forever before he noticed me. Or the guy I thought loved me back, but not really...

I know what I'll do. I'll talk about the man that is mine right this very minute :) He's my best friend that I can tell everything to. And he has the most wonderful blue eyes I've ever seen. And when he said he loved me for the first time, it was the most amazing feeling in the world. :) Yeah. That's my first love.

Okay folks it's day 2! So far my blog challenge is going so well :) Okay well today is the meaning behind my blog name, which is
It's actually a nickname I had in junior high. Everyone (well almost everyone) since I can remember has called me Lish. My mom and basically my second mother, Kate, have called me Lish-ba-gish since I was a baby. So, Lish, just kind of stuck. In Junior high my friend Mauri, Kailee, and Candace, I believe, (It was so long ago!!) were talking about nicknames and how sometimes the actual nickname was longer than the person's name. So they thought it was super funny to add to the nickname that I already had. So it turned out to be LishKishBish.

There ya go hahaha. Sorry it's not more interesting ;)

With her permission.

So With the permission of my beautiful and talented cousin, I am able to let you in on a little secret. She writes beautiful poetry. And I came upon this poem of hers the other day.

Right Here, Right Now

Here I am.
Here I stand.
Right here, right now.

I do not know where I’ll be
In two weeks or even in two years.
But I am here.
Right here, right now.

I cant live in the future,
I cant live in the past,
I live in this moment.
Come awhile and stay with me.
--Charlotta Leung-Wo

Something about this just stayed with me. I want that. And I'm living that right now. My life is one big question mark. But sometimes right now, I just need that time.
That time to breathe and say "I'm okay." So thank you Charlotta. It was just what I needed.

No idea.

I often tell myself I will go to bed at a decent hour. I do all of the necessary "get ready for bed" things. I put jams on. I brush the teeths. I get underneath my warm covers. And I lay here. (where I am right now in fact) and pull out the lappy. I understand that maybe it isn't the best "go to sleep" motivator, but it helps me unwind. So then I do. I start to unwind. I think about the things that I have to do the upcoming week. Then I get stressed because I know that there aren't enough hours in a day to accomplish all that I need to.

And then it comes.

Thoughts about what am I doing with my life. And honest to goodness I have no idea. I wish I did. I wish I had a step by step plan of what I'm doing with the rest of my life. But so far I have none. I think about where I want to be in 5 years. Or 10. All I can think is that I want to be happy. Maybe with a someone. Maybe not. I want to travel. I want to eat food that I never thought could be so delicious. I want to see things in person that I've only seen in movies. I want to breathe the air that I've only day dreamed of.

*I am aware how cheesy this sounds*

But it's true. I want to live my life in such a way that when I am telling my babies about all the adventures I had they say "I want to do that too."
I know it will happen.
I just have no idea when.

xoxo, Lisha

A year ago.

I was talking with my Best Friend Arryn on our excursion to St. George and we were discussing where we were a year ago. This year has gone by so FAST! But I tried to remember so here we go

A Year ago I:

was 19.
Had just finished beauty school and never wanted to do hair again!
Was getting ready For DisneyLand with my family :)
Was really bummed I couldn't start school Fall Semester

And then that semester did start. And it was so much different than this one. Good and bad reasons really. I know everything happens for a reason. And I happy that my friends are happy. Even though we're in different places and that sucks some days really bad. But then I remember that I'm blessed in so many ways. I also remember that I have friends everywhere I go.

And I'm thankful.

I have never been so excited to hear about a mistake before in my life. I'll condense this story as much as I can, so here we go.
I'm a college girl. I have tuition and housing to pay. My only option really is financial aid. So like any good college girl, I started my FAFSA at the end of July to ensure plenty of time for it to process. I wasn't really worried because last semester it went off without a hitch. Why should this time be any different? Well, maybe because 80% of students here at USU-Eastern got audited. So in the middle of September I had to fill out MORE paperwork. So come the first week of October I had full confidence that I would go up to the Financial Aid office and they would tell me that the pell grant had already been applied to my account. It would take 10 minutes.

I was so wrong.

They told me I didn't qualify for any pell grants. They also told me that I was offered a loan of $5,500 but I would need to make payments on it while in school. Oh, and I still had to come up with $900 per semester.

All I could do was cry. And pray. And cry some more. And call my mom and cry. It was getting to be ridiculous. I had to look at all of my options but nothing felt right. I went back and talked to the Financial Aid people, and they couldn't really do anything for me. I was so screwed!

And then my mom came to my rescue. She realized I had come to the end of my rope and called the Dean of Students. I'm not sure how he and Financial Aid communicated, but I got a call on Friday that was the sweetest call I had ever received. Financial Aid made a $10,000 mistake on my paperwork and no one had caught it. So now I qualify for some pell grants and a loan that I don't have to make payments on while I'm in school.

I know this story probably means nothing to the average reader, but it strengthened my testimony of prayer in so many ways. I think I get so caught up in myself sometimes that I forget that God is there to hear me. He wants to bless me. All I have to do is ask.

Does it get better than this?

Perfect. That's all I can think.
That no matter what words
I write, they would be too plain.
Too unspecial.
Because you deserve the best.
And I'm not sure you have it,
but I will try my hardest.
For you.
Because that's what you deserve.
The best.
And I hope and pray that's enough.
Because I can't imagining it getting better than this.

xoxo, Lisha
Oh and I love having one of these.... :)

I miss you

I miss you so much it hurts sometimes.
Especially this month because here's where,
you left.
And I can't explain it, because I barely new you.
But I've seen pictures.
Pictures of you.
Pictures of me.
Pictures of you holding me.
I've heard wonderful stories. Amazing stories
of you being a wonderful mother. A wonderful grandmother.
And I can't help but miss you.
I miss you.
I love you.
And I know you're watching over me everyday. And still....
I can't help but
miss you.

Saturday, October 8, 2011

I know

I know I wasn't the hardest hit.
And I know my side isn't even
But I still felt it. That abrupt ending.
The sadness of the contact.
But I know I wasn't the only one.
And I won't ever be.
And that's nice that I don't have to be alone.
And it's nice that I can see the scratches and stains
and hurt parts. It's nice that they can see mine too.
I know that for certain.
I definitely know.

As of late

As of late my life has been pretty hectic! Who knew the life of a stage manager was so crazy!!!! I've realized some things about myself in this whole process.

1. I never gave my previous stage managers enough credit.
2. I can't wait to get back ON stage.
3. I love the theater even more than I knew....

This show has tried my patience and my sanity, but I have come to love it. I'm ready for something new though. Something that challenges me in a new way.

In other news, I have the best friends in the world!!! I totes
got surprised on Saturday by My Michael and The Sterling!!! Best surprise ever :) They mean the world to me and I'm so stoked they got to see the show! AND ME!
Or maybe the best surprise was the Double Double burger from In-N-Out waiting on my doorstep as I got home.... ;)

Food For thought....

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

Maybe it'll be okay

Yesterday the cast list for Romeo and Juliet went up. Yesterday I walked to the theater and legit thought it was the longest walk of my life. Yesterday I found my name on that list, but not the part I wanted.
For a split second I thought that I had a chance to do something that was unexpected. (Which I don't think should be unexpected...) Yesterday I was super bitter, because in my mind, we had the chance to do something incredible. Something different. Yesterday I was feeling so mediocre. Incredible average.

And then I realized...
It's going to be okay. I got the part of the nurse. AND IT'S FANTASTIC! Today I'm stoked! Today I'm excited to start rehearsals. I'm excited for this cast, because I think everyone is gonna be so wonderful together. Today it'll be okay. It's going to be a great production, and I'm so grateful for this opportunity. Thank you to all of you who congratulated me. I have the best friends and family a girl could ask for :)

Let's rock it!

Being alone is hard.
Being somewhere new is harder.
Making new friends is fun...ish.
Having friends already here is heaven.
Missing my peeps back home is harder than last time.
But I'm strong.
Stronger than I thought.

And that is comfort.
Enough to keep me sane.

It's like everything changed.
And stayed the same.
It's like I'm here by myself.
Surrounded by family.
It's like my routine has suddenly changed.
But in a good way, too.
I feel ready, and nervous.
I feel old.
I feel new.
I feel like crying because you're gone.
But smiling my heart out because I have
new things to get attached to.
I know you'll never get old.
And nothing is ever new.

Friday, August 5, 2011


So I will be the first one to admit that more often than not, I forget how blessed I am. I get blue and think "Woe is me", when I have it pretty good. I have a job. I have amazing friends and family. I have food to eat. A warm bed to sleep in. I have enough technology to keep me entertained for hours on end. I have NOTHING to complain about. And yet, I do.
It will take time to change this mode of thinking, I know this. But I think we all need to remember reasons for being. For smiling. For being thankful. We all have reasons to feel lucky. To feel loved. To feel appreciative of everything we have.

We are lucky.

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

These people

I love when smiles are genuine. I love when people love you for you. I love when you find someone that you know you were meant to meet. I love when you can think of one word that might be associated with an inside joke you have with someone and you just burst out laughing no matter what you are doing.

I love that all of the sentences above apply to these people. They are some of the greatest friends I've ever had...and probably will have. And I know we're all going our separate ways, but somehow I know it will be okay. I hate that I'm getting teary just typing this...But I just wanted to let these people know how much they mean to me.

To My Michael: Thank you for teaching me how to be talented. That it's okay to just sit and think and be alone with my thoughts sometimes. Thank you for loving me and making me laugh. Thank you for being one of my very first friends in Price, America.

To Farrah: Thank you for teaching me that kindness is possible. You have one of the biggest hearts of anyone I know. Your compassion for others is truly an example to me. Thank you for that very first night in the penguin room. My life was forever changed :)

To Grandpa Kelty: Thank your teaching me that sleep is important. Bahaha! Just kidding ;) Thank you for teaching me to be patient, and that wonderful things take time. Thank you for letting me see you just as you are. And thank you for thinking that I'm beautiful. All the time.

To Sterling: Thank you for teaching me that there is more than one way to do things. Thank you for teaching me that it's so important to have a passion for whatever I choose to do. You blow my mind!!! (Get a load of you! :))

I know I am only me because of the wonderful examples I have in my life. I have the best friends/family anyone could ask for. I'm truly blessed.

Still Breathing

Life can be so stressful. And I know that is news to no one. But sometimes I feel like I get caught up in what other people want, and not what I want. Or I get lost in the task at hand that I feel like sometimes life is passing me by and I'm trying so hard to catch it. I'm not sure if that makes sense to anyone else but I got it.

As a new stylist in beauty school, they warn you that the first year you won't make any money. They tell you it will take at least 5 years to build a clientele. Basically only the strong survive in this industry. You have to be willing to put in the time and effort it takes to get what you want. So lately, I've been feeling really discouraged because I feel like I'm just sitting there. Waiting for my business to come to me. But over the past 2 weeks I have been busy!!! I hadn't noticed really and was talking to my boss about how lame I felt. She pulled up my spreadsheet showing how much I made and blah blah blah. She told me I was doing really well for just starting a month ago. I am steadily increasing and that's all that matters. Then she told me something that made me so happy. "And the girls really like you". What? Really? I don't know why but that stunned me. People that have been in this industry almost half my life look at me and like me. I felt so good!!
So maybe I really am where I am supposed to be.

In other news, my best friend Arryn has moved. And I'm a saddy. Granted, it's just to West Jordan but still. No more random sleepovers, no more late late late taco bell runs, no more "hey wanna come over" on a moments notice. I've never had a friend like Arryn. She really is my other half and the jelly to my peanut butter. I guess I'll just take this time to say Arryn I love you. And I know that you'll be the best adult ever! But come back for sunday dinners every once in awhile okay?

Wednesday, June 29, 2011


So lately I've been writing poems, monologues, and other silly things. But there has not really been an update in the Life of Lisha :) Where to start?!

Maybe my new job?
I'm the newest Stylist at Me Salon and Fashion! It's so fun and the girls I work with are so talented. I'm having a great time!

Oooh! Or maybe my new haircut! I needed a change, and this was just the remedy :) Just short and sassy enough for summer!

But I'm pretty sure that I saved the best for last :) Probably my favorite New thing. He's smart, hilarious, and a hottie! That ladies and gents is what they call the whole package! I couldn't be more happy!

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Monologue (One of many I'm sure)

Do you ever have one of those days where you feel...Invincible? Like you could fly if you wanted? Or move a mountain with you bare hands? I kind of feel like that whenever I'm with you. You make me strong. And determined. And brave. I really can't explain it. And I kind of don't want to, for fear that it won't be as special anymore. Is that weird? It probably is. But that's another thing about you. YOU DON'T EVEN CARE! In fact you embrace my insecurities. You tell me "You wouldn't be you, if you didn't have imperfections." And all of this is so eternally backwards to me because all I want to be is perfect for you. People tell me all of the time that perfection isn't real. People on tv screaming at me that it won't ever happen. Or pictures in magazines illustrating to me that I'm never enough. And yet here you are telling me that my imperfections are just that. PERFECT.

When did I get so obsessed with being perfect? Perfect....pERFect. perf---ect.

Probably the day I dropped my sunglassses. And looked up and saw the most perfect boy I have ever seen.

Perfect you.

Thursday, June 16, 2011

Perfect (Tanka)

It's a weird feeling.
To know that you are perfect.
To look and see you.
To realize you're all mine.
And to not know why it is.

First Impressions

So I've heard alot in my life You only get one first impression. People may not like what they see. You have a really pretty face but... and you know what? I do only get one first impression. But who am I to say that they won't like what they see? The whole purpose of this blog is to make people see how beautiful they are. How wanted they are. How AMAZING they are no matter what.

So I have heard so many good things about the show THE VOICE. It's a show where these people audition to be the next big thing in music. The only catch is...the judges/coaches have their backs turned while the auditioners sing. They can only turn when they have decided what they're hearing is what they want on their team.


Seriously?! How cool is that? These people are judged on their talent and ONLY their talent! The funny thing is, at the end they all turn around and some of the coaches regret not pressing the button once they see the person.

How much do we as people depend on the outward appearance?

Why is one better than the other? Why can't we appreciate what we have?

I learned a while ago that when we compare ourselves to another person, we're often comparing our worst quality with their best one. So of course we'll never measure up. I guess with all of these abstract thoughts I'm trying to say, give people a chance. Give yourself a chance. Because you deserve to be loved. To be wanted. To feel sexy. To have a someone think you're beautiful. Because when that's one of the best feelings in the world ;)

xoxo, Lisha

I love Farrah

Facebook isn't the only thing that I can forget to log out of and can possibly get sabatoged by my friends. Pretty much my friend Farrah is a little crazy and just couldn't pass up the opportunity to remind me how awesome she is! And how much she loves me. :)

Saturday, June 11, 2011

Can't stop smiling

I don't know what it is.
Maybe it's the way you say my name,
or how you look at me when you say it.
Maybe it's the butterflies I get when
you hold my hand.
Either way, I can't wipe this smile off my face.
It's contagious and beautiful
and it won't go away.
And you know?
I don't really want it to.

--Lisha Michel

Wednesday, June 1, 2011


And just because I look like I'm sleeping doesn't mean that I really am. I like to feel your heart on my heart. Your hands in my hands. The way your eyes flutter because you're not really asleep either. We're both aware of each other. Aware that another day has gone by, and while we're kind of sad that a day ended, I'm kind of excited because I get to start another adventure with you tomorrow. An adventure that I know nothing about yet. I'll learn something new about you because I want to pay attention to every move you make and take mental photographs so I don't forget anything. Not one freckle on your shoulder, or one laugh that you laugh. I hope I never forget. Never ever.

Day 28

My biggest pet peeve. That's easy. Lying. I think lying is the one thing that can break a relationship with me. And it has. So I don't take it lightly. I'd much rather be hurt with the truth for a minute, then be lied to for a long time. And I don't mind saying that. I try to be an honest person all of the time, and I expect the same in return.
Another thing that bugs....STUPID PEOPLE. People who have no idea what's going on. OR the people who just talk to hear themselves talk. Those people irritate me.

Also, people who bring up the Royal wedding, just to talk about the Royal Wedding. Honestly ;)

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Day 27

This is seriously my least favorite question! I have tons of favorite movies. SO it's super hard for me to pick just one. But these are some right now that come to mind!

Monday, May 16, 2011

Day 26

So the picture on the top is probably my most recent picture, and the one on the bottom was last year at DisneyLand. Alot in my life has changed for sure. But I don't know if my appearance has....I guess you can be the judge. :)

xoxox, Lisha

Day 25

My most recent entertainment? That would hands down go ot a loverly invention called netflix! It's brilliant. Endless movies that I can watch from my bed. That's one of my favorite things. Dinner and a movie in bed :)

Friday, May 13, 2011

a perhaps monologue one day

And you know I feel the same way. I feel oddly connected to you. And I don't mean like that my wrist is connected to your kneecap, I mean that I feel like I've known you for a long time. And you feel like home. And happiness. And good things. And I'm wondering why you weren't in my life sooner. Or even why you're here now. Why I deserve you. And then I remember it's because God loves me. He loves us. Everyone. And he brought us together to recognize the good and to fix the bad. I feel like our sames are the thing that unites us. And are differents are really just sames in disguise. Because I believe that under all the stuff that makes, we're alot more similar than we realize. We're never alone. But I know that I feel so alone sometimes. And then I see a text from you, or a someone else and I realize. I am never alone. Or at night when it's just perfect un-jacket weather and I'm standing outside alone, I look up. And God is there again. And so are those stars that we named each other after. Then suddenly

I'm home again.

Thursday, May 12, 2011

Day 24

Day 24 I'm almost done!!! Today is a photo of something that means alot to you. And while I was racking (Wracking?) my brain to all of the millions of things that are important to me, I realized one thing that I couldn't live without. And that is my friends. My best friends. Those people that talk to me just to talk to me. Who love me because I am Lisha. I'm irreplaceable. Being a yellow personality (Read the color code!) I tend to make "Best" friends easily. I like to be close to people. And I do that. I'm also one of those people that if we don't talk for awhile, but come in contact again, We tend to pick up right where we left off. And that works for me.

I honestly have some of the best friends a girl could ask for. I thank my Heavenly Father for each of you every day. And I hope I know who you are (because there are alot of you) :). I hope you know that because of who you are, I am who I am today. And I love you for it.

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

Day 23

My dream house. I think my perfect house would be anywhere that my perfect someone and I live. And I say that in all honesty, as cliche as it probably sounds. My perfect house is a home. A place where I feel safe, and my children will fill safe as well. A place they can come to escape the world. I think a house on the beach could be fun, or huge loft.

But my secret wish is that I have a house like this...

Monday, May 9, 2011

Day 22

This is so hard!!! Today is my favorite trip I've been on. I love to travel and seriously have been doing it since I was like 5 (Or earlier). I love everything about it. Exploring new places, eating new food, and spending time with family and loved ones.

I love going Canada. It's seriously one of the places that I feel the most home at. I love the smells, the food, and the people I consider family there. Just talking about it is making me a little homesick. So that's probably my favorite...

Oh and going to DisneyLand is always a treat too ;)

Thursday, May 5, 2011

Day 21

So day 21 is something that makes you happy. And if anything in this world made this girl happy it would be a day at the beach. There's nothing better than a day in the sun :)

Monday, May 2, 2011

Day 20

The meaning behind my blog name isn't some profound inside joke or even a big deal really. I'm a big girl. And I'm beautiful. I know I am. So I thought my blog should reflect the way I see myself. The way everyone should be seen.

Beautiful. Gorgeous. Intelligent. Special. Unique.

So I hope that clears up my blog name. Not that it was that hard to figure out huh? ;)

Sunday, May 1, 2011

Day 19

Another picture of myself. Really? Do you want an explanation or anything? No....Okay here you go.

Friday, April 29, 2011

Day 18

If you are my friend, have hung around me for a day, or looked in my general direction you have probably heard my say "I want a Jamba" It's so true though. I Could have one everyday and not get sick of it. This is the picture of the Jamba Juice in Downtown Disney. There is nothing on this planet that can compare to walking in DisneyLand with a Jamba Juice in hand. It is what perfection feels like :)

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Day 17

Day 17. I should be so much farther along in this! I'm a slacker :) So it's the day that I get to talk about my amazing family. We've been through alot. And we're definately stronger for it.

My family is definately unique. We are a blended family. (That always makes me think of a smoothie, and I don't know why haha) But I am 20 years old and I have a 5 year old sister and a 2 year old brother. It's the funnest and strangest thing ever. I always wanted siblings....and then I finally got some!

This is me and the mother. She is my rock and my biggest fan. I love her so much for the woman that she showed me how to be. For the mother that I want to be someday. We have definately had our fair share of challenges, but if she's taught me one thing, it's to trust that Heavenly Father will be there for us in our time of need. She's such a woman of faith and I'm so glad we have each other.

These are my amazing parents. They got married when I was 12. It's so weird to think that Gary has not been in my life for longer. He's the best dad anyone could ask for. And I'm so glad that I get to be his daughter. He has been a shoulder to cry on, and a friend to laugh my guts out with. I couldn't ask for a better example in my life.

My family may not be perfect, but I know they are there for me forever. And I love knowing that.

Day 16

My celebrity crush! Oh boy....

So I tend to think that this person is super attactive in whatever he is in. Or whatever he wears. Actually, he could probably get away with wearing a garbage bag and look lovely. And that's okay. He is married. (Shoot.) Not that I really had a chance's just nice to dream, yeah? And he is REALLY nice to look at ;)

100 Days

In a hundred days I've
learned your name.
What you want,
Who you want,
What your hands feel like.
What your breath on me feels like.
I've learned what I want.
Who I am.
I have learned what the word friend means.
I've learned a new video game trick.
Or five.
I've learned that love isn't just a word people say when they don't know what else to say.
It's real.
And I've learned that from you.
I want a hundred more days.

Day 15

Hey I'm halfway finished with my blog challenge! I know I've been slackin, but it seems like everything is coming at me fullspeed and I can't breathe.... So today is my favorite childhood show. I was never much of a cartoon watcher as a child. When my mom needed something to entertain me while she showered she put me in front of Regis and Kathy Lee or Oprah. I remember hearing the "Who's the Boss?" theme music and running from anyhere I was to sit in front of the T.V. But my all time favorite show as a kid was "Boy Meets World". I rememeber watching reruns all week and then on Fridays the new ones were on. I honestly don't know why I was so captivated by this one show...but I was. And still am :) xoxox, Lisha

Day 13

Hobbies. Things I like to do. I have the normal answers. Watch Movies. Hang with Friends. Go out to dinner. But what I really LOVE LOVE LOVE to do is make people beautiful. Scratch that. Make people FEEL beautiful. I love makeup and hair and glitter and lip gloss. But to me beauty doesn't equal perfection. It's all of the little imperfections that I find intriguing and I always have. I remember thinking as a little kid that freckles were so cool. And that I would give anything to have green eyes because my brown ones were not cutting it! Then I realized I had to own these traits about myself. Make them mine. Because I want to be proud to be me. Love the person I see in the mirror. And I do. And you should too. You deserve that. You owe that to yourself. I think everyone does. And I'm not saying that I don't have bad "I'm fat let me eat a cupcake....or 3" days because Heaven knows that I do. But I don't let that stop me from being fearless. Fearless to walk out the door and love my body. Love my hair. Love my hips. And my ankles. ( OH MY ANKLES!) xoxox, Lisha

Day 12

Day 12- A picture of the town you live in

So when I'm not living in Price, America for school, my family and I live in Clearfield, Utah. I love it here. It's not to big, and not to small and there is a 24 hr walmart about 3 minutes from me :) This is a photo of the Municipal building on Main Street.

Day 11

Day 11 is a picture from High School. For the most part high school was just ok. I regret wasting time for sure. Wasting time not being sure of myself. Wasting time getting to know people. Wasting time thinking that those were the real them. Wasting time not realizing there was more to the world around me. I still am not 100% sure of myself but I know I love me. Getting to know people is still not my favorite thing, but I'm getting better. Fake people still bother me. I still know there is more to explore around me. I can't wait for the adventures that await me. I just hope they don't leave without me.

Day 10

I am the worst at this whole "blog everyday" thing. But I'm trying. Life just gets in the way. So today is day 10 Your favorite place to eat. I LOVE MIMI'S CAFE! It's delicious. I mostly get to eat there for special occasions. Mostly for my birthday. But that just gets me sad because I won't be able to this year :/ But if I were home, that's where I would tell my mom I would want to go. I also had my high school graduation there. I love going out to dinner....mostly because when I go with my mom we almost always get dessert. Because why else would you go out to dinner? ;)

Day 9

So I've fallen off the blogging wagon! I have been so busy lately, that a minute to myself is rare. So with these FEW minutes to myself I will continue my blog challenge :) Day 9- Something you are proud of. This is a hard one for me because I can think of a few things in particular. My proudest one would probably be graduating Beauty School! It took me almost exactly a year. I pushed myself so hard (Maybe too hard at times) and accomplished something major. I took my state tests and passed with flying colors. It was exciting and scary all at once. Definately something I'll never forget. :)

Day 8 Long Layers

Day 8 A song that describes your mood

So I've been dreading this post and I don't even know why! Everytime I try to do it, I can't think of anything! So the song I chose today was

Pocket full of Sunshine--Natasha Bedingfield

I loved this song to begin with, but it's one of my favorites because of Easy A! Hahaha such a funny show.

Day 7 An Updo...Of the wedding variety

So you would think that this post is every girls dream. A picture of you dream wedding. But honestly, when I think of my dream wedding I get a little overwhelmed. I think about all the things that I like, and all the things I love. And all of things I want incorporated into my special day. So my poor future hubsand (Yes I meant to do that) who is out there somewhere, will just have to have patience. Lots and lots of patience.

So I love the colors on the cake...but I Want cupcakes! So a mix between the two would be perfect...

I have a secret love of Pearls. :)

I want to wear Sparkly Converse under a huge dress!
But when it comes down to it, I guess it doesn't really matter what's at my long as it's here :)

Every Princess deserves to get married in her Castle

Day 6- A photo of an animal you'd love to keep as a pet

I doubt that this would ever happen, but I will forever think that it could happen maybe one day. ;)

Oh and the haircut for today is the Crew Cut. Because I think a man is pretty darn sexy with a Crew Cut ;)

Day 5 The A line

So today is Day 5- A picture of yourself two years ago. I don't really know how I feel about this! It's so weird to think that 2 years ago, my life was different. Like drastically. I didn't know about anyone's sexuality. Or that finding out about other people's sexuality could change my life so much. I didn't think that life could get any better. I didn't know who I would meet that would change my life. I didn't realize that high school wasn't everything. I didn't know that I was beautiful.

Now I still don't have all the answers and I still don't know how my life is going to turn out. But I finally figured out that I was beautiful. And that's okay.

xoxoxo, Lisha

P.S. I chose the A line because that's what haircut I have in this picture :)

Day 4 The Pixie

So today I chose the Pixie because it's on of my favorite haircuts ever! And I'm talking about my favorite it just works :)

Okay So today is the day of Best Friends! I have so many! Here we go!

So this is my Farrah. She's so wonderful. I can tell her everything :) And was one of my first friends here in Price. I love her to pieces. And not just because she has a penguin guest room either....

This is my Scottothon! Scotty would write a paper for anyone! We write them all of the time. He's one of the most interesting people I know, with a really big heart. And I can make him laugh. :) Which makes for some fun nights here in Price, America!

This is my Arryn. She's like my other half and I love her more than life!!!! We're such good friends that she even finishes my....(Right now she's saying sentences)

This is My Michael. He's pretty much the and I love him with all of heart.

This is my Taylor and Austin. They are amazing. I love them so much! And they love me...which makes it a pretty sweet deal :)

So this is My Sterling. He's pretty much talented beyond belief. I love him so much. Especially when we just burst out laughing for no reason :)

Last but not least, this is My Kelty. To say he's amazing would be an understatement. Grandpa is the kind of guy that would do anything for anyone. I'm so glad we're friends!
