I wish I wish with all my heart...

Today is 3 wishes. Random. Well I try to live my life in such a way that I am happy all the time. Because it gets kind of old when people are constantly saying things like "I'll be happy when..." I think life is all about the moments. The good ones. The sad ones. The ones that you think won't top the next one.

So I guess if I had to choose....

1. I wish that everyone would get along with each other. That people were more genuine. And they had personalities.

2. I wish people really knew how beautiful they were. I wish girls didn't think they had to act stupid around boys. I wish people were supportive when other people did well.

3. I wish I had the money to travel anywhere at any given time. I could go anywhere I wanted at a moments notice. That would be beautiful. :)

Beautiful and Under traveled, xoxoxox

The City I live in....

Currently I live in Price, UT. It's a little town. A very little town. And I joke and stuff that it's so lame...but I love it. I laugh at some of the locals that make me laugh with the silly things they do, I complain that nothing but McDonald's is open 24 hours, and I kind of hate that I, for whatever reason, am constantly am walking everywhere...sorta ;)

But it's my blog so I better be honest. I love it. I love that everyone knows each other. I love those late night McDonald's trips that you think will last 10 minutes tops, but you drive back to your dorm and end up spending 2 hours talking in the car to one of your favorite people on the planet.

And I love that I don't have to spend so much gas driving places....

Yeah sorry that was all I could think of for that one.

So here's some pictures of the town I live in. :)

A dream is a wish your heart makes

I have a lot of ideas for my wedding. Some of which involve polka dots, some of which involve cake. Anywho, this will be short and sweet.

I most definitely want this...

You make my heart sing.

Well it's that time. Time for musicccc! One of my favorite topics! Well it says to put my iPod on shuffle, and I'm definitely already in bed and too lazy to get my iPod out of my purse so I will use Spotify to help me! Here it goes!

"I'll meet you halfway"-The Partridge Family. I grew up on this stuff. My mom had the CD of their greatest hits and I fell in love with it.

"Farewell"-Rihanna. Her new album is genius!

"The heart of the matter"-India.Arie. I fell in love with her when I saw her on Oprah. I wanted everything she'd ever sung! This song is no different. LOVE it.

"Run Everytime"-Gavin DeGraw His new album is also brilliant.

"I know it's today"-Shrek The Musical I saw a youtube video of this and couldn't stop watching. I love the harmonies.

"Such Great Heights" -The Postal Service Honestly? I just downloaded the whole Grey's Anatomy album and this was on it. I was so infatuated with this song!

"Just a kiss"-Lady Antebellum I'm obsessed with this because of Grace.

"Nine People's Favorite Thing"-[Title of Show] I wanted to learn every word of this last semester. And I did.

"Move On"-Natalie Weiss LOVE anything she touches/sings/breathes.

"Pumped Up Kicks"-Foster The People It makes me think of my Scott. And I like that.

And there you have it folks! My music :)

Learn something new everyday!

I try at least. To learn something new everyday, that is. Like today. I learned that when your sleep schedule is off, you wake up just as your math class is starting. And when you don't look to see if you have a pen or pencil before you leave, you won't have one. And that sucks. Yesterday I learned what it was to wake up at 2 pm. I'm not proud of that. But it happened. So everyday I learn something new. It's human. It's okay to not know everything now....or ever. I think that's why God brings people in our lives. To teach us new things. To help us know the world better. To relate to each other. Because honestly, I think we're more alike than we think we all are.

So things I've learned:

You can't go into ANY relationship thinking you will change someone. (Best advice my mom every gave me.)

When in doubt, say "Hello" anyway. You never know how much that might mean to someone.

It's okay to feel beautiful. You are.

Laughing is truly the best medicine. If you can't laugh at yourself, you've missed the point.

Compliments are the best present.

Lipgloss does in fact make you feel better about your current situation.

A phone call to your parental units is sometimes all you need.

It's not the end of the world....you'll know when it is.

All you need is Love.

Uh, What?

So today, it says favorite movie. But I'm pretty sure I already did that....So today I will do my favorite quote. I do have a lot of faves, so I'll try to do all of them.

"Nobody is perfect until you fall in love with them."

"It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are."-E.E. Cummings

"I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I ended up where I needed to be."

"The two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why."-Mark Twain

"Life is too short to spend with people who suck the happiness out of you."

"Life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans."

"And in that moment I swear, we were infinite."-Perks

"I'm just a girl. Standing in front of a boy. Asking him to love her."

"Baby, I'm gonna treat you so nice you're never gonna let me go."-Pretty Woman

"I never treated you like a prostitute."
"You just did"-Pretty Woman

A few of them at least :)

XOXOX, Lisha

Not to be cocky or full of myself, but I have always been pretty photogenic. I love having my picture taken. I love taking funny, pretty, or ridiculous/nonsense pictures. I love editing as well. I love it all I guess :) So I couldn't pick just one favorite picture of myself.....
And they're all big. I wanted it that way.

This was taken at Weber State with my best friends Austin and Taylor. I was backstage and we were hiding from Austin....it might take you awhile to realize where I am. ;)

Me and my Bestie Arryn. This was taken while waiting for a train to go to Salt Lake one summer night. I honestly don't know why I love it so much. But it's one of my favorites of my and her :)

This is one of my FAVORITE pictures of myself. It was taken on a Sunday in the summer of 2010. Arryn and I were on our way to church and we were just looking too gorgeous that day :) (Also, this probably doesn't even matter, but I had just tried a new mascara that day and I loved it. Look how long my lashes are!!)

I miss everything.

Something I miss.....
Well, when I'm at school I miss all my friends at home. When I'm at home I miss all my friends at school. I just want everyone in one place so I can have you all to myself. That would work out just fine.
I miss when I was kid and spent summers in Canada. I miss thinking that the summer was 6 months long. I miss being able to play hands up stands up. (I was so good at those cherry bombs!) I miss spending the whole day outside because I was a kid, and that's what kids were supposed to do. I miss all my firsts. My first date, My first kiss, My first time to hold hands with someone for real. I think I just miss those butterflies that come with that. That "I'm so excited I might jump out of my skin" feeling.

It's too good.

Food. I love Food.

Okay kids. Let's talk about food. I love it. I love going out to dinner. I love getting dessert. I love it and these are some of my favorites.

Love me some burgers and fries :) And it reminds me of California and the beach!

I grew up working in Del Taco's as a child. My mom's second husband was in the restaurant business and he opened 4 or 5 of them on the Wasatch Front. So for me, it's not about the food. It's a memory.

Mimi's Cafe. SO YUM! Any special occasion I always choose here to eat.

Jamba Juice. Enough said.

I'm looking forward to...

This one is kind of hard. I don't know if I'm supposed to be looking forward to something in the near future, or something far away. Well I guess I'm looking forward to the opening of the show we're currently working on, which is See How They Run. I think it's going to be a blast when it all comes together. (I love the people I get to see everyday at rehearsals.) But in the future future? I'm looking forward to adventures with the love of my life. I'm looking forward to little chubby Lisha's running around. I'm looking forward to buying my wedding dress. To have a career that I LOVE. I guess I just always here people say "I'll be happy when..." And the truth is, I feel so blessed to be happy right now. Because I am so happy right now. I have everything anyone could want. Sure, there are things I want, but I have everything I need....and then some. So I'll look forward to my future, but be so graciously happy right now.

My Dream home

I don't really have blue plans for my perfect house, but I think some things, like a huge bath tub would be really awesome. I love hardwood floors. And I really want a big kitchen. But I'm not sure why because I don't really cook....but it's nice to dream, right? Here are some pictures that I really like...

But please let this be in my kitchen! :)

A bible verse

Okay kids it's confession time. The bible really scares me. It's big and there are a lot of words, and I find it extremely intimidating. But there is a verse that sticks out to me....it was my theme for Laurel's conference one year.

Proverbs 31:10 " Who can find a virtuous woman? For her Price is far above rubies."

I love this verse because to me, the whole chapter describes the kind of woman I want to be. She is strong. She is kind. She is a mother. She is a wife. She is leans on her Heavenly Father for guidance.

That's who I want to be.

What a difference a year makes...

So a year ago, I had just started here at USU Eastern. And I was so nervous! I have changed in more ways than I knew was even possible. I kind of found myself. Or maybe a little part of myself. I have met amazing people. People who I never knew I could love so much! Just like this one! Her name is Bethany and she is the sweetest, prettiest, more compassionate person I know. She's become one of my very best friends. And I can remember the exact moment that happened. It was actually in the show that this picture is from :) Thank you Bethany for being lovely.

Get married in the Temple
Cook on a more regular basis

Dance in a McDonald's Drive Thru for about an hour (Oh wait... :) )

I would never leave without......

I can never leave the house without:

My phone
My Favorite Lipgloss (Usually something from Bath and Body Works)
My purse

And seriously if I don't have some lipgloss or chapstick of some kind, I like freak out and my lips re so dry! No bueno.

A used to be TV junkie

I used to be such a TV addict. And I really don't know what happened. I had the TV show schedule memorized, so I could record and watch a show at the same time. Right now my faves are, in no particular order:

Grey's Anatomy
How I Met Your Mother
Gilmore Girls
Boy Meets World

All I can say is thank goodness for NetFlix :)

Day 10

Oh Day 10. I would like to say that I'm fearless. But that would be a big horrible lie. I'm afraid of a lot of silly things.

Heights: The older I get, the more I am afraid of heights. It's so weird! I get crazy butterflies in my tummy and I wanna flee from the situation completely.

Being Vulnerable: Once again, I get crazy butterflies and want to run. It's way scarier to me than anything in this universe.

Dying with no purpose: I hope I do something worthwhile before I leave this earth. And I hope someone notices.

I wasn't trying to be poetic or super deep. These are the real things that scare me. That sometimes keep me up at night.

Day 9

A picture of my best friend? I have like a million! And I already did that for my things that make me happy....So instead, I will write what they have taught me.

Arryn Glines. She's the best! :) She's taught me how to make and keep goals. She gets what she wants not matter what and is such an example to me e'ry day. ;)

Charlotta Jane. She's my cousin, so I'm stuck with her....just kidding ;) Charlotta has taught me that it's okay to laugh at silly things. And that it's okay not to like vegetables. And it's okay to be beautiful. She's just pretty much perfect. (Do you know what?!)

Scott Zaborski. I couldn't even fit in a million blogs what he's taught me. But I'll try. Scott has taught me what being infinite means. That feeling when everything is perfect. And you don't think any other moment can top it, but it does. He's taught me what it means to really read a book. He's taught me how to play Mario Party....the list really could go on and on.

Michael Johnson. He's taught me that it's okay to be smart. It's okay to be vulnerable. It's okay to love. Anyone. I love him so much for that. (And miss him so much.)

Kelton Wells. Oh Kelty. I love him:) Kelton has taught me what it means to be dedicated to something. He gives 110% to everything he does and that is amazing to me.

Farrah Nelson. Farrah has taught me how to laugh and to not take myself too seriously. I can always count on her to laugh with me even when I'm stressed or whatever! She's wonderful :)

Sterling Anderson. Has taught me how to be passionate about what I want. To see him perform is such an awesome experience because you can tell it's what he was meant to do. It's so beautiful to know a person like him.

Grace Wilson. Grace has taught me how to be an individual. She marches to the beat of her own drummer and that is so rare to find. I found her at the exact right time in my life and haven't been the same since.

Tim Swensen. Tim has taught me how to be too cool for school. He's seriously one of the smartest people I know, and he acts like it's not big deal. He's such a hard worker and is willing to help me whenever I need it. :)

Austin Hull. Austin has taught me how to be humble. We started off kind of rocky, but he was humble enough to be my friend under some tough circumstances. And for that I will be forever grateful.

Taylor Knuth. Taylor is one of a kind and I'm so grateful for him in my life. He has taught me that it's okay to be talented. He's amazing! He's taught me it's okay to go for what you want. He's taught me how to be happy. I will forever love him for that.

Oh Canada

So today is the day that I get to tell the world about my travels. I've traveled a lot. But I hope to travel more and see the world some day. Hopefully sooner rather than later. I love new places. New food. New smells. Love it all. Anyway, I was born in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. I moved to the states with my mom when I was about 3 years old. But, when I was 5 I started going back in the summers to visit my other family. The family that took my mom and I in when we had no where else to go. I'm not sure they will ever know how eternally grateful we are that we know them, but we are. My life would definitely not be the same.
So during these summer trips, when I thought summer lasted forever (or at least 6 months), I thought the world was mine. I remember thinking that this where I felt the most at home. I remember taking pictures with Kate, being introduced to new food, and not a care in the world. Oh and I also got so tan because I would swim for days at a time. Those were the best times of my life. Truly.
In the summers I stay with Kate. Kate is like my other mom. I talk about her a ton! Probably because I love her so much. She's taught me so much. She's taught me to never settle. To be my own person, even when it's hard. She's also taught me how to love life. She's one of my most favorite people on this whole planet. I owe her so much....maybe one day she'll take me on one her many worldly travels :)

Day 7

I'm on Day 7. Favorite movie day! I love movies. There is nothing better than curling up on the couch with a blanket, Diet Coke, noodles, and good movie :) I love it! Okay so my faves are....

The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio. Seriously, such a great film! It's based on a true story, which is why I think I love it so much. And I always love when movies have a strong female lead. This story is about how much a mother sacrifices for her family and how basically she keeps it all together at a time when women didn't really work outside the home, or inside for that matter. It's beautiful.

Next is Runaway Bride. LOVE THIS MOVIE! And honestly, it's just a romantic comedy. Nothing really super special. But I remember one summer I couldn't get enough. I'd put it in the VCR and press play. When it was over, I would rewind it and watch it again. So good :)

Easy A. What do you even say about this movie? It took me a while to watch it, but my friends Austin and Taylor kept quoting it so they decided I had to watch it. I'm so glad they did! The writing is brilliant. The chemistry between the actors is beautiful. And the story is wonderful. Best movie. :)

Doris Day at her best. She's timeless ya know? Rock Hudson and Doris Day have such captivating chemistry on screen, it's so fun to watch. I love this movie because it's a unique story line, and so funny :) But again, a romantic comedy :) Surprise, Surprise!

Day 6

Something that makes me happy? There are so many things!!!

Let's start with the obvious, shall we?I'm just kidding. Even though this llama is pretty cute!

But a lot of things make me happy....so here we go :)

This is my mommy. And she's wonderful. And I love her. :)

This is Arryn! She's my best friend :)

These people are the greatest people on the planet. I love them with all of my heart will go on.
This is my roomie Grace. I love her collages. And her rants about life. And everything pretty much!

This is my Scott. He's the smartest, most talented, best friend anyone could ask for. I love him to pieces and then some :) He's just infinite.

This is Tim!!! He's so freaking talented it's insane. And He's also one of the funniest people I know. Thanks Pocket Tim....for everything :)

Last but certainly not least....

This is the Kelton. He's wonderful in pretty much every way :) And definitely makes me happy :)

I'm a lucky girl to have so many wonderful people around me to make me smile :)

I'm a day behind! Sorry Kids! Okay so today is a song to match my mood. I've had a great weekend so far and this is song is just happiness.
