Thank You All Around

I've been pretty selfish these days. I haven't expressed to anyone how grateful I am. So here goes nothing...

I'm grateful for my dad and all the love and support he has given me through the years. Without him I'm not sure if i would be as functional as I am. I love you daddy. Thanks for all the amazing traits and qualities you have given me. One day i hope to be as successful as you. Our little vacay this weekend is going to be amazing, so excited.

Thank you for giving the world good music.

I'm really really grateful for my wonderful Willow Brook Family. Most of them have been there for my in my time of need. Now I know I bash on WB a lot, but for the most part I'm pretty glad I made the choice to live there. Apartment 10 is pretty amazing, apartment 14 and 38 and 39 have some pretty great people living in them too.

Michelle and Alex, I love you more than words could describe. Now I know I'm loud and crazy, and when we play catch phrase you want to punch me in the face, but thanks for not doing that. You girls make me so happy. I'm grateful to live with you. Sorry things haven't been the best at our house, but things will get better. I know that for a fact. LOVE YOU GIRLS!

I'm grateful for pickles.

To my best friend. I know you're far away, but I love snap chatting you. I wish you knew how much I missed you. Please move back to cedar, I need you more than you need me. :) Thanks for loving me even when I disappoint you.

Thank you to the Dr who is has helped me get my life back in check, well for the most part. I'm grateful for modern medicine thats for sure.

I'm grateful for Disneyland. I really believe that it is the happiest place in the world.

I'm thankful for sloths. They are ugly I know, but they make me happy and thats all that matters.

I'm also extremely grateful for my little Boston and Navy. They are some of the cutest kids I have ever nannied for. They make me laugh ever day. I always am looking forward to Tuesday and Thursday. Sometimes they test my patience, but they make me look forward to having kids of my own one day.

I'm grateful for movies that make me believe that true love and happy ever afters still happen in this sick messed up world. You know the movies that you get the warm and fuzzes and make you say, "this doesn't happen in real life." I really want to believe it does, and it will happen for me one day. Maybe I just shouldn't get my hopes up, but I'm a girl.

Confession of Lizzy Brown: People have told me that I care too much, but its better than not caring at all right?

Long Time No Blog

Hello. I'm so bad at this blogging thing, like really bad.  Life has just been like really crazy.

I'll fill you in on the life of Lizzy Brown.

1. I've finished my first semster at SUU. I loved almost ever mintue here. SUU is such an amazing school, and I've met some pretty wonderful people and i've done some pretty crazy stuff. Danced on the stage, secret relationships, midnight walks, 80's stripper dance parties, etc. I can't believe I have one year of college under my belt, thats crazy.

2. I'm all moved out of apartemnt 46, and all moved into my new apartment with Alex and Michelle. I have my own room, don't get me wrong I loved sharing a room with chicken legs, but having my own room is very nice. I really like where I live and a lot of my friend live here. It's going to be a lot of fun living over here in Willow Brook.

3. There's been a boy for the past little bit, not a boyfriend. Just a boy. I like him and he's great, but I'm not sure whats going to come of it. Maybe something good, maybe nothing who knows. It's really confusing the more I think about it, so I've decided just not to think and just live in the moment So...

4. I lost one of the best things that has happened to me. I got let go of being a summer orientation leader. :( I have been really really upset, and really could understand why I was given this amazing job and opptunity to just have it taken from me. After thoughtless hours of thinking and praying I think I know why this happened. I'm pretty sure I was suppose to met all these people. Each one of them have thought me something about myself that I really didn't even know. They have helped me grow as a person, and for that I will forever be grateful.

5. I am now 19 years old. My birthday was on Thursday and it was the BEST DAY EVER (I serious hope you read that just as tangled says it.) My roommates are so amazing and made me cupcakes and bought me floating launders. I even got my very first lap dance from my good friend Tyson. Heres to 19.

Confessions of the one and only Lizzy Brown: Trusting in the Lord and just having hope is probably the only thing that has been getting me through my days the past couple of weeks. I'm grateful for a loving heavenly father who has a plan for me.

O- Leader Lovin

I have been truly blessed with some amazing people in my life. My Orientation Leader family is full of some pretty amazing people. Don't believe me? Well come to Cedar City and I'll be more then happy to introduce you to all 20 of them, well there is 19 of them, I'm the 20th person.

This past Friday we got to go on retreat up to Brian head. I really didn't want to go. I was scared for what the weekend had in store, and iIreally don't like camping. Don't you worry we didn't camp, we were in a cabin.  When we first got there we got our room assignments. All the girls upstairs, all the boys downstairs and Lizzy and Cami got to be with the boys downstairs. We had a lot of bro time, I even got a boy name, Lewis I think was my name!

I just got to learn so much about these people and I have gained such a greater respect of each and everyone of them. I feel like I went up there knowing a few of them, then  came home with 20 new best friends. seriously. They are all such amazing people, and I miss them already.

We played catch phrase. It was amazing. So fun. Some of us who will remained nameless got a little crazy. But it was a lot of fun, its my favorite game.

Also my friend Ryan turned a green balloon into Mike Wazowski. Its like my best friend now. He got to go on a little hike yesterday and watch a movie with me. Brianna wouldn't let me bring Mike to the library last night. I don't know why because Mike didn't want to stay at home.

Any ways I'm sooo excited for this summer to work every day with my friends. Orientation will be soo amazing. So if your coming to SUU this fall, you will have some pretty amazing O-Leaders.

Confessions of the one and only Lizzy Brown: I have a proposal paper due Friday and I still can't come up with a proposal. Help!!

Lets talk about JLaw for a second. Did you watch the Oscars last night? If you didn't that's a shame, you should have made time. Oh you had homework, yup don't care. Your boyfriend came over, still could have watched. Say what.. you fell asleep, now that's just sad.

Jennifer Lawrence was the best dressed of the night. I mean look at her. Stunning. Simple stunning. The peplum waist line, so 1940's and the red on the red carpet. LOVE! The jewelry was just enough, the simple diamond necklace love it. Ah. She looks like she should be on the cover of Vanity Fair.
I know you all think I have a women crush on Jen, its because I do. She is such an amazing role model. She is so successful and so down to earth. OH don't believe me, go look up some interviews on you-tube, you'll see. She also is extremely funny, and loves food.

Jennifer is like a normal person and just walked outside and became famous. She don't act like most actors and actress.

If one day I can be half as successful and half as funny as JLaw my life would be complete.

One day I will meet her, and I'll tell her we were meant to be best friends. Because I think we were sister and I was just given up for adoption, they knew I wouldn't even be half as great as my older sister. I mean look at us, don't we kinda look alike. Just kidding, I wish.

Confession of the one and only Lizzy Brown: If you were wondering that selfie Ellen took with all my favorite people, yes it is my phone wallpaper. Got a problem with that?

Takes Two

Happy Spring! Oh its not spring where you are, well it is in Cedar City. High of today was 66. Now that's spring weather if you ask me. I hope life is going great, I also hope you all had wonderful V-days. :)

Now I'm only 18 years old, I'll be 19 in a few months but I have learned some very great info if you care to know what it is continue on reading....

Marriage is about compromise. Give and take on both ends. Now you are thinking what does Lizzy Brown know about marriage. Not a whole lot, I'm not married I've only been in a few relationships and none have really worked out. But I came from a family of divorced parents and I read a lot of relationships books. If i could give anyone advice its learn to compromise now, it will be a lot easier when you are in a relationship. That is why I don't think any of mine worked out, I was too set on myself and what I wanted out of it and i didn't even care about the other person.

It also takes two to break two. Growing up with divorced parents it was very easy to get caught playing the blame game. "Well she did this, that's why we aren't together." or my favorite "Oh well you tell him, that its his fault and I did nothing wrong." Wrong, I believe and have seen first handle in my own life and in the lives of people around me it takes two to break two. You can't have a fight and think you did absolutely nothing wrong. There is a fault somewhere, go back and check your work; you will find the error.

Dear future husband, I saw this super cute bunny on Pinterest, can we have one one day? I think our kids would really enjoy one. And if we can't have a bunny lets get a dog. Your pick, I would enjoy something smaller, but like I said, your pick. Also I don't care if we are poor for a bit, lets just be poor together. We don't need big rings, or a big house right away. As long as we are happy, lets do it together.

Enjoy your life people, I know I'm young and why would anyone take any advice from me. Well I've been through a lot in my life, a lot of dark places people don't even know about. I've watched a marriage first handle fall apart, I've seen two people fall out of love with each other, yet the passion is still there. I've learned a lot in my little life so take what you will. :)

Confessions of the one and only Lizzy Brown: I am so obsessed with my hair right now. I want it to grow long long, I love my new blonde color I would go blonder if it wouldn't completely kill my hair. My hair is  like my baby, I love it so much.

Miss Me?

I'm back! I'm sorry I dropped off the face of the blog spot earth there for a little bit. I'm sorry about that. My life is great. I have a really great job I love, I go to school every day, and I'm an O-Leader. Yeah, that will never get old.

Okay people listen up. I've learned a few things and I'm going to share them with you right now.

Its okay to like Valentines day. I've hated it for most my teen life, and this year I can't wait to celebrate it. No, I don't have a man. Yes, I do have some super fun plans! :)

I've learned that 32 days can not come soon enough. Disneyland with some of my really good friends can not wait for this trip.
Also learned I probably should have taken my nutrient class. Every bad thing he tells us could go wrong with our body's i feel like i have it. Of when he talks about a disease I feel like i have that too.... But I LOVE the class. Everyone should take a nutrient class. I've learned a lot.

I've also learned that in five years I have changed so much, for better. Five years ago I was an 8th grade brat who danced 6 days of the week, loved Lucy from Charlie Brown, and all I ever wanted to do was fit in. After that I discovered myself, join theater, found out I decent voice and really feel like 100 bucks on the stage. Being on stage I just felt like a light was shining off my body and I wanted everyone to see me. You think my self-centered? I'm not you get on stage and try it, you will see.  Also in those years I found out that boys are bad. All they do is buy you dinner, tell you your pretty and leave you with heart ache in your time of desperate need.

Now here I am in college refection on my very young life. I don't think I would do anything over again. Everything that has happened to me has shaped me into the person I am. I wouldn't really be me without them. My parents divorce, my grandmas death, my best friend moving away, fighting with my mom, the friends I picked, watching chick flicks, dancing, theater, up to me coming to SUU. I feel so blessed to be here, this school is for me. And if you think its for you, it is. :)

Thank you to everyone in my life. You have all made an impact on me. Even if you don't even know me and just read my blog. Thank you. Thank you for the days you have been there for me. Thank you for making my laugh, or cry,or want to punch you in the face. Thank you. Thank you. Without you I wouldn't be me. And I think me is pretty amazing.

Confession of Lizzy Brown: I think I have a crush on one of my professors. NO he isn't old, hes cute maybe married, who knows. Okay enough of that.
