A little rambling...

Since I don't really keep a journal I'd like to write down some of my thoughts. This whole site is about making my dreams come true and helping me to become the person I want to before I leave this world. The past couple of weeks have felt harder than usual. I kind of feel like I am sinking within my crazy world. I try my hardest to be a good person/wife/mom/sister/friend/daughter of god yet I feel like I am letting a lot of people down. For those of you who will read this, please know that it is not a pity party for me. I just need to write my feelings down. I am trying my hardest and I think my heavenly father is proud of me. I think I have come along way from my selfish teenage years. I guess what I'm trying to say is...I'm proud of you Kamie. You're a great person and you don't hear that very often (especially coming from me).
So what will I do with this? Nothing for now. My life is too crazy to try and make everyone happy. So if you have been angry with my recently, I ask you to be kind. I'm a tender hearted person who shouldn't take so many things to heart. But I still do.

The newest blog...

Since I now have four different blogs, I'm starting to feel like this is an obsession. Luckily this one won't be updated quite as much. It's mainly for Nate and I to write down things we want to do before we leave this world. I originally got the idea from Kellie to do the blog. However, I've had a bucket list since my 7th grade year up at GYC camp.

A few years down the road I found this list that was mainly about kissing popular boys and meeting celebrities. Still, there were a few I find myself wanting to do and some I've already done. Here's what I got so far...

1. Go to a harbor (Done! My mom and I went to a beautiful harbor in California for my senior trip)
2. Skydiving
3. See Paris
4. Plant 100 trees (So far I've only done three)
5. Be in a movie (I was on "Everwood" does that count?)
6. Save a persons life (My 8th grade summer I traveled up to Lave Hot Springs with my friend Ashley Cragun and her family. Her little sister Jessica was tubing down the river with us when she fell off her tube and started getting sucked under. I jumped off my tube and planted my feet as firm as possible and grabbed her hand. I'll never forget her face as I pulled her to the shore. She looked me straight in the eye and said "You saved my life." I think that one counts.
7. Direct 100 plays/musicals
8. Paint a house bright yellow (funny because I want my house yellow!)
9. Go to every state in the U.S.
10. Hold a 10-foot snake
11. Hold a porky pine (Wow for a 7th-grader I really wasn't afraid of much. Last summer I freaked out when I barely touched the back of a stingray)
12. Have Kids (Yes! Another on down)
13. Go to Holland and buy wooden shoes
14. Get a picture of me with the Eiffel tower (technically I have a picture of me with the Eiffel tower Nate built for me)
15. Run a 5k all the way (I'm actually training for that right now!)
16. See the Titanic in real life

After I found this list I wanted to add more and thus became my new list
1. Go to Paris
2. Go Skydiving
3. Save some one's life (Done)
4. Take a picture with the Eiffel Tower and I
5. Sing on the radio
6. Have kids (Done)
7. Plant 100 trees
8. Try out for American Idol (Done)
9. Read a book in French
10. Visit every state in the U.S.
11. See the titanic in real life
12. Paint a house bright yellow
13. Hold a 10-foot snake
14. See the birth-place of Jesus Christ
15. Go to Holland and buy wooden shoes
16. Run a 5k all the way!
17. Hold a porky pine
18. Be on The Price is Right
19. Ride in a hot air balloon
20. Swim with dolphins (Done)
21. Buy a house with cash
22. Meet Sutton Foster
23. Get paid to perform (Done)
24. Go to Martinique.
25. Write a Musical
26. Read the Book of Mormon in three days
27. Dance to "The nearness of you" with my husband on our 50th wedding anniversary
28. Finish a marathon
29. Eat chocolate gold
30. See my children get married in the temple
31. Be in a movie

33.

Anyway that's what I got so far. I'll check back whenever I get closer to accomplishing one of them.
