If I Could Write a Letter To Me

Dear Future Natalie,
Greetings from the past! At this moment in time, you are 16 years old. It's the summer before your junior year. You love to sing, talk, flirt, eat and blog! You have a plan for your life, did it happen? Are you the 3rd grade teacher you thought you'd be? Are you married to Prince Charming and raising your babies? Or did you go on a mission first? The 16 year old you has thought about that....only time will tell.

Being a sixteen year old girl, you naturally are do I put this....
You have lots of crushes.....
But the boy that truly has your heart is your nephew Warren, who just turned six yesterday.

You also adore his sisters, Abigail, Avery and Madeleine Rose.

You probably have several more nieces and nephews now.... I'm sure you're still playing with them and acting like a nut!

You start summer school tomorrow. You're not happy about it, but it'll be worth it come fall. If you don't take history now, then you can't do student council, and we both know how much you want to do that! Also, this summer you're going to be participating in ASU Star Talk program. For two weeks in July you'll be living in the ASU dorms. In the morning, you'll be learning the chinese language, and in the afternoon and evening, you'll be learning about the culture! You're VERY excited! Ever since you went to Paris, you've wanted to learn about the world around you and about the way other people live.

You have several mottos that you live your life by:

"Life's not about waiting for the storm to pass,
it's about learning to dance in the rain."

"Go big or go home."

"Love it or Hate it, its your life. Live it."

I'll see you in the mirror in a couple years,

A Date, Two Dares, and an Internal Bruise???

Tuesday night was Fabulous! Two of my girlfriends and I decided to plan a triple date! We did a progressive dinner which started with Salad at Susannah's house. We also did a game at every house. The first one was How Well Do You Know Your Date. And ALL the boys won!
So at the next house, Katie's, the boys got to eat their scrumptious spaghetti first!
Then we played Apples to Apples and headed to my house for.........
PIZOOKIES and swimming!!!
And that is when we started a ridiculous game of
Team Truth or Dare.
Basically the truth option became void and you HAD to a dare with your date.
Well let me just say that Tyler and I got the WORST of the dares.
But before I tell you about the first dare, here's a little background information.
My dear friend Tyler and I met in Karate. He was the only boy who would actually try and fight me. All the other boys didn't want to hit a girl. But Tyler WOULD NOT be beat by a girl. So naturally he kicked my trash every time we fought. And I loved it! How was I supposed to get better if no one would try???
So anywho, the other boys on our date, Jacob and Sam, knew this. So all night they'd been bugging us to fight each other. And when it was our turn to do a dare they got their chance. They made us get out of the pool, get on the trampoline and fight.
Take down, tap out.
I looked at Tyler and was like
"Let's just get this over with."
So within 15 seconds he had me down and in a choke hold.
Like an
"I can't breathe, let go or I'll die choke hold!"
As we got back in the pool I was doing my best to breathe normally and not cry...
And I suceeded!
No tears!
I'm a tough girl!

Anywho, too soon, we had to do a dare again.
And it was ridiculous.
"Act out the balcony scene of Romeo and Juliet."
They weren't.
So there we were, me on top of our slide with Ty on the diving board, confessing our love to each other in Old English.
Sam and Jacob scripted us.
Me: Tyler Oh Tyler, thy muscles are rippling.
Ty: Natalie Oh Natalie, thy beauty is comparable to the moon in al its glory.
Then they spent five minutes trying to get "Romeo" to kiss me.
I could practically see the battle going on in Ty's head.
Everyone in the pool was staring shamelessly like it was a movie!
Finally, after minutes of goading, Ty leaned up and kissed me on the cheek.

After everyone left, my neck was still hurting from the choke hold.
And Wednesday it was worse.
I got really paranoid, thinking I had a bruise on my neck!
But then multiple people told me they couldn't see anything.
Which meant that the bruise is internal...
Which is why it hurts so much!!!!
So there you have it, A Date, Two Dares and an Internal Bruise.

To My Children

Dear Babies,
Yes I'm calling you my babies, though you're probably much older than that, especially if you're reading this by yourself. But I'll let you in on a little secret, you will always be my baby! Even when you're old I will love you just as much, and probably even more, than the day you were born and I held you in my arms. I can't wait to be your mom! To play games with you, to teach you things, and have you teach me things!
You're going to grow, and the older you get, the more I'll want you to stay my little one forever. But I'll always be there to support you in all your hopes and dreams!

Maybe we'll have similar interests. Maybe we'll have a fun hobby we love to do together! Maybe we won't. Either way, it doesn't matter. We'll still have fun!

As you grow up, I promise to teach you everything I know. Especially the really important things. There are three things I really want you to know.
1. You are Loved.
2. You're a Child of God
3. We can be together Forever!

There's so much more I want to tell you, but it'll have to wait till you're here with me.
Know that I love you with all my heart, and I always will.

HELP!!!! I Am Not a Worm

I need your help.
I need books to read!
Any suggestions??

I really like romances.....
If it doesn't have any romance I probably won't read it....
Adventure+a Hotttie+true unrequited love

Also, I do try to be selective with what I read, so if you wouldn't let your own teenage daughter read it, don't suggest it.

Thanks in advanced for your input!
I look forward to your suggestions!!!

You Know You're At A Mormon Party When.....

1. The first game you play is missionary tag.
2. The worst thing in the cooler is Mt. Dew.

3. The dinner is a potluck

4. Everyone leaves by ten thirty and goes straight home.

Ya gotta love it!!!!!!!

Miscellaneous Madness

Yes, yesterday I sounded like a Negative Nelly.
(Scroll down for exhibit A.)

But the truth is,
life is pretty swell right now.

Today was my last full day of school.

My big sister is getting hitched tomorrow to her own personal Prince Charming.

Therefore, we have alot of great family in town AND...
Summer is just around the corner!

Never mind

the fact that I have two finals tomorrow that I am extremely nervous about.

Never mind
the fact that I'm blogging instead of studying.

Never mind
the fact that I'm going to miss my sister VERY VERY much and will probably ball me eyes out all day tomorrow.

Kris Allen is the foxiest thing since George Clooney.

Adam Lambert scares me.

I RatalieNose officially suffer from this condition:
Obsessive Blogging Disorder
But true.
Well not really sad....
I personally love it!!!


Dear Two People Who Selected the Last Option On My Poll,

If I don't know you:
I'm sorry that that is your opinion of me....
if there's something I can do to change it, let me know!

If I do know you and you're joking:
Haha you're so funny.

If I know you and you're serious:

Phrases I Loathe

Why aren't you living up to your potential?

I know you can do better.

Those are shallow standards.

That's not gonna work.

Do you have any homework?

Is that really the best decision?

Natalie, stop talking.


Are you okay?

What's wrong?

To My Husband

Dear Prince Charming,

I've waited a long time to find to you. You've been on my mind for what seems like forever. I think about you constantly, what kind of man you are, how our life together will be. And you know what? It makes me so happy! Because I just know that you're everything I'll ever want. I can't wait to start our forever together.

So I feel like I need to thank you. Thank you for keeping yourself clean and waiting for me. I've always dreams of being taken to the Temple by a worthy priesthood holder, and now, here you are! Also, thanks for being willing to put up with me for Eternity. I know it won't be easy. I can be a difficult person sometimes but as time goes on, things will get easier, I'm sure of it.

Now there are some things I should warn you about. First of all, I'm a disorganized pack rat. I'll do everything in my power to make our house one of order, but I'm not making any promises. Also, when I get really excited about things, I get a tad obsessive. So don't be worried if I start freaking out about something little, it will pass. Thirdly, you should know that I have quite a temper that is really easy to flare. My death stares have been known to kill. (Pun intended.) I'll do my best to not get mad at you but again, no promises. Well there are many more things I should warn you about, but I think I'll let you discover those one your own.

Charming, I know our marriage won't be perfect. Whose is? We're not always going to agree. We'll probably fight once in awhile, maybe more than that. But we'll work through the hard times, and our relationship will get that much stronger. No matter what happens, I promise that I will always love you. I promise to be a good mother to our children, (I really want a big family!) I promise to cook for you, do your laundry and keep your house as functional as possible. (Notice how the word "Clean" is not mentioned.)

If it's just the two of us, I don't know how long our love will last. But, lucky for us, we have someone else on our side. If we always rely on the Lord, if we do what our leaders ask and if we love the Lord more than ourselves, we should be just fine. He will help our love to grow and flourish and I know that we'll be very happy.

I love you with all my heart,
Natalie Rose
(Your Princess)

Recently, Rusty got his wisdom teeth out.
So I opted to take him some Ice Cream and Mt. Dew.
I rode my bike to his house and I was wearing white shorts.
I kept feeling something wet,
So I look down.
So I get to Rusty's house and we sit on his couch to have a chat.
I tried to sit on my legs, just in case.
So awhile later I get home and I take off my white shorts
THE ENTIRE BACK SIDE IS RED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Monday rolls around and I see Rusty in first hour.
Our conversation went something like this:

Me: Rusty I'm going to ask you a question and I need you to promise that you won't ask me why I'm asking you.
Rusty: Ummm okay.
Me: Promise?
Rusty: Yes.
Me: Is there a spot on your couch?
Rusty: Uhhh no.
Me: You sure?
Rusty: Yeah. Why?
Me: You REALLY don't wanna know.
Rusty: Okay.
THANK GOODNESS FOR DARK COUCHES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm a Terrible Liar: Part Three

Here comes the third story for our game.
(Scroll down to read the previous two and to figure out what the heck is going on.)

It was the first day of seventh grade.
I was SOOOO excited!
Jr. High here I come!!!!
Elementary was history!!!
I was looking forward to not having to deal with the same teacher ALL day!
And of course
And that is where our story begins.
There was this one boy:
We'll call him Samley.
He was SOOOO CUTE!!!!!!!
Every seventh grade girl had her eye on him....
But guess who had four classes with him???
So there we were, sitting side by side in
Ms. Quinn's Seventh Grade Advanced Math Class.
I was in heaven!
He was just SOO FREAKING CUTE!!!!!
But then, disaster struck.
I got that feeling.
Like sick-to-my-stomace-I'm-going-to-die feeling.
Blasted school hamburger that wasn't cooked all the way through!!!!!
It was too late to leave class.....
I threw up.
He didn't speak to me for the rest of the year.

I'm a Terrible Liar: Part Two

For those of you just joining us,


We're playing a little game this week:

Three Truths and a Lie.

Scroll down to the previous post for how to play and to read the first story.

Story Two is coming your way right now:

I once paid $9 for a Coke.
Like less than 32 oz of it.
Sad but true.
Here's why:
I was on top of the Eiffel Tower.
You know, like in Paris?
Well, I was thirsty.
So I sauntered into the little resturant thing that they have up there and looked for the price of a drink.
6 EUROS!!!
Yes friends, that translates to nine American dollars.
After I overcame the shock of such a large price, I began to think.
"When am I ever going to be able to drink a Coke on top of the Eiffel Tower again???
Ummm never!!!
So what the heck," I thought.
"I'll just do it."
So I did.
And guess what?
It was the best Coke I'd ever tasted.

Installment Numero Tres will be featured Manyana.
(Yes, I'm very white.)

I'm a Terrible Liar: Part One

We are going to play:

Three Truths and a Lie

(Got this great idea from Camille and C Jane.

Here's how it goes:

Starting today, I will tell you four stories.

Three of them will be honest to goodness fact.

One will not.

You will decide what that one is.

I'll have a poll on my sidebar and you can also tell me your vote in the comment box.

Story One:

One evening, after a long, fun day of sightseeing Paris I was riding the Metro home.
Now that I look back on it I was quite cranky and tired,
When all of a sudden......
There he was.
He just sauntered his sexy self onto the Metro and parked his cute toosh
WO IS ME!!!!
But how to do so without looking like a creeper????
There was an accordion player entertaining us on the metro that day.
So very nonchalantly I turned around, "watching the accordion player" while surreptiously checking out Mr. "I make green eyes look HOTTTT"
After a couple stops Mr. IMGELH got off.
A couple more stops and it was the accordian players turn to get off.
He came around to collect a little dough for his services.
I promptly scurried to grab my wallet and pulled out the first money that my hands touched.
I then proceeded to put it in his cup.
To this day, I still don't know how much money I put in there.....
I was so grateful to him, that it didn't matter!

Stay Tuned for Story Two Tomorrow!
