happy birthday you little cutie

Dad I love you. Happy birthday you little oldie! You are wonderful

My dad is an amazing man! sure we've had our differences (or similarities because we are the exact same person just with opposing opinions) but i love him! He is so funny... or at least he thinks he is! :) there are so many things about him that make me smile. Dad your a trooper and im so glad to be your daughter.

My dad has always had a fun way of intimidating us for suprises....  
ex: when we were younger he told us that we were in huge trouble and that we had better go down stairs and clean the bathroom... so we did. we were really upset that he was so mad at us but when we opened the bathroom door there was a little puppy waiting for us! :) RIP chancey! my dad did this frequently whether it was with the nintendo in the back of the van or the harlem globe trotters, he found some way of making us think we were in trouble.. but really we always got a good surprise!

My dad is a very hard worker. He has held teaching, coaching, church callings, and lawn mowing jobs all at once. He is always working hard to give our family everything we need.... or want :)

My dad is a very caring, honest and sincere person. there is no gray with him.. its either white or black. he knows whats right and he does it. and expects his kids to do the same. 

He taught me how to be a hard worker (im kind of falling out of that habit) and has made me a stronger person. I will forever love him for being him!

For those of you that are wondering.. my dad is doing great. He is continuing to teach school and coach girls basketball. They had a wonderful season this year being undefeated in the regular season and going on to state. although the end result wasnt what they had hoped for they still had an awesome year.

He is still on treatments and has been for 2 1/2 years now. It is amazing how positive and strong he has been throughout this whole experience. although i know he is in pain.. i never hear him complain. He is holding strong and doing great. 

I love you dad. Your the greatest.

for the past two days, ive honestly done nothing but stare at the computer. in my graphic design class we were assigned to design a lottery ticket for the idaho state lottery... well it was due today... thus in the past two nights i have probably gotten 4 1/2 hours of total sleep! im so tired... i think my ticket turned out pretty good.. you will just have to wait to see it. we actually submit them to the idaho lottery and the winner gets $1000.00!! so hopefully they like what they see... if so.... new wardrobe here i come.

food storage

Sam and I attended a leadership meeting last night. They showed a video from the First Presidency about SELF RELIANCE
For some reason the past few weeks I have really been feeling the need to get some food storage, so this message again reminded me of how important it is to be prepared.
It just so happens that Ridleys in Pocatello has been having a huge CASE LOT SALE this weekend, so today I ventured out and got PREPARED
I guess as prepared as a couple of college students can get.
What am I going to do with all this food? 
Hopefully we really wont end up needing it.

my name is kyrsten...


This is serious people. Recently I have found myself spending more than a sufficient amount of time on the internet surfing blogs, and I have decided enough is enough. 
Yesterday I told myself that I was going to go all day without checking my blog or looking on anyone elses... 
after a long day of class and work and NO BLOGGING, I found myself in what I felt like what a COLD SWEAT... 
I couldnt take it anymore... I HAD TO LOOK. 
I sat down at my computer and I gave in.
It wasnt for long.. I PROMISE. 
after realizing that I wasnt keeping a promise I had made to myself, i quickly pushed the RED X and left my house.
I felt guilty.
I still do.
Please help.

MAde With LoVe

I saw this on a couple of friends blogs actually and thought it was a great idea! Here's my chance to get more creative! The first 5 people to respond to this post will get something made by me. My choice. For you. (I know...a little scary, but maybe fun, huh?)

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1- I make no guarantees that you will like it .
2- What I create will be just for you.
3- It'll be done by the end of April.
4- You have no clue what it's going to be.

It may be a loaf of homemade bread (not likely). It may be a bag, a card, or a blog header. YOu never know you may get a bow, a sign, or some cookies. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure! The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must re-post this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog. The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did it will then win a Fabulous homemade something made by me!

Ready, Set,....GO!!!
