//We dropped my sweet little sister off at the MTC (Missionary Training Center) this week. She's started her own eighteen month mission adventure and if I'm speaking frankly, I'm kind of jealous. It was weird to go through the whole process of sending off a missionary... and NOT be the one leaving. I must say, being on this side of things is hard. Oh, missions-- you love 'em but they cause so much emotional turmoil. Good luck, Jadie Lady. (I MISS YOU ALREADY.)

//Taylor Dale gets so much harassment for his beard. I personally like it. But then again, I've always loved facial hair. (I've tried to grow out a beard myself a couple of times but it just didn't go over too well. Okay-- sorry, that was a lame joke.) For the record, Tay, I like your beard.

//I've officially been home for two weeks. It's been quite the adventure. It's weird to be back in real life with all of the people who, at one point, seemed like nothing more than a dream. But they're real people and they're a real part of my life and sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure that I'm not just dreaming. Sometimes I pinch Taylor too, just to make sure I'm not dreaming. 

//I've never been that great at making decisions. I was always that girl who refused to choose where to go out to eat and who always just ordered what everyone else ordered because MAN do I hate making decisions. But these days I've been making a lot of really big, life-changing decisions and it's been quite the experience. I'll probably elaborate eventually-- but for now just be content knowing that I'm a big girl now making big girl decisions.

I'm not really sure what else to say. I feel like it's going to take me a bit to get back in the spin of things here in the blogging society. But in order to give a kick-start to things, give me some questions to answer! It's time to re-introduce myself and my life and I'm not really sure how to go about doing that without questions to answer. 

So, what questions do you have for me?
Don't be shy.



  1. Facial hair>clean shaven. looks good Taylor Dale.

    My little sister gets home in 4 1/2 months (!!!!!!!!!!!) How do you recommend bringing her back into reality without giving her a heart attack?

    1. Just help her take it slow! Don't really ask her about anything she wants to do until she actually gets home, but when that day comes, just give her a few days to unpack and get used to things then help her make a list of goals and things she hopes to accomplish. Having plans helps a LOT! Keep her busy and it will keep her happy! :) But for now just keep supporting her as a missionary and don't mention "home" too often. ;)

  2. I'd love to know more about you, but I'm not sure what to ask! Have you considered making an introductory video? My friends and I are doing a vlog challenge, maybe you'd be interested as well :)
    Go here for the details!

    1. Good idea!! :)

      Definitely going to take that into consideration!
      (If only I wasn't so awkward on videos!)

  3. Fabulous, CaLea! Are you going to update Jade's mission blog???
    Glad you're home. Your talk was the BEST!!!

    1. Yep! I will be her mission-blog-slave! :)
