THE WHITE'S WEDDING

 I spent the past week in Las Vegas for MY BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING! Seriously I think I might like wedding weekend more than my birthday. It's so fun to be back with friends and for such a happy occasion! Hannah White feels so right!
 We started the weekend off with a little rehearsal dinner with all the bridesmaids in Vegas
 Then took a little trip to see the Bellagio fountains with the wedding party 
 
^^ The last picture I ever took with Hannah Leavitt 
 
as per tradition... 
 We all felt like vampire queens in our sassy long black dresses haha!
 PRETTIEST BRIDE!
 
 
It was also so fun to be a bridesmaid with my Gabs! 
 
 
2 minutes after having a little bathroom break jamming to feeling myself. It was necessary. Check it on the vlog.
Congrats to the cutest couple! I couldn't be happier that my best friend found somebody to make her so happy for the rest of eternity. We dreamed about this day forever!! I love you Conner and Hannah White!

NINETEEN

 Everybody always talks about how you don’t feel that different after a birthday. Like how does it feel to be 19? You never have any idea because you’ve only been 19 (or 18, 17…) for a little bit. I think on birthdays you can’t tell how it will feel to be a new age but you can officially tell how it felt to be the one you just left behind. 

So my life as an 18 year old is officially over, that chapter is written in stone, everything from here on out will be chapter 19. 

Here’s the chapter 18 things that I wouldn’t mind keeping up in 19 too:

-traveling all over the place! While 18 I went to New York, Paris, Florida, San Francisco, and from Vegas to California to Utah pretty much several times a month. I hope 19 holds the same adventures

-making so many wedding videos. I think I’ll forever consider 18 as when I went all in, took off, and started getting more jobs that I really loved. Who knows thought! Maybe I can be more all in. 

It’s been a really long year. I joke with everybody that I’ve been 18 for my entire life but that’s really how it feels. I can hardly even remember a time before then. I'm so excited for what this year will bring!!
I woke up to streamers and balloons all over the apartment from the sweetest roommates and best friends ever! Super sucky, I had class for a big part of the day but it was still okay because every hour had a little bit of birthday magic. The birthday fairy is real guys. 
Also if you aren't already, live every day like it's your birthday. There's no other day that you love yourself more, or are more excited to wake up, motivated to get ready and look cute, and just plain have so much fun than your birthday. Who says you can't do that all the time!? IDK just some life insight I gained on September 5, 2017.
Mom surprised me and schemed with Syd to get the yummiest Sweet Tooth Fairy cake! I'm still dreaming about it!
 
 

ONE MONTH(ish) IN PROVO

 Just a little blog post to document what the past few weeks have consisted of...
 FINALLY got moved in to my new apartment in Provo. Let's just say there was a little bit of drama getting the keys and everything sorted out... BUT it's fine now! Hopefully pictures of my room coming soon if I ever get it done? Haha!
 such fun bonding with Syd before our other roomies Bella & Maddie moved in (and before our TV worked hah!)
There was quite a bit of filming and hustling all over the place to get the shot! 
Also a lot of killing time at City Creek in between shoots/running into Corbin between his too 
KHALID came to SLC right after we all moved up and was such a fun concert! 
 
Other things that are part of the new routine are rolled ice cream, 
old  Provo temple trips,
 
 dirty dancing class @ VASA on Thursday nights,
My cute family came to visit me before my birthday! It was so fun showing them around my new home. We went to Sundance and rode the lift which for sure makes my list of coolest things to do in Utah! 
 
 
And waiting in line/camping out 24 hours in advance for front row seats to the BYU vs UofU game. SO WORTH IT!
