Tonight, I had the chance to see #ThePrincessBride on the big screen with some of my friends. I was 9 when it came out the first time and I don’t remember if I saw it in the theater then or not. I’m glad I did tonight. It was so much fun. I’m absolutely amazed at how quiet everyone was (other than laughing of course) and in keeping the quoting to a minimum. 😳😂 #asyouwish #dropyoursword #iwouldntsaysuchthingsifiwereyou
Thanks to my friend @jayne_partyof5 for letting me know Target had these, I have a new llama in my collection. Meet Llars, my not-for-cookies cookie jar. (Name courtesy of @xtinaluvalot.) Isn’t he adorable?! ❤️❤️❤️ He’s my 9th llama. I’m already on the lookout for number 10! #llamalover #llamallamallama
I finally had the chance to tell Ally Condie how much I love Summerlost last night at the Orem Library.
🚴🏽‍♀️Summerlost is my favorite of all her books because it hit very close to home and is as if Ally wrote about my own feelings of struggling with my mom’s death.
🚴🏽‍♀️I’ve also been coming to terms with having an Autism Spectrum Disorder (Asperger’s Syndrome). It has affected my entire life, but not to the extent of how Cedar described Ben’s short life. I just connect with books like this because even though my experience may be different, it’s similar and therefore, endearing and somewhat comforting.
🚴🏽‍♀️Anyway, thank you Orem Library for the awesome event! It was a lot of fun to attend and spent time with my friends and listen to the ever talented Miss Ally!
🚴🏽‍♀️PS I took other pictures but my phone crapped out on me and this is the only one that survived. That’s okay, though, because I adore you too, @ally.condie!

Didn’t realize it has almost been 4 years since the last time I had my eyes checked. 😳 Oops. 😂 #blindasabat
Izzy: “I don’t always lounge on the bed, oh wait yes I do and I’m cute while doing it.” #catsofinstagram
The things from #LDSConf that stood out to me enough to post them on social media. There was so much more that I loved, but these were my favorite.
My #fibromyalgia kicked into high gear during the Sunday afternoon session of #LDSConf so I lay in bed listening with little Izzy as my companion. #catsofinstagram

Hi, everyone! To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Dewey's Readathon, we are doing a 30 day event starting today (September 21st). Share your pictures and we will showcase them over the next 30 days. Tags are #readathon and #30daysofreadathon. Look forward to seeing your pictures! Have fun!
This is my third time seeing #Muse. Their concerts are the best. This, however, is the first time Matthew Bellamy came into the crowd. You can see that we were pretty close to him too. Loved it and had so much fun! If you ever get the chance to see them in person I highly recommend it.
🎼Corey and I went to the Muse concert last night. We had awesome seats, except for the 6’8” gigantor in front of me. Luckily, I was able to move over a bit and get a better view.
🎼The opening act was 30 Seconds to Mars. I’ve listened to their songs before without realizing who they were. I especially didn’t know that Jared Leto is their lead singer. He did an awesome job pumping up the crowd for Muse and his performance was fantastic. I ❤️ his voice.
🎼He came into the crowd for part of it and, at one point, Corey could’ve reached out and touched him. It. Was. Amazing!

Last night, I celebrated 10 years with these lovely, awesome ladies (and many more who've moved away or had other obligations and couldn't come celebrate)! Twilight brought us together and I'm so glad it did because my life would be a lot less full and meaningful and definitely more boring without them. I'm so glad they're my friends and they get me. I look forward to another 10 years of fangirling and Supporting Local Talented Authors. #slta #saltlaketwilightersanonymous #bffs #authorappreciation
What better way to spend #readabookday📚 than rereading my all-time favorite book: #Dune.
My oldest (The Goose Girl) and newest (The Chosen One) books by Utah authors in my personal library. #utahbookweek #utahbooks #ubw2017
This stack of books has two things in common. 1) I have read and loved all of them. 2) More importantly, all of these books were written by an author who lives in Utah.
📚Have you read any of these? If so, which one is your favorite?

🥓The last month or so has been really hard for me. My coach challenged me to fast for 24 hours because intermittent fasting goes hand in hand with the #ketodiet. I had never fasted for that long in my life. Not even for Fast Sunday (Mormon thing).
🥓I spiraled out of control because of it. Physically, the fasting wasn't hard, but it took a toll on me emotionally. I started to binge everything in sight and threw keto foods to the curb. I'm embarrassed writing about this, but I'm just keeping it real.
🥓This experience also spiraled me into a depressive low. I don't know about you, but when I'm depressed, I'm not very motivated.
🥓My weight has been yo-yoing between 30 and 39 lbs. lost. I couldn't seem to get to that coveted 40 lbs. lost.
🥓For the past 10 days, I've been trying really hard to do better. I've realized fasting for 24 hours is a trigger so I'm staying far away from that philosophy. I'm still dealing with a depressive low and I'm stressed to all hell (because of life, work, and everything), but I'm doing better. And, as you can see, I finally reached that coveted 40 lbs. lost. 🎉🎉🎉

#tbt to Monday's solar eclipse. This was my favorite picture I took. It was at the maximum point of coverage where I was.
Woot woot! #ubw2017
