Something About Love

Oh do I love David Archuleta. He's one of those singers whose songs just make you happy, uplifted and hopeful. I was having one of those rougher days today, and David Archuleta's new song "Something 'Bout Love" came on shuffle on my iTunes & it got me thinking about love. I'm very unlucky in love, but I know that one day I'll find what is right for me and I know that when I do I will truly be happy. With what is happening now in life it is important for us to make the right decisions because it will have an impact on our future. But right now it is not important, for me personally, to desire that love and attention I one day wish to have. David helped me realize that today when I was feeling down. The Lord loves us, he truly does. As long as we turn to Him and put our trust in Him, He will provide the way for us to be truly happy. So, thank you David Archuleta for helping me realize that in time of need :)

Oh, & I wish for you to come in concert soon :)

Love, Erin

Do You Think We Could Be Potential Models? :)

My sister Alicia took the three of us out to take vintage pictures today! It was so much fun & the pictures turned out great! Those are just some that I edited myself. It was a lot of fun, we had a great time modeling for Alicia's photography business! Hopefully we can do it again soon!

There is so much that I am thankful for. Family, friends, everything I have.

Right now, there are a few things I've specifically thankful for:

My niece Alexa: She is the absolute most beautiful person in my life. I know that she is going to teach me so much in the future and I'm so grateful for that sweet spirit who cheers me up when I feel so alone, just by her happy smile, laugh, or babbling. I love this little girl more than anything.

My Bestest Friend Of ALL Time: Seren: Seren and I have been best friends since we were 3 years old. She's never let me down, and I've done my best to do the same for her. Seren just left on Heritage Tours for the next three weeks, and I'll never be more grateful for her love and example to me. She is always striving so hard to be better and always willing to help those in need. Especially her friends. I'm scared of separating for college with her, I HONESTLY DON'T KNOW WHAT I'LL DO WITHOUT HER. But I know that since our friendship has lasted through all that it has, I have a good feeling that it will last through our separate college lives. Seren is my life long friend, basically a sister. We've always said 'Best Friends Forever' and it will always be true. I hope she has fun on Heritage Tours, I love her and will miss her until she comes home.

and.. Lexie is my truest love :):) I really love & appreciate her for everything. She is an amazing person, and we like to laugh too!! :) But, she's not going away. She's right next door.. but I still miss her!

they bully me & hate me. . but i LOVE them. we're best friends :)

and last but not least ..

The Woman Who Gave Me Life: My Mother: My mom is on a new diet right now and she is striving and struggling to keep to it. I know she can do it & she'll make it through it! I admire my mom for her willingness and perseverance through all the bad things. She is such a great example to me. I'm not always the daughter that I should be to her, but I am working on doing better and strengthening our relationship. I have the best mom in the entire world; She listens to me, She cares for my feelings and needs, and she loves me. No matter what I'm feeling I always know that my parents love me. Or else they wouldn't care, they wouldn't act. I've always been the person who feels alone, and lives in a world of loneliness. But with my family, I know that I'm not alone. My family is all that matters. My mom is at the top of the list, she is amazing & I know she'll make it through this new diet and change the habits she wants to.

and since its the 4th of July weekend.. I'm grateful for my freedoms. It is such a blessing to live in a free country, and it would be hard to live without freedom.

Backstreet Boys!

So last Wednesday me, my sister, and two cousins Kenzie & Maddie went to the Backstreet Boys concert at Energy Solutions Arena! We made t-shirts with the boys on the back and each of us had a boy on the front, they were super sweet.I've been to a lot of concerts but this was by far the best concert I've EVER been to! We had a total blast!

We have loved the Backstreet Boys ever since we were little girls! We've waited and waited for the day we could go to a BSB concert. And we finally got to live up that chance! And it was amazing! I'm so glad we got floor seats & just that we got to go at all! It was thee best concert EVER!! AAHHH! i love the backstreet boys forever:)

20 Things About Me

Here are twenty random facts you may or may not know about me:

20. I am the only child in my family who wasn't named after someone. My dad said that is what should make me "unique"

19. I've never broken a bone or had stitches.

18. I love kids & I love working with kids. Teaching preschool is something I am passionate about.

17. I am really into old, antique looks and things.

16. I've only been kissed by one person.

15. I was on the Drill Team in high school and loved it. I am very passionate about dance.

14. I have thee junkiest car. It barely runs and is literally hanging on a thread but I get by with what I have.

13. I love being barefoot. I like it when my feet feel free, not like they're trapped. Wearing socks to bed? ABSOLUTELY can't do it.

12. While I love being barefoot, I absolutely love shoes and I really love fashion design.

11. Someday I would like to own my very own boutique. It is something I would really love and enjoy.

10. When I do my laundry, I have to wash ALL of it, even if it is already clean.

9. I had major confidence issues in jr. high. But I've overcome those issues 100%. I know who I am and I'm proud of the person I am and the person I hope to be someday.

8. My last name is Elhart, so when you write it out you can put L and draw a heart! It's soo cool I love it :)

7. I've surprisingly met a lot of famous people, including: V Factory, Carmen Rassmussen, American Idol Season 7 Top 10: Brooke White, Carly Smithson, Jason Castro, Kristy Lee Cook, Michael Johns, Ramiele Malubay, Syesha Mercado, and David Archuleta :) I've also met the Jonas Brothers. Which all of these people have been really really cool to meet, but Jonas Brothers was the coolest thing ever!

6. I'm not a morning person, and I'm really not a breakfast eater. Typically I never eat breakfast. But I could eat a bowl of cold cereal with every meal.

5. Next summer me and my cousin are going to move into an apartment together! I'm so excited I can't wait!!

4. Right now I'm working at a small snow shack. Its kinda lame, I know. I'm really pushing for a job being an aide at a daycare or preschool. I'm pushing for it more than I can breathe. I really really desperately want and need a job at a preschool. The shack is fun, but I for sure need a more serious job.

3. I'm excited to pursue my career in child development/teaching. Maybe one day I'll teach grade school, I guess we'll see where all of it takes me!

2. I'm scared of not knowing what is ahead. I'm scared that I don't know who I will marry, or when I'll get married. I'm scared of going to college by myself and being out on my own. I'm scared of losing the friends I have and moving out and not living at the place I call home anymore. I'm scared for so many things on the road up ahead. But I'm ready to get ready and I'm ready to not be scared anymore. I'm ready to take my first step with courage and prepare for all the steps that follow.

1. I dream of everything a girl my age should. Dating, and finding my own prince charming, the man of my dreams. The man that will take me to the temple and marry me. I dream of everlasting and eternal love, happiness, a family of my own. Although these things are down the road for me, I am excited for what is to come and I'll know when I'm ready to face that big and important step. So for now, I dream of success. I dream of enjoying the time I can spend with children, the time I can spend dancing my heart out, the time I can spend putting together outfits, and making purses and jewelry and the time I can spend meeting famous people :) I dream everyday of what it takes to make myself happy. But then I realize every single day that I am happy, no matter what I may face tomorrow.

Reading & Writing, just makes me feel . . free.

I feel as if there are so many endless possibilities & I absolutely love it.

So any ideas for good books, let me hear them because I need to read & read & read..

graduation lately i've been thinking a lot about my life. where i see myself in the next 5 years and where i see myself now. graduating high school has given me so many things to think about. you realize that after that huge step, its time to make grown up decisions that will effect you for the rest of your life. while the thought is frightening, i find it overwhelming and relieving. i've been waiting for the day where i could be independent and be on my own for as long as i can remember. now, it is all a fantasy. because in the real world: LIFE IS HARD. trying to live on change from your wallet can be stressful. and lately i've been thinking back on the things in my life that i need to focus more on and the things i treasure more than the money i work so hard to earn.

i don't think i'll ever be so appreciative of my family. my mom and dad have given so much to me, and it hurts me to know how much of that i took for granted during my teenage years. i don't think i'd be able to function if i didn't have the family that i have. my parents influence so many of my decisions and their strong words of encouragement push me day to day and i have more comfort of what is to come in the future because of my parents love and support.

career the last two months of high school i realized how much i needed to make a decision on my career and what i wanted to do in college and for the rest of my life. i was inconsistent and indecisive and couldn't make up my mind. i was going through dance major to dance education to early childhood education and being a teacher. after so much thought and consideration i have finally decided that i am going into early childhood education and going to UVU to get my one year certificate so that i can be a preschool teacher. i am stoked about my decision and can't wait to start school and go forward with my future in teaching.

love there are a lot of things i could say about the word LOVE it means all kinds of things. but i've been thinking a lot about what it really means. i won't deny that i'm excited to someday get married to the man of my dreams. i know there is a difference between being excited and being ready. my sister got married when she was 18 and so did my mom and my grandma. i always knew that it was impossible for me to be married so young. i've always said that i am too "immature". now i've realized something. its not that i'm immature, i'm just not yet ready. which is fine. marriage is a huge step in life and i'm only 18! i have so much time to live! but i am excited for that part of my life and i know that it will be good for me.

as for now...

right now i'm working at a small snow shack on main street. while working there, i'm also looking for a second job so i can make money to go to school. so for now, i'm going to enjoy a relaxed and carefree summer of work :) and i'm going to make the most of what i have. i'm excited for what is ahead and i'm ready to put all the bad behind me. i feel like starting out fresh and i'm ready for college life and move out into my own apartment.

.Mixed Feelings.

have you ever fell for someone.. and fell HARD? but has that person you've fallen so hard for not even noticed..? and not to mention he has someone else? its confusing. i'm starting to feel all these crazy feelings that i've never felt before about someone i know. and .. i am starting to see things in a different way. i'm not so sure what to really do about it. i'm trying to figure it out, and i'm trying to figure out who i am cause i'm at the point in my life where i don't know. and things are changing, high school is coming to an end. i feel like i really need to take the time for myself to figure out who i really am. i always thought i knew, but lately i'm not so sure. i'm just at the point in my life where i am really starting my life and future and i'm doing my best with facing that reality. i just wish i knew what to do with all these new feelings.. because he's all i can think about. i just wish i knew what will come out of it all. but i know that i need to be patient and have a little faith and no matter what things will turn out for the best. things will turn out the way they are supposed to be, but i can always have a little bit of hope he will be a part of it (:

i can honestly say i'm happy to be alive (:

i love my family, & i love my best friends seren and lexie. they really help me through everything. without them all i'd be so lost. and.. i love my baby girl! my niece alexa gets cuter everyday!

life is just .. beautiful.

love, erin

She's finally here! I'm officially an aunt! She is so beautiful! 7 pounds, 10 ounces.. 18 1/2 inches. She is the most beautiful baby! I'm so glad that she's here, and that she made it okay!

I am so blessed to have this sweet spirit enter my life, and my family is so excited that she's joining us! Its still so crazy that my sister had a baby.

Dance and Drill consumed my life this month. Practice at 6 every morning and stayed after school until 6 everyday for 2 weeks. Dance Concert was a blast. First competition. We took 5th place in our Kick routine out of 9 schools. It was the best thing ever to take an actual award home. It has never happened. We are working our way up for sure. Mom had some medical problems on Christmas Eve, but we pulled through it. Christmas Break and Christmas were amazing. UVU dance on New Years Eve was a blast.

This year really was a good one and I am so grateful to everyone in my life, no matter who it is or what they've done for me, i love them all. I'm so thankful to have all these great memories.

I know 2010 will be just as great. It is going to be a year of big big changes. Turning 18, Graduating and starting College. It is going to be a good year and I can't wait to see what will happen. Thank you to everyone who has and will always stand by my side. I love you. Happy New Year!
