Sunshine Award!

I just got nominated for the Sunshine Award by Eggs With Ketchup (! I'm flattered! Here are the rules of the game:
1. Acknowledge the person who gave this award in a blog post.
2. Do the Q&A below.
3. Pass on the Award to 10 deserving and inspiring bloggers, inform them and link to their blogs.

1. Who is your favorite philosopher? 
Um. Good question. Does Anne Frank count? Her quote, "Look at all the beauty still around you, and be happy" has become my life motto. I think that was very philosophical of her. 
2. What is your favorite number?
126. Or any variation of that. I was born on January 26. My sport numbers have been 1 or 2 throughout High School. I just like them, K?
3. What is your favorite animal?
I have a general love for all animals but if I had to pick one I couldn't. haha 

4. What is your favorite time of day?
Random question but alright. I like afternoons. But I also like mornings on occasion. Sometimes I am forced to wake up early and I hate it while in my bed but once I'm up and about I love it. 
5. What are your Facebook and Twitter?
Here is my Facebook and here is my Twitter. Stalk away!

6. What is your favorite Holiday?
Christmas Eve. I anticipate that holiday party all year man. All year! I live for our production of the Nativity! 
7. What is your favorite physical activity?
Um how can I narrow it down? I obviously love lacrosse. But I'm pretty much down for any physical activity ever. I love the classic Gym Class games (hens my major choice). I love sports. Everything active. Yay. 

8. What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink?

9. What is your passion?
Um. That's a little personal isn't it? Just kidding. I'm not sure if I know that yet? 
10. What is your favorite flower?

Now here are the 10 blogs I am nominating!

Falling into Place

Last month an announcement was made that caused me to rethink my life plan. After this announcement I've been trying to figure out what my new plan should be. It has turned out to be a plan I've been dreaming about for a long time but just didn't really realize it. Is that even possible? I guess so because that's what's happened.

It's amazing to me how everything little thing in my life has been taken care of. Things were all up in the air for a while and now they are falling into place. I am so grateful for a God who has a plan for me and has provided me with ways to achieve and follow that plan. I am so grateful for an older brother who has made it possible for me to become all that my Heavenly Father knows I can become. Without my Savior I would not be where I am today and I would not have the ability to reach my full potential. I am amazed everyday how involved my Savior and my Heavenly Father are in my life. 

Now that was all very cryptic and vague. But here are my tentative plans for my life:

Stay at BYU for Winter Semester, go home for Spring and get my Mission Papers ready and hopefully sent in and receive my call in May, go to AFRICA with Help International to serve the people in Uganda, and then serve my Lord on a full-time mission in September.  

AHHHHH!!! HOW INCREDIBLY EXCITING AND AMAZING IS THAT PLAN?! I keep asking myself, "is this real life?" It seems like I have a 2 years of service to look forward to and I am so excited! Now this plan is tentative but it feels so right right now and I am scared but mostly so excited that I can't think about anything else. GOD IS SO GOOD.
