Clay Aiken

If you know me you know that I LOVE Mr. Clay Aiken. (yes people I have known since 6th grade, I still love him.) I have seen him in concert 8 times and loved every single time! This March my Dad took me to San Fran. to see this beautiful man perform.
It was a blast! I even waited after the concert to have him sign my ticket.
The first picture you can see my head right next to Clay Aiken! Secretly I almost passed out/cried at this point. Next you see my ticket with Clay Aiken's signature!
Anyway, today I have been on a Clay High and have been listening to him all day long. Well in my internet searching of Clay tonight I found a new song released to his fans for Christmas!! Woohoo!! I love Christmas!!! I love it and have listened to this song over and over again, so I am sharing it here, if you want to listen enjoy. If not you still should because it's gorgeous!

21 Years of Life

So I'm copying my dearest friend Melissa John. She recently had a birthday and posted things about the past year of her life. My birthday was yesterday and I am going to tell you 21 things about the last year in my life.

1. I can't live without blankets, I have known this all my life but in the past year, not being able to control the heat/air in my house I learned how dear blankets are to me. I happen to have one large tote and one small tote of blankets.

2. I HATE moving, in the last year I helped move my mom(into a third story condo mind you) and Tommy and I moved into his parents house.

3. It is almost impossible to watch an episode of Grey's Anatomy without crying.

4. Having a clean car, and i mean extremely clean, is like a new awakening in life. Super Sonic Car Wash in Orem is a gift from heaven.

5. Dream perfume from Gap will always be my favorite sent no matter how hard I try to find a new scent.

6. My brother Bridger is a stud, he doesn't realize it but he teaches me so much and I completely look up to him.

7. I am no where near being ready to be a mom. Sure I love babysitting and being around kids but 24/7? No way!

8. I love being an Activity Day leader. My girls are so cute and I love being an example to those girls. I also get to come up with fun crafts for them :)

9. Dr. Aznar, my Chiropractor saves my life, literally, if I miss appointments with him I can't get out of bed, especially now that I work at Xpedx and am lifting a lot.

10. I miss PGHS Chamber Choir so so so much! I wish I could just go back to that class!

11. Waking up at 7 in the morning for work, KILLS ME. I am so not a morning person.

12. I have come to appreciate the art work that goes into video games. I have watched my husband play many video games and when the game is made great it can actually be fun to watch.

13. Disneyland is the best thing to be able to look forward to!

14. I am addicted to way to many TV shows
*Grey's Anatomy
*New Girl
*The Office
*Teen Mom
and now thanks to my mother-in-law
*Once Upon a Time

15. I love seeing my friends get married and seeing how happy they are! I have a lot going through that stage of life right now.

16. As much as you love a place you work at if it is causing harm to your body it's not worth it. Even if it's hard to leave.

17. Families are so important. You have to love everyone no matter what and you can't get through life with out them.

18. My sisters and I could totally be caterers for real.

19. I learned I can pull off a pixie cut but I'm ready to go back to my classic bob.

20. My fashion sense is better and I'm branching out in my styles.

21. A year and 3 months ago I made the best decision I could have ever made and married my best friend and the perfect man for me!! He is so good to me and spoiled me on the 21st birthday by getting me my very own kitchen-aid mixer!!

I am blessed to be who I am and to have the family and friends that I do! Thanks to everyone that has been a part of my life, through all the good and bad moments!

So this week and next week Tommy and I are living at Brad and Ashley's house (bro/sis-in-law) and we are watching Magnum while they are on a cruise. Lucky them I know! Anyway, last night Mags and I were driving to get dinner and we were coming up on the temple so I asked mags if he knew who went to the temple. The first thing that came out of his mouth, very enthusiastically, was me! He said it like it was a "duh Sophie" answer. It made me smile and think of how much of an example my 3 year old nephew was being to me with out even knowing! I feel like this needs to be my attitude about tending the temple and that I need to get myself to the temple more often. I am truly grateful for the temple and the blessings it provides for my little family. I love that Tommy and I were married in the temple for time and all eternity!! The church is so true and I am thankful for my little Magnum and his amazing spirit!

Growing Up

Today I am feeling grown up/old. It used to be that on conference Saturday we would all be up on time because my mom wouldn't let us sleep to late to miss the session and then we would either have conference blasting while we cleaned the house or while we were doing yard work.

Today I got up at 8:45 and then started working on stuff for our Relief Society activity in October (which will be awesome) because I am on the committee and have quite a few assignments for this activity. After working on that for about an hour and deciding that maybe I will go do the rest of one of my assignments in between sessions while probably picking up lunch for me and my hubby, I am looking at blogs and pinterest just waiting for conference to start. I feel grown up today.

I also need to clean my house today but I don't really want to because it's the stuff that I don't really like. I need to do one more load of laundry and fold/put away three loads of laundry, mop my floors, and clean my bathroom, and put away my clean dishes. Tommy also just pointed out that there isn't really anything I like cleaning.

My couch is probably the most uncomfortable couch ever. It does however fit perfectly in my small house. I have been thinking about finding a new couch so I have been looking on KSL (you honestly can find just about anything on there) and I have found a couple of couches that I really like but I'm not sure if they will fit my house. I can actually think about getting a new couch if I find it for the right price because on Thursday my sister Libby and I are catering a wedding so there will be a little extra money in the bank. Oh decisions decisions.

I obviously haven't written in a long time hence the long post.

It's getting to be my favorite time of year. FALL. I love it for several reasons.
1: My BIRTHDAY (November 13)
2: We get ready for Festival of Trees
3: the colors of the season
4: Conference
5: Pumpkin flavored stuff
6: It reminds me of my Grandpa Jay
7: so much family time
there are more but I can't think of them right now.

Tommy is going into Optometry for his profession. In the past week we have been talking about our future in terms of his schooling. He has 2 1/2 years left at BYU and then we will have to move out of state for grad school. Our parents are not to excited about this. This week we found out that there are only 20 Optometry schools in the United States. The closest to Utah is in Arizona then California and the only other one on the west coast is Oregon. I am hoping we can go back east because it is beautiful back there and we have my amazing Aunt and Uncle Holly and Josh and their fun kids, and maybe even Kira and Tony and their fun kids will still be back there. (I know Wendy you are saying no no no :)). I know that 2 1/2 years is a long time but it still is crazy and makes me feel old and grown up.

Okay I think this post is long enough :)

sing like no one is listening

I don't know if you know this but I sing and I like it a lot. I used to sing all the time and was pretty good but then I graduated high school and then dropped out of college so I haven't truly sung in a long time. Then I was asked to be a memeber of the enrichment board in my ward to be in charge of the music. May was the first month I was helping with the activity and needed a fun muical number to go with our girls night theme. I decided it would be fun if I sang with my little sister Maddie. Let me tell you this friends, if you haven't heard her sing you are MISSING OUT!! She is seriously incredible!!! Anyway we sang through a bunch of broadway duets for girls and decided to sing "Some Things are Meant to Be" from Little Wemon. This was a fun song to sing because it has some fun lyrics. If you haven't heard it you should go look it up on you tube. It was so fun practicing it with Maddie in her room even though we ended up just laughing through it most of the times. I am really thankful I had that fun opportunity to sing with her even though once we were about to sing we looked at each other and said I'm going to puke! (from the nerves of course). Well friends I think that is about it for today, I will try to be better and post more often, thanks for reading!

Loves! Sophie

I now work at Xpedx paper store in orem, and I love it so much!!! This week is my third week there and it's great. There are a total of 6 people that work at the store so I already know everyone which is awesome! We have so many cute fun things it's actually kind of dangerous because I see things I want everyday especially when we get shipments in! I have already bought some stuff there, a super cute planner that is very helpful and I also got wrapping paper that is very cute it's a kraft paper that has green and brown leafs and stuff I super love it, I also bought a spool of brown tool to do bows for gifts because lets be honest it's much cuter and easier! If you want some cute stuff come in and visit me :)

Day 5

What is my definition of love? I think sometimes we think of love as some big complicated thing. It may be to some people but to me it is simple. It is losing yourself in someone and trusting them to always be there. It's finding happiness even when days are long and hard. The thought that comes to mind is a quote from one of my favorite movies the wedding planner....
"Love is just Love".

What I Ate Today

I have been sick lately and now Tommy is getting it so today we are home on our couch. So what I ate is interesting. When I woke up I started watching some Buffy and ate some of the really yummy flavored Fritos, then I ate some grapes and had some Orange Juice. Then for lunch I made us Chicken Fried Rice. It was quite delicious might I add :)We then had my favorite pizza for dinner, Hawaiian :) all in all a good food day :)

p.s. I wrote this on the right day I just forgot to post it haha I blame the sickness

Day 3-My parentals

My parents aren't like any other! I love them both and they are dear to me :)
My dad's name is Boyd C. Hall and he has been a great dad. One of my favorite memories with my dad is ironically from a funeral. We sung Amazing Grace together while my mom played the piano. Singing together is one of my favorite memores with my dad. Even though I'm all married now he still watches out and takes care of me. This last weeking I was sick and my dad brought over a giant pot of homemade chicken noodle soup and rolls. He also brought me medicine and checked up wtih me almost everyday after to make sure I was getting better :) We have had our hard times but I will still and always love him!

My mom's name is Debra Batty Hall. She is my hero. She is strong when she doesn't think she is and she is a light to all those around her. My mom taught me the gosple and also how to always love it even when it's hard. She taught me who I am today and also taught me how important it is to forgive. She is a fabulous friend, an amazing musician, and a leader. One of my favorite moments with my mom is when we spent time together writing music. My mom and I have written two songs together. The time we spent together working on something we both loved was something I will love for the rest of my life. We learned about each other and developed our love of music together.
