Tell me there’s a themed dance somewhere, I’ll always dress for the theme...20s New Years party last night and, of course, I was one of the only people dressed up...so naturally I just felt stupid...but I’m learning to embrace my dorky self because this is who I am! Haha haven’t seen my hair this short since I was 9...but It was really fun to do! #imsuchadork #20s #annabates #didntmeantolooklikeadowntonabbeymaid #stupidnecklace #lameysa
I think checked boarders are my favorite. Didn’t post this last night because my back with killing me and I was tired! Haha #lifeofaquilter but I’m finishing this beauty today!! Yay! Final reveal of the quilt won’t be until Christmas-ish. But stay tuned!!! #quilting #sewing #flannelshirts #memoryquilt
Oh what a journey this has been! 13.1 miles and 20 lbs later I am so dead but I’m glad I could accomplish such a huge thing! Anyone who knows me knows that I don’t have an athletic bone in my body (it all went to Mitch and Lexi) so I’m proud of myself for doing this!! And these were my fastest times according to my clock. Because the other one sucks. Thanks to my support team and especially to my Aunt Judi who helped me through the whole thing. She is amazing and I can’t express enough gratitude to her! Now for the next running adventure! #icantmove @judiakagreenfairy #snowcanyonhalf #ididit #mostbeautifulrun
Well here it is...this is what I’ve been working on for the last few weeks and man it’s been fun!! I’m the Evil Queen from the show Once Upon A Time. The material for this getup was actually a perfect find. My skirt and collar are faux leather (that was quite the ordeal) and the rest is just a satin. Oh and I even had to dye lace for the bottom of the skirt. Swipe over to see my hair and makeup up close. And yes I did everything by myself. #ilovewhatido #seamstress #seeing #ouat #evilqueenregina
This was the best way to kick off my birthday week! I love this girl so much and I’m so sad she has to leave me so soon! I’m so glad we got to go on our temple walk and talk about boys and life and everything in between! We are total dorks and that’s ok because life is way to short to be normal! @_emily__joy_ #bestfriends #dontleaveme #okyoucanbutjustcomebacksoon
Ending this weekend with a temple walk and boy, did I need it! I love this weekend but I also hate this weekend. I love being about to watch and listen to modern day prophets. I love the counsel they give to us. And love how it's over a two day period and not just crammed in one day. I love the peace I feel afterwards but then hate it because I really need to work on a lot to better myself. I hate when it's over and that I have to wait six months until the next one.
I love conference weekend so much and I can't wait until the next one! #ldsconf #stgeorgetemple #backtoreality
So I'm kind of embarrassed to even post about this because I'm not quite where I want to be...but I don't care.
I ran 5 miles under an hour! This is a huge accomplishment for me because I'm kind of a quiter. I did stop for a minute to talk with my mother but I got to look at this view and it was totally worth it.
Slide over to see my mile time...i don't know why my second mile is always my slowest...and just ignore mile 5. I was tired

Started training for a #halfmarathon this week. I have no idea what I'm getting myself into. But to be honest, I love it already! Don't know how I'm going to run 13 miles but I know I can do it!
Sunrise this morning while on my run. This totally makes it worth it

This quilt has been sitting in my closet for over 2 years now. @judiakagreenfairy finished quilting it today and so I finally got to finish it! I absolutely love this quilt and it's so fun to have it up on my wall so I can enjoy it #judimadsen #irishlass #quiltingwithwideopenspaces @modafabrics #3sisters #whitewashcottage #quilting #sewing #modafabrics
So this last week, I've finished 3 projects and I'm feeling like a million bucks! I haven't felt like this in a long time and I'm loving it! So I figured I would treat myself. I've had this fabric stashed away for quite some time and I've also been meaning to make this skirt. I found this 1953 skirt patter for a really good price and those of you who know me know that this is totally my style! I can't wait to make it a share it! #quilting #finishedmyfirstpattern #seamstress #sewing #feelingaccomplished #treatyoself
I'm saying goodbye to my best friend tomorrow for 2 years. It's been a roller coaster of emotion all this weekend. I love this brother of mine and I will miss him dearly...but it doesn't matter because I know the Lord needs him in Argentina more than I need him here. All five of us got to be in the temple this morning and how special that was. I will treasure that memory always. #best2years #argentinabound #family #nowbacktoreality
It's pretty fun when your aunt get another quilting machine and needs to practice! My summer table runner is finally finished! And I love it so much! Thank you @judiakagreenfairy your my favorite aunt (but don't tell anyone) #justkiddingallmyauntsaremyfavorite #sewkindofwonderful #qcr #modstrawberries #pineapple @sewkindofwonderful
Had so much fun this weekend. I could not have asked for a better one. Between seeing the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Alex Boye in concert, having my sister kick my butt on a morning run and listening to my brother give his farewell talk, I say its been splendid. Can't wait for round two next weekend! #madeitallweekendwithoutcrying #family #thereweresevengirlsattheconcert
I've posted this picture so many times but I love it! Love you Dad! And Happy Father's day! I'm really missing my family right now. So being away from home is hard. But I will see all my cute family hopefully in the next few weeks. @amymeems11 #hinthint #family #fathersday #ignorethatstupidcircle
