Let me Introduce You....

Well... it's been a long time once again. I feel like i have a lot of explaining and introducing to do on this blog. My life for the past three months have been crazy busy...but probably the funnest three months of my life.

This weekend i have contemplated a lot about how blessed i am. I really enjoy conference weekend for many reasons, and one of them is how blessed i feel to have the gospel in my life, and be able to receive guidance from our inspired leaders. Watching conference has been so refreshing for me. I love that i am a member of the only true church! It means so much to me.

So now... i know you're all waiting. Let me introduce you to someone.....
Bradley James Curtis

he is a nut, but..
isn't he cute?
i love him.
we have been dating for about two months now, and it's been pretty fun two months. Here are some things that we have been up to...

MOAB!! Me and Brad both had a spring break a couple of weeks ago, and we wanted to get away somewhere. We were hoping for some warmth, but unfortunately we didn't get it. It was still way fun! 
We roughed it up camping in a tent, and it was a fun experience. If you ask brad, he won't say that. We went with Brad's friend Trevor, and his girlfriend. The wind was so ridiculous that night, so brad says he slept a total of 14 seconds. I slept like a baby, like always. :) We made tin foil dinners...went hiking, and just kicked it old school. 
you notice our sweet sweatbands? yeah, we're awesome.

I don't have very many pictures of this trip, but it really was fun! 

Listen to right before we headed home, we decided to hike up to this waterfall really quick. So we did, and obviously when we got to the top of the water fall, Bradley was looking off the cliff, dying to jump off. Remember it's like 40 degrees, and we were in our regular clothes, and we didn't know how deep the water really was. I told him he wasn't jumping, but he was just sitting on the edge, dangling his feet ready to jump. There was this other dad and little boy that were at the waterfall too, and Brad told the little boy if he jumped off, then he would jump off too. I just walked away because i knew that at this point whatever i said wouldn't make a difference. This little boy jumped from a lower ledge, and then there you have it....brad does a back flip off this waterfall. It freaked me out, but it was pretty funny. Thats Bradley for you. 

Me and Bradley got one of those 'pass of all passes' this year, aka 'funland passes'. We have been so excited about them. Yesterday we had our first adventure to Funland. We went with Chris and Heather (brad's brother and sister in law), and Heather and Kenny (brad's sister and boyfriend). It was super fun. We went lazer tagging twice, and did a little mini golf. 
 All of us...minus Heather cause she was taking the picture

This weekend has just been great! 

Reasons why i love Bradley
1. Unlike most guys, he has his priorities straight.
2. He works hard for what he wants.
3. He's smarter than crap.
4. He is very thoughtful, and always does things to let me know he is thinking about me, or that he cares about me.
4. He has a little boy side of him. I love this MOST of the time. (not all the time)
5. He is patient with me. :)
6. He loves his family...and his family loves him.
7. He's not afraid to tell me i'm being ridiculous.(aka dramatic, or a brat)
8. He helps me with my homework. :)
9. He makes everything FUN!
10. Most importantly, he is good, worthy priesthood holder that dedicates himself to everything. I know he has a testimony, because of the way he treats everyone around him.

Something else that has happened to me this past month, is that i found out i did not get into Dental Hygiene school this year. I am obviously a little bummed out, but i really know that this is the way it was supposed to work out right now. I am optimistic that the Lord has other purposes that he will use me for this year. I am just finding it a little difficult to know his will, and know how i can serve him best. I know everything will work out how it is supposed to, and in 10 years i will laugh that i was even worried about it. It's funny how the Lord works.

Life is good. I have nothing to complain about. 
until next time...see ya later. 


  1. Lindsey I'm freaking out! For you to blog about Brad means this is serious...which means I'm on my way to downtown Chicago and I'm going to be looking for shoes for you. You know...the white flat ones that you will only wear once...the ones I told you to be looking for a long time ago...the ones that you didn't think you would ever need!!!

    So happy that you are happy. I love you!

  2. You must really like him a lot because you said 11 reasons you love him, not just 10 :) And I'm glad you think he is smarter than crap- that is quite the accomplishment. Ha. He truly is a smartie pants. Especially because he is smart enough to date such an awesome girl. We are so glad he is dating you- it has been a blast getting to know you and having you around at the family activities. We'll have to do laser tag again soon or anything else- we LOVE to spend time with you both! Come visit soon!

  3. So nice to meet you, Brad! You must be awesome because Lindsey is amazing!!!

  4. Lindsey!
    1. You are beautiful. I miss you and wish you were here with your Mom right now!
    2. Wow--this is serious! :) Brad seems so great and I love that he makes you so happy. We can't wait to meet him!
    3. Can't WAIT to see you next month!! And neither can the other members of your fan club here. You will always be their favorite aunt.
    Love you!
