Happy Birthday to me!

 I'm 22 now!! Whoooooooa nelly. No messin around anymore. 22 is so much older than 21 I feel like. Time to grow up I guess. :)
Thanks to my wonderful boyfriend whom I love dearly (Joe Stewart), I had an amazing birthday yesterday! In the morning I slept in only to wake up to a fabulous breakfast of whole wheat pancakes made by my mom. After that I went to the BYU devotional with my team and got a bunch of lovely birthday wishes. Thanks girls! Then went and had a very much needed nap. After that, went to practice where there was a whole lot of running...Thank you Shay. :) Best part of the whole day was going to dinner with Joe, watching some Brian Regan, and hittin up the steam room and hot tub at the gym. First time steam room trip. I think it's so awesome! Anyway, overall it was a super chill, but awesome birthday that I was able to spend with my man!

Joe, I know you'll probably read this so this is for you:
I want you to know how much I love and adore you. You put a lot of effort into that day to make it wonderful for me and I want you to know how much that means to me. You are such an incredible person and I thank my Heavenly Father every day for you. Thank you for being the person that you are and making me want to be better. You're amazing. Mush. :)

hello there

I have tried this whole blogging thing once before...but somehow it vanished one day. Probably has something to do with my awesome computer skills. But as they say, "If at first you don't succeed, try try again." Ok I will. 
I feel a bit embarrassed to let others read my blog (apology in advance), because everyone is so dang good at it! Such good writers and creative templates and colors, etc. I used to think I was creative back when I was in elementary school cause my teacher told me all the time that I was. No one tells me anymore so I think it wore off. 
I've become obsessed with stalking other people's blogs this past weekend. We got stuck in Texas because our flight was canceled due to a tornado warning. Laaaaame. So, I've had a lot of time on my hands in the hotel, most of that time has been spent on blogger. 
Now I believe an explanation is in order for my cheesy blog title name. Carpe Diem. Betcha never heard that one before right? When I came on to play volleyball for BYU the seniors gave me the nick name Carpe...because my last name is Carpenter...get it? it's shortened. For the URL thingy just "carpe" wouldn't be allowed so I did Carpe-diem-yo. Diem just flows after Carpe so I decided to just name my whole blog that. There ya go. But I also seize the day too.
