happy mothers day!

today was a beautiful day!! i went to church and rachel gave an AMAZING talk. then, i went to my aunts ward because i love her and it was ben's homecoming. and then we went to the park!! it was so much fun. aunt tina and uncle greg are some of my favorite people in the entire world. and i can't forget about mccall and peipei because they could be my sisters. i love their family SO much!! even mimzi was there! we played frisbee- peipei and greg were by far the best! we ate KFC... (shhh...don't tell) and just basked in the sun! being with their family always makes me so happy. i love them.

anyways, its mothers day i absolutely adore my mother. she does so much for me and without her i know i wouldn't be the person that i am today. i love that i'm so close to my mom. she's honestly one of my best friends. i know i can tell her anything and i love talking to her on the phone every single day :) i don't know many people who can do that and i feel so blessed that i can!!

here is a poem i wrote for my mom once upon a time:

My mother has never developed a new drug to cure any disease,
But she is the one I turn to when I am sick, for love and support.

My mother has not given any speeches that have been published,
But she has shared her thoughts and listened to me nearly every night as we talk before I go to bed.

My mom does not get a pay check or bonus for all the work she does,
But we all agree she has the toughest job.

My mom has never gotten any major music awards,
But she wants me to learn to appreciate its beauty.

My mom has never taken any proffesional driving courses
But she is always willing to drive me anywhere.

My mom has never been a great stage entertainer
But she can juggle a lot of things at the same time without going crazy

My mom can get mad at some of the things I do
But she is the first to reach out to me again

My mom is pretty tough at times
But she is the first one I can share a tear with when I need too

My mom just smiles when my dad bugs me by asking how many Danielle Magleby’s there are in the world like me
But she is the first to say just one

My mom isnt perfect
But she makes me want to do better and choose the right

My mom would be the first to say that she is a daughter of god
And now she has taught me.

i love my mom!!

cupcake catastrophe

so i went in to the Sweet Tooth Fairy to talk to the manager a couple days ago

here are the highlights

he asks me to frost a cupcake...i don't know how exactly to do this in their method and he shows me once so i try. FAIL.

him: do you have any experience with cake decorating?
me: no, but i used to write names on cakes at dairy queen
him: with what?!
me: frosting
him: and your cupcake looks like that?!

him: customer service is really important
me: i used to work at hollister- its not on my resume because i worked there five years ago but our main responsibility was to help customers and give good service
him: you shouldn't have said that... i hate hollister. its not on your resume because you were embarrased. as you should be.
me: uhhhh...

he tells me to frost another cupcake. i do and i think its decent.

we talk some more...
him: well, you're taking those cupcakes with you whether you like it or not.

interview over.
i peace out with the cupcakes
sweet, huh?!

lazy saturdays

i think that every person should be entitled to lazy saturdays.

it was rainy and gloomy and really the only thing i want to do on days like this is cuddle up with my comfy blanket, get my jams on, eat junky food, and watch movies. steph was with me and we were literally on the couch for four hours.

pure bliss.
