Happy weekend! :)

We had a super fun weekend! We started it off by going to the Air Force Academy graduation. One of our cadets graduated! We have sponsored him since he was a freshman. Sponsoring a cadet means they hang out at your house whenever they can escape from the academy. Bryan has been like a brother to me the past four years. He is so much fun. J Graduation was really fun. We were getting a nice tan whilst playing go fish. A bunch of his family was in town, and they were so much fun to have around. Then a couple days later, we went to Bryan's wedding! He married one of my favorite people, my amazing and beautiful friend Mandy. (By the way, I was the one that set them up last year. Boom baby.) Their wedding was incredibly happy, as was their reception. Their reception was absolutely beautiful! I am so happy for both of them. One of my very best friends in the whole wide world had her baby the next day! He is the cutest little guy ever. I love him already! My family went to the Denver zoo on Memorial Day. It was a blast! I love the zoo. J We had a lot of fun taking pictures of the animals and eating a TON of cotton candy. I love my family!! I am super stoked for this next weekend, because one of my best friends from school is coming here! And then we’re going to play in the mountains and get paid for it. Woot woot!! Happy quote of the day: When I was in grade school, they told me to write down what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy. They told me I didn't understand the assignment, I told them they didn't understand life.” –Unknown  I love this quote! J I want to be happy when I grow up too. J
Thunderbird from graduation!

Cutest couple ever. :)

Mission (almost) accomplished!

Hello friends! Slash, my mom, who might be one of the few that read my last post. :) I've spent the day just cleaning my room. An overwhelming task, I might add. I got back from school a month ago, and I still have suitcases in my room. And just random stuff from school everywhere. But after a day of hard work, you can see most of my carpet! Enough that I can dance around my room now. Success. :) I realized some funny things about myself while I was cleaning, which I thought I would share. I need a break from productivity anyways. :)
1. I am incredibly in love with corduroy pants. I found a pair of cords basically every earth tone color imaginable. Most of which don't fit anymore, thanks to that lovely freshman 15. So I stacked them all in my closet, determined to be able to fit in them comfortably again by the end of summer!
2. I had so much fun freshman year! For example, I have a frame with room for 4 pictures. I knew one picture that had to go in, a picture of me and Jayna! It's an adorable picture. I was going to fill the rest of the frame with pictures from freshman year, but I couldn't. I could not pick just 3 pictures out of all those memories! What a wonderful problem to have. :)
3. I love to eat candy at church. My scripture bag was full of candy wrappers and handouts. :) Threw the wrappers away, but kept the handouts! My church bag is significantly lighter now. Sweet! Literally. :)
4. Apparently I am subconsciously worried about starving to death. I found snacks stuck in every bag I unpacked. In multiple pockets and everything. :) I hid them all, to save them for next year. Which is when I really might starve to death, since I have to cook for myself for the first time! :)
Random pretty flower from the Denver temple :)
Here's to a much cleaner room! Woot woot! I have had a very exciting weekend, including the adventures that took place in my room today. Maybe I will blog about them all tomorrow. :) Hope you are having a fantastically beautiful day today!! :)

First is the Worst! ...hopefully at least. :)

Hello to whoever is brave enough to read this! I'm Hannah! :) I have to learn how to blog for my major, elementary ed. Who knows quite why, but I think the best way to learn is just to blog. So, here I am. :) I have no idea what else to say. Hmm. I named my blog "Smile While It Rains" because I believe in being happy! Having a positive attitude can make anything better. I am kinda naively optimistic sometimes. I will create a silly explanation for an unfortunate situation. For example, we discovered a cute little nest with four robin eggs in our front yard. We kept an eye on them, and then a couple days later my dad said they were gone. He said a fox or big bird must have gotten to them. I am still sure that they just hatched and took their shells with them. :) My all time favorite scripture is Doctrine and Covenants 123:17. "Therefore, dearly beloved brethren, let us cheerfully  do all things that lie in our power; and then may we stand still, with the utmost assurance, to see the salvation of God, and for his arm to be revealed." I love this scripture! To me, this means that we will be given trials, but how we deal with our trials is up to us. We can complain, which can make the trial seem harder than it may be. Or, we can go through the hard times with a smile on our face while whistling a happy song! Doing this makes the hard times I go through seem a little more bearable. Or even a lot more bearable! It is hard to be happy sometimes, but you gotta fake it until you make it! :) Anyways, welcome to my blog I guess! I doubt I will update it much, seeing as how my life is incredibly unphotogenic. :) Here is a happy picture though. It's the newly-hatched-yet-flew-away-already bird's nest. :)

Bird's nest!
