Practice Girlfriend

I don't know about anybody else but for me it seems that there are "practice relationships." These are all too prevalent currently.

Many may ask what a "practice relationship" is. Well in my opinion it is as follows:
1. You spend a lot of your free time with each other.
2. Go to dinner, movies, dancing, and other activities together.
3. Sometimes you flirt or in some cases even have a NCMO (non committal make out)

Pretty much you do everything that you would in a relationship just without a commitment of going anywhere.
Why on earth do we do this to each other?
Is it healthy? Is it normal?
I submit to you that it is not any of the above. However, I have a theory as to why we create or get involved in these types of relationships.

Yes I said it. We look for the easiest possible relationship. In this "practice" we don't have to commit to anyone. It is easy to just call them up if we don't have any plans. There is no real time or effort put into the person. Even though I am sure that they know each other very well. They have most likely shared family, relationship, and work issues with one another. There is no topic they don't discuss. Except the one that neither wants to admit.

That they are using each other. It will eventually become unhealthy because at one point or another one will like the other more than just friends. You can't spend so much time with someone and not become attached. It is impossible.

So for all those in a "practice relationship" jump ship. The person you are spending time with is not a bad person but trust me you will want something more eventually.

Take the plunge even if you have to be alone for awhile, it will be worth it. Go find the one that is the real deal.

Latest and Greatest

For all of those who actually read my blog...Thank you. :) I know I don't post very often but I am trying. I have decided to keep up with a few things in life and this is one of them.
So what is the latest and greatest in Breann's world since the last post:
1.) Got a new job working for Utah Technology Council (LOVE IT)
2.) Moved into a new house but it is a short lease. :(
3.) Took summer school and ended up with a 3.7 GPA
4.) Went white water rafting in WY, Hiked Arches, and went Skydiving. (Pictures will come as soon as I get them from others.)

I am looking forward to a few projects such as writing and a website. Life is good and I am just rolling along grateful for everyday I am given.

Where has it gone?

This picture pretty much sums up what the last two months have been like. FRUSTRATING
I have been busy with callings (2), work, social, dating, and just plain living life. Don't get me wrong it has been fun and an adventure but I sit back and go...hhhmmm what have I accomplished. So the following are a few things to help remind me of what I have done. Pretty much just played.
My friend Josh celebrated his 30th birthday and as a gag gift (please do not take me seriously) this is what my friend Janee and I gave him.
AH shooting adventures. It was great times. Went out to the west mountains of SLC valley and went shooting with a few friends. The boys (Chad, Josh, and Steve who is pictured) enjoyed showing me how to shoot a gun. Which of course I already knew how but I thought I would entertain them and what girl does not love having 3 guys attention??? :)
I went to Mesa twice in January. Once for RJ & Ashley's sealing and another for my Grandpa Bryant's funeral. Life and death continues to astound me how it just balances itself out. In this picture I am with my friend Bryan who I was able to see at a party over the weekend of the sealing. It was great to see family and friends again. Oh how I miss many of them.
Ah the happy couple. RJ & Ashley were sealed for time and all eternity on Jan. 9th, 2010. We are so happy and excited for them.

Well my family and friends that is pretty much the sum course of my life. I am diligently working on my writing currently. I feel strongly on finishing some of these thoughts in my head. Probably just to get them out of my head but still. I look forward to March and the adventures it will bring. Like a trip to NYC, Hockey games, ice skating, and dates (hopefully).
Loves and hugs to you all.

P.S. To Sarah Doster - YOU ROCK!!!
P.S.S. To Leslie Leonard - Congratulations on the new addition of little Fischer...he is adorable.

Christmas Memories

Bryant Family Christmas 2009
Sisters Sisters
Snowball fight
Grandma Gay's house

Christmas 2009 was full of surprises and wonderful memories. We surprised my mom for an early 50th birthday. (sorry mom for giving out your age. but you don't look over 40 trust me) We rented a cabin in Pinetop, AZ for a whole week. We make ornaments, cooked dinners, tree decorating, Sudoku Smackdown (which Crystal won) and lots of other fun things.
It was great to spend time with the family especially because we live so far apart. Yes I know it is not as bad as others but for us we live far apart.
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!!!

Time is Gone

Where does the time go? I have not updated my blog in awhile and I know that there has been much that has changed. Well not really....I am still single, I still work, and I still go to school. So really life is the same as it has always been. However, it has all been a new experience in UT. Still not sure how I feel about UT. It is cold and wet; but the mountains are gorgeous and I am slowly but surely making a life for myself here.
As for updates I went to San Francisco with 2 of my dearest friends for my 30th birthday. And as luck would have it I have a ton of pictures. So here are just a few.
Amber, Me, & Heather enjoying the sites of San Fran
I am terrified of being out on open water.

My Birthday Cake (Alethia gave me the idea for it.)

I am too cute for jail. :)

Birthday Wishes

Hello to all. So it is the eve of my 30th Birthday and I have spent most of the day rummaging through memories. Man life has been one crazy ride after another. But I wouldn't change it. Don't get me wrong there are parts I wish to delete or skip past but the end of the story is still untold and I am excited to see how it turns out.
I am truly blessed and many of you know the reasons and how. I can not express enough love, thanks, and appreciation to my family, friends, and Savior for helping me along this journey. Especially to my parents who despite my best efforts at stubbornness and even stupidity have stuck in there with me. They are truly an inspiration and my heroes. Both of them.
As this next chapter of life begins I look forward to the road ahead. I can not dwell on the past anymore life is in front of me. So if you see me looking back turn my head around and tell me to get a move on. There are things yet to be done and to come.
Love you all,
Carla Breann

Latest and Greatest

I have just returned from a whirlwind few weeks. Between Oklahoma, Arizona, and Utah I am just plain tuckered out. However I have finally landed in a new place in Cottonwood Heights, UT and have a job. YEAH!!! My own space and money to support my ever growing school habit. LOL
There is not much to tell beyond that. I went to my cousin Kirsten's wedding and it was wonderful. I have such a loving family. Even though events tend to undo us sometimes we always seem to pull it off and make it look easy.
I have a few pics to add but alas I am using a computer that is not my own and so they will have to wait for another day.
Question of the Day: What happens to all our old appliances???? Do they get recycled or just thrown away? Waste of a landfill if they are just thrown away. :(

Loves to all.... BB
