A Day in Paradise

So if you cant tell who these crazy people are..from left to right..David, me and Charlie! We went up to paradise for a day and I watched David and Charlie "eat it" quite a few times as they went off the jump they made, and I learned how to snowboard, and just to let you know I am now hooked. Skiing just isnt my thing =]

There is a story behind this picture: So David wanted me to take a picture for him but I wasnt really paying attention to him so he grabbed my hood to get me to come but instead I completley just fell over and him and Charlie had to have a picture of me just laying there =P
Let me hear you say it: GANGSTA

Mormon Helping Hands

I never knew you could have so much fun in the mud...or maybe it was just the fact that I was getting the opportunity to serve! It was such an awesome experience seeing all of the LDS members that. There was up to 3000...that right there tells you the church is true!

One Month

So as we enter into December everyone is getting excited for christmas....except me! For me it means that school is getting closer and closer! Ive been so excited to go but now that its almost here I am scared! Today I went to both the home ward and the singles ward and got the opportunity to bare my testimony in both. It was the hardest for me in the home ward cause its been my ward for 10+ years! I know I always complained about wanting to get out of the ward but I guess you never know what you have until its gone. As I get closer to leaving for school I am starting to realize more and more how much I love my family and how much I am going to miss them! I guess I dont really live close to anyone but Mom, Dad and David but it makes me miss everyone else even more. Thank goodness I have the blessing to only be 4 hours away from Daniel,Britt and Havalah,Brigg (and just so you 2 know...i'll be down to see you tons so get ready). I guess the whole point of this blog is just to let everyone know how much I love them and that they will be recieving frequent sunday calls while I am at school, a habit I should have started a lonng time ago!
I love you all tons!

The tired life of Sierra Burton

As Dad left work today and I was staying for another 4 hours I mentioned to him I was very tired. See, I worked 8:30-1:20 at Old Navy and was now at Panorama from 4-9. He said welcome to the life of work, and congratulations. As much as I love knowing I am making lots of money towards sure is exausting! It makes time go quicker and I am now actually tired at night when I go to bed. I was thinking about getting a membership at a gym so that I can stay in shape, but even I, the great energy bunny, am out of energy and dont think I can muster enough for a quick jog and the lifting of a few weights!

Old Navy!!!

So I can finally say I love my job. Tomorrow is my last day of training and I love it. I am only working in Logistics..I put the clothes on the floor, set up displays etc. and I wake at at 545 to go to work...but I love it! I stay busy and get to work w/ lots of other people and still do customer service. Yesterday they needed more people so I stayed on an extra 3 hours and I was exhausted when I came home but it was a good exhausted!I now know what kind of job I need...a job that keeps me busy =]

For the sisters!

So I have been told many a time by Anjuli and Joy to keep my blog updated...which I have not done such a good job at..but for now I will update you all on what is going on in the Sweet Life of Sierra Burton!
As many of you know I just recently returned for a week and half of "intense" traveling. I went from Hawaii to Washington to Utah all in 24 hours, but now I am home and getting ready to start a new job! Old Navy..I wish I could somehow put the song online here lol!! As I start that job I have to work as hard as I can in order to get as many hours as I possibly can...for college is approaching!
Along with working I am cleaning out my room. I know you are all thinking, you have 3 more months but then Havalah was so kind to remind me..."Sierra you have like 5 years worth of spring cleaning to do..under you bed alone". So I thought I would get a head start on things seeing as I have a large adventure ahead of me =]!
You also know Mom just had surgery on her right wrist for Carpel Tunnel. One more to go! So I am having fun being Mom's personal nurse..and I get to drive the Mini =] cant complain there..jk kidding its been fun to help take care of Mom, who of course never complains and just keeps smiling!
Love you All and I will do my best to keep you updated on the Sweet Life of Sierra Burton

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Anjuli and I came home last night very happy to have obtained our copies of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows! We waited in line for about 45 min then left the store very excited...I managed to stay ip till about 1:30 to read the 1st chapter...I was proud of myself for putting it down! My favorite part was opening the book and reading inside the cover: We now present the seventh and final installment in the epic tale of Harry Potter. It was kind of a sad moment thinking how this is the last book since Dad has been reading these books to me since I was about 10 or 11! All I have to say she better not kill Ron or Hermione!

Yes i know i look like a 2 year old and a asian..I was told this by the guy standing behind me!

He may look like a nice boy in this picture..but looks can be deceiving..this is the man who put me through much pain..but he also taught me a lesson~NEVER hit the driver before its your turn!

To be honest with you I am not quite sure where my body is in this picture...I imagine it is flying across the water somewhere oh and in pain!

June 15, 2007-Graduation

Thanks guys you are awesome!!


We just had to throw up the deuces (peace sign) cause I know how much my family loves when i do that!!

"Got my vans on but they look like sneakers"..yah none of you know this song but you might remember it from that "annoying song" that goes off on my cell phone! This was mine and Tiarra song and even though you all deny it she is the one who told me I was 1/2 black..and how could she be my sister if i wasnt 1/2 :D

Who knew that graduation could be so sad...Tashi always said how sad she was going to be when we all left but I never really realized it until she walked up to me after graduation and she just started crying...I love her so wildside my best friend and my new adopted sister!

Best Friends for life..we lived up our graduation and had fun as Walking Partners!!

Just for you!!

So after all of the pressure and pushing of my wonderful siblings I finally gave in, i know it is a shocker but im pretty sure if you keep breathing you will all be okay :D!!
