Sometimes in and ordinary life love comes and changes your whole plans. I think of myself as a princess who was looking for her prince charming and I found him. Not only did I find him but he took me to my castle and married me. May 4th 2013 is the exact day. I was having really cold feet. I knew that this decision was going to change the rest of my life. I didn't want to make the wrong one. I knew I loved Cody but I wasn't sure if I was ready to get married. I had some pretty crazy dreams about marrying a girl in Vegas a couple days before. Silly Satan. He didn't get to me. The day of the wedding I woke up at 5:00 A.M. to get ready. I wasn't in that good of mood. I was scared for my life. My sister Jillian helped me get ready and did my hair. She did a really good job! I hopped in the car with my parents and my grandparents. We had some good conversation about the temple and things. I'm so glad my Grandma and Grandpa Richardson were there. They are the only Grandparents I have that are living. The second I drove to the temple I knew I had made the right decision. It is so pretty!!! I love the San Diego Temple!! I wish that everyone could enjoy the Blessings of the Temple and having a Temple Wedding. LOVE!! I'm so happy. Enjoy all the pictures. This is a day I had waited for and prepared for my whole life.It was so worth it. Enjoy all the pictures.
This is a picture right after Me and Cody got out of the Temple. Perfect day.

I apologize that this is so long but I have lots to be grateful for!
I recently moved to California in August and I live with my Brother and his wife. Above is a picture of us at our first time to Disneyland while I was here. We also celebrated my 21st Birthday.
I got hired to teach Zumba at the YMCA in Riverside. Complete blessing! Damon goes to the daycare while I teach. I now will start teaching swim and lifeguarding which I'm excited about. The lord loves me alot!
This is sweet little Damon. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love him. I can't imagine how it will be with my own family someday. So excited!!
My sister Sarah and her family came and visited us in Cali. We are visiting the L. A. Temple. Beautiful!!
Jillian made this for me on my birthday!
This was my setup when I first moved to Cali. It has since changed.
Me and Ryan are weird. I love him:)

Wow!! Time sure flies when you are having fun! I have not posted on this blog since I returned home from my week of the Miss Arizona Competition! My life has been pretty crazy since that week and I have lots to share! Shortly after I returned home from Miss Arizona I got a job as a busser at Casa Manana which is a Mexican Food Restaurant in Safford where I grew up! The school year as my reing as Miss Graham County I ran as the ASEAC Service Coordinator for Eastern Arizona College and won so I served as Service Coordinator my 3rd year at EAC. Through out this year I had many wild experiences that I would like to share with you! For those that know my brother Ryan Innes is a professional musican and has made a career out of it. He has been in many wonderful competitions throughout his life and has definetely made a name for himself. I'm SOO proud of him and proud to call him my brother. He came up on one competition where he would have the rare chance of opening for the newly found artist, Andy Grammer. I had never heard of this dude. I always heard his song on the radio but I never knew what his name was. When I found out my brother was going to opening up for the dude that sings "But you gotta keep your head up" I told my mom that I was going to do anything that I could to go. It was going to be a once in a lifetime chance to meet this famous dude. Ryan competed against some other bands and won the competition! This means he was going to have the chance up performing at the Stadium of Fire and open up for the "Beach Boys." Kind of a big deal right!! I was going crazy!! Such a proud sister! To make the story short Ryan ended up winning the whole competition and won 10,000. It was a dream to be at his show at Stadium of Fire and a memory I will never forget! Heres some pics to prove it!
Me and Andy

Well its done, we have a new Miss Arizona and one I'm very proud to call my friend and sister in the pageant system! It was wonderfull performing on stage and rubbing shoulders with her! I know that all that went down this week happened for a reason and I'm extremely happy with the results! I made some wonderful friends! We have 16 wonderful girls representing there cities, towns and counties in Arizona! The future is in good hands! Who knows what the future holds for Danielle McBurnett, Felicia McGee, Andrea Malinski, Richelle Harris, Katelyn Niemic, Vanessa Sircy, Tiffany Hilburn, Rebecca Hasulak, Melody Knudson, Chelsee Moe, Mary Ann Schrulowitz, Kyra Batte, Kathryn Clark, and Brittany Farrar but I know there future is bright! All great girls with lots of drive and motivation to make a difference!
I had a very eventful, exhausting week! It started out at Crackers and Company where we had our sign in dinner and I signed my face on accident! It kind of became my trademark because every person's program that I signed, I ended up signing my face! At Crackers we were supposed to act like we were one a sunset cruise and Miss Arizona, Kathryn Bulkley was the captain and dressed up super cute! All these pictures are on the website so I am telling you people, look at the website! http://www.miss-arizona.org/!
Well monday we started learning all the choreography for our production numbers! We went to Wagners Dance studio in Gilbert for that! Good times! I accidently ripped a whole in my black shorts one of the days because I was dancing so hard! haha That is saying something right?! haha We got to go to amazing jakes, Phoenix Children's hospital and many wonderful restaurants that sponsored the Miss Arizona Organization!
My dad bought my John Deere stool so I have that back now! My interview with my judges went really well. They asked me lots about being a member of the LDS church and about Mitt Romney. I felt I answered quickly and with exactness. I have no regrets at my week at Miss Arizona and am extremely greatful for the support that I have received through out my reing as Miss Arizona. This is not a one man job and I'm so greatful for my Parents, Ann Ellsworth and many others who have stepped up to the plate to be my supporters and helped me endure to the end of my year! I"m so excited to be Miss Graham County for a couple of more months and hope to make the best of it! I leave in July to start teaching my NCA camps and I"m super stoked for that! The theme this summer is Rockin' with NCA! I literally get to be a ROCKSTAR this summer! Dream come true:) I'm excited to make new friends and help cheerleaders all over Arizona have a successful year as Captains and leaders of there school as Cheerleaders! I know being a cheerleader has taught me many things! Well this is all I have for tonight! God Bless everyone nad have a wonderful week! My quote of the day is, "Those who make the best of the way things turn out are the most successful!" May we all make the best our circumstances in life, whatever they may be! Come what may and Love it!
These are some videos of songs I performed too! Good times!
