I-I-I I Work Out.

So yeah. The title says it all. I'm working out. I like it. I like that "Runner's High" afterwards. Hooray for endorphins right? Anyways, I want a smokin' hot bod. Which in all reality, probably will never be as good as a I want it, or just when it does, I'll get pregnant. Its my luck. But having a gym that I can use for free in our neighborhood has been really nice :) 

The good part is I have started to notice little changes in the way my clothes fit. And at least I feel like I look good in what I'm wearing. My motivation is simple, much like myself. I want to play soccer again, not like I did in high school. Better. Faster, stronger, and harder than I ever have before. And just the not being so round part would be nice too. But soccer is my main motivation. 

I'm biking, running, a little bit of weight training, and swimming. Only in Arizona can you swim in January. Hopefully, it pays off before I stop doing it. If I ever stop. I'll post pictures if I ever feel like I've mad a big enough improvement to show the world. But for now, I'll just stay behind the screen :)

Current Goings On....

Well World, I think it finally happened. I grew up. Not completely, but a little bit. I've slowly started to notice all the little "grown up" things I'm doing. Its weird. I guess that's what happens when you get married. You slowly, but surely, become an adult. And I've begun my descent into adulthood. And I may not seem like much of an adult to some, but I've definitely noticed I've changed a bit. For starters:

1. I carry a purse now. 
I hate purses, they're an excuse to carry around a ton of crap that you don't need. 
  
2. I don't just wear V-Neck t shirts all the time. 
Partially because of work, but its increasingly becoming something I like to do. 

3. I paint my finger nails.
Not "adulty" but more "girly" and I fix them when they mess up. 

4. I have a "real" wallet. 
That's right folks, no more duct tape for this girl. 

5. And I just feel more mature. 
Not something that I thought was possible. At all. 

It just seems weird, in about the span of a year, it seems like I'm such a different person, but at the same time, I'm totally the same. Personality anyways. 




On a different note, we finally got some pictures hung up in our room using some of the lovely frames we got from our wedding!!! I'm so happy :) its starting to feel like home.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Well y'all, its that time of year again. Everyone posting on Facebook how much they love the holidays, and random little tidbits about it. So instead of bombarding people's news feeds with how much I love eggnog and the smell of Christmas Trees, and how excited I am to have Thanksgiving with both of my families this year, I will post a little something here, so people have the option of reading it or not :) 

I'm thankful for my loving husband. 
I'm thankful for my family, old and new. 
I'm thankful for my friends, and especially my best friend, she's done more for me than she'll ever realize.
I'm thankful for the Gospel in my life, and the support it brings in my life. 
I'm thankful for a place to sleep and a roof over my head. 
I'm thankful for all the people that had a hand in putting together our wedding reception. 
I'm thankful for my job, not only to have something to keep me occupied, but to be able to support my husband and I. 
I'm thankful for music. 
I'm thankful for my temple recommend. (and the Temple of course)
I'm thankful for my dreams, goals and ambitions, for helping make me who I am. 
I'm thankful for eggnog, because its delicious. 
I'm thankful for modern conveniences, for making life, more convenient. 
I'm thankful for Pinterest, for keeping me from being bored all the time. 
I'm thankful for cuddling. 
I'm thankful for my talents. 
and last but not least......
I'm thankful for all the people that have changed my life, in good ways or bad.  Because you've made me who I am. And I like who I am. :)

I love this time of the year. Not so much the weather, but all the love that gets passed around. Not only to those we know personally, but all the love that people give to complete strangers who need a little help. 

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

Finally MARRIED :) and Loving It!

So I'm now officially Courtney K.... Not quite legally yet, but I'm working on it as fast as the people doing the paperwork will let me :) 

For the one week of marriage that I've experienced, its awesome :) Unfortunately, my new hubby likes to go to sleep much much later than I'm accustomed to, and I don't really like going to bed before him (for the time being) So he comes to bed earlier for me :) Which is weird for him, and me a little bit, cause I'm sorta staying up later than I'm used to, but I'm sure our sleeping patterns/preferences will line up at some point :)

The Honeymoon was AWESOME!!! Hawaii was beautiful :) We had a wonderful time in the warm weather and beautiful atmosphere. Lots of time spent in the water, some areas were easier on us than others, but overall we had a really good time :)

I have a feeling that being married to him is going to be so awesome, very fun and playful :) 

In other news, I completed my first day of training at Picture Me. It seemed very long, watching videos and taking little "tests" at the end of each one, but hopefully I will actually start working fairly soon :)

Well all, life is good :) So happy to finally be married to the man of my dreams, and for life to start moving somewhere :)

Oct 28, 2011

Exactly TWO WEEKS!!!!

So excited, the countdown has been on since the day we decided our day, and we are finally in the home stretch!!! I've started to put the centerpieces together, just to sorta fiddle around with some ideas, and here's what I've come up with:


The colors look a little off because the camera on my phone isn't very good, but this is what I've got so far, and one more but we don't have the flowers to put in them yet :)

In other news: I finally got a job, well another job, because I'm still "technically" employed by a different company, but I don't get any hours from them.


I'm going to be a kiddie photographer!! Haha I'm so excited though!! It'll be nice to be able to bring in a little money for my man and I :) I'm excited to start working doing two things I love, well I'm not doing the children (because that's illegal, and disgusting) But I sure do love taking pictures, hopefully this doesn't ruin it for me!! :)

Oct 18, 2011

Twenty Four Days and Counting!!

I can't believe how close it's getting to the happiest day of my life!!! I am so very blessed that this wonderful man came into my life :) He is so very sweet to me, constantly telling me how beautiful and amazing he thinks I am, despite how many times I roll my eyes at him. I can tell just by the way he looks at me that he just wants to give me the world, and all the love and happiness he possibly can. I love that he puts up with me, not that I'm super hard to please or needy or anything like that; I just happen to be extremely indecisive and I have always been such a closed off person, which a lot of times he respects, but sometimes he doesn't, and I need that!! He understands me more than I understand myself sometimes.

But what I love most, is that we're friends too. We can just hang out, and be sarcastic and weird with each other. Like last night, we had a Nerf gun war, and ran all over the house hiding, dodging bullets and sneaking up on each other. Which was so much fun, and I felt like I actually pseudo-accomplished something I had pinned on Pinterest  :)  Then, we went outside planning on just shooting air-soft guns in the backyard. We ended up going scorpion hunting with his brother, using the guns and a pool stick :) Which was super fun.

I can't wait for the rest of my life with him, we're gonna have so much fun I can feel it :) He truly is one of my best friends, and way more than I deserve sometimes. I've been so blessed to have such a wonderful model for an amazing marriage, thanks to to my parents. They have what they call a "Disneyland Marriage." Which loosely translates to being perpetually in the "honeymoon phase" and I hope and pray for that every day.

I'm so very grateful for all the people in my life, especially for the one who got James and I together :) I never would have imagined I would have fallen so madly in love at this young age. But I can't wait for the rest to come!

More and More Wedding Stuff!!

Well we finally did our engagement photos a couple weeks ago, and ordered the invites. Now I'm in the process of addressing them all, and putting them all in the mail. What a time consuming task! I mean, I've done invites and stuff before, but I never had to get it done asap. But I got a referral from a recently married friend for a "Design Your Own Announcement" website. I was really impressed with the quality. 123print.com! It works very well. Besides me being extremely particular about them, (from doing graphic design for a few years) and having a tad bit of trouble with wording, (since the MIL wanted to have both sets of parent's names on it) it was really easy to do! And I've had several people tell me how cute they are :) Turned out  much better than I expected!!




Now I've got to work on the centerpieces for the tables, and picking out leis. Which is proving to be a little more stressful than I want it to be. But I'll live. And I've gotta do cake. Which I have no clue about. Awesome haha :) I've just gotta remember its only 35 days away!! I'm definitely ready to be done planning, but I can't wait to be able to spend the rest of my life with my husband to be :) which makes this all worth it. Also knowing that we will be in Hawaii the next day helps a lot too :) Wish me luck!! I hope I don't lose my mind in this crazy process.

Finally Got It!!!

Well y'all, I finally got my wedding dress!!! I'm so excited, the biggest weight has been lifted off of my shoulders :) To be honest, I thought that the whole dress shopping experience was gonna be super hard and very stressful. But it was anything but that! I tried on a total of five dresses. And decided that I had fallen in love with the second one :) after seriously considering the very last one of course. I could not stop smiling once I had it on!! It is so simple and, just me. The other contender was very blingy, (which was so very fun to play with) but it just wasn't me. I'm so happy that its over with, because I knew, that if any part of the wedding planning process was going to "break" me.... it was gonna be that. So glad that it didn't though :) the rest of the planning should be downhill from here, hopefully going to do our engagement shoot soon :) which will be fun, I hope :)

Plans and Payson

So, Saturday James and I went with my family to a family reunion in Payson, AZ. And I gotta say, it was pretty fun. I actually went out on the field and played softball for the first time in like forever, and I didn't do too bad. I got a piece of it all three times I was up, and actually got on base once. But enough about my amazing softball skillage.

It was a good day, James was super worn out after and slept most of the way home :)


Anyways, we're still working on all the wedding plans, half way done registering, booked the temple and the chapel, and the honeymoon plane tickets and room, started Temple Prep classes a few weeks ago, booked a photographer, and going wedding dress shopping this Saturday. Goodness, I'm gonna be busy for a while :)

Since We Last Spoke....

Something huge happened since I last updated the blogging world, I traded in my boyfriend for a fiancĂ©!!!

(The ring was his mother's, passed on to which ever kid got married first.... Don't worry, she is alive and well and his folks are still together, the just upgraded rings :] )

We are getting married on 11/11/11....at 3 P.M.   11 A.M. was already taken, oh well :)

I've been looking at wedding stuff all the time, and I still am not 100% sure of what I want, I'm almost there though... I've been thinking about stealing this idea for an announcement...


At least it could be on one side of it anyways :)

So anyways, there is lots and lots to do, and I couldn't be any happier to marry that sweet man of mine :)

Aug 2, 2011

San Diego and He is We!!

So, Tuesday morning, my boyfriend texts me and asks me if I would want to go to San Diego with him and his Dad to visit his Grandparents, and I say, "Sure that could be really fun to go on a road trip for a couple days!!" And he says, "Cool , we're leaving tomorrow morning and we will be home sometime Saturday night." Hot dang, I thought.... Well, we got home at 4am on Sunday morning and I absolutely had a blast!!
 We went to Sea World on Thursday and Saturday, and I got a wicked sunburn from Thursday. Which I then proceeded to be made fun of by his Dad and Grandparents for being white and getting sunburned to the point of looking like a cooked lobster.... But who cares, it was fun right? Right. Friday we slept in and hung out around the apartment until we went to the Padres Game that night, which was really cold, and the Padres lost, which I wasn't torn up about or anything, but its what happened. Saturday we went to a flea market in the morning, and I picked up yet even more pairs of sunglasses, which are pretty sweet looking if I do say so myself. Then in the afternoon we went to Sea World again, and did all the stuff we didn't get to do the day before, and saw some of the night shows. They  were really good :) Then the long trek home, which I slept a lot of the way, because we didn't really even leave until like 10:30 that night, but it was still a fantastical trip, and I wouldn't have wanted to do it differently at all :)
When my family had dinner Sunday night, my mom looks at me from across the table and asks," You still like him right??"
I have a bit of a puzzled look on my face as I answer, "Yes?..."
She says,"Okay. Just wondering, because sometimes, when you spend a lot of time like that with one person, they start to sort of, push your buttons....."
"Yeah Mom, I still like him." Hahaha

And now last night, he let me drag him to a concert, for this band I'm a little obsessed with.... They call themselves He is We, and I like 'em, I like 'em a lot... :)
During said concert, they played my favorite song of theirs titled "I Wouldn't Mind" which I was super excited about and he totally noticed... since it's kinda my song for he and I <3 
But they played an awesome set :) and I got a t-shirt signed by the lead guitarist and a picture with the vocalist :) which was awesome 
So overall, a pretty awesome week, if I do say so myself :)

Well Isn't That Funny.....

So today, I went with my boyfriend and his family to Amazing Jakes for his Mom's birthday. He and I were a little bit later than everyone else... so our wristbands were waiting up at the front desk when we got there. It wasn't until I had gotten home and took off the wristband to see that this was written on the inside...



I don't know about anyone else, but I thought it was kinda funny. We aren't married, or engaged... So when I sent a picture of it to him he just laughed, and said his Mom was getting ahead of herself. But at least I thought it was cute :)

Jul 1, 2011

Woo Hoo!!

So I've finished all of my respite/habilitation classes and orientations!! It's been forever it seems like since my aunt first told me I should apply, and I can finally, proudly say that I HAVE A JOB!!! I'm so excited and I can't wait to start doing something that I know I will love and challenge me at the same time. It's been a much longer road than I ever wanted it to be, but I'm glad that I can finally have something to spend my days doing :] I could not be happier with how my life is going :) Had a fun little "Date Night" with my boy last night. We spent the night hanging out in my backyard with a fire in the firepit and smores and stargazing. I don't think I could have thought of a better way to spend the night :)I sure do love my life, and I wouldn't want to change it for anything!!!

I Am One Happy Girl!!

So, right now, life is absolutely wonderful!! I'm dating a super sweet guy (Courtesy of my amazing best friend) Who will probably never believe me when I say I hate being set up.... But hopefully she won't need to try to set me up again ;) I should have a job soon (fingers crossed) The interview went very smoothly, and she seemed like she liked me. I have been waiting for this job since the middle of March!! So hopefully she will shoot me that email by Friday that has everything that I need to be officially Respite certified! That would be wonderful :) Still deciding whether I want to or can take any classes for next semester, maybe soon though?!? Even if I don't life will still be coming together and it will still be wonderful <3

Apr 28, 2011

So It's Been A While.....

Since I last posted, well.... I don't think a whole lot has changed. I went to Vegas for Spring Break, (and I haven't posted pictures from that yet). Still don't have an official job yet, but I'm getting there. I babysit my youngest cousin twice a week. And I'm working on getting Respite Certified so I can work with some of my other cousins and one of my Mom's sunbeams. So hopefully that will get going here soon..
There's about two Institute classes left for the semester, which is kinda sad, but I'm glad I'll have two extra days a week to sleep in :)
I have a bit of a countdown going..... See my Dad is going back to school to be an Airplane Mechanic(or something similar, I can't quite remember) and he gets a week off from school... And the beginning of that week, we're going to Disneyland!! So there's 11 days 'til that. :) and I can't wait!! Don't worry, I'm sure I will post plenty of pictures, if I remember.

Learning New Things...

Who says you need to be in college(or even be enrolled in school for that matter) to learn something new?? I sure don't!!
I learned something at the car wash today.... Make sure your window is rolled up before you even start to worry about making sure you pull in to the dumb thing right... Because your window will seem like it is going up slower than it ever has before, and like it says on water rides at Disneyland, you will get wet!!
So there you have it, my idiot moment of the day, but hey, I learned something.... That's what's important here right?? :)

Mar 9, 2011

Update Time!!

I don't know if it feels like this for anyone else, but it feels like I haven't updated the Internet on my "status". 
Well World, not too much has changed for me. Still jobless, and still not going to school. But.... I am going to Institute at CGCC  twice a week.
I've had a few more job interviews since I last posted, but it basically didn't get me anywhere. I went in and chit-chatted for a few minutes then left. So when the call back date was dead and gone, I quickly realized, that it wasn't gonna happen.
Is finding a job frustrating, yes; but impossible, I don't think so.

On a less pathetic note..... I had fun last night getting to see the Best Friend for her 20th birthday :) Getting there took a lot longer than I had expected, I got so turned around in the dark, but eventually I got it all figured out.  We watched Biggest Loser with her parents, which made it soo much funnier. Talking about the male contestant's moobies is a lot funnier with other people :P

The WEIRDEST Dreams Ever!!!

So last night, I had two of the most random dreams that I have ever had. I would understand the weirdness if I had taken a dose of Nyquil or Tylenol PM, but this was completely unmedicated dream weirdness...

So dream #1..... I was crawling through Walmart on my hands and knees with a striped clutch purse in my mouth, which happened to be filled to the brim with straws.  And I was hiding from the employees. Then I decided it was time to get out of there. So I spit out the purse, nonchalantly stood up, and made my way toward the exit. I get outside, and its snowing. My mom is waiting with my little brother in the "getaway car" and as I'm sprinting through the snow, I see an old friend's mother in her car. I wave and we say hello, then I jump in my mom's car. As we are pulling out of this parking lot, we hardcore curb-check the Tahoe, and slightly land on this mini van, and it leaves this huge scratch on the hood, and my mom just drives away like it didn't even happen. Then I woke up.

Dream #2 was a little bit more frustrating.... I actually woke up and was a little mad, until I realized it was a dream.

So I was getting out of church right, and for some odd reason the Best Friend's ward was at my building and switching classes. But we both happened to be in family wards.... which is odd, but anyways, she came out of her class and I came out of mine and I got to see her for like five seconds before we both had to leave, she tells me that she will see me soon and we go our seperate ways. I get home and my dad was getting ready to leave to go to a ward choir practice, but it wasn't our ward, it was her's. So I tell him that I want to go, and he says," Why would you wanna go? It's not like it's even our ward?" Then he gets my mother involved and it doesn't get any better for me. My mom says," Give me one good reason why you would want to go to this." I proceed to tell her that I want to go because it's Cate's ward and I would like to see her. I was then told by my mother that I didn't have a good enough reason to go. I was livid. And anyone who knows me knows it takes a lot to make me mad. So I argued for a moment, stil didn't get to go. So I woke up angry. Then I realized the whole thing was a dream, and went back to sleep.

So there you have it, Internet. There was my crazy dreams from last night. Hope you are happy.

Day #30!!!

My favorite song this time last year....

Hmmm, it would probably have to be Here In Your Arms by Hellogoodbye :) just a fun song!!

I can't believe that the 30 day challenge is over! I honestly thought that I wouldn't be consistantly posting every day, but I did it and I'm so glad that it's over lol.... Now to get back to posting "important" stuff!! Lol

Feb 24, 2011

Day #29

A song from my childhood...

Growing up my mom would play Dixie Chicks in the car. And other assorted country music, or what ever happened to be playing on Radio Disney :) lol those were the days!!

Feb 23, 2011

Day #28

A song that makes me feel guilty??

Hmmm.... I don't think there is one.... I don't think I ever really feel guilty. At least there isn't a song that can make me feel that way :) I like to own what I do no matter how much trouble it gets me in :) lol

Feb 22, 2011

Day #27

A song I wish I could play??
Uhm....like every song I know. 
If only I could read music.....
*sigh*
I guess for now, I will just have to stick to my air guitar, air drums, and air piano. :)

Feb 21, 2011

Day #26

A song that I can play on an actual instrument....
Well, that seriously limits my song choices, considering the fact that I can't read music.
The only song I can play, happens to be on the piano, and I can only play one hand, one note at a time. And it happens to be the Sesame Street Theme Song. I know, super lame right??? But at least I can say that I have something to post :)

Feb 20, 2011

Day #25

A song that makes me laugh??? Probably the Larry the Cable Guy Christmas carols... It's not really a song.... More like a slew of fake ones... But reguardless, it makes me laugh, amongst many, many other songs :)

Feb 19, 2011

Day #24

A song I want to play at my funeral??
Well, to be honest, I haven't thought too terribly much about that little event... Cause I don't have to plan it :) But seriously, I want my funeral to be a happy thing. I don't want sadness because I am gone, but happiness that I was here, and that I am in a much better place.... So at my funeral, I want someone to play that song "If your happy and you know it" :) And I want it to be sung until everyone in the room is convinced that they are indeed happy... Even if they have to make up verses. :)

Feb 18, 2011

Day #23

A song I want to play at my wedding.
Well this list could be extremely longer than necessary ......Because nowadays, I hear a cute song on the radio, and think, "Hey, that could be cute to play at my wedding....if it ever happens.." :)

But this song is for sure, I want it :)

Feb 16, 2011

Day #21

A song I listen to while driving. 

Most of these posts don't have a story to go along with them, but this one does:
Okay, so picture this: I had to go pick up my sister from school right. So I forgot what time school got out, so I left really really early. I'm sitting in the parking lot, just waiting for that final bell to ring, my iPod is on shuffle, and I'm just letting the music happen. When all of a sudden this song comes on. 

And so it starts, and I'm singin' along (maybe a little dancin' too) when the chorus hits. 

And I am scream-singing like you couldn't even imagine. 

Then all of a sudden, yeah you guessed it, school let out. My radio was up so loud that I didn't hear that final bell ringing. So I'm belting like no other (which probably sounded quite awful) and all the high school chitlins start walking out of the buildings and some of them saw me, and knew exactly what I was doing. I'm sure that there was some level of hysterical laughter, but I couldn't hear it. 

Then I get that odd feeling like when you know someone is watching you. So I turn to my right, and there they are. Laughing. Then they realize that I saw them laughing at me, and swiftly walk away, probably to continue their laughter. 

And there I sat. Music still blaring, just a tad bit embarrassed. But then the song ended and the next one began playing, and I moved on with the music. :)

Feb 15, 2011

Day #20

A song I listen to when I'm angry.....
I don't get angry too often, but...... yeah :)

Feb 14, 2011

Day #19

A song from my favorite album?
Since I don't have a favorite album, I will just do one from and album I love :)
Since it is Valentine's Day after all, I think this song is kinda fitting :) lol

Feb 12, 2011

Day #17

A song I hear often on the radio. 
Although I don't listen to the radio too much. :)

Feb 11, 2011

Day #16

A song that I used to love, but now hate??
Don't hate on me because I used to like it, I was like eight, cut me some slack. :)

Feb 10, 2011

Day #15

A song that describes me.
Well I don't really know how to describe myself in music form......
I don't think one song has the ability to capture all the personality bursting out of my soul, or at least I can't think of one. That's why this post is up so late, because in my opinion, one thing can't describe me. :)
But if you can think of something that I may have missed, leave a comment... I would love to hear your opinions :)

Feb 9, 2011

Day #14

A song no one would expect me to love......
Well, I guess it's time for the World Wide Web to know that......
I LOVE LADY ANTEBELLUM :] 
It makes me happy, a lot happy. 
And most people that know my know that I'm not super duper down with Country music, but Lady A is just fan-freakin-tastic :)
Nothing better than dancing in your pj's and singing obnoxiously loud to Lady Antebellum, only if no one else is home of course :)

Feb 8, 2011

Day #13

A song that is my guilty pleasure??? Uhm..... I'm not quite sure I understand the assignment. 
Or maybe I just don't have a conscience, cause if this is supposed to be a song that I don't want people to know that I listen to, I don't think I could ever find one. I am very comfortable with my musical selections.... Granted, there is certain music that I won't play in certain company. But that in no way means I don't want them to know that I listen to it. 

And I don't want to go down the other alley of a "guilty pleasure"...... ( I don't have one of those either. (just for the record) That would be weird.) 

(Personal Opinion inserted there)

Day #12

Song by a band I hate......
I must say, I don't hate many artists, groups, or bands, but there is one group that I would rather shoot myself in the face than listen to....
Kids Bop. 
Completely and entirely useless. For those of you that haven't had the misfortune of hearing Kids Bop, it is basically a large chorus of ankle biters performing a slew of top of the chart hits. It has the ability to ruin pretty much any song out there.
I refuse to post a link to one of there wretched recordings. Look them up if you have the desire to know what having your ears bleed feels like. :) lol

Feb 6, 2011

Day #11

A song from my favorite band....
That's a little difficult, cause I happen to have two favorite bands...... hmph....
Well, I will post a song from both :)

Jimmy Eat World

Feb 5, 2011

Day #10

A song that makes me fall asleep...... This song is pretty good :) 
Oh and anything by Iron & Wine too... 
Actually I have a whole sleep mix, which includes Iron & Wine, Parachute, The Dixie Chicks, Lady A, Ray LaMontagne, Carrie Underwood, Jack Johnson, Brett Dennen, and Dashboard Confessional :)
Kinda random, but I like it :)

Anyone that knows me, knows that I can dance to any song, no matter what it is :) But this song is prolly one of my favorites to dance to :)

Day #8

A song I know all the words to??? That's a lot of songs dude..... I guess it would have to be this one :) such good memories with this song!!!

Feb 2, 2011

Day #7

A song that reminds me of a certain event. 
It would probably have to be this song......
I know what you are probably thinking?? "There isn't another song on the face of this planet that you could have chose??" To answer that... Nope :)

This song reminds me of my freshman year of high school, it was the first dance I ever went to. It was pretty sweet, we had a black light dance. And this was one of the only songs that I remember because one of the guys in our group was singing the unedited version of this song over the edited version... It was pretty funny.... Definitely something I will never forget :)

On another note, I have another job interview for Friday.... 

Kinda nervous, I could potentially be making a lot of money.... But I don't know if I would be any good at selling men's suits and stuff.... And it's a little farther away than I would like to be working.....All the way out at Val Vista and Baseline. Although, I could get to see some cute guys :) Or creepy old men, but I won't think about that aspect... lol

Day #6

A song that reminds me of somewhere. 
I know this is a little cliche, but this song reminds me of Hawaii :) 
 I love it there sooo much. I definitely wish I was there now :)

Jan 31, 2011

Day #5

A song that reminds me of someone??
The easiest route for this post would be to put a song or two that remind me of my bestie
Well I guess that's what I will do :)

There is always this song, but this song is good too. And who could forget this one :)

Can Everything Just Go Back to the Way it Was??

I'm officially sick of living at home. Not that I hate my family or anything, because that is the furthest thing from the truth. I'm not sick of them, I'm just sick of being home ALL the time. Pretty sure the job interview was a bust. They said they would call whether that wanted a second interview or not, but they still haven't called. And they have called people for interviews, cause my cousin got a call back. So no more job prospects. Am I bound to sit at home for an entire semester?? I sure as heck hope not. I would't last the entire semester if that's the case. 
I wanna go back to Thatcher soo bad. At least when I was there I had class to go to. These days I just sit home in my pj's until I feel pathetic enough to change into normal clothes. I'm done with this. I'm done with Gilbert.

Oh yeah.... Day #4 of the music challenge..... I don't really have a song that makes me sad. I don't get sad very often.  So, sorry for the disappointment, if there even was one.

Jan 29, 2011

Day #3

A song that makes me happy??
Lots of songs make me happy..... but which one to post??
I guess I would have to say the Guided Relaxation Dub by Borgore......
It's a newer style of music called Dubstep.....it has a vague resemblance to techno.....
But I like to headbang to this song..... so its kinda like head banging techno.....
Don't knock it 'til you try it.... it's pretty sweet :)

Jan 28, 2011

Day #2

My least favorite song. Hmph..... well I don't know if I have a least favorite..... but if I did, it would probably be anything by Hannah Montana. Or Taylor Swift. Gag me with a fork.  :) lol

30 Day Music Challenge....

So I got the idea off this blog I follow.... Not the same blog that I drew my last copy-cat post from.... but this one is Brooke White's (If you aren't quite sure who she is, she was on American Idol a couple of seasons ago. She actually knows my uncle from high school, but that's beside the point.) And I know what you are prolly thinking now three links in about two sentences? Is she getting paid for the advertisement?? Nope.... and if you didn't think all that and I just made a fool out of myself, I apologize :)

So I thought it would be cool to do this 30 day music "posting challenge", cause I'm always down for a challenge. Hopefully, I remember to post everyday. It shouldn't be that hard, considering the fact that I don't have a job or anything else to do, but lets see how good my memory actually is :) 

So here is the challenge:
Day 01 – Your favorite song
Day 02 – Your least favorite song
Day 03 – A song that makes you happy
Day 04 – A song that makes you sad
Day 05 – A song that reminds you of someone
Day 06 – A song that reminds of you of somewhere
Day 07 – A song that reminds you of a certain event
Day 08 – A song that you know all the words to
Day 09 – A song that you can dance to
Day 10 – A song that makes you fall asleep
Day 11 – A song from your favorite band
Day 12 – A song from a band you hate
Day 13 – A song that is a guilty pleasure
Day 14 – A song that no one would expect you to love
Day 15 – A song that describes you
Day 16 – A song that you used to love but now hate
Day 17 – A song that you hear often on the radio
Day 18 – A song that you wish you heard on the radio
Day 19 – A song from your favorite album
Day 20 – A song that you listen to when you’re angry
Day 21 – A song that you listen to when you're driving
Day 22 – A song that you work out to
Day 23 – A song that you want to play at your wedding
Day 24 – A song that you want to play at your funeral
Day 25 – A song that makes you laugh
Day 26 – A song that you can play on an instrument
Day 27 – A song that you wish you could play
Day 28 – A song that makes you feel guilty
Day 29 – A song from your childhood
Day 30 – Your favorite song at this time last year

So here is day #1
My favorite song, that is a tough one.... but I just may have to say that its Rhythm of Love by Plain White T's :) Got it from my cousin, and I love to rock out to it with my air guitar in hand and my headphones turned all the way up 

Jan 25, 2011

I Miss This....


My phone doesn't take the best, most high res. photos out there, but I think you can catch my drift. :)

On a different note, I'm really excited for my job interview tomorrow. I just wish it wasn't at 5pm so I don't have to wait all day. Hopefully all goes well. :)

And On another different note..... I might be getting a CAR sometime in the next few months :D

Jan 22, 2011

I've Found Myself Another Internet Based Distraction.

Stumbleupon. 
Yes, this is my newest distraction. As if I need anymore of those.... But I found some of the funniest, wackiest, awe inspiring, and thought provoking things there. 
For instance.....

Astronauts are not allowed to eat beans before they go into space because passing wind in a spacesuit damages them. Not to mention the other drawback to passing gas in such a confined space....


I also watched a video of someone singing the song "Forget You" By Cee Lo Green in sign language, well I guess she wasn't technically singing it, but it was still cool. Oh and BTW, it wasn't the clean version that says forget you. So I learned how to say some really naughty words in sign language. Not sure how useful that will ever be, but I guess its just one more weird thing that I will have up my sleeve. lol

And pictures. Lots and lots of them :) 


I'm pretty sure my roommates would swear up and down that the girl in this picture is me.... lol


I'm pretty sure I've me some guys that think this way....

And some cute quotes about love too...



I found what I plan on keeping myself occupied with until my job interview on Wednesday :)


Jan 21, 2011

Latest Happenings :)

So as I was up late one night, endlessly applying for jobs online, I decided to apply at my dream job, in the most ideal location ever. 

You probably think I'm a psycho. Actually WANTING to work at that child filled crazy place, with lots and lots of stuffed animals..... Yeah I may be just a little bit crazy. But nonetheless I applied there anyways.
So then the next day, I was chillin on the couch, I believe I was watching the latest Biggest Loser episode, and the phone starts to ring. My brother goes and looks at the phone, checking the caller-id. "Build-A-Bear Workshop?" My face lights up :) (I look like I'm some little kid that heard that Santa Claus is on the phone, and he wants to talk to me) He looks at me and says, "It's for you."
Pure excitement comes over me as I take the phone. The woman on the phone tells me that they got my online application, and that they are having a group interview next Wednesday. She asks me if I would like to go. In my head I'm thinking, "Uh, duh lady.... Is a pig's butt pork?!?!" But obviously I wouldn't say that. I then proceed to tell her that I would love to go to this interview. So she tells me that the interview starts at 5:00, but I need to be there 15 minutes early so I can fill out a paper application. 
So I hang up the phone, and was soo happy. All I could think about was how I might just possibly be getting my dream job. And how absolutely awesome that would be!!! So hopefully, the interview goes well, and all my wildest dreams will come true. Haha. 
It is nice to think that I might have a job shortly. Cause this whole sitting around the house in my pj's all day thing, is getting quite, shall I say stale? Yeah stale sounds good to me. 

Jan 20, 2011

Just Had to Post This :)

So, I saw a post someone made on fb.... Totally reminded me of my best friend... Not that I think she is obsessed or freaky but.... It just made me think about her and how much fun we have when we are together :)


Bahaha :) Love you!!

Jan 17, 2011

I Can't Believe I Let it Take Control of Me....

So I was chillin' on Facebook this morning, and I saw a post that someone made about this concert coming up in April. 
You would think, oh its just a concert, nothing bad could come of this right??? Wrong!!!!
If you didn't look at the link for the concert, said concert is known as a little shindig called Country Thunder. 
I saw it and immediately thought,"Ooooh!!! That sounds awesome, I wanna go!!" Then I proceed to check who is playing, and I look through the list and I think, "I know who that is, and they are good, and oh I really like them. This is gonna be a wicked sweet concert!!"
Then it hit me, like a ton of bricks. 
I just got excited for a country music concert..... What on earth has this world come to, letting me get all excited for country music. If I had the cajones to slap myself, I'm pretty sure I would have. 

I guess country music is just one more thing I have learned to appreciate since I met my wonderful best friend :)

Jan 11, 2011

Weekend Shenanigans :)

So, over the course of the weekend I did a couple of things....
#1 Got my DRIVER'S LICENSE!!!
#2 Saw a "True Grit" with the best friend. (I'm not quite sure if the movie intended to be hilarious, but to the two of us, yeah it was pretty dang funny!)
#3 Went to singles ward again for the first time since I have been home.... I'm not super fond of going to singles ward, but I guess its better than going to church with my parents. 
Then on Monday (which I do realize is not the weekend) I hung out with Cate and ran errands with her, no matter what we do, we always have fun together :)

Now for the rest of the week?? I need to get a job ASAP.... I didn't even get out of my pj's until like 1 this afternoon. And then I just sit around and fart around on my computer all day and get ringtones for my phone like this one http://www.myxer.com/ringtone:795225/ for when Cate calls me, and I have several other stupid ones too :)
*side note to the best friend..... we need to take more pictures :)*
*and another side note... I would love a copy of that one list :)*

100 Random Things About Me...

Okay, so I got this idea from a blog that I find funny (very very raunchy and dirty sometimes, but funny none the less) FYI, I don't read it all the time, just kinda when I'm in the mood to laugh or I have nothing else to do with my life.  So it inspired me to write down 100 random facts about myself, so here I go...

1. I can't stand it when people spell things wrong, drives me up a wall. I do understand typos and overlook them. But people spelling the same word wrong constantly is something I can't stand. I purposely make sure I spell check my text messages, FB posts and emails for this very reason. But still some how, very rarely, they still sneak up on me.
2. I don't like it when things are stuck to the bottom of my feet. Like when you go to the kitchen in the middle of the night and step on crumbs that were left on the ground, and they just decide to stick, yeah I hate that. I have to wipe it off, sand isn't that fun either.
3. I'm convinced that I have ADHD, even though I have never been "Medically Diagnosed"
4.I keep everything, not like a hoarder or anything, but I just like to hold on to things that may be useful in the future or could make me laugh. But I don't ever keep any school related things, just useless stuff like notes, birthday cards and flyers, mostly useless things that just take up space in my room that I don't have at the moment.
5. I am extremely klutzy, for no apparent reason.
6. I am super obsessed with lighters, especially for one who doesn't smoke at all. I think the count is to about 14ish with one that burns a green flame, and one thats reddish/pink.
7. I could spend forever in the shower, literally hours and hours. It's my thinking place :)
8. I'm a lover, not a fighter. But, if you mess with someone I love, you are screwed.
9. I have been singing and performing since I was 6 years old, and 12 years later I still can't read music to save my life.
10. I love to spoon and cuddle, with practically anyone. It's a creepy trait that I inherited from some of my high school friends that I can't get rid of.
11. I won't eat spaghetti with the sauce on it. I will eat different pasta with the same sauce, it just can't look like spaghetti.
12. I love duct tape, and especially duct tape wallets :)
13. I am a photographer that knows absolutely nothing about my camera, or any of the camera mumbo-jumbo that goes along with it.
14. I won't eat cereal with milk in it, nor do I like to eat the sugary cereals, just stuff like cheerios (plain kind) and shredded wheat. It's weird....
15. When someone asks me if I speak Spanish, I always say "a little". And it's true. I know numbers, colors, months, days, and a few choice phrases. Such as, "Where's my monkey" and "I have a big cat in my pants". Why I remember those phrases instead of the more important ones I learned in two years of Spanish is up for debate.
16. My shopping weaknesses include sunglasses, lighters, and very stupid, random and otherwise useless things. 
17. I have gotten really good at using my "selective hearing" when talking to my little brother, he could have an entire conversation with out me catching a word of it :)
18. I can't stand Harry Potter. Its garbage, pure garbage. Along with Twilight, and all that other fictional nonsense. 
19. I refuse to read anything. Menus I can do.... but basically nothing else. Not even as an assignment for a class. 
20. I don't like my voice on recordings, I realize that's how everybody else hears it, but I think I sound like a man. I simply prefer the voice that only I hear. 
21. I have lost about 20 or 30lbs since I started college. Don't know how, or exactly where it has gone to, but I think I may find them all soon. 
22. I graduated high school solely on the fact that people like me. I did absolutely nothing in practically all my academic classes, especially my senior year. 
23. I have had a guy stalk me every year of my life since about the 6th grade. My freshman year of high school I had two at the same time (which were both legal adults), and they both knew about and helped each other. I have since been scarred for life, and am afraid to have a real relationship with a guy, just to avoid any possible chances of it happening again. 
24. I rarely ever get sick. 
25. I love all types of music, from gangster rap to screamo, techno to country, I love it all. Music will forever have a place in my heart. 
26. I have never cried while watching a movie.
27. I have broken both of my ankles and both of my wrists. I didn't brake my ankles at the same time, but with my wrists I did. 
28. I love doing crazy things. I guess one could call me a thrill seeker. 
29. I can't stand the thought of being perceived as vulnerable. No matter what it is, something as stupid as wearing my knee brace in public, to crying about anything. It doesn't strike me as vulnerability when other people do things like that, its just me. 
30. I love listening to music while I do math, it makes me calm down and focus. But its the exact opposite with english. 
31. I constantly wear bandannas. I love them. People always tell me I look like a "BA" with them on :)
32. I love tie dye and peace signs. I am a Hippie Child and I am proud of it!!
33. I have never successfully pulled an all nighter, I always fall asleep. 
34. According to my mother, I tie my shoes like a first grader. 
35. I am super afraid of snakes, for no apparent reason.

38. It is really hard to piss me off, if you ever happen to, I give you props. 
39. I am overly independent, and obnoxiously stubborn about it. 
40. I'm not really a movie person, I tend to fall asleep or become completely disconnected from the storyline. I don't really have the attention span to watch most movies. 
41. I don't like to talk about what's bothering me. 
42. I am the worst at making decisions that involve other people, if its just me I have no problem. 
43. My favorite colors are teal, yellow, and hot pink. In that order. 
44. I think that making a bed is pointless if you live alone. 
45. I feel bad walking out of a store if I haven't bought anything.

48. I am extremely meticulous when editing film or photos, but especially film. 
49. I love to listen to music really loudly and sing at the top of my lungs, especially when I drive. 
50. I once put a pop-tart in the microwave, with the wrapper still on it. Needless to say I learned rather quickly that I shouldn't do that. 
51. My " I shouldn't say that Filter" doesn't work that well. 
52. I am a very "go with the flow" person. I hardly ever make plans, unless its absolutely necessary. 
53. I do my best work late at night. 
54. My attention span is very, very short. Especially in class. 
55. I have a tendency to Facebook creep, not intentionally, it just happens, and I end up doing it for excessive amounts of time. 
56. I have a very, very loud and distinctive laugh. 
57. When I'm nervous, I can't sit still to save my life. Just constantly fidgeting. 
58. I love to play Air Guitar and Air Drums. 
59. Shopping for bras and undies is extremely embarrassing.

61. I want to be like "Dr. House" one day. 
62. I am extremely sarcastic and rude, and I like to mock people's stupid comments. 
63. I almost never carry a purse, cause that's what pockets are for. 
64. I really like to burn things. Sometimes I'm afraid I will burn down a building. 
65. I almost never know what day it is, because they all just blend together. 
66. I'm practically convinced that my little brother is gay. But I always get in trouble for voicing that opinion. 
67. I love to cook. Anything. I am always up for a challenge. 
68. I'm not a very good liar, and I'm okay with that. 
69. I have somewhat of a dirty sense of humor, I especially enjoy That's What She Said jokes. 
70. I often feel like I have no one to turn to, but I know I do, I just feel like they don't want to listen to me complain and be upset. 
71. I am a Notre Dame Football fan, even though I am Mormon and I live in Arizona. 
72. I have never snuck out. 
73. I love to know how many friends I have on Facebook, not that Facebook is super important or anything.

78. I have a garbage bag under my bed FULL of stuffed animals, and I have no idea what to do with them. 
79. I love my best friend with all of my heart, I know that's a given, but I figured it should be somewhere on this list. 
80. When I blow dry my hair it gets really poofy, like afro status, so I never do it.

82. I  am very easily startled, so I jump at anything and everything. 
83. I really want to be a high school choir director. 
84. I watch really weird things on tv, like when they cut up the dead bodies to figure out how they died, its kinda odd considering the fact that I'm generally a happy person. 
85. I'm almost positive that I could not go a whole day with out smiling or laughing. Same thing goes for sarcasm. 
86. I like to wear brightly colored underwear because it makes me happy.

These Are Some Words to Live By :)



"When we concern ourselves more with others, there is less time to be concerned with ourselves! ... The more we serve our fellow men in appropriate ways the more substance there is to our souls. We become more significant individuals as we serve others. We become more substantive as we serve others- indeed, it is easier to 'find' ourselves because there is so much more of us to find." -Spencer W. Kimball

I stumbled upon this today and thought it was absolutely wonderful. Now I am leaving it for who ever happens to stumble upon this blog of mine :)

Oh New Years Eve :)

2010 was pretty good to me. I graduated from high school, became a legal adult, tried my hand at higher education, and got an amazing bestie who I would be lost without :) I'm glad a good year went out with an even better bang last night.
New Years Eve is an awesome time for pyro's like me :) We get to light things on fire, and watch them spit out more fire and blow up! Besides getting to spend time with family and friends, which is always a plus, playing with lighters is always the way to go.... even if you get burned by sparklers :) I gotta say, if 2011 is anything like last night, then its bound to be one rockin' year!! Only thing that would have made it better was to have the lovely best friend with me. But I'm glad she got some probably much needed time with her man :)






Here's to 2011! Do good things to me!!


Dec 29, 2010

I have GOT to find something to do with my life

So, deciding not to go back to school next semester has done a couple things for me. 
#1. I get to spend some time with my family and friends that I love so much.
#2. It gives me the opportunity to work for a while so that I can pay for at least the next semester myself.
#3. It hasn't even been that long and I'm already bored out of my mind. 

So, what is gonna happen whilst looking for a job?? Probably not that much, considering everyone else either has a job or goes to school. Maybe I should have decided to stay?? Who knows anymore?? Cause its definitely not me. 

And to top it all off..... its raining today.... So I can't even go outside to try to entertain myself....Great
Hmmmph. Hopefully things will start to look up, or at least give me something to do besides make a blog post everyday. 

Dec 28, 2010

Haven't laughed this hard all by myself in a while :)

So I was perusing the internet, and stumbled upon a blog that eventually led me to http://whenparentstext.com/....... I was laughing pretty dang hard sitting on my bed all by my lonesome, I probably sounded pretty crazy, but I had a good time with it :) 

Here are some of the ones that I found most amusing:
(This is one I might get from my mom)
( I laughed so hard at this one!!)
(I kinda want one of these :P )

Next Duct Tape Project!!!


This is what I want to make next..... A duct tape jacket!!! It's probably gonna be almost or just as expensive as buying a normal jacket, but it won't have been made my me, and it won't be made out of duct tape!! :) 

If you weren't aware, I absolutely LOVE duct tape :) I love making wallets out of it! And all of my inside jokes with the best friend were written on duct tape and hung on the wall of our dorm room, so that makes it even better..... We have had lots and lots of fun with duct tape :) My most recent wallet is made of zebra stripe duct tape and has a teal lining :) its pretty sweet, if I do say so myself......and I DO!! lol

Dec 18, 2010

Home!!!

Well I'm finally home for Christmas, and I'm so glad to be back with my awesome family. I'm definitely gonna miss being down in Thatcher, not necessarily going to class and being in the library trying to do homework, but all the really fun people that are down there. But I am going to enjoy being home for a while until I figure out what my next move is. Hopefully it won't be long until I can figure out what I need to be doing for school, that will help me get through all the classes I have to take. 

Christmas is in a week!!! I'm pretty excited, even though I don't really want or need anything, its still really exciting! My uncle who is living in Japan is going to come down, so I'm pretty excited to see him :)


Dec 11, 2010

Well, I didn't think it would go like this.

The semester is over (except for finals). Its kinda weird to think that I won't be living in this crazy little 
college town anymore. School didn't go as well as planned this semester, if it did, I would be getting A's or B's in all of my classes and I would end the semester with all the credits I had planned on getting. Here is what actually went down; tried to study, and epically failed. I haven't been able to focus to save my life lately. I guess that's just what happens to first semester freshman, I just didn't find that balance that most people do. 

School has never really been my thing, but I have always been able to somehow pull it out ya' know?? I can't really help but feel just a little defeated. It never even crossed my mind that I wasn't ready to handle this, all my friends have been able to adjust to this crazy college lifestyle, why haven't I?? I guess this is just the way it has to go for me.... I just have to make it a little harder on myself. I wish it didn't have to be this way, I don't really feel like I have time to waste. I know I have things to do, and I don't really want to postpone them, just because I'm not ready. Hmmmmm.... guess I just have to let the Lord do his thing. I wish I could get like a program, or maybe a play book; just something to give me a little heads up on what's coming next. 

Deuces Thatcher. Make sure you keep my friends safe while I'm gone.
