Day 89

The Train Game!
Moe, Kellie, and I played Ticket to Ride tonight. The first game, I blew the girls out of the water! I was rockin! At that moment, I decided I loved the game. I guess I should have played more often on Sundays when Alma brought it over.

Day 88

It was a little bit warmer today. It actually rained sometimes. It would rain, snow, rain, etc. It was more like falling sludge. My car leaks a little bit. Because of the constant precipitation falling, there's a nice little accumulation of water in my car. It was even dripping on me :(

Day 87

Today was not as productive as yesterday. I woke up with an excruciatingly painful headache in my eyelids. I got ready... and if I do say so myself... looked fabulous! When I got home, my headache was still making me suffer. I didn't really want to do anything. Both my lunch and dinner consisted of eating this container of mini cookies. I think there was an orange thrown in there somewhere too...

Day 86

I got home from work around 3. Then I spent the rest of the day by myself in my apartment. It's surprising how much you can get done when you're home alone all day. This is the cleanest my half of the bedroom has been ever! ..while at this apt. It can be done! I also re-alphabetized my movies and organized them. I worked out a little. I threw together a conglomeration of food for my dinner, and you know what? It was fantastic! I never cease to amaze myself!

Day 85

Dad has been playing with his birds all weekend! Donovan and Yuko brought their little parakeet over for a play-date and sleepover with Dad's cockatiels. Everyone had fun watching the birds.

Day 84

Merry Christmas!
Reuben, my brother and best artist I know, painted this for Jared. Those little raindrops are little guitars. All guitars in this painting are ones that Jared owns! Awesome.

Day 83

Merry Christmas Eve!
Dad and I went on another adventure today. We drove up to Park City so Dad could get another bird cage. The higher up the mountain we got, the more snow there was.... and the more sun!!

Day 82

Merry Christmas Adam!
Dad and I went on a super-long drive to Tremonton today. The reason for this drive... Dad decided he needed to buy these birds. 3 new little Cockatiels. Mom was not happy.

Day 81

I drove home to Sandy for the Holidays... ok.. just Christmas. I got home and had a parcel waiting for me under the tree! It was my itouch!!! Merry Christmas to me thanks to Costco giftcards from work and me spending only $46!!! Best deal ever!

Day 80


Woke up this morning, getting ready for work, look outside and see the large snowflakes falling from the sky. I'm running a little late. I tried backing out of my parking spot, and crappy! I'm stuck! Couldn't go forward, couldn't go backward. I'm supposed to give a friend a ride to work, but that's not gonna happen. I'm supposed to go to work... that's not gonna happen either. Luckily, a little family walked by and asked if I needed a shovel. Yes. The man came back a bit later and shoveled out my car.... well, enough so that I could pull back into my parking spot. Looks like I'm staying home from work today!

Day 79

After you paint your nails, the day comes when they start chipping away. These chipped pieces then get snagged in, pull, and rip out your hair. I'm not okay with this. That's when the commencement of peeling the nail polish off begins... and you get these results. Needless to say, I decided to just remove all the polish and start anew.

Day 78

Christmas Party take 2. Went to 9 am church, tried to keep my eyes open after about 4 hours of sleep. Never have I felt that my eyeballs were lit in flames burning as intensely as I did during church. Had another Christmas party. Dad threw out some trash.... but I rescued them.
Sunday, December 19, 2010

Day 77

A Christmas party! Cutest elf I've ever seen. After our Perry Christmas party, I went on a triple date that Julienne set me up on. First off, best blind date I've EVER been on. We went ice skating, I didn't fall, my skates cut my leg, we got hot chocolate at the "Little Chocolatiers" place 40 minutes after they had closed, we watched Chocolat, and I even took a little mini nap! Quality night.
Saturday, December 18, 2010

Day 76

Happy Birthday party for Moe!!! We always have the best kinds of parties! Too bad Moe wasn't dressed up as a Pirate-Giraffe-Birthday Princess all night.

Day 75

I went to Borders to get a planner today. First of all, their planner selection sucks. But look at this awesome hot pink Christmas tree in their foyer! They have 2.... I bet if I just grabbed one and kinda ran out the door.... they'd never miss it.

Day 73

Kellie tried making rice how she did in Hong Kong. Obviously it didn't work...
Tuesday, December 14, 2010

Day 72

For FHE, we decorated these delicious sugar cookies that Moe made. K-Ro thought it would be funny to stick a knife loaded with blue frosting in my mouth. I don't suggest eating straight frosting often. It's not that delicious.

Day 71

video
Loving Moe's friends, Chad, Leigh, and their cute baby girl. They stayed the weekend and brought Just Dance 2! I LOVE this game!!! Honestly, who doesn't love this game? We even got some of the girls' Home Teachers to dance. We need this game. Our life is not complete without it.

Day 70

Saturday is a wondrous day! I slept in. It was fabulous... except I woke up with a headache and it stayed ALL day! I also had to go to work from 2-8 pm. Not thrilling. It's super slow and it just annoys me when I get a call. About an hour into my shift, I messaged the guy responsible for sending people home early and let him know I would be glad to go if he needed to send someone. He didn't take the bait.
The lights at work are motion-sensored, so if no one moves much, the lights shut off. Yes, I was sitting at my desk and the lights turned off! It was already dark outside, so I'm now sitting in pitch black. I scooted my chair out... still no lights. Scooted a little further... no lights. I started waving my arms around like a crazy person... and then they turned on!
I decided to see about the "Go Home Early" list, but the guy had been gone almost an hour. I figured he was at dinner. An hour later, I checked and he was STILL gone! I decided to chance it and message him. Wonder of wonder! He was there!!! I asked if I could go early, and he said yes! I was so excited.. almost disbelieving! Pretty sure he was amused at how excited I got. I left almost 2 hours early, went home, went shopping, and bought some Christmas presents!!

Day 69

I hung out with Keagan, Tashie, Ethan, and Daelin tonight so Alma and Beckie could go to a work Christmas party. We had lots of fun! I'm basically the coolest aunt anyone could have. We watched movies, colored, ate pizza, and yes... I drew on Daelin's feet. Sorry Alma and Beckie if he starts thinking it's ok to draw on people... Their Christmas lights are on too!
Friday, December 10, 2010

Day 68

I worked today. blah. I got home and made a cream cheese chicken deliciousness soup! You know what, I'm a great cook! My future husband/family is seriously lucky! Annie, Cheri, Julia, and I (The Cosmetology Girls) got together for one of our mini reunions. We had a fun little potluck dinner and caught up on each others' lives. I miss these girls. Another night that I built up my abs laughing.
Thursday, December 9, 2010

Day 67

Tonight was my Nuskin Christmas party that Matt, Spencer, Kellie, and I went to. Brian Regan came and was hilarious!! Later that night, us girls were sitting around chatting and decided to go wrangle the elusive unicorn for Kellie. We went to McDonald's around 1:30-2 am to see if they had the Keroppi watch. Kellie's been to 7 different McDonald's to find this watch. This location had 3 left! We got them. Kellie was very happy.

Day 66

Sometimes my bedroom explodes... this is even after a bit of cleaning...
The cause: I couldn't find my black cardigan and was running late to get to work. I searched everywhere! After work, I found my black cardigan.... it was hanging up with my blue shirts...
Tuesday, December 7, 2010

Day 65

Happy Birthday Angela!
We had fabulous cardboard masks (that cut my eyeballs), Captain Planet rings, way cool birthday candles, and rock-solid abs from laughing soo hard! We also went to see "Tangled." Way cute movie! Loved it! Pascal, the chameleon, is my favorite.
Monday, December 6, 2010

Day 64

Temple Square Lights!!
Jeff, Ben, Peter, Angela, and I went to look at lights. As awesome as Christmas lights are... this was ten times better. Brooke sent me some life-changing cardboard glasses that make each Christmas light look like a colored snowflake!!! Pretty sure I wore these glasses the whole time. oh p.s... this red-orange sparkle tree is my absolute favorite! I get a picture with it every year.

Day 63

BYU 92nd Ward Talent Show!

Saturday, December 4, 2010

Day 62

K-Ro, Kellie, Moe, and I went to see Burlesque tonight. We dressed up in our heels and went out on the town. The movie was awesome and we all loved it. Afterwards, we came home and danced in our high heels and crazy outfits. The term "burlesqued" is now often used when referring to this method of dancing in our apartment.

Day 61

I sometimes slack on taking pictures just because sometimes nothing cool happens. But look at this cute owl! It's the tag on my new jammies. It made me soo happy when I first found it. What a surprise!

Went to the store with K-Ro to buy a $7 item... I left after spending $122..... woops.

Day 59

It's Christmas-time!!! Time to trim the tree! Our tree was already up. Our lights were already on our tree. It looked naked, and that just wouldn't do. So I put up the ornaments!!! and then all us sickies proceeded to lounge, watch a few movies, and story time!!! Yup. I told K-Ro, Moe, and Beth most of my hilarious/embarrassing stories. Wow they know a LOT about me now! We had an awesome conversation and there was quite a bit of laughing involved.
Tuesday, November 30, 2010

Day 58

I love my duucks. I love my ducks!
Peter is the coolest person I know. Thanksgiving break was rather great. When everyone got back to Provo, Petey brought over some prodigious "Oregon Duck" T-shirts for Angela and I.
We love them.

Day 57

I bought some awesome jam jams during the Black Friday sales. They're satin!!! I've never had satin jammies, and I LOVE them! Tonight was my first night with satin jam jams..... life-changing event. oh and it snowed a lot today. I love it when the snow falls, but I really detest driving in it.
Sunday, November 28, 2010

Oh fabulous Saturdays! Went to Hill Air Force Museum for the first time EVER with Mom, Dad,
Chris, Gabby, Max, and Morgan. I found an airplane with a QP! It's MY plane! Ya Ya!!

Day 55

It's that time of year... Black Friday! Beckie and I have our annual tradition of going shopping. This year, Wal Mart's movie deals started at midnight! So we braved the crowds and set out. It was the most terrible Black Friday experience I've had. Everyone was packed around the DVDs like sardines. I couldn't see the movies or move my body an inch in any direction, and I was starting to feel a bit of anxiety. I didn't care about the movies anymore. I just wanted to get out of there. After we made our Wal Mart purchases, we had 3 hours to kill before Target opened, so we went home and played Super Mario! We passed 5 levels (1 level twice) only to find out it doesn't save any of your work until you beat the castle. We were a bit upset when we found out. Then we headed off Target for their 4 am opening. We got everything we needed there, including hat/glove combo for my nephew who's sporting them fabulously. We waited in a forever long line for an hour-ish. We got home at 6 am. I talked to my Mom for an hour, who had gotten up to go to work, and then I went to bed at 7 am. I slept until noon, but woke up about every hour due to a text message, a phone call, being hot, and a screaming child... twice. I couldn't sleep anymore. I just had to get up and face the turmoil caused by rambunctious nieces and nephews.

Day 54

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
I love this holiday! You have an excuse to engorge yourself with all sorts of delicious food! I don't like yams. However, Julienne and Jared made yams that were great! They didn't taste like yams. Instead, they tasted like coconut! ...thanks to the can of coconut milk they dumped in... I also had a piece of peanut butter pie. Oh it was good, but literally, it was JUST peanut butter and cream cheese. WAY too rich. I would have much rather enjoyed putting a dollup of coconut cream pie on my tongue and savoring every bit of that!
It's always a great day even without the food. All the family got together. Gabriel, Chris, and their super cute little boys.. one of which was the first time I got to see him.. came into town for the holiday weekend. I cut my sister's and my niece's hair. We played Just Dance and Super Mario on the Wii. We played the piano. Basically we had an awesome time.
Shout out to Brooke... Happy Birthday!!
Thursday, November 25, 2010

Day 53

Ethan had to get his "5-year-old shots" today. On their way back from the Doctor's office, they took a pit-stop to buy Cheez-its. They came home with the Scrabble Cheez-its, and I found a "Q!" Any day that I find a "Q" anything is a happy day. Why don't they have more? When you do find one, it's even a higher quality because all the effort that would have gone into making thousands of that letter all went into the one "Q" that they produced. Yup. That's how it is.

Day 52

Reports said today was going to be a HUGE blizzard. Biggest one Utah's seen... EVER! I had been debating coming home to Sandy today so because of this big storm that was on it's way, I had to make my decision real fast. In my packing haste, I threw a lot more clothes than needed into my bag, I left my phone charger on my shelf, and I forgot to get my turkey out of the freezer!
~Mr. Norbest, I wanted to eat you tomorrow!~
I made it home safely and shortly after, Chris, Gabby, Max, and Morgan made it home. Just in time! It started snowing... a LOT. This ^^^ much. Too bad the snowman in our front yard is kinda dying...
Tuesday, November 23, 2010

Day 51

My keys went missing! I got home Sunday night and started putting some of my stuff away. I put my sweater back in my sweater box and thought to myself, "Self, you should check to make sure nothing else fell in the box. Nah." Then I shoved it back under my bed. The next morning, I was searching frantically for my keys. I had to go to work! So I grabbed my spare key, ran out the door, and hoped my roommates didn't lock the door!
When I got home, the door was unlocked! I checked EVERYWHERE for my keys! I looked all day in any spot I could think of! Right before FHE, I figured the one place I hadn't looked was in my sweater box. I pulled it out, and found my keys!!!! I should have checked there in the first place!

Day 50

I woke up this morning to a snow covered world. I got a ride to church and didn't have to use my car until later when I went to go Visiting Teaching. I was running a little late and had to scrape my car. My scraper is in my trunk somewhere.... I think. My trunk doesn't have a light in it, so I couldn't find it. I COULD find my windshield wiper blade (in it's carton waiting for someone to replace it for me), and so I used my windshield wiper carton to scrape the ice off my car. Didn't work too well. Good thing my defroster works!!
Sunday, November 21, 2010

Day 49

Christmas is an awesome time of the year. I love Christmas! I love Christmas decorations! I love Christmas decorations that you make yourself! I made this wreath last year and it's great. Last year for Christmas decor, I also had a TON of ornaments hanging from the ceiling. I think all the pictures of how cool it was were deleted though!
I went on a super fun date tonight where we bought Christmas decorations to decorate Peter, Paul, Jeff, and Ben's apartment, and we made delicious pies. Peter and I were in charge of the ceiling and lights. First off, don't buy Christmas lights from Dollar Tree. They're not very long. They also might give you white lights when the box says "multi." Oh and you may also get a strand that just doesn't work.
We also bought ornaments to hang from their ceiling! And it's mind-blowing. Naturally we have a green "O" for the Oregon Ducks. Their apartment is now on the Parade of Apartments list for Christmas decor. Yup. We're that good.
Saturday, November 20, 2010

Day 48

I was so tired today. After 3.5 hours of sleep, I was barely hanging on. Work was surprisingly slow, so I offered to go home early if they needed any volunteers. They had me do call-outs instead! Ugh. I just wanted to go home and sleep, but they wouldn't let me! When I got home from work, I turned the TV on to relax and snooze. Lo and behold.... the Snorks were on!!!! I haven't seen this show forever and no one I talk to has ever heard of it! This definitely made my day!
Friday, November 19, 2010

Day 47

Harry Potter 7-Deathly Hallows-Part 1!!!!!!
Midnight showing! Wha-what??
We had an absolutely fabulous Harry Potter group! We had lots of treats! Elyse brought her interactive Mr. Potato Head lunch box full of goodies! We watched a Jedi duel a member of the Slytherin House, and then the movie began. The movie was great, but now we have to wait for part 2!

Day 46

Angela and I went to The Patroni's Semi-Final Ultimate Frisbee game. The team they played were animals! and we're pretty sure the frisbee was lined with magnets.... as were their hands! Because Angela and I are the coolest people ever, we bought their favorite Little Debbie treats and paid the fellas a visit after their game. Wow they're lucky to have friends like us!
Wednesday, November 17, 2010

Day 45

Had the day off of work! Nice. Surprisingly, I was running around doing a lot of stuff. I did all my laundry and washed my sheets. I didn't have time to make my bed, but I had to leave! I went to Julienne's bridal shower and had a festive little time. It took me an hour to drive home, so I had a lot of time to sit and think. I thought about lots of stuff. I thought about how I was real tired and still had to make my bed. I got home, and saw this beautiful sight! Nice, tightly made bed. Thanks Bed Fairy!

Day 44

I was just buying nailpolish with K-Ro and Moe when my manager called me. "You've been such a good employee, we just wanna reward you and let you know you're appreciated. We have 4 tickets to the Jazz game tonight. Do you wanna go and bring 3 of your friends?"
"Uh, ya!"
Alicia and I were set to go to the game, but I had 2 more tickets! So, Jake and Brian came with us! $47/ticket, Free parking, first Jazz game: Priceless.

Day 43

Watched this Sunday night... "Ska-doosh."
Sunday, November 14, 2010

Day 42

Drove out to Salt Lake with my Mama. We went to a little boutique and talked with the sweetest gay guys who were throwing out compliments to me. I loved it! We went to a fashion show that Julienne was in. We went to Panda Express. I got the Kobari Beef, which was super delicious, but there were mushroom halves in it. I tried a mushroom. I popped it in, took a couple chews, and promptly spit it out. Still don't like the mushrooms.
Saturday, November 13, 2010

Day 41

"Sink Me!"
Went to another Patroni ultimate frisbee game. It was so cold I literally couldn't feel my toes. I was even wearing 2 pairs of socks! I made me some delicious Pumpkin Spice hot cocoa and ran over to watch Scarlet Pimpernel. On the way over, I was running across the street, and it spilled :( What was left in the cup was delicious though! Scarlet Pimpernel: great stuff... except I totally fell asleep at one point and twitched awake! awesome.

Day 40

Another fabulous day off work! Started the morning off by going running with Kalyn. After we got ready, we went out to buy my rockin' nailpolishes! They're super sparkly. My favorite, that is on my fingernails right now, is called Sparklicious. On my toes, is Extra-va-vaganza! After our outing, we went up to campus, and look what we found in the children's section at the library! Is he dead? No. He's just sleeping, but I was laughing soo hard when we stumbled across this. Come on kid... at least find a comfortable couch or chair! The floor?? Amateur.
Thursday, November 11, 2010

Day 39

Quite frankly, this was not a super exciting day. I made it to K-Ro's facebook status though! Awesome.
The quote is, "I love water. You know what else I love? Chocolate. You know what else I love? Sparkles. All kinds. You know what else I love? Boys. No, MEN."
hmm... I think I like me.
