Please take note to the following

So tonight I read this article
and it is so true!

I agree with all of these
plus I have a few of my own...

But I will bore you with those
some other time.

Click on the link above

More pictures

Meagan sent me these pictures from St Thomas just this past week.

They are from Halloween and from the day we left.

It's funny to think now how excited I was to leave,
Because I would give anything to be back there now.

With Brian and all of our stuff
Getting on the plane
And Meagan said to show whatever emotion we were feeling about leaving...

And Halloween was so much fun
I was Alice in Wonderland
Kassidy was Harry Potter
Meagan was an Indian Princess
And Cory and Joss were Missionaries
(hence the "arm distance" and "breaking rules" pictures)

we have become that family
that calls each other on the phone
instead of yelling
or getting off our butts to go talk to them...

and maybe this happened about 10 minutes ago...

Just MAYBE though!

I never told you my story

I just realized I never told you my story of why my hips hurt so bad!

I think it is pretty funny
so I hope you will too!

A few weeks ago a good friend sent me a text asking if I wanted to go for a four wheeler ride.
I love stuff like that so I said that sounded great!

Well when I got to his house he said we could take a four wheeler or the go-cart.
I had never been in a go-cart before
so I picked that one!

It was so much fun.
He is one of those guys that makes everything so fun,
and will just go kind of crazy with things,
but I know the whole time that even though he is driving
a little bit crazy,
I am perfectly safe.

Well we were a few miles out when we stopped for a minute
and he realized he didn't have his cell phone anymore!
Mine is a touch screen so I had left it at his house
so it wouldn't break.

We drove back and looked around for it
but couldn't see it so gave up and
hoped that it was just at his house.

We went back out and he let me drive a little and it was so much fun.
Then we started going off road a little bit
and decided to take this tunnel that goes under the freeway.

Well about 3/4 of the way through
the go-cart DIED!!!


So we pushed it back to the side we came in from
and all we could do was start walking home.

It was hilarious.

I had no problem walking back
(which was around 6 miles)
and it was the perfect chance to talk
and get to know each other better.

When we got to his home
we immediately got in the truck,
loaded up the four-wheeler on the trailer
and headed back to get the go-cart.

As soon as we got out of the truck where
the go-cart was I knew I was in trouble.

Side note: I have had bad hips for years.
When I use to dance I would have to have another girl stand on my legs to help pop them so I could do everything the way I was supposed to.
So why I didn't think a 6 mile walk over a
bumpy, rocky road with hills wouldn't affect them
I don't know.

Anyway the muscles cooled when I was sitting in
the truck and as much as it hurt
I was not about to admit that
I was DYING from pain!

So I was a trouper.
I helped unload the four wheeler
hooked up the cables so we could jump the go-cart
and walked along that bumpy road for a little bit all over again!

Then to top the evening off
we were spot-lighted by a cop from the freeway
and pulled over once we were back in town!

So yeah needless to say
It was a very eventful night!
But it was great!

I would do it all again,
even if it means I cant walk the next day!


I am the girl:
  • that will pick the accoustic version of a song over the real one every time
  • that gets bored of her hair so often that no one knows what my natural hair color is (not even me anymore! Although I think it is a light brown now...)
  • wears high heels 7 days a week, even if my feet are killing me, because I like how I feel in them
  • speaks her mind, good or bad, and I dont feel bad for that
  • will notice the song playing in a store, even if there are 50 other people talking around me
  • prefers Pepsi, but I will drink Coke just as easily
  • loves dressing up in dresses because it makes me feel girly and like I am back in time
  • wishes life was a Musical, because who doesn't want everyone to break into the perfect song and dance?
  • who doesn't enjoy hiking, but the mountains are my favorite place in the world
  • loves the sun, but hates what it does to my skin
and I love my life

Love this song

So lately I have been obsessed with
Eric Hutchinson.
I first saw him live when he opened for One Republic
January 2008.

I finally downloaded the full album last week,
and I have yet to take it out of my car.
It is so good!
And this song has been one of my favorites.

It is called
"You Don't Have To Believe Me"
and I think the lyrics are so good.

You don't have to believe me I'm just speaking my mind
you look lovely as always you get that all the time
you don't have to believe me when I tell you that i'm impressed
but you sure better believe me when I say you deserve the best

you don't have to believe me but i'm not gonna lie
i've seen all the attention you get from other guys
you don't have to believe me when i tell you i like your dress
but you sure better believe me when i say you deserve respect
it feels like nobody's on your side no access to your pride
you gotta learn to take control your whole body is a temple so
you've got a choice to make and your mind is what's at stake
so before we build this love please believe that you're good enough

you don't have to believe me but I'm not often wrong
they've been taking advantage and it's gone on too long
you don't have to believe me when we're dancing out on the floor
but you sure better believe me when i say you are worth much more


you don't have to believe me
but you sure better believe me when i tell you you're due for love

i don't want nobody else
and nobody else is gonna treat you the way they ought to
and that's what you deserve
if I could make you see it
so you can truly believe it
so you won't even need it
no, no, no, no, no, no, no

you don't have to believe me
and i continue on
you've still got the potential
that you've had all along

you don't have to believe me when you're shaking what you got
but you sure better believe me when i tell you your mind's what's hot.

Listen to the song here
sorry it is not the best quality!

A long time ago

I realized that I am not the best speller in the world.

Not sure when I first realized this
Maybe it was during 5th grade when my class
was using the 3rd grade spelling book.

Maybe it was earlier.

Either way I was bad then,
And things have not changed that much.

(Lets get something straight though
Every other subject, I was placed in the top class!)

Anyway today I realized all over again
that well
I suck at spelling.

So for future reference
If things on this blog are spelled wrong
You were warned.
And I make no further apologies for this!

I miss seeing this

and this

and this

and this!

The clouds down there were amazing.
And I really would love to be at the beach right now.
I knew I would miss this place,
just didn't realize it would be this bad..

St. Thomas, will you take me back?

(oh and PS-You can see my house in the 2nd picture)

Princess Lasertron!

Yesterday was a bad day

Work was super busy,
busy as in all 3 phone lines ringing
and I was the only person at the office!
Besides everything else that had to be done.

Then I also had a few personal issues,
that I wont bore you with all the issues
but lets just say it was to the point
that I was crying when I got home from work.

Then I saw a package on my bed.
And it made things so much better!

As many of you already know
I wear this hair piece all the time...
This beautiful and unique hairpiece was made by the
(also known as Megan Hunt)!

I have been following her blog for
just over a year,
and I never get tired of it!

She has one of the best eyes for details,
and has created an awesome company that
I am in love with!

Well back to my story...
I contacted her a few weeks ago
about making me some new hair pieces,
and they came yesterday!!!

I love, Love, LOVE them!

Peach, Lavender and Purple

Teal, Light Blue and Periwinkle

Black and Gray

It helped make my day better,
and eased the amount of
retail therapy I did as well!

Thanks again Megan!
You are awesome!

One day without shoes

Today Tom Shoes
(which I am obsessed with)
is holding their anual

This event is held anually to help people realize that the everyday tasks are so much harder when you dont have the comfort of shoes on your feet.

Unfortunately for me,
I have to work at Maurices for most of the day.
So I can only go barefoot for part of the day.
But I am wearing my Toms
to work to show my support!

If you dont know about Toms
One for One,
Read up on it here.

Show your support and go without shoes
even if it is only around your house
any little bit is showing your support!

So apparently...

I have issues with shipping and delivering services.
Last week UPS and I had problems.
This week it is the United States Post Office...again!

First let me just say, this is not the first time that I have not been the biggest fan of the post office.
It started quite some time ago. 
Dont believe me?
Heres a list to prove that they are dumb:
  • If my car is within 5 feet of our mail box, they wont stop to deliever the mail!  Even if it is not directly in front of it, and they have plenty of space to get to it, they wont! 
  • Every time I go in there to send something, this one lady treats me like I dont know anything.  She talks down to me, she glares at me through her glasses, the whole bit.  But the moment I go in there with my dad or brother or anyone else, she is all smiles and really helpful.  What the crap did I ever do to you lady?
  • The very first package my mom sent to St. Thomas took 23 days!  Seriously?  How does it take 23 days to get 1 package?  My roommates all got packages that were sent after mine, before me.
  • My friend sent me a Christmas package to St. Thomas.  He sent it on December 6th, it got to St. Thomas on January 18th.  I left St. Thomas on January 2nd.  Sweet thanks post office for sucking again!  Luckily Laura was so sweet and sent it to me in Utah, minus a few of the treats that had gone bad in the time it took to get to me in the first place.

Then today just added to the list.  I go there to mail 2 things.  Simple things that would take at the very longest 5 minutes.  When I get in there no one else is there.  In the time it took me to write down the addresses, 2 people were in line.  2 people no big deal right?  Wrong!  The other lady that works at the local post office is so slow that it took over 20 minutes to help these 2 women!  20 minutes!  One of them only had 1 item she was mailing!  Grrrr...

So basically thanks USPS for wasting my time
again and again and again!
