Somehow, we always end up getting ourselves into some kind of trouble.....
Tuesday, September 28, 2010
So now that it has been well over a year that I have actually blogged, I figured it was due time. I can't believe how time flies and how much the Lord has blessed me in my life. I wish I knew really where to begin.
Starting with last June 2009, I ended up getting my lasik for my vision. It has been one of the coolest things ever, and to never have to wear contacts or glasses is honestly amazing. To those who have contemplated it, I 100% fully recommend it. That May I also have had my 5 year high school reunion and that was a blast too. I got to know some people on a different lever that I never got to know during school. After those things the rest of the year must not have been that big because I don't really remember anything happening on the unfortunate side.
So lets skip a few months and go straight to February 2010. One night I had a friend from high school text me and ask what I was doing for spring break. I had no idea because I have never been one of those who went anywhere cool for those fun holiday breaks. So Bryan entertained the idea to me of going to Moab with a very large group of friends. Him and some friends had went the year before and had an amazing time, so they decided to make it a tradition to go each spring break and make each one an epic adventure. So on March 15, 2010 I went to Moab with a group of 36 people and only knowing Bryan. I was nervous and a bit hesitant but knew that I would have a blast. We rented a house with 2 floors, and pretty much packed the place but it was so well worth it. We went to Delicate Arch, Corona Arch and who knows how many others :) Corona was the best though because we repelled off of the 160 foot arch straight down the middle. It was the most exhilerating feeling ever, if it hadn't been so windy and cold we would have probably done it a couple of times. During this trip I made some amazing friends and I know with out a doubt that me going on this trip was the work of the Lord. I had been praying for new friends and to find new peace in my lie.
So here are a few pictures from Moab.
I had just gotten hit with a snowball here......yes there was SNOW and SUN!!!
I was the only girl who hung upside down on the 160 foot arch, it was AMAZING

In February the customer service job I had been working for decided to cut some costs and lay me off (though had offered me to come back in April when funds start back up). Though this was a frustrating time it was almost a blessing and a relief because I had been wanting to quit that place for quite some time. This was on a friday that they had told me and had given me one week to hopefully find a new job. Well of course right after I found out I started talking around to possibly find good connections for a new job. I must say it is quite nice to have my sister pass the word because I immediately got a call from our good family friend Britt Terry. Britt's uncle had a business and was in need of somone for their COBRA department. I was given Dave's (the manager) number that next Monday, when I called him he asked me to come in for an interview
that day. On Tuesday he called me back and offered me the job and to start the next day. I can't explain how grateful I am for friends with connections and especially during times like these. All I can say is that I sure owe Britt some good babysitting jobs for his girls :D
Now that was February.....so in March, that was the GREAT month!!! I wont go into all the details but alot led up to knowing that it was my time to recieve my endowments. On March 14th I recieved my endowments in the Provo Temple. I'm so grateful for the knowledge of the Gospel and knowing that I can be with my family for eternity!!! :D
With my finances being stable in April I went out and bought a new couch and chair from RC Willy. Thankfully I had some tax refund money to help with that as well.
So here we are now in May and I feel like I'm getting back into my active self with the feeling that this is going to be one of those awesome summers. I decided to start up roller blading again but in order to do so I had to get one blades. The ones I had been using are literally from middle school, so I figured it was about time to get some new ones. So today was the day and I got some new ones that I got an awesome deal on and absolutely love them. I also have been picking up my guitar again and have been doing quite well and am loving my caliced fingers and I plan to keep it up (if I couldn't put enough and's in that sentence). I have tried to briefly cover the last few months in a nutshell and just to say that I'm doing great. I have an amazing family, I love the Gospel and I'm getting active again this summer and am absolutely loveing it. Oh I forgot to mention that I may be getting Lasik surgery this month too. I have an eye appointment next Monday to see if I am eligable for it (I'll let you all know how it goes). Next time I will try and post some pictures of my few adventures and my couches. Ta ta for now and thanks for actually finishing this post if you did :)

So plenty has happened and I'm sad to say that I should have been blogging the whole time but I didn't and now I can only put what I remember :( Though I will say another reason I was not blogging was because I had gotten my nails done (which I loved because they were so cute and made me feel girly) but they got in the way of EVERYTHING.....they drove me up a wall :) So I know I shouldn't have done it but I tore them off last night, I couldn't handle anylonger them getting in the way when I type, text, try to pick something up....or even try to pick a zit....HAHA!! So hence the reason I'm finally blogging hehe I can type now!!!!
So I don't get it.....guys that is.....So I started dating this guy, and when I found out he was a carpenter I asked him if he could help me with a project to make a new table top for my table (the one I had was a cheap top that got something on it and warped some of it...it looked absolutely horrible)....he said sure no problem. The next thing I know he brings over the table top....I couldn't believe it....it was beautiful and I couldn't have been more thankful that he did this for me. Though sad to say just after that I wasn't feeling that we were right for eachother and I broke it off....sound familiar? haha ya I know some of you are laughing because I break off every relationship I start....trust me know and sometimes I wonder if I'm going to be like 40 before I find my best friend. Oh well I'm thankful for the friends I have and the support of family!!!! Though there was one other really cool thing while I was dating this guy....he was a divorced daddy and so I would take my niece and nephew out with us to play with his son. One night we all came over and watched Terri's kids while they went out and his son got to play with our kids....and then on Jared's (the guy I was dating) birthday we all went out to Chucky Cheese and celebrated his birthday as well as his son's which was the week before. So of course Terri was loving me dating him because I took her kids out for fun nights....oh and another time I took Silver with me because we went bowling with his son so it was just fun for them to have play mates. Sorry Terri no more play dates :( So maybe this can be a test with other guys that they like it when I take your kids to play with us....how does that sound? ;)
this is the table that he made for me....its beautiful....I love it!!!
So I learned a new lesson about my little nephew Silver....he listens to EVERYTHING!!!!!!! So we are at my nieces 4th birthday party at a place called Kangaroo zoo (they have the big blow up slides and things that will wear out the kids for bed). Well it was getting close for the time for me to leave to go to school...though I decided to skip school so I could help my sister Terri with the rest of the party. So I'm sittin there talkin with Terri and the moms and I say to my sister "hey don't tell mom I'm skipping school to help you"....no problem right? Well I was later talking to my mom and had to confese and she said she knew....didn't think much of it right? Well I'm in the car the other night with my nephew and he goes "hey juju when you were at the party I told grandma you skipped school" wow I just about died so I called my sister just laughing and thinking what a little tattle tale.... So I'm talkin to Terri and she was just dying laughing and was like "oh my gosh I know, so we were just standing there with mom and silver turns around and goes Grandma juju skipped school for the party".....so word to the wise if you don't want it repeated.....DON'T let my sweet little silver listen in on your conversations....you little smart turkey!! :)

So my New Years Eve was absolutely AWESOME!!!!! Last year I hosted a new years eve party and it turned out awesome so I decided to do one again. I love it when you invite a bunch of people and only a certain amout come....Well this year I expected only so many to show and had about double show up. My house was so full that I had both couches filled, people on all the chairs, love sac and my floor was covered. I had about 26 people over at one time and just know that my little house doesn't hold ALOT of people lol. But anywho we had a blast and I was grateful that I was able to spend it knowing that I really did have a great 2008!!
TIME TO GET A TRIM!!!!!! So you think your hair doesn't grow very fast until you have short hair. Well I have not had the time to go get a trim nor the money, so I decided to give myself my own hair cut. All my roommates gave me the look of "you are RETARDED" but anyone who knows me knows that I will do what I want....so I did it :D Take a look and see what you think....I personally think I did GREAT!!!!

Here are the directions:
1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you.
It's actually pretty cool (and funny) to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. :) If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.
