What I don’t like Mondays


I have a (wonderful) friend Lauren, she came to visit this weekend bringing along her super awesome boyfriend Gene. We were in the car when she mentioned she hadn’t posted her “What I like Wednesdays” in a week or two. It became a topic and we all decided she should be more realistic and do a “What I don’t like Mondays” both EverSoLightly and I agreed we would start it as well, so she wasn’t alone!

So here is my first “What I don’t like Monday”

Goodbyes. In the past week and a half I’ve had to say goodbye to a lot of people, things, and even for almost 3 weeks, my health! I do not like goodbyes, I didn’t like having to say good bye to my best buddies Drew, Kieran, and Sarah and I didn’t like saying goodbye to my boss when they left town for a month. I had to say goodbye to Lauren and Gene this weekend when they left for Ellensburg, and I had to say goodbye to my family when they headed back home. So to go along with my lack of love for Mondays, I also don’t like goodbyes. They leave me feeling bored, lonely, and they make me come back to the realization that vacations and good times don’t last forever! Enjoy them while you can!

“Jump balls?! I love jump balls!”


I feel like all I do is work work work work work, and before anyone comments about that being life as an adult or anything remotely along those lines, I know. That doesn’t change how I feel though. Working 12 hour shifts, followed by 10 hour shifts = not fun. Yesterday I worked from 8:30 to 7:30, Today 8:30 – 8:30 tomorrow 8:30 – 7:30. I feel like I don’t ever get to go on a real vacation. Yes, last weekend we went to Oregon, to say goodbye to Ellee May ( 😦 I’m still not ready to let go of her.) and to see family of course. But that’s not a real vacation. Not a real break. I doubt one will happen anytime soon. Especially once school starts back up. I LOVE my job, I love just about everything dealing with what I do, but that doesn’t change how I feel. sometimes I feel over-worked, and stressed. This week is one of those weeks. little to no breaks or days off, and the time I do have off theres no one to hang out with or do anything with 😦

I’ll get over it. I always do.

P.S. Title = a Quote from my youngest nephew last weekend at a basketball game hahahaha oh man. Oh also, that same little boy (he’s not so little now though) took this photo!

EDIT: After posting this entry, wordpress sent me the following video:

It was a nice surprise!

I have decided…


That even if this means I can’t do anything else exciting this year, I want to go to the beach with my brother and his wonderful mateys, our Mom, and EverSoLightly (wordpress won’t let me link to his blog right now). After watching , and looking at photos from the time we went for my 21st birthday makes me want to re-live the amazing time we had.

I truly am blessed to have them in my life, I love my family so much and am so proud of how far we all have come over the past years. Watching the end of that video “I love you, C…” “You too!” “I love you, C” “You too” I love you, Collin” “You too.” Reminded me of our most recent visit to see them, we walked in the door and the first person to greet us was Q… then right as G was about to hug me C pushed his way in and tackled me. So the first thing I said “You love me” his response? “nope!” Later that day I went into the younger boys’ room and saw this

on C’s desk. He walked in right as I was looking at the photo smiled at me and I said “SEE! YOU DO LOVE ME! You have a photo of us on your desk!” his response? “No, I just don’t get to see you that often…” HA kid! I knew it! It’s okay – your secret is safe with me 🙂

You’re a weak infant spinner girl…


Hello fellow internet users. I would like to let all of you know that my “website” is up and running at full speed with a new beautiful layout decorated and made possible by yours truly. Please go check it out and leave your feedback on the contact page. Basically ALL the pages are up and running except the “home” page.  Also, I’ve uploaded new photos to the gallery 🙂 More coming soon too! So bookmark this link and check back for goodies! (This site is mainly for my close friends and family members, the rest of you may not find it very interesting 🙂 You may click HERE to visit the site, or go up to the “network” tab towards the top of this page, and you’ll find the link there!

In my last couple posts I mentioned some good times we’ve had celebrating my birthday and hanging out with friends. I’ve since discovered that recently (in the past year at least) Facebook is now allowing people to embed videos! YAY! Sooo what does that mean? Well for most of you nothing, but for people like my wonderful big brother, it means I can share some of the awesome videos I’ve mentioned! YAY…haha. I’ve posted them on the “stuff” page of the website mentioned in the above paragraph.

Last Sunday (a week ago yesterday) Mitchell and I went to the local mall with our semi-busy-non-existent roommate to bond like we use to. We stumbled across a (well what we thought) ordinary photobooth, which turned out to be a photobooth extraordinaire of the year 2010. I guess now days they include a “password” and website where you can ACTUALLY download your photos and watch a video of yourselves posing for each photo. Seems like they’re trying to make it worth the full $5.00 we paid, which is actually pretty dang cool if you ask me!! I went exploring on their website today and (obviously) watched our rather ridiculous video and downloaded the photos. I think we may have to go back again soon, its kinda fun to do random things like that!

Tomorrow we’re going to the beach with our friend Jessica, and I’m really looking forward to that, but in order to survive tomorrow I need sleep. So goodnight world. May you all be nice and cool, instead of roasting like we are 😦
