Getting Together With Old Friends

We all know the saying about how true friends
{the funny thing is I can't think of the exact quote right now and it is bugging me!!}
Before my husband and I got married we had friends!
{another funny thing because now we don't hang out with friends!}
We would hangout all the time
We had 'names' for people we thought were creeps
We had inside jokes
We had girls nights where we would get our toes done or go out to dinner
We made silly music videos to our favorite songs
We had so much fun!

Now that we are married off and have out own 'lives' it's hard to get together.
Every so often when we do get together and go out to dinner!
We chat it up and have so much fun!
I love having friends I can talk to and hang out with!
And It feels we still see each other all the time because we just click right back together!!

These are the friends I can truly count on and go to if I have questions or just need someone to talk to! 
I love true friends!



very bad quality but I think you get the jist! 
(we were dressing up... not our real attire!)

No I did not ask permission from either parties to use these pictures! But they are great so I hope they don't mind!

What I Wore {It's my Half Birthday!}

Today it is officially my half birthday!
I've always wanted to celebrate my half birthday only because my real birthday is 2 days after Christmas, so people tend to forget.
---------------------------------------------------------------
When I was younger I use to pay every kind of sport! 
I grew up with two younger brothers! What do you expect?!
So this post it in memory of my past sporty life!
I now sit in a receptionist desk or cubicle all day.
Drastic change I know!
Sports are so much fun! 
Especially when it's your turn to serve and if you make this point your team wins!!
There is so much adrenaline and it gets your heart going!
What sports did you play?!

I Am A Slacker!

I recently have become a blog slacker
I find my time being put doing the following;
 writing letters, hanging out with the hubs, making sure the house is clean, job searching, trying to come up with ideas for headbands, finishing orders, trying to keep up with my other 3 blogs, working, is my list over yet?
Anyways I know we all are busy and we all just want to relax and have fun!
and last night was no different!
I decided "hey, I can't neglect my super sweet husband and say no to watching a movie with him.
Especially The Count of Monte Cristo."
Very good movie for sure!
So that is what I did last night,
I knew I needed to blog, I needed to clean the house but I had better plans!




Although I truly cannot handle the first part of the movie it is pretty good! (:

Hello lovely blogging world! I am back and ready to talk!

I am so grateful for the time we were able to spend together! 
I know he is going to be a great missionary! 


Here is one of the many pictures we took !

What I Wore

Hello people! 
How is your weekend going so far?! 
Let me just say mine has been emotional, tiring, and fun all at the same time! 
So weird!
I know I haven't done a WIW post in a long time with all my busyness so here I am FINALLY 
with a new WIW! And I really like the top! 
Let me just tell you I am a bargain shopper. 
I feel bad if I buy any piece of clothing that is over $15.
So sometimes shopping with me isn't fun. 
Lucky me went to Target and got a great bargain!!  
Ladies, they have a great clearance selection and I recommend looking around!


(I like this picture because it makes my legs look skinny!)

Great question,  maybe blue because it can be viewed in different ways.

Also, in the fall it is my 3 year anniversary so I am excited for that one!



{six} do you have any family traditions for the 4th of July?
Kind of, usually we just watch fireworks with the hubs fam. 
My fam isn't much for fireworks, You've seen them once you've seen them a thousand times!


{seven} what’s something new that you’ve tried in the past few months?
Staying up late! I love it! I stay up late on my days off and get stuff done!

{eight} what is the perfect a/c temperature?
I'd say 75! 

{nine} what was the last movie you saw in the theater?
Thor at the ipic.

I can't think of just one song! I LOVE music!

But here are my Q's and A's for today!!

Left overs. What a bore!

A Charming Little Man

Without exposing too much information I wanted to leave you all with this wonderful poem. 

-----------------------------------

"Two little hands,
Two little feet.
A tiny little boy so soft and sweet.
He came to earth in the usual way.
But life was short God called him away

Two little feet 
Too little time, 
Two little hands that I held in mine.
Never to run and never to play or to be curious 
in a little boy way. 

Two little hands, 
Two little feet.
Ever so loved and
Ever so sweet.
Beyond the clouds,
Beyond the sunset.
These hands and feet had heavenly concept."

-----------------------------------

In loving memory of Chase.
06-02-06 - 10-31-06
So grateful for eternal families. 



They Say We are Too Young, But They Did it Too!

How old were you when you got married?
I was 19 almost 20.
My mom was 21.
My MIL was 18. 
How old were your grandparents when they got married?
Probably not much older I'd say.
Maybe they were even younger!
Then why does everyone say we are too young?
They did it, so why can't we?


I continue to have a problem with people telling me I am too young to be married.
So, when people tell me this I ask them when they got married.
Many of my answers are people getting red in the face saying the same age.
I know times have changed and the world is much different now.
But that shouldn't matter.

I also wonder about the children question.
I have had all of these statements said to me several times
You don't have kids right? 
You are too young to have kids!!
You better not have kids yet! You need to wait!
Please don't have kids because I don't want to be a great grandma. 

Is it my fault that I am growing up and they are getting old?


Just a little something to think about.

You'd Think My Life Was One Big Vacation

My friends I am going somewhere again. 
Right now I truly know what you are thinking. 
What is this girl complaining about? 
She is hardly ever at work. 
{Actually I have never taken this much time off in the whole 2 and a half years I have worked here.}
But, I know if I don't go on this little trip I will regret it. 
You see, my younger brother is going on a mission!
When I say younger I mean younger, not smaller as I seem to be the shortest child in my family even though I am the oldest. 
So obviously this trip is not going to be as much fun as Mexico because My Mom, Dad and I will be dropping my brother off at the MTC. 
If you are not familiar with the meaning of MTC head over to this link
My brother will be a full time missionary and will be serving the people of the Dominican Republic.

My favorite missionary quote is:
Missionary: Someone who leaves their family for two year so that other can be with their families for eternity. 


It is hard to believe that I wont see or talk to my brother for two whole years. 
{except for letters and a call on Mothers Day and Christmas}

The hubs, my other younger brother {once again younger not smaller}and Mike's Dog will be staying home. I think they are kinda excited to just have a boys week! (:

So wish me luck because there are going to be lots of tears!
Oh and don't worry, I will post so pictures!

My Adventure in Paris

Let me start off by saying this,
These pictures of pictures of pictures, why? 
Because when we were robbed my Paris memory card was in my camera! 
Yeah made me MAD!! 
But thankfully I got some printed! 

Graduated '07.
Nana {Grandma} asked me where I wanted to go for my graduation trip.
I chose Paris of course! 
So I was the lucky 18 year old girl who traveled to Paris with her Nana!
Let me just say we had so much fun!!

There was so much to do in that beautiful city! 
I learned my way around pretty fast! 
Tourist even thought I was a local!!
Not because I knew my way around but they said I had great fashion and walked like a model...
Boy did that boost my confidence. 
I sure would like to think so!
I love Paris and want to go back so bad! 
Lets take a look at some of my lovely pictures from the trip!


I don't believe I mentioned that our luggage was lost from Heathrow to Paris. Rather annoying and we had to go buy soap, tooth paste, and other things we couldn't carry on. 
Also this hair do and make-up is after a 13 hour flight so I think I look alright! (:


See those band aids on my feet?! 
I wasn't very smart and brought my high heeled flip flops... how dumb!
But I love the picture!



Arc de Triomphe on Ave Des Champs Elysees.


At Night the Eiffel Tower was so pretty!


He would only smile if you gave him money!


There are so many beautiful places in Paris, I'm telling you every picture I took looks like it belongs in a magazine! Love it!

Hopefully I will be able to get more pictures and download them a different way so the look real!!

Have you gone on a super fun trip outside the country?!
I wanna hear about it! 

Wee Bit Wednesday

{one} do you believe in ghosts? 

Nope.


{two} are you more of a talker or more of a listener? 

I am a listener, my husband always asks me why I don't talk more...I just don't!

{three} would you rather get up early or sleep late? 

It all depends on how late I stayed up. But usually I like getting up early. I have to for work so my body is just use to it. 

{four} if you could instantly become an expert at one type of dance, what type would you choose? 

I like hip-hop, I always wish I could move the way those dancers do!

{five} what's your favorite drink? 

My favorite drink is the double chocolaty chip from Starbucks. 
it is delish!



{six} if your house caught fire and you could only grab three things, what would they be? 

Computer tower because it has all our pictures in it. 
My Chase necklace.
and
Letters from our missionary brothers. 

{seven} if you could only visit one restaurant for the next five years, which would it be? 

Cheese Cake Factory... duhhh

{eight} who inspires you the most? 

Hard working people who have it all!



{nine} if you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? Shia Labeouf
Hillary Duff
{weird this rhymes}
Brittany Murphy
{even though she is dead}

{ten} sneakers or sandals? 
SANDALS! Especially if I just got my toes did!

What I Wore {Wednesday!}

This is the first time I can actually say this is what I wore Wednesday!
Not that I wore it all day because I had to wear my dismal work shirt that doesn't go with anything...
But after work I threw this lovely outfit on and said 
Ahhh Paris, man I want to go back so stinkin' bad! 

So at this location we went to the new bridge that is near our parents house. This bridge is such a sore thumb because it looks like it belongs in the ghetto and I assure you our parents don't live in the ghetto. But since the city decided to waste some money we decided we needed to at least walk the bridge once. This is when I decided it would make for a great WIW post! (:



Cardigan: Kohl's
Shirt: Boutique in Paris

Like my Reef Flips?!


So the hubs told me to put my arm around the cactus and I was very afraid that I would touch it and get stuck!

Also. the one problem with layered hair is you can't really braid your hair!
