Every party has a pooper....

Thats why we invited you...party poooper!

Today I feel like complaining and since its Monday I feel as though it is the perfect day to rain on everybodys Happy Monday Parade...since there just shouldn't ever be a happy monday parade...or should there?...because then it might actually be happy?...hmm... but seriously you are on a huge high from the weekend and then all the sudden...BAM!..monday happens and it takes you by surprise!..

Anywho....

Pretty sure I have to worst luck ever...I followed the EXACT same car into lethbridge and then from lethbridge back home to Magrath today...ya ok whats the big deal you ask?....This lovely person (not even elderly by the way) decided it would be a good idea to drive 80...then...50...then...40...then...90...then.. ok you get the point....all the while I am STUCK behind them going completely bonkers!! Whoever you are White Chevrolet BJC- 2712 you better watch it cause you are officially on my list...FYI not a good list to be on!

I bit my tongue today...and man did it killllll!...then to add to it I burnt it on hot chocolate...pretty much can't talk..awesome!

Also the day pretty much lasted 2 days...I'm not kidding...at one point I said Happy wednesday to an employee and we both about died..

I spilled water ALL over my seat in my car..talk about a comfy drive all the way home! Thanks to whomever left their hoody in my car ages ago...by the way you probably aren't getting it back because I don't know who you are..mmk? :)

There was a dead bug in my shower and I stepped on it...I hate bugs...a lot..

Soooo what's the remedy to a CRAPPY monday?...I have no idea BUT I basically screamed this song at the top of my lungs to and from Lethbridge today....sometimes people lie...and I don't appreciate it and I want to yell at them...this does it for me!...Enjoy!



If you had a crappy monday as well and wanna share feel free to leave a comment! =)

Why are you not much better than Monday?... And also why is it that when I don't have to work until 9am that somehow means in my mind that I should stay up later in order to still not get enough sleep!?..Duhhh not smart!!

Irregardless today was actually a pretty great day...that is after I got passed the numbingly long day at work!! Which was actually a short day but seemed to drag on longer than a regular day?..anywhooo , who has had enough of my rambling? I sure have! ...So here you go, today was a great day because I got to go out for Sushi with my all time bestie friend! ...miss Katelyn Wilde!..oh she's the bomb let me tell you! and then I put a cheque in the bank which took me out of poverty ranking AND theennn I got to go visit my second mama which is also Katelyns momma!...I love our chats soooo much! Don't second momma's rock?

So thats me focusing on the good parts of the day! yay me!...don't mind me while I pat myself on the back for uno momento!...and done!

Happy Tuesday to everyone!

Day #29- I miss...

miss

1   [mis]  Show IPA
–verb (used with object)
6.
to regret the absence or loss of: I miss you all dreadfully.


Well Happy Sunday all! Hope everyones was faaaantastic as possible!...anyone notice that stupid white stuff on the ground this weekend...hates that stuff!! Good thing it was nice out today and it melted for the most part! I was seriously not impressed! Anywho...I really hope everyones weekends were wonderful! Went by way too fast dontcha think? I do! Mine was a little crazy a little busy and a little weird I guess! Went to a talent show, went dancing and had my car break down! ...yay... poor tinney...on her last leg maybe! dang car!

Anywho...the topic of the day is Things that I miss...which is weird because I've been missing a lot of things lately and I don't particularly love this feeling very much!...There are places I miss, people I miss (some that I don't really want to...boo) and things that I miss. Too much missing if you ask me! I could do without!!...But I will not be missing Hawaii in about 17 days...phew one thing off the list!

Mostly I guess I just miss feeling...comfortable?...I donno if that is the right word...hmm...content?..Yup thats it..I miss feeling content! ahhh well it'll come soon enough! I am just so anxious for life to change again in just a few short weeks! but let me tell you people I CANNOT WAIT!!!!

Well I feel like this has been scattered...and thats how I feel today...soo...sorry bout that!

I hope you all aren't missing anything quite terribly! But if you are here is a good song I like about missing!



If I haven't seen or talked to you lately...just know I miss ya k!

snort laughs... uncontrollable at times..yet never that cute..

Stopping at a red light and watching the driver next to you screaming at someone on the phone... I felt like I was in trouble or something...awwwkward!

Sunday again already!

Umm happy sunday again already! Is it just me or did this week fly by?...Probably cause I have been running around with an actual schedule and 0 sleep...oh how lovely to not be lazy on a beach all day...NOT!

Anywho it's Sunday so lets focus here! I love sundays and today I took it for granted and I'm kind of mad about it! I let some stuff get to me and make me grumpy and I just did not have a good attitude at all. Plus I was super tired and slept in and was rushed in the morning. blah I suck at life today!! But I got to teach primary again and oh how I missed that! Even though they were kind of bonkers I still just love them and they make my Sundays worth it just to have them answer my questions and actually seem like they are learning something from this slacker! LOVES them so much! Anyways then I wasted my life away with a 3 hour nap... BUT THEEEN I had nice boy mention the hymn " I need thee every hour" and it reminded me how much I love that hymn! So I listened to it and I remembered that I need my Heavenly Father every hour...the happy easy ones and the stressful horrible ones. Also at my friends funeral last year someone sang this hymn and I remembered that I need to be so grateful... even to have a bad day!... I should have remembered that today and I'm sure my day would have gone a lot smoother and I would have been ( ok...I cant not blog this and it has to be right in the middle of my sentence because I was just rudely interupted by a fly...flying crazily and then dying right by my face on my pillow...today needs to be over STAT!) anyways I would have been a lot happier and gotten more out of my Sabbath...so mental note next Sunday... APPRECIATE IT!! I only have 3 left here!

Well here is the most wonderful hymn that I love..... thank you nice boy! =)



Thanks all who put up with my grumpyness...you rock...seriously!...( special shout out to my sister...who made my Sunday all it should have been!...just in the knick of time..I love you girl!)

- having a patient tell me about the time he went to the dentist in Britain and the assistants told him to drop his pants and bend over the table and they gave him a needle in his butt and it fixed his toothache...ummm either a) you are lying, b) you are outta your mind!, or c) they shot you up with illegal drugs that made you high as a kite....either way sir that is not happening here...mmk?

Happy SUNDAY!...

It's not sunday anymore and I just realized that I missed doing a happy sunday and it made me sad so here you go all! HAPPY SUNDAY...its 3am...but i can still pass it off because I haven't gone to sleep yet SO...for me it is still sunday! yay!

I love that song SO much!.. I really believe that thru my hardest trials I can rest in the Lord and he will bring me peace joy and comfort. Not always in the ways I expect it but in the ways that will benefit me most! What a true and joyous blessing to have the knowledge that when I need my Heavenly Father and ask for him he will be there...ALWAYS!

Happy Sunday everyone...I hope it was as amazing as mine!...Because honestly it has been SO SO amazing and uplifting. It has strengthened my testimony more than ever to be home with my family and feel their love and feel the comfort of the gospel!

Enjoy your week ya'll!

Here it is... Day #20

You thought I forgot didnt cha?..Well no I didn't ...But I am just sitting at the airport waiting for my delayed flight...can you say awesomesauce!...not... you know what else is SUPER awesome sauce..going thru security twice at the same airport...because genius here forgot something in my friends car!..ugh what a day.... I am CLEARLY not meant to leave! oy vey!...Anywhooooo Day #20 is to blog about this month...how perfect is that! ok I know I cheated and made it for today but..it still counts!

Where the heckers do I start? This month has definitely been full of adventure!... It kind of feels like a dream! I feel like I was just sitting in the airport waiting to come out here! This month has taught me a lot... given me a lot of answers...some I wanted...some I didn't want! It taught me patience.. It taught me that sometimes the past is there for a reason and sometimes it should stay there! Its showed me that sometimes the people you expect to be there for you wont be and then on the other hand some people you didn't expect to be able to rely on will be there to help you out no matter what! How cool is that? It somehow restored my faith in people! This month also taught me A LOT about myself! It restored some independence that I had somehow lost a long my travels in life! And I feel really good about getting it back! I'm ok on my own and I'm myself again! I'm really proud of myself for doing this experience all on my own!.. I payed for it on my own, experienced it on my own, got in some sticky situations and got myself out!...Learned to stick up for myself. This month brought some disappointment... unfortunately...but I got thru it without having anyone to hug me and comfort me (of course my mom helped me on the telly) But I still think I handled myself really well!...Overall this month ROCKED...It'll definitely be one of the best experiences of my life! No regrets what so ever! I am finally ready to just get a move on with my life!!...starting of course with another trip back to paradise with the whole fam jam in about 4 weeks! oh my gosh that cannot come fast enough!..and THEN school at BYUI..woo hoo! Anywhoo thats getting a head of myself...focus ..focus. So I don't really know what else to say about this month! You all have experienced it for the most part with me! Its helped me put so many things into perspective and to say goodbye to some stuff I didn't need to keep hanging on to.. Its truly been such a blessing..and a life changing experience and really well...awesomesauce!

Well everyone thats my month! I am not ready to face the next one! But I can and will and then everything will be so fantastic to follow! I miss you all like crazy crazy and part of me I will admit can't wait to be home...or that could be the tiredness and hatefulness of this airport talking who knows!!

Sleep tight my lovelies and I will see you soon!

xoxo

Day #21/30...One Last Moment...

Uh...sad day!!... that is all I can say... I am having a panic attack FOR REALS!...  Oh and how in the world did I pack this suitcase 5 weeks ago?.. OH RIIIGHT my mom did it for me!..gaaaaah!! I am seriously cuffuffled!! I really can't write at this moment...to prove my point I have deleted this post twice by accident...and wrote right instead of write and probe instead of prove and so on and so forth soooo this is going to be way more productive and less spazzy for everyone!... one last moment.. enjoy!.. =(


And yes this is at 630 this morning...yes my eyelids are sunburnt and yes I have massive bags under my eyes....yaaaay I rock!

see ya'll soon!!

Day#22,23,24 all wrapped into one!!

Surprise everyone I can't count again!! But day# 20 and 21 will be better for tomorrow so just go with it mmk? Thanks a bunch!

So lets see here.... some that makes me upset and makes me cry....well that is not the most lovely of topics but ok here we go!.... I am honestly really upset about leaving Hawaii and will probably cry on the airplane! But thats just me being a huge blubber baby!

I get really upset when I am disappointed. I really put all my trust in people and believe what they tell me and when they end up letting me down and not meaning what they say it really gets to me. I just feel like if you say something you need to back it up and if you can't then you just shouldn't say it because it makes me feel like that person doesn't care about me and that my happiness doesn't matter! I also get upset when I see a lot of potential in someone and they don't live up to it because I see how happy they could be and all the things they could achieve and it hurts me to see them not doing it! And I also really don't like seeing the ones I love hurting...I always wish I could take it away and fix it!

So now for somethings that make me feel better!! Yay this is happy!!
I loooove my sis linds and her and I have laughed at this many many times..we quote it often and it seriously makes me smile!...if you don't appreciate I don't even know what to tell you..ridic!



Oh and this little guy..... ugh I can't get enough of him!..I'm not even bias this kid is the cutest thing in the whole garsh darn world!!! LOVE!


video


His laugh is soooo contagious ...ugh i miss him!...Oh and my awesome fam like hearing erinn and greg in the background!! haha love my fam!!

Hope everyone is really happy and having a good day! And if not hopefully I could make you smile even for a couple minutes!!

xoxoxo

P.S- Awkward and Awesome will return next week so look forward to it!!

Day #19- Regret..

"Never regret. if its good, its wonderful... if its bad, its experience."   
                  - Victoria Holt a.k.a Eleanor Hibbert


hmm well I am not entirely positive how to approach the subject of regret!.. I really do love that quote though because if anything I have learned is that the bad things that happen in life should not be regrets they should be recognized as experience.

Am I proud of all of the decisions I've made in life?..definitely not! BUT I do try to look at them as experiences and those decisions have made me grow and learn. Sometimes its embarrassing, sometimes the decisions have hurt others or myself. I think I could pick out a few things that I would change in my past but then I start to think of who I would be without those learning stepping stones... either way you can't change the past you can only learn from it SO I guess you just have to embrace it all and learn how to make better choices to make a better future!

If I had to pick something that I regret from my past it would be that I didn't listen to the Holy Spirit when I should have. I think I would have learned some lessons a lot quicker...but like I said before I'm stubborn and thats just how I do things! But definitely I wish I had learned to trust my Heavenly Father and trust the Spirit a little bit sooner in life!...but hey lesson learned! =)

I love all of you and who you are today irregardless of your past....so no regrets because you are who you are because of your past and daaaaang i think you are pretty fantastic!

xoxo



YOU'VE HAD A BIRTHDAY!!

Day #18 is about birthdays!....I love how our family celebrates birthdays!... We don't do a big huge hoppla or anything... We have a tradition called the birthday basket and how it works is... ok so we go in order of bdays SO I do my bros basket, he does poppys, then he does Lindsays, then she does moms and then mom does mine! I love it so much because its usually just a couple things that are really meaningful and the persons favorite treats! So then it puts a lot more emphasis on spending time together and having fun!

And as it so happens Linds had her bday just yesterday! ( this post was meant to happen on the day of...stupid internet..)

So here is the bday post to the bestest sister in the whole world! Happy Happy Birthday darlin! You are so amazing and I hope your day was just as fantastic as you deserve! I wish I could have been there to celebrate with you! I miss you like crazy and am sad I missed it! BUT I am sooooo excited to celebrate when I get home with a sushi/movie date!...I love you bunches and was thinking of you on your special day!!


Oh...and then I finished off the next container of icecream...JUST for you!! =)

xoxo

INTERNETLESS = BONKERS!

So uh...kinda haven't had the internet for a couple days and honestly... it kind of killed me!..made me miss everyone and you know the thing where you want what you can't have?..I think the fact that I couldn't get on the internet even if I wanted to is what really drove me bonkers! Oh that AND the fact it was crummy out all day also!..it rained and was crummy today as well!...I think Hawaii is sad that I'm leaving!

Anywho..... not having the internet bummed me out BUT then I got motivated and this is what came of it!..

I went and took some pictures of the lovely flowers around here....






Then I decided to make some real good use of my time and finally finish the best church book ever and study the scriptures..
 All while looking like the biggest nerdy/scrubby ever!...woo!
Oh and I really love this coconut picture I took while on my walk!..



Hope you are ready for another post!...I have a lot of catching up to do!...and its rainy rainy!

xoxo
