Idk why I wrote "snow" in the snow, because obviously that's what it is lol
snow angel!!!

Shayna rolled down the hill lol

Dancing in the snow! :)

So outside it's a big, white, beautiful mess! On top of the layer of ice is a couple inches of snow, and I'm pretty sure it's still coming down. It's pretty to look at but wayy to cold to be out there in it! The magic lasted about 20 minutes and then i was done lol.
I'm glad ASU was closed today cuz I had a lot more studying to do before my 2 tests that were supposed to be today. Now I have 3 tests monday and that's no fun!
I should probably get off this computer and start studying! I hope yall had a great snow day! (if you're in Arkansas lol)

My Michael Obsession...

Alright... so i have a small obsession with Michael Jackson! If you know me at all you should know this fact lol. It all started a couple of years ago when I learned the Thriller dance on this website.

It's got like 40 videos breaking down the dance for you with voice commands to help you out while you're learning it. Like "shoulder step, shoulder step, booty bounce and booty bounce, swim together swim jump... left hip left hip right hip in out, turn rawr turn rawr turn, a shaka and an upa a shaka and an upa"

So ever since then when I was somewhere where there was music playin I would request MJ and dance haha! I even did it in front of the whole school during our senior night, halloween pep rally!

I also love all his other songs! "Blame it on the Boogie," "I'll be There," "Billie Jean," "Smooth Criminal"... actually I would have to list them all cuz they're all my favorites! I went to the "This Is It" MJ movie and bought my tickets online like a month early! I know you probably think I'm crazy, but don't judge me!

Here are some pictures proving the extent of my obsession!

Team Michael!

America vs England

Here's some words they use in England that are different from here. Some are funny! Cody hears these everyday. :)
Ace - if something is ace it is brilliant.
All right? - "Hello, how are you?
Anti-clockwise - counter-clockwise
Any road - instead of saying anyway, they said "any road"! Weird huh?
Arse over elbow - This is another way of saying head over heels
Barmy - If someone tells you that you're barmy they mean you have gone mad or crazy.
Beastly - You would call something or someone beastly if they were really nasty or unpleasant
Bender - this means a gay man or a heavy drinking session
Blinding - fantastic
Blow off - Who blew off? Means who farted
Chat up - To chat someone up is to try and pick them up.
Cheesed off - This is a polite way of saying you are pissed off
Cracking - if something is cracking, it means it is the best. If a girl is cracking it means she is stunning
Fanny around - It means to procrastinate
Fruity - if someone is feeling fruity then they are feeling frisky. Watch out!
Full of beans - This means to have loads of energy. It's a polite way of saying that a child is a maniac.
Getting off - getting off with someone means making out or snogging them. lol
Give us a bell - This simply means call me.
Honking - Honking is being sick or throwing up
Kip - the same thing as a nap
Naff - if something is naff, it is uncool
Nancy boy - if someone is being pathetic you would call them nancy or nancy boy. The opposite is called a hard guy. It's also another word for a gay man.
Off your trolley - it means you have gone raving bonkers, crazy, mad!
Posh - roughly translates as high class
Smashing - it means terrific
Two finger salute - when you see a brit stick up two fingers at you in a V shape.. it means the same thing as giving someone the bird here. If you go to England make sure you don't do that!
Waffle - to waffle means to talk on and on about nothing. it's not something you eat.

He's doing very well on his mission they have baptised 3 maybe 4 since he's been out (sept 25, 2009) He rides a bike EVERYWHERE and has gained 14 lbs. (which equals one "stone" in England) all muscle with a little bit of fish and chips! lol

Cody has such a strong testimony and always has done all of the right things... i've always been jealous of how perfect he is! lol

7) Me dating his best friends haha
8) Going to Disney World with band together!
9) doing fundraisers like crazy so we could go to Disney World

13) getting into the wreck on our way to school. (the bumper is still held on by zipties lol)
14) when he freakin blew that blow horn at my graduation!
15) our long talks on the way home from insitutute (college class on wednesdays at church)

It's coming to an end...

Christmas break that is...

***** so just a little side note*****
-I totally had a ton of this post already typed out, then my laptop freaked out and erased everything i wrote... that's so frustrating!!
My last final was Dec. 11th, and I finished my first semester in college with 1 A and 3 B's. I'm pretty proud of myself, I worked hard for it. College is a big transition from high school where I hardly studied at all!
I started off christmas break job shadowing for Laurie Deroque, an Occupational Therapist for a public school. That was so much fun! (I have to have 20 hours volunteering for an OT before i can apply for OTassistant school next fall.) All the kids were so sweet and very special in all their different ways! From ages 3-18. I can't wait to get into that field. Shadowing really made me excited about it. I'll try to take some pictures next time I go.
Also during these couple of weeks I've got to hang out with my girls a lot! Like at least one of them everyday, it was great! Autumn, Emma, and Katie moved for the semester so I missed them. (I have a feeling that every post is going to mention my besties at some point lol) We've had a ton of breakfasts, lunches, and dinners together! I know I've gained some from eating out so much lol. I will be visiting them more this next semester, cuz i gotta have my besties!
I worked a lot... at sonic.. i know, not the most glamourous job out there, but it's a job.. (btw plz tip your carhops if you don't already! IT'S THE LAW! haha just kidding... but seriously we don't get minimum wage fyi lol) oh and here is a list of a few of my pet peeves at sonic...
1) ask for condiments when we take your order!
*we don't magically know what you prefer with your popcorn chicken!
2) throw away your own trash unless you tip me at least a dollar!
*that's just gross
3) don't make us go back and forth from inside to your car!
*it's cold! 27 degrees today!
4) have your money ready to go when we get there!
*don't say "bless your heart, it's so cold out here" while you make us stand there while you count $5.00 in all nickles!
5) don't get mad at your carhop when your burger is messed up
*we don't cook! don't shoot the messenger!
6) listen when we read back your order!
*it's not our fault if your just an idiot
7) for all you "crazy tea ladies" just drink the dadgum tea or go home and make your own!
*seriously why do you come back when it was "horrible" the last time??
Well there's my top 7 pet peves... there's so many more! I'll make another post devoted to my love/hate relationship with sonic lol.
Finally I was a little missionary! lol Cody would be proud... my friend Jacob became interested in church. He came with me to a youth activity, church one sunday, and 1 other meeting with the missionaries so far! and he says he has never felt better about anything in a long time! keep him in your prayers! I can't wait to tell Cody all about it when I email him again...
*This awesome break is almost over, it's back to school on monday... studying all the time and working when I'm not.. sometimes both at the same time.
Until next time... peace and blessings, peace and blessings!

Had a Great Day!

So I woke up around lunch time and went to Autumn's to have breakfast (french toast) with Katie and Autumn. Then later Autumn, Emma, Katie and I went to TGIFridays for dinner. Morgan couldn't come because she was working.

It was a great day, I needed to be with my girls today!

A hug is a great gift - one size fits all, and it's easy to exchange.

When you said forever and always...

ok well i'm "blogging about it" again.

Don't Forget by: Demi Lovato

Did you forget that I was even alive?

Did you forget everything we ever had?

Did you forget, did you forget about me?

Did you regret ever standing by my side?

Did you forget we were feeling inside?

Now I'm left to forget about us

But somewhere we went wrong

We were once so strong

Our love is like a song, you can't forget it

So now I guess this is where we have to stand

Did you regret ever holding my hand?

Never again, please don't forget, don't forget

We had it all, we were just about to fall

Even more in love, than we were before

I won't forget, I won't forget about us

But somewhere we went wrong

We were once so strong

Our love is like a song you can't forget it

Somewhere we went wrong

We were once so strong

Our love is like a song, you can't forget it at all

And at last all the pictures have been burned

And all the past is just a lesson that we've learned

I won't forget, please don't forget us

Somewhere we went wrong

Our love is like a song but you won't sing along

You've forgotten about us

Don't forget


I thought he was mine

so much better than the rest

but all along i had to fight

to get ahead of you.

He doesn't know what love is

all i need him to know

is what a friend is.

I guess it's time to forget the past

and move forward.

Forget about everything I had.

I never really had anything

but false promises and song lyrics

cause all along

i was sharing his heart with you.


p.s. this is my sad excuse of a poem, i was never good in english class.

These are a few of my favorite things...

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

Brown paper packages tied up with strings

These are a few of my favorite things!


My brother, The missionary

My Brother, the artist!

My beautiful sister

My Family: I wouldn't be who I am today without them.

They will always be there for me no matter what!

My Besties! : My 4 bestfriends, Morgan, Autumn, Emma, and Katie. We've been through everything and i know that we will still be best friends in 50 years. All of the laughs, tears, late nights, school lunches, working together, getting our nails done, and just being there whenever we needed them. I love you girls!

My Phone! ... You won't find me anywhere without it!

My shows: Monk (even though it's over the reruns are still amazing), and American Idol. I have other favorites these are just the ones I watch almost religiously lol

Doing mine and other peoples nails: I love getting creative!

Dancing! I love to dance! It's so much fun! Never taken a real class but I've always wanted to

When the dog bites, when the bee stings

When I'm feeling sad, I simply remember

My favorite things!

Then I don't feel so bad!
