I have been having some trouble coming up with things that I would like for Christmas... But here are a few for those who are interested ;)

So I really like these boots... DSW. Best bet is to buy them online because they are on clearance. Size 9, grey.


I also like this top from Nordstrom. Medium, Cream or grey.


Nicholas Sparks has a new book out, Safe Haven, I'm interested in it.

I'd really enjoy some new jeans... size 9 or 29.

iTunes gift cards are always fun.

A cute sweater or Cardigan.

I really can't think of anything else at the moment. Gift cards are always good too, but if I think of anything else I'll update.

Thee Bestfriend

I find myself wondering how I got so lucky.

I met her in December of 1995 and find it hard to even remember anytime in my life without her. Today my very best friend is turning 22!

Often times I feel like Elizabeth drew the short stick when it comes to our friendship. She is the defintion of friend, and I know I lack in that department. She is so smart and wise, kind and true, forgiving and tender, honest and genuine. She has such a good head and I know that she will be an AMAZING wife and mother! I am so excited for her and what her life with Eddie will bring. I would do anything in the world to make sure she is happy and sucessful in life.

As we have grown together in life I have learned so much from her, and I appreciate life because of her. She always knows what to say and how to get her point of view across in a perfect way. She does not judge and he makes very good choices. Whenever life gets hard she is right there with me.

Recently she has been there to bring me back to my feet. Life gets rough sometimes and I was feeling really down... She brought me home and as we were in the car I broke down. She knew just what to say and how to make me feel better. Her words are so real and so heartfelt and I know that no matter what happens she is there to comfort me and be thee most amazing friend without fail. That night she probably had much better things to do but she stood in the cold and talk, cried and comforted me until I felt better.

I am so lucky to have her, and Eddie is a lucky man to be marrying her. Her life is changing and I am so happy for her. She is going to be thee most beautiful bride and I am so glad that she is letting me be a part of this special time in her life.

I love you best friend!

Happy Birthday!


Oh my... How I have failed at blogging.

Since my last post, a very long time ago, much has happened.

I quit working at the plastic office. Working 14 days straight was too much for me. The extra money was nice but if I am on top of signing up for extra shifts at the hospital it makes up the difference. This week I have worked 2 extra shifts and it will make a substantial difference in my pay check.

I threw Elizabeth a bridal shower. I stressed about it for so long because I wanted it to be PERFECT for her. It was a lot of fun and I think we did a pretty good job with decorations and all the details. I even ordered cupcakes from a bakery that were DELISH! She got some great gifts to help her start a home... I am so exctied for her and this new chapter in her life. I love her too much!

I cut my hair. Usually when I cry and say I chopped my hair off it honestly is less than an inch shorter. This time it is WAY shorter and much blonder!!

So thee wedding is on August 6th. Im way excited, a little nervous about the speech part, but all the rest is excitement. Lauren, the kids and Chelsea are coming and I believe that Nathan and Amanda will be here around that time as well.

Laughlin was fun! I won $250 on roulette!! Going again in 2 weeks. Went to Vegas also, and it was SOOO fun! I love the busyness of the city and I love laying out by the pool and window shopping and going to shows... going again in August. Also in August Jennie and I are going to try to go to Lake Tahoe. Her family has a cabin there with lots of fun stuff.

I should finish this later since I have to be up at 5 to work an extra shift ;)

Break it down now ya'll

I work SO much. Everyday... all day 6am until about 7 pm. Curently I am on day 3 of a 15 day work streak, and I just totally broke down on the phone with Edward.

These are the things I liked to do before I sold my soul.
- Go out with my girls
- Go to the gym
- read
- go to borders
- watch movies
- go to the pool
- play tennis
- relax

NOW, I have time for nothing and I'm exauhsted all the time! I can't do things with Lizz for the wedding, I seriously just go home and go to bed every night. UHHHGH!

Life unexpected

Turns out I suck at blogging! Ha. Or maybe my life isn't that interesting.

So I got the job at the plastic office and it's going really good. I do things like drain, staple And suture removal, fluid aspirations, assist in small procedures, draw meds... So it's nice. I feel like I'm doing things I should be doing and I'm learning a lot.

Work at the hospital is just going, nothing ever exciting. Between the two jobs I don't have time for anything! The times I do go out come 9 pm I'm ready for bed! Being an adult sure does stink sometimes.

I'm in the process of re-furnishing my bedroom. I'm pretty excited about making these purchases... It's like an adult thing I suppose. I'll post pictures as I buy the pieces. I guess the upside to having two jobs is having two paychecks eh?

Jennie and I got memberships to 24 hour And in the last 2 weeks I've lost 6 pounds! 11 more to go until my pre-utah weight. I also have been going to Disneyland like once a week now that I have a friend with a pass. It's nice to go, hit a few rides and come home instead of spending money on things like dinner or a movie 2 or 2 times a week, and it's way more fun!

I think that's all for now!

Here's to luck!

I'm trying not to get ahead of myself but I'm a little excited. I have a really great job opprotunity with a plastic surgeon and my second interview is on Tuesday. It's a working interview that they are paying me for so I'm hoping that means they are interested. If they offer me the job I'm going to take it no matter what. I have been looking for a job since I've been done with school and applied to so many places but because I lack expierence no one will hire me. So if they are going to give me a chance I'm going to take it!!

Some people don't deserve to live...

Some days I wonder how the heck... why the heck I got into healthcare. Yeah, I only work three days a week and have GREAT insurance, but days like this weeks I think I should choose a different line of work because the things you see are just so sad.

I have a serious issue with neglect/abandonment. Whether it be me, or ANNNNNNYone else I'm not into it. I also have a serious issue with the idea of anything bad happening to my mom or grandmothers and as one ages, anyone ages, for some reason some caretakers, children and hired help alike, feel that it is okay to neglect this human life they took on the responsibility to take care of. So let me tell you some do's and do NOTs I have learned this week.

-Do NOT take one out of professional care in hopes they will die and you can inherit more money.
-Do keep giving the best and most comforting care to your loved ones as long as possible.
-Do NOT leave someone helpless alone in a room for DAYS and DAYS without checking on them.
-Do spend as much time with them as possible.
-Do NOT, in this span of lonely days, leave a helpless person in the same adult diaper for DAYS AND DAYS, and not give them any food or water... or a bath.
-Do give someone at the end stage of life anything and everything they ask for as long as possible.
-DO NOT let this person continue to sit in this dirty diaper and get blisters, torn skin, rashes, skin breakdown... and then have to scratch this area of dirtyness and then continue to scratch the rest of themselves because they haven't been bathed since someone took them out of professional care.
-DO be human... do realize that once you were helpless too, that if you neglect someone ESPECIALLY your own flesh and blood you will be haunted (hopefully) and you SURELY will go to jail.

That's my 2 cents.

Yay Area!

I'm a travelin' wo-man

Another goal... Travel.

So far this year I've been to Vegas, (not really traveling but whatever)

Today I'm headed to San Fransisco and surrounding areas.

Also this month I'm going to Arizona for spring training baseball games, and yet again... wait for it... Vegas.

May I'm going to Fresno to the Carrie Underwood Concert.

June I'm headed to Mexico... Cabo San Lucas to be exact... by land or by sea is yet to be determined.

HOPEFULLY this year I can get to New York... if I can convince someone to go with me!

There is also talk of Florida with Tim & CO. to do the Walt Disney adventures.

Cheers to livin life!
