Creepy Santa!

When you think of Christmas you think of the jolly old fellow that brings presents to all the good girls and boys.

Nick found a site full of Santa's that would be considered creepy. Examples:

Halloween was fun, spending time with the family is always wonderful during thanksgiving. this December is full of adventure!

Next week I am going to a cookie exchange in Tri-cities with Nicks mom and my soon to be sister in law. I think I'm going to make white chocolate macadamia cranberry cookies. we are also going to do a white elephant exchange.

Nick graduates from school December 18th. I didn't realize this until just recently so I am scheduled to work but I am going to do my very very best to get it off!

Unfortunately I probably wont be able to make it to my family Christmas because I work retail and they are going to Vancouver. Christmas in town will still be fun though.

in the next couple of months Nick and I will know if we are going to stay in Yakima a little longer then planned, when and where we are moving, what kind of an exiting job Nick gets... so on and so forth.

Happy December everyone!

Nick and I have been getting ready to get married in the spring as most of you know. Something most of you don't know is that I told him long ago that If he didn't ask me proper I was calling the whole thing off! Well all things come in there own time.

Yesterday I was talking to Roger (Brother in law) on the phone about vitamin D supplements and out of the blue Nick started "herding" me to walk a different direction. I told Roger I needed to go see what Nick needed. Its not every day he tries to herd me.

Nick told me he just wanted to go for a walk with me. So we walked down the gravel road talking randomly as we often do on our walks. I stopped to play with the goats down the road. on our way back he spun me around and told me he had something he wanted to give me. I was pretty sure I knew what it was. He kissed me and told me that was all ( hes so cute when hes nervous), I thanked hm. then he pulled the box out and told me he had been carrying it around all day. Nick got on his knee in the middle of the gravel road and asked me if I would spend the rest of my life with him. I hugged him and cried. Nick asked me again, just to make sure It was a yes I'm sure.

Nick then told me a few of the plans he had to ask me. one of them was that he was going to send me on a state long scavenger hunt including places we have been together. the other was to ask in the middle of the engagement picture shoot. although either of these would have been fun, I like that it was more personal, doing something we like to do.

the classy wedding

OK... so I have been looking up wedding Ideas. I kinda' know what I want in my head but I'm trying to find something that resembles my idea. I have tried looking for pictures of things in my head before and it never works so I don't know why I try! Anyway... I typed in "classy wedding" and got some pictures that make me wonder if people know what class is. some speak for them selves and others I thought were just funny.
in my opinion this is not classy! on your wedding day you should look elegant! this reminds me of something that could be used for the wedding night! FYI the bride is 16. see article.
there should be a time and a place...this isn't it!

I also found a website full of tacky wedding pictures... all while looking for some class! a must see if you enjoy laughing at other peoples classlessness!

fun wedding ideas

I know its not wedding Wednesday, but I don't have a lot of blogging time these days so now its "whatever whenever blogging!"

I have been looking up wedding Ideas etc. and I found a few things that I like! some I may use but most wont go with my theme.

Penney rolls

The rolls of pennies are for your out of town guests to use at the penny slots. just use regular penny rolls with red an white twine (bakers twine) to tie your personalized note on!

I thought that Kat would love this tea cup center piece found on an Eco friendly wedding website!

Fred Meyer Got a giant pumpkin in . The whole day I tried to figure out how a $40 pumpkin would fit into my budget!

It's 144 pounds ( I would need someone else to carry it, its bigger then I am), 84 inches around, beautiful Orange color, minimal scaring, flat bottom, nice stem, and good round shape. that information was for "pumpkin snobs" like Nick.

No Its not really that big and I don't think Fred Meyer tucks it in at night.

I really like the Idea of ridiculously large pumpkins!

Happy October!

I love October... with exception of being cold its one of my favorite months! Why you ask? this is the month that things start turning beautiful fall colors, the holiday baking begins, and Halloween celebration!

Yesterday I made Macaroons for the first time! they aren't very halloweeny but they were good.

Nick and I bought pumpkins to carve, we weren't actually able to carve them this weekend but maybe next weekend.

I am also in the midst's of brainstorming a great costume!

Lifes changes

Have you ever notice how one thing happens and it changes the life of sometimes one person, sometimes several people? Of course once things are done they cannot be undone so sometimes those lives are forever changed.

I've never been good at writing, Most of the time I don't have much of an opinion and I don't use a lot of words.

The only thing I can say is that you had a great impact in my life. You were the kind of person that made the lives of others better just by knowing them. The world seemed a better place with you in it. Never forgotten, forever missed. Loved by... I wont venture to say all... but definitely most. You did so much for your country, your comunity, and your family. You are and always have been one of my heros. I hope I can be as great a person you were. Life is long but we will meet day.

Flight of the conchords and Lord of the Rings...

I just found out that Bret McKenzie from Fight of the Concords was in lord of the rings. So I'm a little slow but please view the evidence.

A:The character he played was Figwit. He was an elf in the counsel with no speaking parts.

B. They decided to bring him back in return of the king with a few lines.

C. This isn't really evidence... I just enjoyed it!

Today is my day off and although I have a lot I need to be doing, I would really like to relax. I have a lot going on right now and I feel like I need to slow down. Haven't decided if relaxing is in the cards for me today. who knows! maybe!

Friday, September 4, 2009

Happy friday!

I get A day off tomorrow! I'm so excited! I just wish it was tomorrow already! and then in a perfect world time would stop so I wouldn't have to go to that dreadful place again!

The move!

In answer to Kitty's question about the move, today I am going to blog on... well... the move!

Yes its true I'm in Yakima again. I don't have all of my things with me but I should by the end of the month. My moving weekend was a hectic one as Heidi ( my youngest sister) was having her baby while I was driving to Yakima. There have been some stressful moments but for the most part everything went as planned.

I have some opportunities in Yakima that I didn't have in Vancouver. I don't want to stay in Yakima any longer then I have to but I love being close to the people I know and love. Thank you for asking Kitty! All is well! Sometimes I feel like the chicken though.

one of the best things ever!

when I got home there was a plethora of COOKIES ON THE COUNTER! Melissa said they were the best cookies ever. I wasn't sure she was telling the truth. I had to eat 2 of them to be sure but I decided that they are defiantly in the top 5 "best cookies ever". unfortunately Melissa couldn't remember the name of these cookies, but they are nummy and she has the recipe! if you are interested in them ask Melissa!

New adventures!

Its hard for some people to understand but I am going to Move back to Yakima for a while. this means I will have to change my blog description. Nick and I have been "dating" for approximately 3 years. 2 of those 3 have been long distance. the more you love someone the harder it is to be away from them for an extended period of time. I love Nick more every day so every day it gets harder to stay away. in conclusion I must Move back to Yakima for my own sanity and happiness. Its like I'm going back home as "home is where the heart is."

The stinky life of Mr. Poops

No one is going to appreciate this like Nick and I but My last present from nick was a toy called Mr. Poops. This is his story.

"Abandoned at birth, Mr. Poops could not understand why no one would want him. Alone, in the hot sun, he was left to dry out with no hope of survival. with each passing dog he hoped that he would not e so dried out that no one would recognize him as they sniffed looking to find their own family.

Good fortune fell upon Mr. Poops when a rain storm washed him into a storm drain where he was able to float his way to a store near you. Please adopt Mr. Poops and give him the family he deserves. Reunite him with a dog that wants to put him in their mouth and squeak him with unconditional love only a dog could provide."

Yes, Mr. Poops is a dog toy. Yes I love Mr poops for entertainments sake. Nick also got me the 2ND season to flight of the Concorde's. That will be saved for another Blog though.

pillows for rings?

Nick and I were brain storming about ring bearer pillows. we wanted something a little more original then your typical white pillow. we started thinking of other things we could use as instead of pillows. there were a few ideas but the one that stuck was boxes. so. I'm thinking about asking my dad to make ring bearer boxes and I will sew a little tiny pillow to go inside the box. the rings should be safe that way and most people don't use boxes.

Beautiful locks...

When you look at wedding pictures usually you see the beautiful woman with the beautiful long hair and the men with their hair cropped short. sometimes the brides wear their hair up and sometimes they wear their hair down. Nick and I are not very traditional people. don't get me wrong, I'm sure we will have traditions we fallow weather it is Sunday morning waffles, Friday night movies, or whatever they may be. We want our wedding to reflect "us". So Nick is keeping his long hair and I my short. there are other nontraditional thing we will be doing, but that's for another blog altogether.

the future addition...

I thought I would share with you the future addition to our family.

They are called Scottish Fold Kittens.

Nick and I thought that they are soooo cute. We cant wait to have our first cat together. They are an expensive breed but we aren't looking for show quality. We are hoping to get lucky and find one in a cat rescue.

Saturday, August 8, 2009


Nick and I spent the day inside... mostly. We did go for a walk and we went to Burgerville. I must say that Burgerville Has the best burgers EVER! Our date today was watching P.S. I love you.

Nick? Is something burning?

One day, about three years ago while Nick and I were working at PetCo, I was helping a customer when I heard a panicked girly scream "Oh my God" and "AHHHHHAAAAHHH." When I finished with my customer, I sprinted across the store where I found Nick huddled on the floor trying to catch his breath. I asked if he was OK (trying not to laugh out loud . . . or snort) and he said in a quivery voice "OH MY BALLS, I will never have kids;" this is when I couldn't contain the laughter any longer (I nearly peed my pants.) When Nick was able to talk using full sentences, I asked him what happened and he whimpered that he had been asked to fix some equipment in the fish tanks. A power head and light fixture had been shorting out and he had forgotten to wear his rubber boots. Basically water+electricity= KFG (Kentucky Fried Gentiles.) It was pretty serious because Nick did get a big shock and remained pouty for the next few days . . . and it was hard not to poke fun! After that, Nick went on to receive "several" more shocks, stabs, bumps and whacks to the groin; he still whines about it even today.

As you know we are getting married so I hope that his "little men" remained in tact. If not... we can always adopt.

I hope this blog was not offensive... If it was... I still think its funny and you should too! ZZZZAAP!
