Yesterday was Ali's birthday! Hooray for Ali! 23 years of awesomeness! So I have decided to devote a post to Ali!

I am so grateful for Ali! She is the best! Seriously!

She has been a great friend! And a great roommate! I could not ask for anyone better! In fact, I am not sure there is anyone better, just saying.....

Her fear of children is priceless! Sometimes I just want to hand babies to her just to see her reaction. But I also know that she may be scared of babies now, but when she becomes a mom she will be one of the best!

She is very devoted to her school work and learning! Even at party's she studies. Now that's some self discipline!

She loves food and treat! She makes cookies for us all the time! It's so wonderful! Plus she likes to eat with Bethany and I! Some of my favorite times are going out to eat with her. Come to think of it that seems to be what we always do.
She is beautiful and smart! But she doesn't take herself too seriously! Which is a great combination.

She puts up with mine and Bethany's shenanigans. And if she isn't too busy studying sometimes she will join in!
I guess the major point of this post is that Ali is awesome! And I know that Bethany and I are lucky enough to live with her! Hooray!

  13. Snap, Crackel and Pop from rice krispies
  14. Mario characters. Princess Peach, Toad, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, we could even go mario kart style with cardboard boxes for our cars.

That's all I got so far. I am so excited!!!!! Seriously! I love finding things to look forward to.

Our place!

So I just realized that we (the three of us) are terrible bloggers. (Ali the shoe blog was super duper great!) But...we have been living together for over a month and none of us have blogged about it!

But now I am about to change that! OUR CONDO IS THE BEST! And I have the two best roomies in the world! Yeah, everyone else should be extremely jealous.

my FAVORITE shoes. ever

I saw these my first day in Rome and I have looked at them longingly ever since.
LOVE them.

June 1st!

That is the day! The day we can move into our place! Of course Ali won't move in till she gets home. But at least she has a home when she gets back! Horray for us!

in two weeks i'll be here

and here
I'm going to miss you girls SOOO much!!!!!!!!

I'll try to send you lots of post cards

I'm super excited to travel the world,
but I can't wait to come home to you two as my amazing roommates.
After this week is over life is going to be so good for a long time. I can just feel it.

It's the worst sound in the world. It makes my skin crawl, my entire body cringe, and for a brief moment I want to kill something. It's my alarm. I hate it!

Especially, when I am having a wonderful dream about Mr. Talldarkandhandsome, just when he is about to give me the best kiss of my entire life, the alarm goes off and ruins the whole thing.

I feel like the alarm clock enjoys it!
It is the alarms job, waking people up. I just picture it getting so excited about going off. I know that it is an inanimate object. But it has been taunting me for years!

This week I finally figured out a way to not let the alarm clock torture me! I wake up before it goes off! It’s like a race, and I am winning! I was so excited on Tuesday when I beat it two days in a row. Now it is Friday and I went all week without hearing my alarm go off once! And I have been in a great mood everyday that I have woken up before the alarm. It may be that I just love winning so much. And I am defeating something that has given me grief for years. I am just so proud.

I thought I would share. If I make it two weeks, we need to celebrate with a dinner.

So I told us all to blog by Sunday but I didn't do it!

I failed!

I know I get a big F! But I just so you know I did think about it! I thought about it a lot actually!

I just didn't know what to post!

I must say one thing! I am excited to be a roomie with you two! Seriously! I couldn't ask for two better roomates! We all just seem to get along so well!

The deposit money came out of my account today! It's getting real! I can't believe it! Two months from now life is going to be a bit different for me and I can't wait for a new change!

Change usually scares the crap out of me! It's a scary thing! Especially when your life has been in a nice rythme for so long. I am scared, but it's a good scared! I am excited to see what will happen with me! But I am scared because this is the first really big change in my life in 10 years! 10!

(finding all of the f's in this post was hard! I am pretty sure I missed some.)

sometimes cake looks so good

so, i've got like one hour 2 minutes til i have to have a blog up here.

I know like all my posts are about food, but, i just really like to look at food. and eat it. and think about it.

For some reason cake sounded really good today. Good cake, not normal cake. really good moist chocolate cake with that really good frosting. And then I thought, what better time to eat delicious cake than at a cake testing. And that's when I decided that I'm extremely excited to go cake testing for my wedding cake. I'm going to milk that experience for all its worth.

because good cake. is so good.

Sometimes life just falls into place

It truly amazes me. A couple of weeks ago, life came to a point where it looked me straight in the face and said, " Okay check it. Big girl decisions soon have to be made." Crap. In result, stress gets higher and higher and anxiety becomes greater and greater. As the ever-so-talented singer/song writer Ben Folds says, "Everybody knows it sucks to grow up." And it's true, especially when you are trying to decide where to live, what alternative job to take, trying to move forward in schooling/career choice, what the best option for housing is, throw monies in the mix and your head is all sorts of messed up. As it is all sorted out little by little, one thing at a time, you might start seeing a speck of light at the end of the tunnel. You find a great condo that suits three girls just fine, and hey, rent is reasonable. You decide to apply to a dental assisting program to gain knowledge in the dental field. You also find that the location may be 30 minutes away from your comfort zone but it is a lovely place that you will soon call home. And when you think you might be stuck at a job that is 30 minutes away from where you will be living, a suitable job in your soon-to-be-living city opens up and falls right into your lap.

So amidst the stress and anxiety of the decision making that so called "grown-ups" do, really you're just making positive changes that will benefit you, your future, your roommates and maybe, just maybe, you will be lying in bed blogging about how much better you feel because it all seems so worth it. I am excited for the changes ahead, whether they work out or not. Life happens. And whatever happens, happens for a reason. I'm sure it will be a great ride, tons of fun and a wonderful experience in the next chapter of my life.

Question for Ali and Ria: Wanna move in together?

Post by Sunday!

We all have been really slacking on the posting here! Of course Ali has like 5 blogs she has to keep up with and Bethany's schedule is crazy! But I expect more from us ladies. (me included.)

So new goal for this week. We each have to post by Sunday! And it has to be a good post! Alrighty?

I just wanted you all to know that I really want some of these today:

....maybe all of them

Tuesday, March 2, 2010


I have to say that Tuesday and I have not had the best relationship for the past 24 years.

I have many reasons for disliking Tuesday.

1. It comes after Monday. Monday is the day where I am still in a daze from the weekend it hasn't quite hit me that I am back to reality. But Tuesday is the day it seems to hit.

2. I am always tired on Tuesday! Always! It's harder to get up and my day is always not nearly as fun.

3. There are still 4 days till the weekend! 4!

4. Nothing really happens on a Tuesday. Seriously, all the other days are popular and have wonderful things happening. Even the good television shows are on the other days, but nothing on Tuesday.

I have decided to try to mend my relationship with Tuesday. I feel like we got off to a bad start. I need to start being a bit more positive about it. And hopefully, eventually it will become one of my favorite days of the week.

I am sorry Tuesday.

There are some things money can't buy

The other day after work I took a trip to Eye Masters to try on a couple pairs of frames. In search for my prescription (which is nowhere to be found) I discovered something that I wish I hadn’t just shoved in the glove compartment of my car…it was a farewell letter from one of my best friends, Mr. Erik Bondehagen. He gave it to me the night before I left to move to Utah and I had forgotten what a genuinely sweet letter it was. Mind you, Erik is not one to show his mushy-gushy side (which DOES exist people!) so this letter is just a piece of friggin gold. In his letter, Erik explained the story of how the Fab Four (Suzie, Bethany, Max and Erik) met, how much he cherished everything we had gone through from summer of 2005 to winter of 2008 and added that even the worst times were awesome because he learned something from them. It definitely brought me back, remembering how everyday in Claremont was spent with my best friends, swimming, playing music, laughing, loving…it was the best time of my life. So I finished the letter and quickly sent a text message to Erik, letting him know what an awesome letter it was and how much I appreciated the nostalgia. It’s always nice to have a reminder of the times you cherished the most. For the rest of the day, not only did Erik’s letter produce countless little pictures of Claremont friends dancing around in my head (literally, dancing friends), but it also brought about an overwhelming feeling of appreciation for those that I can happily call my FRIENDS here in Utah.

I knew that as I stepped foot in Utah, anyone who could even earn the title of a so-called “friend” had big shoes to fill. Mind you, I did not say replace. It would be utterly impossible and completely out of the question to say that anyone could replace my California friends, simply, a rather large void would need to be filled once I moved. And so it has been. Through the past year, I have made friends that most definitely make a life in Utah swell and I graciously accept them into my collection of wonderful people that I grew to know and love throughout my life in California. So here’s to all of my friends, from the coast of Southern California, to Utah...

All my life I've been searching for something
Something I can put my finger on
Maybe I've been living for the weekend
Maybe I've been living for this cyber soul
Every Friday just about midnight
All my problems seem to disappear
Everyone that I miss when I'm distant
Everybody's here

I need love
Cause only love is true
I need every wakin' hour with you
And my friends cause they're so beautiful
Yeah my friends they are so beautiful
They're MY friends

They're my friends...
They're my friends...
They're my friends...
They're my friends...
They're my friends...
They're my friends...
They're my friends...

They're my friends.

So....I really like this cake

but without the "S", that means nothing to me

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

And that is why....

And that is why you two have the best fashion sense! You are both adorable! And I would listen to anything either of you have to say about clothing! You should team up and become a super team! We could call you A and B! It's perfect!

Like this....


or blue?

or a little black dress?

But what would you wear them with?

The shoes in the last blog are super cute! But what would you wear them with?

Friday, February 19, 2010

love these

I. Love. These. Shoes.
