So I'm being told that I HAVE to update my blog. Wow... I have nothing to say right now. So I guess I'll just say that I'm more happy than not in life. I'm excited to be married to Michael and be together... I'm ready to be done with the long distance thing. I'm happy I've renewed my motivation for going to the gym. (Thank you Mavvy for making me go even tho I was mad and didn't want to) And that's about it. Oh and I'm hungry right now. Peace!

Ring around the rosies, a pocket full of posies...

My friend Janae wrote a blog yesterday that really made me smile today. She expressed her own feelings/thoughts, and it is how I have felt for the last 10 or so months. It was very sweet and heartfelt... you should check it out if lovey stuff doesn't make you gag too much.

Her blog is http://www.shortestnae.blogspot.com

So it's almost been a whole month that Michael and I have been officially engaged. I'm so happy. The first week I was weirded out by the ring on my left hand. It was uncomfortable and I was so scared of losing it or hurting it in any way. Now if I take it off it is uncomfortable and I feel like somethings wrong. It's sad too because the ring is kind of sharp and it scratches Michaels arm ALL THE TIME. But I keep telling him to get used to it, because I'm not giving it back!! :)

So the wedding is going to be July 18th, 2009. It's a little over 4 month away. CRAZY! So we're busy figuring things out and looking through a ton of Bridal magazines!!

Other than the whole wedding thing, the only other new things in my life are that I've realized I want to start a group date night kinda thing. Have Michael and I go out with other couples and see a movie, go bowling, etc. Dates like when you aren't exclusive and you want to be fun, and laugh... I want to re-capture that.

OH! And I did my taxes and I'm getting an amazing return! So that's awesome...

Here's another thing- I've started going to the gym in January of this year. And I'll be honest I haven't gone ALL THE TIME. But I'm really proud of myself. I've been going to the morning classes and I love it. I love that someone is there directing me, so I'm doing the work out correctly. I go with my friend Laura and she's so supportive. Even when she laughs at me cause I look funny or do something wrong, I know she's there willing to help.

so yeah, that's all for today I'm sick of typing. Oh, if you have an idea for a honeymoon- let me know. We can't seem to decide. We don't want to spend a ton, but we want to have a fun, relaxing, romantic trip. Tell me your ideas and what you did for your honeymoons... See ya!

Fun, Family, and Hilary Clinton! Yay!

So first of all.... I heart sweedish fish. Okay... moving on.

Michael and I have had a "thing" with 11:11. And on our way back home from California, we stopped in Baker, CA for gas and drinks... and the gas shut off at $11.11!! Crazy huh? So ofcourse I had to take a picture... Oh and just so you know, the pictures loaded backwards... so we started at the end of the trip and we're "tarantino-ing" it. :) If you get the reference I'll give you a high five...

So Saturday night Michael and I got a hotel out in Anaheim somewhere. So we were pretty hungry so we went to Denny's and ordered "to go". While we were waiting for our order, there was one of those things full of stuffed animals... the thing with the claw where you try to pick up the stuffed animal and drop it into the bin as a prize? I have no clue what to call it. ANYWAY- When ever we see those Michael always asks me "hey want me to win you that?" and this time I actually said "YES!". So he started going for them. I decided I wanted to Betty Boop- but she wasn't budging. :( So anyway, we decided one more dollar then thats it! A dollar gives you two tries, so we went for a girl doll, and Michael got her and as she was being dragged over to the bin she fell out of the claw! So with the last try, Michael grabbed her by the feet and Waaa-Laaa! The best thing about it... is that it was a Hillary Clinton 2008 doll! Yeah... right...

So on Sunday we went to Portillo's. It's one of Michael's favorite restaurants. He grew up eating there out in Chicago. Anyhoo- we go there with my sister Tymbre and her cute little daughter Hope. It was Yummy. Well after, we went to the mall right next to it and Michael saw this sign. They spelled "portillo's" wrong... Awesome.
Michael with his amazing sloppy sandwich. :) I couldnt handle it... but my chicken sandwich was awesome!!!

Here's Michael "feeding" Hope. Hahahahaha! Hope had Mangos!

Little Hope. So cute, and just loving. She looks at you and you just melt. Anyway- this is a short one, but I don't really feel very well.

I heart my family, and I heart my future husband. :)

Telling someone to shut up... can't get better than that.

So today is a boring Friday here at WaMu... I'm here at my station staring at the blank "Blog Posting" page, wondering what my next rant will be. I've been staring at this screen between customers since 10am. No inspiration. But leave it to WaMu customers... they always come thru with being stupid, jerky, annoying, and just all-around horrible. So yay for me, my last customer was a douche and now I have something to write about.

By the way, I'm pretty sure that I start all of my blogs with "So". I'll be looking into that.

So anyway, I told a customer to "Shut up and listen, you never stop talking" about an hour ago. And stupid me, I still feel awesome from it! I'm so bad... and I love it. Hmmm... I was going to tell the story, but I just dont care to. All you probably care to hear is he was a douche, I am smarter than him, and I told him to shut up. LOL. I sometimes love my life, and at that moment, it couldn't get any better.

Goals and Fun-ness!

So all my life, I've been short and chubby. I've always had the "Like me for who I am" kind of attitude... But have recently had some thoughts on my life healthwise. I've had 3 "episodes" this past year. Where my heart starts racing and I can't breath. And after I catch my breath and calm down I just lay there- no energy, nothing. It's a pretty scary thing.

Anyway... (that ones for you Mike haha) I got my motivation this year. I'm going to turn my life around and make better choices for myself. My boyfriend who loves me no matter what - is just so amazing. So motivating, so helpful. I love him. He and I went to Gold's Gym last night to take a tour and check out the prices. The gym is awesome! It has a ton of classes that are free with a membership, Im excited to try the urban hip hop aerobics class and the spin class. There's the spin class room, the aerobics room, a pool for laps (YAY!), a sauna, and then a steam room (they said theres a difference but I can't remember what it was) a basketball room for Michael to play, and my FAVORITE is the "Cinema Cardio" room! It's a pitch black room with elipticals and treadmills with a big movie screen and movies playing all day long. I'm soooo excited for that. Michael is driving up today after work to go to the gym with me for our first time at Gold's and then after we're watching AMERICAN IDOL! Whoo-Hoo!!! So yeah... I love my boyfriend.

Crying Eyes

So last night I watched the movie P.S. I Love You. Can I just scream and yell at all my girlfriends who have told me how great that movie is?!?!?! The first 20 minutes is all showing you how incredibly in love this couple is. And then BOOM they're all sitting in a bar having an Irish funeral service for the man. He died from a brain tumor. The rest of the movie shows her trying to cope with the feeling of being left behind. And by the way, Michael wants to be cremated... I dont want that- and I don't want him to want that... but oh well. In the movie "Jerry" was cremated and she took his ashes with her to their house and put "him" on the end of the bed, would fill up a mug of coffee and set it on top of his urn for him to drink. Freaking weird at first, and then I really felt for her. She was starting her life with her husband, they both wanted a family, etc... and he was taken away from her, her LIFE was taken away. I was crying my eyes out last night for 2 hours. Because while watching the movie I would picture myself. And I know I would be doing worse than her. How can you expect someone to come back to work and just live their life without the person they chose to live life with? I'm not sure if it comes out right, but I would be beyond repair. Anyways, it was a good movie- but I'm definitely deleting it from my computer tonight. Its just too depressing to think of being in her situation.

Hair... Love... and other randoms

(Just a picture on my phone of the picture at the LUXOR... crappy but oh well)
So I've just got to say - I am LOVIN' my hair the past week and a half. ESPECIALLY yesterday and today. It was the first time in like a month that I curled my hair.

Monday night I went to be with Michael since I had yesterday off of work. So he woke me up to say goodbye when he was leaving for work. I fell right back to sleep- and about an hour later he woke me up again cause he decided when he was halfway to work that he would call in so we could spend the day together!! He's so sweet and thoughtful. Oh- and it's such a "whatever" kinda thing, but I was out of shampoo and so on his way back to the house he stopped off at the store and bought me a new big one. :) So cute...

SO! Yesterday he and I just dozed in and out of sleep, watched tv, and then decided to get ready for the day. So I did the whole make-up thing(it's been so long haha), as well as curling my hair... I loved it.

So then we went the the Aliante Station Casino for breakfast at the Pancake House. So here's the thing about the Pancake House....

(in imitation of Michael)

FIRST- the waitress was using a fake accent, which was just terrible.

AND B- I ordered an orange juice to come with the meal and at the end when we got the bill we realized that it was freaking 4.69 for the ORANGE JUICE! RIDICULOUS!!!!!!!!!

Anyways, so after breakfast we went to Fry's Electronics so I could buy a zip-drive thingy. I got a 4GB for 12 bucks so that's cool. :)

And from there we went to the Luxor to see the Titanic Exhibit. If you really really know me, you know how much I LOVE anything to do with the Titanic. I still have my ticket stub from like 1997 or something for the opening night at the La Verne Edwards Theatre. Anyhoo, we went into the Titanic Exhibit and it was so awesome to see the real dishes, clothing, glasses, jewelry, port-holes, and the huge chunk of the side of the boat. It was amazing. The best part (in my opinion) was where we walked into a room of the exhibit and it was a replica of the grand staircase that led to the ballroom... a guy with a camera told us to go stand on the staircase together and he took our picture. Mav was making fun of it, but I told him I would be buying the pictures no matter what. :)

From there we went to the Fashion Show mall and I got my foundation that ofcourse I cannot buy in St. George!!

And then we went back to the Aliante Station Casino for dinner at the buffet. It was pretty yummy, my favorite was the penne pasta. It was scrum-duddle-y-umptious!

It was such a great day. I had so much fun with him, no matter what we do, I'm so happy just being with him.
I'm so happy with my life. I have my moments of sadness, confusion, frustration... but it just makes my feelings and opinions even stronger about the good in my life. I love my family, my boyfriend, and my real friends. I'm so looking forward to 2009, it's going to be so great!
