I'm basically so sick of dumb people.
Who judge.
Who don't listen.
Who don't care.
Are selfish.
Are dumb.

Honestly.. I swear people this day and age don't know how to listen or care about anything besides themselves.
If its not about them, they like to manipulate stories.. to be about them.

Poor babies.

I'm so glad that I no longer have all that dumb drama in my life.
I'm glad to have those people out.

Saturday Rob and I made plans to watch a movie.
Eight O'clock.

I lost track of time and went to pick up the movies from RedBox about five after eight.
I called him on my way and he didn't answer and so I assumed he was just still in the shower.

I didn't know it yet, but he was just BARELY getting in the shower, the turkey.

So I drove to return our last movie to Hollywood Video on Center Street and came back.

He still wasn't responding.

I drove up to the cemetery, sat and thought for a little while. Then decided to give him the last five minutes it would take to get home, otherwise it was off.

It was nine by now. Of course, I was feeling a little frustrated.

So instead of going straight home.. I was thinking some more and headed down two-thousand and Geneva Road.

Finally, he called and I certainly did not let him think I was happy about it.

I played the mad/sad card and he knew it definitely was not something I was happy with.

Around nine:twenty-five I finally got to his house and he made some food and then we started the movie.

To make it up to me, he gave me a foot massage, made me popcorn, gave me the blanket... and was kind of a suck up.

I felt bad for being bratty about it, but its a normal thing for him to be a little late.

We'll see how it ends up next time we have plans and if he'll be late.

He definitely is too cute to stay mad at and tries to make it better :)

(older picture)

Friday night I had plans to go and play with Amber.

While I was watching TV and eating lunch I some how fell asleep.
I didn't wake up until seven or eight and felt really bad.
When I texted her she didn't give much of a reply and I felt terrible.

Plans ruined.

Rob had gone with some friends from work to go see a movie
So I just layed around the house for a while.

While talking with my dad we decided to go see Valkyrie.
I wanted to see it but Rob went without me
My dad wanted to see it but my mom didn't... thinking it would be bad because of Hitler.

So we made plans and went.
It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed the movie.
A lot.

We then went to his work to get more RAM for my laptop :)
Talking a lot more.. we drove home in the crazy fog.

Mostly we got out a lot of opinions of random things which was funny.

It was late when we got home, but a lot of fun since we don't spend a whole lot of time just us two. Maybe we'll make it a regular thing.


collaging life

In art last year I had to make a collage. It was the ONLY project I liked or even thought was okay.
It was actually put in the art show! :)
I love making collages now.
This is one I made during work today and yesterday.

Basically I wish I had more magazines just to cut things out...
So if you want, you can donate them to me!

I could spend hours and hours and hours just putting them together :)

I used National Geographics for this one so there wasn't much to take words from.
I could have done the whole cutting out each letter but it would have gotten old since I only had an hour.

Maybe I'll sell it for a cookie

up or down/black or white

Okay.. So really these aren't the best pictures in the world... or even good ones.
I actually don't like them.

But I am having this huge problem.

When my hair is blonde I want it darker
When my hair is brown I want it blonde.

So I need the opinion of which I should be.


Comment... OR add to the poll... or BOTH!


long week.

It has been a long week...
Last week I was thinking how fast the month was going.
Now, I feel like it should be the weekend already.

I think it has to do with the fact that we didn't have school Monday...
Which means our short day was gone.

Its been a long stressful week for no reason at all.

Monday I goofed around and just played with Amber :) We watched Swing Vote.. Secret Life of the American Teenager... Intervention... you know, the usuals.

Tuesday I "emergency" babysat for Jessica & Josh... it was a lot of fun playing with Caden & Kyler... I even took a nap with Kyler.

Wednesday.. is today. Who would have thought? I swear its really Thursday or Friday.

I'm so ready for the weekend and just can't seem to find the time to sleep.

My room has been really messy lately though, so I cleaned it and did my laundry.
I also balanced making Angel Food Cake :) my FAVORITE.. and then Rob told me his dad LOVES it too so I made cup cakes out of another box to share with them.

It actually started with making the cake.. then I ran to the store to get whipped cream and another box of mix.. then I came home and made my lunch (pasta) while trying to balance cleaning my room... then took out the cake and started the cup cakes... then tried to do my laundry and eat... and make sure I didn't burn the cup cakes.

I don't know why but I felt as if I had to do it all at once.

I do that a lot and stress myself out over it.

I feel like I've been lacking in my blogging as well.
Which makes me feel really bad

My goal is to blog at least once a week... that that so far this year I have had much to blog about at all.

ugh. Is it the weekend yet?



I know there are a few people out there that I no longer want in my life,
Nor care to even think about anymore.

They take things and twist them in their own ways..
And then there are the few randomly stalkerish people that read as well.

So, I've decided to go private:

But I first need the few of you that follow's email addresses.

I hate to have to go private, especially since there are so many other people out there that I don't know that have a blog yet..
But I have to do it.

So if you could please send me your email addresses that you use to log in and I will GLADLY add you to my readers list.

I should have it private by.. lets say this weekend :)


The day after Christmas Rob drew this for me.

Every time I look at it, I crack up laughing.

His head is a million times bigger than mine and he has a giraffe neck!
I have the big huge eyes that look like glasses and apparently my hips are a little lopsided.

But it makes me get all twitterpated at the same time.

I'm so lucky to have my family around that loves and cares for me.
I'm also really lucky for my friends.

But, I think I got extra lucky with him.

I could go on for hours (or pages)... but I'm sure that no one cares about the little things I find cute. And I'm about 103.56% sure that no one wants to read about it either.

Things ended up so weird and I never though I would get to this point with him....
Considering everything else that has happened in the past.

But here we are, and he's fully behind me in whatever I do;
Helps me accomplish what I need to accomplish;
or helps me feel better when I fail.

But no matter what..
He's there.
With his giraffe neck and big head to help and love

The end.

Olive Garden

My Grandma Muhlestein, Kacee, & I have been making plans to go to Olive Garden for such a long time. I haven't ever actually gotten food there so it was something we wanted to do since the AF one opened.

That was in October.

Finally we made it and it was so delicious.

It was fun to sit and talk with both of them and see what they've been up to.

We're even going to start a new tradition of inviting all the older granddaughters and have lunch every other month.


Whenever me and Amber play lately we've been sitting around doing nothing.

We're both getting pretty bored of it..
But no one can decide what to do!

So last night Amber found this long piece of paper Tiffani had and we made a beautiful mural!

It was so random & had a lot of our inside jokes on it.

We spent a couple hours drawing it before it was complete..
But I think it looks pretty amazing :)

We then played Boggle and ate pizza.
I seriously ate more than half the pizza and was sooo stuffed.

Maybe we'll start doing stuff more often!



Wednesdays are Rob's day off..
So we planned to go sledding since there was soooo much snow

Actually, we wanted to go after I got off work, but he had to do other things.

So instead, we went after bunco.

We were at Wal*mart at 11:30 looking for tubes.
They said they didn't have any sleds or tubes so we walked around calling different people for a while.

Eventually we went back to the lady we asked and she had luckily found two little kid tubes behind other items.

We bought them and went to the Lindon Park.

There were a few hills already packed down and ready to go, so we assumed it would be a good spot.

I flipped and landed on my head and Robert just laughed at me.

We decided to go off and travel to make our own path.

We had a ramp and everything over a fence!

It was probably amazing and fun and perfect..
Besides the fact I was wearing jeans and they were soaked all the way through.

So we went back to his house and had hot chocolate.. the best hot chocolate I've ever had

Then when it was time to go home, I got stuck.
My car wouldn't move anywhere.

Robert thought I was being stupid and just couldn't drive... but he really got it stuck more


Anyways, work was terrible this morning since I didn't get home until after two.

But it was still fun


My mom has played bunco since I can remember.
We used to make it a fun tradition to go out while she had it.

Now its my turn!

Jessica invited me into her group and last night was the first time.

It was so fun. She went ALLL out. Everything was so cute.

I didn't even do too bad until I got sucked into the blackhole table.

Everyone was so quiet at first and by the end everyone was great friends
Its going to be a good get away.

Except when I have to have it at my house...
Nothing will compare to how amazing she had it set up last night :)


two weeks later.

Finally, I get to go back to work tomorrow.
I've waited and waited for this day to come.

But today is Sunday. Let's chat about Sunday.

Our ward boundaries are changing. This has been the only ward I have ever known. There is a meeting tonight to let everyone know.. but as the 1st counselors daughter, I know already.

I'm losing half of my little nursery kids.

Today was amazing in nursery.

The older kids were gone since they'll be in sunbeams next week.

Our oldest one is two and a half.
The rest just came in between September and now.

They were so little.
So cute.

All but two will be leaving..
Emma & Sienna.

Of course, we will probably be getting some other little ones since the ward they're adding to us has 20+ kids in it.
I happen to know there are several people who are friends with old friends who don't particularly like me.

It will be a rough change.

I probably just need to move out.
Get away from it all.
Be a grown up.


3:00 in the AM

Sleep has become a terrible habit for me.
I need to break this cycle of going to bed late, and waking up REALLY late.

Work is going to be hard.

But here it is, I've been sleepy since 9:00 PM and its now 3.
Makes no sense to me.

So instead I've been getting prepped for school.
Its not til May 6th though.
I'm going insane.

I received my OFFICIAL acceptance letter, did the online orientation, emailed my advisors, emailed my High School Counselor to get my transcript.
And now I wait.

I have to get cleared to be able to register first..
And my advisors will help me make sure I'm taking the right classes to be able to major in Elementary Education since they don't have a Special Education program at UVU yet.
So, if all elese fails.. I move to BYU when I'm ready to get the other courses out of the way.

Maybe I'll want to just stay normal education, or have a double major.

My life is finally taking shape.

And I'm scared to death.
And sleepless.


New Years Eve/New Years

Scott & Robert got in a fight.. Robert ended up with a scratch on his head
Scott's "friends"
Jessica during "Would You Rather..." challenge

Jessica's challenge was she had to touch peoples faces and guess who it was. Grandma wasn't playing, but it was Rob's idea to have her feel grandma's face. Wonderful reaction for grandma's self confidence

Would You Rather... game.

He obviously loves me.

Scott & Emily


Scott & Emily


Scott, Robert & Grandma
Another one of Jessica's challenges. She had to have a spoon in her mouth for two full turns. She was basically eating her spit like soup!

For New Years Eve, I went over to the Mason's and played games. First, I had to attempt to get Robert to calm down since he was mad from some internet thing I still don't understand. He finally did and we went in to play games. The first game we played was called "Would You Rather..." and it was a lot of fun. There was a lot of debating and talking. It wasn't a game to see who could win or lose.. it was a get people talking game.
Next we played a game "What's Yours Like?" and everyone took everything dirty. By everyone I probably just mean Scott & Rob. There is a person in the hot seat and they have to try and guess the word on the card. Then everyone else gives hints.. like if the word was "hair" .. after being asked what theirs is like, you could respond "Mine was gone when I turned 40" "Mine's long" "Mine's dead" "Mine is crazy" "I hate mine"
Basically hints that don't help at all.
Janet gave all the funny ones that made no sense at all.

We gave up on that quickly and switched to the Family Feud DVD game.
Boys vs. Girls. Boys dominated and girls didn't even get one point.
We only got one strike instead of three. Which was retarded.

Then it was time for New Years!
Caden woke up and Rob did his fireworks from Wyoming.

Scott and Emily left, Stan & Janet went to sleep..
So it left me, Rob, Jess & Caden.

Geez Caden was hyper.
He was bouncing off the walls and was eating the chips like he will never eat again.

Rob thought it would be funny to wrestle, tickle, bite.. everything.
No matter how much I begged he wouldn't stop. I got my face in the chip bowl, my head against the piano..
I was all over the place.

He said he was sorry and we got over it.
Jessica & Caden went to bed some time after one and me and Rob talked for a little while.
He apologized some more and then I had to go.

When I got home I found a piece of paper in my purse. It was a note from Rob saying sorry again and it was probably the cutest thing I've ever seen.


The first day of the rest of my life:

I had a dream last night.
Along with my many many many dreams about work.
And the students :(

I was in college.
Everything felt complete with starting my life finally.
I've had a job ever since I was almost 16.
Working doesn't make me feel grown up at all.
Its more of playing.

So I woke up today, and instantly applied for admission at UVU.

I hate change. I hate being alone.
I get all the stupid fears of not fitting in
or getting lost
messing up.

So its taken me a while to get to this point.

But classes for the summer '09 semester start May 6th.
I'll have a few weeks balancing work and school,
then have the rest of the summer to focus on school.
That way, when I get back to work, I'll be back in the cycle that I will be able to handle both.

My resolutions for this year are already starting to come together.

1. Apply for college.
2. Attend college.
3. Move out.
4. Make a difference.
5. Do some charity work.
6. Love life and live it to the fullest.

I'm usually not the one to set goals for myself, because when I do, they never are accomplished even long after I set the goal.

Hopefully, I won't disappoint myself this time.
