If only...

So, I turn 26 exactly one week from tomorrow...There isn't much I really want...but I got to thinking about what happened if for birthdays we got a present for every year that we were...So, here is my blog about what 26 things I would want...And may I just add that it took me quite a while to compile this list...I am actually very content with what I have now...But for the sake of the blog...


Borderline Obsessive...

I don't have anything super fun to blog about...but nevertheless here I go. I am being promoted at work...I will be Part-Time Key Holder...which is just an assistant manager....but it means more hours and a little better pay, which is greatly appreciated. I have been working mostly evenings....which means 4:30 to 9:30. So, I spend most of my day at home all by myself...then...when I get home all of my roomates are in bed because they work early in the morning. So, I spend most of the night watching movies...blogging...reading...and you tubing videos from So You Think You Can Dance! I LOVE THAT SHOW! Mostly...I love Joshua and Twitch...and Will. Since I'm sure none of you are as obsessed as I am and you are probably not going to navigate away from my blog over to You Tube to see what I'm talking about...I am just going to add the clips so you can watch them straight from my blog.....Enjoy!


Remember that one time...

This seemed like my kind of 'Tag'. Here are the rules:

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you!


For Your Information...

Yesterday while me and Ashlie were out driving we found ourselves behind a fancy truck and the back of it had a scrolling advertisment thing that would change every 15 seconds or so...and this was one of the panels....
Sorry it's such a crappy picture...but all I had was my cell phone but we didn't think we should pass on such a kodak moment...



Here are the directions-

1. Pick up the nearest book, turn to page 123

2. Find the 5th paragraph

3. Find the 5th sentence in that paragraph

4. Post the 5th sentence

5. Tag 5 people

Here is mine: "How passionately we love everything that cannot last: the dazzling crystallory of winter, the spring in bloom, the fragile flight of butterflies, crimson sunsets, a kiss, and life."
I know that I have already done this tag before...and I wasn't going to do it but 1. Laura tagged me and I couldn't not follow through..and 2. It was a good quote. And..since I have received no end of criticism for not tagging anyone in the last tag...here are the 5 people I tag...
1. Alayna Holbrook
2. Kyle Arnell
3. Jenny Wilkerson
4. Emily Bush
5. Becca Elkins


I didn't think it would come to this...

Lately I just can't think of anything to blog about...and I HATE not having a new blog after a couple days....I assume everyone is as pathetic as me and checks all their friends blogs AT LEAST once a day...sometimes twice or three times...and I don't want to disappoint....so even though this is another random questions and you answer them thing...it is sort of fun and at least it's something to read. No 'tagging' is required at the end...so don't give me any grief for not tagging.....ENJOY.....

Thanks Kevin...

Another tag...and I'm glad.

Okay, the rules are thus - Link back to the person who tagged you. Post 6 un-important things about yourself. Tag 6 other people and let them know you tagged 'em. Enjoy!

1. Since Kevin started off with something about his ears...I will too. I hate mine. I hate my ears a lot. It's not the actual ear part...but the lobe (lobe...that is a funny word)...I think my earlobes are HUGE and therefore you will rarely find me without a pair of earrings in and when I accidentally forget to put them back in after showering or something I feel very self conscience all day about it....BUT....I LOVE other peoples ears...and I like it when other people touch my ears (sounds weird....I know) Just ask Tacy...when we were younger I couldn't fall asleep unless I was playing with her ears!

2. I have a pressed penny collection...(I have been thinking of posting a blog dedicated to this subject so I wont' go into detail right now...but stay tuned)

3. I loath...and I mean hate with a fiery passion...jam...jelly...and maple syrup...and cinnamon rolls...and I'm pretty sure I'm the only one in the world that does. Even the smell of maple syrup or cinnamon rolls makes me very nauseous.

4. I find myself attracted to every gay guy I meet....hence why I dated Austin all though high school I suppose.

5. One summer my family went on vacation to out west with my dads sisters. I brought my Walkman and about halfway across Iowa I realized that I hadn't brought any tapes to listen to...So we stopped at Wal-Mart and my mom let me get one tape to listen to...so I chose Garth Brooks 'Greatest Hits'. I listened to that tape the whole way out there...all around Yellowstone and Mt. Rushmore...and all the way back. To this day I can still sing every word from every song on that tape...and when I hear one of the songs on the radio (not that I have country gracing my radio every day) I still expect to hear the next song on the tape.

6. When Jessie was a little girl, she had a HORRIBLE snoring problem. And, most of the time she would sleep on the bottom of mine and Tacy's bunk beds with me. Most of the time, while she was sleeping and snoring....I would plug her nose to force her to breath out of her mouth so she would stop snoring. The scary thing was...is that is would take her quite a few seconds to realize she wasn't breathing...so by the time she did...she would be gasping for air....(now that I think about this it was sort of mean). She did have her adenoids taken out when she was in kindergarten and the doctor said she had the biggest adenoids of anyone he had ever seen.


Change the subject...QUICK...

Ok...I was in desperate need of a new post for today to cover up my last one which caused much mayhem...who knew? So, I am sort of repeating myself...I did a blog like this a while back...it was like my second one....and this one is very similar but had a few different questions...and uses flickr instead of google image.
