I hate them. I'm pretty sure I have a borderline phobia. Once I went to the Spanish Fork Reservoir with some friends. I am 1000% confident that one swam past me and honest to blog, I thought I was going to die.

Here's what happened-

1. Snake spotted. I FREAK out, swim as fast as I can to the shore and proceed to get stuck because the edge is to slimy for me to get out by myself.
2. Jason does not care what so ever. (Please excuse his 70's porn star mustache. It will NEVER come back, I can promise you that.)
3. Willard is my knight in shining armor and helps me out...except he laughs the whole time and proceeds to take pictures of the whole saga.
4. I now am traumatized for life. I sit on the concrete beach for the rest of the afternoon pouting like a little baby while all my friends have a grand ol' time swimming with that freaking anaconda in the water.

My comrades swear there was no snake. I will give you my left arm if I'm wrong-I promise it was there.

If I brave myself this summer into going back, I think I may just bring my banana boat SPF 6 tanning oil and spend my time working on my tan. You win, Spanish Fork serpent. The reservoir is all yours.

Is it odd that, no matter how big the bed is, I always find myself sleeping on the very edge of it? I never "star fish". I am really comfortable snuggling up on the end of the bed.

The Carter

Have you seen this documentary? A-MA-ZING.

Don't worry I own it. I have a sweet sweet love for the man Dwayne Michael Carter. (I have a very large array of music preferences.) I was introduced to his music in the summer of 2008 and I've been in love ever since. I'm not sure if you're aware, but he IS the best rapper alive.

If you're not a big fan of rap, Weezy is probably not for you. He's constantly carrying around his own concoction of cough syrup to sip on and is surrounded by a haze of marijuana smoke. Despite those two bad habits, there is something about that scratchy voice of his that has a huge amount of sex appeal. If you can get past his "characteristically profane lyrics" (said in an article by CNN entertainment) you really do discover the true genius embedded deep in the soul of this musician.

I'm a big fan of Lil Wayne. Guilty pleasure if you will. So-Weezy, do me a favor and stop canceling all your show's I buy tickets too. You're on my list of people to see before I die.

Dear Summer,

I'm ready for-

Leisure reading in the hot summer sun,

Sun dresses,
Bathing suits and beaches,

bike rides,

a sweet tan,



and boating.

Summer you are not coming soon enough. Please hurry. I miss you!

A.A. Bondy

To my ultimate dismay, A.A. Bondy will be playing on Wednesday night and I unfortunately can not go.

If you have not yet heard him, I suggest you do. Right now. He is one of my all time favorite artists. When his first album, American Hearts came out, I had it on repeat for a very long while. I couldn't get enough of it. (If you'd like to know a secret, Jason and my song is on that album-Lovers Waltz. Take a listen, it will change your life.) His style of music could be described as a stripped down folk sound. It's all American if you ask me and it's an easy listen. He actually recorded that first album in the barn of his upstate, New York home! You don't get more American then that. His second album is just as respectable as the first, which is called When The Devil's Loose.

This man is a true talent and it breaks my heart that I can't see him on Wednesday. If you live in Utah and would like to go for me, buy your ticket here. I promise you won't regret it.

I dream of visiting the most romantic city in the world-Paris. Not only that, but I hope to be kissed atop of this-Although I have yet to visit there, I really do believe that Paris may hold the key to my heart.

On June 12 of this year, I will be running the Utah Valley Marathon.

In May of 2008 I ran my first marathon....and this was my face when I finished.
Yep. I'm pissed. I'm hating my life. The fractures in my feet are beginning to form and the only thing running through my mind at this kodak moment was, "what the hell was I thinking?"

Here's me trying to fake a smile for my mom-I still look like I am hating my life.

Running really is the best thing for my body to be in shape and right now I'm in need of some definite shaping. So-starting this February I begin my 4 months of training. Wish me luck people. 2009 was a bad year for my figure. Here we go "Hot Bod 2010".

Wanna be my running partner? Call me.

Team Conan

Conan's personal statement here

I hope NBC rethinks its current predicament and won't let go to the best thing that ever happened to late night television.

Conan. I love you.

Work Attire

I sometimes wish I worked an office job so I could wear cute outfits like this to work! Right now, leggings and a giant sweatshirt is my daily attire. I guess I can't complain too much. Perhaps one day I'll come to work dressed in a dress and heels just for kicks and giggles.

Beyond Adorable

I try not to post too much about the kids I nanny. After all, they aren't mine. But when I witness something as cute as this, I can't help but want to show the world!

Danni is obsessed with all the Disney princess's right now. She knows all there names, all their songs, and has seen all their movies. She is 100% a girlie girl. She loves nothing more then to dress up in a bizillion dress up dresses every single day of the week. For Christmas Santa brought her the entire Disney princess doll collection. She drags these girls around everywhere. I'm not kidding.

When we were watching Up! today, she wanted her "friends" to watch it with her. She set them up all in row in front of the TV and plopped herself right down next to them. I almost died.

I have no doubt in my mind that Danni really believes that she is a princess. What a little nugget, she melted my heart all over again today.

Update. Finally.

Before I started blogging, I always got so pissed at my friends for not updating their blog on a regular basis (uh hum, Mel J). But now here I am. It's been almost a month without a post. WHOOPSIES! New Years Resolution, maybe? I'll try.

My vacation was long yet quite eventful. First, I was home in AZ for 10 days. My mother kept me busy as usual. Cooking, sewing, shopping, and family gatherings was on the agenda. Then I ventured to California to visit two very special people. Mrs. Shea Miller McGee in Laguna Niguel for 2 days, then up to LA to visit Dane for the last two. The weather was wonderful there. Someday I hope to live next to an ocean. (And next to a Sprinkles changing.) Shea and Dane are two of my favorite people and getting to spend a little time with both of them was so so great. I wasn't too excited about going back to freezy cold Utah, but it was nice getting home and not living out of a suitcase.

Jason made it home safely after 24 long days in Chile. He came home with a nice tan, the lucky boy. It was quite the transition for him to speak English again after 3 weeks of strictly Spanish. The night he got home he wasn't feeling too well. I went home to get him some medicine. When I returned he was fast asleep on his bed. I gently woke him so he could take the pills I brought. He then proceeded to speak to me in Spanish. I just smiled and he then realized I had no idea what he was saying. It was quite adorable.

I'm happy to be home here in Utah. I'm even happier to have Jason home with me. Now it's time to get back to the ol' routine of things. I missed my little Danni so much. It's great being back to work with her too. We're sitting on the couch right now watching Up. She's still in her PJ's holding 3 princess dolls and she is trying to quote the movie. I love my job.

So there's my update! I promise to be better this year.
