SHUT UP i think im in love! bakerella.com tiffany was over the other night talking about bakerella.com and thats where she gets all her recipes i checked it out and it was love at first sight! everything from the cookie dough brownies to the pancake muffins. i know by looking at the treats you assume i will be 300 pounds by the next time you see me... but you havent heard of my other obsession yet! the biggest loser! its on tuesday nights and so amazing! this season there is a girl 473 pounds! CRAZY! and no it isnt insane to eat your bakerella treat while you watch the biggest loser
i think i just opened up a HUGE can of worms. today when i was listening to my music on shuffle a christmas song came on. ever since then i cant stop listening! its like almost a sin. but holy because it has to do with Jesus' birth. but i will admit this isnt the first time ive committed this "sin". its gone on about every year. when the weather drops under 100 my brain goes ok time for christmas! ive never been a huge fan of halloween. hello im the girl that still gets scared in fern gully. if i can barely handle that you should see me on halloween. dressing up is fun but i usually pick something like a hippie or indian or ninja turtle. and thanksgiving is pretty much the start of christmas ( yes it goes a whole month long for me). so since im listening right now imagine how good my playlist will be at christmas time! im thinking 98 degrees and celine dion? what do you think!
YAY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
The virtual child is an online baby that you are assigned to raise in classes like child development and parenting. In my child development class our teacher told us by the end of the semester we will start to think the baby is real. We will be talking about it on a first name bases like it is our own child. She obviously doesn't realize who she is talking too.
When I named the baby, which was a girl, I went to babynames.com and picked the most popular baby name. Aiden. Later, come to find out it was the boys most popular name, my bad. My child had a boy name.
In class my teacher asks, "What negative things are going on with your baby?" I raise my hand and say, "Um, mine is ugly," (because it truly is). At 8 months it was so ugly I tried to make it grow faster to make it cuter. It got worse. The teacher then she starts giving me this speech about if I was to have a child in real life and it was ugly I would still love it. So then I start thinking
1. She thinks I'm seriously concerned that my fake baby is ugly
2. She thinks I will actually have an ugly baby!
Then the class pet chimes in about how no matter what my baby is like I will love it even if its ugly. Yes, she basically repeated the same thing as my teacher... who does that?) I raise my hand again and say, "That's alright I'll just marry someone extra cute so that doesn't happen."
The best part about my ugly baby is I picked the cutest looks, the other baby looks were even worse, I know hard to believe. I was supposed to pick what I looked like but after all cutest always wins.
I call the first one sloth and the second elfy. I can now never name my child Aiden. Boy or girl.
What I've Learned Being a Member of my family1. cutest ALWAYS wins
2. diet cokes, bagels, and chocolate is the perfect breakfast
3. when grandma says she "made" something its usually from a box or can
4. i am always the all time favorite grandkid
5. when a party starts at 5 show up at 5:30
6. the louder you are the more right you are
7. blossom has the best clothes hands down
8. we know all the words to "his hands"
9. how to pick out someone from safford/pima by the sound of their voice
10. when the docs say they're are going on a trip for work its mostly golfing and eating out
11. buy something new and exciting then a week later be over it
12. go away for school so you dont get stuck working at HFM
13. When you hear the lunts are coming it doesnt mean chad
14. if you think you are funny you can laugh at yourself
15. its easier to call heather and sarah twin
So this is my new room that has been long awaited. I'm pretty sure i've asked to re-do my room every christmas/birthday since i was ten! So some how i convinced coco to let me! Jodi did an awesome job! the big picture on the wall was actually from the streets of new york when jodi went! and she used her awesome connections to blow up the picture! everything is sooo cute! Jodi pretty much made everything too. the pillows the shower curtain! what would we do without her! oh yeah have ugly rooms/hair! Thanks Jodi for my awesome new room! i love it!
so when making a selection on my institute class i was kind of limited with school and work. so luckily i found the perfect class! wednesday (perfect) 5:30 (perfect) principles of leadership (perfect). i walk into the class and there is 6 people in it. i thought it was kind of odd but didnt think anything of it. the teacher informs me that this class is a lot of outside assignments and needs lots of participation. my eyes got huge and i was like like ok and smiled. he brought me a folder and then i knew i was stuck in the class no matter what. you know a binder that totally means there is no way you are getting out of this class. ha. so a couple weeks go by and i notice this class is a little different half of our lessons are lessons and the other half is planning things like service projects. i didnt think anything of this either (i should have but didnt). then on about the fourth week we are sitting in class and he rights up on the board IRSC and he says who can tell me what this means? and seriously in unison the class goes Institute of Religion Student Council. and then he says "yes and as IRSC we...." i really dont even remember what happened after that im pretty sure i mentally fainted! or blacked out or something! talk about shock of a life time! everything seriously added up so fast. i cant believe i didnt see it! the most embarrassing part though is on my registration for the class it says are you interested in being in the IRSC and i checked no. my teacher probably thinks im crazy. oh well it happens. all i can say is i am glad a sucked ashley in and got her a binder before she had a shock of a lifetime too.
so when i was looking at my friends blog (yes i am blog stealing) i found this awesome video of missionaries singing this great song! check it out if you've got time. another video that ive been watching lately is "rockin' the beer gut" seriously a song about a girl whose stomach is bigger because she drinks? wait till you see the music video! woo.... the best part is when the song goes "she had everything going on but the first thing that caught my eye she was rockin the beer gut" haha i really dont get it. and can we please just talk about lady gaga! oh my goodness i think i said it all in her name and if you didnt watch the vmas oh my goodness her outfits! she is crazy and the things that her songs really mean even poker face is disgusting. oh satan whyd you have to learn to be such a sneak? its not my fault i was smart enough to get a body!!
i love school all my classes i cant even pick one of my favorites. one of my classes is sociology of marriage and family. last monday we learned that a persons self esteem is reflected by what they wear. a boy in the class didnt understand why so he asked the teacher. the teacher didnt understand why either. i just thought to myself. amateurs. so i then raised and said have you seen what not to wear. then i explained to them that on the show everyone always has self esteem issue and they reflect this in their clothing by wearing too big of clothes or some crazy outfits. after i enlightened the class the girl next to me leans over and says i love what not to wear. hahaha best day ever!
