The Happiest Place on Earth!

My little sister Annie turned 12 on Wednesday. She's never been to Disneyland, so that was her birthday present. It was just going to be her and my mom, but last minute I snuck my way in on the action! (The one perk of not being employed is that you can abandon your life for a few days and that's totally okay).

We had SO MUCH FUN! Annie loved every second, and it was so fun to watch her so thoroughly enjoy it :o)

Here was my FAVORITE part of the trip. We were on splash mountain: Annie in the front, my mom second, and me third. We were having a blast when we came to the drop at the end. Right as we started going over the edge my mom looks at the drop. In a terribly frightened and alarmed voice she says, "Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh!" Each work got louder and more frighted. Annie and I could.not.stop.laughing!

It's a Small World.

I let Annie drive... bad news!

Yeah, I could totally be Zerg.

Annie and Alice are supposedly the same age...

A classic first time picture :o)

I think I'd have that look on my face too if there was a robot attack!

Big Thunder Mountain! I love that ride!!!

We're that strong! Well, Annie is... I just look helpless.

We walked my mom into the round. She had to take a little power nap!

Happy birthday Annie!!!! I am so luck to have you as a sister. I love you! Thanks for the great memories!

Farwell Vermin!

We've been having some bug issues the last couple months. Tanner has been a really great bug killer {which makes me love him even more}, but it was time to do more than that... We got our house sprayed--inside and out--today. Hallelujah! Good bye all you nasty, sick, dirty bugs.

Poor Broken Beast!

This is Stella.

I believe you've already met.

Well, she's broken... She won't start. I put in a new battery (it was still under warranty--thankfully!) and she still won't start. That means it's the alternater or the starter. I don't really know what either of those things are--when someone says either of those two words, all I hear is "money".

Poor broken beast...

How much longer...

School has started. I am a certified, ASU graduated, Summa Cum Laude, fun loving, children loving teacher. But I'm not REALLY a teacher, see. I don't have a teaching job.

I have been praying that things would work out. All along I have felt like things would be okay, but... my hope is starting fade... I am trying to stay positive, but it gets harder with every passing day...

I went to college, did well, and what did I come out with...? Nothing but thousands of dollars in student loans.

High School Musical (4)

I'm sure all of you (or at least most of you) know about these movies.

Well, the other night I saw this SNL skit. HILARIOUS! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did :o)

Not Again...

About a year and a half ago I got a cold sore. Since then I've had about 4 reoccurances. They are one of the worst things in this world. Count yourself lucky if you've never been tainted with one.
Yesterday I started getting another one. I put some medicine on it, but it kept getting bigger: at a RECORD speed! As that first one was growing a second started on the other side of my mouth. They were so painful--they hurt even more than all my previous coldsores. I tried everything I could think and they just kept hurting and growing. I even started to get a sore inside my lip. it was the worst! I just wanted to die, or cut my lips off--anything but feel that blasted pain.
THEN, the most amazing this happened...
I woke up. And my mouth is fine! It's a miracle. What a blessing. I have been happy all day knowing that my mouth is fine!

Do you remember a few months ago when I made this gem?

Well... After I made that purse and my mom made some for a church activity we decided to make a bunch to sell.

Here are a few of the purses we came up with:

Go HERE to check 'em out.

Enjoy :o)

And if you want to skip out on Etsy, pick it up right from me, and save on shipping just let me know!
