IIIIt's Singles Awareness Month! Besides that little fact, I like February. Weather's getting warmer... and it's almost April! (Kind of..) Which means it's almost my Birthday!! Woot, woot. I'm super excited to be 19. Mostly so that I won't be the youngest in the YSA group. Hehehe... yep. That's exciting. Being the youngest was nice, I'll admit. It kept the creepers far away and the cool guys didn't worry about leading me on or anything. Buuut.. having people that are younger than me will give me some authority over somebody! hahaha.. just kidding. but not really.

I wish I could give you all some good news about my wall, but the truth is I haven't gotten past the white paint yet. It's not that I don't want to do it, because i DO, most definitely. I'm just worried that I'll do something that I'll hate and have to start all over. That would be no bueno. Especially since I'm paying for the colored paint.

So at the moment, the SuperBowl is going on.. and I'm EXTREMELY dissapointed in the commercials. Not only are they stupid and not funny, but they're gross! Come on, America. Let's have some class. But the SuperBowl provides a good opportunity for family bonding and delicious food. MMhm.. can you say drumsticks, meatballs, funeral potatoes, Gorp, brownies, homemade ice cream, and chips and dip! Woohoo, that's what I say. Hurray.

Also, two hours of the Office tonight. Holy Hannah! So excited. So very excited. Unfortunately it interferes with Ward Prayer.. which I've been to every week since I joined the ward.. but... i think The Office takes precedent, so I hope they don't miss me too much. Fortunately, we might have movie night here.. which means I don't have to travel. Good news there.

(wow, that was a nice touchdown.)

Speaking of Valentines.. (what?) I'm going to SANTA BARBARA!! Leaving on the 13. :) Do you know what that means? This is my 2nd Valentines Day in California. I'm loving it! This is the perfect time for a vacation. Plus, I get to see my awesome, awesome sister play Lacrosse. (I think Eric is probably more excited for this than I am, which is saying something. I only say that because apparently there are 22 girls on the team, and the only one that isn't single is our sister.. woohoo!) Anyway, I'm pretty excited for that. I am LOVING the sunshine lately. I will spend a couple hours laying in front of our windows, just absorbing. haha, it feels fantastic. I would DEFINITELY rather die of heat than cold. and I'll say that in the summer, just to prove that it's not because it's cold right now.

(haha, i keep getting distracted. darn SNL.. those guys are hilarious. I recommend Gilly)

What else can I ramble about? hehehe. Oh, I know! I've been having the strangest sensation today. Certain things will make me think of something, and then just a splitsecond later I can't remember what it was it reminded me of, but I still have the feeling the thought gave me. It's happened so many times today, and it's really fuh-ree-king me out. Anyone else ever had that happen?

Annnnd.. now for the grand finale. Larissa, this one's for you. You are the bomb! I am constantly being impressed by your many, many talents and your willingness to learn more! You are hilarious, as your blog proves, and I find myself wishing all my friends knew you so that I could share the happiness you bring with everybody! You are INCREDIBLE. :)
(oh, and you're cooking skills are top-uh-notch.)

Alrighty, that's it!

  • Daily Scripture Study!
  • Optimism!

  • Holding my tongue.


"Personally, I mistrust all handsome men. The superficial pleasures of this life come too easily to them, and they seem to walk the world as though they themselves were personally responsible for their own good looks." -Roald Dahl in Galloping Foxley

(Just to make myself clear.. I don't agree completely with that quote. I do trust some handsome men, but it's easy for me to see what he means. I love reading other people's thoughts.)

Umm...what is "Galloping Foxley"? I love Roald Dahl and haven't heard of it.

P.S. In some ways I agree and think the quote can be applied to pretty girls.

It's a short story. I read it in the book "Skin".. just a compilation of some of his short stories.

Hmm...I'll have to check it out.

I've read that book too.....It was a little creepy, but I WAS about 12 when I read it. So I just wanna point out that I am in fact younger than you, and that you will absolutely NOT have any authority over me!! And being 18 does NOT keep the creepy guys away!!!!!! I hate you....... :P Blargh!
