★☆29 Somethings you may not know about me... ☆★

1. I LOVE mustard. By far my favorite condiment.

2. If I could do anything, I would be an Occupational Therapist.  I was in grad. school for this when I got sick & suffered a traumatic brain injury. I lost the frontal lobe of my brain.  I now would love to be a 911 Operator.

3. I had my tonsils out at 18 months old & my 1st serious stitches in my arm at 4yrs old.

4. I survived meningitis even though more than ten doctors told my mom that I would die. 

5. I am very people oriented.  I LOVE hanging out with my friends and family.  I love hearing peoples stories. I also love watching people.  Maybe, that's why I loved life guarding so much.
6. I LOVE anything with water. I could be in the water all day!  Wake boarding, jet ski's, tubing, water skiing, swimming laps, teaching swimming lessons, diving boards/tricks, tanning, Lake Powell, beaches, shell hunting & the Ocean.

7. I Love country line dancing.

8. I can make decent balloon animals.

9. Avocados are my favorite food (Guacamole).

10. I rarely have a preference of what I do on a weekend.  I am more concerned about having fun with who I am with than what we are actually doing.

11. I hate leaving people out. I hate exclusive groups that leave other people out.

12. I love to read the Cosmopolitan magazine.

13. I really read novels & series books.  I take a minimum of ten to fifteen books a week from the library.

14. Naps are essential to any day.

15. Traveling & Concerts are what I think about spending my money on most.  (I don't travel much yet but, want to.  I go to many concerts.)

16. I love being an aunt!  It is one of the best things in my Whole life!  (I'm also godmother to two sweet angels in heaven.)
17. I am obsessed with HUGE earrings and I can rarely stop myself from buying them.

18. I love my hair no matter what people say about the length.  I love that it is naturally curly but, it takes FOREVER to do it.  I do it straight most of the time.

22. I love my cats. Gus is my black & white tuxedo kitty.  Nemo is my FAT orange kitty with a stubby tail.  Hence, the name because nemo the fish had a stubby fin.

23. I love talking on the phone & texting.  I'd rather talk but, not everyone feels that way.

24.  I HATE HATE HATE shopping!

25.  I still love to color in coloring books.  I get new crayons & books every Christmas.

26.  My Mama and I share a special bond when I do travel without her.  She writes me a letter in a card for everyday that I'm going to be gone.  It means so much to me.  She will write on the envelope whether to open it in the morning or evening & I look forward to it everyday I'm gone.  (yes i am 29 & i don't care what anyone thinks.)

A Month Of Thanks!!!

The month of November is VERY special to me for many reasons.  First, November is my Granny's birthday.  She was my best friend.  Her birthday was November 18th, 1924.  She taught me at a very young age in the month of November to write down one thing I was thankful for everyday and put it in this jar she had.  Then on Thanksgiving we would all sit down and pull out one piece of paper out at a time until the jar was empty & read every ones things they were thankful for.  As, I got older she shared with me that I should try to do it more than just the month of November in my journal everyday.  I've continued this to this day when I'm journaling.  So, I'm gonna add to my blog the first week of November in one post and then then each additional week of November in another post.

November 1-7,2010

November 1, 2010:
  • Today I am thankful for my Mama because she is the most amazing person in this world.  She has had a VERY rough year & each day continues to push through her pain everyday.  She amazes me in her strength & determination.  She also believes in me & pushes me when I feel like nothing good is happening.  She has been my biggest cheerleader with my weight loss & I can't thank her enough for that.  She tries her very hardest at everything she does.  She is crafty, smart, funny, tough, caring & all around a great person.  I thank God everyday that she's getting better.

November 2, 2010:
  • Today I am thankful for my VERY best friend in the WHOLE world Larissa.  We have been friends for many years.  We met through work at the pool but our friendship has carried out beyond that.  I MISS her everyday since she moved to Colorado.  She also has had a VERY rough year personally.  Her husband Herman is in the Army & has been gone for many, many months to Georgia for training.  In the last 12 months she has had 2 miscarriages which have been very traumatic.  I was able to be there to help as much as I could for 1 of them but I couldn't physically be there for the loss of the 2nd one.  She has a VERY strong belief in GOD (no, she is not L.D.S.) & I admire her strength.  I also believe as much as she needs me that I need her & that God knew we needed each other.  She has seen me at my VERY WORST & VERY BEST & still LOVES me which is saying A LOT.  I can't imagine my life without her & treasure anytime we get to spend together.  We talk almost everyday on the phone which I am very thankful for.  I can't wait to see her in just a couple of weeks :)  I<3 my BFF.

November 3, 2010:
  • Today I am thankful for an amazing teacher named Mackenzie that works at 24 hour fitness.  She always has a smile on her face even when she is not feeling well.  She is the most upbeat person I know.  She teaches a few classes that I try to attend just because she teaches them.  She makes me feel like I belong in the class even if I am doing it all wrong.  She knows about my brain injury & continues to try and help me.  I NEVER thought I'd like spin class but she really makes it enjoyable.  She picks great music, has a great attitude, gives me rides occasionally (which I'm sure she hates...loves).  I'm thankful for her all around love & support.  I hope one day we can hangout outside the gym as real friends but I don't if she wants that.  But, I'm still thankful for all she does everyday.
November 4, 2010:
  • Today I am thankful for my friend Chantele.  She is one friend here in Utah that I can count on.  She lets me hang out with her & her sweet boys.  We do errands & fun things but most importantly we hang out & just talk.  We do have just girls night out too but I love hanging with her family just as much.  I am thankful for face book & it reconnecting me with her.  We met as elementary friends & then were cheerleaders together.  She was nice to me when other kids teased me.  Our brothers are the same age so they played years & years of sports together which put us together but, we lost touch when her husbands job took him overseas.  I'm so thankful for our blossoming friendship everyday.  I love walking/exercising with her & playing with her boys.  I love how beautiful she is outside and especially inside.  She is a very giving person.  She has accepted me with my brain injury & that I don't drive & NEVER seems put out if I need a ride.  I'm thankful for all the things she includes me may not seem like a big deal to her for me to just accompany her on her errands but I really do love just the time together.
November 5, 2010:
  • Today I am thankful that I am a member of the church.  I may not go all the time but, I believe it with all my heart.  I am thankful that I will get to see my granny again.  I am not going to go into great detail here because it is something that is VERY close to my heart. And, I'd like to keep it that way. 
November 6, 2010:
  • Today I am thankful for my brother B.J. & Sister-in-law Jamie inspire me everyday by what Great parents they are.  My nephew Cache is extremely happy & it shows by the parenting he is receiving.  Also, My brother ran/walked in my 1st 5k to support me & that meant a lot to me.  We talked & just had a very good time & I'm so thankful for his love & friendship. 
November 7, 2010:
  • Today I am thankful for my sister-in-law Jamie.  She & I started off a little rocky but I am truly thankful for her in our family. She really made my day when she let me feed my Nephew Cache for the 1st time. She also used my idea for Cache's Halloween pictures which meant a lot to me but even more she added her own personal touches to it and made it even better. Thank you for being understanding about my brain injury & continuing to try & make things work :) I LOVE being an aunt.
