Thanksgiving was pretty sweet this year, I had two of them. One at my aunts house one at my house. My aunts house was filled with food and strangers and my house was my family and grandparents. Due to boredom, my sister and I created these magnificent turkeys and I thought the world should know about them. I did decide this year, that thanksgiving is my least favorite holiday. I don't know why, there is just not that much excitement involved in it for me. So enjoy..
I am not a huge candy person not a chocolate person but there is one treat that I love. Chocolate covered gummy bears. The sound of it is gross at first, but when I took my first bite it was love. Amazing gifts like these should not be kept quiet... share some with your loved ones this holiday season.
Yesterday was a great day. I woke up late, ate some cinnamon toast with my mom and then read the paper. At around 12:30 I decided to take my dog for a walk. The scorching weather was not our friend and the tired little slacker barely made it around the neighborhood. I returned home only to lay in my bed and watch fever pitch and then elizabethtown. I eventually cleaned my room, read some magazines and helped my mom make dinner. After some more couch time with the fam I went to rock harbor with Brandon(after a slurpee run) only to hear an amazing sermon on what it really means to worship. Overall, a really great day. No complaints here.
A new obsession/fascination of mine is Criss Angel. Brandon, Sarah and I spend our nights watching this crazy man perform all kinds or "tricks" But unlike David Blaine... whose tricks amaze the mind Criss Angel's tricks literally leave you scared and dumbfounded. The other night he pulled a woman apart... her torso ran away from her legs screaming. He then stayed the night in a hotel with a ghost and I can not even begin to explain how mystified Sarah and I were. It was crazy... people were crying and ran away. Some of my favorite tricks of his are: -lifting a taxi off the ground -ripping a woman in half, and then putting her back together -punching a man through his chest and having his arm come out the other side - levitating from one building to the other
As a christian its hard for me to understand how all this works... any ideas?
My sister went to her first Dance this past week. It was awesome to see her all grown up and looking gorgeous, Brandon and I got to be the unofficial photographers of the night and it was very fun. Although we took more pictures of us then the dance group, it all turned out alright.
I have so many pet peeves it's ridiculous. I thought I would share them with blogger world... so here it goes.
1. I hate when teachers take attendance by sign in sheet, and then never pass it around. I feel like I could have left so many times throughout the semester, or taken that sick day, or heck, even just slept in, but the fear of the sign in sheet keeps me going back. 2. I hate when drivers are preparing to make a right hand turn but stay fully in the lane, they do not in any way pull to the side in order to turn, causing me to have to slow down. Also, no turn signals... or signals left on. Makes me crazy! 3. Lake Forest Road. Most people hate El Toro, but I would rather take that road any day. Going up Lake Forest towards the mountains, is terrible. All uphill, all slow people that are going to turn into their neighborhoods. It is very annoying and I avoid it at all costs. Unless it is wednesday night and I am going to girls night at Kelsey's, then sacrifices are made. 4. The sound of people chewing, makes me tick. I cannot stand it. There is one person in particular who is the worst, but he shall remain nameless ( no its not you B) 5. One of my worst pet peeves of all time, is when I am calling someone or being called on the phone, and they neglect to ask me how I am. Selfish... maybe... OCD...possibly, but it gets me everytime. Especially if I have had a big event take place, like a test or a speech, its common courtesy, if you call someone to ask them how it went. And for some reason if the person on the other end doesnt ask, and I have already divulged into the contents of their day, it's over... Im pissed. 6. If a frame is crooked on a wall, I have to fix it, this is more OCD then pet peeve, but it bugs me as well. 7. Now I know all of these have been negative, but thats what pet peeves are, they are things that make you tick... on the other hand, negativity is a huge pet peeve of mine. Especially if there is nothing to be negative about. I understand bad days happen... but lighten up. This goes for sweating the small stuff. So what, you dropped food on your shirt, youre over it. no need to flip out. Tide Stick.. hello. 8. Un necessary cursing. there is no need to call your friend a F****** Crazy F******, its just wierd, and doesnt make sense. 9. Rude people, if you are rude, stay away. 10. Going to the nail salon and hearing the ladies chatter to each other knowing that they are talking about you. Its creepy. And makes me feel terrible.
So there you have it, thats only 10 of many, so I will keep you posted if any more happen.
