That Tall Girl


My First Real Trip to Kohl’s

One fish

Two fish

Red fish

Blu… backpack!

Sorry, I couldn’t help but use the fishies as a shoe in to my new backpack when I saw this shirt. (thanks mom for hiding modeling!)

Now what gangsta wouldn’t want this Tshirt?

While at Kohl’s I got my school shopping done. They had an awesome clearance section- which had just the things I was looking for: (jersey?) knit skirts. I also got some tanks to wear at practice- they were $2.80 each. I know, I’m pretty awesome at finding deals.

I also got a new laptop today- since the pink dell ain’t workin so great. You can see it next to my new baby amongst my new computer garbage:

Yeah, it’s an HP. All my friends but one got HP’s. They all like theirs. Therefore: I got a new HP instead of another silly dell computer. Haha, it was very funny: Dad said, “Now you shouldnt have problems with this one. At least I hope.” Then I thought my baby didn’t come with a charger. Called Dad and bestbuy to complain. Then I found it. Then I couldn’t find my SD card slot. Called Dad to say it didn’t have one (it’s crucial to blogging you know!) then he found it. Then I tried to put in my extended batteru, but I couldn’t get it to fit. Had Dad work on it. Finally I was right: it was the wrong battery lol. Now I gotta figure out how to get the extended battery when it’s not in the stores yet since this is such a new computer and I leave town in a week- and its currently on sale for $60 off.

Now all I’m concerned about is loading the *edited out* security thingy. I might win an iPod if I do this before school! I’m all up for free stuff and deals so if you ever feel like sending me stuff, go right ahead.

*picture edited out*

Sorry for the long post. I think that it could be mainly attributed to my outstanding humor, so your eyes shouldn’t fall out just yet. I’m off to watch more swimming/ get ready for bed. I’m tired and have a busy day ahead of me tomorrow. It will be my last saturday in town and last day of work/ saturday morning water aerobics.

I need to give some credit to Crabby McSlacker for this portion of my post… even though I was already thinking about posting about it today…

We totally got an AC unit in our spinning room at the gym today. Well, we probably got it yesturday, because it wasn’t there on monday. But gues what was there on monday?? Fans. Yes, three of them. Praise the Lord almighty! I have been told that it has reached 90* in there recently. It probably doesn’t help that it is located in a “renovated” raquetball court/room. They closed off the top because it was too noisy… and people were getting hit with raquetballs :/ . (no gym-boy today; it almost made me cry 😦 )

As for the rest of my day- It was pretty low key, but still pretty awesome. After an intense spinning session I went to the library- yes I was still stinky… I picked up my books that were on hold: Anne of the Island and some Beverly Lewis amish book in the Abram’s Daughters series. Let’s just say I’m stoked to start reading these. Came home, talked with mom, had lunch, went to wal-mart and the dollar store, came home, snacked, napped, blogged, ate dinner, talked with my grandpa and aunt, and back to blogging.

As for my snack… well, one of them. I had a slice of watermelon.

As you can see, I like to eat my watermelon with a grapefruit spoon. It’s the only fun way to enjoy watermelon, you know. In the top left corner you can see my new toothpaste from wal-mart and O’s dramamine for her bus ride to and from summer church camp coming up here soon.

I can’t remember if ‘ve said this yet, but my birthday is on Sunday- it’s the big 18!!! OMG, can’t wait. I’m talking with the parents about going to a KC T-bones game. Don’t know if thats what we’ll do or not. For dinner: something REALLY ethnic.

**As for food, I’m thinking of starting a food diary type blog, kinda like Kath has… but mine wont be as good. I’m sure it will be interesting as I have a situation that not many other bloggers will have: *edited out* trying to lose weight while eating res. hall food. **



Oh my!

Oh my- that’s all I can say… lo siento para no escribiendo mas noticias ayer (Sorry for not writing [posts] yesturday) (need to keep up my spanish you know 😉 )

it has been crazy with work and hanging with friends, grocery shopping and dealing with the power going out. Let me start with yesturday:

Went to work, although I’d rather be in Italy drinking a margarita on the beach. Got home and cooked dinner. I felt like I was cooking for a boyfriend. Although I wouldn’t know what that would be like since I’ve never had one. Anyways… Cooked din din for my friend H and me. I made mac and cheese, grilled chicken,  green beans and salad. I could show you some pictures but that would be boring.

H and I watched the Darjeeling Limited. Goodness it’s cast had Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Bill Murray, and Natalie Portman to name a few. It was a cute movie- and it’s at RedBox- thats means 1 dolla baby, or free if you get a large soda at Mickey D’s.

I went to bed pooped and woke up and had to go back to work. Get home from work, made pizza for my friend M and me. From dinner we went to Bed Bath and Beyond and then to Target to look at college stuff. Got home and the power’s out. Lovely, no internet.

Well, that was my last two days. Hope you enjoyed reading about as much as I enjoyed living it. And does anyone have any “wierd-things” suggestions like nail clippers or fabric softener that I might forget without your help?



Happy Fathers Day!

Today was pretty low key, except it wasn’t. After we got home from church and ate lunch Dad opened his gifts. I got him a cool wire basket for flipping fish on the grill:

Later Dad took me to Costco and to Best Buy where I got a new iPod and Nike+iPod to track my training progress on my new program to get ready to run a 5K- eventually I want to do a triathlon.

And since I haven’t posted a picture of my new laptop:

Oh and we got Dad a new toupee (it’s blue, so it doesn’t really match his hair, oh well)
