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.

Super Fun Sunday

Have you ever had a super fun day? Well, I just had one. And even though I’m pooped, I’m still recapping the day for you- partially because I made the effort to take pictures for you. Lets begin.

The day started with a Royals game. Gotta love good deals $15 for a seat and a hot dog and a soda because it was family day. It would have been $13.50 had we found a 4th person- but none could be found 😦 It was just Amber, Elizabeth, and me (far right) having a blast watching the Royals v. Mariners

It was a close game. And we got to see all the stats we could possibly want minus some on our new score board! It was mighty fancy. Hey, I even saw a familiar name up there: Ichiro Suzuki. You know that the Mariners used to be my team- or did you know that?? I am used to live in WA- 2 hours north of seattle and then 2.5 south of seattle a bit later. Only been in KC for 3.5 years. That’s why this guy was familiar.

During the 7th inning Sheridan’s Frozen Custard said that if the Royals got a run then you could come by their shop and get a free hot fudge sundae. And whatdoyaknow- they got a run! Free ice cream for TG!!

Yep, it’s all gone. I was too distracted after I got it, when we were walking out to our car, and the garage attendent walk 200 (!!!) feet to ask me how tall I am. Boy, times like that make me glad I’ve got 2 buddies nearby. He was a creeper. And on our way home, I’m pretty sure I saw a drug deal going down. Let’s just say the Kauffman Stadium/ Arrowhead Stadium (KC Chiefs) isn’t in a good part of town. So I was relieved when I got home. Plus I got to hang out with this fabulous girl. I’m going to miss her big time when I go to school

We went to the pool and swam/lounged about for 2.5 ish hours. It was super fun catching up on everything that going on- plus we planned our next 3 weekends or so. Now I’ve got to remember it all. You’ll definitely be hearing about it- since a lot of it revolves around my 18th birthday next sunday, a week from today 🙂

There’s so much more that I want to write but I need to keep mum until tomorrow so that I’ll have something to blog about.

**Last week was like crazy hormonal and I as I stated yesturday- I didn’t want to do anything. But I am back and kickin’. This week I will be going to some morning spinning classes (yay!) and swimming. I’ve got a nasty blister on my right heel the size of a nickel that’s trying to heal- so probably no running or lifting (??).This totally upsets my training for the race for the cure that I was wanting to do on Aug. 10th… bah gotta stop writing. Ciao**



One Word

I was asked recently, “Nike has “Just Do It”; If you could have a life motto what would it be. ”

For me i think it could (almost) all be summed up by the word “uhh”. Really, why such a strange word TG? Because it can mean different things.

I can use this word when:

  • I’m lifting weights- except it’s more under my breath because I don’t want to be like those guys at the gym
  • I’m really stressed- that tends to happen around test-time
  • I’m really tired- I don’t want to be doing whatever else, I just want to sleep!
  • I take that first bite of cheesecake after being super hungry- because who wouldn’t say “uh…mmmm”
  • I’m upset/frustrated- ’nuff said
  • I cough, it’s usually a eh-hem-uh
  • I wake up and taking a big breath
  • I go swimming and am underwater- because something has to break up the monotony of swimming laps

I’ve told you my word; what’s yours??



I Feel Like Growling

Had a bad day at work. Let’s just say a 30 minute time out was involved (I nanny). So we went to the pool to separate the kids. I knew I should go to the gym after work, but I really didn’t want to. Until I saw a cute boy. Then I decided that I probably should work out a bit. So I went to the gym and ran and lifted- no swimming, I was pooped.

My fastest pace was a 4.08 min/km pace. (Does that sound right to you?! I’m not sure I remember) Whatever it was my pace was 4.08 something at that tall point in the middle of the graph there.



Smiles!

Today I took my nike+ for my run (I went after work- no energy this morning) at the gym. It was such a wonderful run! I ran about 2 mi in 20 min. (Sorry there’s no pic- wordpress is being silly) The course is rather small- 1/12 mi per lap- so it’s almost hypnotising running around it. Since it was Frisday night almost nobody was at the gym… it was so peaceful: but it meant no swimming today. I’m scared that a shark will eat me in the pool and nobody will notice since they’re all on the treadmills.
On another note… I talked to my roommate!**edited out**

On another other note… 🙂 I went to the grocery store today to get dinner and lunch stuff. I grabbed a luscous lemon stoneyfield farms yogurt and when I opened it at home it was strawberry! I was so dissapointed… Strawberry is yummy but lemon is almost heavenly. And I needed that after such a boring day like today.



Today is the Day

Today I get to see gym-boy! Actually his name is… maybe i shouldnt say that (you know, in case he’s reading… or if i soon become his girl friend and he starts reading my blog) So you get the point that he’s super-cute.

There’s one little problem… i think he’s afraid of me (mom stop laughing). He’s afraid because im taller. As a 6’3″ female i have had a tendancy of scaring boys without trying. He says “hi” to me a lot :)) but conversation doesnt stray much from the typical “how are you doing”

Anyways- i get to see him tonight!!! I’ll be “working out” during water aerobics and he’ll be teaching swim lessons. Maybe I’m getting to detailed. Maybe i should stop talking about gym-boy…
