Fire

Last night someone kept calling our house phone. It was around 11pm so of course I didn't answer it, but after the 3rd time calling I finally did!! It was my aunt calling. My Grandma's* house had caught on fire. She had made it out safely but nobody is sure who called the fire department(I swear it was an angel.) About ten firetrucks came and it took all night to get the flames down. It was one of the most scariest things ever!!

Today my mom took me to see the good ole' house that she was raised it. My socks got wet because the water socked through my shoes. Everything was sooty. It was so surreal. I couldn't stand being in that house. All my childhood memories rushed back and I just burst into tears.

*My Grandma is eighty years old and has Alzheimer disease. She lives alone.

Big Bad Blazer!

                                                                    Big, bad Blazer,
                                                               Rip it up the middle.

                                                               And slide on in

                                                               Big, bad Blazer,


                                                               Rip it up the ally

                                                                
                                                             Start us up a rally
                                                               
                                                          And slide on in!!!

Happy Birthday Baby!!!

Today is my little Sisters birthday. Seems like only yesterday my parents told me I was going to be a big sister. So I wrote her a little letter....

Dear Sister,
I remember many nights praying for you. I felt so left out being an only child. Night after night I would give everything my little 4 year old self had in prayer..offering God my toys, clothes, and our dog(on a few occasions.) Then one day my prayer was answered!! Mom and Dad told me I was getting a baby sister. Apparently I told everybody that would listen about you. When the day arrived I remember helping mom pick out your homecoming(Don't worry in high school I will also help you pick out the homecoming dress!) outfit. I wouldn't wait to hold you! One day later we were introduced.

I remember your blonde curls, and soft baby skin. Mom would let me hold you in my arms while I was watching a movie and I would explain the whole movie to you. Your tomboy stage hasn't quite worn off yet but I love it! I cant imagine my sister with a fairy wand instead of a sword. I love how you are tough on the outside but soft on the inside.

I hope to spend many more birthdays with you baby girl. Remember through thick and thin I will always be there for you no matter what. You ever get thrown in jail..Ill bail you out any day!! I'm excited about the future we will share together. Our weddings, the many nieces and nephews I'm expecting from you, and most of all the memories that I hope we have together.

Love, Your Sister

"Not Me" Monday!



Today my friend did not get someone elses gum stuck in her hair before band class. I did not rush her to the kitchen, find a jar of peanut, stick my finger in it, and proceed to place it in her hair. After not getting the gum out, I did then not put her head in the sink and spray her into head with water. That would just be crazy!

In my consumer economics class we do not have the best teacher in the world!! My teacher does not get off subject so easily..are conversations have not been about calves, abortion,..etc. instead of consumer economics.

Top Favorite Romantic Movies

1. The Notebook
My all time favorite romantic movie ever! Who doesn't love the story of a rich girl and a poor boy falling in love!? Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams have such great chemistry which makes the movie come alive. Everybody dreams about an Alli and Noah love story.

2. The Time Travelers Wife
Another great love story with Rachel McAdams! This movie is a great example in showing you cant help who you fall in love with.

3. A Walk To Remember
Popular/rebellious boy falls in love with not so popular/ Preachers daughter. I love how Landon does everything he can to make Jamie's dreams come true. It is a sweet movie.

4. Titanic
Who doesn't love the Titanic? This movie makes so many emotions come out. You go from laughing to crying to being scared. There is something magical about this love story between poor Jack and rich Rose.

5. How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days
Love this movie! It is a hilarious love story. Andie is trying to write an article about getting rid of a guy, while Ben needs to stay with her in order to win a campaign. It is a funny movie with a cute ending.

6. Grease
Oh those summer nights! One of the most famous romantic movies ever without doubt. This is a romantic movie with plenty of music, plenty of dance and lots of feelings. Bad boy falls in love with good girl once again.

7. 50 First Dates
Drew Barrymore is the girl who suffers from memory loss, and Adam Sandler is the playboy who falls in love with her. The relationship that everybody thinks will never work out!

8. Sweet Home Alabama
Reese Witherspoon plays the small town girl who moves to the big city and gets a career. She’s getting married but first she needs to divorce her teenage love from the hometown. She realizes that what she had before in the south was far more perfect than the life she had in New York.

9. Sleepless In Seattle
Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan are playing the lead characters in this extremely funny and entertaining movie. This is one of those classic romantic movies that you should see.

10. P.S. I love you
This movie is definitely a tear jerker.This tale about love, life and death follows Holly Kennedy played by Hilary Swank – who was left alone, literally, by her Irish hubby Gerry, played by Gerard Butler. This movie is all about letting go and looking onward.

Dreams

I love dreaming! Even though I dont remember the majority of them. My favorite dreams are the ones that wake you up in the middle of the night and you dont know why. I know that's weird but then again it makes me laugh.

In dreams, we enter a world that's entirely our own. ~Steven Kloves, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (movie)

1. You Forget 90% of Your Dreams

Within 5 minutes of waking, half of your dream is forgotten. Within 10, 90% is gone.

2. Blind People also Dream
People who became blind after birth can see images in their dreams. People who are born blind do not see any images, but have dreams equally vivid involving their other senses of sound, smell, touch and emotion.

3. Everybody Dreams
Every human being dreams (except in cases of extreme psychological disorder). If you think, you are not dreaming, you just forget your dreams.

4. In Our Dreams We Only See Faces, That We already Know
Our mind is not inventing faces – in our dreams we see real faces of real people that we have seen during our life but may not know or remember. We have all seen hundreds of thousands of faces throughout our lives, so we have an endless supply of characters for our brain to utilize during our dreams.

5. Not Everybody Dreams in Color
A full 12% of sighted people dream exclusively in black and white. The remaining number dream in full color. Studies from 1915 through to the 1950s maintained that the majority of dreams were in black and white, but these results began to change in the 1960s. Today, only 4.4% of the dreams of under-25 year-olds are in black and white. Recent research has suggested that those changing results may be linked to the switch from black-and-white film and TV to color media.

6. Dreams are Symbolic
If you dream about some particular subject it is not often that the dream is about that. Dreams speak in a deeply symbolic language. Whatever symbol your dream picks on it is most unlikely to be a symbol for itself.

7. Emotions
The most common emotion experienced in dreams is anxiety. Negative emotions are more common than positive ones.

8. You can have four to seven dreams in one night.
On average, you can dream anywhere from one or two hours every night.

9. Animals Dream Too
Studies have been done on many different animals, and they all show the same brain waves during dreaming sleep as humans. Watch a dog sleeping sometime. The paws move like they are running and they make yipping sounds as if they are chasing something in a dream.

10. Body Paralysis
Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep is a normal stage of sleep characterized by rapid movements of the eyes. REM sleep in adult humans typically occupies 20-25% of total sleep, about 90-120 minutes of a night’s sleep.
During REM sleep the body is paralyzed by a mechanism in the brain in order to prevent the movements which occur in the dream from causing the physical body to move. However, it is possible for this mechanism to be triggered before, during, or after normal sleep while the brain awakens.

11. Dream Incorporation
Our mind interprets the external stimuli that our senses are bombarded with when we are asleep and make them a part of our dreams. This means that sometimes, in our dreams, we hear a sound from reality and incorporate it in a way. For example you may be dreaming that you are in a concert, while your brother is playing a guitar during your sleep.

12. Men and Women Dream Differently
Men tend to dream more about other men. Around 70% of the characters in a man’s dream are other men. On the other hand, a woman’s dream contains almost an equal number of men and women. Aside from that, men generally have more aggressive emotions in their dreams than the female lot.

13. Precognitive Dreams
Results of several surveys across large population sets indicate that between 18% and 38% of people have experienced at least one precognitive dream and 70% have experienced déjà vu. The percentage of persons that believe precognitive dreaming is possible is even higher, ranging from 63% to 98%.

*Precognition, also called future sight, refers to perception that involves the acquisition of future information that cannot be deduced from presently available and normally acquired sense-based information.

14. If you are snoring, then you cannot be dreaming.
This fact is repeated all over the Internet, but I’m a bit suspicious whether it’s really true as I haven’t found any scientific evidence to support it.

5 Question Friday


1. Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?

Alexis Bledel kind of looks like me...or that girl from Juno! I loved that movie.

Unlike Mama M. I was a cool kid.

I don't remember having very much fun my first few times but the last time was a blast! Then again I haven't gone 2 summer camp since 3rd grade. lol
3. What sends you running and screaming in the other direction?

SPIDERS!!! I have been known to start screaming at 2 in the morning because I see a spider. I then run into my LITTLE sisters room and practically drag her out of bed 2 kill it. My parents refuse to help their poor daughter! They like laughing at me instead.

4. What is something you do that drives your spouse nuts?
Not Married.


5. What is currently your favorite song?
Nothin' On you- B.O.B

What a great week!

The past few weeks have been beautiful! It even reached about 70 degrees a week ago..and then this week happened....

I'm in softball and we practice outdoors. Sun, or rain, warm or cold we practice outdoors! This entire week it has been raining, and cold! Have you ever tried playing catch with seven layers on!?

And then this morning I wake up and look outside only 2 find....SNOW!!!

Not just a little snow...a whole 5 inches in one night! We practiced indoors today...after running outside and grabbing our gear from the outdoor shed that was blocked with snow drifts. Man, I love snow in April. Just makes my day.

Okay my venting is done!!

So how was your day?

Candy

My favorite thing about Easter is...the Candy!! Oh and of course the real reason for Easter. Which is Jesus dying and be resurrected for our sins. But lets go back to candy

I love the giant chocolate bunnies! I tried getting my dad to buy me the 30 lbs bunny...he wouldn't.

The jelly bellies....yummy!

The chocolate itself.

I'm in heaven just thinking about it.

Oh and I have decided that I could never work at a Candy store. I would gain at least 50lbs!

Stupid Car

Today was a beautiful day.

I woke up to my mother screaming my name( She just doesn't appreciate a good April Fools Joke).

But that wasn't the highlight of my day actually..this was....

I decided to take advantage of the beautiful day by taking a bike ride. Of course unplugging from technology is very hard! So I decided I was a great multi-tasker. So biking, walking my dog, listening to my ipod, and texting would be perfectly fine.

Until that stupid car appeared out of the blue! Seriously who parks a car on the side of the street any way? Don't worry I'm fine! But the next time I see that car...oh it won't be fine!
