    Well, Halloween wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Cassandra, Kylee, Abby, Marissa, Isaac, Laken, and I went to the YSA all area dance thing at the church by the temple. I dressed up as a smurf :) and Cass and Riss were twins. Cass was the Evil one and Riss was the Good one. AS it should be. We just walked around for a while because we really just wanted to dance. We danced for about a half hour before we decided to bounce and go watch a movie.. and Alex met up with us! I really wanted to watch PS. I love you or My sister's keeper. I know I know.. it's Halloween, you should watch a scary movie right? Well, i don't think there are any good ones right now. So yeah. But Isaac got one that was called, "Burning Bright" It was about a killer tiger. haha it was entertaining. To say the least. haha.
Anyways, what i've decided is that I think i'm done spending money to dress up for one night. Not worth it to me. You could call me a party pooper. But it wasn't HORRIBLE.
Cass - Evil Twin. Me - Smurf (in my not so flattering dress)
Good Twin, Evil Twin, Smurfette :)
My Bestest :)
Absolutely love them.

Overall, I had SUCH  good weekend, surrounded by great people :) 

Love you all :)

Peace & Blessings

Villa Time :)

      Right now I am at The Villa Coffee House in down town Idaho Falls. I feel like I should be in NYC or Seattle. I've never had an urge to live in either of those cities, but its fun to pretend. So that's what I'm going to do for the next hour or so. Pretend like i'm in a city and its raining.. because thats how it is in the movies :)
OH, and i'm drinking a Peppermint & White Chocolate Steamer :) DELICIOUS!!!

Time to Blog, for real. I've come to realize that I don't really like Halloween, the haunted houses are fun.. along with the corn mazes and such but over all, I don't like it. The best part of Halloween for me is seeing my siblings all dressed up in their costumes. But really, what is Halloween for people when they get older? Dressing up is a blast, don't get me wrong.. but then what do you do? There's dance parties but everyone feels the need to basically have sex with their clothes on. And Halloween just gives girls an excuse to dress up like whores and its ok. I hate that. And I feel like my costumes are always lame. So... Anyways, I don't know what I'll do tonight, I might just hand out candy. 
There's my rant on Halloween. 

Want to hear something really exciting?! My good friend Joy & I are leaving for Washington DC in less than 2 weeks! AH! I can't believe it's coming so soon! Time flies by! We're going there to visit our friend Jake who is going to school there and we're staying a whole week! ah! :) It's going to be so much fun. I'll definitely be blogging while there... maybe :) I don't even know what all we're going to be doing while there.. but hey, we're in DC!! There's lots of stuff to do :) 
We will be reunited soon enough :)

Oh and did I mention that jake comes home 5 days after we get back? He can't get enough of us :)

Well, I'm glad the blog challenge is over so I can just bore you with these little rants and excitement of my life.

Just so you all know, things are really looking up. I have a few people in my life that definitely making things better :) I absolutely love my friends. Who are always there for me when I need them. Thank you. 

Love you all. 

Peace & Blessings

To You :)

Day 22 - A letter to someone who has hurt you recently.

To whom it may concern...
I guess the reason you hurt me is because I let it happen. 
I let you let me make the decisions I made when I shouldn't have let you do that to me.
I needed to be strong and wasn't and you took over.
It wasn't very nice of you... but I guess I should be mad at myself.
Right? Eh.. 
Well, I guess it's time you're out my life for good.
And I have a really really good friend in my life that will make sure 
you're not in it :)

Love, Me :)

That was weird...
Love you all :)

Peace & Blessings

Day 18 - Something you crave a lot

so, something I crave a lot is laughter. Cheesy? Maybe. But so true. Sometimes when I'm bored I think to myself, " I really wish something funny would happen.." and something else I crave is to be social..haha sometimes being alone is great, but other times I wish I had someone around me all the time to talk to. Thank you for cellphones :) 

One thing I also crave is....

I really like it :)

Well, I'm off to go sell potatoes with Mr. Tyler. If you need some, come to the corner on 17th by Carlisle Beauty! We'll be selling them for a good portion of the day! 50lbs for 20 dollars :)
Love you all

Peace and Blessings :)

I absolutely adore this woman. My mama :)
My papa! The one who knows where the cool kids hangout :)
The step-mama, who keeps us young.
The older brother, protector & best friend.
The little brother, who is growing up WAY too fast.
The younger sister, who has way too many boyfriends.
The younger brother, who I worry about too much :)
The little-est who I love with my whole ENTIRE heart :)

I forgot about this photo... my dad's side of the family. BIG. :) LOVE.

I hope you enjoyed this :) It's my family and i'd be lost without them. 
Love you all.

Peace & Blessings
