Jill's Birthday Bash CONT....



So we all headed to dinner, at Texas RaodHouse! On our way my car was acting up again and getting a little worse. But it got us there! We enjoyed a great dinner and enjoyed watching Jill Get a little birthday cheer on the saddle! After leaving dinner, I realized that there was something prety serious going on with my car. The radio was now not working and the lights were dimming and the horn was a hilarious little squeek rather than a loud horn! As much as I was worried and MAD about my car, the horn lightened the situation immediately. It was so funny to hear. I cant remember the last time that i laughed that hard at something so minimal.. a car horn! We could barely contain ourselves. So I decided to take it to autozone quickly to have them check my battery. Come to find it wasnt my batterm but my alternator! EVEN WORSE! So, eventhough the night was still young, and we had to be at an Improv show at 10:30, i decided to take my poor car home. That was easier said than done! I made it about 2 blocks away when it decided to die altogether! AAHHH Here we are, 4 girls, about to start walking up my hill when we saw a cop come up. Kim and Shannon flagged him down and he gave me a jump!




Which barely got me home before my car dies again right in from of my house! Luckily my sister was home to give us a ride to Shannons house to get her car! Thanks sis! And thanks Shannon for driving to the show! =)

We headed to the Improv Show and then called it a night. And what a long night it was! Needless to say, my car is now fixed! Has a new alternator thanks to my wonderful uncle Lance! As stressfull as it is to have car problems, it makes it a thousand time better when you have your close friends with you to help you see the lighter side of the situation! Thanks guys =)

My first Real Post! Jills Birthday Bash!


So I guess Im just going to get right into it! I decided to start a blog, and here is the first fun filled event since. It was my cute friend Jills birthday yesterday. A few of us girls decided to plan a fun filled night of laughter and surprise! Shannon, Kim and I planned to pick up Jill and head to the Tulip Festival! Something we all have been wanting to do before it ended. The ride down began what came to be a night full of laughter, Some worry (I'll get to that in a sec), some quick catch up of the weeks events, and birthday fun that Jill has had so far along with some rain. So, to explain the worry part.....! As we were driving down to Thanksgiving point for the Tulip Fesival, My car decided to start having a mind of its own. Suddenly The "ABS" light started flashing on and off. Which started, of course freaking me out, thinking that my breaks were going to go out or something! My friends seemed to get a kick out of my worry and wonder, as to what was going on!

I'll come back to this shortly!

So, We get to the festival. It had started raining, and sprinkled on and off while we were there. So we pulled this huge Utah Jazz umbrella that I had in my trunk since last year, that I got at a game! Came to good use that day! As we walked up we heard bag pipes playing, which for those of you who know me well, know that I absolutly LOVE! We then walked around and looked at all the beautiful flowers!


Taking fun pictures,
of course, as we went.....





I got some very cute earrings for only 2 bucks a pair, which I couldn't believe and was very excited about. As we were leaving, I announced that this experience would be my first Blogging experience. This caused much excitement from Jill and Shannon! Haha Jill acted as though I had announced my engaement or something! It was great. Kim however didn't share the love!HAHA she has the same feelings about blogs that I used to! She'll Come around just like I did! =) Love ya Kim! So off to dinner we went!

The Blogging Begins

Well here goes nothing! My first blog! Im a little behind the times with the whole blogging world, only because I have always felt that they were such a "young mom" thing to do, which I am far from! But......my perception of blogs has recently changed drastically thanks to my friends Shannon and Jill. They are both single like me and have the greatest blogs about their lives! I just love how a blog seems to help you see the smaller things that happen in life and look at them in a differnt light on a dailyl basis. A blog seems to make te everyday things into more of an event! So here is my blogging attempt! If you wish to see what is going on in my life, the crazy ups and possibly some downs, here it is, but I mainly have done this for myself. I love my life and I love the things that happen in my life and the oppertunities that I can create. So here goes nothing!!!
