Last Days With Steph.

Well, Steph left on Sunday to go back to Boise. :[ Not happy about that. But we've had a really good last week together. We did a lot of shopping on last Tuesday. I bought new black and red rocks for my fish tank, and a new Asian decoration for it. I'm trying to make it match the theme of my room. I still need to buy a Buddha head for it. We also bought some twine to make a headboard out of the bamboo I bought when I was with Brent (see previous post). We also bought some string to make bracelets out of.

When we got back to my house we cleaned out my fish tank ENTIRELY and filled it with the new rocks and stuff. It was a huge project, but it looks really nice now. We also made the bamboo headboard, which looks awesome. :] Let's see... what else have we done... We went on a few late night Alberto's runs. mmm. Ohhh and we went to Hastings and I got three movies that look really good for $10. I got, The Secret Life of Bees, Milk, and Slum Dog Millionaire. We also rented and watched 9. It was way cute and realllly good. That's all I have to say for now.

Short Trip

Well this weekend was short but sweet. Brent came up Saturday night and him, Tyler, Liz and I all went out to Red Robin for dinner, and then went to my house to hot tub and relax. We watched some way old episodes of House. Liz and Tyler went back to her house in Pocatello. Sunday, Brent and I decided to go see Youth in Revolt at 3, but realized that Brent had lost his wallet. We eventually found out that he had left it at Red Robin, so we swung by there to get it and still had a few hours to kill. So we headed over to Starbucks and then to Best Buy to see if there was anything Brent wanted to get with his gift cards he had got for Christmas. Well... upon leaving Best Buy we realized that I had locked my keys in my car... Haha. So we decided we'd just walk over to our movie that was in 45 minutes, cause it was right across the street, and then just have my parents bring us the spare key. Since we still had some time to kill, we decided to see if there was anything good in Ross. Brent bought some shirts, and I ended up finding a nice vase and bamboo for pretty cheap... Upon leaving THAT store, we realized... "Oh, we don't have anywhere to put our stuff..." haha. They ended up letting us keep it there until after our movie and when my parents brought us my key. Needless to say, Sunday was full of failures. :P haha. But I had a great weekend with Brent. It definitely wasn't long enough, but I guess it was better than nothing. That's pretty much all that I have to say. :]

p.s. Notice that I didn't wait a month until I posted again? Hehe. :]

Procrastination at its best. :P

So, I really should be cleaning my room, but that doesn't sound fun, so I convinced myself that I need to write a blog first. hehe.

I got my paycheck today; that much closer to having my car paid off... haha. Man. I'm gonna be paying that thing off forever it seems like. haha. But I also am getting a little saved up for moving too. I guess I'm still planning on moving sometime around May unless something else comes up. Brent might be taking a paid internship from the EPA which would be in Washington D.C., but that's all I really know about the matter. And he might not even take it, so right now, I guess I'm just playing it by ear. It could be good for building his career, but suck for me in the sense that he'd be even FURTHER away and for even LONGER. But, oh well. It's not for certain at all, so I'll stop worrying about it. haha.

Speaking of Brent, he is coming up this weekend (hopefully), but not for very long. He would just be here tomorrow night and leave Sunday night. Oh well... One day is better than none at all. I'm very happy to see him. I've been missing him even more than usual lately. It just gets so hard. I think people should not take for granted getting to see their significant other daily, or even weekly... *sigh. I know everything will work out though. I've never loved or trusted someone so much.

Well, it's official. Ryan moves in 2 1/2 weeks... and I'm not ever happy about this. I don't know if it's just him for right now, or the whole family, but I'm assuming it's just him for right now. I am NOT excited for that. I love his little family so much. I would do absolutely anything for his kids. They are so cute and such sweet little spirits. I'm definitely going to have to visit them as much as I can, and hopefully, my mom is going to steal them in the summer for a little bit. I kinda feel bad for my mom; all her babies are moving away from her. I am so grateful for her. She is such an amazing mom. I don't know what I would do without her. I think that my family in general is just absolutely great.

I guess all that I have left to talk about is my hair. haha. I'm going back blonde. Jill, a girl at my work, just did more highlights. Here's what it looks like right now:

So this is the new year...

Well folks, it's 2010. Can you believe it?
I know I sure can't. I remember when it was the new millennium...
And look at us now; starting the next decade of the 2000's.
I feel like I've accomplished a lot this year. I finished high school in February, and beauty school in August. I've found a job doing hair, working with girls that I like. :] And I know that this year is gonna be even better. :] I haven't made any resolutions yet... I mean, I guess there's always the 'lose weight' one, but I don't know if anyone ever accomplishes that one... haha. I have been trying to run every night, but I've been slacking a little bit over the holidays... but I'm gonna try and keep it up. I can't really think of any other resolutions... I guess save money as much as I can. I'm moving out soon, so I have a feeling money is gonna be tight... haha.

As always, I have been an inconsistent blogger. Maybe I should make that one of my New Year's Resolutions. Haha. To try and blog more than once a month... hehe. I guess I'll start by filling you in on all my holiday adventures. Thanksgiving was great. My mom had eye surgery, so we didn't go to Wayne and Marcia's. Instead, my dad stepped up and made an amazing Thanksgiving dinner for us, since my mom had just had her surgery (what an amazing dad, eh?). Christmas came and went, just like it always does. The majority of my presents were kitchen stuff for when I move out, which we will talk about here shortly. :) Tyson and I teamed up and bought everyone a present together; we got my mom a new stainless steel garbage can for the kitchen, my dad a $50 gift certificate to Sportsman's Warehouse, and our Brother and Sister-In-Law we got Left 4 Dead 2 (they love Zombie video games). I got Tyson a new Xbox Controller, and he got me the Uglies Book Series that I LOVE. We, of course, went over to Wayne and Marcia's for Coffee Cakes, and then everyone came over to our house for dinner. I love the Holidays, because they are all about being with your family. :)

The weekend after Christmas, Brent, Me, and some friends all went to Lava Hot Springs to relax. It was a lot of fun, and I was VERY happy to see Brent. <3 He got me speakers for my laptop that look like a panda head, and some mittens that you plug into your laptop that heat your hands. *See Below*

New Years was kinda laid back.... I was very tired, and Steph was sick... We both kinda went to bed early. haha. But Brent called me and wished me a happy new year, and told me he missed me, and wished he could be with me... heh. <3

And now to the part about me moving out. :D haha. So I recently realized that I'll be looking for a place to live down in Utah in 4 MONTHS! I can't believe how close it is, but I'm super excited. No more missing Brent for me! However, I know I'm going to miss my family so much. :[ I don't know what I'm gonna do without my mom especially. I know I'm gonna be calling her every day. :P And idk what I'm gonna do without my best friend, Tyson. *sigh* But that's life. You've gotta grow up someday right? I'm very excited, but very nervous too. I know I'll make it though. :]

Speaking of moving. Ryan got a job 13 hours away in Oregon. This means I won't be able to see my little nephew and nieces as often. *sob* I love those little ones so much. I'm definitely going to be visiting them whenever I can. I can't imagine how my mom feels losing her baby, and then her grand-babies.

Anyways, I guess you are all caught up on my life now. :]
