Day 20 – Nick Names

So here’s the thing, my parents named all 8 of us names you really can’t make nick names for. So we have taken it upon ourselves to help name each other. I don’t know where some of these names have come from but here are some of them.
Dedra had gone by Bug for years. Only the older kids can call her that.
Kyle has been Short Kid or Little Boy for forever. I still call him that.
Garen has called me Bean Girl for forever. Mom would call me Gina Beana and now Garen felt it was okay to call me Bean Girl. Spencer calls me Flahula Walla Walla when he’s being funny. He’s also a turd.
I don’t really have a ton of nick names. I don’t plan on having any of them either.

Day 19 – Something I miss

There are many things I miss. I miss being able to only be a few minutes from every person in my family. I miss greenery everywhere. I miss being able to smell the clean, chilled, moist air in the morning in Washington. Most of all, I miss my Mom.

I miss the silly moments. I miss her yelling at me. I would give anything to hear her swear at me. I miss being able to call her and ask all my stupid questions. I miss waking up to her practicing the piano. I miss singing around the piano. I miss the music. Most of all I miss  the things that she is going to miss now that she’s not here. She won’t meet Spencer. She won’t see me go through the Temple. She won’t meet my children. She will miss out on a lot of things. I miss her so much. 

This Video is something that is a good memory. The singing isnt the best but the time spent making this video was.

I miss my Mama

Day 18 – The World of food

So there are many places that I like to eat. All of these places are places that I don’t have to cook. Haha.
 There is a Thai place in Poulsbo Washington that is amazing. I loved eating there. I miss it sometimes. Its been a really long time. Next time I’m home I’m going to take Spencer there.

Applebees! This is a great fall back. I like the food. I have great memories there. It’s a fun place. When I moved to Utah the first time my roommates and I lived at Applebees. We were there every Thursday to see Austin. We hearted him mucho. He was the best waiter

In Washington we’d hang out there too. It’s the same no matter where you go but the one in Orem is the best. 

 Wendi and Larry’s house is a good place to eat too. If I cook I old have to bring something small. Larry makes the best bread and Wendi can cook anything! It’s a magic place.

I love Ensign Ranch! I love eating there! There is always too much food. The food is always really awesome. I help cook but I am never the one to make the whole meal. We all get to be in the kitchen laughing and talking. This year Spencer and I made the rolls for dinner. There was more butter than bread. It was go good.

This is a place I never want to eat. Fairs and festivals are places that no one should ever eat!
 The food is greasy, heavy, and icky!

Day 16 - My Dream House

I have a list of things I want in a house. I also know that Spencer is going to be the one to draw up my dream house. He is very talented.

  1. I want my house to be brick
  2. I want a porch that wraps around my house
  3. I want a kitchen with 2 ovens
  4. I want lots of counter space
  5. I want to have space enough to have my whole family over
  6. I want to have at least 5 bedrooms. (Mine and Spencer's room, the boys, the girls, my sewing room and Spencer's music room/ man cave)
  7. I want these rooms to be on the larger side.
  8. I want a shed for food storage
  9. I don't want the house to be more than 3000 sq ft. I want to be able to clean in with out help.
  10. I want this house to be the house I never have to move from. Once I get this house I never want to have to move away from it. This will be my house.

Day 12 - My life line

So there are things that I get teased about often because I always need to have them.

Chap stick is one of the things i cant live with out. When I buy it I but it by the case. I need a year or two supply.

I need my cell phone. I used to think I would never need one. I now am one of those people that always has it.

Thats it. Those are my boring life lines.

Day 11 – TV... oh man

I’m not a huge TV watcher. I love cooking shows though. I love being able to see the different flavors being put together. There are some things that I never would have thought of! I love it! Now that I don’t have the food network, my tv only goes on when I am watching a movie or doing a work out DVD. Hahaha.

Day 10 - My Fears

Things I’m scared of… I would have to say my fears are silly. Well, now they are silly.
My biggest fear in life was the loss of a loved one. Not just breaking up with a friend but the death of a loved one. I lost my mother 2 years ago. That fear has been realized. That fear has been faced. It has made me stronger. I still cry and have my break downs but I am a stronger person.
After that my fears of stinking or having bad breath is just silly.
I am scared of being alone. I truly am scared that I will never get my own family, that I will never be married. I am scared that when I die there will be no one there. I fear no one cares. I fear I’m not worth it.
That is my fear.

Day 9 - My best friends

My girl best friend is Katie Marie. We met when we were 11 in Brother Geier’s Sunday school class.
We have had our ups and downs. We have had some really fun times and we’ve had some awful times. We have been friends for almost 15 years. I’m pretty sure we’re stuck for life. :) 

My Other best friend is someone that is for more than just life. He’s a forever kind of person. I met him through Derek and River. It was a blind date. I thought that I scared him away on our first date. Here we are 1 year and 8 months later. I love him mucho. He doesn’t love when I post pictures of him…. I am going to post just a couple. 

 Spencer is NOT going to be happy that i posted this picture but I have to say I LOVE IT!!! How often do I get to capture him being silly like this on camera? Not often!

These are My best friends. I think I'll keep them.

So I've not been to very many places. I'm going to tell you a couple of stories and maybe share a few pictures. Its not that exciting. I love the memories that are tied to these picture. I have lots of pictures but I'm only showing some because i want to have pictures for other posts.

My friend Janee and went to Wyoming for lunch one day just so I could say that I'd been there. I'll never go again. If i see one more sign for Little America I might vomit! It was a fun trip though. We talked and went to Wyoming. It was a party.

Rachael came and visited me in Washington. I picked her up from the airport and we drove to Utah! It was so fun!!! We spent the night at our friend Devon's house when we got there at 1am. haha! This was on the way home. 

This was that same trip. Still driving home. We ended up staying in La Grande.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Rachael and I went to Forks during her trip. That was really fun. We went to La Push. We also went to all the places that the movie was filmed in Oregon. It was a really fun trip.

Look at that blonde hair. GROSS! Okay so Camille and I went to Georgia. It was so fun!!! We went to all kinds of places. Rachael lives in a Civil War town. It was really fun.

This is Fort Stevens in Oregon. It was really cool. I took Mikaela and Courtney there shortly before I moved to Utah this last time.

This is Cannon Beach in Oregon. This was the same trip as the Picture before. It was really fun.

Okay so this is the Provo Temple. I moved to Utah. I get to see this every day. I'm a very lucky person. I love that I have a Temple right up the road. :)

So these are a few places I've been to. I've been to maybe 15 states. I've been to alot of little places. I have lots of pictures. I'll leave them to another post. :)
