New Job! New Dress!

So it only took a little less than a year, but I finally got a JOB at the Car and Dog Wash! The best part is how much money I will be making in tips! On a normal day the workers make about 100-150 dollars in tips. That is amazing. lol I will also be getting a workout from this new job which is also another plus. :) and  I will be working with one of my best friends! Even though she will probably not work on the same days since she has school on the days I will most likely be working. But the only thing I really care about, is that I HAVE A JOB! :D AND I start tomorrow :)

So now that I am almost making money I can't stop imagining things I can buy. But I keep reminding myself that it would be best to save most of it :) but I would also like to finally take a trip somewhere warm... hmmm I guess we will have to see what I end up doing with my money. haha

Other than getting a new job, not a whole lot of exciting things have happened since the last time I blogged. O ya. My parents espresso stand got broken into last Thursday night. And the bugler didn't even take anything. Just broke the window and left some blood and finger prints. haha and he also tried to take some bags of chocolate chai but dropped them in the snow on his way out. which I don't understand at all. But since he tried to take the bags of chocolate chai he is now being charged with burglary and intent to commit a crime, instead of just breaking and entering or whatever its called. lol what a loser.

I also finished the Hunger Games series and I was very disappointed in the ending. I'm having a hard time being mad at the author though because I absolutely loved all three books until the final 20 pages... It just seemed like she got bored with writing and summed everything up in a couple paragraphs. :( BUT, overall I loved the books. :) Now I'm looking for something new to read :) My sister and I and some of my sister's friends are thinking about starting a book club. I know. I'm a nerd :P

My best friend Jade comes home this weekend! :) and it's super bowl weekend so it should be a pretty good weekend! :)

ALSO!! I finally got my dress for White Rose! Here's what it looks like on me! I just need to find shoes, a tie to match for tanner and some jewlery to go along with it! :)

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger

Today I went to Synergy with Tyler for his late birthday lunch! I bought him a slice of chocolate cake only to find out that hes on a strict diet so he can't really eat my cake. :( haha its ok though because it was nice to catch up with Tyler :)

When I went to Safeway to buy his cake the cashier at the check out asked me if "it was a cake kind of day?" I spent all morning wondering what she meant by that.. like first of all, isn't every day a cake day?? haha and if not, what does a cake day look like?? I think it bothered me more than it should have but it confused me and I still don't know what she meant by that. lol

On a less happy note, Tanner is thinking about going into the ROTC program at WSU so he will have all his college paid for and more.. which is awesome except he would have to leave to another state for a whole month during summer and its already hard enough to see him when hes living only 2 and a half hours away... and the worst part... he has the possibility of being deployed to fight at some point in his life.. that's so terrible. i cant even imagine war.  I know he doesn't want to do that but to him it looks like his only option to pay for school.. I don't want to be the one to tell him not to go because I know how much school means to him and he needs the money and I'm trying not to be selfish in this whole thing.. I recommended that he stay in moses through summer and the fall semester so he can stay and make money from working so then he will have enough to pay for a couple more semesters so I know he is considering that as an option but thank goodness he is coming home this weekend to talk to his parents about everything. I really don't think I could handle him leaving for war or even boot camp. I just watched Dear John a week or two ago and I cried my eyes out. I don't want that to be me. haha so wish Tanner luck that he comes up with a better option than ROTC. :(

So a little recap on how I feel about the Bachelor so far...
COURTNEY NEEDS TO LEAVE. I can't stand how fake she is and her stupid baby voice is annoying!! So far I'm rooting for Kacey B. and Nikki. Except Kacey B. is getting a little too emotional too soon. hmmm... can't wait till next week!

To end this on a happy note, I started reading the third book in the Hunger Games series and I love it so far! I can hardly put the book down! so that's what I will be doing all tonight! :)

I feel like this song is fitting for how I feel today.

Boring Sunday

This is what my day has been like so far...

Last night I finally finished the second book of the Hunger Games! :) After I get ready I am headed to Hastings to get the third book and I am way too excited!

PATRIOTS ARE GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL! :D now we just have to see who wins the next game..

After the game I think I will go make cake pops at my sisters house even though I can't eat them :( haha

this is my song for today :) it makes me want to go back to Freaknight.

Have a good Sunday everyone!

New dress and Motivation to fit in my new dress!

Something exciting that happened to me today.... I bought my dress today for the Sigma Nu White Rose Formal in Canada!
Now I just need some heels and a tie for Tanner to match! :D I really want some glittery high heels that match but i think that color might be too hard to match...

On another note, I am very excited for my weight loss challenge! Its only been a few days but I already feel more healthy! I printed out some pictures and quotes for my wall and fridge for motivation! And I'm making sure that I look like this by the end of my eight week challenge:


this song has been stuck in my head all day so I thought I would share it since it's so awesome. :)

Two Thousand Twelve

So, I'm back! I decided to start blogging again (thanks to Jade :)) but i also decided that I don't need to make myself blog every day. So here's whats new:

2012 has motivated me to become the person I've always wanted to be. More successful in every aspect of my life. A few days ago I started an 8 week weight loss challenge with my family. Basically I get points for doing good things like drinking 64 oz a day and eating a certain amount of fruits and veggies. My goal is to lose 15 pounds by the end of the eight weeks and its definitely going to happen! :)

I've been working for my mom at the espresso stand which is nice because I like making money and I hate sitting at home by myself all day. haha but it gets a little ridiculous for me to waste gas driving all the way to Othello so I'm working on getting a different job in town.
I applied to Big Bend so next quarter I can get back into school and get back on the right track again.

What I've learned lately: I need to focus on smaller goals one at a time before I can start focusing so much on the future. My whole life I've always planned for the future and never for the present and I believe that is what has set me back a couple steps. I just need to start small to succeed and have the life I want. And I know now that nobody else is going to do it for me. Just me myself and I. :)

I've also made 2012 a year that I will have no regrets. I'm very focused and driven this year and I'm sad that it took me this long to realize what I need to do. I know I will make mistakes, but I'm determined to learn from them and continue on to make my life the life I want to live.

As for relationships, I am working on improving them. That includes everyone. Tanner, my best friends and my family. Life is too short to be anything but happy so I'm not going to waste the time I have :)

Also, I have become a pinterest addict so I think blogging is going to be a little more fun for me!
