23 is the new 185

Well, i Just have a few things to say.
So you know how Blake's friend asked if I was his Grandma?\ Well to top that off when my family and I went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner, there was this down syndrome fella that was a greeter. which is awesome, and he was talking Jana's ear off. when I got there someone told him that it was my Birthday and he said, "What, are you a 185 years old?"  wow. really? I guess 23 is the new 185! And I tried to give him a high five and he faked me out and rub his hand on the right of his head so smoothly.

then on Sunday when I was at Savannah and Kyle's house, his family asked me how old I was turning. so I told them I was 23. and then his dad said it only goes downhill from here. you might as well kill yourself now before it gets any worse. I've got  gun in my garage.

yikes. i'm old.

Oh And another thing. if you see me anytime soon I'd really really appreciate it if you didn't ask me the following questions: WHEN are you getting married? and my personal favorite.WHEN are you going on your mission?

I was asked at least 5 times at my friends farewell. and everyone from my home ward came up to me asking When I was going on My mission. The answer is NO!

I promise I'm not against missions and I think it's great when people go. I really just don't have any desire to go. really.
When I was at The Fordham's on Sunday I was telling them that if one more person asks me WHEN I was going on my Mission I was gonna freak out. So of course not even like ten minutes later I get a text that was a a birthday poem and at the end it you should go on one too. then it said (on a mission)
I was ticked. and They LOVED it! and then a while later Kathy, My Grandpa's wife called and wished me a happy birthday. and I told her I went to Dayna's farewell. And yep, you guessed it! She asked me if I was going on a mission too! Don't get me wrong. I care about these people that asked me. but it gets a little annoying. actually A LOT annoying. I can't stand it!

So no mission. Sorry to disappoint everyone.
I may not be married nor serving a mission. but that doesn't mean that what I am doing is where I should be. I like my life. and what is mostly going on in it. But really I wouldn't change anything.
so yeah. that's all.

And PLEASE STOP!!! It is really appreciated!

Post Birthday.

So lets be real my birthday week wasn't that great. No one could do anything because of finals. Which is really lame. And so the very few things I did were very fun. Who knew that having my birthday on the day it is would screw me over in my College years. Thanks Mom and Dad! jk

Highlights of my Birthday and Week:

1. Porters Place with Savannah and Kyle. On Monday, Day two of Birthday Week. We ate at our Favorite Place in Lehi. Its so good. everyone should try it. And we then went to Big Lots and got some stuff. and it really was a lot of fun! I was Drunk I swear because everything Kyle said was super funny to me. and I don't even know why. Half the time he would just say weird things or just make a noise and I laughed for hours.
2. Every night Lisa would Play Wackee Six with me. and that meant a lot. sometimes Jessica would Join in.
3. Tuesday: Day 3 I was supposed to have a Cereal Dinner party. but of course no one could come. And you were supposed to eat Cereal all day. But I went to Lunch with my dear friends Hailey and Dayna to Cafe Rio.  and they paid for me! It was awesome and so much fun. Then Dayna and I went to the mall because she needed Pants for her P-days on her Mission and she leaves on Wednesday. We went to this store called Utah Unique. it's a neat store. and we saw these rocking chairs that were for your cabins. I decided to try it out. and I fell in love. I couldn't speak. and after about 2 minutes of not yapping Dayna looks over and saw that I was sitting there so she decided to try it out too. She couldn't believe how her butt felt so good in that chair. and it was wooden with just a little cushion in it. and her chair was even better with a recliner. Then we went to see her friend Cailie.She is pretty fantastic and always has a story to tell. and you know how much I love stories. And Hung out with Celeste T for a little while. Hey Celeste- Party in the house! :)

4. Thursday Day 5: I spent it making fliers for my moms work. and got $100 from it. and Then I went to Celeste T's House and made a Chocolate Pie because I never got pie for Thanksgiving. My Uncle only bought Pumpkin Pie. and we watched Sleepless in Seattle. it was so much fun! I never knew that movie was so funny either. and the pie was delicious.

5. Friday Day 6: Erin P and I wrote Fan letters to Zac Efron. it was super fun. And I tried to make mine as creepy as Possible. And when I was done I read it. and was super creeped out. I think i succeeded. I am not even going to send it. I felt like a freaking creeper. Erins was pretty Creepy but definitely not as creepy as mine. I don't think it could get anymore creepier than that. Then My cousin Jessa took me Comedysportz! One of my favorite places EVER!! We went to Taco Bell for Dinner then to Spoon Me for Desert! My most favorite places EVER! My favorite person at comedysportz was there. He's usually always there! and I want to marry him. he is funny and good looking. and I got a picture with all of them! it was super fun. oh and that man is NOT married! so that is good. I have high hopes for us! :)

6. Saturday did a whole lot of nothing. in the evening I went to Erica's and Blake had his friends over because Erica was babysitting. And I was sitting by Erica and Blake's Friend said "Blake, is that your Grandma?" sooooooooooooo apparently I'm a grandma to 4 year old. this was new to me. Sometimes people do think that I am Blake's mom. but NEVER his grandma. I definitely was not expecting that. But it was Awesome! I am 23 and a grandma! that Night I wanted to have a sleepover with the roommates. but they refused to. it wasn't very nice.

7. Sunday, on my birthday Erin comes home about 1 or 2 and wanted Chinese food for some reason. So we went to Wal mart and took it home and she made some. and she bought me a Sobe. it was so good. she also gave me a really cool bracelet from Africa. and so we made her food and watched the office. Oh also my new roommate Sabrina made me Better than Sex cake. and. it. was. AWESOME! and had some of that while we watched the office and they would have a sleepover with me. and took a bunch of pictures and it was fun. then fell asleep about 3 or 4 in the am and woke up at 8 to my roommates getting ready for church.  At one I went to Dayna's farewell. It was really good. Sister Taylor also spoke and she was awesome. Sat by Sister Hall and Hailey and her parents. it was so good to see all my favorite people that I grew up by. and went to her lunch after. After that went to Savannah's and ate dinner with the Fordhams. we had hamburgers and fries. It's Conner's Birthday Wednesday so they were celebrating that. When they found out it was my birthday they decided that we both needed a cake. but we didn't want cake. we wanted brownies. and they sang happy birthday to us and we blew out a match. oh and at Dayna's party they sang happy birthday to me and her sister, Erika. Hers is tomorrow. When I went home Jessica gave me 5 coupons for Icee's. I was super happy about it.  Savannah gave me a dollar when I left to get an Icee. and I came home to that. I was one lucky gal! And Lindsay called me! it was good to talk to her too! :)

Oh and one of my most favorite things of that day was getting a call from Mike and Sarah!!!! I loved it soooo much! I'm so happy that they called all the way from Germany! That totally made my day! I was so good to hear their voices. and they are a sending me german gummies. which are MY VERY FAVORITE!! :) I love them!
Another personal favorite. which is not really that favorite. ..........my brothers forgot my birthday!! :(
sorry I left my camera at home so I couldn't put any photos on.
also On my birthday list was to go skinny dipping, drink Bacardi like it's my birthday, and to go see lights. and I never did any of that! I'm kinda ticked about it.

other than that. it was a decent week.

Tonight I'm going to Texas Roadhouse with the family. and Angie and I are having a sleepover I believe on Tuesday night! but not too set on that. it might change. I hope we do though! I love her.

8 Crazy Nights!!

Haven't even opened it and I was drunk!
Really just a great time! :)

So it's my birthday week! It is going to be AMAZING! I have every day planned for the next week. Sunday-Sunday! :) Last Year was super fun and I can't Wait for this year to make many many more memories. I will try and post everything that we do and hopefully be able to take a picture of each day also.

Today that has been:
1. Eat lunch with roommates. and other people in the apartment complex. made by Lisa! delectable.
2. Have a Wackee six competion.
3. Watch the office.
4 Drink Sparkling Cider and toast to me.
5. Take pictures of everyone there.

Now, everyday consists of The Office and Wackee Six. But today, Sunday, it's a competion.
We were all shocked about craplocker doing this ON PURPOSE!!
The sparkling Cider and Pictures are going to be post-poned  until midnight because Erin P.  gets home from work around that time.  I can't wait to see what this year will bring for us. but really. Let's be real. doing random things that are free are WAY better than actually doing something for that costs money. now i know this isn't spur of the moment stuff. but it's really random things we will do each day! I'm super excited!

These Photos are my favorites from last year. this was on the first night. definitely a fantastic time we had as you can tell.

Kelsey, Lisa, Erin and Jessica
For the last week or so I have been thinking about how great all of my roommates are. considering for like 2 months i pretty much want to kill them. but don't worry we worked it out. and we are having a ton of fun.
I forgot how much I truly Love each and everyone of them. And how the are a big part of my life. Each one plays a different role in how much i really need them.

We got Lisa, who really is a caring person that will do anything for you. i mean anything.  and you pretty much can tell her anything and she knows exactly what you mean.  Love her.

Kelsey: she is the 2nd comic relief in this apartment (besides me of course) and has the memory of an elephant and can quote pretty much an entire episode of the office and a movie. by watching it once or twice.

Erin: She is also a caring person and will listen to any stupid thing I have to say and will just listen. And is a ton of fun. and pretty much laughs at anything I say. and you can't go wrong with a gal like that. I tend to think I have funny things to say.

Last but not least we have the baby, Jessica: she just turned 18 a week ago. and so yes she is the baby of the apartment. but probably the most mature out of the rest of us. sadly. but she is still a ton of fun. and threatens to smother me with a pillow sometimes. which is actually quite funny considering she is pretty tame and quite person. and spent the first 2 months of living in our apartment in her room. and that was on the of the first things she said to me.

so pretty much my roommates are way better than anyone else has ever had. I don't know what i would do without them. I realized a week ago that these gals are like my family. and I truly appreciate each and everyone in my life. We care a great deal about each other and would do anything for each other.  But we have the BEST time. and I really don't know what I would do with out these gals of mine.

Saturday we are getting a new roommate. in my room, unfortunately. and we are NOT excited about this. But I do hope she brings some fun with her-where ever she is from. All we know about her is that her name is Sabrina, she served a mission in Indiana. and she's had roommates before. and that means she is either my age or older.....hahah poor baby Jessica. :)

about the picture. I am not in it obviously. I wasn't there. and we don't have a family picture yet. which we definitely work on this.

PS Celeste T and Lisday K you were the Greatest roommates also. so don't think that i don't like you or felt the same way! :)

So today was my brother Jared's birthday! He's freaking 16 years old! This can't be real! He's still a 5 year old to me. But he's growing up so fast. He's got a little girlfriend and that's even weirder to me. He's an amazing young man! And a great example to me and a great uncle to my neices and nephews. I'm proud of this kid!
For his birthday we went to tucanos! Which is a pretty fantastic place to eat except that you get full pretty fast! But I love meat. We go there for his birthday lately and I'm so glad!

Tonight my roommate Erin serenaded me. And it was fantastic. It cheered me up a little. I love music! I can't even begin to extrapolate how much I love music and her.then one of our neighbors came over and he is is pretty funny and he smells pretty good. And right now at 3 in the morning I can't sleep and I'm watching wizards of waverly place. Don't judge. And I can still smell him. It's kind of intoxicatng. And I just watched an infomercial and it made all this delicious food. And I'm now starving at 3 in the am. And I really regret watching that cause i really want to eat something! Frick.

But the day I'm actually writing on is my families sealing anniversary. 14 years ago today my family and I went to the mount timpanogos temple! We were one if the first families to be sealed since it was brand new. I love the temple so much! It's probably my most favorite place in this world! As much as my family can drive me crazy I'm glad we got sealed this day 14 years to be with each other forever.

Monday, November 8, 2010


So I've had a few people tell me I need to write again. So yeah. Here's me trying. I haven't had much to report on. Cause let's face it. I'm not doing so good right now. And so I haven't done anything cool. It's been a hard hard year! And i seriously hope this next year will be a million times better. I don't know why but being 22 has been the worst thing EVER. And i really just want to stay in my bed all day and sleep! Well. There you have it!

On a positive note, one of my best friends, Nick Strong, is coming HOME Thursday! I can not wait! he's been serving his mission in Nicaragua. He's THE best! He's my courtesy Indian friend! Its just an inside joke. I'm not really racist. I can't wait. It is going to be so much fun to have him back. I've really missed having him around.

So things that I have been up to:

1. Nothing.
2. Thinking about going back to school to bEcome a dental hygienist. All I know is that this is going to be one of the most hardest things I have ever done. But it's not official yet. We'll see what happens.
3. At my internship they keep changing my hours. I am not sure what they are yet. I haven't been in 2 weeks. It's really getting annoying.
I can tell you about my dreams I've been having lately. They are fun!
A few weeks ago I had a dream that I dated Nate, Tyson,Bryson, And Jeff. Which is not uncommon in my dreams where I date multiple people. They were some boys from my neighborhood growing up.

I also keep having dreams about famous people. I had a dream I met Will Ferrell. He was apparently my yoga teacher in jr. High. And apparently in his 'clause' I am not sure why it was called that. But in his clause it said we couldn't get his autograph or take pictures with him. Even though I'm a huge fan of him. I was ticked. And always with my luck of dreaming about famous people that always happens. I once met Miley Cyrus and she refused to give me an autograph and picture. Why do famous people hate me in my dreams?

Another time I was on the office. And I dated Jim and Dwigt. Remember this is not uncommon. And my Parents LOVED them. Dwigt was a normal human. And Jim and I were about to get married. Then I unfortunately woke up.

Then my most recent crazy one that I was a detective. I had to solve a murder. Which apparently I dreamt about it in my dream earlier. So I already knew what I needed to do to solve it and get to the next clue. And by the time I got to know who it was, I was on my way to Darby, Montana. Which I'm not even sure if that place is real. I was with the murderer-my friends boyfriend- Josh. And we stopped at this town to get lunch and I saw him trying to cheat on my dear friend Rachel. And at that point he found out that I knew that he had killed someone. And I was going to tell rachel everything and then it was the end of the world. And so we had to run to this church. And Josh was mad at me for telling Rachel. And he announced to everyone that I was FLDS. And him and Rachel booed me from their group to die and they made me go die with the polygamists!

I really like that last one. :)

So yeah. Uuhh so Blake is starting to repeat everything you say. A little while ago he told his mom "when kids make a mess, it's called what the hell!". His exact words. :). I bet you thought I taught him that. But really it wasn't me. It was jana. Cause when him and my nieces make a mess she comes down stairs and says that. And when you say anything like that he say "we don't say what the hell" it is in quotation marks. It's okay.

So there you have it! That's all I gotta say!

You know when you are at the Evan's When...

The Amazing Family.
So you know my Best Friend Savannah. Well I am at her Parents house right now with Eliza Eating this rice krispie treat...i guess if you could call it that. it had cornflakes and honey nut cheerios and and get this....sunflower seeds. with rice krispies. i guess you could call it a treat. As i was chewing away I was thinking to Eliza " Hey Eliza you know when you are at the Evans when..." and we came up with a good list of things and decided to post these amazing things so you can get to know them like I do....so
You know when you are at the Evan's When...
1. You come to eat spaghetti and there are all the noodles you can think of because they were just trying to get rid of the noodles they had before.
2. You eat a hamburger with just one side of the bun.
3. You have homemade pizza (which is delicious by the way) and you put hot dogs on this.
4. You make a whole bunch of cookies or cinnamon rolls and you see a whole bunch of partial cookies or cinnamon rolls  because they don't know how to just finish one before they start on the next. It's a team effort here.
5. The phone rings.....and rings and rings. No one really notices until you say...uhhh you should probably get that. or you answer it yourself.
6. The Kids come in for like 5 minutes and Mom's already suggesting that they need to go "explore" "go to the mountains on an adventure" or  jump on the tramp.
7. When Mom says Family prayer we are there for at least 57 minutes. praying for everyone in the room. and the entire world. :) and you think your knees might give out. and you end up with everyone sitting instead of kneeling.  Bless her heart.
8. Gathering EVERYONE for Family prayer takes another 57 Minutes.
9. the cereal is always nuts and cheerios or shredded wheat all mixed together in one new creation! (thanks Camille)
10. Dad acts just like the kids. or do the kids act just like him?
11. The girls actually fight over who is Changing Rocky's Diaper or putting him in his car seat. BECAUSE THEY WANT TO!
and last but not least. and this was a new one to me..
12. you make Pizza with hamburger buns. and yes they put hot dogs on them.

Really it wasn't bad. and everything they make is really really good! I don't know how they do it. They really are amazing. It may seem I'm making fun of them. but I'm really not. these are the things that I love most about their family. I will probably think of funnier things. but that is all I got for now.

thanks guys. you're the best!

Saturday Night

Champion Sleeper

According to Celeste I am a Champion Sleeper in her eyes. i like that. It's true I am. I once slept for 21 hours. I woke up for 3 hours to go to the mall with the family at 2. and then we were there for 2-3 hours. I was so tired I went back to bed. so yes I am a Champion sleeper. I think i deserve an award. Soooo.. Celeste work on that.

i'm working on my paragraphs. are you proud Celeste? but I didn't Major in English...so don't expect anything more after this.

So you know how a few posts back when I said I was working on Jaxon to like me? well I figured it out. I decided to take him on a special date on Saturday. and he didn't seem too excited to go. until I was walking out the door then he ran out with me. We went to the gas station and he got to pick out his treat. He immediately ran for a Coffee pot. and was really wanting that. My Dad thought that it was the cup he was interested in. but he didn't even seem them until later. he wanted the coffee so bad....that kid doesn't NOT need anymore energy than he already has. It was fun. and I loved our special date. The next day when I went to the Parents house he was there and he ran up to me on the couch and gave me a huge hug and rubbed his face in my chest....freak. He's totally a man. He was really excited to see me. and I loved it!! :) sooo Jaxon likes me now.

After that Jessa my Cousin made dinner for me and her Mom. IT WAS AMAZING!! I love her. She is an awesome cousin. She's also the best friend a gal could ask for. She is so fun and so sweet. and I think the best part about it is that she is so amazing in so many ways and doesn't even know it. she's a very humble gal. i like that. Her mom told really funny stories. I like her also. Jessa Made some AMAZING Chicken.Corn. Rice a toni. (yes we call it rice a toni) and grilled Pineapple. I don't like pineapple but I ate it anyway. and oh my goodness.... I LOVED IT!!! and we played Bowling and golf on the wii and Mario kart. by the time it was 11 i was so tired i didn't even know what was going on and we played for another hour. it was a really fun night.

Monday I went to the Zoo with my mom Jana and Brad and Erica and Devin and all the kids. it was soooo much fun! I loved the way their eyes lit up when they saw a new animal. especially Blake and Carson. I never have seen Carson so happy in my life. I remembered that i don't like animals very much but it was worth it see all the kids have fun. After that I went to Trafalga to Mini golf with Aubrey, Savannah and Kyle.  It was so fun. and at the end if you get a hole in one in the toilet you get a free round of mini golf. and of course I get the hole in one. can't wait to go again.

I have some amazing friends and am glad they are in my life. the only problem is the majority is that they are married. soooo that just means i need to find my Zac Efron soon so we can hang out more. I am starting to go to my ward that I am supposed to go....so I better be finding my Zac sooner than later. I'm nervous for a new ward. but excited for the new adventrures. cause If you really knew me you'd know that I really hate change.

So I went to my internship today and at the end of the day they told me that the Dentist on mondays doesn't want an intern while he's there so the tuesday one doesn't care. so my 6 hours a week just turned into 3. so hopefully I can find a new one soon cause I only have 100 hours left of this and I can't wait to do this for a living.

Jessa also showed me a video that is really funny. what happened isn't funny at all but the way the guy reacted to it makes it hilarious.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMtZfW2z9dw

And there you go!

My Beautiful Mother.

So my mom brought it to my attention that I never have written about her. And now that I realize this it makes me feel bad. She doesn't think that I love her and that I use her. this is simply not the case. I do love her. We've had our differences. But she is still an amazing person. She's willing to help me in need. and i would do anything for her if she were to ask me. She has a strong testimony of the church which I do look up to. I loved the determination she had to lose all that weight. The way she treats my nieces and nephews. and they love her so much. and wants to make sure we are all taken care of. I love that Every year on my birthday she always tells me the story of when I was born and it really means a lot to me. and During Christmas time I had a feeling I needed to write her a love note. and that same day she had a feeling to write me one. My mom does really well in her job and is a really respected woman in what she does. and that is something I also look up to as well.  Because I also want that in my profession too.She has a lot of qualities of her mom. and it's awesome. Mom I'm sorry you felt that way. thanks for everything you do for me! love you mom!

New nephew.

It's only going to get better!
So I am getting a new nephew.  I seriously can't Wait. and can't wait for Erica to find out what she is having. My nieces and nephews are seriously the BEST things to ever have happened to me. I can't wait to know what he's like. Every time I get a new one I really think they are going to to be just like the other one. but seriously have 5 different nieces and nephews. with 5 different personalities. Recently it was Addy's Birthday. What I love most about her and can get annoying sometimes is that she is always curious of what is going and when we are going to get it. I think it's because she's worried that it won't happen because she asks like a million times. She Just turned 7! I'm getting old or something. She was the first to come. I remember the day I found out I was going to be an aunt. I was longing for this day since the Day Jana And Brad got married. I was 16 on Christmas Morning. In Montana at my Grandparents house like we've done every  year. and I can't remember if It was My dad or one of my grandparents that Got a card that sad either saying something about being a grandpa or Great  Grandparent. I loved hearing the news. I was so excited and filled with Joy. and Maybe my eyes teared up a little. get over it. then waiting until Sunday morning August 17th 2003 We got a call at like 3 or 4 in the morning. and I couldn't sleep. and Yet again I was so happy I cried. She is the BEST! She means so so much to me. She got the amazing privilege to be the first great grandchild and meeting my amazing Grandmother. and Lucky enough to named after her. She is upbeat. always fun. pretty sure has OCD just like her mom. and to me she is perfect in every way! I love the way her eyes light up when she gets a gift. We go on special dates a lot. and sleepovers. I try really hard to let them know how much I love them and they are super important to me. Them just telling me I'm their favorite Aunt is just a perk. for her birthday I got her a really cute shirt from Target that I just knew she would love. I couldn't see her on her Birthday until way late and I called and My roommate Lisa and I called and Sang her happy birthday. so I brought her shirt to her about 10 that night. I brought it to her and she immediately LOVED it! I was so happy that she didn't freak out like when I got her cookies n' cream candy bar for Christmas as part as her present. She wanted to put it on and said this would look really cute with my leggings. which is why I got it so she could wear it with it. and she was so excited she wanted to show mom.  we were walking to the stairs and all of a sudden she stops looks at me and gives me a giant hug. that made  it all worth while. She's amazing. Then came Blake. I remember that day clearly as well. I knew that Devin and Erica were trying and a second later basically she was pregnant. and was standing in the kitchen of the home I grew up in. and the day I knew it was a Boy I was giddy. didn't know what it was like to have a nephew. just brothers. and I was at School upstairs by Savannah's or Aubrey's Locker. best feeling ever. He is a rare one and was born on His due date. May 23rd 2006. I remember that time especially because I was working on Packets to graduate. and told myself I couldn't go see Blake until I finished my packets.......I really couldn't wait. so i did end up going to see him that night because I couldn't wait. If I really were to keep my word on that I wouldn't have been able to see him until a year later. He's amazing in every way. He takes all the good qualities his parents have. and seriously is the perfect nephew. He's funny. He's handsome. he knows he's Handsome because his mom told him so. He always tells me I'm his favorite aunt and has a way to make all the girls of his life feel really important. at age 4 he's a special guy and the gal he marries is gonna be one lucky gal. He says that girls are Hott and women are beautiful. his eyes light up at anything. seeing his family. a dog house plate and even the littlest present you'd get him. and a present that anyone else gets. He has a little OCD where he has to line up multiples of things. so he's really easy to buy for. and easily please. Then we have the Beautiful Chelsea Beth. I found out she was coming by Addy wearing a shirt from Dora the Explorer that said I'm going to be a big sister.. and it took me a minute to realize what her said. and I didn't know what to do with myself. and was extra excited because I already knew Blake was coming. This gal is AMAZING! she's so sweet and so dang crazy in every way you can think of. she says the funniest things in the world. and is filled with attitude. She's fun at sleepovers. there are Many funny things she has said. My personal favorite is when she told me that if I cleaned my car and painted it purple it would look good. She s always wanting to listen to Jesus wants me for a Sunbeam. always. I will never forget the day when we were driving back from a special date and looking in the rear view mirror and singing the song. it definitely helped my testimony grow. Then we Got Jaxon. He is a handful and of course handsome. I remember when I found out Erica was Pregnant. and I loved it.  and I've worked really hard to make Jaxon like me. he's coming around but I'm still working on him. he's so full of life and totally opposite from Blake. He is full of life and you have to really follow him around so he's not getting into too much trouble. But he can be sweet sometimes. none the less I truly love him. I was even more excited when it was like 2 days later I found out Carson was coming too. They are 8 days apart and seriously act like they should be twins. Carson is so sweet also. I did have to work on him. but I know I won his love after taking him to the gas station to get a drink. He loves his Soda. and every time i go over then he will be excited to see me but won't act like he wants to be around til i leave. and then he freaks out and wants me to take him with me. he wants his soda. the man knows what he wants and he knows how to get it. from his sucker aunt. that loves taking him. Now I don't know if it's the soda or if he feels as is he lives in prison...not likely but that is what it's like. I can't wait for the new nephew. and whatever Erica may have. I only hope to be able to have a great relationship with them for a long time because they mean so much to me. and know that i love them more than they even know. Just as I don't think that it could possibly get any better I get 2 new ones to add in the mix and can't wait to see what they look like what they act like and who they will be. I wouldn't trade them in for anything.

If you really knew me.....

Since i'm a sucker for reality shows, and I have recently watched "if you really knew me"  I decided to do a blog about it. but nothing too deep. but just some fun things people don't know about me. So Here it goes.. If you really knew me you'd know that I love watching movies and Desperate Housewives with the roommates every morning. you'd also know that when we see a dumb reality show that we have to say "let's vow not to watch that" so that we don't get sucked into something we can't stop watching. also that my powerade addiction is worse than anyone knows. you'd know that my whole life i never found anyone that ever supported me or were my "cheerleaders" besides Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ until I met Brother and Sister Dahlin. 6 people I try to emulate everyday and hope to be like someday...besides from being me, are Jesus Christ, Grandma Valene, Sister Hall, Sister Dahlin  Aunt Karen and My Dad. If you really really knew me you'd know that I adore my Dad. and fear for the day he dies because I don't know what i'd do without him. If you really knew me I don't get jealous of people getting married because I want to live my life first and get all my fun out now. And that the only thing I get jealous of is hearing when people go through the temple for the first time because I want that more than anything right now. If you really knew me you'd know that I get really excited about the little things. Sometimes overly excited. you'd know that I love surprising people. writing love notes. Serving people and talking to the elderly. if you really knew me I hate knowing about surprises. but loves being surprised. I love knowing people thought about me. If you really really knew me you'd know that I secretly love (and I hate admiting it) Linkin Park, Jonas Brothers Miley Cyrus and Hannah Montana. If you really knew me you'd know that I don't care what I do with people as long as we're together...that is all that matters to me and it wasn't a waste of my time. If you really knew me I hate people born in a cave. and that you'd really actually not know I didn't like you because I hate not liking someone. and do my best to find reasons to like you. If you really knew me you'd know i'm actually really interested in Family History. if you really knew me that when I was a teachers aid I secretly loved being called Miss Ross. If you really really really knew me you'd know that my nieces and nephews are what keep me alive. If you really knew me you'd know that kind  of testimony I have. And that I actually am grateful for my trials because they make me who I am. If you really knew me you'd know my weakness is not chocolate. it's German gummy bears. and eating my roommates baked goods. If you really knew me you'd know i've only had 3 teachers in my life that have made an impact in my life. Mrs. Donkersgood My 9th grade math teacher. she actually made sure that I understood it. Ms. Burns that actually took the time to make sure I was doing what I was supposed to. and that I was happy. and Sharilyn. My Dental Assisting Teacher that came to  teach our class half way through the class. and took over and even though she over extrapolates she wants to make sure you are knowing what is going on and will do anything to make sure you do your best to succeed. If you really knew me you'd know that no matter what subject. just the thought of homework gives me anxiety. If you really knew me you'd know that I love to gossip. if you really knew me you'd know that I love the shows Law and Order SVU Criminal minds NCIS CSI Miami 16 and pregnant teen mom internvention Hannah Montana Degrassi and the Hills. you'd also know that my favorite words are fella, gal, cripes, extrapolate and beer. if you really knew me you'd know that I someone how got out of high school without doing the Dirty, being a drug addict or an alcoholic because of the friends I had. and that I owe Hailey Roper, Sarah Taylor, Savannah Fordham and Dayna Black for helping me get to where I am today. you'd also know that Sarah s the only person that can tell me the way it is and I never get offend and  if she tells me I need to change something I do whatever it takes to change it. somehow she knows how to say it the way I need to hear it. If you really knew me you'd know that I look up to and are very close to my Young womens Leaders Becky Dunn, Kelly Hall, Kim Pence Cricket Veeker Sister Degrey  Sister Taylor and Sister Remy. If you really knew me you'd know that I treat my friends with to upmost respect because that is the way that i'd like to be treated. you'd also know that I love Heart to Hearts more than anything. And hugs mean more to me than words. If you really knew me you'd know when I talk to you I have to touch you in some way because I feel you are actually listening to me and that we connect better not because I am in love with you. If you really knew me I like to put a smile on everybody's face. and that I love Tramp talks and otter pop talks. not anything dirty. it's actually on a tramp and we're actually eating otterpops. if you really knew me that Tramp talks are one of my favorite past times. if you really knew me as weird as it may be because of my profession is that I really don't enjoy brushing my own teeth because I gag. ( I still do sickos) If you really knew me you'd know that my tonsils were so big before they were removed I referred to them as my ball sac. sick I know. but that is what they looked like. also that I snored worse than a man and had sleep apnea. but now I don't. If you really knew me you'd know between the ages for 12-14 I had chronic hives. and stll have phantom itches. if you really knew me you'd know I'd like dirty jokes. especially when you can say that's what she said.

If you really knew me that nothing ever embarrases me except when people give me a compliment. So I just say "I know" instead of thank you. if you really knew me you'd know that I hate fake appologies. If you really knew me you'd know that I was the only girl on my 2nd grade basketball team. and loved it. and that I  stopped playing in 8th grade and really regret it. if you really knew me you'd know I love vacations and days off. and that I play Guitar hero to much. and that I love boating. and just doing really about anything. besides looking at snakes mice rats or things like that. also that I think it's funny to see someone trip no matter what age they are. and if you really knew me ... the things I didn't like about my roommate celeste are somethings that I actually have grown to love about her. and that before Lindsay Kindlespire moved in with me she was just someone I've known forever. but while living with her I grew to appreciate her more and am sad she isn't living here anymore. and I adore her more than I ever thought I would. she means the world to me. if you really knew me you'd know that I love Amanda Bynes and Zooey Deschanel Zac Efron and Channing Tatum. and that once the person born in a cave left  I learned to love Lisa Kelsey and Celeste  more. If you really knew me you'd know that Angus thongs and perfect snogging is seriously the best movie ever. along with Baby Mama. she's the Man and mean girls. if you really really really really knew me you'd know that this year has been one of the hardest of my life. but at the same time most rewarding at the same time.
 and also I still love playing games even if I lose at them. and I just like to pretend to be competitive to make it so much funner.

if you really knew me I really made a blog so I can say cheesy Blogging lines.

Not even soon. But hopeflly.

These are the reasons why I am going to Germany!!
there are two things I've been thinking about today. a Vacation and My wedding plans. I know it's weird but I feel like i already have it planned out. it's weird. Probably because everyone is getting married this next week.No I haven't found my Zac Efron yet. but he will  come soon enough. I already know that i will have this down syndrome gal help plan my wedding. she works at Winnsong Theatre. I met her there when going to see the best toy story ever. and talked to her about working there. she told me that it wasn't her dream job. so i proceeded to ask her what is her dream job. I love talking to people with down syndrome. they are probably my favorite people in this world. anyhow she told me that her dream job is to be a wedding planner. And think it's a great idea. I would definitely let her help in assisting in it. and i know what songs i want and I will be having Spoon me, Cafe Rio cater and have rolls from  Texas Roadhouse. Then i also came up with the idea of a powerade fountain. I LOVE POWERADE! I know it's all random. but those are some of my ideas that i had and wrote them down. and you can't forget the amazing cheesecake and eclairs from BYU catering. So I've pretty much got it planned......not really i know there is a lot more to it than that. but that was the list i was making.
As for my Vacation. I love traveling. I haven't been on a vaca since last may of '09 to California. It was so much fun. I've been to Montana. But I don't really count that as a vacation because I go there usually twice a year. And last time i went was like 3 days after my tonsil surgery. and it was hell. I normally go on 1-2 vacations a year. And to go over a year without one is stressin me out. so ..... I've planned a trip to get my really excited for. Next Year I'm going to EUROPE!!!!!! I know what your thinkin because i've heard it all. "you're retarded" I hear that a lot. but the next one is how are you going if you don't even have a job. They act like i'll never ever in my life have a job ever again. But it's gonna be soooo AWESOME!! I'm starting in Germany. Germany has been one of my favorite countries since I can remember. One of my best friends, Sarah Taylor and her Husband Mike are moving there. Mike got a scholarship I guess and they are going to live there for a year and a half. I will miss them so much. They really have been so good to me. and truly have been blessed to have them in my life. So i will go there and See them for a few days. See our family friend Sarah that lives in Bonn...hopefully. Go to Italy at least one day. Because I love pasta so much. my roommates can confirm this. Then a day in France. Hopefully Sarah will take me to see her Family that lives there. I'm Pretty close with her family. and her Granny. She is from France and I hope to be able to meet them....even if we don't speak the same language. I also want to go to Scotland and England. That is where My Heritage is from. and I hope to  maybe meet some of my family I didn't even know I had. and i would like to end it with Holland. I know what you are thinking. what a random assortment of countries to see.....well those are ones that would mean the most to me. I don't ever really make sense a lot. so this is just Normal. Back to why I want to go to Holland. Well My Aunt Theresa and Uncle Warren got a divorce back in December and she moved out to Holland. she's been my aunt my whole life. and still is even if she isn't married to my uncle anymore. and I really want to see her! I miss her so much! so that is my plan. i can't even wait.

Story of the Real World

See why I love them so much?
So this is my first blog ever. I'm probably just going to use this as my journal because I doubt anyone will read this. But here is goes. I'll start by introducing myself. My Name is Laura. only about 4 or 5 people call me Lars. Thanks to my dear Friend Erica Pitts for starting that. The story starts with... about a year or more ago i went up to a good friend of mine house in West Jordan. Angie Pitts yes she is Erica's older sister. So that great night...we watched this really awkward but freaking hilarious show called Lars and the Real Girl. WE LOVED IT!! and from that night on they called me Lars. Then Last year I moved out. and before that I wanted to start my own reality show like The Hills. but put a little The Office twist into it. and I called it Lars and the Real World. Thanks again to Erica Pitts for that AWESOME idea. since then we have yet to film anything and turn it into MTV VH1 or even KBYU (since we're mormon and all). and now just them and my roommates Kelsey Johnson and Celeste Tholen...soon to be Rosenlof in about 9 days. and soon to be roommate Erin Price. that's it. and ... I LOVE IT! so that is the background of why my blog is called Lars and the Real World.  Some things to know about me...music. i love music more than you can imagine. I'm one of those people that doesn't really enjoy the radio. I love band that no one has ever heard of. They are the best bands to me. so i hope they don't become too famous anytime soon. my number one favorite is Bishop Allen. i fulfilled one of my "dreams" i guess you could say and went to their concert in March of  '09. best thing to ever happen to me. and Miniature Tigers are probably my 2nd favorite. they opened for Bishop Allen. and when we went to the concert i was all about hatin on them because most everyone that went was there for The Miniature Tigers. But once they opened their mouths.... I LOVED them. and was glad they were the band opening for them. and i could list some amazing bands. and talk about them. but i won't bore you! I just finished my last test for Dental Assisting. after 4 years it took me to go back to school i finally made the decision to go to Dental Assisting school. something i've wanted to do since i was 15. Six years later....I'm finally done. now all i have to do is finish the 127 of 300 hours i have left and i will have my Certificate from the School and the State!! I know I made the right decision. but it was hard getting there. but I'm so grateful i did it!! I learned so much and met some really awesome people. although i was 4 years older than most everyone else. it was still fun. I love my friends and my family. and would do just about anything for them! I have 3 Nephews and 2 Nieces. and 2 more of it's on the way. They are the Best things to ever have happened to me. I love going on special dates. and Having sleepovers with them. I have awesome older sisters Jana Bishop and Erica Goulding that are they ones that are having all the kids...and great younger brothers. Britt and Jared Ross. Britt and i fight a lot. but i know that comes with being the next siblings in line. but hope that one day we won't fight any longer. He's good to me when he fixes my cars. but that is about it! :)  Jared and I love the Same music. and he is such a good brother. Lately he's been showing me the new music. not me showing him all the music. he's almost 16 and is growing up wwwwwwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too fast. but he's really good at being good at everything. Son, Brother, Uncle and friend. and I have great parents who really love me and help me out so much. I love them. Needless to say I have an Amazing family. with really great Grandparents Aunts and Uncles and Cousins to help out. and some really Great friends. I've learned lately who my real friends are. and as hard as it was at first.... those real friends are the ones really worth hanging on to. so i thank those few friends. sooooooooooo that's basically my life. i don't have a job anymore. so i just intern at a pedicatric office that i LOVE so much!!! and that is about it. but not having a job was one of the BEST things really to ever have happened to me. I don't have to work in Hell ANYMORE!!!!!! woooooooooooo so pretty much everything is the best thing that has ever happened to me. so sue me.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LpmrZbTu1o
