texts, textes, textses

when we don't know what the plural form of a word is
we make it up.
alls i've got to say... is whoever decided the plural form of 'text' (multiple text messages) is
was wrong.
why is it that when this form of 'texts' refers to phone texts instead of actual text (ex. in a book) people think the plural form is different?

when people say what should just be 'texts'
i die laughing at how ridiculous they sound
sounds like 'Texas', no?

Now back to all my texts.
both academic and cyber.

Queen of Bouquets

Last year I caught

not one
(photo by Nicole)
not two
but THREE bouquets
(this bouquet split into three.. the last 3 single girls of the legit 6 caught all three of them. ironic, eh?)

i'm sooo excited! (snl)

i watched the whole show last night.
so worth the $12
(pic from

this is sooo funny

my cousins were on a road trip (probably on their way to Utah to visit)
they were playing games to make the time pass quicker
one person chose an object. In this case my aunt chose the


and gave the kids clues to guess:

"what is soft, white, and puffy?"

my cousin who was probably 8 or 10 at the time said:


He will never hear the end of it.

the cat claws the dog!

this was my favorite book as a child because i laughed hysterically when i saw the picture of the cat clawing the dog. i would belly laugh for minutes... my mom must have been confused as to what was so funny.
anyway, i'm doing a report for my Children's Literature class on Audrey and Don Wood. It's interesting to see the "behind the scenes" stuff about their books -- especially this one!

peace be with you.... definitely

this video is the only thing making me laugh today.

"i love these guys more than myself."

sorry to be a debbie downer lately. whaaa whaaa
just remember:

"always have true faith, and always be victorious!"
"i march to a beat of a different drummer."
"i like the fact that people look at me with twelve heads like.. ooo what's that?!"
"judges, i plan to knock you on your feet."
"i'm gonna just wing it!"
"why do i feel like giving the camera the finger?"
"take it! take it! take it! I'm going for actressing!"
"If I could legally moon ya, I would!"

magic 8 ball

do you ever wish we all had a magic 8 ball
in which we could see our future?
i know it's possible to make life's decisions (because obviously everyone has made them) but i am so overwhelmed and confused by them. i can't wait until i can just hold my baby and know that it's all over...
until my kids grow up and then i have to worry about them

this week i realized (again) how amazing my little sister is.
i smudge her because i'm so proud.
she pushes me away because she acts older than i
i ask her advice
i make her talk to people for me
i look to her for help
she always makes the right decisions
she is always logical
she is such a good, good girl.
she stands up for herself and for what
she knows to be true when friends do not.
and i'm so proud to call her my little sister!
i love you al!

i will not

come to terms with my eyes not being blue.
some tell me they're green. others tell me they're grey.
i wish they were as blue as they used to be!

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

i am so lucky

that i met 3 of my best friends freshman year.
being randomly roomed with Laur was such a blessing.
thanks to my Heavenly Father!
I would have died without them.
