Project 365: Day 61- January 30th

Ben Strom said you can buy a doughnut anywhere.. and while he's probably right, I can guarantee that these doughnuts are not going to taste ANYTHING like the doughnuts my momma makes! This is what we woke up to this morning... how amazing, right? The second I walked out of my room, my mouth started watering. They were absolutely delicious! Thanks mom for the delectable breakfast!

After breakfast, I headed out to do some shopping for Eth's Valentine's Day present! I am so excited to get everything together and give it to him! Only 2 more weeks tomorrow.. eek! hehe! :) I wish I could even spill the beans on what's going on, but I totally can't! Ugh, I'm a terrible secret keeper, haha! Everyone will know in good time!

We also journeyed to my mom's work for some things today as well.. and we channeled the spirit of 4 year olds and twirled on the spinny chairs. How fun!

And this would be a scale at Walmart. I TOTALLY weighed my purse on that sucker and it weighs a whopping 8 pounds... I wish I was kidding! No wonder I have back trouble, haha! *smacks head*

All in all, it was a wonderful day! It has been a great weekend so far with my brother being home.. I miss my boyfriend like crazy.. and just really need to get homework done, haha! Cheers to Project 365 and life :)

Project 365: Day 60- January 29th

Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero. ~Marc Brown

Days like today are my favorite: My brother came home from college for the weekend! Life just feels "back together" when he's home. He's one of my best friends. When he's home, you know you're going to be entertained and continually have someone to
talk to about anything. And Marc Brown was right... being a brother is better than being a superhero. He is my superhero.

And we of course had PIZZA HUT! Meatlovers, breadsticks, and cinnastix with a lovely glass of Pepsi. Mmm! It's one of our favorites and we definitely ate it up!

Then my grandma called and asked me to do some research on some songs she likes. She gave me a few words from them.. and told me to find them and burn them to a CD for her haha! She's hilarious! She gave me about 4 words each song... so here's to finding those on the Christian Broadcasting System...

Then, the whole family is sitting around chit-chatting, eating some food, you know, just enjoying each other's company and all of the sudden my dad starts holding his arm and starts whimpering. He was making weird noises and wouldn't let go of his elbow! Makala starts freaking out like what the heck is wrong with you? hahhaa! And dad just gets up and stands there... like with this weird face, haha! I can't even explain it, but it was the funniest thing I think I've ever seen! You had to be here, I swear! It was HILARIOUS. We all couldn't breathe we were laughing so hard because he just froze.. like this crazy face. Just froze, haha! This would be where the whole scenario started.. that's where he was seated, haha!

And this would be dad after he was recovering.. and notice how Makala is ROLLING, haha!

And Corey was impersonating dad, bahaha! This is EXACTLY what his face looked like LOL!

And the night ended with my bff, as usual :)

Cheers to Project 365!

Project 365: Day 59- January 28th

Mama said there'll be days like this,
There'll be days like this Mama said...

That's a sad,sad picture of me with my car keys. Wanna know why? haha-- here goes. I stayed at Ethan's last night which is about 40 minutes from my house. He has to get up early for work.. about 5AMish.. so, we're both pretty much like zombies when I stay. His alarms go off, and he says "Babe, it snowed a lot last night, want me to go start your car for you?" How sweet right? So, I fumble around, grab my purse, hand him the keys, and lay back down for like a few more minutes of sleep. I was out of it, you know? Well, we get ready and we are walking out the door at about 5:30 and I just had this gut feeling that my keys were locked in the car.. and sure enough, I go check my door and it's LOCKED while the car is RUNNING. So Ethan's like.. no way! So I call my rents to tell them what's going on and why I'm not on the road yet.. and I mention the fact that I forgot I had a remote control starter on my car.. and of course Ethan hears it haha! I just totally forgot this morning that I had a remote control starter. Completely blanked. And I wasn't going to tell him because I thought that'd make him more mad *sigh* Well, he heard and he's like "What the heck? You have a remote control starter and now we have to go through this?" Yea, I felt bad. So, he has no wire hangers, so he drives to the local police station to ask if they could get it open for me. It took the police officer about 25 minutes to get the door unlocked... I am VERY thankful that he did get it open though because things were getting quite tense around the apartment. haha! So, at about 6:20AM we finally left... Ethan has to be at work @ 7 and it's a 1.5 hour drive.... so, yea, he was going to be late and I felt terrible. I thought the police officer was going to have a domestic dispute before it was all over, but thank God, the guy got it open and I left and got home safely. Sorry to my amazing boyfriend for making him late. Gah, what a start to the day right? haha!

So, once I got home, I just wanted to relax for a few. I have a lot of homework that's due by tomorrow, so I worked hard on that today. Plus I have 2 papers due Monday, so I've been trying to get outlines together for those as well.. all while watching Season 4 of Supernatural. Notice how these Winchester boys have been showing up in my Project 365 for the past 3 weeks? I swear, it's an addiction.

To make that rough day better... I drove and met my mom, dad, and Makala at Subway for dinner! I even changed up my usual. I am shocked too, so don't worry haha! I got a 6" meatball sub on italian herbs and cheese bread with pepperjack cheese, lettuce, tomato, and jalapeno peppers. And of course, a sweet tea! (and baked BBQ lays!) It was sooo good!

And the night ended with some Vampire Diaries and MORE Supernatural. Lazy night, but it's wonderful. However, I miss the boyfriend... gonna be a long 3 days.

Cheers to Project 365.. and rainy days. It makes you appreciate the sun so much more :)

Project 365: Day 58- January 27th

Dean Winchester: "Come on man. I know Sam, ok? Better than anyone. He's got more of a conscience than I do. I mean the guy feels guilty searching the internet for porn."

Yeah, those are my boys! These past 3 weeks or so, I have enjoyed catching up on Supernatural and I think it's obvious that I am absolutely hooked! I started Season 4 today... gah, I am absolutely in LOVE with Dean Winchester, but shhh.. don't tell Ethan, haha ;) I just LOVE watching this TV show.. I seriously have to get caught up though so I can start watching the new episodes! Wish me luck! :)

Then, I had stir fry for dinner with my momma! Looks good, huh? It was :)

And the night ended with me heading to Ethan's house to spend the night. This would be the usual picture that I take before leaving.. bags, coat, and all :)

Project 365: Day 57- January 26th

Truth be told- I could conquer the world with one hand as long as I knew you were holding the other...

This was how my morning started out. A lovely text message from the boyfriend-- I think he might have a little thing for me hehe :) It was our 1 Month anniversary today, can you believe that? It feels like it's been forever since we started dating.. and I meant that in a good way hehe! We fuss and fight sometimes... we challenge each other, disagree from time to time, but life would surely be different without him in it. He makes me life, makes me feel brave. I am very blessed to have him in my life and I'm looking forward to many more months!

Then I mailed out a job application and transcript request form so everyone please be crossing your fingers for that one! :)

Then I made no bake cookies to prepare for our girls night we were having tonight! It was my first time ever making them and I think they came out rather nicely, hehe! :)

Then the girls came over.. and Helen brought chinese food, which was delicious! I had the Sesame chicken! My favorite!

And Helen, Kourt, and I kicked back and relaxed. We watched Secret Life & American Idol and just caught up. It was a great night and I'm really excited for next week! Sometimes it's just great to chill with your girls, talk, and relax!


Project 365: Day 56- January 25th

The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book. ~Author Unknown

This quote would describe the bulk of the paper I have spent the entire week working on concerning the Theory of Multiple Intelligences. Through this paper, I was encouraging teachers to broaden their teaching strategies to accommodate student's different learning styles and intelligences. It took a great deal of research and a good deal of effort, but I finally dropped in the dropbox this evening! What a feeling of accomplishment.. now, lets start researching for this final paper, haha! :)

And, I am a LIST LADY! I make a list of all the assignments due in each of my classes and I finally got 6 check marks for the week.... ready for this new week ahead of me!

And the night ended with me filling out job applications! Cross your fingers! And if you know anyone that's hiring someone with a business degree, let me know! :)

Cheers to Project 365 and getting things done hehe :)

Project 365: Day 55- January 24th

Bob Dylan said "A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do."

Well, my oh my... I have been successful today haha! I got up
this morning... and did what I wanted to do today... and that is BE LAZY haha :) It was quite the enjoyable day! So, since I spent the greater part of my day in my bed, I figured I'd take a beautiful little picture of it! What was I doing all day? Watching Season 3 of Supernatural and working on my Theory of Multiple Intelligences paper that is due tomorrow... that I still haven't finished.. *sigh* All in good time, all in good time, haha :)

And once again, this is all I did today, so I took a picture of me in my sweatpants and sweatshirt to document it haha! I thought I looked very studious! hehe :)

Cheers to lazy rain days.. and Project 365!

Project 365: Day 54- January 23rd

A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip. ~Author Unknown

January 26th, 1966 my mother was brought into the world-- and we had a celebration of her life last night hehe! My mom invited some of her closest friends.. and of course, my sister, me, and the boyfriend out to dinner and drinks and w
e had SUCH a good time! The picture above is my mom and one of her friends from high school Mitzi. Her and her husband got the treat of sitting across from Ethan and me... not sure if they were excited or scared, haha! And bless Ethan's little heart.. he had to put up with this stuff all night long... maybe I had a little bit too much to drink. The verdict is still out. I guess you can decide, haha!

We had too much fun! And of course, the night wouldn't have been complete if my sister weren't there haha! I just adore her!

And this is the last picture we took last night... so I thought it'd be a nice ending to my Project 365 for the day, haha! This is a nice shot of Ethan, Jon (Ethan's brother), and me. Jon and Ethan took me home.. and wouldn't even let me listen to Womanizer! And oh my goodness, do you see that mustard bottle? They were using that to describe something Ethan's car were doing.. and really sat there arguing about it! Men! haha!

All in all, it was an amazing night! I had such a good time. I have one amazing mother and she deserved to have a night of fun for herself. Thank God for my amazing boyfriend that put up with me all night and got me safely back to my house hehe :)

Cheers to Project 365!
