Ok Ok... I know, I'm not a good blogger anymore. I started out going strong and it's drastically trailed off. I keep making notes here in a "blogging draft" of things I want to write about and then about this time of night when I think actually updating it, I'm too tired. So... here it goes. :) Maybe I can TRY to put it in a nutshell. I always try to shorten it, but I tend to keep writing.
My little brother Robby has an announcement. He and his girlfriend Amanda are going to have a baby. We are so excited for them. I don't have all the scoop yet but he emailed me tonight and I need to call him tomorrow. ***update since i wrote this is that they are having a boy. they just found out last week. robby visited last night and it was good to have him here.
My friend Heather at work had her baby. It is a mixed baby, part black, and is soooo freaking adorable. Heather works with me. She is one of those friends that has become really close to me, really fast. Have you ever had one of those friendships that feel oddly inspired? It's one of those kind.
Violin Update- Wow. I'm really bad at practicing. I'm not getting through the music to quickly. My little sister Emily started violin way after me and she might even pass me up. (sigh) I need to really make it more of a priority of time if I ever expect to get any better.
Piano Update - I'm actually getting so much better at reading notes, its amazing. It's only taken me my entire life. :) Right now I'm learning a new Jim Brickman song. He is my all time favorite pianist.
My sister Holly in NM had her baby. It was a little girl. Holly and I are talking again, so that is nice to correspond again and no what is going on with eachother.
My Utah Dad (Kerry) has just gone through the temple (in January) and from what I've heard, has made it to the temple every week with my grandparents since. I am so proud of him. He has changed everything around in his life and I look up to him for that.
I was going to go on a trip to Vegas to see Jenya in January and didn't end up going because I had a new roomie move in, her name is Chauni. She is still living here, but to tell you the truth it has been a struggle since then. I also had another roommate move in at the first part of march. That is also becoming a struggle. One of them is always sick or at least thinks she is and the other one I think is lying to me a lot about her life... and about stuff that doesn't matter. I'm thinking of ways to get them out and get other ones in--- GOOD ones. Is there such a thing as good roommates?
I was working out with Angie 3 times a week and that trailed off as "life" happened. However, I have lost 20 lbs since January. Ive been really bad the last couple of weeks at working out. I went hiking with my new boyfriend, not NOT boyfriend anymore, and fell on a rock RIGHT on my tail bone. Ouch! I've been carrying a donut around with me for the most part. I feel like I should be in a retirement home.
I went to SuperCross (dirtbike racing) last weekend in Vegas with Scott, my now ex-boyfriend. We stayed at my friend Jenya's house. It was good to see her because it's been so long. We went to Hoover Dam with Jenya and Preston. I forgot my camera in the car so I still need to get pic's from from Preston's phone cam. SuperCross is awesome! The smell of the gas, the dirt, the sounds of the engines... gotta love the dirt bikes. Here's a couple of pic's we took there. Love my new SX hat? Cute, huh?
This is me and Scott in front of the SuperX track. We are whited out. :( Sad.
Speaking of dirt bikes, I actually got one about a month or two ago. My grandpa gave me one of his old ones because he was going to sell it. It is really old and I mean REALLY old. It's a Honda 126 TL 1976. It still does what it needs to do though. I love it. Next year I want to get a new one with my tax returns, but this will be good for me to learn on.
WORK--- work is going good. Our main product is a marine phytoplankton drink. We are doing an incentive trip for distributors to go to the Sea Farm in Canada next month where they farm the marine phytoplankton and I found out that I get to go. Yay! We are staying in Victoria which i hear is beautiful. Plus we're staying in the Marriott on the bay harbour, then the sea farm is in Van Couver. I'm looking forward to it.
DATING----recap of things since January...fell in love with my best guy friend and got turned down (I'm obviously giving you the extrememly short version and I'm sure Nate would appreciate that). I knew that it would go no where sadly because of where Nate was at in his life, however we have still remained close friends. Here are a couple of pic's of Nate.
Started dating so many people I didn't know what to do with myself and it seemed to be one drama after the next. One weekened I actually booked 5 dates, day dates and night dates... That was a stressful weekend.
In January I went out with my first non member with really, really low expectations of even being interested because I'm not usually interested in anyone I go out with and ended up hitting it off with him right away. Long story short, we've dated ever since til it ended up exclusive and then when reality set in, we actually just broke up tonight. Nothing bad, just don't see where it can go in the long run when our view points are so different. Kind of sucks. Here is a couple of pic's of him/us. He is a Karate Instructor and has his own dojo in Layton. The first pic is of him and one of his students. So cute! One of the things that won me over with him.
Also, I think I want to write a book about my life... but, seeing how I am so awesome at blogging it might be a pipe dream. :)
