It's a thankful season, and I'm feelin it.

I'm home :)

It is such a wonderful feeling. Before I go to bed everynight, I pull down one of the scrapbooks my wonderful mother has made for me and I look through it. Talk about a humbling thing. That might sound silly, I know. But when I look through them, all I can think about is how lucky I am to have been raised the way I was. I look at all of those pictures and all I have are WONDERFUL memories! Basically I've just been going to bed every night so grateful for the life I've been given. The majority of all of those memories that I'm so grateful for have a lot of you in them. And as I was looking through them and feeling this way, I honestly thought... I HAVE to blog about this to tell everyone how thankful I am for the part they've played in my life. Don't laugh, but I was totally getting emotional in my bed looking through these pictures of emily helping my with math homework, my siblings and I on camping trips, stephanie and I making disgusting faces at the camera because we thought we were hilarious, danielle and I making up dances, Court painting my toes the night before emily's wedding, my mom with tears in her eyes in every holiday picture, Amy, Steph, Danielle, Emily, and I at the Britney Spears concert, The first time I met Jill- we danced to britney spears together (best bonding experience ever? i think so!), First day of school pictures with the whole neighborhood, Whitney sharing a twin bed with me and 2 of my nieces and nephews, Spending time at the Arnold Beach Haven, Dancing with my daddy at Marc and Connie's wedding, every holiday with the Mitchell's and I could go ON AND ON!!! how is it fair that one girl has been surrounded by so much love in her life? I guess this was a good time of the year for me to be having this realization... after all, it is thanksgiving :)

I'm thankful for you all.

Happy thanksgiving :)

Ohhhhh Dearrrr

Life has been crazy for me for the past 2 weeks... wow 2 weeks now already. I just don't know how much I can say on the blog because you never know who finds there way on here if ya know what I mean. I've somehow, very quickly found myself tangling quite the little web. Yes, you've guess it... this involves boys. I know most of you are married and none of this matters to all of you, but it's a huge part of my life right now. I feel like I'm the main character in a movie that you watch and you're just dying to see how it's going to end up. Let me tell you briefly about this main charcters situation... She's been seeing the same boy for a couple of weeks now and enjoys it. He's a nice boy. She would even go as far as to say that she likes him, but she wants things to go as SLOW as possible! For some reason, she's all of the sudden afraid of getting serious. She's pretty dang certain that this boy is interested in persuing this... whatever it is. Of course, it can't be as simple as that. There's always that one boy that you notice everyday and have a secret crush on but won't ever admit it to yourself because you don't want to like him becaues you know he'll never ask you out. WELL- that boy asked her out. They went out. And spent the next 3 days together. It was impossible to lie to herself anymore, she was falling for him fast....bad move. Why a bad move you say? Because this girl has been victim to the meanest girl on the planet many times including this situation. Mean girl now has the secret crush boy. There is SO much more to it... that's the basics. That's just the way the world works right, you like the one and he likes you... but the one you like even MORE, likes your arch nemesis. told you- it's like a movie. AND to add to this complication, I have absolutely NOT forgotten about michael... as a matter of fact- i can't EVER stop thinking about him. I TRYYYYYYYY to let myself feel absolutely crazy about other boys like do about michael, but it's not not happening. oh dear. you see. look what i've done. This all sounds like stupid girl drama, i know, and i'm sorry about that... but it is in fact- my life.

Thank goodness it's all kind of fun at the same time as stressful haha :)

6 months!

Well Everyone, today is November 2nd... do you know what that means? That means that Michael Eugene Woodmansee has been on his mission for 6 months. Crazy, right?! I am very happy to report that he is SO happy. He just sounds so great and that makes me feel good. He's honest, and tells me about how it's hard and tiring, but he loves it. He loves the people so much. He is serving in the same area his dad served in and so he's really excited about that and determined to meet someone who knows his dad. I miss him. I do. But in the best way possible if you know what I mean :) We're both happy, and we keep in touch and everything is great. here are some pictures of him on his mishy. He looks different with short hair, but naturally still great .. hehe! I Just couldn't let the day go by without sharing with the world that it's been 6 months! I just honestly, couldn't be happier or more proud of him. :) <3

Who knew Taiwan was so pretty?! I love when he sends pictures of what it looks like over there!
He went to this waterfall, and this week he's going to monkey mountain... no joke- WILD MONKEYS that drink your water!!!! cool huh?!

This is a guy he's been working real closely with, they made a deal- no smoking for him, and no english for michael.

Leaving the MTC, he was SO ready to get out of there after 12 weeks. Aren't you all proud of the tie dye shirt that says "Eugene Saturday Market" on the front?!
He does that with his hand in TONS of pictures! I guess it's the Taiwanese way of making fun of us Americans because we always do something with our hands in pictures.
I just love this one. I hope these Taiwanese people are cool with their pictures being on my blog haha... he's so sweatttttty- He says it's ridiculously hot!
Michael and his companion drew the plan of salvation with chalk in the park where he said old people listen to christmas music in english every morning hahaha! :)I LOVE THIS ONE!

Best friends hippie and pippie :) why... do you ask does jenni's hair look platinum blonde and stephy's look blackish and blonde? ooooo- BECAUSE IT IS!! I love having steph in Beauty school! I'll post more pics of our new hair Do's soon!! WE LOVE THEM! steph did mine- she's a pro already!
This is my seriously, AWESOME neighbor Kelsie! Isn't her costume so radical?!?! I died laughing!
Me and my WONDERFUL roomie Ashlie after we survived the fear factory!!!

Seriously- I love halloween! SO MUCH! It's just such a wonderful holiday. We had a great one this year! Steph and I were going to do spooky dinner, but for a number of reasons, we cancelled that idea. I did make some delicious halloween cookies though :) Anyway- to school, I wore my awesome "trick or treat, smell my feet" shirt that glows in the dark and I got from my one and only Steph and Whit. And I wore my Ghost earings... awesomeeeeee!! Then for night time, My roomie Ashlie and I were hippies and steph was pippie longstocking... she was SO CUTE! I think it's kind of a hint when your roomie wants to be a hippie for halloween and so she asks to barrow your clothes... hahahaha hmmmm... and I was a hippie and wore all of my own clothes... meh- that's the way i role I guess! haha... i was more of a modern hippie- not a 70s one, because this way it was free! haha! And once again, thanks to steph, I have a radical peace necklace. That i wear almost every day by the way. ANYWAY- we dressed up and did our hair all aweseme, me and ash in dreds and stephy in awesome braids. I guess this is the point in the blog where I mention that a certain fellow asked me to go to the halloween carnival with him. :) yes- this was a good thing. He's a nice, cute, good fellow that I have class with and have probably gone out with a time or 2.. ;) SO he brought some of his friends and I brought mine! It was fun! you know how carnivals are. we got our faces painted, did the good ol' cake walk, and ate some candy. It actually reminded me of those carnivals they used to have at Centennial Elementary, it was so cool!! THEN- We went to the FEAR FACTORY in rigby!!!! okay, scary, scary, scary. FO REAL!!!!! Since when are people in haunted houses allowed to GRAB YOU?!?!?! seriously- like full on hands in my hair and all over my waiste. YIKES IT WAS SO SCARY!!! Probably the best part though was hearing steph in her ABSOLUTE TERROR!at the end, when you think you're done, they CHASE YOU DOWN WITH A TRUCK!!!1 i'm not kidding you, they drive after you and i seriously didn't know if that was part of the haunted house, or like some crazy drunk kids trying to kill me... oh gosh- it was so scary!! Fortunately, I went to this haunted house with that same nice fellow. hahahahaa. It was so fun though! and there was a nice bon fire there and everything.. so great! Anyway- it was a spooky, fun halloween!!!!
