They like me, they really like me!


goode day and babies eating corn on the cob

I had such a good day today. I had to work 7am-2pm which means I had most of the day off today. so what did I do... The family went swimming (me, chris, nephew,niece and MIL). The pool was really nice and My 4 year old nephew has been taking swimming lessons and he really enjoys being in the water. My 14 month old niece LOVED the water. she had never been in the pool before and she seemed to thoroughly enjoy it. I even taught her how to splash.. bad Auntie Haley (I teach her all the bad things to do like blow raspberries hehe) we then had a delicious dinner all together and my niece ate like a piggy and she ate all the corn off the cob! it was the cutest thing in the world!

my nephew and I in the car

My niece eating corn off the cob.. this was her first time ever!

3 pounds

i gained 3 pounds.. I'm really disappointed in myself. I was going to good. I know your weight can fluctuate and 3 pounds isn't TERRIBLE but I really wanted it to keep going DOWN not UP.

new goal: 5 pounds by the end of June

today: jogged/walked 2 miles


face lift

I thought my blog needed a face lift.. I was getting kind of bored with the plain background. tell me what you think!

very upset

Yesterday, California supreme court has ruled to uphold proposition 8. If you do not know, proposition 8 puts a ban on all gay marriage in the state of California. This also means that all gay marriages have been annulled that happened prior to this legislation. This is a very sad day. these people who voted for proposition 8 must be very close minded people to think a man and a man or a woman and woman should not be given the same rights and be able to marry just like a man and a woman should. My question is why? Why should these people not be afforded the same rights as everyone else (isn't that what the constitution says, all men are created equal?) why does it effect YOUR life if 2 gay men want to get married? your life does not change any, you can go on just like it wan any other day, Hell you probably wouldn't even notice the difference. why is your religous beliefs deciding this? yes "Marriage" as a term is a religous term, however it is a LEGAL document there fore it is the states jurisdiction, is it not? if the church does not agree with it, they don't have to perform the marriages and the couple can go elsewhere, but now they can go nowhere. It is called tolerance people. you may not agree with it, you may not like it but this is life and there are gay people in the world and you sometimes you just have to fucking get over it. my fiance always says (in his devils advocate tone of voice) why make an exception for a small percentage of people? I ask why go to great lenghts to ruin such a small group of people lives? they are all people! and lets step away from a social point of view and look at economics for a second. California is in debt, they didnt even give anyone tax returns, they just kept the money. Marriage lisences= money, weddings =money, california lost a WHOLE lot of money on this one.

come on America. I though this was the home of the brave and the land of the FREE. This legislation shows me a bunch of cowards afraid to face reality and it takes away freedoms of thousands of people. I thiought this was 2009 not 1960 and i thought we were moving in a forward direction. i guess not!

revenge? If we are like you in the rest, we will

I need to start exercising again! I have been really lazy this last week or so and I really need to get back into it. Maybe ill go for a run tonight or I will start again tomorrow morning, I should start keeping track of the days that I get out there and do something. Christopher and I did go for a nice long walk yesterday. We walked about 2 miles and it was very nice, but I am not sure that walking is enough to get me into shape. It doesn't help that I haven't been eating really well lately. I was so proud of myself because I have lost 10 pounds since Christmas and I have never really lost weight before.

I guess I have fallen off the bandwagon a bit.... I am going to start climbing back on


friday 5 a little late

Its the Friday 5.. only on a Saturday night
  1. What kind of out-of-school lessons did you take as a kid? I took French Horn lessons, Dance lessons, Acting lessons
  2. What valuable lesson did you learn this past week? That my sister is now of legal adult age and I should really think of her that way and not as a child anymore.. also that it takes a lot to say no to someone but it gets easier with time
  3. Who in your life really needs to be taught a lesson? My sister for sure
  4. What kinds of lessons would you love to have a private teacher for right now? French horn again. I really miss taking lessons
  5. What steps have you taken to lessen the impact of these rough economic times? work a little harder, spend a little less and enjoy life just as much if not more

I have the best finace ever!

He is still at work at Shaw's and I just sent him a text requesting the he procure me a bag of peanut butter M&M's. he sends me a text back saying the he will. That text is then followed by another one saying "you are so f'ing lucky, last one" this means that he has the LAST bag of peanut butter M&M's in the store and it bringing them home for ME. I knew I was marrying this wonderful man for a reason. <3

work was good tonight. It was not as busy as last night but it was still steady. I did really well tonight and I did not need a lot of help. I was really trying to be self sufficient so that everyone though that i was capable of the job and I didn't seem like a helpless person to my supervisors and the customers. There are still some things that I don't know how to do, like the more complicates lottery things, but for the most part I can do it all. I was even out of there on time tonight.

I was supposed to work tomorrow but I gave my shift away to my friend Andrew who needed the hours more that I did. So that mean I am getting a day (well kind of.. iIhave a concert in Blackstone MA tomorrow.. so if you are in the area I play french horn in American Band and it is a free concert so come see us!) off and I think I will wake up early and go to church with Christopher tomorrow. Iell we don't really go to church.... he sings at church and is paid for it so I like to go to listen to him sing. I am not really a believer so I don't do any of the praying (I usually sit in the back so as to not draw a lot of attnetion to my self.. I am a pro I have been to many a church service to just "listen" at this point) However, if there happens to be a good preist, rector, preacher, what have you, I do enjoy the sermon and I like to think of it more as a life lesson that a teaching of god.


I thought

That when I was done with school I would be so happy because I would have free time..

I'm Bored

I have nothing to do to fill my time that is not either working or sleeping hehe. I want to start reading but I don't know what I should read. any suggestions of ANYTHING are totally welcome. I just spend a lot of time at home and honestly that sucks. And of course Chris works during the day so he isn't around to entertain me or anything.

in other news
  • I got a B+ in Microbiology! That was a pretty flippin awesome bit of news. I thought I was definitely gonna bomb the final but I got a 136/150 which equals about a 90%. Very exciting
  • I have a new job at work. I am now in the customer service desk. It is a lot of fun. I like helping people plus it is something new to do so I am not as bored as I was. Plus it pisses off the mean old cashier lady that I work with. so I kill 2 birds with one stone hehe
I guess that is it for now.
It is beautiful out so maybe I will go do something but I just dont know

Tonight my friend Jessica is coming over so we can study for micro. Shes gonna bring pizza.. mmm the best study food ever hehe. I like Jess shes cool and I hope we can really become friends because I still haven't made any real friend out here yet. I mean I love the people I work with they are awesome but we never hang out because... well.. we all work hehe. I do get kinda loely out here though because I don't really do anything except work and school, so friends would be good.

ok well off to relax and maybe clean for the afternoon



then end is nearing

5 more days and this semester is DONE. I am sooo happy about this you have no idea!

off to study!


new tattoo

I have a hankering for a new tattoo. Im thinking about some nice plain scroll work on my foot like this :

Something to that effect anyhow

I think maybe my friend Amenda (yes that is the correct spelling) from work and I will go get a new tattoo together this summer. I love tattoos and I have wanted to get my second one for a while now!

I do have one tattoo already . I got it on my 18th birthday and I LOVE it. It is a full color lilly on my hip

(not the skinniest girl in the world so don't mind the pudge)

I love it because it looks like water colors like someone just painted it on. <3



Sorry I haven't had much to say lately everyone. School and work has kind of consumed my life right now.. By the end of next week I will be done with school and will finally get to do some relaxing and some soul searching. I need to find something that brings me stress relief. If I am going to become a nurse I need to figure out how to deal with stress better. I want to be a nurse and I DO NOT want my inability to cope to interfere with that one little bit. I want to lose 6 more pounds. I am down to 161.. 160 on a good day.. I would really like to get back to my precollege weight of 155.. even less would be fantastic and I think this summer is the perfect time to achieve this goal. I need to get over my fear of needles so to remedy that I think I am going to give blood this summer. I have never given blood and I do not even know my blood type. I also want to read some books this summer and suggestions would be very welcome. I do not read too much during the school year so I would love to read a couple of books over the summer (im sure one of them will be a self help stress book hehe). i also think I am going to try and take a lot of pictures this summer.. Bring my camera EVERYWHERE!

oh.. I guess there is a lot I want to do this summer and I am going to make sure I take the time to do it. well.. off to my microbiology exam.. have a good day everyone!


It is official!

We have a date!

drum roll please......

June 18th, 2011!

this is a huge weight off my shoulders and now we can relax and enjoy each other for a while!
