Steve is ruining my life!

We just spent 20 minutes out in the cold waiting for Steve to mosey on outta here.
Right when he went to the other side of the fence we decided to make a run for it and once he heard us, he popped back over to our side!
There was a couple on their balcony and she asked if it was a raccoon and when we told her
it was a possum she said, "Awww I love those! I'll go get him!"
But her boyfriend said, "No! You're gonna get rabies! Thats a big ol' sucker"
So now there are four of us watching Steve watch us.
A minute later a couple caring piles of laundry passes us up not able to see whats
waiting for them up ahead, so instead of letting them scare him off I say,
Stupid Jenna.
The girl screams and says that shes never seen one up close and the guy gets
closer to him, like in his face close.
Then we all scurry by him to get to safety..
well they walked, I scurried, forcing Tim to scurry
and the guy looks behind him and says, "Are you guys running!?"
Damn right we're running! Did you see that nasty thing!

It was all made worth it when the guy says, "Those things are nice, like the one in Pooh Bear and shit"

Thanks Steve, for another entertaining night!

Merry Christmas!!!

I know, I know...I forgot the 24th day of Christmas!

And today I did a horrible job of capturing the day, but I did get a few pictures!

All in all a great day with the family!

I soooo miss my hunny though! I'm so thankful this is our last Christmas apart
and completely excited to be able to spend a Christmas with the Lopez family
next year as husband and wife!

On The Twenty-Third Day of Christmas...

I tried to make a video post with my new iTouch but
I don't have the editing skills on that quite yet. Tim has his computer in Porterville so this post will have to do :)

I tried to make Christmas cookies for my family but they didnt really work out.

I rolled the dough all out and used cute cookie cutters and
when it was time to transfer them
to the baking sheet they fell apart!

My family gets Christmas Bricks!

And I had to share Gibson's picture with Santa.
He is not amused.

And...if Tim and I have a daughter, I'm pretty sure she will be like this.

On The Ninth Day of Christmas...

I've been wanting to make gingerbread houses for a couple years now but
just haven't found the time to fit it in. How fun would it be to have a gingerbread house contest
at your holiday get-together with your family!?

I'm on a mission to do this!
Here's some inspiration, because let's face it, they usually look like this:

Stray from tradition and go modern!

Soooo adorable! I want to live here!
Gingerbread Barn!?

And the best for last!

I can't get over these little "mug ornaments"!

I'm channeling Martha Stewart..can ya tell!?

On The Seventh Day of Christmas...

Mariners Church is selling "Give Cards" on their website.
I think it's a really cool idea for stocking stuffers and it will give you
a warm fuzzy feeling inside...fer reals!

You purchase the card and the person you give it to redeems it online and can put it towards these causes:

LITERACY: 85% of all incarcerated juveniles are illiterate. Your gift will reduce the school dropout rate for students in need.

MEDICAL: 60% of all deaths in the world are from a preventable disease. Your gift will provide treatment, medication, medical clinics & wheelchairs for those suffering.

FAMILIES: 22,000 children die each day due to poverty. Your gift will meet urgent needs for families dealing with a crisis.

ORPHANS: 1 in 5 foster kids become homeless after they turn 18. Your gift will help bring healing and hope to these at-risk children and youth.

GOSPEL: 1/3 of the world’s population does not have access to the Gospel. Your gift will help church partners take the Gospel message to unreached people.

Here's the website:

Happy Thanksgiving!

What are you thankful for?
I'm thankful for my family and friends and of course my Tim!
I'm so very blessed with all that I have.

I am also thankful that I found this again.
Oh Capucine, how I've missed you!
(If our future daughter could look like this and speak French I'd be forever grateful)

How Many 8 yr. Olds Could You Pummel Before They Take You Down?

Revisiting the age old question: How many 8 year olds could you pummel before they take you down? (self.AskReddit)

submitted 24 days ago by HempLord

A friend and I were talking about this the other day.. Considering your average 8 year old is ~50 pounds, 4' tall, and you're in an open field, no weapons, and an endless amount of children coming at you, how many could you take? Keep in mind they're fearless, so the sight of their fallen comrades wouldn't deter them. I'm pretty confident I could take ~50 of them before eventually becoming exhausted. Assuming it only takes one punch/boot to the face to drop an 8 year old, I figure they really couldnt do much until I tire out and can't keep up with the influx of new ones. It could possibly be more if I'm able to pick one up by the leg and use it as a flail of sorts, swinging it in a circular motion allowing me to keep a little perimeter around me while expending little energy. The skull would definitely do work if swung by the feet, so that would be pretty good I think.

My friend, on the other hand, goes "About 1,000. Probably more."

His strategy would be to stack the 8 year olds in a pile as he drops them, and then just keep stacking them up while staying on top of the pile. Once the 8 year olds are stacked high enough, it would be difficult for the new ones to climb and he could just kick them in the face as they neared the top. I reminded him that he has zero conditioning, and that he'd tire out way before completing the mountain. Besides, how effing many 8 year olds would you have to stack to make a sizable pile?

Engagement Photoshoot

320 days till our wedding

That seems like a lot but apparently it's not.
Now that we have the engagement pictures done and the album is in the
process of being made I'm not sure which step is next.
I thought I had the theme set but then I found a couple more that I liked.
I'm afraid I'll have too many ideas and it will be one big, messy,cluster of
my imagination spewed into one room.
Deep Breath...
Then I have questions like,
"What if I buy all of this stuff then the day of it doesn't look right!?"
"What if my mom or his mom thinks its hideous!?"
"What if people don't get my style?!"


My conclusion you ask? Well...keep it simple, don't over do it, no over spending, D.I.Y my little heart out (as well as family and friends little hearts), and make it special for Tim and I.

I'm confident I'll have my dreamy, rustic, "Anthropologie" style wedding.

Whew! I'm done ranting now!

It's Already November!?

I feel like this is the first chance I've had to just sit down and do nothing.
Hold on a second....whew...This feels nice.
I can't believe it's already November! This year is flying by which leads me to believe next
year will fly by even faster.

So lets see...

-Last week I finished up my root canal and got a temporary crown then we got to see Leah and Julia. We went to Calimesa to get our hair done by Julia then went to dinner with Leah.

-One of my classes ended already and I got an A, maintaining my 4.0 (Thank you very much!)

-Yesterday was Halloween and Tim and I went to Disneyland to renew my pass.
I decided to take a new picture and it looks like I'm missing a tooth so thats pretty cool.
We also witnessed the most horrifying incident ever! After "World of Color" ended it was chaos
with people everywhere. As we were passing this woman pushing a bundled up baby in a stroller,the baby fell out and she ran it over! Not noticing, and thinking it was just a speed bump of some sort, the lady just kept trying to get the stoller over her ! Finally a stranger ran over and picked her up. The baby didnt even make a peep. Tim was in shock for about 5 minutes.

-Today was our engagement shoot and all I can say is thank God it's over!
This was such a simple thing and I planned it for months. I can't imagine how I'm going to
be when the wedding gets closer. I think my head might explode!!
But I think it turned out pretty well. I had fun and I got my makeup done at the M.A.C. store so
that makes for a good Monday.

So, now the only thing I have planned is the Conan test show on Thursday! Wo o hoo!
