An interesting year coming to an end..

I always get a little reflective on the year when New Years is among us. 2008 was an interesting year! There were some sad times, and some happy times. I can't believe how fast time flies! Ehh... i'll be 30 before I know it. 2011 is quickly approaching :). Here are some things I want to accomplish in 2009.

1. Get to the gym atleast 5 times a week! Go before work. During the month of December. I have slacked considerably! I will be healthier if I go!

2. Be better at staying in contact with people. Sometimes I forget to call people. And then 6 months pass and I realize, I need to call whomever. I need to be a better friend! :(.

3. I need to stop being so shy! I am very shy around men. That is probably one reason I am not married. I am content being single. However, around the holidays I always get a little depressed that I am not married with kids.

4. I need to do things to better myself. LOL. Sometimes I am so concerned for others that I forget about myself. Which is not a bad thing, but sometimes I just need to do stuff for myself.

5. I want to go on vacation somewhere. While this really isn't a resolution it's a wish ;). I need to go somewhere with a friend.

I am actually glad that 2008 is almost over! It's been a crappy year due to the economy, deaths, people being sick etc. I am just looking for a new start to a new year! I hope everyone has a Happy New Year. Be safe!

So very grateful...

It's that time of year to be thankful for all that has been given to me and to all of us. This Christmas has been a "different" year. I have not been working since Thanksgiving which has been AWESOME! And most of my Christmas shopping was done months ago. I decided this year to pick a name of an Angel Tree and purchase a needy child a gift. I bought him a pair of $50 van shoes. His name is Alex and he is 10 years old. It is great doing something like that. Next year I am planning on doing more for some needy kids. It brings me great joy! I also LOVE giving gifts, and have bought all of those near and dear to me gifts. I have given most out, but still have the ones for my family left. :). I have been overwhelmed by my friends generosity this Christmas. I love each and everyone one of my friends. I could not ask for better friends. I have a great family whom I love! My 2 siblings and I ocassionally have falling outs mainly because of our age differences but I still love them. I hope that all of you have a VERY MERRY Christmas and a joyous and wonderful New Year...

Utah is going to the Sugar Bowl :)

GO UTES!!!!! Let's go 13-0!

Adventures of Miss Fifi and me!

My friend Felice and I both have time off from work! YAY for furlough! So, before we were laid off from work for 7 weeks we put together our own version of a "Bucket List". It's not a list of what we want to do before we die but what we want to do before we go back to work. In the past 2 weeks we have crossed off a number of those activities off our list.

Monday November 24th..
We went to this restaurant in Layton called "Holy Smoke" I must say the best BBQ'd cheeseburger I have ever had. Yum! Then we went and watched the movie Twilight. We giggled a lot. :). I loved the books and loved the movie. I made her laugh at comments I was saying during the movie :).

Tuesday December 2nd...
Felice came over and we went and got Chinese for lunch watched a comedy special we had both been wanting to see on my On Demand and watched a few episodes from one of my favorite shows :). We had a lot of fun! We tend to have a lot of fun together.

Thursday December 4th..

Our friend Stacey was supposed to go with us, and we had invited Felice's mom Laurell to go but both Stacey and Laurell could not go. YAY! Laurell is retiring today! :). Anyway, we jumped on front runner and went to Salt Lake, and then jumped on trax and went to Sandy to the Festival of Trees! It was only $4 bucks to get in! All proceeds go to benefit Primary Children's hospital! It was fun. There were many gorgeous trees! We decided that we are gonna decorate one and sell it next year in the show all proceeds will go to the hospital. Stupid me didn't eat a decent meal before we went so after being on Frontrunner for an hour, and Trax (which was really bumpy) I ended up getting a bad headache. So after we were done at the Festival of Trees, we decided to go to eat at the Cheesecake Factory. I had such a bad headache that I ended up breaking out into a cold sweat, and throwing up half of my meal. What a waste of 15 bucks!! We didn't even get cheesecake. Felice looked a little worried about me being sick. LOL. We went to Fashion Place mall where I laid my head on a table and used my jacket as a pillow and closed my eyes for 20 minutes. Felice said a lot of people looked at me like I was homeless LOL. I just had a horrible headache. Riding back to the Salt Lake Station I almost threw up twice and I had to talk to Felice with my eyes closed. I was having bad motion sickness. Frontrunner was a smooth ride and after Felice got off in Layton I slept on the way back to Ogden. I went home took more headache medicine and went to sleep. I need to talk to my doctor about my migraines I get them quiet often!

Felice and I have more plans next week to go and just have fun since we don't have to work for about another 5 weeks! It's heavenly!
