I have a lot of pictures that I need to upload that will add to the sharing of my Hawaii stories. For some reason, I can't seem to find the time to do it. I mean at work today, I painted my fingernails, ate Easter candy, and listened to music on myspace. Really, where was I supposed to fit in blog time? Since returning from HI I have had a hard and fun time adjusting. The past week I have walked around with a bottle of water in one hand and a bottle of lotion in the other and still my skin feels very tight. Also the drinking of so much water has led to a lot of bathroom going, so much so that I no longer see the need to do up my pants. That's right, I have been walking around with my pants zipped up, but not buttoned up and I must say, I enjoy it far more than I should. I've also enjoyed the increase of butt crack showing that this has produced. TO add to my list, I have been bombarded with hay fever and am suffering greatly. I thought the drowning myself with water would help but it has not and I am left sounding like a smoker due to my stuffy nose and sore throat. I must also say that I enjoy sounding a little husky, far more than I should. I think my new motto is: Find joy in the simple pleasures.

Well I am back. Big fat frowny face. I am pretty jet lagged and feeling pretty cranky. My trip was fantastic and I seriously could live there. St. George is windy and dry and after living in the tropics for two weeks, my throat, nose and skin are all shriveled up coming back to where it is so stinkin dry. I plan to feel better on Monday, and that is when I shall share all of my Kauai fun. While there I was trying my hardest to attract a mate, so I can live there of course. Monday I will share the results of that search and the search for the perfect muumuu's for me and Steph. What a wonderful adventure. Don't tell my bosses but I plan on a nap at work today.

Bon Voyage!

I can not believe it is here already. I leave for Hawaii tomorrow morning! I am so excited I can hardly stand it. Everything is pretty much packed, now its time for the day to drag and drag til finally we are on the plane. I don't suppose I will post much while I am gone, so goodbye to all my little loves. I'll see you in 2 weeks.

Like Nanny Like 8 year old?

Today at work, I was making my rounds, gathering laundry, making sure beds were made when I come across this note taped to Trevor's door.

If you can't see it, it says : Doese not need cleannig. I think haha Trevor is cute and funny and his room does look very nice. So I think great and I just go in to gather his laundry from his closet. That is where I find this:

It is a tub of cookie dough. I pick it up to find it completely empty. I just start laughing cause 2 things went through my head. 1: He probably only cleaned his room so I wouldn't come in here and find this and 2: I used to do this all the time, except with frosting. If and when I ever got caught, I would blame it on my brother Justin. Something that to this day I feel guilty about. I plan on writing him a letter or something to apologize. I just can't seem to find the words to say. Justin I am sorry for the hundreds of times you got in trouble for eating the cookies or the frosting or any snack in the house when really it was me. We'll see I am sure that I can think of something. I think it is so funny and I wonder if all kids do this or if it's just me and Trevor.

And here is a picture of my hair cut. I really love it but I don't feel that this picture really shows how funky cool the hair cut is. I think it will be a great hair cut for the summer and Hawaii.

Dancing, Whiplash, and Ducks

This weekend has been the most fantastic weekend I have had in a long while. Friday Steph and I hit up a concert put on by a band called We Shot the Moon and it was fantastic. We danced for 2 hours straight and out of the 100 hundred people that were in attendance at the concert, we were the only ones dancing. The bands were very impressed with our moves and our stamina, so we were invited to hang out with them after the show so we did. The house 2 of the bands were staying at, were crowded so in true groupie fashion, we invited them to stay at our homeless shelter. It was fun to wake up to stinky musicians laying on our floor and couches. Dancing 2 hours, staying up til 3, then waking up at 7 to go run is bad for my body. These past 2 days have been spent trying to recover from Friday night. Saturday I got my hair cut in a super cute, punk rocker sort of way and I love it. I will post a pic as soon as I get one that looks cute. Saturday afternoon, I attended a baby shower for a friend from high school and had a blast with her, her mom and her sister. And Saturday night, Steph and I joined her friends at the showing of a musical called 110 in the Shade. I had a real enjoyable time, I also enjoyed sleeping in til 12 today and going on a nice nature walk with me sister/sheltermate. I leave for Hawaii soon and I am really looking forward to that. Well more tomorrow.

What's Your Name Again?

I have recently been spending time with a boy I'll call Eric. On Sunday, I had an FHE committee meeting after church, Eric was also at this meeting. Now we had introduced ourselves when I first started to go to that ward and exchange hello, how are you's when we see each other. Sunday after our meeting was over, we started chatting and ended spending the entire afternoon together and he got my number before he left. We talked on Monday but didn't see each other. First impression is I think he may be a little bit of a player. Tuesday we watched a movie and talked til like 2 and I am thinking "OK I like how this is going, nice and slow and we'll just see." Last night, we got together again and had a good time talking. I can not remember what exactly we were talking about but he called me Cheyenne. I call him out on it with a "What did you just call me?" Then he realized his mistake and starts apologizing profusely. I just laugh it off and think nothing of it. Maybe its the lack of sleep I've had the last couple of nights but this morning, I wake up and find myself extremely annoyed that he called me the name of an 18 year old girl in our ward. I talk to Steph and she agrees that that was an idiot thing to do even on accident. Then I get a male perspective and tell my friend Spencer about it and I tell him I am annoyed. He offers me some suggestions as to why this boy would make this mistake and then says "Even if it was a mistake, it shows a lack of attention and focus on his part and I understand why you would be annoyed" and I say that is it! That is why I am so annoyed by it and cause that just kinda sealed the deal on my thought that he really is a player. I think I'll start phasing him out, at least I can get back on my good sleeping schedule.

Hawaii Come Faster PLEASE

Ugh I do not want to work. This is what I need to get done today: 2 weeks worth of ironing, go through Trevor and Kenna's clothes and get rid of too small, too holey, too stained; go through toys and get rid of most of them, make a poster for Alex's birthday at preschool, get a snack for preschool, and of course do the regular house work. I am not in a bad mood in any way, I am in a I want to do nothing and just be in Hawaii already mood. The thought of looking at tags on children's clothes all afternoon makes me gag and send my brain into a tissy fit of headaches. 9 days til I get to chill out on a beach. Please Please Please let the time fly. Oh and this past weekend, 2 boys asked for my number. I feel like a real cutie and 1 of them has actually called me and we are getting together tomorrow night.
