Funny stuff

I got this off of someone else's blog and I think every one applies to me! It's too cute.

-I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

-Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you're going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction from which you came, you have to first do something like check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you're crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.

-I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

-Is it just me, or are 80% of the people in the "people you may know" feature on Facebook people that I do know, but I deliberately choose not to be friends with?

-Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all know how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards or FAQ's. We just figured it out. Today's kids are soft.

-There is a great need for sarcasm font. (Seriously)

-I think everyone has a movie that they love so much, it actually becomes stressful to watch it with other people. I'll end up wasting 90 minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone's laughing at the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little bit harder (and a millisecond earlier) to prove that I'm still the only one who really, really gets it. (I always have done this and thought I was just weird)

-How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

-I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

-Was learning cursive really necessary?

- Lol has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to say".

- Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart", all I hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart".

- How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?

- Every time I have to spell a word over the phone using 'as in' examples, I will undoubtedly draw a blank and sound like a complete idiot. Today I had to spell my boss's last name to an attorney and said "Yes that's G as in...(10 second lapse)..ummm...Goonies" (I would say Yep that's P as in..........Pnuemonia)

- While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart.

- MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

- Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

-Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

-I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

- I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

- "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this ever.

-I hate being the one with the remote in a room full of people watching TV. There's so much pressure. 'I love this show, but will they judge me if I keep it on? I bet everyone is wishing we weren't watching this. It's only a matter of time before they all get up and leave the room. Will we still be friends after this?'

-I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Dang it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?

- I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

-I like all of the music in my iTunes, except when it's on shuffle, then I like about one in every fifteen songs in my iTunes.

-Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

-I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

-Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I’d bet you anything that everyone can find and push the Snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time every time...

Christmas came... and went!

Well, here are some pictures from Christmas. I finally got around to posting them. These are before I started feeling nasty, even though I still wasn't feeling great. Not fun getting sick on Christmas Day (but getting the stomach flu anytime sucks!). Here we getting our traditional pj's on Christmas Eve.
Here is the tree after Santa came:
Bryn finding some of her toys.

Justin got some new shoes.

Bryn had fun opening her presents this year, although if there were clothes she immediately threw them behind her.
Because he always gets lost!!
Yay, Dora!!
So we were all spoiled. Justin got me a couple video games that I like (Midnight Club and Cruis'n) and some movies. We got 2 new Guitar Hero games, 5 and Smash Hits so that will be fun to play through those. And I can't believe it will be 2010. My 10 year high school reunion will be next year! Man am I old. Anyways Happy New Year, y que 2010 sea mejor para todos!

A whole lotta stuff

Ok, so here is the pictoral evidence of our trip to Disneyland. A longer version is in the works, so this is just a few pictures and more will be coming. This is us in the car after the long drive to Anaheim, CA.
This is Bryn meeting Mickey. She wasn't sure of him at first and then finally decided he was ok enough to high five.
This is in Minnie's house, Bryn loved to turn the nob and watch the dishes get washed.
This a picture we took by the castle. That is us standing out on the bridge and I thought it was a cool silhouette shot.
Justin and Bryn riding a dolphin at CA adventure. Bryn loved it and had fun there.
This is me going by myself on a ride called Maliboomer. It shoots you from here (ground level) up over a thousand feet really fast and then lets you freefall down and then back up from about halfway. It was sooooooo fun, I couldn't believe that no one else would go on it with me. (I got to sit next to some Spanish hunk though). And this is a cute picture I took of Brynlyn in the bugs life area, she had a blast there and it was the least crowded area so we walked onto all the little rides. It was nice.
And finally this is the hawk that landed in our yard before we left. It was hurt and I called 5 people before someone said they could help it and would come get it. When we got home it was gone and I didn't see a ton of feathers so I am assuming that it either flew off or someone came and got it. It was a Cooper's Hawk, we looked it up online.

Ok, a longer version will be coming, enjoy the preview!

Last weekend we went to Winterhaven in Tucson which if you don't know what that is it's a neighborhood where all the houses go all out with lights and then you go and walk around and it is cold but so pretty! Here are a few pictures from this time.

What a goofball!
And here is Bryn looking so excited to be there. She actually loved it. They have these horse-drawn carriage things going around and she kept yelling horsey when they came by and she loved the lights. It was a fun time.

Feeling crafty

Every Christmas I want to decorate more but I never do. This year I made some things! Yay. I painted the sign on our door and put tons of glitter on it. Glitter makes everything better (but next time I will buy something pre-painted - this took me 2 hours and I had to stand up so that Bryn couldn't get her grubby little fingers on it!). And I made this wreath out of stuff from the dollar store and it cost less than $5. I think it turned out pretty cute for being so dang cheap!
And this is an idea that I saw on Martha Stewart and then I modified it a little. It is an advent calendar, which for those who don't know (like my husband and I had to explain it 5 times before he got it) is a countdown to Christmas. Each number is actually the lid to some paper mache boxes that I got at Hobby Lobby and then glittered. Then I glued some magnets to the backs and stuck them to a magnetic dry erase board. You open a box a day (on Dec 1st you open the "1" box, on the second you open the "2" box and so on). You fill them with little toys, candy, a scripture or something fun. I loved these when I was little. Every day I was so excited to open the next box and find what was in there. So I made my own. This wasn't so cheap of a project but it will last for years. I feel so crafty!
I am then going to glitter the edge of the dry erase board and for the rest of the year it can be a sparkly edition to Bryn's bedroom door.
