It's all HGTV's fault

I want this:

or this:

or this:
And I blame it all on the only channel we get at our apartment...

Don't get me wrong, having roommates is tons of fun... but I want my own room again, and a backyard, and a cute kitchen.... sigh. Needless to say, HGTV has not been helping!

Which is which?

One night, Jenni and I were way too bored and sat on WalMart's floor for probably half an hour gazing at the numerous different colors of nail polish. Anytime I found a color I liked, Jenni would think it was ugly and vise versa, so we made a little wager. We would each pick out a color for the other person that the other person doesn't normally wear. So Jenni picked a dark brownish purple for me and I chose a fluorescent orangey-pink for her. We both hated the colors we were given, but now we've had time to adjust. Jenni has warmed up to her fun, summer toe nails, and I've gotten used to my nearly gothic, but still kinda cute, toenails. Special, huh?
So moral of the story, Jenni and me have way too much time on our hands.

Saying goodbye

The image above is just an illustration. I googled "wisdom tooth" and seriously regreted it as several gory pictures of blood and guaze and hands in rubber gloves flashed before my eyes. So Mom, in case you ever read my blog, the above picture is for you because I know you would never read my blog again if I used any of those pictures I saw. (my mom has this cool face that she makes whenever I mention anything gross about teeth - it involves scrunching up her face as tight as she can while still managing to make "ewwww yuck blehhhh" sounds; she's rather talented, ya know) Anywho, back to the point of this post - 06 days and counting till I get those dear wisdom teeth removed from my mouth. I didn't realize how fond of my teeth I was until I realized I had to get them out. Or maybe I'm not really fond of them at all, maybe I'm just not fond of surgery... regardless, I'm not looking forward to it. I've heard too many horror stories... so if I don't ever post again on this blog... you all know what happened to me.
So, here's to hoping I have enough wisdom saved up in my brain that when I get these little guys removed, I can still survive without 'em! Cheers!

My new favorite thing...

Meet the everything bagel. I was grocery shopping the other day and I decided on a whim to venture from my safe zone - plain bagels - and try something different. WOW are they good!! As much as I love my plain bagels with rasberry cream cheese (which has been a staple in my diet lately), the everything bagel is soo yummy and I'm so glad to have tried something new!

This one's for Lyndee

Since Lyndee was so adamant about me making a new post, I caved to the peer pressure... and now she's off to Australia and won't even be able to appreciate my blogging for 3 whole weeks!

Well I sure feel old these days... I go to WalMart and see all these older teenagers and wonder why I don't know them (it's a small town, you know pretty much everyone). Then I realize it's because they're probably still in high school, but I'm NOT anymore. Has it really been two years since I graduated? Did I really just finish two years of college?? I am OLD! Growing up is so weird... it seems to always surprise me when I realize how much I have grown up, and yet I still have a lot of growing up left (just ask Jenni - she gets quite flustered at how childish I am...or how childish she makes me act; it's all her fault of course). I've been reflecting a lot lately on my time in Thatcher, especially the last year. I know it is my time to go, but it's so sad to leave. I've met so many amazing people here and I've had the time of my life. The past year was the BEST...the craziest, hardest, most awesome and fun year of my life. I met some awesome new people and strenghthed many friendships I already had. I will miss how good we had it here.... it will never be the same.
