Good Times

Why does time fly when you are having fun? My mom and sister Gabby came to FL to visit me. I think that we had a good time, definately went by too fast. Hopefully I will see them and the rest of my family soon.
Oh and did anyone hear the shuttle land last night? um yea, not going to tell you my reaction but lets just say that my mom died from laughter for about 30 minutes... is it possible that the space shuttle can land on your roof? Cause thats what I thought, and I'm sure that the 911 dispatcher had a good laugh at me. Ok maybe I will tell you, here is how it went down.
911: what is your emergency?
me:: i think someone is breaking into my house, I heard a big bang and it sounds like someone is on my roof
911: well the space shuttle just landed
me: the space shuttle just landed on my roof?
911: it landed in florida
me: so you can hear the shuttle on your roof from here?
911: yes
me: um ok nevermind false alarm.
I think thats what happens when you work at the PD, you become paranoid!!
ha. funny.
ps- I'm not blonde.

Our fish tank

Not a very good picture, but you get the idea of how enormous this thing is. I have to stop my brain from imagining the 150 gallons of water gushing throughout the floor soaking up every inch of free space. Ecckkk!! Scary image. Hopefully that will never come true.
Oh and we have 2 eels, a grouper and a crab. As soon as we can get the balance of the water and really learn how this thing works we are going to get some nice tropical fish.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

This is my and Tom's first picture of 2008. Better late then never.

Saturday yard work

I got really tired of the crappy looking backyard. So I bought some crotons and some mulch and tried to fix it. I think it looks alot better but you can still tell that my yard is like all weeds. Oh and I'm thinking about getting that little white picket fence border thing, I think it will make it look better and help from the weeds growing. This is the before and after pictures.
Oh and a picture of the other side of the porch. I'm tryin to work on that too.
Next, I'm going to work on the bushes in the front yard.

Oh and me and Tom went and saw Horton Hears a Who last night. That movie was soo cute!! Go and check it out.

feed my addiction

I'm addicted to Starbucks!! Its like the only thing that I want to drink...well aside from sweet tea, green tea, coke, and cranberry juice. Why is that? I only have like 5 beverages that I like to drink. weird?

I was thinking about this as I was at the grocery store today trying to find something else that I might like to drink. They don't make alot of the stuff that I used to drink, like whatever happened to Fruitopia??? that stuff was awesome? Or Mystic!! Which was like it. They have snapple but thats not as good. I just think that I would drink something else if there were more good options out there. So come on beverage makers give us something new besides those crappy vitamin waters and energy drinks!!

Lazy Friday Night

I don't think that my Mom ever made Monkey Bread for dessert, but I just couldn't resist. I didn't even use a recipe this time. I think I can make Monkey Bread with my eyes closed. Yummy!
Here is my little easter decorated table. This is the Buccaneer Build a Bear that I made Tom. His belly is stuffed really full like a football player. Ha!

So as you can tell we are having a lazy Friday night at home. Its raining outside and suppose to get freezing cold tomorrow.


Is anyone watching Big Brother!! I'm like totally addicted to it now, especially since I got Showtime and I can watch the after dark show for like 3 hours a day. ha!
It's pretty weird how Big Brother tells these people what to do in the house and what not to say and stuff, makes me think that they fix the show and stuff.

So who do you want to win??? I'm glad that Allison is gone, I'm kind of hoping that they bring back Amanda just to cause drama in the house.

Oh and I was thinking that I should tryout for the summer show. How awesome woud that be. I need someone to help me create a video to send in.

Nothing much else going on. I'm on the countdown to my Ireland trip. Only 2 months to go. I'm definately excited now cause this time I'm definately going unless the earth crumbles to the ground or something.

Well thank goodness its FRIDAY!! Hope everyone has a good weekend. It's going to be chilly down here! blah to that!

Where I've been in the USA

create your own visited states map
or check out these Google Hacks.

As far as I can remember I have visited 9 states in the US. I know that when I was like 15 or something my family took a road trip up to New York, so I'm thinking that we had to drive through Virginia, and maybe another state that I didn't include? Maybe my mom knows for sure.
Oh and I didn't count Nevada seeing as how I was just at the airport for a layover, so that doesn't really count.
So I have 9 states on my list of visited state. How many are on yours?

Oh and I'm thinking that maybe my friend kelly will go to Minnesota to the Mall of America with me, or maybe take a trip to Seattle cause I really want to go there.
