Can you hear the bells? 5 days my wonderful friend Tawney is getting married to the awesome Matt (yes, that is now your official title)

I still can't wrap my head around it.

She's getting married. She's getting married.

I'm so thrilled for her but I don't think the reality of the situation with become clear to me until the wedding day, when she leaves the ceremony hand-in-hand with her husband under a shower of flower petals.

I love her dearly and pray that God blesses her and Matt's marriage. That through hard times they will be stronger than ever and overflowing with love for one another and God.

I am so happy that she wants to share this life-altering and momentous occasion with me. I am so honored to be in the wedding as a bridesmaid. I'm afraid I'm going to trip and fall... yikes!!

<3 ya Tawney and i guess you're cool, Matt. lol

I'm back.

I realize that I have been M.I.A the last few months but believe when i say for good reason.

It may be a lame reason but it is good.


If you know me, school somewhat consumes me. I have been buried this semester and you'd like I'd be getting excellent

In all but one of my classes I am passing with flying colors, ray of sunshine and explosions of confetti. class with a not so stellar grade could kill any hoop-la. And lucky me, its the one class I need to get into CSU Fullerton.

Which by the way I got waitlisted....

This whole semester, nay, year has been such an experience. I say that in a dry sarcastic and ironic tone.

It really has been experience, truly. Sigh, if only you knew and if I had the time, patience and space to tell you.

God has been good to me and that is all.

More to come though, just want to say I am back because I miss this.
I came to posting so many times but decided to invest my time elsewhere. Tonight is a lucky night because I refuse to sleep and chose to preoccupy myself with a little bit of facebook, pandora, delicious website surfing and-to top it off-blogging.

Where is the love?

Everyone desires passion. Whether in love, life, or in things they enjoy to do.

I want it. My life lacks passion. I real passion, a fervor, fire, breathe.

I want people to look at my life, examine, observe. And have it be obvious.

Let there be no shadow of a doubt, disbelief, question.

I want that.

I want it to consume, control, envelop my every being.
I want it to seep, pour, ooze from every part of me.

Passion is what I ask for. yearn for, desire for, pursue and hunger for.

Of fire & rain

The weather has been turbulent in recent days and I love it.
The cold sting of the wind, the beat of rain on my face and neck. It thrills me.
Rain is one of my favorite things.
People either hate it or love it. And I can honestly confess that I love it.

Think of the first rain of the season.
The earth seems to beg for it and rejoice when it comes. I feel like everything around me becomes excited when the first drops fall. The rain gives back life.
That's what I love about it.
The day after a good rain is glorious to me as well.
The sky has been washed clean, the soil is rich and colors seem to explode.
The world is vibrant and breathes clear.

There's nothing like a good rain.

Party's over folks

My holidays were a amazing! How was your's?

My sister Vanessa from Austin, Tx and her boyfriend Ryan flew out and have been staying with us. My brother Ben drove from Calabasas, my aunt fmor Washington made her way down and my cousin Meryl from Las Vegas came out.

I love having all of the family together.

My uncle and his fiance came as well with her daughter, Bri. And of course, in tow, was baby cousin Brooklyn Nicole who will be able to join in the festivities as soon as she's born in February. It was the first time I saw Kelly since she found out she was pregnant and she's just about ready to have Brooklyn. Just a little bit longer to wait. I'm so excited.

AS we do every year, my family did secret santa and white elephant gifts. We actually, didn't have a typical Christmas this year. We celebrate the 29th instead of the traditional 25th.
Why you ask? My aunt and my cousin from Vegas coudn't make it out till then and because they were a part of the Secret Santa we had to wait for them. I didn't mind at all. It felt like Christmas all the same.

Unfortunately I have no pictures to share....poo. I didn't have my camera on hand. But I found some pictures on the gifts I got.

Ryan was my secret santa and boy did he spoil me.

He got me a Lauren-Vintage Hobo clutch

a lovely Round About Roxy scarf
And I got a ton of Bare Minerals eye make up from Ryan. So pretty. love them <3

School started today. I'm taking an online math class for winter session. yay....

ta-ta for now loveys

Holy Geez...

Is it already the end of the semester?


I have five finals this week
monday- Intro to journalism final
Geology lecture
Tuesday-Geology lab
Wednesday- Political Science(American Goverment) paper is due
Friday- Mass media final

sweet yea? NOT

I want this week to be over and done!
After this week though, the crazy does not end.
Saturday- work, go to house of location for bridal shower ( I helped plan a bridal shower for my Tawney whos getting married in May) try on bridemaid dress, bake for bridal shower
Sunday- work, get food for bridal shower, set up for bridal shower, bridal shower, clean after shower, then church)

I think it would be nice being a planner for parties and such. Planning the bridal shower was actually kinda fun! It was funny that I ended up doing it cause Im not the maid of honor. But she goes to school in Washinton and it seemed logical to ask the other bridesmaid who is local (me).
I deisigned the invites, planned a menu, making two desserts for the shower and am doing a veggie tray.

I dont want to do the normal veggie tray, I want to try somethign different. any suggestions?

OK.....write now I should be studying for tomorrow mornings final but here I am wasting precious brain cramming time!

Ta-da my dears!
