Awkward Moments

Everyone has them. Everyone loves sharing them. Well, here are my top 5 most awkward/embarrassing moments. Feel free to share one as a comment- we all need a good laugh!

5. After just hanging up the phone with a parent at work and saying "Thanks! Bye!", I quickly answered another incoming call with "Thanks! Bye!" Needless to say, the caller was very confused and quickly said "Wait! Wait! NO!" We both had a laugh, but the rest of the conversation was very short and full of awkward tension. (May 2011)

4. It's a cold, wet morning in Rexburg, Idaho. Of course, I had to have a couple extra bites of my cereal that morning and was running late. Literally- I was running. I was booking it to the door of my building and very excited because the snow was pouring down in buckets. Everyone else must have also enjoyed their breakfasts because a LOT of people were walking by and past me. I was crossing the Taylor quad and all of a sudden, I was in a full splits. I had slipped on a HUGE patch of ice about 20 feet from the door. It was awesome. I kinda just sat there for a minute until a nice young man asked "Umm.. do you need some help?" Of course, being my sarcastic and sassy self, I said "No, I like it down here." Maybe why I never got a date? (February 2007)

3. Walking through the hallway in high school, I was hit in the face with a door. Now, the janitors were nice enough to paint bright yellow door lines of where the door would swing open. But, I was flirting with a guy I like, ignoring the yellow line, and WHAM. Right in the face. The best part, it was my hip Spanish teacher who knew about the crush. Anyways, nothing ever happened between us- probably because my nose always had the smashed look in his eyes. (March 2004)

2. Imagine a beautiful Hawaiian resort packed with families. My sister and I were swimming in the pool along with lots of other kids and teenagers. Yes, we were teenagers. Anyways, I was being a brat and stole goggles from her. BAD idea. She was so mad, and proceeded to chase me out of the pool back to the spot where our parents were lounging, and where I thought I'd be safe. Boy, was I wrong! She then went straight for my swimsuit bottoms and pulled straight down. Yes, my full moon was out for everyone to see. I literally ran away balling my eyes out while everyone in the pool gave me a round of applause. (April 2006)

1. Yes, this takes the cake {ha ha ha} as my most awkward moment.

Seasonal Shelves

I have spent the past few weeks scouring stores and the Internet for some great shelves I could use in my dining area for seasonal decor {in lieu of a fireplace}. I finally settled on these from Target, and I couldn't be happier. They were the perfect size, light weight, and sturdy enough to hold multiple things. With the 4th of July right around the corner, I decided to start off with patriotic decor. I found all these items in the $1.00 section at Target or the sale sections, and spent no more than $3.00 on any item. {blue votive, blue and white marbles, and flags.} The San Diego Temple picture was a recent Etsy purchase and designed just for me, and I couldn't be happier.

Ariga Bamboo

{Girls Camp 2011}
Dear Girls Camp Songs,

If you don't get out of my head, I might just explode. Yep. I've had enough with all your jazzy tunes, repeating choruses, and most importantly, lyrics about finding a nice Mormon boy to marry. It was good while it lasted..... but it's time for you to retire until next year.



P.S. Let's play "Spot the Leader" in the photo above. Could the 4 of us look any younger? :)

Some Good News

{My brothers new kitten Penny. I love her!}
According to my doctor, my cyst appears to be "shrinking". I have another appointment in about six weeks to check up on it again. Thank you all for yours sweet comments, blog &  facebook messages. It is so amazing to me that so many people are sweet enough to care. I love you all! Also, this little kitty seems to make me feel a lot better.

Lemon Lump

There is something the size of a lemon inside me. Nope, it's not a a baby. It's a cyst in my right ovary. And let me tell you something. IT HURTS, a LOT. So, please excuse me for a few days while I rest up and see a specialist to see if it's shrinking or growing. But for reals guys, pray it shrinks, because I can't imagine anything larger in there right now.
