random ramblings.


If the title of this post didn't warn you, this is a very random post about a bunch of different things on my mind as of late haha

I know I am late in the game but what can I say, I had the hardest semester I had ever had in school... but I finally read the Hunger Games! I read it in ONE day, haha. I can't wait to start the rest of the them!
P.S. I read the book on the Kindle Trevor's parents got me for graduation. I had always thought Kindles were pretty cool, but never had really thought of getting one for myself or anything. They sure are nifty little things! I love it. This may sound random, but I love reading in bed, and one of my biggest pet peeves is that when I am laying on one side it makes it mucho uncomfortable the way you have to hold the book if it is on the awkward side of the fold.... does that make any sense? Well with the Kindle there are no sides, because there is just the one, so it eliminates that problem right away, I love it! Also.... if you haven't read I get more blind every day, and I love that I can make the text as big as I want too haha :) I am such an old lady already, and I am only 22.

Trevor was sick all last week, and of course while I was taking care of him, I caught it. I had a miserable couple days, with a nasty head cold and the runny eyes and nose. I am not sure if I have talked about my Netti Pot on my blog or not, but if any of you have a stuffy nose due to sickness or even allergies, you HAVE to get a Netti Pot. Here in Utah I get bad allergies in the fall, and the Netti Pot has been my savior! It even works wonders when your sick with a cold. If you haven't tried one, you just need to! Trust me.

Does anyone know what is up with blogger these days? 
First they delete everyone's posts and comments or whatever because of some overdrive, earlier this month. I heard that this week people were having problems logging in and out and making comments. Then yesterday people's follower gadgets were disappearing... mine was just a big white space the other day! &then it came back then it disappeared again, whats up? You can still follow through the tab up above on my blog but blogger, the problems are becoming a little much!
On a happier note I got a pinterest! I am always finding inspiration online that I want to take mental note off, I have literally saved tons of images on my computer at home and work to save the ideas I find. So I love the idea of this online pin board for your creativity! Also being able to look at others and share is great. I have really just started, and have really only created one board so far, but it is so much fun! If you want an invite to join, just email me :)

Here is a kitchen I repined for my For the Home board. 
I love the colors, simplicity, &open shelving... just all of it!


Also, who doesn't love Adele? I have been a big fan of hers for awhile now. They are a lot of singers and entertainers out there who are famous because they have a decent voice or maybe a great voice but are really only famous because they have the whole package, look cute, can dance etc... do you know what I mean?

But every now and again there is someone who is so incredibly talented that they don't even have to try. Adele is one of those people. Her voice can give me goosebumps. Some people can just touch the soul with their voice, and she does that every time for me. Love her.


She will be playing live in Salt Lake City on the 29th.... wish I could be there.

  16. i love to pin:) i have not yet read hunger games but i heard it was so good. im reading water for elephants i heard on a fellow blogger that the book is way good so i picked one up and i only read at night because i have 2 kids. but so far pretty good. a kindle is on my list of things to buy i leave reading in bed.

    ReplyDelete
  17. can i just say that i LOVE the randomness of this post?!

    first, i had no interest in the kindle until you talked about the whole one side thing. I TOTALLY know what you mean about reading in bed and one side being awkward. it drives me nuts! Now I want one. hahahaha just to eliminate that problem. the thing is, i don't like reading on a computer, i'd rather read on a physical page.

    second, blogger has been ridiculous lately. a couple days ago, it wouldn't let me upload any pictures. so weird.

    third, i am emailing you now for an invite to pinterest. i've been hearing so much about it!

You are seriously the 20th plus blog since yesterday that I have thought...hmmm...why have I not seen updates from this person, even though I visit yours on my own daily...well, silly Google Friend Connect appears to have suddenly un-follwed you and apparently most of my favorite blogs, at least everyone so far! Grrrr...well, I'll show it...I'm following again! So sorry...I love you blog and now must catch back up! I hope you are having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!!!

Please please please believe him and do whatever he says. Herb is really the best and probably only cure to herpes. And please don’t be too nice to yourself. Herpes is a serious thing.

One week of not consuming some stuff or the rest of your life with herpes simplex virus. It’s your choice. And trust me, I tried just cutting out cigarettes and alcohol though it wasn’t easy as I’m addicted to smoking and drinking of alcohol. Once I stopped doing both and all of what the doctor instructed me not to do and taking my herb medicine the improvement was magical! I was cured from my genital warts/herpes in two week of using this Herbalist Dr. Kham herb remedy. All in all, thank you doctor! You helped me get my healing and life back. God bless you.
