Classes have started have again... *sigh*

And since I don't want to bore you with too many details right now, I will share a video that I absolutely love. It sucks that I didn't know he is coming to my town this Tuesday!!! Oh Jeff Dunham you rock!

And Achmed is awesome.

If you've never heard of him before visit his YouTube page.
See many more awesome vids like this:

{if you get offended easily... well... just warning you... but it really is worth seeing!}

And how are you?

Thank you to all that have stopped by and congratulated me about my passing my classes.

I am very happy right now and have to work hard to finish these last two classes.


Ok. More Jeff Dunham videos to see before sleep.

Have a test tomorrow and need to do good. Good luck to me!

Hope to come by more to my blogs and the blogging world soon...

Have A LOT to update on but just don't seem to have time to do everything I want to.


Until next time dears!

headin' home

Well it's been great!

We've seen the falls lots and even got S.O.A.K.E.D. by them twice!

We've eaten yummy ice cream and taken TONS of pics between my digital camera & my cousins.

I will post more pics once I get home which will probably won't be until after 10 pm tonight. We're halfway home now and going for the long haul.

I'm hoping the video I'm sending w/ this post uploads. It's my cousin Paty signaling a trucker to honk his horn. It's something cool for them to experience since in Ecuador they don't do that. It's pretty funny. ... Well we think so anyway! Haha

It's been a gorgeous two days and I am ever so thankful the weather man was wrong when they said it would rain today!

The skies are a clear blue and it isn't too hot either! Awesome! Perfect summer days to spend on my 'mini' vacation!

It's my only time away from school because I work 12 hrs night shifts for the next 4 days starting tomorrow! Bleh. Haha. Oh well. Need the $$$$$$ so can't complain I have a job.
Ok. Have a good rest of your sun-filled day (unless you are getting the aftermath of Hurricane Bill or other crazy weather).

Take care!

I'm so flippin' happy!

Wanna know why???

Well, if you didn't follow my twitter updates lately:


Now I'm good.

Needed to express my happiness on my lovely blog and to share with any of my lovely followers.

I am now 'celebrating' with my dad and two cousins in Niagra Falls, NY! We already have gone to our hotel room, to the lovely falls, and now we're going to eat.

(Will post pics soon hopefully.)

Hope you are having a lovely Wednesday and see you later!



what great quote for a friday

Well hello!

I just updated my blog and I talked a little bit about what has been goin' on and what has taken

up all my flippin' time!

Of course, I am talking about nursing school!

But I am almost done (one class down, one more to go - this semester anyway) and December cannot come any sooner!

But otherwise I have been ok.
I have yet to show my new look and my new do - how horrible of me I know especially because I asked for help and lovely Marie offered her help by telling me to just do it and it is only hair! It will grow back! So I did end up cutting A LOT of hair off because I sooooo needed it - my hair was starting to look like a nest! Especially after seeing myself on my videotape of skills, my hair was lookin' horrible! Now it is so much easier to style, and lighter, and has some color to make me look alive! haha

Also, like my last post said, my friend did go through something horrible and she has not been returning my calls/texts so I really do hope she is doing ok. I love ya girl!

All in all, everything is going ok - so far. If I could only get my flippin' grades into my gradebook that would be freakin' fantastic so I know what I have to get on my final to be able to pass this darn class. I also have to figure out my nursing GPA because that has to be higher than a 2.5 (thank goodness - because the newcomers have to have it at a 2.7 or higher - sucks to be them!) and right now I believe it is higher than a 2.5 but am not sure if it's exactly a 2.5 or slightly above it, or I am at a 2.7... who knows right now. My overall GPA I think is closer to a 2.9 - 3.0 and that is fine. *phew*

But enough about school. For now....

I wanted to update you on the current "investment", as Kevin would call it, he wants to make. It is pretty big but I think it's a really, REALLY bad idea for him to do this right now. Let's see if I get any responses from you ladies and gents...

Kevin wants to buy a truck. The size of Ford F-150, and a new one no less! (Not really wanting a used one...)

His reason why it is a good idea?
  1. It will help with a future move when we decide to move in together instead of renting a U-Haul.
  2. It will help others, family and friends, by having a bed of a truck to transport things in - just in case.
  3. It will be better in the snow and safer for him to drive to and from work during really crappy weather.
  4. And he also put on a sad puppy face saying "I want a twuck." *sigh* =p

Reasons why I think it is a bad idea for him to make this investment - RIGHT NOW?

  1. We are not moving in together for another 2 years or so, so why do we need a truck?
  2. His brother has a Suburban - why can't we just ask him for help? (selfish of me? maybe... ok yes it is... so sue me... ok don't cuz I have no money!)
  4. His car right now (a Ford Thunderbird) has crappy MPG and having a truck is not gonna make it less expensive to put gas in that baby. A 36 gallon on a F-150? Crazy amount of $$$ will have to be spent to fill that up!
  5. If he wants to trade in his car, and get the $4,500 cash for clunkers, he will have to get a better car with more MPG and an F-150 is NOT in those requirements!
  6. His insurance will be even higher than it is now - again - can't afford it!

So he isn't here to defend himself/make a better case for himself and why he wants his "twuck" but I don't think it is a good idea for him to get a car like that. Maybe - and I say MAYBE - a used truck.

What would be best for him to get is a smaller car, a better MPG car, or a SUV that is a 4-door that he can trade it in for and get his cash for clunkers 'rebate'.

What do you think? Am I being unreasonable? Is he right? Or am I? Am I being too cautious? Or is he being too much in fantasy land to realize he can't afford this?

I wish Suze Orman could talk to him and look at his finances so she could direct him in the right direction... hmmm... anywho...

Please make your comments below and tell me what you think.
Maybe you have inside scoop on cars right now in this crazy economic crisis we are in.

And if you could tell Suze Orman to read all this and give me advice that would be fabulous!

Take care darlings and I'll catch you next time!

Please join me...

In saying a little prayer this morning because one of my best friends just went through a tragic thing last night. I won't say whom but she is a great girl that wish she hadn't gone through all this...{photo via here}

She had a D&C because it was in her fallopian tube.

And she is one of the few ppl that want to have babies so this is very hard on her.

So please keep her in your prayers and thoughts, and the many women, who have to go through this. I feel horrible because I am getting my hair done today and I should be with her... this sucks. I'm just going to leave her be for a few hours before I go over to see her. I really hope she can get pregnant again. She really wants a baby. You have no idea. She's been planning on having a baby for a very, very, very long time and even though this one wasn't exactly planned, it's still a hard thing to go through.

Hun (you know who you are), I am so sorry you had to go through this. I love ya.

OK. I'm gonna go now.


*p.s. if you want to know what I am up to since I can't update this blog as much during the week, follow me on Twitter here. Or just read my latest tweet on the right hand side of this blog. Hope to update on the status of my friend... and more...*

It's been way too long!

Since I haven't posted something in awhile, I just wanted to say a quick HI to the blogging world.

I am in the middle of reading the many many MANY blogs that I love to go to and I just can't express how much I have missed you all!

Even most of you don't know I read your blogs (once in a blue moon) but I do read them ... even without commenting. I love reading and finding out what you have been up to.

What have I been up to you ask?

Well just super busy with school, exams, papers (2 to be exact - due the same week!), videotaping nursing skills, working ... and maybe some girly day with a concert to finish it off. (more about that to come...)

So tomorrow I am going to do something that I have been meaning to do for a few months now:
My poor hair is so bad and I just feel ridiculous that I have not gotten it done since ... early this year...???
So for my style I thought something along the lines of Sandra Bullock's hair:

Or like Kelly Clarkson:

Or like Giuliana Depandi:

Or like Jillian Michaels:

What do you think?

Then for highlights ... hmm. I was thinking more along the lines of golden/blonde highlights this time around because the auburn DID NOTHING for me the last time I got highlights.

Kind of along the lines of Kelly's highlights here:

If you can write and leave a comment on what you think I would greatly appreciate it! I never know what fits my face shape so it is hard to decide how to cut my hair.

We'll see!

But for now, I am going to sleep. Lots to do before my appt. at 2pm! yay!

Hope to update more and more as my list of things to do gets smaller and smaller.
