the day my macbook died.

Twas a sad day indeed.
I won't lie, I cried.
I'm currently in a love/hate relationship with pockets and ipods at the moment.
For they have destroyed my life.

Anyone willing to donate to the buy Alex a new laptop group is more than welcome.

Just go home tonight and kiss your little computer. And hug it. And tell he/she how much you love him/her. You'll be sad when the day comes that you no longer can do that.

Rest In Peace, Clarice.

welcome to terrgit.

I promise you that Maddi and I aren't completely childish.

Today after bread making we ventured over to Target to have ourselves some fun. Remember that lil' bombshell from VS I told you about? You can check it out here. Anywho. Maddi had seen a wannabe one at Target, so we just had to go compare. 

Speaking from experience, if I were to buy one of those ridiculously padded bras, I'd definitely have to go with the one from Vickie's. The one from Target just doesn't do justice. Although, Melski, the one at Target was purple leopard print. We thought it would make a nice friend for Zeebs. 

After the bras, we headed on over to the shoes where Mad broke the clearance sign. Then I told her that I was sick of hiding my secret: I was pregnant and we needed to go check out the car seats. That's when she told me her secret: "I thought you were getting fat." hahah. We scoured through all the baby stuff, and even tried out the breast pumps.

Then we went to the toys and played with every toy possible, especially the ones that made obnoxious noises. We found some JBiebs dolls and loved them immensely. We played the Wii, and checked out some face washes. We even ran into a fart that seemed more like a brick wall than a smell in the air.

Twas a swell day.

Also, 4 more days until this boy is home!!

I can't wait!!

put your panties in my bag.

The original Spring Break plan was to venture to Hawaii. So when our plans fell through, Maddison and I felt as if our hearts were broken. We were at a loss of what to do, and we knew we had to think of something quick. When we were graced with the news that the world's largest Forever 21 and a three-story H&M both opened in Vegas, we knew that was our solution. 

Tuesday morning we piled into Schnid's car {.. well. Given as much piling you can do with two people, that's what we did.} And headed on down the road. And, believe it or not, I drove. I know, I know. Please, hold the applause. Let me remind you that this is the girl who was forced to get her license, and has to prepare herself weeks in advance just to drive to Hurricane or Cedar. Needless to say I was pretty proud of myself.

Yes, my eyes were on the road.

The drive was pretty uneventful. We had some good talking, and a major soul-sesh with the Biebs. Twas solid. When we finally arrived at the Fashion Show Mall our stomachs were screaming at us. We snapped a few quick pics to show how each of us looked on the drive down, and then continued on to get ourselves some lunch.

This is Maddi with Mags. Mona wasn't feeling up to the trip.
And this was me, clutching the steering wheel for dear life, hoping to make it alive.

When we finally made it inside, Maddi decided that she really needed to go to the bathroom. We came up out of red parking {We parked in Red J7.. we had to remember it by saying that Maddi's favorite color is red, and that her birthday is January 7th. It really is January 7th.. so that helped quite a bit.} When we came up the escalator, we were trying to figure out where the nearest bathroom was. We knew there were restrooms by the food court, and since we were headed that way anyway we'd go down there. Now, if you've ever been in the FSM then you know that the floors are extremely confusing. After going up and down a few levels and walking the entire length of the mall, we realized that the food court was at the other end.. right where we came up from the underground parking. It was pretty funny. Here's Maddi being all distraught from not being able to find the bathroom.. {sorry it's blurry}

We got ourselves some lunch which, by the way, as quite a hard decision. We finally settled for Subway, where the lady who made our sandwiches totally skimped on the olives. I'm pretty sure Maddi only got 3 and a half on her sandwich.. no joke. While we were eating Maddi got hit on by multiple men, one of them being a Justin Bieber lookalike. I told her she was lucky for hanging out with her ugly friend that day, because obviously she was getting a whole lot of attention.

After lunch we continued on to the real reason we were there... Forever 21. When we rounded the corner and saw it I almost peed my pants. It's seriously gigantic.

 If you can't tell, I was super duper excited.

The next four hours were those of pure bliss. Yes, you read that correctly. Four hours. That's how long we spent there. We'd only made it through about 1/4th of the top floor.. so an 1/8th of the entire 2 floor monstrosity, and this is what Maddi looked like. Her arms were gonna fall off. 

Melissa, these next two pictures we took for you. There was an entire room filled with sea baby apparel. 
We thought you'd be proud.

After our four hours in F21, we made our purchases and headed over to find out what Victoria's secret really is. And I do believe we found it. They have a new line of delicious smelling lotions. Maddi had a different lotion/perfume on each hand and each arm. She was beginning to give me a headache. ha! Plus, when we first walked in we were given these cutie little bows that smelled like their newest fragrance.

These were our favorite:

And I bought this one. It's heavenly.
As we were meandering through the store, we were asked only about a billion times if we wanted to see what size our breasteses (say it like Tra-cay.. if you don't know what I'm talking about, what the video at the bottom.) We finally caved in and decided to try out the bombshell.
ohmahgosh. Let me tell you. The claim to fame with this bra is that it adds 2 cup sizes, and that it does. The padding on it is seriously probably 3.5 inches thick. It is ridonculous. 

After we tried those on, we decided to check out the panties. We found some super classy ones.

Here is where the title of this post comes from. I promise that it wasn't completely random. One of the sales associates kept following us around, offering us a shopping bag even though we weren't buying anything. When I started picking some things out to buy, she handed Maddi a bag. I kept holding onto my things while she carried around an empty shopping bag. I refused to give her my panties, until she hissed at me "Put your panties in my bag!" It was really quite funny.

After that we did a clothing change and continued on down the strip to Caesar's Palace to go visit the gigantic H&M. I don't really feel like blogging anymore. So I'll just give you some pics.

When I came around the corner I found her bonding this this lamp horse:

This little baby gelato cost us like.. 6 doll hairs.

Then we drove home and jammed to the Biebs. And stopped like twelve hundred times so I could go pee.

Picture overload? Yes. I'm sorry.

Mr. and Mrs.

Yesterday my wonderful brother Jeff married Val. I'm so happy for the two of them. It was an extremely fun filled day. Definitely one of the most fun weddings I've ever been to. Unfortunately I did a horrible job of taking pictures. So I'll share the few that I did.

This is Dylan. He's my older brother. Not the one that got married. But he's hilarious. And I love him mucho.
This is Jen. One of Val's bridesmaids. Dylan was her escort, and they were stinking hilarious together.
Schnid was making goofy faces.
This was their first dance. Doesn't she look so gorgeous? And he looks so handsome in his military stuff.
Somebody was cat-calling. ha!
While they were dancing I looked over and saw Dylan making creepy faces at me.
Then I went and got this little mister. We pretty much tore up the dance floor. ha! It was great. I wish I would have gotten some vids/pics of my brothers dancing... they were the greatest ever.

Anyway. That's it. I'm pretty bugged with myself that I didn't get more pictures. Oh well. Also, I totally could have caught the bouquet. But I refuse to be the next one married. So when it was like 5 inches from my open hands I took a step back and let somebody else catch it. Sometimes you just have to sacrifice those things.

It was a great wedding and I'm so happy for them. I cried a bit more than I should have. Jeff is leaving in just over a month for Iraq/Afghanistan. So seeing him in his military get up was a bit much for my little heart to handle. But I know that everything is going to be fine and swell, and I'm so excited to see where they go in life. (: I love them both very much!!

ps.. All the bridesmaids went and got their nails done on friday. I didn't realize that I would be getting acrlyic nails, and let me tell you. I'm about to go crazy. You see, I'm a nail biter, so this isn't working for me. I've had them for 3 days, and this is what they look like:
I've cut off both my thumbs because they make texting impossible. And 2 more fingers on my left hand. The rest are about to go, because I'm going insane. It's taken me about an hour longer than it should have to type this post, because I can't type worth carp with them on. So if you're a nail biter, I highly suggest not getting them.

that is all.

Hey, Melski..

..You're gonna be so proud. I did my makeup all by myself for Jeff's wedding. I was stressing that you weren't here. But then I succeeded. Miss you. (:

confidence: soaring

Last night I was told I looked like a man.

Tonight I was told I smelled like a dog.
Which was then quickly covered by "... like flowers in the mountain!" 
{I really didn't smell like a dog.. honestly.}

It's easy to see that my confidence has been boosted ten fold.

For reasons unknown, I seem to have an odd obsession with anything mythical and/or weird. I don't know when my love for narwhals began, but when it did it struck hard. Kind of how the j-biebs-fiev took over the world, or how the Black Plague seized Europe.

Anyway. I received a letter from Brad.. err.. Elder Dorius on Friday. He asked me how work was, and if I had any new animal knowledge to share with him. Conveniently enough I was working at the moment, so I went and pulled out one of our giant books filled with random facts and pictures of just about any animal you could imagine. As I was flipping through the pages trying to find something awesome, I was greeted with an image similar to this:
I almost peed my pants. I had absolutely no idea that they were real. All this time I had simply imagined them as wonderful whales with unicorn horns, swimming through the ocean having a jolly good time. Completely imaginary. I figured that somebody had dreamt them up, and spread their idea with the world. And that the world had accepted their creation, and loved them as much as I did. But nope. They're real. 

I was so shocked that I had to text Mary and ask her if she knew they were real. {She shares the same infinite love that I do.} Thankfully I wasn't alone, for she thought that they were mythical creatures as well. As our conversation continued, we came to the conclusion that both unicorns and dragons had to be real as well, which is when we decided we're going to become narwhal/unicorn/dragon hunters. We're going to travel the world/possibly the galaxy in search of them. If you feel that you want to join, just let either of us know. We'd be glad to include you.

After I texted Mary, I had to text Scott and ask if he knew. I don't know what made me think to text him. I guess somewhere in my heart knew that he loved them as well. When I shared my shocking news with him, this is the message I received: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH. I felt slightly stupid.. apparently people actually knew that they existed. He informed me that he did a report on them in like, first grade. Ok, not really first grade. I don't know when. But still. Who the freak actually knows that they exist?!

*Sigh* oh! I want to clarify with all of you narwhal lovers out there: Their horns aren't actually horns growing out of their heads. They're tusks.. it's their one and only tooth. {Now that I've got the nerd part of this post out of the way we'll continue..}

But yeah. I hope that you feel as if everything you ever knew about this world has been shattered. Because that's how I felt when I first discovered it. 

I want to be this guy's friend:

And just for good measure, this video had to be included. Every time I hear the world narwhal this is what comes into my head. Props go to Mary and her roommate Jess for introducing it to me. I hope you enjoy it.

 Go ahead. Hate me. I would if I were you, seeing as I've posted 3 times in the last 2 days. Twice today. That's obnoxious. I'm sorry. I'll try to not let it happen again. Now that I've gotten my apology out, I hope you can forgive me to read a lil' bit further.

So yesterday I went to the eye doctor to order mahself some contacts and glasses. I've decided to revert back to the colored guys. I'm kinda dreading the "ohmahgoshisthatyourrealeyecolor?" questions. My all time favorite is "Are your eyes real?" uh... last time I checked they were. ha! It should be grand. 

Anyway! So the cute little miss who was helping me try on glasses was such a doll. I kind of had in my mind a pretty good idea of what style of glasses I wanted to get, but I was trying some other kinds on for good measure. She led me to the ladies section, where we looked and chatted, yadda yadda. She stopped me mid sentence and said "come over here.. your face is kinda small." I followed her across the room to the.. wait for it.. "tweeners" section. Her eyes got real wide and she said "I promise it's not a reflection of your maturity level or anything! I just think you might find a pair here that you'll like." I had to laugh because it was too funny. The first pair she had me try on was one that she had been lusting after for quite some time. "I'm going to be so jealous of you if these fit. I've wanted them forever, but they don't make them in adult size, and I they're too small for me." I tried them on. Fit like a glove. I'm 90% sure I saw a flash of envy through her eyes. I gave a nervous laugh as I slid them off my face and returned them to their home. 

After a few more pair, I may or may not have let it slipped that I love J.Biebs. She brought me over a pair of what she referred to as the "Justin Bieber glasses." I tried them on and fell in love.

They were great. But as much as I loved them, I had to opt out, for fear of accusations of being a poser. I ended up getting some super cutie ones. I don't remember if they're brown or black.. I believe brown. But they're basically awesome. I can't wait until they come so I can show ya'll what they look like. They make me look kinda geeky.. but it's whatev. Maybe I'll embrace my dork-side. Create a new me. I think it should be splendid. 

Anyways. {Say that like Miranda.} I hope you're all having a splendid Tuesday. And if you don't know who Miranda is, watch that video down at the bottom. I felt like her Baby video was fitting for this post. I think she'll be you're new best friend. Peace and blessings.

Also. Happy Birthday Justin!! that is all.

Miss New Booty.

If you've read this blog for any amount of time, then you might remember when I talked about my math class last semester. Remember Armold and Hottie-Tottie? If not, you can check it out here.

Anyway. What I'm attempting to get at is that this semester is about a thousand times more hilarious than last semester ever was. So I have decided that I'm going to start a mini series. It's going to be called I Go To College. Slash IGTC for short. I'm not sure how long it will be. So you can just keep your little eyes on the lookout for that. It's gon' be grand. Hopefully you'll enjoy it. I think I'm just mainly doing it so I'll have something to blog about. mmhm. It'll be goodie.
