Alright Flo Rida, I supported you when you were looking for some apple bottom jeans and desired to get low, when her lips where like sugar, and even when you decided to have your head spin right round but I think you have crossed some lines with you new song which you totally adapted off a series of lines from anchorman! I mean seriously "I'm gonna send this thought your way and if you don't like it send it back my way but i just got to say i want to be on you" I think we all remember that little meeting with Veronica Corningstone how could you figure we forgot or wouldn't notice?!

turning 21... or 5...

Tuesday was my big 21 and in an effort to avoid all maturity i packed up and headed to Disneyland!!!!!! best decision ever!!! Sunday after church I packed up the jeep ( the bug was broken and so no air conditioning woot woot!) and drove down the coast landing in SLO in the late afternoon, everyone hung out had dinner and i watched Mat help Greg move in (I was apparently too weak) we all crashed early that night and the next morning me and Katie made my birthday cake! It was beyond epic in appearance and taste!
neon food coloring made all the difference!

Then we packed up Katie's car ( yay air conditioning!!! and hybrid gas millage) and headed down to San Diego to stay at Scott's house. Our car ride was full of chippotle, nineties music, and silly conversation who could ask for anything more!! we got down there at 10:20 and hurried to get to bed! after a restless night (too much excitement!) we all got up and got ready and drove north towards Disney magic!on our way down

we got there at 9 30, sun screened up, and headed for California adventure!! Mat had never been in that park and we hit all the best rides! We started with the new toy story ride in which you compete on all these games where everyone schooled me but i sucked at duck hunt so thats easy too imagine... then we did California screamin, that horrific ferris wheel, Muppet's 3D ( I'm so muppet obsessed its scary), tower of terror, and finished up with soarin!!! it was fantastic but the best was yet to comewe're really just goofs

Disney magic = fake backdrop?

There is nothing like the walk into Disneyland to awaken the child in you and we did space mountain, haunted mansion, Indiana Jones, small world, the jungle cruise, pirates of the Caribbean, the Alice in wonderland ride, small world, the tikki room where we ate my beloved dole whip! and watched the fireworks over the castle it was amazing!!! at around 10:30 we left the park and said goodbye to Scott and me mat and Katie piled back in her car and headed to SLO we stopped for in and out and the bathroom a couple times but other than that it was a strait shot! Katie beyond the beyond awesome person she is drove the entire way back while Mat and I attempted to trade off sleeping ( neither of us are as strong as Katie) we made it back at 3:30 and crashed! I'm not sure I have ever been so tired!Dole whip!!!

the gang waiting for fireworks!

I woke up the next morning ate some more birthday cake, packed up, and drove back home, getting back just in time to figure out what i have to do for house sitting and have a half hour break before work! It was such a jam packed few days but worth every second!!!

some a summer

Sorry to be such a lame blogger over this summer but apparently I'm easily distracted... Anyways here is the quick update on the events in my life over the past monthish...

So Aubrey got married as many of you witnessed and have already read about so the beginning of my summer was filled with family coming into town and last minute wedding prep and amazing wonderful times with jaicy my fourth sister!!! we rushed about town talked late at night, she tackled me for my phone, you know all the good stuff!! It was so much fun hanging out with her and Kelly's fam for a week!!!
Then came the wedding!! It was beautiful every little detail was perfectly mastered we laughed and cried and danced the night away! Aubrey looked so gorgeous and she and Phil could not of been happier! I'm so blessed to have such a wonderful sister and to have gained such a great big brother!
I loved spending time with family and friends and ended the night with my feet in the swimming pool, aloe on my sunburned back, shoving chocolate raspberry wedding cake into my mouth with my cousin and family could there be a better finale!
Then came the fourth of July Mat came up for the weekend with Katie and the family did the parade thing as usual and in an wondrous turn of events have inherited all these kids through aubs marriage and got to spend that time with them! Its so great to be with kids and experience those things through there eyes! they are so excited and appreciate it all so fully! we spent the rest of the day with the Greenan clan swimming, playing baseball ( yes I played in fact got a base hit even though Mat totally let me and wont admit it :) ) and watching the fireworks! o and did i mention enjoying this American flag cake me and Katie and mat made!!! I'm shamelessly proud of that but all in all an amazing weekend

Then last weekend I went down to San Luis for the weekend to visit Mat and Katie and Nick! We went to a concert where Sherwood was totally beyond awesome! spent time on the beach had some bbq fun caught up with my RA friends and me and Mat went on our first actual date! It was so much fun and totally us my car battery died while we were out and we had to change our plans a few times but we smiled our way through it and mat got to feel really heroic jumping my car so I couldn't ask for a better time :)

Those are the weekend highlights at least! and during the week I'm spending my time working for this lovely family...watching those two beyond gorgeous children!! seriously I am the luckiest girl in the world!!!
