This past week I went skiing at a resort called Loveland in Colorado. All I have to say is OMG it’s so awesome. And after my past skiing experiences, that’s saying something!!! (Read my past skiing posts to understand why) This place made me love to ski. Like seriously if I lived near some slopes, I’d be out there every day. I met some awesome people there this past week too....
I Pulled a Pepa
In this world, there are many people who are extremely trusting. They believe whatever you tell them- no questions asked. I am the complete opposite. I usually EXPECT sarcasm when you may be perfectly serious (unless I really know you, of course). This trait, although useful at times, can also cause some awkward moments in life. [Although this is a short story, I found it random and funny,...
Auto Correct Strikes Again
This is a true story. On my local news channel this morning, they reported a school going on lock down for several hours after receiving reports via text that a gunman was on his or her way. Long story short, the iPhone auto correct feature changed the last name of a person to “gunman”. All I have to say is wow.
Do you know any good Presbyterian churches around here? I left my directory at...– Everybody Loves Raymond. A conversation between Amy’s parents (the MacDoogles) and Frank and Marie Barone concerning Easter.
Probably about three weeks ago, I had one of the worst days of my life. It really started the night before. I was dog and house sitting for my pastor and his wife. They are the proud owners of a giant black schnauzer by the name of Lola. Now don’t get me wrong, she is one of the sweetest dogs you’ll ever meet. But I did not know that she was not supposed to drink any water after...
The Theater Beckons
I live in what can only be classified as Small Town, USA. It’s one of those places where everyone knows everyone and you can’t marry anyone within a forty mile radius lest you discover you’re long lost cousins. In my beloved little town, the community has, over the years, tried repeatedly to put together plays in effort to give everyone some form of entertainment, lest the town...
Can't Win for Losing
Over the last two years, I have went through some of the worst cell phone experiences of my life. I had owned one of the first Blackberry curves that came out before AT&T realized how much money they could make off requiring data plans for all smart phones. Because I had had the phone in my possession before the tyrant that is AT&T instilled this rule, I was not required to purchase a...
When I was a little girl, the mother of some friends of mine used to fix all our hair using a technique she called “alien head”. Alien head involves wetting your hair and twisting it up in little knobs and sleeping on it over night. When you took it down the next morning, you had beautiful curls and all you had to do was spritz them with hairspray. I decided I would try this technique...
The Violin, part 3
For an aspiring violinist with no teacher, I was making ok progress. But it wasnt very long before I hit yet another bump in the road. I had been watching videos a woman was posting on YouTube for instruction. She was obviously an instructor for small children, for instead of teaching about eighth and sixteenth notes, we learned phrases such as “huckleberry pancake” and “wish I...
She and Amy had had many lively skirmishes in the course of their lives, for...– Little Women. Reminds me of me and my little sister growing up, lol.

Wonder who was the first person to have the novel idea of smiling in pictures? If you notice, hardly anyone smiles in old pictures.
The Violin- Part 2
My first night with my violin wasn’t terrible. Before it’s arrival I had been watching videos and reading about them so I felt somewhat prepared. I ran in the door and opened the case. Then I noticed something. My “bona fide maple” violin felt an awful lot like plastic to me. I tried to tell myself that it was probably just the varnish or something but my gut was telling...
The Violin- Part 1
Here recently I decided I was going to teach myself the violin. All of you musicians out there know how difficult it is to learn to play this beautiful instrument. My first mistake occurred when I randomly decided to look on eBay. I was in shock when I saw violins for as low as fifty dollars. Excitement welled up within me when I thought I was going to learn something worthwhile for almost...

Gotta Have a Fix
Wow, whoever wrote this review must stalk me. The reason I say this is because of the following line taken from the article is so me: “Yes, full and touchscreen smart phones might be the trend right now, but that doesn’t mean text and email maniacs aren’t still looking for ways to get their fix…. So if you’re in the market for a smartphone, and you feel it necessary...
For all you fantasy lovers out there, I just would like you, for a moment to consider how epic this would be: Brandon Sanderson team up with Chris Nolan. Sanderson writes the script. Nolan directs it. One word for you. Awesome.

Angela made a faint noise in her throat. "How else were you planning to proceed? With blaring trumpets and shouting heralds? Really."
Revenge of the Gadget
Probably one of my favorite commercials on television right now is the Allstate Mayhem GPS commercial. Besides it being down right hilarious, I have lived a similar scenario. When I was 13, my family and I loaded up the car to go to Kentucky. At my grandparents’ bidding, we borrowed their GPS. It was nothing special, just a small screen that sat on the dashboard, but it obviously thought...

A New York cab driver takes pictures of things he sees in the city. Pretty awesome!
Where I live, everyone knows that Booksamillion is where all the creepers come out from their shadowy corners on the earth and converge. Several years ago, my family and I had to run by there (this was before we had Barnes and Noble as an option) because my mom had a few gifts there that she wanted to pick up. While waiting on mom, I decided to browse all the various books. You as the reader...
Christmas plays. Every kid has to endure them at some point in their life. I never got the privilege of being Mary. Usually I was a shepherd or some other character. And if you are best friends with the choir director’s daughter, then you automatically prepare to be in them every year. When I was nine years old, I was assigned the role of being an angel. I attend a small church and so,...
Quit Playing, Buddy
Ever accidentally entered someone’s number wrong in your phone? I have. Probably about three years ago, a good friend of mine gave me his old Blackberry Curve (this was before the greedy corporation that is AT&T started charging for media packages). I had been using a little rinky-dink flip phone, so my Blackberry was quite an upgrade (even now that I own an iPhone I still prefer the...
Wasting Away in Clayton
For those who read part three of my skiing blog, you know I was planning on journeying to Colorado to go skiing. It seems, however, the universe had other plans for us. Our trip was something akin to National Lampoon’s Vacation, where the Griswalds loaded up to go to Wally World, only to find it closed. The total group consisted of 27 people, but we were broken up into two groups. We set...
