giving some love.

-i love to give. so so much.
so with Christmas present season upon us not only does it give me a guilt free reason to go shopping but i also get to give away presents. and now that im an "adult" i have to actually buy people in my family presents and not rely on my mom to just sign my name on the card haha. but seriously, ive been blessed beyond any reasoning i can find, i think its something God lets me do. its one of the best feelings to me. right up there with Gods grace and buying a new cell phone.

-also, newest self realization: i love to plan stuff.
im not what i would call a structured person by any means. i tend to play things by ear and dont commit to much in advance. but ya, weekend trips, parties, dinners, whatever, i find it fun.
now i just need to find a way to make a living off it haha

-the end of this semester (and hopefully my school career at rcc) is only a week and a half away. im going to have so much free time after work now i wont know what to do with myself.

-my short stay in Colorado was a good one. my dad, step mom (who's from there), and little brother and sister moved to Mead, Co two years ago from huntington beach. Mead has about the population of 2,000 people. no joke. so as you can imagine it took some adjusting for my dad. not only is the scenery way different but the weather is too.
it snowed on us a little on friday. i being the noob was all gitty about it.
the night i got in they took me to eat at the Meat Cafe in "downtown" mead. downtown = 4 old houses converted into a post office and couple restaurants. it was cute.
i just really wanted to hang out with brett and rory so bad. that was my whole purpose on going on there. brett, boy genius, is all into legos and star wars. i signed them up with a AIM account so we can chat chit whenever. brett is non stop on that thing after school. its amazingly cute and bordering "crap, what did i do?!" to me haha. rory is going to be trouble for my dad when she gets older. little girl has more sass than i thought a 5yr old could.
i took them to the super walmart to go christmas/bday present shopping. brett got star wars lego ships and rory only wanted this puppy that rolls over by itself. i was shocked, i literally told them they can have whatever they want (except a flat screen tv and Brats Dolls) and they picked legos and a stuffed dog! but once rory saw how excited i got over finding an easy-bake-oven, she had to have one.
they seem to be really happy out there though. they own a big nice home, two great jobs that pay them more than their CA ones did, have two dogs, know and hang out with alllll their neighbors (its nothing like out here). my dad says he still has those moments driving to work and sees fields, horses, and a silo and ha has one of those, "oh ya, i live here now" moments.

I'm so proud of you for explicitly banning the Bratz Dolls.
