Meme: 7 Things.

28 01 2008

Alright, last week Devonna tagged me for this meme and I love these things I’m doing it right now.

1. I am pretty bummed right now because the Prophet of my Church died last night and I was with friends with I found out and we sat around the table last night and swapped stories of our most memorable memories of that great man. He lived to be 97 years old and he led our Church in a way that made me so proud to be apart of this wonderful Church. He will definitely be missed by me and by everyone who’s a member of my Church.

2. I’m a girly girl. I love everything girly. I’m a big fan of chick lit, romance, chick flicks and cute purses and wedges.

3. My favorite song right now is Cry For Me by Mario, I don’t know why I just love this song.

4. I sometimes wish that Jake Jagelski would come back to Tree Hill with Jenny.

5. I’m the proud mama of the leading scorer for Brenna’s basketball game this past weekend, WOO HOO BRENNA!

6. I heart Justin Timberlake.

7. I have a crush on Lucas Scott and sometimes his brother, Nathan Scott from One Tree Hill.

There you go, that wasn’t so hard, I don’t think.

I’m going to tag: Anyone who wants to do this.





Why Do YOU Blog?

25 01 2008

I was doing my weekly blog hop this morning on Google Reader when I came across two things, first, Devonna tagged me for the 7 Things Meme, which I promise I’ll have up soon sweets, I do read your blog even though I can’t comment (damn work) but I will get that list up just as soon as I can, I have to think on it though.

Anyway, the second thing I came across was Stacy’s blog over at Stacy’s Place on Earth about why SHE blogs. It got me thinking about this blog and I thought I’d answer her questions here on my blog because I’m thinking about it right now.

What about you – why do you blog?

I started this blog because Izzy had a blog and it was a journal of sorts and figured if it was online and I could type out my entries, I’d get more journaling done so I started one up and never really looked back…until recently.

How long have you been blogging?

I’ve been blogging for just over 2 years now and I don’t think I’ll ever stop…it’s a passion of mine.

Do you ever get tired, and just want to give it up?

Lately, I’ve been thinking of closing down my blog but then I’d go back and read some of my older posts and laugh myself silly and I know in my heart of hearts, I won’t ever be able to completely erase these posts, so I really think I’m here to stay, no matter what the hell I said in my post a few weeks ago.

So really, why do YOU blog?





Busy Beaver…That’s Me.

24 01 2008

It’s week four here at work for whatever period it is and I’ve been up to my eyeballs in closeouts so I haven’t had much time to do much of anything for this blog and for that I apologize. I see that I’ve got some new commenters on this bad boy, so WELCOME!

Hmmm, some news for those of you guys who read this blog and know Gracie, who used to blog at Confessions of a Shopaholic but no longer does, she lives in Australia but she’s HERE WITH ME IN LOS ANGELES right now! We’re having a good time just hanging out and she’s doing the Disneyland thing with Holly this weekend which I’m sure she’ll have fun at so that should be cool for her.

We’ve got so many things planned, like we’re going to catch a showing of Wicked, we’re going to hit up The Getty, a trip to Vegas, Grace is totally doing the whole L.A. tourist thing and so I’m pretty excited to share in some of her experiences here. She’s a fabulous girl and I’m so fortunate that she’s one of my besty’s and that my besty Mulu gets along famously with her, even though Mulu said that Grace made her feel like Resputia (the fat girl from Norbit) because Grace is soooooooo tiny! hehe, she’s so cute.

I’m on my way home right now so I can finally hang out with Grace, she’s been hanging out with my brother’s room mate, Kurt today and my niece Ahbrey so I’m sure she needs some girly conversation soon….haha.

I hope all is well, I didn’t watch all of OTH this week (I know, I’m pissed too!) but I’m hoping that it’ll be online sometime soon before Tuesday because I wanna see what happened and what I missed! I missed October Road too, I just couldn’t catch a break with my shows this week, work has got me so exhausted by the time I get home, I have no energy left for tv…I even missed American Idol, BLAH!

Hopefully this weekend will help me recoup for next week’s work week! I’ll be back soon with more updates and fun things, I miss blogging…so yeah, do the damn thing and have a good one guys!

Hugs,
Rowena





Has Anyone Watched This Little Kid?

17 01 2008

I have two nieces who are in high school and they are into some pretty weird stuff, I tell ya. Like, I know all about their fascination with YouTube, I can even appreciate their addiction to YouTube because, I’m the same way….if there’s something that I wanna see again, something I want to catch (a new YouTube hot shot musician or singer singing something really cool) that I missed or just looking up old stuff, you can find it all on YouTube.

But, there’s a world of difference in what I’m watching on YouTube and what they’re watching on YouTube.

Check it out:

This is what I watch on YouTube:

This guy’s name is Chris Wong and he can get down on the ukulele and I am really digging this song.

Now, this is what my nieces watch every week on YouTube:

This kid’s name is Ryan Higa or whatever and he’s got a bunch of How To video’s and rants on YouTube that are 1) really stupid 2) kinda funny and 3) really stupid. I search YouTube for the latest and greatest youtube singers and tv shows that I’ve missed, my nieces browse through YouTube, trying to find all of these NigaHiga videos.

WTF?





All New One Tree Hill Tonight!

15 01 2008

I cannot wait for One Tree Hill tonight. There’s so much to look forward to with K Fed guest starring and then finding out what kind of drama we can get into with Peyton and Lucas. I can’t wait to see the changes in Nathan, the coming together of Peyton’s new record label and seeing her trying to either sign K Fed or whatever…it’ll also be good to see what Brooke decides to do with her business back home.

And I heard in a comment someone left here that this is One Tree Hill’s last season? Is this true? Oh goodness, I hope not because this is my absolute favorite show.  Does anyone know if this is true or not? I’m gonna research it but I wanted to know if someone knew before I did all the research, cause I’m lazy right now.

But anyway, WOO HOO NEW ONE TREE HILL, WATCH IT!





I’m Up For the Challenge.

15 01 2008

challenge-runner-print-c10278214.jpeg

This past weekend was our Stake Conference and they issued a challenge for each of the members in our Stake to partake of and I’m actually pretty anxious about it. It’s called The Pursuit of Excellence Challenge and it’ll run from January 13th until our next Stake Conference which will be sometime in September, I forget the actual date.

There are 5 different aspects of this challenge.

1) Spiritual.
2) Intellectual.
3) Physical.
4) Service.
5) Provident Living.

My goals for the first aspect are to: Read my Book of Mormon on a regular basis and to actually finish it before September. To study from my Preach my Gospel manual and to attend Church each and every Sunday. I’ll be out of town for two of the weekends that I know of this year, but I since I’ll be going to Vegas, I’ll just have my sister find me a Church out there so that I can attend still.

My goals for the second aspect are to: Improve upon the blogs that I have, since they are my hobbies, I’m going to put more efforts into my team blogs, The Boob Tube and Book Binge. I will also be reading up on web design and photography since those are hobbies that I’d like to take up as well.

My goals for the third aspect are: To stay on the healthy diet that I’m on right now and to develop an exercise program that I can do every week…I’m doing okay so far in this but I could always step things up a bit, which I intend to do.

My goals for the fourth aspect are: To better serve my family and friends. To offer my services when they’re needed. I intend to maximize my calling as the Relief Society Secretary and do all that I can to assist my RS President, which happens to be my besty, Mulu.

My goals for the fifth aspect is: To pay a full tithe this year. I didn’t do too good in this last year and I met with my Bishop last year for my tithing settlement and I realized how selfish I’ve been so, I am going to commit to paying a full tithe this year and to also get some debts paid off and a budget set firmly in place for me and Brenna’s future. I need to do more on this because it’s only me and Brenna, I need to make sure that we’re all taken care of.

I’m pretty excited about this and I know that I will falter from my course from time to time but I sure as heck hope that I stick this out and see it through…

..wish me luck guys!





October Road- Spelling It Out.

15 01 2008

lead.jpg

Having missed last week’s episode, I didn’t know last night that I was supposed to be hating Hannah but right now, I do. I didn’t care to see what I saw in the beginning of last night’s episode where she basically calls Janet a liar and then basically chooses Big Cat over Janet.

Why on earth would anyone choose Big Cat over their best friend? I mean, seriously…Big Cat is a slimy piece of crap and why can everyone see this but Hannah? And what is sooo good about Hannah that everyone is hung up on her? I mean, I think Allison is prettier than Hannah is and she’s not as popular as Hannah is.

I heart Sam, I really do but I don’t like seeing him getting all closey close with Big Cat.  And did I see right and that Ikey works for Big Cat now? Holy wow…say it aint so.  What is up with Ikey anyway? I saw that he’s still hoping and wishing that Owen will take him back but it doesn’t look like thats going to happen anytime soon and seriously, I’m starting to want to punch Owen in his big fat head.

His character is just so annoying, before I used to tolerate him because he was Nick’s friend but now I just can’t stand him.  I don’t like seeing him on the screen and I always busy myself waiting for him to go off so that I can pay attention again.  I don’t know what it is about him, but there’s something…blech.  And it’s not his size, I don’t care about that, it’s just his personality …it’s annoying.

Like The General, I want him out of the house too.  Other people, I want out of the house is Aubrey.  I know she looks like she’s doing something shady and as much as I want her to be doing something shady, like cheating on Nick, I don’t think she is. Dangit and I want her to be cheating on him so effing bad but I just don’t see it…whatever she’s lying about, it’s totally on the up and up.

I like seeing The General with his little girly girlfriend.  It was funny how excited the whole town got about  the spelling bee and how they were rootin’ on one of their own.

My favorite part of this episode was of course, Janet and Eddie.  I thought Janet was just too cute when she was worried about Eddie and how they haven’t been intimate yet.  I loved how eager she was for it all to go down and I loved how she wanted that cheesy music to play in the background while she was getting her freak on with Eddie.  I loved how Eddie took what she wanted and made it fun and not awkward at all because you could totally tell that Janet was scared to actually be doing the work.   Eddie’s worries about not wanting to do it with Janet was too frickin’ cute.  Because he really liked her and he didn’t want to lose what they had, I loved how the morning after, he took another potential awkward situation and he made it better and kissed all of her worries away.

Goodness, I LOVE EDDIE LUTEKKA but dude…will they hurry the heck up and tell us who Sam’s Daddy is…who’s thinking Eddie is the father? And if he ends up being Sam’s father, I’m going to be so pissed off because she didn’t tell Janet.  Is Hannah going to tell Janet that Eddie is the father or that Nick is the father?  What the heck is the big ol’ secret that Eddie and Hannah are keeping?

The whole Nick and Hannah scene was a bit anti climatic  because when I saw them together in a scene last night with Hannah going to the business to find Eddie, Hannah annoyed me more than anything..she just annoys the snot out of me any hot dang way so let’s see if I forgive her  as the season plays out or what because right now…I don’t want her for Nick, right now she’s not good enough for her because she’s got the taint business going on with frickin’ Big Cat and nothing on God’s green Earth will make me like his stupid good for nothing punk a word!

Next week should be interesting to see what happens…I hope that Nick breaks up with Aubrey  because even though she’s young and pretty, for some reason I can’t like her for Nick and it’s funny because I don’t even like Hannah for Nick.  Nick needs to find someone different, someone better.

Hmm, like me.

HA!

Until next week…what were you guys thoughts on last night’s October Road?
