Fun, Fun, Fun.

13 11 2007

I had a really good weekend. It was three days of doing whatever I wanted and it was heavenly. Friday night, was Jarred’s League Championship game against my old high school and I felt like such a traitorous b word because I sat on Torrance High’s side and cheered for them to win against my alma mater because I wanted this win so much for Jarred. It’s his senior year and Torrance hasn’t won a championship since 1990, so 17 years later they finally got their Championship. Next year, I’ll go back to cheering on North! =) Jarred did really good, some great tackles, made some big plays and helped his team come out on top, I was very impressed and it was so cute to see all of my brothers jumping up and down cheering Jarred on. My brother Henry almost lost his voice he was cheering so loud.

He’s so cute. Henry is so looking forward to being able to watch his new bundle of joy, Brody play football and it’s so cute to watch how excited he is about having a son. He’s so goofy, it’s adorable.

After the game, the family went to McDonalds to feed the kids and we stayed up late, talking and just hanging out. Saturday morning came too soon and at 8am, we were all at the park, cheering Cheridan’s team on while they battled to beat Daylene’s team…too bad they lost and poor Beargrills (is that the guy’s name from Man vs. Wild, Cheridan’s coach looks EXACTLY like him, LOL), he’s a good soccer coach but he can’t get his team to win for beans. LOL. After Cheridan’s game, Brenna played…that girl is a born defender because she was positioned as a forward but she never played her position, she was always defending instead of attacking the ball to score…it was horrible. She won her game though, 5-1 so it was all good in the hood…the only thing that sucked is that we played the exact same team we played last week and the same ref called our game too. What the heezie? Oh well, another win for us. After Brenna’s game was Chay Chay’s game, she lost her game too and then it was Makenna and Chase’s game. Chase lost his game but Makenna won hers. And then me, Chloe and Chelsea had to work the closing shift at the snack bar and that was fun…yeah right.

After we left the park, we met Blanche, Delene and the kids over at Henry’s house because the kids wanted to meet their new cousin, Brody. It was a good time, the whole family turned out and we ate dinner, laughed, played cards (and I got spanked at Animal and Spoons by the lying, cheating bastard that is my brother, Pete) …Jarred brought his girlfriend over to meet the family and she’s a cute itty bitty little thing and she’s very nice too. I like her for Jarred so I was happy to meet, Janeen (however you spell her name). We played BS and Pete won that game too, stupid jerk. We also had our family game of dodge ball in the backyard but we had to stop because we kept making the kids cry, so my Mom told us to knock it off and we stopped playing, BLAH!

Chloe and Pete put the music on and the kids ran straight to the dance floor aka the kitchen to get their boogie on and I swear they dance like little strippers…all that was missing for Cheridan’s little dancing was a pole! :eek! My dad wasn’t too happy to see the kids dropping down and getting their eagle on…nor was he too happy to see them getting their Apple bottom Jeans on and crankin’ dat soulja boy! haha, my kids can get down that’s for dang sure…haha, I’m gonna video tape Cheridan dancing and then I’m going to post it on here because that girl can walk it out, crank dat soulja boy and drop them apple bottom jeans, it’s the bomb!

After getting yelled at to keep things down, we had to clean the party up and head home because Mommy Les was tired and we had to go to Church in the morning. So we headed home and I got a text from my friend Maria that she went on a date with a friend of ours from Church, named Rodney….heyyyy, toot dat thang Maria! =) Rodney’s a good guy, I hope they had fun on their little date.

I stayed home from Church on Sunday and watched a few movies which I’ll be putting my reviews up for shortly and then I read Tangled Up In You and Heiress for Hire by Erin McCarty, I enjoyed both books and am reading a very cheesy but good story, Body Check by Deidre Martin. I need some cheese right now, I’m not in the mood to read anything too deep or anything.

I had FHE last night and we wrote letters to those we are thankful for and I wrote a letter to my friends Ayu and Maria. Maria because she needs to realize what an awesome spirit she is and to Ayu because I’ve been thinking about her a lot and I don’t know what that means but maybe my kind words will help her out with whatever she’s got going on right now. I had a good time, and yes today is my birthday….last night, Mulu brought a cupcake cake to FHE and everyone sang happy birthday to me and I was all embarrassed because believe it or not, I don’t like having the attention on me, I’m not an attention getter like Mulu is so I was all red in the face but whatev, it was cool. I had a good time. I went home last night and read some more, texted with my friend, Marivel and with Mulu and then I went to bed.

And I woke up on my birthday morning with a big ol’ cold sore on my mouth, I’m telling you, it was not the business. Ugh! So I’m rushing through everything this morning because I wanted to make sure I wasn’t late for my staff meeting, I didn’t really fix my hair, my clothes are only ironed on the front side and I get to work on time to find out that THE MEETING WAS CANCELLED!!! Oh h to the no, I was pissed…but atleast I brought in the snacks that I bought so that I can stop eating out so much…only to find out that the best friend, Mulu wants to take me to lunch so I’m going to be eating out anyway, LOL.

I want to see Enchanted so bad and I finally found my two peeps that I’ll be going with and I don’t even care that I have to pay for them…Chloe and Chelsea! Although, Im’ going to take Brenna too…maybe we can make it a family thing.

Whatev, so anyway, how was everyone’s weekend?

Another Great Weekend!

29 10 2007

This weekend was pretty cool.

Friday after work, I came home and got Brennigan dressed for the Primary Trunk or Treat at our Home Ward and then Chloe and myself went to Target to grab some stuff and then headed over to the Trunk or Treat to pass out some candy to the Primary kids. There was a good turn out, since we combined with the other two wards that meet in our building. Lots and lots of kids and lots and lots of candy was passed out and eaten. The whole family turnd out with the exception of the boys, Dad and Henry went to watch Jared’s football game against Lawndale and of course, Jared’s team stomped on them because well, I heard Lawndale sucks so good on Jared and the rest of the Tartars. Us girls (me, Blanche and Delene) showed up with Lesley coming with her girls and Mom then not too long after that, Pete and Tiffany showed up and the party train was complete! The kids had a good time, they got too much candy and a good time was had by all.

After the dance, Maria and I went to grab something to eat since it had been ALL DAY since I didn’t eat and then we were sitting there, me pouring my heart out to her while she listened on and offered whatever advice she felt was necessary and then not too long after that, Mulu called and she came, met up with us at McDonalds (you know how us broke people do it!) and then we dropped Maria’s car off at my house and headed to the Inglewood Stake Halloween Dance, which if you asked me was the perfect dance for Polynesian people. They played lots of reggae and lots of hip hop which made for a good time had by all of the Poly’s there. Levi and Aaron weren’t too wild about the lack of other types of music played but we (read that as me and Mulu) loved the music. Every other song, we were looking at eachother, saying, “THIS IS MY SONG!” They played lots of old reggae cuts that we had forgotten about and then they played a lot of cuts that had us groovin’ right along to on the dance floor.

We had a good time hanging and dancing with the peeps from our Branch and it was good that we got a group to go to show support for the Inglewood Stake, so hopefully they’ll return the favor at our dance this coming Wednesday…DJ’s McShorty Shorts say that they’ll be tearing it up so I hope they bring it because a lot of hype has been made about these guys, I hope they don’t let us down.

After the dance, Mulu, Maria and myself went to get a bite to eat for Mulu (Maria and I weren’t hungry) and we hung out, chatting while I texted unsuccessfully with The Boy and wondered over that. I went to bed thinking about the Boy and wondering what’s going on with him.

Saturday was another Saturday spent at the park. Makenna had the early game this weekend, she played at 9:30 and she tied her game and then after her game, Cheridan played against Brennigan’s team. Brenna’s team was winning the game, 3-0 until the 4th quarter. Coach Oscar put Brenna in as goalie (a first time at that) and Brenna let two goals slip through, she had a really good block, one that surprised the heck out of me but there were too many girls for her to keep track of (don’t ask me what happened to her defenders, I have no idea, it was Brenna against three girls from Cheridan’s team, Cheridan being one of them) and then right before the game ended…Cheridan got the ball and booted the heck out of the ball and scored from outside the goalie box and that ended the game. So we didn’t lose but we didn’t win either which for me was not a big deal but I don’t think the parents on my team was too happy with me for jumping and cheering for Cheridan when she scored the tying goal….but oh well.

After their game, Nathan showed up to the park with his parents to watch his niece’s game which was the game after Brenna’s game. We had a whole conversation with our eyes, it was pretty crazy…Chloe was like, “That’s the second weekend, we saw Nathan at the park and you guys didn’t say anything to each other, what’s wrong with you guys now?” I told her, “Nothing, we talked…just because we didn’t say anything doesn’t mean that we didn’t say anything to each other, we… talked.” And I left it at that and she said, “Ohhhhh, I know…awwww, that’s so cute! I wish I had that.”

I had to wait for Blanche who ran home to get some stuff for Chase and we waited for Pete, Chloe and Kurt to bring lunch back from McDonald’s. Me, Chance and Chase sat on the opposite side of Nathan’s niece’s team and paid little attention to the game while we played…Chase’s tooth came out on the field and he wasn’t too happy with me about that but it was okay because I talked him into being happy about it since the tooth fairy was goign to hook him up with some money and as soon as I said he’d get money for his tooth, he forgot all about being mad at me.

LOL, kids!

Chase won his game, 1-0…with no goals from him and then after his game, we had our last game of the day…Chay Chay’s game, she lost her game, I forget what the score was but her team is the worst of all the teams, I think and her coaches are frickin’ hilarious. But Chay Chay did a good job, she’s a great defender so that was all good in the hood.

I was too tired from the days activities to go out Saturday night so I stayed home, helped clean the house and get the house ready for Halloween night and then this morning, Maria came and picked me up for Church and we were on our way.

I saw Aaron today, things went down with Aaron on Monday and he told me that he wasn’t going to be coming around much because he needs to focus on his calling in his own ward and I was pretty bummed about that since I like hanging out with Aaron but after spending time with him this weekend (at the dance on Friday and then today at Church), I need to stop leading the guy on. I’m not digging him the way that I am, Nathan so I just need to leave that one alone. We talked on the phone and then emailed throughout the week and either he’s playing with my emotions or I’m playing with him and either way, it can’t end well so I need to just bust a Keisha Cole and let it go…but, if Aaron was taller and buffer, I would totally date him. Oh yeah and if I wasn’t diggin on Nathan like TLC sings in their song, Diggin’ On You.


I need to pray about this because I need an eternal companion dangit!

Dude, Daphne Rocks My Socks.

4 09 2007

I hung out with Daphne on friday.

We ate at Red Lobster and we had a good time. I confused the heck out of our waiter and myself. I made Daph laugh and we chatted, laughed a lot and just had ourselves a good time. Daphne is a funny girl, like seriously…she’s funny.

She’s always a delight to be around and I’m serious, Daph…we live the closest to each other, we need to hang out more often. We need to have more Borders “Readings” of the naughty sections of the cook books that catch our fancy and we need to watch more movies together like..Hairspray, because I’m so seriously in love with that movie. This remake of the movie was super duper great! And a review of the movie is totally in the works and should be posted soon!

Oh and guess what else?

Daphne met Nathan.

He texted me while we were eating lunch to make sure that I wasn’t drinking because I promised him that I wouldn’t drink anymore (I asked that he promise he wouldn’t do something for me and he said he’d promise if I promised him that I wouldn’t drink anymore) and he knew that I’ve been stressing out about a lot of personal issues that I’ve been going through and he didn’t want me to regret my actions afterward so after he texted me to see if I was okay and to make sure I wasn’t having anything stronger than a Sprite to drink with my lunch, he asked me what me and Daphne were going to do after lunch. I told him the bookstore, which bookstore and then I told him to come through because Daphne wanted to meet him.

He told me he wasn’t looking his best, that he was going to the gym later and was dressed for it. I told him I didn’t care and he said, “Fine, we’re at Jamba Juice right now, we’ll stop by over there…we’ve got Braxton with us.”

I love Braxton and so was glad that he was coming over as well, he’s like one of my favorite people because he’s so funny.

So anyway, while me and Daph are reading through a naughty book, they show up and I was so happy to see him that I was all anxious to introduce him to Daphne. She was so cute about everything, she said nice to meet you and Nathan’s a really quiet guy around people he doesn’t know so he didn’t really say much but I put him and his friends (and my cousin) to work trying to find the one book that me and Daph went over there to look for…the new RG book, they couldn’t find it, I couldn’t find it and so we all gave up.

Daphne and I had made plans to go see Hairspray and so while I tried to get the boys to come with us, Nathan was like, oh hair no! He didn’t want to see it, so I told him that I’d call him later and then Daph and I were off to see our movie!


I hecka loved it and I totally heart Zac Efron because he was such a cutie patootie in Hairspray and was a great Linc. Tracy, or the girl who played Tracy was fantastic as well…I loved Amanda Bynes, she had me laughing a lot in the movie and John Travolta…dude, he was FAB! I loved him!

I kept getting calls from my house while we were in the movies so I called home afterward and was being summoned home because Blanche wanted to go to Jarred (my nephew)’s football game but didn’t want to take the kids so she asked me (quite nicely too) if I could come home and watch the kids while they went to the game…the kids voted and wanted me to watch them so I went home and hung out with my kiddies that night.

Nathan came by to drop off some movies for me to watch and he played with the kids for a little bit. My little Chase likes messing around with Nathan, it’s so funny when they size each other up for the first few minutes in each other’s company…Chase is still trying to “protect” me but he told my brother Pete yesterday that Nate’s a cool guy, he promises! haha, love my little Chase.

I stayed home on Saturday and cleaned the house and then hung out with Chloe and Chelsea that day. I left my wallet in Nathan’s car Friday night (yes he came back after the kids were asleep and we hung out) so I didn’t have anything on me on Saturday so it wasn’t like I could go out but I was glad that I stayed home because I bonded with my two BFF’s (as they call themselves) and I had a talk with them about boys and the upcoming school year, I hope what I told them really gets through because those two are really boy crazy.

I spent the entire day on Sunday with my brother Pete. I woke up with the intention of going to Church but Church started at 11, I woke up and it was almost 10:20am. I didn’t even shower yet and I just knew I was going to be late. I was irritated with Nathan because he didn’t make time to drop my wallet off because he went to Ryan’s house for some party and I had break the fast things that I needed to get. So he comes to my house to bring my wallet and take me to the store, he comes with his sister and it was only a little bit awkward but it was cool.

I like his sister and his sister likes me so it worked out well. We shopped together and I helped his sister out while I sent the boys (Herm was with us) to get the stuff on my list. They dropped me off after the store so that I could make my sauce really fast then they came back and though I was supposed to go with them to drop off my sauce, Pete and Tiffany came to the house so I just went with them and sent Nathan to drop off me and Tita’s sauce for Break the Fast.

I hung out with Pete that whole day and had a blast with my brother. He is such a funny guy, I loved it! He moved into a small house near my work and it’s just the cutest little house ever. He bought a little fire pit and when the sun went down and we were eating our bar b que chicken dinner, he lit the fire and was like a little boyscout, all proud of himself and spent the rest of the night and early morning just poking the fire around, making the flame go higher and higher. It was funny.

I spent my Labor Day with the family at the pool because it was hotter than hell up in Southern California yesterday…it was not the business but being at the pool cooled us down considerably and I had a good time hanging with my family…my brother Henry was calling me Ghost because I haven’t been around the family lately, he looked at his drink and was like, “Damn I must be drinking the good shit because I could’ve sworn I saw Wena sitting next to Fish. That can’t be right.”

And I spent the whole day laughing, playing cards and eating…I was spent last night and when I dropped off last night, I was dead…to the world.

What about you guys? How was your long weekend?

What A Weekend…What A Weekend.

28 08 2007

My weekend was pretty relaxing, or it was supposed to be but turned out to be anything but, relaxing.

Friday night, I had a slumber party planned for the girls in our Singles Branch to just have a girly fest and then organized our Service Project stuff that we needed to get done before next month, sometime. Our Stake is putting together a bunch of School Kits for the poor and we had to make the bags that are going to hold all of the school supplies.

So Friday after work, I rush over to my house to throw some clothes and pack up the stuff I needed to take over to Roro’s house and then I was off to Roro’s house to help her in any way that I could to get the house in order before the girls started arriving. I got to her house a little before 6 and the first of the girls started arriving at about 7ish.

Of the 20 girls that RSVP’d, only about 6 showed up but that didn’t stop us from having a good ol’ time.

We had a blast! We karaoke’d (is that even how you spell it? I’m too lazy to check it so you know what the heck I mean) all night and when I say ALL NIGHT, we really did do that and Mulu once again had everyone in fits of giggles when she sang, Crazy by Patsy Cline and then she had me almost peeing in my pants when she sang Britney Spears’ I’m A Slave For You. Oh goodness, she was her own back up dancer for that one and though I was singing with her, I couldn’t really concentrate because she was making me laugh so hot dang much.

We stayed up way too late (or early since we all went to sleep at about 5 in the morning) and then woke up early to make breakfast and start on the bags, since we had to be up and decent since our Stake Relief Society President was coming by to show us how to do the bags.

So because I can sew worth a damn, I hid in the kitchen with Roro and made the food while Mulu and the others tried their hand at making the bags, which actually turned out really good. We made bags until 6:30pm at night.

I wanted to go to the Stephenie Meyer signing at my local Borders but I was beyond tired and I had Nathan go check it out, since I didn’t have a wristband, I wanted to see if I would be waiting long and since Nathan was on his way back from the beach and he’d be passing the Borders on his way home, I asked him to stop by and see if it’s crowded over there. He called me a little after 5 and was like, “It’s pretty packed over here, what’s going on over here? One of your geeky book conferences?” Then he was like, “Holy crap, is that Whitney right there? And look, it’s Cassie” He saw a bunch of random people from our Church over at Borders because Stephenie Meyer is a member of our Church so a lot of the people from our Church went out to support her, I guess.

After I told the girls (who wanted to go with us to the signing) that Nate said Borders was pretty crowded, we all decided that none of us wanted to go stand in line and so instead of getting dressed, we all stayed in our pajamas, LOL and played Guitar Hero on Cassie’s (the other Cassie) PS2, that game is so much fun! I wanna get it so frickin’ bad! That game is off the hook and if you haven’t played this game, make sure you fix that pronto, this game, I LOVE!

I got home a little after 7 and my happy butt went straight to sleep, I was shaken awake by the shrill noise that is my phone, holy crap is my ringtone really loud, but its my song, Make It Work by Ne Yo, so I wasn’t too mad about it, but man, I was so tired, I checked and saw that I got a text message from Nathan and a voice mail from Daphne. I tried calling Daphne back but I couldn’t hear what she was saying and I was tired so I just hung up and went back to sleep, only to be shaken awake by the same shrill noise a few hours later.

It was Nathan.

He wants to hang out after work, so I need to wake up. I didn’t, of course…I went back to sleep because it was after 11 and then my phone rang again and he was leaving work and on his way to my house, so like the good little girl that I am, I ran a brush through my hair, shook it off my shoulders (it was a good thing, Chelsea straightened my naps for me) threw on the same pair of jeans that I wore to the slumber party and threw a jacket on and thanked my lucky stars it all matched and fell asleep on the couch again waiting for Nathan to get to my house.

I got a call from my cousin Braxton who wanted to know if I was hanging out and I told him, “Yeah, Nathan’s on his way to my house, so get ready, I’m dragging you with me since Chris and Hermy Herm are with him.”

Chris is Nathan’s sisters boyfriend, they both work at the House of Blues and Chris was coming to chill. Hermy Herm is what we call his friend, Herman from Hawaii. Herman is living with Nathan now and we’re all one big happy circle of friends. So, the guys were hungry and they wanted to chill, so I went and chilled with all of the guys…I was the only girl, it was great times for me.


After that, we hung out for awhile and then they took me home. I fell asleep again, texting with Nathan and then fighting over something but I forgot what and then he said that I hung up on him, but I was too tired to care, like Chelsea would say, whatev…=) I didn’t get to sleep until about 4 am. What’s new?

Sunday morning, I had to be up early because Mulu had a meeting at Church and then Tita and B Nice had to sing in Sacrament and they wanted to practice their song so I got my happy butt up at the ungodly hour of 8 o’clock on a weekend and got dressed.

Mulu and Tita came and got me and we went to Church. The girls practiced their song and totally rocked it out because I swear I was in tears, listening to them sing, my favorite song, “Its Real” and then Church started.

It’s funny because there was a guy that got baptized yesterday and he’s been coming to our Branch for awhile now and B Nice comes to our Branch to sing (she’s never been to our Branch before) and it’s such a small world because she knew Rodney, since they work together and she didn’t know he was taking discussions and he didn’t know that she was a member, LOL…poor B Nice is not setting a good example at work, LOL.

Man, I love listening to my friend Tita Boom sing, the girl can blow. B Nice too, and they did such an amazing job singing at Church and then again at the baptism last night. It was the business. I can’t wait to listen to them again.

After Church, Nathan, Herman and I went to lunch. Nathan treated us to L&L’s (it seems to be my staple after Church, since this is the exact same restaurant that me, Mulu and Miah went to lunch after Church last Sunday) and then Miah started calling, because I needed to doing the program. I told Nathan to take me to Compton and he had a fit, because Nathan isn’t liked too well over in Compton so after a bunch of words thrown all over the car and him dragging me to take Braxton something to eat, he finally took me over to Compton, two hours later.


I got the programs done, made Nathan go to the baptism, put him to work and then made him come to Jamba Juice after the baptism (I know, we’re horrible, huh?) so that he can pay for me and Brenna’s Jamba Juice and then after he paid for our Jamba Juice and all of us headed over to Compton, he went home.

I hung out in Compton for a little bit, said my goodbyes to my 2nd Mom who is leaving for Samoa for a couple of weeks and then we all headed out. Roro took me and Brenna home and then I put Brenna to sleep and not too long after I got home, Nathan came and picked me up to hang out some more…

…yeah, I know, lots and lots of hanging out with Nathan, it’s a good and a bad thing but I can’t stop it because I love the company.

But man, I had me a good ol’ time last night….*sigh*
