mattie caboosetry

This is Matlin. How beautiful is she?!

matlin is probably one of my worst enemies. but she's also definitely my best friend! Isn't that how it works with little sisters? She had her 14th birthday last week and she was in Utah while I was workin at home sooooo I didn't get to celebrate it with her. My parents did withhold her presents from her until we got here last night though.. poor girl. But I was excited to be able to be there while we sort of celebrated with her! Let me just tell you a little bit about Matlin.
She can dance. She's quite the little performer. That girl can move. She absolutely SPARKLES on stage and anyone that has seen her dance will agree with that I'm sure.
She can swim. Big whoop right? Ya well Mattie was in swim club a couple summers back and pretty much placed first, easily, in any and every event she entered. She can even do the butterfly and she's hecka good at it. She was in swim club when Michael Phelps was in the Olympics so I thought she was gonna be the next Michael Phelps haha.
She is artistic. She is super super good at drawing and painting and she can paint nails really well too! She's super creative and I am just so jealous of it.
She can play sports like nobody's business. She plays volleyball, basketball, and badminton. She would probably kick trash at rugby if she played. She also plays softball. She'll most definitely be showin me up next weekend in the family tournament, no question.
Sports sidenote that I think you should know.. The reason my family has been in Utah was because Jimmer Fredette was doing a basketball camp. Matlin got to go to it and it sounds like she had a GREAT time! So on Matlin's birthday, Jimmer didn't show up. The day after her birthday she went up to Jimmer and said, "You weren't here yesterday and it was my birthday so can you sign this?" then she handed him a jersey for him to sign. He said he couldn't sign it because then he'd have to sign everyone's stuff. Buttttt after that he kinda kept watchin Matlin as she went back to practicing and such. Her group started to play speed and Jimmer snuck in behind Matlin. She didn't know about it for a bit and my dad got her face on video when she realized that he was behind her. He played with his left hand for a while and then it ended up that Matlin and Jimmer were the last two in this game of speed and she was so close to beating him! Then after he beat her he high fived her and everything. Cooooool right? Ya I thought so. Awesome birthday present. Oh and Camrie even got to talk to him like twice and he even pulled her outside with him so he could sign something for her without the other kids seeing. Ahhhh I wish I could have been there!
She is absolutely and completely, hands down the funniest person I know. She never ceases to make me laugh. If you haven't yet witnessed her hilariousness go to my facebook and look at her birthday present for me. Miss Guacamole. Gets me eeeevvverry time!

Matlin and I have grown a lot closer the last few years and even though we still fight a lot, I love her to death. I actually like our cat fights with the pulling hair and playing tug of war with our clothes cuz its just funny to look back and laugh at how ridiculous we were! I'm glad that we've got so close. I love how we can spend time together and not kill each other and that we are actually friends now haha. I love how she wants to do my hair and my nails. I quite enjoy it. I am lovin seein her grow up even though she is taller than me now... happy birthday. and might possibly have bigger boobs. cheap! haha oh well. I still love her regardless.

Now. A collage of pictures of Matlin and I today :) haha
I love this girl!

sometimes I feel a need to be distracted.. what better way to do it than reading? Really though. Reading provides the perfect distraction for me. I get so caught up in books that I read that I can't put them down and then they consume my thoughts for a good 2 days after I've read them, or at least until I start my next book, which is usually just a couple hours after the last. Call me a nerd. I don't care. All I know is that I'm just seconds away from starting this beauty
Harry Potter 4 babay!

and I plan on being MIA for a little while. At least until I get so excited about this book that I just have to share some of the excitement with the blogging universe.

missing you

Last night I went to Thunder in the Valley. I believe it was my fourth time in a row? Amongst a rainstorm soaking us to the bone, ruining my cream toms, and the only other girl with us having monthly traumas (so I had to be the one to help her out haha but I'm sure she would have done the same for me.. we actually ended up asking strangers for sweats and surprise surprise, the white trash campers came prepared to help us out thank goodness) it ended up being a pretty good night. I've only ever been to fireworks with a boy once but that was years ago and wasn't even that good.. we didn't even kiss. That's ok though I guess.. But last night I couldn't help but think, 'I wish Parker was here. I want to share this with him.' I feel like nothing is as fun as it could be because my other half isn't with me.. Is that how I'm always gonna feel these next two years? Answer that for me would ya?

Missing someone isnt about how long its been since youve seen them last or the amount of time since youve talked. Its about that very moment when youre doing something and you wish that they were right there with you.' -Unknown

I love my job

Is it weird that I love my job so much? Probably not considering the fact that all I do is read all day. I used to be afraid of talking to people and such but working at big scoop last summer helped me get over that a little bit.. I still get a little jolt of nervousness every time people come in though. I'm just scared that someone is gonna ask me a question that I don't know the answer to or something and I'm gonna look like an idiot and they'll think that I am an 'incompetent slime ball' or something along those lines anyway. To the point of this post though. People ask me funny questions sometimes. Usually Americans..
For example:

Guess what people. Parker David is here at last :) He arrived Saturday night at about 2:30ish am. I waited up. How the fetch was I supposed to sleep when I knew he'd be rollin into Cardston at any minute? Plus, I had tv to catch up on such as So you think you can dance-Wednesday and Thursdays episodes, Pretty little Liars, and some good ol' King of Queens. Then I get the text telling me that he was in town. I jumped up off the couch and asked craig, 'Where's the keys?! Where's the keys?!' He gave em to me and I was off. I have to admit I was driving much too fast in town but it was 3 in the morning.. no one was gonna be out. So then I get to his grandparents house and slammed my lil car into park after a terrible parking job, jumped outta the car and pretty much smothered him. That was one of the best hugs I've ever gotten. He's a good hugger. So I just kinda hung around for about a half hour then decided that since I worked at 8:30 the next morning and that it was pretty much 5 am his time that it was probably best that we both go to bed. We said goodbye. Maybe smooched a little. I went to bed with a smile on my face that night and will probably continue to do so while Parker is here.
