Day 9 - Put your iPod on shuffle, first 10 songs & Day 10 - Something you're afraid of

Alright, so I understand that I'm a slacker. I have an excuse though! School is finishing up and there are stresses that come along with that, like big projects that need to be turned in. Due to those big mother projects, I have not had time to Blog, but I have a bit of time right now, so I'm back :)

1st 10 Songs:

1. Play Something Country - Brooks & Dunn
2. Summertime - Kenny Chesney
3. Where'd You Go - Fort Minor
4. Dreaming With A Broken Heart - John Mayer
5. Bleeding Love - Leona Lewis
6 .Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses
7. Pump It - Black Eyed Peas
8. You Belong With Me - Taylor Swift
9. Buy U A Drank - T-Pain
10. Give A Little Bit - SuperTramp

As you can tell, I like all kinds of music!! :) hahaha

Something I'm Afraid Of:

I'm kind of terrified of big dogs. I saw someone kind of getting attacked one time and ever since then, dogs are NOT my best friends.

I'm scared of deep water and no lifejacket. I could be boating all day in a lake going tubing, wake boarding, whatever..but the second that life jacket gets taken off, I panic.

For some reason I get scared that I'm not going to be able to have my own children. I have no idea if this will be the case or not, since I am on B.C. right now, but I want to be able to experience that whole birth scene.

Nothing freaks me out more than gators. I've talked about it with my husband before and he told me that there are gators EVERYWHERE in Florida, and that when people go wake boarding in some bodies of water down there, they better hope the boat comes around fast enough if they fall, or they may get freaking eaten alive. I have no idea why anybody would go do that..but that's just me. I live nowhere near gators, yet they scare the heck outta me! I actually start panicking just thinking about them, so I'm done writing about this. :) haha

That's pretty much all I am afraid of!

Day 8 - A place you've traveled to

I have been to quite a few small places. I've been to many states around the U.S. and I've been to a few different provinces in Canada. My favorite places I've been to are Mazatlan Mexico and Laie Hawaii. My family owns a condo in Mexico, so we usually go there most often. A beautiful free place to stay. You can't beat that, ever!!

Here is a picture of their place:

I just got back from that glorious building in March and I'm missing it like crazy. I love the sun. Thank goodness I am going to Hawaii in like 3 weeks or something! Wooo.

Day 7 - Favorite movies

Alright, so I have to be honest and say that I am not a HUGE movie freak. I am serious when I say I don't feel like I have seen too many movies in my life because I just fall asleep when they are on!! If I'm not being active and physically doing something to keep my attention than it is hard for me to stay awake. I'm so bad that I fall asleep in movie theaters as well. I know, I lamme. Anyways, from what I HAVE seen, these are my favorites:

I LOVE how to lose a guy in 10 days. It's probably one of my all time favs. I think it's hilarious how they are both playing each other the whole time. It's just an all around GREAT show!

I also love The Notebook. I have to admit that I cry EVERY SINGLE TIME I watch it, but it's such a cute movie! I also think Rachel McAdams is gorgeous and such a good actress!

I am a BIG fan of Iron Man! I honestly thought it was going to be one of the dumbest shows ever because I wasn't sure how I felt about technology/super hero type movies..but it was absolutely awesome! It is definitely one of my favorite shows..which surprised me!

The last movie I am going to include on this list is Zoolander. It is probably the dumbest show I have ever seen and that is why I love it so much. Apparently I have a dumb sense of humor too, to be able to enjoy this movie so much! Ben Stiller is the man :)

Of course I am also a little kid and appreciate cartoons. I love Happy Feet, The Incredibles, All of the Disney Princess movies, Finding Nemo, Madigascar 1 and 2 and many more!

Day 6 - A song that makes you cry

Alright, so there are many things that make me cry. I never really used to show too much emotion but ever since I have got married the flood gates seem to be a lot more open than usual when it comes to certain topics.

A song that has always made me cry is called "His Hands." This song just testifies to me how my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ loves me so much. I just cannot imagine going through what he did. I am so thankful for his atoning sacrifice, that my mistakes can be forgiven of due to his selflessness. Here is the song:

Another song that makes me cry is "You're Gonna Miss This" By Trace Adkins. It gets me thinking of my life and how sometimes I tend to wish it away, in a sense. I am always looking forward to the future and wanting to move on with my life. I think I just need to breathe, take a few steps back, and be thankful and enjoy every step that I take in life.

Day 5 - Pictures of things that make ME happy

I'm a slacker. I know. But I am still blogging!!
Anyway, I am on Day 5 now and I am really excited about this day. I love looking back at pictures, especially ones that bring a smile to my face. Here are the pictures that make ME happy:

This is Natey and I the night that we got engaged in Hawaii. This night obviously makes me happy because it was the night that started the rest of my forever.

This picture makes me happy because it is the first time that I got to meet my beautiful niece, who is now over 2 years old! I also love this pic because all of the girls in the fam are together!

I don't know why this picture makes me laugh, because it shouldn't. Nothing like getting crapped on by the Little Miss Brookey herself. Haha :) Love ya B.

This picture makes me happy because we are clearly happy in this picture! I don't remember what we were doing other than shootin' the tube and having a GREAT time!

I get REALLY happy when my cute husband leaves me billions of sticky notes around the house telling me how great I am. He really knows when I need to hear things like that and he always knows how to brighten up my day. <3

This picture that I made makes me almost pee my pants. Is that Austin Powers, or is it my Dad?? :) hahaha.

I love my dad and the huge loser that he is :) Here is a picture of him giving Ronald McDonald a wet willy..and this picture makes me happy :) haha

This picture makes me laugh really hard because of the shorts Nate was trying on. It also makes me laugh because this picture was taken almost a year ago and just the other day Nate told me that the biggest regret of his life was not buying them! Haha.

This cheesy girl makes me happy..hahaha

Chocolate Explosions from Boston Pizza can always brighten up my day.

This picture makes me seriously laugh so hard I cry. Dupe told Jonzie not to buy an expensive jug thing for the condo in Mexico. Dupe then went to the bank leaving Lorda, Jonzie and I at this store by ourselves. As you can see through the window, the dude is carrying the big jug down due to Jonzie's purchase after Dupe left. Hahaha. Underneath is Jonzies reaction to her SWEET NEW DECORATIONNNN. If only I could zoom in and show you just her face. What a loser. hahahahha

This picture also makes me happy. I was just minding my own business floatin' the lazy river when all of a sudden my mother came up behind me and flipped me off. Hahha. Can you see her laughing in the background?? :P

This day was one of my favorites. I had so much fun jumping into that huge leaf pile under me! Thinking of this day makes me happy!!

This is the last picture that I will be putting up here today. This picture makes me happy because I am with the man I love. He is such a great guy and I am so lucky to have him for myself! I love you babe!

I am a happy person. I love to laugh and have a great time with the people I love.

Day 4 - Something you're looking forward to

So, there are a few things that I am looking forward to right now.

# 1 - Getting my house re-sided. Someone decided to graffiti my house a while back and so the insurance is going to give us the money to re-side our house. All we have to do is pay a $500 deductible! Hopefully the weather starts to warm up so that we can get on it! I just can't wait to take away that ugly powder blue color and put up a nice brown. Oh the joys of the simple things in life.

# 2 - Nate and I are going to Hawaii with his side of the family when this semester ends. I CAN'T WAIT! For all of you who know me really well, you know that I love the sun! It will be a nice trip to celebrate the end of the semester. Unfortunately I have a summer semester waiting at home for me when I arrive. What a lucky girl I am. :)

# 3 - The last thing I am looking forward to is that life change that I have been longing for. In a year from the end of this semester, Nate and I will be graduating. We can't wait to start the next chapter in our lives, together. I am just looking forward to not being in school and starting a family. Also the full-time job pay sounds a little nice as well :) I know that I will miss these days of my life and everyone involved in them, so I am still enjoying my life as I take it day by day. I love the people who I associate with on a day to day basis, so I guess it makes it easier to enjoy school a little bit. Ha

Those are just a few things of many that I am looking forward too! Life is great. Enjoy it. :)

Day 3 - Your siblings and parents

So, this is probably the best subject for me. I am a HUGE family person. I love being with my family because we are the best of friends and we always laugh when we are together.

To start things off, I am going to talk about my parents.
Here is a beautiful picture of my Mom and Dad:
These two mean everything to me. They truly are the best parents that anyone could ever ask for. They are supportive of any righteous decisions that Nate and I decide to make. They let Nate and I live our lives. They know along the way that we might make a few mistakes, but this life is all about learning. They always have great advice to give, but I love the fact that they refrain from giving us the advice unless we ask for it. They are extremely loving. I just love to be around my parents because we always have such an amazing time when we're together. My mom is extremely selfless. Growing up my Mom always made sure that Kendra (my sister) and I had everything we needed and wanted before she met her own needs and wants. She was the peacemaker in the home. I really don't remember my mom ever raising her voice at us kids. She always seemed so calm to me and I love that about her. She is still this way today! She knows how to go with the flow. My mom is such an inspiration to me. I hope that one day I can be as good of a mom as she is. She is easy to talk to about anything and is always willing to help me out in times of need. She has such a great sense of humor as well. She's always laughing and making others around her enjoy their life. My dad is a great man as well. I remember going on basketball trips with him and just having so much fun. He is a crack-up and that's what I love about him! You can't take this man seriously unless a certain facial expression is present..when you see that certain face you know it's time to stop whatever you're doing. There is this one memory I have of him dancing to Usher's "Yeah" in our hotel room on one of my tourny's in Seattle. Nothing like walking out of the bathroom and seeing your white dad try to dance like a black man. :) He just has such a great sense of humor and I hope that when I grow up I can continue on his path. He is so much fun to play games with as well! He is the man I get to thank for being so competitive! At an early age I learnt that you play to win, and that was that. He taught me his strategy to every single game and still to this day we LOVE to game together. My parents are pretty much my best friends and I would never have it any other way. I love you guys!

Now it's time for my sister, brother-in-law, and little niece Brookey. Here is a beautiful picture of their cute little family, which is about to expand:
I love my sister and her family! They are so cute and so much fun to be around. My sister and I have been one of each other's best friends for as long as I can remember. She is a beautiful person on the inside and out. We can make each other laugh like it's nobody else's business. I remember the good old days when she used to pull my hair (that was her only defense), but luckily we grew out of that early on. I could not ask for a better sister. She is always concerned about how I am doing and she makes me feel so loved. I love being involved in her life. When we get together we love to game, bake, and just laugh. It's fun to try new recipes when we are together! It's easier to be creative with someone else than by yourself, so that's what I love about her! Even though we don't live close, we still find that special time to skype with each other to see what's going on in each other's world. I love skype. I don't know what I would do if I couldn't see my family all of the time through that wonderful technology! Anyways, we have the BEST times when we are together and I love when Nate and I get to visit them. Kale, her husband, is a heck of a lot of fun himself. He always wants to be on the go because he likes having fun and keeping busy. It makes for fun experiences because we are always trying something new! Thanks for spicing up our lives Kale :) Now to talk about my favorite little girl in the whole wide world. (I'm about to have 2 favorites because another baby girl is being born this April, so I can't wait to keep being the best Auntie alive!) Anyways, I love my little miss B. She is the CUTEST girl I have ever seen. She has such an attitude that Auntie loves because this auntie doesn't have to deal with it. Mommy does. She is just over 2 years old and she is such a hoot! She talks amazingly well, and it is just so fun to be able to communicate with something so small and precious. I love playing games with her when we get to visit and I just love making her laugh and smile. She means the world to me. I can never get enough of my cute little princess!

Well, there is is for my amazing parents and siblings. I love you guys and always remember that you mean the world to me. Love, Kels <3
