Blind Date...Should I Quit???

My cousins, Logan and Sydney were so kind to set me up on a blind date last night. Needless to say, he's not "the one". Dinner was nice and I got a FREE MEAL, which I will definitely recommend the shrimp at Applebees - very tasty...sadly that was the only tasty thing that entire two hours (besides Logan and Sydney's company)!!! Now this is funny, but just as we are picking him up Sydney turns around and tells me that he is not very attractive, I was like Thanks. I want everyone to know that I did try to act interested, be friendly etc. but HE DIDN'T EVEN ACT LIKE HE WAS TRYING! I tried to talk to him, to ask him questions, be friendly, and in return I got nothing...maybe an occasional head nod to at least let me know he was some what paying attention to me! The only conversation that went on that whole two hours was between him and Logan. Which was fine with me after I realized that this wasn't going to go anywhere I sat back and enjoyed my very fine and tasty shrimp. Logan and Sydney, thanks for "setting me up" and if you have someone else in store, well...what the heck I'll do it again!

Get Ready Alaska...Cause I'm Coming BACK!

I just applied online for another summer in Alaska - and today I recieved an email back from them telling me they were excited to see that I reapplied, and that they'll be in touch with me after the holidays. YEAH BUDDY! Alaska here I come...Hope you're ready for me again!!!

I'm DONE!!!

As you all know I have been so "busy" reading those Twilight books this past week...I don't know if I should admit this but I finished yesterday at 4:30pm - took six days to read all three. I think I could've finished on Monday but Summer called me and made me go to the gym. PEOPLE - these books are so good, and I just don't know if I can wait until August to find out what happens next. It is however, so nice to be finished with those books they were taking up all my time and thought...Why can't the scriptures be like that?!?! Well Folks, it's back to normal life, and frankly I think I'm glad to be back! I'm finally getting things done around the place and with the Holidays.

I'm in LOVE with a Vampire

Over the summer I saw everyone reading this book, "Twilight". I didn't think much of it, but later when I returned back to Utah I heard more people talking about this book, one in particular my mom. She loves to read, and had read all these books. She told me that I needed to read them but that I had to wait until the semester was over because she said I wouldn't get anything accomplished. OH MY GOSH!!! Yesterday I began reading the first book in the series and didn't do a darn thing except read all day long. I never changed out of my pajamas, I had my phone on silence for most of the day, and I almost forgot to eat! I dang near finished the book but at 11:30pm my head was throbbing and I decided to put the book down with a little less than a hundred pages left! I need to find me an Edward, WOW - he is...I have no words, he just makes my heart beat so fast...OKAY, okay, I know I sound so lame, but if you haven't read this book pick it up and get lost it in. I don't know if I'll be able to start the other books because I guarantee I won't be getting anything accomplished if I do!!! If anyone knows of a single, attractive Vampire give them my number!!! ;).

It Happened....

Today in class I had to give a presentation...let me go back to the begining of the week first??? I have literally lost my mind, and I think I need to be put in an mental institution...I know some of you might think that I should've been in one a long, long time ago. Well, it's finally time! I keep forgetting things, and doing things that just aren't right?!?! One key thing that I forgot today besides the fact that I couldn't remember where I parked and wondered around the parking lot for about ten minutes until I finally found my car!!! It's not even a VERY BIG parking lot!!! to top it off today - I - who always, always remembers to turn their phone to silence totally spaced it and forgot that I even had my phone...until I'm in the middle of class and I'm giving my presentation to all the students and teacher when my beloved cell phone started playing "Last Christmas" by Wham! At first I tried to ignore it, but then everyone started looking around the room waiting for the person to turn the phone wasn't happening! Finally, I broke the looks and said, "I'm so so SORRY - that's my phone???" Then I proceded to explain that I've never ever had this happen to me before and I am so good to always turn my phone off or silence it when I come to class. They really didn't care, and were just like - it happens, continue your presentation. As I continue on there comes another ring and my teacher pipes up and say's, "Sounds like they left you a message?" REALLY!!! How embarrassing?!?! Please make sure you turn your cell phones off!!!

Vegas Baby

I had my Christmas work party last night. It was wonderful as they always are. After dinner we played several rounds of BINGO for 30 prizes. Guess who got a BINGO towards the end...ME!!! Guess what I won! $500.00 dollars to the Bellagio Hotel. Guess who's going to Vegas Baby! I decided it was only fair to take my mom - and so her and I are going to take two nights in March to relax in a luxury suite!!! Yeah - I'm so excited!!!

Thanksgiving and Vegas!

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday this past weekend! It was so fun to hang with family and have lot's of fun! We all went to Cheesecake Factory...and I am still working on my two cheescakes that I bought why there. I love that place!!! I'm so glad to know that SLC finally has one!!! I have posted another slide show of all my pictures from Thanksgiving in Kanarraville, and playing in Vegas! They're on the side under "Libby's Pictures". Enjoy

My Alaska Pictures

I added some pictures of Alaska on my blog...can't seem to figure out how to make it a slide show...but I have the website if anyone wants to go on and look at it. It's right underneath the picture of me and my two favorite bartenders, and info on me. Enjoy - It makes me homesick to look at these pictures, but I loved every minute up there this summer!!!

Before...AND AFTER!

Here is a picture of my couch before it's pillow change! In my sewing class at school the very first day of class we learned how to make these very simple pillow cases. I love them because they are simple, yet very straight and clean ruffles - not really into that look right now. What I'm trying to get at is for another class of mine I had to do a demostration, and for it I chose to show my class mates how to make this simple pillow case to jazz up a frumpy sofa. I think I did an awesome job, and not only that but I got some new pillows out of the whole dealio! Here are the new improved colorful stripe and floral pillow cases!!!

My Saturday Work Day...

I show up to work around 9:00 am and begin my day with making packets and catching up on my Grey's Anatomy (Since The Office comes on the same time...I have to chose between the two). After Grey's and stuffing packets I usually update my blog, check MySpace, and catch up on my emails. Around noon I go and get a free lunch out in our Model Homes; eat up and get back to my computer. I then decide I better work on some of my homework, so for a couple more hours I do homework. Around 4:00 pm I decid that I've done enough homework so it's time to play on the internet, I look at clothes, travel sites, books, etc. Then around 6:00 pm it's time to lock up and head home. Gee's, I'm kind of worn out from sitting in front of the computer all day!!!

Taking Care of Myself and Exercise!!!

Lately I have not been taking much care of myself...not quite sure why? Some could say depression, but I will just say pure LAZINESS! I'm so pleased with myself because the past two weeks now I have gotten up and gotten myself ready for the day. Before I was just rolling out of bed and wearing jeans, a hoodie, and a baseball cap - not flattering. I think the breaking point happened when I was driving home and Summer passed me on the road - I immediately got a phone call from her saying that she wanted to burn the "damn" hat that I was wearing. First I was stunned that she knew what I was wearing - she then informed me that she just passed me...HELLO?!?! I then got a talking to from her about how I need to take care of myself and look presentable, and then she proceeded to say that she didn't want me to be lonely. kind! I decided it was time to make some changes!

Let me say this - from observation...since I have gotten up each morning and got myself ready I have noticed a difference in doing things throughout the day. I have been getting more done in my homework, in doing house work, and just more energy. The day's I haven't gotten ready I was more lazy and didn't care! Neat observation in my book!

Also, I have had some great inspiration from some family members (Anisa, Shellie, name a few) who have lost lots of weight, toned up, and who have a daily exercise routine. Well, you have inspired me! I have been going to the gym everyday this week with Summer when she can make it, and I feel like I have been working out like crazy. It feels SO GOOD!!!

To summarize everything - my point is that I am going to keep my blog up with updates on my exercise routine! I read some where that it is a great way of staying motivated when everyone reads your blog. There you have it! I'll keep you posted on my exercising!!!

Holy $&!#...

Can I just say that text messaging is horrible!!! I went over about sixty some dollars on my phone bill this month and about had heart failure when I saw the amount of $157.08 due. I have never gone over on my phone bill, and I will never go over again! I have never liked text messaging in the first place, now I really am not liking it at all! I can't seem to bring myself to get rid of it I guess I'm going to have to keep a close watch on it for this next month. $157.08 - What was I thinking???

Temple Sealing

Today around 11:30am I attended a sealing of one of my friends who just got married. Well, as I was in a hurry to make the (what I thought) 11:30 Sealing I came rushing in the front door when I saw a very familiar man walking towards me (the front door) and It was Elder Jefferey R. Holland!!! He looked right at me and said "Hello". My mom thinks I should have tried to touch his jacket so I could be healed...HEALED from what? Singlehood??? Any how, I was thrilled to see him at the Temple!!!

Needless to say - I wasn't late for the Sealing. It was actually at 12:00pm. But I'm glad I was early and got see one of the Apostles!!!

My Journey in School...

As most of you know I am here at SUU getting my bachelors degree - in what I thought, Interior Design. Well...I guess the Lord has other plans for me. I have had to change my degree. Now, in the begining I did not pray about this, and this is something that I probably should've taken to the Lord - but I didn't, I got all high and mighty and thought that I didn't need his help or guidance. Now it's all biting me in the BUTT! The past two weeks have been very trying for me, but I have finally gained some peace of mind and now know that I'm on the right path...for the time being?!? It turns out that I have enough credits already that it won't put me any further behind, so I'm getting my bachelors in Secondary Education. I'm going to be a Home Economics Teacher. CRAZY Huh? You know, I always try to pray to know that I'm on the "right path" and I never get any such feeling so I go forward anyways...Well, the Lord always has a way to get me back on the "right path" or the path that i'm suppose to be on.

Family Pictures

This past Sunday evening we went and got our family picture updated. What an evening! The minute we walked out the door Cash threw up everywhere. He was out on the back patio puking all over the place, why my Dad was right behind him with the water hose trying to clean everything up. After his little spill we all loaded up in THREE cars to drive over to Bloomington Hills to an old Chevy truck to get our pictures taken. We followed our photographer (family friend) on a wild goose chase, or so it seemed. She took us on roads that were closed yet we went through any ways - my car luckily is still alive??? What a journey to get there?!?! Needless to say once we got there we had an awesome sunset, and Cash even had a smile on his face for the majority of the pictures. Can't wait to show everyone our updated family photo.

Only In Kanarraville....

I am now living in Kanarraville, and one beautiful cold day last week I was driving to Cedar to attend class when I was stopped on the way because of a heard of sheep. Where does this happen?!?! Only in Kanarraville...

Hawaii Here I come!!!

I just booked a 14 day trip to Hawaii! I'm so excited! I'm going with three of my girlfriends, two from Alaska, Bev and Camilla, and Audra (from St. George). The only problem is that it's a year away...We leave NEXT October 29, 2008. Crazy, I know! Since I worked for Princess this summer I get a discounted cruise to anywhere that Princess cruises. Since I'm kind of low on funds I could only afford Hawaii. I have to brag - it's only costing me $478.00. The cruise leaves out of L.A. so I don't even have to buy airfare. There is one downfall...we are going to be at sea for 8 days. Gives us plenty of time to sleep, and eat?!?! Wahoo! Hawaii here I come!

All Aboard!!!

All loaded up and waiting for the train to leave!

My Favorite Bartender! Noel...Mmmm!!!

Me and Noel posing for a picture...A daily thing for the two of us to cuddle for a picture! This is what we did on the train!!! Totally FUN!!!

My Family in Alaska - My Train Crew

As I said, I worked in Alaska for the summer as a Tour Guide - it was so fun! Probably the most fun I've had at a job in long time! I made so many friends and had a blast. Not only that but I made a lot of money too. My plan is to go back next summer and work again as a Tour Guide, and maybe do some Bartending!!! I'm also planning on driving up there as well!

I've only just begun...

So I decided to start a blog so that I can be apart of the Williams Blog site...I don't think I needed too, but oh well. Here it is!
