Everyone loves a good Q&A

2. Where do you live? City, State? if you could live anywhere, where would it be?

Fredericton, NB, CANADA! I love living there, born and raised. Honestly I can't choose the one place I could like because I haven't seen enough of the world yet, but North Carolina is a beautiful place and is at the top of my list as of now.

I am still a student enrolled in university, but I've been working at Point Lepreau Nuclear Plant in a student partnership program since last May, and will be there until this Sept. I love my job!

I love power engineering WOO!

14. What's on your bedside table.

When I wake up, as I'm not at home right now, usually:
- an empty glass or two (which used to be filled with water, and i am too lazy to take them upstairs to the sink...)
- my ipod stereo/alarm clock/ipod charger with a sickeningly bright screen that i need to cover up at night so i can sleep
- a ceramic square plate which was passed down to me from earlier sorority sisters and has a rainbow and IBX painted on it (this is great for holding all sorts of things so they don't roll off)
- a little pink my little pony with turquoise zebra stripes (my oldest sister used to collect them so i inherited it with the room and that is just where it lives)
- my cell phone charger cord and my cell phone if i havent woken up yet (it is also my alarm in the morning)
- probably some dirty tissues that havent made their way to the garbage yet (it is cold season after all)
- possibly my tv, dvd, vcr or ipod stereo remote, whichever one that's in use at the time, the rest are stowed in the bed side table drawer)


Woop! Almost lunch time...

momma made me a delicious lunch last night cuz i was busy at a ring making class until late: rice and honey garlic spare ribs, celery with cheese whiz, some cheddar crispy mini rice cakes, an apple and some honeydew melon. best mom EVER.

50 Books in 1 Year

I have been challenged to read 50 books in 1 year.

However, in order to finish on time I would have only one week to finish each book, with no weeks off. :|

YIKES! I am an extremely slow reader. So, instead I'm going set my goal at, hopefully, the safe number of 15. I love reading and am already reading the first 3 books. Books 4 through 9 are repeaters, but I have been meaning to read them again so I put them on the list. I'm hoping this will be motivation to make me read more!













any suggestions to get me to 15?

Cuddles and snow frolicking pictures.

Me, Erica and Cali cuddling on the bed


Me driving (it is WHITE out)


SNOW! me and momma walking downtown


Britt!




Mom and Britt


Me! In my non-winter jacket.




Crazy sisters


And this is just about when we got into our snowball fight, aka britt throwing snow at me while mom sat in the car and i cleaned the snow off the car. But then i got her back good. Snowball to face!!! Lol.

I miss my sisters. They're gone back to their respectful homesteads now...Britt in Edmonton, Alberta and Erica in Half Moon Bay, California. Love love love.

Christmas eve ritual: reservation lights.

Pretty twinkle lights! Every year the indian reservation puts on a christmas light show (since they dont have to pay for electricity) Here are some snaps of the good houses! They are usually a lot better but apparently this year everyone got lazy except for a select few..enjoy!













Can you spot Santa Claus?!








And the winner! For best light display and spirit (as chosen by me :) )




The laziest house...seriously? One string of lights! Lol. Joke!


SEIZURE lights....enough said.
video

(loving everyones commentary: me britt brad and erica all speak!)

more inside jokes...do they ever really end?

yupp. click me.

Agent 92

Over the years of regularly going out in downtown Fredericton, we have accumulated a tumultuous amount of taxi rides. There are about 10 Taxi providers in the area, so not often do we get the same taxi twice.

Until there was Agent 92.

We met Agent 92, or Jon, two summers back when me, my sister Britt and M were going out every weekend. The first time we rode his cab we were pumped cuz he handed us his iPod touch (or iPhone..not sure if touch was out then) and let us choose whatever music we wanted! It was awesome!

Another time he saw B and M walking after the bar to the Diplomat for some 24hour deliciousness. He picked them up and drove them for free!

There are more stories..can't think of any right now. But recently, he recognized our address on the radio and went to pick us up! What a surprise!!! (hadn't seen him for awhile) Again he put the iPod in my hand, but this time there was a little improvement to his cab: under glow on the driver and passenger visors! LOL. It was hilarious and strobe-d along with the music. We ended up getting his personal cell # so we'd be able to call him directly to get picked up. He drove us home that night again, and I guess one of his regulars had given him a huge bag of sour patch kids (my FAVORITE). He offered them to me cuz he doesnt like them. I was like HELLS YES. I'm eating some now...thank you 92, thank you.





Standard Taxi - request Jon. He is da bomb!

Christmas!!!!

Every year we talk about not doing the whole present thing. I'm the youngest basically in my close family, at 21. The santa jig is up! Lol. So, my mom always announces you know, I'm not buying any presents this year, no presents, and so on. Then she goes on about how there will be no stockings. And then that if there are stockings she's not wrapping anything in them.

Well of course that didn't happen, me Britt Erica and Brad all had overflowing stockings and the tree was full of presents. (YAY!)

Early morning stocking opening!

The beautiful tree


Stockings!


Daddy with his coffee


Momma and Britt


The four muskateers


Next, on to Grammie C's for some delicious christmas breakfast.

Gram and her tree


Breakfast and fun cracker hats!


Erica not looking impressed ?








We all opened presents at Gram's then came back home to open the presents under our tree. (We made a bit of a mess...but the cat liked it!)





Here are a few out of the ton that I got. But all were awesome!

2 Notebooks


Chi travel set, works at 120 and 220 volts (Euro-trip, here I come)


The Lovely Bones


Heaps of candy...too much.


A bag of buttons! to make things with..


Awesome makeup: Sephora, Clinique, Urban Decay and Rimmel red lipstick <3


Some movies


Matching Christmas sweaters: me Britt and Erica all got the same ones! (and then proceeded to wear them for the rest of the day)


Some New Moon gear, of course: A Jacob blanket and pillow case, calendar, Taylor Lautner Rolling Stone poster and a Jacob bookmark (can you guess what team I'm on?)


No new camera :( but my awesome brother-in-law taught me to utilize some of the functions on my own. I'm much happier with it, for now.

Hope everyone had a most wonderful christmas!
