Do YOU believe in magic?
This song was just kind of a today's song.

Also do you know what is the best?

All of the BESTS in my life.

I have some of the best roommates EVER.
(obviously not all pictured but there is Ash and Kend)
It's time to get a full out roommate photo.

BEST friends EVER.
See above photo PLUS: 

BEST family (I will duel you if I must to defend that):

And my sister is the BEST.
She lets me vent and laugh and all sorts of stuff with her.
(p.s. my brothers are awesome too I just didn't have time to find pictures of them with me)
Also my extended family rocks my socks.
That doesn't even seem to cover it.
There are definitely ups and downs in life always but  . . .

I am spoiled. . .
in the best way possible.

p.p.s. based on this I think I need to take some more photos.

Zip-a-dee-do-dah Zip-a-dee-day

Oh Mister Bluebird on my shoulder . .  .

except wait, it wasn't a bluebird.

See this past week has been weird.
I work up Wednesday morning and did my makeup and hair a bit to try getting ready for the day and after a good fifteen minutes of being awake and walking around I looked at my shoulder only to see this:
Yup it was a spider, just crawling along.
Well being me I just grabbed it and threw it into the sink to let it die
wondering where on EARTH it came from.

Then this morning I joined my roommate Ashley in my room for breakfast and lo and behold
There was a spider double the size of the one on my shoulder
just chilling on my bedroom floor.
I promptly squished it with some lecture notes.

TWO in one week.
I am glad that they don't scare me. . .

But now I guess I need to clean and vacuum my room . . . drats.

Anyway . . . Oh mister spider on my shoulder . . .

This Week but Mostly Today

It's been rough this week has.
Ups and downs and pain and no smiling or laughing
However my roommates did a great job of laughing for me.
When needed Alaura would say, "Heidi would laugh if she could. Oh I'll laugh for her - haha."

I have learned that all pain medications are NOT equal.
And neither are foods.
For instance it's a huge difference if all you can eat is this:
I can't wait until I can eat a salad like that again!
On a happy note: I ate almost two scrambled eggs
and a piece of toast just now.
You probably shouldn't assume you will be a quick recoverer from wisdom teeth extraction as I did. .  . especially if you have three tests the following week.

But you know what?
As I walked home from my test and then got on the computer to be updated in the world I came across this blog post which then led me to this one and it made me happy.

I just LOVE her list of random things.
After all those things really are what make life happy.
Her stories make my heart smile.
And I hope it made yours too. :)

p.s. Let me again mention how AWESOME my friends and family and co-workers and boss are.
I tried the work thing this week for one hour: they covered the rest.
Michelle came and visited.
Scott brought me applesauce to eat.
Erika brought me class updates.
Necia has really been visiting Alaura but she brings happiness with her.
My roomies have all been amazing. Driving me around, getting me food and medicines and making me comfy as I could be. :)
And my family has checked on me lots. Both Cody and Shayna visited and helped me. Mom calls daily and I know my Dad loves me. Adam and Amberly are just wondrous little siblings.

I am SO blessed.
Thanks guys!

p.p.s. I also found this video today.
I think it shows true happy love and it also makes me smile.

Dear Cheeks,

I am sorry you decided to puff up quite big after surgery,
I tried to ice you quickly and continue to.

And only put comfortable food into my buccal cavity so as not to harm your delicate selves.
I didn't go to school or work today so you could just rest,
and it looks like tomorrow will also be out too.

But please get better because I need to go to work,
and I miss smiling, and laughing, and singing.

So I'd really appreciate quick healing.


Yours truly,
The girl you are a part of. 

p.s. I feel that since this picture was taken yesterday it's missing aspects of me from today - like the large red mark under my eye and what feel like even more huge cheeks . . . oh well - it's an adventure right?

Picniking away my time. . .

It's actually become a fun past time  at work for all of us.

Here are my "masterpieces" . . .
really I just don't want to put them on facebook yet
so you get a preview.

Yeah . . . I don't want to run into any of us in the forest.

p.s. thanks friends for letting me borrow pictures from facebook.

p.p.s. I am still getting the hang of it and do NOT know why my eye did that after all the editing was done . . .

Today I am thankful for tests that show me how much I have I actually learned in my past classes.

It's great to know that I got things out of them and didn't forget.
Maybe it's too early to say that since I haven't actually taken the test but hey studying is making it look good.

I know that after a post like that I shouldn't be down, especially five minutes after a post like that but I seriously don't get why it's so hard.
to know where I'm going
know what I am doing
know what I want.

p.s. in my labelling this post got out of order... oh well!

Crispy Truffle.

Today I tried one of these
Look good?
It was.
I loved the way the chocolate cracked when I bit into it
No good way to describe it really
but it was great.
Shayna said it's like a s'more . . .
I guess so but it's definitely a once in a while treat for me.

Have you had one?
What did you think?

p.s.  I really love sara bareilles' music. The end.

Letter to me

Dear self,

Do you remember how you said at the beginning of the year how you wanted to keep up on homework? And do you also remember how you haven't many times this year only to be SUPER stressed and almost driven crazy? Why have you not learned your lesson?

Stress doesn't have to be.

So please, edit that paper the day you get it back (or at least sooner than the night before it's due again), write that paper for your class project, get your research done, study for that test a little today . . . PLEASE because even though you may not have learned to stay ahead as your goal stated you have learned that stress is no bueno.

Thanks much.


p.s. it's autumn and you can play tomorrow because you are done today.

Barely Contained.

Oh my goodness I cannot even explain to you how excited I am for this weekend. It can be summed up in two words.

and I am beyond words at how giddy I am for it. Here's a clip from one of my favorite talks from last conference to get you excited too.

Oh boy!

I cannot wait!
