The good and bad of being sick for 5 days...

-I've lost 8 pounds since Friday. A friend pointed out a quote from The Devil Wears Prada..."I'm only one stomach flu away from my goal weight."
-Maybe being sick changed my hair color.  I've had so many students ask me today if I colored my hair.  It does look a little more red today.
-All of my sisters and my mom called me within a 24 hour window.  I love my family.
-My roommates were really nice to me. They went to the store for me, and Annie drove me to to my school on Sunday night to get sub plans ready.
-A lot of people brought stuff to me and called/texted me to see how I was doing.  I feel loved
-I got to watch a lot of Lost.
-I read a lot.
-I got to sleep a lot.  I like to sleep.
-I'm on a 3 day work week right now.

-I don't like going to the doctor.  I don't really have a primary physician.  I went to the instacare...what a joy.
-I don't like feeling awful.  Especially when I have no control.
-I hate writing sub plans. I'd rather go to school sick than write them (hence the reason I'm here today)
-I missed out on so many great things...Annie's talk at church, mix & mingle, movie night, FHE, etc.
-There are some other details that I sure won't tell you on here. :)
-Not knowing what's wrong with you.  The lab results are supposed to be in we'll see!  They said it's not the flu, so I'm not contagious or anything.
-I got tired of sugary things...mainly Gatorade/Powerade and things like applesauce.  I know it's important to keep yourself hydrated, but I can only handle so much sugar!  It was heaven when my roommates brought home chicken broth and saltines. Mmm!

Thanks to everyone who has been so nice to me...especially my roommates who have been putting up with me.  You're really nice!!!  I don't ever want you guys to get sick, but I hope I can take as good care of you as you did to me!

Who Knew?" --French Dip Edition

Remember long ago when I said I was going to start sharing random stuff about me once a week?
Well I obviously didn't remember!  Plus school started, and I just don't remember anything when school starts!

So here is your "Who Knew?" for the day...
I love french dip sandwiches!
This looks so good!

I could eat one every single day.
When anyone asks where I want to eat, I often suggest Arby's because I know they have delicious french dip sandwiches.  
Maybe I'll get one on my way home from work today.

Brent and Allison headed to the hospital last night to start the inducement process.

Junior High Joke of the Day!

Did you hear about the silkworms that were in a race?
 It ended in a tie.

Get it?

Last week in class, we were talking about fibers...including the process of making silk from silkworms.
I was so proud of my students who came in this morning and told me this joke.

Happy Birthday to me...a month ago

That is the happy, puffy-eyed face of a girl who just got out of bed on birthday morning! :)

Other than not having power all morning at our house, it was a great day!

It all started off with me being spoiled with presents from my roommates.
And my mom...that hilarious lady called Annie and had her go get one of these for me...

My very own Jacob Black doll!
My wildest wishes have come true!
(Can't you see it on my face?)

Next we went to J-Dawgs in Provo.  My roommates made me wear that awesome headband.  Hey, it got me extra pickles on my dog!
(with Annie and Erin)
Cheryl and Rob know how to handle it

Joleen's sister was in town that weekend.  They blew up an entire bag of balloons!

It was amazing!

We had a fun ward activity that afternoon.

Then we had a party.
26 people came to my 26th birthday party.
How cool is that???
I don't have a picture of everyone, but some of my favorite people in the world were there!
Including (but not limited to)
Joleen (roommate) and Cheryl (former roommate)

and Kristen (former roommate), Amy (didn't want to turn around for the picture), and Carie (BFF)
Thanks to everyone who made it such a fun day!  Especially my amazing roommates!  They know how much I love birthdays, and they didn't let me down at all! :)

Beverly Hills

Today is September 2, 2010.
I don't think I've ever watched that show, but I thought it was pretty cool when I heard that on the radio.  Apparently they're having a 90210 marathon today on tv.
P.S. Happy Birthday, Tessa!

Real Salt Lake

I'm attempting to update on summer events.  Joleen and I got a group of friends together to go to a Real Salt Lake soccer game on the 24th of July.  It was so fun!

We were waiting for the rest of our group to arrive, and it was so hot!  We made friends with the 7-Eleven slurpee girl, and she provided shade with her sign. :)
(L to R: Miss Slurpee, Russ, Paul, Jason, Joleen, Kim)

You can see by the joy on these faces that we all had fun!

So my roommate Joleen has been known to say that she would say yes to anyone who proposed to her during a fireworks show.

FYI, if you read this post today, the lady from my previous blog post is having a buy one get one free sale through today!  She sent a message and asked if I wanted a free item.  HELLO!  Of course I did!  I didn't get a picture before she took it off her sight, but I got some more cute earrings!
