Good Bye Hawaii!

Thank you Hawaii for the best eight months ever!

I loved every minute of it.

I'm off to San Antonio for the holidays then off to Chicago.

Best life ever.

Thank you God.

Paypal Look-A-Like

I got 3 facebook messages yesterday saying I looked just like the girl on

I kinda think we do look alike and I never think people look like me.

What do you think?


One of the things I am going to miss most about Hawaii is playing tennis.

I have played tennis pretty much twice a week for the last six months.

I had to take the month of September off because I got to angry and needed to calm down.

I got so angry that I threw my racket on the ground and it bended the top of it into a square.

I call it my sponge bob square racket.

That's right I have a love/hate relationship with tennis.

My whole life I have only played team sports: volleyball, soccer and basketball.

I was always very athletic.

In fact my Mom used to take my brother and I out to play tennis in the summer time and it was fun but mainly a cardio type thing.

Playing tennis in Hawaii has made me realize how much I missed out not playing an individual sport.

In tennis you can really only get mad at yourself but I like to get mad at Brett.

Brett drives me insane playing tennis.

My blood boils and I want to hit him with the tennis ball which I have done successfully.

He in turn hit me right in my crotch then doubled over in laughter.

Tennis has done wonders for my body.

I feel like its the sole reason I have a waist again.

Just all the twisting and turning and my arms seem a little firmer as well.

I just love love love tennis and the camaraderie its built.

I'm going to miss is sooooooooooo much =(

But I told Jeff we would play my Mom and brother in San Antonio.

Here's a few actions shots and a video of us warming up!

The barista spelled my name right all on her own.

That has never happened.

I did a wheat grass shot with Brett and it made me throw up.

Can you find my little friend?

Went on a train ride and fed pigs.

I love walking by the Marriot Resort right before nightfall.

My new friend Brettina.

Group of little kids playing the ukelele.

Very impressive.

Makeover Time

I am in need of a little maintenance.

All this sunshine has made me break out a bit and has also seemed to fry my hair.

No complaints just facts.

Now I only cut my hair about once a year.

I'm interested in finding a hair style in which I can wear my hair down when I perform and yet still have it stay out of my face.

Impossible you say?

Then what about professional cheerleaders?

They always have their hair down and it never gets in their face.

How do they achieve this?

I plan on asking my stylist Elva.

Also for the last few years I have been dying my hair a darker brown than it really is.

The last two times however the dye seemed to wash out really fast.

So I can't decide if I will dye my hair and if so what color.


For years I only used expensive make-up: Bobbi Brown, Smashbox, Clinique, MAC etc.

However for the last eight months I have been using el cheapo Maybelline mineral powder and other pharmacy brands and have been pretty happy.

I feel that after almost a year of using the cheap stuff however it would be O.K. to go back to the expensive stuff for a while.

That being said should I go back to a brand I've already tried or should I try something new?


Lastly I have been using Aveeno and Clean and Clear facial cleansers for the last 4 years.

They usually do the drink but not at the moment.

What fancy facial cleaners should I try?

I like a good, clean, scrubbed face, that feels tingly clean.

Anyone have any tips?

Farmville and Nanowrimo

Well I have entered myself in the National Novel Writing Month contest.

It goes from November 1-30 and in that time you are suppose to write 50,000 words which would equate to a 175 page book.

This is a difficult task since I am trying to do so with a quill pen, dressed in prairie clothes like the photo above.

Upon finding this photo I had to ask myself were there cameras back then?


Rather I am dressed in gym gear, eating handfuls of goldfish and falling asleep every hundred words or so.

This is going to be a very difficult task.

However I know other people are doing the contest as well and I'm pretty competitive.

I find myself thinking "Well if John has 3,000 words I should have that many too."

Turns out I can write while watching T.V.

In other news I have joined Farmville on Facebook.

Although I must say I have no idea what I am doing.

I logged on today to find that my 3 plots of strawberries I had planted had in fact died.

My joining Farmville has had a mixed reaction from the Facebook community.

Several improv friends seem pleased that I have joined and have asked me to be farm neighbors whereas my cool college brother wrote me a message saying "Tell me you didn't just join Farmville."

Will see how long I stay a farmer.
