His Little Elf

I was always teased as a child for being small. I have really big ears for my size and they happen to stick out like an elf. Not only do they stick out but one of my ears actually has a point on it. Children in school used to call me an elf. As a child I only thought of Santa's little helpers when I was teased. I grew to kinda have a complex. I try to hide my ears as much as possible with my hair. But when I do pull my hair back people always see my ears and comment on them.
Ever since The Lord of the Rings movies came out I saw a whole new meaning of elf. In Middle Earth the elf is described as the fairest of beings. They are tall and thin and very beautiful. I don't mind being called an elf anymore. I embrace it. I'm pretty much Tolkien's dream girl. I may not be tall but I'm thin and fair and very dainty.
In a previous post I mentioned that I like E.L.Fudge cookies. I asked Carlos to buy me some more and he did. When he came home with my cookies he handed them to me and said, "Here are some elf cookies for my little elf!"
I thought that was sweet and I decided to blog about it.
Here are some pictures of my new vision of Elf!
So the next time someone calls me and elf...I am going to visualize myself as one of these..... These next two elves would be so much prettier if they were blonde! I'm going to pretend that they are!
So there you have it! I will be one of these the next time someone wants to be negative about my ears!
So just picture me with really long hair and my ears poking out from my hair and you have an elf! I could use a really cute elven outfit and a forest behind me too!

I will never shop at this store again!

I bought a Paramore CD there today and I was all excited cause I've been wanting this CD for a really long time.

I noticed that they had 2 different copies of the same CD except one was live and the other wasn't. The one that was live had a DVD and CD and it was only a dollar more than the other one. I was thinking that the live part was on the DVD. I thought this was a great deal getting the CD and a live DVD for only a dollar more. So I bought the dang thing.

When I got out to my car and popped the CD in I realized that not only was the DVD live but the CD was live too. I usually don't like live concerts cause the band never sounds the same and they usually are flat and sharp a lot. Paramore is no exception! The live CD sounds horrible. I love this band but I did not enjoy my purchase. So I decided to go back into ShopKo and exchange the CD for the other one.

When I got to the service center the lady had to call her supervisor since I had already opened the CD. The supervisor came and told me that I couldn't return the CD unless I exchanged it for the same exact thing. I told her that I didn't realize the CD was live and I wasn't happy with my purchase. She still wouldn't take it back. I complained and said I was buying the same CD just not the live version. She pointed at the Return and Exchange board behind her and told me that was the policy. Screw their policy. At Macy's we return ANYTHING!!!

ShopKo Sucks!!!

So when I got home I scooped the cat's litter box and put her poops in the ShopKo sack and chucked it in the dumpster!!

That's What You Get
(that happens to be the title of a Paramore song)

At least the DVD is enjoyable and I'm getting something for my money!

ShopKo is definitely not my life, my style, OR my store.

Shows I Watched After School

I was thinking of some of the shows I watched when I got home from school as a teenager and I thought I would share what some of them were.

The Nanny

My older brother got me into this show and I've been addicted ever since. I love everything about this show except maybe Fran's voice. But who notices that when you are having a good laugh? I love the story line and all the characters! This show is the best! I currently own the first 3 seasons which is amazing since they are impossible to find!


I absolutely love Doug! Even though some of the people are green and purple this show always taught a valuable lesson. I love everything about this show. I wish they still played it.


This show was so creative!!! I love the characters and the awesome world they live it.

Sailor Moon

The only anime that I absolutely love! I would actually love to get all the season for this show but I'm afraid my boy friend would make fun of me.

Ooh-La-La Tuxedo Max....


This show was so cute! I just loved the adventures these babies went on with their imaginations!

What were some of the shows you watched?

Shawn and Mark won Season 8 of Dancing With the Stars!!!

Monday, May 18, 2009

Thank You Freestyle

The finals just ended and it was amazing.
The night started with all 3 couples doing a Paso Doble to the same song. Everyone did great.
As I suspected, the judges were harsh on Shawn for being young and not connecting with her partner. She received a 28 out of 30 for her Paso.
Melissa did a graceful Paso and received a 29 out of 30.
Gillis of course was sexy and received a 30 for his Paso Doble.
Then came the Freestyle round! I always expect the freestyle dances to blow me away and this season they didn't.....except......
Shawn and Mark!!!
They were Outstanding. The judges loved it and so did the crowd. They received a perfect 30!! Giving them a combined score of 58 out of 60! Great job!
Melissa and Tony did a freestyle full of tricks that didn't please me or the judges. They got a 27 giving them a combined score of 56.
Gillis did a dance that wasn't really much of a dance. It didn't do anything for me and the judges were disappointed just as much as I was. They scored a 28 giving them a combined score of 58.
So that puts Shawn and Gillis at the top and Melissa close behind.
Thanks to that Freestyle....Shawn and Mark might have a chance at winning this thing!!
Fingers crossed!!!

The Finals

The Finals of Dancing With The Stars is tomorrow night and I'm so excited. This has been an amazing season full of talent and surprises. My three favorite people have made it to the finals:

Shawn and Mark
Melissa and Tony

Gillis and Cheryl

I've been voting for Shawn and Mark all season but I'm afraid that the mirror ball trophy will go to either Melissa or Gillis. I'm pretty sure that they have better fan bases and the judges love them more than Shawn.

Shawn is young and I think the judges look down on that. Despite the fact that she is young I think that she has danced the best on this show this season. The athletes always do well on Dancing With The Stars. Her technique is amazing and I hope that she shines tomorrow night.

Melissa did ballet as a young girl and she has brought that technique to the competition. She is a very talented dancer but I think the trophy should go to someone that has no previous dancing experience. It would be like me going on the show with my 12 years dance experience and winning over 12 other people that have never danced before and might be twice my age. It doesn't seem fair for her to win.

Gillis would probably deserve this win the most because he is no athlete and no dancer. He won the judges' hearts from the very beginning. However, he hasn't been very versatile. He does very well on the Latin dances but his ballroom isn't very good. He does well with the sexy dances but his jive and jitter bug kind of dances are lame.

It will be exciting to see these three dancers tomorrow night! I'm hoping that Shawn with perform perfectly and that the judges will be nice and judge fairly.

Wish Shawn and Mark Good Luck for me!

You could always vote for them too: 1-800-868-3409

My Near Death Experience

In my last post I answered a "yes" to a near death experience. I thought I would explain why I put a yes for that question.
I've never really been in any serious near death experiences but there were times when I could have died or thought I was going to be killed!
I remember a time when I was a young girl where my family was on a family vacation. It was Christmas time and we were driving to Pennsylvania to visit family. The snow was really bad and my dad was having a hard time seeing the road. I was asleep in the back of the station wagon with the rest of my siblings when I felt the car spin out of control and heard both of my parents scream! It was pretty scary. My mom told us that we almost died!
There was this other time when I was also a young girl and I was playing in the backyard. My mom didn't like us playing in the front yard all that much because there was no fence to keep us safe. Anyway I was playing in the backyard and my mom got this prompting to have me play in the front yard. I listened to my mom and went to the front yard to play and shortly after I left, a huge tree branch fell and landed on the ground right where I had been playing in the backyard. I was a small girl and this branch was really big so if it had landed on me I could have been seriously injured!
When I was 19 years old I drove to Downtown Houston with one of my girlfriends to go to a singles dance. We usually car pooled with other single people from our stake institute but I had to work late that night and so we decided to drive ourselves. We forgot what exit we were supposed to take and we ended up taking the wrong one. We were so lost. We stopped at a gas station to ask for directions but the employees were behind a bullet proof glass wall. We were really freaked out by that. We walked back to the car and it was surrounded by crazy men that were looking us up and down and whistling at us. It was really scary! I thought we were going to get shot or raped!!
I overdosed on medicine once by complete accident!! Nothing happened but I remember being really freaked out when I discovered that it was a miracle I woke up in the morning!
So nothing too serious but they are reasons to fear death!

Hair Obsession

I love to get my hair done!!! There is something about being in the salon and coming out looking like a star that I'm completely obsessed about! I always love to take pictures of myself after I've gotten my hair done at the salon. Here are some pictures of my last salon visit (which was actually a little over a month ago).

I love taking pictures too! What would I do without a camera?

And yes I'm a goofball for taking all these pictures with different angles!

My Baby Girl

Meet Kitty
So I'm a complete idiot and I just realized that my memory stick works in my boyfriends computer. I'm excited cause now I can put pictures from my camera on here.
So here are a few pictures of my baby girl. These pictures make her look bloated but she is really slim and petite in real life (just like her mother)!
I wish you could really see her eyes cause they are a beautiful shade of blue. I'm so jealous!
She is really responsible and she cleans herself on a daily basis! Good girl ! She loves to play! The first toy I bought her was a mouse that you put catnip in and she completely devoured the thing. We had to throw it away after 2 days cause she pretty much ate it.

She loves to sleep on the bed. I love having a lap cat. She doesn't like to be held but she sits on my lap when I watch TV and sit on the couch. I hear she sleeps on the bed at night too. Sweet huh? As cute as she may be...Kitty was really bad the other day and she hurt her father. She was getting into a bonsai tree that Carlos is making and he kinda yelled at her. She went crazy and attacked his hand really bad. I didn't see this happen but he told me that one of her claws was embedded in his flesh. Gross! His hand is pretty scratched up. Even though she was bad...we still love her and for the most part she is an angel. To me at least!! ;-p
