smiling next to oprah and the queen

I'll admit it.

I don't grocery shop.

I live at home, and leave most (all) of the food buying to my mommy.

However, I do love the idea of coupon shopping.

Savvy Shopper and Coupon Girl fascinate me.
I am constantly stalking SavvyShopper and MomsWhoSave.

I love it.

I don't understand it.

But I dooo love it.

I will strive to understand it though.  

Especially when The Queen Bee cuts me off.

(hopefully that doesn't come until after the NCLEX or at least the LPN)

but, even now, I do love a good deal.

I get so excited when I find a bargain.

For instance, who likes crackers?

oh. [HEATHERLYNN] does.

So you can imagine my excitement when I found a Wheat Thins sale

Three for five dollars!!

thats right friends.

Three Nabisco brand crackers for Five doll hairs.

if you don't buy crackers often,
let me shed some light on this for you.

Thats basically 
Buy one and a half

get one and a half 


thats freaking awesome

2. "my ovaries are drying up!!"

3. "Did you know heather's getting married?"

4.  B: You're such a cute little beaver.
S: Groundhog, I'm a groundhog.

5. She speaks spanish...
ALMOST as good as meee

6. "get a big slurpee."

7. we get kicked out of her apartment during sleepovers

8. "awww I like it when you call me boo."

9. she likes them nice and crazy.

10. She's creepy like me:)

11.  sometimes she runs out of gas/food/money at four in
the morning. oops.

12. we're both against the harlot
13. catfish.
she experienced it with me

14. "we don't want your beans and rice."

15. "bean loves you"
almost every night

16. she stayed at my house until three in the morning 
and then decided to go curl her hair.

17. slurpee runs.

18. "i'm a really really really.... BAD dancer."

19. B: You need to look cute and I 
already know what your'e going to wear.
S: okay??

20. She's the best little bean/boo ever.

You'll love us.

(marry her.)

we're not alone now I need something to sing about

I have always been jealous of Brett and Cameron's ability to meet someone for the first time, and talk to them like they had been friends for years.

Those two boys make friends everywhere they go.  I swear, Brett can walk into the gas station and simply pay for his gas and walk out with the cashier's life story.  Brett has a way of making everyone feel special.

Cameron is the same way.  Put Cam in any awkward social situation and he'll make everyone have a good time.  He has a way of easing the tension in the room and make everyone feel comfortable.  He also tends to crack people up.

I was always envious that I didn't have the same great people skills as my brothers who seemed to have friends flocking to them.  I never saw myself as having anything like that.

The other day I was talking to an OLD friend who I haven't seen in YEARS. Literally. We sat and talked for what seemed like hours and at the end of the conversation she told me that I was a good Pickup friend. Uhhh what?? I was almost offended before she explained herself.  She told me that it doesn't matter how long its been since we've last talked or seen each other, as soon as we bump into one another again we can sit and talk like we have seen each other everyday of our entire lives. There is never awkward moments.

Oh yeah. I can kind of do that.

I have tons of friends that I never see anymore.  Its not like anything has happened between us.  We aren't angry with one another or have even grown apart for that matter, we just haven't stayed in good touch.  But when we run into each other or make a lunch date, we can pick up like we never left off and talk and talk and be the friends that we were when we saw each other every day.

I guess that is kind of a good quality

Go me.

i change shapes just to hide this place

Meet Cameron.


Cameron is allergic

To Everything

Yep. Pretty much everything.

Everything good at least. 

Lets list a few,




Random Berries

and all other forms of happiness.

oh cool. 
Actually two of my older brothers received a  milk allergy for their twenty first birthday. 
Sucks to be them.
I better not.

Issue? Cameron has taken a recent home made ice cream fetish.
The kid has asked mom to make it almost every night this week. 

Finished off THREE BOWLS the other night.

death wish much?

I won't let nobody hurt you, won't let no one break your heart

 holy cow. 

so, I've always realized that there was a baby in Kira's stomach.  I mean, there is no way she's just getting fat.  I know that he kicks and moves and squirms around like all babies do.  At least I thought I knew that. But yesterday, I saw him yawn.  On the ultrasound, he yawned.  And it was the cutest little yawn ever. And i don't know why that surprised me so much.  
I guess it never really occurred to me how he really is a little human.  And he stretches, and yawns and sleeps and everything.  Even when he's in Kira's tiny little tummy.  I'm so excited for this little boy.

But seeing that little boy yawn made me remember all over again why I want to be a nurse and be there to take care of little babies like that. 

Dear Ryker

I'm your favorite aunt on your daddy's side.

Unfortunately for you/fortunately for me, you currently have slim pickings in that category.  Seeing how Uncle Clam will probably be single forever, Aunt Taffy is too cool for us now, and chubs is... well you'll see.  

 Luckily, I'm pretty sweet.

I've been waiting for you to come along for a while now.  Everyone loves you. You already have two big sisters who love you a lot, Brinley will be sure to have your back and tells everyone about you, and Presley is working so hard to say your  name.  Your mom and dad are so excited to be having a little boy.  Mom hopes you'll be a mama's boy.  Grammy Roz is already buying you cute clothes, and pulling out your daddy's old things to show you.  Tanden can't wait to have another boy cousin to run around with.  And chubs is just excited for a new baby.  Your mommy's family is very excited to see what boys are like.  You are the first for them.

You are so loved.

I got to watch your ultra sound yesterday. It was hands down the cutest ultra sound I have ever seen.  You yawned. It was adorable.  Then you put your little hand in your mouth.

I cannot wait for you to get here.

Love Aunt Heatherlynn

I'm scared of my basement if its past 9pm

I put socks on to go to bed just so I can kick them off when I'm under the covers

I like nicole's cookie dough better than her cookies

suppose we never called

Lola and I used to have sleepovers.

just about

No seriously.

We were the best of friends.

Still are. 

There was this one time.

When i was like ten.

We were trying to make carmel popcorn but she didn't have any of the stuff except pop corn.  

So we added Sweet and Condensed Milk, Salt, Milk, and Mint extract. 
We added wayy to much Mint extract.
And then we crushed peppermint patties and put them in too.
It was ridiculously minty.
But we couldn't stop eating it.
We finished all of it.

We were best friends.
Still are.

this is surely not what you thought it would be

"I live somewhere between hope and fear. 
 Hope that this time it will be different, and fear
 that it will turn out like it did before."
---Taylor Swift

I love this quote

 Mostly because it describes my feelings towards dating for the past year and a half perfectly.  So far I have lived closer to fear than I have to hope. I feared letting myself be vulnerable, I feared not being good enough, I feared being let down, I feared getting hurt, and I feared hurting someone else.  But most of all I feared it working out.  I was good at be scared. I liked it.

But given recent events I've started to think,
Maybe its time I start living in hope.
Maybe its time I put the fear of dating, and the fear of love behind me.  Maybe its time I start saying [YES] to [DATES].  Maybe its time I stop being afraid of meaning something to someone, and having someone mean something to me

Maybe its time to FAll in loVE.

123rd Fear Street. 
Its a fabulous residence.

Wednesday, October 6, 2010

i got a lot to say to you

I'm real confused.

You see UCCU is the official bank of UVU

They even bought the 
Naming rights to the event center.

UCCU has been my bank my whole life.

Live right down the street from it.

UCCU issues Visa Credit and Debit cards.

So riddle me this

Why doesn't UVU accept

Visa credit or debit cards for

tuition or fee payments??

I'm puzzled.

but i keep on waiting, anticipating

Sometimes I want to be in Love

Then I realize

I just want a boy who will call me a lot. 

So I can set his Ringtone 


He Could Be The One 


Hannah Montana

thats not too much to ask is it?

So... any volunteers?

Or I would settle for him


Monday, October 4, 2010

and I'm so glad you've rectified my mind

chyeah bro.

Rock On.

Rad Dude.

Sweet Brah.

Yes I do say these things on a daily/hourly basis.
No I don't care you think its weird.
Yes it does make me cooler than you.
No you can't start saying them.

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

I will do it too, i will that for you

Today I talked to a girl in the testing center line.

For some reason my nerves made me funny.

Had the girl rolling on the floor laughing.

At the end of the conversation she said:

"OMG! You should TOTALLY blog!!"

uh. thanks?

Monday, September 27, 2010

HE ain't got much to say

boy scouts

sitting in a sandpit life is a short trip

for one day 
one day only

I will again be a dancer with the most flexible back and a strong center

I will admit that I am in love with the boy I've always wanted, and I can never have

My family will be whole again, and I won't remember saying goodbye to my dad

I will be comfortable in my skin, and confident in my self.

I will say the thoughts that I bury in the back of my head, and be heard by all.

The family of Four will be separated by only one city, and the smiles will be endless.

My best friend will be healthy, and the center of my strength again.

I will not be scared of losing another one, and feeling that pain.

make the stars look like their not shining

Lessons Learned from Jill

When moving out One should avoid

..  Roommates who are afraid to flush the toilet
because you're apartment will smell like urine
(no offense madi.)

.. Roommates who have an unhealthy obsession
with a city.  Unless you want vinyl eiffel tower 
on your fridge.

.. Roommates who don't enjoy bathing but do
enjoy playing sports.  Enjoy that sweaty 
laundry smell under the bed.

stay tuned next week for segment two of 
lessons learned from jill, 
Reason's one should never date a Zoob.

happy is the heart that still feels


seeing old ballroom friends in the halls at uvu and having them sit on your lap to talk.

working thursdays with jill and remembering why i hate dating

knowing a new little baby is here ( and one on the way ) and remembering why i want to be a nurse

making the [PERSON] you can't stand you're [GREATEST] motivation and [STRONGEST] driving force

finding a dress that fits you perfect and having it be 75% off because the universe owes you one

hair thats slept on and messy but gets you a compliment from a stranger in the bathroom

massages that reconnect you with a dance friend from over a million years ago and who is cuter than ever

being recognized as a peterson by a cousin's boss because you tend to visit and chat that much

that gus and cookie are one hundred percent fail at the blog challenge and are going to owe me baked goods for weeks (bennett, you can start with white enchiladas, gusy, snickerdoodles sound fabulous)

Wednesday, September 15, 2010
