Current Obsession

(I have this in Amber, which is the 3rd from the left)
I bought some of this while I was in Arizona. (We dont have a Sephora here) I love love love it! It gives you more full and voluptuous lips, but it doesn't sting and hurt like some of the other lip plumping products out there. Give it a try you wont be disappointed, unless you already have full lips...in that case I hate you...in the kindest way possible of course.

Summer lovin

This summer I have fallen in love with my trampoline...It's not weird that I am 26 and jump on the trampoline everyday for about 30 min, right.

P.S. Sorry I have been MIA. I have been super busy, and then my hard drive crashed. That was a sad day. :(

You're kidding right...

I took my boss's car to be washed this afternoon. It was taking forever, finally I asked about it. Turns out that the brilliant kids washing the car locked the keys inside. Were they not going to tell me? Don't worry they got it open, with a slim jim.... It's really quite comical and if it was going to happen to anyone, it would be me!

Hope your Monday has been great!

Call me crazy

Clases de Ingles Graduacion = English class graduation.
I saw this sign the other day. If you are graduating from English class, shouldn't the sign be in English?

The ride...

Lately I have been feeling very down about myself, my life, and well basically everything. I went to Arizona last weekend to visit some friends and to hopefully find the fun Stephanie again. I had a blast and I owe a lot of it to Jenna (She's cool, check out her blog).

On Sunday as I got to the airport I realized that my flight had been delayed. I had taken the latest flight there was (I really did not want to leave, I would live there in a heartbeat) so I was already getting home fairly late. With the delayed flight that meant a later arrival time which would then mean less sleep for the next day. To say the least I was not the happiest camper about this, but I was in a good mood because of the fantastic weekend I just had. I was lucky enough to be in the first boarding group (gotta love Southwest) so I got a good seat. As the other passengers were boarding the plane this mom came up to me and asked if she and her two boys could sit next to me. I asked her how old her twin boys were, and she said well they are not twins, one is 2 and the other is 8 months. The 2 year old had down syndrome and was small even for a special needs child. He sat in the seat next to me.

This little boy, B, he had the most amazing blue eyes and kind smile. You know on Americas Next Top Model when Tyra says "smile with your eyes", he does that. He smiled at me, I smiled at him and we were instant friends. He shared my magazine and showed me pictures on the safety pamphlet. He tried to share his bottle, and he would try to talk to me the best that he could. Amazingly I was able to understand what his sounds were and get him the things he wanted. As the plane was landing he got scared. He immediately grabbed my arm, put his head on my shoulder and held on. This sweet little boy was able to build a friendship and then trust me with his life in one short hour.

This week as I have been struggling with some things, this little boy has come to mind. I wish that I could be like him. I wish that I could trust and love like him. I wish that in my dark and scary times I was able to let go and put my life into the hands of someone else. I have this strange desire to be in control, to know exactly what is going to happen and to prepare for it. I know that with these particular struggles it is an opportunity to strengthen my faith. I have decided that I am going to be like that special little boy, hold on, lay my head on the Lords shoulder and see what he has in store for me. Wish me luck!

I will forever be grateful to that mother for choosing to sit next to me. I learned so much in that short hour, and will reflect upon it many times.

The spirit of giving...

Allison from A Little Bit of Everything gave me this award. The rules say that I need to share 7 things about me... Enjoy!1. I love love love my job. I feel that it is the perfect job for me. I am a super organized person and this is a big part of my job. I also get to explore a little bit of my creative side.

2. I love books... I am sure that Barnes and Noble has a preferred customer list and I should be on it. If I hear about a book and that is was good, I will buy it.

3. I am addicted to handbags. I can never have enough. When I buy a house, there will have to be an extra room for my handbags, well and shoes.

4. I hate Olives

5. I went on an 18 month service mission for my church to NY. I learned more in that 18 months than I have from any other time of my life. There is not a day go by that I don't think back to an experience I had out there.

6. I love to travel and I am always dreaming of new places to go... I usually don't go there, but I plan fake trips just to see what I could do there.

7. I love little kids, I can't wait to be a mom (I really hope that happens one day).

In the spirit of giving I am passing along this fun little award to...Drum roll please

I'm outta here

(image from here)
So for the last few months I have been counting down to this day. I will be boarding a plane and heading down south to Arizona to hang out with a friend. This is a much needed break. I have become onery and mean in the last few days...you could probably tell by this post. I am so looking forward to sleeping in, laying by the pool, and soaking up some rays...I was told that AZ is 20 degrees hotter than where I live. One of my friends thought it was quite funny and said that I might pass out. I hope I don't die.

I might be absent from the blogger world for a few days. Rest assured, I will return and I might even have a cheerier attitude about things.

Have a fabulous week

Hate Notes

Dear Jilian
I.HATE.YOU! You are boring, and frankly you
don't deserve any of the guys you have left.
Good luck getting engaged at the end of this.
Dear Co-worker
Your problem doesn't =my problem.
Sorry, deal with it!
Dear Twitter
I don't know how you
work really. I need a tweeting
tutor. Do you have those? Doesn't
this make stalking easier, is that
really what we need now?

P.S. I do have a twitter account. I don't really know what I am doing but feel free to follow me at: http://twitter.com/stephoria

I need a nap

Do you think it is completely unprofessional to pull my blanket out (its cold here and I have it for emergencies, such as this) and curl up for 20 min under my desk? I am leaning towards, not appropriate, but might do it anyway.

The all knowing Facebook...

Has anyone noticed that ‘Facebook’ knows all? One of my biggest pet peeves is those stupid Facebook quizzes. I hate logging in and having my home page taken up with quiz results. Who really cares that their once high school friend’s princess name is Aurora? Ok with that being said, one day I was bored and decided to take said quizzes. Don’t worry I didn’t publish them so the don’t take up space on all my friend’s walls. I have learned many things and thought I would share.

I now know to stay away from giant pools of lemonade (I am suppose to drown and die in one) and my ghetto nickname is “Pooki”... if you value your life then don’t ever call me that. I know that I am 100% dateable which is good, since I am suppose to get pregnant in 2.5 months, my first child is due in June 2010. I will be getting married twice the first time being Oct 2011, they haven’t told me when the second wedding will be, I guess I will just have to leave that up to fate. Oh and the best news of all is that I was born to be the best at everything.

I hope everyone has a great 4th of July weekend.
