About Me

I've grown up in Phoenix and have LOVED it!! I have 3 beautiful sisters and 8 wonderful nieces and nephews!! They light up my life!! I have wonderful parents who still continue to help me grow every day. I really could not ask for better parents. Right now I take care of my wonderful grandmother who has dementia. We have so much fun together. And I'm grateful that I can spend this time with her!

A little Blessing from God!!

I took Grandma shopping today at Target. And as we were checking out this little boy and his younger sister stopped my grandma. The little boy said to Grandma that his sister wants to tell her that she loves her. The little girl was standing there looking up at her... and she said to Grandma "I love you." Her mom was standing right there... and I said to her that that was the cutest thing. Her Mother began to tell me that her daughter saw Grandma and she would not go anywhere until she talked to Grandma. She told her mom that she thought Grandma was beautiful and she NEEDED to tell her. Can I just say that kids are a blessing!! Grandma was so touched that this little girl loved her... she had a smile on her face for hours.
So I have this note to ALL parents... if your child ever feels the need to tell someone they don't know that they love them or that they are beautiful or just any compliment... let them. You may not know who's prayers are being answered. I don't know this mom that let her daughter follow her heart, but I am truly grateful to see my grandma so happy! I thank my Heavenly Father for answering my prayers to make sure my grandma knows that she is loved!!

November Time!!!!

OK... so it has NOT been an ENTIRE month since I last blogged... so I kept my word... hahahaha!!!!

Where to begin... let's start off with the Twilight premiere... We had a big group show up for the midnight showing!! Thanks to everyone that came and enjoyed a little Edward time with me!!! It was totally fun!!!!!!!! I thought they did a good job with the movie... of course it was not as good as the book... but it was still good enough for me... I saw it twice in less then 12 hours... hahaha!!!! I can't wait for the second movie!! I'm sure you all heard the 2nd movie was approved to film!! Wahoo!!!!!!!! My sisters and I wore handmade t-shirts... Brianne's said: What do you mean Edward isn't real??? Tara's said: Edward, please BITE me!! and mine said: Christmas wish list: 1. Move to Forks 2. Meet Edward 3. Become a Vampire!! hahaha!! I thought they were great!!! Michelle and I had a blast at the theater... we went around taking crazy pictures of ourselves... if you want to see those you'll have to go to Facebook and check them out :)

The next item of topic is... Breba and Josh!! Did you all here that they are totally an item??? Yep... they got together at Bruce and Emily's reception!! Look how cute they are together!!! I think it's Breba's new super cute haircut that made Josh go wild!!!!
Oh wait... I forgot something IMPORTANT!! If Ashley Perkins (aka...Big Ash) ever says she wants to cut your hair... RUN!!!!! Don't EVER let her come near you with scissors!!!!!! Tell her "Ashley, everything is going to be OK... I'm going to a hairdresser that has a license!!" If you don't tell her... or you don't RUN... then this might happen to you!! You might have to go ask Taylor or any other guy to FIX your hair!! Yes everyone... Breba had to get Taylor to fix the mess that Big Ash created!! haha!! Does everyone see how much Ash cut off Breba's head... it's like 3 1/2 to 4 inches shorter... it was only suppose to be a trim of maybe an inch at most.... hahahahahaha!!! Luckily Breba has a good friend that does hair here... and her hair looks fantastic. So lesson learned... DON'T LET BIG ASH COME NEAR YOU WITH SCISSORS!!!

OK... now we're up to Thanksgiving day/ weekend... so one of my main goals for this year was to participate in a 5k run/walk!! I DID IT!! Yeah!!!! I may have not been the fastest person... but I am so happy that I finally did it!! Two of my sisters did it with me... Tara and Brianne! Thanks guys!! Next year Erin and my Mom will participate with us!!!!

After our 5k we went over to the Larsen's home for Thanksgiving dinner!! Thanks for having us!! It was yummy!!!

So the day after Thanksgiving (Black Friday) I went shooting with some friends!! Boyd, Spencer, Taylor, Josh, Breba (I was so nervous she wasn't going to come... you know because of Black Friday...), Keith and Natalie!! It was really fun!! I was so proud of myself... the first two clay pigeons I totally hit them!! As Boyd puts it... own the gun Krista... hahaha!! I was pretty happy!! I also LOVE Breba's NEW pink gun!! Super fun to shoot!! Breba brought another computer screen and shot that up!! I would have to say she did quite the job!! That was so fun!!

That night we went to the see the temple lights and went to Organ Stop Pizza!!! If you have never gone to Organ Stop Pizza you NEED to make this a new tradition with your family or friends!! It's a ton of fun!!!!!

So after Organ Stop Pizza we went back to Dan's place and had a ping pong tournament... let's just say that I wasn't too thrilled with this... How come I HAD to play... but Ashley got out of this one???? Well, luckily my partner Josh gave me some lessons on how to play the game. I STILL SUCKED!! HAHAHA!!

And then we went to a party on Saturday night and Spencer thought he was going to freak out Ashley by putting his arm around her... but instead she did the opposite thing of freak out and put her hand on his inner thigh... hahaha!! Don't they just look like the pair!! hehe!!

Well I hope this satisfies any cravings for Krista time... hehe!! Until next time...
