Cheyenne the Beautiful!

A few weeks ago my friend Julie invited me to come and visit her in Wyoming, she flew me up there and I got to spend a whole week with her and her daughter, Miss Abigail. I don't even know where to begin with this post because there is SOOOO much that I could talk about. I guess the beginning is a good place to start right?! LOL

Well first off, my flight out was a red-eye flight so I was able to get such a pretty picture of the Sunrise as I flew somewhere along the way to Denver, where Julie picked me up. I, of course, am from AZ so the "Tornado Shelter" sign in the airport came as a surprise to me, such a surprise that it deserved a picture. At least we know that the baggage is safe, right?! LOL The little picture of the buffalo, is a statue that you can see from the freeway right before you enter Wyoming.

While I was in WY, we went to the City Park Pool in Fort Collins, CO. Some of the MOPS (Mother's of Preschoolers) mom's from Julie's church met there and we had a TON of fun!! I LOVED the City Park Pool! It was unlike any pool I had ever seen before and was made for literally ALL ages. The water started out a couple inches deep and went down from there. Abby went down the blue slide and I'm glad I got a picture of it, because she only went down it once. LOL

One another day we adventured into Downtown Cheyenne. Whenever I think of state capitols I think of big cities with bright lights and tall buildings; Downtown Cheyenne was nothing like that at all. They kept the old town feeling and it fit the atmosphere of Wyoming perfectly. We took a LONG "stroll" in the downtown area. Just a note, if you ever go to Downtown Cheyenne, the Train Depot and the WY State Museum are not blocks apart, they are a couple miles apart. LOL Walking that far in the middle of the day, with a 3 year old was not the brightest idea. However I was able to get some fun pictures along the way; so at least it wasn't a really boring walk. ;) I loved all of the boots that were all over downtown, the one on the left side of this collage is called "Licensed to Boot" and it had little pieces of WY license plates on it! It was so much fun to see everything and I felt like your typical tourist taking all of the cliché pictures. LOL

Overall, the trip was just a lot of relaxation, we spent a lot of time hanging around the house and playing card games. I taught Julie how to play Hand and Foot. We played Texas Hold'em but didn't bet right because I don't play poker like at all and Julie had never played. So it was practically the blind leading the blind but it was fun!! We played Uno with the 0's twist and we threw in a couple games of Fricken' Fracken' Farkle here and there too! Just a side note, the "Dealer" chip is the most awesome chip for remembering who dealt last - go figure. You just have to make sure that you don't get a chip on your shoulder. ;)

Julie and I also painted our nails and unfortunately my camera doesn't take very good close up pictures, but let's just say that we used a lot of nail polish remover that night. I painted all of my fingernails a different color at least once and some of them even twice!! Here is what I ended up doing with my nails. I love Julie's nail stamps so I had to use them. Now my polish is chipping off just in time for the 4th of July, can't wait to do something fun for that! :)

I had such a blast in Cheyenne WY! It was great to see Julie and Miss Abigail, I loved hanging around the house and the simplicity of the trip was nice and relaxing. Just what the doctor ordered! I loved my vacation and can't wait until the next time I get to visit. :)

To Julie, thank you so much for the wonderful time! I definitely miss you and enjoyed spending every moment with you in Cheyenne. <3

The Nail Files!! 6/26/12

Yes, I am crazy and I am still up at 3:45am writing this blog post. LOL Might as well get'er done right?! LOL

This week I went to visit my friend Julie and I went through many colors and designs. I had all of my nails painted a different color at one point in time. But Julie has Konad stamps and I don't so I decided to do something with those. 

Here is the design that I did: 

The color is OPI's "Got the Blues for Red" and the stamp is one from Konad's M57 plate. I loved the way this turned out and I'm kind of sad that I will be taking it off in a few days so I can do something for the 4th of July. But at least it will be for something Patriotic! LOL

Then the week after next I will be in California with my mom and we are going to do pedicures there, so that should be a lot of fun! Lots of pictures to be taken that's for sure!!! :)

WOW, I just checked and my post is actually done before the link up is even up...LOL Why am I still awake?!

*sings* I'm leavin' on a jet plane!

I've never blogged in an airport before. So I thought I would post a quick blog post. For those who haven't heard, I am flying to WY to spend some time with my friend Julie. I am looking for to the girl time and just relaxing. :)

Creative Writing: Who said you had to hit the writing prompt on the head?!

   Okay so about a month ago our power went out. I had been sleeping a while so I decided to get up instead of rolling over and going back to sleep. Well with no power, I am like Totally “off the grid”. No power = no internet, no phone and no A/C. A/C was actually already beginning to be important in AZ. I realized that the longer I went without power. lol 

   I had my iPod, fully charged (YAY!), which has my music, some movies, and some books so there was a little bit that I could do without power. I opened my Kindle app and realized the last book that I had open was a writing prompt book. I thought “Oh how fun, I’ll write!” So I did. The following is one of the prompts that I did and somewhere in the middle of writing it, I decided that it should be a blog post. lol 

Writing Prompt: You have been sent back in time (to kindergarten) and you have the ability to change your entire schooling experience. How do you change the next 16 years of your life to make your life better? Does it work or do you lose some of the flavor along the way?

   Well personally I wouldn’t change elementary school. I loved my classes and my teachers. I had one teacher, Mrs. Clegg, for 3 different years (Kindergarten, 5th and 6th grade). She was by far my favorite teacher and I was very sad to leave 6th grade because I knew that I would probably never see her again. I know that you aren’t really supposed to be friends with your teachers (unless you want to be called a Teacher’s pet) but by the end of 6th grade, I felt like she was a friend that I was saying “Goodbye” to. I remember crying the most over knowing that I wasn’t going to see her again. I did find her on Facebook a year or so ago. Even though I don’t talk to her much, I like just knowing that she is there.

   When I went into junior high my mom MADE me go to this private Christian school. I remember fighting with her because I wanted to continue on to a public junior high with all of my friends from elementary school. I told her “I won’t know anybody at this school.” Well, we settled on a compromise. I would go to this junior high and then I could pick which high school to attend. I got there the first day and realized that I knew everyone (It was a very small school) because I had just gone to Bible camp with them over the summer. 

   It was at this school that I made two of my best friends in the whole world; literally because one of them (Sarah) is going to be a Baptist missionary in the Congo. Sarah, Rachel and I have shared so many memories. We have had our silly moments, our serious moments, have gone on so many adventures and share so many inside jokes it’s not even funny. These are two women that I will always be friends with – probably cuz we know too much about each other. Again, I really don’t keep in touch like I should but I know that they are there and whenever we do see each other we pick up right where we left off like no time has past at all. They aren’t just friends, they are my sisters. 

   Rachel is the sister that will put you in your place when you need that dose of reality. She will pick you up when you fall but she will be laughing because she warned you that would something would happen. lol Sarah is the sister that always just wants to make sure that you are okay. Life wouldn’t be complete without either of them. So in the end, I wouldn’t change junior high either. 

   My first year of high school I moved to Idaho, so again my mom put me in a private Christian school – which was okay with me because moving to a new state was bad enough – let alone picking a high school. lol This school is something that I would’ve changed. Even though it was a “Christian” school I felt like an outcast there. I made some friends that I still keep in touch with on Facebook, but overall I didn’t like the experience. I might’ve been better off just going to a public high school. 

   After my first year there I decided that I didn’t want to go back and because of my experience there I was scared to go to a public high school. After all, I was shy and kind of an outcast and we have all seen how the shy kids are treated on TV shows. I decided to home-school instead. This is what I would change. To this day, I always regret not having gone to an actual high school. I feel like I missed out on some fundamental parts of life. I never went to a prom, I never had the opportunity to be grossed out in Biology class, I never dated anyone or had my heart broken (maybe that’s a good thing) but the one thing that I regret the most is that I never had an official graduation. I got my GED but never the opportunity to wear a cap and gown, and walk to receive my diploma. If I could go back, I would go to a public high school. I would face my fears and take my chances. I would deal with the peer pressure, the heart break and yes even the Biology dissections….ewww. 

   I know the prompt is probably just meant for K-12 but life (and schooling) doesn’t end after high school – no matter what you think when you’re 18. After high school I moved again, this time to AZ…on July 4th. Ick! Note to self: Never move to AZ in July. All I can say is “YAY for movers!” That Fall I started college at a Bible College in Tempe, AZ. This is also a choice I wouldn’t change for the world. It was there that I met Andy. Andy was a lot of firsts in my life: first true love, first date, first kiss and my first (hopefully only) husband. 

   Even though I only went to college for a year, that year was the most pivotal point in my life. If I hadn’t gone to that college, I wouldn’t have met the most wonderful man in my life. Without meeting him, who knows where I would’ve ended up – it could’ve been anywhere. If I had not met Andy at college there are other people that I am sure I wouldn’t have ever met. I probably wouldn’t have ended up in the job that I have today. I probably would’ve never played WoW, which resulted in meeting Jill, Mat (aka Donald), and Danny. I probably wouldn’t have ended up going to the church that I go to and meeting Julie and Crystal. All of these experiences stem from the choice of what college I went to. 

   My life would not be complete without my husband, without the people from my work (who aren’t co-workers, they are family), without Jill, Mat (aka Donald) and Lil’ Andy, without Tom, Julie and Miss Abigail, and without Jed, Crystal and their whole gang of Smithlings. My life would be so different and I honestly don’t think it would be better. 

   So I didn’t exactly hit the writing prompt on the head. But maybe I wasn’t supposed to – I had bigger and better things to write about. 

   To all of the people that I mentioned, Mrs. Clegg, Sarah, Rachel, Andy, my MCC family, Jill and Mat (aka Donald), Danny, Tom and Julie, and Jed and Crystal, you all mean the world to me. I may not say it (or say it enough) but life wouldn’t be the same without you. Each one of you holds a special place in my heart. No matter where you go, no matter what you do, no matter where life may take you, please always know that you have each made a great impact in my life and I thank you for that. I will never forget you and I will always keep my memories of you close to my heart. <3

Things I've Learned from Gossip Girl

Your best friends stick by your side, no matter what you do. 

If you love someone, you will fight for them.

If you REALLY love someone, you will let them go. 

Sometimes you make bad choices and sometimes 
your choices are even worse.

Only someone who really knows you can the see
 the consequences of your actions before you do. 

Family (and friends who are like family) are the most 
important people in your life. 

Even a “bad boy” can end up being good and 
a “good boy” can end up being bad.

Having integrity is very important and can get you far in life.

Sometimes your “perfect match” is the person you least expect. 

Life changes – very drastically over a relatively short amount of time. 

A person’s personality is developed through a series of phases
 – is it not developed overnight. 

Sometimes bad choices can lead to great and wonderful 
adventures that end up being exactly what you need.

Things are not always as they seem.

Sometimes your heart must be broken in order for you to move on. 

You can create a name for yourself. 

To have great power, you must first have great confidence in yourself.

Tragedy draws everyone closer together. 

It’s okay to love shoes, sometimes it is the only way to find a prince. 

Everyone has one complicated, emotionally-draining, epic love. 
It’s one person that you are always drawn back to, 
no matter how many times you try to let go. <3

You know you love me, XOXO ;)

The Nail Files - 6/15/12

Ok Ladies, I have been having issues with my nails this week. I posted my cute Smiley Face nails last week. And this week I have had NYC's Pink Promenade Creme on my nails. It's been cute and it is a pretty color but it has been chipping and chipping and chipping. I think I have had to repaint my nails like 3 times this week. So no pics of my nails today. :( 

Instead I will call upon the nail guru's. I have two questions for you gals that I would like your opinions on.

First: What do you do to keep your nail polish from chipping, especially if it's only been like one day after you paint your nails?

Second: I am going to California in July and I would like to know if you guys have any ideas for a cute nail design that I could do on my toes. Or I would like to know what color that you like to wear to the beach. 

If you missed my smiley faces last week, here is a picture of them. And here is the link to last Friday's post too - it's got a picture of my toes. :)

Hopefully I will have better luck with my nail polish next week!! I am going to Wyoming to visit my friend who is also my nail polish buddy. So we should be able to come up with something pretty fun!!! :)

Your slightly frustrated nail artist,

Some of My Favorites - YouTube Style

So I have decided that I love YouTube. I think anyone that actually posts videos of themselves on YouTube is completely awesome. I am the opposite of awesome. LOL Ok not really, but I do have this fear of an audience - even if it's just an online audience. So for now I will stick to blogging and posting an occasional karaoke song where I make the video in power point and add just my singing track...LOL Currently my channel only has two videos but I plan on adding more soon.

That being said, I wanted to share a few of my favorite channels with you. Now, some of the channels that I like may not be for everyone. Some of the people that post videos use cuss words and some are just strange but they are all quirky just like me. :)

So without further a-do here are some channels that I like. Note: they are in no particular order - well except maybe Toby Turner - cuz he is awesome lol.

Toby Turner: He just plain Rocks! He's funny and comes up with some great videos like "Cute, Win, Fail" and I simply love his vlog too! He is full of energy, talks a thousand miles a minute and is usually pretty clean language wise. :) He has got so many channels, I can think of 3 right off the top of my head and those are the three that I follow which are: Tobuscus, Cute Win Fail (CWF), and his Vlog. I know he's also got a gaming channel called Toby Games and maybe another one too but I'm not sure.

Tobuscus - This is his main channel and it's got most of his work that's just all jumbled up, from Literals to CWF and Music videos.

Cute Win Fail - If you fall in love with his Cute, Win, Fail videos but don't want to see the Literals and other songs/videos that he does on his main channel, this channel is for you!!

Vlog - Toby has always got so much going on, and even when he doesn't just listening to him ramble on about absolutely nothing is rather comical too. LOL

Charlie McDonnell: I found Charlie's channel "Charlie is so Cool-like" and fell in love with it! He doesn't post as often as some other YouTuber's but he's got some good videos. After I found his channel I very quickly found out that he's from the UK and is in a band called Chameleon Circuit; his band makes Doctor Who music and it's awesome!! It feeds my geeky side. ;) 

Charlie is so Cool-like - His channel is mainly Vlog style but he does some fun videos too. I like his "Fun Science" and his "Challenge Charlie" videos. There is also one called How to Speak English and another called How to Speak American. I think these two videos are hilarious! (Note: These two videos have a tiny bit of language in them but overall his channel is very family friendly.)  :)

Calling Nail Art Lovers!: If you want to know where I get most of my ideas, they are usually found on YouTube. LOL There are a few different channels that I follow and I love them all! 

 Cute Polish - This channel is honestly where I get the majority of my ideas. Her designs are really, really simplistic and EASY! Most of them are ones that you can do even if you're a beginner. 

Pixie Polish - She has got some great designs too; hers are a little more complex than Cute Polish but they are still super cute!  

Robin Moses - Her channel is unique because she is painting other people's nails. Honestly, I don't think I could ever do her designs to such lengths on my own nails, but it is still really fun to watch and get ideas. :) 

Joe Penna (aka Mystery Guitar Man): I love his videos. He does stop-motion/looping music videos. Most of the videos that he does are either done in front of a green-screen, or done with various items around the house. Sometimes it's actually items like a microwave and pots and pans; he also has a "mini-Joe" band that appears every once in a while. ;) 

Here are a few of his videos that I really like. If you like them be sure to check out his channel at Mystery Guitar Man.

Car Jacker Fail: This one he used a car to to create a looping song - pure Awesome! 

Tiny Joe's!!!: I <3 Tiny Joe's. :)  

Looping Around: In this video he used things that were found around an apartment to create a song. I love this one too! :)

W A R N I N G: The following channels are not meant for little ears. Sometimes I wonder if they are even meant for big ears, but I still find some of their stuff to be really funny!! LOL 

Here are a few other channels that I follow but they are NOT family friendly. They do use expletives (some more than others) and some of them are a little strange. If none of that bugs you, then feel free to check them out. If you don't like cussing, or off color humor, then skip these and let me know what you do like in the comment section below.

Jenna Marbles (Jenna Mourey) - She is very random, from Vlog style, to "How-To" videos. One of my favorite videos is called "How Diets Work". Note: Jenna swears a LOT - just warnin' ya. 

Philip DeFranco - The Philip DeFranco Show is Philip talking "about the stuff that matters to me [him] today." He talks about the latest news stories, gives some of his opinions, and asks his viewers for theirs. I tell ya, I would much rather watch his show than the actual news channels. First, his show is funny and second, the other news channels are just depressing. 

Nick Foti - Soundly Awake is by far the most interesting channel that I have found. Nick can do all sorts of accents and has used them to create different characters for his channel. Most of the characters are women and the majority of them are played by him. So...yeah... Nuff said. He also has a beauty channel. I've never met a guy that actually buys Birchboxes, let alone one that does a video blog about them. LOL YAY, for not being afraid to break the "norm."


So I hope I have broadened your YouTube horizons and that you found some channels that amuse you and make you laugh. I would love to know what channels you watch on YouTube. Comment below and let me know which ones you watch! :)

Your YouTube Lover, 
         Jessy <3

You have posted a new video!

Ok, so the theme this week is You Tube!! There is another post coming soon about what channels that I like. But first, I wanted to just quickly let everyone know that I have a new video on my YouTube channel. :) I did a cover of Adele's song, Hiding My Heart, which was my song of the month for May 2012.

I think I may try to do a cover for all of my 101 in 1001 songs of the month. We shall see...I guess it just depends on which song I pick for the month. There are just some styles that I can't pull off. LOL You never want to hear this white girl rap that's for sure. ;)

My YouTube channel is very lonely so I am really going to try and add more videos. Hopefully you will be seeing more video posts very soon! :)

O also, if you guys have any ideas for songs that I could do, let me know!! :)

The Nail Files - 6/10/12

Ok, so I know I am a few days late on posting this, but the truth is, I didn't even paint my nails until Thursday night. Then I spent Friday hangin' at a friends house. My design this week was simple, even though it took about an hour for a design to jump out at me. LOL 

I did both my nails and my toes yellow with little smiley faces. I thought it turned out pretty cute, however trying to draw a smiley face upside down was very interesting...LOL 


Anyway, here's what they turned out like. I hope you like them. Next month I am heading to California, if you have any fun beach ideas, let me know. :)

Book Review - The Book Thief 

This book is the first book for the book club that I joined so I read it within a month's time. Which is amazing for me, since I'm still reading Dracula that started back in October 2011. LOL I guess a time limit is a very good thing for me. LOL

Here is the description of the book as told on the back cover: 

"It’s just a small story really, about among other things: a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. . . .

Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak’s groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement before he is marched to Dachau. This is an unforgettable story about the ability of books to feed the soul."

Many of the books that I've read are written in a first-person format as someone is telling their story. Very rarely have I found a book that is narrated by someone who is overlooking all parts of every situation. I have never encountered a book that was narrated by Death. In this book Death is portrayed as a person who is narrating, rather than a thing that happens - so you get to hear his side of the story as well. 

This book was hard for me to get into and felt a little slow. But I stuck it out and read the whole book and you know what? I am so glad that I did. 

Liesel is one of the main characters in the book and she is "The Book Thief." She is a little girl who watched her little brother die and fights with her nightmares about the event every night. She is brought into a foster home with a mom who is very strict and dad who is very loving; he teaches her to read and write. The little family is very poor, but Liesel loves her books so much that she resorts to stealing to get another one. 

Another thing that I thought was very unique about this book was the fact that it was written from a German's perspective during WWII. There are all sorts of books about the Jews and their tribulations during WWII but very rarely do you hear about what the Germans were going through. Believe it or not they suffered too, and not all of the Germans were bad. In this story, Leisel's family was comprised of some of the good Germans.

Since this book is narrated by Death, I will tell you that it does not have a fairy-tale ending. To tell you the truth I cried like a baby, I needed tissues and everything. However, reading this book made me realize just how powerful words are and how much a book can be good for your soul. I got very inspired to write my own book just so that I would be able to share that power and inspiration with someone else.

Even though The Book Thief can be hard to get into and doesn't have a fairy-tale ending, it is one that I would recommend. It helped me not only see the power of words but also the goodness that can be found in people.

Things I've Learned From Glee 

It’s okay to be a “loser.”

Your true friends love you no matter what! 

A little self-confidence will go a long way. 

Some stars may shine a little brighter than others, 
but they are all still stars and each of them does shine. 

You must band together in order to stay strong. 

It’s not how you look on the outside that matters;
it’s what on the inside that counts.

Your arch-nemesis can sometimes turn out to be your best ally. 

Life throws you curve-balls that you could never expect. 

Music is the best and most powerful way to express your emotions. 

The best parent is the one that accepts their child for who they are, 
not for what they wish their child would become. 

Loves comes in all sorts of different shapes and sizes. 

Sometimes your wildest dreams can come true.

Everyone has that one crazy person that likes to cause drama. 
Isn’t it great when they leave? (aka Terri Schuester) 

True love is worth waiting for. 

Sometimes you just have to dress like Gaga in order
to show how much you support someone. 

You can find friends in the most unlikely places.

Sometimes campaign posters need unicorns
and the prom theme must be dinosaurs!

Some people crack under pressure;
others withstand it and become diamonds.

You should never be afraid to just be who you are.
