Where is the Magic?

I don't have a good intro into this so I'll just say it right out. Pixar movies suck! With the exception of maybe two or three (UP), I am annoyed whenever I watch one. They usually just have stupid plots, slap happy obnoxious not funny humor, and a rap at the end. GAG ME! So what the heck happened to the magic of childhood. What happened to the magic of Disney?  What happened to Peter Pan, and Cinderella, and Prince Charming. What would those movies be like if they were made in our day? Cinderella making stupid jokes and Peter Pan and Captain Hook sharing in a rap duet at the end! They would be awful! So why do they think the movies they have today are any good? Cause I guess that is where we have come to as a society. The magic of childhood is fading away, and stupid humor and dumb raps are taking their place. So where is the magic? Peter Pan knows. "The second star to the right and straight on till morning."

"So come with me, where dreams are born, and time is never planned. Just think of happy things, and your heart will fly on wings, forever, in Never Never Land!"

Ok! Recently I have fallen in love with Zumba. Literally I think I am in love with it. My friend Dayna from work introduced me to it, and now I can't get enough. I don't even know what to do with myself on the days I don't have Zumba. It's like my life isn't complete without it.

On another note, I have come to the conclusion that I man is not worth dating unless I am willing to miss my Zumba class for him. So far I haven't found anyone even close to worthy! I LOVE Zumba.

 (And my man can never actually see me DO Zumba!)

Conquer and Change

Sometimes I often wonder why some people always have to learn the hard way. Or they tend to run away from their problems instead of facing them. I know that when you constantly run away from trials and problems and never really figure out what you're supposed to learn, the Lord will keep giving you trials like that until you learn and change what you need to. So in reality you are not really running away from are really just prolonging it in some shape or form. Just something I have been thinking about. So important to always step back and ask yourself what the Lord could possibly want me to learn, and conquer it and become a better person. :) Just a random thought of know.... to keep my blog going.....

I HATE crows!!! They have physically attacked me twice in my life and I think it has left me scarred for life. They aren't just birds that hop around and mind their own business. When you get close to one they look at you as if to challenge you. If you move an inch closer they ruffle up their feathers and start cawing! They are scary! So why in the heck did these pictures start popping up all over Pinterest?

These creep me out in a big way. Why can't crows be just like normal birds? EVIL!

Only Very Few

Can I just say that in all seriousness there are probably numerous reasons as to why I am single. However, we all have faults, even the married friends. But at age 28 it's hard not feeling like the leftovers of the leftovers.....and we all know what happens to those! Dipping into my somewhat irrational feelings now and again, it is nice when a boy comes along that sees me as much more than that. A boy who is able to look through my outer outgoing, bubbly, funny self and sees my heart. Someone who recognizes the gifts I have that are unique to me and truly sees the depth of my heart. I am grateful that once in a blue moon, there are those that come, and see me as so much more. To them I am grateful. To my Heavenly Father I am grateful for sending them to me! Please bless that maybe you can send them more often???

Tutti Frutti!

So one of my brothers (name has been witheld) REALLY likes the Little Richie song Tutti Frutti! Since Reese and I have totally different taste in music than him, we often ask him about the songs he likes and how he could possibly like this particular song. (He doesn't like our music either, so it's fair) So we asked him what that song even means. It sounds like ridiculous gibberish. I like songs that stir emotions in can that happen when it makes utterly no sense at all. So one night I thought I would Google the meaning of the song. Maybe some wise person out in the cyber world could make some sense of such nonsense. Well after a little research I came upon this take on it. Maybe it's not really that funny, but for some reason it had us 3 rolling and crying for the rest of the night. Well....just read it.

"Tutti frutti" is the American name for Neopolitan icecream.

"Oh rutti" is a corruption of the French "en route" which means "on the way".

So the first verse sings like so,

Neopolitan icecream, on the way,
Neopolitan icecream, on the way,
Neopolitan icecream, on the way,
Neopolitan icecream, on the way,
Neopolitan icecream, on the way,

Then we get to the line,
"A wop bop a loo bop a lop bam boo"

A "wop bop" is obviously an Italian dance.

"A loo bop" is a dance in the toilet.

So Little Richard is singing about an Italian dance in the toilet.

"A lop bam boom" is obviously complete gibberish.

Enough said!

Just a Little

I think that Megan is the only one who reads my blog. Just throwing that out there.

On to my original thoughts... I love to see how people react to my comments when they don't really know me. So last night our ward ate at the temple cafeteria. As I was walking to the registers the two workers that were tallying up the meals were sitting there and asked me if I was one of the "singles" from the singles group. My response, "Don't I look single?" They both chuckled and said yes. Then I said, "Oh you CAN see that desperate look in my eyes?" They were both laughing so hard as I walked off. Sometimes I am unsure if I am too inappropriate for the temple, or whether it was just good that I brought a smile to their faces.

Ta Da!!!

Ok so I think that if I actually announce this that maybe I will actually try and follow through on this. Not that I wouldn't. I almost always achieve what I set my mind to. But this one is going to take a lot of time and energy. Here we go!!! Are you ready for the big announcement!!!!

I want to train to run a half marathon by the end of the summer.

I am thinking I want to run the Bear Lake Half. It's a big commitment. I have only ever run about 5 miles at any given time. But it is my goal for this year. So we shall see how it goes!
