Well everyone, I just had the most amazing and fantastic week EVER!!!!!!!!!!!! On Tuesday, when Jonah first got here, we came straight home (after King's of course) and hung out for the rest of the evening. Sister Melinda and her kids were here, and then later on that night Wayne and Angela came over. Wednesday, we went to the mall and then had church later on where he got to meet all the wonderful people I've been telling him about for nine months, and been chomping at the bit to introduce him to!

Thursday, we went to Niagara Falls and Hibachi, which were GREAT as always! Friday, we went to the Erie beach which was soooooo cold, but fun anyways! Saturday, we hung around the house for a while, Dad and Jonah talked some, and then we walked to Corkey's and got some ice cream. After we got ice cream, Elissa drove us to Drake Well to take some pictures, then we got my awesome baby cousin, Madeleine, and went up to the church. Jonah and I cleaned the sanctuary while Dad, Dakota, and Jared were outside doing yard work. No, Jonah isn't afraid of hard work, but he was in a white shirt;) Then, after the church was cleaned, we went home and had AWESOME sausage, gravy, and biscuits, and hung out at the house for the rest of the night. It was awesome!!

Big Fire at Hibachi's....they pour a bunch of oil on the grill and set it on fire.

Drake Well

Sunday was Easter, so we had our Easter dinner at Cross Creek after church. It ended up just being my mom, Elissa, Jonah, my aunt and uncle, Madeleine, and me. It was a lot of fun! Sunday night was church, and afterwards was Sister Melinda's surprise 40th birthday party, and yes, I did just tell everyone your age;) figured you could use a good support system during this time!!!! Monday was spent doing absolulely NOTHING, (except going to Walmart and running all over the hillside trying to find some stupid self-adhesive, protective lining envelopes!!! We bought out CVS AND Rite Aid!!! And no one else had anymore!) Oh, and we also had company too! My grandparents and the Kregiels came over for dinner, and oh boy was it ever good!! Lasagna with all kinds of desserts and garlic bread....OH! And I can't forget the PEPPERCORN!!!

Tuesday of course was the very sad day that Jonah went home. Overall, I think we both did pretty well. The only thing that hasn't been good with me, is I have been EATING like CRAZY!!!! I keep saying, "I need to stop eating!" but then I just pick up another piece of cheesecake to shut myself up. It's TERRIBLE!!! And I don't understand WHY I've been eating. I'm not even hungry, just feel like eating food!:-/ Well anyways, I just thought I would let my bloggie friends know what's going on with me. I will talk to ya'll later!

I believe I have officially gone off my rocker! But then, most of you probably already knew that! It's been 9 months since I met Jonah, and I haven't seen him since then (obviously.) Well we found out back in February that he was going to be visiting, and we started the "countdown" at 63 days, exactly 9 weeks before the date he is to arrive. Weeelllll, as you can see from the countdown on the side of my page, only about a day and a half to go!!!!! He's getting here early Tuesday evening. One of the guys in my church, Wayne, was sooooo kind to allow Jonah to stay with him! When he's here we'll be going to Niagara Falls. Hopefully we don't go to Canada this time!!!! Well, we'll be with Dad, so I don't think we'll have to worry about that! Mom tends to be the one that gets lost;) Oh and we'll be going to Hibachi! Hopefully we can get some good pics of how they cook the food and make "Big Fire" so you all that have never been there can see! It's AMAZING!!! Anyways, back ot the point! Because I'll be pretty busy having fun (sorry to everyone that has to work! Muahahahahaha!!!! :p) I probably won't be posting the whole time Jonah's here. Soooo until next time, Adios!!! See ya later alligator!! Hasta La Vista! (hopefully that's right) Talk to you later! Bye bye now!;)

All alone!:'( *sniff*

Alone--the feeling that no one cares. The feeling that you're the only person in the world. Feeling like no matter what you go through, what you say, what happens, you'll be all alone, with no one to care about you.

No matter the good, you won't be recognized, and even if it's bad, you won't be reprimanded. You'll be, to put it matter-of-factly, invisible. Even if you cry out, it's like no one hears you. When you speak, it's as if the people around you are deaf to your words.

That's the feeling I have as I post today. It's been weeks, and a recurring feeling shows up several times a day. My heart begins to race in anticipation, only to have my hopes shattered, and thrown to a merciless wind that carries them away. Does anyone else get this feeling??

Well, I know my mom does. She once posted about it on her blog as well, here. I hope now that you all, as my good friends and family, are wanting to know what it is that I'm so alone about. And hopefully, because you all love me, you'll want to help me feel like I'm not the only person in the world. Well, what I'm so upset and lonely about, is the fact that I get no..............


People don't ever stop to give love to my blog!! Often times, I get all worked up anticipating just ONE comment, but alas, there are none. It saddens me beyond understandabilty!

Things I love to smell

First of all I would like to say "thank you" to Mary for tagging me! I was soooo looking for something to blog about but I couldn't figure it out! This it the perfect blog post!:-D ok, on to things I love to smell!! Oh and btw, you inspired me Mary!! I'm styling this post after yours. I'm pretty much a bland blog poster so I'm trying to spice it up a bit!:-D

1. Fresh spring air!

There's just this AMAZING scent in spring air. It SMELLS like spring!!!

2. My perfume!!!

I'm not trying to be conceited or anything, but I wear Charlotte Russe and it's smells FABULOUS!!!! One of my VERY FAVORITE smells!!!

3 Kittens!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the smell of kittens!!!! I don't know what the smell is, but they have this scent about them until they're like 6 months old and I just LOVE it!

4. COLOGNE!!!!

I've never smelled the Chrome Cologne that Mary mentioned, but there are a LOT of other colognes that I just LOVE to smell!! Ooooh and I love the Estee Lauder's aftershave. it's called Beyond Paradise. It. Smells. So. GOOD! And I TOTALLY agree with Mary when she says guys immediately look better when they smell good! It also makes a guy classier, in my opinion, when they wear good-smelling cologne.

5. SLEEP!!!

Oh wait, sleep doesn't smell!! Sure would be nice if it did though cuz I would smell it until it completely consumed me!!!! I hate not being able to sleep, especially days like today when I wake up really early when I wish I could be sleeping!

Man! Do you know how hard this is coming up with things I like to smell??? Anyways, pardon the brief moment of being side-tracked.

6. Roses

I sooooooo love the smell of fresh roses!!!! The first dozen roses I ever got was from my dad for my 15th birthday. I left them in a vase on my dresser and every time I walked into my room I could smell the roses. It was AWESOME having that as an air freshener!

7. Undescribable, see below

Weelll, I'm not quite sure how to describe this smell, but it's on that I'm very familiar with. It's a smell that any Apostolic girl who's gone to camps or conferences and stayed with other girls knows. It's a mix of hairspray, perfume, toothpaste, and steam from an ironing board. I LOVE IT!:-D

8. Herbal Essences Hydrating shampoo and conditioner

I really can't describe how it smells!! you would just have to try it to find out how it smells:-D oh, and it works GREAT on smoothing out my hair.

9. Bread!

I love the smell of freshly baked rolls, or bread! It smells sooooooo good!!!

And finally, we arrive at numero 10! Please forgive my warped sense of humor, anyone who's reading this!

10. Deer steak

I looooooovvvvveeee the smell of deer steak!!! Like seasoned deer steak frying in the skillet...oooo my mouth is watering already!!!!! It's SO good!!!

Oooh I forgot the most important part of this blog game! I need to tag some people. Soooo....

I didn't tag many people, but I hope you all will participate in this little game!

Happy blogging to you all!

Soooo, today I learned how to make pancakes!!! Like whenever I tried to make them and I would try to flip them over, I would make a HUGE mess and it wouldn't EVER turn out right!!! Well like two weekends ago, we went to King's Restaurant, which is a family owned, chain restaurant in this area. My mom got some vanilla custard filled pancakes or something like that. Weeelll, the thought struck me for a NEW recipe for pancakes and I've been just DYING to make them!!!! Soooo, today, my mom taught me how to actually MAKE the pancake, and I made the filling to put between them, and IT WAS SO, SO, SO, SO GOOD!!! They were THE BEST pancakes I've EVER HAD!!!!!! So now that I've taunted you with telling you about how good they were, you're just chomping at the bit to know what the filling is that I made, right??? Weeellll, I don't have an exact recipe yet cuz I just threw it together, but all I used was cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla. I warmed the cream cheese up for like 15 seconds so it would be soft, just dumped in some sugar, and then poured some vanilla in. Then I mixed it all up with the mixer, and it was soooooo delicious!!! I spread it on top of the first pancake, and then put the second pancake on top of it. Then I spread some more of the cream cheese mix on top of the upper pancake, and poured syrup over it all. My mouth is watering AGAIN just thinking about it!!!! If anyone tries this out, PLEASE tell me how it was and how you liked it!!!! Thank you!!:D

My parents

This is so totally random, but I just have to tell the world!!! I have the best parents ever!!! Like seriously!!!! Mom, Dad, I LOVE YOU!!!!!!! My parents are just wonderful! They are caring and understanding, the don't expect me to be something I'm not, they listen when I need to talk, they're fun and loving, they don't yell and fight, and they treat me respectfully. As goofy as my dad is, he's one of the best people I know! He's so calm and relaxed, don't get upset about like ANYTHING. He's soooo crazy though!! There are times when I would like to act like I DO NOT know him, but I guess that's what makes him--HIM!! We always have TONS of fun together, which is probably because we're so much alike. He's just flat-out AWESOME! And he's an amazing dad!! Something I never realized when I was younger, but am starting to realize now, is my dad knows pretty much everything, about pretty much everything. There are few things that you could ask my dad "What does this mean?" or "What is that?" and he wouldn't be able to give you a very clear and informative answer. He's a TOTAL history buff! He loves history, and he loves to tell stories about it. And he's not like a "proper and just the facts" type of story teller, if that makes sense. He makes boring stories into REALLY interesting stories!! (I think he gets that from my grandpa, cuz he's the same way;)) And then there's my mom. Where, oh where, do I start talking about my mom?? Well, I guess I could start by saying she is very, very wise! She knows a lot about a lot, but not the same way as my dad. She has a common sense that stays clear and focused. If you ask her for advice she will give you solid advice, and not just something off the top of her head. She's one of the best wives I've ever seen!! She's loving, and she's a perfect example of what women should be when they get married. And she's an AWESOME mother!! I can't tell you how many times I've been upset and she's hugged me and made me feel better. Oooh and she's a GREAT cook!!!! Today, she made THE BEST crock-pot chicken I've EVER had!!! I would say the best chicken, but FRIED CHICKEN IS THE BEST!!!! I love fried chicken so much I could be Colonel Sanders!! Anyways, back to my beautiful Mama!! Something else that I've noticed about her, that I never noticed when I was younger, is how much of a lady and how graceful she is. She's very proper, she cares herself in a lady-like manner, and she is graceful in any situation. THAT my friends is what I wanna be when I grow up!

Five Question Friday

1. Have you ever had surgery? Nope, sure haven't, thankfully!! Probably gonna have to have foot surgery in a few years tho:( 2. Ever ride in an ambulance? Again, nope!!! 3. How are you in a medical emergency? Panicked? Calm? I think I'm relatively calm. It's been a while. I think I'm calm on the outside, but I worry and get really panicked on the inside. I just feel like sitting down and crying usually. 4. Do you have a garden? Flowers or veggies? We have flower beds in the front of the house, and we were supposed to have a vegetable garden last year, but that didn't end up happening. We may have a veggie garden this year, though. 5. When did you move out of your parents house? Currently still live with my parents. Unless I end up being a 30 year old single woman, I don't plan to move out until I get married, or unless my parents decide I need to move.
