Movie I can't wait to see...  

Posted by brookeaprilrain

Okay so maybe I can wait to see this movie.

This is one of the most watched previews of 2009, I think it came in 7th place. I think mostly for the sheer cheesiness of the movie title. The acting is bad too, which I think is a double combination...The triple threat would be to me if the movie showed them flying through space. Now THAT would prove to me that it's the best movie ever made (NOT!). I don't know where this came from, but I'm telling you!

As for the movies previews that are most watched, Twilight New Moon had the most previews. Just thought you'd like to know this... If you wanna see where this all comes from you can check here:

Came and Went  

Posted by brookeaprilrain

So, Christmas came and went with a blink of an eye. I don't look at Christmas the way I used to. As a kid you believe in the spirit of Christmas so much you're willing to believe anything and everything. I wouldn't say I'm wiser, but at this point I can at least say that I still believe in the spirit of Christmas, but I'm not as willing to believe in Everything.

I have much to be thankful for, and wonderful parents who are always there for me. I spent Christmas with them this year, and it was fun. My niece and nephews stopped in for a visit. Now that was fun, my niece Ambrea was singing and she kept making me sing. I can only sing "Jingle Bells" so many times before I want to stop, and she "bless her little heart" wanted to keep going. Oh man, I'm glad we stopped, but that will always be one of the great memories. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas this year. Gotta love Christmas!

So, I work for the most amazing company Yesterday a friend of mine received donations from Overstock because financially her family was having a hard time. The donations helped her give her kids more gifts than she had ever been able to give.

Next the other amazing thing, is the people I work with.

We decided a year ago to turn food donations into a competition between our warehouse, our customer service, and our corporate office. See below:

Even better, they put us on the news:

How amazing is that? We were also on Channel 2 News as well, and FYI the Corporate office won the competition. I'm just so proud to work for this company! It's Christmas time, and we should help each other out as much as we can.

Monday and not sure...

So, I went on a Date with a guy I'd been talking to online for 2 weeks. I really like him, but do you ever get that feeling that someone just isn't as in to you as you are to them? I'm not one to delude myself into thinking that he is, I can't explain it that might take too long. I'll just say, I'm gonna play it by ear and if he asks me out again SWEET! If not, then it's not a huge deal either. I just realize that I really need to date more, and get out there more. So, that's what I'm now going to. Interesting how a few months can change your perspective on dating...haha!

So, all in all it was a great date, he was super nice and that's all you can hope for. Right?

Date Tonight  

Posted by brookeaprilrain

So, tonight I have a date...I could always back out, because I'm nervous. However, I'm just gonna go through with it, you never know what will come of it. I found out also that my room mate is going to a Christmas Party at a friends singles ward, and all I could think was how jealous I was. Yeah I have a date, and I could bring him with me if I want, but wouldn't that be weird? Going to someone else's singles ward Christmas Party on a first date? haha, yeah no I don't think it would work. Oh well, we'll see what happens. I'll let you know on Monday how the date went...

Christmas Spirit  

Posted by brookeaprilrain

So, I love my ward, to help celebrate the spirit of Christmas all of the families were given a name of another family in the ward. It is then that families job to bring the spirit of Christmas to the family they were given. How cool is that? so, we made a plate of goodies, and this weekend we are going to take that over to them and sing Christmas Carols to them. Yeah it's only 3 of us in the house, but it's fun. Luckily I can at least carry a tune..haha. I'm already feeling bad for this family. Just kidding. I'm just excited, because really I can't think of another Cheap way to do something for a family other than this? Can you?

Guess what I did!!!!!?  

Posted by brookeaprilrain

I was a dork, I got into a fight at Cafe Rio with some lady. It was insanity, and I got a black eye after she slammed my face on the back of a chair. I have a cut under my eye, and it's starting to turn purple.

Don't worry though, becuase you should see what I did to her..

Oh well, that's actually not what happened. I dropped my badge, and basically rammed my eye into the back corner of this chair infront of me. I didn't see it because there was a black coat on the back of it...So, more than likely I'll get a black eye...right now I have a cut but I'm pretty sure there will be some black and blue coloring. Hooray for make up right?

Say it isn't SO!!! NOO!!!!  

Posted by brookeaprilrain

So, I found out...It's fully official. The Bonnie Hunt Show has been cancelled!!!! NO!

I'm so sad about this, because I love her show. I record it every day, and I love coming home to watch it. Next year her show will not be renewed, and they are going to probably air some stupid show with Kate Gosslin in it. I for sure will not watch just cause I can't stand her. Oh well, daytime TV and I will now be severed...guess that's not a bad thing. It's probably a good thing, it'll be one less show to record.

SNOW, snow, SNOW  

Posted by brookeaprilrain

Okay, So I love Looking at snow, but what I don't love is Driving in snow. I'm surprised work hasn't called a snow day yet. It's still snowing outside and I fear it will only get worse. One day every year we get a snow day, and it's always SO cool. Somehow I think this year they won't give in. Oh well....

So, last night I went to the Bombay House for Indian Food. On my way in I picked up a penny with the face up...I got sick. I'm not sure if it was the food, but basically I RAN out of there. I wasn't feeling too good. I'm pretty sure it wasn't the food though, but the sad thing is I missed most of the meal and Indian food is so amazing. Oh well, at least I have leftovers...I'll know after I eat the leftovers if that's what made me sick...

Crazy Story  

Posted by brookeaprilrain

So a friend of mine sent me this...Not sure if it is someone he knows, but I thought it was pretty funny.

Well, there is good news and bad news about my Christmas decorations.
The good news is that I truly outdid myself this year. The bad news is that I had to take them down after only two days. I had more people come screaming up to my house than ever. Great stories. But two things made me take it down. First, the cops advised me that it would cause traffic accidents as they almost wrecked when they drove by. Second, a 55 year old lady grabbed the ladder and almost killed herself putting it against my house and didn't realize it was fake until she climbed to the top (she was not happy). She was one of many people who attempted to do that. My yard couldn't take it either. I have more than a few tire tracks where people literally drove up my yard.

I think I made him too real this time. But it was fun while it lasted. ;)

So, I know I'm a little late in decorating this year, but when you have two other room mates it can make it difficult to figure out and agree upon what colors that we can all live with. So, we finally agreed up on red and gold. I couldn't stand having it be just Red so I convinced them to add gold. HOORAY. These are the colors...

Now if only I can get them to let us only use white lights, and a star on top of the tree we'll be set.

What are you doing for a Christmas Tree this year?

Friends Birthday  

Posted by brookeaprilrain

I'm a firm believer in celebrating a friends Birthday. So, when I saw my friend Leslie's desk this morning, I was a bit disappointed on how Sparse the desk was decorated. Therefore, when she left to to a meeting I took it upon myself to do the following to her desk.

This is what real friends do...

I also gave her this man

But she gave him back to me...oh well. If you want a fro haired guy let me know...I'm sure I can make the arrangements to send him your way.

Monday? No it's Wednesday

So, I got lucky and got two days off of work this week. Wait it wasn't a good thing, I was out sick. So, that's why I haven't written anything, my computer at home doesn't allow me to really add or do anything so I have to take a break at work and fill you in on the great happenings in my life.

So, I wanted to provide you with some pictures of a house I decorated last week. I'm only putting up 3 pictures, even though I have more. The reason is there is a book that will be published highlighting some of these areas I helped decorate.

So without further ado, here are the 3 pictures, and the cause of why I'm so sick...

Do you think my being sick was worth it?
