Taco Night (take two)

Good morning!!!!

First of all, I would like to thank everyone for stopping by to say happy birthday yesterday! =D Thanks, Janae for the birthday shout-out!!!! I had an awesome day!! We hung out at home, then went out to eat and rented a movie to watch! =D

So tonight, we’re going to go to my dad’s side of the family’s house to celebrate a late Christmas and to eat tacos! =D We were originally going to go a few days before Christmas, but my aunt was sick, so we postponed. She’s feeling much better now, and we decided to get together tonight! =D It’ll be fun!!!!


Oh I have a question for ya’ll. Some friends gave both my sister and me a Nook for Christmas. Its sort of like the Amazon Kindle, but Barnes and Noble makes it. Anyway, since I live out of the country most of the time, I have no idea what books to get. What are some good books that you’ve read recently? I’ve already downloaded John Grisham’s latest, “The Confession”, because I had already read some of his books before. Its pretty good!

Oh last night I tried Edy’s Apple Pie Ice Cream, and it was ok, but I think I’ll stick with good old Double Fudge Brownie from now on. Apple Pie had like chunks of cinnamon apples and pie crust in vanilla ice cream. So really it wasn’t very pie-like in flavor….mostly just vanilla. Not bad, but in my world, chocolate trumps vanilla everytime. =D Just a matter of personal preference,I guess.

Well, I have to get going….

Happy Wednesday! =D

Birthday Workout

Good morning!!!!

Yes, I’m working out on my birthday. Wanna know why? It is Tuesday. I workout on Tuesdays. Creature of habit and all. I probably need to work on the whole flexibility thing.

Well, anyway, in honor of my birthday, I chose some new vids, so here are the links:

Booty Burn: (its Cindy Whitmarsh, and I have loved all of her workouts so far)

Sculpt and Burn:

And one of the 10 minute cardio workouts….I haven’t decided yet.

So I really have no idea what I’m going to be doing today….except go out to eat……..and eat ice cream. I’ve never been a big fan of birthday cake….I mean, I’ll eat it, but I was the one with the giant chocolate chip cookie instead of a cake. Or fondue. Or in today’s case, ice cream. And maybe some chocolate something or another…because surprisingly, my ice cream has absolutely NO chocolate in it. But it’s Apple Pie ice cream, which sounded good.

ICE CREAM!!!!!!!!!!

Do you like birthday cake, or do you eat some other sweet on your birthday?

I’ve already had my party, so today’s just going to be relaxed, I think. I might even read the driver’s manual at some point (ack!). I have to take that test before January 11th….so I’ll probably just end up spending the day in my pjs studying. Fun stuff. I honestly have no idea why anyone even reads this blog, seeing as I’m so incredibly boring. But you do, and as long as someone reads this, I’ll be here. =D

Well, I should probably get going…..what with my busy schedule, I just don’t know what to do first today! =D

Happy Tuesday!

Party Fun Stuff

This post will be quick because I can barely think straight, and when I mix sleepiness and blogging, its not pretty.

Last night was super-duper fun! We had Jimmy John’s (I got the Turkey Tom unwich), and then lots and lots of fondue! Played Apples to Apples and watched part of a movie. Bought popsicles and a pint of Blue Bell Vanilla w/ strawberries ice cream. We randomly made a trip to the workout room at 11 PM, just for the heck of it. Consumed lots and lots of caffeine. Scared the other people staying at the hotel. Lots of fun! =D

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!!!!!! I promise that tomorrow’s post will be back to normal! =D

Christmas is Near!

I just can’t believe that Christmas is Saturday!!!! Still in shock, here. =D Saturday at 11:30 my church does a midnight service, and I think we’ll be going to that. It is soo awesome!!! And then, on Christmas morning, I have a special surprise planned for my family! (Can’t say what it is yet for fear that someone will read….but I’m soo excited!)

Last night we visited with some friends, and guess what? We ended up making those holiday pretzels again! Thanks for the recipe Julie! We love it! =P

Last night I also borrowed a book from my friend, “A Walk to Remember” by Nicolas Sparks. Have any of ya’ll ever read it???? I’ve seen the movie, which I loved, and am super excited to read the book!

So next Tuesday is my birthday and next Sunday is my party. My best friend, her mom, my mom, and I will go to a nice hotel nearby and watch girly movies, eat plenty of chocolate…that sort of thing. One thing I can’t decide on is what I want for my dessert: fondue or chocolate cobbler???? Both sound sooo yummy!!! I might have to do one for the party and one on my actual birthday. Hmmmm….which sounds better to ya’ll?? Does anyone have a tried and true fondue recipe? =D

I am finally going to be done with school today……and I’m super glad about that!! =D  All that I have to do is write an essay about the 3 key things that I learned from taking my SAT prep course.

1. Never, ever take a prep course again.

2. I learned not to reccommend the SAT prep to anyone.

3. I hate taking long tests.

Sorry about the negative list….my teacher apparently couldn’t come up with a final, so he basically lumped together all of the work I’ve done this semester into 7 parts and called it a test. Section 2 had me online taking 25 practice tests which basically took up my whole day from 11 AM to 4 PM. Exactly what I wanted to do during my Christmas break. Oh well, at least it will be done and over with….

A couple more random questions for ya’ll:

What is your favorite Christmas movie?

I really have no idea….we just watched The Family Man and that was cute, but I don’t know if I have an all-time favorite. =P

What are some of your family’s Christmastime traditions?

  Well, we usually spend Christmas day at home. My sister and I get an ornament every year. Whenever we’re in the States we go to the 11:30 Christmas eve service.

Well, I have to go write an essay…

Happy Monday! =P

Special Member of the HC Family

Good morning, everyone!!!!!!!!!! Happy Wednesday!! Can you believe that tomorrow’s Thanksgiving? I know I can’t! This home ministry assignment has flown by! (I don’t know if I’ve said this, but we’re missionaries in South America, but we’re in the States until Jan.)

I’d just like to thank everyone who visited the blog yesterday! Seeing the number of visits literally made my day (again)!

So has anyone here ever been to Gigi’s cupcakes? They’re absolutely wonderful, and have tons of fun cupcake flavors. There are flavors of the day and seasonal flavors also. So far, my family has bought Midnight Magic Chocolate Chip, Wedding Cake, Peanut Butter Cup, Banana Cream Pie, Hunka Chunka Banana Love, Miss Princess, Raspberry (flavor of the day), and Blueberry (flavor of the day). And we still have a buy 3, get 1 free. These cupcakes cost like $3, but there is soo much frosting that we usually just quarter them and eat off of them for days. My personal favorites have been Peanut Butter Cup in first place and Midnight Magic Chocolate Chip, which is basicaly dark chocolate cake with chocolate chips baked in, topped with chocolate buttercream and more chocolate chips. Yum. Seriously though, I’d kill for the recipe for peanut butter buttercream that was used on the pb cup cupcake. It was fabulous!

Its looking like today is going to be a pretty quiet day. I am going to do extra school, both because tomorrow is Thanksgiving and because we’re going out of town Friday. This is the reason that I’ve been blogging earlier in the morning: I can take my time and write a post without feeling rushed, and I have something to do besides school when I’m the only one awake. So you all get to read my half-awake ramblings. Lucky, aren’t ya? Well, at least I don’t blog after my Algebra II lesson, you’d be getting grumpy, sarcastic posts instead of just the sarcastic ones.

Oh, I would like to introduce ya’ll to a veery special member of my family:

the HC cat!!!!!

the HC cat

 Cute isn’t he? Although not necessarily healthy, he is in fact a chocoholic! He prefers ganache over milk! Of course, he also likes peanuts and lunchmeat better than cheese, which just makes him plain weird. He’s about 2 years old and weighs 12-15 pounds, I think.

Do any of ya’ll have pets? If so, could you tell us a little more about them?
Oh! Whaddya think of the new header? Keep it or leave it?
Well, that’s about all I’ve got for now…….
See ya!
