Soul mates..

Soo what do you think when you hear the term soul mates?

Hello lovelies, well, apparently extra stress causes me to wonder about really random thoughts. Today I was just thinking about the concept of a soulmate. My personal beliefs are that there is one person out there that is supposed to be with the other person, like there is an unseen connection and eventually they will find each other. Now, I am not saying this is correct, and some people do not even think that it is plausible. Some questions I have encountered due to this belief are the following:

- what if your soul mate marries someone else and then finds you?
- what if you find your soulmate, and you get married and then they die, then what?
- how will you find each other?
- even if they live at the north pole you think that you would still find them?

Ok, so I am not saying i have all the answers, and I know that I sound silly, but I do truly believe that there are soulmates out there. For the first question, I think that if they are supposed to be with you that something will happen to enable that. I dont really have answers to the other ones. I know that this is a fanciful idea. but it is one that I will continue to hold onto, until proven otherwise. Perhaps I am just a hopeless romantic, who grew up watching too many chick flicks and reading too many fairy tales, but I think in the end you always find the person you were supposed to be with, I just think that some people choose to settle too soon, and miss their opportunity. How do you ever know for sure? I don't know, but all the people I know who have fallen in love, and then gotten married, and it actually worked out have said that "they just knew" so hopefully I will just know.
Anyways, I know this just sounds like rambling, but I would like to hear your thoughts, how do you feel about the idea of "soulmates"?

Random thoughts..

Hello loves,

well this is a post about some things I've been thinking about, mainly to do with the opposite sex. I have friends, both male and female, and both sides are pretty open about their endeavors with the opposite sex. My girlfriends regularly talk about their crushes, as do my guy friends. And tonight I got to wondering, if perchance we were the objects of someone else's dinner conversation. As we sat their and talked I was just thinking... what if there are 4-5 guys sitting around a table, eating pizza (like us) talking to each other..about us? This is how i imagine it would play out:

guy 1"Dude, I saw her today, she was driving that grandma car again, and I thought she saw me, in fact I'm pretty sure she actually smiled at me" guy 2 "Dude... she doesn't even know your name, why don't you just talk to her?" guy 1 "I will, when an opportunity comes up" guy2 "yeah... ok...."

In some respect at least thats a combination of what both my guy girl friends sound like when we talk about crushes... and I just think it is a coold concept to think about.. "is someone one out there thinking about me? crushing on me? totally stockerneting me? haha" ok, so maybe the last one is just a westmont thing, lol, but perhaps? Anyways.. this just kind of got me through the night. I hope there is someone out there that is thinking about me.. And I hope sometime soon I will have a crush again.. so I can join the conversations..and talk about a boy I really like.. who may or may not know I exist, haha, but for now I live vicariously through my friends' infatuations, and stocking. haha.. and the lovely site maybe when I have a crush again I will write him an anonymous letter on there. Only time will tell. Just some crazy, outlandish thoughts for the night!

Just another manic monday!

It all started at about 3am Monday morning... that is when I knew it was going to be quite the week. So at 3am, i got up, and started tossing my cookies.. thats right I was tragically sick. I wasn't able to go back to bed until 6am, and in that time I emailed my professors, and tossed and turned in my bed. I ended up staying in bed all day. i only got out of bed to run over to campus to buy winter formal tix, turned out that was a big mistake.

So I go over there, buy the ticket, and then get back in my car thinking that I should go get gas... i try to turn on the car, it starts and dies. So what do I do, call my dad of course, I make him listen through the phone, he tells me I am out of gas. So I go back into the DC ask to borrow my friends car, go to her apt, pick up the red 5gal gas thing, then go to the gas station, where the gas attendant had to show me what to do. Then I head back up to campus. Mind you, it has just rained, its about 6pm, and it is super windy and about 50degrees out side. so i pull her car up to my car, get out, and attempt to pour the gas into my car, its a no go. One of my guy friends drives by and waves, he must of realized i was in trouble because he backed up and parked, and asked if he could help, i said yes please. I for got to mentiont that the 5gal thing's spout did not fit into the tank's hole, so I went into the DC and had to ask the kitchen for a funnel, so my friend and I attempt to fill the tank with the funnel. We get gasoline all over my car, our hands, and our shoes. Still 50degrees out side and dropping, and my friend had just come from baseball weight training so he is in a tshirt and bball shorts. So then his roommate comes up and suggests that we move the car to another angle so it may be easier to pour the gas in. This would be great if my car actually ran, so I get in, pput the car in neutral, and they get in front of my car, and try to push.. its a no go... they cant budge it even a little.. two more baseball boys walk by and offer to help, so they push my car back enough to get out of the space.. this parking lot is on a hill so I just glide to another spot, and then park so that the tank is now tilted correctly. So we try again, still doesnt work, so one of the guys suggests using a stick to keep the hole open, instead of the funnel. So we do that and we are finally able to get enough gas in so I can make it to a gas station.

Whoever said chilvary is dead does not know guys that I know. They were amazing, and truly my knights in shining armor. So that was my monday, no wonder I hate them so much. haha. However, this also made me thankful, as I was standing out there, freezing, and Im looking at the boy shivering in their shorts and tshirts I was thanking God, for my car, my wonderful, and amazing friends, and the fact that I may be cold at the moment, but that I had a nice warm bed, in a nice warm house to go to.

You're 20, now what are you going to do?

Well, if its me, I'm going to disneyland!!! So me and the best friend went to Disneyland, and had a blast, we met up with my cousins, and aunt and uncle for a little bit. I love them. And talli let me be a princess. I wore my crown, and dress, and went on a tour of the castle. I loved it! It was amazing how many people were celebrating their birthdays too! Tons of people told me Happy birthday, and I told tons of people happy birthday too, so fun!

Then we went and saw some of the characters, and unfortunately we didnt get a picture, but when we went up to goofy he bowed to me, and then when we were walking away he took my hand and kissed it. soo fun, i felt like royalty.

Then we met the mouse. and took this awkward hand holding picture, haha, fun times. Then we took our fast passes and ran to the Haunted Mansion, (because its my favorite) and we saw one of our high school friends working, and he actually told us one of our favorite high school teachers, mrs h was there, so i text her and we met up with her and her family and went on Thunder Mountain! Then we headed out, after I bought my sweet princess pink santa hat!!

Had such a wonderful birthday weekend!

Love everyone soooo much!


josslynn nicole

where does the time go??

Well hello my loves,

It has been quite crazy in my neck of the woods. Lets start with friday... The girls and I went out to dinner at Pascucci's it was amazing... well actually we had dinner at Panda Express while we waited for our name to be called at pascuccis, then we had dessert at Pascucci's. Absolutely love their brownie with coffee gelato. They lit a candle and sang.. the whole deal. Then we went to starbucks for coffee after. And my girlies got me some amazing gifts. I got the whistle for that wonderful organization I told you guys about, and a very "me and meg" card, it was too cute. Then Brie got me the Wuthering Heights novel, the classic one that I had posted about prieviously, and inside she put to me from her for my 20th birthday, so cute. and then meg got me this starbucks mug, and ornament, which i am now keeping at their apartment so I dont have to keep stealing theirs. It was so amazing to have such a lovely evening with all my girlies, Trisha, Meg, Brie, Meg, Sara, Nicole and Katelyn! I love them sooo much, and I am so blessed to have them in my life. Then I went and hung out with the boys for a while, we went and rented the Ugly Truth, I got to pick since I was DD. haha, anyways.. they all passed out, except for Justin, so we enjoyed it. Then I stayed the night at the girls' apt because Meg had to take me to the train station at 615, then I went home. Once I was home we had a birthday at the local pizza parlor, Wharehouse Pizza. It was great, I love my family! We were missing a few important people but we managed. Unfortunately I didnt take any picts with them. Well this is a longer post... so I think I will wait until the next one to talk about Disneyland..and then my Monday mishaps. so... to be continued.

Thanksgiving Break!

Hello darlings,
Well I just got back from Thanksgiving break and it was quite lovely. My brother came home from college, so we got to hang out and be goofy. After sitting in four hours of traffic for a trip that is usually and hour and a half, I was finally home. The next day I got to sleep in, which I think is what the majority of college students do when they go home for the holidays, then I went to Disneyland with one of my best friends, Citlalli. We celebrated Thanksgiving at my Grandparents house, where I helped with the deviled eggs, and our younger cousins wrote down their christmas lists for our gift exchange. The turkey was delicious, we were missing a few family members, but we get to see them on Christmas eve, so I guess that makes up for it. After dinner we went through the black friday ads to plan our big morning. On Black friday we woke up at 3:45 and were at khols by 4:15, we put my stepdad in line, and we did strategic shopping, then we hit up the gas station, and then Target, we once again placed my step dad in line, and split up to get all our gifts. We came back to the line, dumped our stuff and headed for the in store starbucks to re-fuel, then when we checked out there was an "episode" but it just added excitment to our morning. We then headed to Wal mart, and were out of there by 7, and then it was time to unwind at Barnes and noble. I took an idea from Real Simple magazine, where I got almost everyone on my list books. Then it was time to head home, I started wrapping, and then needed to go to the craft store to get jars for my cocoa mixes. Then I met up with my mom at Bath and Body works to get pretty scented soaps for the holiday season. Then it was time for In'N'Out. When we got home we broke out the Christmas decorations, and turned on the Christmas music. The boys hung the icicles on the house, while mom and I set up the village, and decorated the shelves. Can't wait to go home next weekend, and finish decorating. That night I had dinner with my beautiful friend Annalise, Nana for short. We were out for almost 5hours, just catching up on life, we hadn't seen each other since May, so it was long overdue. Then after I headed to the bowling alley to hang out with my brother, and some friends from high school whom I love very much, Citlalli, Sheraan, Melissa, Valerie, Ariston. and a few significant others. As well I finally got to congratulate Asher on his engagement, so excited!! Then it was off to Sheraan's house for a zombie movie. Then Saturday was spent with my godson, Coby. I can't believe how big he is getting, I love him sooo much! Then we went to the mall, and got to take pictures with santa. After that it was coffee with my best friend in the whole world, Alyssa, and her boyfriend. I miss her, and do not get to see her as often as I would like. Overall a very nice holiday! It ended way too soon. Off to start another week. Hope all of your Thanksgivings were fabulous!

Welcome to the crazy ....

Hello my loves,
Well it would appear that two weeks have escaped me. I would like to catch you all up on my life for the past two weeks. It has been a crazy whirlwind. Homework has been insane, our teachers have been piling on the work because we are going on Thanksgiving break next wednesday. A few exciting things to share. I have been having an amazing time at my internship, getting soo much experience, and having opportunities I couldn't even fathom in my wildest dreams. I am so thankful and grateful, I love what I am doing. Today was the last day of my craziness, I have been pulling all nighters, and running around with my head cut off, but last night was the last night. On a high note, I went and saw the midnight premiere of New Moon. It wasn't quite the best movie I have ever seen, however, it did have its shining moments. Jacob/Taylor was beyond easy on the eyes. My best friend came back to visit his family for Thanksgiving, and we went and picked him up from the airport, and got to spend the night with him, which was fabulous because I have missed him like crazy these past months. Anyways, off to sleep, very excited about the girls' "Thanksgiving" tomorrow. Can't wait for the gathering because are like a mini family, and its nice to have people you can completely be yourself around, and people who know you and still love you. Anyways, pray I don't poison anyone, haha, only joking, I am becoming quite a good cook if I do say so myself.
Here some adorable pictures, of the gorgeous Kate Beckingsale.. I thought that it was appropriate because she is wearing orange which is seasonal, and they are just fun pictures.

Update please!

Hello myloves,
Oh my goodness, it has been quite crazy since last weekend. I haven't been keeping you up to date with everything but these past couple of weeks, my car has been giving me trouble, and I have been switching between my car, and my Grandma's. So this past Thursday my car completely gave out, and I was actually towed from Santa Barbara to Azusa. It was a very long drive, but neither one of us talked to one another. I, of course, being an English major always have a book in my purse, and so I read the whole way home. I got to be home for the weekend, and I went out to dinner with my family, and then I got to hang out with Citlalli and my little brother and I loved it. I recycled a costume, that I have worn twice already, but it was all I had. It was very nice to be home, but now I am back to the grinding stone, and its going to be a rough couple of weeks til Thanksgiving since I have so much homework due in between, that's not so exciting. But here are a few pictures from this weekend.
me and my silly dad
me and Talli!
me and the family
The little bro and I

and last but not least the cutest little boy in the world, my godson, Coby. Oh man do I love this little boy!!!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!! And hopefully I will be back in full swing next week.

Monday Madness!

Hello My Darlings,
Well this weekend was a blast. We had our first event on Saturday, and it went off without a hitch. We raised tons of money, it was a gorgeous Santa Barbara day, and we got to use a suite on the Rotunda of the doubletree hotel to get ready! It was fantastic, I love my internship! I could not ask for a better one, God has truly blessed me, and I could not be more thankful. The wonderful ladies I work with are just fabulous! I can not wait to make this my career. Hope you all have a wonderful monday, I woke up not feeling so well, so I will be taking it easy today.

Happy Friday!!

Hello darlings,
It's finally friday!! I am so happy, I woke up so refreshed, and in such a good mood. I have to tell you that I have been sticking to my morning schedule, and with Megan's playlist it was even better this morning. Along with that last night I joined a volleyball club team at our school, actually I will be heading up the girl's team because the league the club team had joined is an all men league, so the women will not be able to play as much. So the guys in charge said that if one of us girl would head up the girls team he would get us all the information to join our own league, and if it was too late for that at least we would be able to play in women volleyball tournaments. I am sooooo excited about it! So after that was settled we played Queen of the court, and then we got to play a full game. I was in heaven. I don't know if I told you guys that I tried volleyball last week at the YMCA and it was a little intimidating, but last night I felt like I was in my element! AHHH I loved it. So going to bed in such a good mood, and a little bit exhausted from the sport, that allowed me to wakeup in such a blissful mood. As well I had the most wonderful dreams last night. So all around my Friday started out great! And I have so much to look forward this weekend. On Saturday we have the first event for my internship. We are doing this big event called Storyteller for Santa Barbara, and I am so stoked. I will definitely report back and let you know how it goes. Alright my loves, I hope that your Friday turns out wonderfully!

Morning tunes!

Hello my lovelies!
I am so excited to introduce Megan from her blog, Lovely Happenings. She has agreed to do a guest blog today on what is the best playlist to listen to in the morning. Or any other time you want to enjoy great music. She has fabulous taste and I am so thankful she agreed to do a post on my blog today and I can not wait to start listening to this music every morning while I am getting ready! So enjoy!
josslynn nicole

I love music. I have over 10,000 songs in my itunes. And I could easily add a thousand more! In the morning I enjoy listening to fun and lighthearted songs. I basically could listen to Jon Mayer and Dave Matthews Band for the rest of my life and be pretty darn content. I made this lovely playlist for you all to enjoy while getting ready in the morning (or whenever you want to listen to some fabulous muisc). Don't worry, I included much more than just John Mayer and Dave Matthews Band. So go ahead and push the play button. Some of my personal favorite artists from the playlist include:
-Minus the Bear
-Joshua Radin
-Kyle Riabko
-Citizen Cope
-Death Cab for Cutie
-Ray LaMontagne

Hope you enjoy! Thanks.

Lovely Tuesday

Hello lovelies,
Ok, so I have decided to take advice from the wonderful Sarah of Yes and yes blog, and try to become a better morning person, no, I did not say a morning person, just a better one. For those of you who know me you are probably laughing right now, and that is ok. This morning I started it, and I have to say I am really enjoying it. We will see how long it last, but it may allow me to write you beautiful people more often. Alright well, I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Haircut... ahhhh!!!

Hello darlings,
So tomorrow I am going to get my haircut, and i have decided to try something a little different, I am going to get it cut so that i have a side part/partial bangs. I want it to be super choppy, yet still long, with lots of volume, and not look 'punk rockerish' so we will see. I know that is a tall order but I am hoping this hairdresser can do it. Did I mention that I am going to a new salon, which is really scary because I have been to the same hairdresser since Freshmen year of high school,(7years ago) so its a tad nerving wracking. Well I guess that is not entirely true, I got it highlighted last January, but that didnt really count, no one could even tell. K, below are some examples of what I would like it to turn out like. I'll let you all know how it goes tomorrow!
