I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I look forward to telling you about mine, but for now I just wanted to do a post about candy. With the upcoming coming holiday, I thought it was appropriate to tell you all about my "candy requirements."
- I only like green apple blow pops, and jollyranchers
- I love all peeps but the easter birds are my favorite
- I eat my PEANUT m&ms starting with the colors I like least, to the colors I like best
- Red and Green skittles are my favorite
- I only eat Banana runts
- I LOVE candy corn
- My favorite candy has peanut butter and chocolate in it.
-My favorite chocolate is dairy milk chocolate from London
- I hate dark chocolate
-I only eat blue berry dumdums
Really random, I know... but I thought it was appropriate after my last post, hope you find the humor in it.

So this post is going to be all about me. Over at the lovely blog http://www.yesandyes.org/ she did a post about introducing herself, called "Charmed I'm sure!" and I thought it was extremely cute, and a great idea. So I have decided to share some things that maybe you know about me and may be you don't, but all together they are the things that make me who I am. Starting off with the picture to the left. 1. I am a hopeless romantic, who really thinks that her prince charming is out there and will come sweep me off my feet when the time is right.
2. Ever since I was little my grandmother called me Princess, and still calls me that. In high school I was called that by my best friends, and I would like to believe it was out of love, not malicious in nature. And I admit openly that after the movie Princess Diaries came out I incessantly bothered my mom about whether or not she was keeping anything from me. Due to this obsession I also bought a book titled "Some day my prince will come" and that song was my ringtone for a while, as well my current ring tone is Love Story by taylor Swift.

And I encourage all of you to be a part of something, no matter what it is.
Here is the address for this organization :
Another non-profit that is very close to my heart is Not 4sale.
Here is their website:
And one more before I go, that I love is called:
All very moving and amazing life changing organizations.
Alright, well I hope this encourages you to go out there and make a change!!!
well it has been quite a week of ups and downs, and in betweens, anyways...
we didnt get to go bungee jumping like we were hoping, but that was ok, because the girls and I filled our day with retail therapy, and a good movie. I ended up getting the long boots, and the british flag tank top. I cant wait to wear them, I'll be sure to take a picture when I do put them on. And we saw Love Happens, and it was very cute, much deeper then I thought it was, and also not such a cliche chick flick, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
In other news, I gave Reality church a second chance, and I really enjoyed it, I got alot out of the message, and it was really nice, and it stirred something inside me that I am excited about checking into, once my idea is in full swing I will be sure to fill you in on my new inspiration.
The pastor talked about filling yourself with the Holy Spirit, and letting that shine through you, and how your relationships are like triangles, and God should be at the top, and as you move closer to God within your relationships, the closer you are to the people in those relationships, and I was just reflecting on that with one of my girlfriends, and it is soo true.. The strongest friendships I have, and even family reltionships are those that are Christ centered, and I just think that is so profound, and invigorating. I am amazed at how God is continually working in my life. Alright, well those are my thoughts for the moment, nothing too exciting happening right now, however I did meet a boy (well kinda) we havent actually met in person, but we are friends of friends, and we started talking on Facebook, of all places, he seems really nice, and I am really excited to see what this new friendship has in store, I think that it is an opportunity for both of us to relate to each other for two very different perspectives, and I am excited at the possibility. As well, on the topic of the internet, I just find it more and more amazing everyday, I have been talking to my friends all over the world in Iraq, and London, and Germany, and it is just so fantastic. It reminds me of Brad Paisley's song "Welcome to the Future"
Have a wonderful Sunday afternoon!

The girls and I dressed in our best plaid
I actually went home the first weekend because my brother had a 5day weekend so he came home as well, it was very nice, we hung out wtih the family, and discussed at length his roommate situation.
As well this past week, I started my internship at the fantastic company TOAST. Here is a link to the website www.toastsantabarbara.com As well i am on that blog too! I am so excited about everything that is going on this year. I feel like I have finally come into myself as a college student, and it is quite an amazing feeling!
At long last you are all officially up to date on the current happenings of my life.. The above picture is how I spent my saturday, with a coke, a cupcake and a captivating novel.. Oh it was quite a lovely afternoon. Today I am enjoying a dreary santa barbara day, this morning I went to church, and this evening I am going to cook for my girlfriends, yes you read right, I am going to COOK, I know it is a little hard to fathom since the extent of my cooking skills is whatever can go in the microwave, mac n cheese, and cereal, which doesnt really count. But since they have been cooking amazing meals for me, it is now my turn to repay them. So I am attempting shrimp bruschetta, and soup, and salad, which shouldn't be too hard, I hope, I will let you know the outcome. Until then Ciao!

I hope you all are having an amazing weekend, mine is a bit dreary with the beautiful santa barbara covered up by ominous skies, but that is ok, bc that is actually how I like it, now if only a rainstorm would hit! Anyways, I am hoping that with this last post I will be all caught up, and you will be completely filled in on my summer, that way I can fill you in on what is taking place in my life presently.
These are some fabulous people that I have known since I was in kindergarten,
L-R Alyssa (my best friend in the world), Matt, kariann, and myself
Matts older sister got married (pictured below with her husband) and so we all got together to celebrate, his mom was also our girl scout troop leader, good times!
Here is Anthony's little one, who is now 3 mos old, Kieran,
he finally came over to visit me, and as we were talking Kieran
fell asleep right on his daddy's lap, such a sweet baby,I cant believe how big he is.
Here is my best friend Ryan, and his fiance, so excited for them both, they are getting married
in November! and this was right after he got back from his first tour. He is an amazing friend, as well as marine.
Also, this summer, my little bro left for college, this is us "sleeping" on the roadtrip... of course this is a posed picture, we were definitely sprawled out across the seats, trying to get comfortable, and failing miserably... anyways, it was a fun trip.
Me and the little bro saying goodbye to one another, I love him so much, I can not believe he is in college.
The boys, all walking to the car to say goodbye to brenn, sad day!
One part of the family on the roof of brenn's new apartment,
He's officially on his own!
just Talli and I kickin' it with mickey, the only boy that will never disappoint.
Me and Talli assuming our roles as princesses, this was actually one of the most fun times I
have had at disneyland, we wore our crowns all day, and were referred to as your highness, and Princess, it was fantastic, I always knew I was a princess,
These two girls are amazing, they were my roommates freshmen year of college and I love them dearly, Marina(the one on the left) left for Europe for the semester so this was our goodbye/birthday dinner for her. I love them both soooooo much, and I miss her tons!!! but its ok because we skype,and Im all the time, its great! I love technology.
And of course, to end on a happy note I had to put this up, because I haven't posted about my obsession with this movie in a while, and I just thought it was too cute!
Alright beautiful people, that is all for now, and next time, I will be able to tell you about school, and all that it has in store for me.
