Shrek is a creep

This last week I traveled all over Southern California. Adventures include taking the wrong exit, and having to pay $15 in toll road expenses, hanging out with a rocket scientist, trying slot machines, finding the Hollywood sign, watching the taping of a new television show (where we may or may not have met the producer, who also produced Will and Grace and Spin City.... ok we didn't meet him, we only stood close to him. BUT we did meet the script supervisor of The Golden Girls). I won't bore you with details. I will just tell a story.

We had a lovely little hotel on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. Caitlyn, Aubrey and I were all talking about how much nicer the hotel was than we thought it'd be. Then Aubrey shouted "AH! A man is watching us out the window!"
I looked over to see this

I think he was trying to get us to come to his new musical extravaganza, but it felt more like he was offering us candy to get in his van with blocked windows.... I dunno, maybe that was just me. I'm pretty sure he got closer to our room throughout the night.

In other news, I'm packing to go back and work in Disney World. Excited!

Nail Salon

My mom and my sister have told me that I should wear more make up. Apparently, I look like I put no effort into my look. So Saturday, I gave in and put some eye shadow on. I loved it. I was really feeling good about looking put together, and I thought, "What makes a girl look more put together than painted nails?" So, me and the sis pulled out all our nail polish and set up in the kitchen. She painted her nails a lovely pink. I decided I would go with metallic. I put it on, and it looked like tin foil, so I thought it would look better with black underneath. So I took off all the metallic, painted my fingernails black, and put metallic over the black. 40 minutes later, I looked incredible.

Isn't it pretty how I painted the skin around my fingernails black? You may be wondering how you can get shapely nails like mine. Just bite them whenever you're nervous, and avoid moisturizers and you will look like me in no time! I'm sure you're also wondering how to get that nice red facial complexion, but that is for another day and another post. (note: If you don't know me, you should be informed that this post is dripping with sarcasm)

My Best Friends

I'm a little bit of a hermit. I don't like to go out much, and there's nothing I hate more than calling people. So, when this weekend came I was pretty sure I'd spend most of it with my best friend... Netflix. Luckily, my mom forced me out of the house to go to dinner with her family. I'm obsessed with them.

My uncle has 4 (soon to be 5) kids, and they are the most beautiful, darling girls in the entire whole world. Seriously. They are so darling that I'm already ashamed of how ugly my own baby will be compared to them. It's that serious. Anyway, I've probably hung out with his two oldest girls this year more than I've hung out with any of my friends. After the little family dinner, I decided to go over to my uncle's house. The two oldest girls, K who is 11 and H who is 9, and I proceeded to play games, have contests, and ride a 4 wheeler. At ten their mom finally made them go to bed. As I was driving home I realized this was the most fun I'd had in a really long time. So, it's official, while I've been alive 21 years I am actually only 10.

Saturday, one of my favorite cousins, Nick, invited me and my other cousin Jess to go to the Desert Star for a show. We picked up Jess from her mom's work... which is the hospital. She works in these bad boys
Sweet. Tammy, you are the coolest.

Now Jess. She is 15. She ran a triathlon that morning. She won 1st place in her division, and 7th overall (Beating people much older than her, and a number of men.) She is a beast. Of course, you'd never know that when you talk to her because she has to be the kindest teenager who has ever lived. Her lucky parents.
Jess right up against the stage at the show. (I know you may think so, but this picture is NOT the work of a professional photographer. You will surprised to learn that it was only me and my cell phone. Feel free to be impressed.)

The point of this post is to say that all the people in my family are my best friends. I'm so close with my mom, I love hanging out with my dad more than anyone in the world (he is a fellow 10 year old), I have tons of fun with my sister, I see my mom's amazing family every Sunday, and lots of my Dad's family every Friday. I'm so tempted to talk about everyone in my family right now, but this post is already too long, so I'm going to wrap it up.

In other news, my dog just farted and she's totally pretending it wasn't her. I know it was you girl, stop looking at the door like it was someone outside. 

I can't believe I just mentioned farting on my blog...
