Mountains and Stuff

So it's pretty much awesome living so close to the mountains!  I can't help but always look out the window or want to go do some out doorsy stuffs.
This last weekend we finally put the Mountain Bikes to the test and went for a ride through Alpine.  It was sooo pretty.  Wish you all could have been there to see it.  I'll tell you one thing though, it was exhausting!  I was ready for a long nap when I got home.  (I'm an old fart I know)

The rest of the weekend was kind of a blur thanks to my computer causing and issue after installing Windows 7.  Worked fine for most laymen users, but for me what I wanted it to crapped out.  Seems to be my motherboard and that will just not do!

One thing I really would like to say to the world suck!
It's not based on hard work and dedication anymore and that sir it messed up to the extreme.  I'm sorry for being old fashioned but I choose not to be a brown noser and probably never will be.  So sue me.

On a lighter note!  This weekend will be awesome!  Heading down to Fashion Place mall to grab some wrist bands to meet some of the New Moon cast!  :)  Way excited. 

Well I'll keep you posted!

Long time no talk!

Wow these last couple weeks have gone by like a roller coaster!  Not so hot weekdays, but GREAT weekends!

It's so crazy to live for the weekends..not used to it really.

Couple weekends ago was the Dew Tour...have some great video and pics.  Still need to get the vids posted somewhere.  Here is my favorite picture though--Jeremy Stenberg taking it home for Team Cali Boys!:

It was so freaking awesome...Glad I made it at least for the finals.
Then of course another horrible week that led up to another great weekend.  Friday night I got off work early (Thanks to the amount of hostility).  Klub was staying the night so we decided to go do some longboarding and a spur of the moment Lehi Foot Hills  hike.  Pictures Here.   Went home and watched Friday the 13th (2009). 
Best of all was Saturday morning...waking up KNOWING I get to go riding!  I was sooo excited...with a little dred of being so out of shape.  Man was it worth it though.  We definatly need to make more time to do that stuff.  It's been way too long.

Now it's another Monday--I'm just waiting for this week to be just as bad as before.  I used to try the whole, "think positive and life will be positive", yeah well.  That  hasn't worked for me in the past few months.  So I have kind of given up on that.  I'm just taking things as them come and suck my life away!  =D 

Bought tickets for the New Moon movie too!  It's going to be great.  I'm way too excited....and to all you haters....It doesn't matter that they sparkle!  THEY ARE HOT! ;)

Anyway Ta Ta For Now!

Best Weekend EVER!

Wow, this last Labor Day weekend was just so amazing.   
The whole weekend was just jam packed with awesomeness.
Saturday, we went out and had a nice relaxing time with my parents.  Saw the new movie Gamer.  Which by the way I thought was great.  A little gory and nude scenes here and there, but it was definitely worth seeing.
After the movie we got some grub at JCW's (Always a good choice).  Then went car searching, sadly coming up short.  But we ended the night with a great game of laser tag with our friends Cozy and Mitch.
Sunday we planned on spending most of the day alone since we hadn't had much of that alone time for a while.  But around noon the in-laws asked if we'd like to go for some boating around 2.  Of course we did, they were so nice to invite us cause it was such a relaxing time!  Loved it, just floating on the water, jumping in now and then to cool off.  Great day.  We then went home played some games and relaxed.  
Monday was just freaking awesome, it was the day of the Blink concert, we were going to go see if any dealer ships were open to check out some cars.  We were lucky enough to find an awesome car!  After some test driving of the competition of course.  The only down side was we were a little late for the concert due to the signing of papers for the car.  So we missed the first couple bands before Blink.  Luckily we caught the butt end of Taking Back Sunday though.  Bought our selves some kick A T-shirts, and rocked out!  Travis Barker did the craziest drum solo ever!  Got it all on video.  Man it was just an amazing concert, which was all made possible by getting Free tickets from someone we know. 
Really the weekend was just so GREAT!  Couldn't have had a better time...I think....
Anyway, yeah I didn't explain it as awesome as it was..but trust me on this..I know thy sweetness!

Holiday Weekends!

Who doesn't love a good holiday weekend!?  Speically when you're lucky enough to get that holiday off!
This will basically be my second in a row! ;)  Shhh....
Have a lot to do this weekend, going on a ride Saturday morning up the canyon.  Then running some errands while supposedly helping the sister in law move.

Also plan on talking the old man into going to see Gamer.  See if that's any good.  I LOVE Gerard Butler, so it can't be too horrible.
Sunday then should be a nice relaxing day-nothing to special maybe grab some grub with the family.  Then awesome Monday!  We were lucky enough to get FREE tickets to the Blink 182 concert, so it'll be a relaxing morning to end with a kick ass night!

Anyway, I'm going to try and zone out for the rest of tonight so I can get through this retarded job!

He had delusions of adequacy.

For all of you out there who seem to think we REALLY care what you think---awesome news!  We don't.  Last time I checked no one payed any attention to your awesome tid bits.  
I must say, you have nothing to prove to me.  I know life for you isn't that pleasant.  Maybe the love sac isn't as great as it once was.  I'm sorry.  Hopefully one day you'll notice it's not everyone else who is failing it's you.
Now that that's over, I had a nice long weekend of relaxation. Nothing of importance.  Spent some quality time with my family and moved on.  Didn't get to work Monday, but what are you ganna do?  That place is retarded these days anyway.  They see their the fungus that lives on crap.  
I'm pretty sure I'm going to strangle my puppy...she's driving us insane.  Alas I love her and will always love her, and hope she grows up to be just like Auzzie Bear!  =D
Also everyone check out the band Mew!  :) Great stuff!
K I'm out..

Just keep swimming!

It's crazy how inspirational TV/Movie characters can be!  Kind of cheesy to but, hey whatever is going to get you though that next day, right?
Hell life is short and I personally know that I could use all the help I can get to make things seem brighter on the other side.

I know one man said it best, maybe a little extreme but still AWESOME.
That's right Cpt James T. Kirk!  You tell em! =D
This week has been semi quick, maybe due to my goal of being a drone throughout it. One thing I've learned though is if you can't make it better, ride it till it dies.  Some things I'm hoping die quick others I'm praying never die.  In the end I'm riding hard and keeping a smile on my face as much as humanly possible.
Anyone know else going to the Blink 182 concert?  If so!  I'll see you there!  It's going to be noice!
Have a good weekend and see ya'll next week.

Conflicting the Seasons!

 The Autumnal Equinox marks the beginning of Autumn.  In the Northern Hemisphere in 2009, it occurs on Tue Sep 22 2009 15:19:50 GMT-0600 (Mountain Daylight Time) and in the Southern Hemisphere on Fri Mar 20 2009 05:45:05 GMT-0600 (Mountain Daylight Time).
 Autumn is upon us and I can't help but be conflicted in my feelings about it.
I'm excited, the smells of rain and the cold creeping on the valley.  The heat subsides, making riding my dirt bike a lot nicer, hehe.
It's always fun to think of bundling up and going for a stroll. 
On the other hand Autumn means Winters near, and sometimes I can't stand being TOO cold! 
Either way the seasons are changing and I love it and hate it!  =D It's a wonderful feeling. 
I've been reading The Host by Stephenie Meyer and I have to say its got a lot of the same feeling that Twilight did.  Slow in the beginning then semi eye catching through out.  It's more SyFy rather than love story Vampire land.  We'll see if it keeps my attention through it all.  So far I'm near half way.
Now back to work!

Skate and Create 2009

Have some awesome videos for everyone to check out!
Skate & Create 2009

Didn't get to spend the weekend riding. One of the bikes wouldn't get started so we spent the day trying to get it running! Fun times!
Hoping to have at least a couple new bikes within the next few months. If you know of anyone know wants to buy a '90 CR125R Honda--let me know, really could use it being sold! Runs great, jets may need a little tweaking for idle but other than that loved it since the day I got it. Just looking for more power, 250 here I come! =D

Spent most of Sunday helping family suggestion...DON'T MOVE! :) Or don't own so much stuff, we still haven't unpacked our crap!

Anyway check out the vids-came to my attention thanks to: Milosport

Beware of the bugs....and stuff


SO, awesome story about a guy I know, who will be named Anonymous.
Yesterday while strolling along a path next to a canal, he was playfully speaking with a friend who was accompanying him, when BAM! A giant bug flew swiftly into his mouth causing him to spasm and cough, suddenly a sharp pain hindered him JUST before vomiting violently to the side!

Moral of this story- don't talk. Just listen.

Anyway, exciting weekend ahead! Motorcycles, dirt, camping, moving, did I say motorcycles and dirt?

YES,wish you all could come along! I'll miss you! =D NOT!

You're awesome!

That's right you're awesome! Always remember that. NO matter how horrible the day may seem, your boy didn't call, your friends yelled at you, you laid down your bike! It'll all be OK and you're still awesome for even being there!

I'm listening to the Stairway to Heaven and reminiscing about how I used to be able to play that song on the guitar. Boy have I gotten lazy in my old age. Hopefully I'll snap out of it and get back to the things I truly love. As of right now I just waste the day away! RETARDED!

Well I'm going on my mandatory 1HR lunch to check on my kitty at the rents place.

The days you'll remember for the rest of your life.

Honestly-You know those amazing days when you're on vacation and nothing in the world matters because NOTHING can touch you?

Well a week ago I was in a full 8 days of that feeling and I hate that I had to leave. The real world sucks! Haha, as much as people want to make it peachy keen it's actually hard work. No joke to the kids!

But alas it's what we do to make do! And you need to enjoy the ride while it lasts. Life is nothing to waste, just ask the Ethiopians! =D Those awesome little buggers. Anyway, I'm back to the grind and thinking of the great times!

And it returns.......

So- It's been a while, I've been too busy to think straight and so stressed I can barely keep my eyes open.

It seems the all that I've worked for, everything I break my self down for is slowly dwindling away as time goes on. I try to fix what's now broken again but can't seem to find a solution. It breaks my heart that I'm effecting others lives as well as my own.

I think it because of the time that I have on my hands now...which is too much! I can't stand being alone for too long, a couple days is OK! But several is too much to bear. It must just be the fact that my pathetic brain has too much to process and not enough little things to keep it occupied.

Arg can't think I need to eat! Cya!

Fantastic Weekend!

*****In 1221 Genghis Khan killed 1,748,000 people at Nishapur in one hour.*****

So, wow, this weekend was just amazing! It was our 1yr anniversary on top of Memorial Day, so we had a 3 1/2 day weekend. We decided to take a trip down to see my brother in Vegas, and to spend time at a nice hotel for our Anniversary.

We left Friday night around 9pm our time, getting us there around 4:30am. :) It wasn't SO bad, I slept like a rock that's for sure. We ended up having to crash on my brothers futon until around 8am when he left for work, then spent most the day sleeping in his room. Where it was much cooler, darker, and quieter. We slept till probably 2pm. Got up and got a hotel room for the rest of the weekend. It was a beautiful room, that we ended up upgrading to a suite on our last day, which I might add had the prefect view of the strip. We spent most of the weekend hanging out by the pool in my brothers backyard, eating at great restaurants, but the most important just relaxing. Sunday night we ate at a club/restaurant called Ra. It was a sushi place just off the strip. The music was great, the food was drool worthy and the sake was even better. After that we ended up bowling down by our hotel, where I of course schooled both of the boys!

The next day we just relaxed, went shooting out in the desert and eventually of course had to head home.

The drive was horrible, the seats in our P.O.S. car were killing my back the entire way. On top of me being super tired, and trying to sleep. I couldn't.

I was excited to get home though. It's nice to be able to sleep in your own bed, and use your own things. Although who is ever excited about going back to work? I know I wasn't, and further proved my point by the fact it was busier than ever today! Of course being because it was after a holiday.

Our dog has been acting strange as well so I haven't been able to keep my mind off that very well.

My mind is too jumbled to really keep a good straight forward blog so I'm sure most of this makes no sense or has no exciting details!

Anyway, maybe I'll have my head together by tomorrow.

Who Knew?

*****One of the most efficient ways of cleaning your teeth is to chew on a stick.*****

I didn't know! Did you?

Yeah I didn't think so.

So we got word on the offer we made on a house yesterday, they countered with a different price. SO, again, we countered with another price. And we should hear back by tomorrow at 4pm. This little game back and forth is wearing! But if it works out it was meant to be, if it doesn't it wasn't.

I don't think I'll have a day for the next week were I'm home relaxing. I was gone all day today, all day the day before, now tomorrow we'll be leaving for all weekend.

Vacation is better than nothing I guess! :)

My Man of the century cut his hair today! I'll have to get the before and afters up sometime soon. I'm going to miss his long silky smooth hair while it's gone! =(

Well I'm going to get back to pretending I'm actually working. See how well that goes over!

Later days,

RAWR! It's Wednesday!

*****One-fourth of the world's population lives on less than $200 a year Ninety million people survive on less than $75 a year.*****

Today, we went house shopping again. We found some really, really nice homes. Sadly 2 of them were in horrible locations or we would have put offers on the table. I mean they were gorgeous inside, and homey. The outsides were just horrible, neighborhood, surrounding features, etc. Very stressful when that happens.

We did find one that we made an offer on today! We will hear what they think about our offer by tomorrow night. I HOPE they consider us. The house was just so perfect. Exactly what we were looking for and in a great location to boot!

I can't wait for this house shopping to be done though, it's stressful and draining.
(Especially when you don't eat before you go)!

So I'll keep an update of the ins and outs and ups and downs probably!

Sun burnt and loving it!

*****Taft was the last President with facial hair.*****

So this weekend was sooo amazing! I had a blast I can't even explain how amazing it was! Ok, I lied...I can!

Saturday, I slept in, waking occasionally but to only fall asleep again. Finally waking around 11:30am. Around 12 we decided to take the dogs up Rock Canyon for a nice little hike. By the time we got there it was already pretty warm, and the canyon seemed to be packed with rock climbers, joggers, hikers, campers, etc.
We spent the next 2 hours with the dogs hiking up the canyon, letting the dogs play in the water when we saw them getting tired of the sun and dirt. My husband thought it would be smart to jump from one large boulder to another,the other being located in the center of the river, and ended up over shooting it and landing flat on his back seconds later to slide 5 feet into the river below!

It was a site to see! He also decided to climb a cliff face, in which case my Chihuahua decided to follow....the crazy dog made it pretty far! I was amazed...and amused as he didn't know how to get back down! :D

Eventually I noticed the little dog not wanting to walk much more so we turned around and decided to go home. I noticed once home I was pink as the pink flowers on my shirt! That's what summers all about though right?

The best part of the day is I FINALLY got my dirt bike running again! Drained the gas, put new in, kicked a few time and VREEEEEEEEEEENnenenenene. :) Drove it around the block a min. (Not too long since I knew neighbors were probably flipping by the noise of the thing). When I got back I was shaking for over 20 minutes from how excited I was to be riding it again!

I just can't wait to take it out west and give it the run that it deserves!

Once that fun was over, we went to dinner, stuffed our faces. Then ended up stopping at the local AC (Artic Circle) and getting ice cream. To stuff our faces more!

All in all it was a good Saturday, then to spend Sunday just lounging around the house. It felt great! Great time to get my mind off work stress, and world stress.

Anyway, I should be signing up for Fall Semester classes, but I'm way to lazy for that! :)
Maybe I will once this weekend is over, since this weekend is VEGAS BABY!!

See ya'll soon.

Failboat Full Timers

(Before we start I would like to say I'm going to start every blog with a random thing..random fact I guess you should say :) Enjoy).

****Rather than kiss, Samians simply smell each other****

That's what I call you people who like working full time!

You're crazy and I do not support your craziness! I'm full time now and I will tell you this, I work VERY hard to hold in my screams.

Call me lazy, whatever you say will not change my mind. Yes the money is amazing, but seriously people. Lets all just go out and do what we love how about that? (Unrealistic)

Anyway, I'm happy to say that we are becoming way more active these days. Probably because of the great weather, but also probably because of how icky we feel! We took our dogs hiking Wednesday of this week and it was a blast. The best part was watching a 10lb Chihuahua trying to clime up cliff rock. I even tried to stop the little bugger to let him chill but he kept on chuggin! Then my other dog, our Australian Shepherd, good lord he is like a mountain goat. He was climbing up ledges I wouldn't even dare to! It was crazy to watch, I kept calling to him cause I was scared haha. If dogs could talk I'm sure he'd by like the teen who keeps telling their parents to "Chill"!

So tomorrows Plans are to work out in the morning, relax, work on my bike for a while hopefully getting it running. Then later in the afternoon hopefully go for a nice hike again.
I'm stoked.

See ya'll tomorrow!

What happens on Wednesdays?

I'll tell you what happens! You go to class, realize the final controls if you're going to pass or fail, you go home and freak out.

Well--Ok, not really FREAK OUT, but you know? Freak out. I'm sure I'll survive, I just hate studying when there are much more fun things to do out there. Especially with this wonderful weather! Wow, it's gorgeous out there today.

So he's the low down on my plans for my hair-dids. I just cut it today again, and wow, bleached it. The plan is to have it this way for when we go to Hawaii in the fall. (Easier to handle) So I'll cut it and get the roots done ONE more time before the trip.
Then after the trip, it's long hair from then on! Oh-and did I mention BROWN! ZOME! I know, I know, It's crazy. =p

Terrible Tues.....days.

So- It's only Tuesday and I feel like I'm about to crack. I'm 100% ready for the weekend again, even if I have to study for finals this weekend. Oh man! Finals!!!! *Pulls out hair*

K, I know this is lame but I really, really want to see 17 Again! Ha ha, it looks entertaining. And I mean Chandler BING! ;) It's worth a shot. Can't be worse than some of these movies that have come out lately.

I'm thinking of going to work full time. It'll be nice to have the extra money, and if I get the right schedule I can keep full time through the next school full semester. Arg, I hate full time though, it's son mundane and annoying. If only we could all just work our dreams jobs yeah? Well, that's what those are.."DREAM" job. Like you'll most likely only have a good job in your dreams.

Anyway don't have much to say...just bored at home.

<3 Hetty

Friday, April 17, 2009


K- Yay it's Friday! But bad thing....I don't know where I left my phone! I got to work and it wasn't in my purse! =0 Now I know it shouldn't be a big deal, but it makes me so anxious to not know where something is. Especially my phone, that has a lot of info in it! *Pulls out hair*

Anyway, I'm not really excited for the weekend. I have a paper to write and a project to finish. Apparently when you go to school you don't have much free time anymore. Or I'm just horrible with time management, which is probably the case.

So, instead of hanging out and having fun I'll be doing school work. How totally awesome! Hopefully it doesn't get too nice and sunny out or it will make me feel worse!

Good times...

April Snow!

Wow! Blizzards in April! Who would have thought?

One thing I do suggest though on nights like that--Sledding!

As soon as I got of work we went and picked up our 13yr old cousin to spend the night and I, the genius that I am, thought it would be the coolest idea to go to WalMart (Hell!) and buy a cheapo sled!

We get the sleds, grab some grub and head up to Rock Canyon Park. Now if you've never heard of Rock Canyon Park you should! It's a huge park that has a kind of "bowl" in it. GREAT for sledding! By the time we get there it's already 2am BUT WHO CARES! We didn't. It was snowing, we had our dog our sleds and full bellies. We were ready to go.

Within minutes we were soked, my jeans would not stay on my body, the snow was so deep it was up to our dogs neck (Keep in mind he's an Australian Shephard). He had to LEAP through the snow just to move! The hill was perfect, on top of having a laugh every time that you went down the hill our dog would run and try to jump on with you!

Anyway, by 3am neither of us could feel our toes so we figured it would be the best time to head home now.

I'll have to tell you, that was the most fun I've had in a long time. I don't know why? It was just a blast.

So--the snow has melted away by mid day today, probably the last we'll see of it until next year.
I'll miss the snowboarding but I wont miss the cold.

I'm ready for the heat!

Well I ought to get back to work!

Later days!

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

Weather, Finals, Work....yeah..


So--Annoying is the only word that comes to mind when I think of the last couple weeks.
The weather has been UP, down, UP, down--Warm, cold, warm, cold. And now it's snowing!

I have finals in the next to weeks and am not looking forward to them at all! In fact I have a huge hunch that I'm not going to pass one of my classes. No ones fault of course but my own. I'm a slacker to the fullest and am not afraid to admit it.

Work--Well what is there to say about work other than I am 95% sure that most people I work with and talk to at work would have not survived a week back in the 1500's. In fact I do not understand how they survived a week in this day and age! Some peoples children, for serious!

The one thing I'm looking forward to is summer vay kay! No more school, hot weather, everything will be awesome!

Oh and did I mention I really don't know what the hell I'm going to do when I "Grow up"...the past 2 years it's been Graphic Design, Graphic Design. But the more classes I get into that subject, the more I realize I'm probably not that talented to be a Designer. Maybe I should just go back into Marine Biology--You don't need to be just need to freaking study your butt off right? Which again, something I'm horrible at..

WTF am I going to do?

God only knows unfortunately..

<3 Hetty

Monday, April 6, 2009


Wow, Mondays!

All I have to say is Mondays really do make the rest of the week feel like it will be hell!
They are busy, they point out the obvious fact that you have 4 more days of work until god sets you free on the weekend.
Also I'd REALLY like it if people at my work would stop getting so butt hurt by the fact that I'm NOT happy to work here! Ha ha, It's not going to be my career, it's a means to an end. It's what I do till I get done with school.

Unfortunately this is their career for some.

Anyway, not only is work annoying but home is becoming brothersome-When we aren't there!
My adorable 1yr old Auzzie is chewing EVERYTHING in site when I leave for work! People are saying to crate him while I'm away, but it makes me feel bad he's in there all alone unable to move.

Maybe it's best though, he'll feel safe with his chew toys and I'm only gone for 4 hours. That's not so bad.
I will definitely have to give it a try and see how he handles it.

So-I saw Fast and Furious this weekend. (Not by choice I might add, I wanted to see "I love you, Man")
I will have to say it wasn't horrible. It was nice to see all the originals all back in the movie. Although my favorite actress (SPOILER) dies.
Vin Deisel does need to work on his "emotional" side though, he's horrible at acting sad.

Well yeah, that's all I have to say for now! I'm just bored at work and can't think straight.

Love much,

Thursday, April 2, 2009


So I suppose it's Thursday now. Who knew!?

I had to watch my nephew again, this time it wasn't so pain staking since there was no more blood curdling screams coming from the little gremlins mouth. Seriously though he is adorable and I'm lucky to be his Auntie.

Ever have a day to your self and feel somewhat lost? That was kind of like my day today.
I was basically alone, despite the sleeping baby, and I felt lost. It was a strange feeling.

It didn't really feel like I was in the right place at the right time or something? Yeah- I really don't know either.

Anyway, I'll probably miss class again tomorrow and end up playing my addiction till work!

Much love!

April Fools Day!

Well Hello,

So It's April Fools day, and in a way you could say I'm fooled!
I've fooled myself into thinking that my life was wonderful perfect! Who doesn't try to make their life look better than it is? ( Don't answer that because a lot of people probably don't! =D )

Anyway, I'm hoping to finally start over with how I feel. I'm lacking one thing though, the support from my loved one. He doesn't seem to be has driven as me, which makes me feel weighted down. BUT that's not an excuse! Right?

It's time for us all to become more self aware! If you feel lazy..You probably are! If you feel FAT you probably are! If you feel like there is much more to do with your life...There probably is!
And it's time that we all take control and make those much needed changes. America is lazy, and I don't know about you, but that doesn't make me happy!

SO! Today on the day of April Fools, lets fool the people in our lives who think we'll never change! AND CHANGE!!!!

=) So much love!
