my co-worker probably is fearing for my sanity.
i can't move a muscle.
ive been listening to 'delicate' by damien rice nonstop as of late...go listen. its so goooood.
i also have been eating ridiculous amounts of chocolate...what else is new.
i'm gonna be a balloon in all the wedding pictures to come, just you wait.
3 days till i go to califoooooooo-nia.

Fraulein Maria (aka nicole linnae booth)
(literally. thats one of the pools i'll be watching the kids at.)
Dont be jealous. ok do be jealous.
rememeber how i was going to go back to my hospice patients this summer? we'll instead i'll be nannying on the big island, sitting in the pool/beach/swimming with dolphins/tending adorable kids.
Well, I am working for my hospice patients a little bit before i fly out, but i fly out the day after Jackie and George tie the knot.
crazy, right? Nothing good ever happens to me. I've mostly been to the western U.S. and canada once for some icecream. and i'm spending my summer on an ISLAND.
how do you solve a problem like maria?
send her to paradise, thats how.
maybe i'm going to come back a different ethnicity. like. tanese.
maybe i'll come back a jungle woman.
maybe the plane will crash and i'll get 'LOST'. (i'll be kate if i can find myself a jack shepard.)
maybe i'll get eaten by a shark while snorkeling.
maybe prince charming will show up and he'll teach me how to surf and we'll fall in love.
maybe i'll be singing 'rock-a-hula' the whole way there on the plane.
maybe this is toooooooooooo good to be true.
(oh did i tell you? the adorable mom is the marine wildlife director at the hilton..nbd i'll be swimming with dolphins this summer.)
This is where i'll be the majority of my day with the litte kidlies:
God bless you, Hawaii.

Heather is the most wonderful girl, and I look up to her so much. (here comes the tears again.)She inspires me to be a better person, and i know that we were meant to be bffs. our older siblings were friends when i lived back in Fremont, and somehow me and heath didn't know eachother. Come to find out, when she grew up...she was bffs with my bffs from elementary. smalllll world. So, mine and heathers love just worked out perfectly. I'm so glad i got to know her when i was 16...and so glad i convinced her to come to Utah State with me :) I told her if she came, i guarentee she'd meet a hot, good mormon boy she could marry. badda bing badda boom! (Cayl, sorry that i threatened you on our first double date we took together. haha. i knew you wouldnt break her heart, i was just teasing..ha..)
Anyways, i can't tell you how happy it made me to see her walk out of the temple with her wonderful hubby, Cayl. They are so in love. and so perfect. and so forever.
Thank heavens liv brought a camera..and thank heavens she successfully made 150 beautiful cupcakes too. (you should book her!)
Also, yes...Cayl is singing 'Unchained Melody' to her, for their first dance.
Isn't she just glowing? She is by far the most beautiful bride I've ever seen. I dare anyone to try and outpretty her on their wedding day, because i guarantee they can't. i love you heath!

this time, i'm in kaysville.
my residence for the summer of 2010.
i can't sleep.
i have a headache.
and i've already peed like 6 times in the past 2 hours..
its making it so i wont fall asleep.
diabetes? no.. bladder problem? (wink wink.)
I finished up finals on thursday. they sucked.
I passed my APT test. (aka i needed to pass it to get into my social work program!)
i left good ol Oakridge 6c. it was hard to leave, surprisingly.
I said goodbye to my friends who are leaving for the summer...mostly to sell somewhere random across the country. boo. i hate that.
i have a strange obsession with grasshopper thin mint cookies as of late. maybe i bought a whole package of them the other night. maybe in two hours they were gone. maybe i ate them all, maybe i didnt.
The princess and the frog? Disney movie? takes place in baton rouge? and the BAYOU?
"GGGEEOOOWINN DOOWWUUHN THA BAAYYOUU!"
but seriously, its one of my favorite disney movies,
Magic erasers? MAGIC. they get any stain off ANYTHING.
One month till Jackie and George tie the knot. YES!

if it takes a while to load..just hold your horses. its worth it.
I've been following NieNie for quite sometime now. shes amazing. you should read her blog.
#19 on my list, meet Stephanie Nielson before I die.
click here to read her story about the plane crash and her life since.
I have a final tomorrow at 9.
so naturally, I'm blogging.
Today i studied for 5 hours. 3 of those being at a stats S.I. i'm going to fail that class..and i have accepted it.. but at least i tried, right? and my future hub wont care if i cant do statistics..right?
Speaking of future hubs... WHERE ARE YOU? you should think about stoping by this summer. yes? no? What are your feelings on this?
I took a sleeping pill last night at 4 in the morning because i needed sleep. i havent taken one since november! let me tell you.. MY have i missed those random dreams of monkeys riding on camels backs going to save the world. woooooweeee. such a treat for finals week.
Friends of the Elderly ended last week. We had a sing along. it was adorable... imagine all the old people just singin their little hearts out. I kept requesting all these old songs that they would know...like.. 1940's songs.. and the other volunteers where like.. what the heck? who are you? HA. maybe you don't know, my names Nicole and i basically speak/breathe OLD.
I am on the verge of tears right now due to PMS, stress, and the fact that i just ate my weight in chocolate.
Today i laughed really hard when my friend was telling me that she spilled her gatorade in her backpack...and in it was all her textbooks, ipod, phone, etc....and all she screamed out at the silent library was... "NO!!! NOT MY CALCULATORS!!!!" yes, calculators plural. hahaha. oh allie. bless your heart.
I move home on friday. My summer will consist of working as a hospice aide again. arent you so excited to hear my stories? i'm so excited to be with them again.
I guess its time for sleep.
