What Would I Do Without Her?

I honestly can't remember
what I used to do to entertain myself
before this sweetheart
so kindly entered our family.
I love her so much.

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs

Go see it NOW!
. . . I saw it on Halloween with Thomas. . .
because we didn't want to go to any lame parties.
It was so so cute! I highly recommend it.

Preferably in 3D so you get to wear these little beauts.

(yes we were dressed up for Halloween)
He as a football player and I as a baseball player.
. . . Just a little warning. . .
the mayor in CWACOM is creepy. . . but he was kind of my favorite.

What Shall I Be?

So for Halloween this year I have come up with 3 Ideas
and I would love it if you could help me choose which one to be.

So here it goes. . .
In no particular order

1. Medusa

2. Mad Scientist

3. Fortune Teller/ Gypsy

I got these pics from the Internet, that is the reason for the different sizes, not because I am trying to sway your decision.

Hello Beautiful

So I was just looking on the internet at cars I cannot afford
. . . kinda a favorite passtime of mine. . .
and found this.

Someday it would be nice to have one. HA HA HA.
. . .I'll keep dreaming. . .
Cause this one is used and 3 years old, and its still 43,000 buckaroos.

Maybe I should just be grateful for what I have.

Sounds like a good plan to me.

Life is good, I am happy.

Here She Is! . . . Introducing Miss Mariah Elle McLaws

It has been too long since I last posted, BUT I think you will forgive me after you see this. . .
I mean, after you have seen her. . .since I don't think most of you have!
So here she is. . . Miss Mariah!

These were taken with my phone, so they aren't super clear, my apologies.

7lbs and 20inches

She loves to stretch, it's so stinkin cute.


(I wish you could see the pure bliss on his face when he's holding her)


It is so sweet when Mariah cries and my mom picks her up, because she almost immediately stops crying.

Our family couldn't be happier. Honestly. . .we love her SO MUCH and can't get enough of her! Welcome girlfriend! We are so glad you are with us!

*yes I added two new photos.

My life lately has consisted of PAIN.
Not ordinary, "Oh I have a headache" pain,
but some real sucky, " I feel as if I might die" pain.
. . . Equation numba One. . .
title: wake boarding

My head + A wake board= Pain

Explanation: I don't really have legit one,
so basically I was going along wake boarding,
being careful to stay in the wake because I cant do anything cool,
and I did a face plant. . . and ate it soooo hard.
Hard enough that somehow the board went behind me,
then over my shoulder to hit me in the cheek.
"Is that physically possible?" you might be thinking.
My only answer is, " I guess so"

. . .Equation numba Two. . .
title: wisdom teeth

my mouth - four teeth = Pain

Explanation: I got my wisdom teeth out.
IV, Laughing gas, the whole shee-bang.
I ate mashed potatoes and ice cream for like 5 days.
Luckily for me I did not swell,
and didn't start hurting til day 5 or 6,
when I started eating real food.
If you would like, since I don't have a picture of the day it happened,
you can imagine me looking like this. . . even though I didn't swell too bad.

This is me a couple days afterwards with my Whole Grain friends.

. . .that is all. . .

Lake Trip

SO. . . yesterday I got to go to the lake. . . FINALLY! I had a blast. I love my friends and our group right now. So fun. My friend, Thomas Hogle, took Vianca, Kristina, Jason, Clayton, Fletcher, Lane, and I out to Saguaro for a bit of fun in the sun.

I didn't attempt wakeboarding yet, but maybe next time.
Yesterday, I basically conquered the tube. . . and gave myself whiplash haha.

Here are a few pics of our adventure. . .

PS: We went to Los Taquitos afterwards and let me tell you, it has never tasted so good.
We were starving, and it just hit the spot. I ate my burrito like a savage.

My Girls! . . .well, two of them.

Our Captain (aka: thomas)

Clayton, just chillin.

I asked Kristina to pose with the sunlight so perfectly behind her,

and this is what I got. Love her.

kristina, vianca, and me

Vianca and Jason had matching sunglasses, so I took a picture of their twinner-ness.

Fletcher on the tube

Lane and Clayton after getting thrown off. . . you can't tell, but Clayton is pulling up his pants in this picture hahaha. . . he informed me of this when he was looking at my camera.

I had so much fun and I am looking forward to more amazing lake trips this summer with my friends, slash learning how to wakeboard.

Good Times

My reading as of late has consisted of this:

and this:

When I opened the latter to begin reading, I found this:

It was probably one of the greatest nights ever. Ryan is the best cause he didnt even read Harry Potter and he came with me. Seriously when I found it I laughed for like 5 minutes. I love and miss my best friend Ry Dix in Croatia.

Bon Fires and Walmart

A couple weeks ago my friends and I went out to the desert and had a bonfire, it was a great night filled with smores, hot dogs, horse shoes, and a wholesome game of Bull S***. Good times. Here are a few pics of the night.

Annie has a sweet Polaroid camera.

We are H-core

and for your entertainment. . . one night we got bored. . .

which for our friends is never a good thing. . .

A few years ago Annie went though a "pillow making" stage. We found some cotton badding in her room and decided to make ourselves look prego. . . and go to Walmart.

It was awesome.

Scorpion Attack

Last week I was being my awesome self and crushing cans. In case you didn't know, my family drinks a TON of soda. . . we joke that its a good thing we don't drink. . . cause we'd be alcoholics.

. . . .

Anyway, I was crushing cans because I had nothing better to do and a SCORPION started to crawl out of one of the cans I had just demolished. My first thought was how did that survive? Then I started freaking out cause it was going to get away. . . and it did.

. . . .

Because I was taking THIS picture

. . . and I couldn't find our blow torch fast enough.

So moral of the story:

make sure the scorpion is paralyzed BEFORE you

run off to get your camera so you can blog about it.

On our way to Thatcher a couple weeks ago we were going through the McDonald's drive thru and this was in front of us

. . .What. The. Ferret. . .?

Please note the following;

-Bumper sticker

-license plate

-license plate holder

-and last, but certainly not least the wolf dream catcher sticker.

All I can ask is WTF?

. . . In case you forgot what a ferret is here are a few pictures of the little vermin.

Happy Easter!

Familia Vacation

Yes I am fluent in Spanish. . . anyway. . . for spring break my parents, Rachel and Chad, and Tanner and I went to California. Good times. First we went to
Knotts Berry Farm.

Needless to say. . . we had a good time.

It was Chad's first time and there was a total of like 100 people there. Which = walking on rides. Sheer perfection. Plus the weather was to die for.

Me and Tanner we SO excited, we just had to take a picture. . . lately I have discovered that I have a lazy eye, which is really unfortunate.

Rachel and I are. . . Awesome. . .

Tanner and my Padre. . . Tanner being the schmuck I love.

After riding a lot of rides.

By the end of the day everyone was ready to go back to the hotel.

I was so dang tired. . . my hair+California= suckfest

The next day my parents and Tanner and I went to Disneyland

I truely believe it is the Happiest Place on Earth.

There weren't TOO many people there, which was nice. We were able to go on every ride we wanted at least once.

This is before Splash Mountain waiting in line.

. . . and After. . . You get a heck of a lot wetter than I remembered.

If you are wondering why I am wearing an ASU lanyard, its cause I had to represent because our basketball was playing. . . and we won that game.

California is so fun especially when you are with your family/the people you love. The only sad thing was I never saw Belle, who is my favorite princess, because she was the only one with brown hair when I was younger.

So I plan on going back to Disneyland for my birthday in May. . . if anyone wants to join. . . so far its just me going. haha. No but seriously, I want to go.
