This is my personal thoughts and feelings on various issues and pretty much anything.

So this is a picture of my sister Ashley and I. It was up until this summer I had no idea i even had a sister. Crazy eh? So here is our story:
23 months before i was born Ashley was. My father and her Mother had her but her Mother had my dad sign off all rights to her so that her husband could adopt her. It was when Ashley got to the age of 13 when her parents split up and her father told her he was not actually her dad. She then began her search for our dad. Ashley is now 21 and only found out this summer that our father had died from a short battle with cancer. So after 7 years of investigating and searching high and low it was too late when she found him. She found an obituary online, that is how she found out what she wanted most, to meet her real dad, was no longer a possibility, it was too late. But with this sad upsetting news she also found out she had a sister, me! right away she booked a flight from calgary and hopped on a plane and came to stay with me for only 3 short days. In that weekend we bonded and it was almost like we have always known each other. We acted alike, many thought we looked alike and we had so many similarities. With that the 3 days were over and i had a sister.
2 years ago my mother had a son. Little baby dan! He is the cutest evilest little child ever and he is my 23 month old brother. There is a 17 year age difference. so when i am 40 he will be 23.. thats sad. The point of that all is 2 years ago i was an only child. Now i have an older sister and a younger brother. My life has changed drastically!

what shall i do today..

hmm! its a beautiful sunny day outside and id love to go enjoy it!
this morning i woke up extra early to cook breakfast before i head to work for 9! when i got to work i realized that i was not even supposed to be working today and that i had the day off! theres nothing better! so today i hope to get some shopping in, maybe an hour hike of signal hill? who knows!

so, these pictures are before and after pictures from cleaning my room this past week. this was by far the worst my room has ever been! my poor mother would beg me to clean it everyday but i was never home so i had no desire to! but recently i have been spending a lot more time here so i finally gave in and cleaned it up! and now i love to have friends over and hang out in it and it was just a great thing that had to be done! YAY xoxo!

Halloween!

So this past weekend there was a lot of halloween celebrations going on! It was such a fun weekend. Dressing up is the most fun because you can dress up as whatever you want to be! On Friday i was a lion and on Saturday night i was Katy Perry. There were a lot of really cool costumes this year, some of my favorites being Cindy-Lou Who from the Grinch, and four girls i know dressed up as tetris pieces! They all had different tetris blocks and could fit together in a bunch of different ways. It was pretty awesome!

Tonight is actually Halloween and i feel really bad for all the little ones who look forward to it because the weather is just so awful outside. I have a 2 year old little brother and he is going to dress up as a sea lion! It is the cutest thing i have ever seen. At first my mom had picked out a vampire costume and i made her get a cuter one. I mean soon enough he will be wanting to dress up as super heroes and monsters this might be the last year we get to dress him up as something this cute!

Happy Halloween Friends :)

tumblrbot asked: WHAT IS YOUR EARLIEST HUMAN MEMORY?

I would have to say when it was my third birthday. My mom had hired someone to dress up as Barney. I heard a knock at the door and my mom told me to go answer it. When i did it was indeed Barney the purple dinosaur and i had never been so scared in all of my life. 

Winning is such a successful feeling. I think everyone would agree to wish they had a picture like this when everything else in the world did not matter. At this very moment in my life there was no negative emotions, no hurt, no pain. Even though i had just broken a finger during our cheerleading routine, it did not matter. Our team came first out of near 100 other teams. We were national champions. We were nothing but happy. How many people have this moment in their life captured by a photograph? One moment where nothing else mattered. No drama. Very rare.
