The Grandies

My Grandparents. I don't know how to put them into words. They are all so amazing.
How lucky am I that I have 4??! Super lucky, that's how lucky.
Let me introduce to you 4 wonderful people that everyone should have as grandparents.

First of all, meet Grandma Agle, the most capable lady on this planet and mother of 7 wonderful people. She does it all folks, and makes delicious meals. Grandma has the best taste in purses, accessories and clothes, never leaving a pop of color out of her outfit on any given day. Not only is Grandma a hard worker and stylish woman, she always puts a smile on my face when I see her sweet smile. She is also a wicked card player and seems to be on a winning streak for the past, oh I'd say, lifetime. What a wonderful lady, I do love her so.

Now, meet Grandma's hubby, Grandpa Agle, the man with the coldest feet, but warmest heart. Whenever I think of dear Grandpa he is in his sheepskin slippers, a hawaiian shirt, wearing his Indiana Jones hat, with a wonderful smile on his eyes. This man is incredible and says the most inspiring things. Grandpa is one of the hardest workers I know, but, believe me, he knows how to enjoy life more than any person I know. I sure love him very much.

Ok, lets take a little trip across the country from Southern California, across the Atlantic Ocean and into England.

Hello, this is Nana Tyler. Nana. Where do I even begin with this outstanding woman? Well, Nana is the softest spoken lady and the wisest lady, too. How can one woman know exactly what to say to me that will get me through the day? I don't know but Nana does and it rubbed off on her amazing daughter. Nana only helps and thinks of others, serving all around her. Not only is she a beautiful person inside, she is a gorgeous woman on the outside. She also makes incredible food and smells delicious all the time. I hope one day to be like her.

Please meet Gandpa Tyler. Grandpa is a wonderful photographer and knows so much. Go ahead, ask him any question you want about a camera, history, machines, math, science,weather, anything, and he will give you an answer and explain it. He is also a very kind person, full of love that shows only how a Grandpa can show it. Not only do I love how much Grandpa Tyler knows, I love how he talks, and I'm not talking about his accent. I am talking about his conversations. I could sit and listen to him for hours. Wonderful man and blessed to have him in my life.

Well, those are the Grandies! I wish everyone could meet them and know them like I do--they are quite wonderful. I love them ________________THIS________________ much!!!

Happy and Sad

It rained today, I am happy.

I didn't get a Grey's Papya Hot Dog today, I am sad.

I went to the Planetarium show, Journey To The Stars, happy.

I had to walk around a museum when I could be playing in the rain, sad.

I made a delicious lunch today, happy.

My bright pink J. Crew sweater has faded, sad.

I finished all of my homework due tomorrow, happy.

It's going to snow on Friday, sad.

I am going to Serendipity on Friday for Bree's birthday. I am going to order a Summer Bries sandwich and a Can't Say No Sundae. And maybe a Frozen Hot Chocolate. I am Happy.

So Happy.

Vancouver City, Winter Olympics 2010

So...Vancouver. Where is that? Just kidding!! I know it's in Russia...Just kidding again! It is on the West Coast of Canada. To be honest, I really have no idea if Vancouver is just Vancouver Island or more than that. But I do know this: It's where the Olympics are this year! Woohoo! It's not like I will have time to watch it but I can still be excited!

You must watch THIS. Now, if I had known that Vancouver was and experience instead of just a place, I would have joined team USA.

Breathtaking?? Yes. That is just one of the words that comes to mind.

I am currently experiencing my very first snow day ever. And let me tell you, it is wonderful.

Here's an inside look to what it looked outside.

Have fun diggin those cars out...

There was no snow about 12 hours before this was taken.

This is what I woke up to. It is actually very beautiful and I love having this tree outside my window.

What did I think about all day? This. Here is the preview. I saw the movie last week with Bree and Emily. I just finished the book last night. I predicted I was going to like the book more than the movie. When it's been out longer and more people have seen it, I will fill you in my thoughts. Here is a sneak peak of my my thoughts: I need a box of Kleenex.

I also thought about This along with This, oh and These Feet. And one more: How cute is THIS?? It's my new laptop wallpaper. No, I am not a creeper or a stalker, I just want to marry him. That's all.

I looked at all of those while I listened to my new and old favorite music. My old faves include Jason Mraz and Jack Johnson. I recently rediscovered one of my favorite Mraz songs. I forgot how much I LOVE it. It is quite rare and I would like to share it with you: Halfway Home. Mraz and Jack Johnson always remind me that snow doesn't last forever and Spring and Summer are fast approaching! I'm excited to visit some of the beaches around here!

My new favorites come from the Dear John soundtrack. I love the songs "The Moon" by The Swell Season, "Paperweight" by Joshua Radina and Schuyler Fisk, and "Little House" by Amand Seyfried. All very chill, snow-day music, if I may say so myself.

Here is the most random thing I did today: I watched Disney/Pixar's Monsters Inc. I love that movie and if you haven't seen it in a while and need to smile and need to feel carefree, watch it and all your worries will go away--even if just for a couple of hours.

I have discovered I am quite fond of snow days--especially when they are like this. Next snow day, I am going sledding.

FIT FIT FIT...New Year's Resolution or My School?

This was my first week back at school--let me tell you. It was CRAZY.
Come with me on a walk through my schedule!
Macroeconomics-This class is interesting. I am already confused but so excited about the material! I like to pretend I am all into economics and understand it. This class gives me an opportunity to actually understand a little bit more! How excited! Macro-me!!

Contemporary Retail Management-2 words. PROFESSOR MESSINGER. Janice Messinger. What a woman. She is so successful and has more than enough credentials to teach this retail class. She is "Super-Professional-Woman". She so far has made this class really interesting and has so many great stories.

Sociology- Another amazing person teaches this class. His name is Marc aldsjfiaghiewefigo...or something. Ok, actually, I can't pronounce or spell his last name, that's why we call him Marc. Marc isn't even his real first name. His first name is actually Ajhgohiaofhwerjwjef (The "h" is silent). This guy is young and happy and looks like he is ready to go sailing in his Sperry Topsider and Nautical get up. Sweeet.

Earth Science-Ugh. Science and I have never had the best relationship. We actually hate each other. The lady that teaches this class is Super Nerd and loves her dogs more than her husband. She is really cute but I like that this class is kind of an independent study course. Half of it is online, the other half of class we take field trips. I have my first one next Wednesday. It's going to be at a museum where we look at Science stuff. Sounds fun, eh?

Fashion Marketing- AWESOME. I am so pumped about this class. This guy is really old, loves leather shoe boxes, technology, Costco, his wife and Chico's. What a fantastic mix. He scared me to begin with but once he opened his mouth, the nerves flew away!

Advertising and Promotion-Interesting class. My professor's name is Abimbola Ogansola (not kidding this time). He has a super strong accent from somewhere (maybe Africa??) I don't know anything about him because as soon as he walked in, we learned the Marketing Mix, Promotional Mix and the 8 different types of communication in the Marketing world for the next 3 hours straight. Intense guy but I love the subject matter so far.

Yoga-That's right everyone, I have a Saturday morning class. This is my PE class. Excited? Yes. Painful? HECK YES. But hopefully I come out a more zen-like being. All I have to remember is that summer is coming and that means swimsuits, swimming and the beach! (YES!! I found one in good ole NY!) Must look my best. Oh yes, and breathe in through the nose, and breathe out through the nose. Now...relax in "downward-dog-sitting-on-a-pigeon-eating-a-pretzel" pose...and breathe.
