The first item of business is cupcakes. I really am not very good at making cupcakes. I try and fail everytime. Either the cake is dry and disgusting or the frosting tastes gross with the cupcake that somewhat succeeded. It's a real issue. Luckily for me, I have an aunt who is an amazing baker and doesn't fail at cupcakes. So about three weeks ago I went up to South Jordan to help Peggy (my aunt) decorate some cupcakes for her son Nate's farewell that was on Sunday the following week. They all turned out looking very, very appetizing. They were appetizing too! I just enjoy cupcakes, though.
These mini ones Peggy started to decorate, but I helped her finish.
Peggy decorated all of these, though.
Peggy's daughter Megan came and helped us too! Since she lives with the amazing cupcake maker, she already knew how to decorate. She probably knows how to make them too. Anyway, these are the ones that she decorated. They're carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and orange sprinkles.
The second item of business is kind of stupid. At American Fork Junior High the P.E. teachers all take their students to the Jack and Jill's Bowling Alley in Lehi. Well, in my dance class, which is considered a P.E. class, we went bowling. I came in second! Second, I tell you! I always come in dead last and, so the fact that I didn't is the exact reason why this momentous event is being documented. :)
I took pictures too.
( This picture showed me just how short I really am...)
In that same class, the group I am in, which is the three girls above minus one, we had to make up a dance. In that dance I had to do a backwards roll over my shoulder.
This is what it resulted in:
Now, this is the very last item of business, and it's just as much random as the bowling item of business is. I have this neighbor, her name is Lexie. She is a year younger and about a foot taller than me. What's new, right? Well, she, being the lovely person she is, gave a bunch of her clothes to me. The only problem is is that the jeans she gave me are way too long. I could probably make another pair of jeans with all of the excess material. But today, I really wanted to wear these one pair, so I got creative and fixed the problem. Duct tape works wonders on short people!
P.S. If anybody knows how to get pictures side-by-side, let me know. It would be very much appreciated.

Anyway, the point to this post is that when I got on to the Internet my home page had an article on how text lingo is creeping it student' writing skills. I was utterly shocked by this! Really, student's are turning in papers with the actual lingo it in? With things like LOL, OMG, UR, C, and Charactrz. And the worst part is that the kids know that they're making the mistakes. One of the high school kids-he's 17-they interviewed, said he catches himself making the mistakes all the time and that he along with everybody else use it because they're lazy. Well, that's obvious, but really? I was a little peeved by this and so I decided to share why I am such a stickler with my correct punctuation, correct grammar, and anti-LOL, OMG, and word shortening text lingo. It's a good habit to make.. Just sayin' :)
If you want to read the article just click here. Please, enjoy.
P.S. Part of the article said that part of text lingo is smiley faces like so: :) And I used one at the end of my sentence... I guess that is the only exception to my annoyance. I actually very much like smiley faces. :)

I watched this movie today. It's creepy. Good, but creepy. Let's just say I'll probably be paranoid-of pedophiles who want to kill me-for the next few days. Or weeks.
On the bright side, I watched this yesterday!
Joseph Gordon-Levitt a.k.a Tom Hansen is a babe.
And on the even brighter side, I get to make this tonight!!!
It's Creme Brulle for all of you deprived people who don't know what it is. I'll be more than happy to make you some; just as long as I get some too, of course! :)

Please go HERE to watch the video. For some odd reason my computer wouldn't upload it, so we're just gonna have to do it the hard way... sorry.
As I was listening to this song, I was thinking about the other version. You all know which version I'm talking about, and I can probably be safe in saying you are singing (in your head) a particular part which makes the song basically a play boy magazine. Anyway, I was thinking about it and how acceptable it is today to play those kinds of songs on the radio. Actually, even worse songs like that are playing on the radio now. It's really sad and scary. To think that my kids will be growing up with things.... worse than that.
Then, as I was thinking some more, I thought about my sister Ashley and how she decided to delete all of the pirated music on her iPod. I helped her do this, and I watched her when we were done. It's like a light bulb plopped inside her. She seriously glowed. It's not like she was all smiley or whatever, but she was just, oh, I dunno, brighter. And as I was thinking yesterday, I thought about how my iPod is filled with rap and probably not the best music I could be listening to, so I made a resolution. I am going to follow my sister's example with deleting my pirated music as well as music that is not-with lack of a better word-uplifting.
I was reminded of this resolution this morning too as I woke up. My iPod is my alarm, and the song that came on was Don't Trust Me by 30h!0. Enough said.
I will share with you some of my most favorite songs. Click HERE, HERE, HERE, and I guess we'll just stop HERE. haha those four songs don't even begin all of my favorites, but they are just some of my tops. Hope you enjoy! :)
