New Addiction

If you own a Wii and need a new game, this is THE one to get. The other night Jesse and I decided since we have been so good this year that we could each open one present early. And this is the one I MADE him open. I knew he'd love it, what I didn't know was that I would love it so so so much. We opened it on Thursday and have been up past 1 a.m. everday since then. Getting up for work this morning was rough, but I think it was worth it because I am starting to beat Jesse more and more. My arm is so sore from all that pitching and batting, so it's a work out too. Anyway, really if you are looking for a new game.... get this baby!

Things on my mind as of late...

  • I'm thinking about deleting this blog... I don't have enough things to fill it with so that it can continually please my fans. Thoughts?
  • What are in my presents under the tree? I love surprises so so so much. But really can I just open them right now? It's so hard for me to wait.
  • Last night Jesse and I were going to go to Temple square because we both had the night off, then we opted to stay at home instead. At first I was wondering why we're so boring? Then I realized we are never home together and it's so nice to just be home and relax together and watch re-runs. It's such a fun activity.
  • Why are people still talking about the election? Please stop. It won't change.
  • Why can't i just make up my own mind of what I will do after graduation? I just want someone to tell me what to do, but then when people tell me what to do I just want them to stop... how will this vicious cycle end?
  • I miss Deedra living closer.
  • Why won't my parents just move to Orem?
  • I love My package just came, and it was on time, and I could track it the whole time it was in shipping. I love it when you can see exactly where your package is at.
  • Who will send me on What Not to Wear? I could buy so many awesome clothes with $5,000. Somebody out there, let's make a pact, I'll nominate you and you nominate me. And we won't be offended that we got nominated and our friends think we have ugly clothes.
  • Last night, Jesse and I had our own What Not to Wear, kind of. He made me go through my clothes and it was just like on the show when the girl is crying for Clinton and Staci to not throw the things away! Those clothes have sentimental meanings, no ,no, no! But alas, I gave in and have a laundry basket full of clothes for my lucky nieces and sisters and anyone else who wants to dive in.
  • Should I just give in and drink Diet Mt. Dew everyday? Jessica, your thoughts? Wait, I think i'll know your thoughts. Also, I think I deserve the treat.
  • Why can I not wake up in the mornings anymore. And that also means I haven't worked out since my last post that says I LOVE exercising. ha ha well not that long ago, but it's almost been that long since I last worked out.

1. Jesse
2. Oh, I was just doing my thing working at Buckle and he couldn't take my eyes off me. He wouldn't even leave the store! Oh wait- that's because he worked there too. We didn't date or really even talk when we both worked there, but after I stopped working there he asked me on a date.
3. Well, not very long. Our first date was in April, and we dated throughout the summer, but didn't really get serious until the end of the summer. Then we were engaged in December. So, usually we'll say we dated for 7 months. I don't even know.
4. We were engaged for 4 months.
5. We have been married for almost 7 months and we have hated every moment of it. Just kidding. It's been really good.

You might have already done this, so don't worry about it if you have, but I love hearing other people's stories because even if I've heard them before, I always forget.

1. Suzanna
2. Jessica
3. Merri
4. Monica
5. Angelique
6. Chelsy
7. Jerica
8. Tasha
9. Anne
10. And just all my married friends.

Nothing says Thanksgiving like cupcakes

I wish everyday that there was a Sprinkles Cupcakes Store in Utah. But until then, I'll just look at their website and be mad that I can't get this little turkey cupcake in pumpkin flavor.

And, when will someone teach me how to frost my cupcakes as smooth as these ones?

Hopelessly Devoted to You

These are 5-10 things (not people or places) you require everyday in your life. If you have to go without it your day just isn't as good. It might break my heart if I don't have these, I might even cry. So here we go!

1. Chi Flat Iron- I wasn't blessed with Straight, soft, shiny, or very managable hair. So thank you so much Flat Iron Inventor. You really have saved my life!

2. Bio Silk Silk Therapy- Like I said, shiny hair for me? No. Just a little bit from this bottle helps so much and it lasts forever!

3. Gum- It doesn't really matter the flavor or the kind but my favorites are Orbit, Five, and your good old Extra gum. I like it minty, fruity, or spicy. Whatever the flavor, my day just can't go on without gum. Oh and I LOVE those big balls of bubblegum. I'll get them whenever we go to the mall.

4. MAC Make Up- I'm not a crazy, I won't go anywhere without make-up on person... But when I'm getting ready for the day, I'll always put make-up on. It's just how I roll. And now that I've tried MAC, I just can't go back!

5. Toast with spray butter- Jesse will be the first person to tell you that if we are out of bread, it's because I ate the whole loaf. I don't know why I love it so much but I do. Right now I only like the Prarie Grain brand- it just makes the best toast. And with zero cals in the spray butter, you can't go wrong.

6. Gold's gym- Well, I'm not hopelessly devoted per say, but I try to go everyday and the days that I don't make it, I feel like a blob. So it's just better if I go and keep myself happy.

7. My Computer- My blogging/facebook addiction would have never developed to it's full potential if it wasn't for my beloved computer.

TAG- If you read this, you're it! Tell us your favorite things that you can not live without!

6th Picture Tag

I was tagged by Chelsy, and I've seen this on other people's blogs and wondered what my picture would be. So anyway here it is-

Go to your 6th folder and post the 6th picture in that folder. Explain the picture that is posted.

This is my niece Kamrie and nephew Tayson. I can't really remember much about this picture, I think we were all just hanging out at Merri's and this awesome photo happened. Wish I had a better story...

I tag EVERYONE who took the time to read this. Just do it, it's a good surprise to see what the picture is.

Just F.Y.I.

I'm one of those people that gets scared to take tests. It's just nerve racking for me and I don't really know why. I can study until I know it by heart, but I still get so nervous when I walk into the testing center. I have a test tonight and I've been studying a little but I needed a break for blogging to calm my nerves:)

What would I have to talk about if there were no tags?

I've Been Tagged.....

A) The rules are posted at the beginning.

B) Each person answers questions about their sweethearts.

C) At the end of the post, the person then tags people and posts their names; then goes to their blog and leaves them a comment, letting them know they have been tagged.

1.What is your husbands name? Jesse Ellis Call

2.How long have you guys been married? 6 months, next week. Can you believe it's been that long? I know 6 months is nothing, but it just seems like our wedding was a week ago.

3.How long did you date? Like 8 and engaged for 3 1/2 months. It's hard to say how long we really dated because we were off and on for the first, and then a little in the middle and who even knows. We're married now and that's what matters.
4.How old is he? The big 23! So proud of my hubby for turning 23.
5.Who is taller? He is, but guess who will never be able to wear heels again in her life? Me. Because if I do, I tower over him like the jolly green giant.
6.Who can sing best? Jesse for sure. He was in his high school choir, mind you.
7.Who is smarter? Depends on the subject. Football, science, random facts, remembering things from movies: Jesse. Math, Jon and Kate plus 8, crafts, what treats are best: Leandra
8.Who does laundry? Usually me, Except the last few weeks Jesse has been really really good about doing the laundry. AND we're also conducting an experiment to figure out why our towels always smell like 2 days after we wash them. We make sure they are completely dry... any help?
9.Who pays the bills? Me.
10.Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? If you are laying in it then there is Jesse on the right side hogging all the blankets.
11.Who mows the lawn? Jesse, but seriously it looks like a professional has done it when he is done.
12.Who cooks dinner? uh, neither! jk. We take turns pretty evenly. But honestly, it's hard for either of us to make dinner because on weeknights we're getting home at the lovely hour of 9 p.m. Mostly Wendy's cooks us dinner, or we eat rice chex.
13.Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? I think me. I just feel bad and even if I'm not wrong I'll say I am because I hate fighting. But Jesse is really good to say if he is wrong. We've been lucky so far because neither of us have been too stuborn to get over it. Maybe that's because we're still newlyweds and soon we'll learn how to use the silent treatment better:).jk.
14.Who kissed who first? Jesse, Jesse bo besse kissed me first.
15.Who wears the pants? I think we split it pretty good.

Tried it...

Loved it. More info here.

Tuesday, September 23, 2008

You can Quote me on that....

Well this is today's topic for Tuesday Tell all... Oh that's right TTA still exists even though I haven't done it for a hundred years. But I'll be honest, I don't even know what it means. There is no other explanation for it, so I guess my interpretation is that I tell you my favorite quote.

I ALWAYS hear quotes I like, but I never remember them or write them down. So I'll just share one the one I used my senior year in the yearbook.

"Just accept the fact that sometimes you are the pigeon and sometimes you are the statue". -Author unknown

Of Course.

Of course I would get a new i pod and then 5 seconds later they come out with a new one that holds twice as much and is cooler. bleh.

Thursday, September 18, 2008

I change my mind every day.

I'm trying to figure out what I want to do with myself after I graduate. More school? Enjoy my time off and just work? Well, now I'm thinking I might do Hairschool. I would do night school so I could still work and everything. It's just an idea I'm playing with and since I needed a new post, I thought I would share.

Raindrops on Roses

and whiskers on kittens.

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

Brown paper packages tied up with strings

These are a few of my favorite things

I'm starting to get hate mail from my fans. (cough, Jessica, cough) I am so glad that you keep after me, because I was really so close to falling off the blog-o-sphere. So here I am today, vowing to be a better blogger (notice how many posts I have done already today!) by sharing with you a few more of my favorite things...

Family Guy

I used to hate this show. Well, not really hate but I wouldn't leave it on the channel very long. I thought it was really crude and I guess I'm becoming decencitized (spelling?) because now I think it is just funny. Don't judge me. Stewie is just the best!

Itunes+ Ipod

It makes me sick to think of running without an ipod. And Apple is just pure genious for coming up with the whole idea.

SOBE Lean or FUZE Slenderize

MMM and only 5 calories per 8oz serving. These are seriously so good, you would never even think there were hardly any calories in there.


We don't shop there a ton, just because it's not practical for us. We can't go through that much food before it goes bad, but when we do, I'm just so glad about it. They seriously have the best produce. The grapes are amazing and they are one thing that I can go through the whole big fat container by myself. Also, sometimes Costco just surprises you and has cute dresses and coats and clothes. When we have babies I am getting so many of their outfits there. Right now they even have plush baby halloween costumes for 9.99. What a steal, I just only wish I could fit in them.

Biolage smoothing cream

My hair is no model for smooth hair, but this stuff has made a big improvement on what it used to be. It's hard to get this mane tamed, but this stuff helps a lot.

MAC make-up

When I win the lottery, the first thing I will buy is every color of eyeshadow MAC has to offer.
The End.

3 Week Anniversary

Tomorrow marks the 3 week anniversary since I quit Diet Coke. And I know none of you will think this post is dumb because you KNOW how hard it can be to quit it when you drink on EVERYDAY. Things are going good and I'm impressed that I've gone this long. I don't really even crave it anymore... EXCEPT yesterday my boss bought one for me because she didn't know I had quit. And there it was, on my desk, staring me in the face for about 3 hours. I finally had to hide it behind the printer because I didn't want to look at it anymore. I thought I could just save it for a special occasion, but I think it's better if I just keep it out of my posession completely.

Guess who made the wheaties box?

Rumor has it- Nastia Lukin.

It's a slight obsession...

My love for cupcakes. I don't know how it happened, but I just fell in love with them about a year ago. So we bought this giant cupcake pan and viola- I wanna make this and eat it everyday.

Dancing with the Stars

I've never religiously watched Dancing with the Stars before, but I have always wanted too. And this season there are a lot of stars that I actually know and I really wanna get addicted! The celeb I am most excited for is volleyball olympian Misty May-Trainor. It starts in 28 days so I'm counting down and hopefully it will work into my schedule or we're going to have to invest in Tivo:)

White and Nerdy.

Let's be honest, I don't really know what the point of this post is. Mostly it's just that Jesse and I and his parents somehow got on the subject of Donny Osmond tonight. So I guess it's only appropriate that I share my DO moments with the world.

Last year, this man you see here spoke at the Orem Institute of Religion. I was listening to Soldier of Love the whole way there to get myself pumped for the experience. He had recently finished his music video with Wierd Al Yankovic (please watch it on the right of my screen!). And he somehow spent almost the whole hour relating that video to the gospel. ha ha it was nuts but really entertaining. It was a really big stretch, but I guess he tied his celerity moment into the church.

Anyway his whole thing was that he was so nervous to do the video with Wierd Al. But he decided once he got there to just let loose and everyone loved it. And that is how we might feel about sharing info about the church. We might be nervous but we need to just relax and do it. Like I said, kind of a stretch but look at that smile; it's an hour and a half of my life I don't ever want to replace.
These are pictures of Cat and myself in Donny's backyard a couple of years ago. And yes, those are his golden records in the background- he's a little bit country (jesse tells me he was actually a little bit rock and roll. what can ya do) and a soldier of love.

How did I have these connections you might ask? You will see Brandon Osmond to the right of me. Well there you have my celebrity moment I'm still living 2 years later. Jealous of all my celebrity action Annette? :)

Put this thing in my mouth.

It's available in Hamburg... so I guess I gotta find a way to get there.

They've done it again

Let's talk gymnastics

Remember when Nastia tied for 1st place with the chinese baby and then ended up with the Silver??? That was nuts and I understand how they did the scoring and how she ended up with silver, but I definitely feel for her. How crappy to get the same exact score as the girl who gets gold... but somehow end up with silver.

Let's take another trip down gymnastics memory lane.... Shawn Johnson rocked on the dance routine. She had to go first, and kept the highest score til the very last person. I might be biased, but I really thought her routine was better than the other chica. Sorry American girls, I was really cheering for you. But silver rocks too and you have definitely kept gymnastics as one of my fav olympic sports to watch.

One of my favorite surprises...

...When Google spices up their logo. They have done this all during the olympics and usually they do on other holidays. Love it.

Thursday, August 14, 2008

I just love him.

You think this post is about Jesse?!! No Way :) ! We're talking about my boyfriend Michael Phelps here. I can't even believe this guy. This was my favorite M.P. moment- when the U.S. beat France (after France said they were going to SMASH the U.S.) by .08 seconds in the 4x 100 medley Relay, Phelps was so dang excited.

Charlotte Sometimes

I'm going to take a page from Jesse's book and reccommend one of my fav artists to you all! Her name is Charlotte Sometimes and well... she rocks. Don't be alarmed by the crazy picture above. I don't know why people do the things they do, I just like her muuusack.
On the side panel are videos of her songs, you might have already heard some of them. And actually the sidebar doesn't show the best videos, it's mostly just people recording at her concerts. So go look on itunes or something. Just check this lovely lady out. She doesn't sing about kissing girls (although I will admit that song is way too catchy!).


Today is the day I'm telling it all. It may be Wednesday but eh, what can you do?

Opening Ceremonies are in just a few days! Well like two to be exact! I can't believe it, I love the Olympics. We need Tivo so I don't miss everything while we are in Disneyland- oh well Disneyland rocks too. And there will still be lots of stuff to watch when we get back. Anyway the TTA for this week asks- Are you competitive? Which event would you chooseto participate in?
I think I am semi-competitive. Not enough that I am killing everyone to win, but I do like to win. However, I get over losing really easy... like the next day I have forgotten everything. I guess that's why losing every b-ball game in high school never forced me to try harder. jk. We didn't lose EVERY game.
If I was really good and participate in whatever event I wanted to, I would do the track stuff. Those people are so fast and it would be so awesome to finish a mile in 4 minutes or something like that. Second choice- gymnastics. You know how I feel about Keri Strugg. Love her.

Tuesday, July 29, 2008


If you don't know what that stands for... you're stupid. jokes! It's your favorite day of the week! Tuesday Tell ALL!!! da da daaaa and here it is.

What are your favorite summertime treats?

Snow Cones


Home made Icecream!

Okay, there is a little snow cone shack in the parking lot of the Scera Pool in Orem, and those are the best snow cones I have ever had in my entire life. My favorite flavor is Snowberry, which is banana, strawberry and something else I can't remember. Anyway, you can get a scoop of ice cream on the bottom or cream drizzled on the top- I do both. The ice cream is such a nice little surprise when you finally get to it. So yummy. I'm going to go get one tonight and no one is stopping me.

As for the home made icecream, Jesse and I got an ice cream maker for our wedding and we love it! We have used it a couple of times and used the same recipe both times. So good. The first time we did Strawberries and the second time we did raspberries. I'm going to post the recipe as soon as I get home. I got it from Marcie, so I hope she doesn't care that I'm sharing:)
