Talk of the day

Kylie: We're both Republican correct?

Jess: Yes

Kylie: Good I feel better about our friendship.

Kylie: It's not like we ever talk about politics.

Jess: "I hate Obama" "Me too" "That was a great talk!"


So does this mean you want your blanket back?

Oh, I'm so irritated! First the Jazz lose and then I find this!?!?! lovely. Not like I cared about him but still ... talk about a depressing night! Oh, but what did he tell me? "I'll change your mind" about not trusting guys ... talk about a player! At least at the end of everything I'll have an education .... and a better job (if you know what I mean) HAHA!

Devil Minion Birds

Kylie: Hello?
Amanda: Hey, are you close?

Day 27: Something I'm afraid of

This is probably a ridiculous fear, but nonetheless it is one of mine. I'm afraid of being alone. Not like alone by myself for a couple of days but being alone in the sense of life. Never finding someone to share this crazy adventure with. I know it's irrational but I guess this fear comes because so many people walk away without any explanation. It's just hard to deal with that time and time again. Hence why this is something I'm afraid of.

Day 26: A picture of something that means a lot to me


Lately friends mean a lot to me, family included. I've just realized how many people only come into your life for a short while till they get what they want and then leave at their own convenience. It's happened to me too many times to count and it always leaves me heartbroken. I tend to have high expectations I guess but seriously it never ceases to amaze me how much people say when they don't in fact mean it. It's never really about anybody else but themselves. I'm grateful for the friends I do have that realize any relationship requires give and take. It seems that everyone is becoming more and more selfish. I'm guilty of this at times. I don't know what I would do without the friends I do have. You are all the best and are what keeps me going. You're all such amazing people and I look up to you more than you'll ever know.


Eric and Andrew

Eric Bowley and Andrew de Torres... 2 guys I would LOVE to meet. They're flat out amazing! If only I had known this when I was within 20 feet of them at the Owl City concert. It's one of my major regrets but hopefully they will continue to tour and maybe stop by Salt Lake. Until then I'll continue with my iPod on repeat. In my recent The Scene Aesthetic blog stalking I found a quote from the two of them. It's simple but there's something about it that I fell in love with.....

"We're the kids that got sick of people telling us we couldn't, so we did."
- The Scene Aesthetic

Me and some family members. More specifically Popsicle and Hunter.
Yes. We are Jazz fans.

Day 23: a picture of you and the person you've been closest to longest

Kylie & Wes!

Wesley is the friend I've been closest to the longest. She was the reason my high school years didn't completely kill me off. She is so much fun! I love this girl!!! We always have a blast and do some crazy things ie: cemeteries, chili's, bowling, blasting music, decorating people's door steps and much more. Our families have known each other for quite some time and we go way back. I can't wait for summer so we can continue our shenanigans!


Day 22: Something that confuses me

Oh Dear! What confuses me? So much. I'm blonde. And even though that's not the only reason, I feel it is a key factor. Here's my list of a few things that confuse me. . .

1. People stopping when they get off the escalator
2. People taking the elevator to 1 floor away
3. Braking for a green light
4. What men see in Megan Fox
5. Politics
6. Men
7. Why and how Stonehenge was built
8. Packaging on kids toys
9. Shape Up shoes
10. Unicorn strobe lights

There are many more but those are just the ones I can think of currently.

Day 21: Something that makes me happy

OWL CITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Adam Young is pretty much amazing....and attractive, we'll just put that out there. His music amazes me and it seriously puts a smile on my face every time, without fail. He is a down to earth guy and has a passion for what he does. His music is something that definitely makes me happy! I can't wait till May 17!!!!


Day 20: somewhere you'd like to travel

New York City. Simple as that.

Day 19: Someone you miss

Right now there doesn't really seem to be someone I miss.... Everyone I love is close to me and plays a regular role in my life. The only one I seem to be missing is my prince charming...
but hey that can wait... I want to get my degree and start my career. Who knows, maybe by then he'll have the right size shoe. As for now? I'm not fretting about it.

Day 18: A picture of the cast from your favorite tv show

Okay so I must admit... a while ago when everyone was obsessed with The Office I was like what the crap. It looked so weird and dumb to me and I didn't understand it. Garrett has all the seasons so I thought I'd start watching them. Come to find out we have every season but the first. Well my good friend Jess surprised me with the first season she found it while she was shopping the day after Thanksgiving. Well needless to say that was all it took. It became my favorite show. I wasted so much time watching all the seasons! I love Jim though. He is the best. He's so sarcastic and is constantly playing jokes - I love it!

And I wouldn't be Kylie if I didn't acknowledge the fact that I have never missed a season of the Bachelor (or Bachelorette for that matter) I love this show. I know half the time it's ridiculous and they rarely stay together but there's something about it that gets me every time. Watching people "fall in love" is really pretty cool. I guess i'm just a hopeless romantic and this somehow gives me hope that one day I'll have a happy ending. This last season was one of my very favorites! Brad and Emily... oh my goodness I have never hoped that a bachelor couple make it more than them. I love them!!! I admire both of them for being so real and not caring what people think. I must admit I cried during the finale. I know it's stupid but they just seemed real together and lets be honest... I'm a little jealous of what they have. So yeah The Bachelor. . . It's great!

Day 17: iPod on shuffle - first 10 songs

1. Maybe We Should Just Sleep On It - Tim McGraw
2. Shut Up and Drive - Rihanna
3. I tried - Bone Thugs-N-Harmony
4. The Saltwater Room - Owl City
5. Fergalicious - Fergie
6. All Summer Long - Kid Rock
7. Whoa Now - Louque
8. Everything - Michael Buble
9. Red Ragtop - Tim McGraw
10. Big Yellow Taxi - Counting Crows & Vanessa Carlton

Well that was interesting. . .

Day 16: Someone I would trade places with for a day

Alright, so it's hard to narrow this down but if I could trade places with anyone it would come down to these two people.

The first would be a guy around my age. I find them so confusing it's irritating. I figure that if I got to trade places with one of them then maybe I'd understand how and what they think about life because for the life of me I can't seem to figure this one out. Trading places with a guy would just answer all my "why" questions I have about all the things they do. They're just confusing and make zero sense to me.

The second would be Taylor Swift. I mean if we're being honest this girl has everything: she's beautiful and gorgeous, thin, popular, basically a legend. Who wouldn't want to be her. As much as you try to hate her you just can't. She has everything.


Day 15: Someone I could never imagine my life without

My niece and nephew, hands down!

These little guys make me so happy! I could never imagine not having them in my life. They are so much fun to be around and constantly make me laugh. I enjoy spending time with them and I always try to see them as often as possible.

Hunter is hilarious he is 4 years old and quite the handful. He is way big and is amazingly smart. He's my best friend and is constantly watching out for me. If he knows you've been rude to me watch out, he will forever remember it. He is full of energy and always says the funniest things such as, "Kylie, stop it! You're making my feelings go crazy." You can always count on him to cheer you up! I love him!

Mckinley is the cutest little thing you'll ever see. She is 20 months old and is a handful. She has quite the attitude and is a total girl! She loves her dolls and is always changing and feeding them. She also LOVES to paint nails... she walks around saying, paint it, paint it. It always puts a smile on my face. She is adorable when she sings and dances and it always makes me so happy. I could just snuggle and squish this girl all day long... I love her!

Recently I also got a new niece. Her name is Madelynn and she was born March 1 at 4:59 am. She's going to be a handful I can already tell. I have only seen her once but I can't wait to see her again today!

Day 14: Something I hate

Something that I hate? When people are....

this absolutely drives me nuts! It seems like in the world today this is all that people ever are. It drives me crazy when people act one way and 2 seconds later they are the polar opposite. Why can't people just be who they really truly are. I try my hardest at this and If I don't like you, It's pretty obvious. As harsh as that sounds I don't like playing games and pretending to be someone I'm not. It's a ridiculous game that people play and how they keep up with how they act around each certain individual makes no sense to me. It seems like way too much effort to be so many different people. I guess that's why their stories eventually never add up or connect in any way. News flash to certain individuals.... you can only fool people for so long.

Day 13: something I love

Boating! I love it. There is nothing better or more fun to me than sitting on our boat during the summer. It seems to be the one place I am genuinely care free and happy. It's intoxicating really... music, sun, family, relaxing... it's the greatest. I love spending the day on the boat even if we're just sitting in the middle of the lake. It's the most enjoyable thing in the world to me.
