My Dream

I love dreaming. You can experience things that would never really normally happen. Its great! I had a couple of different dreams last night, but I'll only share one because it has to do with a certain someone I haven't introduced yet. So I plan on killing two birds with one stone. Tellin' my dream and introducing! So here we go!
Oh cats. :) Never been much of a cat fan. I don't know why, I grew up with them. They just don't please me. That's why my dream makes me laugh! So without further adieu... A mean man ...we will call him ...Mean Man, so Mean Man was wanting to take over all small creatures. Mainly puppies and kittens. Some of the kittens and puppies would turn over to the mean side and it felt so sad! Daniel and I were trying to scramble to save as many as we could. It seemed they were everywhere. I, all of a sudden, remembered a particular kitten named Darna who I had a special spot in my heart for. I needed to find her and make sure she was ok! I searched and searched! I finally found her in an abandoned baseball field behindd the bleachers. She was very weak. I grabbed her and held her close. I would pet her slowly trying to bring the life back to her. She finally woke up and as I held and rubbed her she became more aware and filled with life! It was such a relief to my heart! I had saved Darna!....And that was the end of my dream. Random. But now you may all be asking. "Who is this 'Darna'?"
I shall tell you! Darna is the new kitty Dan and I own! My families cat had kittens and they were so cute and the idea of a pet sounded so nice and homey to me. So...we now own a cat! But my dream of love and homey-ness is gone. I still don't enjoy the cat species. Darna and I have a very love-hate relationship. Yeah, she is cute and entertaining. But she scratches! And her new entertainment is my hair! Any chance she gets she is jumpin and pouncing at it! Which lots of times ends up being my face. Daniel loves her and is completely patient with her.
Back to my dream. I wake up feeling somewhat fond feelings for Darna. I get out of bed to go find her. I open the door and RAAARRR! she pounces right toward me! Any fantasies I might have had of our friendship disappears. Sigh...

Oh, hello Darna!

In case you were wondering, Darna is tagalog for "Wonder Woman".
Nice name huh? Though Ruby informs me she will continue to call her Skittles. (That was the name Ruby, my lil sister, had come up with.)

Happy Family!! ;)

Family Visit and Bear World!!

I LOVE when my family gets to come visit Daniel and I! I always miss them so much, so when a visit comes along it makes my whole month! My family (not all of them) got to come visit for a week over Memorial weekend. It was a happy week for me! Unfortunately the weather wasn't very nice so we couldn't play outside as much as I had hoped. But we did get the chance to go to Yellowstone Bear World. Dan and I had never been before and so we were super excited to go with our Fam! What is Bear World you may ask? Its a little park that has lots of different Idaho wildlife. You drive around in separate gated areas to see the different animals. They have elk, an albino elk, deer, mountain goats, moose, and lots of bears! It also has a cool gift shop, a couple of kiddie rides (which we all enjoyed), and a petting zoo. It was way fun!

My sister Savanah had brought her collection of bandana's. On our Bear World day we decided it was sister bandana day too!! Yeah baby!

My mom is so brave!! She rolled down her window and let this elk get super close!

Lyla looks a little apprehensive and concerned about the idea of us driving so close to all those bears...

This guy was my favorite! My Mom, being the brave woman she is, let him put his paws on her van and stand straight up to our windows! Haha! It was so fun!

Savanah and Storie!! Chonie (Savanah) and Storie are such good friends. Love them!

Lazy dude.

Mother and daughter! Oh I was so happy Ariel and Lyla got to come up too! I love Ariel, and Lyla is absolutely precious! Aren't they both so cute?!

One of the fun rides! This one would lift you up then drop you! I have to point out Ruby's little headdress. Can you see it on her head? Our neighbors little girls let her borrow it and she LOVED it! I think she wore it all week!

Waaaay too small Little Girl! Maybe next time.... :)

Daniel was tired out and decided to rest with the friendly neighborhood deer.

Best Friends!

Trey and Ruby gettin' cuddly!

Yay for Bear World! We all had so much fun!

The rest of the week we had a rainy barbeque with the Kivett's, rented and watched movies, went on a walk to Taco Bell, and showed the Fam the new BYU-I Center. Oh yeah! And I took Savanah and my Mother to Wingers for the first time!
Thank you so much Mom, Ariel, Lyla, Savanah, Trey, Storie, and Ruby for a wonderful, love-filled week! You guys are all so wonderful and I miss you much! Hurry back! ;)

Why Do I love These?!

Merciful! I have never been a huge chip fan. You know, Doritos, Lays, etc. I never bought them, and at parties and such I never really had the desire to put any on my plate. But over the past couple weeks my desires have changed! I love chips! I need the snack often!! Why the change of heart...I have no idea. But I am not complaining! Say hello to a few of my favorites!

A friend at work was eating some of these guys and I had a taste...Yep! I liked them!

I love anything Doritos!!

I, in fact, bought a bag of these last weekend....Aaaaand another one this weekend.

These are one of my new fav's! I just finished eating some...:)

Yummm.....!!! I love all these tasty snacks!
