BLUE through and through?

BLUES are motivated by INTIMACY. They seek to genuinely connect with others, and need to be understood and appreciated. Everything they do is quality-based. They are loyal friends, employers, and employees. Whatever or whomever they commit to is their sole (and soul) focus. They love to serve and give themselves freely in order to nurture others' lives.
BLUES have distinct preferences and have the most controlling personality. Their personal code of ethics is remarkably strong and they expect others to live honest, committed lives as well. They enjoy meaningful moments in conversation as well as paying close attention to special life events. BLUES are dependable, thoughtful,and analytical; but can also be self-righteous, worry-prone and moody. They are "sainted pit-bulls" who never let go of someone or something, once they are committed. When you deal with a BLUE, be sincere and make a genuine effort to understand and appreciate them.

I took a personality color test for my research class. You're probably wondering what this test and a research methods class have to do in common. Absolutely NOTHING. haha We didn't take the test to see what color we were but to see if it was valid and reliable. I am asking you now if you agree with this test: am I BLUE? I agree with some things but not all. Hmm....

every second counts

Lots of pics for this post = update. First picture is of the new bedding mom got me for my room - a plum color. Love it - it looks great. No big deal but just thought since I'm updating on other areas of my life, might as well throw in the pic. Here goes with the updating - I'm going to try not to get Thursday and Saturday mixed up because I went to Medford both of those days. Yay.

The reason I went to Medford on Thursday was to give him his scriptures only...or something like that. When I got to his house, he had arranged this beautiful bouquet of flowers with my favorite color and flower in them. What a sweetie. We went out to dinner in Ashland to Martino's (Italian place). It was delicious. Back at his house I gave him this bag I had put together for him to help him relax: bag of Reese's Peanut Butter cups, fishing magazine, "Go Fish" card game (he loves to fish haha), a few cd's of Take 6, dvd of Secret Window, 2 liter Mountain Dew, picture frame with a pic of he and I. I think that's all - hope he enjoyed it. It was fun to put together and I hope it actually helps him relax as he is trying to move. We then watched So You Think You Can Dance ( we both enjoy the show) and then started to watch Secret Window but decided instead to take a walk in Bear Creek Park. All in all it was a great night. I left pretty late though (hehe) but it's all worth it. :)

Saturday brought a walk through Bear Creek Park so I could actually see it during the day - beautiful huge park. We then headed over to his parent's house to meet up with some of his sibs and their families. We stayed over there for a few hours and ate dinner. What a great family! Funny story though: Nic and I were outside watching some of his nephews jumping on the trampoline and then one of his nieces came outside. This is what she asked him: Uncle Nic, is this your new wife? haha Kids say the darnedest things! I think Nic was a bit embarrassed but I just laughed about it. Nic of course said no and then she asked him if I was his friend. Yes she is. Is she your special friend? Your girlfriend? Yes she's my girlfriend. It was really funny - a story that won't be forgotten. We left his parent's house and went up to a house he was watching to watch the sunset and watch a movie. Another amazing night and I didn't leave too late. haha

Monday he headed this way to KTown and hung out with my family (rents, Ben and Sharon and their kids). We hung out, ate a delicious dinner, hot tubbing, and movie time. I love the fact that he gets along well with my family and they all get along great with him. :) Everyday spent with him is always wonderful and every second counts.

The new bedding - way cute in person
The bouquet Nic got me - more lilies have opened and still more to come
I heard the reason he was frowning was because I wasn't sitting next to him
Sitting at Bear Creek Park
Walking around the park
The "sunset"
I am a lucky girl :D

I wanted to give you all an update of my new status...I am dating someone right now (look to the right). His name is Nic Phair. What an amazing guy. I met him at the YSA conference in Medford and I guess that's when it all started. We started talking...a lot. hehe I guess this past weekend was a nudge forward in the white direction (haha name that movie...). Seriously though, it was a nudge forward. He lives in Medford - it stinks that he doesn't live in KTown, but doable. Medford is a little over an hour away, so not too bad. I am actually headed there on Thursday, so you can imagine I'm excited about that. Yay. He owns his own insurance agency, so that keeps him busy. He is really a great guy though. I am happy and that's all that matters...

party like a rockstar

This past Saturday I threw a surprise birthday party for one of my friends (known her since we were little). Chelsea turned 21 on Mother's Day and got her mission call to Barcelona, Spain. Congrats Chelsea! People from the branch headed here to party like rockstars (hence the title of the post). Music, food, and fun. I would have to say that Mormons do know how to have fun without alcohol and that waste of money junk. I had so much fun and hopefully so did everyone that came. The downstairs was decorated all cute - thanks to Neeko for helping and mom and Kelda for critiquing. All in all it was a great weekend! :) If you want more deets, give me a call...
