Just Great!

SO today is Sunday. Yes. Sunday.
Just so you know Pike and I are lying on our bed watching Extreme Home Makeover, which I find myself getting more and more jealous by the episode... I want to go on a vacation like the families but mostly I want one of THE HOMES they build. Not so much the kid rooms(I find them to be a little over the top... The kids grow up eventually and may not want that adorable princess room or science lab!) I just love the beautiful home from the exterior to the interior. They always seem to have that amazing yard that you can picture your children playing all day outside, having friends and family over for BBQs or just relaxing outside with a good book on a Sunday. The large openness of the front rooms and Kitchens is what I picture as an "Ideal" home. These large open rooms allow lots of light in and give a sense of peace and serenity. (Maybe I marvel these homes for the reason that for the last 5 years of my life I have been living in rather small spaces!) I have also been sick this weekend and today has been the worst...so I came home from church and tried to sleep it off, of course I couldnt sleep so I tuned into HGTV, only to make myself want a home even more! Today, they were shopping for homes on the east coast, and boy am I glad not to be living there. The homes were old and not the big open spaces that I would want. Then I started thinking to myself, I want to decorate and have nice things... but I can wait, after all, I am living in paradise!
Anyways, along with my lame day of not feeling well...I got on the internet to do my dailies, which entails of checking my blog, blogstalking, check emails, news, whiskeymilitia, facebook, cooking recipe sights,slickdeals, urban, swell, taget(who just opened 2 stores on the island!!), practically anything i can think of looking at and make wish list of all the things I want... and of course the infamous craiglist! Anyone who knows me knows that I can find great websites that offer great deals on fake designer what nots, and today I stumbled upon this great sight...http://www.dezignerfashions.com/index.html... If I had some extra cash I would get myself into trouble here, well maybe not trouble, but I definitely would find a few pretty, new and exciting wants that I would buy in a heartbeat. SO if any of you have a few bucks to spare and dont want to pay the high fashion prices for these nock-offs eat your hearts out! AND just know as you click on the add to your cart button and proceed with your information, I envy you and your purchase! But to get back at you I say this... "I live in Hawaii, have a great tan, and can go to the beach and play in the warm sunshine all day if i wanted!" :)

After sitting for a long while today, I ask myself WHY? Why do you continuously torture yourself day after day. I am addicted to wanting! As I search through websites wishing I had, wishing I could, wishing, wishing, wishing!!! WHY WHY WHY! I am going to have an intervention on myself starting today... I am going to stop wishing and dreaming about lifes what ifs, I am going to start loving what I have! After all I have a lot more then i need! I have health, beauty, skills and talents, an amazing loving husband, along with an awesome loving close family and friends, have a college degree, live in Hawaii(a dream vacation destination), transportation, temple marriage, the gospel, and the list goes on and on. I couldn't be in a happier position, many people would be lucky to have half of what I do!

So to end this endless rampage of babbling I want to thank everyone who has been in my life and made it better! You all deserve a great big hug and kiss from me, you are angels and have made a difference in my life! Thank you for your encouragement, love, compassion, positivity, laughs, comfort, and memories! I love you all!

Please note that I am very sick and this post was merely to kill time before I take my Nyquil and sleep peacefully.

I love you and you are so right! I need to stop the whole "wanting" thing too!! It's just funny how we always want what we don't have, but when we get what we want we want something else! (hope you could follow that) Anyway I love you!

Such a funny post. Most of the blogs that I read are like mine where we talk only about our children and how they learned a new trick or a new word...so yours was very refreshing. It's okay to want and to dream, as long as you are still content with what you have...I think it is clear from what you wrote that you are. I am jealous that you live in hawaii. What a cool experience...live it up and eat a few yummy snocones for me at sunset beach. ang

Sweet, I'm excited to check out the deals on the website. I am the same way, I always wish for things instead of being grateful for what I have. So along with you I am going to try and be more grateful for everything I have, which is more then enough, and not wish for everything else. Plus you know something weird about wishing for things, for me it's always the material things, like a bigger TV, or a new couch, or other things. But the interesting thing is those things don't even matter. They get us no where. That's what I have been thinking about lately, things that actually matter, like really reading and studying the scriptures, food storage, etc. ANyway sorry this was a really long comment. Thanks for your post! Miss ya!

Well, for the "fun" text It is just a courier font, and when you go and compose your post, put it in the text instead of the compose. Or it could be vice versa. I've just discovered it, and it is pretty fun! Play around with it. It gets exciting! haha
