I'm not sure how many of you ever followed this series when it was on TV, but I loved it! My first experiece with Monk was shortly after my mom had foot surgery when I was in high school. Since she couldn't get out of bed, and I was on Christmas break we watched a lot of television! My mom couldn't be left alone, because she was on heavy medication and kept ordering things off of infomercials. I even had to hide her credit card! But that's a whole different story...

Anyway, in an attempt to avoid the spur of the moment spending we watched a lot of random TV shows! On New Years day there happened to be a Monk marathon on, and we all became addicted. :) After that, I made it a point to watch this show every Friday night at 10:00. It kind of became a tradition, and I was so sad when the final season ended. :(

So...I would like to announce that I am now the proud owner of all eight seasons of this fantastic TV series! YAY!

I know what you're thinking right now, and you don't need to worry... As tempting as it is, I am refusing to watch them all at once. I've set a limit of one each week, and so far I've almost stuck to that! :D

Busy As A Bee....

This week has been a very busy one for me. I have had three tests, seven assignments due, an RA interview, work, plus going to my classes and volunteering at the local elementary school. I'm pretty sure I need to take a couple of hours for myself tonight. That's exactly what I intend to do!

One year ago today was when Russell asked me to marry him. Most of you probably did not follow my blog last year at this time, so here is how he did it....

We went to dinner, then to a movie. After the movie was over I got up and put my coat on, but Russell just stayed sitting there. So I asked him if he was ready to go and he just kind of looked at me and said, "Don't you like to stay and see what's after the credits?" I told him that there most likely wasn't anything, but I stood there waiting anyways. I just thought he was being weird......but I waited. So then the credits ended and I was like "Are you ready now?"

And then music started and I looked up and saw a special video made just for me playing on the big screen. :) It had tons of pictures of all the crazy things we've done together and little messages that went along with them. When the movie ended Russell said some really sweet things to me and got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. :)

Wasn't that a good idea?! Anyway, I'm pretty sure we're going to go to a movie tonight and I'm super excited! :)

What Are YOU Willing To Do!

This week has been a pretty crazy one for me. I may or may not have printed the thing I posted last week and hit my head a few times. I think it helped a little, I don't really remember...

On Tuesday I set up a table on Snow College's campus. I've been setting my tables up inside instead of outside by the belltower because it's been so cold lately. My table was pretty much amazing, I'm not going to lie! Not only did I have information to share with students, I also had t-shirts, beanies, ear warmers, foam fingers, magnets, stress balls, pencils, pens, and chapstick.

Oh yeah, and Hula-Hoops! :)

I really regret not taking my camera, because we had quite the crowd! Instead of just giving stuff away, I had people COMPETING against each other to win it! I realize that not everyone has mad hula-hooping skills, so for them we did the "stand on one leg with your eyes closed, one hand on your head, and the other hand on your nose" thing. It's very entertaining for me either way! :)

The winners got to pick anything they wanted from the table, and a lot of them got really excited about that.

I highly recommend that everyone own a couple of a hula-hoops. :) It was a whole lot of fun!
