Childhood story #2

I remember this day PERFECTLY.

My dad had just been called into the high council and so he was going to be set apart right after stake conference that sunday.
My mom wanted to have it be a really nice day, so we got up early and had all the kids ready: our hair perfect, shoes tied, bows in hair, breakfast down...all that good stuff.

We got in the car perfectly early/on time and we started to back out.

We had an Expedition at the time that fit to the limits on our garage.
Somehow, the emergency pull cord that drops the garage door got caught in the car door and had slipped down a couple inches.

As we pulled out we heard a loud *sssscccrrraaapppee* on the top of the car.
Startling us all my mom said, "well what the crap was that?"and opened the car door to get out.

Not realizing it, she had not put the car in park and got out while it was still in reverse.
The car kept backing out as the car door was caught on the big shelves.

That did it, and hyperextended the door all the way back.
The mother jumped in the car while it was moving and let out a big "SH*&!".
I had never hear my mom swear.

I BURST into tears, which burst the other kids into tears. We got to church and my dad walked in to see me on the row BAWLING.

"What's wrong with Chels?"

Without missing a beat I replied in a "too loud for church sobbing voice":


You can tell I was quite the perfectionistic anxiety-ridden child.

And that was the first time I heard my mom swear.
I'll never forget it.

Funnies from the past....

Ash gave me this really GREAT idea to take you back to the funny little past. So for the next few days I will be giving you some great stories that we still think are hilarious. Here is number one:

When I was little I could NEVER figure out who in the heck was saying the sacrament prayer.
They weren't standing at the pulpit,
they weren't holding a mic,
but all of the sudden SOMEONE would be saying the prayer.
So I leaned over to my mom and asked, "mom, who is saying the prayer? Is that Nephi?" She answered hurriedly before the prayer started,"you could say that. He kind of is."
Well, that did it. My little head wrapped around that it WAS Nephi saying the prayer

So for YEARS, I believed Nephi was literally the one coming down and saying the sacrament prayer.
Unfortunately, I found out later it was just the boys from the ward.

Hmph, I liked my idea more.

I did it once and thought I would never do it again....

but here I am!

Getting ready for another round of this:

That's right, another pageant.

I know what you are thinking...

- Ewww, pageants are stupid and for stupid girls.
- Oh my gosh, I would NEVER do that...
- There is so much stigma! Why would you put yourself through that?
- Oh my gosh, you are such a pageant girl (ashley gibson)!

But amazingly, I kind of liked the last one I did.
Here are the GOOD points of being in a pageant:

- You have a reason to get skinny (walking in a swimsuit in front of a crowd is always a good motivator)
- You learn SO many good interview skills
- You are working to get yourself to become your best self
- You gain more self-confidence
- You get all dressed up
- You work on your talent
- You learn how to public speak
- You learn how to walk in heels

and the biggest reason I am doing it:
You get to talk about your platform... a lot!

Mine is CREATING LIFETIME HUMANITARIANS: Youth Service Involvement

So I am trying really hard to win here so I can work towards Miss Utah. It would give me such a voice to talk to hundreds of that is the goal. We will see how it goes! Wish me luck. I am not looking forward to the swim suit. But I am dropping weight a lot! So good news right?

I am also not looking forward to all the snitchy stuff either....I will keep the funny pageant stories coming....that's a promise.

Lady Ga Ga cramps my style.

Did you watch the VMAs tonight? If you did, then you have seen MANY interesting things. Does anyone else think Lady Ga Ga looks like a bunny?
Also, can someone else please explain the blood.....? Weird.

What was WEIRDER was the girl in the wheel chair. She was dancing with her legs. It was so random.I hate to break it to her, but if she was really in a wheel chair she probably most likely would nat be able to move her legs...I'm just sayin.
I wish I had a picture of her in her weird red twine outfit. It was just...well...weird.
I duno, it just all cramped me.

I also am a big fan of Kanye West, but maybe not so much after he grabbed the mic out of Tayor Swift's hands and said that Beyonce should have won best video.

Gosh I sound like the tabloids, but I have been cramped. And cramped big time.

What did you think?? Leave a comment and let me know.

H1N1 Pick-up lines

So I am laying here with Swine Flu and Bronchitis and I feel really crappy. Really, really crappy. And well, I can't believe how unlucky I can be sometimes. It came so quickly. Anyway, I decided I would compile a list of H1N1 pick-up lines/how to get a man since everyone is so wigged out about it, Ray gave me the idea so here they go:

1. I think I have a fever! Can you put your face to mine to see if I am warm?

2. I have the chills. We should nestle.

3. I'm quarantined, want to be quarantined with me?

4. I have body aches...will you rub me down?

Those are it...I am sure they would work if you tried. If you need some lovin' and are lonely, I would be more than happy to cough on your face so you could use them.

Hopefully I will survive these next 5 days of being summoned to my apartment. And who knows, maybe I could get some lovin'.

Going the distance.

This weekend Cami Jensen's (one of my bestest best friends and roommate) boyfriend came down this weekend.
I found this as a perfect opportunity to meet a man.
So I ask him, "Zane! Don't you have a good guy that you want to set me up with?!"
Now, he is not the one to make sarcastic comments and has to be one of the nicest guys I know.
He, with his very most serious face says,
"Ok, ok, I can do that. So, how far are you willing to go?"
Well, he MEANT distance (since he lives in Logan)...however, that is NOT the first thing I thought of.

In fact, 3 things passed through my mind almost instantaneously.
#1. Is he serious?!
#2. (remember, he doesn't really make sarcastic comments) Wow! That was really quick, and REALLY funny
#3 He has no idea what he just said.

Me and Cam burst into laughter.
I immediately replied, "I'm definitely a second baser. I for sure go for second base."

Let me just say, he went really red, really quick.

It was classic.
