Body World

I highly recommend attending this incredible exhibit at the Leonardo/Old Salt Lake Library. Not only is it interesting and informative, but I found it to be VERY educational.
I took Human Biology in college 3 times. The first time I got a C, the second a D, and the third a B. If I would have just seen this exhibit the first time, I would have gotten an A. Although there are boobs and penis' if you have children 5 and above, I think they would also find this very interesting and educational.
My only suggestion for future exhibits would be to add more information about obesity. All of the bodies on display were perfect. There didn't seem to be much room for any imperfections. However, I think more information and displays about obesity could encourage others to live a healthy life style. I have heard many doctors say that it is "never too late" to begin living a health life style with exercise and good diet.
The brain and heart sections were very interesting and I found myself learning new things.

I was tagged....

I was tagged by my neice that can't type.

7 random and/or weird facts about me:

1. I have a cup of coffee once a day. (or one Dr.Pepper)

2. I LOVE halloween. I would rather have Halloween than Christmas.

3. I wash my face twice when I shower.

4. I have 4 jobs and I love them all!

5. I like to eat raw cookie dough.

6. I have never cleaned my car (gross, I know)

7. I cheated on my times tables tests in 3rd grade.... I still don't know them....

I tag Tyson (cause he will do it)

It has been suggested...

It has been suggested that I have two blogs. It has also been suggested that I not post things that are going to offend people. Here is my response.....

Don't read my blog. If you are unable to accept opinions outside your own scope of life, then this is not the blog for you. If you are unable to accept that not all people are like you, and that other people swear and can be crude and offensive, don't read my blog.

My friends and family that truly know and appreciate who I am will read my blog and know when to say something and when not to say something.

If you don't like something that I write on my blog, feel free to say something, but don't expect me to change my own ways or to not express MY own feelings on MY own blog.

This is NOT a family blog. Tyson and I do not have a "family" blog. When our child is old enough to type, he can have his own blog. Tyson and I have two seperate blogs, he has his own and I have my own. On my blog I express my opinions, talk about what is going on in my life, and vent my own frustrations or feelings.

The only person that I invited to view my blog was my husband, Tyson. The only person that will love and appreciate all of me and my opinions, even if we differ on some of them.

If you are truly interested in my life and want to know information about my child then you can do what families do, pick up the phone, ask us over for dinner.

Don't email me or make comments on my blog, thinking that is communication. It's not. It took me a long time to learn that true communication is between two people, face to face. Technology has only hindered, not helped, this process of communication. I have witnessed this several times within my own family, as well as Tyson's. Emailing, texting, or blogging, is NOT a way to communicate with someone. It is pretty much just stating an opinion. If you only want to tell someone how you feel then do one of the ways listed above. However, communication should be a two way street. If you want to have a discussion with someone, do it in person. TALKING to each other is a great way to communicate with someone. And it is possible to have a discussion with someone even if your views differ, as long as there are two open minds involved, then it is possible.

For those of you that will continue to read my blog, thanks and welcome.

To those of you that will choose to not read my blog, have a nice life.

Wow... that felt good... oh wait...


Not that I voted for Obama (because I didn't) but I sure as hell did NOT vote for McCain either!


Holy shit.... wow.... whew....hold on.....


Seriously, if I had balls, I would tell at least 10 specific people to suck them.....

Sometimes I don't want to be right. But this time.... I'm swimming in it!!!

However, he still has 2 months and 4 years to be assassinated, so we'll see how the McCain lovin' red-neck nazi's deal with that!

Either way....


PS - Switzerland or maybe Canada are still possibilities in our future. Only because the democratic ticket isn't much better than the republican. The US has a long way to go before it is back to its original roots and beliefs. Something that they will probably never get back to. And socialized medicine isn't a bad idea if it is played out correctly. And stealing from the rich to give to the poor (redistribution of wealth) is also a bunch of bullshit.

Thanks to Hilary for this wonderful post

Dear Red States

If you manage to steal this election too we've decided we're leaving.
We intend to form our own country, and we're taking the other Blue States with us. That includes California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington,Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and all the Northeast. We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation, and especially to the people of the new country of New California.
To sum up briefly: You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states.We get stem cell research and the best beaches. We get the Statue of Liberty. You get Dollywood. We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom. We get Harvard. You get Ole' Miss. We get 85% of America's venture capital and entrepreneurs. You get Alabama. We get two-thirds of the tax revenue, you get to make the red states pay their fair share.
Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22% lower than the Christian Coalition's, we get a bunch of happy families. You get a bunch of single moms.
Please be aware that Nuevo California will be pro-choice and anti-war, and we're going to want all our citizens back from Iraq at once. If you need people to fight, ask your evangelicals. They have kids they're apparently willing to send to their deaths for no purpose, and they don't care if you don't show pictures of their children's caskets coming home. We do wish you success in Iraq, and hope that the WMDs do turn up, but we're not willing to spend our resources in Bush's Quagmire.
With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm control of 80% of the country's fresh water, more than 90% of the pineapple and lettuce,92% of the nation's fresh fruit, 95% of America's quality wines, 90%of all cheese, 90% of the high tech industry, 95% of the corn and soybeans (thanks Iowa!), most of the U.S. low-sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools plus Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.
With the Red States, on the other hand, you will have to cope with88% of all obese Americans (and their projected health care costs),92% of all U.S. mosquitoes, nearly 100% of the tornadoes, 90% of the hurricanes, 99% of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100% of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia. We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.
38% of those in the Red states believe the earth is only 6,000 years old and Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale; 62% believe life is sacred unless we're discussing the war, the death penalty or gun laws; 44% say that evolution is only a theory; 53% that Saddam was involved in 9/11, and 61% of you crazy bastards believe you are people with higher morals than us lefties.
Finally, we're taking the good pot, too. You can have that dirt weed they grow in Mexico.
Peace out,
--the Blue States

How things are going...

I don't have any pictures but I'll tell you all how things are going. I am currently 25 1/2 weeks along. We have been to the hospital once for dehydration and a GI bug. And now we have a cold.
We have welcomed home Logan from his mish in the DR. And we are soon to endure the Miss Utah USA pageant in November.
I am SOOOO ready for the nursery to be finished, but we haven't even started yet. Anyone that would like to help is more than welcome to come over on Sunday. We need to clean out the "office" and pretty much rearrange our entire house.... :)

Tyson and I are very excited to have a baby boy. Tyson talks to my stomach and still calls the baby Jesus. We have chosen his name to be Atlas Thomas Whitehead.

It's A Boy!!!!

Hi Friends-

Tyson and I have found out that our little pea is a BOY!!!

Here is the latest bump picture. As soon as I figure out how to put a video on here, then I'll upload the ultrasound.

I'm sorry, I couldn't help myself (see blog below)
What an honest man.... Oh wait...
Who knows where he REALLY stands?
McCain vs. McCain. We don't have to dig up his past, let's look at his present.
Supports the War? Jokes about the war.

I'm not saying that Obama is a better candidate than John McCain. All I'm saying is that we need to be more aware of who we are voting for. Disregard religion, politics, and war. It's important to look at the integrity of a person that will be running an entire country. Honestly, I don't care who wins. Tyson and I are fully prepared to move out of the country as soon as possible. America, is not the greatest country. We are just as corrupt and dishonest as the countries that we are "fighting" against.

I do think that this may be THE time to start voting 3rd party. As I have said previously, there are more than 2 parties in the country. Look at the other candidates. They are just as important. The point of voting is NOT to vote for the person that is going to win. The point is to use your vote wisely. Vote for the person that you feel has integrity.
When it comes down to it, the public vote does NOT matter. All that matters is what the electoral college says. Majority rules.

Sorry kids.

Vote for Mickey Mouse.

Saturday, September 6, 2008

Inspired by my sister in law....


This is dedicated to all that want to spout political bullshit when they know absolutely nothing about it. Not to say by any means that I know what I'm talking about, because I don't. For President, I am voting for Mickey Mouse. Not only does he have more experience but he's never been involved in an scandals or ethics violations. And he has been with the same woman for over 50 years and never spouts his religious views on anyone else.

Just because Senator John McCain has added a vagina to the ticket -
Sarah Palin is pretty much against every women's rights issue - EVER.

Pro-Choice - If a women get's pregnant - it is ABSOLUTELY her choice to decide what she wants to do with her body. After being pregnant - I MORE AGREE WITH THIS NOW THAN EVER!!!!! If I want to kill my baby tomorrow and my body is in danger - damn fuckin' straight I'll do it. And don't EVEN question me on that. As of right now, baby does NOT have a right to live. I do. Sure that makes me a selfish bitch and God is going to strike me down, oh well. Trust me if God hasn't struck me down already, there isn't much else I can do to piss him off.

Let's talk about education and research - OH PLEASE!!
Do you even know who all the political candidate's for president are?? Guess what?! They aren't just O'Bama and McCain. DO YOUR RESEARCH JACKASS! Although there are two main political parties in the United States, they are NOT the only ones, nor have they been the only ones since the inception of the United States.

K - that's all.

The pregnancy...

First of all... let's talk about the rules of my blog..
If you are easily offended - DON'T READ IT
If you don't want to know about my personal life - DON'T READ IT
If you don't like too much information - DON'T READ IT

Okay - with that said.....

Here is what I have learned about since I have been pregnant....

Constant nausea is terrible. I would rather be in constant pain then be sick all day everyday. I'm not throwing up but I want to. I can gag at the thought of any kind of food or anything like that.

Constipation sucks... it's a pretty common thing with pregnancy (so I hear) and it really sucks.

I have now learned what sciatic nerve is. It hurts during pregnancy because apparently my pelvis is getting bigger to accomodate for the baby.... This nerve hurts mostly when I am walking or standing.

There is another nerve in the front of my pelvis near my ovary that also hurts. Walking helps the sciatic nerve to not hurt anymore but makes this other nerve hurt worse. Great...

Last but not least (and don't tell anyone) sex is awesome when you're pregnant!!!! HAHAHAHHAHHAHAHAHHA

Most of what you see in the pictures above is gas, i'm not really that big yet...


Here is Tyson and his whiteness at the beautiful beach!!!
We were in the airport and I was VERY happy to see a Chik-Fil-A.
Here is Kate. She was very happy to see us at Miss Teen USA.
Britt and Me and Finals night for Miss Teen USA. (I put makeup on)
Our toes.... (me and tyson)
Tyson looks weird in this picture...

Coffee Snob

I never thought this would happen to me...

I have turned into a coffee bitch. It's true. I have truly turned into that picky girl in front of you at the coffee shop that has a long list of how her coffee needs to be made. Dammit.

I began my coffee experience when I was around 16 years old. My friend in high school, Britney, took me to a coffee shop and ordered me a mocha cappuccino. It took a little bit of getting used to, but after my third time trying it, I was hooked. I then began to frequent coffee shops in the downtown area and I would order a tall mocha cappuccino, every time. I became a regular and whenever I would go to a certain shop, they would pretty much already have my drink made by the time I got to the front of the line to pay.

I went to one coffee shop and was talking to the barista, and I told him that I had never tried anything besides my mocha cappuccino. He said, "Well let me make you something" I agreed with the stipulation that it be sweet and doesn't taste like coffee. And he made me a Vanilla Latte. I fell in love with it, and then began getting vanilla latte's from there.

In the summer of 2003, I was on vacation on was unable to drink Vanilla Latte's. I was taught by a roommate how to drink "regular coffee". I filled it with extra sugar and creamer. I spent two weeks drinking "regular" coffee. With no latte's.

Since then I have tried several coffee drinks and I always go back to my vanilla latte's. And I have realized exactly how I like my vanilla latte. This morning I found myself saying these words to drive up Starbucks:

"Grande 6 pump vanilla latte with skim milk and no foam"

No pillows

I've decided that sleeping in the front seat of my car is better than sleeping anywhere else. I love it. I feel more comfortable, safe and I can just listen to my music and chill. I enjoy it. And it's nice when I have been working in the morning and I have two hours before I have to be in class. Instead of going to the library and doing my homework (who the hell does that anyway), I just sleep in my car and have a nice nap. I wake up feeling refreshed, with a red face and fuzzy hair.
I also think it's funny because I can only imagine what people are thinking as they walk by. Or the other cars that think I am pulling out and I'm not. They probably get pretty pissed off.
I pretty much sleep in my car at least twice a week. So if you're ever in the parking lot at Westminster College, look for me in my brown Camry.

However- let me still say that sleeping in my bed with my husband will beat sleeping in my car any day!!

Why I hate myspace:

-Spam mostly. I don't want to be your friend. Unless you know me and I feel comfortable to swear around you!! hahahahaha.

-I can't post pics very well on there without wasting a crap load of my time making them smaller.

-All the different pages. I like some personalization, but mostly uniformity!! Seriously - I hate the pages that I can't read and take FOREVER to start up. LAME

-The advertisements on myspace are especially lame. Seriously, I have a degree already, no I don't want to find out if I'm fat, I don't care what is on tv tonight, and I definitely don't care who the rapper/tv star/celebutant is behind the glasses.

- It seems like myspace has gotten 10x slower than it used to be before the "change over".

- AND it seems like there is at least 1-5 links that NEVER work or take 5 times of going back and forth to actually get to the site...

Although I do hate all of these things about myspace, I do still check it everyday. However, I am considering giving up on myspace and switching over completely to Facebook!!! hahahahaha
No really...
