Black Friday

A bit of background info for you:
I made a list of items that within the next year or so I need to purchase. First, a new camera, then netflix, then a laptop, and so on and so forth.
 Camera. Check.
Netflix. Check.
So I have been saving/waiting until the right time for my next big purchase.

     I decided Black Friday was going to be a perfect time to look for a laptop. So that's what I did, and I found one that was going to be at Walmart for $189. Perfect. At about 7:30 I headed down there with my little sister. They gave us a ticket that guaranteed us a laptop even though we wouldn't recieve it until midnight. We had to wait in a designated line until then. There was about 10-15 people in front of us and our line was down a paint aisle (such a boring aisle to be stuck on). To make matters even more boring my phone died 1/3 of the way through the night eliminating facebook, twitter, and games.

     At 10:00 Walmart opened a whole bunch of their stuff and seriously I can't even describe the sounds that I heard once that time came. We were near the back of the store and we couldn't really see the craziness at first, but we heard it. It was a like a wave of screams, yelling, running, psychotic moms, and just pure maddness. Our paint aisle was our own little safety zone and we watched as people ran around grabbing whatever they could and throwing it in their cart. We saw some lady who was crying and holding ice packs on her knees and heard talk of someone being tazed...the things people will do for the littlest things.
Meanwhile my sister was in line at Toys 'R Us and some lady cut in line behind her saying "butting in line is not a crime". My sister responded with "no, but it could get you beat up on a night like this". The lady then looked at her and said "Well I have a gun and I will use it"....ummm psycho much? The cops definitely kicked her out of line completely.

    Finally after waiting for  4 1/2 hours it was time. I got my laptop with no trouble at all, and waited in the long line to check out. Best thing ever. Laptop...check. I love it. was also having some sales for Black Friday and I got two seasons of the Vampire Diaries on DVD for a total of $15.98. Too great. I also ventured to Target with my sisters and that was awful. The line wrapped around the whole store. I am so happy my shopping was already done.

I definitely scored big this Black Friday and I am pretty well pleased with myself. 

Bored out of our minds

Our cousin Morgan came to keep us company

Finally! So happy.

36 Hours

Tis the season to be jolly.
and jolly I am.
I love Thanksgiving...the food is amazing but also I absolutely love being with my family. Seriously they are the best/craziest people ever. It's always a blast.
I have lots to be thankful for, but if I start listing everything I won't be able to stop, so just know that there would be pages full.
I said goodbye to one of my dear patients this past week. She passed away peacefully of old age. In my opinion there is no better way to go. She was a sweetheart. Coincedentally, it just so happened that she was my brother-in-law's grandma. I am so grateful that I got to spend some of her last days with her and take care of her. She will be missed.

I will now spend the next 36 hours dreaming of the delicious candied yams I will be partaking of Thursday afternoon.

The Loser Scale

As of late, I am unhappy with the sure boringness my life has come to.
Seriously, its bad.
On a loser scale from 1-10 (ten being the biggest loser) I am border lining a ten.
My routine is far too predictable, and I am tired of it.
I watch way too much Vampire Diaires and pretend my life is as exciting as Elena Gilbert's (the main girl).
I am in dire need of an adventure.
I day dream of going to Africa and helping the little kids and people there...except that takes thousands of dollars that I dont happen to have just lying around. I need to think of some genius fundraisers. If you have any ideas, please share.

Also, listen to this song. It is my favorite at the moment and while Bon Iver sings it amazingly, Birdy's version just seems to tickle my fancy. I don't think I will ever get sick of it. That's how brilliant it is.

An Addict I am

Hello my name is Cierra and I am a Series-aholic.
It's a serious disorder I have.
With books and television shows.
I think an intervention is needed....but if you try to stop me I might have to kill you.
Know that I mean that in the nicest way possible.

The minute I find a book or a t.v. series that I like, I am hooked. I eat, sleep, and breathe it.
Twilight, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, 24, The O.C., Gossip Girl, and now my latest addiction...The Vampire Diaries. Seriously I am in love. I want a super hot, bad A vampire boyfriend. (so realisitc I know) Lately all I want to do when I am not busy is watch this dang show. I just finished season 1 and I started season 2. It's getting the best of me, but I just can't stop watching it.

Seriously look at those three...what's not to love.
At first I thought it might be dumb, but then I got into it and there is nothing dumb about it.
Sure it's kind of like Twilight, but what's wrong with that?
I'm in love, and I recomend watching it (if you already don't)
...but a fair warning to all, it's addicting.

Birthday Lovin'

Like I mentioned below, there were two special birthdays this week.

First off, my puppy Kaiya turned two.
Look how stinkin' cute she was as a puppy. Sad to say, she's a bit more grown up now, but I love her dearly....It's seriously an obsession. Laugh all you want.

Next, it was my best friend in the entire world's birthday.
Stephanie Anne Stewart.

She really is the best and I am so lucky to have her. We have been best friends since I think 5th grade. We have seriously never been in a fight. We get along so well and even when I am with her everyday, I just don't get sick of her. (is this lesbian enough sounding yet? oh well. I don't even care) We just have fun. No matter what it is, even if it's just sitting and watching tv, it's still fun. She is such a good example, and is always doing what's right. She is my other half and is more like a sister than a friend. No matter what she is always there and I can count on her. I love you Stephy!

For her birthday, we had pazookis at her house with all of our friends. I got her Gossip Girl Season 4 for her birthday because she is obsessed and it is slightly out of control. So I fed the addiction instead of fighting it and got it for her. Once she starts watching it, don't plan on seeing her for a few days.
Tonight we went to Happy Sumo, Red Mango, and to Shayli's house to watch Crazy, Stupid, Love with all of our best friends. It was such a solid night especially because Paloma's boyfriend London and his dad happened to be at Happy Sumo at the same time we were. They came and talked to us for a minute before sitting down for their dinner. When we were about finished eating our waitress came to our table and told us that Scott (London's dad) had paid for our whole check and that we didn't need to worry about it. We were in shock, seriously. We all went and bought him treats at kneaders after that. Nicest thing ever. Marry London Paloma...just do it. I am sold on him and his family.
