Happy Birthday To ME!!!

My birthday turned out to be a blast!

My mom woke me up at like 7:00 to a brand new Coach purse and money! GREAT presents :)
We then went to McDonalds for breakfast.  After that we went to work in the Food & Clothing Room (I know, not what you'd think of as fun on your birthday but I love to help out down there) until noon.  She took me out to Eduardo's for lunch, then we took my puppies to see my grandma--she loved them, it was soooo cute. lol.  I then took a quick nap before getting ready for my birthday dinner.  

Several of my good friends from the Chickasha area met me at A&E where we did my birthday up right. lol.  I ADORE them :).  
I have yet to have my Stillwater party with Kelly, but it'll come soon. lol.  
I had a blast with my friends--we laughed the night away, well at least they laughed at me all night. lol

Today, I went up to see Naner and Cassie for my late-birthday.  They took me to the Wedge (which is a really good pizza place) then we went to see Dinner For Schmucks (which was super funny).  

Tuesday, I'll celebrate my birthday with Stormy and my nieces and nephew (the Da's)--we're going to Frontier City!!  It'll be hot, but I always have a blast with them.

I just love my family; they're truly amazing and SOOO much fun. lol

6 days until JAMAICA!! I can't wait!
I bought my beach book the other day--"Sweet Little Lies" by Lauren Conrad.  I just love her.  
So, this time next week, I'll be laying on the beach reading my new book! So relaxing :)

Btw, my new car fever is now even worse--Cassie just bought a nearly-new car and I LOVE it. lol.  I'm kinda green with envy...
Speaking of, my poll is now tied, so some more people need to vote and even it out! lol

One more day of summer school then one final and I'm DONE! 
One more semester closer to graduating! FINALLY! ha ha

Until next time,

Finally 21!!!

It's my birthday and I'll cry if I want to!

Well, hopefully the only tears I'll be shedding today are from laughing too hard.

Have a very happy Lana's birthday, everyone!

It was brought to my attention tonight by one of my dedicated readers (Cameron) that he is the ONLY one who has voted on my car poll.

So...GO VOTE!!!

I will have a detailed post of my life soon--probably a post-21st birthday post.  
Be anticipating it!

Puppy Love

My mom has agreed to let me keep this adorable little girl:

So...I need the perfect name for her!

I have been calling her Roxi, but I'm not 100% sold on it yet.  
I thought about naming her Tiffy after Tiffany & Co., but I'm not sure I like it.  
I suppose I could name her Diamond...but that just sound like an African American name gone wrong. ha ha me out! Let me know if you know any good names!  

Until next time,

Big Girl Job=New Car

I have had my Taurus for 5 years now.

I always said it would last me through college, and that I would buy a new one when I got a big-girl job.  
Well, guess what??

I'm graduating in December and (hopefully) will have a big-girl job by January, which's time for a new car!!

So...I've narrowed my wish list down to a H3, Dodge Nitro, Ford Flex, or a Toyota FJ.  I need your help making my final decision!  Hopefully you'll participate more in this poll than you did the last one!

I love the look of all of these vehicles, and I know I want an SUV.  
The only problem with the Nitro is that one of my close friends just bought one so I don't want to be a copycat.  

Go vote! NOW! K? thanks :)

Also, I am DOMINATING my World Thought 3 class--seriously!  I made a 92 on the first test and a 97 on my midterm paper!  So, I think as a reward, I will buy those lovely Coach sunglasses for myself :)

Lessons I've Learned Thus Far in 2010

1.  Never believe the weather forecast (I already knew that but I thought I'd throw it in lol)
2.  Never believe doctor's when they say "this surgery has a 99% success will prove to be the unlucky 1% lol
3.  Never think you can change a guy--if you don't like who he is now, you never will
4.  Motorcyles are fun :)
5.  Loritabs are your friend... but morphine is your very best friend :) *no, I'm not an addict lol.  But I was in a LOT of pain after surgery and very very angry. ha ha
6.  Sometimes you don't get what you want/had planned because God has a different/better plan in store for you.
7.  Every guy says things they don't really mean (I also already knew this, but was reminded of it this year lol)
8.  I HATE working outside. For real.  Give me my air conditioning...I'm a weanie!
9.  I want to move to New York.  Too bad I can't find anyone to move with me....
10.  People get on my nerves.  I used to think I was a people person but I'm not anymore...I like to be left alone. lol.

14 days until my birthday!!!

23 days until I'm on the beaches of Jamaica!!

5 months until gradaution!!

I can't decide which one I'm more excited  It's a very close tie. 

But I'm finally starting to feel like I can make it! ha ha.  I fell like the Little Engine That Could! ha ha. "I think I can, I think I can..."

I'm a little scared about graduation because I don't really know what I'll do--I'll be 21 and considered to be a 'grown-up,' with no plan. lol

I'd like to get a job with Make-A-Wish or something like that, but I have to start at the bottom so we'll see :)

Right now my survey is tied so go vote! I know there's more than two people who read my blog!

End of an Era

I am heartbroken that The Hills is no more

hurts my heart more than my break up did 

I need to go buy the entire series so I can watch it to my heart's content.  It would be a great birthday present for me *hint hint* ha ha jk

I'm Livin Life Now That I'm Free

Ex-boyfriend number 6 just got engaged...

It's crazy to think that could have been me--don't get me wrong I definitely wouldn't have wanted to wake up to THAT face every morning, it's just the fact of the matter. lol

I feel like I'm starting over, starting fresh
at the single, ripe age of almost 21. 

A new chapter of my life is about to begin...more on that later :)

And thanks to Kelly, I have a new game plan for the game of

I'm A Survivor

As I'm picking up the pieces of my life lately, I begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  

I'm ALWAYS single on my birthday so that's no surprise...but this is my BIG birthday! I turn 21 this month and I get to do it SINGLE! That's super exciting! 

I get to go to Jamaica SINGLE without worrying about someone back home.

I get to finish school in December and get a big girl job without anyone hovering over me trying to make my decisions for me!

Don't get me wrong, it's not the break up that's so bad...I just HATE dating.  So every time I get out of a relationship I dread the whole starting over process.  I just want something to work out for once.  But I am young and tough :)  I will survive!

Ridin Solo

I give up...

on trying to please people
on trying to be someone I'm not
on accepting less than I deserve
on believing there is someone out there for me

27 Bouqets

Well, not quite 27...I'm only on my third wedding bouquet so far.
However, I'm sure with time, I will be up to 27. lol. Too bad the whole "whoever catches the bouquet is the next to get married" thing never works out. lol. On the bright side, at least I'm not always the bridesmaid! ha ha
