Farewell to the Mainland

So I finally gave in and started a blog. I think it's the easiest way to keep everyone updated on what is going on in my oh so adventurous life, hence the name of the blog (thanks Kath!). Anyway I just want to start out by thanking everyone for all of your love and support, it means so much to me! I miss everyone like crazy and it has only been three days!! As I say goodbye to the mainland there are several things that I also say goodbye to:
1) living for free in my parents basement and having access to a constant supply of Red Vines, Good & Plenty's, and Doritos
2) sleeping in until noon, staying in my pajamas all day, and drifting to sleep on the couch to the sweet voice of Conan O'Brien
3) my boyfriend who was always by my side (or feet)...Todd.
4) my other boyfriends- Kim and Emily ;)
5) endless lingering with friends at any public place we ever went to
6) knowing which sports teams were winning, or even worse losing, without ever actually having to see the game
and last but not least
7) my Elmer's-glue-like, glow in the dark skin! (well cross your fingers for that one)

I hope that everyone reading this will take a break from the mainland as well, at least for a week, and come visit me!! ALOHA!

From Mom & Dad: Free Rent - yeah, about that. . . Dad and I are still waiting for your $200/mo rent. You owe over $3,000 at least. (guess you'll just owe it to us). We thought a rat was eating the good & plenty and Doritos! Now we know. Todd has completely taken over your bed!!! We are thrilled for you and hope you love your time in paradise. Get the air mattress ready for us! We expect red vines, coke, lots of frozen food in the freezer along with unlimited ice cream! Aloha!

ALOOOOOOOOHA!!! I couldn't be happier that you are finally posting things on blogger! I also couldn't be happier that the name stuck: I basically feel like I named your first child. So honored... Listen: I couldn't be more sad that I wasn't able to say goodbye! Ashley sabotaged my life and planned your party the one weekend I was gone! I love you like a fat kid loves cake and I will come to visit you. Feel free to come visit me anytime... right here.. in Utah. Crap. You win for coolest life!!!
