Everything is Rosie

To catch you all up, I decided to post 26 things that have happened in the last few months or just general happy news in honor of the big 26th birthday!
  1. Well, the first one must be that I have made it to the age of 26 and looking back I'm thinking things have gone pretty well so far!
  2. I can now make Peter Pan fly... I am teaching myself how to use Flash so I can get more into the web side of design.
  3. I have applied for a passport... possibilities are endless.
  4. I visited three new places! Which means they get to each be there own bullet... so this one is for ST. AUGUSTINE where we visited the Fountain of Youth... but THAT is another story.
  5. OREGON... where I thought of my good friend Rosie and got to spend time with the Nelson clan! We golfed (I need a golf viser), white water rafted, talent showed and enjoyed the beauty that is Oregon.

  6. and CHICAGO... where I ate deep dish pizza and walked till I dropped!
  7. I also went to Atlanta with my parents (not new, but still fantastic) where I saw the soon to be married Hillary Swanson, toured CNN and sprained my ankle right before watching the cool yet somewhat odd lazer show at Stone Mountain.
  8. I am an aunt to the most adorable 14 month old there ever was!
  9. My sister and her husband and the above perfect niece moved to Tennessee, putting them within a 9-hour car drive of me instead of 27!
  10. I learned to re-create the peanut butter bars that they used to sell in Junior High... do you remember???
  11. David Cook sang to me at American Idols Live on Tour 2008 - for those of you who want sneak peak...

  12. I wore a sombrero.

  13. I am studying to take the GRE and remembering how terrible I am at taking tests.
  14. I am considering the following life changes... moving to California and staying with Disney, going to grad school in Arizona or perhaps Salt Lake and most recently throwing it all away and pursuing a career in tennis.
  15. I played a wicked game of tennis in the hot Florida sun.
  16. I went to the dentist to get a fairly obscene amount of work done... in one visit while I was home in Utah.
  17. I bought postcards in Oregon for a few peeps and ACTUALLY mailed them. A few of you know how significant that truly is.
  18. I went to the brand new Whole Foods that they opened in Orlando... WAHOO!
  19. I created floral arrangements for a wedding.
  20. I went to see my fourth Cirque du Soleil show - Kooza - amazing!

  21. We brought back the always hilarious shakey face pictures! Starting a new tradition of taking one on all vacations. A few samples for those of you who haven't experienced shakey face. It is an art form.
  22. I sang in church.
  23. I officially fell off the caffeine wagon and enjoyed a bit of Dr. Pepper during my vacations... Nectar of the Gods its been called, and I won't argue.
  24. I registered to vote.
  25. I realized once again that the best things in my life for the last 26 years is ALL OF YOU!
  26. And last but not least... I finally updated my blog.
