The Speechly Christmas party was so fun this year. It was held at our church and we ate and talked and had a little singing of course from my Uncle Richard and his daughter Shannon. It is so good to get together with the extended family to see how everyone is doing. Thank you to evertone who came, it wouldn't have been the same without you! I love all you guys!

Yes it is true, my friend Marissa and I are throwing an Ugly Sweater Party!It just seems like everyone is doing one these days, so we've decided to jump on board! So we ventured out on a snowy Saturday night, in search of the perfect sweater at the D.I. But we didn't have the best of luck, so we purchased the Ugliest sweater we could possibly find, (not so ugly). And then headed off the Michaels for some embellishments. We got all the bells and whistles to make our sweaters the nastiest. With some luck we found some bells, but no whistles, and some feathers, bows and fringe! So we worked ever so hard sewing on each feather and each bell, and must say, that I think we have produced two of the ugliest sweaters. And am proud to say that people have offered to vomit on them. Mission Accomplished!

For all of you who know Steph, you most likely know that she is my sister, well she isn't only my sister, we she is also one of my best friends. I really don't know where I would be in this world if it wasn't for her love and consideration for me. She has helped me through so much in my life, and at one point was willing to give part of herself to me, so that I could continue my life here on earth. Alright, now that the tears have started, shoot. Well to make a long story short, in the Spring of 2004, I was diagnosed with Kidney Failure, and was put on Dialysis, in hopes that my Kidney would regain strenght and start working again. Well as time passed, things started to digress, and my health was suffering. So we talked to the doctors and thought that the best option was to go through with an organ transplant with a family member. My whole family was tested but only one person was a PERFECT match, and that was my beautiful sister Stephanie. She went through all the testing, but she found out that she was pregnant, and wouldn't be able to donate. This was really hard for me, but in the end I recieved two great presents, I got a handsome little nephew whome I adore and miss so so much, and in time I also recieved a brand new Kidney, it wasn't a live donor of course, it was a cadaver. But in the end, I just wanted to let everyone know how lukcy I am to have such a willing sister, that would donate one of her organs to save my life. And I know i can't leave out Haley, Nate, Mom and Dad, my extended family, and even some people I hardly knew even wanted to donate to me, and I am so very thankful for that. But it was Steph, who was the right one for the job, and I hope that one day if it so happens that I need another transplant, that my sister will be there for me like she was in 2004. Even if it isn't to donate, but just for the love a support that i got from her the last time around.
Steph, you are my Hero, and I love you more than you even know, I am so privelaged to have you as my sister and best friend, I will love you for all Eternity, you are my rock and foundation, and make me want to strive to be a better person, and for that I truely admire you. I hope you had a fantastic birthday, and I wish I could have shared it with you. I love you so much.
Happy Happy Birthday Stephy Dear Happy Days Will Come To You All Year, If I Had A Wish Then It Would Be A Happy Happy Birthday To You From Me!

So as I am sitting on the couch today, i recieve and intersting text from my brother-in-law Dan, and this is how the conversation goes, word for word. *caution* I am a little ridiculous when it comes to texting, whether the text is long or just plain nonscence.
Dan-" It's ROB READ's B-Day today! Be sure to wishing him one! ( just one though...don't over do it).
-response " haha you know me, i'm gonna say it 50 times and tell them they are all from you :)"
Dan-"Hah! I dare you! You don't have it in you!
-"Oh just watch me Daniel, i'll go over there right after work with a sign that states'happy Birthday little brother of mine, your my pride and joy, so here's a toy' I will write it 50 times and leave him with a ninja turtle or something cool like that. And it will be signed Daniel Read. Holla!"
Dan-" I'll post guards around the premisis to MAKE SURE that does not happen. I hear Chuck Norris is hiring out these days, so watch your back little miss sunshine!"
-"Oh I won't be watching my back Dan, because what you don't know is that Chuck and I happen to be going together, it's just under wraps because we didn't want to steal the spotlight from TomKat. He will be there to support me through this adventure. And i'll also have peaches with me to ward off all of your so called guards? Yeah don't worry, i"ll get it to Rob one way or another my shiney headed one"
Dan got scared and never texted me back. But if a challenge is given i take it, and that is exactly what i did.
About an hour after the whole challenge, i recieve this text from Dan.
-Dan "You are freakin' crazy! Rob just called me! oh, no you didn't! He loved it!...and you're crazy!!!
haha Love ya Dan! Never Challenge me and expect me to NOT go through with it ;)

OK, so steph (my sister) Just did a post about some Ghiradelli Peppermint chocolate or something along those lines, and said they were to die for, well excuse me Steph, but you are indeed mistaken. The true Holiday Treat that I have, and you soon will have fallen for are these baby's, They are Lindt Lindor Truffles Stracciatella. mmmm. and to tempt you more, i will describe them for you, as said on the bag, white choloate shell with cocoa pices with a smooth filling. Now if that doesn't say Eat Me, well then I don't know what does.
Try them! You will not be dissapointed my friends.

Yes I did it! I finally got to see the movie, that I have been dieing to see ALL year! And it totally lived up to my expectations! Although I will admit, the beginning of the movie was kind of slow for me, I don't know if it's because there wasn't any music, to liven it up or what? But other than that, it was fabulous!
oh and FYI, I am going to marry Edward.
And then we all headed to Ihop for some good eatin' when the movie ended, to discuss the movie, we all just couldn't get enough, so we left the restaraunt,and caught the 9:30 showing just in the nik of time, and i must say, it was even better the second time around!
haha just joking, we didn't go see it again, but we would all love to! and if you want to come just let us know, and we can go together!
oh and if you went to the movie, leave me a comment and tell me what you thought about it.

Ok Why am i this ridiculous. I was at Gateway, and me and my friend were cold so we were going to go get a steamer at starbucks, as i am walking towards the building, i see metro station, yes you heard me right, i saw metro staion! If you don't know who i am talking about they sing the song, " shake shake shake shake shake it". yes, so i am standing inside starbucks staring at them trying to work up the courage to go ask for a picture with them, but i just can't do it, but i finially think to myself, hey i have nothing to loose, so i start to walk out the door, when they stand up and walk off! ahh! you see i could've ran after them and begged them to stop and take a picture with a pathetic fan, but i didn't want to. So instead i am kicking and punching myself in the head right now.
i leave you with a picture, of them. not all 4 of them were there, but 3 were, top left bottom right and bottom left.

It is absolutly FREE! You go to this guys website send him a picture and within a week he sends you back the finshed product. I absolutly love how he got my double chin incorporated into the picture as well, it just made the picture that much more "me"! haha so enjoy, and get one done of yourself too!

YES!! I retrieved a ticket! They are almost all sold out! Can you believe it? My friend told me that the opening night was sold out and the day after, but of course i didn't believe her, but she wasn't lying. Opening night is all gone, and so is the second day, unless you go to Lowes like us Bruces. Im not quite sure why every other theaters were sold out except for one, but it just so happens, that, well, that's what happened. So we ran over and got our tickets, and I am just so darn excited, I couldn't contain my enthusiasm, I just had to share with all you people!
If you don't know what Twilight is, then I am sorry, your lame. If you have any questions, there is a Widget to the side countn' down the days, hours, minutes, seconds, to the premiere, which I wont be at, but I don't really fancy sitting out in the cold for who knows how long, ya know?
Well there you have it. If you are as obsessed as me, and are also dying to see this little film, then by golly, go get yourself a ticket!

YES! Everyone, this is my new car! I got it a few weeks ago, but havn't put pics on yet, these are pics off the internet, sooner or later i will get some authentic ones, if i ever get my car cleaned ;)
So I basically live in this car, and I will probably die in it. It's a 2006 Honda civic dark blue, with tan leather interior. I don't know what else to say except that we are soul mates and will never be seperated.
and that's all
