Rest In Peace

Wow can you beleive M.J., Farrah Fawcett, and Ed McMahon died?
Michael may have been kind of wacko but you can't deny that he had INCREDIBLE talent.
He will surely be missed, he had an amazing impact on the music industry.
Here is one my all time favorite songs from him.
Black or White

Michael Jackson - Black Or White (Official Music Video) - The top video clips of the week are here
And of course you can't talk about M.J without discussing Thriller. Probably one of the Best music videos ever! But that's just my opinion :)

Pine View

Yesterday Haley, Lori, the kids, and I drove up to the Dam for some summer fun!
We had a blast, we pretty much had the beach to ourselves, there were just two other families there. probably because the beach was so small. Last time we went there was tons of beach, and we only had to pay like $4 to get in, but this year there was seriously only a few yards, and we had to pay $10 to get in. what crap.
but here are some pictures of the festivities.

So I here-by promise that this is the LAST picture of the nasty thing.

Just keep it coming...

Ha ha. ok.
So things are happening.
Today I was putting some shine serum on Zions hair because i had straightened it, and if any of you know ethnic hair, you know it absorbs like no other, seriously right after you wash it, if you dab it with a towel it's dry, but that's not the point, the point is, i had to put a lot of serum in to make her hair shiny. so now that i've used 1/4 of the bottle I have all this excess stuff on my hands so what do i do? I think...."you know how all these celebrities have shiny legs? I wonder how they do it. Oh! maybe they use like shine serum!"
So i apply it to my legs.
and the balls of my feet, because they are ruff, and me being fun, think if i put shiny stuff on them, that they will be soft. yep. no.
so i proceed to stand up and go downstairs to get some beans for my mother.
i start heading down the stairs and see a towel that i told zion to go put in my bathroom. but i decide to just kick it down the stairs since it is haley's towel anyways.
so...i kick.
and it was like a banana was placed at that very moment under my foot.
so...i slipped.
boy did i slip.
i slipped down to the 2 step.
I kept thinking. i'm going to stop, but i just seemed to keep going.
As i reached pretty much the bottom of the stair case, an overwhelming pain comes to my body. exact location would be my back (where they shingles are) and my upper arm.
by this time my mom is at my side because she heard the thud thud thud. and zion is above me, telling me " it's ok kels, i'll go get you an ice pack stay there".
I am dying of laughter. but i am crying.
my arm is throbbing, and my back? well it was in a crap load of unecessary pain.
so needless to say, i wont be applying any shine serum to my feet anytime soon, i will just keep it to my legs.
but now i will leave you of some lame pictures.
it was much worse at the time of the accident, but now the bruise has dwindled, but the pain still reminds me of it's precence.
so if you look really hard you might be able to see some slight discoloration.
and my arm looks retarded because i was trying to take a picture of the back of my arm by my self. it's really hard.

I feel so loved :)

So within the week I have had some visitors bearing wonderful gifts for me. My little primary girl Tyler, brought me homemade cookies right out of the oven and a little handmade picture.

One of my best friends Michelle, who i've been friends with since before preschool, brought me some more homemade sugar cookies with all this cute little pipeing on all of them. of course there were only two left when i took the picture, there were just too good NOT to eat.

Then my best friend marissa, made me a cake! It was so cute, and my favorite kind too! Rainbow Chip! It was so cute, it had all of our inside jokes written on it.
but of course we had eaten a strip of it too before i got a picture haha.

Today I got a special package in the mail from my Beautiful and Amazing sister Steph. She is the kindest and most thoughtful person. I got the package that read, from sista steph to kelsie "kel-wray" Bruce. I opened it right away expecting like a package of candy or something, but no. I got candy, lip gloss, super cute earrings, a shirt!, and of course a little card. which said:

Kels, I heard you were pretty sick. sorry I can't be there to make you laugh, watch Madea movies & lift your spirits. But I thought a package might help. Nothing makes me happier these days then a package/letter in the mail. I hope you feel better soon. Know what we are thinking of you & you're in our prayers xoxo Steph.

This made my day! Steph I couldn't ask for a better sister. We get along so great, I can only remember one time that we have ever really had a fight, and that was this year, but it didn't last even 5 minutes haha. I want you to know how much I love you, and how much it means to me that you would think of me, and even send me a freaking package of goodies! You are seriously the best! I love you sooo much!

This is my best friend Marissa Mikami's blog.
I was reading this post today and was DYING of laughter!
Please read it.
Oh and the rest of her blog is amazingly and similarly written too. so check it out.
If you don't laugh, you have a problem.

well somehow i can't make a link right now.

so copy and paste this address:


Well last week we were in Cali! It was so much fun. We left Layton Sunday morning and ventured on our 12 hour drive to San Francisco! It was so amazing. we stopped in Napa the first night and then went to the winery the next day and sampled wines from around the world. SOO YUMMY

Yeah right.
We sampled CHEESE from around the world. so good.

then we were off to San Fran the next day. WOW
so cool. we drove through Muir woods where the redwoods are and then across the golden gate bridge, down Lomard Street AKA the crooked road and to our condo to check in, (located right in downtown SF) and headed a couple blocks down to H&M my FAVORITE store on the planet earth!

Spent too much money!

Next day we went to fishermans warf to pier 39 so cool! We ate at Bubba Gumps. tastey tastey and so fun.
then off to see WICKED! I had never heard the music to this broadway show or even heard of the story line, so it was a great surprise. Amazing, you totally need to go see it.

Next day we headed down to Solvang which is a little dutch community in the middle of Cali. it was cute. we went to a little resteraunt called the Mustard Seed, and made frieds with the owner who was from jerusalem.
then we decided to go to the "market" next door for some food for the next morning. yeah not a market. it was a liquor store. and as we walked out there were 2 hispanics and a white man standing there with one hand in the pocket of their hoodie (and this is a zip up hoodie mind you) and could totally see the image of a gun. lets just say i walked as quickly as possible without seeming like i knew what they were up to.

we made it safely back to the car as you can tell.

then it was off to san diego the next morning. I should mention that the whole point of this trip was to go see my cousin Abby get married.

so we get there and have fun. I buy a new phone charger since the one i had was left in Napa. Then we do more shopping at H&M yay!

next day we go to the mall again, and go see UP and eat dinner at the california pizza kitchen.

mine was delicious. a bbq chicken pizza.
my parents on the other hand? didn't settle too well.

then the wedding! it was beautiful. so glad we made it.
Ok i will stop talking now and start posting pictures. ENJOY!
Oh and PS If you don't know what a picture is i'm sorry, something is screwed up and i can't see the pictures before i post them, it's just a bunch of numbers and words, so i don't know what the picture is, if i wanted to put a subtititle under it. but the one of me in the skirt is me at H&M. that skirt was all tulle, and cost like $70. if you have any other questions about the pictures just leave a comment and i will let you know :)

Shingles Update

So i know i said i wasn't going to post any nasty pictures of this horrible-ness, but I think i shall do it anyways, just so you guys can see what it is. I of course wont show you the nether region, but here is my back. it's not the prettiest back to begin with, but i'm sure you can look past that and see the ouchiness.

Why me?

I have these....

except in rash form on the entire right side of my body. It started friday in Cali, yes California. my mom and I came to the conclusion that it was probably just a boil from sitting too long in the car / leather seats. But it just kept getting worse. painfulling worse and worse. So yesterday i went to the doc. and he said well it's either shingles or a herpes virus (not the naughty one) but after i got home they started spreading, and shingles we know stay to one side of your body. well that's how it is. my right side is being seriously affected. i'm not going to lie, it's probably the most painful thing i've gone through, and i've gone through quite a bit of pain. so i wont get into the hairy details of it all. but it started down in my groin ( which is probably the worst place to get anything) and has spread up to my stomach and back. OH JOY!
I left you with a picture of shingles on the roof, but if you want to see the real deal you can google it and there will be a rather large amount of pictures for you to gander at.
well i must go and be miserable now.
