I can't get enough!

I don't know if you know but I LOVE movies! Jon thinks that I am crazy at times. But if I buy a movie that I enjoy I can watch it over and over and over and over again! Just ask Holli! lol She was my blockbuster when we lived in California and I would borrow movies over and over and over again. That summer I bet I watched Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire about 200 times. We bought Ironman 2 weeks ago and I believe that I have watched it about five or six times.

One of my all time favorite movies is scheduled to come out tomorrow. . . The Hulk. This movie is better than the one that came out a few years ago. And plus it has a tie into the movie Ironman. I have to wait patiently to buy it when we have the funds for it but you can count on me to have it soon. lol When Jon and I do get our own place with a mortgage I would love to have a wall full of movies that both Jon and I love!

Plus when I went on choir tour to San Francisco in 2005 I found a store just on the bay that had a lot of freeze frames of some of my favorite Disney movies. . . .Peter Pan, Beauty and the Beast and some others. I still have not framed them but I sure do plan too. I am also trying to find some other freeze frames from other Disney movies.

Wal-Mart is not good when you reach the $5 a DVD display. The last time Jon and I were pulling in by the $5 a DVD display was about a month ago. We left Wal-Mart with 16 DVDs. We are now going thru WDA(Wal-Mart DVDs Anonymous) meetings with our good friends Kelly and Anthony. All of us are on step two, don't go into the entertainment section of Wal-Mart. Is has been hard but we are getting there


When the time comes. . . .

Jon and I have been planning to have a lot on our plates for the next three to four years. As some currently know we are living with my parents at the moment. We are planning to have all of our debt (not including car payments) paid off by April 2009. And hopefully own our own home by June of July of 2009. We still have to figure out what we want to do to get all of our furniture for our new home and such, but that decision is going to come when it's really necessary. Hopefully by either spring or summer semestre Jon will be able to start school to become a high school math teacher. I am in school now to become a elementary teacher.

Hearing little feet running around the house is one of our dreams. But we don't really know when we are going to try to have children. It may be two years or it may be four. We both have different and similar dreams. . . I would love a room full of books of mine and Jon's favorites. I have already made a list of about 54 which I have calculated to be around $700 total for the lot. Oh and we can't forget Jon's favorite series The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan which the sequel Memory of The Light is coming out October of 2009.
Jon would love to build his own computer so he could have the best computer to play one of his favorite online game. . .World of Warcraft.

The Walk for Suicide Prevention. . .

The Walk for suicide prevention took place on Saturday, September 27,2008. I find out about the walk from my close friend Carly, who also lost a loved one to suicide. I formed a team together full of family and friends. We walked in memory of Garrick. In hope that we can help somehow we could help another family or person to get educated about suicide and the effects it can take on anyone who loses a loved one to suicide. We were raising money for THE AMERICAN FOUNDATION FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION.

If you want to learn more about the AFSP, go to

The Group after the long walk. Everyone is exhausted and are ready for a long nap! :) And we are also waiting for the drawing for prizes! Shawn (Jon's brother) ended up winning a free fooseball table. Mom (Jeanne) won a free Ping Pong table. Which was interesting when Ping Pong was one of Garrick's favorite games to play. And Damomma Dott won a $100 gift certificate to a Laser Hair Removal Center.

Jon wanting some more water. And can you tell that it was a really bright day!

Kelly and Anthony enjoying a laugh with us about how the energy drink mixed didn't taste as good as it looks.

Damomma Dott enjoying her slice of Great Harvest Wheat bread with honey. YUMMMMYYY!!!

The Walk was a sucess! We raised a lot of money and there were many other people there. Hopefully we will have the same turn out at the other walks in the future I am planning to be a team captain for. Thank You to everyone who has supported me and family in this hard time. If you want to be apart of the next walk I will put up a post about the next walk as soon as I know. If you are not in my area. You can go to the and look up upcaoming walks in your area. Thanks to everyone for youe support! I love you all!
