31 Random Facts About Me #5

Random Fact #5: My dream vehicle is a Big Black Jacked up Ford Truck! Oh yea! I want a Black Ford truck, jacked up, really high, 4 wheel drive, off road, with knobby tires and a boom system! I want my truck to be black, as I have already stated, but it is also either going to have pink racer stripes down the hood, or it’s going have Realtree Camo trim around the bottom of the truck and on the rims. As soon as I get enough money to buy one, I plan on getting my truck. I so can’t wait.

I actually had my heart set on getting myself a Chevy truck, but I changed my mind, and now I want a Ford truck. The reason why is that Dad, who actually seems to like the idea of me getting a truck, thinks that it would be smarter to get a Ford truck. Besides I think Ford trucks are really pretty sweet too.

Why do you want a truck you ask. Well, I am not a girly girl, most of y’all know that, so yea I really like trucks, I think they are so cool. Besides I mean a jacked up Camero or Mustang (the only other cars I want), would look a little bit funny, so yea. I want a truck, so I can go driving through mud, and woods, and stuff, I can haul stuff, I can give all my siblings rides in the truck bed, they love doing that, I can go to bonefire parties, and flip down my tailgate and sit on it, I can lie down in the truck bed with my friends and look at the stars, and all that good stuff. For all y’all who think I’m crazy, y’all just wait till I get my truck, I will be so cool! 😛 I’m just kidding. But really I can’t wait till I can drive.

31 Random Facts About Me #4

Random Fact #4. I used to be a Blonde. Yup! I did. I was a blonde, until I was about 3 or 4 yrs old. That is when my hair got a lot darker. Now my hair is light brown. In the summer time, we spend a lot of time on the beach, so my hair will get bleached out a few shades lighter. I like it’s when my hair gets lighter I think it looks better, than the normal Caramel brown it is. Anyway, so yea I used to be a blonde.

My Dad had bleach blonde hair when he was very little, and so did my little brother and all of my cousins, on Dad’s side of the fam. My Grandutton has naturally blonde hair, and so that is where all this blonde stuff is coming from. My Dad’s sis, Aunt Kelly, has blonde hair too.

31 Random Facts About Me #3

Random Fact #3. My Dad’s nickname for me is . . . . . . (having second thoughts about posting this already) . . . Coconut. Yea, when I was really little He started calling me Coconut, and it has stuck all my life. I used to really hate being called that, but now I don’t mind so much. The funny part about it, is that it is very accurate. I love anything that is flavored with coconut,  from ice cream (my total fav!),  cupcakes, cakes, pies, rice, and really just about anything. Coconut flavored ice cream is my absolute favorite thing in the world. A few weeks ago, my Mom and I went to do some errands, and we stopped at a local Italian Ice place called Rita’s. Anyway, I had never been there before, but before we walked in the door I looked at Mom and said, “if they have coconut, that’s what I am having”. The one thing that I really want to have, that I have not yet tried is Coconut Cream Pie, now that sounds really awesome! LOL

31 Random Facts about Me #2

Random Fact #2. I can recite all the state capitols by memory. This is just one of those things, that’s kind of silly. I worked on it pretty hard for a few days straight, and boom! now I have them all memorized. That’s all there is to it. It was fun to do. I have a really excellent memory, so it came rather easy to me.

Somethings that go along with my excellent memory are that I can listen to a song once, and have most, if not all the lyrics down pat. I remember peoples names from when I was like 2 and 3 yrs old. I have several peoples phone numbers memorized. I have several people’s addresses memorized, even though I have not seen or used their address on anything in like years. Yea, so I have like a really good memory. I promise I am not bragging here, sometimes it is really bad having such a good memory.

31 days till my birthday! 31 Random Facts About Me #1

So I have started the count down! I will be 16 in exactly 31 days!!!! I so can’t wait! Okay so to make the count down a little bit interesting I have decided to do this thing, where everyday up until my Birthday, I will post a random fact about me. Some of them will be really goofy, some will be really embarrassing, and some will be very serious to me. I hope this will make it fun! I so can’t wait till my birthday.

So . . . . . .

Random Fact #1. I am afraid of the dark. Yes you heard correctly. Depending on where it is, though. If it is our house, I am not scared of the dark. I could literally walk around this house blindfolded (we did this one time with all of my sisters and I, and it was pretty funny) and still get right where I want to. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of those people who believes there is a boogie man behind every bench, but I have been startled and scared out of my brain, way too many times, in the pitch black dark. Like our yard, is very wooded, so in the day time, I know every inch of it, literally, and I have no fear, but the minute that the sun goes down, and our yard gets all shadowy, I am scared to death about being out there with out a light, or someone with me.  I am very easy to startle. Most of my really close friends can attest to that fact, because they have all startled me pretty badly. Thus it is very fun, for most people, to startle me, because it’s so easy. One of the things that contributed to me being so afraid of the dark, is that  I have had so many friends take me out into a really dark yard, and like hide behind a tree and then jump out and like scare me to death, and stuff like that.

For those of you who are reading this, (Yea I’m talking to you Harley, Larissa, and Olivia) who now want to startle the living day lights out of me. I will warn you, that as a result of being being startled so many times, I am very observant, so I don’t miss much. I say all that to say this, good luck, if it works for you. I hope it was amusing. You will get a pretty good laugh out of me, and maybe a scream, because I was startled, but yea.

Black Tie Chocolate Mousse Cheese Cake and Sore ears

Okay so as most of you, know my birthday is today! Yay! Something I’ve found myself impatiently waiting for lately. I’ve been waiting for this day for a while. Then yesterday, i was thinking, and this thought popped into my head,”15! Wow, i can’t actually imagine myself as a fifteen year old, it’s just to hard! I mean like I’ve been waiting to turn 15, like it’s something grand! But I really am just a little bit scared to turn, such a big number! I mean think of it, fifteen, that is a whole decade and a half! And with such  a big number comes with a lot more responsibilities and requirements! And then just think, where did all those years go, when I could do just about anything and people would think it was cute, and just laugh?!” So now y’all get to see what I think! =P But anyway, yes that is what I was thinking and to tell the total truth, yes I am just a little bit scared/nervous to make such a big step in life. But I mean there just is no avoiding it, so what’s the big deal, well I’m sure this will be another year full of the important life decisions, of a teenager, and the slightest slip up and I will not be allowed to forget it, not with all my sisters and and friends and everybody =) With all this said, I hope that this year is full of growth and maturity, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Oh and yes of course i hope this is a year full of happiness and joy, or of course Sunshine =P (Pun intended)

Okay, enough of the rambling =P

So last weekend we were at my Abuelita’s (Grandmother in Spanish) house, in Boca Raton. We live quite a ways from her, like a total of about 250 miles to the north, so we only get to see her at least once a month. And whenever we are down there around somebody’s birthday, we like to go to this special Mexican restaurant for whoever’s birthday it is. So last week, we went to Uncle Julio’s, with Abuelita, and I was just sitting a the table, with a week to go still, till my birthday, and I was just kinda contemplating what exactly what I want for my birthday, because I mean since last year when I got the Nikon D100 camera, for my birthday, I really have not wanted anything else in particular. But there is one thing I have wanted for a long time, and now I think i have a chance that I might be able to get it, this year. I wanted to ask to get my ears pierced this year, for my 15th birthday. So I announced there at the table, that this is what I want, for my birthday. My parents agreed to “think about it” or in reality I think they kinda needed a little bit of time to get used to the idea itself =) So that was fine with me, just a long as they let me know as soon as a decision was made. Well, knowing my parents, as some of y’all do, they love surprises, and it seem that they not only love to surprise us children, but I tend to think they like to surprise me, especially. Don’t ask me me why because I don’t know why, but I think it might be, more fun to surprise me, more than the rest of my siblings, because it’s just a little bit harder to surprise me.

I am a very observant person, and several times in the past I have figured out what the plans were without any information just a few observations and a little bit of intuition. So yea, when they want to surprise me, they have to work really hard, in order for it to really be a good surprise =)

So anyways, back to the subject at hand. So, it was not till this past Wednesday that i was informed of the decision. So here is what happened. When Papa got home from school that day, he mentioned having to go sometime and go do some “errands” around town, and that he would probably take me with him. I must add here that my sisters did not know anything about my my request at all, and did not know that I had any plans at all to get my ears pierced. So, then around dinner time, Papa and I finally left the house. I only thought we were going to Claire’s, at the Mall, to get my ears done, I did not know Papa had any other plans. When we got to Claire’s, I was just a little bit nervous, because I did know that there would be some kind of pain involved in the process, but I did not know that extent of the anticipated pain, because I have never gotten my ears pierced before. The lady (for lack of a better term, or title) there was very nice, and assured me that the pain was not very bad at all. Then she cleaned my ears and her hands and got all the stuff ready. Once everything was ready, she then marked my ears so that she would know exactly where to pierce. The first ear, was a little bit startling, and no, I did not jump. =P The second ear was not that bad, either, and that was pretty much it!

After Claire’s Papa announced that he was taking me to Olive Garden for dinner. Another one of my family’s b-day celebration/memorials, is the daughter( Noah still has not participated in this one yet)  and Papa will go out for dinner for a Father-Daughter dinner. I think I started that one, but i’m sure someone will say other wise =P So, we went to Olive Garden. We had a very enjoyable dinner. Papa took a job there at Olive Garden a few months ago, and he just recently quit, so when we went in, of course we were greeted by the hostess and she recognized him immediately as did several other employees there. We were seated in the section that Papa had covered several times before, and our waiter was a young gentleman named Adrial, another one of Papa’s friends.After dinner we enjoyed a slice of the Black Tie Chocolate Mousse Cheese Cake, for desert. It was very yummy.

I had a lot of fun, and I want to thank my awesome Papa, (who informed just about all his friends there at the Olive Garden, of my upcoming 15th birthday) for the wonderful evening and for his letting me get my ears pierced =) Thank you, Papa. I love you.

Shabbat Shalom Y’all

~Sunshine =)
