merry chiestmas

Merry Chiestmas! For some reason my iPhone does not self correct "chiestmas" when I type it in, so Lisha has been wishing me a merry chiestmas ever since. Anyways, this took me a while to finish, but I wanted to leave you all with a list of songs that I loved this year. It is NOT a list of the best of 2009, this is just music that I found myself listening to. Some of it was rediscovered and some of it was discovered. So enjoy!

quick question

So I can't write a lot because I am studying for a test tomorrow. But I have been meaning to write about something... nay, ask something.

What's with girls? I mean, to be more specific. As Lisha, picks out outfits, chooses nail polishes, does her hair, etc, etc, etc... she will invariably ask wither "Which one do you like best?" or "Does this look okay?"

I respond with my honest opinion. For example, "Grey" or "Ya, you look awesome! I love that skirt"

But then something weird happens, she will almost always respond with "Mmm... I like the red better" or "I don't know, I'm going to wear my leopard print dress."

Girls are weird.

... I love you Lisha!

Also this came to my attention today:
