• “Love is when he is mean to you and you still want him, it’s when he ignores you and you still love him, it’s when he loves another girl but you still smile and say I’m happy for you, when all you really want to do is cry.”
  • “A wise girl asks but doesn’t believe; kisses but doesn’t fall in love ; & leaves before she gets left ” – Marilyn Monroe
  • But then there’s that one person. You let them in & you trust them & you think maybe, just maybe, everything you’ve ever gone through is worth it, cause you found someone on this messed up planet who knows you.
  • Do you want to know what my problem is?
    I will tell you what my problem is…i love you. I love your name, I love the way you look at me, I love your gorgeous smile, I love the way you walk, I love your beautiful eyes, I love the sound of your laugh, i love the way you get mad, i love the way i dont understand you at all. I love the way I can be having the worst day of my life and seeing you completely changes my mood. I love how when you touch me I get weak, thats my problem… 
  • Have you ever really thought about it ?
    You’ve got this girl, head over heels in love with you. She’d do anything for you. But for some reason, you don’t want to see that. You know it’s there, but you just wont accept it so you try to make her go away. — maybe this girl is perfect for you.
                   And that really scares the hell outta you, doesn’t it?
  • In your life, you meet people. Some you never think about. Some, you wonder what  happened to them. There are some that you wonder if they ever think about you. And then there are the few you wish you never had to think about again. But you do.
  • knowing is better than wondering; waking is better than sleeping; & even the biggest failure beats the hell out of never trying. 
  • Love? We think about it, sing about it, dream about it, lose sleep worrying about it. When we don’t have it, we search for it; when we discover it, we don’t know what to do with it; when we have it, we fear losing it. It is the constant source of pleasure and pain. Be we can’t predict which it will be from one moment to the next. It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define, impossible to live without.
  • you dont just walk away from people… you dont just delete people out of your life.

san antonio, tx

June 22, 2010

i realized i haven’t updated in forever, plus i keep getting text messages from my friend val! lol.  oh well, here you go.

this weekend i went to austin, tx to visit some friends D.J., Bryan, Cadi and Alex. On Sunday, M and I drove down to San Antonio, Tx.  M originally wanted to go for his birthday July 1st, however I work so that plan fell through. I decided to see a cousin of mine Jennifer Blom and her three girls and thought well, convenient we can spend the night in San Antonio since neither of us work on Monday. So I surprised him… but in first he had to hang out with the girls with me.  We went to Boerne, Tx to the Berges Fest (German festival).  It was alot of fun… we walked around with the girls, drank Cherry-Lemonade, ate Chicken on a stick, Chocolate Dipped Cheesecake, etc.  It was fun but HOTT–around 100 degrees plus humidity.  After a few hours of being in the heat and playing with the girls, we decided we were ready to go back to an A/C hotel room.  Its the little things lately that keep me sane.  lol.

So, here are some pictures of the girls and us at Berges Fest as well as some pics of us before hitting the town in San Antonio!     enjoy

pizza casserole

June 14, 2010

us Symens kids love mom’s Rice-A-Roni Casserole (reminds me of a pizza casserole).  I made it for M the first week we were dating and he tried acting like he didn’t like it… but kept seeing him go back to the kitchen to get more.  “What? Its convieniently there when Im getting more water”.  Haha.  He asked me again this week to make it for him, so thought I’d share a family secret recipe.  Hope mom doesn’t get mad  🙂

8 oz pkg rice a roni (beef flavor)
15 oz jar Ragu spaghetti sauce
1 lb hamburger
1 cup cheddard cheese grated
1 cup mozzarella cheese grated
Grease 9×13 pyrex pan. Prepare Rice-a-Roni as directed on the pkg. Spread in pyrex pan. Pour spaghetti sauce over rice. Brown hamburger, drain. Put over sauce. Sprinkle cheddard cheese over hamburger. sprinkle mozzarella cheese. bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
(While the rice is simmering according to directions on the package, brown the hamburger.. )

enjoy! its very good and easy!

Will you like to watch the sunrise
Will you have blue or brown eyes
What are the dreams you long to share

I hope you like Stevie Wonder
Are you afraid of thunder
I close my eyes and say a prayer you’re out there somewhere

I’ve been waiting all my life for you
I’ve been wishing on every shining star
I’ve been watching out of my window
Wondering where you are Wondering where you are

My heart’s my only treasure
I’ve been saving it for your pleasure
I can’t wait to give my heart to you

We’ll walk this road together
That leads us to forever
I close my eyes and say a prayer you’re out there somewhere


Too many nights alone
And this house won’t be a home until I’m with you

I’ve been waiting all my life for you
I’ve been wishing on every shining star


Wondering where you are Wondering where you are
Wondering where you are Wondering where you are

– wondering where you are, tyrone wells
