Tonight, Nate's side of the family threw Cali a baby shower.
some prime things happened that i must blog about.
1. i was mistaken for cali. her aunt came up behind me and said, here's the special, then paused and looked and my stomach and noticed i was not pregnant, then found cali 2 chairs away. so hysterical.
2. cali has this hilarious grandma D, and she came over and was talking to me and asked what my name was, when i told her 'cailey' she thought i said kiwi then proceeded to burst into hysterics. it was the funniest thing of my life.
3. her mother in law told us about a HAWT boy from her younger days. it was quite comical.
a fantastic night all and all.
i love hanging with the sisters and chatting about everything.

when coming home late at night, she suggests stalking the houses of boys.
instead of reprimanding me for sneaking out, she tells me to walk out the front door.
she tells me to invite boys over so she can stalk them,
then proceeds to tell me not to because dad might say something embarrassing.
she's hysterical. even if her jokes aren't funny.
she facebook stalks. then proceeds to tell me. "so i saw on facebook..."
she has great suggestions. "get some bubble gum and spell yes." then what? " i don't know?"
sometimes she texts you hilarious things, one night i got a text from her about a grown man in walmart wearing footie pajamas but she couldn't take a picture for me because she was laughing too hard.
she often desires to take pictures of people's haircuts she likes, creepy.
she accepts my love for every boy and will help me plan my life with them. Once, we got a picture of my missionary brother and his (attractive) companion and she immediately thought of me.
she will stalk boys with me. sometimes i force her into but she loves it. read a great stalking story here
she often texts you. and with smiley faces, and a possible LOL just me make me feel weird.
she gives me boy advice. (invite him over, write him a note, tell him you don't bite.)
she doesn't mind too much when i keep her up late at night with my ramblings.
so basically, my mom is just ridiculously cool.

The other day, in seminary, the question of the day was what is the most pathetic thing about yourself? I've been thinking about it lately and decided to make a list:
I still sleep with a beanie baby.
I have a hair schedule and I get really stressed if I don't follow it. I plan it days in ahead according to where I need to go and such. With this hair schedule I have a pillow schedule. One pillow for clean hair, one for dirty hair. I once heard that your hair gets dirtier if you sleep on a dirty pillow. hence, pillow schedule.
If a nail is chipped, I get really really annoyed & can't stop thinking about it until I fix it.
If I don't do my own laundry, I get stressed that people will do it wrong.
My closet, it's color coordinated, and if you mess it up, i will hit you. I take it very seriously.
I have a certain way of making my bed and don't like other people doing it because it's different.
I always click the 'lock' button twice when I leave the car.
I often check the door to make sure it's locked more than once.
I can't park to save my life.
I always have to drive with my shoes off.
I'm a clean freak, germaphobe. I wash my hands a lot.
I watch wayyy too much tv.
I am constantly spilling on my shirt, especially hot sauce from taco amigo.

I awoke and got ready, I arrived at school in great condition.
Roll was taken, packets were handed out and suddenly, I felt ill. Like barfing.
I quickly asked to go to the bathroom where I called my mother.
I went back to the classroom, was asked if I was in that class by the substitute (uh, duh. I left like 2 seconds ago.) Got my backpack and weird looks, and began the walk to the uss quest. Of course, I parked almost the furthest I could from my first period, the long walk was torture.
I began to drive, turned off locust, decided I should pull over, then barfed. After some time of barfing, I called my mother and made the drive down the road. I sat in the car, crying until my dad came out and helped me. I barfed a couple more times after that. But oddly there was no pain in my stomach, just my heart and back. I walked upstairs to my parent's room, the pain only got worse. Eventually I was yelling into my pillow and squirming in pain. My mother called the doctor, and got an appointment in about 30 minutes. My dad gave me a blessing and I tried to sleep.
The ride to the doctors office was awful, so many bumps in the road. My mom dropped me off up front to park, and I was greeted by a smiling Lisa Logan. "hey baby girl. are you feeling better?" Not really, but her greeting made me happy. I was told to go in the other doors, as I waited for my mother I began to barf into the plastic baggie my mother had brought. The man coming through the doors while barfing gave me a sympathetic smile and I was embarrassed.
I got checked in and was visiting the nurse in no time.
I layed on the uncomfortable bed, and waited for the doctor. A young man came in and introduced himself, he was a student working with the doctor. He poked me and prodded and asked all sorts of awkward questions, all while I fought sleep. Then, he must have really wanted to be barfed on because he stuck a tongue thing down my throat, and then proceeded to poke my stomach real hard. Genius idea, let's poke the sick girl's stomach. Sometime between him and the doctor, I fell asleep. I was awoken and poked and prodded some more. The doctor said a bunch of big words that ended in itis and I again, fought sleep. He said I needed an ultrasound. We went across the hall and this guy put warm goo all over my stomach then prodded me some more. Finally he was done and I was moved to yet another room. I layed on the bed and was immediately out. I woke when I heard someone walk into the room proclaiming, Oh that poor thing. Then, dazed, I opened my eyes to find out I had to get my blood drawn. Oh great, my favorite thing. I was out of it and couldn't remember when I had moved into that room and said funny things, I'm sure. Then, shot time. Anti-nausea. The nurse prodded my hip then stuck. I squirmed and held my mom's hand. Finally, it was time to go. And I felt lovely. I got a juice press and went home to catch up on television. The pain was gone and I felt fine. I watched tv for a while then fell asleep for about two hours. I woke up to my mother calling me. The doctor called and found... nothing. What? I know, I'm just as confused as you.

He was gone, out of sight, out of mind.
It wasn't easy to forget him, but eventually I pushed it out of my mind. People said I was different, that I had changed. I played it off with a laugh and a smile. I hadn't liked him so whatever. Yeah right, Cailey. Finally, he was gone. Not even thoughts of him could bring me down.
When seen by friends, I got a text proclaiming his arrival. I wasn't excited, but butterflies often played tag in my stomach. I wasn't looking forward to school, the thought of seeing him made me feel awkward. First week: in the clear. holla, I thought I was safe, at least until next semester. Psych. There he was, sitting in class. My breathing became shallow and I may have peed a little. Then, as I sat in class, in he walked. Lovely. I avoided eye contact, pretending I hadn't seen him. But naturally, the only seat available was right in front of me. Our eyes met and a fake smile appeared on my face. Awkwardness ensues, and he decides we're best friends. I'm friendly but feel weird. The next day, 1st period; before I open the door, I see him through the window. Oh great. It must of shown on my face how I was feeling, I was received with a 'you look tired' 'uh, yeah, first period.' I, again pretended I didn't see him but we all knew I had.

We sold my car.
His name was Tibbs.
He failed at life, there were a lot of things wrong with him.
So now, i'm carless but searching.
While I search, I share the USS quest with my mother.
Who doesn't want to drive a mini van with 'connies timeless quilts' on the back?
It's ok to be jealous.
Rugar & Alicia were gone today in seminary. Sad day.
Jesse and I dominated at cats cradle.
Comfy dresses are nice.
Aerobics tomorrow? I'm afraid for my life.
I keep getting massive headaches.
Hey Monday. good band.
Hillcrest tomorrow. maybe we'll win? Either way, i'll be there.
I thought I could escape him, but as soon as I thought that, there he was, practically stalking me. Don't pretend like suddenly things are like they used to be.
Why does he have to be so darn handsome? And smell good too?
& there's glitter on the floor.
It feels good to be done with a project before it's due.
clay underneath my fingernails is real annoying.
I really love when teachers relate their lesson to a movie, even if it's a little thing. You know how I love movies a whole lot. It just makes my day brighter when Mrs. Beckstrom talks about Erin Brockovich or Mrs. R reveals miss congeniality is her favorite show, just like me.
p.s. please say someone besides me has seen erin brockovich? There were like two of us in my science class.
I miss Mickell.

I believe that I discovered something today.
Dresses, they're annoying. Fact.
Another fact? I dislike wearing them. 3 hours at church is enough for me.
But, perhaps its not the dresses I dislike so much, but the constricting feeling you get from the accessories following the dresses. I.e, heels, necklaces, belts etc.
Today, I wore a dress. And quite enjoyed it.
But, instead of heels or even flats, I wore keds.
No constricting shoes.
I did wear a belt, and although it was small, I still felt a little constricted.
So, the verdict?
dresses + keds = a happy cailey.

I get bored easily.
Just a fact of my life.
There I was, in seminary, bored.
I was coloring with my pencil (red pencils are way better to color with, not sure why.)
I stopped to look up, and began to twirl my pencil.
Then, it flew and hit me in the eye.
