The worse night of my life!

So, I have a funny story...I really just had one of the worse nights of my life! All I wanted was a little Ben & Jerry's ice cream so I leave my apt. (without a jacket) to go to the store. I accomplish the mission of getting my ice cream but on the way home (less than 1 mile from my apt) I get pulled over for going like 32 mph in a 25 mph zone. It is 11 degrees and slightly breezy outside. This is where the worse night of my nightmare begin. I roll my window down and get my license, insurance info, and registration for the cop. Of course I am shaking a) because I don't want a ticket (who doesn't have the deer in the headlights look when they get pulled over and b) because my window is down and it is freezing outside (I don't have a coat/jacket mind you) So the cop comes back and asked if I have anything illegal in my car. Of course I don't !!! I am not that crazy! (Even if I did I wouldn't confess) He then states that I look very suspicious and asks if he could search my car. I didn't really car so I was all like, "O.k search it." I was still in the driver's seat. He then said that he needed me to get out of my car and go stand with this other officer. The other officer must of pulled up with no lights whatsoever on because I didn't see him pull up. Creeper! I was kind of mad because now I am out of my car and have on no jacket. The first officer precedes to thoroughly search my car every crack, crease, crevice, bag, envelope...everything! I am standing thinking, "Wow 2 cops here...this is like the entire Rexburg Police Force." So I make small talk with the other officer. I asked, "Is this normal procedure?" He then asks if I have a warrant out. My next thought was, "Crap..I think I have one in Tn from wrecking the ambulance and not showing up for court." Of course I didn't confess to this. I replied, "Not that I know of" The searching officer finally gets to my trunk. I carry my food storage in the trunk of my car. There is a ten pound bag of flour back there. I wanted to say, "That's actually cocaine in that bag I just disguise it as flour in case something like this ever happens" Anyways the search of my car came to an end but then I had to be searched. Mind you I didn't have on baggy clothes. They still had to search me. Then the officer looks all authoritative and says, "Everything looks fine. I'm going to let you off with just a warning." I wanted to be like, "Of course you are, you just searched and frisked me with no good reason. That was probably the most action you've got in your life!" So that's the story of the worse night of my life...or week...I know I am being over dramatic. Thought you might enjoy it. I find it pretty humorous now that it is over and I finally got to eat my Ben & Jerry's.

Daddy's Text

I never thought in a million years that my dad would be a texter...but turns out he is! I always love getting text from him. Yesterday he sent me a text and I though I would share it with everyone because I loved it so much. Here it is: Hey beauty. I was missing you and came up with some words that describe you. I used each letter of Rebekah to start the words. I love my girl!
This text really made me happy. Then he sent me some more words to describe me. Because I love them so much I will mention them too!!!
Pleasant, Sharpshooter, Gentle, Cheerful, Smiling Woman.
Good pastry cooking cook PLUS you can bring home the meat & fry it in a pan!
I really love getting the text from daddy. They really do cheer up my day especially when it isn't going the best!

I want a pet

When I went home for Christmas I saw a sugar glider. They are so cute! Since then I have really been wanting a pet. The only problem is that I can't have a pet in student housing. Sad story! I have often said that my first order of business when I get out of school and get a place of my own would be to get a dog!!! I really want one now. Anyways back to the story. I was sitting at home today and Googling apartment friendly pets. Things such as fish, turtles, hermit crabs, snakes, rats, spiders, ferrets, and sugar gliders came up. I really want a pet I can cuddle. I was expressing this desire to my roommates and they said, "Why don't you just get a dog?" Then the wheels in my head started turning. I wondered is it really possible that I could get a dog and hide it from my apartment manager??? I then thought about getting a Chorkie, like James and Kara had. They are small, don't seem to have a loud bark, and could probably easily be hide if needed. My roommate then suggested that I look at Chiweenies. Let me say that they are adorable. I know it really isn't realistic for me to get one so I am thinking about seeing if I can volunteer at an animal shelter or something. I really love dogs and can't wait to get one!

What is Love?

With Valentine's day quickly approaching I wanted to write a little about love. There are tons of songs about it. It seems like the majority of movies portray it in some shape, form, or fashion. Yet I am twenty four years old and still do not feel like I have found the true meaning of love. I know that there are various types. You can say you love a piece of art but that does not mean you love it the same way you love your family member. I am sure that parents love their children different than they love their very own siblings. Then there is romantic love. What can you say about that? I feel like most people search their whole lives to find this type of love. Some people are so very fortunate to find it. Some find it and let it go, while others find it and are wise enough to hold on to with all their strength. It bothers me, the people who find it and let it go! It isn't the fact that they let it go that bothers me it is the fact on how they are able to find it again! I wish there were and easy formula for love. It might be like this: (1)Boy meets girl (2)Girl flirts a little with boy (3)Boy likes all of girls attention (4)Boy asks girl on date (5)Girl and boy fall in love (6) They live happily ever after. Unfortunately for me love and life are not this easy. Maybe I am a little discouraged because I always imagined myself being married at this age. Then it seems like all these girls that are younger than me have found their prince charming. This is really hard for me...I want to yell out, "What about me, haven't I earned my prince charming yet??" I feel like I go to church, I participate in activities, I have been to school and am going back to school...what else do I need to do??? So yes, maybe I am a little bitter that I am 24 and single! Honestly I think the thing that bothers me most is that lately I have realized how much I really just want to me a mom and I have come to the realization that this might not be a realistic goal for me. It really is frustrating. I guess I will just have to be patient and wait things out but I am not a patient girl at all. We'll see what happens in my life. Anyways I hope everyone has a great Valentine's day. Thanks for reading my brief period of venting.
