Day Six...Favorite super hero and why...

Hmmm..Hmmm This one is hard! I have never really been into super heroes, heroins before. BUT If I had to say my favorite super hero would be Helen Incredible AKA Elasti-girl!!
She is stretchy and can do just about anything. Being a super mom and doing all this other cool super hero stuff...I hope I am a cool mom like that! Du Du Du!

Day Five...A picture of a place I have been to..

So summer 2009 Andrew went back home to Hawaii after school and so we did the whole long distance thing...skype, phone calls, packages, etc...it was hard but adventurous and fun at the same time! I bought a plane ticket (well my daddy did...hehe) and went to visit him and meet his family. I was there for 3 weeks...it was a blast! This particular picture is taken at "Chinaman's Hat." It is a little island you can walk (if the tide is low enough) or float out to..it is so cool. you can't live there, it is just somewhere you can walk around and carve your initials into trees and what not. haha On our way back...I got stung by a jelly fish..I think it was called portuguese man of war or something..ouchy! It hurt, but it was fun nontheless:) good memories, glad I got to go visit!

Day Four..a habit I wish I didn't have...

Habits Habits Habits...they can be good or bad. A habit that I reeeeallly wish I didn't have was biting, picking, ripping, mutilating my poor finger nails. They "say" if you sustain from doing a habit for 2 weeks, it will go away. uh hum..I've gone months without biting my nails and it always comes back-dur! Sometimes I think stress has to do with it, and the fact my nails are not thick and strong, they snag and break when they get longer. Another habit would be to not pick at my face...but I am sorry-I think all girls understand the reason why we do! UGH gotta love those beautiful acne attacks.
