I havent blogged in a while, so I felt like it was time to update everyone of the latest and greatest. I just finished my fall 2 session at Chapman and the class that I dreaded the most (Statistics) is over! I have been checking the website daily to see what grade I would get. I got a D on the midterm so I was VERY concerned. I ended up getting a C in the class! For most, that would be a disappointment... but not for me! That is a average, PASSING grade and ill take it!! :) Hmmm lets see what else..... Oh ya... I got Sugar, my kitten a leash... that was an experience LOL. She did pretty good, but ummm... leashes are for dogs... cats dont really go for walks to well. I drug her around most of the time but she did enjoy being outside exploring. Ill attach a few pics. And last but not least, yesterday we decided to go to dumont for the day... we had a blast. I dont have a quad but my brother has taught me to ride his. He took me to "little dumont" which is more my pace. I dont really do too well beings sideways, so I just like the little hills. The quad was having a problem, and everytime it stalled you had to take the seat off and restart it that way. Well, I stall ALOT... so I was forever getting off the bike... dragging it down a hill and restarting it. I think everytime little John came to find me I needed help. It just wasnt my day. I got myself so frustrated that at one point I just let this huge scream out. It was annoying. So I flagged my sister in law down and she rode the bike back to camp, and I rode in the truck LOL.... anyways... It was still fun. I always love going out there. It was beautiful... and I think that's it for now... Im off to clean my house! :)

This is what I call and OLD MAID!

Would-be bride, 107, seeks her first husband
Too afraid to wed when young, Chinese woman fears she's a 'burden' to kin

BEIJING - A 107-year-old Chinese woman who was afraid to marry when she was young has decided to look for her first husband and hopes to find a fellow centenarian so they will have something to talk about, a Chinese paper reported.
Wang Guiying is worried she is becoming a burden to her aging nieces and nephews since breaking her leg when she was 102 and had to stop doing chores like washing her clothes.
"I'm already 107 and I still haven't got married," the Chongqing Commercial Times quoted her saying. "What will happen if I don't hurry up and find a husband?"

Born in southern Guizhou province the child of a salt merchant, Wang grew up watching her uncles and other men scold and beat their wives and often found her aunt crying in the woodshed after an attack, the paper said.
"All the married people around there lived like that. Getting married was too frightening," she said of an era when Chinese women had few rights and low social standing.
Many also had their feet bound in an excruciating process aimed at making them look more dainty and marriageable.
Worried about becoming a 'burden' After Wang's father, mother and older sister died, she still shied away from marriage. Instead she moved to the countryside and survived as a farmer until she was 74 years old and no longer strong enough to work in the fields, the report said.
Her nephew in the booming city of Chongqing then took Wang in, but she is worried he and her other nephews and nieces are too old to take care of her now even the youngest is 60.
"My nephews and nieces are getting older and their children are already tied up with their own families and I am becoming more and more of a burden," she said.
Local officials have said they are happy to help Wang search for a 100-year old groom, and suggested her family get in touch with old people's homes to find candidates, the paper said.

WOW! This article makes me feel like a spring chicken! I feel like an old maid sometimes but yikes, this lady is an old maid if I have ever seen it! I sure hope she finds a husband. Wouldn't that be the cutest thing in the world if she got married for the 1st time at 107?

Jack's Birthday Party

I know I posted a blog a few days ago that it was Jack's birthday. Well, The Lord answers prayers and it worked out for us to see him on Saturday and have a little impromptu celebration for his first birthday! I haven't been feeling good this weekend at all but I wouldn't have missed yesterday for the world. He was so cute with his little cake, and its amazing how much he is walking and growing up! Last night when it was time for us to leave we couldn't find my keys, and we looked everywhere( 4 times) lol... there were nowhere to be found! At ten or so my dad decided that he was going to just drive up to the high desert and bring us the keys because otherwise we were going to be stuck. As you can imagine he wasn't too happy about that LOL. Even now, I have no idea where my keys are and its driving me nuts! I laid in bed last night and I couldn't fall asleep because I was just thinking about all the places they could possibly be. Anyways, ill keep you posted on the case of the missing keys, but meanwhile enjoy these pics of little Jack's 1st birthday party :)

Happy Birthday Jack Boggs!

My favorite little guy, Jack Boggs turned one year old yesterday! I know he is much too young to read this blog but I wanted to type up a little message to him because he is heavy on my mind today. I did not get to see him yesterday, but I will be doing everything in my power to see him this weekend because I have to give him a big kiss for his birthday. Jack was born January 7th, 2008 to John Boggs and Jamie Jacoban. He came into my life at a pretty dark time, and I looked forward to keeping him for days at a time because he brought some light into my life. This little boy is pretty special. I don't think that I have ever seen him without a smile on his face. He is the happiest baby I have ever seen, and his smiles can just light up a room. I am not even his mother, but having him in my life has made me want to be a better person. How can a little soul change someones life by just being in it? I don't understand it all, but God sent Jack to the Boggs family, and I am so thankful! I pray that Jack will be raised up to be a productive, respectable young man who loves the Lord. I pray every single day that the Lord would put a whole army of angels around him to protect him every moment of his life. I want God to have his way in Jack's life, and I pray that daily as well. Your Auntie loves you Jack Earl Boggs... and don't ever forget it!

Guess who is pregnant?? (and NO, it's not me LOL)

Kristy Rowell (Clark) is my bestyiest friend in the whole wide world, and we have the privilege to work together too. The last few months she keeps telling me, Jenn, I think I'm pregnant. I always tell her... Lets wait a few more days LOL because she thinks it a lil early at times LOL. Last week she told me that she thought she was pregnant and I didn't think much of it because she tells me this every month! I had to work in LA last Tuesday and she called me as I was driving home and she said, Jenn, I bought some pregnancy tests. I said, Oh really?? and then I told her that I thought you were supposed to wait until the morning to take a pregnancy test and she said she was going to read the paperwork. She called me back like 30 minutes later and said, Jenn, where are you? And I said Oh... still driving... :( She said, ummm... We have a little situation.... and I said, oh brother, now what LOL... she said, I think I'm pregnant. I was like... WHAT?? DID YOU TAKE THE TEST? She said YES! I took the test, but there was only one line, so Jeffrey threw it away. Then he read the paperwork and it said that sometimes it takes a little while for the second line to show up. He went to the trash and got it out, and sure enough there was two lines!! She said, Jeff just sent a pic of the test to your phone, tell me what you think LOL... I looked at it and said, Oh my word, you are pregnant Kristy! She was like, are you sure? ( like I'm the doctor) and then I said, I'M COMING OVER! By the time I got over there she had taken another test and it was positive too! When I walked in the door, Jeffrey said Jenn, we have one more test... you have to pee on the stick... LOL I started cracking up, but then I thought, hey I KNOW I'm not pregnant, so that's a good idea because then we can compare them.... So I did my best friend duty and took a pregnancy test... and it looked way different than hers... she went to the doc the next day and it was confirmed. She is pregnant! We are all so excited for them. They are going to be incredible parents, and I cant wait to meet my little niece or nephew :) I love you Kristy and Jeff :)

Happy New Year!

Well... I haven't blogged in several days, so I thought it was about time. I'm sitting here on my couch taking a break from "un-decorating" my house. I was going to wait for my dad or brother to take my tree out for me, but i couldn't wait a second longer.( this is one of the many days that I thought, wow I could sure use a husband right about now LOL) Now I'm dreading vacuuming up all those crispy needles. The last few days have been really nice. We had a very inspirational and encouraging New Year's Eve Service, and I'm such a party animal that I was in my bed at 11:45 lol. That's sad! I woke up the next morning remembering that I made a vow to myself to start my diet back up. I lost 60 pounds a few years ago, and umm... its sneaking back up on me... and I am not ok with that! So.... this prompted me to think of a few other things I would like to work on this year. Call it a New Year's resolution if you want... but here are a few things I want to see happen this year:
1. I am going to lose 50 pounds before my 31st birthday in September ( maybe more if I get super inspired)
2. I am going to be a better student... like studying, and not procrastinating LOL
3. I am going to pray more, God knows I need it!
4. I am going to pay off my credit cards! I don't have tons of debt, but i used to have NONE, so that's kinda sad
5.This last one is more of a prayer request than a New Years resolution, but I would love to meet my husband this year... I pray that the Lord would renew lost faith this year regarding this area of my life and help me to believe that there may be ONE good(SINGLE) man left .

And that's about it lol... I am going to post another blog, but it deserves a blog all to itself.... Happy New Year everyone... may you stick with your resolutions :)
