Time for a [penny] smashing good time!!

Sunday, December 4, 2011


A day late and a dollar short. I know, I know. But still:
We went up to the valley (my favorite place on earth!!) and stayed with family.  We played Quirkle

Mama and baby

We shot guns:
 Ladies and gentlemen, my mother has a gun. And she knows how to use it!
But it's still scary
I found a new hobby: shooting paper plates.  It was my first time ever shooting anything, and I hit my mark 10 out of 10 times. Yay me. Give me a gun and call me a gangsta'!
If you'll notice...I had two shots right above his head.  So I won't shoot you in the head. I'll just scalp ya.
Pies to feed 56!

A meal fit for a queen...on a diet.
 This was the best Thanksgiving I could have asked for! In the past my sisters/cousins and I would go over to the grandparent's house and have a big breakfast and spend the whole day over there.  Seeing as how this is our first Thanksgiving without them, I don't think we could have spent it in a better place! Thank you Valley family!!!

Is that a winter princess?!?

No. It's just this fantastic hat I won! It has furry ears.

Get Your Socks Ready, Cuz I'm About to Knock Them Off!

I just spent the better part of a half hour creating this gem.

I have had this blog for a long time and I don't think I ever really introduced myself so I figured now was as good a time as any.  Here we go.
I am Jenna.  I have 4 sisters, a brother-in-law (but I just consider him a brother), a nephew (I shall call him Squishy and he shall be my Squishy), a mother, a father, some friends, no pets.
I live in the US of A.  I love the US of A, I pretty much pledged allegiance to it.
I work two jobs, go to one school.
I believe in working hard and playing hard.
I have an affinity for cute things. Ask anyone that really knows me. I google cute baby animals.
I like to think I am crafty but there isn't much truth to that thought.
I am not messy. I am cluttery.
I love frozen yogurt. A lot. I also love: food in general.
Interesting facts: I have been to Ghana and London.  Love and plan on going back to both.  Another interesting fact: One time I wondered if I could perfectly time taking a picture of myself sneezing. I did. It makes me laugh so hard I cry. But I will NOT share that photo on this blog. Find me and I will show you.
Things I like to do: photography, paint things (anything), read, organize, apply make up, bake (oh how I love to bake!), play with nephew, listen to music, play with friends, sing
Things I wish for: the ability to sew, endless money, stronger self-control, an Aston Martin (any one will do), a Kitchen Aid, longer hair (ridiculous, right?)
What I have to offer: I am really nice. I will let you play with my hair.  I will tell you when there is something in your teeth. I will let you vent to me.  My car's heater heats up like nobody's business.  I make a mean cookie. I have a great memory, you will think I hang on your every word (and I do of course).
My drawbacks: I am sarcastic (probably to a fault).  Sometimes I get tunnel vision when I have lost something or am frustrated about something, just ask Lys about finding car keys Sunday morning. I don't really handle raw meat. Gross. I go gaga for trendy colors and buy everything in that color. I have: at least 10 articles of clothing that coral/rose color. I have a great memory, you will think I am a creep.  I will remember your cousin's bff's cute brother's name. Then I will meet him in real life and pretend to know nothing about him. Creepy? I think so.
What I listen to: everything. But Sara Bareilles' CD Kaleidoscope Heart is the best ever.  Buy it! I like Adele, Akon, Blue October, Brooke Fraser, David Guetta, Phil Collins, the Josh's Groban, Gracin, and Turner, Justin Bieber, Norah Jones, and Lifehouse to name a few.
Any questions?

My posts have been rather dull lately and I apologize.  Unfortunately, I have yet another lack-luster post for you now. Enjoy if you can.
We went to Cornbelly's (the local corn maze). It's just not the same when one of you can see over the corn!

October Part 2

We are over halfway through October...and my nerves are shot.  Jk...but really, nothing has scared me quite like The Grudge so that is good news.
However, I literally screamed during Halloween.  I was utterly humiliated.
Not so creepy.
I requested that this one make the list so I could have a reprieve of super scary.  Plus also: who doesn't love Jurassic Park?
Prom Night: not too shabby.  The Eye: strange concept. 
Halloween: I screamed.  You probably know the part. Wait Until Dark: a CLASSIC!
Disturbia: good one! When a Stranger Calls: glad I don't babysit much anymore
And that is not the end of it...just you wait!

Stevenson/Hays Reception

In a last minute frenzy, I ended up photographing this reception.  Loved the colors! Also: yogurt parfait bar? Genius! Congrats to the happy couple!

Friday, October 7, 2011


It is currently the month of October.  To me that means pretty colors, fantastic weather, birthday celebrations, and fall break.  To others it means: scary movies.  Somehow I have been sucked into the "others" ideas.  A good half of any given scary movie is spent with my head under the blanket with only one eye barely peeking out enough to get the gist of what is going on. These are my predictions for the month of October:
1. My blood pressure will increase
2. My sleep quality (and amount) will decrease
3. My "scare factor" will considerably increase
       Sidenote: I have already seen this one take place.  Today I was walking on campus when a friend snuck up behind me and yelled BOO! I almost punched him.  I'd keep a safe distance from me if I were you.
4. My nervous habits will become more pronounced
5. My ability to be alone in my house will vanish
6. Walking to my car in the dark will become an almost unconquerable feat
7. Zombies/ghosts/crazy people/anything remotely scary will take over the world
8. I will spend an abnormal amount of time thinking about how to escape any given room start of the month of happiness/misery (depending on which side you are on), we have watched:
The Grudge. Scariest movie I have seen to date.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Don't chainsaws make such a sweet noise?
NOT scary.  But interesting.
The good news in all of this? November is musical month.  Sound of Music and 7 Brides for 7 Brothers here I come!!

I Have a Disease

It is an illness. And don't fool yourself into thinking these are all I have.

Make Over!!

Please excuse the lighting in my room. It is awful.
