caro's first time

last night my sister ate her first in-n-out burger ever. a new one opened down the street from our house, so after institute ben took us to eat a yummy burger.

here she is waiting for our food:

i know she is going to hate me for posting this picture but it just makes me laugh.

i get bored easily

i was trying to take a picture of ben studying without him noticing. it's kinda hard to do when using the web camera on my computer. i could only turn the computer around so much before he thought something was up.

5 reasons why...

i liked dear john by nicholas sparks:

1. i bought the book with channing tatum on the cover, 'nuff said
2. i've read other nicholas sparks books so i wasn't surprised about the ending. don't worry i won't spoil it for you. he will spoil it for you as soon as you begin reading the book.
3. i was able to relate to savannah (the girl in the book) with ben being in the army and stuff.
4. it made me wish i lived near the beach, with all the surfing and raining and stuff.
5. it was a quick read.

yay! i finished my first book of 2010!

sister fun

my sister came over today to watch a movie, gilmore girls and our all time favorite veronica mars. we ate donuts, ice cream and a really yummy dinner. it was a really fun day.

she didn't want me to take a picture of her, so i put up the veronica mars cover
and when she wasn't paying attention, i took a picture of her pretty face

we love blockbuster

finally rented some movies we have been wanting to watch for awhile. we actually own pride and prejudice but it was on the floor when i took the picture and i realized it too late. i love watching movies with my ben. except he probably doesn't like to watch movies with me because i talk too much.

new year. first day.

i can't believe it is already 2010. 2009 was full of ups and downs. there are many things that i wish i could change, but the only thing i can do now is to look ahead and learn from my mistakes. i don't usually have new year's resolutions, and honestly hadn't really thought about it until today. life has been a little crazy these past couple of weeks, and today was the first day i actually had all to myself. here is the list of things i want to accomplish this year:

exercise every week
spend more time cooking
go to the beach with ben
eat healthier
read more books
convince ben to get a puppy {i already know the answer to this one but i will still try : ) }

ben and i didn't do anything special to celebrate the new year. we didn't actually think we would be awake for it. we are losers that way, but there was a burn notice marathon on and we stayed awake until a little past midnight. today we woke up late, watched the rose bowl with ben's friend andrew and watched terminator. they are now playing computer games and i'm watching vh1's most shocking moments in music. pretty exciting first day of the year!
