Day 6: A Person I'd Love to Change Places With for a Day

I'm going to start teaching a Kaplan LSAT class tomorrow, so life is about to get a lot more hectic. I wanted to get in another blog post before the craziness begins!

DAY 06: A PICTURE OF A PERSON YOU'D LOVE TO CHANGE PLACES WITH FOR A DAY


I know I keep saying these challenges are difficult. I guess that's why they're called challenges. Well, today's challenge was no exception.

First, I'd like to say I love my life. I love my husband, my family, my friends, my dog, etc. I realize that I am extremely blessed to even have the basic necessities of life that many people in this world do not have. I know I have been placed on this planet for a reason. For these reasons, I would normally say that I wouldn't switch places with anyone.

With that being said, what fun would this blog post be if that was my final answer? None at all! So here goes:

This is Tricia Huffman. She is Jason Mraz's joyologist. Joy-whatagist?! Go here to find out what that is. Basically, her job is to make people on Jason Mraz's tour happy. What better job is there?! If you know me, you know I LOVE music and am passionate about certain artists. Growing up, I've always thought it would be fun/interesting to accompany my favorite music artists on tour (or at least meet them backstage!), so for a day, this would certainly fulfill that dream.

Day 5: A Picture of One of Your Favorite Memories

Woops! It's been a little while since I've written a blog post. Sorry about that; life has been hectic.

DAY 05: A PICTURE OF ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE MEMORIES


It was hard to choose just one photo, so here we go:

This is a picture of me and some high school buds on a bus after Riverfest. It's a music & arts festival and, this particular year, it's name was certainly fitting. It started raining and there was really nowhere to take shelter. So we got SOAKED in the rain before we found shelter on the bus. Then, of course, I decided "Let's take a picture!" This is why all my pictures are so flattering.




This is me and some college friends on Halloween of 2003. Jessica (left) and I (center) dressed up as rock stars and Diana (right) was a pink lady. However, our outfits were quite unfortunately misunderstood by one lady. She thought we were "street walkers"! No way, Jose! Looking back, I can understand more why she thought that. However, in my defense, I had a Britney Spears'-esque microphone headset and everything, so it was certainly not my intention to dress up as a "street walker." Eek!


Again with the unflattering pictures! I'm starting to think this is just the way I look. No no, that's just crazy talk! I truthfully did have much better pictures of the 3 of us, but this blog post is not about your best pictures, but pictures of your favorite memories. This is me (left), Jessica (middle), and Nastassja (right) on the bus going to/from the Independence Bowl. We were all piccolos in the band and, as you can tell, that trip was fun but tiring!




Now, THAT'S better! Wow, my hair was long then. I kind of miss that now. This is my and my awesome friend, Lydia at a Jason Mraz concert in September 2010 in Searcy, AR. Wow, what an amazing concert! It made Lydia a true fan too and just cemented my fan-dom. Yes, I just made up a word. I can do that, because this is my blog!

Day 4: My Favorite Day

Wow, I'm on a roll with this blogging thing (hopefully that didn't jinx me)! Today's challenge was not so tough!

DAY 04: A PICTURE OF YOUR FAVORITE DAY



My wedding day! That was an amazing day, though a bit of a blur. It went by so quickly. It was a blast though. It was amazing to have our family and friends there to share such a special day with us. Not to mention, to celebrate with us! Maybe it's just me, but I like to think that our reception ROCKED! I had so much fun dancing, laughing and seeing all of our loved ones. I couldn't just have one picture though. Here are some more special moments from that day:












We danced up a storm!












Dustin and I throwing the garter and bouquet. I think it's interesting how the girls all have their hands up and the guys basically have their hands in their pockets. Ha!



If you were there on my wedding day, what was your favorite part? If you weren't there, what is your favorite thing about weddings?

Day 3: My Favorite TV Show

Wow, this was a tough one!

DAY 03: A PICTURE OF THE CAST FROM YOUR FAVORITE TV SHOW


Believe it or not, this was one of the more difficult challenges so far (true, ...it's only my third)! I love watching tv shows, though I don't have cable now, so I don't do it as consistently as I used to. We got rid of cable so we would get out more and (hopefully) do more productive things with my time. I surprisingly don't miss cable too much. We have over-the-air channels, which includes most of the channels I would be watching anyway. I sometimes miss TLC, Discovery Channel and Lifetime, but I can watch most shows I want to online. The main thing I do miss is DVR. I loved not having to watch commercials!

Anyway, I ended up choosing Parks & Recreation as my favorite tv show. For a LONG time, I would've said The Office, but I feel like the first seasons were a lot better and the more recent seasons are hit-or-miss. I'm still a fan though! I love Parks & Recreation though. It has a great cast of characters. I think my favorite character might be Tom Haverford.

Here are the runners-up in no particular order & a little commentary on each.

(1) Glee - Rachel Berry, Puck. Admittedly, I don't agree with all the messages this show sends, but I've always been a fan of musicals, so I just love the music!
(2) Modern Family - Phil is HILARIOUS! In my opinion, he makes the show.
(3) The Middle - This is a great show, because it is SO true. It's just a regular, though quirky, family in the middle of the country living a regular life, but so so funny.
(4) The Office - Kelly Kapoor is HILARIOUS. She doesn't get a lot of lines, but I love when she does!
(5) Grey's Anatomy - I really really miss Izzie & O'Malley. I also liked Dr. Burke and his relationship with Christina (though he made poor choices that ended in his being fired). I don't think the show is the same without those characters. My fave character now is Miranda Bailey; I also like Chief Webber a lot. Anyone notice that Meredith has been wearing a lot less makeup lately? I saw an old episode the other day and noticed a big difference. I hope Lexie and Mark get back together. And I hope Callie's baby makes it.
(6) Private Practice - I didn't think I would like this show, because I didn't like Addison's character on Grey's, but they really made you like her once you got to know her character better. I miss Dell and I used to like the idea of Addison and Pete, but I have gotten over that. I am, however, mad at Sam for kissing Naomi. Tssk tssk, Sam.
(7) Army Wives - love this show, but I hate seeing characters you know well die, so it's a love-hate relationship.
(8) Drop Dead Diva - This is a GREAT show! I think you need to watch it from the very beginning to really get the concept, but it doesn't start back until June so you have a while to catch up!

Feel free to comment with your thoughts/your favorites too!!!

Day 2: Someone I Used to be Close With

Continuing with the 30-day photo challenge, I go way back!

DAY 02: A PICTURE OF YOU AND SOMEONE YOU USED TO BE CLOSE WITH


This picture was taken by my mom at my dance recital at UALR. I was 12 years old. No, I didn't normally wear that much makeup. And who knows why my mom let me wear those jeans?! Not the most flattering picture by any means.

However, it does bring back great memories. The little girl on the left is my little sister, Christa. She's 19 years old now and is a student at the University of Arkansas. She's grown into a beautiful young lady. We've always been close and I treasure my relationship with her. Here's a current picture of her:


The girl in the middle is Sisi "Linda" Shen. She's the one I used to be close with. Have you ever had one of those people you just automatically clicked with? Who you had a lot in common with? Who you felt like you could completely be your crazy self around? This is one of the few people I've ever felt like that around. She was my absolute best friend in junior high (7th-9th grade). The first week of junior high, we realized we had almost all the same classes. We decided that meant we should be friends.

We shared our love of Backstreet Boys and, of course, Leonardo DiCaprio and Titanic. She and her family moved to Minnesota before high school started. That was really a difficult time for me. To start out high school can already be such a difficult time to begin with; but to do it without my best friend was rough, for sure! Thankfully, I made some other wonderful friends in high school, who I'm sure I'll write about in future blogs!

But Sisi and I have somehow managed to keep in touch over all these years. Other than my siblings/family members, she is my oldest friend (the one I've kept in touch with the longest). Granted, we don't talk every day or even close to that. But when we do talk, we catch up and it's like we start right where we left off! She came to my wedding and I'm so happy she did. It wouldn't have been the same without her. Here's a picture of us from my rehearsal dinner:


Although Sisi has always looked good, I'd say we both outgrew whatever awkward stage we were in in the previous junior high pic, wouldn't you? I hope we continue to stay in touch as we grow older and begin our families.

If you have a friend like Sisi in your life, my advice is to be intentional to keep up with them and maintain that friendship, even if you can only talk every once in a while. These friendships are priceless and can never be replaced.

DAY 01: A PICTURE OF YOURSELF WITH FIFTEEN FACTS



1. I took dance (jazz, ballet, tap, pointe, etc.) for 14 years and I really really miss it! I haven't looked extremely hard but don't know of any places where I live that give adult classes. I would love to start that up again, though I don't think I'd love to see myself in a leotard and tights again!

2. I used to be pretty obsessed with the Backstreet Boys (KTBSPA = Keep The BackStreet Pride Alive!). In fact, I got my high school friends to dress up like them and take a picture for a contest. I was Nick.

3. I don't like shopping. I know, I'm a weird girl. I think it's a combination of not wanting to spend money and not wanting to try on clothes just to discover I wear a size (or more) larger now!

4. I have 5 brothers and sisters. 3 of them are half-siblings, but I love them just as much as if they're whole siblings. We are 3 girls and 3 boys, just like the Brady Bunch!

5. I play the flute (and piccolo). I played it from junior high school through college, but I actually have only picked it up a couple of times since I graduated undergrad about 5 years ago! I would love to find a group to play with... a community orchestra or something, but haven't spent much time looking into that either.

6. This won't be a big surprise to those close to me, but I'm just a tad baby crazy right now. I have been for several years, actually, but I've been in law school and starting out in "the real world" during that time.

7. I'm an attorney. I graduated law school in 2009 and started my own law firm. It's a general practice firm. We have a website and a facebook page.

8. My husband (whom I love) is an entrepreneur. He was a computer science major and has done everything from programming, to web development, to IT, to managerial/company leadership roles. He is very interested in business, technology, venture capital and trends in these areas. I'm very proud of him!

9. I LOVE food! Maybe too much. I am in a constant battle of trying to eat healthy/work out and indulging. I am most definitely a pizza connoisseur; I also love Artichoke Spinach pasta from Noodles, Bang Bang Shrimp from Bonefish Grill, and just anything that's deliciously good, but delectably bad for you!

10. I love cooking... if I have time. I don't like doing it if I'm extremely exhausted/in a rush, but I love trying out new recipes. They don't always turn out great, but every once in a while, we have a true winner! Maybe I'll blog about some of those recipes!

11. I have a Bucket List, but it seems like most of the things on there require money (sometimes, lots of it). I don't know that I'll get to all of it during my time here on this Earth, but I'd love to try! Maybe that'll be another blog post.

12. I am involved with The C.A.L.L. (Children of Arkansas Loved for a Lifetime). It's mission is "[t]
o educate, equip and encourage the Christian community to provide a future and a hope for the children in foster care." To learn more, go here.

13. I am a Words With Friends fanatic. Love it! Play me: LKWeber. No cheaters please! I play too many of those already. ; ) You know who you are... and you should be ashamed!

14. This also won't surprise those close to me. I ♥ Jason Mraz!!! I saw him in concert for the first time in the Spring of 2009 and was instantly hooked. He is amazing live; sounds better than in recordings, which is (sadly) such a rare thing nowadays! Here's a video I took at that first concert.

video

15. I love Jesus. I grew up going to church and gaining the "head knowledge" of the Bible, but did not have the "heart knowledge" of knowing Christ and allowing him to truly change me and the way I lived my life. I accepted Christ as my Savior at age 18 and His grace and love has forever changed me.
