Wisdom Teeth

Tuesday I was lucky enough to get my wisdom teeth taken out! For the past year they had been bothering me so it was finally time to break down and do it. Plus, I did not want them bothering me while in London so I got it over with! It was not that bad but the anesthesia made me a little weepy so at random times I would just start crying. I also had a nice fat bottom lip and looked pretty rough! It was also hard to drink my soup through the fat lip and the fact that my whole face was numb still! It was quite a fun day, but I am thankful for my family's help with all of this! And of course my BFF Beth that stopped by! Today is the second day so now I am eating semi-solid foods so that is good! I also needed to put ice on my face to stop the swelling and believe it or not it is quite hard to put ice packs on both cheeks so I tied two of Joe's baseball socks together and put the ice packs in between my face and the socks! I thought this was quite inventive! Anyway so that is an update with me! Everything is going well, I am a little sore and swollen but everything else is pretty much fine!

Asian Baby Reunion

This weekend was spent with the other girls that came from China with Olivia! They were all adopted at the same time and each year they get together and catch up! Each year a different family hosts the reunion and this year it was Charlotte and Juliet's turn in Long Beach, CA! All of our families think it's important for the girls to keep close with each other and know that they are not alone! It was so fun to see the girls get together and play and have so much fun! They have all grown up so much in the last five years! I really think adoption is such a great thing and I am so thankful for my two Chinese siblings- I am really pushing mom to go back to China, and once I turn 30 you better believe I am heading to China to adopt!!! I love seeing how unique each girl is and yet they are all tied together! It was a great weekend and I can't wait till the next reunion! Next year it will be in Jacksonville, Fl.

Family Vacation!

So Tuesday I packed up my suitcase and my family and me went out to California for Olivia's reunion with the girls from her orphanage group! So far it has been pretty fun, other than Barry refusing to take highways and getting lost almost every time we get into the car! Wednesday we went to Knotsberry Farm (one of Mom's childhood memories) - it was pretty fun! At Knotsberry I found out that I no longer can handle roller coasters and had to sit out on a lot of the fun! Yesterday, we went to Disneyland! YAY it was so much fun! My old roommate met up with us and it was a blast! Today, we met up with all the girls from the orphange! All the girls have gotten so big and cute!!! I am looking foward to spending the next few days with them! Pictures to come!!!

Happy Birthday America!

Please enjoy my Uncle Sam hat- thanks to my wonderful Abuela!

For this 4th of July, I spent the day with my sister and her little family making cake balls! It was a long process, but they turned out GREAT and everyone loved them! We even made them patriotic with red, white, and blue! We then went to the pool for a bit and had a cookout at my Abuela and Papa's! We watched fireworks at Roswell High School (Beth joined us then)! The kids loved the fireworks and it was such a nice night! I loved being able to spend the day with my family and just relax! I love how on the 4th everything is red, white, and blue and everyone is so patriotic! I think everyday people should care this much about our country!

My Top 10 Hottest Guys in Hollywood!

So I was reading People's '45 Sexy Guys We Love' and I decieded I wanted to make a list of who my top ten were!

1. COLIN FIRTH- He is just so attractive to me and I really think if I ran into him on the streets of London he would be down to Earth. I loved him in 'Pride and Prejudice', 'Bridget Jones', 'Love Actually', and 'Mamma Mia'! So cute, plus I love the accent!

2. CHRISTAIN BALE- I have loved him ever since I was in the 6th grade and my sister had me watch Newsies! Just so hot... I used to wish we could meet and we could sing 'I'm the King of New York' together! And of course he has a great accent!

3. RYAN REYNOLDS- What a cuttie. I never really thought about him until I saw 'Andventureland' and then 'Proposal', but he was so good in both. And of course super attractive! Plus, his facial expressions are so funny, I really think he is very talented!

4. ROBERT PATTINSON- I don't think I would be considered a true 'Twilight' fan if I did not have this guy on my list! Although, I do have to say I thought he was cute in 'Harry Potter'! This is another person I would love to run into on the busy streets of London! What can I say I love accents!

5. ZAC EFFRON- He was cute in 'High School Musical', but it was in '17 Again' that I really felt he should be put on the list! So might think he looks a little too young, but no worries he is my age!
6. BRADLEY COOPER- I thought he looked his best in 'The Hangover'. But I also think is is such a good dresser! He seems like he is a real funny guy!

7. LIAM NEESON- Again here is a guy with a great accent. So he might be a tad older than me, but I still think he should be on my list! In 'Love Actually' his character's role was my favorite!

8. JOHNNY DEPP- I think I like him so much because his look is so different and because his acting is so great and he really puts himself into his roles. Even when he is Mr. Wonka, I still think he looks good!

9. CHACE CRAWFORD- I started watching 'Gossip Girl' this year and it was not long till I thought Nate was so cute! He was People's Hottest Bachelor and I think he should be on this list. He is cute and seems done to Earth!
10. JOHN KRASINSKI- I think he is so cute. He does such a great job in 'The Office' and I think he looks just so really and down to Earth. I would like to sell some paper with him!
So that's my list- I hope everyone enjoys!
