Day 2

"the meaning of your blog name"

let's see, it's super simple- my name! :) Tay Clark. But you know, it's perfect because i am a very simple person and a plain jane type of girl. And then i have the saying "Tay Tay's Day to Day" at the top of my page because i wanted this blog to be about my day to day life! {{but i have been a horrible blogger, and hope to get back in the swing of things}}

Memorial Day

First of all let me start off by saying that i am SO thankful to live in our wonderful country and have the freedoms that we have. I am so grateful for men and women who are willing to fight and defend for our country. And i think we often times forget about the past heros who sacrificed so much for us...without them our country would not be the same! We had a lesson yesterday at church by our bishop and it was about our country and how blessed we it just kind of reminded me and made me think! :o) So thank you to those who have served and continue to serve for me and my country!!

and on to the festivities...

My family didn't have anything spectacular planned, but it still turned out to be fun! (i am just happy that i got 4 days off of was a nice break :o) ) Lauren had heard about a Strawberry festival near we thought it would be fun to go and see what it was like. i mean i LOVE strawberries :o) Let's just say it wasn't anything great at was actually quite a joke. well i guess to what we expected it to be. it was just more like a carnival with a few booths of strawberry desserts and what not. But it was still fun just walking around and hanging out with eachother...and better than just staying home! we also stopped by this little park across the street and watched the ducks int he pond...and we discovered lots and lots of turtles! they all just had their heads popping was kinda cute :o) and then after that we had to stop by a 7-eleven because we kept telling matti we would get a slurpee after since she didn't get to go on any of the rides. hehe. and i discovered a crystal light slurpee that was good! woohoo...lower points on WW :o)

The whole gang...

i wanted a picture with matti, but she didn't want this will have to do! haha.
jonni, the parpy and me! :o)

Matti and 'Me' (that's what matti calls jonni haha)

i LOVE this picture! jonni just makes me so happy :o) i am going to miss her so stinkin' much!!

so after the festival we went home and had a BBQ. yummy, like always! :P and then just chatted and spent time together. Family time is always fun!!!

Tea Party

Saturday, May 29th my ward had a Relief Society 'herbal tea party'! haha, yes we had to say herbal :o) and it was SO MUCH FUN! We had it at Sister Laidlaw's house (who is the second counselors wife) and let me tell you...her back yard is gorgeous! and it was just a gorgeous day in general..not too hot and not too cold, just perfect weather. Sister Laidlaw and the relief society presidency spent alot of time and preperation making it look wonderful! There were several different herbal teas to try (which i found out i am not too fond of tea, but still fun to try) and lots of little yummy finger foods. Then they shared how tea party's started and a cute poem. And then all of us girls just chatted away for several hours. It was such a fun Saturday afternoon activity!! :o)

*and i am sad that i didn't take more pictures...i am trying to get some emailed to me, so if i get them i will add them!

Wednesday, May 26, 2010 my last post really dated march 14th? umm yes...yes it is! haha. my seester ally commented and told me that i was well over due for a new post :o) and i'd have to agree. for some reason i am addicted to the blogging world and have a huge google reader and love reading other peoples posts', but never seem to get around to doing my own...oh well!

So for a brief recap of my life. i was planning on going and moving back to utah and living with my bestie natalie and seester ally, but now they will both not be up there so i figured why move and try to find a new salon to work at and build a whole new clientele, when i am actually doing pretty well here in claremont at 'forte'. quite a few people are actually coming back and requesting! woohoo. and you know i really did not like my singles ward. but i figured out that it was pretty much just because of me and my attitude. i made a promise to myself that i would have a more positive attitute and actually try and attend activities to meet people...and that i have been doing! :o) i am really liking it and meeting new people. yay! actually one of the activities that i went to was 'crochet night'. oh my is SO fun!! but you should have seen me the first night...i was a-w-f-u-l! haha. so i went home and just kept youtubing different videos to practice all the stitches...and now i can do it! and it is addicting to say the least. jonni has gotten really into it as well and so we have fun plannign new projects together. i will have to post pictures of the stuff i end up making :o) ALSO along with all this church stuff i got a new calling in my ward. i am now the fourth sunday relief society teacher. yikes! i was so nervous and gave my first lesson last sunday. it went ok...i am just hoping next time my nerves don't get the best of me!

another HUGE thing that happened was yesterday i started Weight Watcher's (yes it is my fourth time haha!) but i think i am going to post all my progress with WW on my other blog which is: so make sure to check that every so often too! :o)

so please keep reminding me to post if i don't do it often. SERIOUSLY! keep commenting me on facebook or on here. atleast once a week if i haven't posted anything yet haha. thanks.

love you all!! hope you are all doing wonderful! :o)

I got 2 beautiful is 4 inertwined hearts that ally gave to all 4 of us represents each of us and our love...AWW! haha. and the other was from marmy and parpy and it was 3 hair charms on a pretty chain (blow dryer, scissors and a comb) So i love them and wear them both often!! and i also got Gossip Girl season 1 and 2 dvd's...yes i am addicted! drama, but i love it! haha. and then just other little, cute stuff!

[what a shocker!] haha. but i am still trying to be better and improve myself! :o) But me and my family just had our usual New Year's night (since not going to the Rose Parade the last few years) ...playing games, lots of eating (ally's quote of the night: "eat, drink, and be merry...for tomorrow me DIET!" hahaha. that we did!! l0l) laughing and going out side at midnight, having a countdown, throwing confetti in the air, screaming, banging pots and pans (yes, we still use pots and pans haha) and taking lots of pictures!! :o)

Cheers to a New Year... [our virgin pina coladas]

2 0 1 0 ...

and BIG NEWS is that seester (ally) got a job up in Utah teaching special she left us! *tear* it all happened within a few weeks. Ally and i spent every day together and worked close to eachother so we would eat lunch together often. So i miss my best friend! (but hopefully next fall i will be up in utah living with her and natalie...another post to come haha)


This is the month i was seriously contemplating working on a cruise ship doing hair. I was not very happy with my current job working at Forte Salon...i felt like i was building any clientele and my life was kinda just blah and boring. So i wanted to have some fun and travel! i STILL really wish i could go to a different country and either live there for a while or just travel lots :o) but anyways...i heard lots of stories of how they treat you like crap doing hair on the cuise line and you really dont get paid lots for the hours you put in. i don't know. i kinda just gave up on that idea haha.

I also gave my little niece her first official hair cut! [when she was a few months old i evened out the fuzzy's on the back of her head] it was just looking too mullety so we needed to take a little off the ends. Her mommy was smart and brought a portable dvd player to watch "pooh" and keep her occupied. She actually did REALLY well and loved the whole experience. She is totally a girly girl! (to read the full story, click here)

And then there was Valentine's Day! i personally like Valentine's Day...and i don't have someone "special" to spend it with. To me it's just one day to really show your love and appreciation to those you love and care about. why not? can and should do that every day...but you can go above and beyond and just have fun!! :o) So for our Valentine's day (we actually celebrated on saturday) the Hunter's (my brother in law's sister and family) were down visiting so we all had dinner at my parents house. we had spaghetti with sausage, garlic bread, salad, and after we made chocolate covered strawberries! It was delish! Then, we watched "Love Happens." So it was a fun night! :o)


it's still i might start doing seperate posts! :o)
