I love the cold weather and the cute coats.
I just love it.

Without fail they say I love you and just care for you.
Seriously I have never been happier with my friends in my life.
I love those boys and they know who they are.

this one for the cuhzin.

It's that time of the year again when I decide to write a random ass blog.

It only happens every so often and it's usually when something is annoying or exciting in my life.

BUT, this blog is for my cousin Tonya, because she has nothing better to do then read about my life cause she finds my life super exciting and interesting and maybe a little weird. ha

No, I'm kidding! I love her and she is like my sunday school teacher telling me to write in my journal, because it will come in handy in the future. :)

Well, seeing how I live a boring life and don't really have anything fun or exciting to write about...I'll blab for a bit!

So the Freeman/Short household invested in a new doggy! His name is CUBBIE and he is about 10 years old. We adopted him from the human society and he is the cutest nicest new little doggy addition we have had in a long time. It was Auzzy's birthday present, he doesnt turn 12 till December 10th, but, he absolutely loves him.

Right now I am planning my 22 birfday. Yep that's right ill be 22 freakin years old and turning into an old women! So, why not celebrate my last years of younghood by celebrating my birthday in a wonderful WARM place....HAWAII! Yes, that's right, my friends and I are planning a trip to Hawaii for my birthday and I can't hardly wait. Its gonna be off the heezy fo sheezy fo sho mayneeee! 12 or so days on a pimping island is what I call a damn good partayyy!
Also, Christmas is a love/hate holiday! I mean I LOVE getting presents and eating candy and goodies is presents is great too, but, I HATE HATE HATE trying to decide what to give people! I don't know what they like. I know what I like. I need idea's, so, if anyone knows any sweet present ideas let me know!
Oh and I need to take more peekchuressss so if you read this I need volunteer model peeps...
holla atcha GIRLLL!
peace out foolios

Wedding Crasher.

wedding. marriage.
The words I absolutely cant stand being brought up around me at the moment.
(that and the word moist...EW!!)
But, for some reason wedding and marriage has been all around me lately.
I don't know if it's a sign that I need to get married right now or if people just like to bug me with it.
I'll start with the weddings I have been to recently...
I have been to 2 weddings in the past 2 weeks and I have 1 more in a week or so.
That means sitting through another dumb typical mormon reception, which, I can't stand.
I mean when people can start telling exactly what's going to happen at the reception we have a serious problem...
The reception:
-a picture movie playing about 3 or 4 country songs that everyone always picks.
-either crescent roll sandwhichs or fruit you can dip in chocolate.
-quick dance between the couple making everyone stand there and watch.
-the couple sitting in line for like 3 hours greeting the neverending population of mormon friends.
-eating the nasty gross cake that is hard as a rock and hardly tastes like cake at all.
I'm just saying if I can call what exactly is going to happen in that 3 hours of time then why do I have to go anyways. I mean, I can congradulate them any time after their honeymoon and give them their gift on my own time without having to take time out of my life to sit there doing nothing exciting at all.
You can call me selfish. When it comes to mormon receptions I would rather throwup in my mouth and swallow it then half to go to another one. I think the only reason I continue to go to them is because I do like dressing up sometimes and maybe just maybe there will be a cute single boy there (but mormon receptions guest list, atleast in Utah, consist of married people or people about to get married or people who brought dates...NOONE EVER GOES ALONE except me.).
I don't wanna sound to down on my friends and family who have done mormon receptions in the past or who are planning one in the near future, I just know I will not be one to fall into that category.
More reason's why it's been in my life more...
So, I'm 21 I'll be 22 in February and in Utah years that's pretty old maybe even spinster status when it comes to not being married yet. I mean once you pass 19 either something is wrong with you or your being pressured to hurry and find someone to get married too.
My family for instants, I love them to death, but recently they have been letting me know that I am getting to that age where I should probably start looking in the direction of finding a mate, my other half. My whole family has never been like this in the 21 years of our knowing eachother. They have always said, "Your time will come, dont rush it, live life, blah blah blah." So, it's weird to me that they are now, not necessarily pushing, but encouraging me to start maybe looking in that direction.
Not only do I have my family saying this stuff, but I happened to go to a friends single's ward on BYU campus and realized that that's all they talk about at the wards. It was all about girls start inviting good RM's in your life cook them dinner and play some games. Guys, you need to stop being pimps and players and start looking for those ladies who are going to be your one and only. Pretty much they are saying, you people are getting older and you need to start acting like it.
Also, I find myself planning my wedding. With all this wedding talk it's hard not to think about what I'm gonna do for mine. Maybe it's because I have been to so many mormon receptions i want mine to be better and perfect and to make a perfect wedding it takes some time to plan it might as well get it started, UNLESS somehow without actually knowing I somehow know I'll be getting married sometime in the near future...
I take these as signs in letting me know I should probably start looking and getting ready for that marriage age, but I don't want too. I mean I wouldn't mind having a boyfriend, but I feel way to immature and to young to get married right now. I like to have fun and honestly I have only lived 21.5 years of my long life I still have a while before I need to get married and have a family. I mean think about how much life I have to live, I can wait. Not saying that if the so called "RIGHT GUY" comes along I wont get myself married, I'm just saying that I dont need to look for him. I'm gonna keep on playing and living life to its fullest and maybe that guy will come along eventually.
Right now, I think why I'm venting about marriage and wedding and all that jazz is because I'm sick of watching everyone get hitched and I'm still alone....even the younger kiddies are getting married.
I don't know if any of this makes sense to any of you, it makes sense to me in my head. All I know is I am very content with MY life, who's in it, and where I'm going.
I guess marriage comes when it come and I'll be as ready as I can be.

growing up.

Growing up is hard.

I would know. I have been out of high school for going on 4 years now, still live at home, and I play more then I make money.

I have recently decided that the only way im going to get anything done in life is if I get out of Utah and start over. GO TO COLLEGE. I need an education.

So, I have pretty much decided on 2 colleges in California. SADDLEBACK and VENTURA.

Both pretty good and both have photography programs.
Hmmm tough decisions. Either way I think I would enjoy it.

All I know is California better get ready!!

On a side note:
Today is Monday.

If your a girl and dont know what that means, we have a serious problem on our hands.


tonight at 7 is gonna be soooo amazing
BE THERE and favorite show..

My Life As I Know It.

Do you know when you get the urge to do something spectacular with your life?! Something that's gonna make you so happy, even when you're not quite sure what it is.
Well, today I had that feeling. That feeling to get out of my house and out in the world. I'm not sure what it means at the moment, but I'm going to start doing more of what I love and start working on a photography portfolio and traveling. Of course this means I will need more money which also means I need another job, but, I know this is what I want to do more then anything in the world right now and I have never been so sure on something in my entire life.
I heard a really great quote today that made me think (hey maybe that's why I got the urge to start doing something with my life). It stated....

"Take action or you'll miss your moment!"

I am not the typical person who usually gets feelings about something she reads or hears, but, for this strange reason this quote really hit me and hit me hard.
I want to do something with my life. I want to get out there and show people what I'm really capable of doing. I want people to know I'm not wasting my life away living at my mom's house still and hardly working (it's gonna change).
I have goals. I want to be known. I want to do something I love. I want to make tons of money and not have to worry about the small stuff. I want to eventually have a family, but be able to help support them and that wont happen without the one before. HA! I just know it needs to be done and soon. Life is short and time is going by way to quickly for my taste and I thought I was making the most out of it by hanging out and doing EVERYTHING I possibly could in a 24 hour period, but it's not all about the parties or what's playing in the movies this month, it's about being productive and having the best life you could possibly have.
Which, I am not saying my life so far hasn't been everything I have ever dreamed of. I'm just saying having a career, having money, having family and friends that stand by you in everything you do, and just knowing that you have a future and its going to be great no matter what, makes me happier then anything I could purchase at the mall or any must go to party of the year.

Tomorrow, I will start a new day and a new Ashley. I couldn't be happier...

FUEL tv.

Due to me being extremely bored lately since ALL of my friends have left me :(
(either on vacation or moved)
I have been watching A LOT of tv and tonight was no exception.

With my parentals getting directtv in the house, it has not just brought cable into my bedroom, but has also brought the BEST channel to my viewing. FUEL tv. I am all about sports and ESPN doesnt cut it for me! Dont get me wrong I love watching football, basketball, and most of all baseball, BUT you can only watch that channel for so long. Fuel tv on the otherhand has given me a chance to watch some of my favorite sports of all which are snowboarding and surfing.

Tonight I was just so happening to watch one of the MANY shows on this fabulous channel about surfing! It was all about the 2007 Vans Triple Crown of Surfing, which last year I was able to attend part of.

I was out there supporting my dad Russell Charles Short and his friends opening their surf shop in Haleiwa, Oahu, Hawaii called Bonzer Front, which by the way is right next to their famous North Shore Restaurant called Cafe Haleiwa (It's the best place to eat breakfast or lunch on the Norht Shore). Malcolm and Duncan Campbell are 2 super cool dudes that grew up with my dad in the surfing world. They began their long surfer bum lives in a small town in California! The Campbell Brothers weren't only surfing they were making history in the surfing industry too, by making surfboards. Making surfboards is what they love to do, not only for my dad and the rest of the old Bonzer crew, but for a lot of the pro's you see today like Taylor Knox, Mick Fanning, and Brad Gerlach just to name a few.

Anyways, as I was watching the show all of the sudden the footage that was taken from the grand opening of the surf shop's party came on. My brothers and I were unfortunantely not able to make it on the program, but I did see some familiar faces. Not only was Malcolm and Duncan on, but they had some old footage of my pops doing what he does best and riding the wet stuff and being a complete goober on camera. It was the weirdest thing EVER to see my old man on tv, super crazy!

Now let me just tell you a little about my dad. Back in the day he used to be a pro surfboarder riding bonzer boards and traveling the world. He is getting up there in the age, but you could never tell at first glance. He not only still looks like a 30 year old dude, but still surfs like one. He rips at surfing to this day and is in the water as much as possible! All I can say is I'm amazed and so proud.


Here is some footage of my daddy that I found on youtube

jessica paige baker.

Ashley: Miss Jessica Paige Baker the baby maker.

Jessica: I only practice.

I love this girl sooo much and miss her to death!

She Completes me!

November 25, 2005

Late one cold November night Ashlee Brown and I got a phone call from our buddy Kyle Clark telling us to come up to his house in Woodland Hills, UT (A small town on the mountain next to Elk Ridge which is where mi casa is). We went up there thinking nothing special, just another night on the town, but we were so wrong. Jessica Paige Baker was in the house. We were introduced to eachother and I was told that the night was special, special because it was my girl Jessica's birthday, the big 18. Jess and I started talking about life. She told me she was going to Spanish Fork High School and would be graduating that May. I realized that my brother Tyler was the same age as her and he had actually gone to a school in Spanish Fork in the past. I decided to ask Jess if she had known him and she did. Her exact words were "Oh my gosh, ya I know that kid I used to push him into lockers." That's when I knew we would be the best of friends.

Even though we have had our ups and downs and we drifted away from eachother for a bit. We know in our hearts we will always be friends. This November 25th (Jessica's 21st birthday...YAY), will be 3 years for us and hopefully we will have tons more years to come.

I am so excited we have started hanging out again. This past week has been so amazing. Hanging out with the boys of 1250 East, meeting new friends, are late night del taco run and getting our ugly unicorn and snake 50 cent tatoos (which I will probably never put on my body), ghost hunting, spoon me, Pour Some Sugar On Me (our stripper dance), our cabin experience and me being a total creeper...

Ashley: Ya Jess and I were doing it and then she fell asleep at 1am and I was up till 5am watching her sleep.

Garrett: Wait! A boy watched you sleep...creepy!

Ashley: No, I was watching Jess sleep because I'm a creeper like that!


Garrett wakes up to find me sitting there.

Ashley: Don't worry, I'm just watching you sleep, go back to bed!
ya im a creeper!

...playing mario kart and eating pokemon mac n' cheese, and so much more I can't even go on people will be soo jealous of our good times ;)

Anyways...everyone Jess left me saturday morning on a 10 day adventure to California leaving me stranded by myself in Utah! I don't know what she was thinking doing this to me, it's only been 1 day and I'm already struggling! When she gets home it will be nothing but Jess time. We will be camping and going on many adventures and I can hardly wait for that.

August 10th better come quickly.
