Some tidbits from Natalie!
What's been up? i haven't written in a long time, I have been
so busy and alot has been going on since we last talked or
I've been pretty good overall considering I lost my Grandma
a month ago due to Cancer of the Liver. I loved her so very
much:( She was a HUGE influence in my life and pretty much
my mom. I'm not as close to my own mom as I was with my
Grandma so it has been tough these past few weeks. Monday my
family and I are all taking Grandmas ashes to be buried next
to my Grandpa in Portland. It's hard to believe she is gone
physically. I will miss her greatly and know her spirit is
living in me.
On a brighter side I just got back from the Big Brother
Reunion in Rainbow, Oregon. It's about 2 hours south from
where I live:) 15 houseguests went: BB9: Me, representing
where it's at! Alex, Parker, Chelsia.BB10 Brian,Michelle,
April.BB6: James, Janelle, Howie,Beau, Ashlea. BB8: Kail,
We had a blast!! I made sure I gave everyone crap about
being in MY state!! I would say things like "would you look
at the size of those trees" , "Do you smell that fresh air!
" and boy did they!! Parker kept smelling the air, Chelsia
couldn't believe how green Oregon is and Howie kept
looking for Bigfoot:)LOL
There were so many fun events. We went river rafting in the
rain on the Mckenzi river when the water temp was 36 degrees
!!BUrrrr, it wasn't too bad though because we're having
sooooo much fun it took our minds off the cold. I laughed
so hard that my stomach hurt for days after!! It felt like
I did ab class with Arnold! Lol
My boat had a great guide named Matt & let Chelsia "Ride the
Bull" Which means to get in the very front sitting on top of
the raft, legs out holding onto rope. She got blasted so hard
it sounded & looked like a bomb going off! It even blew her
beanie right off head! LOL It was a 2 hour rafting trip with
3 different LorraineLorrainerafts. We had so much fun :)
Now, I had a ton of video's but unfortunately when I had a
couple of glasses of wine I was irresponsible and let someone
see it and they accidently DELETED my video's!!!
Damnit JIM!!! WHYYYYY!!! Figures:(
Well, I think there's like 3 or 4 but not the GOOD one's, for
the love of God!
The cool thing about this trip was that all the fans were invited
to:) So I got to meet some of my biggest fans and supporters:)
We got to karaoke, golf, drink, rafting,hot springs,
fan's Q & A meet and greet.
If you want to be a part of this when we do it again next year
I will make sure to let you know as soon as I hear word about
when it's gonna happen:) It should be even bigger and better.
There's some video's online on my facebook and picture's from
the fun filled event. Here's some links
