K so this is random.. and kinda gross- so beware!
but my hair has gotten SOOO thin :( ugh (probably due to the birth control) but I don't know what to do! It's like really bad! I have tried not straightening it and laying off the blow dryer. Anyone have any suggestions on vitamins to take or anything that might help?

I am a wuss.. well.. most of the time. Tomorrow I will be doing something HUGE!! Something I have NEVER done all by myself before.. (and it's not even THAT big of a deal, but I am still kinda scared!) Tomorrow I am going to be a big girl and do a big girl thing. I am going to travel ALL BY MYSELF! This is how my day will be:
1- Drive to the airport (easy enough.. as long as I don't get stuck in traffic)
2- Park the car (my amazing dad has always dropped us off..)
3- shuttle to the airport (ok.. all I have to do is listen for the airline DELTA and get off right?)
4- check in (cake, please no lines though)
5- fly (easiest part!)
6- Land in Portland Oregon Airport
7- Find baggage claim (please please please don't be a MASSIVE airport where you have to take a certain tram/shuttle to get your bags.. I don't know which one to take :( )
8- Get a taxi (please don't be some creeper... I'll be all alone)
9- Check in at hotel (I know I am only 20.. but please give me my room, I promise to take good care of it)
10- Pray that my papa-in-law will pick me up and take me to Jordan's game cause I really really really don't wanna try and figure out the underground train...
So it may not sound like a huge deal to you.. but this is the first time I will be all alone and have to figure out this stuff. (Positive thoughts Amber) But I am sure I will do just fine (wish me luck.) Then the next day we will be off to Cali to celebrate Christmas with the Swarbricks!

Put your Ipod on shuffle and list the first 10 songs it plays:
1: Breathe- Taylor Swift
2: Haven't Met You Yet- Michael Buble (LOVE IT.. because now I HAVE found him)
3: Russian Roulette- Rihanna (haven't listened to this song in MONTHS!)
4: Fallin' For You- Colbie Caillat (I fell... flat on my face and hard for my hubby)
5: Oh Christmas Tree- Glee Cast
6: Like a Prayer- Glee Cast (classic)
7: Hey- Lil' Jon and 3OH!3 (edited version of course.. great song! Sometimes I dance in my room when no one is home to this song. I try and come up with "sick" new moves to bust out, and ALWAYS fail)
8: Fearless- Taylor Swift (She is honestly the only person I listen to on my Ipod.. LOVE every one of her songs!)
9: Vultures: John Mayer
10: * one of my sped up aerobic music tracks* haha
What can you learn about me from this?? Prob that I haven't updated my Ipod in ages (besides the Christmas music)... Merry Christmas everyone!

Some things I wanted to do this past week:

Going Crazy (.....obviously...)
Here are some things I actually did this week:
- Put in many hours coaching cheer
- Lost my voice and got sick
- stayed up all night studying
- forgot to eat
- studied hard for finals
- FINISHED FINALS WEEK!!!
Couldn't be happier to be finished!!
I am so dang relieved to be done with this semester!! Now all I have to do is bite my nails till grades are posted. (I am actually going to go get a mani and pedi to reward myself for not dropping out of school ha) I hope all of you enjoy your Christmas break!! No class for almost 3 weeks!! yay!!!
All I have to say is that if I do not pass my stupid math class (again) then I am getting prego and dropping out of school!!! (haha totally kidding about the getting prego part.. not so much kidding about the dropping out of school part..be careful Jordo!! You better PRAY i PASS that stinkin class)
In only 1 week Jord and I will be in the amazing state of California spending Christmas with his cute Fam :)

Some of you have known that we have been waiting to hear back from the NCAA about Jordan's basketball eligibility. This has been a very long process! It was started even before we got married this summer. Due to some knee surgeries and other injuries, Jordan has missed a few semesters of playing basketball. Basically we had to get a ton of information from all his doctors saying that Jordan was not able to play or even practice with his team for a certain amount of time. (Sounds easy enough right?? Def. not! There were so many people involved in this process to make sure we had everything JUST RIGHT!) Well.. we finally heard back. I'll let this article explain:

Ok, so technically Jordans b-day isn't for another hour... but I cannot wait any longer to BLOG ABOUT IT! haha kidding.. I just wanted to give a little shout out to my husband. (sadly, I doubt he will EVER even read this post... he doesn't look at our blog unless I am blogging right in front of him.) I am really sad that Jordo is gunna be gone over his birthday :( I really wanted to make the day special and be with him. He is on a 2 game road trip that goes till Sunday. (Way too long to be away from your spouse)
On Monday my side of the fam had cake and ice cream with him and I got to give him my present. Jord was in desperate need of a new "updated and stylish" winter jacket. So where else to shop but NORDYS!? I got him a nice Northface jacket. I'll just come out and say it.. my husband looks DANG SEXY in it! And when he gets back on Sunday we are going to have our friends over for CAKE and ICE CREAM :) should be loads of fun.. and I hope catch phrase is apart of the night! haha
Well babe- I just want you to know how much I love you. You have made such an impact in my life, and I cannot imagine it without you. No one has ever made me happier, you make me laugh till I cry, and I am the person I want to be when I am with you.. (except when you drive like a grandma.. then the bossy Amber comes out ha) Thank you for being the greatest husband in the world!! You still manage to cook me dinner after a long basketball practice, and you even put your dishes away!!! Your post-it notes are the best! I have saved them all :) And nothing makes me happier than waking up to you snore. Usually men marry up.. but not in this case. I DEF got the better end of the deal here! Every night I thank my Heavenly Father for bringing us together. As Taylor Swift would say it: You Are The Best Thing That's Ever Been Mine! I cannot wait to spend the rest of eternity with you Jord. You are going to do great things in this life, and I feel extremely blessed to be your little wifey. I LOVE YOU! And happy birthday boo!
-Love Mrs. Swarbrick :)

K, so I know the only person I really talk about on this blog is Jordan... but for good reasons! Mainly because I love him :) and when he is gone I miss him, so writing about him helps. But more recently it is because he has been a freak of an athlete!! I am very proud to announce that my AMAZING man has been named player of the week for the Great West Conference!!! YAY!! Here is the article
