25 Days!

My cousin gets married in 25 days! I’m so excited! I get to go out to San Francisco and see my cousins and my aunt and uncle again! I’m really excited!

(Second time in history all my cousins on my dad’s side will be in the same room at the same time!) :)

It’s also a special day for my cousin that’s 10 years younger than me. It’s Special Friends’ Day at school, and I’ve been invited to go spend the day with her. We’re both really excited about that. I mean, wouldn’t you be excited to be able to go back to being 7 years old again for a day?! Bring on the naptime! Lol! Just kidding.

I’m really excited for my cousin and her fiancé. I can’t wait for him to be part of the family!

25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days 25 days!!!!!!!

Yeah I’m a little excited, sorry!

Local News Updates


Junk Food Addiction
Citizens today, according to KCRG’s recent article, may find themselves eating more and more junk food. They say this could be due to an addiction to junk food. They say that once you eat a little, you eventually have to have more and more of it. Ever crave chocolate? This could be why.

Wal-Mart Man Dies
If you haven’t already heard this, there was a man run over in a Wal-Mart parking lot by an elderly lady. She was instructed, after accidentally running him over, to not move her car because it cause more damage. After the police got the elderly lady’s car off the man’s neck, he was rushed to Intensive Care. A few days later, the man died. In my opinion, many people are being more careful and are being more alert when driving through parking lots.

Eighteen-Month Old Baby Dies

I always hate hearing about these. Another baby dying. Personally, I think its Shaken Baby Syndrome again. But we’ll see I guess. Maybe I’ll be wrong. I sure hope so. I feel so bad for that poor little girl. She was so little – she had her life ahead of her. I hope they figure out why this happened and if it was caused by another human being, I hope they are prosecuted with the worst possible sentencing.

Spring Break's Over

Spring Break is over! :(

I had a little bit of fun, but I’m really not happy to be back at school. On Spring Break, all the weight lifted from my shoulders. But now, since school has started again, it’s back on.

I went shopping. A lot. That’s practically all I did over break. Well, at least all of what I can remember!

I also went to a Bed and Breakfast called Mont Rest in Bellevue. It was a lot of fun and I met eight amazing people that I had a lot of fun with. At the Bed and Breakfast, there was also a murder mystery. It turns out three of us were the “murderers.” I guess two out of the three! Better than anyone else! And I was the youngest one there by at least five years!

At this Bed and Breakfast, I got to stay in the tower all by myself. It was a lot of fun because I had to go on a winding staircase in order to get to my room. If you look at the picture, the tower is the round-ish thing on the top of the building. I got to stay up there.

Something interesting I learned about this tower is that it was originally built for poker. Back when the room was built, gambling was illegal. So, they made this room in order to play poker. Back then, the only way to enter the room was from the roof. This made it a good hiding spot because police didn’t think there would be anything on the roof, therefore they never thought they would need to go up there.

Home sweet home, I guess. Bring on the homework! (Please don’t!)

Quotes from the Good Ol' Days

Ok, so when I said quotes from the Good Ol' Days, I didn't necessarily mean the Good Ol' Days. Some of these quotes are from two years ago, where others are from yesterday :)

They all have at least one thing in common though - they make me laugh every time I read them. They may not make sense to you; they may not be funny to you, but to me, they're hillarious. (Warning: Most show my friends', as well as my own, stupidity, and may be a you-just-had-to-be-there coinsidence)

Cousin Crazies

So like I said in my last post, my birthday is tomorrow. Well, my cousin, who lives in San Francisco and is going to get married in April, wanted to give me something. So instead of talking to my mom about this, she calls me on the phone and asks if there’s a makeup place near me so I can get some new makeup for her wedding. I instantly respond “Ulta”.

Well, yesterday afternoon, I got a card in the mail. It was from Ulta. I opened it up, and sure enough, it was from my cousin Whit. Inside, it said, “Bet you didn’t know what you were getting! :) Love you! –Whit”

Well, I got right on Facebook and wrote on her Wall. I said something along the lines of “I got a card in the mail today. It was from you. How did you know what I wanted? I guess we can read each other’s minds now! Lol. I love you cous! Thanks for the gift card!”

This was just a funny-ish thing I thought I’d share :)

Birthday Girls!

Well, my birthday is tomorrow. I’ll be 17. The cool thing about my birthday, is that it means two of my best friends, as well as another one of our friends, have birthdays coming up. Chels turns 21 on March 21st, Kt turns 22 on March 23rd, and Shay turns 20 on April 1st. We are trying to get together sometime soon to hang out and celebrate our birthdays together. We did this last year – went out to Texas Roadhouse for dinner and exchanged gifts. I hope we can do something like this again this year! It was a lot of fun!

I’m so excited for my birthday, as well as Chels, Kt, and Shay’s. Though, if you haven’t already noticed, I’m the youngest. There are only two of us now that won’t be 21 because Kt will be 22 and Chels will be 21. So this is a little sad because now there’s more of us that are legal to drink, which means us young’ins won’t be able to do AS MUCH stuff with the older girls. Oh well, we will still hang out a lot and have good times like we always have :)

A Weekend With the Boys

This past weekend, I spent the weekend with a friend and her two boys, one in second grade, and the other in preschool.

I had a lot of fun, picking them up from school on Friday, helping their mom get ready for a party that night, hanging out with them Saturday night and all day Sunday.

Going home wasn’t all that fun, though. The boys weren’t too happy to see me go, even though my house is only about twenty minutes away and they see me every single Sunday morning for breakfast at church.

The preschooler really enjoyed messing around with me and, quite honestly, confusing me with all his random subject changes while talking to me.

They all want me to stay with them again soon, and I’m hoping I’m able to do that. Making time to be with friends is one of the best things a girl can do because friends always seem to be what can get you through the rough days.

I loved spending the weekend with the boys and their mom. I’m really hoping to do it again and have another little party with the boys.

Regional Madness

Mock Trial Regionals are this coming Thursday. Last weekend, I attempted to memorize all that I need to memorize, but I wasn’t all that successful. I think I still have kind of a lot of work to do. I’ve tried, though, and I will continue to try to memorize this so I don’t let the team down.

Even though I’m not completely prepared yet, I’m really excited. This is my first year on the Mock Trial team, and I’m really looking forward to this court case.

We’re all hoping we go to state, as every team in any sport or team is. There are a lot of good schools this year, though, but we’ve been working really hard to make it to the top and move on to state.

Twitter Fanatic

Thursday night, my older sister made me get a Twitter account. Well, honestly, I’m now addicted. I used to change my Facebook status about a hundred times a day, it seems. But now, I’m able to update my statuses on Twitter, where people won’t get annoyed with me like they sometimes seem to do on Twitter.

With Twitter, I’m able to “follow” stars like Keith Urban, Katy Perry, and Mandy Moore. I’m also able to “follow” teams like the Chicago Cubs. By doing so, I’m able to learn more about them and learn early about concerts and other productions that are coming up for them.

I think Twitter will soon consume my life a lot like Facebook has. Yes, I say I’m addicted to Twitter now, but I think I will become even more addicted when I start following more people and after I begin to learn a little more about the website.
