Well it's been exactly one month since I have blogged, but it's summer and I've actually been pretty busy! Seriously, this past week and a half has been amazing. I now really have no patience for being at home. So here's what I've been up to lately..

  • I haven't been on any vacation believe it or not. But I will be gone this Thursday through Sunday because my parents have a concert to go to in Virginia Beach and they are taking me and my brothers with them. Not my favorite beach, but hey I'll take what I can get. And I'm just thankful to be able to do that at all.
  • I got a job! It feels like I've been worrying about this for an eternity, but I finally did. While I'm really excited, I'm also very very nervous about a lot of things. Hopefully it won't be too bad ;)
  • A couple weeks ago I was in a very tiny, minor accident and I go to court for it on Wednesday. (weeks before my actual license ceremony I remind you) I'm so nervous, mainly because I absolutely don't want a DIP class. I don't need it, I'm a good kid who just made a little mistake :) But seriously, I'll cry if they give it to me.
  • Summer is already half way over. But I won't think about that. This is also the first year I don't have to do summer reading, so that's always nice.
  • I'm not nearly as tan as I get in the summer. This makes me really sad. But I guess it's because I haven't been to the pool as much or the beach or anything.
  • Some of the fun things I've been up to: Salem Fair (I love it), helping Tayllar babysit the kiddos, going out to eat with friends more times than I even want to think about, hanging with Emma, going to the pool, late night trips to Sonic, and really just running around town. This summer has been 10x better thanks to being able to drive.
Well I think that's it. Today's Monday (which I normally hate during the school year ;) which means it's Bachelorette night! I can't wait for the finale next week, but I'm still sad over her sending Sean home. Stupid Emily. Ok, have a good week :)

Saturday, June 16, 2012


  • This has been such a crazy fast week! I swear it was just last Sunday. I'm hoping it doesn't continue this way because summer is only a short 10 weeks.
  • I've developed an extremely low tolerance of sitting at home. I usually don't mind a day or two, but it's getting pretty annoying (unless it's the days we have Emma of course). Most of the time I'm up to do just about anything at anytime, but have a very limited about of people I can do anything with.
  • Speaking of Emma, it is so extremely exhausting taking care of her, but no matter what I always end up missing her as soon as we drop her off. She's clearly my bff these days ;) And she always gets so excited to see me and it just makes me so happy.
  • I'm a little overly excited for the Salem Fair. (Weird, I know.)
  • Usually I live at the pool, but haven't been there much at all this year. This is a big issue because I need to get tan in order to be able to wear my hot pink bathing suit, haha.
  • I have more dr. appointments coming up for my stomach, which I'm not too excited about. I have a strong feeling I'll be tested for Celiac disease. Which means no good food for me.
  • I think I'm finally getting a replacement phone... fingers crossed!
  • I've been super duper jealous of everyone at the beach ... seriously though that's all people talk about on facebook/twitter lately. But I don't blame them.
  • I can't tell you how bad I want to do something crazy and fun, at least one night.
  • Ok that's about all the craziness running through my summer brain right now... I think.

My First Week of Summer

Well I can't believe it, but my first week of summer is already over! For the most part, it was very good. There was a few very boring days though. It was just so nice to be able to sleep in everyday, go to bed whenever, and do pretty much whatever I want. I haven't really been that busy, but here's what I've been up to.

Last Sunday I went to a family cookout at my Grandmother's. We were there pretty much all day. It was a good day and of course I chased Emma all over the place!
Worn out from playing!

Tuesday was the next day that I actually left the house, but it wasn't until about 7. I went to Kayla's birthday campout and it was so fun! And of course we were up most of the night. I really would like to do more stuff like that in the future.

On Thursday, the first thing I did was go to lunch with Tayllar and Clair at Brambleton Deli. That was nice because we have all been friends since elementary school and never really do stuff just the three of us. After that I went to the pool which is always a fun thing to do because there's so many people to hang out with and talk to. Finally after the pool, Kendall and I went to dinner at Rancho Viejo. I was so happy to finally have a busy day!

Friday was also a pretty busy day! Kendall, Matt, Sandy, and I went to lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings and then I came home and napped before I went to Mehgan's pool party. I really enjoyed getting to hang out with everyone at once. Kendall, Tayllar, and I also stayed up until 7:00 am (crazy, I know) and got up around 8:00 to go eat breakfast. Saturday once I got home, I slept until 3:00! I didn't even realize how tired I was until I layed down to take a nap. I felt a lot better after that :) Later in the day Kendall and I went for a Kabuki date and then I came home and finally caught up on my sleep!

Overall it was a pretty good first week, but I hope that I can get a little busier because sitting at home for the majority of a week is not a very fun time!

Hellllo Summer!

You have no idea how happy I am to say that! I have been waiting for this for what literally seems like forever. But I do have to admit, as much as this year sucked, it flew by. I can't believe in two months I will be a junior. That is insane! I just can't wait to be in an overall better mood each day since I won't have the constant stress of school.

I don't really have any specific plans for this summer, but I'm sure it will be great! Countless days at the pool, (hopefully) working, sleeping in everyday, and just whatever I can find to do now that I can drive :) Woohoo Happy Summer!

Fun Four Day Weekend!

So I'm a little late on this, but this past weekend I had four days off and it was sooo much fun! Although, I think it ended up being a bigger tease because I couldn't believe I had to go back to school. But that's okay because the best news ever: tomorrow is my last day of school, I have 2 exams, and then I'm free! You have no idea how happy that makes me :) :) Okay, on to my weekend!

Friday I went around town and hung out with Sandy for a few hours. We went to Macado's, Plato's Closet, Menchie's (of course), and just kind of rode around. It was super fun to stay that busy and go wherever we wanted! I came home for a little while and then went to dinner with my mom and dad at Longhorn Steakhouse. It was pretty good, but my stomach was hurting really bad so I didn't really get to enjoy my dinner.

Saturday was a great day! It was the first day the pool was open, which is my life during the summer. I was actually in a way, kind of dreading this because I did not want to be in a bathing suit. Well actually, I still don't want to be in a bathing suit at all, but I'm hoping I can get used to that. I spent 6 hours or so at the pool and then after went to dinner and Maggie Moo's with Kendall. When I got home, I was so exhausted I went straight to bed and slept for almost 12 hours.

Sunday I just went to the pool again for most of the day and then later went to go pick up Emma because we were watching her the next two nights. On Monday, my mom, dad, and I took Emma to the RAC pool and she loved it! She was completely worn out though. I stayed home and watched her for a few hours so my parents could go work out and run some errands, and then we went to Forest Hills pool for a little while with her. It's so much fun to take her, plus it makes her really tired which is kind of a good thing because she's a crazy, energetic, crawling 9 month old these days ;)

Overall, it was a very good weekend. It made me want summer so bad, which luckily isn't very far away! It also made me really want to go to the beach and just live the summer life. I can't wait :)

My Amazing Amazing Weekend

This is probably going to be a pretty long post, just warning ya. I was supposed to go to school yesterday but didn't get home until 6 am and was not feeling good at all at 7:30. I figured it was just from being so tired, but I'm still feeling like that now and am not at school. I'm sure I'm going to have to take all my exams now. Lovely. Anyways, let me tell you allll about my weekend...

Friday after school I went to the gym for a little while, came home and showered, and then went to Red Palace for dinner with Mehgan, Sarah, Lauren, Clair, and Kelsey. It was delicious, but all of that food hurts my tummy. When I got home I did some of the things I needed to do to get ready for the weekend and caught up on a bunch of tv.

Saturday morning I woke up around 8:30, watched The Bachelorette from this past week, and packed for the weekend. We left around 12:30 or 1:00 and got to Cincinnati at about 6:30. We checked into our hotel, got ready, and then got ready for dinner. It was nice to be in a big city like that with most things right in walking distance. After a good dinner, we walked around a good amount of Cincinnati just exploring, and may or may not have illegally eaten cheesecake at Toby Keith's bar & grill ;) (a really funny story actually)

Sunday was a realllly busy great day! We had a good breakfast at the hotel and then went back to the room (with minor shower mishaps) to get ready. Around 1:00 we left to go to a huge mall that they had there. We stayed there until almost 3:00 and then went to the movies to see What To Expect When You're Expecting. It was such a cute, funny movie. I loved it! Then we headed back to the mall for just a little while, then had dinner at Cheesecake Factory. Which everyone knows is always delicious. Finally, it was time to head to the concert. I was so excited, I mean I had been waiting for this since Christmas. It was a sold out show so I knew it would be crazy. Every part was so good. Scotty- well I just love him. And I can't wait to go to his own concert one day. I also got a tshirt of his. ( couldn't resist) The Band Perry- they were very entertaining. I was surprised at how good of a singer the girl was. They also did a cover of Fat Bottemed Girls, which I really liked. And finally, Brad Paisley- he's in my top three, if not my favorite, country singers. Seriously. It was unbelievable I was actually seeing him. He played for two hours straight, non stop, and was so hilarious. And probably one of the best guitar players I've ever heard. It was such an amazing concert and well worth the wait. Here's a bunch of pictures and a vid.

This Crazy Week

So this has been a very very busy week for me!

On Monday I went to Macado's with my mom for dinner. It was so hard to resist that Madison Mud Pie. I'm really dying to have a good dessert lately, but ya know, the pool opens next weekend so none of that for me :) After that we just ran a few errands and then came home and pretty much went right to sleep.

Tuesday was the first day of my SOL's. It was for Biology and pretty easy I thought. I still don't know what I got on it though. After school I went to the gym and worked out for about 45 minutes, got dinner at Taco Bell (kinda contradicts the gym I guess), and then got my eyebrows done. When I got home I showered and then watched the 2 hour Glee episode. It was sooooo good and I'm really sad the season finale is next week. I'll also be interested to see how next season works out with the majority of everyone in college.

Wednesday I had my History SOL. I'm about 70% sure I didn't pass and 100% sure I didn't pass advanced. Most of all the material was from the first semester when we didn't really do anything in class, so it was pretty hard. After school Tayllar, Kayla, and I went to play racquetball at the gym and then Kayla and I went to Froth and did a bunch of gossiping until her mom came and picked her up :) I got home pretty early Wednesday and just watched a bunch of Toddlers and Tiaras and caught up on other tv.

Thursday I got to go into school late because I didn't have an SOL. Tayllar, Kelsey, Trey, Kayla, and I all went to Famous A's for breakfast. We were supposed to be at school at 11:30, I think I got there at about 11:45, and then still had to wait until 12:30 for testing to be over. It was such a waste of a day. After 3 hours of school I went to the gym again and then went tanning at the pool for a little bit with Kendall :) When I got home I didn't do too much besides watch tv and then American Idol. Yay Phillip! :)

And today, I also don't have to be at school until 11:30  but I'm definitely not going in that early based on yesterday. After school is over I'm planning on going to the gym and then I think to dinner. I also have a bunch of stuff to do when I get home to get ready for this weekend. It's honestly going to take me the rest of the afternoon. But I'm so excited for the concert Sunday. Yaaaaay :)

Okay, well I know this has been a super long post but I just get so excited when I have a good week to write about! Have a good weekend :)

Weekend :)

Yay I finally have somewhat of an interesting weekend to write about ;)

Friday after school Tayllar, Kevin, and I went riding around for a little while and I went and looked at a few places for a job. Wasn't really as successful as I had hoped, but it's a start. When I got home I didn't really do much of anything. Actually, I was asleep by 9:30.

Saturday was a pretty fun day! I went to the gym at about 11:00 and did 2 miles on the elliptical, which by the way is HUGE for me. Just sayin. I'm really going to push myself to try to go every day for the next two weeks because putting on bathing suits made me cry. After that I came home and showered and then went to turn in one of my applications. About an hour later I finally went to Starbucks for happy hour (I couldn't resist) and then picked up one of my prescriptions. I came home and watched a little TV, then went to Brambleton Deli with Tayllar and Kelsey for dinner. Then we pretty much just round around town for a little while and ended up at Macado's eating a huge dessert. Don't worry I only I had a couple bites ;) And as usual when I got home I pretty much went straight to bed. I think it was about 10:30.

Sunday was pretty much a very relaxed mother's day. We didn't do too much because my mom wasn't feeling well, but we made up for it with dinner last night :)

Overall I had a better weekend than I've had in a while. Can't wait for SOLs to be over and the next one :)

~Today has been pretty stressful! I have hours of homework to do, even after I spent 3 classes today doing it. I am not happy about this and can't tell you how much I don't even want to begin studying and doing homework. Again. For the fourth time today. Seriously, it's the middle of May and SOLs are next week. Why the hell are teachers still giving me so much homework?

~People at my school make me so mad. Not that this isn't an everyday thing. Seriously, I could go on a rampage about this right now.

~I really can't take school anymore. It takes everything I have to get out of bed in the mornings. Just 15 more days...

~Kendall and I are going to see Brad Paisley on the 20th in Cincinnati. I can't even begin to explain my excitement.

~I'm ready for the pool to open, but not necessarily to go. Seriously, I do not want to be in a bathing suit. At all.

~I'm pretty sure we are switching over to Verizon so I will get a new phone! Yay! But boo for my number being changed :(

~And yeah I'm just super stressed out about everything and this was really a pointless post but I just felt like blogging. Makes me feel a little better and gives me a reason to procrastinate on my homework some more.

Monday, April 30, 2012


I've pretty much been the worst blogger ever lately. I just honestly haven't had much to talk about or been in a good mood lately. Mostly because of school. Geez, I wish June would hurry up! Anyways, I did have a very exciting night this week :) Thursday night I went to the Billy Currington concert with Tayllar and Kendall. Seriously, I just love him. It did kind of make me sad about missing my other concert though :(  Here's a few pictures :)

I think I'm about ready to return to the blogging world since I'm sure there's sooo many of you wondering where I am ;) Can I just throw in there real quick that blogger has completely changed on me and posting on my school computer is next to impossible. But I'm trying.

  • So the most exciting news in my life lately is that I got my license! I'm so happy, but also a little scared :) I'm dying to go out and do something since I can drive myself, but everyone is just so busy :(
  • I haven't been to the gym in forever. But I have been really busy everyday this week. I better get back into that soon so my membership doesn't get cancelled.
  • My room needs to be cleaned. I spent hours last week going through clothes and putting them away, and then I just get more back from the laundry. It's frusturating.
  • I'm hoping to go see Footloose tonight at my school; I've heard it's really good.
  • My phone is getting more and more on my bad side. All I have to say about that.
  • Things lately are starting to go a litttttle better. I just hope it continues...
That's about it for now. Hopefully I'll have an exciting weekend to recap!

Sunday, April 15, 2012


Just wanted to ensure everyone that I'm still here :) Just as I figured, spring break flew  by and school starts back up again tomorrow. I really could write a whole post on how much I can't handle it anymore, but I just keep telling myself there's only about 16 B days left, so hopefully that will help. I had hoped to blog all about spring break but there's not that much to say. I've just been dealing with a lot of personal issues lately, and am super stressed out. Hopefully I can get back into things soon. Here's to the next 6 to 7 weeks of hell!

Thursday, April 5, 2012



I am so incredibly excited to be out of school for a week, sleeping in and all. I got my green card today, so I will be taking Behind The Wheel. Which means, I'm 7 classes away from having my license! You can't imagine the excitement. I'm just hoping I don't do something incredibly stupid on the test part and not pass ;) I wish that I could be at the beach this week, but sadly that will have to wait until summer. Even thinking of it makes me a little sad because I love the beach so so much. Probably my favorite place. But, my spring break won't be too bad! Tomorrow morning I am leaving around 6:30 to go to King's Dominion and then staying the night. I love roller coasters and haven't been to an amusement park in a couple of years, so I'm pretty excited. (I was supposed to go last year on Easter, but I woke up unable to move my neck any at all, so my mom and I had to stay home.)

I do have a few other plans for Spring Break besides this and doing Behind The Wheel everyday. I'm hoping to go tanning, but with the weather here not being very good (isn't that convenient) that will probably mean going to the tanning bed. Trust me, I understand how terrible they are for you, and I'm very scared of them for multiple reasons including getting stuck in one. But I plan on only going about 3 times for about 5 minutes each so I can at least get a little color and not be messed with about being white when I go back to school. Because believe me, I get enough of that. I'm going to try to go to the gym 4 or 5 times to get good use of it and really crack down on getting a decent bikini body. Hopefully Kendall and I will get to go see Titanic and do a few other things, and I'm sure we will have lots of time with my favoritest baby in the whole world :) Spring Break always flies by and then there's still about 6 weeks of school after that (which I dread), so I'm really going to enjoy every minute of it. Hope you have a good one :)

Monday, April 2, 2012


  • The only thing that's going to get me through this week is knowing Spring Break starts Friday. The main thing I'm worried about is the five full weeks of school after Spring Break. God only knows how I'll manage to do that.
  • Speaking of Spring Break, I don't have too many plans. On Friday I'm going to King's Dominion (which I absolutely love!), and am just really praying to get my green card this week so that I can do behind the wheel. I also need to get some kind of tan, it's a little scary how white I am.
  • I ordered two of the bathing suits that I wanted. One of them, I sent the bottoms back for a different style, and the top to the other one is back-ordered until May.
  • I really want to see Titanic in theatre. Don't ask me why. I don't know if I can handle 3 and a half hours of 3D though.
  • I also really wanted to see this movie called Bully, but it's not playing at any of the theatres here. I'm really passionate about that kind of stuff, for obvious reasons. Mostly because I've gotten my fair share in the past.
  • I'm so jealous of everyone going to the beach next week. Which is half of Roanoke. But it's probably a good thing that I'm not going because this body in a bikini would not be a pretty sight.
  • I took a few things to Plato's Closet and got about $75 for 19 items. While I still think they are too picky, that's the most I've ever gotten I think.
  • I have just been wanting summer so bad lately. I can't wait to (hopefully) go to the beach, spend the day at the pool (having concerts with Kenz ;), drive myself wherever I want to, have zero stress from school, and so much more! (I did realize that summer is only 10 weeks long, which seems like complete crap to me. We also go back on August 21st, and I was pretty certain it wasn't supposed to be until after Labor Day)
  • I really really need help thinking of places to apply for a job. I have to get on that super super soon, and I just have no idea where to go. It's stressing me out!
  • I was actually a little relieved I didn't have to go through cheer tryouts this past week.
  • I got a little bit of sun today at my brother's game. None on my legs, but everywhere else is slightly pink. Awesome.
  • I have to continue going to the gym at least three times a week or my membership will be cancelled. I'm hoping I can keep it up; I'm usually so busy during the week though!
  • I haven't had sweet tea in I don't know how long. I really could go for a Route 44 from Sonic right about now.
  • Taylor Swift winning entertainer of the year on the ACM's= me a very unhappy person. When will it ever stop? At least Scotty won though! Also, have I mentioned how in love I am with Eric Church's new song? Honestly, I don't really listen to anything besides country, and I'm completely fine with it.
I think that just about does it. Thank goodness Monday is over :)

Weekend Recap

I actually had a pretty busy weekend! And I have to say, it was really one of the fastest I've had in a while.

Friday I went to the high school baseball game with Kendall. This was the first high school one I've ever been to, but I'm definitely not new to baseball. Obviously. After we decided to take a last minute trip to Bdubs for dinner but they were too crowded so we went to Rancho Viejo. Always a favorite of mine :) I got home around 8 or 8:30 I think, and was asleep by 10:00. I clearly love my sleep!

Saturday Kendall and I went to the gym at about 11:30. I walked a mile and a half around the track, did a half of a mile on the elliptical, and then we did some ab workouts. I'm really proud to say, I'm not sore at all! Hopefully I can keep this up. I came home and laid around for a while, took a shower, and got ready to go to Kabuki for the second week in a row. Yes we're nuts. But again, it was delicious! Although my stomach did attack me after.

Today I actually had a productive Sunday. When I woke up around 11 I watched cheerleading for a while and left my house about 2:00. I went to Plato's Closet to get some money for the clothes I took there and actually looked around for about 2 hours. I ended up getting two pairs of shorts, a shirt, and a dress. After that I went to Target and got a few things there as well. I just need one more pair of shorts and one more bathing suit and all my summer shopping will be done. Pretty good feeling. For the rest of the day I'm just going to be hanging out and then watch the Academy ofCountry Music Awards later. Really excited for those. Go Scotty! :)

This Week

Well, this week has been pretty eventful. It has really really dragged on though.

Monday after school I went to my brother's baseball game. But first got dinner at Burger King, the second day in a row. Whoooooops! After that I drove around a little, came home and showered and all that good stuff, and was asleep by 10:00!

Tuesday was a pretty fun day. At school, I took the National Spanish Exam. Let's just say that wasn't too good, but it was 99% stuff we haven't learned so what do they expect? After school my mom picked me up (with Emma) and we went to Ruby Tuesday's. It wasn't really dinner time, but I was so hungry because I had to eat first lunch that day. I have to say, it was pretty eventful trying to eat out with a baby. After that, we went to the mall to see the Easter Bunny. I was a little more excited about that than I should have been. He did really freak me out though. Emma did pretty good; she didn't cry, but she also didn't smile. She looked pretty terrified. (Oh, she also has her ears pierced now, which is adorable.) When we were done at the mall we came home for a few minutes and then I went to get my eyebrows done. I got home around 7:00, showered, of course played with and took care of the baby, and was asleep at 9:30. Crazy.

Thursday I went to go get a few things at Walmart, got a delicious chicken bacon and ranch sandwich from Subway, and went to my brother's baseball game. When I got home, I studied for my math test and of course watched Scotty on American Idol :) Can I also just throw out there that people suck at voting, just saying.

I don't really have any plans for the weekend, but hopefully I can come up with something! TGIF :)

Weekend Recap

Woah, this weekend flew by! And the fact that I have a full B day week ahead of me does not sound very pleasing at all. Anyways, here's what I was up to this weekend.

Friday I came home from school and just hung out for a while. I drove around for a little bit, and then came home to get ready and go to Kabuki with Kendall. I bet you're going to think I'm crazy, but believe it or not, this was the first time I've ever been to Kabuki. I have to say, it was very delicious! I want to go back sometime soon. I was very surprised by all the food that they give you. It was definitely something different for Kendall and I to do. She goes through a lot of 'firsts' with me :) After Kabuki we went and picked up my brother and went to Menchie's. Yes, I broke my frozen yogurt strike addiction. I was doing so well, but I figured why not. And it was so good. I have been doing very well eating lately with the exception of that and a shamrock shake. But it's okay to break that every once in a while :)

Saturday I didn't do too much. I was supposed to go out with my mom all day, but plans got changed around a little. I woke up around 11:30, which was soo nice. I hate wasting my only two days off by sleeping in, but I'm just so exhausted from the week. I can't help it, it's crazy. I watched a movie and a little bit of tv and then got ready to run errands with my mom and dad. First, we went to TJ Maxx to look at workout clothes. I got two sports bras, two pairs of workout pants, a pair of workout shorts, and a tank. This was all pretty expensive, but way way less than what you would pay at a normal store. When we were done with TJ Maxx we headed to Walmart and got groceries and few other things. It was about 9:00 when we got home, and I was out at about 10:15 because I wasn't feeling well.

And Sunday, my always lazy day. I actually was supposed to go to a cheer banquet and then go tan with Kendall. But I woke up feeling awful with a fever, probably because I had not eaten in a day and a half. Therefore I did not make it to the banquet. And of course because of the weather, we weren't able to tan. I pretty much spent the whole day catching up on tv which was very needed :)

So, I had a decent weekend. I have a pretty eventful week ahead though :) Lord help me with the school part!

My To Do List

I have about 100 things I need to get done (I'm exaggerating, but it doesn't feel like it.)

  1. Clean my room. It's truly a disaster. My bed collapsed, there are clothes everywhere, and it's just a complete wreck. I'm sooo dreading this.
  2. Join the gym. (Hopefully getting done this weekend)
  3. Actually continue going to the gym. And probably having to decrease the difficulty because I can't move. Pretty embarrassing.
  4. Order new bathing suits. They are so so expensive. So I'm not sure how I'm going to do this without a job. Not to mention I really need new shorts, which are also very expensive, and I want some new summer clothes.
  5. Speaking of jobs, I need to find one. Now. I still have no idea where to look.
  6. Take behind the wheel. Hopefully I can get started on that next week, considering I should be driving by then.
  7. Get my hair done.  (money I don't have) :(
  8. Take my old clothes to Plato's closet.
  9. Find some cheap workout clothes. Clearly I'm needing a lot of money that I don't have. Sigh.
  10. Catch up on tv. (I'm sure this won't be too difficult :)

Weekend Recap

I didn't have too exciting of a weekend, but four days off was verrry nice :)

Friday I pretty much did nothing. I went to dinner with my dad and got some more steak and crablegs! Never can get enough of that. After that we took a short trip to the grocery store, and then came home.

Saturday was a pretty busy day. I went to a cookout at my grandma's house in Botetourt. I took the interstate for the first time. A little too scary for my liking. I don't mind driving on it, but I hate merging on. I ate some good food, played some games, and spent the majority of my day there. Saturday night I went to Kendall and Sandy's sweet sixteen birthday party :) I'm not used to that much in one day. Even though it exhausts me, it is better than staying at home.

Sunday I also didn't do much of anything. All day I watched shows on Discovery Health, and a show called I Survived which is about people amazingly living through near-death experiences. Pretty crazy stuff.

Annnnd yesterday. I went with Tayllar to 419 for lunch and got really good chicken salad and fruit. Oh my gosh, that fruit was delicious. I came home and watched a little bit of TV, and took a little nap. Later in the day I went to Macados for dinner with my dad and brother, and ran a few errands.

And there ya go, that's my weekend. It wasn't the best, but I'll take four day weekends any day :)

*P.S. I really need to get a job soon. I need money for bathing suits, summer clothes, gas, and just everyday things. I have no idea at all where to even look, any suggestions?!

Happy Midweek :)

Let's Play Catch-up

Well let's see here; the 3rd nine weeks is officially over. I'm very happy with my grades, and very happy there's only one nine week period left until summer. This seems like so long though. I'll probably be throwing myself some sort of party whenever school is over.

This weekend, I have four days off. Today, I have done nothing. You know, the usual. I am going to dinner with my dad and my brothers later though. We were supposed to babysit yesterday and today, but ended up not. Tomorrow, I am going to a family cookout. Hopefully we can get the baby then because she has to be able to wear the adorable St. Patty's day outfit I bought her :) Then, I have a party to go to later in the day. So tomorrow will be a very unusual eventful day for me. I don't have any plans for Sunday or Monday so far, except for really needing to clean my disaster of a  room.

I have been doing a bit better with my eating. It could be better, but I really have not eaten anything like junk food (or frozen yogurt :) lately. I think I've finally convinced my dad to join the gym, so we are going to look into that soon. I'm so excited for summer, but all of this just makes me hate it.

I have about a million things stressing me out right now. It's only that much because I literally stress about every single little thing. I absolutely hate it, but I can't help it.

I really would like to change schools. I've always thought about this for a long time, but this year is really just making me want to even more. I have many many reasons for this, but I doubt I actually will. I have more pros than cons on whether to change schools, but those cons are pretty strong. I just feel like I could have a better "high school life", and would regret not changing in the future. But who knows, I have a while to think about this :)

Still haven't ordered concert tickets. Or any of the bathing suits I want. I should probably get on it.

Oh, this is a good one. I'm officially not cheering this year. While this is very strange since I've cheered since I was 6, I never really expected to change my mind after I decided I didn't want to. It does kind of suck, but I had my reasons. Mainly, I just think I've had enough.

We are going to be in Driver's Ed for at least 3 more weeks. And I have to take behind the wheel. I'm supposed to be able to drive in 13 days. 13! That's not long at all. It really eats me alive that people who are supposed to get their license after me, will get it before me, because they had driver's ed last semester. Frustration, I tell ya.

Okay well I guess that's enough catching up for now. Have a good weekend! I hope mine is good as well.

I feel like I have 100 things running around in my head right now, so why not write it all down?

  • My phone is really irritating me. The phone place told me I had water damage, but I really cannot think of what it could be from. Anyways, my phone is driving me nuts. Water damage can really make your phone do some crazy things. Not to mention I just got this phone 6 months ago.
  • I'm supposed to be getting my license in about 16 days. But at the rate our class is going, we won't finish Driver's Ed for many more weeks. Then I have to worry about when to start behind the wheel, and just be super mad I won't get to be driving on time all because the school was too lazy to take time to put people in the right semester. I mean there are so many people that should have been in Driver's Ed this semester instead of last. I know this seems like I'm overreacting, but I guarantee if you were in my position, you would be just as pissed off.
  • Whenever I do get behind the wheel and all of that done, I have to get a job. And I don't even know where to begin looking.
  • Everyone keeps talking about how good McDonald's Shamrock Shake is, so of course I'm dying to try one. Also, this craving for frozen yogurt has not gone away. Ugh.
  • I did homework for three straight hours yesterday, and I didn't even finish studying for my math test. Not kidding when I say this literally made me sick. I am extremely happy with my grades this nine weeks though :)
  • I'm stressing about getting a group together and tickets for the Billy Currington concert next month.
  • I hate the hot weather. For the most part when we still have to go to school and have a very limited choice of what to wear. Miserable.
  • I'm really looking forward to my 4 day weekend :)
  • I get really annoyed when Ellen doesn't tape because there's stupid basketball on instead. Seriously?
  • I am so happy there are more dates now for the concert :) August/September is forever away though.
  • It's so nice outside that it kind of makes me want to go running, but then I remember that I absolutely hate running more than anything in the world.
  • This time change still hasn't settled with me yet.
  • I really need a tan. Mostly so I won't have to go to school after spring break when everyone is really tan and I'm not and get made fun of. I'm thinking of going to the tanning bed with my mom just to get a base. Because they scare me.
  • I am beyond ready for summer, and to hopefully go to the beach, but am dreading the process getting ready for that. I just keep looking at cute bathing suits online for motivation :)
Okay, I think that's enough for now. I do think I could keep going. Maybe all of this is why I'm constantly so stressed :)

Weekend Recap

I've had a really good weekend, but it went by so fast! I swear it was just Friday like five minutes ago. Anyways, here's what I've been up to.

Friday I left school early and went to Richmond with Kendall. First, we went shopping at Short Pump. I got a couple things, but realized I need new shorts (which are for some reason so expensive), new bathing suits, and a new body to go with those things ;)  Then we came back and hung out and watched the Jersey Shore marathon until I finally passed out at 1:00. I also found out that day that they have released more dates for the concert, and even though the closest we can go isn't until August or September, I will somehow just have to wait.

Saturday morning, we woke up pretty early around 9 and then ate breakfast. After we got ready and packed up, we left for the game. There wasn't a lot of people there, but it was still fun. Unfortunately, we didn't win but had a great season! After the game we went to Chili's for lunch, and then headed home. I was asleep the whole way, so it went by pretty fast. When I got home, I watched a little TV with my mom, and went to bed between 9:30 and 10:00.

And today, I haven't done much of anything. Which is pretty much what my Sunday always is. I took a three hour nap and woke up around 5. Sometimes I hate doing this because it makes me feel terrible. Like now, I really don't feel good. And I have a massive amount of homework to start, which I'm dreading. I'm estimating it to take at least two hours. Like what is the point in that much homework? Ughh. In other words, I am really craving some frozen yogurt. But I can't have it or anything else delicious for that matter, because I had so much stuff this weekend. And as we all know, spring and summer are just around the corner. And maybe my biggest enemy right now :) Wow, how is it already 6:00? I still have to do all that homework, shower, eat dinner, and everything else. Guess I should go get started on that.

Photo Friday!

Just being messy at dinner.

Chilling after bath time in her ducky robe. Too bad you can't see the hood, it's the cutest part :)

Today I am leaving school early and Kendall and I are heading to Richmond. We are going to go shopping at Short Pump, and then the state finals basketball game Saturday. Can't wait, go Knights! Have a good weekend :)

Over The Weekend..

Well, I really really really really wish I had a concert to tell you about, but sadly I don't. If you didn't hear about all the bad weather and tornadoes, all of that was occurring right where we had to go for the concert. Therefore, we couldn't go. I was hoping it would get cancelled and rescheduled, but the show went on. Carrie Underwood even made a surprise appearance too, so ya know. Not going to lie, I cried literally all. day. long. Pretty ridiculous, but if you knew me at all, you knew how excited I was. I'm hoping they release more tour dates soon with the same people, because I'm finding one way or another to get my butt to that concert. Okay, moving on before I get too upset ;)

Friday night, I went to dinner and to get frozen yogurt with Kendall. We love frozen yogurt. We should probably travel the world and just go to frozen yogurt shops. After, we went to the game. It was definitely crazy in more than one ways, but at least we won :) I am really looking forward to Tuesday (hopefully SOL's are for sure postponed) to go to Richmond. But not so much the bus part.

Saturday I went to breakfast at IHOP, then to a baby consignment shop at the mall (my mom and I's true weakness) and ran some errands. Later, I went to dinner at Logan's and ate my favorite, steak and crablegs :) After, Kendall and I went on a last minute date and saw This Means War, and then got more frozen yogurt. I should probably stop eating, summer is right around the corner ;)

And Sunday, I didn't do much of anything. I needed to clean and go through old clothes, badly. But I couldn't make myself get up and do it. I did have to write an awful English essay though. That took a lot longer than it should have, and I pretty much didn't even try. We were supposed to babysit, but it didn't work out. I miss her, we haven't babysat in almost two weeks!  I was really hoping for a closing, but expected a two hour delay at most. But I was wrong. Being closed was the first thing that's gone my way all weekend :) So I will have a three day week this week, two of those on a delayed schedule because of SOL's. I think I can do it :)

Happy 1st of March!

I feel like I disappear from blogging during most of the week. I also feel like during that time I am wrapped up in nothing but school work. But that's only because I really am. Like yesterday for example, I was in school all day, had to go to Virginia Western to take a test for dual calc, then come home and do tons of homework and more studying. I mean, how ridiculous. Speaking of that test I had to take, I did not pass (which i was sort of expecting) and have to go back for at least a third time and take it again. I was honestly freaking out until I found out I wasn't the only one. But in better news, I have a high A in math which I haven't had probably since 6th grade. As of right now, I am very very happy with my grades. Even though I beyond stress myself out getting to that point. Okay, enough about school.

I've had a otherwise decent week outside of school. Monday I went to Macado's and Menchies for the first time, which was delicious. I am a huge fan of the do it your own frozen yogurt places. Tuesday I went to IHOP with Tayllar, Clair, and Trey to celebrate National Pancake Day. It was a pretty good time. I came home and did homework and stuff, and watched the season finale of Parenthood. (Yes this was an important part of my week). More to come on that on my TV Recap this weekend that I can hopefully get around to.

Today I had a pretty busy day at school, but it surprisingly went by faster than usual. I have a bunch to do this afternoon. I have to clean my room up a little bit (or a lot), pack, put songs on my Ipod because I never keep up with that unless I go somewhere, and eat dinner and shower and all that good stuff :) In case you can't tell by my to-do list, the concert is tomorrow! :) I am so excited. I love riding in the car and going out of town, and I love Brad Paisley and Scotty! You would think I'm going to the beach or something for a week. So yeah that and getting everything done is pretty much the only thing on my mind right now. Can't wait to tell allll about it :) Have a good weekend!
