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!
