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.
