I was...

Out of town! I took off of school to go on vacation.... how nice it is to leave school for a week, and have spring break the next! but i have like 5 quizes to make up when i get back... nice.

It was very relaxing. We went to my grandmother's second house for about 6 days, (2 1/2 hours away) in the middle of nowhere. Seriously! She has 150+ acres. Unfortunately, the weather was pretty bad. BUTTT-- we had plenty to do! The place we were had a ton of antique stores, and in one little town they had 12! So part of the trip, we went antique shopping. I found some ADORABLE vintage 1920-1930's Valentines. Caroline and Lauren found a ton of awesome stuff! I didn't bring my money, so I usually don't like borrowing. they find all the stuff! Gosh darn it!:) But anyways, we went to a drugstore downtown and got orangeades. It's a very small, but cool town!




















I think the architecture is pretty cooL~! I love the color blue


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After a couple of days of canoeing, fishing & antique shopping, we went down to Nags Head, in the outer banks. It was very cold and rainy, so we decided to hit the tanger outlets. You've heard me talk about them before (ski trip). We only went to a couple of places-- Ralph Lauren, Gap, Eddie Bauer... the usual. I only got something in Ralph Lauren. I got a big tote in navy. It's like Carolines.. i don't have a picture of it. It was on sale!!! YESS i am such a sucker for sales. $25... I love it! I've never had such a big tote bag as this before. It's not filled, but I'm proud of myself for fitting as much as i did!:)

When we got back to our motel, we watched Rachel ray and ate shrimp, asparagus and rice for dinner... yummy! We also watched Jon & Kate plus 8. I had heard so much about it, and i watched it. It's not my favorite, but it was OK. The kids were ADORABLE! i don't know how she does it w/ 6 kids the same age and a set of twins though. wow.. poor mom and poor babysitter!
We also watched a old movie called "the bad man" on turner classic movies. It was a western shoot-em-up movie starring Ronald Reagan. I had never seen a movie starring Reagan. Its so funny to think that a old movie star became president! It was a good movie though. The dialogue was hilarious.























We don't have cable, so it's fun to watch it when we go on vacation. Sort of a treat!:) But i think if we did have it, we couldn't get away from it!


I love watching the cooking shows. I usually watch Rachel Ray, because she's the one who's on the most. She talks way too much! She's a good cook though. he he

The next day we walked on the beach. It was COLD! the water was so rough! there was like no room to walk on the beach because it came all the way up! Once or twice it got so rough it came up right where we were and came up to our waists! that made it even colder. it was nice!! (half sarcastically!:) It was a nice experience...?!

But, over all, it was a very nice trip!!It'll be hard to get back into the "groove" though. hehe! have a nice week...

Seashells- Take 2:)


Okay, way back when I posted about my seashell collections. Since then, I've been pretty busy! We had SAT testing (Standford achievement test) at school, so I'm very happy it's over now! Finally, I am posting some pictures!

















This is some of my collection...

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>


















I find each shell so fascinating! I love the colours God used in all the shells! Notice the different shapes, lines, and colours in each shell. Every shell is different! I love the nautilus shell, near the middle.



<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>





















Some of them remind me of a different kind of giraffe print...

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>><<><><><><><><><><><><><>








Beautiful scallop shells... what awesome colors!

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><

Sea shell, sea shell, Sing a song for me. Sing about the ocean Tell me about the sea.

Have a fabulous Saturday, and a great rest of the week!:~)

We can do it + seashells

I love this picture!! This past week has been a very big transition time for our family. If you haven't heard, we are about to put our house up for the market by the end of the week. I have been pretty shocked at how fast this has come, but I am very thankful that my dad has a job. He will leave in April to train in Pittsburgh, for 3-6 months, which will be even harder without him. But, We just have to remember Philippians 4:13. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

Please pray for our family, as we are going through this big time of adjustment. I know this is not a huge deal, but it is still very hard on us. Thank you!
On a brighter note, we had a pretty good, very relaxing weekend, so that was nice. I got together with a couple of my friends, went to church and heard a great sermon, and then went to my grandmothers house for lunch. Nothing beats a grandma's cookin', right? It was very delicious. I always love going to her house! Her house is very cool! My grandfather was a botanist, and a big-time shell collector, so throughout her house she has many inspiring things. I love seashells also! When my grandfather was alive, when we had our 8th birthday, he would give us a collection of shells. There were 13 grandchildren, so it was always a big deal! When our extended family would go to the beach together, he would take us out for hours, looking at shells. Maybe this is why I love seashells and the ocean so much! I love the beautiful colors God put on every single shell, and how they're so different than each other. These are just some pictures of my favorite shells:














I Will post pictures soon of my real shelll collection... just be happy with these for now!:)
Sorry this is a pretty random!

weekend

It's already Monday. Man. The weekend went by too fast. Obviously, I've been pretty busy. Last week was very long. I haven't posted in a while. So therefore, (congratulate me!) I am finally posting.

On Friday night, me and my sister went to babysit a homegroup. It went pretty well, but the children were hyper-er than i expected. (is that a word?)

On Saturday morning, we went to get our picture taken for our new church directory. The photo turned out pretty well, for a not-so-photogenic person like me. Me, Lauren and Caroline matched with our polo dresses. I was so exctited to finally wear spring clothes. OOOHH and the weather. It's gorgeous right now, and has been all weekend. LOVIN the 80 degree weather. After the picture "session", we went to subway and ate healthy.:)

This rest of the day, we cleaned and went to a neighbor's house and went on their amazing zip line across their pond. It was so awesome. You can get harnesed in if you want across the pond, but I didn't. I wasn't very smart and dropped IN the pond. I about died. It was soo cold! I was expecting nice warm water like the weather but no. I dropped in about half-way, so I had to swim across the rest while i was freezing. Not to mention that i was thinking about nasty big fish and snakes. .. but i made it, and did it again (but i didn't drop in that time.) It was a nice experiance...:) They also have another zip line, just across the yard. It's really high up, so you have to get harnessed in. It goes about 50 miles per hour they said. I really loved it! I felt like I was flying... Anyways, that was a blast.

My best friend spent the night, and the next day we went up to the mountains. We went up and down 600 steps to get to a waterfall. We were tired. but it was a very cool waterfall. It was very steep, and was like a waterfall that went over a steep mountain. We went rock and hopping, and then went home, and then i went to my communicant's class. (I'm becoming a member of the church- so that's what it is)

That was just a little update on my weekend.

Thank God Monday is (almost!) over! (T.G.M.I.O) (a new one, right??)

lean on me

We are doing this really fun song in choir at church... Lean on me. I posted a video so you can hear it! I love it.


Sorry, this isn't the best video but i just wanted to show it to you. It's very PREACH-IT Brotherish, but it's really cute and fun to do.


I still haven't figured out how to post a youtube video so it shows up. Any advice?


Well, here's a link.

SnOw DaY

YES!! It snowed last night... About 3-4 inches. And it's beautiful! I haven't been out very much, but I got some videos, and I'm out of school. It's been a 5 day weekend! Yahoo! I was going to have my friend over, but it didn't work out so that kinda stinks. :( I think the snow is better for making snow forts and snowballs more than sledding. hehe- I've already tried! Anyways, I took a couple of videos and pictures. Note: I have a cold, so I sound pretty nasally.:D Enjoy!

video

Notice the paw prints in the snow!:)


















Isn't the sky lovely? I think it makes a beautiful contrast against the pale white snow. Oohhh pretty!


























The snow looks like a blanket, spread neatly across the yard. Its so gorgeous! Unfortunately, It's starting to melt right now... :(




video

Another video of lucy... isn't she adorable? hehe. she's lovin the snow



My sister made snow cream... YUM!! All it is:
