I can't wait to...

Helllooo summer!

Yesterday, I got out of school! I kinda have mixed feelings about it, but am excited. The year went by pretty fast. I'm defintely going to miss my teachers, and the 8th graders, but not my grade! Mannn I'm happy to get away from them. Ha! It was sweet though, I had to leave a little early and when I left, everyone came and gave me a hug. AAWWWW!~ My cousin was in my class this year, so that was cool. Maybe I'll be back next year, who knows! everything is up in the air. That's what I dont' like about this moving thing. We don't know what the heck we'll do for school! Anyways, I don't want to get into that subject again. It' been an ok year. Yesterday, We had a class party, so we just ate sundaes and signed yearbooks. That was nice...

This summer, I can't wait to... (in no particular order)
  • Get a tan.
  • Be with my dad.
  • Go swimming. Our apartment we'll be staying in has a swimming pool. we haven't been a member of a pool in forever, so it'll be fun!
  • Make some strawberry lemonade
  • Pick some more strawberries
  • possibly go water skiing. Never been before, but I'd love to if we get the chance!
  • Go shopping.
  • Go to the cheesecake factory. My math teacher has always told me it was so good and that I should go. So, Ms. Goodson, I'll try to go to the cheesecake factory for you!:0)
  • Eat an orange cream sicle
  • Eat some shrimp
  • buy some ice cream from the ice cream man
  • bicycle
  • visit mueseums
  • go to the beach. I don't know if we will be going this year, but it would defintely be nice!
  • Relax
  • read some good books.
  • make some yummy meals
  • go fishing. :)
  • go to my grandmother's cabin
  • wear flipflops
  • Buy some cute summer outfits!

whew! And there's more, but I can't think of them right now...

So, "let summer begin!"

I think this is a very touching song.

Yesterday, I had field day at school, which is where the whole entire school (K-8th) goes out on the field, and divides up in teams. We do a ton of different games and relays, and make up cheers and all. It was fun!:) We also had a half day, and so me, my mom, and sisters went to the farmer's market for some fresh veggies, and out for lunch.

Then we went shopping. We went to this cute little shop downtown called the Snob Shop. (Funny name, I know!) I couldn't find anything for a while, but I finally got sucess! I found a white sleeveless lily polo shirt, (for a lot cheaper than normal price!:) and some giraffe print shorts. I was very happy~! I haven't been able to find clothes in a while, (that I like) so I was blessed!

We have done a lot today! My dad came home last night! It was so good to see him! Today, we went to pick strawberries, since the weather was so nice. We picked about 4 gallons. Yum! I love strawberries, and they're healthy. And, I've heard they help whiten teeth! (I don't know if that's true or not-- anybody know?)

Than, we went home, changed clothes, and went to meet my grandmother for lunch. We went out sorta in the middle of nowhere, in Amish county.There is this store run by some Amish people called "Shiloh General store and deli". It's a very neat store, and we got some delicious sandwhiches. They make THE best bread! It's a very cool atmosphere. It's not every day you see a horse and buggy drive by! Outside of the store, they had a box with free kittens inside. They were sooo cute! I wanted one (kinda) but not right now, since we are trying to move.

We also went to OldNavy in the mall. They were having their $1 for flipflops sale. Unfortunately, it was really picked over and there wasn't at all much left. O well!

Maybe I'll post some pictures later of the day... Have a great long weekend, and Happy Memorial day!

Grandma's party!:)

So we had my grandmother's 80th birthday party yesterday. It was a lot of fun! We had about 22 people over (including us). It was a little cold and rainy, but we have a rather large screened in porch, which sufficed perfectely! We were planning on having a croquet game going on, but that didn't work out. Everyone wore colorful dresses, and looked cute!:)

My grandmother looked like a queen. She was wearing her straw hat with a black ribbon and her beautiful jewelry. On top of the hat she wore a tiara. How adorable!???

The food was delicous! Especially the caramel pound cake... My sister's good friend's mom is a cake decorater, and she made THE best cake I think I have ever eaten. It was delicious! There was also punch and strawberries. There was a lot more food, but I listed most of it in my last post.

Of course, my lovely embarassing aunt's decided they wanted to make me play my violin. How nice! ? O well.. It was fine but I wasn't too thrilled because I was just enjoying drinking me punch and caramel cake!:)

Ohh here's a funny story---after a while, I got a little bit tired of all the people in one room. so I decided I needed some quietness. (I think that's a word.??) Maybe it's silence. O anyways.. So I went downstairs where our dog lucy was was put (so she wouldn't bother the old ladies.) It was really nice and quiet there, so I started to talk to the dog. Yes, I do talk to dogs. Am I insane? No. I know they don't understand what I'm saying, but sometimes its nice to talk to the dog. Because they have no answer.:) SO i was just doing my own thing when I heard "ABBBYY?" (me) "what?" and I looked up stairs. There was no one there. So I went all the way down the steps, and saw Lauren curled up on a chair.

(me) "Did you hear me talking to the dog?"
(Lauren) "yea but it's okay. I came down here to talk to her too!

HA! I thought that was funny. And i'm glad I'm not the only one who talks to the dog.

It was a lot of fun. I'm sure my grandmother and her friends will be talking about this for years:!)

Happy Monday!

share-a-song and decluttering!:)

Yardsale!! Lauren decided she wanted to get rid of a lot of her old clothes and junk she never used. Than the rest of the family caught on, and we made a pile by the door of what we wanted to get rid of. On Friday, we decided we'd have a yardsale. My friend miriam came over and she sold some stuff too.:) We have some funny stories about this yardsale.. Yesterday, (Saturday) it was a little bit rainy, but that didn't stop the customers! We sold A LOT of stuff! Mainly, clothes, jewelry scarves, headbands, and stuffed animals. (didn't sale much of the latter!:) I am thankful that people showed up even on a cloudy Saturday morning, because we made a lot more money than we expected!

After the sale, we made a run to goodwill for the leftover's.

Hooray for getting rid of junk! I feel like I had a lot of clothes I didn't wear that were just sitting sadly in the closet. Know at least someone's enjoying them (hopefully!:)

Today we are having my Grandmother's 80th Birthday party! It's going to be a garden theme, because she has always loved gardening. We are having a caramel pound cake, cucumber sandwhiches, crab dip, punch, spanakopita. I'm sure it will be fun!

We are going to the evening service at church tonight because we have to get ready.

Now, for Share-A-Song Sunday's!

weekend back-up and tired thursday's

I just realized that I never posted about my weekend. LAST weekend. Wow I'm behind..

The shakesphere play- I know I mentioned me playing my violin in it, but I don't never if i told much about it. well it was so much fun! Anually, my school has a huge play, which we work on throughout the year. This year, our play was "As you like it."

I played the part of a lady-in-waiting. I had a fairly small speaking part. At least I had something, right? And at least I got to put on a costume, and makeup. I had a blast though. I guess the excitement of it all was mainly why.

After the play, we went to some friend's house, watched "What about Bob" (weirdly funny movie-- soo totally 80's though!) And then went to pick up my dad at the air port. It was about 11:30 when we got there. It was soo good to see him!

The next day we went to the celtic festival. Very intersting. There was-- let's just say a very WIDE variety of different types of people. It was a little bit disturbing. A lot of goths with spiked chocker necklaces, pink hair, and kilts. And many hippies. All in kilts. *cringe* the music and icecream was good though!:)

That night we went out to eat for greek food. It was delicious! aww man it was good. Greek is like my new favorite cuisine now!

Sunday was Mother's Day! we made my mom lunch, got her roses and cards, and went for a Sunday afternoon jog. I was training for running the mile. Right after that, my dad had to leave. :( I was really sad...

Anyways, we had a good weekend. Forgive me for not posting about it.

Yesterday, we had to run the mile in P.E. Omigoodness... it makes me more tired than I already am just thinking about it. After school, I hung out with Dee Dee, went to Borders and looked at funny books. Then came back for a church picnic. Wednesday's are officially over.:( mannn what am I going to do on Wednesday's any more?

Today nothing eventful has happend. I am sooo tired. I think I might go take a nap... Yea that would be nice. Sorry for an unusually long post!

share-a-song sundays

Well yesterday, me and Lauren went to the nail salon. I got a manicure in bright pink, and Lauren got a pedi.

I've been looking at my nails a lot. They're so shiny!:) I could never be a nail person. When I paint mine, I always end up picking them off because they're so globby. The guy who did my nails didn't say more than about 10 words the whole time, and the rest of the time he was talking to himself in chinese. I was a little bit scared, because he could've been talking about my awful cuticals. AHH! they were scary before he messed with them. I do not do much with my nails. I felt very pampered.

Go see a funny video at
Lauren's blog about manicures. Have you ever seen bon qui qui? It's the same girl who does that who has a show.

Last night, we had some friends over and did some excercise dvds. They were a blast, and a workout! Belly dancing was... errr... funny! We also watched some funny rhett and link videos. Go see a funny one on
Caroline's blog...

Well today, I went to both services at church. I did because my mom and I got up early to go to the 8:30 service (actually we didn't get up very early... we got up about 30 minutes before we had to go. Long story, but NOT a smart idea! ) My sisters came later, so I sat through with them again, because my mom had to go to a funeral for one of her relatives. I didn't mind sitting through again, but the second service I was soo tired.

Caroline wasn't feeling well, and so she got up in the middle of church and left for a long time. I decided I'd go check on her, because it had been about 15 minutes. Her stomach was hurting, and I wasn't sure what to do. So i went back in, passed notes with lauren for about 5 minutes, persuading her to go check on Caroline. It probably looked pretty funny, because we all got up about twice during the sermon, and it took forever. Long story, but thats pretty much how it happened. I'm glad caroline's doing better though!

Bleh. I am exhausted. And it's a cloudy day out. Not looking forward to going back to school, where I have to do presidential fitness training. Whew. And I'm having a bad hair day.

Anyways, here's a great song! I got the pleasure of singing it twice today at church..

Hope you have a lovely, relaxing Sunday!
