Life Update

Okay, I have been absolutely HORRIBLE at blogging. I’m not going to make excuses for why I haven’t been blogging, I’ve been plain lazy! Admitting this is pretty hard for me, but I want to make sure I’m being 100% honest.

Phew! Alright, now that I have that off my shoulders, I can dive into what’s been goin’ on. So, since my last post, I have graduated from eighth grade (that still sounds weird), started summer school at my high school (by choice ;)), and then finished summer school! I have met sooooo many new people and more to come I’m sure! So far, summer has been a blast. I have been through my ups and downs for sure but for the most part, I’ve had more ups! I’d love to hear about how your summer has been too!

As I’m sitting here writing this, I’m a little down. During the summer, I spend time with my mom and dad. As much as I prefer the former, I have to deal with the latter too! Switching back and forth is definitely hard for me. To say the least, my dad and I love to argue! It’s really hard to leave my home for a week at a time, so that’s why I’m a little down. I’m trying to make the best of things, but at first it’s tough. I mean really tough! If any of you can relate, I’d love to hear from you! So, enough of that! It felt really good to get that out, and I can promise that there won’t be too many more posts like this.

Thanks for reading, and stay tuned for some more upbeat and summer-y posts!


Next Stop: Graduation!

Wowza! It seems like forever since I have been in here. I have been so busy with my eighth grade year. We have one final even before we head to Washington D.C.. Two weeks ago we had a ceremony were we crowned a statue of Mary (Catholic school tradition). I have a few pictures that I’d like to share from that! My dress is from Altered State. If you haven’t been there, be sure to check it out. Everything smells AMAZING!

Madelyn and GriffinMadelyn and WillMay Crowing 1May Crowning qMay Crowning May Crowning is a big deal for the eighth grade. We all get to dress up, and I love dressing up! We go on a whole class picnic after the ceremony too! After this we have field day, our D.C. trip, then last stop: GADUATION! Over all, my eighth grade year has been amazing. I have become closer with a lot of people, and I’m really excited to spend the next four years with some of my best friends.

Happy Easter

Hi everyone! I want to wish everyone a very happy Easter. Today is the BIGGEST day in the whole year they say! I’ve had a pretty good Easter so far, and I though I’d give a quick recap. I snapped this picture of my youngest brother. He had a blast actually looking for his eggs this year!IMG_4517

Pizza was the one thing that I’ve really been wanted over Lent. The “Easter Bunny” brought me some this morning. It hit the spot. Then, the little kids had an egg hunt. The Easter Bunny was good to them this year :). After the egg hunt, we went to church, then a late afternoon brunch. These are the highlights of my Easter. Now, were just going to relax, then I’m going to go to my mom’s house yay! We haven’t spent a lot of time together lately, so I’m really excited!



Why I Started Blogging

Today’s post is a little different. I wanted to let you all know why I started bogging. I’m really excited to share with you, the little story of how I became a blogger.

My friend Kate had invited me to go to another blogger’s event. I was really excited because I hadn’t done anything like this before! The event was at Saks Fifth Avenue-fancy! We got our makeup and hair done, and tried on a bunch of different perfumes. Then, we sat down, and watched Beth (the blogger) give her “presentation” on her most liked outfits. I learned so much!

Why I Started Blogging

I’m literally obsessed with this photo from that night! We used a ring light to take the picture, and let me just say, THEY ARE AMAZING! After all of the events of the night I was pretty inspired. I wanted to start a blog just for the fun of it, and just see what would happen. So far I’m loving it! Special thanks to Kate for introducing me to the world of blogging!



I’m Back!

Wow guys I’m finally back! I’m so so sorry for the lack of posts this week. My Wi-Fi was out all week-boo, so I wasn’t able to get my posts up this week. Starting now, I will hopefully get my daily posts up. Once again, I’m so sorry. Stayed tuned for some awesome new posts.

Upcoming Events!

Wow! It has been such a crazy week so far- and it’s only Tuesday! I have such a crazy schedule for these next coming months. I have my Washington D.C. trip in May, May Crowning (Catholic School Tradition), and tomorrow I pick my classes for high school! More on that tomorrow. My school also has a few events of their own that I’m helping out with, so basically I will be nonstop until June 1-graduation day!

I am absolutely ecstatic about graduating. I know eight grade graduation isn’t as big as high school, or even college, but I’ve been at this school since I was 5. Leaving this place will be a bitter-sweet experience. Leaving some of my life long friends is going to be SO hard, but I’m so excited to see what high school has in store for me.

I have been to D.C. before, but going with my class will be super fun. My friend Kate from fromanamericangirl is there right now, so go check out her adventures. I’m most excited about May Crowning because we get to wear beautiful Spring dresses. Dresses at always exciting.

Stay tuned for more details on these events!


Weekend Roundup!

This weekend was pretty relaxing. First, I went to the first fish fry of the season. It was kind of hard to eat the fish, (due to Paleo) but I made due! After that we went to my little brother’s basket ball banquet. There was a magician (he preferred illusionist) there and he was pretty amazing! We came home and I caught up on a little reading.

Saturday was pretty laid back as well. We “chilled out” for a little while until I had to go to my volleyball practice. It wore me out! Then we had some hamburgers for dinner. Yummy!

Sunday was my mom’s birthday. I celebrated with her, by going out to brunch. Then, she took me to my last volleyball game. (We lost) Then we came home and relaxed, did some homeowork, and got ready for the coming week!
