We Made It.

We're alive.
The worst of the storms flew passed us..We never entered the basement.
Although there is still rain, it'll be okay. We're keeping close watch on the radar :)

But..I'm tired..
As far as I know, we will have school tomorrow.
So I have to get up in 5 hours.

Georgia Rain

Well, you've most likely heard, but just in case that you live in a rock..And you haven't heard..

Pretty much the entire Northwest regions of Georgia are either under a Tornado Watch or Tornado Warning.
Calhoun, Adairsville (where my bestfran and her family are located.), Cartersville..And other regions surrounding are experienceing terrible damage or will experience it soon.

Prayers please.

Also, about 3 hours ago..This huge Cyclone hit Tuscaloosa, AL. University Of Alabama (The Crimson Tide) was damaged horrificly. It moved towards Birmingham. About 40 fatalites.
It also hit Gadsden (where my family is located) everyone is safe though. BUT severe damage!

******We are headed to the basement******

If you are in the Georgia/Alabama region, my heart goes out.

Conclusions Of The Weekend & The Beginning Of A New Week

I have to say, this was a nice..Peaceful weekend. I didn't go anywhere [for once]. But it was nice.

Me and the Parents, just..Chilled.
I became addicted to Tumblr. && mine doesn't look like a failure anymore :)
The backyard is a weee-bit closer to being done.
I mastered some wonderful Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies AND Crinkle Cookies.
I recieved my letter from Cali :) Made me haaaaaaaaaappy.
I have found some awesome inspiring bedroom looks for my basement bedroom..
I ordered a new comforter..Its great.
Mom leaked what she's getting me for 8th grade graduation. Haha. I feel so cheesy.
I have realized that Adele is just an amazing musical artist. [Set Fire To The Rain is my favorite song by her]

This week should be pretty interesting. Its the last week of April..So..Its getting to the end of the school year [thank goodness], and so grades are done, and the chilling begins.
The dance is coming up in two weeks. I have to get my dress altered, order my shoes, and find a gorgeous necklace to complete the look. I have a hair appointment on Thursday. Which, I am SUPER excited about because I think I have figured out what I want my hair to look like..

hairstyles for medium length hair Long Hair Cuts That Give Shape to Thick Hair I just love the bangs..I don't think I'm gonna go that short though, because I have tried so hard to get my hair to the length it is right now, and I want it to keep growing. But its just going to get an inch or so off, because of split ends and all. But I'm excited about a visit to Shag Salon :)

Well. I'm off to bed :) Night.

A Mixed Up Tuesday's Thoughts.

Have any of you noticed that right now is the perrrrrrrrrrrr-fect weather for camping?
Well. If not, it is.

I would give anything to not be in Georgia right now..&& with..
Jordan & His family.
Bill & Faye.
Uncle Tom :) aka..My other father.
Uncle John. Mhmm :)
Annnnd..All the other lovely people I camp with at Thanksgiving. 

I don't know what the point of the post is..-But, here lately..I have been keeping the saying, "Everything Happens For A Reason." in mind, sooo..- Maybe, just maybe..I might go camping soon :) It'd be amazing. It would give me a chance to 'take care of things that needed to be taken care of a looooooong time ago'...Make. New. Memories...Get away from 'the daily grind'...Spend time with the second family and close -very close- friends.

I miss them all. And if any of you are reading this *InsertSmileys&Winkeys*, I would love to inform you of the fact that I love you & I miss you :)


Ah..Today just was not a good day, but yet..It wasn't bad? I don't know. But I just know that nothing good came from it, except the meeting and dinner afterwards..But I do know, that I didn't get completely depressed OR pissed off, *AtAll*..Hahahaha. Ha. Haha..Ha. 

Well, tomorrow's exam is Math. And I know for sure that I will not be going to 9th grade, because I know nothing about Math and I will fail. Epicly.

Well..Goodnight :)

April 17th

April happenings:

Spring Break
Final tests for High School
The Memorial (which is tonight)
Mine and Kesia's "Friend-iversay" (April 15, 2010)
Summer gets a tad bit closer & we all start whining just a little bit more for it to hurry.

&& a few other things..

Anyway..Its a very busy month, as you can see. Pretty much every weekend I have something planned. [But that's pretty good, though.]

First Weekend- I was in Gadsden.
Second Weekend- I was in Chicago :]
Third Weekend- [Current] KyLeigh came over Friday, Jasmin's girls night was last night, and Memorial is tonight.
Fourth Weekend- It will be Miss Kristen's weekend. Because we haven't hung out in a looong time..Cause for spring break, she was on a cruise.
Fifth Weekend- The Bestfran's house. She knows who she is ;]

Obviously, I'm a busy 14 year old.

Anyway, more about this weekend. Last night..Jasmin curled my hair :] It felt great..I don't have any pictures as of right now. But you can check out this post  to see what it looked like. We watched Outsourced after eating some yummy Quesidillas courtesy of me and Jasmin :]

More about today.. As you read earlier, tonight is The Memorial. [At 7:45]. But in the present time.. I have been helping dad with the gardena and getting the backyard straightened up. Oh my..Is it hot outside. :[ But my hair is still a bundle of curls and I really wish I could leave it like this for tonight, but I don't think its gonna happen. I'll just have my same old, plain straightened hair. Boo.

Okay..That's all for now :]

How sweet is that? She's obviously a veryy, veryy goooood friend :) I replied..

One of those days..

Those days where you really don't wanna have anything to do with anyone, BUT yourself..You get really upset -very easily..Everyday things [putting on makeup, figuring out what to wear, cleaning, etc..] annoys you. Yeah..That's been me. All. Day. [Eeekk..]

Ugh..I guess it could be due to the fact that we didn't get home til 12am this morning from Chicago, because of the weather and all. [Btw, scariest car ride of my life. No lie.] Anyway, yeah..I got very little sleep. On top of that..It was my first day back from Spring Break, and I swear it hit my like a freight train..I can't stand school. I just really don't know how I'm gonna make it four more years. Oh geez.

*PositiveThinking* I'll do great. I have great friends that'll get me through high school.

Okay. I'm going to bed. [And yes, I am very aware that this post makes no sense at all. Just ignore it. And never, ever speak of it again. K? Thanks.]

BTW. Just to make this day worse. My phone broke. DEAR GOD. Worst. Day. Ever.

Sunday, April 10, 2011


So, I have decided that I want to do a little "Weekly..Post? Type thingy?"..Obviously its going to be called *SomethingNewSunday*..

Well, we all know the phrase, "You learn something new everyday." Right? Well..There are probably A LOT of things you learn about yourself in a week. Since Sunday is like the ending/beginning of a new week, I figured I could just post a few things I learned about myself, and then all of you lovely followers can link up in the comments column and play along. I think it'd be great...Soo...Here we go.

What I have learned...

1. I really, really want to make it my goal to visit the Chicago beach this summer. I want to so bad -hence, the picture I used for this week. Isn't it just gorgeous? And, it would just be beyond amazing to visit it with..Ms. Kesia :) And I know she agrees..Haha.

2. I love brunch..Being in Chicago..Well, more importantly, on vacation, you don't really wake up early? Right? So you never really get to eat a correct breakfast, soooo..You have a brunch. And Chicago is just the Brunch Central..Its great. And now, I'm obsessed. 

3. I can work pastel colors...I got an adorable pink, polo-ish shirt from H&M yesterday..I can totally work it.

4. I am addicted to music. I cannot live without it. 

5. My "black skinny jeans" aren't black. They're navy blue. I have been living a lie. Its very depressing..And also it made me feel uncoordinated because I was wearing black flats and..They just didn't match at all...

Well, there you have it folks! There will be more facts on different weeks..Just depends. :) If you would like to play along, you can just link up in the comments section! [I'd love that, fyi]



Instead of going to Kesia's for the weekend like mentioned in the previous posts..

Mommy called me and said, "Pack your bags. Mommy, Jessie, and Kari are going to see Oprah!" 
My first thought: OMG. I haven't been to Chicago in FIVE YEARS. Holyyy cow.
So, I, of course..Got out my suitcase, and started a'packing. :) Mom did get to see Oprah, but while she was at Harpo Studios..Me and Papi..
-Went and had brunch at Wishbone.
-Went shopping.
-Went to the Shedd Aquarium.

Then..We met back up with the crew and went to Wishbone for an afternoon snack [The Mac-N-Cheese is fantastic..For those of you if you ever are on Washington Ave. in Chicago..] :)

Then we dropped off Uncle Jessie [Thaaaaaaaaaaat's my maaaan! :)] and headed back to Rachael and Kari's place..And did nothing for the rest of the evening. Ha! Although, we had some fantastic pizzas from Trader Joes, watched some lovely Glee re-runs, and snoozed. Haha. 
This morning, we got up..Rachael and Kari went on a few studies, but me, Mommy, Papi, and Uncle Jessie went and had a lovely brunch at Lou Mitchell's [if you would like to eat here..MAKE RESERVATIONS. You will not believe how big of a difference this makes. If not..You'll end up outside of the resturaunt waiting for a loooooong while..], but it was some great food. 

After that..Uncle Jessie and Papi dropped me and Mommy off downtown and we shopped..[And to be honest, of all the hundreds of times I have came to Chicago, I have only like went shopping downtown, ONCE. Terrible, right?] We only had time to go to H&M, Tiffany's [ooh-la-freaking-la], and XXI Forever...[Aka, FOREVER 21..] The sign here, actually says, "XXI Forever"..So adorable. But the reason we didn't have enough time to shop 'til we dropped is because..

Rachael and Kari, being the total sweethearts they are..Decided to kidnap just me for the rest of the day..Annnnd, took me to a High Tea at The Ritz Carlton on E. Peirson..Oh. My. Goodness. [Ah-mazing.] It was one of the greatest experiences ever. So fancy, peaceful, and shabby chic. I totally recommend it for a "Girl's Day Out"..I had Bombay Chai tea..They also bring you a 3-tiered platter with many treats..Finger Sandwiches, Pastries, and Biscuits. So lovely
And after that, we went to Skydeck Chicago..Oooh..Amazingness..

Anyway..I'm just chilling in my bed..Thinking about how tomorrow is our last day..So brunch in the morning and then last minute treks around town to get a few more pictures..:)

I am happy to say that I've had an amazing Spring Break 2011.

Here's to good friends, family, and traveling.

P.S..@ Kesia..Thank you for my lovely shout-out :) I love you girl, and I totally miss you too. Annnd..I can't wait til our AMAZING trip up here this summer. IT. WILL. HAPPEN. :D

Tuesday, April 5, 2011


Before you start assuming things about the title of the post, let me just go ahead and say its referring to like..Scratching something off a list, kay? Kay.

Anyway..Back to the point of the post..

As you read in the previous post, I was supposed to go see Secondhand Serenade this weekend..Welll..Those plans kind of got squished.
So, as I was freaking out tremendously, Kesia..Being the great friend and all..Consoled me. :') She brought up the idea of Coming to her house for the weekend, going to her JOB and using HER store credit [hehe, marvelous] then making a Target run..A goodwill run..All those lovely places in Cartersville..Oh! And the 1.50 movie here in Calhoun. Wonderful idea? I think yes. :)

By the wayy..She will be driving me, officially, for the first time..Legally. Pshh..We're cool :D

SO. I'm excited. And I'm really wishing that this sloooooooooooooow, boooooooooooooooring week will HURRY.

Like, seriously, I'm not doing anything else that cool, except going to Zumba tomorrow and Thursday morning. Haha. Like a bosssss. XD

What Makes Me Happy..
