Michael ♥ Buble

His concert was AMAZING! I absolutely loved it! I think I might have loved the live band almost as much as I loved seeing Michael....almost ;)

I mean just look at that face......he's incredibly charming. What better way to complete a girl's night out, than by throwing Michael Buble into the the schedule?? I can't think of a better way.....can you?

Mama Lou - I'll miss you

This week hasn't started out the way I would want it to. Sunday, I found out that my great-grandmother, Elizabeth (she is known to my family as Mama Lou), died some time Saturday night. This was extremely hard to hear, considering the fact that K├Ąte, Mom, Dad and I were all headed to visit her in just a week. I wish I could have actually met her at least once, but it was all in God's timing.

I'm trying to distract myself so I won't think about that or anything remotely sad. Last night I had a great time with my friends at Mandy's house! Can anyone say "Stir-fry and lettuce wraps"??? She did an amazing job, and if you go to her blog, you can see a few pictures of her delicious creations!

Pedicures were also on the to-do list. We thought it would be fun to go and primp before we go to the MICHAEL BUBLE concert on Wednesday night. I cannot wait! Then it's just a few more days til my sisters leave for the Challenge Conference in Ohio, and then we get to fly to Seattle!

just not fast enough

Tonight was definitely a good night. I hung out with one of my good friends and together we babysat my youth pastor's two daughters.....which actually turned into babysitting one. Q (the oldest by 4 months) got real excited that people came to see her and decided to stay up a half hour later than her little sister. After playing endlessly, looking like idiots trying to keep Q entertained, making the wierdest noises ever...she finally went down and we got to have some much-needed chat time :)

And now it's like a girls night at my house (oh wait! It's like that every night!) Ah yes.....the excuse to eat however much of whatever we want, the only time we can walk around the house with green goo on our faces because we're trying the latest facial mask and a good reason to stay up late in front of the television.

While I absolutely LOVE these times, I can't help but look forward to this weekend and how much I wish it had already passed. Between working late both nights and both of my best friends being out of town having more fun than me, things just aren't looking up. I'll make it through alright......just not fast enough :/

Visual Aid

Ok so I know for a fact that I have said more than once "I'll put a picture up here soon!". Sadly, I am the type of person that says I'll do something....and then it never gets done! So this post is all about redeeming myself

This was me at prom! and another even cooler picture.....

Need I say more?
I promise I'll put pictures up when I say I will....I'm turning over a new leaf

Nights like these

There were so many possibilities. Have a fun night out with my best friend....go to a party/concert....go visit with a few other friends. None of them happened! Perhaps I didn't try hard enough, who knows.

So instead of choosing one of those wonderful activities with my amazing friends...I wound up staying at home. I actually sat in this old chair I've got in the corner of my room with the lights off. I was alone...and I had a 5-minute pity party. But that was earlier this evening. It's 11:30 and it hasn't progressed one bit.

I drove myself to Sonic and ordered a delicious Sonic Blast (with Reese's Peanut butter cups)...for one :/ I came home and planted myself on the couch down in my basement. Instinctively, I reached for the remote, turning on the television and flipping through channels just waiting for something to catch my eye. After about an hour of searching, I finally settled on a cheesy romantic Hallmark movie. What would I do without them??

what now?

Whew!! The graduation madness is finally over! I'll admit it was really very stressful and tiring, but I had a blast! My family (whom I haven't seen in a few years) came in to town to help me celebrate that weekend and that made it even more special for me!

So what am I doing now that school is over with and I supposedly have nothing to do?? Well, I am actually doing quite a bit! I'm working a few nights during the week - that's always 'fun'. I've been doing some necessary cleaning.....hitting the pool :D ya know....the works!
