Hey!!!!!!!! Where did I leave off before I forgot that I had a blog..... haha :)
Thanks giving was great! Ate lots of food! No one came over or anything, just hung out around the house. December has been really busy! All of my classes got harder and harder and I got really stressed out and busy with orchestra, school, church, family... all that jazz. Today was the last day of school for the semester and all I gotta say is I'm sooo glad its OVER!!!!!! Finals are stressing.
Heather, Dane, and Jonathan are coming for Christmas! Dane's family is driving down here to be with one of Dane's sisters and so we get to see Heather even though its technically the "spouses" turn for Christmas. Next Christmas will be the best because Spencer and Suzanne will be off their missions and then the whole family is coming back here for Christmas!!!!!!! It will be amazing :)
I just gotta say really fast that I am so grateful for all of the experiences that I go through and for all that my friends, leaders, and family do for me. High school can be really tough and its always good to know that you have people that you can count on to encourage you and to get you through the hard times in life.
Well tonight we are going to see The Hobbit... I hear that everyone wants to go and see it... I guess I'm just not much of a LOTR fan. I like the music and the movies, but its just a once-a-year kind of movie for me. I'll tell ya how good it is.
I'm super excited for Heather to get here!!!! I can't wait to see her!
I need to post pics of my hair and of all those other things that I keep saying I'll do but never actually get to it. Someday.
I drove for the first time over the weekend! I was in a parking lot with my dad and I drove around in it! :D   I'm a good driver, I think it comes naturally for girls :)
We shall see if I can manage some pics of our visitors and of Christmas sometime soon :)

Hello!! Life is busy busy busy!!! I'll tell you all about whats been happening recently. I'm signed up for the ACT on Dec. 8th. Wish me luck, I'll probably take it another 2 times next semester too. I'm trying to study...
School is hard and busy. I'm doing lots of homework and such, trying to get good grades. I have all A's except for precal and pre-AP physics. I have B's in those. But hey, those classes are tough!!!
Seminary is wonderful, I really like our class and I love the New Testament.
There was a stake dance this past Saturday!!! It was sooooo much fun!!! It was one of those dances that just rocks, seriously! I got all dressed up and I got asked to dance practically every dance! It was amazing :) I took lots of pictures, I will post pictures eventually. We have another dance this Saturday, only its a tri-stake... those dances are not always fun because they always have like a million people and you get really hot and gross and no one can move without touching someone else somewhere akward soooo... yeah. I'm still going of course, it will just be interesting :)
Today it is super duper cold out side... like 39 or 40 degrees!!!!!!!!!! at least, that's cold for me!! haha :)
Halloween was super fun too! I was a sheep!!! I glued a bunch of cotton balls on a white shirt and put some in my hair. I loved my costume! I got lots of pics of that too :) I will post them soon. maybe over thanks giving.
Well, thats all folks! feel free to ask me any questions in the comments if you are wondering about anything else :) tata!

Hello!!! Soo, an update on me: SCHOOL IS HARD AND STRESSFUL! Holy cow! I have lots of work all the time. But recently I have been making really good gades! Like on my last pre-cal I got a 92%!!! that may sound whimpy, but for a person who can't do math its a good grade :)
Seminary is good as usuall, I'm really enjoying it, I've made some new friends from the other wards in the upper classmen class. My teacher is lots of fun, he always makes it exciting and it puts me in a good mood :)
HALLOWEEN!!!!! IMMA GONNA BE A SHEEP!!!!!!!! I'm soooo excited! It was Melanie's idea, so give her credit :) I'll post pics for sure of all that.
Sometimes I kinda hate blogging because all that you people out there get to see is the good stuff. which is not a bad thing, I'm just trying to say that I'm a normal person and my life is not all cupcakes and butterflies, you know?
Well, enough of that :) have a good day!

Hey! I'm at school so I'm going to have to make this quick. I'm in my speech class and I'm writing a speech on "the effects of drugs and alcohol on a baby and her mom".... fun, right?
Seminary is wonderful as usual :)
General Conference was AMAZING this year especially :) I really enjoyed it. I love getting those talks where its like a topic that you have really been praying about and then you finally get the perfect answer! Does that happen to anyone else? Because it happens to me every time :)
Soooo, anyone who is reading this should follow my blog because I love followers!!!
Have a lovely day!

HEY GUYS!!! GUESS WHAT!?!?!?!?!?!?! I HAVE OVER 1,000 PAGE VIEWS!!!!!!!! YAY!
Keep makeing all of your friends look at my blog!
Okay, I'm done :P haha just had to throw that out there :)
any who... soo Saturday I didn't find any good costumes... :( but I think we will go back and look again cause we only looked for like a half hour before we had to leave to build the catapult!
So, the catapult: super fun to build!! I didn't know what I was doing, but the boys did so it was all good :) we built it out of pipes... pbc... or bbc... they said it so fast so I couldn't really tell what they were called. we made it pretty big, it shot the tennis ball 15-20 feet when we tested it. I think we will get a pretty good grade :)
I don't think I mentioned anything about homecoming!!! I'll tell you: My friends and I all got together and had a pre-home-coming-game-party, then we all drove to the game together. It was super intense. it was a home game, we had to go into over time twice! The game ended at midnight haha so I didn't get home till 1 ;) It was really fun :) although, the only really bad part was I didn't get a mum!!!!!! I haven't gotten one for the past years and this year I wanted one, but no one else wanted to make one with me :( BUT, NEXT YEAR I WILL HAVE ONE!!! haha I just think they are so fun!!
This Saturday my friends and I are having a breakfast/game thing all together from like 8-10 AM before conference starts. I'm sooo excited for both the morning and conference!!! I can't wait to hear from the Prophet and all of the other church leaders. I love taking notes and reading them later with the conference talks that come out in the Ensign so I can compare what I heard verses what I read. The next mutual after General Conference our young women's always does Conference jeopardy :) super fun, especially if you take good notes!
Seminary is going really well. I feel like I say that every time I talk about my life is that I'm really liking seminary!!! I don't know why this year its really great... maybe because I'm older and I appreciate it more... I don't know. But any ways, I'm really liking it, (despite my lack of sleep from getting up at at least 5:20 AM every morning) haha but its good for me :)
Pictures... I know. later. I'm soo busy with school right now. you would probably not believe me if I tried to name everything I'm doing.

By the way, I really need to put some pics on here... my hair has gotten soooo much longer! and I have taught myself so many more things with it! I will get to it... just keep bugging me about it then I will get to it. haha :)
Wow. I don't know how many of my posts start with "It's been a while" but this time, I really mean it! Holy cow!
Soooo, school is going good... sort of...
I'm taking alot of Pre-AP and AP classes and they are really loading down on me. Its alot of work and hard work too. I constantly have home work and stuff I'm doing. If any one has any suggestions of how to get everything done and still feel relaxed, PLEASE, tell me!!! I know exercise is good... but that's the thing, I just don't have time to go for a run besides Saturdays. I'm trying to make good grades. I'm also in quite a few clubs that I'm trying to keep track of. I'M SOOO BUSY! this is crazy. last year was soo much easier than this year, but I guess it is to be expected, it is my junior year.
Seminary is going really awesome. We are studying the New Testament this year and I love it!!! My seminary teacher is soo amazing and hilarious! If you know me, I ain't always in the best mood in the morning (never) and so he always puts me in a good mood :)
Tomorrow I'm going to do all of my jobs and homework, then me and my friend, Katie, are going to goodwill to look at Halloween costumes, then Katie and I are going to another friends house, Tanner, to build a catapult for a physics project. its a good thing we have a boy in our group because I have no idea how to build a catapult :) haha
For Halloween I was thinking that I'd be an 80s girl cause then I can do my hair crazy poofy!!! but we will see what I can find at goodwill :) any suggestions? I'm open!

Yes.... I am still alive. okay, I haven't made a post in like a whole month. that's crazy!!! but here I am! okay, I'll give you a run down of my August in list form:
-Went to 7 peaks with Heather, Dane, and Julie
-babysat Jonathan for Heather and Dane's anniversary
-Went to BYU with Melanie, Julie, and Lucy
-Mom, Dad, Brian, and Jenny all got to Utah
-Brian, Jenny, Me, Julie, and some of Jenny's family all went camping in the mountains
-Mom and I went to Temple Square and saw Suzanne
-Dad, Mom, Me, and Julie all drove back to Texas
-I started right on my school summer assignment (reading "Wuthering Heights" and annotating it and memorizing 75 vocab SAT words) finished all of that in one week... most painful week of my life
-I'm in a club where we help the freshmen get to know the school and stuff so I did fish camp
-then school started!

So, that was the wrap up of my summer :) My schedule for school is this:
"A" days
1) speech
2)AP English III
3)US history
and I have A lunch- hooray!!!
"B" days
5)pre-AP physics
6)pre cal
8)child development
I have B lunch- still good!

I'm pretty happy with my schedule, mostly happy that nothing is messed up, I got everything I signed up for :) yay!! although, for the past 2 years I've had A lunch both days, so having B lunch is kinda different, but hey, I'm not complaining because at least its not C or D lunch!
well, that's all for now, pics are coming... maybe... :) haha oh yeah! and there is also seminary, I have the same teacher as last year, only this year they split up the class by grade, upper class men in one class and lower class men in the other. I'm in the the upper class men :) can you believe it??? I'm in the 11th grade!!!!!! crazy!!!!! I feel so old! haha :)
