Weekend of fun

Well this weekend was another crazy fun filled weekend! On Friday I went to go see Hotel Transylvania with my sister and "brother." It was so funny and it's not just a kids movie. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes to laugh! Adam Sandler as Dracula! Enough said!
Saturday began the marathon of DeMolay events, DeMolay is a youth group for boys 12-21 but there are also girl representatives which is what I am. First in the morning I went to my league's soccer event, which unfortunately only about five people showed up to... But never the less we had a lot of fun and I again realized why I don't play sports. Could it be because I have no coordination, am totally out of shape or maybe I just stink! Who knows haha. But after the epic soccer tournament, my mom drove me and my friend Milo out to Redlands for their chapter's installation of officers. (Chapters are like troops and installations are when the officers get officially installed into their offices.) 
Then afterwards we all drove to Anaheim for their installation. And let me say: wow! There were so many people there! This kid's family was well connected because the pageant girls, city council members and even the mayor was there! And not to mention, a news crew! Afterwards there was a dance and the DJ had intense speakers and bass and it was so much fun! By the time I got home I crashed and slept until almost noon on Sunday!
To end the weekend on Sunday evening my sister and I drove out to Marina Del Ray and got to witness our God brother Erick's final wish come true. His ashes were shot off in a beautiful fireworks show while serenaded by a recording of him singing Fly Away. A group of his closest friends had been working diligently to raise funds for this, it was so incredible and I am so happy that we got to give him something that he never thought that he would be able to have. He definitely went out with a bang. RIP Erick. Love you!

Thanksgiving Break!

As we all know, Thanksgiving is only two days away! It's so crazy that it came this fast! Honestly, I think Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It's not commercialized like Christmas. I know I refuse to listen to Christmas music or watch the movies before Thanksgiving, it really makes me mad that this amazing holiday is always just brushed aside! It's just a day where you take the time to be with your loved ones and to truly be thankful for everything you have in your life. It's easy to criticize and complain that you don't have everything you want in life, but it is far more difficult to realize that you have so much more then you actually think and that you should be grateful for everything that you do have. Gratitude is the most powerful force on the planet, but it is not a power that everyone knows how to wield. So, my challenge for each and everyone of you is to write a list everyday of 10 things you are grateful for having and to say thank you for each of them. 
Well, all touchy feelly aside, I hope you all have an amazing holiday and enjoy eating a lot! Because I know I will!!!

Senior Photos!!!!!!

This Saturday my amazing friend Mi-Lo was kind enough to spend about three hours running around with me taking close to 900 photos!!! It was so much fun and I felt amazing!

The photos came out absolutely amazing and I am so thankful that I have a friend that was willing to let me do this an feel beautiful and special. It was so much fun!!!

Just an update :)

     Hey everyone, I just felt that my blog needed some updating because I don't always know what to post that is exciting or scintillating because honestly, my life isn't really that exciting. So there will be random updates like this one!
     This past Sunday, Oct. 28th my sister and friend Ashley hatched a plot and surprised my by taking me to Knott's Scary Farm to make up for the fact that I was unable to go to the concert that was my birthday present. We drove down, partying and rocking out to some awesome music. Then as we drew closer to our destination my sister blindfolded me. Her and Ashley helped me to walk all the way from the parking lot to the front gate completely blind. Once we reached the front they let me go and I could hear them laughing and I just assumed it was from the odd looks I was receiving. But then I heard a voice behind me say "you can take the blindfold off now." I was confused as I pulled down the scarf around my eyes and turned around. There behind me was my friend Sean. I couldn't help but squeal and hug him.
     The rest of the night was so much fun! I made Sean go on supreme scream and pony express with me (unfortunately all the other lines for rides were way to long!) We went through a bunch of mazes and I got scared a lot considering that I'm a really big chicken when it comes to things popping out at me; then we got to watch the hanging which was absolutely hysterical and over the top for the 40th anniversary of Knott's Scary Farm. They made fun of absolutely everyone and everything from Batman to One Direction to the presidential candidates and in the end Robert Patterson hung Kristen Stewart as Snow White. All in all it was an amazing night and the first time I've celebrated my birthday in October!
     Well that's really just what I wanted to share, it's something that made me really happy and showed me how awesome my friends are. Another example of which is that tomorrow my friend Milo is doing my senior photos completely free! (Well sort of, I'm paying him in food haha) I'm super excited and will be sure to post a link to the photos so you guys can see his awesome photography, and if you wanna see me and what I look like that's gonna be there too lol. I hope you all have a wonderful day and will be writing soon!
