I Love Fall

Happy fall ya'll!!! As we were returning from a trip, we drove through the mountains and the temperature dropped as we got higher (52 degrees) and when we stopped and got out of the car, it made me realize how much i missed fall!! I am kinda obsessed with boots and pea coats...(some of you have probably realized that already ;)...So i tried really hard to make a fall outfit without boots, but as you will see, i needed my boots.  Where i live its still pretty warm, but has gotten much cooler. (70-75 degrees)  I am hoping that it will cool down, and that our winter will break 40 degrees. Anyway, I designed a cute fall fashion aaaaannnnnndddddd, click HERE to try a wonderfully delicious recipe for pumpkin squares. I always think that their sort of like the fall version of brownies. haha!

The earrings are little fall leaves, and the sweater i thought was the perfect shade of orange :)

Quick Update

Hey guys! This summer has gotten away from me way too quickly, and now I'm starting school again.  I wanted to do a quick update and share some highlights from my summer! :)

  • I went to a week-long piano camp, and enjoyed all the extra help from the wonderful teachers that taught us all!  It was super fun, and I definitely want to do it again next year! :)                                                         (Sorry for the bad lighting.)

My two Aunts visited us for a week and it was so much fun! Their visit included midnight pool parties, hot fudge sundaes and plenty of girly movies :)  

In July, our church had it's annual growth retreat.   We had a really good speaker, and it was a fun time to fellowship and worship. One night i got to play piano with the worship team and that was a blast! :)  (To read about last year's growth retreat click here. )
Our speaker, Eric. and me .......^^^
In the beginning of August, we went to NC to give my sister a bridal shower! :) It was one of the biggest highlights of my summer!! The theme was sort of Italy, so there was yummy pastries and bread and cheese and gelato! (<--Did i spell that right?)
'Love' in Italian <3

The table/centerpieces

Some of the yummy food....

And lastly, I've had a few piano competitions/performances the past couple weeks.
All ready! :)
Well, that was pretty much my summer.  School started about a month ago for us.  How has your summer been?

Hey guys! I apologize for it being way too long since i last posted! Back in early May, we went on a trip to NC for my sister's graduation! It was so much fun! We got to visit lots of family and friends, not to mention celebrate lots of special events!

Me and my sister Mollie

 We were there for a little over a week, but it felt like we were there for two days! One of the days we were there, i got to see my bestest friend, Greta! <3 It was over a year since we last saw each other and we had so much to catch up on.

Top left: Hiking by a pond, Top right: My sister Hannah, Greta and me, Bottom left: me and Greta strawberry pickin'! :)  
Can you tell we had fun!? :) Those were some of the highlights of out trip, but on another note, our family got a new puppy two weeks ago...his name is Moray :)

A week after we got back from NC, me and my sister went on our church's camp trip.  It was soo much fun!! For worship, the band Rush of Fools played for us and they were really awesome.  We were on a mountain so it was a gorgeous view the whole week!

I. Hate. Pollen. 'nuff said. haha I started taking tennis lessons a few weeks ago, (i'm terrible) but we have been rained out for the past two weeks :(

 Last week, after church, me and a couple other youth went to serve lunch for an inner city church.  We had some time to kill before going so we hung around outside.

Hey Ya'll! Oh my goodness...i have not posted in so long! I really don't have any excuses besides that i just didn't feel like blogging. bahaha :) Anyway, a few weeks ago me, my mom and sister drove to New Jersey to visit all of our family there.  It was really fun, and the week went by wayyyyyy too fast. There was one other reason we drove up there.....we surprised my older sister Emily with a bridal shower! :) It was so. much. fun!!  She didn't even know that we were driving up there, she just thought she was going up for her spring break.  Enjoy the pictures! :)

Emily being surprised :)

The lovely venue :)
The stuff to dip in the fondue
The yummy finger-food

On the way home from New Jersey, we stopped in Nashville and went to the Parthenon.

The goddess Athena. It was so huge!

Winter Ice

Hey there!! How are ya'll doing this week? A few weeks ago, we had a mini ice storm, and when the front steps melted enough for me to walk on them, i went out and took some lovely (or what i think are lovely, haha) photos :) It was enough ice to cancel class, (I take one class at a co-op) but not quite enough to have some fun in it :( It was more like a slippery ice, then actual snow.  ENJOY!

Sorry all of the pics are icicles, but that's all there really was. haha :)

Birthday Weekend Stuff

Hello friends! (again) has been soooooooo long since I last posted. However, I knew when this weekend was approaching, that I would have much to blog about. 

Well, first of all.  We kicked off the weekend by staying up Friday night, to watch the Psych Slumber Party, and that was sooooooooooooooo much fun! Although, I did fall asleep about two hours into it...(haha) was still awesome!!

On Saturday, we slept in a little, and then in the afternoon we went bowling...yes...i bowled a score of 23 :( hahah!

On Saturday night, we were supposed to have a surprise birthday party for my sister Hannah, but the cat got out of the bag a little early.  Even know she knew about the party, she didn't know who was coming, or what games we were playing :) We had a BLAST!! For the games, we played our own version of minute to win it, and it was hilarious! :)

There were a few SO  many pictures from her party, so i'm only gonna post some of them. Like i said above, we played 'minute to win it' games.  We drew out a score board on our wipe-away board and everyone was assigned a colored team. The games were soooooooooo funny to watch (and play)!!!
Enjoy the pics!! :)

The food table

Let the games begin!

The talented throwers

Trying to dodge the ping pong balls
The point of this ^^^ game was to pull strings over your ears, which would raise a 'candy elevator' and you had to bring the candy up to your mouth    

It was quite entertaining...ahah :)

Well, that was our awesomely fun, but busy birthday weekend!!

P.S. - If you want to see the exact way to play each game go to

Hello friends! Sorry not posting for so long again. Things have been busy.  We haven't done much this week, but two weeks ago, I went to a weekend piano camp type of thing and it was at a college.  I had a few classes on music theory, and rhythm and stuff, and I had one lesson with one of the professors at the college, then at then end there was a little recital. 

Two weeks ago my mom ordered me a new devotion, and so far I love it! It's called How to Study You Bible by Kay Arthur. It comes with a workbook with questions and other stuff, that go along with the regular devotion book. 

I'm also gonna give a little fashion tip today.  I've created an outfit, that you can dress it up, or keep it casual, by just adding or taking away a few little accessories :) (The purse in the picture is actually the same purse I have, and I love it!!

One last thing I wanted to post, was a pic of my mom's valentines day wreath she made! I think it is just adorable!

Sorry it's a little bit short, but that's it for now!
