Fun Fridays!! (Plus a recap of the past three weeks)

Well hello once again!!! I got so busy recapping my trip that I completely ignored the real time part of my life!! But now I'm here to fill you in!! (Unless you've been following me on Instagram... Then you already know)

So my birthday was three (almost four) weeks ago Sunday. We kept it pretty low key, just went to church and came home. I saw these beautiful white roses at Aldi, and Mom got them for me!!! They made me very very happy. :)

The one thing that I really wanted for my birthday was to go watch the sunset on the beach. I'm blessed enough to live close to the beach, but I almost never get to go. But I took my guitar and watched the sunset. It was the perfect ending to my birthday.

The next weekend was out annual fine arts fundraiser. It's called Pizza and Pops, and we eat pizza and play popular music... the good kind.
I performed one of the songs I wrote, and my friend Claire accompanied me on a string synth.
Here's a picture that my fabulous voice teacher took!!

The next day (a Sunday), my grandparents wanted to take me out for my birthday, so we went to Cheddar's. The staff was nice enough to decorate my chocolate fudge cake!!!
And then, the icing on the cake (see what I did there?) was getting to see my old youth pastors. They were in town and we'd been trying to meet up with them all week. It was two hours of awesome.

Keri and Marc have had such a huge impact on my life. They are definitely some of the awesomest people I know, and they definitely live too far away from me. They've helped me grow in so many ways. Plus, they have the cutest little girl!!! :)

Well, lucky duck me over here didn't have to show up to school until 11:20 on Monday and Tuesday of that week. So on Tuesday part of The Gang met up at Starbucks. We had some good discussions, and just hung out like we do until we had to go to school.

Then that Thursday, I had a doctor's appointment downtown. Mom and I decided that it wou ISld be a good idea to get some Coney Island dogs for lunch... yep it was definitely a good idea.
Coney Island is this hole-in-the-wall place downtown, and it's one of those places where everyone goes, no matter who you are or where you come from. The food is that good.

Yaaaaay... Me getting ready to go in for my MRI...
Then on Friday a bunch of us Juniors got to set up for prom. It only took us 10 hours to set up, and it looked awesome. Our theme was Night On the Nile. There were pyramids, a pond, and giant Sphinx, as you can see behind our set-up crew...

It was a lot of fun getting to set up prom with old classmates. We hardly see each other, because of scheduling and extracurriculars and such. But it was fun.

Me rockin the aviators on the way to prom.
WOW look at that fabulous pond we constructed... And yes, that is the five dollar dress!!

This has to be one of my favorite pictures of the night. Jen was trying to get something off of my dress, and I decided to take some pictures.
Also, a BIG shout-out thank you to my fabulous Aunt Dale for letting me borrow some bling for prom! Isn't that necklace awesome?

Then on Monday... back to it with Jazz Band!!!

Ah, don't ya hate it when you get trombone slides in your face?

Tuesday found me back on the college touring bus, with me and the Parents touring Southeastern University. It's a pretty awesome school. Choosing a college is NOT going to be easy...
But we stopped by Parksdale Farms on the way home!! It's this big produce stand/market thing, and they sell frozen treats... Like strawberry shakes!!! Yum!!
I know, I know, it seems like I'm never in school...
hehehe... that's because I'm not :)
Our choir threw a suprise baby shower for our fabulous director on Wednesday!! One of the choir moms made a baby carriage out of a watermelon... Isn't it adorable?

And then I photobombed the cake picture... accidentaly.

On Thursday, Nikki, Jordan and I went to Chipotle. Our chapel director at school took us out to lunch to thank us for the work we've done this year.

AAAND Nikki and I just took pictures of each other...

Twin love!!

THEN today, the Voices of Liberty from Epcot came to do a workshop with out choir. They're pretty awesome, and we were so lucky to have them come work with us today!!
*sigh* Wow, that was exhausting.
But hey, we're all caught up now!!!
That's exciting!!!
Anyways, I'll be posting again soon, I promise!!!
But until then, Don't Forget To Be Awesome!!!
