I'm Legal!!!

So...Today is my 18th birthday. My first decision as an 18 year old citizen of the good 'ole US of A, was to eat breakfast...How liberating...

Prom was last night and that was fun. Zach was a great date and doing the group thing with lots of friends was the best idea ever. We danced all night. Dinner was amazing and all in all, the night was a success.

Today has been a good day. I got a million and 12 phone calls. My mom and Dad gave me a gift to open today(more to come at my party), and Annabeck gave me her gift. I have to say, Beck gifts are the best. Random and funny, with lots of thought put into it.

Zach, Carson, and Kelsey painted the rock for me...At 3am. Very funny and sweet!

Voice recital tomorrow night. Kinda exciting and yet, bittersweet. It's my last highschool voice recital and my last with Kimberly Cone. I know I'm going to cry...

Friday night with the Braves...

Watching the Braves game right now. We're losing. It's because I am not at the game. However, Ben is there. Hopefully, the power of the beard will help the Braves out tonight. 3rd inning, 1-0, Mets. Stupid Mets...

Tomorrow is prom. I have a voice recital rehearsal at 9:20. Then lunch with Annabeck at noon. Make up at 1pm, hair at 2:30pm, and Zach is picking me up at 5pm. I think it will be a good day. I like being pampered. :-)

Sunday is my birthday. 18 years old....My oh my, I am getting to be sooooooo old. We are having fellowship meal after church. We will have cake and ice cream and presents at that.

I will have a party later. No big plans, but I like laid-back, low-key stuff anyway. Dinner, a few friends. Nothing big. I think that Zach is painting the rock for me...

Ahh, the braves are still losing. Things had better change up here pretty soon.

End of the School year stuff...

It's that time of the year. Only this year begins a new chapter and I am really getting somewhat stressed.

I am putting together a slideshow for graduation and planning this graduation, pretty much by myself. I don't know what happened.

I have prom this weekend and my birthday. Then there is a voice recital on the 1st of May and a piano recital on the 7th of May. The graduation on the 20th. Busy month.

This week is a crazy week. Honestly, it's going to stay crazy for awhile. No slowing down. I don't think that I would have it any other way.

I had a close walk with Patsy Cline last night after midnight...

My dad took me to see "A closer walk with...Patsy Cline" last night at the Springer. It was pretty darn good.
Katie Deal played Patsy. She really had the voice down. As a die-hard Patsy fan, I was bound to be critical, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that she had mastered a lot of the vocal qualities that made Patsy...Patsy.
There was a packed house. Everyone was really into the show. Jens is back in town and he was at the show. It was good to see him. John Briggs was in town for the night. He directed ROMEO AND JULIET. It was nice to reconnect with friends who have been gone for awhile.
Academy starts soon and I am really excited. I think that we are going to have a great group. The fact that I get to spend four weeks, all day with Lucy Flournoy and Chrystal Carter makes me one happy girl.

Birthday talk....

So, there are only 9 days left until my birthday. I got a couple of early gifts today. Ben Beck gave me jelly beans(two bags) and the score card from Jeff Francoeur's first ball game with the Braves. He also gave me the ticket stub from the game. All of this was in a coffee box. Very cute. Then Paul Beck, not to be out done, gave a me a United Cheerleading tee-shirt and a CD that he burned on the spot. Two of the sweetest guys in my life. :-)

The parentals are out of town. They took my sister, Sarah Ann, to Athens for a piano competition. They stopped over in Atlanta for the night and some fun...I am not bitter at all. :-{

Tomorrow night, my dad is taking me to see "Forever, Patsy Cline" at the Springer. I am really excited about this!!!!!

The picture above has nothing to do with this blog, but I like it's there.

I've got that middle of the week feeling. It's been a long week and it's only Wednesday. I hate that. I like to enjoy my week and all the stuff that I do.

I have ballroom dancing tomorrow night. Always interesting. And good for a laugh. I also have a voice lesson tomorrow, which has thrown me off a bit, because of the fact that it's usually today. No big deal, but still...

Mom and Dad are going to Athens with Sara Ann this weekend for a piano competition. She had better win. I know she can do it. The best part is, she never has to play those songs again. YEA!! I am so over all of them. Everyone is. Mom says that she hears them in her sleep. Funny, but probably true.

All in all, today could have been better, but somebody else probably had a day that was much worse than mine. There is ALWAYS a silver lining.

Happiness is....

My life right now. All is well in theresatown. School, college stuff, friends, family, and just life in general.

Prom is right around the corner, my birthday is 12 days away, graduation is 32 days away, and college starts in August. Ahh...What more could a girl ask for?

Easter was a nice relaxing day. I got to hunt for eggs. It was our family only, so all 8 of us went egg hunting. It was great.
All in all, life is good. I couldn't ask for anything more!

I found it!!!

I found my prom dress and I love it!! It only took me about an hour and a half and I only tried on six dresses. It could have been worse! :-)
More about Prom later.....

I don't know what to write.....

However, I feel the need to write, so forgive me if this doesn't make much sense.
I just got off the phone with an old friend that I haven't talked to in awhile. We see each other sometimes, but not often and when we do it's more like "hello" and "goodbye". We talked for an hour. It's always nice to reconnect.
Right now I feel kinda sick. I have a fever of 100.3, which could be another reason why this blog doesn't make much sense. My normal body temperature is 97.4. Crazy, I know.
My weekend could turn out to be interesting. I'll let you know.
I am going to go shopping for a prom dress tomorrow. Prom is on the 29th and today is the 12th. Yeah... I should have had this dress weeks ago.
I'm tired. I might like to go to bed. I feel like I was run over by a truck...17,000,000 times. Ok...Maybe not 17,000,000 times. Maybe it's more like 7 times. Either way, it kinda sucks. And yet, it's ok. Why you might ask. I'm not telling, because I am just that selfish.

Spring Break 2006

Ahhhh....I am really tired in a very good way. I just got back from the beach yesterday. My sister, Sarah Ann, and I went to Ponte Vedra with four moms and their six kids. We watched the kids at night while the moms went out. It was the easiest job ever. There were two boys and four girls. They were all so good. I was in total shock when they didn't complain when I put them to bed. I think that they were so tired from playing so hard on the beach all day that they fell to sleep immediately.

Free trip to the beach, free food, and I got payed. What more could a girl ask for?

School is coming to an end, my birthday is getting very close, Springer Academy is almost here, and all in all, life is good.

Spring Break '06 was a true success in every way.

Funny stuff....

Ok..So yesterday, I was at Evangel Temple with my sister(Sarah Ann). She had to record something and Jason Moore was helping us. He said that he had learned how to blog and he has on here on blogger called "jasonandstacie". Let me just say that I laughed and laughed and laughed. Good times right there. :-)
Today has been a good one. I got all my school stuff finished pretty early and then I went and had coffee with Ron Anderson and then I took Caroline to class and then went to the grocery store, picked Caroline up and came home. Tonight, I am supposed to hang with Annabeck before we both head out of town for the rest of our Springbreak. We are both going to the beach and I am really excited about having a few days of just playing on the beach.
I have been pretty happy and content for the past few days and I am still feeling that happy-glowing-feeling. I know what it is, but I'm not ready to share until I am sure that it's for real. Besides..I like to keep the 3.5 people that read this blog on their toes....

Can it get much better than this?

*Contented sigh*
The countdowns have begun! 27 days until I turn 18 and 47 days until graduation.
My show has closed and that has me feeling post show blues, but other than that....
I had a ton of friends come and see OLIVIATOWN. It was a good run and I can't wait to see the new cast next year.
I have made my college choice and that feels amazing. No more wondering or waiting. August will be here before I know it. Wow! It feels weird to be so close to being on my own. There is a whole new chapter of my life that is about to start. This is the time in our lives that we all wait for, but think will never come and it's finally here.
I have a good feeling inside me. A feeling that makes me giddy. I like it...
