My Parents gave me a LAPTOP!!!!! I am so excited! It has internet and all this really neat stuff. I was kinda worried about not having a computer of my own at school, but this is amazing!!! I didn't expect this at all.
I keep saying the same thing over and over. I am so excited!!!!!
I have the sweetest, most wonderfulest parents in the whole world!!

Hmmm..It's over! Praise the Lord! It was beautiful and I did savor the moments, but it was a long weekend.
I got up early and started to get stuff together. I was at the church by 12:30pm and got my table ready. I was a little freaked out when it was 1:30 and my speakers were not there yet...Yeah, that was a little scary.
Jack Rodgers and Scott Barber spoke and the were both AMAZING!! Caroline surprised me and sang me a beautiful song called "MY WISH". It was amazing and I cried my eyes out.
Afterwards, there were a million and twelve pictures to take. Then I left with Anna and Ben and we dropped Anna off and went and ran some errands for Mama Lou. There was a nice party for Anna. I got to meet the vast a majority of the Beck/Wingfield family and that was very interesting. They are all so funny. I really loved Mama Lou's sister, Vera. Too Cute!
All in all, it was a great weekend. I love my family and I love my friends!
College...Here I come!!

I graduate from highschool tomorrow! I have so much to do before then. There are gifts to finish and food to prepare for the reception and letters to write and so much more.

I am excited about my graduation, but I think that I am more excited about it being over and being able to focus on Annabeck for the rest of the day. I am trying to savor these moments. I know it only happens once and I know that it will be over in a New York minute.

I don't even really have time to be writing this. I don't know what I am thinking. I have a rehearsal with my piano teacher for tomorrow. I am singing the National Anthem. I have a hair appointment this afternoon. I need to finish up the slideshow by burning it on to CD's.

More later....

Graduation Countdown...

Graduation is only 5 days away...I can't believe it. I have so much to do and there don't seem to be enough hours in the day.

Today was not the greatest day in the whole world, but I did find my graduation dress(which is one more thing that I can cross off my list). I love it. It is not what I was looking for, but it is perfect and very me. I'll post pics later.

I start a new job next week. I am going to be working a bbq place and I am kinda excited about it. It's going to be a killer summer, but things are going to work out just fine. They always do. :-)

I am starting to get sleepy and I have a big day tomorrow...So I am signing off for the night. But there will be lots to share this week, I am sure.

My birthday dinner was tonight. Annabeck, Ben Beck, and Rachel Sussenbach came over and we had steak. Yummy. Then there cookie cake and banana split ice cream(my favorite). There were gifts and a rousing game of PIG, because Anna has two tests tomorrow and didn't have time for HORSE. :-)
We all had a good time, I do believe. I go the new Josh Groban CD and a Jack Johnson CD. Really excited about both of those.
Good day, good night. I am really happy. Enough said. :-)

I am so tired that I can barely keep my eyes open...

Today has been a CRAZY day. We went to church this morning. Ben Beck came too. That was nice. We all went and ate lunch and drove back to Columbus for our piano recital. That was my last piano recital and I was so proud of myself for keeping it together. :-)

We had Awana this afternoon. It was the last night. YEA!!! We get the summer off. Of course, I won't be there in the fall anyway, because of school.

Good day...long day. I need sleep. It's been a long week, with late nights and early mornings.

Life is good...

I cannot believe how great things are right now. I am just enjoying life and all that it has to offer.

Tonight I went to Brookstone's girl's soccer game...They lost. But a good time was had by all.

Lucy and I then went to get ice cream. And then I went to Anna's house for awhile. We played Frisbee in the hardaway field across the street. We are so sporty!!!

I got a new razor phone today. I love it. It make me very happy...In a non-materialistic way, of course.

All in all, I feel good about the way things are in my life. I am excited about the future, while savoring the present. Good way to live, I think. Obviously, that's why I am living that way.

God has been so good to me. I am blessed to have what I have. Relationships, clothes, food, a car to drive, life in general. I don't deserve all the goodness that exists in my life and yet, it's there. I sure do lover that God of mine! :-)

Voice recital

Last night was great! I felt so good about my performance. I sang THAT WILL SHOW HIM from A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM and JIMMY from THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE. I had fun songs this year and I was able to play with them.

I had an emotional breakdown yesterday afternoon about this being my last voice recital. It was crazy. I cried and cried. Then I cried at the recital. I know the same thing will happen on Sunday at my piano recital.

I know that the next chapter of my life is going to be very exciting and I am ready for it, but knowing that this chapter is going to end in 18 days is a little much.

They say that tears cleanse the soul...I am going to have one, very clean soul.
