memorial day weekend

So this weekend was definitely awesome (: I had soo much fun…I’m so glad I got to go to the Smokies with jay…I’ve never got to go with her and her family on vacation and I wasn’t sure I would get to because of work but lucky for me it worked out and I had a blast!
Sat morning I got up bright and early at 4:40ish….yea…real! I thought I was going to fall over asleep before I even made it to my car…it was pretty bad. Luckily I made it to Stevenson without wrecking and met up with jay and the parents and her (and very much feels like mine too) little brother.  We all tried to sleep but I think jay and her mom were the only ones that successful at it lol. At one point jay had her feet up in the backseat, leaned over on colton, who was leaned over on me, and I was squished up against the door. It was a pretty funny picture I’m sure. We finally made it up there and Nobody would say what they wanted to do. We pretty much didn’t do Anything at all Saturday night till church. This was my first time to go to church up there and I was pretty nervous but it was actually really really good. The church is Tiny but I really enjoyed it (: jared and pretty much all of this family came up there too so afterwards we went to their cabin to eat. Oh my goodness! Their cabin is so stinking pretty! It’s pretty awesome that they built it….i love it. You should definitely check it out sometime (: it’s called bear’s masterpiece (jared gets called bear a Lot lol) we hung out with jared and jesse for awhile and helped entertain the kids and then we finally headed back to our room because we were all exhausted.
Sunday morning we went back to church and afterwards we went to ihop (first time ever for me) and we decided to take the kids to the park with us. It was me jesse jared jay jonas brandy john stephanie and about a million little kids running around lol. It actually was a ton of fun and I found me a new little boyfriend. His name is skylar hornbuckle and he is pretty much the most adorable little boy I’ve ever met. He was so stinking sweet….he was telling me how he liked my hair and my purse and all this…he pretty much just stole my heart lol. He stayed pretty much by my side all day at the park….and then later when we headed to Gatlinburg he wouldn’t eat until I fed him…and he was right by my side either holding my hand or insisting I carry him. We didn’t do too much in Gatlinburg….me jesse jared and jay got there before everyone else so walked down to the creek and sat out on the water and talked for forever. When everyone we got there we mostly just walked the strip. i did get to try a fannie farkle for the first time tho (: if you know me, well, you know how much I love corndogs…so much that me and aly made up a song about them. Yes, I realize we are 20, not 2, but I’m glad we act two together anyway (: Anyways….needless to say, the fannie farkle corndog was super great…as are like, all corndogs lol. Even tho jesse made fun of me and acted like I was the biggest pig ever lol. They had been talking about the skylifts a lot and jesse reallyy wanted to go so we had finally made our way over there and they pretty much closed like right as we walked up lol it was pretty funny but I think they were kinda bummed. So we just decided to call it a night and head back. I forgot to mention that sometime during the day (I can’t remember exactly when….i keep getting what all we done mixed up) we went and hiked to some falls…tho I couldn’t actually tell you which ones lol. It was super pretty and makes me definitely wanna go hike again (:
Monday we got up and met the guys at tanger and we decided we’d head over to the titanic museum…I believe this was jareds idea but I have wanted to go for a long time…I am a huge nerd and I really like history stuff. It ended up being pretty interesting…to me anyway…I think most everyone else but colton thought it was super lame lol. There was one part that was built to look like you were outside on the deck and they had water that was as cold as the ocean was where the titanic sank so you could put you hand in and feel….well us idiots decided to try to see who could hold their hand in the longest. I’m surprised I didn’t catch hypothermia lol it was Terrible! A lot of it made me feel so sad for the people who were on there. But overall I enjoyed it (: afterwards we decided to finally go ride the chairlifts. Well…I’m a pretty big chicken…and I’m not a super big fan of heights….so I was kinda scared going up. And, of course, jesse decided to take advantage of that and make our chair move a lot. It ended up not being too bad tho (: once we left there we decided we’d drive thru cadesthru it who knows how many times in my life but I actually had fun. After that we decided to finally head home…me and jay rode with the guys till we got to Chattanooga. Jesse ended up falling asleep on the way back….it was sooo funny…jared decided the best way to wake up jesse would be to slam on the brakes and us all scream…yea. I agree, that was the best way ever lol. To say he was scared is kind of an understatement lol. I don’t think he appreciated it, but it pretty much made my trip lol.
Overall I’m definitelyy glad I went. If you are still reading this novel of a post, you’re pretty awesome lol. Lots of love to you guys (:

happy birthday dee bug!!!

so about 6 months ago, i have no idea what happened. but me and devan just all of a sudden became like overnight bestfriends lol. i've known her going on 3 years, and we've always been friends, but i guess the Lord knew how much i needed her and here lately we've bonded soo much. she'd been my rock here lately. soo many times i've called her so upset and she Always always listens. or i'm txting her saying pleasseee come stay with me, i need you! and she's right there (: i don't know that i have ever met someone with a bigger heart than her. she's one of the sweetest, funniest, most kind people you will EVER meet!
from all the monday night madnesses.....to mustaches in the photobooth :).....being pirates together....then cowgirls....the best day after thanksgiving shopping trip in the history of day after thanksgiving shopping trips....pretty much allowing me to be daughter #5 (tc still gets daughter #4 lol)....to seeing our first ever fox together, and becoming fox buddies :):)....sharing a birthday party (i'm soo glad we did now)...to calling you crying when some dumb little boy hurt me...being lucky enough to share a double date with you before you ran off and got married and left me lol....and overall just being one of the very very best friends i've ever been lucky enough to have!
i love you Sooo much devan rosa lynn!!! i don't think i could have survived the past few months without you. i hope you have the BEST birthday ever!!!!! happy bday dia!!!!!!!!

way too late to be blogging...

so i haven't been keeping up with this as well as i had, which is my i am sitting up at 12 a.m. to write a blog when i know i will regret it at 7:15 a.m. when my alarm goes off (: i was about to write "oh the sacrifices of being a teenager"...then i realized...i'm not a teenager...and haven't been for almost 2 years lol. oh the consequences of being old haha. anyway...on to my update!
so friday i went to jay's senior night...it was long...and boring...but i went because i love her and decided to support my bestfriend (: and because i missed her tons! we ended up having a lot of fun afterwards....i Begged tyler to bring nugget to jordan to let me see him...but no such luck :( it made my heart sad but now i have a reason to go back out there haha. we all went out to eat afterwards....and i finally got to try masons...which is now sams...it was actually pretty good :) and thank you dillion davis for teaching me the intricacy of opening and closing a car door lol. after that we went back to jay's for awhile till i was about to pass out so we finally went in and got ready for bed because i had to get up early to go shopping with miss tc (:
sat consisted of a Lot of running around store to store, going to garrett/chelsea/joeys party, babysitting derrick and tc, and falling asleep on derricks couch for like, an hour and a half, while stewart made fun of me lol. when i Finally made it back to tc's to get my car, i rushed home, changed, then went to church.
sun i went to decoration with mom and dad then to trenton that night. afterwards i did the sunday night crew eat out thing and had a great time hanging out with aprils and blakey (: as always! i took garrett and alex with me so i had to run them home but i ended up staying at their house an hour or so playing with their dogs. they're pretty much the cutest dogs in the whole world and they were happy to let me pet them (except hero who mostly ran from me lol) which made my night (: pretty sure i'd go to their house just to see the dogs lol.
today was just a regular old monday full of work, couponing, and a little reality tv mixed in (: i love me some bachelorette already! i also took out the seams and pinned four skirts tonight....pretty much like the most progress i've ever made in just one night. pretty proud of myself (: if you know someone who needs skirts made from jeans or swim trunks or whatever, you should hit me up (:
this weekend....i'm most likely going to the smokies with jay! i can not wait!! i will prolly come back with tons of pics, like i always do, and a way too long blog to go with it (: i doubt i will have much to update till then, so lots of love to you all, and goodnight!

awesome-hilarious-wonderful-but-not-thuper thursday (:

So thurs night was a Blast! Definitely the most fun I’ve had in a loooong time (: I’m so glad everyone came over (: I was so ready to leave work thurs…even tho it was a half day at work, it felt like the longest. day. ever. So I when I finally got to head home I took forever getting ready lol when aly showed up my hair was definitely still wet. Me running late, shocking I know. Next april and blake got here (I’m still not ready) and then erik…a little bit later bail and hil….then finally kenzie. We played a couple games of cranium (which the blue team dominated both times) and midway thru the games, hil and aly decide to go ahead and make the giant cupcake I had been planning to make for kenzie since it was his bday. Well they put it in to cook and come back to finish the game with us. It’s by far probably one of my favorite games Ever…but I’m pretty sure me and erik were the only ones really getting into it haha. I’m not really sure when we got the cake out but I’ll just tell about it now. They were soo excited to make this giant cupcake after seeing the pan, but um it definitely fell all apart when they started icing it. Oh well I loved it anyway (: we still sung (a very horrible version) happy bday to kenzie and the cake actually ended up being pretty awesome (: hats off to chef hilly g and aly. After that we moved into the living room so they could teach me and kenzie how to play concentration. And I definitely love it too (: it was a lot of fun even tho I probably bruised up my legs lol. Then we decided to make up our own game of gestures because we weren’t sure how to play the real one haha. And, once again, our team dominated! Haha it was pretty awesome because erik started screaming yes and cheering and the other team just thought we’d got our word right. Overall the night was pretty much the best ever (: it was totally awesome, amazing, hilarious, but NOT thuper (: (: lots of love,
Here’s some pics of our night (:

yes, that is the red team at start, and blue team at the finish!!
