Last night was amazing!!!! haha Hollie and I planned to prank her friends car and so we decided to prank some others while we were in the pranking spirit. So Hollie, Ellie and i went to Wal-Mart and picked up suran wrap, milk, a HUGE chocolate bunny, glow sticks and cheerio's! First place we headed was our lead pastor's house! he talked about how he loves to sit and eat the ears off of a chocolate bunny, then fill it with milk! so all of us took bits off the bunny and set it upon his door step, filled it with milk and took some pictures, knocked and RAN LIKE WILDFIRE! haha Hilarious! it was awesome (pictures coming soon!), then since our recently old youth pastor was close by we headed over reminiscing over when he told us he hated Cheerio's! So we covered his windows in sayings and cheerio's and then suran wrapped his car, then covered his porch and driveway, as well as his car, in cheerio's! it was classic then all of a sudden a car flashes by and we duck! The we all dash to my car and as i try to turn it on, it pudders! My battery goes dead!!!! then this BMW, with TWO of the CUTTEST guys stops to help us! wheew! they were gleaming with generosity and handsomeness pulled over and helped me jump my car! aw! my knights in shinning armour! then it didnt last long cause i was too shy to say anything else but THANK YOU! and as they drove away, all i could see was a lifetime of happiness! and then we all become depressed, wishing we would have talked or flirted more! so we drove away hoping and wishing but we moved on to kelsey's house! we did our thing and we went back to dustins house, hoping they were looking for us too! WE WERE DESPERATE!! we searched the whole neighborhood, then found a car exactly like theirs and touched it to see if it was still warm like, someone was in it but no! it was stonecold! so we headed over to courtney, dras, rebas, and elizabeths! and made it a luai themed party in the front yard and on the cars! it looked great! and that was our night, as well as our constant glow stick party in the car! and this is to be continued for sure!

God has been stirring! Can you feel it? I can. HE is stirring some big things in my heart but not only there but in my youth group, THE REALM, and in our church and in our city! God is so amazing, so BIG and powerful! i am CRAVING him more and more everyday! my soul dances and jumps when i hear His name! Lord, I ask that you send me out to be your hands and feet in our city! Help me to be more compassionate towards others! Upon hearing the messages at THE REALM, I feel myself sharing more about him and praying more to him throughout the day! I love HIM! like Matt said, I'm tired of just talking about Him, it's time to do something about it! It's time to get up and dance, cause we're free now, it's time to lift up our praise, and shout it out now!
Did I mention that I'm doing a boot camp? i don't think i did! Well i am, I'm trying to tone up and get in shape. If you read my past blogs, one of my goals is to run a marathon, not walk but run! As well as run a marathon, i want to join the Air Force, and if I'm going to be going to boot camp there, and should get a head start in working out. But at first, i was doing it for the wrong reasons, i have always felt like because I'm on the chunkier side, i don't have a boyfriend, that was always my excuse! So i joined boot camp hoping to shed those dreadful, unwanted pounds and did! But after that first boot camp, i felt so much better about myself! It feels so good to wake up early and work out hard every morning! I encourage everyone reading my blog to do a boot camp! =]
OK! Let's get down to the nitty gritty! As i was reading over my goals the other day, i realized that somethings were spelled wrong and some things didn't make since! So i am REVISING, as well as giving an update on them! Hope you like them!

Anyways, so life has been kinda hectic, work, workouts, prom drama, school and more work! Im just living life, loving it! God, is really showing me the way. Before i did newthru30, when people talked about stories in the bible, i had no clue what they were talking about but now i do. i finally realize how good and mighty MY KING is! I love HIM! HE is such an AWESOME GOD!
Tuesday, February 23, 2010
I feel much better about my self! i think less of how i look to others and focus more on what He thinks of me, Beautiful! He made me in his image and i should be proud of how He made me. And now i am! Culture these days says that women should be skinny with large boobs and tan skin and always has a man by her side! Absolutely NOT! That is not what the image of god is!
Today is a beautiful day. I just want to go swimming now!
Saturday, February 20, 2010
Yesterday i was down in the dumps! i felt fat and unwanted. Then this morning i remembered that Jesus made me in his image, and through his eyes, he sees a BEAUTIFUL creation! Thank you Lord for showing myself through your eyes!
I'm going to make today a fun day!

I never have anything interesting to say! I'm not creative word wise, I'm more of a artsy person.
So as the last post said spirit week started and i have been super pumped to raise a lot of money for Pendleton place. And Friday was kick off to this awesome week. Saturday i helped set up for stampede for hope, and at first i didn't really want to be there and in my head all I thought about was myself until I realized as i was cleaning my room, that it wasn't if I was warm enough or awake enough to help cause I have a house to sleep in that is heated and clean and i can sleep whenever i want, but the pendleton kids didn't have that til they got to pendleton place and so that's why i was helping in the first place...Thank You Lord, Thank You for providing in my life, providing everything I need to be successful. I just want to be your hands and feet!!!
Anyways, after working I went to a Rave, which was awesome. ha ha, it was crazy with all the bright colors and flashing lights! it was a blast and a great event to have my senior year of high school!
Thanks to wonderful Sheila, who made some wonderful heart cookies! thank you! they were delicious!
Now today, its super bowl Sunday and where am i spending it, I don't know exactly! I helped set up for the senior citizen ball today for spirit week and it was fantastic,I hope all the seniors like it!
Friday, February 5, 2010
