To make you squeal

I'm sorry, but I just can't help it. I'm a girl, I love guy/girl cuteness and stuff like that :)) If you don't, then I suggest you just move along quietly while I sit here squealing my head off hehe

Perfect to end with :)

#4 Complete

First things first, I want to thank you all again for all your sweet comments, birthday wishes, and just all around awesomeness :) Seriously, you guys had me blushing the entire day!

You, my little group of followers, are who keep me going. You guys encourage me every day with your comments, tips, emails, posts, everything. I love you all so much more than words can describe.

Main shout out people I want to thank are
and Jessica

You guys are so amazing. Like seriously. I started crying when I read y'alls sweet posts!

Now for awesome news: I didn't think I would be able to complete a number on my Sixteen while Sixteen list for a while, but I surprised myself, and others, with this one:

#4 Stay up an entire night

Now, I am not a night person, like at all, so this was interesting. I had invited a couple of my friends for a birthday slumber party. One of my friends even came dressed as a penguin! She wore black pants, a white shirt, a black jacket, a red bow around her neck and black nerd glasses. It was so hilarious.

We played games, talked, Just Dance-d, and watched Tim Hawkins (whom, by the way, is the best ever). At about 3am, people started crashing so four girls and myself moved our little party to my bedroom so we wouldn't disturb them. We talked about every subject on earth from guys, to dissecting cow eyeballs, to cell phones that looked like penguins (don't ask, we were reeeeally tired), to the Hunger Games. We even had 4:43am cupcakes. Which, if I might say, was the best cupcake I had ever had :)

Together my comrades and I watched the sun rise through my bedroom window. It was glorious.

Because picture-less posts make me feel lame. And because I reeeeeeally want to see the movie.

Sixteen while Sixteen

The day has finally arrived. The day of my sweet sixteen. It feels like only yesterday this girl was losing her front teeth, wearing princess dresses, and giggling at the thought of me ever liking guys more than just friends.

I asked nicely (and used my Puss in Boots eyes) on Emma to use this for my birthday. She said yes and I did a crazy dance around the house :)


My Sixteen while Sixteen List

1. Make a list of 1,000 things I am thankful for
2. Go horseback riding on the beach
3. Take a college class  YAY!
4. Stay up an entire night Completed 3/23-3/24/12
5. Blog every day for 2 weeks
6. Complete my Year-Without-Soda challenge (Ends December 9th)
7. Go camping
8. Try something new
9. Keep a journal I kept a journal during my New York missions trip. :))
10. Learn to play an instrument
11. Drive a total of 50 hours
12. Be a penpal to someone
13. Send a care package to soldiers in another country I think this was my favorite :)
14. Host a caption contest
15. Go on an adventure I'm considering my missions trip to New York without any of my family members as an adventure because I was absolutely terrified.
16. Hold a snake on my own (I am conquering my greatest fear, people)


There's a reason why I decided to do a "while" list instead of a "before" list. I want to cherish my time being sixteen. I want to live life in the moment, not thinking about seventeen coming next year. And anyways, thinking about me being seventeen makes me feel extremely old ;)

Just for the fun of it:

Aww come on, its a fat cat with balloons! How can you resist the cuteness? ;D

You were made to stand out

{This picture makes me smile}
"Do not conform any longer to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is- His good, pleasing, and perfect will."
~Romans 12:2

This verse has always been one of my favorites. For the science club I attend, it was a requirement to learn this verse by heart (homeschooling rocks :) ). I didn't mind. This verse makes me smile every time I hear it. So many a time we get caught up in the world. We cram ourselves into the square box to fit in, while in all reality, we are a triangle. We are special, different, unique, created in God's image. We were not made to be like others, or like this world. Our goal in life needs to be becoming more like Christ.

A Hunger Games Tag

Sooo...I received an HG tag by the amazing Jessica over at Diary of a Beautiful Soul. My cats gave me the strangest look because I literally started squealing out loud because I was that excited. Only 5 days people! 5 days!!!

1. Your sister's/brother's/best friend's name gets called at the reaping. What is your immediate reaction? 

First, I'd probably be too stunned to do anything. Once I came to my senses and realized that it wasn't just a horrible dream, I'd be rushing up on stage to volunteer. 

2. In the training center, there are several different stations to practice your skills, some of them being how to camouflage yourself, archery, sword training, climbing, spear throwing, hand-to-hand combat (wrestling), and agility. Which one would you head for? 

Well...I know how to shoot archery, and playing soccer for years gave me pretty good agility skills, so I'd probably hold those stations off so I wouldn't let people know my strengths. :P Knowing me, I'd either go hit the climbing or the hand-to-hand combat stations.

3. You're in the arena and the countdown has just started. When the cannon goes off, what's your strategy? 

Grab the closest thing towards, then take off running for shelter. There's no way I'm staying to deal with the mess that is bound to happen at the cornucopia!

4. You are feeling like you're being watched. You glance over your shoulder and sure enough, the youngest tribute in the Games is watching you. What do you do? 

Make a friend :) You're not going to survive unless you make allies.

She's so adorable! Perfect Rue ♥

5. There are only four tributes left in the arena, including you. What do you do? 

Go hide until everything is over. I doubt I would have the guts to try anything different.

6. Which supporting character are you most like and why? 

Hmm...what a tough question! I literally have no idea. I want to say Effie. No, I don't have a crazy wardrobe or anything like that. The reason I chose her is she is the only happy person in the books. I know they are supposed to be downcast and sorrowful stories, but that's not my personality. I like to look on the bright side of things, and be on time. I cannot stand being late. In those ways, I feel I am most relatable to Effie. Also, she has epic hair. Just saying.
7. Which supporting character is your favorite? 

Finnick♥ Love him.

And now, I tag...
If you are a Hunger Games fanatic, please feel free to take this and complete the tag yourself! I'm just uncertain as to which of my followers are since I've never actually talked about them on my blog.
