My Birthday!!!!

Thought of the Day: Wow, I truly have so many loving and caring people in my life!

Today is the day (well, when I started writing this it was)... My 18th B-day! It started off good. I got a lot of "happy birthday" comments from people at school, facebook, blogs, and text messages. I've felt like I need a button that says thank you for me. I brought cupcakes and we enjoyed them at my lunch table. In Bio my teacher told me to go to the office and get my flowers. I asked one of my friends should I go. I didn't expect to get anything like that at school. Lots of people get flowers and balloons brought to school but we normally get given that stuff at home. It was a bouquet of red roses and a card I opened it and it was from Mom and Dad. My mom put a picture of me and her when I was first born and a picture of a rainbow that was out the first day I came home from the hospital. I got to get two gifts a few days early the dress I'm wearing in the picture above and a skirt I'll wear to church sometime. I had a National Honor Society Induction that I had to be a part of since I'm one of the old members.

We had tech week for the musical this past week. That's when we have to use microphones, wear costumes and stage make-up, and the stage crew changes the scenes. Its been very crazy. Tonight I have the the musical again tonight. We did 2 shows yesterday. One for the high school during the morning and one for the public at night. I will write at another time about this a little more and maybe add some pictures if they turn out.

thoughts of spring!

Just a short quick update on my life. I'm going to be super starting next week. That's when track starts and the musical practices become longer since its getting closer to the show. Trying to stay on top of it all will be tricky so I'm asking that you keep me in your prayers please. I can get stressed out a lot during this time of year. I have Sound of Music mountains to paint and the list goes on!

I got my new track shoes. They are really cute. They are grey with this pretty shade of blue. In the inside they have an amazing design. None of my shoes before had anything cool in the inside. I've tried to start running and weight lifting so hopefully the first practice won't be a killer.

Oh my birthday is March 20th so I keep counting down the days! I'm not sure what I want or what I'm doing for it yet. I can't wait for spring time! I'm tired of the cold and want to see the tulips and feel the warm sunshine! I will try to keep you all updated on how things are going when I get a chance.
