Teenagers Now A Days

The words in this post are mine and all opinions are mine.  If you did/do the things in this post, this post is not to offend you or for me to put you down.  These are all my opinions and thoughts.  I respect your opinions and hope you will respect my opinions.  This post is for me to look back on and see what my thoughts/opinions where.  Thank you for understanding!

For some teenagers a typical weekend is to get drunk or high.  There is FAR too many kids in my school that have gotten MIPs.  To me, it's sad.  What do my friends and I do on a weekend?  We go out to eat, to a movie, to Red mango, shopping, sleepovers and just hanging out.  But for many kids it definitely is not that.  My friends and I don't see the point in drinking at this age.  You are 17 or 18, why do something that could affect THE Rest of YOUR life!??  I don't think it's 'cool' to drink.  I have my own opinion on drinking.  I have no desire to drink.  I've seen what it does to people.  My step dad and mom think that someday i'll college from college drunk, but do I think i will?  Nope.  Why?  Cause it's not for me.  I have no desire to ever drink.  Now am I saying that I won't ever?  I don't know, i can't read the future.  My aunt and uncle don't drink.  And even though there are reasons, i admire them for it.  Because I don't want my children to see me ever drinking.  I don't want them to think it's cool and I want them to not want to drink because they don't want to.  I hope that they are kids that don't drink or get high to be 'cool'.  

At the end of the day, I think it's sad that people have made dumb decisions that affect their life's cause it was the cool thing to do in high school.  I will never regret not drinking or even not wanting to try it.

Lazy Friday aka snow day

Tuesday, February 26, 2013


Do you ever sit and think about HOW fortunate you are?  It's pretty normal for me to complain.  And sometimes I need to remember how lucky I truly am.

I mean no, I'm not perfect...i'm not the skinniest ..I don't have the best car....I don't have a million perfect friends....I don't have the nicest house or things...I have annoying siblings ...I feel like I am going to lose my minds somethings...I don't have enough time in the day...


I am me, I have a working vechile, a best friend and other close friends, a roof over my head with people who love me, another day to make days better and my life!  

So even though I know I shouldn't complain, it's something that I can work on everyday and remember just how fortunate I am!!

I will leave you with these song lyrics.  Happy Tuesday!!

"Everytime you think you got it bad, you can find someone who's got it worse.  All the things you take for granted now, they started out as blessings first.  If you got someone who loves you, and a steady job that puts food on the table, if you're strong and able, Man, be grateful."
Be Grateful by The Farm

Writers Block

Don't you love it?!

Sometimes my weekends and life are plain old boring. :P  The last 2 weekends were busy so of course I had lot's to share about them.  But this 4 day weekend thanks to snow days has been boring!!  Which doesn't help the trying to figure out what to blog about!  I LOVE blogging but sometimes it is HARD to think of what to blog about.  I don't always want link ups or pictures or deep thoughts or boring randoms.  I try to mix it up but when you are having writers block, it is even harder!

So here are some confessions from ME..
  • I don't know how to braid.  My fingers just aren't coordinated!!
  • I want 3 or 4 kids, but if it was up to me I would have 7 or 8 just for the baby age <3
  • I check Facebook WAY to often!
  • I could never stop drinking Dr Pepper, I love it too much!
  • I have a weakness for cheap stuff!  Even if I don't need it!!
  • I love to do laundry expect for folding socks!
  • Sometimes if it is just me in the car I will turn up the music and singg!
  • I wish my life was a fairy tale!  Or I would have a Love fairy tale. 
  • I have yet to get a Prom dress.  When's prom you are asking...?  APRIL 6th.  Yeah...My goal for this weekend?  PROM DRESS SHOPPING!  It's hard when i've been busy on mom's weekends and gotta go on one of her weekends.

Happppyyyyy Monday! :D

It's been another GREAT AMAZING weekend!  It's SO nice! :)  But it was also such a BUSY BUSY BUSY weekend!!
I didn't have the best week last week so it was a great change this weekend!
Friday night after work I went over to Kayleens.  We hung out while Kayleen did chores and then eat before heading to our High School Basketball game.  Then we asked and got a sleepover!  We stayed up til 1am watching October Baby!
Then we slept in Saturday til 10am.  Hung out and til heading to the 1:40pm Safe Haven movie time.  Safe Haven was SO SO good!!  LOVED it! <3.  I finally got home around 4pm.  I spent the rest of Saturday hanging out.
Sunday was a busy day!  I taught Sunday school and then 1pm to 5pm I helped set up for the high school youth group Valentines Day Dinner Funderaiser.  Then the dinner 5:30 to 7:30 followed by clean up!

And then today....I worked 9am to 5:30 and went very well!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  I loved the busy weekend.  A pretty laid back 4 day week.  Change of like 12 to 16 inches of snow Wednesday/Thursday...crazyness!!!  Hope everyone has a great week! :)

A Great Weekend

Happy Monday!! :)
Hope everyone has had a great weekend, I sure did!

Friday was all about celebrating Kayleen's 18th birthday!!
We met up at the school around 7am, which I was a little late cause I had to turn back and get her present that I forgot, I was so mad at myself!  We went and spent my giftcard at a coffee shop, which I just got hot chocolate. ;)  And then grabbed some donuts and sat in the school parking lot, eat our donuts and she opened her present!
She LOVES One Direction so of course this Birthday present was a hit!  I also got her a warm fuzzy blanket and I wrote out 100 reasons why she is my best friend :)

Saturday started out as a LAZY morning :)  I love some lazy mornings catching up on my TV shows!
Around 11, I put a pizza in the oven, showered and then eat lunch.  Then I decided to fulfill my want to bake by making homemade chocolate chip cookies!
The before & after!  I got the recipe off Pinterest here.
And the final product....
And they were yummy!  The rest of the day, besides taking my brother to baseball practice, was a lazy day!
But I did go for a walk.
 And did some homework..
Sunday I went to Sunday School.
Then Kayleen & I went to the mall.  Grabbed some food and then looked at prom dresses.  Didn't see much so then we ended up buying some clothes!! :)
I got some boots that look this these!  Been loving them forever and only 25 dollars so decided why not and got them!!
Stopped by walmart, dropped Kayleen off and then headed to youth group then home!  It was a GREAT weekend! <3

A Step Back

Today I was looking at the views each post.  And they don't get many looks, and sometimes that affects me more then other times.  So today I am stepping back and thinking about the whole point of this blog.  It truely is for documentary purposes.  How fun will it be to look back at the teeange years, the high school years!  Or to be able to document Graduation and all the scary fun stuff that is coming up.  So I may not get ton's of views or have ton's of readers, but in the end this blog to document my life so I can look back on it.

Check in tomorrow to read about my weekend and Tuesday for a post about things you may not know about me!

PS. Thank you to anyone that reads my blog!! <3

Happy 18th Birthday To My Best Friend

Happy Happy Birthday, Kayleen!  Today my best friend turns 18!  We have been through so much and even though she will probably never read this post, this post is dedicated to her!!
Happy 18th Birthday Kayleen!
I remember when we had science together in 6th grade!  Little did we know that we would turn into best friends!  7th and 8th grade year we dealt with all that stuff with Jessica.  It made us stronger and closer!  We went into Freshman year being best of friends!!  I definitely believe we have gotten closer and grown since Freshman year!  Freshman year and Sophomore years so we had classes, but that may us enjoy Junior English class and lunch and then Senior year Creative writing classes even more!  I know I'm not perfect but you still love me!  I doubt things, and worry that you will pick someone else over me and stop being my best friend, but I know that you won't.  We are bestest of best friends and hope you know how much you mean to me.  Come August we won't see each other everyday at school and it's going to be hard but I'm always here for you and in your heart!!
It has been so nice to have you and me working at the same place!!  Come next month when you are gone because of track it will be SO wierd!  I love being able to talk at work and help each other deal with the stress and make evening plans!   I will always love you and call you my Best Friend!!
You have so many qualities and reasons you are my best friend.  You are so kind, sweet, athletic and smart.
We have shared so many laughs, secrets, good times, memories, serous talks and so much more! <3  We are to peas in a pod!
So Happy 18th Birthday Kayleen!  I am SO excited to be able to spend some time with you this morning getting donuts and just celebrating AMAZING BEAUTIFUL YOU!!!
Love, your BFF
Jamie <3

Don't Feel Old Enough

Happy Wednesday! :)  Wohoo, half way through the week!!

Written on Tuesday Evening

Sometimes I don't feel OLD enough to be soon going off to college, making big decisions and being on my own.  It just doesn't seem possible!  I mean i'm 17 years old and I am going to be making decisions that will affect me for the REST of my life!  SCARY!!

Don't get me wrong, there are days that siblings are driving me crazy or things at home make me want to be away from home already!! 

It will be here before I know it.  For now, I am just going to love this phase of my life!!  Even though I am counting down till graduation ;)

Enjoy your Wednesday! :)

Wednesday January 30th

AKA our 3rd snow day of the year!
We got rain and fog \for several days before then it froze and we got 4 inches of snow.  So Wednesday morning I was woken up and told that we didn't have school!  I did not believe it and had to see it on the TV for myself! :)
 My dad had to go to work before he could plow the driveway (he has 4 wheel drive) and there was no way my car could get down the driveway!
 So we ended up staying home all day, dad drove me to and from work, and we stayed at dad's!
It was such a nice day off!  Unexpected too!
