Just got back from Rhonda’s birthday party. It was an awesome party! I took Andrea and we went early, set up streamers and hung out until everyone got there. There were a lot of people there! We hung out in her backyard and played games with balls and played zumies. It seemed like (to me) Brandon always made sure where I was, and at first he stood by me a lot. I had him warm up my hands a few times. 😊 and he was wearing a ton of Phoenix. I could smell it from two feet away. Yeah. We had cake, pizza, played apples to apples, except Harry, Garrett, Dan, Delia and I played poker. After that a bunch of us went outside. Brandon and I were locked outside together along with Taylor, Craig and Garrett. Later I ended up being the only girl out there so Harry and Brandon carried me back to behind a bush. It was so weird, but kind of cool. I just end up spending a ton of time with Brandon and right before they carried me, Brandon was sitting on the bench and I sat down next to him and he put his arm around me. 😊 cute! So yeah, I’m thinking everyday him and I get closer. Which is exactly what I want. I gave him a ride home everyday this past week too. Soooo, let’s hope he’s not very oblivious to any of this. And please God, help him ask me out! 😊 because c’mon it’d be P-E-R-F-E-C-T!
Amen & Good night!

Present day me: I remember having so much fun at Rhonda’s party. I took so many pictures with everyone and just enjoyed being around Brandon and everyone else.

I went to Bailey’s birthday party tonight. Beth picked me up and drove me home because she got her license yesterday! Her party was fun. We went in her indoor inground hot tub, had pizza, cake and ice cream. Made prank calls of course and just hung out. We also sat by a fire, took pictures. 😊
This morning Meryl, mom and I got our teeth cleaned and then walked over to the mall. We went shopping at a couple stores and bought some clothes. I got to drive halfway home too!

Present day me: It was really fun to go to these birthday parties to make more memories and inside jokes with my friends at that time!

I just got back from Beth’s sweet 16 birthday party! It was just at her house. We had pizza, played air hockey, hung out outside, talked, sang Stacey’s Mom. But instead, it was Beth’s mom. We decorated t shirts and played Never Have I Ever. We did the cupid shuffle, which I now know how to do. We sang songs and danced. I almost lost my breath. We took pictures of course. I could have stayed over but we’re going out of town tomorrow, so I had to come home. Me and Katie were the only ones that didn’t stay over. The people who were there: Tabitha, Rhonda, Delia, Casey, Stacey, Hannah, Grace, Jessica, Becca, Andrea, Bridget, and Bailey. I think that was everyone. Well, that’s about it for now.

Present day me: I remember this birthday party. It was fun! We didn’t get to hang out at Beth’s house very often and when we did it was awesome! She had air hockey, a large basement for dancing and a backyard with a great sledding hill!

Last night I stayed at Rhonda’s house. It was fun. Her mom picked me up and we got to her house, then Tabitha showed up. We played cards and talked. Then Hannah came. We ate dinner, pizza. And talked about so many things! It was really good to hang out with my three best friends! Then we went on a walk to a school nearby. Took pictures and attempted to play cherry bomb. Then we walked to Shopko because Hannah and I had to go to the bathroom. We got back to Rhonda’s house around 9:30. Got into our pj’s and watched Step Up. I fell asleep during it. Then I woke up when it was over and we all talked, and fell asleep. Next morning we got up and left.
Present day me: I wanted to include this entry because it was a good memory with people I was once really close with. They weren’t able to come to my summer all nighter so this was a time to hang out and make good memories.

Sunday – Happy Mother’s Day!
Well, this past Friday was Rhonda’s birthday party. I went to drivers ed after school and then went to Rhonda’s house, then we had to rush to the bowling alley! It was really fun!! We couldn’t get bumpers, so we got a lot of gutter balls. It was me, Erin, Hannah and Rhonda on one lane/team and Beth, Tabitha, Grace and Richie were on the other. We had a game and half about and then we did cake! We got to all sign a bowling pin for Rhonda, too. We ate pizza, cake and ice cream and talked about pretty hilarious stuff. At about 8 we went back to her house and just hung out, did presents, and watched John Tucker Must Die. Erin and Beth had to leave at like 10, so at midnight we decided to make a Reese’s no-bake dessert thing. It was good. We ended up going to sleep around 3! We got up at 9 and ate breakfast. Then me and Hannah were the last ones there.
That’s pretty much the highlight of my weekend.

Present day me: This was a fun birthday party I remember! The cake and ice cream, just the words, were an inside joke of ours. So, we had many things to make us laugh. I bet Rhonda’s parents would hear snippets and think, “what is so funny about Arby’s?” another inside joke of ours.

Well early this morning we got to Aunt Penny’s house at about 2 o’clock. Then we slept and got up at like 7am. We all went on a walk on the beach, then we went to Noah’s Bagels for breakfast. I love Noah’s!!! After breakfast we just walked around down there. Then we drove to this mini-Redwood trees site. It was really cool! One tree we could walk into the trunk of it! And still had room! The girl that showed us the inside said people used to use it for a honeymoon spot in the late 1800s. That’s pretty cool! After we went to the redwoods, Aunt Penny wanted to get some hot chocolate. Me and Eddie got milk chocolate. Meryl got white chocolate. It was really really good! The chocolate was really rich! You kind of needed to drink it along with some water! But it was good! Hehe. After the hot chocolate we went to the boardwalk to see the sea lions! That was cool! Me, Eddie, Meryl and dad got caramel apples. Mine and Meryl’s and dad’s had caramel, white chocolate and cinnamon on it. Eddie’s just had caramel. They were good! After that we came back home, and mom and dad got groceries and Uncle Ron and Aunt Penny, me and Meryl went out for lunch and did some errands! That was cool. We went to this BBQ Texas grille restaurant. Good food! After the errands we came back home and sat and tried to fix the hot tub (the heater wasn’t working) so, we hung out for a little bit, we had a little trouble with the tv and dish satellite. So, I helped Aunt Penny with the customer service for it. Then after that (we did A LOT today) me, Meryl, mom, and Aunt Penny went to get manicures and pedicures!!!! That was fun. I got pink on my toenails and fingernails. Then this cool flower design on my two thumbs! Very pretty! I <3 my nails! Ummm, so yeah, now we’re waiting for Uncle Ron and Aunt Penny to get back with the pizzas for dinner. It’s 8:30pm! And I am hungry!!! Today was so much fun!!! Happy St. Patrick’s Day! (I used a green pen to write this entry)

Present day me: This was our first day in California! I remember that as my first manicure and pedicure ever and I felt so cool! It’s really incredible the number of things we did that day! I don’t remember it being so jam packed. I’m glad I kept track of our trips! Visiting the giant redwood trees was a very memorable part of visiting California!!
