Project

So recently I started a new project. I love to scrapbook, so besides keeping up with my old ones (which i really need to get on, i’m so behind. like a year behind… oops) i decided to make one for andrew and me. I found this beautiful one at jo ann fabrics when mom and danny were shopping for something to make a curtain out of (why not take advantage of staff retreats?) and i got some supplies for it and i went home and started. i do a little at a time, and i hope to be on top of this one instead of behind like my others. i have a few pages done already and i think it looks beautiful so far.

here’s the front cover. you can see it had a little place to write a title for the book. so i kept it simple:)

here’s the inside “intro page” i guess you could call it.

dsc062013

it’s the one i put at the end of my last post. and a fun fact is the ribbon with the hearts shown on the page is what i found first in jo ann fabrics. from there i decided upon the whole project.

on this page i decided to put the pictures that are different than regular “photos”. like the one all the way on the bottom is from photobooth on my mac, but i changed the settings to something. and andrew looks like he’s 5:) the one in the middle is from photobooth at the mall, and it’s the first picture andrew and i had together. kelsey was in it but i cut her out lol. and the top one is from andrew’s new laptop he got for christmas. it’s a dell (eww) but he could mess with how he looked through webcam so i took that one.

this is my senior page. the glare on the picture is kind of bad and its because of the terrible lighting and the way it took the flash in my room, but i took my favorite pictures of us from my senior pictures and i took letters and colored them silver and blue for mrhs. the one on the first page is also from my senior pictures, but it’s my favorite one out of all so it gets its own page.

dsc06206

this one is just a page of random pictures of the two of us together. oh and in case you were wondering, the one on the bottom right is a picture i took of our reflections in toaster oven at sheetz while we were waiting for food:)

and here’s the last one i have done so far. they’re from me&andrew&danny&erica’s walking adventures to the farm. we found hay barrels there and hung out on them for the afternoon.

well, i’ll continue to update about the scrapbook after i make more pages!🙂

Still Feels Good

That old t-shirt you wear to bed
Hangin’ off your shoulder by a thread
The one you ripped off me when
we first met
Still feels good

That old familiar song blarin’
from my car
We know every note, every word
by heart
Puts a smile on your face ’cause
you know it’s ours
And it still feels good

Your fingers hooked around
my belt loops
Leanin’ up against my ride
Remember that first time I touched you
It doesn’t matter-I’ve held you a
million times
Oh, and it still feels good

We made some crazy plans, had some
crazy dreams
And now that we’ve reached
a few you would think
That it would get old to you and me
But it still feels good, still feels good

Your fingers hooked around
my belt loops
Leanin’ up against my ride
Remember that first time I touched you
It doesn’t matter-I’ve held you a
million times
Oh, and it still feels good

Oh, your fingers hooked around
my belt loops
Leanin’ up against my ride
Remember the first time I touched you
It doesn’t matter, I’ve held you-
I’ve touched you
I’ve felt you-I’ve loved you-
and it still feels good

Yeah and it still feels good, baby
Yeah, it still feeld good-yeah, yeah, yeah
Still feels good
Still feels good, baby

— “Still Feels Good” by Rascal Flatts (my favv)

cinderella

lol I know there are a lot on here that I put up, but on facebook there’s like a bunch more. so just go on mine and see them:)

The cast list for The Boyfriend goes up after school. I’m kinda nervous. I had a bad dream while I took a nap this afternoon that they didn’t put me in the show and that nobody wanted me in drama class anymore because I couldn’t even make the school musical. GAHHHHH. anyway. I’m going to patiently wait I guess….. 

I’ll post soon about the results!!!

Life. Life. Life.

Have you ever felt like you’re running on auto-pilot? Like everything’s going on and you’re participating, but when you look back, you honestly have no clue what’s been going on in life? Yeah…. So that’s kinda how I feel right now with most things. I feel like I’ve been running on air and water all week. I’m hoping to change that with winter break coming up and everything.

Christine and I are trying new things to get us the flat stomachs we want. I know some people think we’re stupid and that we don’t need to do this. Let me just get this out in the open. No. I am not one of those stupid girls who think they’re really fat and are going to become anorexic/bullemic because I’m not skinny enough. No, that’s not me. I just don’t feel comfortable with my weight and I just want to work on it because I think I’m just over-doing the fatty foods. I want to be able to have muscle and be able to wear a bathing suit next summer without feeling uncomfortable. It’s just how I feel about myself right now. But I’m working on it, and I’m not going around being like “omgg I’m so overweight I’m going to go anorexic”. Cause that’s just stupid. I just really want people to respect what I see in myself and how I want to work to make it better without anybody criticizing me and contradicting me when I tell them what I’m doing. I’m just exercising and eating more healthy! How is that a bad thing?? Goodness.

Whenever I talk to a friend I haven’t talked to in awhile, one of the first things they ask me is “How are you and Andrew??”. So I feel like talking about me and Andrew right now I guess. Andrew and I are amazing. I get to see him pretty much every day, which just makes me realize more and more every day how much I love him. He’s just perfect! He’s so kind and loving… and all he cares about is if I’m happy. And OMG! He’s so cute with kids (I know this is completely irrelevant but let me explain). At the UHL shows this weekend, he helped out backstage with me and Erica… and he became close to Mady (one of my lovely daughters… the youngest too). Every time I would look over at him, he would be sitting with Mady in his lap and they were just playing around for the longest times just enjoying eachother’s company. It was so sweet. She really got attached to him, and he was just happy that she didn’t hate him (lol she’s been known to hate some people). Anyway. Back to Andrew and me. He just makes me so happy! Like he’ll come over, and he’ll give me a hug, and I’ll focus my eyes on his smile and then slowly move up to his eyes and once I see them, a huge smile appears on my face. I can’t help it! And I know that sounds really gushy, but it’s completely true. His eyes are the most gorgeous light sea blue I have ever seen in my life; and that’s coming from someone who loves different eye shade colors. 

Ok, so I think these are good enough life details for right now. Maybe more soon? We’ll see.

It’s that time of year again…

The new UHL show goes public tomorrow. The show starts at 7:00 at St. Alphonsus. http://www.uhltheater.com for info if you wanna come. that should be interesting. i almost killed a kid or two today. i did yell at them though and that made me feel better. andrew’s helping backstage with me and ica so that’s really nice to have him there to help me calm down and relax when i get too fed up with these children. 

today in womens’ we had a party. like with a full (400-piece-filled-cause-i-filled-it-myself) pinata and everything. it was alot of fun. i’ll post pictures once diane puts them on facebook. it was power ranger themed:)

kk i’ll update soon with a longer story lol

the land of nothing to do actually has stuff to do!

 

ok so take the two hearts and make them sideways instead of up and down, and that’s my christmas present from andrew!!!!!! hehe🙂 i’m wearing it right now but i have to give it back so i can get it back for christmas as a present lol i just wanted to share that.

okkkk so thanksgiving break was awesome. i can’t upload pictures because they’re on my phone and i’m currently on the phone so i can’t send pictures at the moment. but andrew came with us to “the land of nothing to do” and we had so much fun. we saw twilight, went shopping near pittsburg (where he bought my ring) and we played with ryan alot:) he’s getting so big! he’s 2. not talking alot yet, but some words and names. he’s so cute. i’ll put up a pic of the 3 of us watching wall-e on my laptop later.

but now i’m home and sadly school starts back up on monday. i hate school. it’s so boring.

lol ok that’s about it for an update. i’ll put more up later, but i’m tired.

2 months tomorrow<3

There is something that I see
In the way you look at me
There’s a smile, there’s a truth in your eyes

But an unexpected way
On this unexpected day
Could it mean this is where I belong
It is you I have loved all along

It’s no more mystery
It is finally clear to me
You’re the home my heart searched for so long
And it is you I have loved all along

There were times I ran to hide
Afraid to show the other side
Alone in the night without you

But now I know just who you are
And I know you hold my heart
Finally this is where I belong
It is you I have loved all along

It’s no more mystery
It is finally clear to me
You’re the home my heart searched for so long
And it is you I have loved all along

Over and over
I’m filled with emotion
Your love, it rushes through my veins

And I am filled
With the sweetest devotion
As I, I look into your perfect face

It’s no more mystery
It is finally clear to me
You’re the home my heart searched for so long
And it is you I have loved
It is you I have loved
It is you I have loved all along

– “It Is You (I Have Loved) by Dana Glover [from Shrek 2]

I love you, Andrew.

witty titles are so overrated.

hmmmmmmmmm….. things have been a little bit busy here lol

so i’ve been thinking about senior year alot lately… i want it to be the best it can be. now i  know i say this like a couple months too late, and it’s almost the end of 1st quarter, but in reality, we still have some time. the scavenger hunt is pretty much bombed so far, so i want team ABC (andrewbrianachristine) to get cracking lol. now that jukebox is over (which i still haven’t uploaded any pictures from that yet) and it was a BLAST, i want to start focusing on having the best senior year ever. i’m sure everybody says that, but in reality, my friends and i have complete open ended opportunities to have a freaking good senior year, so i want to take full advantage of it. [end rant]

jukebox=best show ever. idr if i posted on here, but at the saturday show, maddie ended up being too sick to sing, so i got to sing for her!!!! 

yeahhh i was pretty proud of myself for not like freaking out once i got there considering andrew and my mom were sitting in the front row! but looking at andrew (out of the corner of my eye) believe it or not calmed my nerves. it’s just his magic touch i guess;)

uhl has been going pretty well so far. we’re doing some random show called Rented Christmas. but andrew has been coming to some of the rehearsals, and i brought in my macbook the last time, and andrew ica and i locked ourselves in my mom’s office and just watched youtube videos the whole time. lol and took pictures:

(we were trying to be like batman)

anyway lol so then on sunday, debtrav came over to take my senior pictures! so far, we’ve gotten like half of them emailed to me so i can see them… hopefully by tomorrow afternoon the rest will be up. i’ll put more up later! my favorites:

i’m feelin’ good:)

 

YAYYY i finally got my macbook!!!! it’s b-e-a-utiful and i can’t stop touching it (thats what she said).

andddd…. i have this realllly great picture i want to put up. it’s simply gorgeous.

it’s me and andrew from homecoming:) i can’t even begin to get into how much i love him. i’m just sad that i could have had this earlier but i was stupid. anyway, that’s all over now, and now we’re perfect. he’s perfect. i don’t even know how to explain it. he just always knows exactly what to say or what to do, and we just fit with eachother perfectly. 

jukebox……………yeahhh that was soooo much fun. it was a blast! i’m sad that it was my first and last…. but the memories will stay forever.

senior year=going by really fast. it’s already almost the end of 1st quarter, and jukebox is already over, and thanksgiving break is in like 4 weeks and then christmas, and then new years, and then the boyfriend tryouts, and then everything’s almost over! i don’t even know what to say about college. i’ve been a little procrastinating and i’m probably behind, but i’m trying to enjoy senior year. and how do you do that with all this college stuff in the way????

ok so i hope i will remember to update this alot sooner than i have before. lol i always say that, don’t i.
