Girls Night {with Hans}

Hey everyone!!!

so I'm sorry its taken me so long to post about this! yikes! anyways, just wanted to share with you the few pictures hans and i took at our girls weekend. :) well first i'll tell you what we did: we went shopping, did the photobooth, came home and ate pizza and watched 'father of the bride 2' (hans had never seen it), and talked, and talked, and talked, and talked! i swear, we coulda talked all night long but we were both exhausted. but we had ice cream at 1 in the morning, listened to McLaina, flipped thru last's year yearbook, laughed soo much, retold sonshine, renew and refresh memories (of course we would!!) and just overall had an awesome time! oh and also, we did do our vlog, but SADLY, it ended up being over 20 minutes long! we didn't realize we had been sitting in front of the camera for such a crazy long time until i tried to send it to hans thru email to put on youtube... and email wouldn't let me send it! i tried multiple other ways, but nothing worked. sooo i'm soooo sorry to everyone who sent in questions (mack, kelsey, claire, to name a few!!) cuz now you wont be able to watch it! and i must say it was pretty dang funny in some parts!!! but hopefully hans and i can do another vlog in the near future and make it alot shorter! haha

to kelsey who asked if we owned anything matching: yes, now we do! while shopping at charlotte russe friday night, we fell in love with these adorable scarves and i suggested we both get one! so we proudly wore them last sunday and people kept asking me: 'are you wearing the same scarf as hannah'? and i'm like, 'YES! we planned it!' lol *the scarf has tiny shiny hearts on them, if you couldn't tell*

*good ole lenovo camera pics!! hehe*

Soo that was our girls night! :) Once again, I'm sorry the vlog didnt work out! I was soo excited to let you guys watch it! :/ But we'll do another one, promise!!

Looking Back {Summer 2010}

In 2010, I went to a camp in Illinois, four hours away from home, and worked as a wrangler with the horses for seven weeks. It was a very difficult but fun time!! I was going thru my mom's pictures today and saw the ones she took when the fam came down to visit! Here are just a *few*! ;)

*me, Blue (my horse for the summer), and Freckles*

*this is called ponying. i hated it with a passion!!!*

*me on Jazmine, leading Duke. this is the 2nd time I fell off, and Mom saw the whole thing!*

*me and Blue, my baby for the summer! He could be such a brat, but I loved him!!*

*Lis, me & Meg at the helmet shed before our ride*

*the fam at DQ, enjoying time together before they went back home and left me for my last two weeks*

 *the Full Time wranglers: Me, Bekah, & Liz*

So, to sum up that summer in a nutshell: crazy, maddening and awesome all at the same time!! I don't think I would ever do it again. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me, and it taught me how to work insanely hard, and how to have a servant's heart. :)

Have you ever done something like work at camp for the summer?

Something I Learned Today

Life is not all about me, its about God, about serving Him and the people He puts in my life. There is no reason to get upset about the silly little things in life. In the end, what we did for Jesus here on earth is what matters. How we used the talents and gifts God has given us to serve others. Thanks to my bestie Hans, after a tough conversation with her this afternoon, I have come to realize its not all about me. Its all about Jesus!

Last Friday Night Game

Tonight was my school's last Home Game, plus it was Senior Night. I met Hans, Allie and Katie there and had a BLAST! :) It was an amazing way to end the basketball season!

*Me and my sweetie pie Hans!!*

After the game the fam went out to Dairy Queen. Its hard to say no to sweets when you're whole family is doing it! hahaa But extra exercising is in the future soon! lol After DQ we came home and have been watching home videos ever since! Its really hard to imagine I was such a tiny baby! lol

What did you do with your Friday night?

Hey everybody!!!


First off, I'm soo thankful for the love of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! He is amazing, and my greatest dream and goal in life is to learn to love Him with all I am, and to live for Him everyday. I don't deserve His love, or His free gift of salvation, and that's why I need Jesus. I'm a sinner saved by grace... because God is good, and holy, and He displays the greatest Love to the whole world. I don't deserve Him, but man am I ever thankful that He loves me and died for me. I LOVE YOU JESUS!!!


2nd, to my wonderful family! We fight like normal families and I have to constantly be reminded that life is short, and is precious and to treat my siblings and parents better, but when it really comes down to it, they are my favorite people in the whole wide world and I don't know what I would do without them! I love you guys!!!


And 3rd, to my amazing friends!!! You guys are the sunshines in my life, the icing on my cupcakes, my kindred spirits, my special little gifts from God. I love you guys with all my heart!!! Hugs and kisses!!!

Hope y'all are enjoying this very special day! Jesus loves you and so do I!!

Movie Love

So I was talking to Hans the other day about how much I love 'Little Women'. I've been sick all week (and also all this past weekend) so I stayed home from church Sunday, and then also on Monday and Tuesday. Monday I watched a movie I hadn't seen in ages. It also happens to be one of my all time favorite movies!! Its such a classic. So to here's to one of the greatest books/movies ever made!

one of the best lines in the movie!

"Will you come home to me, Teddy dear?"

 My sis Meg and I love this scene! ^^ Its awkward, hilarious, and adorable.

 This scene is soo cute and sweet!! I loved Amy and Laurie's little sis/big bro relationship wayy more than their 'lovers' relationship. :/

If you haven't ever seen this movie... WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN???!?!!? Go watch it right away. You'll be just as in love with it as I am when you're done. I can promise you that.

Now: go bear your soul & tell your most appalling secret to someone you trust.
