Homecoming was a blast...so much fun. The only thing that gets to me is all the grinding. It would be so much more fun if our dances played just techno, jazz or swing and everyone just danced normally. Cooper and I still had an awesome time. We got our groove on without a doubt.
Today is moving so slowly. I am super tired and my brain feels like it is not functioning properly. Great timing because I have an AP chem test tomorrow. My teacher was so kind in considering the fact that this weekend was homecoming. Right now caffeine is my best friend.

It makes me feel like I am growing up too. She wasn't even born when I started babysitting her older sisters. It's funny to think about. I know I am not old, but I went out to dinner with friends on Friday to celebrate one of their 17th birthdays and an older girl said she cried when she turned 17 because she felt so old. I thought it was weird, but she said it was because she realized that she only had three more years left as a teenager. I don't know how I will feel when I hit 17, but I don't think it will be too depressing. haha.
I made these pages for a mini for my collection of fortunes. I sandwiched pages from the Ikea catalog with pages from Anthropologie catalogs. It is not done yet, but another one of those "in progress" projects.
I listened to the "J" block of my iPod this weekend. I realized that a lot of the "J" guys have a similar soothing sound. All around good music I would say.
- James Morrison
- Jon McLaughlin
- Jon Foreman
- Jack Johnson
- John Mayer
- James Blunt
- Josh Kelley
Anyways, start of this week fresh and think of all the possibilities.

Updated the Etsy shop on Sunday with some more quiltlets. I listed four and now there is only one left! A good friend bought one, then the uber talented Debra Gabel got one, and so did the fabulous Pokey Bolton (editor of Quilting Arts magazine)! It was very exciting! I also listed a baby quilt I finished up.
Sorry this post is kinda lame...I am sleep deprived and my to do list is growing.
Rachel's second art journal class started...I can't wait to start that this weekend, mayhaps.

I will let you know when they go in the shop, but for now I have this song stuck in my head on this never-ending rainy day. I am going to go curl up with Twilight and the iPod.

I got not one, not two, but three fortunes in my cookie on Saturday...is that considered extra lucky?
mirror self portrait. you can see my room. Anthro initial letters above my bed along with an old green clock that doesn't work. bed spread made by my mom...I am still working on my new Amy Butler one.
the pile next to my bed...teen vogue issues, artful blogging, a bible, and the latest addition...Twilight.
we had our tennis team car wash on Sunday...we made the freshman girls hold the signs and awkwardly stand by the cars during a red light. someone brought their iPod and I am sad to say this, but we played the Jonas Brothers and yes everyone knew all the words and sang along...I will confess, I was anti-Jonas, but their song "Burnin' Up" has grown on me and I catch myself humming it sometimes.
this is Stella...the 9 week old puppy of one of the girls on the team. super cute. she loved the water.
last, the quiltlets...i have eight that are almost done. i hope to have them in the shop later this week. for now you can peek at the doors with the cute buttons i picked out. i also finished off a baby quilt that will also go into the shop.
i hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend!
