Welcome To My Life

I'm a pretty touchy feely person, and there's no telling what I'll post on these blogs. So you'll just have to read them in order to see.
It'll probably just be my friends and family anyways, so Hi Family and Friends! Thanks for listening to my song. :)

Ring Ring Ring

Today, The teens[including myself] are ringing bells at Wal-Mart from 4-6pm for the Salvation Army. Our church has done this every year for 2-3 years now and I really enjoy doing it. As I have said in previous blogs, my family is busy busy busy today.
10-12pm Mom and Dad ringing bells for Salvation Army at Kroger's
10:30-1:30 Bekah is at play practice
2-4 Free time
4-6 Teens are ringing bells at Wal Mart
6:30-9:30pm Bekah's Graduation Party

I really like the chaos of being busy, to me it's a fun stress.
So, yay stress!

Busy Busy Busy

Today, I got a wordpress that my friend Ari and I are doing. It's just something for us to do together since we don't get to hang out all that much anymore :C
But anywho, here's an update:
This week has been hectic in that those of us in the Graves house have been really busy.
My sister and I had finals this week and my sister graduated on Thursday night [go sissy] and then today was her boyfriend’s band concert and tomorrow [deep breath] waking up, Bekah is going to play practice[she's in HSM: The Musical 2] and while she’s there my parents are ringing bells for the Salvation Army, then my sister get’s out of practice and then we go ring bells, then right after that we go back to our house to have a fantabulous graduation party for my sis! so yeah, busy busy day. Oh, and did I mention that it’s my parents 23rd wedding anniversary. So yeah, they don’t get much of an anniversary tomorrow. :C Hopefully, it will be a good day anyway. Well that a little bit about what my life has been like this week so yeah. My life isn’t always as crazy as that, but sometimes I wish it was so that I would have something to do. Boring! Anywhoo, I’m gonna get off of here and get some ZZZZ’s and hopefully get up early enough to make breakfast in bed for the mom and pops.

The Biggest Loser

So, I am very excited because at our church's past "Ladies Night" someone mentioned having a Biggest Loser at our church, and I am very very excited about it. I love the show. When it first came out I didn't but my dad did. I have just now started getting into this past season [season 8]. I fell in love with the people and really enjoyed watching their progress. The ladies thinking about having this at our church haven't gotten all the rules down or whatever but it's brought hope and excitement into our lives. Also, I made a Facebook group. haha. Can you tell I'm excited?

Peanut butter cup cookies

Take peanut butter cookie dough, break off a piece and roll it up into a ball according to the size of your muffin pan and put it in the muffin tin pan . Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. While waiting for cookies to cook make sure that all of your miniture peanut butter cups are unwrapped and ready to pop into the warm mushy cookie. Remove cookies from oven and immediately press a peanut butter cup into the center of each cookie. Allow the cookies to cool completely before removing from their pan.

So there you go. Have fun and enjoy.
Yum. :)

The Girl in the Picture

The girl in the picture is Ari. She is my best frann! haha.
When I went to my first university in Nashville, TN we were in a collective group together and we first bonded over a song, "American Boy" by Estelle. :) sigh :)
We've been friends ever since. Also, she introduced me to Calamari [delish]. We spent practically ever moment together when we were outta class. Of course, we had our ups and downs but we were still best friends. She is a sista from another mista. :) My real sister thinks she's been replaced by Ari but it isn't true. Ari's is my best friend and I would have to say that we share a bond that I can't exactly put my finger on but it's there and never to be broken.[how cheesy :)] but I do love her and miss her very much, but yessh that is Ari...in the picture.

This is our Jon Nix face. :)

Christmas Time's A Coming

I cannot believe it's the middle of December already!
Man, time has flown by. I say this every year but I remember the new year's of 2000, when the USA was gonna be hit by Y2K and the grandparents had food that would last for like 10 years.
Oh my Nanny. :)
Let's see. Today, I woke up put some pants on and decide to get up in that order haha not really, but anyway. I get up and Momma had come home from work and Bekah was in a fluster about something. I didn't know, I just wanted to brush my teeth. After that I was supposed to go help Daddy at the church to decorate for Ladies night tonight which is what the Graves' ladies are hosting tonight. So, first thing I know is that Dad's not over there and Bekah's the middle of making cookies=yummy. :) She makes the first batch and Momma criticizes that they weren't done exactly right and they weren't. So they are giving "tone" to each other but I remind my dear female family that we couldn't do anything about it now and that we should concentrate on the next batch. Momma went to bed, so Bekah and I make the balls of cookies to put in the little muffin pan so that they would get the shape we wanted and Bekah's gotta get to school and she's getting ready to go as I take them out of the oven and start to put the Reese's cups in there. If you want the recipe just comment and say so and I'll get it to you. Okay, so a key point in my emotions this morning are that my sister is graduating in two days on December 17, 2009. I am very proud of her in what she has accomplished. So, she says, "I'm leaving" and I say "Wait, say goodbye" and she's like I did say good bye and I'm like nuh uh. haha but I told her it's not goodbye without a hug, a kiss, and a dance around the kitchen. haha she did all three and that right there, is why I love her. She is one of the most kind, caring, loving person you will ever get to meet, those who are lucky enough to get to. She'll make you laugh, she'll make you cry and you'll never forget her because she makes such an impact on everyone she spends any amount of time with. I love my sister and I don't think I could live a day without her. So Sissy, get prepared, Clotene's a coming. !!!! Muwahahahaha !!!!
I love you, Bekah.
