ATJ Allstars YOU are Jamfest National Champions!

Where do we get to go next?!

DISNEY WORLD!!!!!!!! (:

I am so excited that my dance team is getting the honor to go to Worlds! Worlds is like the Olympics for dance and is hopefully to be in the Olympics in the near future. And both jazz and hip hop received an invitation and a bid to go, which is HUGE! Especially for being a first year team! Pretty impressive, huh? (;

After a longgggggg weekend competition, we deserved every bit of this! I'll post pictures and videos sooner or later, just thought I'd share with you all! (: I'M SO STINKING EXCITED! WOOT WOOT!

Oh Mother...

My poor mother is living up to her becoming an old lady...

So today we went to Target, because we haven't been there in almost a week! Gasp! Anyways, we were going there because I needed some 'retail therapy' and my poor brother needs clothes. He has none due to my cleaning of his closet yesterday!(:

So, we go to the toddler section and look around, nothing is really calling out to us. But we did get Molly two more dresses, a cute shirt, and the matching jacket to a pair of pants we already bought. I need help, I cannot go somewhere without shopping for my dear sister.

Getting to the point! So we walk around some more, run into some old friends, and find some 100 calorie snacks. We walk back and get something, and head to the check out. We passed the snacks again, and this happens....

"Mom, should we get another box?"
"Why? Did we eat them all?"

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! We picked up the first box like ten minutes before, how did I have time to eat all of those? My poor mother, she is in pain from her 'Nemo fin' as I call it, and she claims she was "delirious!" Yeah right, we all know the truth, right? (;

Has it Really Been 4 Days?!

I feel like it has been FOREVER since I last blogged, but I did on Monday! Well, this week has not been a good one for myself. I woke up Wednesday at 3 in the morning and I'm sure you know what happened, thank goodness we had a snow day so I didn't miss any school! But, the bug has been with me still and I do not feel all that better!

I know you all want to hear/see about my sock addiction, yet I am just not motivated to go upstairs and dig all my socks out for a picture... so I'll choose another topic. Oh I got an idea! My addiction to shopping for little Miss Molly!

Many people think that I love shopping for myself, probably because we go to Target at least once every two weeks! Its sad, really, but totally worth it! But I hate, hate, HATE shopping for myself because of my height issues and lack of patience. It is very rare that I find anything I like while shopping, and usually the trips to the mall turn out like this....
This was taken right around Christmas 2007, and as you can tell we were having a real blast! NOT. haha (:

My solution to my shopping issue? Shop for others, of course! With mommy and daddy's credit cards, too! How dare I spend my own money! Haha, but recently I cannot stop looking at stuff online for my little sister!

My mom and I always have such a grand time shopping for the little princess, and I'm not exaggerating on the princess title! Go look in her closet, better yet, I'll take a photo of it soon! The child has more clothes than I do, and that is A LOT! But we don't want the little cutie to be naked, do we? HECK NO! So we buy her anything I want, after all, I'm the original princess of the house and need to have one to train!

Now, after talking about Molly, you're probably wondering, what about Carson?! Well, you see, boys just are not fun to shop for! They don't wear cute little dresses, hair bows, and sparkly shoes! (Well, maybe some do!) So, I don't find shopping for boys fun. No offense little brother, you're still my favorite Chinese brother!(:

In other news, my mother complains that I do not have enough pictures on here. Partially because all of my pictures are on the dinosaur computer, and I like using her laptop better! Maybe she should buy me one for China, eh?!(: So, I will start posting more pictures on here just to make my momma happier.

Hope you all have a fun and HEALTHY weekend, it seems like ours will just be a fun one. ):

An Award, For ME?!?!

Due to the fact that I have been blogging for about three days, I was shocked when Ms. Peggy told me that she had given me an award!

Here are the rules to receive this award:
"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find friends and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships will be propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

MY OH MY! I'm super excited, and made my day a million times better after a hard decision. You can read about it on my mom's blog. Today was a difficult, yet rewarding day in our household.

I do not really know who to give this award to, mostly because the people I would give it to were already awarded with it and because I have to go read part of a book we started today. So how about I give it to all my fellow readers? You all deserve it!(:

On another note... due to my addiction to blogging already (yes, it has only been 3 DAYS! haha) I decided to delete my Facebook and Myspace. I am a free woman, and now have all my time to spend it here on the bloggy world. (: I have so many things to post, I don't know what to do next!
Here is a list of ideas, tell me what you want to know:
- my love for socks
- my future plans
- my addiction for shopping for little Molly
- a letter to both my brother and sister
- the family love for Target!

But for now, I'm off to do homework, shower, help Carson with his homework, talk with my mom for support, and to watch Jon & Kate Plus Eight!!!!(: I cannot express my excitement to the new episodes for this show. Have a good night!

The Adventure of the Night!
Dedicated to Chris Anderson (:

So, as you all know, it is Super Bowl Sunday! And usually, there are parties where the men yell at the television, the women talk about everything, and the children destroy the house. You all know what I'm talking about, right?

Well, today I had to start the day off with a 'mock competition' with my dance team. You go in the room, dance in full costume, and get judged by your teachers. Did I mention you had to PAY to dance in front of the teachers you dance for every week? Yes, it is bologna and selfish on their part. Anyways... I have done damage again to my ankle while dancing, AGAIN! It hurts super bad and is difficult to walk on. After the competition, we move onto practice #2! Yes, I had a two hour practice and was quite difficult considering I wore a high top gym shoe for an ankle brace, I'm quite creative! (:

Dance was over, thank goodness, and we were going to take my friend Kelsey home. I told my mother about my injury, and she was not pleased, but thought partying would make me happier. After all, I was not going to make dinner by myself, so why not enjoy the chili cook-off at the party?

Now this is were the good part comes in....
My mom was driving down the street that the party was, and could not really remember which house it was. Anyone want to guess what we did? So, we pull into the driveway and park the car, and go in through the garage. My mom noticed a sign that was not there before saying, "Wet shoes here please!" but my mom decided we could keep them on anyways. Good thing we did... I open the door leading to the house and I hear this loud barking, and my mom goes "Oh don't worry, its just their little dog!" BOY OH BOY WAS SHE WRONG! The dog came to the door, and it was a pitbull! (sorry if it is spelled wrong!) My mom was curious, but decides we should still proceed... and when we walk in she notices the kitchen was a little different! Well, there is no possible way for this family to redecorate their kitchen in the 45 minutes she was gone.

Any guesses yet?!?! So we're in the kitchen, and everyone else is in the living room glued to the television. My not-so-smart mother says, "OH MY GOSH! This is the wrong house!" She is a pure genius that mother of mine is, how did she get a job as a teacher?! Hahaha, anyways I'm freaking out, trying to run to the van with a hurt ankle, and am yelling,"Run before they press charges and we get arrested!" My mom could not stop giggling to save her life, but we made it to the car and booked out of there!

This picture sums up my feelings at this point...
This picture was taken about an hour before we met Carson. (:

Finally, we reached our destination. The correct house with all our friends from church and the delicious free dinner sitting there waiting for me to consume it. After my mom told the story 15 times or so, she wanted to make sure that it didn't get to her Sunday school teacher/close family friend Chris, probably because he would mock her to death, but hey, that is why I got a blog. To tell the stories of my mother to save her from the humiliation on her blog.

So there you go Chris, feel free to share next Sunday with the whole class!

And tomorrow I go back to school... it is a sad thing. But hey, I had a six day weekend, so maybe I should go get a few days of education in me before my brain turns into mush! (:
