Midwestern Girl

Keeping track of the days is difficult because I don’t post everyday. It sounds like a good idea in theory, but it’s hard.

Yesterday was a lovely day. Happy Father’s day to all the daddy’s, or soon to be daddy’s (; I had a great time with my family. We had another family dinnah!

Sweet potato fries, BBQ chicken, and sweet corn. Slightly southern? Awesome. [I want to be southern. So. Badly.]

It was great family bonding time; I really enjoy my family time. My dad & brother are quite sarcastic which makes for an interesting meal. (;

My dad & I at my junior prom….

Happy Father’s Day, daddy<3 I love you.

[even though he doesn’t read this.]

My favorite postsecret of the week:

I spent the last two days with Adam too! He came over apres le diner hier. We hung out and had a wonderful time! We took a walk and I had a photo shoot! A southern photo shoot!

Highlights….

I a midwestern girl; my hair is long, my nails are short, and my budget is small.

Day Three: Twisted.

Guess what happened guys. I twisted my ankle yesterday.  So sad 😦

It’s feeling a little better today, but I am now limping everywhere. I feel like a kicked puppy. It happened when I was playing some intense ultimate frisbee yesterday with my friends. Fun, but painful and hard. Great exercise though (;

Today I went to church. I went to Catholic mass all year at school and my senior year of high school so attending non-denominational services is definitely a different experience! It’s still a little out of my comfort zone, but I love the atmosphere. There’s so much love for God and Jesus. The pastor has powerful sermons. Love.

Happy Pentecost to those who celebrate. If you don’t, happy Sunday (;

It’s one of my obsessions. I wrote my college admissions essay on one of the books. (Yup, it means that much to me.)

Favorite secret of the week:

I am super lucky to have the parents that I do. They are always there for me, every day, every minute, every moment of my life. I know I will always have a home wherever they are.

Last night was a hard night. I’m not sure why, but after one or two good weeks, I always have a bad night. It’s probably how everybody feels right? It’s normal, I think. Luckily I had one of my best friends, Emma, reach out to me last night to make me feel better. I don’t know if she realizes what a difference she made last night. She stopped the demons from getting to my soul and she stopped the thoughts from coming. For that I don’t know if I can thank her enough.

Today is going to be a better day. I am obviously not going to exercise because of my ankle, but I am just having a lazy day. Aren’t those the best? After I finish this post I’m going to curl up in my bed and watch True Blood. We are cooking salmon on the grill today. Unfortunately it’s only in the mid-60s today, but at least it’s not raining! (;

Sammi got her new camera today. Me = super mega uber jealous! She is so creative. I can’t wait to see what kinds of  beautiful pictures she takes!

For some reason I was obsessed with the chocolate strawberry smoothie I made yesterday.
