5 Question Friday

1. What giveaway would you like to do on your blog?
A cruise! That would be amazing!

2. If you had to choose between natural artistic ability and natural athletic ability, which would it be?
Thats a tough one! Ive always been jealous of those that had artistic ability. I wish I could just sit down and create something. But with natural athletic ability comes the opportunity for college scholarships. I would go with that.

3. Do you ditch the coat the minute it becomes "spring" or are you a holdout for more cool temps?
I tend to ditch the winter coat for a fleece instead. I hate winter jackets. They are so bulky!

4. What would you do if you won the mega millions lotto of 1/2 billion dollars?
Pay off my parents bills and such. Put away money for my sister and I's college. Go on a nice vacation. Donate to charity. Invest some of it. Put the rest in the bank for later use.

5. You are at a hotel by yourself...what do you do?
In a hotel room by myself or have an entire hotel to myself? I wouldnt stay at a hotel all by myself because that would be freaky! If I had just gotten a room by myself I would watch tv, eat junk food, and relax.

Random Ramblings

Well softball has started.
Im not as excited about it as I once was.
Oh well.
Nothing wrong with another season on the bench again...I guess.

I can still become the crazy cat lady instead of my other plan on pro-softball player!
Is there even a pro-softball team for girls or guys?

Im enjoying my mini-vacation!
Its been really relaxing.
Im expecting a weight gain.

Thats my boy Boots sleeping like an angel!

I almost got lost the other day but than I found the road I was looking for.
Good thing too!
I like my reputation of having a fabulous sense of direction.
Boys are stupid.
Especially when they hurt my friends.
Im thinking its time to have a girls night out.

St.Pattys Day and weekend

This past weekend was interesting to say the least.
I found out I got on National Honor society on Friday.
My parents wanted to celebrate and go out to dinner!
I didnt complain and it was nice spending time with my family.
I woke up at 6am and drove to Solo and Ensemeble.
It was an interesting experience.
Im not a singer normally.
Our group got a first even thought the majority of us had colds and no voices.

My Mom took my sister and I to breakfast afterwards.
We drove around a small cute town.
Saw where they built huge ships.
Sarah was dealing with a cold.
She sang one of her solos and thought she did horrible.
Singing is really important to her so she was upset.
I went to pick her up.
She liked laying on me and complaining about how horrible she did.
Even though I bet she did fine!

Thats my Grandma ready about making majitos.

March Madness has begun.
Lots of time wasted in class watching basketball.
My friends prefer sleeping instead.
I went to see an Irish band on Saturday night.
They were good but I almost feel asleep.
The damn bagpipes!

I then went to my friends Bonfire.
I left around 12:30 because I wasnt feeling well.
Im still fighting off a cold.
I then got a call at 3am.
My friend was crying hysterically saying I needed to come over.
So I hauled myself out of bed and went over.
It was like an episode from Jersey Shore over there!
No lie.
I didnt make it home till around 5am.

Then on Sunday I found my prom dress!

Prom Dress

I finally bought my prom dress!
Ive been stressing over finding one for a month.
After looking at stores and online I finally found one on craigslist!
The lady was asking $300.
Which was a bit over my budget.
My parents agreed to go look at it.
While I was putting it on my Dad and Sister started talking with the family.
Apparently they were a christian family who had kids attended private school.
So my Mom finally asked how much they wanted for the dress....
She said since it was going to a christian family she only wanted $200!
It was amazing!

These pictures are just from the craigslist add!
I did ask permission to use them!

It has really pretty bead work.
The pictures don't do it justice!
I'm so happy that the stress of dress shopping is over!

Spring is here already?

Today is a b-e-a-u-tiful day! I had such a hard time focusing in class because the outside looked so inviting. Thank goodness for laptops! I'm sitting outside enjoying the warm weather while typing this.

When I got into my car I saw that the temperature read 78!!!
We have had the most wonderful winter ever.
Warm temperatures, a few inches of snow, and spring decided to come early!

During a typical Wisconsin winter we would still be covered with a foot a snow and more in the forecast. I prefer grass and kids playing in shorts over that!

Im not a loser

Rae is a loser.

Of course I wouldn't be calling myself that. Some one Sarah  decided to steal my phone and write a blog post. To bad she failed and it went to drafts instead. I thought I would just add on from there.
I may or may not have participated in a water fight involving rubber ducks....during a baby shower.
I had a job interview yesterday! I wasn't feeling well at school but I managed. The lady was super nice and she said I needed to get my friends to apply too. I'm hoping that means I got the job. Since she is trusting my judgement in friends. She said she will call me in about a week.

The Asian, The Guatemalan, and the German

Oh the conversations we have in study hall...

Shannon: Steve and Tyler were being mean to me today.
Nancy: They told her to eat rice....
Shannon: Ive decided that I'm ricing his house! He better prepare for cleaning out his gutters! And rice pudding is going in our sling shots!
Nancy: Those boys were being very mean.
Shannon: I told Steve to go pick some avocados and rub them together. Then I told Tyler to go visit his uncle Hitlers grave. So who is with me? We are ricing his house tonight!

This was Sarah's reaction to this whole conversation!

The girls basketball team had a game two hours away!
They were trying to get a fan bus but nobody was signing up.
So Sarah and I signed up to show our support.
Thinking that we would look like good friends but since nobody else would sign up they would cancel the bus.
Well more people signed up and we were forced to go.
We did bond with two sophomores and a freshmen that we never talked with before.
So it wasn't all that bad!

Just thought I would throw in a picture of my cat sleeping.
He is so cute!

5 Question Friday

1. Where is your favorite vacation spot and why?
Idaho! I have family there and the scenary is gorgeious! Snowmobiling in the winter is a blast. Its just a great place full of potatoes and some Mormons from Utah.

2. What is your biggest guilty pleasure?

3. What is your favorite fashion trend right now? Or, in the past?
I love me some good ole' skinny jeans! I really hope flare jeans don't come back. You can dress up or down skinny jeans so easy. They look cute in most outfits! I just love them. Ask me this question in 10 years when I gain a bunch of weight. I assure you skinny jeans will not be my answer. I also love scarfs but I'm really picky on ways to wear one. Which is why I never do!

4. What are your spring break plans?
I'm going to Burlington, WI with one of my friends. Its such a fun, cute town! Plus her aunt owns a restaurant down there. Free food!

5. What baby names do you hate?
*I hope not to offend anyone during this question*
 I'm not a big fan of plain-jane names. I like uniqueness and you can only have so many Sarah's(love you Sarah!) or Ashleys in a school, etc. My poor children will probably have some crazy name that everybody else is shaking their head at. Oh well.
 I also dislike all the Aidens, Jadens, Hadens,etc.
