Snow. Snow. Snow.

It is about seven o'clock in the morning of CHRISTMAS EVE.

I cannot sleep on days like these, it's just impossible.

This morning, I woke up, looked out my window and saw that my front yard was covered in SNOW. This might not be fascinating to you, but in stupid Texas this is a rare occasion. So yay! I was so excited, I actually ran out there in a short sleeve t-shirt and my pajama pants, just to feel the snow.

Now, I am going to go into the living room, open the curtains real wide (so I can see the snow falling), grab a blanket and watch some seriously amazing Christmas movies.


Merry Christmas.

P.S. I do believe my cat is even more excited about the snow than I am. It's hilarious.

P.S.S. Yesterday, I watched The Polar Express three times in a row! And like, twice the day before that. It's the PERFECT Christmas movie. I love it.

Fabulous weekend.

It's Christmas Break! Hooray!

Tomorrow, (December 22nd) is one of my best friend, Shelbie's, birthday. To celebrate her SWEET SIXTEEN, we spent a weekend in Ft. Worth. And, of course you want to hear about it, so here we go! :)

As most of you readers would know, we made it to STATE in football. This was more then exciting for our little town. Lucky for my friends and I, the state championship took place in a town near Ft. Worth. The game was great. The outcome was unfortunate (we lost) but it was still really fun. Audrey and I basically spent the entire time dancing, but that's just how we roll.

The stadium was like, ridiculously sweet and huge. We sat on the end and kind of in the middle. Where we were sitting (technically, we stood the entire time) everyone was QUIET. And by quiet, I mean STONES. This is the state game, people. What the heck! So, me and my friends looked pretty dang ridiculous screaming our lungs out and cheering reallly loud the entire game. Unlike most, we did NOT give up when we sadly fell behind.

GOOD JOB BOYS! You made it to State, and that alone is beyond amazing. Needless to say, you had a freaking awesome season this year, and I'll never forget it.

Enough of that.

After the game, we went to THE MAGIC TIME MACHINE.

If you are unfamiliar, it's a resturaunt. They dress up as characters and pretty much just act crazy the whole day. It's great. Our waitor was Shaggy from Scooby Doo. He was beyond hilarious. 'Satan' was funny too, until he started hitting on April (shelbies mom) hardcore. Then he became awkward. But that's beside the point.

When we had to go to the bathroom, we lined up behind Shaggy. We had to run through the entire place screaming at the top of our lungs, "GOT TO GO" Shaggy would holler, "TINKLE WINKLE!!!" we would scream.

It was fun. The food and desserts were tremendous, as well.

Leaving The Magic Time Machine, we went through the cutest little downtown area. It was completely covered in Christmas lights and decked out in decorations. It was almost like a mini- New York. We loved it.

By this time, it was getting late so we looked for a hotel. We came accross the Hilton and decided that we only turn 16 once, so what the heck! It was extremely fancy. Everyone inside had long formal dresses with expensive jewelry, while we trucked on in, in our T-shirts and to-go boxes, making too much noise and feeling out of place -yet not caring. Ha.

Leave it us, to get locked out of our room, like twice, and not be able to get in. We camped in the hallway for quite some time. It was funny. The next morning we went down to the Java shop for some delicious Caramel Fraps. But while in line, Audrey and I dropped our bags and snuck up the stairs into the International Sweets, ballrooms, and much more. It was fantastic. I've never seen such a fancy place.

Anyway. The entire next day was dedicated to shopping at the Grapevine Mall (and Arlington). However, Audrey and I didn't get much done. We DID try on super cute dresses in Forever 21, but being the fatties that we are, we ripped them all the way down because we couldn't get them off.

Embarassing, yes. Hilarious, yes.

After dashing out of the store, we made a somewhat split-decision to dye our hair. If you know us at all, you know that we are some pretty wild children who don't really care about much. So we decided, What the hay! Let's do it.

It took four hours. She now has platinum blonde hair and I have black hair. With a big pink streak. We look pretty crazy now, but NO REGRETS!

After lunch at the Rainforest Cafe, some more shopping and an extremely fun/entertaining ride home, our weekend had sadly ended.

BUT, I still have the crazy hair to remember it all. Hahahaha, wow.

Love my life.
