My Birthday

This last weekend was my 19th Birthday. I had a party with friends the day before and I went home on Sunday, my official birthday for dinner with the fam. It was so much fun. Here are a few pictures from my party with my new camera!Here I am so happy to be 19

My friend Amy made this delicious chocolate peanut butter cake, which was stuffed with Reeses Peanut Butter cups. Mmm... Delish.
Me and my roommate Melodie. We are weird.

My birthday was a success, I had fun, I got to hang out with my favorite friends and I got to go home for dinner. All in all, it was a pretty good day.

Martha Who?

Move aside Martha Stewart, there's a new Martha in town (Yes, that is completely cheesy, but I'm bored so give me a break).

That's right. I have become a Domestic Diva, if you will. This past week I dug up grass and planted a flower garden, painted the front room and kitchen with my roommates, and we hosted a lovely barbecue on the side of our house last night. Also, I was asked to sew dresses for the little girls in my sister's friend's wedding. I think that will be great fun.

I love doing crafty things like that. I like doing stuff that makes things look better, hence the painting and the flower garden. I really love sewing because I can actually wear the finished product. It just seems more practical. I cannot stand scrapbooking. It is so stinkin' expensive, time consuming and I HATE cleaning up all the scraps of paper later. In my mind, why would I spend 15 bucks on ONE scrapbook page that hardly anyone notices, when I can use that 15 dollars to buy some super cute fabric, make a dress and wear it all around. I do however think the whole idea of scrapbooking is a good idea, saving memories for posterity and whatnot, but I choose to use a program called Book Smart. It can be found at You make your own book and then they publish it and send it to you. And it only costs about 30 dollars, that's what I am talking about.

P.S. I posted this and then my sister Michelle sent me this picture that she photoshopped, so I had to put it up there. Thanks Michelle!
