Will You Be My Valentine?

15 02 2010

Hey all! Happy Valentine’s day! I hope you are all spending it with the ones you love 🙂

I have had a CRAZY week! Late nights, LOTS of studying, papers, CRAZINESS! I guess that’s just high school though!

School has slowed down a bit, but I do have another paper due on Thursday. I actually finished about half of it, and I am SO happy that I got that much done. No more late nights for me!

I have lots to share so let’s do this post GC-style…with NUMBERS!

1) Homecoming Dance

Wow, oh wow! SO MUCH FUN! I am so blessed to go to a school where I know all the seniors by name and personally, where I was not afraid to dance my heart out, and everyone is so sweet. Well, most people! Haha. Anyways, I had an absolute blast with my friends and felt like a princess. Slow dancing is quite FUN!

zachandjess2I would LOVE to show y’all more photos of myself. There are some REALLY pretty ones, but I have to protect my friends (and myself too!), you guys understand 😉

All in all, one of the best nights of my LIFE.

2) Grocery Store fun!

A trip to the grocery store was definitely in order today! I hit the JACKPOT!

  • Raspberry CHOBS
  • Pineapple CHOBS
  • Pomegranate CHOBS
  • Strawberry Banana CHOBS
  • Barney Butter
  • Flat out wraps
  • hummus
  • apples
  • bananas
  • kashi cereal/kashi bars
  • sweet potato

3) Pumping some IRON

I have been having AWESOME workouts lately. Yesterday’s was legs+abs and today’s was arms+abs. I love the feeling of getting stronger, which I definitely am. My core strength has improved a lot! My goal is a six pack by summer. Well, maybe not a six pack, but some serious definition. (Note: this is just a fun goal—I love my abs already!)

I realized after my arm workout today that I NEED to invest in two things:

  1. Workout (Weight Lifting) Gloves
  2. A workout journal—I cannot possibly remember all the exercises I do, how many reps/what weight—it’s just too much!

My hands hurt SO bad and were all red by the end of my workout today! Any suggestions on the gloves? I’m sure April will have some 🙂

4) Love is in the air!

As I mentioned in my earlier post I saw the boy for some time tonight. I gave him some chocolate, a picture of us, more chocolate, etc. You get the picture! You know what they say…the way to a guy’s heart is through his stomach! He got my the most lovely dozen of roses and the absolute cutest teddy bear!

If you are reading, thank you so much Zach! I love them! image 5) EXCITING NEWS!

My super duper exciting news is…………………………

I WILL BE GOING TO UGANDA THIS SUMMER! I cannot go into extreme detail, but I will be going with my best friend (and others!) this summer. I could not be more excited. It will be a life changing experience! I am SO READY!


These are just the highlights of my delicious eats lately!! 100_0167

Verse of the Day: Ephesians 4:2.

"Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love."

Have a great week, loves!
