Where did Elle go?

In to a bleak, dark, ice storm of doom. That's where. This week was awful, I think it's one of the worst ice storms Kentucky has ever seen. There were trees, and limbs everywhere, 500,000 people without power, and the roads were horrible.

This pretty much cleared up, until today. So we released early from school, because it snowed like 4 inches. The most snow I've ever seen at once. My mom is always yelling at me to not walk to Kmart or McDonald's in the snow with my friends because "snow makes the roads slippery." And guess what. She doesn't pick me up from school. So I have to walk home on roads that haven't been salted yet, with reckless teen drivers. Oh yeah, because that's way better than the safe sidewalk to Kmart. Anyways, I had to walk all the way home, in the snow, by myself. It's usually no big deal to walk home but today it was horrible. I fell multiple times and now have bruises all up and down my legs. Thanks Mom.

Sorry it's been like 935093059 years since I updated. I promise I will blog more, soon. This was just a quick update. Thanks so much to everyone who kept reading, commenting, and following. You guys rock.

Gosh Darn It!

Lame title!

So I had this big, deep post about family, but instead I guess i'll just post that tommorow and give you a little update.

First off, Merry (late) Christmas, and Happy New Year!

Christmas was pretty great for me. I got my camera (Canon Rebel XSi) and a guide book to Maine. That's right, WE ARE GOING TO MAINE! I would like to say I remained calm when reciving this, but really I was screaming, crying, and shaking. It was pretty amazing.

Now, for bad news.
Thats right, I had to sit through two days of watching my cousins (who I will elaborate on in the next post) play their laptops without me. IT WAS NOT FUN!

Christmas Eve day, my mom walked in the door with none other than, can you guess? A Crock Pot! So I had to tell her, but she ended up keeping mine so it all worked out.

Jonas Brothers last night on Dick Clarks Rockin' New Year's Eve was amazing!! Joe and Taylor together. Awkwarddd... And I think Nick was high but you know...it's all good.

Anyways, sorry for the lame post. I just thought I would update you on my sad life. Have a happy day. (And check out my Flickr! ----->)

(Note. I know the picture is oddly random. But it's what popped up when I searched for Maine. So there you have, The Maine. Go check them out, they are pretty amazing. (: )

The Crock Pot Delimma

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Last Friday, my friends and I went to the mall on a mission; to purchase my mother a Crock Pot for Christmas. Our current Crock Pot is from the 80s, and I think its about time we get a new one. I had researched all these Crock Pots, and had decided the model I wanted, everything was set. We went to Macys, and I found my CrockPot, while also paying a small fortune for the thing. Instead of putting my dear Crock Pot in a bag, the lady at the counter attached this strap thing to it, leaving me to carry a freaking Crock Pot all through the mall.


So I carry the heavy thing for about two more hours, and I get quite a few odd stares. We counted 17, not to mention the "Can I help you? Nice Crock Pot." as we entered each store.

After the mall, I came home and wrapped my lovely present, and set it under the tree. Victory!

Today, my mother was looking through her Crock Pot cookbook, and I dropped the hint "Wouldn't It be nice if you had a new Crock Pot? One you could fit a chicken in?" Then she goes "Yes. But no one get me a Crock Pot!

AIJKLFJLAKFJALKFJAKGJSKDJGS NOW WHAT. I can't drive 45 minutes to go get another present. She is just going to have to deal with her dumb Crock Pot. Ugh, thanks mom.

Me and my man pants :)

Oh, man. It's been awhile. A LONG while. And I have alot to say, but lets start with something simple. Black Friday.

So, it's November 30th and I'm up at 6 AM in the morning. There is something wrong with that! Anyways, half an hour and a black coffee from Starbucks later, we are almost at the mall. (One of the two malls in the state. Haha) So anyways, we are waiting in this really long line to enter the Best Buy parking lot, when we see two cars that looked like they crashed into each other, and a ton of smoke. Not only that, but there was a firetruck, and a news crew. So my mom and I are freaking out, then she starts yelling "It might blow up! Get your camera out, this could be your Pulitzer!" So my mom and I sit there spazzing for a good 10 minutes. Finally, we get into the parking lot, and guess what? It was some guy barbecuing ribs for charity! The smoke was from the grill! I just about died.
Continuing on, I am happy to say I discovered something in Target. Something so amazing, so unique, so beautiful, I really have no idea how I lived my life without them. You know what it is? Man pants. $5 sweatpants from the men's section at Target. You thought it was going to be something pretty and shinny didn't you? Well I'm sorry to disappoint, but seriously. You have got to try these things! I bought 8 pairs. So now I wear man pants every day to school, and I have to say, I've never been happier. It's all about enjoying the little things, even if it is just a cheap pair of pants. :)

My Condolences to the Tree Man

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This morning before church I was in a rush trying to apply my makeup. While brushing foundation along my cheek I noticed something; a freckle. Then I notices something else, another freckle! and another, and another, and another, and another. There was a direct line of freckles from the corner of my nose all the way down to my shoulder. Now I usually don't mind my Nick Jonas-esque freckles, but this is ridiculous!!
All during church this got me thinking, what if they start out a freckles, but turn into moles? Or warts?! What if, Heaven forbid, I turn into the tree man!?
Poor Dede, bless his little heart. This guy, was in an accident when he was 15, then BAM! Started growing moles everywhere. His hands and feet turned into what looks like tree branches, or...part of a tree. He couldn't work or support his family, his body was just covered in pounds of warts. Gross I know, but incredibly sad too.
Thankfully the tree man is getting medical help now, but I feel so bad for him. So lesson to you, and myself, next time you are upset about the freckles that may be scattered across your nose, or in my case, in a line down your neck, remember it could always be worse. Be thankful for what you have, be thankful for not resembling a tree.

Today was one of those days...

Where it rains like crazy, and you and 200 other kids huddle under the tiny front porch of school, trying to stay dry, and then you start to wonder why are you doing this? So you take off running through the grass, letting the rain soak through your clothes, and letting your hair fly wild, and you just spin in circles enjoying who you are, and where you are. No matter what. Even if what awaits you at home is 2 hours of piano practice, and a screaming plastic baby that now sits safely on the porch with your paranoid friend. And all you want to do is run home in the rain, but instead you have to wait for a ride because of that stupid plastic baby. Life lesson; don't get pregnant in high school. I just have my plastic baby for a day, but the girl on the porch, she has hers for a lifetime.

I miss you, I miss your smile.

Jim! Why did you have to go? Poor Melinda, and what about the baby? What happens now?

I've been watching the show Ghost Whisperer for 4 years now, and as of last night I think my life officially ended. Jim...died! Seriously, I can't eat, I can't sleep, I can't stop crying, and its pretty pathetic that I'm getting so torn up about a character on a TV show.

Well, I guess I'll just go morn some more now. I'll post a real entry later, I just needed to express my sorrow. Oh man I miss Jim...
