Oh dear Blogging, how long have we been apart? Let me count the days...

woah woah woah.
it's been a while since I've been on this blog. But I've missed it! I like making cute blog pages and I'm just a little obsessed with making adorable pages. and I want to make Judy happy:)
so. my life has been pretty stressful, i tell you. classes have been hard, officer elections were heck week, and my friends haven't been all that nice to me lately.
oh, and it's raining. that's a downer.


I won elections! (SBO President!)
I passed 8th grade! phew!
I've made some awesome friends these past couple months, and I'm very grateful to them!
I saw Les Mis on Friday night! WOW! GOOD SHOW!!!
and I had a pretty awsome time at Madi's party last night. I don't usually hang out with people Saturday nights, but I'm glad I did!!!

And me and Carli are watching Pride and Prejudice tommorrow. oh yes, the five hour one!

So i have a lot to be grateful for. I'm just done with school and mean kids/teachers though. I can do this, i can do this!!!

So, funny story time: I was in health a couple days ago and I heard Jenson talking to someone.
jenson: "My sister is almost as tan as my adopted african sister!"
me: "jenson, you're sister is from ethipoia!"

turns out ethiopia is in africa! who knew?!

Classy Classical

I'm having a creative overload. Too many fabric flowers I wanna make, not enough tutorials!

I cannot stand when people put a picture of a super adorable flower on their blog (yes, i've been blog stalking) and they don't tell you how to make it! Ugh! So frusturating. So, I have been problem solving.

I'm really trying to get all the nicest things. The nicest flowers, cleaner bedroom (GASP?!?!) and I've actually been listening to CLASSICAL music. What's wrong, you ask? I honestly don't really know. I just have been in a creative zone for the past few weeks. it's been interesting.

anyway, new subject. I've changed my hairstyle once again! Now it's a short A-line with bangs! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the bangs so so so much! I couldn't believe I could pull them off! I felt weirdly proud of myself.

Anyway, Honors Classes have been getting tough. I've had some test score issues. i don't really know what to do yet. i'll probably just try my best on everything else. ugh. school is so lame.

So. what now? Nothing really. I've blogged as much as my blogging heart can take for a while. So ta-ta for now!

Blogging blogging, oh how I love blogging!

Look at Blog World, Emmie is back!

I decided to take a break from this blog for a while. I was waaaayyyy busy with homework and friends and family and church. But now I'm back baby!

So. My life is very stressful, but it's grand too! My honors classes are going great, and I'm still deciding whether to take AP classes next year. I think I probably will.

My friends and family are great! They are all doing well with everything. So am I.

I've become obsessed with fabric hair flowers. Obsessed. I've always been pretty crafty, but this is the first time I've EMBRASSED it. (My flowers look pretty great, buy the way)

I changed by blog name because I just got sick of Pure Joy. Because, let's face it. I'm not joyful all the time. But, I am a Princess waiting for my happily ever after, and my prince and my big fancy castle! Even if I don't end up marrying royalty, I'll still be a princess.

That's all for today folks!

Ode to Elysia

I've decided to dedicate this post to my amazing little sister, Elysia. I love her with all my soul. She's quite a character.

Quotes? I think so!

"Elysia, you crack me up!" "You crap me up too mommy!"
"I have a belly, like Santa Clause!"
"Mom, I gotta tell you a secret. I have to go wake Emmie up and give her a treat."
"Elysia, who's prettier, Emmie or Ozzy?" "OZZY!" (Ozzy is our doggy, just to inform you)
She calls Rootbeer "Rootberry".
"I wanna watch TV." "Okay then, go move the pillow." In a napolean dynamite fashion: "Fine! GOSH!"
"Emmie, don't cry. Santa's coming to town!"
"Pear is an evil kitty." "Why?" "She scratched my belly."
"You say, NO NO PEARL when she hurts your face. Right mom?"
"Mom. You stink."
"Can I bonk your head?"

I love her. She is quite hilarious.

Letters to Santa

Life... has been insane.

I haven't been able to blog in a loooonnngg time. So this is gonna be long. Good fun!

My life is s l o w l y getting much better. No school for two weeks. Pure Bliss. I am so happy. So. Freaking. Happy. And Christmas is coming soon. Who wants to be Scrooge at Christmas? Not me. My friends are being super great and making me smile. I love 'em.

But something has been bothering me.

It just kind of feels like no one has time for me anymore. Ma and Pa have to work, my brothers and sister are just busy with friends and tormenting me and my friends seem to just not care or notice. It's not like I'm ignored or shunned or anything, I just want someone to appreciate me and want to just be with ME.

Anyway, it's a small problem that will hopefully soon be fixed. Now, I have to write a letter to Santa. Who doesn't have to?

Dear Santa,
Ho-ho-ho! Merry Christmas! I have been pretty good this year. I've gotten into a few fights with siblings, but that's pretty much it. So I request the following,

A camera (Pleasepleaseplease)
chocolate oranges
and a pony.

Thank you for thinking about this deeply.
Sincerily, Emmie!

The longest blog entry in the whole wide world.

So much to go over... so little blogging space.

So. Choir concert was really really good. I think my solo with Harley went very well. But, there were some girls that sang Silver Bells, and one of them was a little tone deaf... or a lot. I felt bad, but I really couldn't stop laughing. And the ninth grade song, fa la la la la was the funniest thing ever. I was ready to pee my pants. And Beth playing the piano just made it waayyy better. I loved it. Loved. It.

Also, me and Annie and Erica made a HUGE fort in my room, and then just sat in it and talked for like, three hours. Fun fun. I love those girls.

Yoga really does work!

Yoga works. It makes you feel so good and healthy. Yes, I tried Yoga. I feel soooo great.

My mood boosted up about 1,000 times. I really just wanna smile and dance and sing.

I just remebered, "Dance like EVERYONE is watching." ~Sindy

I miss you Sindy! I love you, you made my life so great and you made me feel so amazing! I miss you!
Oh man. I miss Sindy TONS. gosh dangit Sindy, why do you have to be so wonderful?!?!?!

Yoga just reminded me of PiNK and Sindy and Cheer and Zumba. I love Zumba. oh fun fun days...

Anyway. I feel so great and I love this. I love it. I want to make everyone else feel great too. Hm.

Anyway, I know that my life isn't so great right now. A few of my friend's aren't being their nicest, but it's okay. Life will go on. But my Grandma is in the hospital, because they think she had a few mini strokes. But she's doing great. I'm so proud of my Grandma. I love her so much.

But how come I still feel great?

1. Yoga. Amazing. Try it. please. it's so worth it.
2. I remembered how great Sindy is. She's one of the most amazing women I know. I love her.
3. Home Alone 1 and 2, back to back. Oh yes.
4. I just need to smile. I love smiling. I just love feeling great. I LOVE IT!

I love love love the word love!

I love hot showers, family, Sindy, friends, my puppy, singing, television, my Molly Mormon shirt, and YOU. :)

I know, I'm being annoying and perky, but I seriously haven't felt this happy in a while.

Blog Challenge:

Day 19 – Another picture of yourself.

This is me and Shelby. I love her dearly too.
