Once upon a time...

Hello, darlins!

Today, I shall talk about a new story habit.

Serena has started yet another story, and it's coming along really well! And she keeps telling me that I should write a story for her to read.

So maybe I will!

I've been thinking all day about it, and I finally decided that I, not being very creative, am going to steal Jane Austen's idea and write a modern day version of her book Emma. Emma is one of my favorite books in the whole wide world, and since it's based back in the eighteen hundreds, I shall update it and throw in my own style. Maybe I'll even change it a little bit... I'm not sure yet!

If you've never read Emma, I reallllly think you should. Sure, they talk kind of funny and everyone's all fancy and proper, but that's one of the best parts about it! The story's basically about a rich, young lady named Emma (obviously) who tries to be a matchmaker for her best friend, Harriet. I don't wanna spoil the book, so you'll just have to read it!! And if you're not a reader, the movie's not bad either :)

BUT, I WILL be working on it! I promise!! And I'll post bits and pieces here and there, just for you.

And you, Serena ;)

Life Lesson of the Day
Loyalty and promises are some of the best things you can have in a friendship. Don't ruin it.

Well, I need my beauty sleep!

Etiquette Dance


It's me again!

Yes, I know it's not Thursday yet, but Serena's blog inspired me to post about the amazing night of the etiquette.


So I started out at home, doing my hair and makeup, which went a little overkill, thanks to my mother (love ya, momma!), but I fixed it at the dance a little bit, so it turned out ok! Then, when I arrived, about half of my friends were there, so we said hi and talked and laughed and stuff, then we took some pictures, which turned out really pretty!

Everyone looked realllllly nice. And spiffy. ;)

Then they let us in, and the WHOLE gym was decorated Broadway style. It was actually kind of cool! Then we all sat down at our assigned tables, and we all had pretty little name cards and menus. So we ate (steak, corn, salad, potatos, bread) and talked, and I was soooo glad that Mindy, Delilah, and Ivy were at my table, because there were some freaky guys there too.

Then they called us up to start dancing. I had pretty good dance partners, and the only partner that I wanted to dance with was Travis, who's really funny, cute and an AMAZING slow dancer. Too bad he likes Riley. Oh, well. Life goes on.

Now for the BEST part.


Sure, it wasn't the slow dance, or the waltz, or even the two-step. It was the dorky swing. But whatever! It was still a dance!

He's pretty cute, with brown-blonde hair, brown eyes, and he's really tall, and funny.

And it was so lovely. We had just finished dinner, and the lights were all dim, and they called us out the the dance floor. I stood around with some friends, waiting for someone to ask me, then I heard my name...
"Tiffany?" I turned around. "Would you like to dance?" He had a sheepish smile, which made me smile. "Yes, thank you for asking" I replied, linking arms with him. Then we stood next to Mindy and Hunter, and danced right next to them. But they're really short compared to us, so we towered over them. :)

And now I like him again. Yeah, AGAIN.


I've been liking him on and off this WHOLE YEAR! Lacey and I were text-talking about it the other day, and she reminded me that he is really good friends with Mindy... so maybe I still have a chance. It wouldn't really matter, though, I guess. We're going to different schools next year, so I only have 5 more weeks of seeing him :( And his rock hard abs.

Oh well. I've been saying that a lot recently, huh? Oh well? Haha.

But the dance was really fun overall, and I liked it a lot. Thanks for listening to me complain :)

Life Lesson of the Day

Commit to some things in life, and let others flow freely. There's nothing more reassuring and refreshing than to be commited to something 100%

Talk to ya Thursday!

So much to say, so little time

Hello :)

I have SO much to talk about!
First, sorry its been so long :( Busy busy busy. But, like I said, I have a LOT to talk about, and I'll start off with April Fools Day....

Ok, so this wasn't my best year, but I DID take all my stuffed animals in my closet in the middle of the night and buckled them all up in my mom's car. Then, when she had to go to work that morning, she barely had any room for herself :) Heehee.

Then Easter came, church, Grandma's house, pretty dress, you get the picture. :) I loveee Easter!

Then... school... blah blah blah... friends... blah blah blah... you get THAT picture too!

Aww. I forgot where I was going with this. Oh, well. Now I'll move on to the present!

Tomorrow, at my school, we have a mandatory etiquette dance. It's like this dance that all of the 8th graders have to go to. For six weeks, instead of doing regular sports stuff in PE, we have to learn dances. Yes, dances. Dances like the waltz, swing, two-step, slow dance and various turns and stuff with them. What happens is all the guys in my PE class have to gather around in a circle, and the girls have to stand in front of one, and then my PE teacher says "Girls, move four to your right." So we'll move to the right, and the guy we match up with is our dance partner. Then we have to do the dance of my PE teachers choice, and thats pretty much it. And at the dance, we have to do table manners and eat "properly" and junk. My friends are going to FAIL that section. They cannot go one lunch period without pouring someone's drink into another person's food :) I love you guys!
Anyways, I'm kind of excited for it, ya know? All the girls have to get dressed up, and the guys are forced to look cleaned up, and it's going to be nice! Plus, I just got a pedicure. And I love love LOVE my dress! I'll try to post a picture :)

There! Did that work?
Don't you love it??

I do :)

I also liked these ones...

There was also a pretty pink one, but I couldn't find a picture of that one. Oh, and all of these are credited to Macys, and I am not any of the beautiful models in these pics! Copyrighted! :)
Well, I gotta go now. But I gotta include my Life Lesson of the Week!
