Off to Myrtle Beach...

I'm leaving for Myrtle Beach Friday morning at 3:00am (tomorrow). No blogging for a few days, which makes me sad...but I'll be back with pictures for my photography blog (so make sure to check it out!). Bye for now!

2 videos - check them out!

My friend Alex made them for me! I gave him the ideas for them and he made them (and did a great job!) They both show clips from the TV show Supernatural! Enjoy!

License to Wed

It was a cute movie. Not as funny as I thought it was going to be but definitely cute. Mandy Moore and John Krasinski had great chemistry in the movie which made it good.

Trip to the Zoo!

We went to the Zoo today for camp. It was pretty fun except that we didn't get to see the Lions (my favorite!) so I was a little mad about that. Other than that, it was a good day! Here's a picture of the Panda and the Elephant we saw.

All-Star Game!

The American League beat the National League last night 5-4. It was a pretty good game to watch! The NL even made it interesting in the bottom of the 9th inning having the bases loaded. AL got out of it though and kept their winning streak alive.

-Derek Jeter was 1-3
-Jose Reyes was 3-4
-Ichiro Suzuki went 3-3 with 2 RBI, an inside the park HR, and he won MVP
-Brian Roberts was 0-2 with a walk but he did score a run on Ichiro's HR!

Phillies help with tarp - unbelievable story!

Aww...that was such an amazing thing the Phillies did! The Colorado Rockies grounds crew went to put the tarp on the field, but the winds were too strong and took people under and the tarp went wild. The Phillies saw this and ran out onto the field in the rain to help. Such a great story. You can watch a video of it and read the rest of the story here.

Great book

Body Count by P.D Martin is a GREAT book. I just finished reading it and I loved it. It was so interesting and exciting, I never wanted to put it down! I wrote about it in my other post, where I wrote about the others book I have already read this summer. If you're interested in checking it out (and you should was great!), you can go here.

Fireworks - from my backyard

here's my attempt at taking pictures of the fireworks I could see from my backyard: (yeah don't laugh)


Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! I thought this movie was great! I didn't really know what to expect before seeing it. I like scifi and it looked pretty good. I had seen previews for it but they seemed kind of confusing. I'm so glad I saw it though! Shia LaBeouf was great! I thought he did a fantastic job! I also loved Josh Duhamel (of course...always do!). I also thought Megan Fox did a great job as well! I definitely recommend this movie!

Happy 4th of July!

Trying to forget (new poem I wrote)

There’s so much I want to say to you.
You broke my heart without even knowing it.
Now I’m trying to pick up the pieces,
But it’s hard having to move on,
Since the feelings I had won’t go away.
I tried and tried to get you out of my mind,
But nothing seems to be working,
Since everything reminds me of you.
I think of you all the time,
How you have that smile,
A smile that lights up my world,
And those eyes,
Eyes that shine right through me.
I’m trying to forget. I want to forget,
But I can’t.

Congrats to Derek and Brian!

Congrats to both Derek Jeter and Brian Roberts for making the All-Star team! Derek is starting at shortstop and Brian is a reserve for 2nd base! They both deserve it...congrats! :)

Nineteen Minutes

I just finished Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult. It's one of my new favorite books. I loved it. You can read more about it here.
