Random Picture Post

I've got a lot of random pictures for this post! A lot of them are pictures that I got off of some of my friends' Facebooks because they were just too cute for me to not post them! So thanks to all of my friends for the awesome pictures for this post!

A friend of mine who I hadn't seen in a LONG time had her Sweet 16 party that I went to last weekend. It was great to see her since it had been a few years!

Now I have some other pictures from DC that I didn't take with my camera.....

I also had to make a cute little scrapbooking page with some DC pictures......
And my Mom picked up a bottle of nail polish today that I have been searching for everywhere. I am pretty much obsessed with it. It's OPI's Chocolate Shakespeare:
I painted my nails tonight, and I was planning on taking a picture of them all done, but I'm just too lazy now ;)

This was quite possibly the most random post ever - ha! Oh well, Happy Friday!

March for Life

I have been missing in action the last couple of days because I was in Washington DC for the March for Life! I went through school, and 2 of my friends went on the trip too. It was a ton of fun, and I've got a lot of blogging to do about it ;) I was just in DC about 6 months ago, so I didn't take a ton of pictures, so you can see more DC pictures here from July.

We left on Saturday night and drove through the night. I slept terrible. The temperatures were all out of whack. It was really hot to begin with, and then it was unbelievably cold. Once we got the temperature under control I was able to sleep, but by then I only got 2 hours of decent sleep.

When we got to DC, we went straight to the Basilica for mass.

The Washington Monument:

Then we headed to the Holocaust Museum. I really enjoyed that, and I wish we would have had more time in there. Somehow my friends and I missed the main exhibit, but everything else we saw was really neat. The only bad thing was that we had to wait about 45 minutes to get in there, and we couldn't take pictures of anything in the museum!

After the Holocaust Museum, we went on a little tour of the monuments. I was so frozen I hardly took any pictures :/

We went to Union Station for dinner, it was great! We decided to eat at Uno's and it was the best meal I had the entire trip. It was funny because the 3 of us each got our own pizza, so we had an excessive amount of pizza left over. :)

Then it was time to head to the hotel and sleep, which I needed desperately.

In the morning we packed up and headed to the American History Museum.

I had gone to the museum in July, but we found an exhibit I didn't get to see last time that was really neat. We had a lot of fun taking pictures with the statues - ha!

Next was the actual march! I thought it was great how many people were there, and I think it was such a great cause.

It was time to head home after the march :/ Overall, the weekend was a lot of fun. The ride home was long, and my dinner wasn't too great - cinnamon rolls and a smoothie ;) And now I'm kind of obsessed with this stuff.....

Well, I'm not looking forward to facing my alarm clock tomorrow morning. I haven't been to school in almost a week!

Snowed In

Today school was called off, and we are snowed in! The snow just keeps coming down, and it doesn't look like it's going to stop anytime soon - I'm wondering if we are going to be called off school again tomorrow!

It's been a lazy day, aside from shoveling the driveway. Which I haven't done in a long time, and it was exhausting!

But since I don't have much to do today, I decided to break out the nice camera and take some pictures!

I love this one:

Lots of Pictures

This weekend was a well needed, fun weekend after a crazy week! I actually have a lot of pictures for this post too :)

On Friday, I finished up exams early and got to go out to lunch with my family! Then I headed to my old grade school with some friends to visit teachers. Friday night I went to my friend's house to hang out for a little bit. We ordered pizza and had a pencil fight. I love nights where I can forget about school and homework and just laugh and have a good time with some good friends!

On Saturday, I drove out to a cemetery so my parents could take some pictures. It was cold, but really pretty! I would love to go back in the summer and take some pictures again.

Saturday night I headed over to another friend's house. (I actually did something Friday AND Saturday, which is very rare for me!) It was a lot of fun, and the food was great. (M&M's and Chick-fil-A. Need I say more?)

Sunday was a fairly low key day. I went to church and then headed out to the mall to do some window shopping. I've had a specific color of OPI nail polish that I've been looking for, but I couldn't find it! So, instead I bought a new scarf. Like I needed another one, but hey, I love them!

Today was another good day. Today marks the official anniversary of the NJ&TA concert. It makes me sad to think that it was only 1 year ago today that I was singing and dancing at the concert.
I went to Chipotle for lunch with my mom, and then we went to see The Dilemma. It was a really cute and funny movie, and I would strongly suggest going to see it!
After dinner tonight, a friend of mine came over. We baked some brownies and thought up ideas on how to complete our 101 in 1001 goals. Speaking of which, I've been working on some of these and actually completed my first one today! 1 down 100 to go! But I have a link to my goals on my sidebar, and I will be updating that as I go along!

I'm really dreading waking up tomorrow at 6. I strong HATE reality :/
