Summer Update

This summer has consisted of friends, San Francisco, swimming, and good food :)

It's all been pretty fun BUT I'm kinda excited to leave. I'm going to visit one of my aunts tomorrow. I'm flying, solo, but I have the best outfit ever for tomorrow!

P.S. My Mom is so mean. She made me try to fit all of my closet into one itsy-bitsy little carry on. I'll be gone for three weeks! And my cowboy boots don't fit into my suitcase either :P

Chopaniana and Fairies

This week I graduated from eighth grade and had non-stop parties and rehearsals.

Graduation was done on Thursday. Ceremony, dance, all that fun stuff.

The next day I was off to the theatre for dress rehearsal. For ballet, of course.

The theatre doesn't have air conditioning. All my costumes were longer and thicker than what I have been used to, so this wasn't all that great. (Later on, when I was performing, I noticed the audience fanning themselves with the programs. I was just like PLEASE STOP! Fyi, these  lights aren't on you...)

Mom got a few pictures on both performance days. Luckily, she didn't catch any with my shoe disfunction on Saturday! The ribbon on my pointe shoe had detached from the actual shoe half way through my solo. I had to go offstage for a part and tucked the ribbon into the arch of my shoe.

Mom got up early this morning to re-sew all the ribbons on my shoes so that it wouldn't happen today. My parents are the best. On that note, HAPPY FATHER'S DAY DADDY! :D

So here are a few photos. The blue costumes i was a fairy. The white one was my soloist dance with the rest of the class. It was a dance called Chopaniana:)

No Gap, No braces, New smile :)

Today I went to the orthodontist, which is on a list of things I used to hate because it reminded me that I had a ton of metal and rubber bands in my mouth. 

I had to fix my overbite and the big gap in my front two teeth. SO.

I got them taken off today. They put wires behind some of my teeth so they wouldn't begin to gap again and I left.

IT FEEL SO WIERD! I look in the mirror and its so...different. But I like this different:)

So here's a picture, because I am not so sure that I could blog about this without actually showing you.

(Sorry for the before-bed clothes and hair! And the mac charger in the background...whoops!)

My amazing boots that I fell in love with two weeks ago are backordered. UGH.

I got my first package from Delias yesterday, just one pair of shorts out of the three I bought. I also got a shirt with feathers on it, but that didn't come either.

Delias decided that all my items HAVE to ship separately. They don't have any other shipping choice than standard and I ordered all my stuff two weeks ago. Who knows when my boot will come?  I mean, I graduate next week.

They have seven days to pull themselves together. They have a very angry teenage customer.

Nikela? Nope, Just Her Little Sister.

This year at Nikela's track meets and band events I have been mistaken for her.

Today, at the Memorial Day parade Nikela was marching in, one of the moms came up to me and said, "Sweetie how'd you get out of your uniform so fast? And where is your clarinet?!" I looked at her, confused, through my sunglasses and it didn't take her very long to realize her mistake. "Oh! I'm sorry! I thought you were Nikela! My, you look so much alike!"

I have to disagree. I love my older, taller, blonder sister but we do NOT look that much alike. I know that I have supposedly changed a little it in the past year, but we are still very much different and we have talked about how we are different in our appearances too.

                This picture was taken in November when we were visiting family up in Chico. MAYBE this makes s look more alike than we really do, but my nose is a little bigger and same with my forehead. My face is also more square, too. I have way darker hair, too. Shall I go on?

Graduation Outfit

Okay, so I've been searching online for some items that I may possibly need for my trip to Indiana (basically a new summer wardrobe) and I found shoes to wear with my graduation dress, as well as a few other things... :D I'm sure you will remember this dress, every other picture of me is in it! So here are the boots:

Don't they match the belt? LOVE THEM! They'll make me stand out a little bit and show my country side:) 

I found them at delia's, but the closest store in a few hours away. So that means I could talk Mom into buying them and shipping them here, where I could try them on and decide:) What do you think?

Almost There....

 I tried out for the advanced dance for high school today. We were taught a latin combination and danced it a million times from 3:30-5:45. I don't know if I made it into advanced, intermediate, or neither, but I'm still hopeful. And nervous. There were 84 people  packed into the room so she split us up into multiple groups and it still took us fifteen minutes to get through everyone at least twice.

I can take this class as a freshman and I am super excited! (If i make it) And it serves as another reminder that I am almost a freshman. After I get through my horrible final exam for physics :P.

I will be graduating from the eighth grade at 10:30 on June 14th. 

A little late in the summer? Yes, I agree, but my friends back home graduated today.

You have no idea how jealous I am, for the fact that they are already out of school and that I didn't get to see it.

Anyway. This is starting to sound a bit choppy and unprofessional, but I'm going to keep writing anyway. I'm starting to feel sorry for my audience... :)

Almost summer. PLEASE come faster. I want to go visit my auntie and see all my friends:)

So I am wearing my favorite dress ever. Going to curl my hair, get my braces off on June 12th, and hopefully talk mom into letting me and a friend go get our nails done:) But I need to find shoes...so don't let me forget!

Summer is almost here...
