To begin I have to say thank you, thank you, thank you to my amazing guest bloggers this past weekend! Each of y'all could not have chosen a better topic to write about and I loved reading your posts!

Allie Co: I love the fact that you talked about keeping resolutions and I smiled when I saw it was about workout clothes because I had that as a post I was going to do this week too!

Laura: Your post was exactly what every high school girl needs to hear! I will be printing that post out and hanging it up on my bulletin board as a reminder because all of it is so true!

Emily: I love that you did a post about things to know about the college application process because I know next year it will be my main stress source first semester! All of the dos and don'ts are things I NEEDED to hear and I am so glad that you gave my blog your insight!

This weekend was crazy busy. Friday night my school had its disco/eighties dance and I was very skeptical at first but when a couple of my friends and I got together and decided we didn't care how ridiculous we looked it really was a blast. When we danced I am sure we looked ridiculous especially because of our costumes but it really was a fun time. Here is a peek at what we wore:
eWm, bSh, and dWa

So the next morning it was time to wake up very early after going to bed very late and my soccer team had a day of fun at a camp nearby where we did team building activities and high ropes. The facilitators could not stop talking about how well we communicated and worked as a team and I hope that our encouragement for each other continues through out the upcoming season. We finished up at the camp at around four and I headed home to get showered. After I got cleaned up I went to an event to support my friend in a competition she was in and I thought she did wonderfully! I left the competition early and went back to be with the soccer team for indoor soccer and then we went to eWm's house to spend the night and eat. I ate so much food that night but we had a super fun time. Every girl on the team listed what her individual goal for the season was and her team goal which was a great way to get everyone hyped about the season to come! Then it was time to vote for two more captains to add to our one that we voted for at the beginning of the season. After that we announced our new tradition of having soccer big/little sisters. I was so excited to give my gifts ( I have two) and the girls loved them. I gave my littles matching pajama pants and a cosmetic bag, so that evening we all slept in our matching PJs which was super cute. And to make it better one of my littles is also my girls service club little sister and one of my very best friends, eWm! In all I had a terrific and exhausting weekend that was filled with tons of bonding and new experiences! This week is going to be a rough one so I apologize in advance if I am a bad blogger! 

I know it is mirror image and not very readable but that is A LOT of things to do including tests and due dates, YIKES! But fortunately this weekend I have no plans so I can relax and sleep then, coffee here I come!
