You are a Rock Star, You Rock Hard!!!

Seattle. I haven't been back here in quite some time. 
I've decided I definitely couldn't live here, but visiting is quite splendid.
I'm just not a big city girl. I like bumping into people I know when I walk around town.
We got to hit up the touristy spots, visit the Folklife Festival, and visit my shopping palace:
Three story Forever21. Mwahaha.
Jessi was able to come to Nicole's Miss Outstanding Teen Pageant with us!
Such a blessing since it's the last time I'll see her before I leave for Malibu.
Nicole won!!! She is a rock star and she most definitely rocks hard! [Meryn's disney channel original song tryout]
A fabulous weekend. Now I'm just counting down the days until I leave for the 'Bu.

Adventures Galore!

 Nicole and Victoria's birthday party :)
Kamiakin's Campaigners :)
Hike with Mckenzi:
Ingredients of greatness.
Rain. Badger Mountain. Sweatshirts tied around our shoulders. Two rad chickadees.
What a beautiful hike. I've never hiked badger this early in the summer on a stormy day.
The mountain is way more colorful than I've ever seen it. So many greens and purples, and flowers everywhere!
Many laughs, and some decent exercise.
I love McKenzi Bullock :)

Lunchtime with Nicole:
We've had a couple lunch adventures, but none as crazy as this.
The wind today was outrageous.
Like blow us over crazy.
We couldn't stop laughing. 
Our goal was to take pictures, but it was one of the worst days to do that lol. Some turned out and it was an absolute blast so I would say mission accomplished :)
One word. Jelly. Baha.

J-Shrek and L-Dawg

I have the most incredible best friend.
She got to come home for the weekend and we got to spend some solid time together.
It's crazy how we won't see each other for months, but when we finally get to see each other it's as if no time has passed at all. I feel like that's the mark of a true best friend.
Nothing will ever get in between our friendship. Nothing can pull us apart. We've already defeated time and distance :)
We went down to the river with our guitars. Practiced. Attempted singing. Laughed. Watched a spectacular sunset. Bliss.
Watched one our new favorite movies. Life as We Know it.
Had the late night giggles. Like so bad haha. 
I'm blessed to have Jessi Strecker in my life. 
She's the ultimate best friend.

They were sitting...

...They were sitting
In the strawberry swing
Every moment was so precious.
I got the chance to help out at preschool last week and take pictures of the kiddos painting!
They are absolutely precious.
I had a blast and made many new friends :)
I house sat this weekend and took care of superdog Molly.
We became the best of friends.
We sat out in the front yard and watched the sunset one night.
I'm going to miss her.
Not the 6am walks though lol.
It's been so nice being on summer break.
I can relax and do the stuff I have been wanting to do all school year but couldn't because of studying and homework.  Jessi is coming home this weekend and I couldn't be more excited :)

I've been home since Friday. It's Sunday night. I'm still not completely unpacked.
And I've been working my butt off to unpack. Oh well.
I miss my buddies from school. Like a lot.
Just makes me more excited for the fall :)
Of course the first thing I had to do when I got home was go shopping.
Pullman's Walmart just didn't cut it for me.
Meryn Mamacat and I have started doing Turbo Fire.
It's been an absolute hoot and holler.
I look forward to it every day mwahaha.
I think I'm still exhausted from all the sleep I lost last semester.
Didn't help that I got an hour and a half of sleep Thursday night. 
Totally worth it though :)
Tomorrow I'm gonna hit up Espresso World, read my book, and write some letters. 
I can't wait.
Oh yeah. Tomorrow I'm getting a haircut.
Even though I'll just be getting a trim, I think it's gonna go something like this...

Controversial Celebration

"The only death that ever accomplished anything, that is ever worth celebrating, is Jesus. Osama was a dearly loved child of God that He would have rather him turn from his evil than perish in his evil. Not at all worth celebrating." - Melynda O'Brien

“I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
— Martin Luther King Jr.

A BS [Bible Study] Photo Shoot!!

I adore these girls.
It's been an amazing semester getting to know them and grow with them in the Lord.
This summer they will definitely be missed.
Love you all!!!!
