Updates galore

Hey everyone! So this blog hasn't really been a big priority lately... Sorry! Anywho last month I got hired at culvers! Turns out the guy I interview with is in the military...was homeschooled... And goes to school with my older sister! Who knew how perfect that was! I also got a smart phone...FINALLY! And I am probably getting braces in a few months...scary! AND I did something so different...people I am now a blonde. 
I think it looks so cute!!! Every time I go to the bathroom or something...I'm just in complete shock. Very big change...but a great one! Met a few girlfriends at caribou that I haven't seen in a month! It was a blast...except for a random guy coming up to me and asking " what's ur name"..."eve" "what grade are you in" "8th" do you live here "nope" awkward... And I completely lied...
I was so feeling in the spring/summer mode after last week being so nice! I bought shorts for only $5 each at Walmart! Evidently they were from last years stock...I don't care!
And we went to the mall later on in the week and I was spoiling myself for 2 for $5 flip flops at old navy!
Flappy much as I hate this game...I love it at the same time... I am so proud of myself from this score...I just have to show it off!
I hope you all have a fantastic week! I am currently in the coupon saving mode/ trim and healthy mode/ I want to rollerblade mode/ will spring ever come mode.

Sick really...oh boy

Hey everyone! Haven't been on blogger for a while! Well I'll give you an update on my life over here. I had a wonderful relaxing time in Arizona. Spent our days with my great grandma cooking, playing games, and swimming in her pool. She took us out to Cheesecake Factory and let me tell you know, watch out! That place is amazing, and boy do they give you a TON of food! Anywho we went to her church's candlelight service and went to a few places she used to work at. What a fun trip!
Besides our trip to Arizona I hung out with a few friends after New years and we ate what every girls craving is. Chocolate....and Pizza. What combination could ever be better. School came back up around a week later and my teachers really missed me....not. No I love my teachers, they just might not love me. My writing teacher actually came up to me and gave me a pair of blue snowman socks and some cookies for a late Christmas present. Such a sweetie. I got an iPod touch too, so I've been exchanging numbers with friends and texting away! Its my new toy and I probably spend too much time on it. :)
Well...need to say this Saturday afternoon my body decided to get sick...really sick. Went to the doctors and they tell me I have influenza (why is it I get the flue and I haven't even EVER had the flue shot?) and on top of that I get bronchitis?! So an inhaler is going to be my best friend for a while. Ugh...not fun. One of my sisters caught the flue from me and is now suffering while I'm recovering. Poor thing.
That's my life for now! This blog has kinda turned into random things here and there around my life. Oh well!

2013 Karate State Tournament

 Oh what a big day Saturday was! We headed over to Kennedy High school in Bloomington and my little sister and I competed in the karate state tournament. This one was a lot harder than last year, I was competing against 7 other students in each round and some were a higher belt than me. It was a blast, especially doing it with our good friends the Olson's.
 Practicing my hook kick for the next round.
 Oh yeah 1st place!
 Some more kicks...
 Won a 3rd for Escape Techniques.
 I won a first for my Kata and Kayli won a second for her best kicks.

Kayli doing her Kata.
After the event we took Kayli to her Junior high Christmas party. While she was there, the rest of us saw Catching fire at the movie theatre and went shopping at the dollar store afterwards. It was a good day.
I placed the following:
Escapes- 3rd Place
Best Kicks- 1st Place
Kata- 1st Place
Spar- 3rd Place

Going to make ginger bread houses with friends tonight, also having my speech teacher come and coach me at our house. Today is going to be a good day.

 Golly! Scary.....
Yup... if you know me personally...that's me alright.

Operation Christmas Child

 At church on Sunday we did Operation Christmas Child. It was so much fun and we packed 461 boxes!!! We did amazing! Also we took pictures and donated money for those gifts to be shipped overseas to kids all over the world. It was a great experience that I will never forget.

Overall update: Hunger Games: Catching Fire movie this weekend with friends, saw Thor 2 with my family, and going to an Handel's Messiah concert this weekend. Going to my Cousins for a Thanksgiving dessert, and enjoying my week off of school! Happy Thanksgiving!

Hangout with Olivia

 I love this girl! We take multiple classes and we go to church and youth group together. It's a joy to be around her and I love our friendship! Love you Olivia! We hung out after our speech class today and took a whole bunch of fall pictures with her new camera. The pic above was taken on Friday, we went to our friend Rachel's sweet sixteen b-day party. It was so much fun getting all dressed up!

Trout Lake Fall Retreat/the night I got saved

This weekend I went to Trout Lake camp with my youth group. It was Amazing! It's one of those experiences that you'll never forget. These girls are amazing and I love them all.
We had ping pong battles and floor hockey battles. It was so much fun! I'm the one in the bright green sweatshirt on the right.
One of my best friends. Such a sweetie!
Yup, I got stuck under the car. A 15 passenger van is a tight squeeze.
Saturday night was a biggie for me. I have been raised in the church growing up and never really made a personal decision in my life on whether I would want to follow Christ or not. I hadn't made good decisions in the past and with medical issues going on at home I chose not to follow Jesus. But over the past few months I was pondering about Christ. My youth pastor was talking about a difference between Anger and Righteous anger. It made me realize that I can't continue my life like that. I was forgiving others, but not myself. My heart melted at the Chapel service at trout lake camp and I felt completely overwhelmed. I just on the spot cried in front of my whole youth group and the leaders and told them that my road has been really rough and I felt like the holy spirit was drawing me towards God. Every single person in that room started to cry, even all the guys. They prayed with me and talked to me and told me how much they loved me. And that night I got saved. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget.
