homecoming dress shopping

My best friend, Amy, and I went shopping for homecoming dresses! I found one that I love!

Now all I need to do is find a shrug (to make it modest, duh!)!

my darling little Lou

On a warm September morning in the late stages of summer, my darling little Lou comes to me with her snow-suit, and asks me to help her squeeze herself into it. Of coarse I couldn't say no to little Lou!!!

school is coming...

and im not ready.
i dont have supplies yet. i guess we dont get our lists until the first day but i think we should go and get the things that i know ill need. stuff like a binder or pens or paper. right??
but mom just says we'll wait and rush with everyone else on the first day.

i also dont think i could ever get enough of summer.
School means waking up early, not having all the time in the world, and stress.

For my auntie Val

when i had gotten my turtles, a while ago, the lady at the counter said they were social animals. so when Donatelo died today i was afraid that Leonardo would die too from being lonely. My friend Paige got two turtles for her birthday and one of them died, and when the first one died the second got to lonely and died also. So i think that if i get a fish to swim around with Leonardo until I get a new turtle, then maybe he wont be to lonely.

Grace and I had a funeral for Donatelo(summer days often get too boring for us).

Yesterday, my mom, monster, luke skywalker, loulou, and i went to the mall. Now they have a little pet stand with rabbits, birds, crabs, and turtles. I got two turtles. I named them Scout and Jem from To Kill A Mockingbird at first, but i changed their names to Leonardo and Donatelo (after the ninja tutle!!!). I have to wash thier bowl everyday because it doesnt have a filtering system yet. I LOVE THEM!!!

Six Flags and The Last Day of School!

Today was the LAST DAY OF MIDDLE SCHOOL!!! YAAA!!!!!!
Me and Amy!

Yesterday, my entire grade at my school went to sixflags. Everyone passed ALL of our TAKS tests, so we were rewarded. "WOOT WOOT!" I was really fun. I stayed with a group of friends and we went on every ride there except for the ones in Loony Tunes Land (which is the little kid rides). I LOVE ROLLER COASTERS!!! My friend Amy is, by far, the best roller coaster partner! We went on Batman, Cliffhanger, Mr. Freeze, Flashback, Superman, Roaring Rapids, AuquaMan, Titan, Texas Giant, and Shockwave 3 times each!!! FUN FUN FUN!

More about me

Everyone thinks its sooo crazy, but... i LOVE Johnny Depp! I mean, who couldn't like a pirate, an insane writer, AND a lover off of a ghost story??? I have a big poster of Johnny as Captain Jack and a calender with every pose for the camera he has ever made hanging on my walls. Maybe a little obsessive. During summer I am having my sister Ariel do my hair! She's going to put purple in it and I'm planning on asking her to cut it too! I found a really cute cut in a magazine the other week and my mom approves of it. I would put a pic of it on here but i don't know how. Its really short with ALOT of layers. I'm kinda scared of how short it is because if i dont like it , it will take a long time to grow back. Oh well!! :)

I'm learning how to play the piano! I started 2 days ago and i can already play two handed songs!!! YA me! I like it, its not as boring as the violin and no one's pressuring me to keep a it and work harder. I guess if its not expected of me i like it more. Weird huh?

I like basketball. I like watching it and playing it. At school I'm on a basketball team. (well along with everyone else in athletics) we were divided into teams and we play against each other. And i guess you could say I'm not bad at it. ;)

I like running when I don't have to. I often take Millie out on runs. We go down to Amy's house (my bf) and then we talk to her for a while, then when mom sends sierra with the truck to come find us, we run home.

I like animals. especially the ones you don't see every day. I'm always wanting new kinds of pets from finches to snakes to monkeys. Of coarse my mom always says, "Jenna, (sigh), you have Millie." End of conversation.
I like cooking. Again, only when i dont have to. I'm a creative person and cooking can be really fun! One day i want to make a HUGE 5 layer cake with tons of decorations and I want to have a party so that everyone can eat it! I like parties too!

I'm ready for summer break. actually I've been ready since Xmas break. I can NOT wait to go to Disney world!!!! My friend Thomas from Youth Conference just got back from it. He said I cant even imagine how fun it is. But I think i have a clue. hello? I've been to Disney world, how many times???

I am friendly and shy and smiley. At the first dance I went to, I was dancing with this weird-o who asked me if i always smile (i guess i was smiling alot. what else are you supposed to do when some dude is towering over you and staring at your face?!!?).
That's me. At least for now!

my $ problems

OK. So maybe my brilliant essay plan didn't work, but i think i have found a substitute! You see, I have a amazing math teacher who has taught my more in the past 6 months than I've learned in 2 years. And for some strange reason we were talking about buying clothes and she said that last year she saved up her spare change for one year and by the time school came around again her son was asking for new clothes. So, she gave him her big jar of change and it ended up being 200 and something dollars!!! After that I started saving up some of my change and the few coins i found around the house, in the car, and in my closet. I started in February and soon forgot about it; until I was cleaning out my purse today. I had alot of change from my lunch money in there so I put it in my jar. The strange thing is, is that the jar was kinda heaving when I took it down. So today me and Lou-Lou counted everything and it ended up being 28$ and alot of pennies! Now I can either go and get 2 new shirts from my favorite new store, Rue 21, or I can keep saving up and see what happens! Of coarse I realize that change doesn't exactly add up quickly, but I think that in about another month I could have enough to buy a new outfit for DISNEY WORLD!!!!!!
There are only 6 weeks, including this one, left of school and man am i ready for summer vacation! actually I've been ready since the beginning of x-mas break.

to my advantage!

I've decided to use this blog post as a persuasive essay to my mother. You see for months now I have been begging, non-stop, her to give me an allowance. So if this doesn't work... then i don't know what will. (by the way this is mostly for my mom to read so if i add some thing that you don't really get its because there may be things that would usually only make sense to me and her)

P1 What would happen to you and your life if your source of money, lets call it your allowance, stopped coming to you? Would you be able to pay bills, buy grocery's, or ever hang out with your friends? Of coarse not! Without money your activities are limited. Of coarse I understand that I am only a teenager and that I do not necessarily need a credit card, a cell phone, or a pony but is a small allowance once a week really too much to ask for? I also know that with privileges such as an allowance come responsibilities (for which i believe I am fully qualified to handle).
P2 As with all privileges comes responsibilities. For example if you get a new pet you become responsible for taking care of that pet and keeping it alive, if you are asked to baby-sit you are responsible for those kids lives until the parents return, or in my case, if you receive a weekly allowance your responsibility would be to pay tithing, save another 10% in your saving and sparingly/wisely use the rest for your pleasure. As you can see I have already planned out the way I would use my allowance.
P3 Like I have already mentioned I have a plan to use an allowance to my best advantage. 10% would automatically go to tithing. Another 10% would be sent to a savings account for emergencies and my future plans (such as a car, college, etc.). Then whatever was left I would put to more leisurely things. You see, I had a LONG talk with Papa today and he explained to me the importance and guide lines to budgeting. Mom, I am sure you are pretty tired of refusing my pleads for money to go to the movies or to go out with my friends. I know I am.
P4 I always seem to be short on money. Whether it is to buy new clothes, buy birthday presents, movies with friends, football games, etc. I think that if you allow me this privilege I will learn alot. Papa has explained to my how important budgeting is and how i should practice while I'm young so that it doesn't come back and bite me in the butt when I'm older. Obviously I am pretty dang desperate (you know with me writing essays about it even when i hate, with a passion, essays) for this responsibility. By the way mom I LOVE YOU!!!!!!

over the past 3 days I have been at youth conference. This year we started off in the stake center eating dinner and preforming skits we had prepared. It all started good until the tornado hit. We vacated to the cinder block halls and waited it out there. A few people went outside and brought back hail the size of golf balls! The rest of the night went according to plan and we said goodbye until tomorrow at 7 am.
I was surprised the next morning at how hard it was to wake up at 6 on a Saturday! But unwillingly we ran out the door, wearing as many layers as possible, and picked up Emma. We went to the stake center and got onto buses with our new "family". Emma and I sat in the middle right in front of a group of THE most annoying boys ever! All the 2 hours that we were driving they talked and laughed and asked us for our numbers and sprayed cologne (that didn't even smell good). We finally got there and IT WAS FREEZING COLD!! i had on two shirts, a sweatshirt, and two jackets but i still felt like i was in an icebox. We built wagons and trekked across five miles of Fields of cacti, rocks, streams, pipes, and fallen trees. It was a little hard but not as bad as i had thought, but then again i only went five miles and the real pioneers went across hundreds of miles! There were mostly 4 things going through my head when i got there: It's cold, My nose is gonna get frostbite and fall off, stupid cactus, and i was not meant to be a pioneer. there was a reason i was born in this time period and I think it was because I would not have made a good pioneer. after our miles were done we went to a big field were we set up a bar-B-Q. At this youth conference there were more than 150 kids so we were a BIG group. for the rest of the night we ate, socialised, and square danced. That's right... square dance. In my group we didn't really know what to do so what ended up happening was we ( 8 of us) held hands, spun in circles, and jumped around. None the less, it was fun. we rode the buses back home and got back at about 10pm. The trek was a success.
Today was the last day of youth conference. After church we carpooled back to the stake center and had a testimony meeting. I was shocked at how many people bore their testimony! there were non-stop people going up and we ran out of time so some of us didn't get to go. :( But you could feel the spirit very strongly.
This was my first year of youth conference and i loved it! I made tons of friends and i can not wait until next year. All in all, this was one of those weekends you wont forget.

take me out to the ballgame....

We (my family minus stepper, Emma, and I) went to a Texas Rangers game! Something about screaming when you don't know what going on and and getting peanut shells spit on you from the the guy sitting behind you attracts my attention. I got to bring along my friend Emma. It was very fun! I even got a shirt that's big enough to wear as a dress! We had a blast and ended up getting home at around 11:30 pm. then of coarse i couldn't go to bed without taking a shower to get the remaining peanut shells off of me so i went to bed at around 1:00 am. I woke up this morning to the dang alarm clock, hit the snooze button about 8 times until mom came to wake up up with 10 mins before we head out the door; i stuffed random things in my bag and ran out the door.

If you look hard you can see me pointing to the baseball stadium! :)

my mom said that I'm not supposed to write the names of my family for security reasons...soooo i made up nick names. In my moms blog we are known as DH, D, G (D's hubby), S, J, H, E, and G. In my blog they will be called Obey-one (DH), mom, Ariel (D), Prince Eric (D's hubby), Star Stepper (S), me (J laughing to self), Monster (H), Skywalker (E), and Lou Lou (G). I think they suit us pretty well!
Well, there are 10 days till the TAKS tests. : (((( something i am not exactly looking forward to. So for the next 2 weeks it will be crunch time. Really the only tests I'm worried about are science and History. I've always been bad at science, and in history my excuse is that i have one of the MOST BORING teachers in history's history (and that's saying something)!!! this is our class schedule for 5th period history: walk in, sit down, Mrs. S lectures for 45 mins, bell rings, grab hw on way out. She talks everyday! NON-STOP! and you would think she might get sick or maybe even loose her voice, but no!!! so i guess what I'm saying here is that i have a scheduled nap during 5th period and the TAKS testing is going to mess that up.

Things that tick me off

1. cleaning the kitchen- its by far the longest to finish of all the jobs in the house. Everyone trys to avoid being the kitchen cleaner. And then when it is clean, you come back the next day and its dirty again.

2. frizzy hair days- there are some days where my hair is flat and straight and i love it, but then there are other days, such as today, where my hair is sooo frizzy i could loose things in it!

3. boys- enough said. they're just plain annoying.

4. packing peanuts- it gets everywhere!!!! you open a package, leave the box with the packing peanuts in it in the living room while u go and put the contents of the package into your room, you run back into living room remembering kids live with you, and you find packing peanuts ALL over the place! Then it takes forever to pick them up because you cant vacuum or sweep them or else they'll break in two.

5. alarm clocks- the make THE most annoying noise ever!!! it even bugs me when i hear the alarm clock noise on a commercial or a movie.

6. baby-sitting a non-napped Gracie-Lou- because the second mom even starts walking towards the door she starts screaming! then she gives you the sad face and says, "ah! mahm!!!"

7. shots- i can not stand them! i always get dizzy and my whole arm goes completely limp and i cant move it no matter how hard i try. is that normal?

8. the chlorine smell- in the summer we tend to swim alot. after the swimming fun i also get the fun of smelling like chlorine.

New Here

My name is Jenna, but everyone calls me jna-jo! I'm starting this blog because i got bored, i need to have a journal for personal progress, and because my mom loves it so i thought id give it a try. I'm not exactly the worlds best novel writer, in fact I'm not even the worlds best essay writer, but as long as you don't mind spelling mistakes and babbling on about nothing i will say I'm not boring.
Since this is my first post maybe i should tell you about myself from my point of view. I am a fun-loving, adventure seeking, laugh about everything kinda gal. I like swimming everyday at the crack of dawn, sleeping until i get into trouble, reading late into the night, dancing like no ones there, and laughing until i cry. My favorite color is teal and i like seafood. I talk, my teachers should know, and often don't even make sense to me! I love my mom! I can never be mad at her because i never have a reason to be! I love my family and my friends. I don't like to wake up for school (who does) and I absolutely HATE being grounded.

Because I can no longer think of anything else to say I'm going to end my post with, "GOOD NIGHT!"
