Ok, so this was a day to blog about!

Yesterday was my little brothers 8th birthday. We went bowling yesterday with the family, but had his party today. I have been none stop all day today and yesterday. I can't give away much at this point because my mom might be reading this. :) So this morning we went out and got stuff for my mom for mothers day. I'm also doing something very special for her as well. :) After that, while my brother was at his baseball game, I made his surprise pizza cake... yes, i said PIZZA cake! :) He loves pizza, its his favorite food. He said he wanted baseball cupcakes for his birthday, so he was under the impression that he was getting baseball cupcakes this whole week, up until he blew out the candles. :) He was surprised, he was like "it looks like a pizza!" :) he's so cute!

So I wanted to do something special and creative for him. It took awhile to think of a good one. Then i got it... his favorite food! Pizza! :) So i looked up pizza cake recipes, and found this amazingly simple recipe. It was impressive, and it looked like pizza.  All I did for the cake, was boxed golden yellow cake.Made buttercream frosting and added some red food coloring to make it look like pizza sauce. Grated up some blocks of white chocolate for the cheese. Then cut out little circles, about the same size of a real pepperoni, made from red fruit roll-ups and placed them on the pizza as the finishing touch. I also made pizza cupcakes.

Ok, so in the middle of writing this blog, we decided, because we are going out of town to celebrate mothers day with family, that we would give my mom her gifts early. We got her a family photo album and put some pics of us and her and everyone in it. A beautiful plaque thing that we got at khols. Its a picture of a tire swing with the sunset in the background. It says.... 'Children hold your hands for awhile but your hearts forever.'
Then we got her something that she really wanted, a plant hanger, to hang a plant on, so we got her a plant to hang on it. Still just got one more thing in store for her, that she doesn't truely know about. It will have to wait until we get home tomorrow night. :)

Well this has been a very tiring day, especially cause I was up until about 2:30am early this morning. :) Then got up at 7am. Yeah its been a very busy, stressful, tiring day. But at the end of the day, you know it was worth it. I will be up late again tonight working on my project. But its totally worth it. I love my mom and every woman that has ever been a mother figure to me.You guys are sooo wonderful and special to me. I wish a happy Mother's day to everyone!

Update on job

Okay, so I'm pretty bummed right now. I went to check on my app at Gigi's, and they said that they already hired someone. :( But I will not give up. God, obviously didn't want me to have that job at this time. But I am still hoping for a job. Please pray that I hear something soon. Thanks.

Okay... you can hate me or stop following my blog..... but here's an update! :)

Okay... you can hate me or stop following my blog. But i really am sorry, I haven't had much time to right, and i know I left you hanging. So I will continue what i was saying. :) Okay, the last thing i said was that i took my permit test, and yes, you guessed it.... I passed!! :) I have been driving ever since. I really want to get my hours in, so i can get my license. So i can actually go out by myself, or take my sister and friends out. :) okay... so on to something else. Well I just went to an AmAzInG concert a couple nights ago. It was Winter Jam 2011, with Building 429, 33Miles, Kerrie Roberts and Jason Gray!! It was a total blast! I even caught a Building 429 t-shirt that they through out. But we had to leave immediately after, so i couldn't get them to sign my shirt. :( But they are going to be just down the road here in bowling green, in April. It for a block party, for a grand opening of a campus at a church. The best part about it, is that it's totally FREE!!!! I can't wait, maybe i can get them to sign my shirt then. :) They rock!! Jason, the lead singer of Building 429 is a great guy, with a huge heart.
       Okay, just a update on trying to find a job, if anyone was wondering. I am still waiting... I have put in a ton of applications at a ton of different places. I put one in at a place called Gigi's Cupcakes. It's a cupcake bakery, something i hope to have one of my own, someday. I have checked on it twice, and they said they were going to hiring someone like this beginning of Jan. So I went in and checked on it, in the beginning of this month. The employee just said that they were going to hire someone very soon, and that the manager should call me, to let me know something soon. But like I predicted, no call... and it's already in the middle of the month. :(  That was something I was asking God to let me have. But oh well.. i guess it wasn't in God's plan for me right now. But it is kinda hard for me to get a job right now, cause first of all, I haven't had hardly any work experience, I am seeking my first job. Also, because I'm, only 16, and they dont like to work with my school schedule. I'm homeschooled, so it would be easier, but they dont know that. Well Gigi's does, cause I also wrote them a short paragraph,saying that I was homeschooled,  along with the application.  Well I need to check on Starbuck's again like today, cause they said to come check back with them, in the middle of the month. But I dont think they would consider me, cause all they're employees are college students. Well I will keep trying, and if I hear anything, I will let ya'll know.

     I had a fun time last night with some friends, It was Nik's birthday. We went bowling with a bunch of friends. It was fun! Then went to Jasmine's and watched a movie. Happy Birthday Nikki!!
     Well that about it, I hope thats enough of a update! :)
