I felt the need to blog. Not sure why. Probably because I have nothing else to do?
I have been busy doing absolutely nothing…. so I’m watching Nip/Tuck (what else did you expect?) and journaling and all of that business!
I’ll start with last night.
Cassie and I always have amazing adventures. We first went to the mall… and saw Miss Erin Sunday, hard at work :) After that, we went to Barnes and Noble so I could use up the rest of my gift card (birthday present courtesy of Grandmother Smith) and with that last 15 bucks, I bought this:

“The Wild Things” by Dave Eggers. Basically, as you can probably guess by the cover, is loosely based off of Where The Wild Things Are. and as I’ve read so far, it is very much like the movie. So… we’ll see. But at least the cover is cute right?? :)
Then….. we went to Olive Garden. HA! Seriously, it is my favoriteee restaurant ever. EVER. But… we had the most terrible service ever. Cassie and I felt so completely… humiliated by our waiter, and his little waiter friends. We wanted to leave so, so bad. It was so bad. I really don’t want to go back anytime soon. Cassie is famous for her complaint letters (she’s sent them to a restaurant in St. Charles, MO we went to once and Westboro Baptist Church), so she sent one to Olive Garden, of course. We then went to Target for some late night Starbucks… and shopping for things we definitely don’t need.
I went because I needed a backpack for school. She went because she wanted to buy the Eclipse soundtrack. We DID leave with the backpack… but not the soundtrack. We both, however, left with new denim leggings. DUDE. we bought JEGGINGS. hahaha! Seriously don’t know why I haven’t tried them before! They are sooo comfortable. It like wearing leggings… that look like jeans. Best feeling in the world. I need more. I just might start living in these things! They were only 12 bucks… so I couldn’t pass them up!

Sigh. In. Love. :)
Today I went to Silver Dollar City with Tyler, his mom, and niece,Brylee. It was a lot of fun. The ride home took about twice the time that it was supposed to, but I’m home now and the tears are alllll dried up. So we’re good. I got to see my journalism/Yearbook teacher this evening. It almost made me sad that I won’t be going back to school to be in yearbook again. almost.

Allllright. I’m a sleepy girl, and I’d like to finish two more episodes of Nip/Tuck before bed!
:)) I love you all muchly.

So yesterday was Marshfield’s 134th annual Fourth of July Parade.
Just a little fun fact: Marshfield (the town that I have lived in my entire life) currently holds the title of longest running & largest July 4th Parade west of the Mississippi.
So anyways, yesterday was the parade, and I spent the entirety of working for Christenberry’s Tea Room that is located right off of the square in Marshfield. Cassie currently works there (as their only employee) but she is leaving for college in St. Louis, and surprise surprise, I’m sticking around good old Marshfield for community college. :) So that means that her job at the tea room turns into MY job at the tea room :) So anytime you are in the Springfield area, be sure to stop by for some coffee (or tea, or frapps, or lattes, or iced coffees, or smoothies, or anything really..haha). :)
So we spent our morning/afternoon serving up tea, chicken caeser wraps, coffee, and, my favorite, cheesecake parfaits (cheesecake + fresh blueberries & strawberries. yumsss!). It was a fun and stress free way of making money, I loved it. I can’t wait to actually start working there :)

(cassie and i… hard at work of course. ;] )

after the parade, we have a fish fry everyyy year, momma told me a few days ago to make some red velvet cupcakes (they are my specialty), but i got so ridiculously busy these last few days, that she decided to make them herself. they turned out adorable :)

my mom is so crafty! obviously, that must be where i got it from :)

i have so much going on this week!
tonight, cass and i are going to Ozark for fireworks at a family-friend’s home. we went last year and of course, the experience was worth blogging about. holy cow it was fun, scary, and a big mess of emotions! i hope such mayhem ensues this year :)
tuesday (or so) cassie and i are going to downtown springfield to shop at some local stores, try out some different coffee shops since Rendezvous went bye-bye (didn’t like it that much anyways..) and *drumroll..* schedule my tattoo appointment! Tis true, I am getting one in the next few weeks :)
Friday night I am going to yet another springfield Cardinals game with my friend Daily.
And then sometime in the next week.. a special surprise is coming up :)
More on that one later ;)

have a happy happy fourth :)

it was an extremely long trip, or so it felt, and i’m glad to be back.
tyler and i first went to arkansas for a few days, and then to kansas (most random places on earth, yes).
i had so much fun, and i got to meet his family. i was soooo incredibly nervous, but it all turned out great. i reallyyy like them. a lot. and it was fun getting to see “uncle tyler” play with his favorite kiddos. i love him a lot. :)
tyler and i also have plans to go to silver dollar city AND st. louis sometime this week, we just don’t know when, exactly. haha
anyways… i am back, and wayy in the mood for art journaling and painting, both of which i have not done in forever. i’m going through major withdrawals.
i’ve got some suuuuper late presents to mail out this week, hopefully i’ll get this done before wednesday. hopefully. i feel absolutely terrible and ultra guilty. ha.
anyways… i love you all!
xo. hay

p.s. i found these pictures this morning. two years ago, my friend alyssa and i went to see Wicked in St. Louis for Christmas. i just wanted to share :)

More from homecoming!
It was my last homecoming… so I decided that I should participate in e v e r y spirit day, during homecoming week.
Here are some pictures:
Tuesday – Costume day:

i took it upon myself to wear a blue feather in my hair alllll day for bleed blue day :] hahah

I don’t have pictures from the other two days :(
But Monday was plaid/argyle day
and Thursday was Jinx Day… which is my absolute FAVORITE day. The idea of the day is that you dress up like the opposing team’s mascot. For homecoming this year, we played the Branson Pirates (whoever’s idea THAT was… they are seriously screwed up in the head. We lost, 42-3 HOW LAME). Anyways, so for that day, we dressed as pirates! It was so much fun! I can try and see if anyone has a picture of me in my “pirate” outfit. Adorable, adorable.
I love my school so much. I’m gonna be sad when I graduate :(
Speaking of graduating…
Tomorrow is our Senior Panoramic Picture. The entire senior class gets together and takes a big huge picture in the gym. After that, we have a meeting to vote on class color/song/flower/etc. I’m so depressed just thinking about it!
And then Thursday, we have another meeting to decided on grad announcement designs, and to get info on ordering caps and gowns.
Ugh. Comfort me. I feel like I’m gonna cry.

Ttyl loves, its Grandma night for the second night in a row!

Cass & Hay
Yep. 18. I feel old. I’m sure, as the birthdays progress it’ll only get worse, and by the time I’m 21, I’ll think I’m old enough to be everyone’s mother. But, 18. I shouldn’t be this old! I’m sure my mom agrees :]
I’m not sure what today’s plans involve, but I’m sure it’ll be a good day. Hopefully, at least. Haha. My beautiful Cassie turned 17 Monday. Happy birthday, love <3. For her birthday, we (Cass, Colby, Alyssa, and I) roadtripped to St. Louis to go to the STL City Museum, some shopping, and a nice dinner. WELL. It didn’t go exactly as planned. At all. I’m not going to tell all the tragic details, but you can read about them either at Cassie’s or Colby’s blogs. Enjoy reading about our travels. :]
Here are some more pictures:

It really was a good day, I enjoyed it very much. Despite everything else that happened. It was a good day<3

Hmm.. What else…
Cassie & I had our 2nd (annual..?) Heath Ledger Remembrance Day. We have a deep, passionate love for Heath… and we're utterly depressed that he had to go and die last year. So. Last summer, we decided to "celebrate" him by watching some of his movies. Last year, we watched his most popular films, 10 Things I Hate About You, and A Knight's Tale, and one of the lesser known ones, Candy. It was suuuch a fun day! Well, this year, we did it again… but we watched Ned Kelly (or tried to, at least), and Monster's Ball. Ok, little did we know, he's BARELY in Monster's Ball, and even after he's not in it anymore, the movie is freaking weird and very, very boring. Ugh. Waste of liiiiife.
Oh well. Now we can say we've seen two more Heath movies, I guess.
Maybe in a few years, we can say we've seen them all :]

I'm still doing Viv’s class, but I’m dreadfully behind on some pages. :/ It also ends Friday. Which is sad, because I’m having a TON of fun doing. But oh well. I’ll keep going in my journal :]

I finally got a chance to watch Watchmen, last night.
It was alright; I probably need to watch it one more time before I can say that I liked it.
I also get the feeling I need to read the graphic novel, to understand it some more. But… I at least enjoyed what I did understand of it. a.n.d. the sex scene was soooo unnecessary. Definitely. It was like 2 minutes long, and scary. Hahaha. Total truth in that statement.
I think Tucker would really like this movie… but, when we watch it, we’ll definitely have to skip over that part.

Ooh! I also saw Harry Potter & the Half Blood Prince! (Sorry Colby…)

…I’m really not sure what this girl’s name was, but she was my favorite character!
So anyways… for not seeing any of the Harry Potter movies past the second one, I think I did fairly well on understanding the movie. At times, I was a bit confused (wth is a death eater??) but I think I got it for the most part. Mom didn’t understand it at all, I’m afraid. So I think we’ll have to do a Harry Potter marathon someday. That would be fun :]

Ok. Well. It is my birthday, so I’m gonna do birthday things, like eat breakfast, and watch tv.

xo. Hay.
