Just keep me in your prayers this week and that I may not take anything said to me to heart and that my friends will be there for me to guide me through. I know that what happens, happens for a reason. If it is not best for me to win then I believe that God will lead me away from that path. No matter the outcome, I will take with me a great experience in life and will have learned a great lesson. I now know that your friends are your friends for a reason they are there for you when ever you need them even if it puts them out of their way a little bit. However if I do win I will be ecstatic and will take the opportunity and lead the Class of 2011 to the best of my ability. I know that it would be a great opportunity to make a better outlook for class councils and to shine like a star and set an example by the way I act in a Godly Christian manner.
I will post pictures later of all my posters and campaign stuff as well at a picture of my and my 2 campaign staffers with our shirts on. :]

This past weekend, Silas and Jolee came and stayed with us for the weekend. It was an absolute joy to have them stay with us. Jolee is such a smart girl and adorable at that. She loved our puppies and was inseparable from them the whole time she was here. In fact, as we were leaving to go to church on Sunday we were pulling out of the driveway and Jolee said Bye Bye Puppies! She was so cute!

This past week has been super busy and crazy. Relay For Life was last night and Freshman Class council had a tent set up. So of course we had all the last minute stuff to do (which was pretty much everything) last week. :] I was about to pull my hair out last week but I will let you know that indeed all of my hair is still intact, at least last time I checked. lol So anyways back to my point. We had a really awesome time last night despite the craziness of it all. It was very inspirational and moving to see everybody from small town Apopka come out and support the Cure for Cancer. I must go back to cleaning before Brother Silas and Jolee get here. Oh yes they are coming down for the weekend to stay with us and Brother Silas is going to preach for us tomorrow. I think Daddy is the most excited about it because he gets to see his baby girl Jolee. :]
Mr. K getting pied.
Joe always havin fun even before getting pied in the face. ha.
Tori ready with enthusiasm to pie her brother, Joe, in the face. :]
I just love this one of Mrs. Sanders and Riley during the Silent Lap.
He was my favorite of the HeartBeat Boys!

"To a large degree, the measure of our peace of mind is determined by how much we are able to live in the present moment. Irrespective of what happend yesterday or last year, and what may or may not happen tomorrow, the present moment is where you are -always!" - Don't Sweat the Small Stuff
I have had a really hard time this week being content with the present. I was selfishly concentrating on the future and what it has to hold rather than soak up the day at hand. In doing so, I overlooked the blessings I have today -in the now! I had lost sight of my sweet Savior, supportive family, endearing friends and precious memories that encircle my life. After changing my thought process I emerged into a more satisfied state of mind. I stopped taking for granted the "on the go" lunches with my mother, movie night with Daddy, dinners with the family and late night chats with those I care about.
Take a brief moment today and pay attention to those things that you don't normally notice.

We had a great time on Friday night at the Ulmers! Every once in a while I will have a movie night and attempt to actually watch movies but that never happens we always wind up either playing a game or having a dance off.
Ms. M is the cutest thing. She wanted to see both mine and Britt's room. After going into Britt's room she quickly came out and asked me if I remembered when she watched Britt's fish. :] Then she went into my room and saw my necklaces and wanted all the girls to wear them and was pretty instant on that. I told her that they would wear them later and she said well Ok that is fine with me! Now that I have told you about the entertainment for the night. Let me tell you about what we had plans to do all along. Like I said earlier you would think that Oh a movie night what movie did you watch? OH no not at our movie nights, yes we have all intentions to watch movies when we start out but for some reason things never go that way.
Instead we went outside on the patio and played GameCube. After everybody went home well minus Tori, we just laid down and talked until about 2 in the morning and at that point we knew that we had to force ourselves to go to sleep because if not we wouldn't want to get up in the morning. Then we wouldn't have enough time to take pictures. Which boy oh boy did we get some cute ones, I uploaded them below so you will be able to see them.
Neither of us wanted to get a shower so we just decided to both wash our hair together. :] Notice the curious puppy looking over the side of the tub. That is the cutest part of the picture I think.
