I hope you all are enjoying the first sights and sounds of Spring which seem to be popping up all around us these past few weeks. There are flowers blooming in neat little rows around our houses, warm breezes rustling our perfectly curled hair, and brightly colored shorts showing off our tanned legs. Girls are lined up in the backyard of every house attempting to get a decent tan before summer hits and boys can be seen speckled across parks everywhere as they toss around their favorite sports balls.
As soon as spring break started, I replaced my spicy sandalwood scented perfumes with floral citrus ones, tossed all my boots into a donation box and replaced their empty shelves with colorful embellished sandals, and pulled out all of my favorite floral tops, dresses, and accessories. Nothing makes you feel more refreshed than an updated wardrobe (:
The Pretty Committee started off spring break with our Fast Forward to Summer party with the most ahdorable nautical theme. The entire pool was decked out in anchors, stripes, and splashes of red and the girls and I spent most of the day decorating, styling, and pre-party dancing. By the time everyone arrived, we were practically on cloud nine. With everyone splashing around in the cutest swimsuits, eating the most delish anchor decorated cupcakes, and hundreds of chirpy voices filling the pool room’s usual soggy air, I could practically feel summer around me.
Now, I’m sure plenty of you are curious about the prank I mentioned in my last post, and I have to say it went off swimmingly (; The cheer girls had obviously heard about my party and assumed they would be getting a gorgeously printed red, white, and blue invitation in the mail any day. As the days ticked by I could see the worry in their faces as they wondered why they weren’t invited. Finally on Friday, the last day of school before break, they confronted me in the cafeteria, obviously upset. I simply asked, “Wouldn’t it be awkward? Since you obviously heart our crushes, I thought it would just be cruel to invite you to a party where we would be as couples.”
Of course, they instantly denied anything of the sort but after a bit of convincing, they spilled everything. After a long heart to heart, lots of tears, and a promise to forgive and forget, they asked if they were allowed to come to the party. The Pretty Committee and I just chuckled and told them no. “We may have forgiven you but that still doesn’t mean we trust you. You’ll just have to think of a way to earn that back,” I said as I dismissed them from our table.
While our “prank” didn’t include humiliation or a big blow-out fight, it did solve our problems. After all, silence is the most powerful scream.
Alright girlies, I’m going to be fairly honest with you. I am quickly loosing time to blog. As you can tell, I haven’t posted in forever and I haven’t commented around in ages. Apparently my teachers have chosen April to be the month from hell. I have been swamped with homework, extracurriculars, and social obligations. I am very sorry for being gone so much and not giving your posts the recognition they deserve. I’m not sure when I will post again but I promise once I gain some of my free time back, I’ll make it up to you guys (:
I want you to welcome my new Dylan! She is absolutely fabulous so go check her out!
My shout-out list is going to be super long but I have to say thank you to the ahamazing girls who still keep up with me instead of writing me off because I haven’t had time to return the favor. Thank you for commenting because you enjoy WordPress, not because you only care about views&comments. It’s girls like you who keep WordPress going, and make me want to stay 🙂
