Lots O Stuff

So, my parents are in Italy right now! Isn't that amazing?! I'm gonna be honest, I'm insanely jealous about it. Italy is one of my dream vacations! David asked me the other day if we could go to Mexico or Hawaii what would I choose? I said Italy. But I hope they have an amazing time--truly!

Bethany got her report card today, and guess what?! She's a genious!!
Well, maybe not a genious but she's improving and that gets a thumbs up in my book! The only thing she really needs to work on is her writing. So we'll work on it!
Bethany's birthday is in just a couple weeks and we're planning an actual honest-to-goodness party! The poor kid hasn't had a "real" party with friends and party bags and whatever since she was BORN. So we're having a "real" party, pray for me. :)

And I've been published!!



Okay, yeah right. I have NOT been published in this* book, although I did send in a story to be in the book. But it wasn't picked. But I still want to buy it because I know it will be HILLARIOUS! Because if they didn't pick my awesome hysterical story, then the stories in there must be wet-your-pants good! If you have no idea what I'm talking about go here. Go buy it too, we can be book buddies!

And thats it for now...



NO I HAVEN'T DOWNLOADED THE PICTURES YET, LAY OFF! :)

*I HAVE been published in a photography book, or so they tell me. I wouldn't pay the $80 to actually own it myself. I'm also pretty sure they tell everyone who submits a photo that they're in the book. So there.

5 awesomeness!...and attractiveness!:

Just in case you didn't get it hilarious only has one l. Okay I'm bored and I'm done now.

Does having a blog count as being published? I wasn't picked either.

Melinda said...

You're right. I have a problem. I JUST. CAN'T. STOP. LYING.
DANG IT! Really?! I've been spelling hilarious wrong?! Now I feel like an idiot. :( boo hoo.
Kristina, you didn't get picked?! But you really are hilLarious (I don't care Kristie!), I'm shocked! I am excited for the book. Just wish I was funnier/more cleverish. :)
