Just, be my friend.

Do you see this bed?

How amazing? My cousin Morgan and I were in awe when we discovered it. I have no clue as to where it is located, but by gosh I will find it. If by any chance you know where it is, please please please tell me. Who needs a fancy headboard and bed when you could obviously cuddle with a giant hamburger?

These things will change

This song describes what's going on in my life right now to the t. Hope you love it just as much as I do, even though it's preeeetttyyyy old. Oh well.

Lovely Lyrics:
And it's a sad picture, the final blow hits you
Somebody else gets what you wanted again
You know it's all the same, another time and place
Repeating history and you're getting sick of it

But I believe in whatever you do
And I'll do anything to see it through

Because these things will change, can you feel it now?
These walls that they put up to hold us back will fall down
It's a revolution, the time will come for us to finally win

We'll sing hallelujah!
We'll sing hallelujah! Oh

So we've been outnumbered, raided and now cornered
It's hard to fight when the fight ain't fair
We're getting stronger now from things they never found
They might be bigger but we're faster and never scared

You can walk away and say we don't need this
But there's something in your eyes says we can beat this

'Cause these things will change, can you feel it now?
These walls that they put up to hold us back will fall down
It's a revolution, the time will come for us to finally win

We'll sing hallelujah!
We'll sing hallelujah!

Tonight we standed on our knees
To fight for what we worked for all these years
And the battle was long, it's the fight of our lives
Will we stand up champions tonight?

It was the night things changed, can you see it now?
These walls that they put up to hold us back fell down
It's a revolution, throw your hands up, 'cause we never gave in

We'll sing hallelujah!
We sang hallelujah!

&& on a side note, blogger is not letting anyone update pictures for 2 hours today, pictures right now. So sorry followers.

Let's get rich

and buy everybody nice sweaters and teach them how to dance.

This weekend was the craziest, but most exciting weekend in my entire life.
I left for Western Carolina University at 3am on Saturday morning after sleeping on the library floor. Slept all the way to Cullowhee were we stopped for breakfast at Bo"hangles"and I bought some lovely bo-biscuits. We arrived at the beautiful campus at 8:30, when it was 36 degrees outside. My phalanges felt like they were tiny grapes about to explode. Disgusting, yes. Painful? absolutely. After we performed, which wasn't our best performance might I add, we left to get pictures. Also we went to eat lunch in the cutest little town ever. On the way there Samantha and took a montage of photos. The food was alright, not worth the 15 dollars we were charged, but the memories were much worth it. We did not make finals at Western, but we did get 6th out of 13th. Pretty great if you ask me.

Embarrassment is my best friend

Today is Wednesday. This means church, I like church. At school today I wore a cute little brown dress, with hot pin undershirt and brown tights with gold flats. I planned to wear it to church tonight. Everything was peachy until 2nd period. I went to move to another desk in order to work with my partner. This is in Spanish III by the way. Anyway, I started walking when I realized that it was really tight at my ankles. Guess what had happened? My slip has FALLEN DOWN! How embarrassing? I quickly grabbed my slip and asked to go to the restroom to fix it. I think the tights that I had on were too slick for the slips liking. I took the tight off regretfully. My legs froze for the rest of the day, but I was not going to risk that happening again! I was going to post a picture, but am already changed into my pj's. Laziness is a bad bad character trait. Ha.

Until the next time bloggers,

World Of Jenks

Is the most amazing show I've ever witnessed. I want to marry this man. For serious, he has changed my perspective on TONS of things. For instance, this episode he is helping a girl named Brogan put a horse slaughter farm out of business. It is the saddest thing I have ever seen. But the fact that he puts his life out there to get the experience is amazing. If you have never seen the show before, it comes on MTV every Monday night at 10. Watch watch watch watch watch. That's all I can say.

Take That Mondays

Usually when I wake up on Monday mornings, I am in a horrid mood. Today however, was different. I woke up feeling some sort of impowerment. Like "hello life, meet your master."
I went to school today with that attitude and was shocked on how much easier it was to get through the day. Ah, I love this weather too. It seems to just be putting me in a lovely mood all of the time. Right now, I just lay here on my laptop, listening to this lovely artist. I like weird music like that. The sun is hidden away in the picture perfect clouds today. I don't mind though, it can't always be sunny you know. I love this time of year when you can just turn off the air, open up the windows, and just embrace the trueness of nature. I think this calls for a cup of tea. Thanks Kenzie Carson for introducing me to this phenomeonal drink.

Autumn Ameteur Photography

Anyone else think that this patch of moss looks like a moose, or is it just me?

As I was taking these pictures, I was ambushed by a wonderous woodpecker. I walked under the tree to see if I could find the little birdy, when a chunk of tree fell on my head. This ladies and gentlemen, is proof that curiosity killed the cat. And in this case, I am the cat. Oh the lengths that I go to in order to take photos.


1. Arizona Raspberry Iced Tea

2. NC sunsets like these..

3. The Fray

4. Grooveshark

5. Slipper Boots

6. Autumn weather

7. Marchig Band

8. Piano

9. Long car rides that lead to nowhere

10. Watching rain race across window panes.

Dressmaker II

Last night I was scavenging through my closet when I stumbled across something very precious. A sewing maching that has been hidden from sight for probably three years! I remember that my sister got it for me one year for Christmas hoping that I would take sewing classes with her. Sadly, I did not. I regret that so much, but have made up in my mind that I will start a new adventure by learning how to sew! My goal is to make a skirt, dress, and scarf ( and be able to wear them all) by the end of the year. I know, I know, everyone says that sewing is easy, but you must know that I am a bit challenged at picking up on how to do things. Hopefully I can get some help from my fellow sewers at church and school. If you have any tips for me, please let me know as I embark on this new journey!

At long last, we meet.

Today was a great day. The weather was to die for and I didn't even mind band practice today! On top of it all, I went shopping at Marshalls. After a year long hunt for a button down jean skirt, we finally met. It was only 10 dollars! Ah, I love discount stores. To add to the excitement, I also found a cute flannel button up shirt! They just so happened to fit together in perfect harmony, so I will probably wear it to school & church tomorrow. The weather isn't supposed to get higher than 70, which is ideal for my little outfit.

I apologize for my monsterous hand!

With this shopping trip, I also found an adorable sweater. It is suuuuuper warm, which I love, and has a rhinestoned guitar on it. How rad? I feel like a rebel in this outfit. My hair teazed perfectly to play the complete role of a "rocker chick" and I loved it.

My fashion world is expanding quickly, and I think I might even be developing my own style; finally. Hope you enjoyed this blog you lovely followers!

-Always, Kelsey.

Last night I accomplished something that I've been working very hard at for like, 3 years, and that task is french braiding! I created the masterpeice on my cousin Morgan's hair for church that night. I didn't get any picutres of it because my camera is dead and we have no AA Batteries. Fail. The next goal I have... Fishtail!

Wish me luck bloggers!

Can you feel the breezes of Fall beginning to stir?

My favorite season is Autumn, and it is approaching quickly.
Leaves are falling and so is the temperature, thank God.
Marching band makes you despise the hot weather of North Carolina.
I think I love Fall because it's warm enough to wear flip flops, but cold enough for hot cocoa.
Also I can wear corteroy ( sp? ) skirts such as the one pictured above.
I have had said skirt for about two years but am just now able to fit it.
Super exciting.
Oh and another plus of the weather change is Lattes.
Lattes are my absolute favorite things to drink during the chilly weather.
Well hope you all love Autumn as much as I do.
Friday night football games, the smell of bonfires, hay rides, roasting marshmellows, bundling up with buddies to keep warm, and Ugg boots; here I come!

Children Will Listen

That is the title of our Marching Band show this year. Colorguard has been such an experiance for me, through two weeks of intese training with Tracy, to going through two weeks of band camp, losing our instructors, losing 4 girls, gaining one, learning to trust my teammates, drama out each ear, and making memories that last a life time; stepping onto that field for Fall Preview made it seem like all of the above things had suddenly dissapeared. I love this sport so much and wouldn't trade any of my guard girls, or band friends for anything. Northwest Cabarrus High Marching Band 2010 !

You can't see the whole thing, but that is my uniform, it's oober cute.

Samantha just couldn't resist getting in the picture. "Proffessional creep, she is"

Bethany has yet to discover her true crazy face.

Katie after I tried to get a sneak attack picture of her. Drats, getting caught in the act is no fun!

Sometimes I just need someone to talk to

I thought this was a beautiful picture.
So anyways, fire ants are officially of the devil. Today while at band practice we were practicing in a feild filled with fire ant hills. Needless to say, I was molested by like 8 of them. I think my flag silk swept through a hill and the little punks fell all over me, just dying to feast on my blood. Ugh, they hurttttt. Today was a pretty swell day, minus the fact that I have homework in like 3 classes which I still have not started. Joy. On the plus side, my uniform for colorguard arrives on Friday just in time for preview and the football game! Wohoo! Good good & good.

Adios Amigos !

We're living in a mad world.

I just read that you can now eyelash extensions. How ridiculous? Gosh this world is just getting too crazy. I mean, I've never really realized how mad it is on this earth. I'm so glad I have my savior Jesus Christ to keep me sane.

Oh and by the way,

I am going to marry this man.

Copy Cat

I am copying this little survey from my dearest cousin Morgan!

Hair you would die for?

Clothes you would love to own?

The way you would like to spend most of your time?

Things you would like to have?

Person you would love to look like?

Your dream place to live?

Take a little piece of my heart now baby.

1. I like making lists, they are so much more convenient.
2. I ordered my class ring online tonight, yaaayyyy ( :
3. Tomorrow - Saturday I have guard practice until 6.
4. Oh and also church practice and services from 6-9.
5. Saturday the youth is going to the zoo, I probably will not be able to attend unless I catch Bogan in a wonderful mood Friday when I ask to leave early that day and not come the next. Ehhh.
6. I hate it when people bring eachother down.
7. Also not so fond of when people rag on your personal style. Hint hint, today at church.
8. However, I do love when people give you little life lessons such as, "When people tell you that you look ridiculous, they are just jealous. Don't give in to what they are telling you, that's all they want. They just wish they could look as cute as you." Things like that just make my heart smile.
9. I extremely dislike this headache action I'm feelin over here.
10. Oh and I am eating Jello like a champ right now. Orange and Cherry flavored might I add.

Goodnight Bloggers,

Life list number one.

1. "goal" is just a word for people who are too afraid to dream. - i just created that.
2. morgan says that i need to liven up my blog
3. i took a picture with this handsome modelquin at Old Navy friday.

4. school is no fun right now. there's homework every night for every class, welcome to junior year.
5. i have an english paper due tomorrow. i'm nervous about it.
6. i just dropped a chunk of lollypop on my bed.
7. i wish guard didn't get in the way of me trying out for the school play. sorry rass.
8. i know you are probably thinking "jeez, she has no life" if you are reading this. but let me inform you that if you are taking time to read it, then you too my friend, have no life.
9. my youth rally is friday - saturday. come come comeeee (:
10. i'm singing.
11. i wish i had a boyfriend like mitchell davis. hmmm, yum.
12. i have been informed that this year's musical is Moby Dick. I offered to be the whale. -Really? Moby Dick? what on EARTH were you guys thinkin when you picked that? oh well, i'll still do it.
13. speaking of Moby Dick, I called a girl a whale today. well not out loud, in my mind. she like shoved me twice on the stairs, and that could lead to potentially falling down said stairs, which equals utter embarrassment on my part. not cool, whale, not cool.
14. i really love whales though. so technically that girl recieved a compliment from me.
15. ah who am i kidding, that was mean. i couldn't apologize though, that would be pointless. like explaining why the apology was necessary would probably not get me very far before getting punched in the face.
16. oh lanta, i'm rambling again.
17. oh well.
18. tomorrow i am wearing a weird little outfit with a giant headband. it's kind of embarrassingly awesome, if that makes sense. i'll probably be really naive about myself all day tomorrow because of it, but i am willing to do it anyways.
19. kenzie and kelsi always tell me to just rock it out and not care what other people say, they are so right. i am going to keep that in mind tomorrow. it's my own style, why should i let other people boss me around about it?
20. alright, i think twenty comments are sufficient for tonight. thanks for reading.

just kelsey.

Oh happy day

I am just in a lovely mood. I have been for the past two days. I mean, sure the world is turning grey in some aspects, but who am I to let that bring me down? I am from now on living my life happily. I went to Northlake Mall today and purchased a cutsie little brown skirt. It's kind of odd though, so I don't have a shirt to wear with it yet, hence no picture of it. I tried a pink sweater with it, but mom and I agreed I looked like a grandmaw. No bueno, no bueno. Also, I think I want a camoflauge hat. My brother-in-law had one today and it sorta inspired me. And my amazing sister agreed to splitting the money with my aunts and get me the $198 cowboy boots that I want for Christmas. I know I know, it's extremely expensive, but so worth it. I could wear them with so much. That's probably why I'm so excited for December, for the boots. I don't think I'm leaving North Carolina anytime soon, so I might as well embrace my inner southern charm. Church is tomorrow, I'm super excited. Tomorrow afternoon we are having a church family picnik. If the weather is anything close to what is was today then it shall be perfect. I think it's about time to trade in my flippy flops for my Ugg boots. I just love fall weather. It's my favorite season you know. I mean, there's band, you can wear super comfy boots, the leaves are all pretty, and it's not super hot and icky outside, yet not freezing. Adios summer, see you in 2011. I think I'm going to go to some thrift stores and Goodwill soon. I suppose I could find just as much there as I could at some expensive mall.

Until tomorrow you lovely followers,

Seesters we are.

"Gosh we are too alike" -This is the famous quote repeated over and over again when I am with my two best friends, Kelsi Danae and Kenzie Faith Carson (: I love you guys to death, you have no idea. This idea sparked into my brain after receiving and reading you guys' wonderful birthday card to me. I almost cried because it made me so happy. I remember when we first met and was just reminiscing on how our friendship has grown. I just put together some pictures from over the years that I though you would enjoy looking at !

Apology for my dreadful looking hair, it had like 10 tons of hairspray. We were on the way back from our first Strong Tower togetherrr !
First out of many and many more to come, makeover/photo shoots.
Took this for me on her cruise, oh I love you too Kels (:

Our "sad faces"- taken by the lovely Dinah on the way to a youth conference...we got lost on the way home, go figure. Haha ( Kenzie and Trey fidgeting in the backround with a camera )
Oh we were young'ns. Also on the way to Youth Conference, but you know we had to eat some Chick-fil-a before getting our prasie on!
Hahahaha, enough said. Oh and notice the little girl at the bottom of the picture, we all found this hilarious.
Oh my gosh it's Hannah Montana ! Side note : Kelsi later purchased this wig, and still has it to this day (:
First picture of all of us together. Our teeth were pink from cupcakes!
Much more recent, Strong Tower this year. June 2010. Kelsi's tan is flawless.
About to go Ice Skating last year. Oh what an experiance that was!
Yeah, we thought we were beasting at the old school video game, it was actually on demo. FAIL.
I love you guys !
