8th Grade Recognition

I wrote most of this post back in June and never got around to posting it. Oops! I figure I probably should share before I start high school next month!

Woohooo I’m officially a high schooler! No more middle school!! I can’t even explain how ecstatic I am to be out of that prison. See ya never!

Graduation was on Monday and the last day was on Tuesday. My school has a whole ceremony and banquet- the whole shabang.

My dress is one that I bought at TJ Maxx about 5 years ago – for $3! It was always too big, but when I tried it on this time it fit perfect!

We took lots of pictures and had a dinner. I seriously ate so. much. pizza. My belly had no feeling.

I gave a speech. This is something I never imagined I would do. It was actually more of a poem since it rhymed. It talked about the memories of middle school and what to expect in high school. Everyone told me I did great, and it was really fun writing it!


Then we had a dance for a few hours. No one really danced, but we took lots of pictures. And you know what? I had fun!

I really hope I have a good time in high school and enjoy it. It’s my last 4 years of living at home and not having to worry about things. Let’s just hope I remember that!

Do you remember your middle school graduation? What about high school?

Team Dinners

Last night was really fun! Since it’s our last tournament EVER tomorrow we had a team dinner at my house. First I’ll tell you my other meals yesterday. I ate well!

I attempted to make sunny side up eggs but I suck at making eggs. I ended up having an egg sandwich! And a banana.


Call me crazy, but I think school lunches are delicious. Thank you Michelle Obama for making them healthier. I ended up not bringing the leftover rollups and had hot lunch.

You get so much! Buttered noodles, salad, green beans, banana, and milk. I wish I had more time to eat it, I’m always so rushed!


We had a practice after school then went to my house for tacos!

Yum yum yum. I couldn’t have a taco because I can’t eat meat on Fridays, so I made a delicious salad!

Multigrain chips, lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, black beans, and salsa. I had seconds! I ended up having about three of my step mom’s scotcheroos because hey, it’s the weekend and I hardly ever have sweets! So. Good.

Then we went downstairs and played Just Dance which is so fun. I don’t know why I hardly ever play it!


After the dinner we all went to a friend’s birthday party! There was lots more food but I didn’t eat any junk. It doesn’t even look good to me!

I did have a cookie though. They’re her mom’s specialty and delish!

I got hungry a little later and didn’t want any of that food, so since I’m practically family over there I went in the fridge and got a Greek yogurt. Mixed with cocoa powder and peanut butter, YUM!

A few of us made a “Harlem Shake” video. I finally know what it is! I kept hearing about it but didn’t know. Stupid… but fun! I’ll post the video when my friend sends it!

I didn’t go to bed that late, 12:30-1. Nothing compared to the others! I was up by 8 this morning and felt good. It’s been a long time since we all had a sleepover!

How often do you get together with friends?

Omg… just saw a commercial for Carrabba’s. Pasta Seconds? Don’t mind if I do! 

Now I just have to find the nearest… 244 miles. Ugh. #smalltownprobs

Special recipe coming soon! 😀
