I just got back from Big Stuf. It was awesome. Here is a video & some pictures to prove to you just how awesome it was!
This video with this music was removed from my Instagram and my YouTube, so to see it there you’ll have to listen to less-cool music. But it’s here.
I would say more, but I’m a little tired and I believe the video does the job.
So yippeeeeeeee for Big Stuf!!!!
This music is not my own, it belongs to Hillsong. Just saying for copyright reasons!!
Today concludes my academic career as a sophomore in high school. As of 11:05 today, I am officially a Junior. In honor of that, I thought I would share with you the top ten things I’ve learned this school year.
With all of that being said, I’m thankful for new friendships, changes, sweet teachers, an incredible school, and a faithful God. It’s been a SWEEEEEET one + I’m so excited for the next two years. Go Pats always. God is good.
Last Night, we threw a surprise graduation fiesta at mì casa for Hannah and Maggie, and it was SO. MUCH. FUN.
Once everyone got there, we all stood at the door waiting for what seemed like forever for them to show. We figured Maggie would be on time, and we worried that Hannah would be late, so we sent Maggie for tomatoes, and when Hannah got to the house Abby Kate went out there to “talk” about some issues. Then when Maggie showed up, Michelle and AK walked them to the door where we all screamed “SURPRISE!!”
About a week before the party, I asked all of our Bible Study girls (did I mention Hannah, Maggie, and Jen are our Bible Study teachers?) send me a note and pictures for a scrapbook for each Maggie and Hannah.
And then we partied and took pictures and had the most fun celebrating our graduadas (I think that’s right)!!!
Okay, now I need a siesta.
To some of my dearest-
Right now I’m crying, but I’m mostly just smiling. Smiling of how G O O D (incredibly good) the Lord has been to me in giving me you. Smiling of the memories we share of my first years of high school and your last years of college. Smiling of birthday cards, sweet chats, and letters in the mail, and of D-Nows, baseball games, group snapchats, and parties we’ve shared.
My heart and prayer for you is that you go onto a new adventure where God uses your gifts of super kindness and super encouragement to bless someone else the same way those gifts of yours have blessed me. I pray that God uses you to be all the encouragement and spark that someone else needs, just like you did for me. I pray that you love with your whole heart- like you’ve loved the Lord and each of us in these years we’ve shared. I pray that you change lives- as you’ve changed mine, that you change the world as I know God will use you to. I pray that this new chapter of life will bring you joy, like our friendship has given me, and that it will provide you with the happiness of seeing everything you’ve dreamed of fall together. I pray that you’re successful wherever you go, and I pray that teaching and nursing are everything you’ve dreamt them to be.
I cannot wait to watch you each succeed in every aspect of life these next years.
Your friendship is truly a treasure- I can’t wait to watch you share that treasure and spark with some incredibly blessed patients and students.
No matter how far apart we are, I’ll always send you birthday cards 🙂
Congrats, you little grads!
Your super proud pal, Elle❤️
I am not a very big reader. However, I do enjoy it when I have time and it is not forced upon me 🙂
So you have it- three random books on my bookshelf!
Incase you were wondering, Wonder is my favorite book.
I have a large fear of failure.
I feel that I’ve failed at this thirty days thing. I’m really sorry. I truly am.
Anyways, Day 22 was what makes you different than everyone else.
I see it in my creativity, in the perspective I have on certain things, and in my lack of confidence.
So yay. There was 22.
Now for 23. I don’t exactly remember what it was- something like favorite foods or something?
Chick-fil-A. It wins every time. I also love Newks. So there you have it 🙂
Something that makes you happy.
A lot makes me happy. A LOT. But my friends make me happy.
Well, most of them…most of the time:)
Kelsi and I went to two baseball games this weekend. I grew up around the sport, and Kelsi’s obsessed, so it’s fun.
Maggie and Michelle were also there.
We went to Newks. It was good.
Then we went to the baseball game. We lost, but it was super fun anyways.
And then we had Yogurt Mountain.
Happy Opening Day!⚾️
P.S. Some of these pics were from the second game I went to🙈‼️‼️
We can’t decide on a name for this segment, so for now, I’m calling it “Abventures.”
Meet my friend, Abby Kate. I like to call her Abigail Katherine, though, that is not at all her name. Abby plays tennis, has two dogs, loves Disney, drives a Volkswagen, devours a Baja Blast, and loves Jackie Kennedy with all of her heart.
Abby and I decided that we’d start touring the town and blogging our adventures. So, here is our first Abventure:
…We had plans to visit a cute little antique shop on Main Street, but it closed. So, we ended up going to Capitol Park Antiques.
It had as many gifts as it did Antiques, but here it is:
Nicknames you have, why you have them
My name is actually a nickname.
Elle (Ellie) is what I go by, but my actual name is Eleanor. My middle name is Leigh.
So, yay. Now you’ve heard all about my actual nickname-name.
Some friends call me El sometimes for short- I don’t get how it can get any shorter than Elle.
My Instagram is also @doctorellee so that’s my nickname, too.
Happy Saturday and Happy Nicknames!
