Week 6

Hey, y’all! It’s me again- and I can’t believe another week has flown by already! Homecoming week was so stressful and busy, and it seemed endless when it was happening. This week is almost as busy as last week was, dress rehearsals every night this week, and opening night for our school’s fall play is this Thursday! If it’s not one thing it’s another, but such is the life of a junior in high school. *sigh*

Anyway, since I know you’re all dying to know . . . Homecoming was a blast! Everything went as perfectly as possible, and it truly was like Cinderella. ☺ The decorations (which I spent all day Friday working on) looked divine and the friends I went with were SO fun! Not to mention my wonderful date who was a perfect gentleman and got us everywhere safely and on time. Despite the fact that I accidentally killed our flowers, I nearly took a spill into the mud during pictures, and the weather was less than gorgeous, my friends and I had a phenomenal time!

Homecoming endeavors aside, I have a realization to share: I have become my mother. It’s official. I was at lunch with my friends and a girl at my table started taking the meat out of her taco. When I asked why she didn’t want to eat the shell she started complaining about how the school had switched over to wheat shells and the flavor just wasn’t the same. Without thinking I began listing off all the ways whole-wheat shells benefited your body and got off on a tangent about the health benefits of choosing brown rice. When I finally got off my soapbox and looked around, all my friends were cracking up and teasing me, saying I’ve been spending too much time with my mother (a healthy kids educator for those of you who don’t know). Whoops! At least I’ll be healthy while eating my brown rice and whole grain taco shell that doesn’t have bleached, enriched flour! (Wow, that wasn’t nerdy at all…)

Have a great week and remember to choose whole grain taco shells! Allie ☺
