Florida born and raised but I've got Jersey in my veins...Now the story continues at a place known to most commoners as Stop N' Play...lol. Before Stop N' Play, Peggy and Sarah came over for lunch.
After we spent two hours having lunch and opening presents(which were so gracious and heartfelt), we headed to Stop N' Play for some mini golf and arcade games.
The birthday girl of course went first:
And last but not least, Karen(my mom):
We had a BLAST acting like goofs missing the hole and high fiving each other when we finally got the ball in the hole. LMAO.
Afterwards, we played some arcade games and me and my mom got 463 tickets which we used to get free pretzels because after all that FUN we were hungry. Plus, you all should know I got engaged. ;-)
JK. That's a ring pop I got for my tickets. :D
Overall, my 20th bday was EPIC and THE BEST bday I've ever had.
Again, a HUGE THANK YOU of a HUG to each and every person that wished me a happy bday, got me a gift, or just happened to think of me and smile on August 4th. LOVE YOU!♥
Now, I know you all are all but dying to know what tv shows I've gotten hooked on THIS SUMMER so with two weeks left, here ya go.
1. Extreme Makeover: Weightloss Edition
Extreme Makeover Home Edition is already an inspiring show so when I saw the commercial for this show, I just knew I had to watch it. Not to mention, at the sight of the main trainer Chris Powell and his nice bod, I was sold. This show inspired me to really make this summer THE SUMMER where I really start working toward a healthier, happier me. Matter of fact, as soon as I finish this blog, my sister and I are working out. She wants to look fierce for back to school. I just want to look FIERCE. Period. Definitely liked this show a lot and hope they renew it for another season. Did I mention Chris Powell has a very sexy physique? ;-)
2. Believer's Voice of Victory
I watch this every day anyway because I LOVE JESUS and I love to learn how to live victoriously but this summer, the broadcasts were EPICLY full of revelation. For example, twice this summer, Pastor George Pearsons and Gloria Copeland covered Prosperity. Total, I watched 20 broadcasts regarding God's will for prosperity this summer. I learned a lot. I think I wrote an in depth blog about it in the beginning of the summer so please read it, and find out about God's will for your prosperity. Matter of fact, today I got a letter from Saint Leo telling me they are no longer printing out and mailing students bills, you must access them online. Sure enough, I accessed my bill and it's for a rather large amount for one 20 year old to afford naturally but I know SUPERNATURALLY all my needs are met according to HIS riches in Glory through Christ Jesus and my BILL is PAID IN FULL. So far this summer, every day I confess this: Money COMETH to me NOW in Jesus' Name! and so far every day this summer, I have received MONEY! Trust me it works. God provides♥
3.The World According To Paris
When you hear the name Paris Hilton, what comes to mind? In my mind before watching this show, I thought rich, stuckup heiress with no concept of reality who is just another dumb idiot making a name for themselves. After watching this show, I absolutely LOVE Paris Hilton. I think she is such a sweetheart with a genuine heart for her friends, family, and her fans. Plus, she is OBSESSED with Tinkerbell/Peter Pan just like me so that's cool too. :)
This is the spinoff show from Sonny With A Chance. I'll admit, I was skeptical to watch this because Demi Lovato MADE Sonny With A Chance such a great show. Without her, I figured this show wouldn't be as good. I was wrong. This is like the PG version of Saturday Night Live for kids. It's cute and there are some highlarious moments on most episodes plus they always have a musical guest at the end of the episode. I still hope after Demi releases her third album and goes on tour, she returns to TV because she's just as amazing as an actress as a singer. :)
5. So You Think You Can Dance
When this show first came out, I could care less. Now it's in it's 8th season and it is FREAKING BEAST. The people who end up making the Top 20 each year get more and more BEASTLY in their dancing talent. As a dancer myself, this show just makes me want to dance. After each episode, I just want to do ballet. If only I could dance as good as the people on this show but no matter what, dancing is meant to celebrate life so no matter how much talent you have or classes you've taken, I hope you dance♥
6. Friday Night Lights
I'm going to be honest. I HATE Football. I think it is a ridiculous sport. Yet, that's my opinion. And no, that doesn't make me Anti-American because I do love my country but I just would rather watch NBA or skateboarding because it has more action for me. I don't understand football at all. Sorry. :/
With that being said, I loved this show. I didn't start watching until the 3rd season because Jeremy Sumpter who played Peter Pan in the movie with the same title got cast on the show so I watched in support of him, and I was hooked. The reason I liked the show is because it shows that high school football is more than the Friday Night Lights. It's individual players and coaches and their lives all coming together to obtain a victory that the whole community celebrates. It was a deep show and I will miss it dearly♥
7. Switched At Birth
Imagine going 15 years not knowing that the child you brought home from the hospital wasn't really yours but someone else's. That's the premise of this show and it's very interesting. Plus, one of the girls plays a deaf girl so it's interesting to see sign language on tv. I've learned some from watching this show which I've always wanted to do. Sign Language is the kewlest language, just saying♥
8. State of Georgia
Who reading this remembers That's So Raven? Growing up, I absolutely adored that show and now Raven Symone returns to tv looking slimmer and better than ever! She plays Georgia, a girl from the state with the same name, who relocates to the Big Apple(New York) to go after her dream of being an actress. It's definitely as funny as That's So Raven so I definitely think you should check it out!
9. The O.C.
My sister owns the first 3 seasons on DVD so I started from the beginning because I hadn't seen it in so long. As soon as I started with the first episode, I missed the show so much. It was such a good show with ah-mazing acting and funny hotties like Adam Brody. Now I've got to start on Season 2.
10. Dogs 101
I LOVE DOGS. Just in case you didn't know. The dog I love the most is my best friend in the entire world. This show is for anyone whose a dog lover or for people researching dogs to decide which dog would fit their family. I have learned a lot from it so far. It's amazing what shows you stumble upon at 3 a.m. on a Sunday morning with your mother. Haha♥
11. Jersey Shore: Season 4
The idiots are back. Er. I mean, the Jersey crew is back. This time they've brought their party lifestyle to the great country of Italia. So far, I like this season. No surprise that it premiered last thursday on my bday. Also, it is no surprise that Mike is being a trouble maker again, Deena is making out with women, JWoww lost weight and looks Wow!, Snooki also lost weight and found The G in GTL, Pauly D saying, "THE PASSPORTS ARRREE HEEEERRREE!", Ronnie is ignoring Sammie, Sammie is ignoring Ronnie, and Vinny is sporting a beard. LMAO. "Good morning, Vincent. Good morning Vincent's beard. Did you both sleep well last night?" I'm a Jersey blooded girl who loves to laugh so, So FAR SO GOOD♥
Before my final thought, please pray for me. Monday I embark on accomplishing one of my summer goals: Getting my f-n driver's license♥ I'm so going to BEAST this! :D
Next blog will be about the music I've discovered this summer and about me going back to Leo and what I've learned this summer♥ Look for that but please do NOT hold your breath. I don't need that kind of liability. ;-)
Until next time, here's a WORD of FINAL AUTHORITY over the state of this nation's economy: "Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; in the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me walk upon mine high places."-Habakkuk 3:17-19♥ In short, when everything is failing around you, praise God and YOU WILL PROSPER.
Love Times Infinity,
