Wow! Mardi Gras is AMAZING! Standing in the crowds hoping to catch beads is one thing but standing up on the float throwing beads is so different. Last night my family and I (along with a family friend) got to be on the King and Queen float at Universal Studios Mardi Gras. After a while your arms starts to hurt so you quickly try to switch your throwing arm without the guests getting really angry. Since we were up high it was hard to get all the little kids in the front who had a few beads around their neck. At one point we stopped and we still had to throw beads. We were told to be halfway through the beads by the halfway point. Unfortunately, I was halfway through before the halfway point so I tried to slow down but it is really hard. People started to scream louder and jump to try to get my attention for more beads. Luckily, our bead captain came around and gave us more beads. Before we got on the float we were told to get rid of all the beads. By the time we got halfway I was trying to keep throwing beads so we ran out but not to run out until the very end. The parade was done so quickly I hadn't realized that 45 minutes had gone by. I am so glad that we got to do this again and I hope to do it again next year! :)

Tomorrow night my family and I get to be in the Mardi Gras parade at Universal Studios. This is not the first time that we will be in the parde. Last year we were in the parade and it was really cool. I just hope that my dad wil feel better since he slept most of today. I am so exicted!!!!!

So I just finished this really awesome book series called Christy Miller. Man, that is one of those books where you have to spend every waking minute on it even though you don't want to finish the book. At the end of the very last book it ends very well, but I wish the author would continue the story. The author did come out with a spin off called the Katie Weldon series and the Sierra Jensen series. They are both friends of Christy from Christy Miller. The Christy Miller is one of those books that makes you taste what she tastes, see what she sees and all the other sense. It even makes you want to curl up in bed and just cry when Christy cries about something. Once you finish though I wanted to throw the book against the wall because of how it ended. But then I realized that the Katie Weldon series continues after Christy but from Katie's view, not Christy's. If you need a good book to read then I highly suggest it!

Welcome to the new year! We have all survived another year. 2009 was a great year but, 2010 might be better. Everyone always makes new year resolutions like "I'm going on a diet" but they get bigger or "I am going to spend more time with family'" and end up never leaving the side of the computer or comfort of their couch. This year if you are making a resolution then make one that you can reach like get to work out by going for a weekly bike ride so then you can lose weight and go for a bike ride with your family. Another easy resolution is to keep the TV turned off so you can tune into the news that is most important, the news of your family. You can gain lots of information about your family by just listening to them. Listening to your kids is very helpful when it comes to school. If you take time to listen to the kids then they might say something useful that could help you with their assignments at school. Another resolution is to stop worrying about what the future holds. 2012 doesn't mean the world is going to end. Global warming may be killing our world and you may complain but, you are the person who is killing it. Why do you have to drive to pick up your kid from school when they go to school within a reasonable walking distance and if it is a nice day ride your bike to pick up the lottery tickets from the closest 7-11? Have you ever heard that a little goes a long way? Well instead of using 12 pounds of goop in your hair every day why not use a half of a half of a pound so you don't have to throw away a bottle of hair spray and gel a week.
