When the Lights Go Out...

Just this past Thursday I was at a neighboring high school playing a volleyball game, when the lights go out. Lame Sauce right? The worst part: Game was canceled, and I had to miss an hour of chemistry to get to that game! Anyways, after a bunch of traffic trying to get home from the high school, we decided to make pancakes for dinner on our gas stove(which is why we don't have an electric stove like my Grandma) and barbeque the hamburgers we were going to have for dinner. It was the most fantastic dinner in the history of starvation(not sure if that's spelled right??) for me. Basically, there was no power at my house from 3:30-11pm so the real major question is: What do you do during a power outage? We depend so much on electricity today that it is hard to find fun things to do when you can't use any of it. So this is what I did:
1st: Cell Phone- I drained my entire battery texting a bunch of people all night long, and I prayed the electricity would come on so that I wouldn't have a dead phone all day Friday
2nd:Books- Before the sun went down I read a lot of fun and interesting books
3rd:Hoping/Praying- I just kept waiting for a phone call saying school was canceled, but it didn't come until 9:00 which then meant Disneyland all day Friday!!
Basically, in the end, The power outage was very uneventful(besides the fact that my whole family almost died in a car accident, but that's another story) and totally worth EVERYTHING!!
Here's a funny picture to keep your spirits up:
Not entirely sure what this picture came from, but I found it on my camera when I uploaded my pictures and it made me laugh

Fall Fashion Favorites

I know I've been lacking on my fashion posts, mainly because I'm at a complete stall with all fashion ideas. Occasionally I have these crazy random ideas, but put myself back to normal before I look like a freak in public. Now that school has started, I feel more obligated to dress cute everyday and actually wear makeup so therefore I will post more clothing items soon.
I wore this skirt on a pioneer trek just in the beginning of August, so trying to wear it again is a lot of pressure to make it look cute and normal. I think I did a pretty good job with it
Right now I have an all time favorite shirt, and a fabulous pair of shoes that I'm sort of obsessed with! The shirt looks like this:
Heritage 1981
And the shoes are the Sperry's shown in this post.
This Jeanish shirt thang is super easy to pair with some colorful jeans or tuck it in with a skirt, and it still looks completely fashionable. Honestly, I think I wear this shirt to often but it's so dang hot all the time that it's super hard to be fashionable! People hopefully don't recognize the shirt... until now ;) Anyways, here are some cute outfits where I have worn this shirt.
I wore this to my Highschool's 1st Football game of this school year. It was supposed to be a white out, but plain white shirt's are so boring, so I added this shirt and a cute colored pair of jeans.
I wore this to a church dance the other weekend, and absolutely love this outfit I put together in less than 5 seconds
