I'm. So. Sweaty. :P



Ohhhhh dear.
Ok, so all week we knew something was wrong with our air conditioning. Well today it finally broke. I'm blogging to you in my house which is about 89 degrees right now. Uggggggggggg.

My poor mom has been cleaning all day in this heat :( Poor thing! I can't imagine it since I am dying just like this :(

On a good note, my dad is coming back today! He has been on a mission trip to Cuba all week and we are so glad he is back! He is actually on the way home right now and we are so excited! I think our air only broke because he isn't here to fix it. Of course.

Well, I'm gonna go because I'm tired, I want some Diet Coke, and I think Zoey is about to have a heat stroke :)


Haha I'll blog more later :)

Love and sweatyness,
Em :)

Obsession :)

Ok so I know my last post was about Les Miserables and I said that I was going to go watch the Music Man, right? Well, last night my Dad and I instead ended up watching the 25th anniversary concert of Les Miserables and can I just say I was speechless. And crying.
All of the songs and performances were completely beautiful and I could listen to them all day :) (Plus I'm probably going to watch all 3 hours of it again tonight...thats how obsessed i've become!) :D

Well, 3 of the songs stood out to me. I already posted "I dreamed a dream", and so thats not one of them, even though it is still one of my favorite songs ever :) All of the songs were so wonderful, and so famous that it was hard not to post all of them!!! But these 3 have been the ones I have been listening to the most so far on youtube :)

1. On My Own



This is such a beautiful but sad song. Eponine sings how she is so in love with Marius but he is still in love with Cosette. So she is forced to imagine his love for her. Such a powerful song and I love it :)

2. Red and Black/Do you hear the people sing?




This guy has such a beautiful voice, not to mention Nick Jonas :) (more about that next!) But it is so cool to see them plan about there revolution they are planning! They all have such powerful voices and I love it :)

3. Empty Chairs At Empty Tables




Ok, so far this has been the song I have been completly obsessed with. I already loved Nick Jonas, and already loved broadway!
Nick Jonas + Les Miserables = I died :)
This is such a powerful song where Marius sings because all of his friends were killed during the attack, but he still lives because he was rescued. He sings of his greif and how he wishes they wouldn't have died in his place. I love how far Nick Jonas has come and how versitile his voice is. It goes to show, once you get your start in broadway, you will never change! I could listen to this song all day and it always seems to make me cry :)

Well, I hope you loved all these songs and GO RENT THE DVD!!! I got it at our redbox in town and I'm not sure I'm giving it back just yet ;) It is wonderful and I think just about anyone would enjoy it :)

Love and Marius,
Em :)

I Dreamed a Dream

I love Broadway musicals!!! Some of my favorites include Wicked, Aida, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, and more recently, Les Miserables :)

I borrowed the CD from my friend/cousins bf Carson about 3 months ago and downloaded it but I never listened to it because I wanted to watch the movie first. Well, about 3 weeks later I found out that my "over the summer" reading project was actually Les Miserables! I had heard rumors that the book was...well...horrible. But it just goes to show you that you can't judge a book by it's cover, because I loved it!!! True, it was a tough read. But It had a wonderful story line and I'm so glad I finally got around to reading it and I hope I will read it again in the future :)

Now that I've finished the book, I've started listening to the cd and I fell in love! I can't believe the talent some people have. It is incredable.

One of my favorite songs from the cd, and just in general, is I Dreamed a Dream. It is such a wonderful, powerful song and I have loved it for years! I didn't realize that it actually came from Les Miserables until just a couple months ago because I first heard it on Glee :) Glee did a wonderful job with this song and I  <3 <3 <3 listening to it :)


Here is the origional version performed by Lea Salonga at the 25th anniversary concert of Les Miserables :) The whole soundtrack is INCREDABLE so go check it out!!! :)


Well I hope you enjoyed these songs, I know I did!!! I gotta go now because I'm gonna watch The Music Man!!! :) I <3 that movie!!! Blog ya later ;)

Love and Dreams,
Em :)

This is my life...

So I have a 1 1/2 year old Dashchund puppy named Zoey. I love her to death but sometimes she can be SOOOOOOOOO loud!!! This just happened like 5 minutes ago...

video

She has this ladybug toy that vibrates and she goes NUTS over it!!! She will do this for hours...and hours...and hours, which you can probably tell tends to drive me crazy :) Oh well, I love her just the same and now it's time for bed :)

Love,hugs,and ladybugs,
Emily  :)

Brand New Room :)

I love my parents for so many reasons. They are always there to help me out, they always love me no matter what, and they always give me someone to talk to :) Another reason I love them is because they know me better than I know myself.

Yesterday, I come home from golf and mom wouldn't let me go in my room so I knew something was up. She wouldn't stop smiling...or jumping. I got reeeaaaallll suspicious. When she FINALLY let me in my room, I was BLOWN AWAY!!! I had been wanting to redo my room for a while now and my Mom and Dad did it all by themselves while I was at school, picked out everything, and it is better than anything I would have done!!!

Here is my beautiful new room :)




I couldn't have asked for anything more and a HUGE thank you to my Mom and Dad who did this for me!!! I love yall soooooo much!!!

Just an idea for my next post...I am SUCH a bookworm and I was wondering if every once in a while I do some book reviews??? Let me know whatcha think ;) I will blog some more later!

Love and Dashchunds,
Em :)


My teeth are cold.

Sooooooo.....about 2 weeks ago, I sat down in a chair at 9:30 am and everyone around kept asking why I wouldn't stop smiling.
 Over and over I told everyone around, "I'm getting my braces off today!!!" :)

YES, after 2 years of no popcorn, special toothbrushes, and lots of cleaning, I'm FINALLY free from my metal mouth!!! I can't tell you how excited I was to smile all day long :) Plus, I got a day off from school! Woop Woop for that ;)

Here is a picture of my new pearly whites ;)


I hope you like!!! BTW, look for more posts tonight :) It is my blog-catch-up day :)

Love and retainers,
Em :)
