Big Yellow Moon Risin' Up Over Them Old Hills

Wow, it has been forever since I last posted. My month of June has been absolutely crazy! I am one of those people that likes to know what is going on every day and I like to look back at a calander and remember what happened on what day. I'll give you a little glimpse of my calander for June.
I have a color system to give myself a quick idea of what is going on that day.
I only have 3 uncolored days. My month was extremely busy! Let me just go through the most important days for you (:

June 4: A friend named Dave Black had his awesome cd release! The band is Anchors. The cd is Feathers. The music is awesome.

June 5: 2 very good friends of mine got hitched! Yay! Jess looked stunnigly beautiful in her wedding dress and Austin looked pretty dashing himself. (: The wedding was so nice, small, but lovely. The reception, however, was a blast. I had such an awesome time dancing and talking to good friends that night.

June 7: My BIRTHDAY!! Woot Woot! Haha, I finally turned 18! I was counting down the days til this birthday from day 365. Being 18 seems to be all it is cracked up to be. I didn't do anything too wild like a strip club or anything (I don't think I'd enjoy that too much) but I did buy myself a lotto ticket and some cigars (: My ticket was a dud and my cigars are all still wrapped. I don't know if I will ever smoke them. Probably not. Also for my birthday I got 2 Polaroid cameras! I still need to get some film for them, but I am certainly excited to get started with them. I also went out and bought myself a 32g iTouch and I am loving it!
(my birthday presents: cameras from mom and dad, Casino Cash, cigar and awesome F7U12 birthday card from my brother, other lotto ticket, Black&Milds, and peach flavored cigar from myself. Picture taken with my new iPod)

June 11: I took my ACT test and my mom says my results may be available now. EEEP!! I don't think I did so well on this guy. I felt like I was really prepared, but when the tet day came I was so nervous and the actual test is WAY different than those silly practice ones they give you in the prep classes.

June 13: My brother Todd's birthday. (My only brother and sibling.) He turned 20 and we had a fun little party for him with his girlfriend and our grandparents. He is a super strange kid, but so much fun. He's so funny and witty and I love him so much. (I can say that on here because I know he doesn't read my blog.) Anyways, he really likes unicorns and that seemed to be the theme of the day. My mom made him a birthday card with a unicorn on it and we got a yummy ice cream cake from DQ with a great unicorn that he actually drew and we copied.
the cake reads "have a magical birthday!"

June 14: A friend of mine, Jennie Wellsand, had her cd release show in Valparaiso. You definitely need to check out her website and get her cd or you can find her on iTunes. She is AMAZING. Her heart is so big and it is fully dedicated to Jesus (: I love her. Seriously, go check her out.

June 19: Father's Day! At my work we got to wear mustaches for the day. I was loving it.
We already have been over the fact that I love facial hair.

June 20: One of my favorite days this month! My family went to the Cubs VS. Sox game at US Cellular! (: Baseball is a huge thing in my family. We are all some serious Cub fans. And the Cubbies pulled out a win that night! The only night they one from that series was the night that we were there. (: The weather was in the mid 70s and it was a little cloudy but it  was beautiful.

I love my mom and dad so much (: And these pictures made me realize how much I actually look like them...

we all got dressed up for the game (:

June 21: I went to the waterpark with my best friend all day and came home the exact same shade of pasty, translucent, white as when I left. My brother had a theory last year that I just reflect the sun like a mirror would because I am so white. I think he may be on to something. I also got to go to bdubs with my two best friends for our birthdays. (: I missed being with them.

June 24: Behold The Branch cd release!! YEAH! I have been waiting for this day for over a year now and they only started recording in the spring. They are supposed to have a download available for the public so I will let you all know when I find that (: These guys are my favorite group of men (and Ruthie) I have ever met. Each one of them is so unique and funny and real. I have a deep respect for all of them. They are currently away in Bushnel, IL at Cornerstone and I miss them so much. I can't wait for them to come home and go to the show on Sunday! (Ascend The Hill, The Great Awakening, and Behold The Branch @ The Branch. Sunday July 3 at 7 pm! You should come out!)

I guess that is all I have time for today. Another busy, busy day today! More to come soon though. I have been doing more thrifting and crafting lately so I should be posting them! Stay tuned for more. Check out all the links. Mark your calanders for a show this weekend. Have a lovely 4th of July. (:

Nancy (:
