Okay well let's see first of all school started. It's been fun, I've met alot of cool new people who i have never talked to before and I really like my teachers and classes. OMG i got to get school supplies It was so awsome. I love shoppping for school suppplies...I know I'm a dork LOL but seriouslly my pen obsession has gotten really bad...LOL so anytime I am with you and I want to buy pens, save me from myself...Well we are finally getting settled into my new house. It's been great! EVeryone has come and helped us to set up and just all together haleping! Thanks to those of you who were kind enough to show the love and get off your big but to help and if you didnt then you so suck! LOL JJ! But seriouslly thanks:) Well then there was my birhtday...OMG it was SO awsome, first i got breakfast in bed and then Erika brought me doughnuts and like all day I got special treatment from everyone and I even got "Happy Birthday" sang to my like eight times! EVEN IN FRENCH! This is the words to the French "Happy Birthday" song I think:
"L'anniversaire heureux à vous, l'anniversaire heureux à vous, à l'anniversaire heureux cher Lindsey, l'anniversaire heureux à vous! " Isn't that awsome?! Well anyways we get to 6th hour english-BLEH- and in walks Kristen Ellington with the most gorgeous arrangement of these deep red roses that I have ever seen! I was OMG those cant be for me...well they were and you'll never guess who they were from...DAVID! (I know that was a tough one right? LOL) OMG they were a dozen beautiful roses and there was even a letter with them and everything in his handwriting...I was so shocked and happy that I like started to cry...typical girl I know I know, but it was so awsome. And everyone was asking who they were from and then I told the whole story of how we met and everything and in the note it said the roses were "just to hold me off since my gift would be late" I was like OMG hwo can you get any better than this, but omg it gets so much better but that comes later:)...Then in 7th hour Branden found baseball bat in the parking lot and he decided he would brake it in half and give half to me and half to Matt bc it was Matt's b-day too, so the whole class signed it and so I was walkin around with a dozen roses and half of a baseball bat LOL So then me, Samantha, Erika, adn Courtney go home after we got coffee at CC's of course and we all just chill and get ready to go eat suishi. Well we get to the sushi place and meet Lanee there and have so much fun and eat lots of suishi and cake. It was the best! we got to sit on the ground and eat... it was super cool! Oh and I got so many wonderful gifts form my friends THEY R THE BEST! :) Well after that we went to Wal-Mart because we wanted to get supplies to make shirts for a dance we were going to the next night. We saw a bunch of PBS ppl there so we talked to them. We talked to Chase and David R. for a while but I dont think Daivid wanted to talk to us because he kept walkin off...oh well! Our shirts were awsome shirts...we cut em up, sewed em up, sewed patches and made them look like jerseys. Our team name was the siren and my name was Bombshell and of course my number was 83 because thats David's number...hehe but it was so much fun because we stayed up until like 2:00 making these and then we deicided to have more cake (or cakle haha samantha!) Well so we are eating the cake and all of the sudden Samantha just take sthis whole slice of cake and stuffs it in her mouth and we r dyin laughing bc she is just so random and tehn Erika does it and with cake all over her mouth and face says "I was trying to be random!" Then she ran to the trash can and spit ti out bc she couldn't chew it...it was dobage cake ...7 layers of chocolate sooo good...so that was very funny. The next day we went to my dads to get ready and had more cake (a double layer icing int he middle cookie cake with hot pink incing...yummm!) and got ready for the dance. We also ate McDonalds for dinner which is always goodful. I got tons of great gifts form my mom and dad too by the way like BeBe clothes and a juicy couture tracksuit as well as mall gift certificates and the dvd's chicago, waht a girl wants,a dn the lizzie mcguire movie!(the best ever! LOL josh and david) My dad and donna also got me this like beautiful pink heart necklace but I wasn't sure if I would wear it so they said I could pick something else out so soon I am going to get to go to Anton's and pick a piece of jewlery out!! YEA!!! So after the dance which was so incredibly awsome we came home ate cake and candy and watched Chicago and then we woke up early the next morning and went to church. So that was my amazing wonderful birthday weekend :) So yea the next week at school life's goin fine, school's bein a whore as usual LOL JJ, so yea everything is just all great until thursday when I get sick and go home... yup its like the second week of school and I am as sick as can be with a sinus infection...well everyone is like freakin out...my mom like got me medicine but is like do u feel so bad that you need a steroid shot?? blah blah blha erika and everyone is like well u need to get better bc of this huge vocab quiz and all this stuff and my dad had told me that we were takin these pics for the newspaper after skool friday so i had to make sure i looked good on firday bc right after school we were going to go and take this pictures bc they were doin an article about him...so friday i roll out of bed feeling so cruddy and looking even worse and I have to make myself look all prettiful and then take this huge test supposedly. Well i get to school around 5th hour and everyone is like OMG YEA u r here and I'm just like what is the deal why does everyone care so much, well i felt really loved bc im jsut thinking wow everyone loves and missses me YEA! Well I tell Erika that I might not go to the game and she is like OMG YOU HAVE TO GO! She like put the fear of God in me so I was just like okay okay fine I'll go LOL Her and Courtney also said they would come and see me after school which I htought was weird bc they never come to see me bc of steppers, so I am just like "Okay whatever" jsut as oblivious as can be... So I'm going thro the rest of the day and I go to 7th hour and I go to my locker and I go to wait and try to find my dad. Well Samantha and Lanee were walking and talking with me and we find my dad so he is like "come on we have to go now!" I was just like okay whatever...so then I see Mrs. Elaine and she has a video camera and I'm like what is that for but she didnt say anything so now I have like a huge group of people just like following me .... mom, mrs. elaine, cortney, erika, lanee, samantha, dad, mrs. susie, jordan...but still I am so just like "Lalalalal" and then Erika runs up to me real fst from behind and is like me and courtney have a suprise for you and some one is just like "what is it" and Erika is covering my eyes and is just like "O just another little b-day surprise" She told me to keep my eyes closed and then another set of hands covered them. Then suddenly I get real nervous/ excited. I was thinking and hoping that it was him, but I didn't want to get my hopes up and have them crushed and smothered to oblivion LOL so Erika says "guess who" and im like okay im not going to say his name bc I know that it can't be him, well I say Courtney like the stupid kid I am and then I turn around and it was him! It was DAVID!! OMG I screamed and hugged him and just was SOO excited! Everyone was laughing and all happy...the pictues were a set up, the HUGE test was a set up, everything was a set up and he was really there. I know it sounds so cliche and stupid but it didnt feel real it felt like dream...It was so great! They got it all on film too! HEHE! I was so exciteed so we went to CC's to like catch our breath and talk. That's when I found out the weirdest part of all this. See he had decided that he was going to come down here with his own $ for my birthday and surprise me (or the weekend after that bc it was a 3 day weekend) Well about two days after he planned this, my dad called him and his parents and was like I want to fly him out here to surprise Lindsey on the weekend after her b-day. NOw my dad had no idea that he was planning on coming so that is what was so weird or rather a blessing form God is what we decided :)...So they all had been planning this for like 3 months. Like everyone but me knew and they all had made up these stories like him telling me he was going to the apple festival and all these other lies. Then of course my wonderfuly amazing little friends purposely tried to make me sad so that way when he got here I'd be so much happier...gotta love them huh? LOL Well we went to my house so I could pack a bag for Erika's and while I was up in my room was when I (a typical girl LOL I started to cry once again, bur very very happy tears! :) Well the next day was Saturday and we all woke up and were jsut chilling out and the night before David had showed me a little wrapped box and he said that was my present for my b-day! I was like OMG r u kidding, the roses, u being here, and now this! OMG! So the next day I opened it and of course we filmed me opening it LOL OMG it was the most beautiful amythest heart hanging down from a little silver drop with 4 little diamonds it it and it was hanging on a I think its called a Lexi chain. I was just like OMG its so beautiful! I couldnt believe after everything he had done, he now got me the gorgeous necklace! It was so beautiful and I love it so much! Later of course ... tears of joy lol lots and lots. It really is like the best gift I've ever gotten. Everything was just so perfect with him there/here. Then we went to the PBS game and Josh came too which was so fun and we went to eat at Applebees. The next day we went to the mall. At the mall Erika and me got matching f-ball jerseys for the LSU football game which were so hot! We tied them up and wore little shorts and we looked so hot...hehe. It started pouring raining so we all ran inside, well I left my purse out in the rain of course and Josh went to get it for me, well as he was getting it he slipped! I wasnt with him when he did but I felt so bad! David also fell but that wasn;t for any reason hehe but i didn't laugh of course ;) Well Sunday we went to church and then to my dads for a BBQ and a bunch of friends came over...Sunday was great bc that was the day that David asked me out :) So sorrry boys (LOL) as of August 31, 2003 I am officially taken by like the greatest guy ever! ;) It's weird tho because our anniversary is the samr day as Branden's and his girlfriend Megan's excpet on the day David asked me out tehy made one year exactly...cool huh? Well after hamburgers and The Lord of the Rings we went to see the movie the Italian job at the new theatre the Rage. It was very very good... Then Monday we went to Erika's aunts new house...ALl of ehr family was there which is so fun bc I love her family and they liek make me feel so welcome...plus the food was awsome, so were the movies (Chicago and the Lizzie McGuire movie LOL) and then we all went swimming...It was so much fun! Then we had to leave early and go back to Erika's. Well that night me and David watched Big Momma's House and that was very FUN ;) The next day I skipped school so we could spend the last day together. It was a very sad day :( We rented Darkness Falls and watched that which is a really good movie and then we went to eat at Ralph and Kacoos with my dad and Donna. Well then the part that I hated ...the airport and seeing him off. We had about an hour b4 he left to say goodbye and then he left...:( I cried a lot that day and night...I cried SOOO much ... So that was like the best weekend ever ad now I miss him like crazy, but its only a little ways to Thanksgiving and even shorter to Homecoming (which hopefully he can come to!) But I miss him sooo much and love him alot so it will be hard, but absense make the heart grow fonder ;) This school week was pretty hectic...I had to do all these tests, make up work, and this paper thing. We also got internet at my moms on Thurdsday so that is like so awsome! We voted for class officers on Friday and we will know on Monday who won. I am nervous bc I ran for VP and I really want to win but I ran agianst Katherine Mc. and Samantha D. and I think it will be close so I am nervous! Well this weekend I wen to the PBS football game (by the way we ahve won two weeks in a row) and then Applebees again with a ton of ppl! We had like 35 of us. It was so much fun bc we got all this food and I got to talk to these people who went to PBS last year but I never knew them b4 now and they are actually really cool. I know one was Jacob, but I forgot the name of the other guy, but they were both seniors last year and now go to LSU and they were really cool because they were like tellin me their girl problems and all ... it was fun. Then it came time to pay and some ppl are cheap so we were stuck with a bill of 220$ and was like 40$ short so the ppl who did stay chipped in and helped out. Then after that I talked to Dave for like 3 hours form midnight to 3 AM. That was when I told him my dad would fly him down for H.C. if that worked out. He was excited! Yea finally I get to make him all happy and excited for once...at least I hope so :) And then I was falling asleep on the phone so we hung up. Yesterday we went to the Back to School Bash...me Courtney and lanee anll went to Erikas to get ready...lets just say getting ready was the fun part. Then dance sucked and we were all sad so we just came home and ate food and consoled each other. That's what girls do. And now it's Sunday after church and I have just typed like an entire book so my fingers are like numb with typing so I guess thats all until later!

Many, many things have happened...
I haven't written in like four days I know but we have no internet at my house which really sux, but the internet guy should be coming on like Thursday I think! Yeah! No more boredom! Last night I fell asleep at like 6:30 on the couch and then my mom came in at liek 8:30 and was like go to your bed! LOL Well I did but of course I had to wash the face first so I did. I also brushed my teeth and and used these new crest white strips for night time which was so weird because it left like this thick gunk on your teeth so you feel like you didnt brush your teeth and all night you are trying to suck the spit out of your mouth and get it down so it wont like wash away the gunk. The things crazy ppl will do for beauty...lol...well after that I went up to bed and I wasnt tired anymore of course, so I decided now would be a great time to finish my first summer reading book since skool starts in like a week lol! Well I read like 60 pages and finished! YEAH! GO LINDZ! It ws the most idiotic and depressing book. It was aobut this old manwho has no luck at fishing so all the other fisherman dont like him and then he finally catched this 18 foot fish and spends like 4 days trying to get him and the fish is so strong he just pulls the boat along. Well just as hes about to die he finally cathces the fish and he is to heavy to pull aboard so he just ties it by the boat. After all this sharks some and eat the fish and he comes home with nothing and then he falls asleep and dreams about lions and dies I think...I know stupid huh?? Well after that I tried to fall asleep but of course no luck and I fell asleep at about 11:00 and dreamt this horrible dream about people dying in church! Yeah church! If you have ever seen The Ring (great movie) then you know what I'm talkin about when I say that their faces were deformed like the ppl in the movie who were killed by Samara. So I dreamt about deformed dead people in church ... creepy huh? Oyeah and they were green...always a plus :/ Well I had drivers ed this past week which was like so fun beacuse the teacher was great and told us all these stories about her getting tatoos in Africa and being wild as a kid LOL I met this guy named Bradley there too. He was cool. So me and Erika (who was in the class with me) hung out with him and a bunch of other ppl like GiGi, Garrett, Seven, ect, ect! Yeah Steven use to go to PBS but now I dont know where he goes but he was really cool and hott! LOL I saw him in Walgreens and we said hey so that was exicting. By our drivers ed class there was an albertsons, tcby, cc's, subway, burger king, snow ball stand, mcdonalds, pizza hut, taco bell, and a chinese place so we had plenty of food choices. We drank lots of mochasippis and cappaccinos and ate lots of french fries...great funn! We had snowballs everyday and all the guys thought the snowball stand workers were so hott! LOL They were pretty I guess but we (meaning girls) all thought they had spider eyelashes! LOL There was also three very odd characters who kept roaming about ... they were crazy lady (a older woman with very bruised scratched and cut legs who sits outside CC's everyday and steals liquor from Albertson's and talks to herself...I feel sorry for her, but its sad), drunk man( he is drunk of course and will stumple around and try to talk to you and is very creepy), and this guy but I forgot what we called him (he walked around talking to himself and would hand out flyers and try to sell you stuff) So they were all a little weird, but hey isn't everyone?? LOL We had this thing we would do where we would try to get the most rando things for our de teacher Ms. Kelli...she got things such as a shopping cart, a red liziard named Flipper bc it looked like it was flipping you off LOL, and a live lobster, and much more...much much excitment! Ms. Kelli is the greatest...she is so cool she lets you eat in class, talk, do whatever you want, and she tells stories all the time! If you havent taken drivers ed take form Trinity Driving School on Jones Creek and you will most likely have her. She is awsome! Well the good thing is that I passed so I am happy and all is well...now all I have to do is drive in October...uh oh LOL I stayed at Erika's one night too and we ate candy and watched tv and took a nap and went swimming and went to the tanning bed, but not in that order LOL Erika and I have much fun when we get together HEHE I shall miss drivers ed very much because it was much funn but oh well ... Tonight I went to eat at On the Half Shell...it was yummiful. I had shrimp and various other seafood items. Then we went to Marble Slab Creamery but the line was too long, so we went to Blockbuster and got candy and videos! I got Junior Mints! That is possibly the BEST candy in the world...they combine minty middle yummifulness with chocolatley outer coverage...genious idea I swear. I watched Titanic today too, but only the first video beacuse that s the better half befor ppl start to die, but the second half has its good parts too like when the people slide down off the ship LOL! Just Kidding! I also have watched Gone with the Wind twice...we have no cable so I've been watching movies...I like Scarlett O' Harrah except that she can be a total two-faced witch sometimes! Especially to Melanie...Melaine loved her to death and all she wanted was Melanie's man Ashley...O well I will think about that tomorrow LOL (line form movie) Well I think you should definatly rent that and watch if you havent seen it yet because it is a awsome movie...I'm suppose to go to Blue Bayou tomorrow with Samantha too so that should be funn and Sunday I am going to see a movie with Courtney and others I believe, so I am so excited because I havent seen all these ppl in a LONG time! YEAHH MANY OUTINGS WITH FRIENDS! LOL I talked to David tonight for like the first time in a while ...yeah great funn! I MISS HIM!! :( My cell phone bill was $150 last month so this month I had to watch my minutes and well I have 30 minutes left to last me until August 22nd...see how well I watch my minutes!? LOL My puppy (shitzu peekense mix) got a haircut and she use to be liek this big fluff ball but now she has like no hair except for on her mouth and tail so she looks emaciated with these little fluffs on each end LOL And when shes wet she looks like a drownd rat or a old chinese man as my momma puts it lol! Shes still adorable though...i luver her! I know this has been so random, but its my journal so o well! I've typed like a book so I will type more tomorrow if I feel the urge...Bye!
