So nice today, I love it!
Anywho... Moriah and I were walking home and saw a toilet with a free sign in someone's yard, so we decided to have fun with it and take pictures on it. It was really funny.
I'm seeing Grease at Shorecrest tonight and I'm muy muy excited! I've heard that's it's going to be "AMAZING"... so we'll see.

This was waiting for me when I came home. A little snack that welcomed me. There was an "H" in front of the "i", but I ate it before I took a picture. They are REALLY good.
last night was also 31 CENT SCOOP NIGHT at Baskin & Robbins. AWESOME. Chocolate and peanut butter is where it's at!
And also I bought some stuff to start my African Art Project with. I'm very excited for that.

You like my ribbon? Me too!
I was SO tired today. I think I was sleep walking all day because I barely remember what happened  or what I was doing. I almost got my phone taken away in bio, Aerobics was boring and I almost fell asleep, and cooking was easy and took us like 20 minutes or less, so we ended up having nothing to do and were bored. I'm about to eat top ramen and chicken. yeah!

I looooooooooooooove sunny days. They make for good picture taking.
p.s. Ramona loves me, she just doesn't know it yet


Sunday was the last day =(
But it was a great morning. The service was good, The Singing Company rocks!
I think a lot of people were touched this weekend and Sunday was just a very emotional and inspiring day for some.
Our church was one of the last one's to leave so we were all just hanging out, having a good time. I ended up being chased by Graham and Isaac then kicked around some soccer balls with Isaac. And I officially have bad aim.

I just love the field at camp, and this tree brings back great memories. I can't wait for camp to be my home for the summer.




Saturday I pretty much just chilled with my amigos. Some of the coolest people on this planet. Elise came over and hung out with us too which was fun, and it was nice to see all of us camp peeps back together.
So the first picture is the most amazing that happened all weekend. I seriously think it was the highlight of everyone's day... SO... we were all just hanging out in the gazebo (me, Amanda, Alexandra, Isaac, Sam, Elise, Deryn, Mejee...etc) when someone realized that Sam and Elise were wearing the same color shirts. Then Deryn had on a jacket that was the same color. So we were ready to take a picture of the three of them, THEN Isaac realized that under his sweatshirt he had a t-shirt that was the same color. So we made all of them get together for a picture when we saw that Elise's truck was the SAME COLOR!! We all moved toward the truck... and here you go! It was just amazing and we were all cracking up and saying that they look like a family and that we should make christmas cards or wallet sized pictures to send out. And it's not even a common color to wear, so really... it was spectacular.
ALSO, that night one of the special guests (Rick Alonzo) did part of the meeting. He painted these four pictures in less than an hour, with his hands, and also while doing some martial arts type of stuff. It was intense. All the lights were off, and the paint was water based and glowed in the dark. All of them are the face of Jesus and it took a while to see it. But it's there, and it was breathtaking. The first painting he actual did upside down and I had no idea what he was doing, then when he was done he turned it around and I saw the face. He had a really good message while doing all of them too. That was my favorite part of the weekend.


Friday I went out to camp for YOUTH COUNCILS (youth retreat). It was such a great weekend and it went by way too fast. 
When we got to camp we had dinner, then went to the meeting, then had snack... THEN everyone was dancing in the gym. It was a lot of fun. Lots of loud music, screaming, jumping, dancing and head banging. I was the only one who didn't end up with a sore neck, but I did get a headache which sucked. 
1. Emily Grindle, this is what our schedule/name tag things looked like
2. the stage for the band with cool lights
3. the crazy crowd

I can't believe it. I have been doing the 365 project for about half of a year already. WOW!
So I didn't know what 365 divided by 2 was from the top of my head. So I used a calculator and it said 182.5 and I didn't care about the .5 part so I just went with 182. And that's TODAY!
I'm really happy. 
It's a SUPER nice day today, like sunny AND hot. My favorite kind of weather.
Anyways... I just decided that I wanted to take pictures of half of myself. Nothing too special or anything. Tell me which one you like best. Because I had no idea!


Yesterday I was about to go to bed when I realized that I didn't take any pictures during the day. So this is all I got for ya. My name is Emily. Janell gave this to me. A very pretty rock with a very pretty name. hahahah just kidding!
I saw the movie '17 Again' with Isaac though. It was actually pretty good. I liked it!

Yesterday my family drove down to Portland because my cousin, her kids and my auntie were there for the week. So we met up with them at the spaghetti factory. We shared MANY laughs because my cousin (and also my birthday buddy) is hilarious and probably the funniest person I know. And Graham, Lauren and I hung out with her kids, who are super cute!
It was a lot of fun, until I found out that there were snakes around in the bushes. That's when I went inside.


*woke up at 5:15 to finish my essay. That equals... 5 hours of sleep= not enough for Emily
Friday was an awesome day. I got an early dismissal to go out of town for one of my really good friend's 16th birthday that evening. My dad and I decided to leave early because traffic is full of craziness trying to get out there on Fridays. But I think we got there a little early because we had a few hours before I had to be at the party. So we just hung out. Jamba Juice, Borders, Itallian restaurant with JUMBO plates of spaghetti. It was fun.
WE kind of ran out of things to do, so I just called my friend's sister to see if I could come early. (oh did I mention that it was a surprise party?? and my friend had no idea that I was even coming!!! cool huh?) So I ended up going over early and helping set up. Then everyone started coming and it was really fun. She was SO surprised that I was there and I was very happy to see her.

They set up a disco ball and music in their garage for dancing and stuff because her and her sister and some of their guy friends know how to swing dance. So a bunch of us learned how and everyone was dancing with each other. It was a great party. <3

*oh and I'm ridiculous and forgot to bring my camera to the party. =( so this was the only picture I took on friday. It was a very nice day but I was mostly in the car.


Ok, for those of you who read this daily I am truly sorry for not updating it sooner. Life has been absolutely crazy lately with school, late nights, early mornings and it just seems like I've been non stop all week. So here I am again. Don't worry, I haven't died or anything. Let's get back to pictures now...
So thursday was absolutely CRAZY! I got home and my dad was there. He said that the door was open when he got home and that Ramona wasn't inside or out in the back. WE thought she was gone (but don't worry she safe at home now). I was only home for about 30 minutes before we left to pick up my sister from school and then head down to the Mariner's game. I got a chance to do 0 homework. The game was actually quite boring, I fell asleep. But I did have some garlic fries, MAN those things are the best. We then got home around 11 and I still had a whole rough draft of a paper to write AND I had to finish my friend's birthday present for the next day. So I skipped the homework and stayed up until 12:30ish working on the present. And finally had to sleep...

I went to the ARC this afternoon and hung out down there with Isaac, Sam and Mejee. They have their own little bowling alley and it's SO COOL! I've always wanted to use it and today I did. I'm so good at bowling. (haha)
And I love bowling shoes. If I could I would buy a pair and wear them everyday.

I just like the colorful paint.
and these flowers, and the sun.
