This Year So Far....

So, it has been forever since I've written a blog!!!!! This blog will be to catch you up with me. I will write something about each month (January till now).


    I finished up my Christmas break the first two weeks. The day before I went back to school, I went to Council Bluffs with my boyfriend, his dad, and his cousin. We went to see a monster truck show. I know what you all are thinking, Donna went to a monster truck show. Yes, I did. Kyle, my boyfriend, won tickets form a radio station in town. We went down and it was cold and snowy. On the way home it was snowing and the visibilty was terrible!!! Luckly, Kyle's dad was good at driving in it. The next day we were suppose to start school but the snow had accumaleted fast and we didnt have school. YEAH!!  I didnt have any of my school stuff ready. That day we scooped the side walks. The night before, Kyle had brought me home and blowed the snow that had accumaleted so that there wouldn't be much the next day. Our youth minister came over to see if we needed him to blow the snow because he promised Patrick that while he was gone that he would do that if we need him to. (Patrick was still in Missouri) The rest of the month was school.


    This month we started by going to Missouri to go see Patrick graduate from his training and to bring him home. (Ft. Leonard Wood) It was along drive down. We ran into some highways that weren't cleaned off. So it was interesting going through there. The graduation was cool. After he was done we loaded up the van and headed to Springfield. When we got to Springfield, we went to the World's largest Bass Pro shop. By the time we got there snow had started to fall and people in Missouri dont know how to drive in snow. We walked around Bass Pro for awhile, I got a shirt and a hat. Then we went and got some bbq and took it to go. It took us a long time to leave Springfield becuase the people sucked at driving in snow. We made our way to Clinton, where we stayed for the night. The next day we went to Kansas City to visit my dad's side of the family. We all met at my aunt's house then went over to a Golden Corral to eat. After we ate, my dad stayed because his truck was in Kansas City. The rest of us went all the way to Lincoln and stayed the night. That night we at at Fazolis! I love that place. The next day we went to church at Capital City (where Michael, Mark and their families go). We spent the morning with them and played with the kids. We went to lunch with them  and then left for home.

   At the end of this month, I went out on tour with the show choir. We would leave before the sun came up and came home around supper time. I love show choir. Northeast's show choir is better than being in the high school one. We went out for 5 days of tour. Our show was around 45 minutes long. I loved the songs we sang but some of the boys I had to dance with, I really didnt like but oh well. Some songs we sang were: The Way You Make Me Feel, Celebration, James Bond Theme, Uptight, Chain of Fools, Jai Ho, Rhythm of the Night, Haven't Met You Yet, L.O.V.E, Hey Baby, and many more. We went to 3 states: Nebraska, South Dakota, and Missouri. On our last night out we were over by Kearney and so we ate at Red Lobster. I don't like seafood or fish so I got a really good chicken dish. I love (most of ) the people that were in show choir. My director is super amazing and the acompianist is also super amazing!! We were like one big family. :) After tour was over, I only had 1 week to catch up with stuff before finals.

   The second week of May was my last week of school(finals). I only 1 final, my math class. I was gonna have an Ear Training and Sight Singing final but my teacher is the acommpianist of the show choir and figured it wouldn't be right to give a final beings we were gone for 2 weeks. YEAH!!  I would have failed it anyways because my ears don't like being trained. School ended and I was happy. I went with my boyfriend's family to Crete, NE, to see his sister graduate from Doane College. It was kind of a chilly day and the ceremony was outside. You know Nebraska's weather, experiencing more than 1 season in a day. After the graduation the sun decided to come out and it was nice out. We also had to move her out of her dorm and back to Norfolk. This past week I went to Sioux City with 2 of my girlfriends for a shopping trip. We ate at Huu Hot, yummy!!! I bought some things but not alot. At Old Navy, I got a one piece swim suit that is blue and halter. I had been looking for a plain one and it was even 40% off!! :) I love Old Navy!!! The day was fun and  I got a few cute things to wear on Sunday's. 

So, I'm caught up for the most part except for March!
