And this is some of those magnificent doodles which I tried selling by tacking them up on our bulletin board. Needless to say I didn't make much profit. haha. :)
PS: I collaged the cover of my agenda because I didn't like the way it looked! Do you like the way it turned out?

I went shopping with my sister Kaitlyn today! YAAAAYY!!! I bought this and this
I also got two shirts from Zara but I don't feel like taking pictures of stuff right now... haha. Sorry bout that! Anyways then we went to Godiva and debated over whether we should get chocolate covered strawberries or hot chocolate. The choices the choices. :D We ended up going with the hot chocolate but the strawberries are still my favorite.
After that we came home and I found this really hilarious guy on youtube! His name is Mitchell Davis, and he makes really random, funny videos. For example:
That's pretty much my day in a whole so far! Have a great day/weekend!

- The Great Gatsby
- The Grapes of Wrath
- To Kill a Mockingbird
- The Color Purple
- The Lord of the Flies
- Gone With the Wind
And so many others! It was a real eye opener reading this play. I feel that books have something to teach us, whether we agree or disagree with it is our choice. But the knowledge and free thinking ideas we achieve from reading is the best thing about it! It truly hurts when I see people burning books... it's destroying someone's thoughts and ideas. Spread the awareness during Banned Books Week! (let's just pretend like it wasn't a few weeks ago..haha. whoops!)

So here it goes, I have to share ten honest things about myself:
My name is Jessica. I go by JessicaLeighLaLou on the blog because it's a nickname my mom gave me when I was a little girl. I have countless other nicknames including: Guadalupe, Lilly, Lovie, Frenchie, and so many more!! My dad is responsible for the majority of them. :)
I only eat carrots with Ranch dressing...I think they taste strange without it.
When I get bored on the computer or in computer classes especially, I hold down the mouse and highlight stuff randomly. I drives the people next to me crazy because I'm constantly clicking. hehe.
I live in south Texas but I have no accent, hardly ever say "y'all", and the only time I ever sort of dress Western is when I go to the Rodeo once a year.
When my dad used to drive me home from school, I always used to request "Harper Valley PTA" by Jeannie C. Riley. I know all the words!
I write my S's backwards... starting from the bottom and circling upwards.
When I go running I usually try conjugating French verbs in my head.
I've traveled all over Europe and wish I could go back so badly! I've also lived in Germany for 7 1/2 years in Stuttgart and Kaiserslautern-both wonderful places to live.
I get goosebumps everytime I watch that part in Mulan when she climbs up the wooden poll and "We Are Men" is playing in the background! goosebumps
I love everything about blogging: the posting, the comments, the followers, etc. It makes me feel like I'm standing out slightly from the rest of the 304,059,724 Americans.

Hello my fellow bloggers! This weekend I went on a trip to Houston, Texas to go see some of the Terra-Cotta warriors on tour from China! How cool is that?! First we went to a place called the Forbidden Gardens which had replicas of the the soldiers and tons of information on them. Here are some photos of that...
Then after that we went to the Houston Museum of Natural Science and saw the actual Terra-Cotta warriors and some other artifacts from China. I wish I could show you photos from that as well but they weren't allowing people to take photos within the exhibit. It was so cool and I had such a blast!
PS: Don't forget to watch the video about the warriors and if you want to learn more about them then click here!
Are there any fun trips you've taken recently?
