Yesterday & Today's Endeavors


Yesterday my friend Caitlyn invited me to a 'Silent Film Festival'
We watched silent films from Charlie Chaplin, an animation, and a few others!

It was soo fun!
I ended up eating too much popcorn though...hehe.
Thanks again for inviting me chica! I had a BLAST!
Then today when I woke up I remembered
exactly how it feels to be a woman...


I have pretty terrible cramps right now.
I want to go crawl back into bed,
but blog posts seem to be my remedy at the moment.
Oh! And I hope they let me give blood this week,
if all goes well *crosses fingers*
hope my iron levels are high enough!

But anyways!
Earlier today my sister, Kaitlyn and I went to

(that's me and Ono... I'm the baby. awww yeah you can tell me I'm adorable I don't mind..hahaha.)

Yeah but back to where we went...

As if I need more clothes...sigh...

But I did have a lot of fun!

On the way there we blasted Lady Gaga down the highway
And sang our hearts out. :D

I bought one shirt and Kaitlyn bought a *cough cough*
few things... *COUGH COUGH* right Kaitlyn?
But boredom has come back to me now that I'm home...
I'm off to do homework again! (YAY! not.)
Next weekend I'd like to go back here...

or here...

or here...

Think you could help me get there?? haha.

See you on the flip side! (whatever that means :P)

Argh Grr

Don't you just hate those people that are constantly pointing out your faults?
Or telling you, you're not good enough?
Cause I sure as heck am!
I'm especially upset about that stinkin'
I go out and do something with my really awesome friend
and sisters, Callie and Kaitlyn
and she is incredibly rude about the fact that
"I didn't invite her"
and then comes back and tells me
that I should stop lying because
"I am a sinner"

I really don't enjoy her company.
At all.

So I'd appreciate it if she'd just get over it.
Please and thank you?
With a cherry on top?
Thank you.

Gosh high school drama is annoying.

Sorry to put all this on you
but something it helps if I fume a little.
WHEW! I feel better!

Have an amazing Wednesday!

I hope no one calls you a sinner! xD
Seems to be quite a popular accusation going around....
Peace & Love

T to the O to the M to the S

Oh my goodness gracious!


After babysitting these not so nice children for an entire day,

I went out and treated myself to


Aren't they gorgeous?!

And with every purchase they donate a pair to a child in need of shoes!
It's okay you're allowed to be jealous of their awesomeness... hehe.

In other news,
my mamacita, my sister Callie, and I
went to an Asian Festival on Saturday.
It celebrated all the different types of Asian culture.
It was pretty cool.
I bought this:

And a little monkey cross-stitch thing
that unforunately didn't photograph well
but I'll be sure to share once it is finito!

Geez now I have to go finish all my stinky homework...

I mean really she-who-is-not-to-be-named World History teacher
must you give us three (average of 50 question) outlines per week??
Which is 3-4 sentences for each response?
I'll be up all night... :/

At least baby Rose will keep me company

this is her sleeping by the fish tank
did you know that she sticks her little paws into the fish tank and

EATS our fishies!

We're down to two fish left

and counting

I'm a Mommy

Quite a handsome devil isn't he?
Yes I am the proud adoptive mother of Leonardo.
My kitty.
You know those moments when you feel like something is perfectly
right? Well when I first 'met' Leonardo that's exactly
how it was.

It was about a year ago in our local Pets Mart.
My siblings and I always stop into see the kittys.
And when I saw him he wasn't the most attractive little kitten.
He was slightly malnourished
I held him for a while and then gave him back to the nice lady.
Until he started meowing,
And I'm not talking a few here and there...

That's when I knew he was purrfect.
I heart my Leonardo da Kitty.

Do you have any crazy pet stories?
Do share! :)

Happy Late Valentine's Day!

That Thing Called Love
by Manaia

Ashes to Ashes - that thing called love

It is a trial sent from above

But to succeed, you must have trust

In the one you love - Dust to Dust

Fire and Water - opposites attract

Each fill in the gaps the other one lacked

And when it seems, not all is well

Love will get them through - Heaven and Hell

Heart and Mind - mine are yours still

For cupid will choose anywhere, at will

Love's arrow flew, my heart you stole

Now I am yours - Body and Soul

And All My Love - words can't describe

The love I have for you inside

Whatever happens we'll make it through

And I'll forever be - For You.

Some of my favorite tunes and scenes from good movies

in honor of Valentine's Day...

I may have celebrated single, but if you have love in your life

then everyday should be Valentine's Day! :D

Sorry that I've been so out of blogging lately...
This entire week pretty much has been revolved around
Yep. It was my last tournament of the season... I'm a little sad.
I actually enjoy going debating against people from schools all over Texas.
People think debate is boring.
And you know sometimes when you have to research
a topic so much, it does get a little of that.
But then again you get to learn about stuff you've hardly touched on in your regular classes. And when you get up to debate against your opponents. It is soooo empowering! You have no idea. I feel really strong, STRONG, I am invincible, INVINCIBLE,

haha no that last part didn't come from just anywhere...
it came from this song!

if any of you ladies are ever having a rough day, I usually end up reciting these lyrics in my head. It kinda helps! hehe.

Sorry 'bout not posting lately... I sorry...

You know I LOVE YOU!

xx, Jessica

Things going through my head right now...

So I'm sitting here trying to do my homework.

Algebra 2.


I just don't get it, I just don't get it.

But when I googled something about radicals and finding x

on the images I spotted this:

HAHA! That just made my day 105.989% better!

Did you know that where I'm located it was like 39 degrees outside?
Yep it sure was!

And guess what I wore!!?!


My Italia sweatshirt, a t-shirt, shorts, and long blue soccer socks.

Hey I know what you're thinking, but I'm not going to sacrafice my outfit for the weather!

Score one for Jessica Leigh La Lou, Weather-zip!


Diamond in the Rough + Callie

HOLY GUACAMOLE! My sister Callie aka the Magical Bean got featured on the Diamond in the Rough blog! *sniff sniff* She's all grown up and getting featured on proud.. *tear*


You won't be disappointed! :)

PS: I bet she'd love it if you'd stop by and tell her how you liked her feature! hint hint, nudge nudge :P

Quote for the Day: Feb. 7,10

"The human race has only one really effective weapon, and that is laughter. The moment it arises, all your irritations and resentments slip away and the sunny spirit takes their place."

-Mark Twain

I know you can't tell but when I put Napolean-Dynamite on Michael's head he was laughing hysterically! xD

Wednesday, February 3, 2010

Well here's what happened...

The day began with my alarm jerking me awake thirty minutes earlier than usual...6:30! *the horror* I was originally supposed to go running-didn't happen. Then I started getting ready and settled on my Italia sweatshirt, converse, straight-legged jeans, and my club t-shirt. *yawn* Usually my outfits are a little more exciting.
But anyways! I looked outside and it was pouring. Hmm... I suppose that's why I settled on my boring outfit. hehe. After pulling my hoodie over my head and grabbing my green backpack, I was on my way!

Blah blah blah.. rode the bus..blah blah to school late...blah blah blah...

FIRST PERIOD! I had French 4. We worked on a site commonly known as the conjugator! Eek! Then in 2nd period because things were so thrown off with the Juniors testing, we ended up watching Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. My friends and I joked around in the back and I ended up drawing Harry Potter on my knuckles, complete with a pull out wand on my thumb. Ahh...the joys of boredom. haha. Third period was Algebra Deux. Enough said. And lastly I had English, one of my favorite classes. My friend Caitlyn and I talked a lot, I would daydream and she would tell me what happened. She's such a good friend! *tear*
Then I got on the bus again, got home, and then the PAR-TAY started!!! WHOOO HOOOOO!!

not really... I did homework.
PS: I was featured on the Diamond and the Rough today!!! Eeee! I mean how cool is that?
Thank you so much again Rhianne! You are too sweet. :)
Come check my post out!
