Then, the next weekend was the Senior Dinner Dance. All my girls and I got together and went to this lovely event. Minus the instant mashed potatoes, cheesecake the size of my middle finger and a student's iPod as our DJ...it was pretty fun. I wore one of my moms dresses from her youth.
Then just a few days after that, I checked out at school. We signed yearbooks, said our goodbyes and picked up our cap and gowns. I'll miss it, but it sure felt good to walk away knowing i'd never have to go to school there again. Finally Thursday May 28th came and it was time to graduate! I started off the day with a nice breakfast with my friends Sara, Lindsey and Jessica and Magelby's Fresh.
Then we went over to the David O. Mckay Events Center for graduation rehearsal, spent the rest of the day getting ready, and finally, headed back over there for the real thing. It was great walking down that red carpet as my name was called and pictures of me flashed on the screen. Finally, the moment I had been waiting for...Congratulations Class of 2008..."WE DID IT!!!"
After the big event and plenty of pictures, a bunch of friends and I headed over to Tepanyaki for a celebration dinner! We all loved it, the boys and their shrimp catching contests and us girls and our beauty. haha. Then we changed and headed back to the school for the Senior All Night Party! This was a blast! We had big blow up toys, twister, karaoke, a spa, lots of food, bingo, a hypnotist, and more! It was a great way to end high school.
So now it's all over. Time for the big stuff...Almost. As for now, Summer is here and now that I am finall recovered I am ready for the fun!
much love, emmyj

I am going to be joining the zoobies on the hill this fall.
There is no turning back now...I have a place to live.
August 27th I will be moving into Heleman Halls.
It is crazy to think I will be moving out. I've never shared a room or a bathroom, being the abandonned youngest child that I am. But I am excited! I have been emailing my soon-to-be roomate and she seems way cool! She is from Elko, Nevada... CRAZY!!
Here I go...starting my future.

I even made Kyson (my Prom date last year) take a picture with me!

ok so... first... we recently took a FANTASTIC trip to the lovely city of Cancun in Quintana Roo, Mexico! Actually, technically we were in Puerto Morelos, which is just south of Cancun, much more secluded and still gorgeous.
We loved the weather when we finally got out of the Cancun airport. We were so excited to get to our hotel, even if we had to drive through the ghetto to get there. We stayed at the Hotel Marina El Cid. It was an All-Inclusive resort, all our food, fun and virgin Pina Coladas were included right there. It was gorgeous. The view from our room definitely wasn't bad either.
went snorkeling...and almost died
Overall the trip was awesome. Minus the couple fights and illnesses, we did great.
Some other highlights of the trip include:
a bike ride into the local city
trying to watch the sunrise
diet cokes with lime on the beach
coconut ice cream to die for
jumping off the cliff in the pool
the slide in the pool
morning sretching on the beach
not playing volleyball
our mini rental car
giving tips to our waiters
when the snorkel trip ended
when daddy wasn't ill
bargaining so well with the locals
making sure our dog Cobi was safe at home
and much MUCH more!!
On the way home, we had a three hour layover in Dallas and were lucky enough to spend time with our sister Sonja, her husband, our three nieces and one nephew! We ate lunch in the Rainforest Cafe and celebrated our nephew Jenson's birthday! It was so fun to see them since we rarely get to! We love out Texas family!
Thanks to our parents for taking us on this lovely vacation!
We miss Mexico...

I think my my mom and my dad are pretty amazing for missing work and sitting in the hospital with Emmy for so many days. Family is the best :)
