Lexi's Summer 2007 Highlights

School has been in for over a week now, and I've been so busy I've barely been able to sit down at the computer. But here are some highlights of this summer:

May 11
Me and my dad arrived in Utah. The next few days after that were long and hard. I was an emotional wreck because I missed Japan so much. I cried all day, didn't want to eat, and was on the computer all day emailing to Japan.

May 24
Last day of school (I wasn't going to school yet though) and yearbook signing dance that I went to. It ended up being a really lame dance (I know my summer sounds pathetic up until here, but it gets better)

May 26
Susanna Grace was born!!!

May 31
Youth Conference at Kessler Ranch. The dance at the end was very very fun.

June 5
My first time at Youth Court and my first day working at Larry's

So as you can see, I had a very busy summer. I barely spent anytime with family. I was spending all my time with the friends I thought I'd never make.

The things above are what I did, but here are some firsts for me this summer -

  • Hanging out with my friends all day on the 4th of July
  • Going to Seven Peaks with my friends
  • Seeing Nick, Austin, and Ricky at the Tokyo 3rd Ward reunion for the fist time in 5-6 years
  • Getting a boy at Youth Court Conference sitting in the corner at the dance to come join the circle of dancing. He ended up becoming one of my best friends
  • Having my crush at Youth Court Conference ask me to dance on the first slow dance
  • Having a boy really swing dance me at the 24th of July dance.
  • Got my hair colored for the first time
  • Got fake nails for the first time

  • Eden and Noah moved to Provo - sadness indeed
  • Gina became my best friend

Songs that will always remind of Summer 2007 -
* All the songs from Hairspray (You can't stop the beat!...)
* All the songs from HSM 2 (What time is it? It's summer time!...)
* "Hey There Delilah" by Plain White T's (I'm a 1000 miles away but girl, tonight you look so pretty, yes you do, hey Delilah here's to you, this one's for you...)
* "Before He Cheats" by Carrie Underwood (Slashed a hole in all 4 tires, maybe next time he'll think before he cheats...)
* "What Hurts the Most" by Rascal Flatts (What hurts the most, was being so close, and having so much to say, and watching you walk away...)
* "Umbrella" by Rihanna (now that it's raining more than ever, know that we'll still have eachother, you can stand under my umbrella...)
* "Never Again" by Kelly Clarkson (They may believe you, but I never will, never again...)

* "Thnks Fr Th Mmrs" by Fall Out Boy (Thanks for the memories, even though they weren't so great)
* "The Sweet Escape" by Gwen Stephani (If I could escape and re-create a place as my own world, and I could be your favorite girl, forever perfectly, together...)
* "U and Ur Hands" by Pink (I'm not here for your entertainment...)
* "Don't Matter" by Akon (Nobody wanna see us together, but it don't matter no, because I got you babe)
