Grandpa Bruce

My grandpa is with Jesus and Heavenly Father tonight. He passed away today, and we are all very sad. We will certainly miss him and his cute smiles. Im sad that he is gone and that I wont be able to visit him again, but ill see him when its my time.

You will be missed
Love you so much,

Country Girl

I enjoy going to the city every now and then, but honestly im a country girl. I like horses, and open space. I like 4 wheeling and playing on lakes. I like bonfires and smores. I like sitting in the car with the windows down, singing country songs with my best friends. I love cute houses that sit on acres of land. I just love it all.

My best friend Natalie and I have had some of our best memories in the country. On the farm playing games on the 4 wheelers like hide and go seek. Going to horse shows, and riding horses. Singing Carrie Underwood and HonkeyTonk Badonkeydonk. We dance to country line dances, and watch country movies. What more could you ask for?

Today my history teacher said that we would all move to a city when we get out of school. And that we would be work aholics trying to get as much money as possible. Well news for him..I could not live in a city. And im not going to unless I absoloutly have too. I do not care how much money I make as long as I can take care of my family. Infact if I dont have to, id much rather be a mom to my children.

I have lately decided what I will do after highschool. I want to go to Paul Mitchell and study hair and makeup and cosmotolagy. I want to make other people happy and beautiful. I want to use my talents and love what I do. And I love to do hair and makeup and talk to people and make them look as beautiful as possible and have them be happy.

So Mr. Stone, if you ever need a haircutt sometime when your out in the country or anywhere but in the city. Look me up.

Makano! He is a famouse latin american singer(or group) I got to dance with him on the stage. It was way cool!

Befor the party I got ready with some friends.

Quincenearas are a HUGE deal here. They are like sweet 16¨s times 3. A lot of money and time is put into them.

I was fortunate enough to be invited to one by a friend from my school. It was incredible to say the least. There was 25 disco balls, camera crews, amazing performers. A theme park, Dancing, gormet food. Amazing decorations! Skype calls with Shakira, Train, Selena Gomez, Katy perry, and a few other latin american stars. There where lots of friends and quite a few famouse people. I of course didnt know half of them because I havent been here long enough to understand who is famouse. It was a real treat though!

It lasted from 9 till 6 in the mouring. (It was a long night to say the least).

The birthday girl was gorgeouse! And it looked like she had a great time. Great memories to have for a while (:


I often think about all the events that have led up to this one very special one. The mission. Right before we moved I whent to a special addition EFY in temple square. It was absoloutly amazing!

Something that was very special was that after scripture study we had a little extra time before going to our next activitie, so a few girls and I had the idea to go sing under the Prophets window. So we started to sing "we thank the oh god for a prophet". At first nothing happened but then one of the secretaries came to the window and waved for us to stay put. Next thing we know, President Thomas S. Monson is standing at the window. We begin to sing some more but of course we are just balling our eyes out. The Prophet led us and blew us kisses and at the end saluted us. It was a preciouse memory that I will always remember.

My efy counselar and I became best friends. She helped me overcome my small fear of moving and change. People like her are reasons why efy is so worth it and so amazing! This upcoming efy ill be attending it at the church ranch here in Argentina. Where everyone speaks spanish. Ive heard its amazing so I cant wait!

Sweet 16! finally!

I think ive been waiting to turn 16 since I turned 13. Im not exactly sure why it was always such a big deal? Maybe because I was jealouse of my friends getting to go out on dates. Or maybe its because its the age you can drive? Or maybe because your right in the middle of teenage years, so your old and young? Yepp, all of those seem to be right!

To be honest I am a little bit sad that there are no guys here that understand and appreciate the value of turning 16 for a Mormon girl such as myself. So I didnt get that awesome.. hahaha. Thats okay, it will come (; On the plus side I have lots of good guy friends, and being 16 does make it easier to hang out with! Either way, being 16 is the bomb!

(two more years and im 18, and finished with highschool baby:)

So for my birthday I whent and saw Breakingdawn, which was fine, but kind of lame. Then went out to BICE! One of my favorite resturaunts! Did a lot of shopping with my mom and got Persico icecream for my "cake"(it was amazing). My dad bought me 16 white roses, even though the lady persissted on him taking all 24. That was one of the best gifts because white roses are my favorite flower and he took the time to remember and get them. Those kind of gifts mean the most to me.

Before I whent to bed I got a call from the assistants and office elders. They tried to be all cool and act like there was a reason they were calling other than to sing to me, but I could tell (; It was super sweet, they sang in english, and just said a few nice things and then one elder wished me happy birthday dreams...I couldnt stop laughing at that, it was so random and I had never heard it before, but hey its creative.

All in all it was a great two days worth of celebrating, and I cant wait till im... 18!!

I must say...this Thanksgiving felt a little different than normal, but we made do. Thankfully when my sister came to visit she brought some pumpkin in a can for pumpkin pie, and some other things! We had a few missionaries over and we played some dominoes and family card games. It was a lot of fun. The food was amazing, as always! When it came time for BAG of course we were all teary eyed. It was especially sweet to here the missionaries. All in all it was a great day.

Insipiration for halloween

I love Halloween! Its so fun to dress up and put on some Bling Glitter! This year while I was shopping in China Town with my mom, I came across a plethera of Hello Kitty. I mean everthing! Was Hello Kitty. So I thought, why not be that. It was a farely simple costume but it was fun!


Oh how I love the Hermana´s. The ones in our mission and the ones from the other missions. I love being one too. When my parents leave for days at a time, the Hermana´s from the north mission come and stay with me. We have so much fun! We go shopping and go out to eat, and talk about life, and laugh. Its a blast. I always look forward to them comming over.

Temporary home

Florida will always be my home. Its where I was born and raised most of my life. My best friends are there, and almost everything that has contributed to making me who I am today, has come from there. Argentina however is my second home. I loved it when we lived here when I was little, and I love it now. I have friends here, and lots of memories. If I had to spend 3 years in a Latin American country, I would choose Argentina every time. So im blessed to live somewhere that I enjoy. By the end of the three years ill be half Argentine and half Floridian...and im happy about that.

Party in Argentina

I love parties! and I love to hang out with my friends. Here in Argentina, especially in my school there are always parties. The big downside is that they start at midnight and go to like 6 in the morning. However my mom and dad were very nice to let me go for a few hours with my friends. I had a few close friends come to my house before to hang out and get ready, and then we were off! We all had a lot of fun, and some good memories.

Unity Day

(part of our dance routine, Lisa almost fell lol)

(team huddle)

Shantam showin that team spirit!

Fer- "go blue dynamite!"

red team singing there chants!

Every year the highschool has a day called Unity Day. Which is a very big deal to the student body and teachers. Everyone in the highschool including administration is split up into 4 teams. Each team is a color. Red, Blue, Black, and White. Once you are placed on this team, it is your team for the rest of highschool. The teams consist of many people from all grades. Its a blast!! I was placed on the blue team. Along with being on teams, you get to pick 3 activities to do that day. Any sport, game, craft, you name it! I picked basketball and dance team. Dance took up 2 blocks but it was soo fun! Every time a team wins at any activitie or game they get points, as well as getting points for team spirit. Well guess who one? THE BLUE TEAM!!! It was a lot of fun, and so great to get to know people better. Cant wait till next year!


I sure do miss my friends in Florida, and in the States in general, but ive made a few good ones here. I was very sad to let one go a couple of weeks ago. Her mom was offered a job back in Germany where they are from and so we threw a good bye party for her. We had lots of fun dancing and eating, and jumping on the trampoline. And even just laying down outside talking. My friends here have taught me a lot already and I value there friendship. It definatly makes me miss the fun times ive had with my great friends in Florida.

Stage Door

I have never actually been in a play before, (besides the ones at girls camp) but since im taking a theatre class at my school as an elective, I thought it would be fun just to try out. I was very lucky to get a role in the play because we did have to audition and not everyone was chosen. I got the role as Mattie, the Maid. I was actually quite excited and felt like even though I didnt have as many lines as others, I could still spice it up a bit. I worked very hard for months along with my fellow cast members and spent long hours after school as well as all day saturday rehearsing. I was very proud of myself because I remembered every single one of my lines, and all of my entrances. Our play turned out great and I had a lot of fun. But...I think ill be taking a break from plays for a while, being an actress is hard work (;

Sun, Soccor, and Matte

( I have no idea why tomas is crouched down so low lol)

One of the P.E coaches taken a break drinkin matte with wills

SAAC is a very big deal at my school. You think being on the Varsity team at school is great? How about competing in a different country against 6 other different international schools from different countries. I think that is very cool. Its a great honor because not the whole team gets to go, only the very best players. SAAC soccor was held at my school this year and the students where able to skip most classes for the three days we hosted to watch the games. It was fun to meet new people, and of course to skip class. The weather was so gorgeouse that day and I was able to take great pictures for my yearbook class. Everything was just kind of laid back and chill, including some of my teachers.

International Day

My best guy friend Gonzalo.

My school is quite cool in the way that sooo many of the kids are from different countries all over the world! I have friends from: England, Pakistan, Germany, Brazil, Israel, Denmark, Bolivia, China, Japan, India, Venezuala, and a few more! Its really interesting to learn a bit of there culture and even more interesting that they are a lot like me! My school has an International Day where K through 12 grade and families come and eat food from all the different countries and listen to music and play games. I had a lot of fun and I got to learn a little bit more about some of my friends culture.
