Kelsey and I, circa 1994. Don't you miss hair like that?

Tomorrow I finish my last final of summer school (hallelujah), then I head to the lake to celebrate the 4th of July (and Camila's birthday of course), back to Zona (holler) to celebrate Coti's birthday, Lake Tahoe with the family and then my beautiful cousin Kelsey's wedding. Summer is almost here and I can't wait to start celebrating with everyone I love. So, to my last final of summer school. Please don't be to difficult and please go by fast, because it's far past time to start celebrating summer.

"And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer."

I have known these girls for two years now, worked together, hung out together and gone to concerts together. I have been waiting for two years to get to go out with them on their 21st, and now it's here and I'm not. I wish I was there girls! Have the BEST day, we'll make up for it one day. I love you both and I can't wait to see pictures from your fun night!
....go check out their blogs, they're my favs.
I haven't been in a huge blogging mode, besides pictures, videos and songs. School is kind of taking over my life, but soon it will be summer and I'll be back in action. But in the meantime, here's some fun, get-to-know kristen facts. Happy Tuesday.
I am...Kristen Grace. Daughter, sister, best friend, girlfriend, student.
I have...the most wonderful family in the entire world.
I wish..to be a great lawyer.
I hate...when people chomp their food/gum.
I fear... a lot. I watch too much Criminal Minds.
I hear... that the wildfires in Arizona have yet to be contained. (Learn how to help here)
I search...daily to find happiness in everything
I wonder... if this is God's plan for my life.
I regret...nothing. Regrets lead you nowhere.
I love...my family, my friends, my boyfriend, my dog and my God.
I ache...when I see people I love cry.
I always... say a prayer before bed.
I usually...am a very happy girl.
I am not...afraid to speak my mind, although this has gotten me into some trouble in my life.
I dance...only when slightly intoxicated.
I sing..... I don't, unless I'm in the shower or car. I'm tone deaf.
I never...leave someone I love, without telling them I love them.
I sometimes...cry when I hear people sing.
I cry... a lot. Watching TV, anything regarding the US or the military, a glass of wine and Grey's Anatomy, or kind of just whenever.
I am not always... as confident as I wish.
I lose...interest in movies, books or conversations with people when they can't get to the point sooner than later.
I am confused...by hate. It's so much easier to love.
I need... to believe in myself more.
I should... I am, so grateful for this life.
Who Are You?

I love birthdays. All birthdays, not just mine. I think it's because its a chance to have all your friends and family in one place and celebrate all day, drink good drinks, eat good food, and spend some quality time together. I was kind of bumming yesterday morning since I wasn't going to get to see some certain Arizona people but it turned out to be one of the best days. Adam surprised me bright and early with his beautiful gift, my girlfriends took me to lunch, happy hour and dinner with Adam at this amazing tapas restaurant and then drinks with some law school friends. I am so blessed by the people in my life, and although I was far from my family and friends, I got to talk to them all, ichat a couple and Adam reminded me that I'll be home with them soon. It was the best day. So, thank you to my friends, family and Adam for making it a day for the record books. I am so grateful for you and can't wait till the next birthday, Coti... get ready, it's almost your turn.
