Lake Clementine3

Lake Clementine!!!

Well, It's that time of year again!!! The Georgianna family reunion. Every year my dads side of the family goes out to this lake called Lake Clementine. Its 7 hours away, really small, and the only way to the campsites is by boat. This means that everything we take camping has to be transported by a boat. I know it seems like a huge hassle, and actually it completely is! But it is just one of Lake Clementines charm. I can't remember a time when I didn't go to Lake Clementine in the summer. This year I was especially excited because I haven't been home in California for a while! I got to see all my family. My crazy family. I dono how I forgot about the tempers, teasing, endless meat, and poor manners of my family. Wow, you just have to love them for who they are! So what do we do for a whole week on a random lake? Truth is, not alot. Thats what makes it so fun! My uncle has this HUGE raft that he blows up and anchors out in the water for us. Lets be honest, 75% of the time we are on the raft. All of us girls that is. We have to muster up the courage to swim out to it because of all the sick nasty seaweed and mushy ground. I'm not even being dramatic, every year it gets so much grosser. The shore isn't like the beach where it gradually goes from the sand to the water. Its like a tiny cliff and your in. Weather you like it or not! But lately for some unknown reason, the bottom of the lake has been pure mush. It feels a little bit like your walking around in baby food. You think your just going to wade slowly in the water but then when you step in all of a sudden your sunk in weird mud all the way up to your knees. And let me tell you, is a struggle to pull your legs out of that ish once your in. So when all of us girls go out to the raft it usually consists of lots of screaming and EW's followed by the struggle of trying to get onto the raft. It actually is kinda hard, I'm not gonna lie. All but one of my cousins on that side are older than me and recently this year all of them got married. So we inherited a new cousin named Angie. We like her, she is very sweet. Angie is also pregnant! 3 months along now.So we had fun with that. Every excuse for Angie was " its okay, shes prego." All week whenever I talked to her I called her Angie and baby. They are very excited. It was nice to finally be with my two closest cousins again. We haven't all been together in about 5ish years. We were always close when we were little because it goes Frankie who is 20, me and I'm 19, and then Jessica and she's 18. So we were the three little trouble makers. Not alot has changed and we had a blast being together again! We also did some rock jumping this year. I finally jumped off the second biggest rock 3 times! I was pretty proud of myself I'm not gonna lie. I still haven't don't the biggest one, but one day.. Being in Idaho, I have had this whole new experience of being...white. I'm not the biggest fan, but I had gotten quite used to it before this trip. I forgot how my family teases me about being so dark in the summer and all the relentless jokes. Lets just say, I may have gotten a little darker this week. Sometimes I feel like my face is dirty like I need to wash it or something, but its just cuz I'm tan again! My skins back to normal, oh how I missed it. I can take all the mexican jokes, I'm used to it by now. My family... Well thats mostly the high points of our trip, besides my brat cousins scaring me with fish, craw dads, and sick nasty frogs. No, I will not touch your little critters thank you very much. Geez they just wouldn't let that go. Boys will be boys I suppose, no matter how old they are! Me and Heather decided that we want to keep going every year, even when our uncles pass
away or whatever happens, we will keep Lake Clementine a tradition! Love it =)

What A Week!!

This week has been SO amazing! I am so so sad its over, but it was awesome while it lasted. I had some pretty amazing roommates in the winter, and we were instantly best friends. We all went our separate ways in the Spring, but we never lost touch. My dear friend Jason Mackay who is a long time family friend joined us up at BYU-Idaho in the Winter semester. I had this amazing roomate Joyce Stinson and lets just say they were made for each other. I finally got Jason to ask her out on a date ( he was SO nervous) and it took off from there. A week later they were dating, a week after that Joyce had her first kiss, and about a month after that they were engaged to be married! We were all excited for them. So July 31st was the date! All my old roomies decided to come down here for the wedding since it was held in the L.A Temple. Lets just say I was a little stoked everyone was coming here!! I threw Joyce a bridal shower on Wednesday and it went so well. She was just so happy and lots of family and friends came! I would have to say that our brown and blue cupcakes were pretty dang cute since those were her colors. It went very well. Anything for our little Joyce =) Then the week began! First me and Whitney went to 6 Flags with some friends from here. I've never even been there before! It was an experience let me tell ya. I was SO freaking hot there and not to mention we got soaked on this stupid little water ride. So it was pretttty uncomfortable the whole day. But it was still an experience. I totally blacked out on the Goliath roller coaster, which has never happened to me before!! fun? I guess you could say that. The next day all of our roommates went to Huntington Beach!!! The U.S Open was going on so it was fun because there was alot of people there and lots of fun booths to look at. We all god these super cute friendship bracelets. I know it's a little corny but we secretly love them ! We made a pact that we cant take them off until we get married! It might be a while... haha Then that night we had a little bachelorette party for Joyce! All seven of us went to a hotel in a one room honeymoon suite! What an experience. Two beds.... seven girls. All five of us roommates decided to all sleep in the king size bed together. Here's the thing... the only way all 5 of us would fit is if we all spooned the same way. So thats exactly what we did. It's probably safe to say that it was the most uncomfortable night ever. When I woke up, we couldn't even find Katherine anymore... she was on the floor. We got up at 5 a.m. to get Joyce ready for her big day. She looked absolutely beautiful. The reception was a blast, and i got the chance to sing for the happy new married couple. It was such an honor to be able to do that for them. After that everyone decided to desert me! So sad. So now I'm in Brea again and just enjoying the time I have here in wonderfull California.
