Spring Break

Spring Break was last week, and the weather was amazing!!  Boy do I miss the warm sunshine.  I got to sleep in a couple of days, so that was pretty nice.  I also got to spend some time with a friend from Virginia, and that was really fun.  I got to see my brother that I haven't seen in forever!  I went with him to a friend's party, where a guy spilled cheese grease all over my shirt.... exciting. Luckily, it came out :)  I had to prepare for my Senior Recital by doing a preview for my teacher and my advisor, so that was kind of stressful, and I'm glad that I didn't mess up too much.  By the way, my Senior Recital is April 1st at 6:00 p.m. so come!  I am singing 14 songs, by myself, and need all the support I can get :)

I really have the urge to go someplace warm right now.  How about St. George?  Moab maybe?  San Diego?  I actually won't be able to go anywhere until after Europe in June, because I don't have any time off of school.  I've decided that I really want to go camping this summer when I get home.  I haven't been camping in a while.  Basically I am just dreaming about warm times....

Come back spring!

My Little Pirates

So my brother in law had pirate costumes and my nieces dressed up and came in swinging swords and yelling "aargh!" So cute :) Here are some pictures!

I absolutely love Lizzie's face in this one. Classic "pirate".

The pirates are now scheming... "How are we going to get these adults to give us all the ice cream?"

And of course, who could say no to the cutest pirates ever?

Then on another day, Lizzie came to my house and brought Spencer's pirate hat from Disneyland. She wanted me to try it on. What a great day to be a pirate :)

Baby Mine

Last Monday I had the opportunity to sing "Baby Mine" with three other girls in Singers at our POP concert. It was so much fun! My friend Rachel arranged the song, and gave me the solo part. I was really excited, but right before I went up to sing I got really nervous... Luckily, we all sounded great, and received many compliments from everyone there. My dad was so funny. We got in the car and he said "Emily, you have such a beautiful voice! I mean, I knew you could sing, but that was beautiful!" Thanks Dad :) It's funny because he hears me practicing at home, but usually my practicing consists of weird warm-ups, and screeching "high" notes. So I don't think my dad knew that I know how to actually sing songs. I also have my Senior Recital on April 1st- a solo recital where I will be singing many songs from my years as a voice student at the U. Hopefully I can get all of my songs learned in time!! Maybe I will figure out a way to put Baby Mine on here.

I cannot WAIT until Spring Break!! One more week until freedom!
