Snow! And then, not snow....

Well, the strangest thing happened! Yesterday, we got snow! (But that wasn't what was weird)
So there were slight flurries, and I knew that it wouldn't be enough to play in for sure and all.
But it was the first snow of the year! First snow of 2009! Awesomeness, yeah? Anyways, it was snowing and everything, and then the sun comes out! You'd think that the snow would dissipate and all, but it fell down harder! More snow! It looked so magical with the sun out and little crystal sparklies drifting to the ground! It kept going on like that for about an hour.
So why didn't GoMC take a picature?
1. She was lazy and freezing! (Well, that's two reasons, huh?)
2. She didn't know where the camera was!

Oh, well. Too bad!
So yesterday was so COLD, but today is so WARM! It really went from a 32F to a 70F, and I am LOVING it!

Anyways, has anyone gone to Winter Jam? It was one of the highlights for me of 2008, and I'm going to try to go again! So last year I went with a church group with my BFF and her youth group. It was honestly a blast! The music was amazing! I actually got to see PureNRG in person! But I didn't go up and say "hi" because I didn't exactly know who they were and everything. (Now I do!!!)
So the funny thing was that I said, "You know what would be awesome? If Tobymac came!"
And this year? HE IS GONNA BE THERE! *squeals*
Most of ya'll know that my favorite artists of all time are Tobymac, Barlowgirl, and Steven Curtis Chapman.
And I've seen one in concert already! I will be SOOOOO happy if I get to go!
The best thing of all? It's like only 10 dollars!!!

This is what I got in an email.

What else is going on in my life?

Well, I submitted the application for the school I'm hoping to go to next year. Please pray that I get selected for an interview! I am sort of nervous!

Annnnnd my story! My book is 109,000 words long, and it's starting to build towards the climax, the final conflict. Cool, huh? I have a lot more to write, though, and then I have to edit and try to find a publisher. Daunting, yes, but I hope to take it one baby step at a time!

Blog spotlight for the month!

This will be a new addition to my blog every month! I will be talking about blogs that I have found an liked. This month's spotlight shines on "'Tween You And Me"! It's a blog run by Mrs. Nancy Rue, the author of the Lily series, the Sophie series, and the Lucy novels! She is an amazing writer who really gets down on the level of middle school girls. I remember rushing home from the library every Saturday with an armful of her books! Even now, my sister and I love reading her books! So check it out! *grins*

My plans for the rest of the month include doing two new book reviews, so be on the lookout for new stuff!

God Bless,

I went to Winter Jam last year. It was really cool!

Awwwww...they aren't coming near me, not even a state close to me.
:( O well. Looks like they are mostly staying on the eastern half of the U.S.

never heard of that before!

I already went to Winter Jam. It was great!

Where do you live (you don't have to answer if it's "personal info" :) We've had two flurries! That's like that most ever! I live on the GA and TN state lines.

Oh, my! It's coming to my town. *big eyes*
I might be able to make it, but it'll probably be a 'no'.
