So I'm up in Michigan (and I think most of the people that read this are aware of that, haha). It's been a lot of fun. I got in on Thursday evening. Friday everyone had to work, but my Grandpa came over. He was only going to stay a little bit, but then we started playing with my camera. He taught me a lot of useful stuff. I definitely feel like I know my camera a little better now. I might take it out today and try to get some snow pictures of down town and such. We'll see how the day pans out.
Saturday my family went to Traverse City to do some Christmas shopping. I had most of my Christmas shopping done, but it was really a fun time. We went to Kohls, Michaels (where I bought a few scrapbooking things), and the Mall. Sean was really funny because he kept banishing people from the vicinity to get their Christmas present. He cracks me up. At the mall I went into Victoria's Secret to get some new underwear (awkward, I know, but I had to say it in order to give the story context. And I really only wanted to go in and buy some regular, comfortable, cotton panties. You know, the 5 for 25 panties. Nothing scandalous, I swear). So I go in and there are a lot of people, which didn't bother me because there were a lot of people Christmas shopping. I'm just there looking at the underwear trying to find my size, and I look up and there is this super creepy guy staring at me. He looked like he hadn't showered in days, he had this really big walking stick, and crazy facial hair. I swear, he looked like a mountain man. He just stood there, staring. It was so weird. I had to leave and go back because he was so weird. Why does Victoria's Secret always have creepy dudes? I don't really understand it. I don't think I've ever gone into one without there being the token creepy dude.
Sunday we went to Church. I was able to do an announcement about Australia. They didn't do a special offering, but they let me hand out addressed envelopes and a letter after the service for people who wanted to send in some money. I only handed out four or five envelopes, but hopefully some money will come in. I still need about $1,000 dollars to get all the funds raised. I'm not *too* worried about it, but I'm hoping I'll be able to raise a little more support. After Church, I went to coffee with Brianna, my high school best friend. I won't lie, it was a bit awkward. But overall, it was a good time. We chatted and did some catching up, and it was fun. Plus, Brother's Coffee and Tea is just a fun place to go to. :)
Today Dad and Sean are at work and school, respectively. Mom and I are going to go out to Kohl's and Old Navy. I guess Old Navy is going out of business here and is selling crap for super cheap. I want to check it out and see what there is to see. We're also going to make some haystacks and home made peanut-butter cups. I am so excited for it! Other than that, I think it's just a really laid back day. I like those.
