September 27, 2013
   Hi everybody! Today my mom told me that Felicity and I would be visiting Colonial Williamsburg on October 3rd. Felicity and I got really excited and we both felt like pretending we lived in the Colonial era. We were trying to do ballroom dancing, but kept stepping on each other's toes when Elizabeth came in.

"Will you please stop being so loud?!" she said exasperatedly, "I'm trying to study!"
"Sorry!" Felicity said apologetically, "we were just-"
She stopped talking and looked out the window. Then suddenly she gasped. Elizabeth, thinking it was an emergency ran over and looked out the window. Then she rolled her eyes as if it was some sort of joke and left. I finally looked out the window and what I saw made me groan. It was Felicity's mom. Felicity and I, still in our costumes ran and jumped on my bed for "safety" even though it made no difference.
Her mom came in and made her change into regular clothes. Then they left. I was so bored so I just thought about Virginia. I pictured the Autumn leaves perfectly orange. We don't really have perfectly orange and red leaves in Paris. But in Virginia it must be lovely. I'd seen pictures before of the trees and leaves.
Then I realized that Felicity and I would be needing passports. I hoped that Felicity already had one. I was practically asleep when my mom came in.
"Honey. Good news!" she said.
"What?" I asked eagerly.
"You're going to be visiting Florida as well as Virginia!" 
"Florida?" I shouted disbelievingly, " you mean Disneyland!"
"Yes!" answered my mom beaming.
"How can we afford that?" I asked.
"Grandma just called and gave us money for a rental car!" she said in voice that sounded as disbelieving as mine.
"Woah! Can we visit McKenna and Kit?" I asked thinking of my best friends.
"And their cousins Chrissa and Elizabeth!" She answered me happily.
"Yeah! Don't they have a blog like me?"
"Yes it is called The Saltys." she replied calmly.
I remeber visiting their blog. Here is a link:

September 26, 2013
   Hi everyone! Today my sister Elizabeth and I went shopping for Felicity's birthday. I wasn't too happy about my sister coming. All she ever shops for is clothes. Oh well! In life you can't always have everything. Try telling that to my sister! For Felicity's birthday shopping we went to my favorite store. All Star Girl's Boutique!

When we walked into the store Elizabeth looked as if her birthday had come early. She gasped and ran over to a skirt on rack.
"Look at this skirt Izzy!" she squealed, "It would look perfect with  my... everything!"
    "Elizabeth-" I began, but she interrupted.
    "Izzy it's not like it's going to take hours!" 
    With that she skipped off to the dressing rooms.
"Ta-da!" squealed Elizabeth. 
   "Uhhh it looks- nice." I stated politely. 
   "Izzy! You're so rude!" said Elizabeth angrily, "I can tell you think it's ugly!" 
    "I never said it was ugly!" I argued, but Elizabeth was giving me an I-think-you're-lying look so I stopped talking. 
   Then Elizabeth spotted a shirt and pink dress and piled them into the cart along with the skirt she was so attached to.
   I was forced to sit there the whole time as she greedily grabbed items in the makeup and hair section. Then she walked over to me holding the a purse that I personally didn't like.
   "Look Izzy!" Elizabeth said excitedly, "Isn't this perfect?" 
    "For Felicity?" I answered, "no way!" 
"Not Felicity! For me!" exclaimed Elizabeth.
"I thought we were shopping for Felicity!" I shouted angrily at her, "For once will you please shop for someone other than yourself!"
I picked up the purse an held it in her face for her to see.
"Do you seriously think that you need another purse?" I shouted at her angrily, "'cause you don't, you have fifty more at home that you can use!"
I'd never seen Elizabeth so angry. She opened her mouth to protest, but I wouldn't let her.
"You're so selfish! I can't believe you!" I yelled.
"You're the selfish one!" shouted Elizabeth.
I started to yell back, but I realized that everyone was staring at us. Elizabeth must have seen it too because she stalked away. I was walking through the aisle muttering to myself when I noticed an album lying open. I saw more albums around it and one particular book caught my eye. It was pink with a zebra print on it. Perfect for Felicity I thought to myself. I picked it up, but then I noticed Elizabeth walking towards me. 
"Hi." she mumbled, looking at her feet, "I'm sorry I shouted at you."
I felt as if this were unnecessary because I had really been the one who started shouting, but after all she had been kind of selfish. Actually we both were.
"I forgive you" I responded, " I'm sorry too we were both being selfish, I guess".
Then I showed her the album I'd found.
"Cool!" she responded, "I found something for Felicity too".
Then she held up a pamphlet with the words Computer Manual written across it. I laughed out loud.
" That's perfect!" I shouted,"but insulting to Felicity." We laughed. Together. And about the same joke.

   Hi! Sorry about the posting problem. Felicity crashed our computer by pressing the F8 button. She always seems to cause hubbubs when we hang out. Anyway, it was terrible! The screen went blank and we had to hire a mechanic to fix it! Felicity was crying and sobbing, " I'm so sorry!". Unfortunately when the mechanic fixed it didn't work properly because we had to re-download everything and I had to get a new email because Elizabeth (my sister) couldn't remember the password for me. To make matters worse Felicity "accidentally" dropped my camera in a lake so I couldn't take very many pictures on Elizabeth's camera. Her camera is full of self-portraits anyway! I can't finish this post completely because Felicity is coming over. Bye for now!
