Girl's Camp

So It's Monday now and it's been exactly a week since I left for girl's camp. It was such an amazing experience. I myself am not mormon but the love and acceptance I see from these girls and women is so amazing. I felt so comfortable there and I learned that you can have fun without the things the world says you need to have fun. You just need friends who except you and your good to go. So I had an amazing time at camp and miss all my fourth years (Davas....Danger Divas........*blow out gunsmoke*...in a good way) So July I have to go to my mom's for the whole month and I'm not gonna survive. I just want to go to Warped Tour and a couple of movies and Laura's party.....idk if that will happen though........because my mom is being cheap and spending money on her dogs......but not me.....so I'm trying to get a job. (If you need ANYTHING done just call me and I'll do it). So yea this might be my last post for awhile. I really wanna go to San antonio and the montrose area this summer.....I might have to wait until august to do that though...:( So pray I'll make it....and I won't kill Michael.

The Jonas Brothers as Disney Princesses

Ok so my absolutely favorite Talk show It's On with Alexa Chung (MTV @ 11c) was talking about The Jonas Brothers and then started talking about how they're Disney Princesses. So I texted Facebook and put as my Facebook status something like "Nick jonas is a disney princess according to sean from 3oh!3 i love it's on with alexa chung". My friend Katie then commented on my status and said if she has Photoshop and knew how to use it she would make photos. I told her I would and it took a day for me to remember but I did and this is what turned up from them.

My three dreams...

Ok so you know how people have three dreams a night but only remember one? well today i was woken up three times, but before that I was dreaming so I remember the dreams. Sadly it's been too long so I don't remember the first but i do the other two.

Hercules vs. Moses ( Dream 2)
Ok so in this dream I was in a mini video game. The game was between Hercules and Moses and the object of both of them was to destroy the other's house. (hercules was a mountain and Moses was a pyramid) So they're going at it while I'm watching and I realize there's movement in the pyramid. So i go to take a look and it's my best friend Megan and her amazing family during Watchign tv in their kitchen during March Madness! This is the funniest thing I have ever experienced in life is watching her family.
Then my alarm woke me up to go shut off the water.

Choosing the best portable circus (Dream 3)
So in this dream I was one of the judges for the all famous Traveling circus on a trailer parade. The judging took place in the backyard of my old house in fairfield. My job was to find the number one circus for the end of it. I'm in the middle of judging when the next act includes a guy from Photo and Geo class. I start yelling "Trey! dude i haven't seen you in forever!" he does his act then comes over gives me a hug and walks over to my neighbors house to party with friends. Then I was woken up right as I walk over and ask his friend to give him my number. Idk if I ever got it.....:)

The start of a revolution

So i just got back from Utah last night. First week was spent in tremonton. Then we mosied on down to lehi. While in lehi i realized blogging was a new family sport. Being the teenager in the family i felt it was my responsibility to keep up to date with technology related aspects of life. Thus leading to my blog. :)

Now from my understanding You basically just write about your life in a tiny little paragraph. So here it goes.

My name is Courtney. I'm 15 years old. I have a HUMONGOUS family. (i will have a family tree posted later.) First there are my birthparents. I only know my birthmom Samara but obviously i'm gonna need a birth dad too. There the people who adopted me. Chris Eberhard and Jill Robinson. As you can tell by the difference in last names they are in fact divorced and remarried to other people. Chris married Maren Eberhard which opened up a new side of my family with the tag "Swope" Aunts and Uncles galore. Her brother AJ is one of the people who made me decide blogging was a good idea. So of course i didn't forget the all important Eberhard's. My dad's sister's of course and also my little cousins:). So my Dad's side is done. Now to my mom..... She just recently got married to a guy. Her family consists of her brothers.....and step brothers and sisters...... and two little brat cousins......and one pretty cool cousin. Then Michael Robinson. My stepdad His sisters are amazing along with my cousins. Like seriously amazing! Me and Michael though just don't click. And i'll leave it at that.
So that's my family tree kinda. XD

Now to my activities. I love singing. I've been in choir since i was 10. It's just kind of a way of relaxing. To let my vocal chords mesh with my soft pallette and let loose. But it seriously is soooo much fun. My middle school choir teacher is leaving the school though and going on a mission trip to hungary. (slaughtersinhungary.com please support). But she introduced me too music and Mrs. Douglas (the magnificent mrs. douglas) shined up my choir's talent into perfection. (myspace.com/cyranchchoir).

I also love Photography! Especially pictures of nature Because being out there with all the beauty of nature is amazing but finding beauty inside beauty is outstanding and catching it on camera is all the better.

Wow so this blogging stuff went by faster than i thought and i wrote more than i thought i would so haha fun stuff.
