Weekend Update (and Smiling)

Hello blog buddies! Another weekend has come and I think it’s time for…Weekend Update!

No, not this Weekend Update! Though I really love SNL, it's probably my favorite TV show and the Stefan character in this Weekend Update edition is so hilarious!
My weekend has been busy so far, but really amazing. Last night, I went to the U2 concert! OMG, so amazing! I was somewhat of a fan of U2 before last night but the concert just blew me away. It was incredible! The venue where the concert was was huge, it's actually the stadium where the Denver Broncos play. Me and my mom were way up in the nosebleed section, so it was hard to see, but the concert was amazing anyway. I also enjoyed The Fray, who opened for U2. Since it was still light out, I got a few pictures of the giant screen where they showed the bands.

On the screen is Isaac Slade, lead singer of The Fray
The whole stadium was lit up just with cell phones and camera flashes, how cool is that :)
Other parts of the concert experience were...well...exciting, I guess! It was annoying because people kept getting up and leaving their seats to get drinks and food and go to the bathroom so it was really distracting. Also, it was really cold out! The light rail trip back to our car was an adventure, too. It took us forever to make the 10 minute walk back to the light rail station because thousands of people were all trying to leave at once. And then we had to wait for several light rail trains because so many people were trying to get on. Once we actually got on, it was packed to the gills with people! Oh, did I mention I had to stand for about 15 minutes in the light rail after standing up for over 2 hours...and it was 12:30 am?! I was really exhausted so I was really happy when people got off so my mom and I could sit down. And we were going to the last stop, so the ride was at least half an hour and it made a lot of stops! I think the light rail system is so cool, but last night it was ridiculous!
You're welcome for riding RTD ;)
Anyways, I've been awarded with the Smile, You Are Beautiful Award by the lovely Jess and the beautiful Bryana. Ever since I first saw this award, I've wanted to do it, so thanks for tagging me, ladies!
Here are the rules.
1. Smile!
2. Write 3 things you like about your looks.
3. Write 3 things you appreciate about your personality.
4. Write about something you find beautiful in other people (looks, personality – whatever)
5. Award as many  other people as you like and let them know!

Okay, let's do this!

1) Smile :) 
I love this mini backpack I got a few years ago, it makes me smile (and it has smileys on it, too!)
2) 3 Things I Like About My Looks
·         My face. I used to hate it because I have a young-looking face so people would always think I was a lot younger than I really am, but now I think it looks cute (is that too conceited?!)
·         My feet. Yes, this seems weird, but I like that they're small (size 6) and narrow so I can always find shoes in my size. The only problem is when I buy high heels that have an ankle strap, I always have to make extra holes because the straps are too big otherwise and I can't keep the shoes on!
  • My arms. I used to hate them too and think they were "fat" and "huge" but now I know that it's muscle. People don't usually expect me to have biceps so when I show them, they're surprised! And I'm pretty good at arm-wrestling, too ;)

Even if it sounds vain, I like my face :)

3) 3 Things I Like About My Personality
·         I'm responsible. I always get my school work done on time, I try not to miss classes or appointments and I do chores at home without having to be asked a thousand times. I try to be as accountable as possible to people.
·         I'm a nice person. I don't try to get revenge on someone when they do something that upsets me. I'm polite and rarely say anything mean.
·         I'm funny. I like to joke around with people, be sarcastic and just laugh. I'm a little quiet at first but I'm totally comfortable cracking up and making funny comments with people I'm close with.
4) Something I Find Beautiful In Other People
I really hate it when people talk about other people behind their backs and it makes me feel awkward to be put in that position where somebody is saying something mean about somebody else to me, so I like people who are honest but nice and can share their problems openly without being mean.
5) Awarding People!
Since a lot of people have already been tagged, I'll tag just a few who I don't think have been tagged yet but if you have, sorry, and if you haven't, feel free to do this award!
I’ll leave you with one last pic of a yummy overnight oats combo I had yesterday: thick rolled oats mixed with water, organic apricot jelly and topped with a fresh apricot—yum! Enjoy the rest of your weekend, ladies!


  1. Yay, thanks for the award :). I can't wait to do it, but it may be a few days.

    Sounds like you had an awesome time at the concert... U2 and the Fray would be an awesome concert anyway! Sorry you had to stand so long though, that's the only downside to concerts, always gotta wear comfy shoes too!


  2. I'm glad you had an amazing time! Also, thank you for thinking of me for the award. I'll have to answer the fun questions hopefully by tomorrow ;)

    OMG, I love Stefan too! He cracks me up so much. I just love him; so hilarious.

    I had a great weekend as well!! Yay!!

  3. I love the Fray, I am glad you went.
    Thanks for the award, I need a smile and this should be fun.

  4. You're not vain at all to like your face- you have a beautiful face! By the way, your hair is gorgeous! People tell me I have a young looking face too (and always think I'm younger), but what is so wrong with having a young face anyway? When we're older and people think we're younger it will be nice. :-)
    I'm glad you had fun at the concert! <3

  5. I definitely know how you feel about saying you like your face! I like mine too, and I feel extremely conceited saying so. So I don't say it - I keep it to myself.
    And I agree with you, you do have a very nice face! :-)

    I'm glad you had a good time at the concert. I've never been to one, but I really want to. It sounds like it was really awesome! :-)

  6. I like your face! and it's great that you do too(: don't worry about being concieted :P
    I love U2, I'm glad you had a good time at the concert.
