Bonjour!

In the middle of SO MUCH HOMEWORK, ahhhh!!

How's everyone? I've been trying to keep up with BBMing Bri, Taylor, and Ana, but things have been so insane.

But . . . Whisper and I had the BEST practice session yesterday! Mr. Conner had us jump in the indoor arena. You guys know jumping is still scary for me, but it felt like Whisper knew and she took care of me. We made it around the course and didn't knock a rail. :D

I can't wait for you guys to get caught up on my life when you read INITIATION. Then I can REALLY spill about what's been going on. It's been so hard to keep stuff a secret because I don't want to give anything away. Jan 3 isn't far off! Plus, I think it'll be out maybe a week or two early. :)

Fill me in on how you're doing!

  3. Great to see you post again! We were getting worried. It's awesome that you're doing great with your riding, Lauren! But you know what you can really spill without giving away too much? If you're in the advanced class. I bet you so are though. And I HOPE it comes out early because in Chosen it did say INITIATION was coming out Oct 2011. Dying here!

    Do good for Union Briar Creek girls! Sasha will totally be proud of you! :) :) :) :)

  6. Hey Laur...
    Sounds like Canterwood is going great! Hope Whisper is doing well :)

    Sounds like you had a great lesson too! You'll only get better and you seem to really be improving and growing at Canterwood... it was a good decision and it seems like you belong there. Don't doubt that for a second. :)
    Love you and see you soon,
    Ana <3
    P.S. Just read an *AWESOME* book about a horse.... so sad - I bawled my eyes out at the end. Really amazing. Title is CHOSEN BY A HORSE by Susan Richards. Really sad, sweet, and amazing story. Put it on a holiday wish list, guys. Its excellent and the sweetest book. :)

  7. I know how you feel, Laur, it seems like there are 10 quizzes and tests every week for me! So excited for Christmas-I love advent calendars. Does anybody else have one? I wake up every morning and get a chocolate! Yum~ I can't wait to read Initiation! Glad that you're everything is good and Whisper is doing well.

  10. I haven't been able to post anything or do anything at all lately-- I have a really bad fever and strep throat. I was sleeping almost all of yesterday, and I almost passed out. So wish me luck. And good luck to you, L!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hey Lauren! Glad you're okay at CC. I can't wait until INITIATION either! I seriously hope it comes out earlier. Glad to hear about your jumping round. Good luck with riding! :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Hello Lauren! I saw the Initiation trailer and am now dying to read the book (however, I was slightly disappointed that Riley was Lauren's enemy-she looks just like my best friend)! If Initiation does come out early, you can be sure that I'm at Barnes&Noble, snatching it from the shelf. Have a great time a Canterwood Crest, and try not to get brhind on schoolwork! Although it must be hard for you.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hey Lur glad you had such a great lesson. I'm totaly swamped with homework to. I don't think I'll be able to finnish it by Christmas. School gets out on the 23 so redic, some of us have plans.I'm so excited for Intiation to come out I'm alredy couting down.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Omigod! I don't believe it! In the trailer, it says that Clare is Lauren's enemy, but (spoiler alert) in the first 8 chaps of the book Clare is really nice to lauren. Where is the turning point?? Need deets!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hey L!
    I am super glad to hear that things with Whisper have been going exceptionally well. And Aly and Bella (who is it that's sick?) I am so sorry to hear that you have a fever AND strep. I actually have a cold right now and it is kinda bad, so I am going to come in late to school. Anyways, I am wishing for a snow day just like anyone else, and hopefully we will get one very soon. And Ana, I have read that book and it um, er- I didn't, uh, cry at all. You know me, always the tough one (laughs nervously). :) I will text you both as soon as I get my phone back (I am grounded, ugh). Ttyl! -Bri

    ReplyDelete
  16. Aww, thanks for the concern, Bri!! <3 and it is me, Aly, who is sick. Ugh I have been out of school for 2 days now and I am soooooo bored!! Probably everyone else is in school so this is probably not going to get a reply anytime soon. *sigh*

    ReplyDelete
  17. @Aly and Bella
    Sorry ur sick... And bored. I'm not feeling to well either almost stayed home from school :(. Feel better!

  19. Hey Lauren!
    Glad to hear you had a great ride with Whisper and are doing great and Canterwood.
    I've been riding, too. This weekend I had a horse show with my favorite horse and we did great on the two jumping rounds!
    I can't wait to hear about Whipser and everything else in Initiation and good luck with your next ride!

  20. i have bbm and i wish i had a horse hows things with taylor

    ReplyDelete
  21. Well, Bri, you may be tough, but I am an *artiste* (hence the name) and am very dramatic (and, you know, a huge softie). All books make me cry - its either laughing to tears, sad tears, I-love-this-book-so-much tears, or bored to tears. The bored-to-tears books are usually the ones off of Yates' reading list (just saying). Chosen By A Horse was one of those sad-tears ones. And then there's the Canterwood Crest series, the rare I-love-this-book-so-much tears.

    So now that I've bored you to tears (get it???) with all my book discussion, lets talk about the first 8 chapters of Initiation.

    WARNING: SPOILER ALERT!!! READ THE CHAPS BEFORE YOU READ THIS!! the chapters can be found at: http://books.simonandschuster.com/Initiation/Jessica-Burkhart/Canterwood-Crest/9781442419483
    ***JUST CLICK THE "BROWSE INSIDE" BUTTON ON THE PAGE***

    So what did you guys think? I agree with the person who said that Clare was really nice.... but it seems as though she's got another side to her. I HATE Riley but she seems tooooo dramatic and competitive. there's got to be something behind that. You know, like a reason.
    So in the next chapter just *watch* Laur make the advanced team and watch Riley be like, "WHAT?!?!" If that actually happens, everyone know that I totally sniped that. :)
    Ok, so the thing with Khloe was a little weird, like you don't do that as your walking in to meet your roommate. I like her and she's super nice but that kind of ticked me off about her, like she just went ahead and gave my bestie a heart attack for no reason. *Still* suspicious about her, but then again I haven't seen Lauren in forever and am maybe just *maybe* a little jealous. It's the bestie blues.... and I'm not very familiar with it. :)
    Love you all and talk to you soon, Laur,
    AnaArtiste <3

    ReplyDelete
  22. And Bri, what exactly *was* it that you were grounded for????????
    *gives Bri The Eye*

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hey gurlies! It's time for me and my bestie Laurs to take over Canterwood! And Laur, I highly agree with you that they should read up on the deets in Initiation. It's time for my close up, lol! But be warned. Initiation is a book where the peril will end in scandal and secrets....
    *Humming to Secret by the Pierces* Lol, kidding Laur! Was I volumizing my gypsy-like dramatic effect much? You know how much I'd want to be a soap opera persona one day and that takes work! But still, you never know...
    -Khloe

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ana, I don't think you want to know what I was grounded for....... let's just say I got REALLY angry at my parents when they said that I was not allowed to go to the movies w/ you.
    Anyway, I totes agree-- we should keep an eye on Khloe. She is v dramatic (I can totes relate... I have *a friend* who is also VERY DRAMATIC *cough* Ana *cough*). But not in the same way. And she is friends with Clare... who apparently is going to have a "turning point" where she becomes bad..... I wonder if that has anything to do with being friends with Riley.
    Laur, hang in there. Don't let mean girls rattle you. And if things get too tough to handle, I will be at CCA in half a second to give them a piece of my mind, and I am CONFIDENT that Ana will join me.
    Almost the holidays...... I CAN NOT WAIT!!

  26. Lauren,
    Are you a real person or Jessica Burkhart blogging as Lauren Towers?
    Just wondering.
    -Destiny

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ana, Brielle, I guess you still won't relax until you know more about Lauren and her new *bestie* Khloe. (No offense to Khloe.) But I'm really excited for INITIATION to come out and I do hope it comes out earlier.

    Just a thought... the INITIATION trailer said that Clare was Lauren's ememy. And Khloe's best friend is Clare. So... just wondering, what's gonna happen with Khloe and Clare's friendship? And Riley... no comment. Don't know what to say.

    So, good luck with your riding and hope you get stronger and braver about jumping again, Lauren. BTW, there has been absolutely NO comments about Lexa. Sure, we'd only heard about her ONCE but is anyone else wondering about her?

    Oh yeah, HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE! It's almost Christmas and I wanted to ask if anyone else was already freaking out about it? :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh yeah, I was the one who posted the last comment but I totally remembered something else today. In the trailer, in Chapter 3, direct quote- "I looked at Khloe. Sincerity radiated off of her. Regret and empathy fulled her brown eyes." So, Ana, even if you do have the *bestie blues* which I highly doubt, Khloe was sorry to do that to your bestie. But, Lauren did hardly know Khloe and I guess Khloe thought it would be different to try her acting skills on Lauren.

    And Ana, I bet Lauren would say you're the bestest bestie she could ever have, not to mention the best artist in the whole school, at Yates, not including Brielle and *maybe* Khloe and Lexa? (No offense to Lauren's CC friends.

    After all Ana and Brielle, even after you guys were really *not cool* (no offense) about Lauren transfering to CC and what would happen to your popualarity status, you guys made up and Lauren's still (of course) your bestie, right? (But obviously not Hannah. No one knows about her, but she does sound really mean. Maybe, jealousy of Lauren?)

    Okay, too much convo about Ana and Brielle *laughs nervously* (umm, no offense, you guys!) Lauren, I've said this a hundred times too much but you are the best rider at CC. You will be and you probably are. Besides, who else can stand up to your jumping problem so quickly? No one I can think of. Go Lauren Towers! :) xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  29. OMG!!! Guys plz start posting again I luv reading all the posts!! That's what tides me over from Lauren's post that are very few!!

  30. @Amonyous above my post: You mean Lauren's friends or the rest of us? *Confused look*

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hey everyone! @AnaArtiste read the chapters and I totally agree, I HATE Riley. She seems waay too much like someone else in the Canterwood Crest series (*cough* Heather Fox *cough*) And anyway, I am really not sure about Clare. I mean, she seems nice, but I really don't know. Guess I'm gonna have to wait till January 3 to find out. Merry Christmas!
    ~egirl

    ReplyDelete
  32. @PostAboveMe: Actually, I kinda think Riley is more worse. Besides, Heather was nice, really, and she had a heart behind her cold past. I want to know more about Riley, and Clare, and Lexa. :) But it's almost Christmas, which is why you can't let mean girls ruin it! What's everyone doing? Merry Christmas CC!(And everyone else too. :)

  33. Anyone post is what i meant! HEARTS!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wow Bri. Anger issues much? Talk about dramatic. :) JK. Anyways the movie was suuuuuuuuuuuuuuppppper good. You totally missed out. It was , like, THE best flick ever. :D

    Yeah, go ahead, cough my name and pretend its all good Bri. You're not so perfect either... allow me to say two words: "possessive" and "territorial". :) But I love you either way.

    Anyways. Who loved the chapters as much as I did!!! Not Bri, since SHE was grounded. How sad. :)

    Aw, I love joking around (read: torturing) my besties. So fun.

    See you guys later. Love you all!
    Ana

    And to the person who said we were not cool about the Hannah thing... well, I have something to say to you: you're right. We were totes stupid and Hannah is THE biggest loser. She's stuck up and a suck up.

    And sorry, but you can NEVER (*never*) have too much condo about me. Not possible, sorry.

    I'll post later. GTG

  35. ARG. That word "condo" was meant to be convo. As in "conversation". Yeah.

    PS I guess you're right, I am a teeeeeensy weeny dramatic.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yeah.... a teensy weeny dramatic...... sure.......
    Anyway, !! Christmas is just around the corner and I have so much to do!! I have to get L's present, Ana's present (no more nagging, Ana.... you'll see what it is on Christmas *for the millionth time......*), and of course presents for relatives and stuff. But other than that, I <3 Christmas and can NOT believe that such an amazing holiday could be turned bad by commercialism and things like that. UGH! Makes me MAD! (wow, maybe I DO have anger issues.... yeah right!) But really......
    Who agrees?

    ReplyDelete
  38. And don't taunt me about how I couldn't see the movie Ana!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. @AnaArtiste & @BrielleisaBeauty: LOL, you guys. And, Ana, with everything you have commented on, I guess I do have to agree with you, Brielle. Ana is a *bit* dramatic but she seems really fun! *as in a teensy bit* You guys are awesome, LOL.

    So, Lauren, you probably post once like month now, but Merry Early Christmas! It would be awesome to spend Christmas both back home at Connecticut with your BFF's AND at CC OR even at your new best friend's home, right? :)

    Merry Christmas, Ana and Brielle, ooh, and Lauren's family too! And everyone else too who reads Lauren's blog and Jessica's and the CC series! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh, I posted the earlier comment too. So anyways:

    @AnaArtiste: I LOVED the first chapters. It was soo cool! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!

    And did you guys see the contest on Jessica Burkhart's blog? Enter to win! :) Merry Christmas, you guys. <3

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hey Lauren!!! Hang in there you're great and don't let anyone else tell you otherwise!!:D How is Whisper doing? Ana you are VERY entertaining! So are you Brielle. I agree with pretty much (read: notice i said pretty much agree) everyone else, I DON'T like Riley at all, Khole is ok i believe she is being honestly nice and she likes Lauren, and Clare is suspicious. Merry Christmas everyone! :D :D

  42. i already pre-ordered Initation!! i'm psyched about reading it!! if jessica burkhart wrote it, it will totally rule!! can't wait for more updates, laur-bell!!!

  44. Hey Laur!! Hang in there, I hope everythings going well w/ Whisper! UGH I officially despise Riley. SNOB ALERT! Gosh, even my thoroughbred-cross, Toby doesn't seem to like her! And he likes EVERYBODY!!!

    Ana, Bri, HANG IN THERE!! Laruabelle will be home for the holidays soon enough, and then you can rant about how much you miss her and how annoying it is that you can see her, and so on and so forth :D

    I just got back from a competition, dressage and jumping...lets just say...TOBY AND I ROCKED IT!!!! Blue ribbons everywhere!!! Not to brag, but it was so much fun! I almost forgot how fun showing was!!!!

    I already pre-ordered Initiation and I can't wait for it to arrive!!!!

  46. I took a sneak peek on chapter 3 on simonandschuster.com! Khole didn't care which side of the room she got. She was only testing her Drama skills because she's on Canterwood's Drama club, and she didn't think she was that good, so she was testing them on Lauren!

    ReplyDelete
  47. IKR? But Lauren was really shaken up. BTW, there's only A WEEK (!!!) before INITIATION comes out! *screams* I'm soo excited!!! :) :) :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. ¿Por qué están todos tan preocupados por Lauren? Ella puede cuidar de sí misma.

    ReplyDelete
  49. That's because everyone's too nice to care for her. Team Canterwood all the way. Besides, don't you think Lauren is really nice?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Totally! Who said that she wasn't? Oh, never mind, I just looked at the comment in spanish. Yeah, Lauren is so nice! Or at least, as far as I'm concerned...... well, sasha was pretty nice, so Lauren will prob turn out the same way. :)

    And btw, it would be very fascinating for there to be a book told from the point of view of the bad guy. Don't you think?

    ReplyDelete
  51. @Anonymous (the one that posted above the comment that I posted a second ago)

    In spanish, your comment is: Eso es porque todo el mundo es demasiado bonito para cuidar de ella. Canterwood equipo hasta el final. Además, ¿no cree usted que Lauren es muy simpaticas?

    Your welcome. :) Hehehe

    ReplyDelete
  52. Lauren will probably be EVEN nicer. Did you read her reaction about Khloe's sisters??? :) :) Sooo nice!!! And will Riley, she was saying Riley was... 'okay'. Very nice!

  53. Lo siento, estaba enojado con algo más. Lauren realmente parece ser una buena persona, y de nuevo lo siento.

    ReplyDelete
  54. BRIBRIBRI you evil devil!!!! I gave you *hints* and you wouldn't even give me ONE! Sorry I couldn't comment sooner, you guys, had family over and couldn't get on.

    But BRI, oh we have much to discuss. First, you're like @AnaArtiste, I got your gift!! over Chatter, and when I ask what it is you won't even *reply*. Then I ask you to give me a hint at school and you make that "lips are sealed" thing and *throw away the key* (how wrong is that???). Then you say that I'm NAGGING over blog comment? Oh and *then*, THEN, you have the nerve to *****drop the gift in my MAILBOX**** and "accidentally" tip the flag up so the MAIL LADY takes it to the post office. Luckily it was a good gift and we got it back. BUT STILL!

    Lets recap what I DID for YOUR gift. Yes. We shall. I spent all my allowance getting the BEST GIFT IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD EVER IN HISTORY (LIKE RUDOLPH!) EVEREVEREVER and hand wrapped the gift myself. For those of you who don't know me, I am an ARTISTE and a hand wrapped gift of my making should usually be in a museum somewhere its that good. Just saying. I then proceeded to give you ittybitty hints about what you got and you obviously took joy in knowing what your gift was about , not after refusing to tell me ANYTHING ABOUT MINE. I then hand-delivered your gift and watched tears well up in your deep brown eyes, as you reveled in the beauty of not only the wrapping paper but the wondrous, marvelous gift I so carefully picked out for you. And you had the nerve to drop mine in the mailbox.

    Sad Bri. So sad.

    Merry Christmas to all of you who DIDN'T ruin it!

    And to Bri: Ba humbug. Hmph.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Ana:
    Excuse me?! You weren't home, and I was on my way out of the COUNTRY, so what did you want me to do- leave the gift on your doorstep for it to get destroyed in the rain? Dramatic much! You are making this into SUCH a big deal, and it really doesn't have to be this bad. Yes, yours was wrapped well-but I'm not an "artiste". You know that. What a scrooge.

    (Don't tell Ana, but maybe I DO have anger issues.... wow. 2 friends.... one is too dramatic, and one has anger issues..... heheeh)

  58. @BrielleisaBeauty:
    I just reread my comment....I am deeply sorry Bri. Um...yeah. You're kinda right. I will hold back my dramatic side until it is needed (i.e., a situation with Riley or Clare). :)

    But the gift I gave you *was* pretty awesome. Just saying.

    You very welcome! Yay for pennies ;P

    I finished Initiation in ONE DAY. Teehee, I pretended to be asleep while I ACTUALLY pulled out a flashlight and kept reading till three in the morning Thank goodness I didn't have to go to school (High School Testing the next day)!!!

    OMG IT'S BRELLEISA AND ANA, PICTURES!!!
    *Total Paparazzi mode*
    *FLASHING LIGHTS, TONS OF PRESS*

    Haha, luv you guys.

    Toby loves Initiation too! At least, I read it out loud to him yesterday when I was at the stable and grooming him, so I THINK he liked it, I mean he was hanging on every word I said!!! (Then again, he is MY HORSE so he always does that, doesn't that just feel good on your tongue if you say that? LOL ADD attack)

    Can't wait to hear from you guys again, and what does LST stand for? (Sorry, I'm dumb LOL)

  66. OMG I LOVED INITIATION!!! It was soo good! I cannot wait for POPULAR but I think it's kinda messed up cause we didn't even see the cover of CC #16 and we already get to see CC #17: JEALOUSY...

    Anywho, I <3 the cliffhanger at the end of INITIATION. So. Good!

    @NorthernCasade:

    LOL LST stands for Lauren Search Team. So far, it's been pretty useful... but I think we may have to restart it.

    @BrielleisaBeauty & @AnaArtiste:

    I'm sure the paparazzi will last as soon as POPULAR is closing in during June. Can't watch for it!!!

    And for those who HAVE NOT seen the new cover reveal: ITS SO NICE! And Whisper is SO GORGEOUS! I have to say, there's a new character in the Canterwood Crest series and I think she comes in during CC #15 COMEBACK. (!!!)

  71. OMG!!!!!!! I finished Initiation within a period of 4 hours!!! My previous record has been broken!!! Btw, this is my first time bloggin on this website. I used to ride horses. My horses name was Velvet. He was a bay welsh pony. I've stopped riding because of competition, but I still have a strong love for horses. Now I'm a competitive dancer. Enough talk about me, and on to good old LT!! I totes idol u Lauren and hope to be like you someday!!!!!! UR AWESOME! I know u and Whisper will build up even stronger skills at Canterwood and I look forward to seeing u guys progress in the following books. I just looked at the new covers for the upcoming books today. So rad. Riley=bleh. I don't like her. AT. ALL. I liked Heather a lot, but Riley, in a way, is a little different. Idk how to explain it but whatevs. I loooooooove Khloe she seems so awesome and down to earth!!!!!! Clare.........well..........idk. Lexa is nice but Laur and Khlo are my fave people so far! Peace out peoples!!! :D!!

  84. Okay, this is just... sad. I mean, Lauren seems super sweet and super awesome, but REALLY? It's been 2 months. 2 MONTHS! Jessica Burkhart might have forgotten about Lauren's blog, but we sure haven't. And I'm pretty sure this blog post has even more comments than the other ones.

    No offense to Jessica Burkhart or Lauren, but we really want to see Lauren post again. I mean, at least she's been on her Twitter more often. :(

    LOVE,
    ANONYMOUS

  90. Hey Guys, sorry I haven't been on in a while, HW, schooling, Toby pitched a shoe and I had to call the farrier because my instructor forgot...

    Yeah. WHERE IS LAUREN?!?!?? I mean, it's February, for the love of horses! WHERE IS SHE?!?!
    Btw, I wanna be an LST!!!! PLEASE! NC and Toby to the rescue!

    LAUREN!!! WE MISS YOU!!!

    (Btw, Where can I get some good quality, but fun looking blankets? Toby needs a new one, but all the sites and or shops I've looked at don't have really great ones for weather like where I am now, warm in the afternoon but chilly and freezing at night. HELP!)

    -NC and Toby, well, he's at the barn, but he sends i-nuzzles! XD

    ReplyDelete
  94. Okay calm down everyone. Seriously. We all love LT but seriously. Calm down.

    LST was made by a well-being Lauren-loving person and but really, that's pretty much all you can do.

    Unless you comment more and more on this blog post (I mean, we reached almost 100 already!), comment on Jessica Burkhart's blog posts, email Jessica Burkhart, comment on Jessica Burkhart & Lauren's Twitter, comment on Jessica Burkhart's Facebook, and whatever account Jessica has too, I'm sure she'll post again. For the sake of Team Canterwood.

  95. Hey! I just finished Initiation and I L-O-V-E-D it!!! Riley isn't so bad at the end, even though she is seriously awful for the rest of it. I'm not sure about Clare, because she is not in it very much. <3 Lexa and Khlo so so much!!! And Lauren, I don't know how she does it. Wow- she is so organized. And a boy magnet. haha...
