1. Go to a midnight showing. DONE well... almost done! :D I'm going to go see the last Harry Potter :D

2. See Muse in concert

3. See Radiohead in concert

4. Go to Mexico.

5. Plan my little sisters weddings when they get married. :D I really do think that's what I was totally meant to do... Be a wedding planner. So I want to do my sisters!

6. Take dancing lessons

And yeah, that's all I can think of. :P I'm sure I'll think of more after I post this though...

Day 28

Day 28 - A Song That Makes You Feel Guilty

Well.... I think this question is just weird. I don't know of any songs that make me feel guilty and if I did I wouldn't listen to it. No one likes feeling guilty. :P

Day 27 - A Song That You Wish You Could Play

As I said earlier, voice counts as an instrument, so... I would LOVE to be able to sing this this song :D

Day 26

Day 26 - A Song That You Can Play on an Instrument

I can play this song on the piano and sing it, and voice is sort of an instrument so I guess that's two. :)

Isn't it lovely though? This is another one of those songs that just really means a lot to me. I heard it a long time ago on another blog and I listened to it over and over.

Day 13

Day 13 - A Song That is a Guilty Pleasure

Well actually I have several guilty pleasure songs.... :P Which seems wrong because I try to have a high standard to the quality of my music.

One guilty pleasure music are the High School Musical soundtracks... :P :D They're just so sappy sweet! And I really do love that mushy stuff.

Day 12

Day 12 - A Song From a Band You Hate

Well... last night it was 1 o'clock in the morning. I was sitting at the table with my coffee at my elbow and Irene's ear buds in listening to Radiohead to drown out the terrible noise of the movie the girls were watching...

Camp Rock with the Jonas Brothers.


Unfortunately they were the kind of ear buds that really hurt my ears so I could only use them for a little while. So after a while I had to take them out. And then... terrible day... I heard the Jonas Brothers sing for the first time.

I don't know what the song was called so I can't really put it up, not that I would want to anyways. :P They are not allowed on my blog.

So, a song from my least favorite band is a song that the Jonas Brothers play in the movie Camp Rock. :P

Some more pictures :)

Day 11

Day 11 - A Song From My Favorite Band

My favorite bands kind of go back and forth but I always come back to Radiohead. The feeling and emotion that they put into their music just blows me away.

Day 10

Day 10 - A Song That Makes You Fall Asleep

I couldn't find this song on youtube, but it was my favorite song to fall asleep too. :D It came off of the album by Michael Card and is the title song for the album.

I used to turn off the light right when they said turn out the light and then hop into bed as fast as I could. That was back when we lived in Lake Oswego and I had a room with a loft above it. I was so scared to sleep in that room. I just knew that a vampire was going to come leaping over the edge of that loft and attack me...

But this album always made me feel better. :) I always tried to fall asleep before the first song, the one that I posted, was over.

Day 5

Day 5 - A Song That Reminds You of Someone

I think I will do

The Bends by Radiohead

This song makes me think of Benny because it was one of the first albums he lent me and it was one of the songs that I started to really like first. :) There are many many more that make me think of him because 95% of my music tastes come from him. :D

and then

This song makes me think of my awesome friend Beka :D

Day 4

Day 4 - A Song That Makes You Sad

I suppose this one is fitting for today. The weather is bad. I've had a headache for to days. There's no choir. I don't have a job. I need a car. I am completely exhausted. AND I cut my thumb while chopping a carrot for dinner. :P

This is a beautiful song but it makes me very sad...

This is another hard one. :P There are a lot of songs that make me happy :D

Day 2

Day 2 - Your Least Favorite Song

This is sooo much easier.... :P I really hate that song by Miley Cyrus, Climb because whenever I hear it it goes through my head all day long and I don't like Before He Cheats by Carrie Underwood. Really? You carve your name into his leather seats? Now he'll just call the police and tell them that his crazy ex wrecked his car....

But my least favorite song is that Lady Ga Ga song Poker Face...... Why? Just why? I do not understand why that woman is so famous. Because she is one of the scariest things to walk the earth?

I am not going to post the video of it here because first of all I am not going to go looking for it on Youtube, second, I would never want to be responsible for someone else listening to it, and thirdly, I do NOT want that on my blog. :P

Day 1

Here's another 30 day challenge! :D It's about music though. This will be fun! :D

Day 1 - Your Favorite Song

Monday, May 23, 2011

Pink Cherry Blossoms :D

This took a little while to do... :P

I took bunches of the cherry blossoms and then individually removed each flower and then made a carpet of them.


First freshly grown beans made into that steaming hot cup of coffee with a dollop of milk.

Then a scoop of Tillamook french vanilla ice cream. The coffee needs to be really hot enough so that the ice cream starts to melt leaving a frothy creamy top on the coffee.

Then finish off with just a bit of Raspberry syrup.

It's the perfect cup of coffee....

Family Camp...

Family Camp.

Misty air that makes my hair curl.

Juice Squeezes.

Strawberry creme savers.

Running through dewy grass in flip flops.

Smoky fires.

Sand everywhere.

Bad coffee.

Cheering loudly in the basketball tournament.

Hot Chocolate.

The whir of the air hockey game.

Creaking Beds.


Board games at night.

Big eats.

The smell of the chapel.


Spending an entire week with your friends playing miniature golf, board games, and volley ball. Going for walks on the beach and around the lake. Kayaking and canoeing. Dancing, singing, building sandcastles, staying up late and basically having the time of your life.

I'm really hoping we can make it this year. :P

A Little of Everything

Looking back I realized I missed a couple days... *gasp* ! Oh well, I was getting a little tired of it anyways. :P How many pictures can you take of flowers anyways? And my camera doesn't work too well for people and things....

So what to post about now? I could post about clothes, or movie reviews, or what's been happening with me lately... I could be lazy and just post a quiz or a music video. I seem to go through phases with my blog content. :P

Maybe I'll do all of that in one post... Ha! Now there's an idea!

Gothic Marie Antoinette Gown-Made to Measure (Your Size)

Soft Handmade Leather Lace up Ballet Moccasins Made to Order in 6 Different Color Choices

White Wedding Wool-felt coat, Free shipping international

Bohemian Like You Long  Dress

These pictures of from my hearted items on Etsy. :)

Now, for a movie... Let's see, I recently watched Knight and Day with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. I loved it! The perfect mixture of action, romance, and comedy. :D

He may be a nut case in real life but he's a pretty great actor. :)

I can't find a video of it but my favorite part is where Tom Cruise walks through gun fire to kiss her. :D So. Awesome.

I totally recommend this movie!

Next what's been going on with me... Not much really :P As usual.

Choir on Wednesdays, though only for a few more weeks. Etsy stuff. Photography. I've been drawing a lot of anime lately.

Saturday though is a day that I've been looking forward to for a very very very long time. :D Graduation!!! Some of my very bestest friends are graduating this year. :)

Music video is... Hm....

I think I'll do two. :D

And now to finish off the night a quiz...

You Are a Heart Cut Stone
Sometimes it seems like you are unemotional, but you try to have your emotions work for you instead of against you.
You're peaceful and tolerant - except when it comes to people who disagree with you.
For you, love is always unconventional and even a little freaky. The heart wants what it wants.
You tend to hold back in relationships, waiting for your partner to draw your deepest secrets out of you.

You Are Contemplative
You tend to formulate ideas and make decisions alone. Once you're done, you're ready to talk to others.
You are a quiet and peaceful person. You have deep inner strength.
You are sensitive and compassionate. So many things touch your heart.
You seek meaning and purpose in every part of your life. An empty life terrifies you.

You Are Winter
You are philosophical and idealistic. You aren't willing to compromise on what's important.
Innovative and clever, people look to you for new ideas and trends.
You are honest with everyone you meet. You speak your mind and share opinions freely.
You tend to hold back in relationships, waiting for your partner to draw your deepest secrets out of you.
