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...

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 - Your Favorite Song

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!

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

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.
