Since i'm sorta bad at doing share-a-song sunday's on sunday...

Saturday, September 26, 2009


Saturday was the most dreariest, awful-est, weather ever. It was soo depressing. But i decided i would practice for the fair and make pumpkin white chocolate scones. They turned out well, but i think next time i'll add more white chocolate chips.:)

Anyway, dad came home on Friday night, so that was good to have him back. Yesterday (Sunday) we went to our good friend's ordination for becoming an assistant pastor and then a party thing at our church, so that was fun. Thankfully, today is a lot prettier weather. But it's sorta cold. :/

that's about all i have to say.

rain boots!:)

rainy day what i wore 9/18

Rain, rain... today is the first day it hasn't been raining in a couple of days. Yesterday, I wore this outfit. I LOVE rainboots. Actually, these are Caroline's rainboots... But she let me borrow them!:)

they are soo fun and cute! Target has a pretty good sale on them this week. Buy one get one half off. They are 24.99, but the second pair would be... about $12.50. So they aren't that cheap, but not THAt expensive.

I love these anchor boots. So cute and nautical! and houndstooth goes well with about anything! what about just a basic solid color?

All you need is a matching umbrella...:) have a great Saturday!

tuck everlasting & while you were sleeping

Wednesday nights= yay! :) Choir, dinner and youth group. I am happy!!:D

I have seen 2 movies this week. One called while you were sleepig. It's stars Sandra Bullock (she is one of my favorite actresses). It was made in the 90's. (which I don't like the 90's a bit, but I'll stop before I start ranting and raving). It was cute, but very unlikely in real life. here's a trailer-

Also, I finished tuck everlasting. Man it's sad.. but pretty good. The book is a lot better, which is not surprising. This preview is a little cheezy, but the movie was good.

It's about a family who drinks out of a spring and they live forever. Winnie Foster, daughter of the family who owns the woods of Treegap, runs away into the forest and meets a young boy name Jesse tuck. She sees him drinking out of a spring. She tries to get a drink, but they have to kidnap Winnie so she won't know the secret of the spring. They end up falling in love, and Winnie has the choice whether she should drink out of the spring and live forever, or be a regular person, who lives their life, not just a person who will never grow old or die. It is actually a very deep story. (read the book first! ) I saw this on youtube. (they have the full thing downloaded). I could start a whole discussion on this but I don't want to ruin the whole story for you!

I usually watch movies at night during weekdays, so you might have some more random movie reviews like this.:)

my dog ate it.

uhhmmm... tomorrow I have violin lessons. I have a new teacher. She let me borrow a violin shoulder pad and I dropped it without realizing. (I don't know how I didn't notice- don't ask) And my dog CHEWED it up. (I'm being serious when I say my dog ate it) And mine is broken. What a great first impression. Of course, we bought 2 new ones. And I am so made at myself! so there goes all my babysitting money.

the beach... was luverly! The weather was wonderful. Mid 70's to low 80's. Perfect. And the sky was blue... not a cloud in the sky. It was GREAT! and the waves were big! And the water wasn't too c0ld! I am sorta funny because I'd rather swim in the ocean then in a pool. I love the waves. I love the saltwater. But i don't love that I can't see the bottom and see if a shark is about to attack me. that is the part I do not like!
It basically looked like that. isn't it beautiful??!! I was born at the beach. I love it.
We even walked on the beach at night! it was fun... there was a live band on the pier and me and my sisters had fun dancing gooberly. There weren't very good shells though.:(
Anyways, i hope you had a good weekend, and happy monday! (if it could even be that!)

**Edit post** I am sorry if i was unclear on what i was talking about earlier. I wrote this post on 9/11.

Bad occasion today. 8 years ago, I remember that everything was going wrong, and it was just a horribe day. I remember my parents being upset, and I wasn't quite sure what had happened. Many people lost their lives trying to save people during this horribe event. I was at the world trade center 4 months before the crash. It was scary. I was scared. It was about midnight, and I was only about 5 years old. Thank God I wasn't there 4 months later! What a sad occasion.. God bless America!

Nonetheless, I had a fabulous day! First day of class, and now heading off to the beach for the weekend! Totally spontaneous, and totally awesome! And tomorrow is my dad's birthday! Happy Birthday Dad! I love you sooo much! I wish you could be home with us!

labor day weekend

I had a good, long weekend! My dad came home, so that great! On Saturday, i went to my first football game at wake forest. it was FUN! I didn't watch the actually game very much... instead I just stuffed my face with cotton candy! oooo yaaaa! On Friday, I went to the apple store. It is soo cool! They have computers everywhere, and iPods galore. You can mess with everything. It is ALWAYS crowded in there. We finally got the word document thingy downloaded on our new iMac. It is soo fun to write a paper now~! hehe. I made chocolate chip cookies. We are going to our church picnic tonight. Today is SUCh a depressing day. It seems like it has been on forever. Anyways, hope ur having a good week!

Apple pie & autumn

FALL!!! Not officially, but it is in the 60's today. I've been thinking about fall... And I got an urge to make a pie. My parents had picked up some fresh apples, so I made apple pie. It was splendid! And very easy too... (I didn't make my own crust, but I'll do that sometime!)

Easy Apple Pie
  • 1 (9 in) pie crust, buttered
  • 5-6 apples, but I did 7 because they were small
  • 1 1/2 sticks butter (3/4 cup)
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts. I used walnuts
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg

Peal and cut apples. Place apples in pie crust and sprinkle with cinnamon and 1 tbsp sugar. In a bowl, mix 1 cup sugar, flour & butter. Blend in un-beatend egg, pinch of salt, and nuts. Mix well and pour over apples. If desired, put a top crust on the pie. Bake at 350 degress for 45 minutes.

And, Bon Appetite! My FIRST pie, and it was very good if I do say so myself!:)

Thank you for your sweet comments in my last post! WHO"S EXCITED ABOUT FALL?!!!
