Simply Saturday

Hello, all! Does anyone else love Saturdays as much as I do? I love Saturdays with so much love, you guys!

Well, at least the Saturdays that I don't have to work. But you know, even those Saturdays that I do have to work, are not too bad. It's still the weekend and for some reason, weekends are just awesome. 

Today was a lovely Saturday. I cleaned everything while listening to music and singing rather vigorously. I love that 'everything is clean' feeling. It's awesome. I love the smell of lemon-y wood polish and vanilla candles. It makes the house seem so fresh.

I watched 'The Magic of Ordinary Days' (For the first time!) while I painted my nails.

That is such an adorable movie! If you haven't seen it, you really must. It gives you the warm-fuzzies. ;)

It's one of the best movies I've watched in a long time. The story was just so good! Not to mention how adorable the clothes were. I think the 1940's had some of the cutest clothes.

Here. Le Trailer.

Then there was more music, getting dinner going, making cookies and even more music. *Sigh* Pretty lovely, no?

There's nothing like puttering around the house all day, warbling away at the top of your voice anything from;

"The Phaaaaaaan-tom of the Op-er-ah is there! 
Inside your miiiind!" 
"I could have DAAAANCED all niiiight, 
I could have daaaanced aaaaall niiiight!," 

"Ooooo-ooo, Remember when it the darkness I remain.
Running down. Running down. RUNNING DOOOOOOOOOOWN!"

I sometimes feel bad for my neighbors. I honestly wonder just how much noise from my house can be heard by other people. But I'm glad I don't know. *Grin*

Anyway, I thought I'd go ahead and show some of the doodles I've done lately.
Doodles are fun. 

I like the cloths in this one...and nothing else really. :)

This one is my favorite. 

Well, that's all from me. What's new with all you? 

I think I'm going to go grab my book, make some tea, and spend the rest of my evening reading. Seems like a good plan.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.
God Bless!

Nothin' to say...

I am going through a blogging slump. I keep opening my blog, staring at the screen, sighing and closing my blog. It's frustrating, you guys! It makes me feel like...


And then I'm just like:

But anyway. I got a hat! That's fun news, right? It's very cool, awesome hat. 

It was a lucky find and a second hand store. It's so Indiana Jones!

Well, that's it for now.

Sort of Saturday Style~

Wake up, wake up, the sun cannot wait for long
Reach out, reach out before it fades away
You will find the warmth when you surrender
Smile into the fear and let it play

You wanna run away, run away
And you say that it can't be so
You wanna look away, look away
But you stay 'cause it's all so close
When you stand up and hold out your hand
In the face what I don't understand
My reason to be brave

Hold on, hold on so strong, times just carries on
All that you thought was wrong is pure again
You can't hide forever from the fire
Look into the storm and feel the rain

You wanna run away, run away
And you say that it can't be so
You wanna look away, look away
But you stay 'cause it's all so close
When you stand up and hold out your hand
In the face what I don't understand
My reason to be brave

Sometimes you just need to go out to the meadow with a camera and a notebook and just enjoy the day. 

I figured now was a good time to snap some 'Saturday Style' pictures...and yes, I know it's Sunday.

Even though Autumn hasn't quite descended where I live, I'm wanted to wear autumn-y colors. 

My lovely nylon flowers. 

It's awesome having a MP3 player that has speakers. I take it everywhere. It's wonderful sitting in the meadow listening to "I want crazy." *Nods*

And does anyone else love gummies?

Thank you, Treskie, for taking pictures for me! You're a pal. ;)

Ah...tomorrow starts yet another week. Sometimes I'd really like to be able to just tap on the breaks and slow life down a little bit. I can't believe it's already halfway through September! *Eyes September suspiciously.* Sneaky little month, isn't it?

This song has been going round and round in my head lately. Nobody puts it quite like Josh Groban does. It's so perfect for me right now. Sometimes you do just need a reason to be brave.


Good night and God Bless!

The Reunion.

So...the great silence on the internet. I apologize about that. I meant to slip on and post a couple time last week, but honestly, I was having way too much fun!

We had the most epic family reunion ever!

Most of us...watching a movie.

A couple years ago, all of us kids decided that for our parents 35th anniversary we were going to through a surprise family reunion for them.

Boy were they surprised! *Grin*

Two of my sisters are married and settled out in the Midwest, so we only see them every two to three years. And we haven't all been together at home as one big family since Laura's wedding eight years ago.

So, this reunion was the reunion of AWESOMENESS!

There were so many honest-to-goodness perfect moments, which are pretty rare as you all know, and there were those moments where you just lean back and think, "wow...God has blessed us so much...."
And there were loads of "I have the cutest nieces and nephews ever" moments. *grin* I'm a bit prejudice.

We spent most of the visit just...visiting, really. :) It's so fun to just hang out, talk, tease, play with little kids, have drinks and snacks and talk and talk and talk!

We did some hiking, we spent a day at the beach, we BBQ'd as much as possible, and we even squeezed in a formal family picture session. I can not wait to get those pictures! 

The Hike was pretty cool. We invaded the trail and took over. :) 

My cool brother-in-laws. 

Quite honestly, you couldn't ask for better in-laws. 

(That guy is 6'8"...That's tall...aren't they adorable?)

That's how he looks at a normal counter. :)

And more adorableness.

I hope you aren't getting bored with all these pictures of people you don't know! lol. I promise I've really narrowed down pictures. We took so many...and they're all good. But I have restraint! *Ahem*...Just a few more, shall I?

What's a vacation without a s'more night?

Thank you to all of you patient people that actually scrolled through this whole post. You're awesome. :) It was such a wonderful week. My Mom said it felt like a miracle. *Happy Sigh* It's sad when such perfect things come to an end. But thank God for how perfect it was!

Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!

This song just seems perfect for this post. :) Plus we did a little dancing to it. Ahh...memories.


Anyhow. I have some blogging to catch up on, not to mention the blogs that I haven't kept up with for almost two weeks. *Cringe* Sorry, People!

But I'm back! Hurray for that.

God Bless
