My Crazy Weekend///Featuring Sporks, Golf Carts, and Medival Costumes.

Hi guys!

(I am so proud of that title, you guys have no idea :D)


So this weekend was really really crazy. That's pretty much why I wasn't posting this week, but I am here now!

So here's what was happening



Friday 

We had a Confirmation at our church on Saturday and my mom volunteered to make the cakes for the luncheon that was to follow. So we were delivering the cakes on Friday. My mom had to air conditioner on full speed on the way there, our car was like a freezer, I am so glad I brought a jacket :). We get the cakes in, and go up to the church to sit and pray. We got there an hour before Mass started. And I learned this lesson, never sit on a wooden pew for an hour, your body will hate you. Then after Mass, my mom signed me up to iron the communion rail cloths. That was not fun. Because I was feeling the affects of sitting on that pew. My lower back started spasming. I could barely walk. I was limping around on the altar, trying to iron. (also I really hate ironing)  So yeah, that was Friday)



Saturday


This day was a doozie. We got up super early (#sootired) to get to church to help prepare food for the luncheon. Food got prepared, we went upstairs to attend the Confirmation and Mass. It went really well! Then the luncheon. The ladies in charge of it had me and another girl carry around trays of drinks to people sitting down and that was not fun! We had to go give the bishop and the priests drinks at their table. Me and the girl I was with are super awkward so that was interesting. We stood a couple feet away from their table for five minutes, working up the courage to go over there. The rest of the luncheon passed without a hitch and soon it was over.

Before this next part, I need to give you guys a little backstory.

Do you guys remember that song I wrote about the guy I was trying to get over? The post is here, if you don't. When I wrote that, I hadn't seen him for two months so I was fine. We go to another church in the summer, because that church is close to my aunt's, who has the pool. In September, when we came back to our "rest of the year" church, I saw him again. My stupid heart probably did a cartwheel in my chest. And basically this weekend taught me that I am still head over heels for him. This boy makes me laugh like a little kid. His smile is so cute and he loves God so much. ......and I'm going to stop now :) (I'm going to stop typing this boy, Catherine and I came up with a nickname for him and from now on, I'm going to refer to him as Spork)

Backstory over.  hehe


Anyway, Spork's little brother was confirmed. So after the luncheon, they had a party at their house. We were invited, so we went. We pull in the driveway and the first thing that comes out of my brothers mouths was, "OOH LOOK SPORK'S SHIRTLESS!!!" What his family forgot to inform us was we were supposed to bring our swimsuits. (yes, the weather is still warm enough to swim) So yeah....I basically just slammed my head into the seat in front of me and groaned. It was a lot of fun!!
Later, they got out the golf carts. A group of my friends took one and the other one Spork was driving and another friend and me got in and rode with him. It was so much fun!!! We were avoiding a group of the other boys who kept jumping on and riding on the sides of the cart. Spork drove us in donuts, down hills and through a field. Eventually they cornered us and jumped on. Soon after that we were leaving and as my family was walking to the car, I went back to use the restroom. I started back towards the car and as I was nearing it SLAM! I hit something......or rather someone. Yep, Spork had walked with my dad to the car and I ran right into him. (it was dark, I couldn't see) Got home and fell into my bed.



Sunday

And today. 
We went to a Renaissance festival near our church. We had a lot of fun. We watched a joust, that was sooo cool!! My little brother tried throwing a spear at a target. He missed #youtried Then all three of my brother threw tomatoes at this guy is stocks but it was a fun game because as you were throwing, he insulted you. They ended up laughing so hard, they couldn't hit him. We were all in tears XD
We got halfway through the festival when it started to rain. So I was walking through the festival looking like a drenched cat, with a tiara!



We've been relaxing with pizza ever since we got home. 

Hope you like this post! I had a lot of fun this weekend. Enjoy!

Come on in...see the new header!!

*blog readers enter in to see a strange girl with their back to them working on putting up something* 

It needs to go a little wider....

no....

Too wide....There! Now it all fits! It's perfect....Lilah, it's re-

*she turns and sees her growing audience gaping at her* 

*hammer bangs onto the ground* 


OH HI EVERYONE! 

*hastily hides the guilty hammer* 

You're probably wondering who in the world I am. 
Please, take a seat and allow me to introduce myself. 

My name is Catherine Hawthorn, a.k.a Farm Lassie. I blog over at The Rebelling Muse. I know Lilah very well (we call each other sister). 

Several days ago, Lilah and I were talking about our respective blogs and she mentioned her desire to figure out how to make a header. She had been frustrated in trying to make one, so I offered to make her one. 

And tonight, I'm revealing it to her and you faithful readers! 

As with all of my headers, I try to use uncopyrighted images that convey some kind of significance or something that reveals something about the blog author. So, are you ready to learn about Lilah? Here we go! 

Parchment/Chant Music - As you all probably know, Lilah loves music. But did you know that she sang in our church choir for a few years? She loves polyphony, so I thought it apt to include an image of chant music. 

Book - Lilah is a bibilophile, through and through. She loves aesthetics too, which is why I chose this book. 

Night Sky - Lilah is a night owl. She's often up until 1 or 2 in the morning. This night sky was so pretty...

Theater - Lilah isn't involved with theater, but she loves it very much. Once she graduates from high school, I would not be surprised if she tried out for the stage! 

Chandelier - She hasn't had a chance to fangirl about this on the blogs (to which I'm actually surprised at), but Lilah is a HUGE Phantom of the Opera Phanatic. This picturesque chandelier is the perfect symbol! 

Broadway - Lilah loves Broadway!!! She's a big musical fan (as you probably have figured out by now..). It was SUPER difficult to find an uncopyrighted picture of Broadway movie posters (I had to crop this one from a big photo of Times Square, so please forgive the horrible quality, Lilah). 

 Beach - Lilah is a water girl, and the beach is one of her favorite places to be! 

White Cherry Blossom - Lilah (and I) are kindred spirits to Anne Shirley. After searching around aimlessly for something Anneish, I remembered that Anne loved the Snow Queen, which was a white cherry tree. She also mentions that she would "climb up in that white cherry tree to sleep" if Matthew never picked her up from Bright River. Hence, this little cluster of white cherry blossom was a perfect cap for this header.

Sea Green Background - Lilah told me that her favorite color was sea green. I managed to find this sea green wall that was just distressed enough that I thought she would like. 

New Favicon - For those that have Lilah on a blog list, I have changed her favicon to a red rose. Another tribute to the POTO fanfic, as well as Lilah's very romantic nature. 

*looks at clock*

Well, enough of my chatting! I need to go get Lilah...y'all enjoy the header! 

Scribblingly yours,

Natasha, Pierre, And The Great Comet of 1812//Musical Review

Hey guys!

So I decided to start something new. I'm going to review musicals for you guys so you know its ok to listen to them I have like six in my to listen list so yay!!

I like to listen to musicals while I do schoolwork, which is good and bad.

You're sitting there doing your English homework and suddenly, PULITZER AND HEARST, THEY THINK WE'RE NOTHIN!! and then, you're tap dancing on your dining room table.

(Not that I have ever done this *glances around quickly* hahaha help me )



So today,  I will be reviewing Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812. Initially, I wasn't going to listen to this. I mean, a musical based on a section of War and Peace???

But then..... they cast Josh Groban in it, so I couldn't not listen to it. I've been listening to it for the past week, soaking it in.


Likes:

  1. The music is soooooo pretty!!!!
  2. Josh Groban
  3. It's sang from the third person. It's like listening to a book
  4. Josh Groban 
  5. The Russian names are very funny
  6. Did I mention Josh Groban??


Dislikes:

  1. There is language in it
  2. Adultery too. 
  3. There is one part in the song, "The Opera" where there is a noise, which the only way I can describe it is, picture an autotuned screaming goat and you'll have the noise. 

My favorite song from this musical was a song called No One Else. It is the cutest love song ever and I just adkjajlksjdflj

If you don't want to go flipping through War and Peace for the story of this musical, I would suggest reading the Wikipedia page. That's what I did :)

I would give this musical a 3/5 stars. 

Hoped you liked the review!!

I'M BAAAAAAAAACK

(have been for a while but finally got around to this, sowwy)







                       YOU DON'T KNOW HOW LONG I'VE WAITED TO USE THIS GIF



I had a fun vacation week. I didn't really get to swim much because the pool's temperature was equal to Antarctica. I got to read by the pool a lot though, wrapped up in a big hoodie and a fire. (obviously i was not wrapped in the fire)

My aunts took me to a sip and paint, which is drinking while you paint. We just brought water and pop, though. It was fun! This is my painting




Then the next day, we went bowling! I am a natural bowler. *pats self on back* It was actually my first time bowling. Then we decided to go to lunch. So we get to restaurant and my aunt trips on the curb, breaking her elbow. 

So instead of lunch, we spent 4 hours at the hospital. Wheee 

Finally we got home and got Greek takeout for dinner. My aunt said she's never seen me eat so fast. I 
basically inhaled my gyro. So yeah, that day was fun. 

I actually got back a day early so my other two aunts could take my aunt home. I literally spent an hour on the computer, reading blog posts and commenting :)

I will definitely be posting more over these coming weeks, I have 3 tags to catch up on #procrastinationstation #choochoo

So I started my senior year this fall. 




I didn't think this year would come this fast. 


I'm ok with it so far. I mean, it's hard to imagine that next year I will be finished with school and have to get a job. Unfortunately due to our financial situation, I will not be able to go to collage. I guess, I was pretty much set on going to collage and based my life plan around that. Now.. it feels like all my hopes and dreams are in pieces and I don't quite know how to pick them up. I'm praying God will send me a sign or something to help me figure out what to do.


Oh! I have an announcement!

I will be on hiatus from September 3 to September 10. I am going on a little vacation and I will not have access to Blogger. I will still have access to email though, so if you miss my company that much, ;) send me an email. I like emails. :D

Tales From Drivers Ed///Days 2,3,4,5,6.

Hello everyone

I have a problem where I start something and then I never finish it. #Procrastination

But wow, this post was highly requested. So thank you guys for wanting to hear more!!!






Day 2


We practiced maneuverability. I found out I am not as bad as I thought I was going to be. I only clipped the edge of one of the cones. *thumbs up to me* 

The rest of the time, we were cooped up inside watching kind of boring videos. 



Day 3


Day 3 was depressing video day. Yay me. The instructor showed us all these videos of parents of teens who were killed either by drinking or texting and driving. There was this one of this teen got distracted by her cell phone and she hit and killed a little boy. I almost cried. After it was over, I had to go into the bathroom to calm down. 




Day 4

Day 4! Watching more boring videos!!!!! Funny Guy also drove our instructor up a wall. He likes wolf-howling while people are trying to talk!!!!! It was annoying. I was very close to strangling him!



Day 5


We had a new kid join the class. He was making up the days he missed from another class. He chose the seat right next to me. *whyyyyyyy* Troopers came and talked to us also. They were really funny. It was a younger cop and an older cop. The older one was the younger one's superior. So they were bantering back and forth. I was in stiches. XD


Day 6

We had another new kid today. It just happened to be Funny Guy's best friend. Our instructor was ecstatic (not) We ordered pizza and our instructor brought ice cream. It was really fun. There was also more video watching in between the all the sugar. :D 


That concludes drivers ed!!!!!!! Thank you guys for being so enthusiastic about it!
