Craft Letters/Words

I am going to start making these letters and words to sell! So if you want any specific word, let me know! I can make any letter or word, in any color or scheme that you choose! "HOME" and "READ" are not for sale, they are just my examples! If you want me to make you some, just let me know and I would be happy to do it for you!! :)

First picture!

This is a picture of the Renaissance Mansion that my sister-in-law's wedding was in last weekend. It was such a beautiful place, I just love old houses and stuff like that!

Saturday Night...'s been awhile...I've been taking a little break from reading, unintentionally. I'm working on rereading the Twilight series before Breaking Dawn Part 1 comes out, but since I started my new job, I've been way busier and had way less time to read :( On a side note...YAY! I finally got a job!!! Haha! :) So, I've been thinking...I've been playing with some photography, and even though I'm not very good at it, it's fun to do! And I'm addicted to's pretty awesome! I like to just take random pictures of things I do during the it might be boring to most people. But I want to have a place to post all my pictures, besides Facebook. So I am thinking that I might start posting them all on beware...there may be lots of completely random things lol! But who may just enjoy it :)

So I found this app on Facebook where you can put your face on a picture with Patch from the Hush, Hush's pretty cool! I sort of have a crush on him, along with Jace from the Mortal Instruments! :) Here is the picture...

Pretty awesome, huh?!

Jace vs. Zachary

This is the last round...and Jace NEEDS to win!! Every Mortal Instruments fan needs to check it out and vote for Jace!! :)

My afternoon project

I felt creative today, so I made a project this afternoon! It only took me about 2 - 2 1/2 hours to make it, too! I found the stuff at Hobby Lobby and kind of went crazy! I think this will be my new obsession, finding words and decorating them...I'll probably have at least one for every room haha! And it turned out really well, better than I expected! :) I put the word READ on the wall above my bookcase :) 

(My dad is in the process of making me a bigger bookcase to fit all my books, so that is why it's bare on the left side.)

Glitter on the edges :)

I'm still on Cloud 9 from this last weekend, I keep thinking about it, daydreaming about was the best night of my life! My life is now complete, I have seen the Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block in concert!! My 10 year old self would be proud! :) If I knew 12 or 13 years ago, that I would be seeing Backstreet Boys in concert when I was 23, I wouldn't have believed it! lol! Words can't even describe how awesome it was, it was mind blowing! When they showed the opening sequence with everyone's pictures, I almost hyperventilated. It was like I was 12 years old all over again, screaming at the top of my lungs when I would see them on tv! I'll post a few pictures from the concert, they didn't turn out the best, but they aren't too bad. We had pretty amazing seats, but you can't really tell that from the photos. 

I was pleasantly surprised when Matthew Morrison opened for them!

AJ <3

Donnie <3 Yummy :)

He came right up to where we were in the audience and we got within INCHES of him, I mauled someone over just to get closer but didn't quite make!

If you can't tell, AJ is my favorite... :)

Breaking Dawn

I realized today that it is exactly 4 months until Breaking Dawn Part 1 comes out!!!!!!!!!!! :) Then I also realized that since I want to read all the books again before that, I should probably start soon, cuz who knows how long it will take me to read all of them since I will hopefully be starting a job next month. Which is definitely not a bad thing, if I had to read one series to read over and over, it would definitely be the Twilight Saga!!! 

July 1, 2011


Wow, I am super LAZY! I feel like I've done nothing for the past few days! Except clean, which is a never ending process, and gets dirty hours after I clean :( I'm still working on Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck, I should really start reading more and start watching Criminal Minds less :) 

So the new season of True Blood started last weekend! Any other Truebies out there?! I cannot wait to see the rest of this season, it's going to be the best one! Although I am kind of surprised how different it is from the book, not much is the same, but I'm interested in seeing where they go with it! 

I just LOVE Lafayette! He is my all time favorite character :) He's just so flippin' funny! And I just HAVE to show off my new phone cover/'s pretty much the coolest thing I've ever seen :)

[It looks like a bottle of Tru Blood]

Something might be wrong with my Blog

So I think something is wrong with my account or my blog. A few people have told me that they try viewing my profile and it doesn't work, or it won't let them leave a comment on a post. Does anyone know how I can fix this, or if there is anything I can do? Cuz I feel like a loser since I haven't had anyone comment on anything for a few weeks... :(

I finished it in 3 days!

WOW!!! I literally JUST finished "I Am Number Four", and I'm left wondering a few things. There is a slight cliffhanger at the end, not the main point of the story, but a detail that is really leaving me hanging! I don't want to wait until August to read the next one, I want it NOW!!! :) I'm surprised, even after seeing the movie and knowing what happens, I still found myself biting my nails and nervous wondering what was going to happen while I was reading the book. It is a very good book!

Now I'll probably have to watch the movie again tomorrow :) I also have to decide what to read next...SO many choices!

I Am Number 4

So I only got a few pages into "City of Fallen Angels", then I decided that I really wanted to read "I Am Number 4". I just bought the movie a week ago and realized how much I wanted to watch it again, but thought maybe I should read the book first before I watch the movie again. I started it yesterday morning, and last night when I went to bed I stopped on page 180. It's a pretty awesome book, especially if you love the movie! I recommend it to everyone who likes dystopian type books/movies!

Dead Reckoning

Well I finished Dead Reckoning. Once again, it took longer than I expected :( I don't know if any of you read the Sookie Stackhouse series, so I don't want to ruin anything, but it will NOT disappoint! I'm a huge fan of Eric and Sookie as a couple, so I'm always sad when they aren't on good terms. But when they are on good terms, they are REALLY on good terms ;) I love it! Some pretty big things happen, which once again, I'm not going to spoil anything, but there is some major exitement! Those books are always too short, I'm used to other books I read being 450-600 pages, and the Sookie books are only 320 or so. I would love for those books to be longer! :) If you haven't read any of these books yet, you NEED to! :)

P.S. The 4th season of True Blood starts June 26th, I'm SUPER stoked for that to start! The 4th book is definitely my favorite, so I'm hoping the 4th season stays close to the book!

Now I have started reading City of Fallen Angels, the 4th book in the Mortal Instruments series!

Weekend Update [but not with Seth Meyers]

Here is a little update about what I did this last weekend. I went to a Taylor Swift concert in Omaha with my best friend Jessica. AND we got to MEET her! It was pretty cool! I have to admit, I wasn't a huge fan of her before [I liked her a lot, just not as much as Jessica did], but now I really love her. She really knows how to put on a show! WOW...was pretty much all I could say afterwards! It was like watching a broadway musical. There were so many props and costume changes and she acted out every song and did a very cool routine. Some of the performances made the songs better! Like her performance for the song "Haunted" was my favorite! Girls hung from the ceiling from ribbon type things and swung around and danced from them, it was very cool! If you ever have a chance to see her concert, DO IT! And did I mention that we got to meet her! She is SUPER sweet, and talks to you like you've known her for years!

They aren't the best pictures, and don't quite capture the excitement, but it was hard to do.
