It's OK, I'd be grumpy too if I didn't own a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles poster.

10 Reasons to LOVE Strange Magic

Johanna and I have been trying to watch Strange Magic since June. Every time she/we went to the movie store it was checked out. HOWEVER all of that changed and we were able to watch it.

So now, without further ado:


#1 There's this thing. I can't even remember what they called it.

#2 There's a lot of singing.

#3 A lot of singing.

#4 There was a duel!

#5 There was an annoying brat who was obsessed with his hair

#6 ...who does impressions 

#7 The sisters have a sweet relationship 


#9 Everyone on the internet is mixing it with Frozen.

#10 The Main Character was as confused about the movie as me.

BONUS #11 It written by George Lucas

All in all a very fun, entertaining movie with lots of older music.

Summer Bucket list: The end result

Summer is officially over and almost everyone is back to school. I'm sad that the warm weather has come to an end, but at the same time I'm excited to see what this year will bring.
Look at all the things I managed to accomplish! 

- Go camping (YEAH Stumpy) 
- Have lots of photo shoots
-Make a video (We tried, but it just refused to come together...)
- Have a dessert night (And it was gooooooood)
- Learn  how to use a film camera   (Every time I turn around someone has another film camera for me. I think I have ten now. I'm pleased to report, however that I've been using one :)
-Record some songs on the piano (Not yet! I did however make a cover of Beautiful Scandalous Night )
- Vlog/video diary (I didn't vlog per say but I'm crossing it off because I have lots of random clips that I'll make in to a video)
- Go to the Westerner 
- Go somewhere in costume (Johanna and I went garage saleing as a pirate and Princess Anna.)
- Get my drivers license (I have yet to take the test)
-Watch movies with Johanna (AAAGONYYYYYY also Big Hero 6 made me cry a little.)
- Get some library books/ hang out at the library (Guess where I am right now?)
- Make brownies  (I'm 90% sure I did...)
- Make nachos ( I did, a few times)
- Get completely soaked in a river  (Quinne and I washed our hair in the river on several occasions) 
- Get some bruises ( None so impressive as last year, though I did fall off a horse.)
- Make cupcakes
- Try hair chalk
- Sleep sometimes
- Ride a horse

- Take pictures of the stars   (I did, though I wish I knew the summer stars better.) 

All in all it's been a pretty darn great summer. I'm thankful for all the things I've done and all the laughs I've shared with people. In person. 

I can't tell you how good it is to look someone in the eye, and not at a screen. 

Hello! (11 questions to start the season)

Hello there! It’s been a few months since I’ve been here. I thought a nice way to sort of kick off the blogging season would be to answer a couple questions. The queries on this list were sent to me by Quinne in one of her letters. Since the letter is dated sometime in April this post is much overdue.
11.       Can you drive a stick shift?
I had an afternoon of lessons when I was…12?... 11? But sadly nothing stuck (Sorry Wes!)
22.       If you could change your eye colour, would you?
Hmmm I really love green eyes, so I might. But on the other hand I like my eyes just the way they are (blue with a little bit of green).
33.       Name something you dislike about the day you’re having
Okay… I don’t like that we were running late this morning. (I DO like that I’m sitting at a library computer where the internet is FAST)
44.       Where is the shirt your wearing from?
Funny story, this is the shirt I got in Amsterdam this spring.
55.       Do you like watching scary movies?
I don’t think I’ve ever watched a ‘scary’ movie. If I did, I probably wouldn’t enjoy it, I prefer laughing over everything else.
66.       What’s the best part of school?
Learning thing I can use, or that I find fascinating. (ie vocabulary over algebra)
77.       Is your life anything like it was three years ago?
Three years ago was 2012, so yes then was similar to now. Only then I was just starting to get into the swing of living on two continents.
88.       DO you have someone you can be your complete self around?
I am very blessed to have several people I’m completely comfortable with. (I’m looking at you my dear siblings. I also have Quinne and Sarah.)
99.       Have you ever fallen in public?
 Not that I recall, though I’m pretty sure I’ve have a close call or two.
110.   Name something you have to do tomorrow
My last day of driver training! *nervous smile*
111.   Favourite season, and why?
Currently: summer, as much as I love the yellow leaves and snow, summer is the time of year that I talk to people.

How exciting was that? I’ll be back eventually with all the things I was able to scratch off my summer bucket list.
