a good bromance

oh man. these two guys at the coffee shop are debating whether a scottish accent or a chekoslovakian accent would pick up women better. i have an answer: neither. oh and this came after their decision to become gypsies. and one of them dissed the other for being 32 and still in college. oh man. is this real life?

uggg

all day. this has taken me almost 5 hours. and i still have no paper to show for it.

Procrastinating

cookie dough. for breakfast. this says how much i am procrastinating. i dont even like cookie dough that much. this is good, but still. i need to write me lit paper. :(

101 Dalmations

Funny story. So a few days ago Sarah borrowed 101 Dalmatians from us (on VHS, nonetheless). Just a little background, Hannah LOVED this movie. She seriously has always dreamed of owning her own dalmatian  one day and watched this movie non stop as a child. So she trusted Sarah to take good care of it, and return it in one piece. Sarah watched it, enjoyed it, and brought it back to us at church Sunday. Hannah put it in the pew rack in front of us and forgot all about it. She came home from church and panicked when she realized it was still in the pew rack. Like full on panic. We then had to remind her that 1. It was left at CHURCH. We hoped people of the church would not steal this beloved possession. 2. It was VHS. Do people other than us still own a VHS player?? 3. It was "well loved" (aka nasty). The case is cracked and has traces of what looks like chocolate. Not sure though. So right after school we rushed down to the church and hallelujah!:
IT WAS SAFE AND SOUND. It was a Christmas miracle. Lesson learned.

Day 50: A Happy Heart

Day 50. A Happy Heart.

Holy moly, I did it. I really did it. I have been a successful blogger for 50+ days. The whole point of this blog was to point out the happy things in my day because, as we all know, a thankful heart is a happy heart. This entire weekend has been one filled with family, friends, love, and many blessings. Before I get too far, here is my Thanksgiving day in pictures:





Flying plastic meat.

Toe thumbs.

It was so great being with people I love. That is the one thing in the whole world that gives me the greatest satisfaction. I love parties. I love people/family. Combine the two, it is a sweet, sweet combination. With only a week and a half of school left I feel like I have been given the energy to power through what I know will be an incredibly stressful week.

So here I am. Trying to figure out what all this means. All I know is I am thankful. So thankful. Here is a small taste of what I am feeling.

1. Jesus. I have no idea what my life would be like right now at this point without Him. Just saying, I have enough issues but it honestly scares me to think what my life would be without my beautiful Savior.
2. My family. I can't even put into words how blessed I am. I truly cannot even comprehend how good I have it.
3. 2011. I am ready for a fresh start. 2010 would probably be classified as the most bittersweet time in my life. January 2010-August 2010 was just a strange year of loss of people, relationships, and spirit. Late August was a turning point for me. I really had to let go of everything I had planned for my little life and realized I need to trust God to take care of me. So here I am. Nowhere close to where I thought I would be at this time last year. But I am loving it. I have been so much more happy then I have been in a while. Not that this whole thing is about me being happy, but I just am feeling it.
4. Sunshine. This is weird for me. Up till this year, I have always loved the rain, the dark, the cold. I have been longing for the sun, the golden sunsets, and all the beauty that comes with it. Is this God's way of telling me I belong in California?? I'm hoping so.
5. Food. I love food.
6. Music.
7. Crafts.
8. Coincidences.

God is so good to me.

So what now??

I have decided to continue blogging. NOT EVERYDAY THOUGH. I love blogging but it has been such a major task/source of procrastination. But I will keep blogging. Here is my new plan: new name, new layout, new ideas. Starting December 8th, I will be sewing/creating like crazy, for example. I need to blog all this as a way to motivate me to finish the tasks I have before me. So that is my plan.

But thank you. It makes me happy to see that people actually read this. It is kind of silly but I enjoy it. I totally encourage everyone to start blogging. I have really loved doing it.

A little boy I babysit once told me "Melissa Miller, my heart is telling me I love you". Needless to say, that made me melt. It was so sweet and just a picture of how our heart loves others. So. What is my heart telling me?

My heart is telling me I am happy.
 My heart is telling me I am content.
 My heart is telling me I love Jesus.
 My heart is telling me I am blessed.
 My heart is telling me I am thankful.
So incredibly thankful.

This was Christy drinking bacon soda. The only one brave/dumb enough to drink it. I love her.
