How Not to Schedule a Road Test in Kentucky

Counties to avoid: Scott, Grant, Owen, Bourbon. 
Call Woodford Co Tuesday @8am or you'll miss him. 
Call Winchester 737 7398 between 8-830am Thursdays or you'll miss him.
Jessamine's open Mon, Tues, Wed, Fri. Today's Thurs..
Lex: Call police? Busy signal...
Wait, why can't I find my permit? He didn't give it back??
He hates me.
Yes, I'm a US citizen.. 
Aw! The first nice lady I've spoken to! She even called me honey! 
I'm on hold.. Come on Frankfort, don't fail...
And you failed. 
Why can't you accept people from Georgetown??
I'm going to go cry now.
And try and find out why the guy stole my permit.

Good news, he didn't steal it. He just put it in the car next to me without mentioning it. Or maybe he mentioned it and I didn't hear. Regardless, I can now legally  drive again. With someone over 21...

On with the search..

Come on, Sheba, I only have 30mins till everyone shuts down!
Harrison Co doesn't take Georgetownians either..
Anderson Co:
Wednesday 830-10 
beside the courthouse 
permission slip. 
Yay! Success! 


I think we're good here.
See ya Wednesday.

Greek lamb sounds good.
I had an awesome dream about the Mad Hatter last night. I was Alice. It was so cool.
Unhelpful guys from church are unhelpful and useless.
Pizza is yum. But not really on my new healthy eating plan...
Remember cassette tapes? Good times. I should do a photo post I guess...

"Oh, blow me a kiss, and that's lucky too!"

I'm not a chimney sweep. I am a pet sitter. 
So why is it every time I go pet sitting I start whistling The Chimney Sweep's Song from Mary Poppins?
I got lost in thought the other.. Wow that's a ton of popcorn...
I think I have my turkey recipe perfected. Can you say WholeLottaButter?
My business has a twitter. Just starting it really. Can't wait to get the website up and running.

We (I..) also offer plantsitting and selective* babysitting.

*If there are no stalkers/ creepy exes, drug problems, drinking problems, and/ or previous criminal records, I'll gladly keep your kid. 

Cats, dogs, and zombies. Fun. Sunflowers by Vincent Van Gogh is still my favorite painting. 
"Mr. Boone! I'd like to talk to you!"
That makes four of us. Faith drives better than I do. 
"You make me smile."
May I ask you where you got your information? 
"I don't want to be skinny! I want to be *gaunt!*" ~Diane
She's brilliant. Ish.
My grandmother has an iphone. I know, I'm still having trouble processing this. 
She also has a gmail.. If I still used gchat, I'd totally invite her to talk.. We'll stick to texting, I guess. 
The orthodontist made my teeth MORE crooked. That's what I get for being proactive and fixing something that wasn't "broked."
All I wanted to do was get a retainer to prevent my wisdom teeth from causing issues.. But noooo "Retainer with springs! It'll keep your teeth nice and straighter!" 
Lies. All of it.

I miss David. 
A crazy cat lady stole him. 
Leo saw her, not me..
He said she was carrying our neighbor's cat into her house..
I'm all for crazy cat ladies, but you're supposed to adopt 50 cats, not steal them!
Some people just don't take a hint. 
Hiking is just walking!
That's what makes it awesome.
Kevin couldn't fingure out why we didn't go in the woods after our pet sitting adventure, like usual..
He doesn't understand that barefoot + woods after dark = really bad idea.
Does it have a name?
You should have known that I would ask. Everything has a name. 
Hallmark Christmas movies are so corny I wanna die.
You gotta love it.
"I already got my Christmas present!" *Kisses the girl* ~Every Hallmark Christmas movie ever.
How to save Verizon voice mails to mp3?
I have no clue. I need to learn though.. It's Daddy's Christmas gift.
I think Mary knows by now.
Ok, ok, I have the best, semi-homemade, recipe ever.
It involves bacon.
It's perfect.
Miss Piggy rocks my toe socks, and Faith and I are going to see the Muppet movie.
I'm sleepy.
And Happy.
And Dopey.
And Sneezey.
And Grumpy.
And Bashful (believe it or not..)
And Doc.
There are times I do wonder.. 
Ok, Faithy wants me to rock her to sleep.
See you tomorrow.

Jackie Chan?

I'll do a whole blog post on the concert later.
Until then, enjoy his new song!

"As you doze off tonight, I'll toss and turn.
As your sweet dreams take flight, I'll crash and burn.
While your heart flutters free, I still can't breathe.
As you stir in your sleep, I hope you think of me."

Shut up, I'm a ninja Smurf.

And yes, I am wearing a hoodie.
 I only own three, 
and as it was within reach when I left my room,
 I ended up wearing it. 
I still don't like to wear them.
All clear?

Where are you, men of courage?

"Maybe I'm crazy but I'm praying
That an angel will love meAn angel will love me
Maybe I'm a fool but I'm still fallingAsking heaven above meFor an angel to love meThe rest of my life."
The Come to the Well album by Casting Crowns is perfectly lovely.
"Seek justice, love mercy, walk humbly with your God."

Bunny Trailing.. Brb

Simon Templer.. The Saint.
Stupid Scotland Yard dude knows nothing. Go home and stay out of trouble. Striker? Strider?
Faith's so cute. I hope you know what you're doing. I make a point of it. She's eating an elephant. Should I be worried? 61 was the limit. You just asked your "dear friend" to play a waitress. She's good. I bet she looks good in hats.. That's what I'd like to know.. My feet hurt all the way up to my hips. I somehow managed to wriggle all the way to the darkest corner of our attic in search of an old baby dress of mine. Mom wants to give it to me for my hope chest. I like my steak raw. Really? I'll get it eventually. Me? Playing matchmaker? Only with a few people.. All of whom I've met in person, so no worries. They all live in separate states though.. I need to throw a party,maybe? Go sample your own roast beef. Oooooooooh.... That makes sense.. Look at that necklace. Don't move, Templer. Don't sneeze, or we die, darling. It's only 7pm and it is dark.

The Anniversary of my braces.

Today I did something stupid.
I went through all my starred emails to see why they were starred and if they needed to be or not.
And then I read them all.
Not a great way to start the day. (Though, I was right, some didn't need to be starred. Expired HallMark coupon? Fail.)
I am going to have to do something about my two front (bottom) teeth.
My wisdom teeth are coming in and messing up all the hard work my orthodontist did.
Ugh. Mom says I need to have them removed. I'm looking forward to that like I look forward to getting run over by a red pickup truck.
I only got halfway through The Extended Fellowship of the Ring. I kind of love that movie.
When I grow up, I want to be a Hobbit.
My Rangers are going to the World Series!! And we're winning this year.
Can't let the Mavericks have all the wins, you know? ;-)
Please don't close the Georgetown Post Office? I love the post office! Everything about it is happy! (Except the cost of shipping.. You'd think they'd be able to stay open by my payments alone!)
And what's the deal with $100 P.O.Boxes?
I'm thinking not yet.
Pap's pickup truck may be mine soon. It's not red. It's tan. Prolly needs to be tuned up. Not sure when I'll buy it, or how much I'll buy it for, but I'd get it before my Rav4, and it'd at least get me to work and back.
Faith hates it when people wipe her nose.
"My God is so big, so strong, and so mighty, there's nothing my God cannot do."
I used to love that song. Right now I think it's perfectly encouraging.
I am determined to NOT complain about it being cold, even once starting now. It's my almost through with the year resolution.
Mormons saying they are Christians are like the Occupy Wall Street people saying they are Tea Party.
Faith has a new doll. It's a mermaid named Merlina... Hehe.
She loved it so much at the store I had to get it for her. She loves it so much, I hate taking it from her when it's her bed time. She cries if she doesn't have her Merlina. Seriously, Faith is the cutest baby sister ever.
I don't trust diaries.
Keep it secret, keep it safe, and keep it where you can find it. That last one is extremely important.
Honey, it's a SMOLDER not a SMOLJER.
Doesn't matter, anyway, I think he broke it.
Board games are fantabulous. Monopoly takes forever though. Enjoyable as it is.. Though it is quite hard to make billions in fake little bills when everyone keeps hitting me up for cash.
"Pleeeeease, Natalie, can I have $500?" 9_9
Me: "Aw, sure you can."
Darnit, I fell for it again. @_@
My Paradise Island Piggy bank is almost full. I need to get a new one, so I don't have to cash it in.
My camera needs a name. Help?
I taught Faith how to play the drums.
Mattress sledding? Right on!
Stupid leprechauns.
Jeremiah 29:11 is a very wonderful verse.

There's a full moon tonight, and it is so bright the outside looks like daytime with stars.
It's amazing.

Oh, ok.

The awkward moment when he's going to kill her, she doesn't love the other him, the other him falls down a waterfall, and I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. His wedding dress saved him. Can I try dress sailing? You just might be a leprechaun. "Many a lady left at the alter has jumped to her doom! Ooooh! Here comes another one.." *Splosh.*
Ironically The Black Widow got caught in a web. Hahahaha. Where's Waldo? Oh, he's with her. Ok. She has a bow. I like bows. "You don't want to return with me?" "Oh, in a heartbeat!" "Well, you don't have to, I like it right here."
Don't you ever marry Prunella. Ick.
Everyone is snoring.
9mins of battery?
I'm going to fly a fish now.
"Think of me fondly when we've said goodbye!"
She's asleep, but she needs her jammies.. Goodnight world.
See y'all tomorrow.

"There'll never be a day when I don't think of you..."

Beware the Phantom of the Operaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! (Also, happy birthday, Mom!)

That's where I was last night.

Well, at the Lexington showing of it. 
It was amazing. 
The guy that played the phantom was the best out of all of them, in my opinion.
Christine had such a gorgeous voice.
The songs were fantastic.
"Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime,
Say the word and I will follow you!"

Loved that part.
Though, I won't lie.. I cried for the phantom..
Quite a few time, actually..
I felt so sorry for him!

Today's Mom's birthday.. I got her something very cool, and paid speed shipping for it..
"It'll be there in two days!"
That was 2 weeks ago...

My princess is sick. She had a fever all last night. It's gone now, but I feel so bad for her. 
Everyone around here is singing Phantom of the Opera songs..
I can't wait till the play comes out on DVD. I was quite ready to watch it again.
Also, apparently, according to The Phantom of the Opera AND the new Barbie movie,
girls that have music constantly playing in their heads are crazy. 
*Raises hand*
That's me...
Right now it's 
"He's there, the phantom of the opera! Beware the phantom of the opera!"
And just saying, I hit every one of the notes to the song when I sang it in the car with Faithy.

Not really my night. Or my computer.

I started work on Mom's birthday gift on her computer instead of Sheba, so yeah.. I'm an idiot.
Here's some pictures of yesterday.
Oh, it's October 7th. THAT explains it....
Two years ago tomorrow I went to the Casting Crowns concert.. Heh...

Don't remind me..

Nicky: "The inside of this thing smells sooo bad!!"

I like this picture.

I was dying to play "He loves me, he loves me not.." 
But you're *technically* not supposed to pick the flowers.

Dragon Fly Marsh it pretty cool.

Much like waterfalls.

I have a weird thing for taking pictures of bees..I just like them, I guess..
They're so photogenic!

Unlike this lil dude..

Water is so fun to take pictures of..

And to stick your hand in when no one is watching.. 


Seriously.. I was craving some catfish..:-p

It would be so cool to go play in that..

She agrees.


*Technically* that's a weed, not a flower...

Bridges are so lovely..

Hottest day of October and I dress like I'm going to a Christmas party. 
It was cold when .Ii left the house. 

Helicopters are awesome.

As good as it's going to get with a picture of them.. :-P

If this doesn't make you go "aw.." you're pretty cold.

Mom wanted a picture of me. 
Okee dokee.

She's got her smolder down pat.

This is what we get for taking her to the Pooh Bear movie.

So cute..

Can you say Christmas card?
(Ok, I have to photoshop some of us in..)
(Darn, I don't have photoshop..)

What, he's cute!

I am SO looking forward to March...

He's here to save the day.

Next time I go here, I'm going to try some of those perspective shots..

And that's my shop. <3

The End.
See y'all tomorrow.

Mad as a Hatter. But I've Heard the Best People Are...

It's October 6th.
Happy Mad Hatter Day!

While  ^he^ was the original,

^He^ is definitely my favorite Mad Hatter.

In honor of the day I wore a hat. 
Mom called me Hatalie all day, and eventually made me take it off because she said I looked like someone who should be in England, not Kentucky. 

I hate how I look in this picture, but because of the story I posted it anyway.
Nicky won me this hat because he said I needed a hatter hat.

Faith is most definitely a hat person. She had a hat on today, but I've not uploaded pics yet.

She likes this hat best.

Chloe's also a hat person.

I may become more of one later on, but my styles are so limited at the moment..
(I only look good in floppy brims.)

Pics of the day to come soon. Until then, ciao.
