I Apologize

Hey guys,

I was so busy that I forgot to post the photo challenge last Friday! So we'll have a delayed start. But that's ok. Don't hate me; all of my friends agree that I have become half insane and therefore cannot be expected to remember things of importance. :)

This week's theme is - a black and white photo!

Post your photo and link back here (the button is having self-esteem problems and refuses to show up), and Gloria and I will pick our finalists. 
If you have any questions, leave a comment! I'm excited to see your entries! 



Guess Who's Too Busy To Post?

Alternative title: Please read!
This girl. At least for the time being. But until I come back (no, it will not be months. maybe a few more days), I have another questions to pose to the public.
Unforunately, not too many people made group name suggestions (even though a lot of them were awesome! :)), so instead of anyone getting interviewed, we actually brainstormed today, came up with a long, long list of name possibilities, and narrowed it down to two.
Now we need you to vote! Go to the sidebar and choose:

Awkward Silence


Take Note


The winner will be our group name and once picked, I'll set up the youtube channel.



A Call for Ideas

Hey! How is everyone?
Today was one of those freezing days where the snow came down in little specks, just taunting us as we walked from class to class. Brr.

But back to the current topic (did I actually have one? mkay, no), Kendall's and my (no clue if that was correct grammar or not) audition for the rising stars concert was yesterday, and now we have a week until we hear results. Agony...

Anywho. We want to set up a youtube channel and hopefully audition for other things with more duets later on. What we need is a group name, and we haven't come up with anything too great so far. Coming up with catchy one-word group names? Not a strong point.
Oh well. That's why you guys are here. Thank you for coming today.

Comment with your suggestions for a group name (girly, catchy, fun, music-like, etc.), preferably one word or maybe two if it works.

If we pick one of yours, that person gets interviewed here! I'm really excited about hearing your suggestions!



For the Record...

for the record: I haven't done one of these in a while, and I wanted to do one now. Mary Catherine logic right there...

for the record: Today is the one year anniversary of this blog! I can't believe I've made it this far and (although there have been rough patches) stuck with it. But it's fun, and blogging is a place to share my thoughts. I hope to stay awhile.

for the record: Yesterday it was around thirty degrees, and today it reached seventy. I wish the weather would pick a constant temperature. That's one of the main reasons I hate living here (don't get me wrong, I love everyone here) - the weather is wacked out.

for the record: Pray for Kendall and I on Wednesday! We've been rehearsing for months to audition for our local performing arts center's "rising stars" concert. We're doing For Good again, and we've practiced so much and our voices have grown so much stronger that it sounds a bajillion trillion times better than it did almost a year ago. Plus, since this is a bigger deal, we choreographed it a little bit. I'm way excited, in case you couldn't tell.

for the record: I'm slowly - slowly - getting back into the groove of school. I've overslept the past two days, but hopefully I'll catch up on zz's this weekend and be up and ready for next week.
Or not. ugh.

for the record: Would you believe I haven't had a chance to use my camera lens thermos yet? I guess I'll probably end up making hot chocolate in it to bring to school one day randomly.

for the record: Finally got a Pinterest! It happened through a long and complicated process in which I created and then deleted a Twitter account. Because I don't have facebook and I don't want a Twitter account. Now I'm addicted, just like all of the other bloggers out there. Check out my boards and feel free to follow!

for the record: Since I'm in school this year, I get to do solo & ensemble. We've gotten together a four person ensemble and we're going to do the choral version that I have of "Popular" from Wicked. I would be doing "Defying Gravity" for my solo if my mom didn't want me to do a classical piece. Yep, I'm on a Wicked music streak...

for the record: Gloria and I have started hosting a photo challenge! She took the reigns for the first week - go check it out to see rules and enter! It will be here the week after next. :)

for the record: That's about all the news for today *imitates newscaster voice*. Until next time, remember, we're on your side.

that's how my little sister fell asleep the other day...



Make a Wish

We have about four birthdays just within our little family over the winter season. M turned four today.
I can't believe it's been four years since I got the little sister that I had prayed and pleaded for for over eleven years!
PS: First day back at school. Meh.



I absolutely love the zoo. From the bubbling fish and the striped fuzzy zebras, it's just such a great demonstration of God's marvelous creation.

The horses are my favorite, naturally. They're so fuzzy during the winter.

I really love how a lot of these turned out...

Aww... penguin.

Who knew that pirahnas were sparkly? Viscious with sharp teeth and sparkles. Like - vampire fish.
Never mind.

I die...
