yellow flower

i received a package from brinja! she sent me a button from her shop in denmark & a pretty yellow flower postcard. thanks brinja! she has a lovely blog which you should visit.

i just watched this intriguing movie:

speaking of movies, i can't wait for this one coming out august 7!! (the mash game is fun to play :) it reminds me of middle school!)

one more thing! in my sociology of film class, my classmate, who is friends with someone on the academy awards board, saw new moon & said it was really well done & even better than twilight! yikes. really can't wait for this one either!

it has been way too long

wow. i am sorry i haven't posted in so long. life has been just too busy. i just finished my summer job at the county fair so now i have more time for other things like blogging! these are photos of my last night at the fair. my friend frankie & i walked around taking photos or all the ride lights. so brilliant! & he made me art at the kid art place we were working at. he's so, this post is going to contain a lot of different things. i was debating on whether i wanted to do a lot of little posts or one really long one. this long one just seemed easier.

i was tagged by kait a while back to list six things that made me smile. well, here it goes! (all photos but sister photo from google search)

1. peonies
i think they are becoming my favorite flower.

2. getting mailthis seems to be happening a lot lately!

3. pride & prejudicei could watch this movie over & over again & never get tired of it.

4. the field of sunflowers i pass on the way to school on the reminds me of everything is illuminated.

5. my sistershe's leaving for school at the end of september. i'm really going to miss her.

6. tom cruise dancing in risky business

i will tag lizzie, wendy, melissa, mariel, & raquel. have fun ladies:]

well, i've been going to summer school every tuesday & thursday. one of my classes is a sociology of film class. it's really neat & i'm liking it alot. these are the films we have watched so far! (photos from imdb)

twilight (!!!) the truman showhalf nelsonabout a boy

one more thing before i end this post: thank you for all of your lovely comments!! everytime i get one i seriously get so happy. they make my day:] & i enjoy responding to each one. it makes this blog so much more personal. after this post, though, i'm not going to reply to the comments. at least until i am done with summer school & my life calms down a bit. i hope this is ok. i will start replying again as soon as i can!

dandelionkisses: aahh nutritional yeast. that's it.

penelope: thank you! i really like it too. i didn't think it was going to come out good though because the kite was so high up. zoom comes in real handy:]

ying: oh the kite runner! no i haven't read or seen the movie. i should. miss you.

thy lady: oh i'm glad the postcard made it to you! no, i don't have twitter...i can't decide if i like it yet or not. hehe.

kait: haha you know what? i didn't even think of juno when i titled that post! but yeah, juno!! my sister is much better thank you! she has fully recovered. oh i was guessing maltese too! awwe. so cute:]

my-my: yikes! yeah i stopped by today & went shopping with my friend. fun stuff.

janessalynne: yeah soquel! you need to go next year!! it would be nice to have you there :o)

go fly a kite

camping was pretty good. we went to the beach which was about five minutes away from where we were staying. but my sister got tonsillitis again & she had to go back early, so it wasn't as enjoyable as it could have been because she wasn't there the whole time. on the way home we stopped for some food & there was this huge fabric store across the street. so much fabric!

pauline: your writing was not messy at all :] & thanks for the happy camping wishes!

dandelionkisses: ugghhh. i didn't make it to urban outfitters :/ i just came back from campmeeting on sunday. oh & yeah texture & taste. because i can never find anything i like when it comes to vegan mac n cheese.

brinja: oh yes! i do! i could have sworn i sent it... i'll just send it again :]

my-my: yay! i tried to leave a comment yesterday, but i couldn't...i'll try again!

nottia: oh i do the same thing!! whenever the bacardi commercial comes on. & i love that commercial anyways :]

thy lady: woo hoo! i'm excited too :]

i'm leaving for camping this weekend, so most likely i won't be posting until monday or sunday night. have an amazing weekend!

fabulous fabric

my oh my i've been getting so many things in the mail lately! it's simply amazing & makes me happy all day! i received a free grab bag of fabric from singapore from karen & +handmadelove+. i believe that the giveaway is continuing this whole month of july, so you should check it out here. all you have to do is pay for shipping (about $3.50 usd). anyways, i love my fabric!! aren't the patterns lovely?

i started school again yesterday. ugh. not very happy about that. i'm taking two classes for my major (sociology) that are 3 1/2 hrs each & in the same classroom. this means i am in the same classroom for 7 hours twice a week. yikes. at least one of my classes is sociology of film & we get to watch a movie in each class. so that makes it a little better. i'm excited to see what movies we will be watching :o)

thy lady: oh you're too cute! haha i feel like dancing around with you :D you are welcome. oh good! i think my postcard to you will like it's new home.
inside the cabinet of wonder: thanks dear! oh i know right!? awesome gift. i just started tin man & i'm liking it indeed :]

brinja: aw. :o) yes, i have been busy.
allison: such a good song! i think it may be my song for summer 09.

i got my giveaway prize in the mail! it is fabulous & so colorful. with all this sewing supplies, i want to start new sewing projects! even though i not very big at sewing... :o) thanks jennifer!!this was just a box at work that i thought was kinda ironic & an oxymoron.friday
i spent the day with my sister & mom shopping & having fun throughout a city. i went to anthropologie, a bookstore, a paper store, & ikea. we ate lunch at ikea & a swedish candy called daim. it was yummy.this is the handmade paper i bought. it's amazing! the light one has real leaves throughout it & the blue one has a bunch of different color fibers.saturday
i went to the beach with my friends. football was played...american football that is :o)later that day, when the sun was setting there was a glorious double rainbow in the sky. it wasn't even raining & that made it even more incredible. i was at my friend's house for the ufc championships when i saw it. (georges st-pierre is my favorite & he won!)i received my post card from jennifer! thank you!! i love getting mail:]
