Blog Challenge Day Twenty Eight

Favorite TV Shows

Sorry that I've been absent that last couple days.  I've been feeling just awful so I took that time to rest up.  I'm not feel 100% but I do feel much better from where I started.

Today's challenge is to list my favorite TV shows.  First off, I have to say that I LOVE to watch my TV shows.  I look forward to them all week.  I'm so bad!

1. The Big Bang Theory: I seriously LOOOOOVE this show.  I love the geeky humor.  I can't pick just one favorite character.  I love them all.  I started watching when they were on season 2 and I've watched every episode up to date... about a 100 times!

2. Pretty Little Liars: Ugh!  I love shows that keep me guessing.  I swear, I thought I had this show all figured out and then BAM!  They throw a curve ball and I am left sitting there like "What the heck just happened?!"

3. Grey's Anatomy: So many characters have come and gone.  I am one of those people that has a hard time letting go when they remove a main character!  I feel in love with the show for a reason and you can't just take away one of those reasons!!  But I have to say, I still find the show pretty amazing.  I do admit though, I'm not as in love with it as I first was.

4.  Vampire Diaries:  I LOVE all the Twilight movies.  So I really thought I wouldn't like this show because I know there a quite a few differences in the vampires.  But I love it!  It's one of those shows that I get invested in the characters... so I hope they're not planning on killing of any of the main characters any time soon!!

5. House M.D.: Last but not least, House has been one of my favorite all time shows.  I just love his attitude.  I'm kind of a sucker for those "complicated medical issues" TV shows.  This one just fits what I love perfectly!  I can't get enough.

Blog Challenge Day Twenty Five

Who Inspires Me?

So my answer to this question is going to be pretty vague.  I'm not going to name someone in particular but rather a group of people.

I am inspired by mothers who make motherhood look like a walk in the park.  I love being a mommy and I wouldn't change it for anything.  I definitely experience those moments when I wonder how I'll make it through the next 15 minutes with a screaming toddler but those moments of pure bliss make everything worth it.

The thought of having more children just makes me so happy and hopeful.  If others can do it, so can I!  I'm determined!  I'm hopeful!

My Favorite Hobby

ONCE UPON A TIME, at a restaurant in my hometown, I received a gift from my mom that would change my life! 

Ok... maybe this is starting off a little dramatic so let's get a little more serious.

When I turned 15, my mom had given me a scrapbook that she had started.  Inside were scrapbook pages of me when I was younger.  I thought it was such a personal and thoughtful gift but I wasn't sure what to do with it.

I was so inspired by what my mom created that I, too, wanted to try out this newly introduced hobby.  So that's where it all began!

I started out by just throwing pictures and paper together with a few stickers and thought it was soooo cool.  I then got into digital scrapbooking.  This was so easy and fun but I felt like it took the creativity out of it.  

Over the next few years, I watched countless YouTube videos of women scrapbooking their fondest memories, picking up tips and tricks.  The creativity began to grow inside me and I wanted to scrapbook all day!

Today, I love to scrapbook, make cards and home decor, and pretty much anything thing that involves pretty paper and glue!

Favorite Instagram Picture


Sorry for the last post. There will be two posts today because I wanted to share my favorite Instagram photo.

I took this photo while my little peanut and I were enjoying a movie.  We were cuddling under my favorite blanket and she grabbed my hand.  I'm so happy I didn't miss it!  Love these kind of memories!

Favorite Memory

I don't think I could pick just one favorite memory so I'll just share the one I was thinking about the other day.

I dreaded Sunday school when I was a little girl.  I would always hope that my parents would accidentally sleep in and when they did, I was ecstatic!

One of the bonuses of going to Sunday school was the times that my mom let us go to the old corner store.  It was a few blocks from the church.

My mom would tell us beforehand if we could go to the store to get a treat and I would look forward to it through my whole Sunday school class.

Class would be done and my little brother and I would make a mad dash to the old corner store.  I remember getting 1 cent Tootsie Rolls.  What's better than 100 Tootsie Rolls to rot those teeth?!

The store has been ripped down since then but it still has a strong place in my memory.  :)

Blog Challenge Day Twenty One

If I could be a Disney Princess...

I would be Belle!!

I love to read.  I find something so powerful in reading.  It's like living in their world and experiencing what it would be like to be someone else.

I would love to live in a mansion where the teacups, clock and candlesticks talked.  Ok... this seems a little far fetched, but can you imagine the kind of conversations you would have?!  Plus, what's cooler than inanimate objects becoming animated?!

Like pretty much all of the princesses, Belle has a beautiful singing voice.  I would love to have a powerful singing voice!

She is sooooo beautiful.  Obviously, she's a fictional character but I've always thought women with brunette hair and golden brown eyes possess such beauty.   

She has a heart full of purity and love.  She falls in love with a creature who sends others in the opposite direction.  She finds something that is seen as ugly to be wonderful and handsome.  

What Disney Princess do you admire?  Leave a comment below!
