Snail Love


...I am shrinking away from the dirty glares I'm sure all of you are giving me for abandoning my blog for almost 3 weeks!


If I was to offer you an excuse (which of course would not make up for my abandoning of Neverland) I would say:
I went on vacation
I have been skyping a lot!
I have been sleeping 
I have been reading a god forsaken awful book (not really, but it was 842 pages long. Feel very sorry for me)
And I have been falling in love

Whew. Yeah, no excuse. But in order to make it up to you.. is a little story I've been working on kinda all afternoon. It's a really special story, inspired by a really special blog post by a really special friend.

 I hope you like it. 

Instead of my music challenge, let's just hop right back in with this:

Week 10

1) Hanson! I never thought they would make it on here, but I have to say...this music video makes me dance around in my room with my knee socks on. 

Give A Little - Hanson

2) This amazing Etsy shop! Do want this necklace! Cause if you remember, I kinda sorta have a little love obsession with snails. 

3) Slurpees! I used to get these as high school student. They made me feel cool (haha, get it, cause they are cold too?). In Virginia Beach there is a 7-11 on every corner! Happiness!

4) Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World!

Shh...pretend I didn't talk about this movie already. Cause we re-watched it today, and it pretty much made my whole life happy. 


5) I have something to tell you guys....

...see this boy? Yeah...^ that one. He' kind sorta maybe possibly my boyfriend. 

And I maybe sorta kinda heart him this week (and for many weeks to come)

Just fyi, I'm smiling a lot these days. 

30 day music challenge:

Day 27: a song you wish you could play

I've always loved this song, but lately I've loved it a little more. Sadly, I don't have four extra people around to harmonize with me. 

Wouldn't It Be Nice - The Beach Boys

Memory 6

When I was little I loved musicals even more than I do now (and just so you know...I adore musicals now).

Pirates of Penzance was always one of my favorites. I used to throw a shawl over my head and pretend to be Mabel (who was played by Linda Ronstadt..crazy right?) It was also the first musical I ever preformed in. 

But one of my first loves was always Annie. I wanted to dye my hair red because of her. And Carol Burnett singing drunkenly? Hysterical.

And so in honer of being in a car for 20 hours with 2 of my bestest friends ever...and driving overnight to see my 3rd bestest friend you go. 

Tomorrow - Annie

P.S. - I just got chills listening to this again

Dear Missouri,

I feel like I need to be honest with you. I've been keeping things inside for awhile, but it's time for me to let my feelings out. 

You frustrate me sometimes Missouri. One minute you are so happy to see me. The sun is shinning, and you ask me to put on my nice Africa dress cause you think I look pretty in it. 

Then the next day you hate me. You spit raindrops at me. You tell me to cover up, tell me not to show my face, tell me that it's over. 

Missouri, I want to love you. You hold some very big pieces of my heart. But if you don't shape up soon, I might be forced to leave. I don't want to. Please don't make me do this Missouri. 

Be the bright cheerful state I know you can be. 

Love always,

Day 26: a song you can play on an instrument

I can play this on the guitar. And I absolutely love this song.
