7 Questions!

I'm linking up once again with Gentri's 7 Questions Wednesday!

1. What is your favorite color TO WEAR? I love wearing all cool colors! Mostly because pinks and oranges don't do a lot for me and my red hair. I'll still wear warm colors occasionally, but my very favorite to wear is blue.

2. You are given the choice between visiting every country and landing on the moon. Which would you choose? I think I'd visit every country. But dang, that's hard!!

3. What's your favorite animal and why? That's hard to say. I obviously like cats. And dogs. But I also love giraffes and zebras. So there you go.

4. You are forced to do one of the following, which would you choose? Sky dive, scuba dive, or this:  Ok, ya'll. Also, since when do I even say ya'll? Since never. Anyway, that youtube video is cray cray!! I've always thought scuba diving would be fun, but WOW. That swing is awesome! I think I might like that! Though I showed Scott the video and he absolutely hated it. :) He's terrified of heights.

5. You are given the chance to go back in time. Which era would you visit?
I think I'd just love to visit the 20th century, ha ha. I could see my birth! Just kidding, that's not why. I just love the early 1900's and 20's. It would be so fun to visit!

6. If you had the power to remove one thing (ie: flies, mosquitos, junk food) from the earth for good- what would it be? This one is kinda huge, but I'd take away physical pain. I just don't have a very high pain tolerance at all. Obviously, it helps us grow stronger, yada yada. But I dread the day I have to get surgery or go through child birth. Scary stuff! 

Scott's answer: "Wasps and bees. No hesitation. Wasps and bees."

7. What is one thing you've learned from Pinterest that made you think "GENIUS"! Oh my gosh. Is there anything on Pinterest that HASN'T made me think that? Srsly. But here's a recent one that will pretty much save my life when I make cake pops next!
And today I decided to share a funny picture of Scott... "oh no, you di 'n't!"Photobucket

Hunger Gamessss

My husband is too good to me. He probably spoils me way too much for my own good.

I'm saying this because... we went to the Hunger Games twice. Yep. We're crazy people. But you know what? I truly loved it. Both times. There have been a lot of reviews going around, but I thought it was excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed and agreed with this review (#braidtouch !!).

The movie was different than the book in certain aspects, but I still liked them both. Just for different reasons.

There was one thing, however, that I didn't like about our Hunger Games movie experience. And that, my friends was the crazy ten-year-old girls who sat behind us at BOTH showings. The first group of girls were obnoxious for the two hours before the midnight showing. They even went so far as to perform not one, but 2 skits for the entire theater. Kids these days. Once the movie started, though, they were silenced by it's greatness :).

If only the same could be said by the second group of gals. They were giddy and crazy screaming before the movie started, but I thought their mom, who was there with them, would keep them in line once it started. Or that the anticipation of seeing a great movie for the first time would keep them quiet and focused. But oh no. I am so amazed with people! I mean, I had to pay a good $22 ish dollars to come and see this. I'd kind of like to see it without your sobbing, loud crying, screaming, gasps, and audibly pointing out differences between book and movie. And I thought that wasn't too much to ask, considering it wasn't the midnight showing. Usually that weeds out the crazy screaming fans.

Apparently not.

We had a great time, despite them, though! And at least we got to fully take in the glory of the film at the midnight showing. :)




Our snacks of choice (instead of popcorn for approximately a million dollars a bag).

For those of you who have seen it, how did you like it?!

I absolutely love this saying. This week it has helped me look at little things to be thankful for.


Homemade soup in pretty bowls (this whole nice dinner thing doesn't happen as often as I'd like, so this is super blog-worthy!).


Going on nature walks around the block.


And playing with shutter speed again. :)



Finding gems like this at the thrift store make me oh so happy! It's so cool that kids used to listen to these stories on vinyl! Man, all I did as a kid was watch TV. Well, I probably read some books too. But the 3 little pigs on record is way more awesome.

This has pretty much been my spring break so far. And I've been loving every minute of it. But maybe I should get on that procrastinated homework due next week...? Meh. :)
