My Dog Ate My Homework

I wish!!! But at least graham crackers and peanut butter make good study snacks. :)

What do you like eating while studying?

Lately... LIFE

I've started school now!! I'm glad to be back and to be seeing my school friends, but I miss summer vacation. Not the heat... just the whole 'no school' thing. :)

I am so ready to sip hot cider and go to football games at public school, and freeze to death in the youth barn, and wear shorts with tights, and hear the leaves crunch under my feet. Oh, and to visit pumpkin patches.

What's your fave thing about fall?

I changed the title of 'Pic of the Week' to 'Snap-Happy'. It sounds cuter, I think.

I love this collage of Kate and Will watching cycling during the London Games. They are like the cutest couple to ever grace the planet!!!! I guess Great Britain did well? :)

Have a great Thursday!!!

Everyone, I am posting this on my Netbook.

This is a fantastic moment in history.

Or maybe not. ;)

Most of you might not know this, but like 6 months ago my Netbook, Pixie, crashed. Well actually, Windows crashed on Pixie. It was a very sad day. When my Netbook was working, I was on it prolly every day. Now that its back and working again, I am going to try and use my Netbook to bring glory to God, and not to waste time on... at least not as much as I did. :) Here are just a few pictures I can take on Lenova Easy Cam, which is what I've mainly been doing on Pixie. Its quite fun!

//attractive? i think yes!//

On another note, I can't believe I start school in 2 days!! I'm so ready to get back, tho! Yes, I'm crazy. :)

What have you been doing in your free time?

I Want a House in the Sky

Here are just a few pics from google images...

//mary-kate & ashley olsen's past penthouse//

Wouldn't it be awesome to live in one of these someday?? If you had the opportunity to live in a penthouse, would you? Providing you had the money to, of course! :)

Which penthouse is your favorite?

Jing and I

Just chillin at home. Watching Andrew play golf on the Wii. Preparing for Grandma and Grandpa to come in two days!! (Grandpa happens to be Jingles's favorite person in the whole world.) Singing to 'Magic' by Selena Gomez. Going on Facebook and 'stalking' people. Missing Renew. Sleeping in the living room (Jingles, of course, not I), and wishing I could meet all you lovely people who read my humble li'l blog!

What are you doing on this chilly Tuesday afternoon?

The Pixie Cut

Pixie cuts, as shown here by Emma Watson, Alison Lohman, and Carey Mulligan, have grown in popularity over the years. This short hairstyle takes confidence to wear, and looks the best on people with oval-shaped faces.

Would you ever try the pixie cut?

Do you like the look of it?

Pic of the Week { New Series}

I am soooo ready for fall - aren't you? 
So, I decided I'm going to start a new series. Yeah, I know I haven't done very good on the airport style series, but I will try my best to get up another post on that ASAP.
So, this series will pretty much consist of any picture I like on any given week. It could be from my personal file, or a pic I found on the Internet. :)

Does this sound interesting? Give me your thoughts!
