i'm back

I am finally back from vacation;)  Yay!  I'm tired and.... well, that's just it, I guess.  Tired.  Nothing else, just plain old tired.  So I'm going to take a break from blogging until I regain my blogging strength (oh yeah!).  Plus I just got The Art of Tangled and the second to last book in the Left Behind the kids series... both from the library (squee!!!!)!!!  So I will be pretty occupied with both of those.  Plus my home school co-op starts on Wednesday (nooooo).  Plus plus it's my first year of high school.  Plus plus plus (okay i need to stop after this *haha*) I have three classes at my co-op and one class at our local high school (of course i'll have other classes at home) =O  How will I ever survive?!?!  For those of you who aren't homeschoolers, it's kinda hard to go back to 'school school' after being home schooled for so long.  But then again, it is my first year of high school, so other kids my age have to go through the exact same thing:]  Oh, well;]  Prayers would be helpful.  Your comments have been the sweetest and most comforting (they always have)!!!

hey y'all

I know you're thinking I shouldn't be back by now from my little vacation.  And yes, you are correct:)  I am not back.  I am at a Microsoft visitor center as I type this out.  I still have two days before I will be officially home.  I thought I'd write all of you and let you know that I am still a living human being;)  And to all who have given  me wonderful comments in the past few days, thank you!  It made me smile like no one else's business..... *smile* 

So until a few more days I bid you a good bye.  If you are also wondering if my stats have gone up, you are also correct!  I have had a few people click on my blog that I did not even know:D  So happy!!!  Love you my dearies;)

bye bye blog

At least for the week that is.  What?  Did you really think I was going to delete my purty little blog, and when I'm getting so into the blogging world?!  I don't think so;)  As of today I will be gone for a week to get away for a fun week of fun-ness!  So, if you are new to my blog, whether you are here for the first time, a new follower, or you've stayed a while and don't feel like admitting it, feel free to explore my blog some more!  Go to some of my pages at the top of my blog, go to older posts, do whatever:D 

Is it wrong or weird to have a goal for your blog?  I mean like a 'get as many followers as I can on my blog' goal.  Well, if it is... don't say anything;)  Cause I'm starting one.  This is my goal:

"Get up to 100 followers on 'it's my life' by Christmas"

  I know it's a stretch but I'm willing to take the challenge.  I already have twenty three amazing followers, and I am so happy for each one of them:)  So twenty three followers, I need your help to accomplish this huge goal of mine!  Cheer me on, spread the word, blog about, whatever;)  This means the world to me, friends!  Au revoir!

mouth watering.... in the oddest way

Do you ever crave a simple snack?  Do you ever crave a simple healthy snack?  So simple you could walk into the kitchen, rub it on your sleeve for an extra shine and crunch into it?!  Well, my cravings lately (lately meaning, just a few minutes ago) have been for a nice apple!!!  Isn't it such a simple healthy snack??? 

I had my first huge apple after playing Halo with my cool dudes (brothers) and their awesome best friend.  When I bit into the crisp apple.... I don't even know if I could describe it!  It was almost like it was the first time I had tasted an apple.  Which is weird, cause I had an apple a few days ago....

Maybe it had something to do with the different kinds of apples we had.  A week ago we were stocked with Red Delicious apples and now we just stocked up on Fuji apples.  I think Fuji's are defiantly my new favorite;)  Yup!  It's official:)  I'm a for sure most definite Fuji apple craver/lover!

I think I'm craving something..... could it be another Fuji?  I don't know;)  It could be baby carrots with lite bleu cheese dressing (mmmmmm....), or celery with ranch dip.... and HOT WINGS!  Okay that's not as healthy..... :P

What healthy, yet totally simple snack are you craving the most right now?

disney or pixar?

As many of you know, it's been my dream for the past several months to become a Disney Animator!  Ever since I have watched  Tangled (made by disney), I knew right then what God had called me for.  It was really a sign that I was supposed to be a Disney Animator!  Maybe that's why I love it so much;) 

Nevertheless, I have stumbled upon a new option.... Pixar.  I saw a video on YouTube the other day of John Lassetter giving a tour of Pixar studios.  It was so amazing watching all of the animators at work and how John L.  dealt with things.  I had been trying to find one of these videos for Disney's Animation studios, but had no luck. 

The video was so warm and welcome, as if I was really talking to John Lassetter!  It made me so badly and desperately wanting to work at Pixar, right then and there.  But then I remembered that it was DISNEY that made me want to be an animator, so why shouldn't I go with Disney!?!?!  I had to remind myself, "Allie!  Your are only fourteen!!!  You won't be dealing with any of these questions and sort until you're in college!  Slow the heck down..."

But after having this moment of.... shock I guess,  I've been having thoughts on whether or not I'm evening going to be an animator?!  What if God has called me to do something else besides Disney or besides Pixar!!??  What if, what He wants me to do in the future is something I haven't even thought of as an option???


For now I'm praying.  I can't really do much about the future right now... like I said, I'm fourteen.  You can't do much when you're fourteen.  But I know that if I pray, God will make things a little bit more visible and more clear as I grow up;) 

This is me calling out to you for guidance!  I don't know the plans you hold for me, only you know.  I pray that you will give me strength as i go into high school as I try to figure these things out and that you will be with me, mom, and dad as we now start to go through this new chapter in my life.  Please help me become a stronger Daughter of Christ, Lord, so I may strive to learn your ways for me and to help reach others.
Thank you, God!  In your name I pray Amen!

I know I've used this verse a lot on my blog, but I have to use it again;)

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

for the love of friday

I feel bad.  I haven't really done any actual post 'posts'  for 'for the love of friday'.  Sure I post videos and pictures, but I need to update more on stuff... just for the love of Friday!!!

So I guess I'll talk about hair stuff (please know that i was not paid to talk about this brand).  First off, I guess I should say my hair does not do well with a lot of product hair stuff.  It doesn't work with mouse (at all) or any other thick products.  They just weigh my hair down and do the complete opposite of what it really is supposed to do o.O  Are you with me?  I'll take that as a yes;)

So I bought this hair stuff (which is a product) that I had seen in a magazine.  The product is called Bed Head 'after party'.  I am super happy with this product!  It's supposed to make your hair nice and smooth, catch fly away hairs, and (the most important thing of all) it makes your hair smell so GOOD!!  When I first tried it on my hair, I think I used to much, cause my hair looked a little greasy.  But I tried it on the next morning and I looked so good!  This is the first product I have actually found that works for my hair and that I also like the smell of.  Like I said, Bed Head did not pay me to advertise this on my blog, I am just really happy this worked for me;)

Directions by *Allie*:  After your hair is dry from taking a shower, pump the cream like base into your hand.  Half the size of the tip of your pinkie is all you need to use.  Anymore and you might get really greasy hair.  That would not look pretty;(  Rub all over the palms of your hands and the tips of your fingers, rake your hands through the bottom of your hair and make your way to the top of your head.  Wash hands to get any left over product on your hands off.  I wouldn't brush through your hair, I would just use your fingers to get through any messed up part of your hair.

Thank you lovelies!  I hope you guys enjoyed 'for the love of friday'.  If this is your first time stopping by, leave me a comment or follow me!  I'd be happy to have you aboard;) 


i did not get paid for advertising this Bed Head product.  i was just simply telling to you all how much i enjoyed it.  thank you!  *Allie*

one out of thousands of bible verses

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

dream sick

What do you think of dreams?  For me... well, I guess it goes up and down... like a roller coaster.  Sometimes I have the worst nightmares beyond belief, other times it's weird, like there's no sound to the dreams or it will be in black and white.  But there have been dreams that I have had lately... :)  That are weird but amazing at the same time.  I've been having a lot of dreams about this.... NOUN *haha* (you thought I was actually gonna tell you what I dreamt about)  And it's seems (after all the weirdness in the dream), when I reach this amazing part in my dream, I slowly start to wake up!  And I can feel myself drifting away from my dream.  I'm all like, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! 

So what I try to do is suck my self back into my dream that I was currently having.  But as usual... it never really works.  And it's weird, cause after you have that amazing dream, you have a warm, fuzzy feeling in the pit of your stomach.... almost as if your dream really happened?

Funny thing is, I'm ready for the next dream!  I want to see what happens with me and the NOUN!  And no, I won't share to you lovelies what my dreams are all about, but.... I just can't get the fuzziness out of my head or tummy;)  Am I making any sense to you at all?  Or do you know how I feel... with dreams and such?
