The Death of Me (or Julius Caesar)

I had the opportunity to go and see a play put on by the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. Although, I really wanted to see Oklahoma's. ;)

Of course, I think I died instead of Julius Caesar.....

Dear ASF,

What does a camera bag look like? Please stop and tell me that there are no pictures allowed with a 15 mile radius of your grounds. Otherwise, I would not have taken my camera in much less, taken it out in the theatre. And your docents wouldn't have had to attack me and told me it was "stupid to take my camera out".  Thank you!

Dear ASF,

Please tell me that cell phones are not permitted in the theatre 10 minutes prior to starting time. Otherwise, I wouldn't have had to go to the bathroom to use my phone. Thank you!

Dear ASF,

Please make sure you understand that we are trying to get out of the theatre but, there is a lot of people so you move slowly. Otherwise, you wouldn't have had to push us out of the auditorium. Thank you!


Dear Docent-who-was-so-kind-to-me,

Thank you for telling me nicely that I couldn't have gum in the theatre. I simply forgot to spit it out.


Hope this is a helpful guide in case you decide to go. :)

Day 9 - Your Beliefs

Here is a link to a statement of faith I follow. They do a much better job then I could do. :)

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but, have everlasting life." - John 3:16

"Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." - John 14:6

My Valentine(s)

*dreamy sigh*

Its that day where you celebrate love.

Love of all kinds.

 This kind

That kind.

And you sing songs about

This Love

That Love.

To me, Valentines is not about spending a superfluous amount on gifts or candy its about spending the day with the people you love.

And that's just what I did.

Welcome to my world.

You see that little guy?? 

That's my Valentine. 


And the rest of them! 

I had the privilege of kidsitting them on Valentines Day. 

We had bleeding hearts. (heart-shaped pasta and sauce)

All gone! 

We had a scavenger hunt.

And we made Mom a card. 

It was wonderful! 

Magically, I got the youngest one to go to sleep in his own bed. Yeah, I'm a Miracle Worker! :)

Movie Monday: Valentine's Day Special

Hello All!! I hope you are having a wonderful start to the week! According to this post, I am supposed to be telling y'all some of my favorite things for Valentines Day. So, here I am. :) 

I, personally, LOVE this movie. See for yourself. :) 

You can find Plugged In's review of the movie here.

Plugged In mentions a thing or two that I did not see or hear in the movie. (ex. The lady in the movie says "make love" instead of outright saying it like Plugged In portrays it.) Also, I think boys could careless about the movie. Its definitely a girls night out movie. :)

I would like to say that I would NEVER review/advertise a movie that is against my beliefs.

Basically, Sophie travels to Italy with her fiance and finds a letter on a wall in a courtyard from 1957. This courtyard is where women of all ages go to write letters for help for their love life to Juliet of "Romeo and Juliet". 

She then finds a network of Juliet Secretaries writing letters back to the women who left them. And so, she joins them and responds to the letter. Thus, begins a journey of adventure and love.

Its a cute story and I hope you will enjoy watching it! 

And maybe one day, you will find your Romeo! :)

Have a Fun and Happy Monday Y'all!!

The Purpose of Valentines Day

Valentines Day approaches soon. Which means, all the guys in the world are franticly searching for a place to hide take a girl for a date. So, I want to pose the question.....

 "What purpose does Valentines Day serve?"

That question has puzzled many minds since who knows when. So, I did some research.

And this is what I found.....

It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). (Wikipedia)

{And in case your interested, a summary of the founding of the holiday.

A brief history:
In the 5th century AD, Pope Jalacius called the holiday Saint Valentines Day. (It had originally started as a festival honoring Lupa, the she wolf that nursed Romulous and Remus, and Fawnus, the god of fertility.) One of the many Valentines that lived, lived in the 3rd century under the reign of Claudius. The Emperor had banned marriages because he wanted the men in his army to forget about love and focus on fighting. Father Valentine disobeyed the order and performed wedding ceremonies in secret. Claudius soon found out, arrested him, and had him put to death in a timely manner. He reportedly fell in love with the jailer's daughter and wrote her a note the day he was executed. It was signed "From Your Valentine".   

And thats the story.}

So, I think it best to start finding a Valentine for someone you love. Whether it be a neighbor, a family member, a friend, or a spouse. Just to show some love for someone this Valentines Day. 

I will. :) 

*side note: I will be sharing some craft and recipe ideas in the coming days leading up to Valentines....So, stay tuned!! :) and.....our Mac's hard drive needs to be replaced so it will be a couple of days! ;)
