My new blog

  Dearest Followers,

So some of you may have noticed that I am a little obsessed with doing my hair. See, that in every picture I have posted on this blog, I have had a different hairstyle. 
Actually, I really enjoy creating hairstyles on-the-go or when I have any spare time. Spare time, when I am not reading anyway. :) So, I have created another blog where I will be giving tutorials on how to do hair from movies such as Pride and Prejudice and Anne of Green Gables. And any other older movies that have stunning hairstyles.
So here is the link and please go and follow .... ;)

Love you,

  I've been tagged by Miss Elizabeth of The Country Handmaiden. Thank you, dear!
So here are her questions.

If you were to go one place in the world, where would it be?  So hard. I've always wanted to tour England, but I would want to go see Paris as well.  
What is your favorite colour?   Purple
What do you usually do with your hair on the day-to-day?  Oh, I usually put it in a quick bun or I do braids. It depends. I love doing hair so I usually do something different every day.

Do you have a favorite hobby?  Yes! Writing stories
Where would you rather get lost in: a craft store, or a book store?   This is the hardest question yet. But I would say that it would be both. :) Though the book store is very hard to pass up getting lost in

11 things about myself:

  1. I would love to go stand by and look out the window that Lizzy Bennet did in the BBC Pride & Prejudice and say, "And to think all this could be mine." Even though if could not be. LOL!
  2. I would love to paint a bird with water colours.
  3. My cats name is George ... said with a French ascent. I know this is not about me, but I feel like my kitty cat is part of me I love him so much. 
  4. I love to build forts in the woods with my siblings. :)
  5.  I share a room with my two younger sisters and I love it
  6. Red hair and freckles are so pretty and I want them. Really!
  7.  The first time I watched My Fair Lady was a few months ago and I enjoyed in very much. The quotes... I love them. The huge hats... I adore them. And Eliza Doolittle's "Oahhhhhh" is fully hilarious.
  8. If I could live in any place in the world it would be Ireland.     
  9. I just got my first pare of really nice boots and I am so in love with them!
 10. I love the mountains ... to death.

One of my favourite movies. Really. 
"Its crazy, I know."

Laughs. Out. Loud.

I'm so witty!!!!!

Yes, indeed.

AHHHHHH! Don't you just luV this scene to pieces.

This guy plays in EVERYTHING!!! Literally. 
I just realised he is Legalos (from Lord of the Rings ... all three of them.

And he plays Prince Albert on The Young Victoria.
And of course Wickam on Pride and Prejudice.

Best Friends Forever

  So many people take that phrase for granted.
 So will say that that person they are speaking about is their BFF and then when something happens to maybe hinder the relationship ... they never make things right.
  God willing, I will never do that.

 So here is a little thing I made up about what I think my friendship is with my BFF. :)

        Friends can be made every day.
          But true friends are rare to find, indeed.
        A true friend is someone who will make you laugh.
          Who will make you smile when things are bad.
         Who stick by you when you need them most.
           Who listen to your problems patiently ...
         And give their advise to you.
          Someone who will eat a whole Hershey's bar with you ... and get sick with you!  (true story)
         A person who is not afraid to to help you out of an embarrassing situation.
          A person who will joke that she(or he) will ride their bike to your house and spend the night     
         there ... even thought they joked that would throw your little sis out of her bed. :)

   I think (no, I believe!) that Marissa is my BFF. Because she has done all these things. So please go and join her blog here. She is awesome! :)

 Just had the best time ever. Yep! Our fall party had just ended and I am so in pain. :) My feet hurt more than anything. LOL!

Wednesday, October 10, 2012


  I am so cold! And that is so great.

 Fall is officially here and its time to crack out the s'mores! The hot chocolate! The warm fires! The awesome Christian Family Fellowship my parents host almost every fall. :)

  I have been awaiting this week for I don't know how long and it is here. It is so great to wake up and have to put on a sweater. Anyways.

  Our family and the Ballenger family (their blog is here) have made and directed a film for this event and all of the kids and teenagers stared in it. It is really fun to be able to see your cousins "all the time"
while you are filming a short , crazy film.

  And my BFF (in "real life"), Marissa, stars as the grandma. Yes, she is my age, but she did an awesome (cool) job. It is true gal!  *sends kisses to yah*

  So when we were filming this little movie I was able to get some great pics from "Behind the Scenes" stuff. And videos. So I am going to share them with you in this post. Here is the overall plot of the story:

  The dad (my dad =) ) and kids (our family and the Ballengers) are in their van going to Grandma's house. Earlier, dad got a call from Grandma. She said she was loosing her farm and she needed help.
  But on their way to her farm they pop a tire! What are they gonna do? :)
 They walk all the way to Grandma's farm of course! All night to be exact. 
  When they finally get there, Grandma meets them and gives them brownies (this was great part to film! LOL!). Then all the kids go out and dad talks to Grandma about her trouble. Turns out she is having trouble with her payments and the like, and she is going to loose her farm. Dad promises it help our as much as he can.
  Then he asks where he can possibly get a new tire and some gas. (you have to know that, Grandma, is old-fashioned and does not even have electricity and running water). (plus she lives out in the country, away from everybody)
  But as dad is leaning that he may have to walk to the closest filling station, two farmhands walk in. Celtis (the bad guy and the Ballenger's dad) and Billy-Bob (my brother). These guys tell dad that there is a filling station about three days form the farm.
  Dad and Grandma walk out to get the "bike" and Dad realises it is a rusty, flat tire kid bike. So he rides off to get the tire, leaving the kids in the hands of Grandma.
  That night Grandma tells the kids about a chicken that lays a golden egg every year! She tells them that when you get this hen and if you sing a special song, the hen will lay the egg. And the hen will lay in three days!
  Grandma is counting on that egg to  save her farm.
 But nobody knows that Cletis and Bill-Bob are outside the window listening! They sneak of to plan their evil plot of getting the egg. 
  But the kids see them as they sneak away. They follow he rotten hands and hear them plot. They sneak of to the other kids and they do a little plotting themselves. 

  Then the rest is the kids playing practical jokes on the farmhands trying to hold out until dad gets back. But they get caught by the bad guys, and dad (of course) swoops in to save the day!

  And the egg is laid and the farm saved!

 Slightly cheesy but very fun. And why do I think of Tangled when I think of the "special song". "Flower gleam and glow..." never mind.

  So here are some behind the scene pictures. Hope you enjoy.

 Billy-Bob fetching the...


                 What a joke!

Billy-Bob doing workouts.

There is always a smarter bad guy... in this case I would
say there are 2 dumb bad guys.  

Grandma and her "son" having a laugh. It is so weird 
to have my BFF call my dad "son"! LOL!

Filming. The lovely young lady in the pink top is our 
second camera man. Or should I say lady. :P

Filming again.

 The laughs never end about that bike. This is a great blooper picture.

Instructions and how to execute them.

Grandma sick of being Grandma for two hours.

Cletis being silly and Billy-Bob going like:
"What is this wall doing here...!"

Great! Billy-Bob has spotted me.


Yes, it looks like Cletis is beating his comrade in crime. I think he was just warming up
and trying to get the bad guy feeling going. I think...  I think.

Sneaky kids.

It is so weird having my brother stare at me that way.

  Resting after a long day of filming and watching other actors act out their parts.
  You would never know how hard it is to film a short film unless you actually did it. But nevertheless it was so fun and we all had a boll.

Our director playing camera man.

Resting... again.

 This was one of my favourite scenes. Apart from the one where my dad rode that kid "bike" down the rode.
  It was supposed to be that there was this chicken that got really mad every time anyone got near her. (yes, this part alone made the rating PG).
   So the kids got the bad guys to go into the barn with the chicken.
  It was so FUNNY!

Even Billy-Bob is getting sick of Cletis. LOL!

Lily(right) not liking the world and Marissa having the greatest time ever.

Checking out old scenes.

The golden egg. I did two because you never know when one is gonna go ...
cRaCk! I was in charge of this department.

"We are all tied up and cannot get out...!"

"Pity that."

The "bad" hen.


Left to right: Hannah(ballenger), Lily(day), My dad(little Beeda on his shoulders),
Noah(day), Allison(ballenger). Seth(day. the little guy), Me!(blue top), Marissa(ballenger),Sarah(day), Josiah(day. or Billy-Bob), Emelie( ballenger. pink top), Chase, Jessica(ballenger with little Blake in her arms),
and the Ballenger's dad... or Cletis.

The cast and crew! What a day of filming.
