"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be."

-Shel Silverstein




I'm so excited that Spring Break is here! I was really burned out from school (5 tests in 2 weeks...I think they were trying to kill me to be quite honest). But this weekend already has been pretty good! Although I didn't really do anything for my birthday yesterday, I will tomorrow with an old-fashioned slumber party! YE-AH! Plus today, I was able to go over to my grandparents house to see them. My grandma and I share the same birthday (pretty exciting!), so we gave her her card and I was able to see my grandpa and aunt :) After that though was awesome because I always love spending time with family. Although, I do have to admit that I get stressed out when 1. I have to make a decision about where to go out to eat and 2. when I think about how much money my parents have to spend to take all 7 of us out (thanks Mom! Love you :) ) AND thanks Mom for my delicious cookie cake!

the best kind of cake ever made.

This weekend was also productive because I finished two things I've been working on for a while. First off, I finished the fifth Harry Potter! YAY! I really really liked it, but I don't quite know if it beats the third. PLUS, Sara informed me that in addition to her reading a Jodi Picoult and Nicholas Sparks book because I'm reading all of the Harry Potters, I could also add a Stephen King book to the list. Now, I have to decide on The Green Mile or The Shining (I'm currently leaning toward The Shining). Second, I finally finished my painting. I did the background a couple of months ago, so I'm glad that I can hang it up now and not look at the canvases sitting on my floor. The painting though, is very plain, which for some reason is what I think most of my paintings are.

the flowerish thing i added (i dont quite know what you would call it)

how it will hang on the wall (when i pick a place)

Today, I received my first blog award :D It was the Happy 101 award from Chelsea Rebecca at TRIUMPHS and Blunders of a KOOKY Gal! Thanks :) I, too, am happy when you update! All of your posts are hilarious and always cheerful!
