30 Day Blog Challenge : Day 7 : Favorite Movies

I have quite a few movies in my collection at the moment.  Quite a few Disney movies actually because for my 22nd birthday, Adam decided to give me (at least) one Disney movie a month for every month to my next birthday.  I'm pretty sure he went a little past my birthday because he was having fun surprising me with new Disney movies (for our future children of course...and because we love a good happy ending!)

But if I had to pick...my favorite movies would be...

THE WIZARD OF OZ
The Wizard of Oz (70th Anniversary Two-Disc Special Edition)

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (which I JUST got in the mail!!! :) :) :) )
Beauty and the Beast (Three-Disc Diamond Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo in DVD Packaging)

And several others...like....Fireproof, Princess Diaries, Aladdin, Mary Poppins, Toy Story (all of them!), oh and Enchanted.......

Fireproof The Princess Diaries (2-Disc Collectors Set) Aladdin (Disney Special Platinum Edition) Mary Poppins (45th Anniversary Special Edition) 
Toy Story Toy Story 2 Toy Story 3 Enchanted (Full Screen Edition)

You know, if I sat here for a while, I could think of a lot! :) I'd have to say a recent favorite is Despicable Me.
Despicable Me (Three-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy)
 :) We went to see that when my littlest sister came to town to stay with us for a week this summer and it was so good!

I have to stop writing now because I keep going back and adding more and more movies! :)

30 Day Blog Challenge : Day 6 : Something that makes you happy

So many things!
I'm pretty easy-going most of the time therefore pretty easy to please.

I'm going to brainstorm the simple things in life that make me happy. :)

Sunshine - everything is prettier in the sun!


Fall leaves - the smell & the sound :)


Creeks - they remind me of crawdad fishing with my sister, mom, & cousin when I was little.
That's actually a very big creek in the Smokey Mountains! :)


Crayons - the smell & the reminder of "coloring contests" with my Dad & sister when we were little. :)
Crayola 24 Ct Crayons

Smiles - for example, when you're walking somewhere (I'm thinking like when I'm shopping alone and it's not too busy out) and a random person gives you a genuine smile and says Hi. They don't know you, but they just made your day a little better! :) I try to be that person for someone else as often as possible.  Smiling at someone else can make your day better too! :)


Fireplaces - mostly the smell because it reminds me of campfires from when we used to go camping alllll the time, and now that I'm married to a Firefighter, it's the smell of my husband coming home from work (especially when he's gone for a full 24 hours and was more likely to go to a fire).


Woods - We used to always go walking in the woods when we were younger.  Dad would tell us we were going far away from home and make us think we'd walked a long way, when we essentially just walked down the street!


Sidewalks - speaking of walking down the street....Sidewalks always make me think of MamaRie & PawPaw and the walks we used to take to their house when we lived down the street from them! :)
Not a picture of a sidewalk, but let's pretend for a minute that we walked on the sidewalk to get to their house to eat those yummy suckers. :)


Rainbows - Like Dad said when we saw one the day of my Auburn tour, God doesn't put a rainbow up for nothing.  It's always a reminder of his Promises to us.  He's taken good care of me in this little college town the last six years! :)
I made it all the way through the list finding pictures on my computer or on Facebook...until I got to rainbow.  I guess that's my new mission...get a great picture of a rainbow! In it's place, here's a picture of me being happy! :)

30 Day Blog Challenge : Day 5 : Your Siblings

2 years 2 days and some hours after I was born, Rachel showed up! :)
We're quite a pair aren't we? :)
Since then, she's grown hair.  Lots of pretty pretty long curly hair that she straightens
...but it's super pretty when it's curly!! :)
I scoped out Facebook for some curly/straight pictures...here's what I found!


Aww and she pretty. :) And she makes funny faces too.  They make me laugh! :)

Really that would be both of my sisters make funny faces...here's a nice lead-in to Sarah! :)

10 years 3 months and 13 days (whoa, look at that..10+3=13 haha) after I was born (therefore, 8 years, 3 months, and 11 days after Rachel) Sarah showed up! :)

Look at that cute little baby!! :)

 


And now she's just too grown up!

Here are some more sisterly pictures through the years! :)
((Sorry Mom if I make you cry again!!! :) :) :) )

The day I moved to Auburn for the first time.

This girl loooves Auburn.


Aren't they just precious? :)


Rachel came to a rainy Auburn game with me! :)

And I went to watch her volleyball team in Auburn...

...and in Bham.

Rachel's HS Graduation.  I look rough, but she looks pretty! :)
