Finally got a picture of a Buttercup!!!!!!!!

Sorry this one is a bit blurry..... :(

The wind was really blowing, so this was my only good one of the full buttercup.

I LOVE this one!!!!!!!

No, I did not take my "name" from the flower "buttercup," but I do love the flower! I actually took the name from the main actor in Princess Bride, her name in the movie is Princess Buttercup. :D

You are special!!!

I found this on one of the forums on the Rebelution website. :D I thought you would all enjoy reading it :

"Consider a painting by Rembrandt or a bronze by Degas or a violin by Stradivarius or a play by Shakespeare. They all have great value for two reasons. One, their creators were masters and second, they are few in number. But there is more than one of each of them. On that reasoning, you are the most valuable treasure on the face of the earth, for you know who created you and there is only one of you. Never, in all the billions of humans who have walked this planet since the beginning of time, has there been anyone exactly like you. Never, until the end of time, will there be another such as you. You are the rarest thing in the world."

Always remember, YOU are special!

Come What May, Movie Review


The new movie Come What May is so good!!!!! It is awesome! I was one of the three winners on the giveaway on the Pajama School blog. And we have already watched it twice! It is about abortion and doing what is right even when it is hard. It truly is a great movie to see. I definitely recommend getting it! To promote the movie, click here.

So busy... monthly resolutions update

Hey Y'all! I have been pretty busy the last couple days.... so I have an excuse to say that I missed cleaning my room last night.... lol. Actually, I have been pretty naughty.... I have not had my room clean on Friday nights for a long time. :(

But, with my Bible reading, I have been getting up at 6:30 am, (I just got an alarm clock!!!! YES!!!!) and reading my Bible (in the quiet, VERY RARE) for an hour. It has really been great! I am really enjoying it! I did not get up at 6:30 this morning though, I got to bed about two hours after I usually do, so I was soooooooooo tired! I just finished Luke; and, if you did not already know, I am going in order through the New Testament. So I have already finished Matthew, Mark, and Luke. :D

If you made any resolutions, how are they going? I hope you are doing better than me! :D
