Christmas weather..in louisiana?? WHAT??

Hello darling, so let me tell you about the unusual things going on in Louisiana..so as everyone may know, last week some winter weather decided to grace the south..well Im used to hearing Texas and the top of Louisiana (Shreveport*) getting snow, but in no way was I expecting Baton Rouge to get snowy weather..that was unbelievable..and not only did we get snow, we received 8inches of that wonderful white stuff..YAY...
(trevon, hes our neighbor kid..making a snow angle, do you see how much snow that is??)
(this is in the back woods..spooky looking..I love it.)
(This is the street in our neighborhood..you couldn't even see it..)
(UH OH...watch out..I made a snowball..hehe)
(and this is my Favorite picture..it reminds me of Gotham City from batman)
But we were so happy..me and my parents were having snowball fights with the neighbors..haha and making snow angles..and then we decided to pullout a yard stick to measure the snow in my neighbors backyard, she doesn't have any trees in the backyard, so alot of snow was back there..and we measured up to 8inches of snowy bliss..how insane is that?? I love it..ohh and you wanna know the best part..my wonderful friend Collin was buried on Tuesday (when it was snowing..) so in my opinion (also to make myself feel better) I imagined that he brought the snow to us, kinda like saying hes ok..(yeah, Corny I know..but its comforting)..haha well I hope everyone has a wonderful time..Im going to do one more post before I leave (Im going to Disney world for Christmas with my family and my hunny..its going to be so much fun) and then Ill post pics from Disney..;p YAY!!!
au revoir darling..


Grief around the holidays..

Last night I was studying for finals, and getting so aggravated..when I got a call from Megan (my friend)..well I let it ring because I really had to study hard for this final..my phone alerted me to a message, so I listened and was in shock..she said "Hey girl, I know you were friends with Colin Campbell, so I figured you would know when his funeral is..so call me and tell me.."..I just starting sobbing uncontrolablly..and memories flooded my mind..
I started remembering how me and Colin would sit in gym class (he was a good friend of mine in high school) and we would have life talks, and pointless talks..he would make me laugh soo much..he was honestly (and Im not just saying this) the greatest friend anyone could ask for..
well I finally called Megan back (after calming down) and found out what happened..apparently he was going down the road and drifted over the middle line into the opposite lane and hit a Big truck head on..the other people are all fine, no injuries, but Colin was in critical condition and died on Sunday December 7...I know how much I miss him, and how much it honestly hurts to think that he is gone and never coming back...but I also keep thinking how hes parents and sisters have to feel..not only do they have to get over this shock, but it also happend around christmas time, which does not make this any easier..
well today I found out a little bit more about my dear sweet friend..not only was he the sweetest person while alive, but he is saving 4 peoples lives (while in heaven)..here is the story I found about him that proves my dear Colin Campbell is an angle:

Colin Michael Campbell
A resident of Denham Springs, Colin Michael Campbell, 20, passed away Sunday, Dec. 7, 2008, due to injuries sustained in an automobile accident. Through this he was able to save the lives of four people immediately with the donation of his organs. Though he was with us for only a short time, he will live on in our hearts and now in the lives of others for his love and generosity. Colin worked in flooring, but his true passion and work was as a musician/drummer with his band "Who By Fire," which recently recorded their first CD with Colin as drummer. He was also a talented writer of poetry and a lover of all animals. His care and love for all will be missed dearly. A memorial service will be held at Grace Believers Bible Church, 11020 Stanley Aubin Lane, on Thursday, Dec. 11, at 1 p.m., officiated by the Rev. Mark Rumfello. He is survived by his parents, Steve and Debra Campbell; two sisters who loved and adored him, Allison Allecia and Melissa Hope Campbell; two uncles, Jerry Wayne Campbell and Randy Cassady; aunt, Christine Marie Campbell Phillips; and many beloved cousins and friends. Preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Verl Calvin Cassady and Helen Ruth Cassady; paternal grandparents, Allie Harold Campbell Jr. and Jessie Christine Campbell; uncle, Ronald H. Campbell; and aunt, Terri Lynn Ewing. Arrangements by Seale Funeral Service Inc., Denham Springs.

Colin, you will be missed very much, and you were loved by many..R.I.P Collin



Happy Thanksgiving everyone..Hello darling, I hope you felled your tummy full today on turkey and other wonderful foods..I just got back home from my grandparents house (2 hours away from us, and out in the middle of the country)..it was a very nice thanksgiving lunch..but VERY different feel to it, because I have a large family (5uncles with at least 2-3 kids each)..so our holidays are always crazy and loud..with some very unusual but awesome people..:)
do you have unusual family?? Mine is very loud and festive..haha I love it though, I wouldn't want it any other way..
But so this holiday was very strange to me, because EVERYONE decided to visit there in-laws (which is only fair because everybody meets up with our family EVERY holiday) so were at my grandparents with only 5 people..but again, very lovely lunch..
hehe..sexy huh?? (I found this on google, and it made me laugh)
but we had a LARGE turkey, and green beans, and stuffing, and all the usual turkey day foods..but the one thing I LOVE LOVE LOVE that my grandmother makes, is sweet potato pie..YUUMMYY!!! it honestly is the highlight of holidays for me..haha
Is there a favorite food that you make/or have for the holidays?? I would love to get ideas on what to cook for thanksgiving..:)
so what are you thankful for this thanksgiving??
Im thankful for my wonderful family and friends, and of course for all my friends on here, you are absolutely wonderful!!! and Im thankful for my wonderful man, and everything that I have been blessed with in my life!!!
Well Im off to eat left over turkey..yummy..I will see you soon..ohh and I found this little cartoon on google, how funny is this??HAHA


Magical Afternoon...

Hello darling, first of all..I want to thank EVERYONE who visited my Halloween party..everyone was soooo sweet!!! Thank you for all the wonderful compliments..you really put me in the Halloween spooky mood..;p But I must tell you about the wonderful day today...I woke up to a Dreamy state of mind..I walked outside and looked up at the cloudy sky's....
and cooler weather (well cooler weather, compared to what it has been)haha...
well I decided to make a cup of peppermint tea (YUMMY!!)
and then I heard a song from outside..a kind of beautiful, eerie song..and I wonderful force was pulling me outside...I grabbed my tea and decided it was time for a fall adventure..
But I needed to find the magical key to unlock the "dreamy vision outside" (you see, they have "Normal keys" that lead to a "Normal destination", so I needed to find my "Magical Key" that leads to a "Magical destination"...hehe)YAY..I found the Magical key..now were off..I wanted to visit my beautiful secret cove...so as I walked in the dreamy state...As I kept walking, I realized even the trees are a little eerie looking..wouldn't you agree??Everything is just screaming HALLOWEEN (at least to me..)!!!Now I have to admit, I have something in common with one of my favorite bloggers..Ms. Vanessa..we both seem to have a fascination with fungi and baby moss..I found this beautiful green baby moss in between my stepping stones..I love it..I can't help but to smile when I see little green patches of moss..:)
So I finally made it to my secret cove, and relaxed with my wonderful tea and just admired the beautiful eerie look of today..ohh I must show you, we have an orange tree in the back yard, and they aren't really ready to eat yet, but I thought it was really cool looking..and the oranges are so heavy and full, that one of the branches looks like its just gonna fall over with fullness..isn't it lovely?? ok darling, well Halloween is only a week away, and Im obnoxiously excited about it..haha I have some last min. altering to do to my costume..it looks somewhat like this (minus the GIANT crown and gold embellishment..haha)

well Im off to finish Halloween stuff around my house..I will see you soon..have a lovely day..

I have my Pumpkin Candle buring, to fill the house with that lovely aroma..And the other night, I went outside and saw a FULL moon..I mean, it looked completely full..it was sooo awesome, so I tried taking a picture, but it didnt come out to well..haha ooppss..But then....I heard some rusteling in the tree tops and a hackel of laughs, so I hurried up and took another picture..and what do you know, it came out professional looking..;p (I found this on google too..)But beware, the witches are starting to come out and play..so do not get caught in the moonlight of a full moon, or you may become a frog, or bat..eeekkk...speaking of spooky things, I made a cute haunted house..hehe I love it..do you love it darling???I hope so...well its not exactly like this one, but I tried..;p

Halloween party!!!

Hey everyone, I'm super excited about the Halloween party at Vanessas blog ....

I just came back form Hobby Lobby, and bought alot of cute little Halloween things, ok darling, well Im gonna start decorating for tomorrow, check back soon for all the fun..(ps: we just got the glazes in yesterday, and fired our pottery, so now we will see how long it takes for her to let us glaze and then one lucky winner will get a cool handmade pottery sphere, made by, yours truely..Moi..;P have a great night, and watch out for funny shapes in the sky tonight..I heard a cackling last night, and took a snapshot of this...

(found on google) so keep your ears open, and your eyes peeled..you never know what is flying in the night sky...MMUUUHHHAAAHHH..::evil laugh::


Lots of news..crying, pottery, the surprise..EVERYTHING!!!

Hello darling, Im sooo very sorry its been soo long since Ive written to you, I have been so busy this week with school..so many test and paper due..Im so very sorry..ohh and I have some bad news, im not gonna have the surprise anytime soon..ill just let you in on the surprise because you will not be angry at me for not having it soon..;p Im making some awesome pottery in my pottery class, and I wanted to give a piece away, so Ive been working really hard at making it really pretty (this is the first time in my life that Ive EVER made pottery).. (picture found on google)
so Ive been working at it, re-doing it, and working on it some more..so we were supposed to glaze them, but my school still has not sent our class the glazes, so were just waiting around for the glazes to finish our pottery..so I swear I will still give one away, but I have no clue how long it will take, depends on my school..so I swear I did not forget, in fact it has been driving me nuts..haha but enough about that..I hope everyone is doing great, and getting in the Halloween spirit, I know I am..I bought a pair of orange and black stripped socks..I love them..they look something like these..

and I have been wearing them around like a little girl..haha (talk about get some stares..haha)..Speaking of all things HALLOWEEN, one of my favorite blogger, is hosting a Halloween party..you should definitely check it out..

Im so excited about it, she always has the best parties..

ohh before I forget..I have something to tell you..Ive been working on another little project, my very own "HowTo" website..right now I just have a video of how to style bangs, but Im going to put up alot of videos on how to do makeup correctly (Ive been in MaryKay cosmetics for 7 years now, and I grew up around makeup my whole life) so I know some tips and tricks..and after watching videos of girls pulling out eyelashes, and damaging hair, I decided it was my turn to give tips on doing makeup and hair (with out the damage..haha) so you can check me out on there too..ok so now that all of that is said..how was your week?? anything exciting happen while I was gone?? unusual maybe?? well today was one of those days where somethings happen and makes you feel insignificant..you know what I mean?? for example, I was driving to school early this morning (and I was late for class) and Im going down the street in downtown, when I looked over and saw a homeless man (not unusual to see in downtown) but when I really looked at him, he was walking fast and had his hands across his face, crying...it broke me heart, I actually teared up when I saw that..but I couldnt do anyting at that moment (I was down a one way street, that is super long) so reluctantly I had to keep driving..then it made me think, "Wow..there are so many problems in this world, I have NOTHING to complain about..so what that I have a tummy ache, so what that Im late, so what that Im having a bad hair day..there are people out there with serious problems.." so after feeling so guilty for not stopping and maybe giving him a hug, or just talk to him, I went to class, and we didnt even have class because our glazes are not in yet..haha so I just went home, and now Im here telling you all about it..so what would you have done?? would you have stopped?? given him a hug?? or just talk to him?? or would you have just given money?? I hate that I havent done something, I know I should have..but I have to stop beating my self up about it..so thats what I meant by insignificant feeling..so anyways, on a happy note, my darling little squirrel is going to be free in a week..Ohhh my goodness, what am I going to do with out my new little pet?? but he will do soo good in the real world..and Im kind of relived to let him be free..he seems to LOVE to chew on WIRES..ohh yeah, you heard me right, live wires..my lights, my laptop charger, EVERYTHING..its horrible, so he will have lots to chew on when he is released..but he will be missed..haha ok, I just found this picture on google, it is the cutest thing I have EVER seen...

Dont you just love it..you want to squeeze those chubby little cheeks..hehe ok darling, Im going to play with my little squirrel and do some homework..Ill come back soon..I promise..and I will keep you updated on the "surprise"..haha ok darling, take care, and tell me what you've been up to lately, I feel so left behind since I havent been here in awhile...


Hurricane, Adorable creature, Spooooky..Halloween..and much much more..

Well hello darlings..sorry it has been so long since I last spoke to you..wont you sit and have a cup of coffee...or pumpkin spice tea.. (reminds me of fall, which I love sooooo very much..found this pic. on google)

OK, so I want to hear all about what you have been doing while I was gone..did you have parties, did you make new beautiful art?? or did you relax and enjoy some cake or tea?? well let me tell you about what I have been up to for the last 2 weeks...It has been crazy over here..We are recovering from hurricane Gustav which roared through us and tore up the baton rouge area..brought down many trees, tore off alot of roofs, and just caused ALOT of trouble out here..Ill show you some pictures of the TALL lanky pine tree that came tumbling down on our roof..
ohhhh..yeah, you see how close it is to my car right??well can you see how close from this angle??? well we were VERY VERY lucky that it landed on our garage instead our actual house, but thank God we have that brick column, it held up the tree, and prevented it from crushing both cars under the garage..but one really good thing that came from this (actually two really good things)...(this is Gabby, which is Noels sister..and that is Gustav on top of her head..) AAANNNDDD...this is Ike..my darling..(dont worry, Im not gonna keep him locked up forever..hes learning how to jump right now, so in a couple of weeks, Im going to set this little man free)
But is was the strangest thing..one of them was in a puddle of water, under my car..and my neighbor heard something squeaking so she ran over and looked under my car, and saw a little squirrel..drenched, cold, and scared...he looked into her eyes for a few mins, and then ran up her arm and she ran to our door and gave him to us...(that was Gustav)..now the story of Ike..my brother was in the back yard looking at the tree that fell..(he is 6'4'') a very tall guy..and he was a baby squirrel running towards him, so he bent down and put out hes hand..after about 3 mins..the squirrel did the same thing..he just ran up my brothers arm and unto his shoulder..so he gave Ike to me..and now Im taking care of the little darling, until hes completely ready to go into the wild...hes finally getting enough confidence to explore and run up things, and yesterday he started jumping..which is a wonderful sign..so that is the story of the wonderful little gifts that we received from such a horrible storm..:)
Ohh..let me tell you about my art day...sooo..last Saturday (while our electricity was still out, yeah..it was out for a week) we went to the LSU museum of art, and I found some awesome paintings..let me show you a few (I caught a few of this lovely paintings, before the security guard started yelling at me..haha)..this was my favorite piece..
Dont you just love them??? ohh the last on, with the clock ::right above:: is actually a 3d art, but I couldn't capture that with my camera..but I fell in love with all of those beautiful pieces of art..
Speaking of things that I love love love...Im sooo obnoxiously excited that fall is right around the corner..the crisp breeze, the changing colored leaves, the warm clothes, the pumpkin pies..apple pies..ohh and one of the most fantastic holidays ever..HALLOWEEN!!!!! YAYAYAYAYAY!!! don't you absolutly love fall?? or are you more of a spring type, or maybe summer??? Im a fall, and winter person, myself...;p but one thing I fell head over heels with was...the fall issue of CountryHome magazine..it had Martha Stewart halloween decorations..it was sooo beautiful, and spooookkkyyyy...

ohhh doesn't this put you in the halloween mood??? I want to watch scary movies now..hhmm...I found this great website that has all kind of scary movies to watch on halloween..check it out...I have to watch a movie (I've never seen, or even heard of before now) its called "Suspiria"..have you seen it, is it worth watching?? do you want to know something soo funny?? I love love love watching scary movies, but I hate that I get soo scared afterwards..you see, I have a WILD imagination..I swear that I seen someone in the hall, or I heard something from the closet..ect..you know what I mean?? WILD..haha but some of my all time favorite classic Halloween movies are...

The Adams Family..

The Nightmare Before Christmas..

Hocus Pocus..(I love this movie)

And of course..Beetlejuice...

Soo..which brings me to my question..what are your favorite movies for Halloween?? I would love to hear..I plan on celebrating Halloween 2 weeks before, with all kind of good Halloween movies..so I need some great movies..do you like the gorey movies, maybe the cartoon Halloween movies?? which ever ones, I would love to hear from you..
