of tea cups, sunshine and egg heads

Tea + steam = entertainment on afternoons when I don't really want to be doing schoolwork.

I don't have a green thumb, in fact quite the opposite, but I love having plants all over my room. It makes me happy, and they also feel empty spaces. win-win. 

I recently moved upstairs into my older brothers room. For the first time in my entire life, I have my own room and it is kind of weird. But a good kind of weird. It's been nice not having to worry about waking the girls by staying up late, but it was strange sleeping in a room all by myself. (Especially that night the power didn't work and the nightlight didn't work. :)

I'm gonna do something with these Starbucks frap jars someday. I keep telling myself that, and now there sitting on my window sill begging me to do something with them. Maybe some chalkboard vases, yes? 
I've been trying to start wearing outfits that incorporate these shoes. ^ I think they're adorable.

Books are a necessity, which is why they are sitting in stacks all over my room. :)

My siblings made these adorable egg heads. You break just the tops off the egg shells when you use them, and then fill them with dirt and grass seed. It doesn't take long for the grass/hair to grow, and they are positively adorable. 

They's so cute, yes? I dare you to make one. (Those stands are made out of an egg carton, btw)

     Over the last two weeks, I kept trying to post. Trying to write something filled with personal, raw, from my heart stuff, but I had lost my words for a while. I’m trying to do a writing challenge, (with a bunch of other people online,) right now, (write 100 words for 100 days,) and sometimes that takes all my words and then some. J

     So this is spontaneous, and mostly just little random stuff that make me happy. And I guess, now that I think about it, little random stuff that makes me happy (and laugh) is what really makes up my life. Just as my mom, she’ll agree with that. I can be the most random person that you’ll ever meet, flitting from one funny thing I found online to the next, and then describing something I saw or read. It’s the way I work, and I’m okay with that now. (Kudos to you if you get that reference. My family watched that movie over 25 times since my older brothers and I were little. It’s my dad’s favorite.)
This year, I can’t wait for spring to arrive in all her glory. Most other years, I didn’t want spring to come early, because when she does, her cousin Summer is right behind her, and I don’t usually enjoy Summer all that much. But this year, I am so ready for spring and summer and wearing flip-flops and light clothing. I don’t exactly ever bundle up, even when it’s really clod, and my mom is always telling me to go put socks and sweaters on, but it will be so nice to just walk out of the house with a light outfit, and flip flops and be perfectly comfortable.
      And this year I am excited for Spring to arrive because on Monday, March 4th, 2013, (sorry.) I am starting DRIVERS ED, and that’s practically spring. (my family always considers March 1st the beginning of spring. Because we’re weird. And crazy. the end.) I am so excited to be able to drive. It’s like, well, when you can drive, you can go places and do things. Out of chocolate, great, I’ll just run to the store… I am dying to take pictures and can’t find inspiration here, fine, we can fix that, let’s grab a friend and go for a drive. And maybe I’ll even meet someone for coffee for the first time too. That would be awesome, eh, Hannah, (hint hint) :)

     What are you looking forward to this Spring/Summer, and are you getting warm weather, or does it still seem like winter there?



  1. Haha! That would be awesome :) I think you should pour a fourth of your excitement into your teacup and send it to me to drink, so I can be excited too!!! I just want my license, and am thinking of driver's ed as the torturous means to that end :P

  2. I just got my license yesterday! It was sooooo fun to be finally driving myselve into town to do stuff:)

    Have fun in drivers ed, Becca!


  3. Oh, you got your license, Rachel! That's awesome, congratulations :)


I read and appreciate every comment. :)
