Time to get back to blogging!

Well, I'm watching Julia & Julie and it just encouraged me to blog, just like Julie. Except my passion is not cooking, which actually, I have thought about starting. My mom loves to cook, I sometimes wonder why she didn't go to cooking school, but she told me it was because she didn't want to. I understand that.
I've also thought about starting a different blog for a couple of my other passions. As you know, this one is about fashion. My mom doesn't really understand my passion for fashion. She's always telling me to save my money and that I've got too many clothes as it is, (I completely understand about the money deal because of the times, but I shop at cheap-ish stores with cute clothes). Well, what about Julie? She spent a lot of her money on pots and pans and food and spices! My mom spends her money on flower seeds and garden tools (which gardening is her passion, along with many others). I LOVE to buy different kinds of clothes and mix and match just to see what will go with what and what wont. I love to find unique little tinker-tinks and put them with the outfits I have put together. I also love to get on websites and save the clothes and put the clothes I like together.
But fashion is NOT my only passion. Here are my list of passions:
- Art
- Fashion
- Architecture
- Medicine
- Singing/Music
- Ghosts
- Reading/Books
What are some of your passions? What inspires you? Does your parents understand your passions? I would love to hear from you!

This may be a short post, but I'm going to talk about all the fun things that have happened this week!
Well, a few not-so-fun things was that I had to take my exams Wednesday and Thursday, but I did good on them, and I am done for the year!
But last night, Troy and I went to see Kenny G and he was AMAZING! He held a note for almost five minutes! His longest record is 45 minutes!

And today my dad, Troy, and I went to a community center to help out with the less-fortunate people. My friend and her mom invited us! It was so much fun, and the kids were so sweet! My dad was Santa Clause too :D

You know what I absolutely just love?

One of my blog buddies and I were talking about how Ohio was a haunted place, and that just got me thinking about some pretty neat haunted places I want to go to. I am nuts over the paranormal and gorgeous old buildings.
Here is one picture from Ohio! Lancaster, Ohio, to be exact. It's called the Mudhouse Mansion. I just love Second Empire architecture! If I had to choose what kind of house I could live in, a Victorian house (especially Second Empire) would be my first choice!

Next, we have an old insane asylum (I love these. They are just so spooky looking, and the architecture is breath-taking!) It's called The Danvers State Hospital in Danvers, Massachusettes. It was recently turned into an apartment complex (Avalon Danvers, and yes, it's very strange). They kept 2/3 of the whole building, the administration and a little bit of both sides of the wings. It is a Kirkbride building, so it had a main administation building, and 2 curve-like wings off to each side. Kind of like a bat.

Another old insane asylum I consider very pretty is The Buffalo State Hospital in Buffalo, New York. It is also a Kirkbride, and it is Richardsonian Romanesque architecture named after the architect Henry H. Richardson. I absolutely love the two towers at the top of the main administration building.

Ok, ok. I know, enough with the old insane asylums, but this is my favorite too! Also a Kirkbride, it's The Cherokee State Hospital in Cherokee, Iowa. It opened in 1902 and is still around today as a correctional center (or penitentary) and a museum.

Here is a building in St. Thomas, Canada called the Alma College. It was destroyed in a fire a long time ago, but I can't remember exactly when. If any of you have seen Orphan, you may recognize this building. It was used as the mental hospital Saarne Instituut. This building struck me as being so gorgeous I had to find it.

Well, these are my favorite buildings so far. If any of you find any other buildings that you just love me, tell me! I love architecture, and I have considered being an architect. I especially have a thing for old architecture. GORGEOUS <3>

Happy Monday!

Well, maybe not so happy. I kept waking up last night because I kept getting sick, and on top of that, I woke up not feeling so well either. Pointless to say, I didn't go to school. But I didn't go back to bed right away either. I helped my dad with some of his work, I read a little bit, made lunch, and then took a nap. It was a pretty good day, but then I got the biggest scare! UTK's application deadline is tomorrow! I turned in my application, one of my teacher recommendations, and an ACT report request is on it's way right now. But then I learn that the transcripts have to be in by tomorrow too, which I haven't sent off! I'm so scared now. I really want to go because they have the major I want (psychology), and my boyfriend goes there! It would be so perfect! Wish me luck please :)
Also, one of my friend's (her name is Rosa) mom has Lyme Disease. She could possibly become disabled from this, so please keep her in your prayers. Very sad :'(
I just got done reading The Taming of The Shrew, and boy am I glad! That book made me so furious. Women are not play things, we are human. We should all be treated equally, man or woman. The only people we should look up to as our guide is our elders and God.
Well, for the better part, I was browsing through a little site called and found some of the cutest stuff! I will share them here :D
This is pricey, but it would look good in the middle of a holiday dinner table!
(If you want to cheat, go to Hobby Lobby and get an adorable holiday vase and lots of greenish, redish, fallish flowers and put them in the vase. You can also get wrapping paper and wrap it around the vase for more of a personal touch if you like!)

Holiday Vase - 110.00 (yeah, sorry about that :/)

Holiday Red - 108.00

White Hydrangea - 85.00

Not so holidaish, but cute!
Emporium Candles - 48.00 ea

Emporium Soaps - 19.50 ea

Petit Script Plates - 22.00 ea

And for those who just love everything French-related:
French Envelope Boxes - 22.00 ea

Wow, it's been a week!

Hey ya'll! I am so sorry it took me a WEEK to post another blog article. Haha, and I haven't even really been that busy this week. Tuesday my mom and I went prom dress shopping, and I saw the PERFECT dress! It's a bright blue color, with floral and glittery designs on the torso. It's big and poofy, just how I wanted it! All I would have to do is adjust the straps because they are kinda big, but other than that, it's perfect! Also as I was shopping with my mom, I found some really cool Christmas ideas to give people. I wont post them here, just in case those people happen to visit my page. So, how was everybody's Thanksgiving? Mine was great, I went to my uncle and aunt's house. All of my cousins were there, and my dad since they are all on my dad's side of the family. My mom was with her side of the family, lol. My dad and I went to see A Christmas Carol, and oh my gosh, I love that movie! Disney does such a great job on their movies. Also, I saw New Moon, and was OK. I liked the first one a lot more than I did New Moon. I personally still love Edward. Just the passion in his eyes when he looks at Bella just makes my heart melt <3>

Anyways. to get on track, today is Lusty Saturday! Everything here is from Charlotte Russe :)

My ACT Scores!!

I just took the ACT again a few weeks ago and I found out I made a 22 :) I'm very excited! Also, our little town has something we like to call Host of Chistmas Past, and I already started my Christmas shopping! I bought my dad, my mom, my best friend (Gabby), and Troy something.
Also, there's a prom dress shop on the square and I tried on this gorgeous dress! It was yellow and had a lot of silver sparkles on it. was too long! I am 4' 10'' and prom dresses almost always have to have super-high-heels or tapering. Oh well, as long as it's pretty and looks good on my body!

So after school yesterday, my dad and I decided we were going to do some errands in a nearby city. So after those errands, we went to the mall, which I haven't been to in awhile because I'm always broke, lol. I don't have a job, but I work for my dad over the summer, so he is basically how I accumulate my cash. I did buy a few things, but this in particular is what I have a picture of. It's from Aeropostale :)

They also had an orange and pink one which I also loved, but this one was my favorite.
Only 24 more days until University of Tennessee Knoxville's application deadline is due! I have filled the application out, I have two of my teachers to do recommendations for me; all I need now are my ACT scores, my personal statement, and the money to send the paperwork off! Yay!
Wish me luck!
Also, there's an Alabama vs. LSU game today! May the best team win!

Hey ya'll! I'm back!
So, I didn't go to the Halloween party because of some unhappy settlements, but it's all right now!
My mother's birthday was on Novemer 1, and I bought her one of those Snuggies (royal blue)! They seem so comforitable, and she loves it! :)

Also, I would like to mention about A Blonde Ambition's month of November giveaway!

The rules are on her page of course, and you can get a wonderful prize of Philosophy bath gel! But you can only choose one, and you get to choose out of these great flavors!

Also, Saturday night (Halloween), my dad and I went to see Paranormal Activity!! So frightening, I'm never playing with a ouija board :O

Well, that's all for today! Buh-bye!
