Random Things I Love

Well, I finally got online with grand plans and then remembered that our internet has run out so I can't upload any pictures.  So you all get words...yay!! XP

I present to you a lovely list of random things I love.  The end.
(ps. In no order whatsoever besides whatever came to my mind first.)

1.} Origami Cranes
     I read a little chapter book quite a while ago about a little girl in Japan; she died from the radiation left by atomic bombs dropped in WW2.  While she was in the hospital she set out on a goal to fold 1,000 paper cranes; believing they would save her.  She died before completing them, but her classmates folding the remaining few hundred birds and buried all 1,000 with her.  Her name escapes me at the moment, but she has a statue memorial to her in Japan.  After I read that I learned how to make cranes and have since made over 100 of them.  I started hanging them from my ceiling but never got around to hanging the rest.  I have a couple buckets filled with them sitting around my room.

2.} Planners, Notebooks, etc.
     If you take me too an office supply store, I will be your bestie forever.  I walk into an isle with notebooks and I don't care if I have absolutely no reason for another notebook...I want one.  Or a million.  The feeling of starting over with a fresh, clean, blank notebook will neeever get old.  Never.

3.}  The steamed-milk chocolate latte at the local coffee shop.
      Okay, so there is this coffee shop that is, actually, in the lobby of a rug warehouse, BUT regardless of it's location, it has DA BEST coffee EVER.  Organic coffee shots mixed with steamed milk and chocolate flavoring....Mama mia. (Mama mia: is actually Italian for "my Mother," deprived from latin's, "Mamma mea."  How it because a saying I don't know...)  Anyway, the coffee is amazing.  You know how coffee or hot chocolate is always the best in those first couple sips through the whipped cream? Like, the whip cream mixes with it?  But then it's usually all gone and you have to drink the rest whipped cream less?  Well, the steamed milk makes this latte all creamy and wonderful THE ENTIRE CUP.  Like, imagine a new layer of whipped cream constantly.  Yah.  It's totally awesome.

4.} Converse Sneakers & High Heels
      I know you are only supposed to be one or the other; a high heel girl or a sneaker girl. Well, unfortunately for society, I disagree with them about just everything; including this.  Haha.  Anyway, I love my sneakers because they are comfortable, durable, and adorable.  No matter what the weather, what the occasion, what activity; whatever.  They got my covered.  High heels because;
1- They made me taller. *Short girl victory dance*
2- Instantly make any dress/outfit fancier.
3- I just like dressing up and looking pretty.  I love me some red lipstick.

5.} I Love Lucy
    I have actually asked a good number of teenagers and only a couple have even heard of Lucille Ball, or I Love Lucy!  I find that unbelievable....it's like, not ever have heard of Superman, or Shakespeare or somethingAnyway, I love I Love Lucy.  From the 50's styles, to the humor, to seeing how much and how little life has changed.  Do yourself a favor and get a hold of some I Love Lucy.  You will not regret it.

Well, I hope you all enjoyed this rambling, picture-less post.  I'm sorry to be abandoning you so much this summer, but life is soo busy and I am going to be out there enjoying it.  I am going to camp next week, then I'm home for a week, and then I go to my bestie's house for 5 days!  =D  Whoop!  Then I'm helping with VBS, then we are traveling to my grandparents to possible get another dog...long story. Plus summer reading programs, work, school, chores... Summer "break" for sure. lol
Then August will be upon us.

Life goes oh so quickly, darlings.  Don't waste it.

  1. I love these things too. I'm absolutely obsessed with planners and notebooks as well: for as long as I can remember. It's weird.

  2. Me! Over here! I'm totally obsessed with notebooks!
    I watch a lot of old tv shows so I do like I Love Lucy although I prefer Adam-12, Macgyver or Columbo. Those. Are actually a lot newer than I Love Lucy, huh?

  3. I agree with you 100% on all of these. NOTEBOOKS! Once time I went to a cute little stationery store which had so many cool notebooks, little or big or plain or decorative and it was heaven. :')

  4. Someday you need to do a tutorial on how to make a crane, I have read several tutorials but I always get confused near the end. =/ There are never enough notebooks in this life. =D I'm with you on the shoes. XD If it helps any, I know about I Love Lucy and I have watched a couple episodes. =)

    I hope you have an amazing time at camp and with your friend! =D

  5. Oooo, I love notebooks! I've never actually finished writing in one, but I have tons:D Lattes sound good too, yummy! Also, I know what I Love Lucy is. We used to watch it, but they don't play it much anymore. I need to get a pair of converse, lol. Love this post, Jess!
    In Christ,

  6. oh dear. Get me around paper or anything that draws..and I'm lost. Even if I don't need it. I LOVE PAPER. I have so many different sizes and I'm always scribbling some note down for a story idea. ;) lol. Hey, did you ever hear that I finished my novella for camp nano, I finished with 31k! I'm editing now, so far so good! :D

    P.S. Don't worry about the pictureless posts, at least you haven't left us! ;)

  7. I looooove new notebooks, high heels and converses, and I Love Lucy, too!!!! Some of the best things in the universe :)!!
