falling asleep to pictures of cute things

im so very tired today. i haven't been sleeping whatsoever. i owe this to the fact that i have been sick for the past week and a half. swine flu maybe? im guessing so. but im getting better so thats a plus...anyways i haven't been much a sleeper the past few years. its just hard for me to get into the really deep sleep where hardly anything wakes you up. the kind where you're sleeping so soundly that if a fire alarm were to go off you probably would be stuck inside because you don't hear it go off. haha. so hopefully tonight i can get a little better night's sleep. i took some sleeping medicine so cross your fingers im not a hopeless [and sleepless] case!

anyways as i was playing on here just now i came across the cutest website:
this is the one of the most adorable things i've seen. it just makes me want a kitty so badly!!!

welll im off to bed. im about to fall asleep with the computer open and i would rather turn on "the corpse bride" and finish watching that :] night lovely dearests! here are some cute things to look at.

excuse me evening

i don't know what to write about today. and i don't really know what to say.
its just one of those moods where you want to curl up with a nice, soft, amazing blanket, with a nice cup of coffee or tea, and watch the notebook or read a book with old jazz on. i would have to say my music of choice would be that of billie holiday.

with that being said...i will leave you with my favorite song in the world:

"i'll be seeing you" by billie holiday.

I'll be seeing you
In all the old familiar places
That this heart of mine embraces
All day through.

In that small cafe;
The park across the way;
The children's carousel;
The chestnut trees;
The wishin' well.

I'll be seeing you
In every lovely summer's day;
In every thing that's light and gay.
I'll always think of you that way.

I'll find you
In the morning sun
And when the night is new.
I'll be looking at the moon,
But I'll be seeing you.

I'll be seeing you
In every lovely summer's day;
In every thing that's light and gay.
I'll always think of you that way.

I'll find you
In the morning sun
And when the night is new.
I'll be looking at the moon,
But I'll be seeing you.

The best love is

the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.
-noal calhoun

noah calhoon says it best in the notebook. this movie will always be my number one favorite movie. i love it. i want to marry someone just like noah because i think of myself to be just like allie. one of my closest friends said i am just like her. goodness. this movie just envelops everything i believe about love.

one time i thought i found my noah. after a year and a half he turned out to be no such thing. far from it. and so everytime i watch this now, my hope continues to grow that my noah, my real, actual noah, is somewhere out though. he is waiting for me to come along.

he is going to come up to me and ask me to dance. sing me "ill be seeing you" by billie holiday. and forever he will have captured me to be his forever and ever.

oh i cannot wait. :)

rome - pictures to replace the words

i think today can only be expressed in pictures. pictures that may not even represent what im feeling. some, yes. some, i just love. so im going to add a few. some are quotes. some are photographs. i hope you feel something when you look at them. to put it plainly: at some point in time i will have felt, will feel, or am feeling all of these emotions and feelings stirred up in these pictures. i know that even though im not feeling like some of these at the moment, that i once did feel the way some of these depict.
i really hope to feel that again too. and i know i will. someday.

i know those last few sentences are repetitive. but sometimes things just need to be reitterated.

at some point in time i will have felt, will feel, or am feeling all of these emotions and feelings stirred up in these pictures.

enjoy your day!

countdown - three weeks without a word

oh my heavens.
its been almost 3 weeks since i have written. ive been so terribly busy and i didnt make any time to write. sorry! :/ unfortunately im sick today. i went to work all day, pushed through, and worked an entire eight hour shift. tomorrow i have to be there at seven. ill probably head home early though. im not feeling well at all.

but on a positive note...it allowed me to read peter and the shadow thieves. i have hardly had time to sit down and read lately. ive missed it so much. tomorrow ill finish this book though and then finish impulse by ellen hopkins. after that i plan on finishing identical and tricks by ellen hopkins as well.

there are so many books i need to buy and to read."sense and sensibility and sea monsters" is on my list of books to read. as well as "pride and prejudice and zombies." both look so good!
i have never read any of jane austen's books but i've heard these are very good and since i work at barnes&noble i feel its my civil duty as a bookseller (especially one who runs the kids/teens department) to read up on books so i can recommend them.

plus i just love a good read.
especially falling asleep reading.

i also would like to read alice in wonderland. i love that movie so much.
in fact im going to design my cupcake shop with a theme such as that.

on a parting note ill leave you with this insanely amazing remix video of alice in wonderland i found. you will want to watch it over and over. i love it! goodnight world :]

i hope your day was lovely.

ps have you read any good reads lately?

oh how i love the fall season. what i don't understand is why the weather is supposed to reach 100 degrees again this week! i am so ready for fall weather. i am so ready for the 60's and 70's, breezes blowing, leaves changing, the feel of fall. oh i can't wait because guess what is after fall? CHRISTMAS! my favorite holiday and season of the year. holiday season that is.
my favorite season is autumn season though.

i love absolutely everything about fall. i can't wait to be in fort collins when the trees turn from green to yellow, orange, and red. i can't wait for rain. i can't wait the entire feel of it all.

things i love about fall:
-the smell of the leaves.

-the beautiful colors of the leaves, the trees, the sunsets.
-chai tea.
-lattes, lattes, lattes.

-the smell of school pencils.
-taking notes at school.
-sweaters and cardigans.

-pea coats

-early morning reading outside with a blanket.
-raking leaves.
-riding a bike outside.

-the fall weather breezes.
-pumpkin spice!
-holiday decorations coming out in the stores.
-halloween candy :)


-the fall lineup for new shows on tv!


oh my goodness i absolutely cannot wait for fall to officially start. this week needs to end so that the cool weather can come in.
