Favorite Quotes Tag

I haven't done a tag in a while -- and I think they are so fun! So, I thought I could make one up.
I thought it would be fun to share with you some of my favorite quotes and to see what quotes other people think are cool, funny, or just make them smile.
So here are some of my favorite quotes!

This one makes me smile - I am NOT a morning person. *winks*

And now for the tagging.
Anyone who wants to can do this!
(and if you do please leave a comment with a link to it so I can see)
But as for people I want to tag:
"Auntie A" @ Miracles Do Happen   
(Amanda -- you don't have to do this, but I thought it would be fun to tag you anyway ;P)

And the guidelines:
//Think of quotes that you love. They can be quotes by famous people, a movie, or even just a family member - or a Bible Verse.
//You could put the quotes on backgrounds, but if you don't enjoy doing that then feel free to just put them in your post.
//Be sure that you say who said the quote -- or where in the Bible it is.
// Post them! You could take the banner and post it with them if you'd like.
// Tag as many friends as you like!

Have fun! =D

What do you think of my quotes?

My Birthday Pictures Adventures

Having your pictures taken can be an adventure. Especially when you have a sister like Felicity take them. She had me doing the craziest things!

her - "Let's go in the goat pen!"
me -"In these boots!?"
her - "Hey! People climb mountains and stand in water in a PROM dress - you can go in the goat pen."

So we went in the goat pen.

her - "Scream if a goat tries to eat me."

Simon promptly comes up to me and lays his head in my lap. While Felicity is calling for him, he just sits there. So I started to pet him.

me - "He just loves me."
me - *screams*
me -  "He's eating me!"

I got him off my sweater, Felicity took him away and after pulling Theodore -- then Alvin -- away from me we got some pictures taken. (Plus we had to chase off some chickens)
When I started to walk away, I walked up to Alvin.

Me - *Gasp* "HELP! He's eating me!"

And this time he grabbed on my sweater tight! But we did get him off of it before he tore a hole in it. After which I went running out if the pen. "I'm getting out of here!"

So. Yeah. She told me to scream if the goats tries to eat her and they never once touched her!!

We tried to take some pictures with my cat, but he just went back to sleep in my arms. I tried to get him to open his eyes but he was just like, "Yeah, whatever - I'm sleeping."

Then she says we are going to the back of our property... with the spiders, bugs, and cougars. After telling me to "climb in that bush", we get some taken there... with me bending my legs because I was uphill from her. *winks*

her - "Okay, sit in the pile of leaves. We'll just have to fix..."
me -"Me, after?"
her - "I was gonna say "it"..."

So I climbed into the leaves and she tells me to throw some in the air. After getting leaves in my hair, face and all over myself she says, "Oh. It's blurry. I'm gonna delete it."

But  I think we got some pretty good pictures anyway. *winks*

Photo Shoot: Fall on our Little "Farm"

Today I took my moms camera out into the wet world outside our door and took some pictures.
It's been a wonderful fall and with my birthday done and over with I now have other things to look forward to. Like the Harvest Party some of my 1st cousins (once removed) are throwing! We are going to dress up and I'm quite excited about my costume! (My family isn't having our Fall Party this year -- guess they're all too busy)
I  am not going as Izzy Pettibone from "Road to Avonlea" because my sister came up with a way better idea. I'm not going to tell you what it is -- you'll just have to wait! *winks*
Okay! Here are the pictures I took today: 
This picture doesn't really look like a "fall" picture -- probably more like a winter one, but it was there and it was screaming "TAKE MY PICTURE!!" *winks*
I really like how this one turned out *grins*
The goats "hanging" with their friends -- the chickens
and inside the goat shed, my cat is snuggled in the hay *smiles*

Well, there you have it! Hope you enjoyed!!!

My Bedroom Tour #1

*I know I said this post would be posted sometime next week, but... ;P*
Today I am doing a more detailed bedroom tour. I didn't like the pictures I used for the "finished look" in my last post, so this is mainly so I can feel better about it. :)

I hope you all enjoy! Just keep in mind that our room is still a work in progress. That is the reason for this being the #1 bedroom tour. ;)

First off, we have our bookshelf!! =D My dad made it for us. ;)
So. On the top of the bookshelf, we have decorations that need a place to go. Our baby pictures (I'm the one on the left), signs and stuff like:
 a few of my Disney postcard collection that we framed. Aren't they beautiful? I can't wait till we find a spot for them on the wall. I think my favorite is the one from Peter Pan. =D
Which is your favorite?
On the top shelf we have our school yearbooks, for the three years we went to school. (two copies of each, but only one set is mine) ... it looks like most the rest of the books are LaKaysha's. Jane Eyre is mine, as well as the Dear America book, the Disney Fairies books, and The Daybreakers. (a few more may be mine, too)
On the second shelf, the first thirteen books are mine. (the first one is kinda hidden by the side of the shelf) The Mandie books are mine, and I own most of American Girl books, and the Life of Faith books are mine... yeah, I mostly own youth books. I am in need of others., I know :)
On the last shelf we have all Felicity's movies, my purse and LaKaysha's purse.
I am thinking about finding a new "home" for our purses and moving my movies into our room, too, but I'm not sure if they will fit on that shelf with hers... they should I don't have that many movies ;)
(All Felicity's books are still packed, so if it's not mine - it's LaKaysha's)  
The view from our window... which we hardly ever see because we have it covered with a sheet... until we get curtains. :)
Under the window we have Felicity's hope chest (which my dad made), with my record player on top. :) It's a lovely record player, isn't it? But, I do think it needs to go someplace else eventually... it just doesn't "pop" while it's sitting there ;P  
And here is our open closet. With the clothes of three fashion lovers in it. :) And it's mostly coats and sweaters. I have a thing for "winterish" things - like coats and sweater and boots... and scarves!!! I love the cozy look of them all. I have one pair of fingerless mittens that I made, but they're pink, so I don't find much to wear them with.......
Here are our shoes...such a "neat" pile, huh? Most of them are Felicity's... thanks to her I have a shoe for every occasion. ;P We have more now... as you know - I bought a pair of boots! And guys, those boots are soooo comfortable!!!! *dies* I wore them to town the day after I got them, but I can't wait to wear them again!!!!
This is my dresser. After sharing a dresser with my sister for a year - this is awesome! =D Though the bottom drawer is crammed. We try to fit my pants, all our scarves, boot cuffs, head wraps, and hats ALL in one drawer... I organize it a lot, hoping for a better way ;P
And on top of it we have all our makeup, lotions, body sprays, and just all our "girly" things ;)
And that little shelf - my brother built for LaKaysha's birthday one year. We have our Bibles on the top and our Cds on the shelves. And we have our mirror hung now. :)
On the top shelf I have my CDs. (missing Tangled Soundtrack... I hadn't bought it yet when I took this picture... oh. And one Cd is actually Kimberly's... I just never remember to give it to her when she comes to visit! *vows to remember this time*) I just realized that I mostly have Disney Soundtracks and Celtic Thunder Cds. ;P Well, that's just what I like, I guess! :D
Between my dresser and Felicity's is where I keep my records. =D Aren't they beautiful? *happy sigh* ;P I am so in need of more... ;D
on top of Felicity's dresser is where we have her CD player and LaKaysha's typewriter. ;)
Don't they look nice? And that picture of Felicity and Kaysha adds... with those dried flowers :) Too bad none of these beautiful things are mine. ;D Maybe someday my record player will have a better "home" than it has and it'll look this amazing ;)  
Here is the door that goes into my dad's shop. He made it himself. :D And that is our heater on the floor. ;P
Our bed. :) I sleep on the bottom... on the side by the wall. (on the floor by my dresser is our containers full of hair stuff) I put pillow shams on two other pillows, so our bed looks a little better than this now . ;) Oh. And that pink throw blanket on the bed, I made. :) I don't even remember when I made that... it was after 2013 ;P
Each step opens up into a cupboard where we "hide" all our junk ;P
 That blanket folded up on that step, Emily made for me. She gave it to me for Christmas one year. :D
And on the top step are my diaries... oh. And some of LaKaysha's ;P
But most of them are mine... eleven of them are mine. (ten full) there are also a couple family cookbooks up there... I don't have a hope chest yet, so there they sit. ;P  
 All the boxes on the left are what we will be putting on the other shelves when they're done... so those won't be staying there ;P the lighting of this picture is pretty bad - sorry. ;P
 (The door on the end goes outside)

So there you have it! It's quite cozy, actually. 
What do you all think?
