Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow

Day 16: Are You Excited About the Last Movie, or are You Afraid it Won't do it Justice?

I have so many mixed emotions about the last movie!

Friendship, Friendship, Just A Perfect Blendship...

I want to give a shout out to friends today. It hasn't been much fun for me the last couple of weeks - but at the same time it's been awesome. I was able to go to two weddings a couple weekends ago up in Chicago. One wedding was for a friend I've known for literally my entire life and I was one of her bridesmaids. It was such a beautiful day! Then the day after that a former college roommate of mine got married, and there were so many old friends from college that night. We had so much fun! The entire weekend was filled with dancing, reunions, love, and enjoying time together. 

Then the drive home happened. 

My poor little PT Cruiser!

The Main Thing- Guest Post

Day 14: Team Voldemort or Team Harry?

Really? Is this question really necessary? Why in the world would I choose Voldemort- the most evil wizard ever who also happens to be racist and can be compared to Hitler, over my hero Harry Potter?


So with that - I have another guest post for you all!

Confusion = Guest Blogger!
Day 12: Your Favorite Ship

Um... I'm not really sure what is meant by "ship." Because they don't go sailing or anything that much in Harry Potter.


Here's a guest blog instead. Enjoy!

Secretly... I'm A Readhead

Day 11: What Character Do You Feel You Are The Most Like?

The character I feel like I am the most like is Ginny Weasley. Which is why I didn't mention her in my post about my favorite female character.

While I may not have red hair, a gaggle of brothers, I haven't had a million boyfriends, and would probably die playing Quidditch, I think we are still a lot alike.

Ginny can hold her on while hanging out with the guys. A lot of my friends are guys, and while I'm not really a "tom boy" (and neither is Ginny by the way), I can still hold my own. At least from what I can tell.

Ginny doesn't give up on people easily, and neither do I. Even when Harry shows absolutely no interest in her at all, she never truly gives up on him. She is still his friend, and holds a special place in her heart for him. I try not to give up on people either. They mess up, make mistakes, and sometimes ignore me completely. But I still have hope for them, and having to "give up" on someone is really hard for me. I don't know if this is a good or bad thing, but that's how I am.

Master of Death

Day 10: Horcruxes or Hallows?

I would totally choose the Deathly Hallows over Horcruxes. 

For those of you who may not know what the heck Horcruxes and Hallows are... here is what says:

Picking Out My Schedule

Day 8: What Do You Think Would Be Your Favorite Lesson?

My initial thought was Defense Against the Dark Arts- but when I thought about it... I changed my mind. The idea of Defense Against the Dark arts is awesome. However, it's only awesome when Lupin is teaching, and part of me feels like I would get really scared during class.

We Wouldn't Last A Day Without Her

Day 7: Your Favorite Female Character

I feel lame for picking one of the power trio. I feel as though I should be more creative.

But I can't help it.

I think Hermione Granger is fantastic.

How We Gonna Pay RENT?

The Love Drop  team is at it again! Last month they gave over $9,200 worth of cash, goods and services to their recipient, the Stalnaker family, who had been going through a financially hard time due to the effects of the BP oil spill on the Louisiana economy. The family was in need of a car and the Love Drop team was able to surprise them with one, making it one of the most exciting Love Drops ever.  You can watch how it all went down here. 

This month they rally behind the Aubins  - a Michigan mother and her three children who  are mourning the death of Keith, husband and father, after his lengthy battle with multiple health problems.  Our goal is to raise at least $3,600 to pay the family's rent for three months, which will allow them to focus on what they need to during this time, without fear of losing their home. Additionally, since Keith was an organ donor, he leaves a powerful legacy and the Love Drop team hopes to raise awareness of organ donation this month to honor Keith's memory. Help us make this month special for the Aubins!
 Check out the youtube video about the family:

I Hate That I Don't Hate You, Not Even Close, Not Even A Little Bit, Not Even At All

Day 4: Least Favorite Female Character and Why

This one is almost too easy... it's a bit ridiculous. (Also, if you can name what movie I got the title of this post from, you are AWESOME!)

That Makes Me Very Angry

I've been LOVING all of your comments and how you all have been getting into the 30 Day Harry Potter Challenge. Feel free to comment on the posts and share your opinions on each day's challenge question - if you agree with me, or if you have a different opinion! I love hearing your thoughts. Also, if you want to catch up on the other Harry Potter posts I have created a page for all 30 Days. You can look ahead to see what questions are coming up  too!

Day 3: Are there any film adaptations that have made you angry because they ignored important parts of the book?

Day 2: Your Favorite Movie

I thought I was going to say one of two movies - but when I really thought about it, I surprised myself. My favorite Harry Potter movie was actually...

Last week someone asked me to write on this topic:

"Being different and overcoming obstacles maybe? Or loving yourself... ♥"

And So It Begins
Summer has officially started here in Cape. Well... maybe not officially since summer doesn't technically start until June 21st. HOWEVER - it has already hit 100, school is out, my summer wedding schedule is mapped out, we have done camp counselor training with the high school youth, and Vacation Bible School is only two weeks away.

It's summer.

Prayer Doesn't Always Work

Yesterday morning I asked my friends on Facebook and Twitter if they had any topic requests for my blog. One friend said they would like to hear me write about Psalm 34:4.

When I read that I couldn't help but smile. Psalm 34 is special to me.
