Because some things just can't be put into words...

Don't Worry, Be Happy

A Note From Emmy:

Bobby and I became friends when were were in the play Faith County this past spring (those of you who saw the play know him as "Gladys"). He is an amazing person - and always so positive and uplifting! I'm so glad he offered to do a guest post - and I know you will be too!


The creators of The Price is Right probably never intended their program to produce anxiety.  The sounds of someone spinning the Big Wheel or winning A BRAND NEW CAR always makes my stomach tighten and my breath shorten just a bit.  I've developed that weird association in the hospital waiting room.  Over the last few years, I've spent more time than I care to think about waiting there to see how my mom's latest surgery would turn out.  Coincidentally, the waiting has spanned many Showcase Showdowns.

All By Myself- Guest Post

Note from Emmy: I met "Relevant Notes" through 20sb - and have LOVED her blog! I think you'll love her too, and I really enjoyed this post. Since moving to Missouri, I've had to get used to some "lonely moments" and have even learned to enjoy them.
 I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.

I Solemnly Swear I Am Up To No Good

Day 31: What Affect has Harry Potter had on Your Life, and how Much Does it Mean to You?

I can't believe at this time tomorrow I'm going to be preparing to see the final midnight premiere of a Harry Potter movie. I'm really excited to see how they do it - but I'm also dreading it. It's all going to be over. On Saturday I'm leaving on a youth trip with 16 teenagers - and they said that while we're there they want to see Harry Potter with me.

I think it's because they all just want to see me cry and geek out the entire movie. :P

I didn't want to read Harry Potter at first. I remember hearing about it and how awesome it was - but I thought Harry Potter was the dumbest idea ever.

Day 29: Did You Enjoy A Very Potter Musical?

No. Not at all.

I didn't think it was TOTALLY AWESOME.

I don't quote the musical nearly EVERY SINGLE DAY!

I don't have the words to all of the songs memorized.

You Know You're Jealous Of My Job

I am back from camp! We had such an awesome week - I can't even explain to you. I'm so proud of the teenagers who were our camp counselors this year. They had a lot of responsibility on their shoulders with helping to start a new camp and being in charge of a bunch of 4-6th graders! They did an amazing job and I'm so glad they were all able to come!

I Miss the Old Nick at Nite

Day 25: If You Could be Able to Work One Spell Without a Wand What Would it Be?

I was stuck on this one - so I asked PM2 what spell he would want to be able to do.

Beautiful Ending

Day 24: Nineteen Years Later - are You Happy With The Way Things Turned Out, or do You Wish Something Had Been Different? (Example: Neville Married Luna)

I'm going to point out YET AGAIN - that if you don't want spoilers stop reading. :D

I Am A Feminist- Guest Post

Some of you who aren't as avid of Harry Potter fans as I am are probably ready to read something different - here is a guest post for you all (who may or may not be HP fans) from my friend Melissa!

I am a Feminist

I said it. The F word. Feminist. Are you judging me yet?

It's a Crime I Tell You - A CRIME!

Day 20: Out of all of the Characters That Died, If You Could Bring One Back, Who Would it Be?

There are so many characters that I wish didn't die. The end of pretty much every book starting with Goblet of Fire is heartbreaking. It's as if JK Rowling put on a blind fold, then started randomly pointing at characters and when she was done that was who was going to die. So it's a hard choice.

So Depressing

Day 17: Least Favorite Book

I want to start this post clarifying that I really do genuinely enjoy ALL OF THE HARRY POTTER BOOKS.
