Another Message To Gallop Girl...

Hey Gallop Girl!
Here is the updated button. Is there anything else you want changed (like maybe a few more words on the button) or do you like it now?
If you think it's good enough, I need your email address. If you don't wish to tell me your email address, I will comment on this post with the button code. A few problems I have had will not allow me to put the button code in a post.
So, what do you think?

Horse Crazy!

Cool picture, by the way!

Writer's Block

*Sigh* I really liked this story idea I had, but I rewrote the beginning so many times I'm bored of writing it. I'm looking forward to writing the middle, but I'm tired of writing the beginning. I don't know what to do. Should I write the first chapter last?

Wedding Dress Pictures

This is my entry for the contest Lauren is having on her blog. Oh, and before I forget to say, this wedding dress is handmade. Each little frill was carefully sewn on by my grandma.

So, here's the pictures of my mom's wedding dress:

*No title*

Something really exciting happened! Guess what?! I found a chest with two hundred dollars in it! It was buried in my backyard!
Okay, I didn't. But what else can I say? There's nothing to talk about. Am I boring you? If I am, all you need to do is say so, 'cause then I'll stop. Really, I will.

A special thanks to:

My Story

What do you think? Please comment and tell me.

Chapter one

"No," my mom, Judy, put her foot down. "And that's my final answer."
"But mom," I protested.
"No but's, Sarah. I don't need you to get a job. I can provide for the family without your help."
"Mom, please. Just let me get a job until you find work."
"Sarah, just drop it. I don't want to hear another word on the subject," Judy said. She looked tired.
I dropped into a chair. "Mom..."
"I told you to drop it." And with that, Judy left her seat and hurried from the room.
I stared thoughtfully out the window. Ever since dad died and mom lost her job things have never been the same around here. Our family needs me to get a job. Mom doing odd jobs now and again aren't going to pay the bills.
I picked up the newspaper and went to the wanted section. Hmmm... There's a job at a tea shop. Nah, It doesn't pay enough. I could work as a waiter at "Burger Palace."
As I scanned the newspaper, an ad to work at an aquarium caught my eye. It wasn't anything special. I would work in the gift shop, but it was better than nothing. And it would probably pay more than the other jobs too.
I jumped up from my seat and ran upstairs to my mom's room.
"Mom, I've got it!"
"I said no, Sarah."
"But look at this. I could work at an aquarium!"
Judy sat up and held out her hand. I gave her the newspaper and she looked over the ad carefully. "The answer is still no."
"Please, mom. I've always wanted to work around animals."
Judy smiled and shook her head. "You'll never by satisfied until I say yes."
I hugged her hard. "Thanks mom!"
"I didn't say yes yet," Judy said.
But I was already out of the room. My mind, though, was out of the world.
My first job! This is so exciting!
As I opened the door to the car, my little sister, Devin, snuck up behind me.
"Boo!" she yelled.
I jumped.
Devin grinned up at me. "Where are you going Sarah?"
"I'm going to get a job! Mom finally gave me permission."
Devin wrapped her arms around me. "That's so great! Where are you working?"
"At an aquarium."
"Can I come in for free then?"
"I'm not even getting it for sure yet. I have to apply for it first."
"You'll get it, I know you will," Devin cheered.
I smiled and started the car. "Bye Devin."
Devin waved as I drove away.


The drive to the aquarium seemed to take a long time. I was beginning to worry they wouldn't have the job by the time I got there.
The lady at the desk smiled pleasantly at me. "Can I help you, miss?"
"I'm here about a job in the paper." I replied.
"You'll have to talk to the manager about that. He's down the hall, to your right." She pointed me in the right direction.
"Thanks." I took my time getting down the hall, rehearsing what I'd say. When I finally came to his door, I knocked. My knock seemed too loud in the quiet hallway.
"Come in," a male voice said.
I opened the door and took in the room. Aquarium stuffed animals, books, and figurines covered his shelves. The wallpaper had a strange greenish-blueish-yellowish hue to it. I had a feeling it was supposed to look like water, but it looked more like a dirty lake with garbage floating in it.
"Have a seat," the man invited.
I nervously sat down. "I'm here about a job."
"Ah, yes. Of course!" The man started laughing. His face turned red and he nearly fell out of his chair. It was a very funny sight to see, but I didn't laugh in case of offending him.
He cleared his throat and sat erect in his chair. "My apologies."
"What's so funny sir?"
He started laughing again. But managed to answer, "Nothing is funny."
I blinked.
He just grinned. "Never you mind. About the job, here's a form. Please fill it out."
The form read:

What's your favourite food?__________
What's your favourite colour? _________
What's your favourite outfit? __________
Do you enjoy eating cereal? ___________

"Sir, I don't think this is the right form."
He grabbed it from my hands, "It is. Why wouldn't it be right?"
I chose not to answer and filled out the form.
He glanced over it. "You're hired."

What do you think? Is it too weird?

Fiddler on the roof - Matchmaker ( with subtitles )

I love the movie "Fiddler on the Roof." This is my favourite song from the movie.


Me and Scezzle had a sleepover!! We went and watched a play and then my mom went and got us come ice cream. While we had the ice cream we watched a movie.

This morning we woke up and did my paper route. Then we had breakfast and went to the park to take pictures with my new camera. We got some really good pictures. We brought my dog along and he actually stayed still long enough to let us take his picture. It was really fun! When we got back me and Scezzle made ourselves some lunch. Then we washed the dishes.

Maybe later I'll post some of the pictures that we took.

I think one of the best feelings in the world is the feeling of being tucked into bed. I love that cozy feeling you get when the lights are turned out and you curl up into a ball. I especially love it when it's raining outside and you can listen to the rain hit the roof as you fall asleep.

I also like the feeling of Friday night. You have a whole weekend ahead of you to do whatever you want.

Another feeling I enjoy is pulling cookies out of the oven and taking them off the sheet. This may sound strange to you, but it makes me feel so proud (I don't know why it makes me feel proud, so don't ask).

Other feelings I enjoy are typing at the computer (I love the sound the keys make), finishing my projects, and getting lots of comments. ;)

What feelings do you enjoy? Comment and tell me.

The Mom Song by: Anita Renfroe

This video is really funny! I wonder if this is how your mom feels sometimes. :)

Hot Chocolate and Snow

There is nothing quite like a warm cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows when you've just got in from shovelling snow *contented sigh*. And with a warm piece of banana chocolate chip coffee cake too!

(here's a picture of the coffee cake)

For the recipe, click HERE.

My dog seemed to enjoy the snow too! Here are some pictures of him playing in it...

Owl City - Fireflies and Vanilla Twilight

My brother showed me these videos a while ago and, though I don't usually enjoy this sort of music, I did like these songs.
