It's Fall :)

Thought I would do a late night blog before bed, since I have not blogged in awhile. I had a sudden urge to talk about fall, which is probably my favorite season of all time. I love the sweat shirts, bonfires,Halloween and Thanksgiving. But my favorite part is most likely, the clothes. I like the warm colors on a chilly day, and wearing boots. I love my boots. Every night before bed while I read, I light a candle I recently got, and it smells exactly like pumpkin pie. Every time I smell it it's almost like I'm craving fall. I'm not sure how much since that makes, but I don't know of any better ways to describe the feeling.

The fact of the matter is, I love Fall.

I have to admit, I have been a slacker when it comes to blogging. I've had a lot go on in the past few weeks. Me and my family recently went to Memphis to go to Graceland, and also went to see the Peabody ducks waddle their way down the "red carpet" at the Peabody hotel.
Anyway, I'm no longer busy and I'm back to blogging! I thought it would be a good time to do a book review like I promised. I have been reading the first book of the series, The House of Night. It's about a girl named Zoe who becomes a vampire and has to go to a school called the house of night. The book is defiantly not as good as I thought it would be, I'm almost done with it and I'm finally starting to get into it. It would not be my first choice to recommend to people. Next book I will be reading is The Help, I'm very excited!

Funny Girl

I have a new movie obsession, it's actually a classic. Surprise surprise, huh? Anyway, the movie is called Funny Girl. Even though it's about 2 hours long , I could watch it over and over again. Barbra Streisand plays a girl named Fanny who falls in love with a man named Nick Arnstein. I love when she sings , Don't Rain On My Parade, that song can make me smile no matter what kind of mood I'm in. There has been some complaints around my house, because I will randomly start singing that song. But they will have to deal with that for a while until a new movie obsession comes along. Here's a link to watch the scene, .

Have a blessed day, and go watch Funny Girl!

Finding the Perfect Book

The hardest thing for me is to find a book I can actually get sucked into. That one book, where all you think about is what's going to happen next. I had that feeling when I read the twilight series, I would lay in bed at night trying to fill in the blanks in my mind when I knew I should have been asleep, but I haven't been so attached to one since. People always talk about how they love to cozy up in a sweat shirt and just read, but I have trouble with that. It's like, if I don't like the book I lose interest in even finishing it. So now my new mission is to find the perfect book. While I'm on this hunt I will update about all the books that catch my eye. And by the way, I'm opened to suggestions!

Audrey Hepburn

Obviously by the quote I posted under my blogs name, you can tell I'm a fan of Audrey Hepburn. I've never actually seen any of her movies, but I've read bios on the Internet about her and quotes of things she's said, and from all I've read it seems like she was confident in herself. She felt beautiful, no matter what any one else said. She believed in herself, and her dreams. I look up to her for that. I'm starting to learn that life's not about wishing you were beautiful, it's about knowing it, and owning it. I've lived my life comparing my self to others and wishing I had their eyes or nose. But now I look in the mirror and think, you have something no one else has, be proud of it and embrace it. If God took the time to make you, you must be pretty special then.

Alice In Wonderland.

At the moment, I have been in love with the movie Alice In Wonderland. So in love, I decided to name my blog after it. I know, the things I write about really have nothing to do with a wonderland, but I thought the new name had a certain ring to it.
Basically I'm fascinated with the whole dreamland part of the story, and picturing how I think this magical wonderland looks in my mind. It's great how it's totally casual for Alice to talk to a mouse, while sipping tea with the mad hatter. I have not yet seen the original movie, just the new Johnny Depp version. I am however, reading the book, which I'm loving every word, sentence, and chapter of...

First Post

So I decided it would be fun to start a blog and write about my hobby's and interests in life.

I love photography, it has been a passion of mine for a while now. I also love music. I'm into lots of genres, mostly the coffee house type as in, Norah Jones, John Mayor, Ingrid Michaelson, ect... Though that would be my usual first choice, I have recently been quiet obsessed with music from the Broadway show Wicked. It's kind of like my ear candy at the moment . I would love to go the the show one of these days, but for right now I'm good with just listening to the music of it.
