Let It Snow!

Posted in Random with tags on December 6, 2008 by Samantha Rose

So, wordpress has this thing where it can snow on your blog. (that’s what the white stuff is. Don’t worry, you aren’t imagining it, and nothing’s wrong with your computer. xD) So we’re going to try it for a while. If I get tired of it, or it just starts bothering me, I’ll take it off. So don’t be all surprised if the snow suddenly disappears. Because there’s a good chance it will. =)



Turkey, Twilight, and Trees

So, Twilight was everything I thought it would be. I went to it for the third time this weekend. Rob was absolutely gorgeous as Edward! Kristen was a little bit of a spaz at times, which resulted in a little awkwardness but it was awesome awkwardness!! The whole movie was awesome!!!!!!

We put all our decorations up and our tree up today and yesterday. We are officially now festive. =)

Our Turkey Day was good. It was so nice to be home. It was hard, but still a nice day. How was everyone else’s weekend?

I left my parents at security on Tuesday afternoon, feeling very excited and a little nervous. What if I missed my plane? What if there was something wrong with my ticket? What if I had to sit next to some creeper on the plane? All of these thoughts were running through my head as I walked down the slope to gates 3&5. The waiting area was nearly empty, and I relaxed. I sat down next to a window and then took out a book. In my nervous-ness and excited-ness, I ended up going back to the gate about an hour early. When I finally boarded the plane, new worries came. What if I couldn’t find my seat? What if there was someone in my seat? What if something happened while we were flying? I would have no way to contact anyone. I found my seat and watched everyone else getting on, wondering who was going to sit next to me. No one. I was glad to have a little space. Take-off was amazing, and I enjoyed it a lot. We weren’t flying very long when we landed in Helena. And then they told us there was something wrong with the cock-pit and they had to call in a mechanic. So we waited, and waited, and waited some more. After an hour, we were all on the plane and ready to go. The rest of the flight went smoothly and then I was in Seattle. Then, I started worrying that I wouldn’t be able to find Travis in the busy airport. I found him easily and then we were on our way. Then all I could feel was excitement, and relief that I had gotten there okay.

My time here has been wonderful. It seems so natural to be in Seattle, and to be in Marcy’s house playing with my nephews, that it’s strange. It’s so natural, it makes it unnatural. Today me and Marcy took the boys down to U Village. After we were done shopping, for a minute I expected to go back to the Ronald McDonald House. And then I remembered, no, I don’t live there anymore. It’s strange to be so close to it, and not make the turn to go there. Even though I was born in Montana, and I love it, I feel like Seattle is so much my home. It feels so natural to go in to a huge city and walk around. I love it here. The time has gone so fast; I can’t believe I’m going home tomorrow! I have missed my family while I’ve been here, but like I said, this feels so much like home to me.

Please pray that the Seattle airport will be easy to navigate too, and that the flight will go smoothly tomorrow.


I’m Walking on Sunshine

So tonight is our first choir concert of the year, and this will actually be my first choir concert in well over a year. I think the last time I did a concert was the end of sixth grade, but it should go quick. The cougar choir (7th and 8th graders) are singing ‘Are You Going to Scarborough Fair’ ‘Joshua (Fit the Battle of Jericho)’ and ‘Walking on Sunshine’. I’m not sure what songs the high school choir and then the treble choir that Molly’s in are singing tonight, but I do know one of them is in French. =)

Tomorrow at around 2 in the afternoon, I will board my plane and leave for Washington. I’m very excited, but a little nervous to be flying alone. I’m sure it will go smoothly, but just say a quick prayer that nothing will happen.

My visit to see Marcy & family is just a little over a week away…

Tuesday is my last day of French….

Charlie shaved his head and Fred got his own website….

I became a fan of Sharon Creech’s books….

I now have a severe hatred for negative numbers because of last week’s math….

And I’ve been craving Starbucks for about 3 days now.

So, what’s been going on with everyone else? =)


The Office, Seattle, and Charlie

Posted in Movies, Random with tags , , , on September 27, 2008 by Samantha Rose

I’ve been debating for a few days what I should post about. So, for now, here’s an update.

School has been…well, it’s been school. =) More exciting news is that I’m probably going out to visit Marcy and Travis next month, which I’m very very excited about. One of my favorite youtube bloggers is celebrating his 18th birthday next week, and during his live blog, he’s going to be shaving off all of his hair and donating it for a cancer research center in the UK (where he lives), so that’s really cool. Last Thursday (the 25th) was the premier of The Office. SPOILER: Jim proposed to Pam! Yay! I was sooooo excited. The Office makes me very happy. =)

So…not much else has been going on here. I watched the third Harry Potter movie with French subtitles today for, guess what? French class. Surprised? =) Me and Molly made puppy chow. Well, mainly Molly made it. We also watched Speed Racer this afternoon. I love that movie. So cool.
