Twenty-One


Today is my 21st birthday. 

It was spent going to church, relaxing and spending time with my family. It was very special, amazing, happy and fun! I loved all the gifts my family got me! We had homemade "specialty" pizzas for dinner and lemon cheesecake for dessert. It was warm enough to go out and jump for a little bit with my siblings on the trampoline. I wore a new dress to church and my favorite pink skinny jeans at home. Also, this week I got my hair colored all over for the first time ever. My cousin is going to beauty school and did it for me as a birthday gift, and I LOVE it!!

I'm thankful to have lived 21 years, but more thankful for the 13 REAL years that I've been born AGAIN! :) Without Jesus's blood being shed for me, I would be dead in my sins! By having faith in his blood we can receive life everlasting! :) Thankful for that today and everyday!

The Last Snow Falls (?)

I put a question mark at the end of that because who knows if it really will be the last snow with the way Indiana weather is! I know a lot of people are hoping it is, because they are dying for spring and summer. I myself don't mind. Let spring comes when it comes, let summer slowly go by, and let the winter snow stay for as long as needs be. 
If you can't tell I'm learning to slow down my life a little and just enjoy while I can, in this day, in this moment.

Day 65
The Snow Falls

We got a lot of snow that day. Enough to cancel schools and church services. Enough to pack and make igloos and for the nerds in my family, minecraft houses.
After an hour of that, me and my littlest sister jumped in the car and went around the corner to this little wooded area behind our house. 
She was dressed so cute for the snow,(she's such a diva) and we took some pictures. :)
How's your week been? Any snow your way?

My Absence & Downton Abbey *SPOILERS!!*

Busy me.
Well, decided I just can't post my 365's on my blog all the time. So if you want to see my pic for each day you can visit my flickr!

I will pick one or two a couple times a week to follow a blog post. 
Like this one. 

56/365 ::Downton Abbey::

BEWARE - *SPOILERS for those who haven't seen Downton Abbey yet, so DO NOT read!


My sisters watched the Downton Abbey season finale a couple weeks ago. I was going to watch it with them and am very glad that they didn't let me. 
 I had never watched it, nor really had a desire too.
Although I had watched the first episode of season one back when they watched it, it just didn't do much for me.

I was bored one night so I decided to give it another try. 
Did I ever!
 I watched three episodes the first night. Then the next. Also, the night after that! I really loved the characters and was interested in the people's lives and deaths.(RIP SYBIL)
Although the current season had already ended, I found Netflix had season 1 but I couldn't find season's 2 & 3 anywhere online!
My Aunt bought the Downton Abbey UK version DVD's because they came out before the US version and she just couldn't wait that long! Ha, ha! Lucky for me, she lives close and let me borrow them. 
It took me two or three weeks to get through but last night I finished the season 3 finale. 
My favorite character from the beginning was Matthew. He's so sweet, kindhearted and handsome! 
Let me tell you. I was so mad. I actually threw my pillow accross the room in anger. I refused to believe they would do that to my Matthew. 
When I saw him driving down the road all happy, I was like "NO. OH NO, Please no!!"
Then bloop, he was gone. 

WHY!

I heard that the actor wanted to be taken off the show so they killed him, because any other way would be hard to believe because of the strong bond & love that he and Mary shared. 

So, what do you like and hate about Downton Abbey? Will you be watching season 4?
