I'd take more days like this one

If there's such thing as a 'perfect typical day' I'm sure that today would have to be it...

Getting back to school after spring break // waking up early to read my Bible with the chirping birds and 
golden sun // scrawling out a letter to my lovely friend, Carolyn // sipping a delicious smoothie for 
breakfast... that contained well-hidden spinach. Yay for veggies in my breakfast! // very productive school time // taking a break during math to read a fairytale // wasting less than 10 minutes on the internet-- the whole day! // using my time in stead to read (Audrey Hepburn biography) // planting chamomile // getting nearly sunburned in March // doing history with my mamma and sister in the back yard, wearing our swimsuit tops and getting tan :) // eating salad and a bajillion carrots with lunch // running three miles, nearly stopping to walk because the heat was killing me, but finishing and feeling victorious // stir fry for dinner // a crescent moon. 
Simply too perfect. Thank you, Lord!

If you had a perfect day, what would it look like? What time of year would it be, would it matter what you wore or when you woke up? Tell me about it!

Oh, and as for the Hunger Games premier, it was an exciting and eventful night. I have a few little adjustments I would've made with the movie, but for the most part I thought they did a really good job on it, especially for what a detailed book it is. 

Sophi, Em, Adelle [Nina], and me
Now I have to tell you, at the premier I was dressed up as Katniss and there was a boy I spotted dressed as Peeta... and after talking to my friend Sophi who was dressed as the same, we decided to ask for a picture with him. Well, it was more like me running and yelling, 
 "Peeeeeettttaaaaaaa! Can we get a picture with you? See? Look! I'm Katniss, she's Katniss, we're both Katniss!! Can we have a picture together?? Please?" 
Umm, yeah, so I kind of overdid it. He just looked at me like oh my gosh, you are so crazy. I think I might have scared him. A lot. And I'm not some boy-crazy gal who begs for pictures with random costumed people... actually I'd never done something like this in my life. I was nervous and my words came out garbled, making me look like a fool. But I'll probably never see him again, and it was memorable, so what did I lose? Exactly. Nothing.

Peeeeettttaaaa! ;)
What did you think of the movie?

Love, a hug, and fresh chamomile,

  1. haha oh my.. :D To be honest, I wouldn't have the guts to walk up to someone like that. You are quite something. ;) Love the costumes btw!

  2. If only I had dark hair I would've dressed as Katniss. Saw the movie yesterday! it was amazing! Love your mockingjay pin! ;)

    Today was a great day for me too! WE just started back from spring break. :)

  3. I literally laughed out loud at the running to "Peeta" thing. I just love you! And your ahamzing photography. I am not gonna lie, your photography only gets better by each post. Just absolutely-jaw-dropping-gorgeous. :)))) Lovely post, sounds like an amazing day! :))

  4. oh my you're too funny. :D i probably would have done nearly the same--and just as awkwardly too. :) i'm seeing the movie tomorrow! so excited!!! :D

  7. hahahaha I was laughing out loud at the peeta thing. You're freakin hilarious. And gorgeous. I've never asked for a picture with someone, but I've definitely gone up to random people just to tell them things like "I like your shirt. soo... just thought I'd let you know I like your shirt. yep... I'm gonna go now. see ya. have fun with you and... er... your shirt. k." or something stupid like that. haha. Homeschooler much? Oh and that second picture? Don't even get me started. Seriously awesome.

  8. Haha, when I went on the day it was released nobody dressed up :( You look awesome in your Katniss outfit :)

  9. AAAAHHHH! That is so hilarious! XD You have some guts, girl, I'd never be able to walk up to a random person and ask for a photo. Or even be able to dress like Katniss. Curse my blonde hair! :(
