I will try, I will try, I will try...

"Excuse me, Miss?"

*Pulls out headphones*

"Can I just say you have a really pretty face."

"Oh, thank you."

"Are you a theater major?"

"No, why?"

"Cause you're singing show tunes, rather loudly I might add, while wearing an all black outfit, and bright lipstick. Plus you're eating a bag of raw veggies.
It was just an assumption."

I love my life.

I wanna be near you and blink in your light...

As I sit here at the Duncan Garage, my stomach filled to the brim with good eats, I feel like it is time to fill you all in on the great weekend I just had.

Saturday I embarked to Victoria with my dear Momma for some lady bonding time and just to get out of the house. We had lots of fun and ended our great day with seeing the one and only "Lorax." I seriously loved this movie, I will admit the musical numbers were rather cheesy but it was nice and heart-warming for sure.

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."

Sunday we acted like heathens and instead of going to church we slept in for the time change m

ade us a tad overtired.
Fast forward to Sunday evening where I got the awesome opportunity to stare at a beautiful ginger man for 3 hours. Not just any ginger man I may add, but the one and only Aaron Gillespie.

He, along with Parachute Band, were playing a concert FOR FREE at Glad Tidings church and I could not pass that up. My lovely lady friend Tor and I departed for good times, first stopping at Red Robin for dinner with a random bunch of friends.

The concert blew me away and I am so glad I got to share it with some of my best mates, dancing and singing and praising Jesus my homeboy.

The night was still young by the end of the concert so we thought we would go see "John Carter." Us girls wanted to add some more fun to the group so we invited my beardy friend (also ginger) to join us. It was good times (even though he was late!) and we laughed and snickered all throughout at the cheesy aliens and Taylor Kitsch's amazing eight pack!

We chatted outside whilst freezing our butts off and bid each other adieu, for our darling friend had an early morning ahead of him.

Tor and I stopped for Shamrock Shakes (SO GOOD) and headed home to our warm bed. We fell asleep to the sound of "Aristocats" in the background and couldn't help but think,

"This is Good!"

Much love and popcorn infested beards-- Amy

I've grown stronger...

As we grow up we learn
that the one person that was never supposed to let us down
probably will.
You'll have your heart broken.
You'll break other's hearts.
You'll fight with your
best friend,
maybe even fall in love with them
you'll forget that time is flying by.
Life comes with no guarantees.
No timeouts.
No second chances.
You just have to live your life to the fullest.
Tell someone what they mean to you and tell someone off.
Speak out.
Be sincere and say with conviction.
And never forget where you came from.
when you do,
it's a long road home.
