Water for Elephants...

Water for Elephants...
Was such a great film!
 I didn't think I could picture Mr.Vampire, with Sweet Home Alabama girl.. but turns out, they worked, they fit perfectly together in this film. (Even if she is a decade older then him). I like the feeling you got from watching the movie, it is set back in the early 1900's, during the depression. I just love that time period; the way it looked, the fashion, the different class of people, even the Circus, it just felt real to me. That's how a Circus should be..
I am going to say the ending is goodit's the kind of romantic ending you'd want in a film
But during the movie, there are a few parts with torturing animals, I'm a huge animal lover, so to watch that; even if it is just 'acting', is still hard for me.. 
Rosie, the Elephant in the film, is such a sweet creature, I love Elephants to death, they are one of my favorite animals! It amazes me how they could train Elephants to do those kind of tricks, it's so crazy! I just wish they didn't have to harm these beautiful animals enable for them to do these tricks..  
I haven't been to a Circus in awhile, but watching this, makes me wish the old time Circuses would come back. (Just without the torturing animals part.. and Red Lighting people off a train..eeek).
But do go see it! It's worth it!
 If you have seen already, did you like it?
and Thank you Ty for taking me :)

It's one of those days..

 I wish I was a kitty; just lounging on the porch,
with the nice breeze, and the smell of Confederate Jasmine in the air.
Wouldn't that be nice.

This one's for you Lou

This one is for Loulu,
 he would have wanted us to take this Monday off to celebrate his going away.
So we did..
We drove out to a private beach far away, where not many people go.
We set up the umbrella, layed out the chairs, turned on some beats, put on some SPF, grabbed a wine cooler, and settled down in the sun for some nice relaxation time.
My dad went on a long beach walk with Max.
Nick threw sand, and mud at me. (Of course I threw it back, there we were acting like kids again..).
Mum actually layed out, and got a little sun.
A boat pulled up close by, they were two drunk older people, listening to some oldddddies, and dancing, having a good ol' time. Another boat pulled up later on around the bend, they were really quiet.
After dad got back from his, what seemed to be three hour walk, mum and I ventured off..
It was nice walking the long, quiet beach, just being in nature is a great place to be.
As we were walking back around the bend, then sun was going down, the Ghost Crabs were coming out, the waves were slightly crashing.. and there was Nick running with Max.
We all watched the sun go down, so pretty.. just what we all needed after this weekend.
I miss you Loulu..

Sunday out on the river..

Even though this was a sad weekend for the family, we decided to make the best of it.
 After my brother got back from his girlfriends Easter Party, we all went out on the river. We went to this little island with a beach called Cotton Island. As soon as we got there Nick and Britt (girlfriend), of course got into mud.. mum and I walked the beach, and dad went and picked up trash! What a great man my daddy is! After mum and I walked, we found a spot on the sand, and just sat down and watched the sun set.. it was so relaxing. After Nick and Britt finished playing in the mud, they went swimming, and then I made them take pictures. Of course I had to get a in a few of them. My brother always hates taking pictures, but he's so good at it.
As we were all sitting there, Nick found a crab, he named him Tudu.. he was soo sweet! He put him on my mum, and Tudu started crawling on her.. mum kinda didn't like that very much.. so he put Tudu back in his hole. Once dad came back with a big bag of trash, it was time to set off back home. The air was warm, just like the bath water that was below my feet, the stars were white, and twinkling, the salt air was breathtaking, I loved it. That moment was perfect.

Hi Easter Bunny..

Happy Easter to you all!
 I hope you all have a beautiful holiday!
The Easter Bunny sure does leave some goooooood baskets around my house!
Lot's of tasty candy like Peeps, Malted Eggs, Chocolate covered Marshmallow Bunnies, Reese's, Almond Joy.. and let's not forget Cadbury Eggs! Yummmm!

Hello lover...

I'm in love..

Flowers are one of the things that can turn my frown upside down!
They just make me feel all lovey-dovey inside..
