Writers Workshop...Celebrity Experience!

Mama's Losin' It

And the prompt I choose this week is:

Write about an experience you have had with a celebrity.


So this story was back in..lets see...in 2004! I was 15 and on my way back home ( PA at that point in time) from a hair cutting course in Indianapolis , IN!
Myself and my friend Erin were flying out of the main airport there, now, you must understand a few things! One..my bag as overweight and I has taken a few things out and was zipping it back up, Two, the place we had done the course at require the girls to wear skirts, so needless to say, I was sitting in the middle of the airport, straddling my suit case trying to zip it up, in a skirt no less!
As I am doing this my friend Erin screams.."Look! There is Ray Comfort!" Well that was cool in itself cause he is a really cool guy! All of sudden I notice right behind him somone fare more famus then him, and somone who worked the ministry with him. You guess it, Kurt Cameron!
Do keep in mind I am still zipping my suit case in my skirt!
Well..Kurt just happend to look are way right then! I was horrified! So, I just smiled and waved! He gave me this " what in the heck is she doing" look and kinda half waved nicely back! I was about to die!
Well..we got all pulled together and went to go to are turmenal..Erin then relized we were in the same one as Ray and Kurt! She wanted to go find them in talk to them! So we went on the hunt! Well, we could not find them at all! I stopped by a line of chairs and told Erin were not going to find them! Just as I said this I looked to my left and relized they were sitting right beside us! Well Erin saw that and got scared and we left...Sadly I did not really get to actually meet them..but..oh well! It was a funny experience to say the least!

The only other real time I have had was Winter Jam 2010 when I got to meet Michael Tait and Robert Pierre!

ok..Go on over and pick a prompt!!

Im doing my first Top 2 Tuesday and joining in the fun over at The Undeomestic Momma!

This week its: Top 2 Favorite Things About Summer!

1. Tanning:
I get so white over the winter time I always tell my friends that my legs could stop traffic! Thats for real how bad they get! So I love when summer comes around and I can go plop down on the beach at the lake and just let my skin get all that nice Vitamin D plus some color!!

2. Summer Cloths:
I love wearing all the fun summer cloths! There is always something new and cute out and I can never get enough of it! I LOVE my flip flops and were them so much that I have to throw them away at the end of the summer!

3. Nail Polish:
Ok..yes...I am doing a third one..but..oh well! I know that Nail Polish is all year round, but in the summer time, you can see my toes! I love going all wacky colored! I dont even bother with what colors im wearing! I just have fun!

Weekend Update!

Dont now how much you all have heard on the news but Saterday we had a Tornado here in French Camp! It hit 3 miles down the road from my house! We were all in the hallway and it was the scaryest thing ever! You could see the sky go from light to allmost black green!
Were it hit it took out TONS of houses! I dont have pictures up on my computer yet but I found this video:




All this has made me think allot! How much I should live today as if I dont have tommorrow. Those homes that are gone,,,those people that are gone,,they could have been or even should have been me! The tornado was coming down right on top of us...and last min the wind changed just enough to move it over before it touched down! That was the hand of the Lord, I know that! You want to argue with me about it go ahead, But I know that God was watching over me and it was not my time to go!
I went out and help the Vol.Fire Department after we were given the all clear! I worked a road block for 4 hrs! Never had so many people cuss me about before in my life! One guy got out of his car up in my face he was so made at me! People were wanting to get down to there family that had gotten hit but we were not allowed to let anyone down there! One guy allmost ran one of the other Vol. Over...we called the police on the walkie and they snaged him alittle ways down the road!


On a happy note: I have a new blog desgin! Let me now how you like it!!

XOXO

Writers Workshop - Star Letter!

So, there could be two reasons why I am doing Writers Workshop today!
One could be, Im allmost to 100 post and I really am excited about my giveaway, or two, I really am excited about the promt i am gonna do! I think its a little bit of both!

ok...so the promnt I choose this week is:

2.) Write a letter to a reality star of your choice.

Now..I warn you..I am not sure the "real" who were suppost to pick... and the person I have picked im sure is all wrong..but...I have the letter all my my head, and its been a topic that has been nagging at me..so..this may be all wrong....but maybe its ok! :) You be the judge!

My letter is to.....Channing Tatum!


Dear Mr.Tatum:

Greetings from a small little town in Mississippi...yes..we do watch movies and hear the news way out here in the boonies :)
I have allways been a big fan of the movies you play in! I think your acting is one of a kind! I have allways been a fan of Step Up and She's The Man! I have yet to go see Dear John but thats on my "To Do List"!

There has been so much uproar out there about your new movie you are doing...of your life! I have heard so many people talk how they suddenly dont like you anymore because of you life background! I have even heard people say that it is wrong that you are making a movie to tell your life and being so "real" about it!
I would like to say THANK YOU! I belive more people out there today need to be real about there life! You are stepping out there and sharing with the world things that maybe do not make you so proud anymore. For someone as in the world light as you are...that is a big step! I think you should be commended for that!

Me, well, I am still not sure about how I feel with the movie having allot of "real" stuff in it...I think maybe a diffrent approuch could have been taken..but then again...I have not seen it yet ( its not out yet) and I cannot be the one to judge!

I shall end this little note by saying Thank You Channing for stepping up and being the bigger person! I hope and pray your example will lead others on to! Your showing us just how human even actors can be!

Ok...your turn! Go pick a promnt over at Writers Workshop and link up!

Old Fashion...Letter Writing!


Yes, I still love doing hand written letters! There is just something thrilling about putting pen to paper! I love looking for cool stationary! I love finding that " just right" pen. And most of all..I love seing mail in my mailbox!



It is very diffrent to see letters now a days! We have become such a "tecky" world that you see an email if your lucky, facebook message or even a wall post. We dont even get much of that anymore..Its just a txt!
Dont get me wrong, I have a facebook, and I txt ALLOT! But that old fashion letter writing...well...that I still love!




So if your in need of a good hand written letter..shoot me an email..and ill be glad to send you one!

A Weekend To Praise The Lord For Little Things!

This weekend was my weekend to thank the Lord for the little things!
Yesterday I went to see Ballet Magnificat! It was amazing! We saw Deliver Us! It was so powerfull! I sat in my chair amazed at how music and dancing could speak to my heart so much! That was a little thing I praised the Lord for!
We had a 2 hour drive back in the bus, and as we were pull in on campus one of the students in the bus yelled " Fire!" We looked out the left side window and saw flames coming out of one of are staff familys upstairs windows! Starting to melt the siding and heading for the tree's in the front yard! I allmost called 911, somone else beat me to it! I jumped in my car and flew over to one of the boys dorms and busted into there front room...Josh and Steve were sitting there and looked up at me " guys, I need a fire extinguisher, I need it NOW and im NOT kidding!" The only other time I have seen those boys move that fast is when they play football! My car has never gone from 0 to 45 so fast in its life!
Are Vol.Fire Department is right next to my house and they got there SO fast! They got the fire out ( only was in the 2 boys room and got some in the parents room) as they were still in the house checking this out the fire started back up twice! They finally threw some cloths out of the boys room with live embers on them and hosed them down.
Are community is very close and EVERYONE was up there..helping move stuff out of the lower part of the house so there would be no smoke damage, handing out water..or as some of us did including me..stood there for moral support!
The fire was out and I got back to my house about 11pm. We are praising the Lord for the small things! The hole house did not go..none of the kids were home when it happened ( there parents are gone of a cruise for the 20th wedding Anniv.) and they had just built a new home up the road and it just got done! Thank you Jesus for an amazing Vol. Fire Department that works so hard for us!
A BIG cheer out for the AMAZING French Camp Vol. Fire Department! You guys put so much time into that, you get there so fast, and you work your guts out! And you dont get payed a cent for doing it! THANK YOU for being there for us!

I am so excited when I can thank Jesus for the little things in life..so often we dont..and this weekend...I needed to be doing that! THANK YOU LORD!!!

XOXO
