Singing in the Rain!

Hello to all my lovely blog readers out there!

Yes, indeed you are all lovely to me! So you are probably wondering what on earth I've been smoking or why I'm so perfectly pleasant today?! Well there are a few reasons.

1) I woke up this way. (I'm not a morning person, so this rarely happens..once in a blue moon.) I practically woke up with this little kick in my step. I don't know where it came from, but I'm enjoying it.

2) I look out the window and it's raining. Unlike many people, I adore the rain...especially when we've been missing out on so much of it!

3) I instantly get a song in my head and now must share it with you. <3

4) One of my amazing friends, (totally surprises me with a blog tribute to me!) Check out the rest of her blog while you are there. :)

5) I decided to switch gears today on my blog, it feels good to do something a little different! In saying that, we had a pretty relaxing weekend. Yesterday, our good friend, Marquis came over and did a little photo shoot with us. I'm eagerly anticipating the other pictures, but here's a picture preview!

6) Heather at has honored me with this super sweet bloggy award! Thanks, Heather! :)

The rules are to share 7 facts about myself and then pass this award on to 7 other bloggers.

1. I'm incredibly introverted. Don't get me wrong I love people and I love spending time with others, but my alone time is very important and very precious to me.

2. I trust too easily and often get hurt by others. I try to learn from my mistakes, but I often just want to see the best in others.

3. I'm realizing that I'm more of a Sci-Fi geek than I originally thought. ;)

4. My ultimate dream was to be on Broadway...since I don't possess musical talent or dancing ability..I live out my fantasy through Glee and my beloved musicals.

5. I value my faith in God tremendously, even if I fail at it everyday.

6. I've always wanted to dye my hair red. I'm just too chicken. My hair naturally has auburn highlights in it...but still....

7. I've been reading the same book for a few months now. It's a collection of short stories. I'll review it on here, when I finally finish it. The review should be pretty interesting and colorful!

Now to share the love with some wonderful bloggy friends of mine!
