Movie Quote Game

In honor of my one hundred and one post I have decided to do a Movie Quote game. Well not really, It just so happens that this falls on my 101 post.

Here are the Rules:
- Leave me a comment (or several) telling me the name of the movie and the characters who say each quote. Please remember to include the number of the quote, with each guess, in your comment. That way I know which quote you are referring to.
- Please do not look up the quote online. You may ask a family member, but please do not do something like Facebook/Twitter it, asking if anyone knows what movie it's from. That is considered cheating. Play fair!

By the way, all quote are from different movies. 

1. Character 1: "Okay whatever you have done to the heating system, please undo it. There are only so many layers one can remove without violating the dress code.” [pause] “Am I hallucinating? Is that ...a hat with a fan in it?"
Character 2: "Desperate times demand desperate measures. "
Character 3: "We already tried to reverse the switch and crank the heat back down."
Character 1: "I don't like the word 'tried'"

2. Character 1: “My little baby, off to destroy people.”

3. Character 1: "I ain't going to smell it if that's what you want."

4. Character 1: "What was that for?"
Character 2: "Because you have always been so kind to me, and I won't be seeing you again since I'm killing myself once we reach the honeymoon suite."
Character 1: "Won't that be nice. She kissed me."

5. Character 1: "I like you temporarily!"

6. Character 1: "I wonder what grass tastes like."

7. Character 1: "This has taught me a lesson not to stake my word of honor on cows."

8. Character 1: "If I knew how much you all cared for me, I would've moved away a long time ago!"

9. Character 1: "Has an invitation arrived for a party at the ----?"
Character 2: No, thank Heaven. The ---- are nice people, but we should have to go outside to get there.

10. Character 1: "Well, Mr. Kralik, what do you think now?"
Character 2: I think people who like to smoke candy and listen to cigarettes will love it.

11. Character 1: "It's just a handshake. Here let me show you." [holds out hand]
Character 2: Nothing's happening.
Character 1: "Uh, no, no. I need your hand first."

12. Character 1: "Ability to speak does not make you intelligent"

13. Character 1: "What made you come back?"
Character 2: "I saw them... I saw the stars."

14.Character 1: "Quiet."
Character 2: "Do you hear something?"
Character 1: "No, I just want you to be quiet."

Have fun guessing! I'll post the answers... sometime in the next weeks. :)

Speech and Debate Camp and Research Camp

I just got back from the best two weeks of this summer! My brother Luke, Dad and I all drove up to Colorado to attend the Training Minds Ministries’ Speech and Debate Camp and Research Camp.
The first week was strictly research. We researched 24 hours in 4 days, and learned lots about Russia, Nuclear Proliferation, Iran Sanctions, Soft Power, Hegemony, etc. Needless to say it was long but extremely fun! During this week we created the Blue Book Lite, compiling all the research we did.
The second week started with Interpretation and Platform, the two areas in the Speech Category. Luke and I learned everything about interp. from characterizing, finding a piece, and picking an interp. category. Speech Training lasted a day and a half, then immediately started into the limited prep category.
Technically the 3 limited prep choices (apologetics, impromptu, and exempt) are under speech. Apologetics consist of a 6 minute speech prepared in 6 minutes about an ethical question (there are 100 questions you could possibly get). Impromptu is a 5 minute speech, prepared in 2 minutes, about almost anything! People have gotten anything from paint chips to quotes etc. Exempt is a 5 minute speech, prepared in 30 minutes, about anything (anything meaning they could ask you to talk about anything) political that’s happened in the last 90 days. I chose not to do Limited Prep, because I know I’m not that great at thinking on the spot, but it turns out any form a debate contains some “Limited Prep”.
Once both Limited Prep and Interpretation/Platform camps were done Debate Camp started. Luke and I did team policy debate, which basically means we debate with a partner. And since we’re going to be partners for the year, it worked out really well. We were so overwhelmed with the knowledge we got from the 1 ½ days of Team Policy lectures! There is so much you need to know and do!
The last 1 ½ days we actually got to debate (called a Round Robin). Though we only won 1 out of 4 rounds it was extremely fun and were learned a ton from that practice!
This year I’ll be doing Team Policy with Luke and either Dramatic Interpretation or Humorous Interpretation though I’m not sure whether I will be doing a duo interpretation or not. In the next years’ I may want to try Impromptu or Apologetics.
Luke will be doing Team Policy and Apologetics this year.

Overall we had a blast at camp and I can’t imagine trying to debate without having first had that experience!

My Do Hard Things Summer!

This Summer I decided I wanted to do a hard thing x100. That's right 100 hard things, but since the summers I third gone I decided to do 50 hard things this summer. I'll post them here, probably once a week or so until I reach 50 or surpass it!
Lets get stared:
1) Successfully listed 1 item per day on Etsy for 6 days!
2) Began to run again and loved it!
3) Sewed 3 new Diaper bag all are the same style. I'll be listing them next week

That all I can think of at the moment, though I know there are a few more.
Blessings all,

Not the post I wish it was

Please excuse the lack of post, my life has been a wavy blur for many weeks now and it won't stop until July! As school finally slows down summer just picks up.
There's sewing, piano, reading, running, etsy, etc. to look forward too! I do want to make a point to post more often this summer, but its on the bottom of the list.
Hope you all have a blessed day!

"Kevins a girl?!"

That's what I half expected Seth to say after we found out Prince Caspian had babies! Its very interesting actually. Guinea pigs are pregnant for 60-70 days and really only fill out the last 2 weeks. We knew Caspian was gaining weight but we didn't know why. She had three pretty girls, though we named them before we knew there gender.

Snickerdoodle is a pure mix of her mommy and daddy.



In the pictures they're just over 2 weeks, I believe. Right now they're a little over 3 weeks old.


Note: I'm extremely sorry for the lack of post, my computer monitor died a few weeks ago, meaning I can barely see my screen. So I'm not able to be on much.

Belated Birthday

This year really did fly. My 14th birthday wasn't too long ago.
It all began with breakfast at Cracker Barrel with Mom and Dad. I fell in love... with buttermilk pecan pancakes that is. So yummy! And their little syrup bottles turned out to be very handy.

Once we arrived home we, well, didn't do much. Later we headed downtown to a park for a picnic.A very small park for a very cold picnic on a bench. Then we tried what was supposed to be a really big and great fabric store. Imagine a giant store with pretty, bright, just filled with isles of fabric and a whole wall of ribbon.

Unfortunately it wasn't like that. It was big and did have a whole wall of ribbon, but it was dark, dingy and as Allison, Luke and I thought about it later seemed more like a thrift store. I still prefer Jo-ann and Hobby Lobby.
So we headed over to Ikea to pick up some storage boxes for my room, it would have been much nicer if I wasn't so tired. Fortunately I got to sleep in the car on the way home.

Once home I tried getting my room somewhat more organized. Then my new bedspread came in! I was absolutely thrilled.
Not too long after that we ate a delicious dinner and then I opened presents, which consisted of: several necklaces and earrings, bobbins, a new watch and some different size embroidery hoops for my sewing machine. And from friends I received: a small needle book, pillow case kit, gift card, purple pin magnet, royalty cuter and scissor sharpener.  

It was then that we decided to run to Hobby Lobby to look into some canvas panels to make a bulletin   board for my room. It looks great too! Then we decided we'd better run by Hancock to get some fabric to go on the bulletin board and then we decided to try Jo-anns too. So finally we got home around 9 o'clock for cake, which was very yummy.

It was a fun long birthday, although next year I think I'd rather stay home. ;)

A Lesson Learned... I hope.

I like pens.

Who wouldn't!? They're very handy. Just never wash them. Then don't turn out to great.

Seriously, I've witnessed it!

 I desinged a new purse a few weeks ago.
 I drew a flower on the front pocket to sew over, and later washed it.

But when I washed it... it turned... SPOTTED! You can imagine my horror as my dad showed me not one but two pens I had placed in the bag earlier to test it out. (and you can imagine my Moms horror when she saw her spotted dyer)

I tried, to very little avail, to remove the dreaded spots but alas they would not leave. I must admit that hairspray worked for a little while but then alas the ink began to set and it was hopeless!
The lesson? Well if you ever ink something use hairspray on it immediately. ☺

The Paisley Handbag


New Design. It has 5 pocket/pouches. One on the outside, one big one on the inside and 3 elastic pouches. I also doubled stitched it all around for look and for hold.
I designed this purse some time back but only tested it a few weeks ago. This is number two. The Embroidery design is called "Peaceful Paisley" which I purchased off Embroidery Library. There will be many more pictures of different things I have/will be sewing in the next few weeks.
