A is for Ariel and Aurora

I couldn't pick one single character for A, so I had to choose two!

                                         A is for Ariel


I am really similiar to Ariel. Not because I have red hair (mine is brown), but because I can be stubborn and am always determined to do things my way. I'm also similiar to Ariel because I can be reluctant and have a really strong conscience. Ariel's reluctant to go with Flotsam and Jetsam to Ursula's cave, and again when Ursula is trying to get her to sign the contract. I love Ariel because we have a lot of the same personality traits, and I also love belting out the lyrics to "Part of Your World" in the shower (in private, of course!)!






A is for Aurora


A is for Aurora. An interesting fact about 'Sleeping Beauty' is that it's my all-time favorite Disney Movie! Also, did you know that Aurora only has 18 lines of spoken dialogue in the entire film? Also interesting are the facts that Aurora is one of the only princesses with both parents alive, and that Aurora never really meets Maleficient. All the other princesses know their villains. I love Aurora because of her kindness and compassion towards others.

Have you ever been inspired by a book character to do something? Who was the character and what was it? 


One of my favorite books of all time is Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. It's so inspirational and life-changing. If you haven't read it, you should! It deals with a young man (Mitch) who has a relationship with his former teacher, Morrie, who has ALS. For those of you who don't know, ALS is a terminal disease in which the muscles are gradually paralized. 

It just so happens that I have a former substitute teacher from high school who has been diagnosed with ALS. She's not doing so well right now. Because of Mitch, I too have been visiting her at home and keeping in touch with her. It's been really hard to watch her body decline while her mind remains intact.


Please check back on Monday for my A-Z challenge theme reveal!!

You have been WARNED!

It's almost April 1st, which means it's almost time for the A-Z challenge! I'm super excited because I have an all new theme for this year. It's so great that I will be sharing it on March 23. I will say this though: It involves Disney. In the mean time, enjoy this picture of Me and Mickey Mouse!

Question of the Week: Do you have any furry friends? Share a picture! 


Unfortunately, no. I had an amazing cat named Winnie who died when I was 12. Unfortunately, for right now, I have to stick with stuffed animals as pets...but real ones are much more fun!



Side note: I am getting ready for the A-Z challenge, which will begin April 1. Please check back to see what my theme is!

Question of the Week: Hard print (real thing) or Kindle/Nook, which is your favorite?

Hard print for sure. I need to have something tangible in my hands when I read!

Question of the Week: Do you have any fun collections (other than books)?


Yes. I have a collection of Vera Bradley items and a collection of Disney mugs.

I am hopelessly obsessed with Vera. I usually only shop there when there's a sale, but nonetheless I have accumulated a lot of stuff! I use it every day. My favorite patterns have pinks and purples in them

As for Disney, my collection is small- only two mugs! I hope to grow it little by little. My oldest mug is a minnie mouse mug. It's black with white polka dots and has a big red bow in the center with white polka dots on it. It's absolutely adorable! My other one that I just purchased at Disney World is a real-life version of Chip from Beauty and the Beast! The mug looks exactly like him, except it doesn't talk. :( I think talking objects are more fun...
