I love picking out pumpkins, and then carving them. However, ever since I went away to college 6 years ago, I really haven't done it. My family would always go to the local farm to buy pumpkins when we were in IL, but since we moved to MA, it's always getting our pumpkins at the local grocery store. But one thing I used to love growing up was going to Freight Fest at Six Flags. That's one thing I will always remember doing. I don't know, why, but I just used to love it. I would love going to Six Flags during the summer and everything, but going during Freight Fest would just be the best, as all the employees would be dressed up and everything.
One thing I do enjoy about being in New England now, is that all the leaves changing, as there is way more trees around here then in IL. Taking a drive anywhere around here is so pretty!
I do need to go buy a pumpkin so I can have it at my place, but maybe I'll just paint this one. Cleaning up the pumpkin stuff was never one of the things I liked....

Animals and Cars

If I could be a car - I would love to be a Jeep! I don't really know why - probably because I've always have wanted a Jeep! Not a jeep wrangler - but a Jeep Cherokee. That way I could go play up in the mountains and stuff, and not have to go hiking! I get out of breath with my asthma sometimes.
And for an animal? I would love to be a puppy! I just love how everyone plays with them and gives them so much attention and everything. I would love to be a lil puppy that never grows up!

Elementary School Memories...

Let's see...I'll start with the sad, and end up on a better note!
The worst memory I have, is probably just the saddest. When I was in 3rd grade, my classmate passed away. I can't remember what kind of disease he had, but we all knew he was sick, and one Sunday I was at church, and the priest made the annoucements of who had passed that week, and Matthew was in there. I remember going to school the next day, and the entire school was so quiet. Matthew wasn't one of my close friends, but I had gone to school with him since kindergarten, and he was in my CCD class. So it hit hard, but not as bad as it would have been if I had known him better....
On to my best memory...that would have to be in 2nd grade. I had the coolest teacher EVER. Mr. Krugly stood on our desks, always made us laugh - and last but certainly not least - taught us how to write in cursive with shaving cream! To this day I get a lil smile on my face every time I see shaving cream! It was such a creative way, and like my mom said later on, it was a great way to clean the desks!

I should have put in my latest post that the day John came home for the weekend, he sent me sunflowers (my favorite!) I knew something was up when he knew I had the day off and he told me to stay at home. Well, that's because he wanted to make sure I got these gorgeous flowers! They were to celebrate our 1 year anniversary because we were celebrating the weekend he was home instead of doing it tomorrow - on the 14th! But I did want to show you all a pic of these great big sunflowers!

Painted Cows

All these pics were taken last weekend when John was home visiting. These were right outside the one train station. There's so many different ones all over Boston and I guess they'll be auctioning them off within the next few weeks for charity! And sadly, these pics are the only ones I took all weekend! :(

It's FINALLY Friday!!!

I've been waiting for this day to come ever since I came home from Pittsburgh! John finally is coming home for the next 4 days! I can't wait to see him around 5 tonight at the train station! :) I really don't want Monday night to come, because that's when he's leaving though! But we're going to have a really great 4 days together! Oh I'm sooo excited! And now I have to go finish cleaning up my apartment!

There's a few things in life that I really would like...
I would really like to settle down with a guy (and I would really like it to be with the boy I'm with now) and for once, I really do want to have kids. Mind you I just want one, maybe two at the most. But I've always said how I didn't want kids, but lately, I've realized that's what I would really want. I would love to be financially secure. I'm making it by just barely now on my own, I would love to be able to be with somebody and know that I'm okay. Not just financially but having someone to depend on. Well, at least just to be there for me. And I would love it that when and if the time comes, I would be able to take care of my parents when the time would come. For the first time in my life, I want a family! And if I finally rid myself of these damn allergies, I'd also love to have a dog or two as well - but that's not that important to me as the rest of things!
....that's what I'd really like...

Random ME!

Favorite TV show: I used to always say Friends and ER, now it's 24!!!

Best date you ever went on: Probably the first real big date me and my boyfriend went on right after we started dating. It was my 23rd birthday, and he took me to Providence (about 1/2 hour from here) and we ate at Fire and Ice (which is SUCH a good restuarant now!). Anyways, after we walked around downtown Providence as it is such a nice clean city. We then walked along the rivers where they had this "waterfire" going on. Basically in the center of the river for like 2 miles, there is little fire pits all going up and down the river. We never made it all the way down to the end, but it was such a site! And sitting there watching the fire on the water, is where he told me he loved me! It was soo incredibly romantic! And now I wish he was here and not 600 miles away so I could run and give him a big kiss as I miss him so much!!

Your most fave friend: Coree - she's always there for me. And she is just so much fun to be around!!

7/24 Blog Challenge

The one that really pops in my head, I was telling some of my associates the other day actually! I was probably in the 3rd or 4th grade, and I was playing soccer with my best friend who lived right behind me. Me and Ian were in my yard, having a good time, we always played some kind of sport. Anyways, just as Ian was about to score a goal on me, I got stung by a bee. I screeched so loud that Ian's mom came running out of their house towards me. However, because my house was closed up with central air, my mom didn't hear a thing! Anyways, come to find out Ian's mom was washing her favorite dishes and almost smashed them because I screeched so darn loudly! Thankfully I'm not allergic to bees, but to this day I can still see Ian's mom face when she realized I was okay.

Altered comp book!

Here's my latest altered comp book for John and me to use. Well I'll be the one writing in it, as he's 600 miles away. But this way we can keep track of movies we have to see. Some are ones I need to, and others are for him, but mostly they're all for me!

My Horoscope for the day!

Get things taken care of in the morning, SARA, so that you can be carefree and laid back when the evening comes. It is important for you to square things away early in your own head so that you can communicate important information to others later on. Feel free to take a non-conventional approach. It is important for you to march to the beat of your own drum instead of anyone else's.

So I'm off to be productive right now on my day off!!

Here's the latest 2 page lo I've done. It's from my first trip to Pittsburgh! I even cut out all the lettering at the bottom!

Trying out this site!

Well, here's my first post on this site. Hopefully I'll keep up with this one as I've been known to lapse on other blogs. But with the challenges coming from Val, I'm sure I'll be on here more and more!
