#Randomness

Hello guys. I thought I would make a post to tell y'all about what's going on with me right now.




I have literally been so swamped with homework, it's ridiculous. But its cool, I can deal with it.
(also explains why I have absent from the blogging world)


I am taking my permit test on Monday which means I will start driving soon. It is completely blowing my mind!!!!!  The prospect of driving freaks me out. You are putting me in charge of a 2 ton vehicile
and hoping I don't crash or something........

Confessions

Alright guys.

I have something I'd like to share with you guys that I've been dealing with my entire life.



I...














am a Disney nerd.




Side effects include:
Randomly bursting into song
Expecting animals to come help you with cleaning
Being happy all the time



If you know anyone with this condition, tell them there is nothing that can be done for them. This will affect you all your life.




Ok guys, this is literally the most random thing ever but I had to write this out. I hope you get a laugh out of this.
And since the best part of Disney is the music. Here.

(Peter Pan is my favorite!!!)

Love,

What NOT To Do On Valentine's Day

Happy feast of St. Valentine everyone!

I do not have a boyfriend or a Valentine this year. I haven't for the last couple of years and I am totally ok with that. I'm only 17, I'll wait for the right one.

Even though I don't have a Valentine, I still have a few words of wisdom I can impart on you lovely people :)

Here's what not to do on Valentine's Day:


1. Complain about your singledom and cry in your room with chocolate.
(BTW singledom is totally a word, I just made it up :))

This will get you nowhere. Be happy. Even though you don't have a boyfriend to spend today with, Valentine's can still be fun. Go out with your friends. Walk around town, go out to dinner, have a sleepover, make fun of all the lovey-dovey couples you see.(Nicely. and not necessarily in that order)(And I suggest quietly too-Kat) 

2. Post on social media that you are #singleandproud.
Just don't do it. You might actually be single and proud of it and that's ok. But if you post about…

Prayers For Future Husband

Hello!

It's my turn to post on future husband prayers so here we go!




I don't know what he struggles with, you do.
I don't know his dreams, but you do.
I don't know his past, but you do.
Help me know how to pray for him today,
before I even know him.




If I marry: He must be tall that when he is on his knees he reaches all the way to heaven. His shoulders must be broad enough to bear the burden of a family. His lips must be strong enough to smile, firm enough to say no, and tender enough to kiss. Love must be so deep that it takes its stand in Christ and so wide that it takes in the whole lost world. He must be active enough to save souls. He must be big enough to be gentle and great enough to be thoughtful. His arms must be strong enough to carry a little child.


Dear Lord Jesus, it's so amazing that You can see my future husband now. You know him. You love him. Lord, since you know the man You have designed for me, I pray that any other relationship will be unappealing to him. I…

Growing Up: Awkward and Awesome

I Don't Want To Grow Up!

"I want to stay single and ride through the glen firing arrows into the sunset"  (Disney) 

Or as Lia would say "Take me to Neverland!" (also Disney. Duh) 
(She has a HUGE crush on the Peter Pan from OUAT, BTW) 

Why do we have to grow up?


So here are some Awkward and Awesome parts of growing up


AWKWARD: People talk to you in the grocery store and you automatically look over your shoulder for Mum. Also most of the time it's dudes. I'm sorry, I know a lot of girls are dreaming of the day when random guys will ask them for their number or just strike up a conversation....but it is really annoying. When you and your brother go out to Chipotle, people think you are a couple. When you go out to eat and people think you are ordering a alcoholic drink and you just have to look at them and say, "I'll have tea."  (Ok. This only happened once) You take a quiz on "How Responsible Are You" and it's like "95%! We gu…

Music of the Week #7

Hello all!

I can't believe I've already done 7 weeks of this!

This week.... one of my favorite musicals

Phantom of the Opera!!

Backstory time!
I was first introduced to this musical when I was four years old. The movie had just come out and my sisters bought it. I swear they watched more than once a day :) So little ol' me also listened to it a lot.
Soon enough, I was walking around the house singing 'Angel of Music'. I have loved this musical ever since. My sister actually got the book for me for Christmas. I thought I would  like the book and I do somewhat........ But that's a whole other post so I will continue with the music.

(Side note, I will be posting the music from the 25th anniversary edition rather that the movie)

Music of the Night
Okay, I know I previously had this one in Music of the Week #3 but I have to post it again.
I love this song so much. I could listen to this on repeat for days and still never get tired of it.


All I Ask of You

Praying for Your Future Husband

These prayers are both for praying for guidance in finding your future husband, praying that God gives him strength now in any trials he may be going through, and for patience until he arrives.

The first prayer is a Novena to Saint Joseph, the spouse of Mary. This novena (say it 9 days in a row) isn't especially for future spouses, but you can customize the request



"Oh Saint Joseph whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the Throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires.

Oh Saint Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord, so having engaged here below your heavenly power I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of fathers.

Oh Saint Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while he reposes near your heart. Press him in my name and kiss his fine head and ask him to return the favor …

Courtship Vs Dating

This always REALLY confused me.

What? I'm not going to COURT someone! Weird. I'm going to date people! I'm not going to sit on a couch. (In front of my family. Awkward)

I want to go to dinner. To movies.

What do you mean dating ruins marriage? My brother dated and he married the girl and they are happy!



Here is what I didn't understand.

Courtship doesn't mean sitting on the couch and playing the organ and serving him pie you made (though you could do that if you really wanted to)

The difference between dating and courtship is the reason  you do it.

If you are dating in the hopes of finding your future spouse, you are courting. If you are dating because everyone is doing it, because your bored, etc you're doing it for the wrong reason.


So now you know!

Also, if somebody asks you on a date, or asks you to date them you do not have to scream: "Dating Bad! Courtship Good!"

Dating, for the sake of marriage, is still called dating.


Have a blessed Saint Val…

Hello February!

Today is the first day of February! We are now one month further into the year 2017.
What do we have to show for it? Have we kept up our goals? Are we getting closer to achieving our dreams?

Or are you sitting on the computer all day reading blogs? (Don't feel too bad. That's basically what I've been doing, except I have tea. Plus I like this blog. )

This is the beginning of a new month. It's time to start working again! To start sprinting toward your dreams again,

But first you should finish this blog post.


Many of my protestant friends are very surprised that the Catholics read the Bible.
Honesty? Come on. We were the ones who combined the Old and New Testament, kept and protected the Bible all these years...(Sorry. Ranting)

Since this is the Month of Marriage, (that was St. Valentine's real story you know. Saving marriages.) I suggest reading the book of Tobit.  There is a paper somewhere explaining how the book of Tobit has every Church teaching on Marriage an…
