My swap package is here!!

I opened my package to find 7 friendly little snakes waiting for me!

Then they all came out to meet me.

But then as I unpacked more stuffing, there was an 8th straggler, he says hello to everyone.

The snakes helped me unpack all of the packages so carefully wrapped by Ms. Agatha Vablatsky.

the snakes then introduced me to all of their friends who had been sleeping in the package. There were 2 stuffed snakes, one gummy snake and a little green snake (not pictured) that was already playing with the kitty cats. He wiggles so the cats will chase him! Oh, and the wooden slithering snake.

Then I got to unwrap the soft yummy sock yarn! It is knitpicks essentials in "Ivy". It is a gorgeous green with slight variations, because it is kettle dyed. :)

Here is the bias knit Slytherin scarf. Also, the little cat toy snakey sneaked into this picture!

I then unwrapped this amazing Golden Snitch tape measure. Unfortunately for me it was the only snitch I 'caught' this semester!

I got a set of my favorite knitting needles: Knitpicks harmony DPN!!
There is also a notebook full of snake sock patterns for my knitting enjoyment.

And last but not least, the AMAZING bag! I can't say enough about this bag. It is the design Minee came up with, I beleive it is called Nagini's Dream? It is so wonderful! I have two pictures of it here, I hope they can do it a fraction of the justice it deserves!

Agatha, I can't thank you enough for what you did for me. It was an absolutely amazing package! I do have to show one more picture (I know there are a lot of them) but Princess Fiona enjoyed the 8 mini snakes that accompanied my package. Thank you so much!

My Personality

You Are Miss Piggy

A total princess and diva, you're totally in charge - even if people don't know it.

You want to be loved, adored, and worshiped. And you won't settle for anything less.

You're going to be a total star, and you won't let any of the "little people" get in your way.

Just remember, piggy, never eat more than you can lift!

I know this is a HP swap, but I am obsessed:


Bella: I love you.
Edward: You are my life now.

Edward: And so the lion fell in love with the lamb.
Bella: What a stupid lamb.
Edward: What a sick, masochistic lion.

Edward: As you were sleeping, you said my name. You spoke so clearly, at first I thought you'd woken. But you rolled over restlessly and mumbled my name once more, and sighed. The feeling that coursed through me then was unnerving, staggering. And I knew I couldn't ignore you any longer.

Edward: If I could dream at all, it would be about you. And I'm not ashamed of it.

Alice: It's been almost a century that Edward's been alone. Now he's found you. You can't see the changes that we see, we who have been with him for so long. Do you think any of us want to look into his eyes for the next hundred years if he loses you?

Jessica: Edward Cullen is staring at you.

Bella: I was afraid... because, for, well, obvious reasons, I can't stay with you. And I'm afraid that I'd like to stay with you, much more than I should.

Edward: I should have left long ago. I should leave now. But I don't know if I can.

Bella: So what you're saying is, I'm your brand of heroin?
Edward: Yes, you are exactly my brand of heroin.

Bella: I'm here... which, roughly translated, means I would rather die than stay away from you.

Edward: Your hair looks like a haystack, but I like it.

Edward: Do I dazzle you?
Bella: Frequently.

Edward: It makes me... anxious to be away from you. I wasn't joking when I asked you to try not to fall in the ocean or get run over last Thursday. I was distracted all weekend, worrying about you.

Edward: It would be more... prudent for you not to be my friend. But I'm tired of trying to stay away from you, Bella.

Bella:You're doing it again.
Edward: What?
Bella: Dazzling me.
Edward: Oh.
Bella: It's not your fault. You can't help it.

Edward:If leaving is the right thing to do, then I'll hurt myself to keep from hurting you, to keep you safe.
Bella: And you don't think I would do the same?
Edward: You'd never have to make the choice.

Edward: Bella, I couldn't live with myself if I ever hurt you. You don't know how it's tortured me. The thought of you, still, white, cold - to never see you blush scarlet again, to never see that flash of intuition in your eyes when you see through my pretenses - it would be unendurable. You are the most important thing to me now. The most important thing to me ever.

Edward: If you let anything happen to yourself - anything at all - I'm holding you personally responsible.

Bella: I miss you.
Edward: I know, Bella. Believe me, I know. It's like you've taken half my self away with you.
Bella: Come and get it, then.
Edward: Soon, as soon as I possibly can. I will make you safe first.
Bella:I love you.
Edward: Could you believe that, despite everything I've put you through, I love you, too?
Bella: Yes, I can, actually.
Edward: I'll come for you soon.
Bella: I'll be waiting.

Edward: As long as it makes you happy, I'll be here.
Bella: You're talking about forever, you know.

Edward: Friends don't let friends drive drunk.
Bella: Drunk?
Edward: You're intoxicated by my very presence.

Edward: Would I let a tree hurt you?

Edward: I will stay with you - isn't that enough?
Bella: Enough for now... Look, I love you more than everything else in the world combined. Isn't that enough?
Edward: Yes, it is enough. Enough for forever.

Independence Day

Happy holiday girls!
I had such a busy day yesterday! I had 30 people at my house to celebrate the birthday of our nation. It was so much fun. There were tons of people on my street, so much so that only one car could drive through at a time. After everyone arrived, and I FINALLY convinced Mr. Moody to start the barbeque, we sat around and chatted, and ate our home made ice cream. We all finished our desserts (plural, meaning, about 8 different desserts) we all turned our chairs around to look toward the back yard and watched the amazing firework show. You could see the firemen back behind our house in the field lighting the fireworks, and running really quickly away. It was very funny. The kiddos that were here did their own fireworks, and that included Mr. Moody. He blew up an apple with a blackkat firework. Nerdy, huh? And he's almost 30....

I hope you all had a nice holiday, and celebrated too much like I did! :)
