My dream came true!

Well, it seems that whatever we want, no matter how hard we want it always takes time. Time, which I myself, hate waiting for. I'm not one who likes to wait, so how long has it been since the eldest of my siblings could have gotten married? About six-seven years actually, so yeah. You'd think if you didn't know me, that I'm some old person who is using a walking stick to get around, the way I'm writing this post, so I'd just better go on and tell you: (Caps lock on. :) )


So finally I'm going to be an Aunty! And I can't wait! The baby is due about October 17th, ten days before Braedon's birthday.
And so the wait begins, and no, I have no idea if it's a girl or a boy, but that's fine as long as I finally get my wish! Please, if you could offer up a prayer for a safe pregnancy and delivery, that'd be awesome, adn please, just keep Anna-Lisa, Braedon and their precious baby in your prayers.

God Bless

Frozen Vs Tangled from two different perspectives.

frozen-poster-cast-new (1) 

There has been a lot of discussion in our house as to which of these Disney' movies are better. Some prefer F others T but today me and mt brother Rogan are doing a blog post on what we think is better in both films. Also take note, we are in the T team. 

We'll start with the Princesses:
Rogan's Perspective :) (Vellvin adds comments now and then in red.)
Anna and Elsa- Vs Rapunzel (notice that there's only one princess in T instead of two because shes awesome enough to beat both from F)

Rapunzel- Has more character depth and is more naive and excitable.
she seems more open and happy than Elsa and a little bit more than Anna (that's probably a bit unfair to Elsa though) She is also more happy with life and have you seen the amount of chores she does every day? Very accomplished. Also I love how she grows through the film.  
Elsa-I think  I did feel a bit sorry for Elsa, but I don't think she's the best roll model either, She was quiet and nice at the start but I don't like the whole 'breaking free thing' you are who you choose to be  and in saying that this is who you are now and stuff like that is Stupid. I like Elsa at the start at her coronation. Though I do like 'Let it Go' it can also seem like Elsa doesn't care about anyone anymore, it's all about her. I know she had a lonley childhood but things like 'No right, no wrong no rules for me' irkes me. 
Anna- She is a bit impulsive and a little naive. She get's a bit confused with her feelings and get's reeled in like a sea bass (Sorry inside joke.) A great joke too. :) Anna just seems very tursting, in Rapunzel this is an advantage, in Anna it's not because she trusts' Hans and hes not one to be trusted, but serously we were a;; rather reeled in don't you think? 

Vellvin's Perspective: (Rogan adds comments now and then in green).
Kristoff vs. Flynn Ryder
Okay, well, in my opinion Kristoff just wasn't in it enough! And I was actually rather annoyed that he didn't sing a song with Anna, seriously! They couldn't do that could they, I mean, he's the Prince! Duh!
I do agree that he should have sung a song with Anna, but Anna sings a pretty good song with Prince Hans
( which we both love)
 Kristoff was certainly sweet, kind and gentle, but how can he compete with swashbuckling Flynn Ryder and the mighty fry-pan? Sorry, couldn't resist. :P And Kristoff doesn't have a weapon and the fry pan with Flynn is interesting.

 Flynn was in it from the start whereas Kristoff was there and gone and then he came back. So in a sense, he wasn't a secondary character like Flynn who was basically a main character, Flynn was basically the Elsa of Tangled. I think Kristoff  didn't have very much character at least not as much as Flynn who by the way is awesome.
 I actually prefer Prince Hans over Kristoff, and PH seems to be in it more than Kristoff. Also, Flynn has this whole journey thought T, where he learns that what he thought he wanted wasn't what he did actually want, and he had this whole growth, and stopped being selfish and tried to get Rapunzel out of danger, seriously, he's pretty awesome! :D

Rogan's perspective on the Animals and fantasy creatures.
Sven- I admit I wasn't really touched by Sven but i think he grows a bit on you he's a bit dumb compared to Maximus. but he is quite loyal to Kristoff and is more friendly than Maximus or Pascal.
Maximus- i think Maximus is my favourite animal. He's a tough guy on the outside but sweet in his own way on the inside he also  loves apples and Sven likes carrots they both have healthy diets.

Olaf- I didn't like Olaf that much to start with but like Sven he grew on me he is sweet when Anna is freezing.
he is very happy and care free and naive (my favourite word I know)  I didn't like his song to start with either but yet again it grew on me.
The Trolls-I think I was a bit disappointed with them at first because I thought the would be big and live in a cottage and there would be less of them at least that's what I imagined but I like them now and their song.

Vellvin's Perspective:
Story line: Tangled story-line is one full of fun and enjoyment, and the finale is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful and heartbreaking. And Mother Gothel falls out the window and everything is better.
Frozen is visually stunning, that's true, but it seemed shorter to me somehow, did anyone else get that feeling?
Photo-shopped I know :)
We could go on about the music, about the villains, but truth be told, we have had enough.
We have a few differences in opinion, but smoothly we are of the same opinion. This post is not to degrade Frozen. it's a good movie, and entertaining, we are just comparing it with Tangled and in our eyes, it's not as great, that's for sure. :)

Things I love and hate to see out shopping

I live just outside a city, and chances are I go into about once a week, more so sometimes, mostly to help go shopping or to pick up siblings from work with everyone else. This does not of course include going to mass.
But there are some things that I love to see in the malls or shops, and some things that I just can't stand.
Lets start with the things I cannne stand, as these things are easier to think of. :)

1. Irresponsible teenagers. NOTE: Teenagers to me is a term used for immature young people who don't act their age. I see this a lot, a group of girls, a group of guys, who don't even see what life is about, they seem to goof around, or go shopping, or yeah, just not seem to do much that is actually constructive. I know that having fun in groups is enjoyable, but the groups I single out are the ones who seem like they've got time on their hands and no responsibility.
I know that might sound a little harsh, but there are some who seem to act like they are ten year olds, rather then the early adults that they are, and also should be acting like
Do not let the cuteness of this picture have any effect on said statement. It might look cute, but it is certainly not something I would ever want my child wearing. When I have children, that is. :)
2. Kids on leashes. I could give every parent I saw a good talking to about this, it's absolutely ridiculous, and also, it makes it seem like your little son, or little daughter, is just a dog you're taking for a walk. And this does not give your child the respect that it deserves. Also it shows that you either don't care, or that you can't be bothered to stop your child from doing things-like touching stuff that they shouldn't- and that it seems that you as a parent, aren't really parenting. Thankfully, I don't see this often, which is great, but when I do, I get really mad.
3. Inappropriate dress and/or stores. This includes people who wear immodest clothes, and also stores that put things like underwear out the front for EVERYONE TO SEE! Yes, how does that make you feel?Underwear is not for show, it is because you need it and you aren't there to show off your body either. I know that some people have not been taught about modesty, but seriously, can't you work out for yourself that you shouldn't be wearing that. Also note: I am rather judgmental when it comes to things like this.
This is me. 
4.Music! Music everywhere! Seriously there is no place that you cannot hear music, even at public bathrooms you hear it and chances are, it's not even decent, or clean music. And therefore, they shouldn't be playing it. I remember being in Kmart one time and Mum started listening to a song, and then commented on the fact that it was soooo not appropriate. Of course if they played classical/clean music I wouldn't have a problem, but more often than not, they don't.

Things I love to see when I'm out:

1.Old couples going shopping together.
I basically die of happiness when I see this. In a society where Marriage can be destroyed very easily, I love to see these couples, dressed up, and out shopping together. They just seem to scream 'commitment' to me, and that is, as we know, most important.They are seriously the cutest couples around!
Arms of children around you

2. Parents disciplining their children. I don't mean like 'You are so naughty blah blah blah' but the other day when I was out shopping with Mum and the others, we walked past a lady who had two children in her trolley, anyway one of them I think hit the other, and the Mother told him he shouldn't be doing it, but it was the way she said it as well, it was so gentle, yet she was disciplining him. Much more different than those fat mothers who loudly complain about their naughty children and yeah, they are the kind who really get on my nerves. :) Though I do understand that sometimes it is hard to be patient when you've told them for about the sixth time. :)

3. Having good service from sales' people. You know those people with the personality of a brick? Yeah, those are the kind of people I'm talking about, or the people who insist on telling you their life stories and you think. 'How does this person think they can manage to fit in there life story in under five minutes?'. I expect good service from the people who are serving me, after all, it's them who are getting paid, not me, right?
Common courtesy is very important. This is something that I like to see, but am sometimes rather disappointed with. Such as at McDonalds, but that's a story for another time. :)

Anyway I'd better go. :)

God Bless

Just Saying...

Happy St. Pat's to you all! :D
I hope you are having a great day, and of course let's not forget about the fact there is St. Pat's day, for that amazing missionary and bishop, and snake-driver. :P
And of course, being Irish, or part Irish is awesome! :D Oh, and don't forget to wear green. :0

Things have been really busy around here recently. I've actually found it a bit hard to post and so here I am finally trying to post something before I need to do something. NOTE: This may go as far back as a month as I haven't done an update post in a while
What I've been doing:
I don't know how long this picture has been around, I love it anyway. :)
Reading.....The Bracken Trilogy, I've almost finished book one, a friend lent it to me and I think that they are pretty good! :D I finished 'All Fall Down' the other day, it did take me a while though, and I actually wasn't that impressed with it. :P Which is a bit irritating. I also finished At Aboukir and Acre by G. A. Henty I love it how in all of the books the hero ends up marrying and it just has such a 'happily ever after' feeling to it. :)


Arrow is amazing it is awesome! It is wonderful. I'm working on a post for it. I love Oliver, Diggle, Felicity and Laurel. :) we've now finished Season 1 and I think it was great. I wouldn't recommend it to younger people though.

And Hogan's Heroes, I mean seriously whenever Carter dresses up as Hitler it's a barrel full of laughs. :)
Well, me and Mum weren't like this. But I can be at this stage pretty often. 
Laughing at....things Saxon says, Horrible Histories and things from Family Ties and oldish T.V. show from the 70's. Not quite little kid appropriate but Mum and I were laughing through it and I really enjoyed it. I don't think I've laughed so hard in anything for ages.

Taking quizzes....Sometimes I go through this whole stage of taking quizzes and beieve me, they are very addicting. Some of the results I wasn't that happy with

Like Mrs. Hudson
But if you read the why, then yes, it's very much like me. :)
Others I was really happy with. :) Like these two:
Princess Bride

So yes, very happy with these two. They actually have a few really good quizzes. Here is the link:

Like this one. A bit of a challenge, no actually quite a challenge ;) try some new hairstyles. I've actually got quite a few open currently and I'd like to try some LOTR ones as well. To make some new skirts, to enjoy Autumn!

Working on...Reading books (duh) Lenten things, being outside when it is windy.

Asking for... Prayers for Rogan and Eden. The past week was actually really tense and they both really need some prayers, if you would be so kind. :)

Anyway I'd better go. I hope to be able to post more frequently but it's just getting around to it, and also feeling the mood.
Adios amigos!

God Bless
