A Slice of Cupcake (I'm not even sure that's possible).

So you remember that update blog post I was going to do? Well here it is. Random bits of random stuff.

On Wednesday after Mum and I dropped Eden off for her exams we went and did some shopping. But not just any shopping. One of our very good friends' birthday parties is next month. It's a Disney dress-up party and you have to dress up as someone from a Disney movie.

I thought for ages that I'd loved to come as Maid Marian from the Disney version of Robin Hood. All time favourite movie when I was little as well. But the thing is, to get an outfit like hers would mean lots of lollie and probably too much stress to like the idea.
And then about the start of this month it hit me. Marvel is owned by Disney. *hint hint nudge nudge* and so I decided I would come as one of the main girls from one of them. Now, guess who I have decided on.

Nuh. Not Pepper Potts.
Nuh. Not Jane Foster.
Nuh. Not Natasha Romanoff.

Drum roll please....Peggy Carter!

And her outfit was surprisingly easy to get! I have a skirt that needs to be modified a bit, a leather jacket, shoes, and I need a belt for around my waist and a gun. This young lady has done a nice video on how to do her make-up and hair and that is what I'll use for my base.

Saxon and Eden have also been invited. Eden is coming as Esmeralda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame (one of the scariest Disney movies I ever did see!) and Saxon is going to come as Walt Disney. :D
I'm really excited!

After we finished clothes shopping me and Mum went to a cafe/coffee shop and had scones and a muffin and hot drinks. I had a Chai latte and it tasted delicious!
Just look at it. Doesn't it look delicous.
I also was able just to talk to Mum about something I had had on my mind and it was just nice for the two of us to have to one-on-one time.

Mum and I have been doing Trim Healthy Mama. It's basically a healthier way of eating that actually works and helps with weight loss! Both Mummy and I have already lost weight and it's so easy and I really love it! To find out more about it: That being said, when we went to the cafe we went off plan :O

I've been reading a few different books. I finished the Hound of the Baskervilles the other day. It was very enjoyable but I found that at some points I was rather freaked out! I read the last sixty pages (or something like that) in under 24 hours. I was rather proud of myself. :)

I finished listening to The Hunger Games after unsuccessfully trying to find the book. I'm now starting to read Catching Fire. I think I like Peeta better than Gale but then he has had more 'screen time'.

The younger kids are watching Prince Caspian while I write this. Do you realise that it is six years old now?

Watching things like Narnia or Star Wars bring back so many memories for me. And realising how much I love them, too. I think once we've finished watching Star Wars together (we've got the Original trilogy left) we should do Narnia. And can I say just how much I love Edmund in Prince Caspian? And Lucy, of course. And Trumpkin.
(The Chronicles of Narnia)

Is anyone else on Goodreads? I've been using it recently. Here is the link to my page:

Hopefully I'll be able to post my MQQ in a few days. Ciao!

God Bless

The Sunshine Award. (That is such an interesting title...not).

So a while back and I seriously mean a 'while' back. Lizzie over at Castle in the Air nominated me for The Sunshine Award. Honestly I don't get awards very often but I was very pleased with this unexpected surprise. :) Also I know I haven't been blogging very much. I've just been so very, very busy.
* Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog.
* Answer the questions they asked you.
* Nominate other bloggers.
* Give them a list of questions.
* Let them know that they have been nominated.
* The Sunshine Award button must be on your blog post.
I nominate:
Lizzie's Questions:
If you could pick a country to visit for a full month, where would it be?
Hmm, a full month? Well, it would have to be a place where I wouldn't get I'll say Great Britain. *smirks* That means I cover England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Also, it is understood that my entire family comes along too. And the someone else pays for the entire trip. :P

What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Probably chocolate. I like to try new flavours but chocolate is standard and if you choose chocolate you can't go wrong. :D
What is you favorite day of the week?
Sunday! Especially the afternoon! After that comes Friday. :)
If you had to pick only one song to listen to for a week what would it be?
What is your favorite little kid show?
Duck tales, probably. The theme song is the best thing about it. :D

How many times a day do you brush your teeth?
Two times every day. Or at least I try to, sometimes it's only one or none. :O
Who is your favorite blogger?
That's a difficult question. Probably my two favourite bloggers who I read frequently are Arda and Jamie over at In Western Lands and Through Two Blue Eyes. I don't like these questions very much though because they seem to be a bit too personal. Take note that these aren't the only blogs that I read and comment on. :)
Morning, afternoon, or night?
As in my favourite time of day? I like the transaction from afternoon to evening, twilight. Yes, that is my favourtie time of day.
What is one thing you would want to collect?
Books!! I already have a bit of a collection but in my own words 'There is no such thing as too many books!' Concur?

Fave fruit?
Ohh, Definitely grapes! After that probably bananas or apples. But grapes I could eat each and every day.

Nominate bloggers. Here are my picks:
Jamie at Through Two Blue Eyes
Arda at In Western Lands
Princess at The Aussie Princess
Kim at The Princess Inside
Benjamin at Flashes of Inspiration 

My Questions:
1. What is your favourite thing about blogging?

2. What type of music do you enjoy listening to? i.e. pop, rock, electronic ect.

3. Best line from The Princess Bride? (I'm assuming you've all seen it)

4. Are you more of a reader or a watcher. Books vs. Movies?

5. If you could meet up with one of your favourtie characters from a book you've read who would it be?

6. Marvelite or Ringer?

7. On average how much quoting do you use on a day to day basis? i.e. quotes from movies that just fit the situation.

And that's all. I've got an X-Men: Days of Future Past review in my drafts. An update on life and a post on the music and things that I like to listen to.
Goodnight and Auf Wiedersehen!

God Bless
