p.s. Nanny Mcfee did turn out just dandy in the end:)

grad night trip 08

Patrisha and me on our way to cali for Grad Night.

I was looking through some pictures from my grad night in disneyland, and it just hit me like a sack of potatoes right in the gut that I have been graduated for TWO years. That is sooo crazy to me. I can't believe how fast time goes by. Though i wish i would have maybe done more in the past two years, i cant say that i truly regret anything. I'm actually pretty content with where i am in my life right now. Though i'll definitely be making a list of things to do before the THREE years from graduating mark!! :) -eliseila

scary mcfee

K,have you ever seen the movie Nanny McFee? She is soo scary!! I would never ever hire her as a nanny for my children! She should work in a prison! Or, if someone commits a crime, instead of jail time, they could have McFee time, and have to live with her for a couple weeks. That would be WAY worse of a punishment than jail time!! Though I suppose maybe this movie will get less creepy as it goes. I certainly hope so! But I am quite in love with the little kids! They are so so cute!! I do hope all my kids are like them:) Especially when they make up names for themselves, bum, fartigan, and bosoms! haha so cute:)

magic tree house

do you ever just wanna run away to a magic tree house? I do. Quite frequently actually. Not really because i'm stressed out or anything, but just because I like to go to beautiful places and be completely all alone sometimes. Where i can read, or write or just relax, and let my mind wander. It's amazing, and everyone should make time to get away at least once a week, if not more:) So, go find your own little hide-away. Take some hot cocoa, or a cool drink, a good book, and a blankie, and just relax. You'll be glad you did. :) *Eliseila

well, here goes...

So for the looongest time I've been trying and thinking and brainstorming about ideas to name my blog so it would just scream THIS IS COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY, 100% ELISE. But it's been sooo hard! I thought about using just my name, but that's so boring! So then had different names that all included the word Bird. Birds have always been and always will be my favorite animals and pets. They are beautiful, and are used for so many metaphors, ideas, and inspirations. See but I still want my blog to be different, and I feel like anything with birds is kind of trendy right now, so I didn't want to be just another girl trying to follow a trend and fit in. I'm done with that. Then I kept arguing with myself about every title/name i came up with. (I'm very good at arguing with myself.) So I finally came to "walking contradiction". Because I feel I'm just that. I love so many different things and cant be tied down to one specific genre, type, influence, category, description, classification, etc.. I'm kind of all over the place. I hate conforming, but I am easy going, and go with the flow. I hate being told what to do, but I'm respectful and obedient when I see fit. I love vintage but there's nothing like a brand new, never-worn, still smells like the store outfit. I love lazy days when i have absolutely nothing to do but lie around in my jammies, but also love going running and feeling empowered and strong, with sweat dripping down my forehead. Anyway, this title also reminds me of Ever After which has been one of my favorite movies since I was 8 years old. Henry says Danielle is a walking contradiction because she "spouts the ideals of a utopian society, yet she lives the life of a courtier." Though that does sound sort of negative, I think it's really beautiful, and i think it's good to be a walking contradiction. It's like parading differences, and celebrating uniqueness. Which is just the ticket!! :)
