A ukulele, and other news...

I am SO excited about my newest purchase! I got a ukulele on Tuesday and I already have calluses and can play "Over the Rainbow!" :) The uke is such a fun and easy instrument! I've had such fun picking out chords to songs!

I love this version from American Idol two years ago that Jason Castro did of "Over the Rainbow":

Another fun song is "Tonight you belong to me". If you've never heard it you can look it up on's so cute!

In other news...I went to go see "Sleeping Beauty" last night in Watauga and I thought it was great! :)

Okay, so last night I heard strange noises outside my window...I thought it was a dying animal! But this morning we found a cute little puppy outside! She was adorable and me and Michelle had already named her Angel Claire, but unfortunately we were unable to keep her... :*(

I have started writing a book! I finished a Civil War play several months ago that I had been working on for a couple of years, and I felt like I needed to be writing something else (no, school essays don't count). So I started putting onto paper an idea that has been in my head for a while! I'm really excited about it!

Fiddler on the Roof rehearsals are going well! :) We've been running through the music and we read through the script! We're going to start choreographing "Tradition" Thursday and I'm really excited about that!

One of my friends at my homeschool co-op put together a movie that I thought was really good. She went around the school one day asking everybody, "What does this generation need?" and then put together a short video. I'm in it too (excuse my crazy windblown hair!)... You can also head over to their website "Words in need of a voice" (isn't that the best name ever?!):

I've also been over at my friend's blog: and she's been posting different quizzes to take telling you which character you're like in different movies and such. I got "Prince Turveydrop" (don't ask, I don't know why!) when I took the Bleak House character quiz...and "Maid Marian" (this is a bit more fitting, I'd say) for the classic heroine quiz. So head over there and see who you are most like!

I also did a very mini photoshoot with my feet the other day that I had been meaning to do forever!

I'll probably be posting tomorrow about the Little Women of 2010 event tomorrow! So make sure you come back and meet another judge and read about any changes in the event! :)

And my most important news! Baby Piper, my new little niece, was born on Wednesday!!!

Have a great weekend!

Which ukulele did you get? Did you get it from Decatur music? I've been thinking of getting one of their $35 models when I can afford to get one...
