Harry Potter Love

Okay with all the craziness going around about Twilight
coming out and blah blah blah.
I just watched the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows trailer and it was AMAZING!
Is it wrong that I got goosebumps from watching it?
Yeah I hope not, because I did.
So while other people are out purchasing Eclipse tickets
I am counting the days until Harry Potter comes out.
*shivers* It's going to be amazing.
PS: Like the picture? Ain't it hee-larious? hahaha

I know that I do a lot of posts about my pets... and it's not my fault!
They're so freakin' photogenic and adorable.
I can't help it.
Take Ranger here for example:

What in the world is the weirdo doing up there?
Hahahaha... oh he cracks me up.
And then my kitty Leonardo is always adorable. As you know.
Do you see what I mean?
I'm obsessed with taking photos of them.
What is your obsession?
OH and by the way you guys should enter
this giveaway and this Crafty Goodness Swap.

Totoro Cupcakes Anyone?

Today was my day off from work and I decided to do something
that I've wanted to do for a very long time.

MAKE CUPCAKES!! Woot woot.

I was having a bit of trouble though because we are renovating our kitchen
and everything was all over the place.
I had to run around finding ingredients! I ended up setting the mixer on the floor
and had to keep Ranger's (^^see above) big nose out of it.

Then when Callie got home we frosted and decorated them.

We even did one mini-heart shaped cake
Congrats Callie I love you lots. :)

Aren't they freakin' adorable!?
I love My Neighbor Totoro...

PS: Remember that post I did a while back about Operation Beautiful?
Well I was actually featured on the site. If you want to see click here dearies. :}

Hope you all are having a great day!
OH! And you might want to stop by the Magical
Bean's blog tomorrow for a giveaway...hint hint hint.

Papers & Papers into the Recycling Bin They Go

I went through my backpack and binders today to get rid
of old no longer useful papers
and lookie here...
Isn't that a huge stack?

I always find the things I keep every year quite interesting.
For example I kept this paper from chemistry:

It was an introduction to stoichiometry and I had to draw a real life
example of Single Replacement. Cue PB & J substituting with honey.

AAH! These are the stacks of outlines I had to do all year for World History this year. Shiver.
In other news: I also have been practicing my henna on family members.
This is Callie's fully covered hand. :D

Lately I've been listening to these awesome tunes... Journey + Glee = pure genius.

1, 2, 3... Come Along With Me

In Jessica Leigh La Lou's world...
The Magical Bean helps her make butterscotch cookies when there's nothing else to do.

Then they take multiple pictures of their kitties doing funny things

like Sheila here cleaning her pink belly.

And when there is free time she goes to see Shrek Forever After
with her siblings, being the movie buff that she is.

Isn't describing my daily actions in third person fun?


I hope you are having a superb day.

All in a Day's Work

It's been quite a week... I've been pretty busy almost everyday at work
trying to master face painting. I have so much more respect for people
who paint faces or anything else really. My swirls still suck but I will eventually figure them out! haha.

{I'm thinking I should buy TOMS when my first paycheck comes in what do you think?}

OH YEAH! One realllllllly cool thing that happened to me at work was
a man that could only speak French wanted a face painting
for his daughter! And guess who speaks French!?

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
Yeah, you guessed it: me.

I had actually just finished explaining to some girls
that kept telling me that I should have taken Spanish
because we live near Mexico and San Antonio is highly populated with Spanish speaking people;
I just told them that French always felt right to me.
And then voila! He appears with his daughter and totally proved my point.
It was such a good feeling,
I haven't been able to speak French with someone like that in like 3 years. :)

And guess what!? I got a Blog Award from Trishie!
Thank you so much for this wonderful award!
Giving it to me was so very sweet of you... :')
I'll be passing this along to:

As of right now I'm going to go finish Ever After and then

listen to some Glee tunes...

PS: Do you like the way my blog looks now?
The background color reminded me of mint chocolate chip ice cream.

Tuesday Me-Likeys

For a loooong time I've wanted to do something consistent;
something special that I would do once a week.
And after looking through some old blog posts, I found something I did called
"TUESDAY ME-LIKEYS"--cue post--
And that's what I'm going to start doing!
I'll have a theme for each Tuesday
and I'm just going to run with it. If you want to do it on your blog too (which would be amaz-zuh-zing), then leave a comment on mine with like a link--so I can see your awesome post-- and leave a link back to me on your post.








Comments? Questions? Sentiments?
Remember Leigh La Lou loves feedback...hehe.

Next on the Agenda...

Well it's Summer time!!
I have been out of school for officially...
--hang on let me count--
3 DAYS!! *applause applause*
Last week I went to a family reunion at the Guadalupe River...
We went swimming, spent the night, and fished.
It was really fun except for the dreaded outhouse *shivers*
On the last day of school my family and I went to the Rise Bakery
and had a delicious cream cheese cookie and hot chocolate to celebrate my final day of my sophomore year.

Then for two days all the women in my family (all four of us)
went to Port Aransas for two days...
It was a lot of fun. I always love going to the beach!

Today things get a little more serious though. It's the very first day of my job at Fiesta Texas and let me tell you I look attractive. I have pleated khaki pants on that I could fit another person in, if it wasn't for the belt. And then to TOP it all OFF, I have a neon yellow/green t-shirt that can is so bright that you can not only view me from down a street but in outer space.

Wish me luck.

Cross your fingers.

No seriously I'm nervous I need all the help I can get.

Jessica Leigh
