Peace out, I'm Batman!





1.) My bestest cousin surprised me with a visit over the weekend. (Everyone else knew she was coming up. I did not. They keep doing that to me. lol) It was really lovely! We had lots of coffee and cookies and brownies.... (Wow. I do  talk about food a lot. It's almost like we must have food to truly have a good time!) We watched Psych and played hide-n-seek. In the dark. We went and hung out at the beach. It was funnnnnz.

Yes, we are geeky.

2.) In less than a week, something awesome is going to happen at my home! I can't tell you what it is yet... (it's a surprise for a couple of people who might take it into their heads to read my blog) BUT IT'S GOING TO BE AWESOME AND I'LL TELL YOU SOON!!!

3.) I'm watching the second season of Once Upon a Time. It's good so far. I'm glad James is James again and not David.

4.) I don't like Mulan though. She's.... just terrible. And what's with the hair?

5.) I want to be completely honest with you guys. Supernatural is definitely a grown-up show. I know I have some younger people following me, and I don't want you guys to be misled into thinking that it's squeaky clean, because it's not, always. There's usually an inappropriate line or conversation, and so far there's been one or two episodes a season that have a shameful scene in it. My sister and I have skipped a couple episodes because of said scenes. I don't want to recommend it to anyone without warning you first. It can get a little bit dirty.

And now, I shall away, with a flit and a flutter and a cheerful... something or other.

"Here is a baby with eyes of blue, straight from heaven, right to you."

So, I'm joining in and linking up to Amy's Disney blog party.... Because she made freaking Maid Marian inspired jewelry and I want them.


Right, so all you need to do to enter is do a post on a Disney cartoon. La! I'm doing it!


Dumbo is such a cute story! It's a little bit slower than most Disney movies, but it's just so adorable that I don't understand why it's so little known. It deserves more recognition than it gets. 

It's about a little baby elephant, named Jumbo Jr, who's mother is a performing elephant in a massive big circus. 

Unfortunately, Jumbo has rather massive ears that make him the object of ridicule, and the other, mean and gossipy elephants call him Dumbo

His nice little mommy protects him as much as she can. But at one point, this kid:

Takes the teasing a little too far, and makes Mommy elephant lose her temper. 

And she consequently gets put in here. 

And now, Dumbo is all alone in the circus, with no one to look after him.

The other elephants shun him, because he's an embarrassment to their wonderful  species. 

"Pretend you can't see him."

Then this little guy:

Takes Dumbo under his wing and tries to help him out. 

Unfortunately, there was this.... accident.
It was earthquake-esque

And Dumbo is made into a clown. 

So Timothy, the mouse, sneaks him over to see his mommy.

And it's sad. 

Like... sad.

And Dumbo and Timothy accidentally drink champagne. 

And wake up here. 

Where Timothy tells the crows about Dumbo's ill-fortune, and Dumbo get's a "magic feather" that makes him fly. 

Dumbo's luck improves.

And he gets some of his own back at the circus.

And everyone lives happily ever after.

The end. 

Yay! I did it! I'm going to go now. But if you have time, you must  watch this clip. It makes me cry every time..... Stupid  me. Did you know Baby Mine  was written for this movie? I didn't.

So... if YOU want that jewelry ^^^ up there. All you have to do is write a post about a Disney cartoon. Doesn't matter what kind of post it is, it doesn't need to be long. You just need to write it by Friday or Saturday and leave Amy a comment HERE with the link. 

You should totally do it!!
