September 2009 - Simply Samantha


7:36 PM

We have had an injury in our family. And its not me, even though I do most of the injuring in the family.
This has to do with our baby, well our youngest dogie.
Yesterday morning he came limping ( more like hoping) to the back door. He wasn't putting any weight on his back right paw.

Here is what we think happened.
Our neighbors cat was on the other side of our dogs electric fence line. That had our dogs barking like crazy. Well our youngest puppy Jaxson, likes to do, what we call, burnouts in the grass. In other words he kicks the grass with his back feet ( if that makes sense ;) ). We think he pulled or sprained his leg while doing his "burnouts".

He's doing ok, still limping around. At least if we ever had to have his leg amputates we know he would have no problem running around with out one leg :) just kidding :)
We think that he could put his foot down if he wanted to. But I think that he's just working the leg injury ;)

Does it really need a title

12:47 PM


Seriously, this post doesn't really need a title.
I'm actually sitting on my butt and I'm going to write. I so need too. I feel so bad when I don't then I find myself facebooking and tweeting more then i should be blogging.
Truthfully, my life isn't that exciting, at the moment.
October is creeping up on me. Its the month of my PSAT and sister birthday.
I really need to get her a gift. I reminded myself that when I was getting ready to by a shirt at Kohls ;) ( see above photo). I reminded my self that again when I was looking up webcames and dresses for homecoming ( even though that's almost a month away).
I'm actually excited that her birthday is coming up because one of our friends is flying down for her birthday :) She really excited. Plus were going to DISNEY WORLD :)
Though I try to forget that on that day I'll be taking the PSAT's . Oh joy. But I really need to take them. I'm not worried about it really, its just the math part that I'm going to STINK at. Because we worked it out that I doing Algebra 1 this year, as a junior. SO some of the math stuff i haven't done yet. I keep telling my self that I want to major in HISTORY not MATH... lol
So that's my exciting life ;)

oh, and this wreck at yesterdays Dover race totally freaked me out, scared me half to death and left me with a sickening ( is that even a word) feeling in my stomach. I know sounds weird. I told my NASCAR buddie ( my friend :) ) jokingly that it must have been sympathy pains since the driver of the car that flips only 2 years older then me ;) Thank GOD he was ok :)

A lack of bloggin

1:02 PM

I apologize for the bloggin, or the lack there of ;) Its partially because, I haven't found the time, and well, i just didn't feel like blogging ( and I had nothing to blog about).
So please bear with me as this is a totally random post and I have not control of how many times i jump from different subjects. LOL.

Over all it all gets a thumbs up ( and so do my parents for helping me :) )

Step 1

6:04 PM

So , I always feel bad when I don't post after 2 days or so :) so here is pictures and what we did in Step 1 of my room make over : )

I have a walk-in closet, so that was the first thing to do.. just to get it out of the way.

At 9 o'clock Friday night dad decided to take everything out of my closet and take down the selves.
My room look like it had exploded!

My closet seemed SO much bigger with out all my junk.....oh i mean stuff :)


White over blue, you bet we had to do a 2nd coat ...


Oh course I didn't get an after shot, and i can't now because most of my room stuff is in there while we paint or finish painting my room.

Hopefully in tonight and tomorrow my room will be put back together, so stay tuned :)

Short and i guess it could be sweet....

7:35 PM

Sorry for the lack of post. I really was hopping to blog this weekend but never got the chance.
We're working on my room, as I speak my bedroom smells like paint and mom just suggested that i sleep upstairs tonight.
At first I thought we would get just my walk-in closet done this weekend but instead, We decided just to do that whole room.

So hopefully in the next couple days I'll post pictures and the finished project.
Its looking good so far ;) can't wait to show you :)

Friday Favorites

"More music Samantha! you got to be kidding me! lol" is probably what your thinking. lol

Most of you know I am a big fan of BarlowGirl, I own every one of there 5 albums which includes there Christmas cd.
Just so you know why I love theses girls, here is a little bio on them

The band is composed of sisters Alyssa Barlow (lead vocals, bass, keyboard), Becca Barlow (backing vocals, guitar), and Lauren Barlow (lead vocals, drums).

The band has gained a following with their message from Romans 12:2 "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will."

The band advocates waiting on God's timing concerning romantic relationships. They were quoted as saying,

"We believe that God has one perfect man already chosen for us; therefore we have no need to worry ourselves in searching for him. When the time is right, we know God will bring us together. In the mean time, we are not hiding in a closet avoiding all males, we are still living our lives, just without the pressure of having to have a boyfriend."

I've listened to theses girls music since there first album back in 2004 and have seen them 2 times in concert... ( dedicated much??
Their just such an inspiration and their songs always seem help me when I'm down or just need some encouragement. And knowing that there all in there 20's and have never dated, well, that's just even more amazing knowing that they trust Christ that much.

Anyway, Thursday mom came in with a package, after a couple minuets teasing me with it ( by holding it in the air) I opened to find there newest cd "Love and War. ( oh and its signed 2 :) )

This by far, is there best CD yet, oh of course there other albums are amazing, but this just is beyond amazing, the lyrics are deeper, the sounds are sweeter. PLEASE if you get a chance stop bye there website and take a listen to their songs.

A Not So Wordless Wednesday

Anyway, I've always wanted to share with you whats playing on my itunes playlist. I'm constantly changing but this is whats playing now.

Beautiful Ending by BarlowGirl*- I ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY LOVE THIS SONG. Its part of there new album ( which I'm patiently waiting for since i pre-ordered it by mail ;) ). This has to be one of their best songs ever. I never get tired of hearing it.

Why Don't We Just Dance by Josh Turner - This is such a cute song :) I LOVE Josh Turner, besides BarlowGirl he mostly dominates my Ipod. His voice just makes me, well , go crazy :)

Say Hey I Love You by Michael Franti* - My mom and I heard this on the radio and fell in love with it :) if you come to our house, one of us is blasting it from our laptops :)

Chasing The Daylight by Philip LaRue - Want a really cool, totally different kind christian singer? Try Philip, He's amazing, and the lyrics in his songs are amazing ;)

Sound of Your Name by Above the Golden State - I saw the lead singer in this band at a concert. I LOVED their music even before i heared him in concert. This is one of my 2 favorite songs by them :)

Mess by B.Reith - I saw B.Reith on t.v a couple months ago and fell in love with his music ;) his first cd comes out later this month and PLEASE check him out. He's amazing, kind of a Toby Mac kind of guy ( come to think of it, Toby Mac discovered This is one of my favorite songs by him :)..also another great song by him is called Awestruck... check it out

Have Your Way by Britt Nicole - I found this song a week or so and it was saying exactly what i was going through. Was that God or what! ;) this is amazingly powerful and moving song.

Streetlight by Danyew - I saw him at the same concert I saw the lead singer of Above the Golden State. My friend and I LOVED this song. I still do :) You can also here his song Beautiful King on my player here on my blog :)

Fly With Me by The Jonas Brothers - OK, I am not a HUGE Jo bros fan, I typically dont like there music all that much, but this so is just SO CUTE :) lol....

Country Man by Luke Bryan - Ok, I'm not a guy, but I just love this song, so funny and catchy ;)
( what can i say, I'm a sucker for a country man :) )

That Song in My Head by Julianne Hough - Love this song, so cute and like Country man, so catchy :)

Fearless by Taylor Swift - I wasn't a big fan of Taylor when she first came out but I like her new cd. Now i don't think she is a AMAZING singer, but the girl can WRITE ;) Her songs also reminds me of times when my friends and I where belting her songs out in the car.

Oh and last but not least...

Hound Dog by Elvis Presley - I've always loved this song :) It never get old, one of my favorite songs to dance 2 :)

As you can see I have multiple taste in music from Country to Contemporary to a little bit of hip hop ;)

Room Update

12:33 PM

So over the weekend we got 1 ( well i guess it could be 2 ) things accomplished in my room.
1. We ( my dad ; ) ) removed my dresser from my closet so that we can start to take all my box's and stuff out of it so we can paint it this weekend.

( please excuse the messiness)

2. We took apart my old bed ( it was about to fall apart anyway).. ..
You know your homeschooled when you calculator is always about 2 inches from your bed and you backpack is your locker :P

So now I'm sleeping lower the usual, which i don't mind because now i can see this cutie better :)
( he is hardly ever in my room... and he looks this cute because i was eating :P... he knows how to "work it" )
