You can see why :)
(if you can't figure it out why.. the symbol on my shirt is the symbol of the hunger games books)

Isn't is great! I was so thrilled when i saw it at the mall yesterday! My friend laughed as i had a fan girl moment in the middle of one of the stores.

BY THE WAY. Thanks to Mrs.Lauren over at Busy Bee Lauren. I found about some hopeful's for the 2 males leads in the Hunger Games. Be sure to go over and check them out if your into the hunger games!

Disney

Spring Break

12:00 AM

I had an amazing spring break. I spent the first week of my brake at home.. just relaxin.. doing a "little" bit of school.. ah the joys of being homeschooled ;p

The the last half of the week I got to spend in the Happiest Place on Earth! Thanks to momma who got to attend the Social Media Moms Disney Event :) I actually spent most of my time at the hotel just relaxing! Because some of you may not know is that we have season passes to Disney and got quiet often, so i just wanted to relax at the hotel :) The Grand Floridian resort is PERFECT for that :)

Photobucket

Isn't the view from our room BEAUTIFUL! It was very neat just to go out and sit and watch the Monorail go back and forth,

Photobucket

and also at night we could walk out of our room and watch this :)

Photobucket
Fireworks!

But my favorite place was the beach :D
Photobucket

Having a little to much fun in the room by myself :)

A day in the life

12:00 AM

So, about a week ago I keep my camera by my side so I could show you what a day in the life of Simply Samantha is like :)


Enjoy :)


Wake up. Get ready for the day. And dig this iky think called math from my desk drawers.

Photobucket

Remove one certain person from the middle of my bed

Photobucket

Finish Math at desk then plop down on the bed for some online English and Spanish 2 classes.

Photobucket

Once done, catch up on whats happening in the blog world by reading some blogs.

Photobucket

Make and eat some yummy GF spaghetti pasta with pesto.

Photobucket

Dance around to a new (and favorite) 80's cover while getting ready for work.

Photobucket

Go to work which means sitting behind this for a hour or so.

Photobucket

Make a quick stop with "small one" near the local gas station after school.
I was in a desperate need of this.


Photobucket

Play with "small one" and "little kitten"

Photobucket

While small one read's for school I catch up on some reading and some tweets.

Photobucket

Come home. Blog some. Tweet some. While watching "That 70's show" some.

Photobucket

Clean up. Throw hair up into messy bun because I'm to tired to blowdry.

Photobucket

Crash on bed. Curl up and read (and later finish) my book.

Photobucket
(editors note : I have finished ALL 3 of the hunger games books. These photos we taken shortly after i started reading the second book.. which i later finished :) )

Yup thats it. Exciting isn't it ;p

After I finished all 3 books i texted my friend and said "Now I know how twilighters feel" ;p

I heard that they are working on the movie right now and I've read Alex Pettyfer is up for the male lead. Um heck ya! :) sorry... had a girl moment...
