The Answers Are In!








I'm so excited to be revealing the answers to my Movie Night quotes quiz! (By the way, I'm so sorry this is being posted now instead of yesterday -- my family had guests for dinner last night, and we ended up staying up really late.) Before we begin, here's how this is going to work: underneath each quote and it's answer (who said it, and what movie it is from), there will be the names of those who guessed correctly. Bolded names mean that they guessed the movie AND who said the quote correctly. Also, because I am now revealing the answers, the names have been re-inserted into the quotes, rather then just saying --> [name omitted]. Alright, shall we begin?

    "You know who I am, Gabriel Martin. The last time I saw you I was eleven, and you put ink in my tea."

Lovely Photo - Wordless or Not-So-Wordless Wednesday at Aspire
As you can see, this post has no title. This is for you, Hannah!









That comment *above* is because it's Hannah's Lovely Photo Wednesday! As a spin-off of Wordless Wednesdays, we are instructed by sweet Hannah to post a photo of ours that we love, or one that is just plain hilarious.  Here is my photo (which fall under the category of just plain hilarious):



Yes, those are marshmallows. Yes, they have faces (courtesy of Magic Markers). And yes, they are in the oven, just waiting for someone to find them. While on vacation, my sisters and I grew a little restless. So, taking the bag of marshmallows (bought for the purpose of making s'mores), we gave each marshmallow a personality of it's own. 

What do you think? Should we avoid all boredom in the future, in order not to waste our time as we did here? Or are we creative geniuses? You decide. :)

Em's End of Summer Blog Hop!

 This is a blog hop like none before. Rather then answering a list of questions, related or unrelated to a certain topic, Emily Shae @ Grace Like Rain has chosen to format her blog hop, celebrating the end of summer, a bit differently. Here is how she put it...


Since we are moving into the colder parts of the year, we need a time to reflect on the summer of 2010. It was a summer of discoveries, both physically and spiritually. But, before I go any further, and exert anymore of my random tangents of excitement, I believe there are a few things that must be mentioned first.
First thing...since this is a blog hop, there needs to be something fun (other than the cool prizes!). For this week there will be a collection of questions. You will post the questions in an essay format (one or all of them) of no less than 200 words to your blog. Then link up here at Grace Like Rain (Mclinky will be right below header). Here you go... the questions await your answers: 

1. Post a descriptive about your idea of the 'perfect summer'. 
2. Write a memoir of your summer.
3. Tell us what God has taught you over the summer.
4. Share with us your summer pictures; all those fun memories of Summer 2010!
5. Or do all 4!
I have chosen to do a bit of a combination of #2 and #3. Here is my essay...

The summer of 2010 was such a summer of new beginnings and new awakenings for me in so many different ways. I began reading my Bible much more--I started the "read the Bible in a year" program--and it has changed me so much. The Bible no longer seems like a dusty old book of histories and things that happened in the past. It is real, it is TRUE. Up until now, I failed to see that.

This may not be as important or life-changing as what I wrote above, but it is still a new step for me. I became a camera addict this summer. Really, I can't let go of the camera. Everywhere I go, I see a shot that I could have captured. I see the beauty in the simplest of things... and I want to share that. I want to embrace it, to be a part of it. I want the beauty of the Lord's creation to shine through my photos.

The Lord directed my steps in many ways this summer. I began writing a book, temporarily titled Peril on the Sea. A sad book. And yes, I will admit that I cry sometimes while writing it. The characters that I invent become so real, so fluid to me that it breaks my heart to think of hurting them.

A girl who rarely touched a Bible--except in church on Sundays--now turns the pages with eager fingertips. A girl who never saw much value in a camera now cannot put it down. A girl who had failed and grown frustrated over her seeming lack of enough imagination and talent to write a book suddenly was placed in the whirling and exhilarating storm of book-writing. 

A sinner who was asleep was awoken to the Light.

There are also some lovely prizes to be won in this event of Emily's (yes, I said prizes--they make everything all the more exciting, right? :)...

  

(isn't this necklace beautiful?)




And for all of you photographers...








And to those who are avid book-readers...




The prizes are splendid, are they not? Do you want the chance to win one of them? Then join Emily's giveaway and blog hop!

These Lovely Ladies Are Having Some Giveaways... Please Join!

This post will be entirely made of compiled giveaways that are happening in the blog world. Yes--it will be long. :)



Have you all ever met my sister, Bree, before?

She is the heart, soul, mind, and spirit behind the blog He Designs My Life.

Currently, she is having a giveaway... and I wouldn't be a good older sister if I didn't tell you all about it, now would I?

First place is a makeover by Awel--how exciting is that? And the 2nd and 3rd place prizes are fabulous as well. So head on over and join Bree's giveaway! And while you're at it, why don't you follow her as well? 



On the note of giveaways, Guinevere is also having one. Click here to check it out! She has some pretty awesome prizes as well!

Here are the questions for her blog party: 


1. What has been your favorite part of summer so far? Writing my book, Peril on the Sea, and lots and lots of thunderstorms!

2. What is your favorite part of autumn? The crisp, cool air, and getting back to school. 

3. Raindrops on roses or whiskers on kittens? Raindrops on roses--what else? Of course, an un-whiskered kitten WOULD be a bit odd...

4. Describe your dream house. I have many ideas of what I would like in a house--how can I choose? One thing that I would like no matter what would be a large backyard with a tree house and swings. Not a swing set--just plain old-fashioned swings.

5. What's your favorite movie? Oh, so hard! Can I choose three? I love The Patriot, Sense & Sensibility (1995), and Henry V (the one with Kenneth Branagh). 

6. Quote something from the book you most recently read: 

"Look here," said Edmund, "need we go by the same way that our Dear Little Friend came by?"
"No more of that, your Majesty, if you love me," said the Dwarf.
"Very well," said Edmund. "May I say our D.L.F.?"
"Oh, Edmund," said Susan. "Don't keep on at him like that."
"That's all right, lass--I mean your Majesty," said Trumpkin with a chuckle. "A jibe won't raise a blister."
(And after that they often called him the D.L.F. until they had almost forgot what it meant.) 
-- Prince Caspian (book)


7. What do you like/not like about my blog? I really like how you are frequently lighthearted and cheerful. What do I not like? Hmm... that's hard... can I have a moment?

8. Rain or shine? RAIN, all. the. way. 

9. The worst grammatical mistake, in your opinion: Misspelling words, or doing Random capitals all Over the Place <-- see what I mean?

10. If you had a choice, would you want to live: in the mountains, in a rainforest, on a prairie, or by the beach? Um... by the beach. :)

11. What character from a book would you say you are most like? Either Jo March or Marianne Dashwood.

12. Be constantly talking the rest of your life or not be able to communicate in any way for the rest of your life? Constantly talking.

13. Owl City or Switchfoot? Sorry, neither.

14. Taylor Swift of Selena Gomez? Taylor Swift. 

15. Your pet peeve? Grammatical errors. 

16. What's your favorite font? 

17. How are you educated? (i.e. homeschooled, public schooled, private schooled) Homeschooled.

18. Do you consider yourself tomboy-ish or feminine? Feminine.

19. What's your favorite song? I really like a lot of music, so I don't think I can choose one. 

20. Did you enjoy answering these questions? YES!


And last, but most certainly not least, is Bleah's and Eldarwen's homeschoolers event.
 

This is for HOMESCHOOLERS, so if you homeschool, listen up! There is a mysterious prize--one that has not yet been revealed--that Bleah and Eldarwen are giving away. And ANYONE can enter--even if you live in Japan! Here's all you have to do:

Friday Night is Movie Night!

NOTE: THIS QUOTES QUIZ IS NOW ENDED.


Thanks to Eldarwen, who made up this brilliant idea and gave me permission to copy it, from now on, the second Friday of every month is Movie Night. Here's how this is going to work:

1. There is going to be a movie quotes quiz, which you will have until the next Friday to guess. 


- You earn one point if you guess the movie, and two bonus points if you guess what characters say it.
- Each movie quiz will have a theme.
- Cheating (looking up quotes on the Internet) is by all means prohibited.
- You MAY watch a movie if you think one of the quotes is in it.
- You MAY ask a parent if a certain quote is in a movie.
- If you have joined, please put up the promo button on your blog, linking back to this post.

2. There will also be one movie, chosen by me, as the "Movie Of The Night," and I will put up the trailer. (HINT: this movie will be one or more of the answers from the quotes quiz!) If you have seen the movie before, leave me a comment letting me know what you think!

That's all! Tonight's theme for the quotes quiz is "Elizabeth Rose's Favorite Movies" (sorry, that doesn't give you many hints!). So fetch yourself a bowl of popcorn, and sit down for a fun movie-themed post!

And tonight's "Movie of The Night" is...


THE PATRIOT!

Now, I will warn you, being about the American Revolution, this movie does have a good bit of warfare. To quote Father Christmas from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, "Battles are ugly affairs." There is one scene that we always skip, it being too bloody. However, it is a fantastic movie all the same, full of truth, moral, and the struggles of our country's men to get out from under the thumb of the British. It is truly a very powerful film, and a must-see. Here is the trailer:


And that concludes this movie night. Remember to guess the quotes! You have until next Friday. :)
