the outtakes, take four

this is more of a "i'm so excited for california" post than an outtakes post, but i decided to write it up anyway. 
Morning. Today's the day. Finally, today's the day. Usually on mornings like this I wake up very early, and anticipate the days events with excitement. But today, I decided that I would sleep until 3:30pm, so that the flight would come sooner. I slept and awoke repeatedly in time frames of 25-40min, and finally got out of bed at 9:30am, seeing it wasn't going to work. I showered and dressed, emerging from my room smelling like strawberries, and heard the garage door opening, see my mom's car exit the driveway. Yes! I can get on the computer. Not that I wanted to get rid of my mom, no. Just....I value my computer time. Is that wrong?
I do my hair in fishtail braids. Again. I know I'm obsessed, but it's really efficient for travel! Teal slouchy hat on top. My mom says I look like my best friend {and future Best Actress winner}, Jessica. Picking out what book to read. Pity I don't actually own an Jane Austen novels. Thinking about buying Jane Eyre at the last minute. No, I'm sure a Nancy Drew novel will sustain me on the three hour flight to Los Angeles. Thinking about the burgers we're eating for dinner tonight. Yum-yum. 
Packing my last few bags. My makeup bag, if you want to get into specifics. Imagining that at this time tomorrow it will be 1:04pm {do the math} and I will be living it up at Disney Land, praying for God to give me courage so I can ride on the roller coasters. I need some hair style ideas. One that would stay in place. Suggestions? 
Hoping I'll get to use my aunt & uncle's DSLR to photograph and video the trip. I'm not the best with DSLR's, but I try, I really do. You should've seen me at my grandparent's anniversary!
T-minus 1hr, 16min. Have to double check my suitcases. Pick out a book. Shoes. Praying security will go well. I haven't been on a plane in years. I have an aisle seat. I wanted a window seat, but, oh well! I can always glance in the window's direction. 
Made grilled cheese and applesauce for lunch. Making a "currently into" {also known as: obsessed with} diary. First entry: macaroons, nikon film cameras, vintage coca~cola bottles, fishtail braids, cupcakes, Bible, dicionary, Ted Dekker, and Jane Austen, A Fine Frenzy's album: Bomb In A Birdcage. Thinking about making fashion sketches on the plane instead of reading. Must finish packing my makeup. 
Today is a beautiful day. 
{pee ess: If I'm not able to squeeze in some short posts about my vacation, then here's my official twitter. @whitelily16.}
{pee pee ess: When you click my twitter and see someone whose name is Sandra E. Taylor, that's me. Yes, Sandra E. Taylor and I are one and the same. And yes, Sandra has a blog: Barefoot Duchess. Yes, I fooled you all. And yes, there was an important reason.}
No more pee pee esses. I'm off to California. And boy am I excited :D
