So, in honor of the Royal Wedding, Qui is doing a tag!! It's really fun and I couldn't help but join in, so, here I go!! 1. the groom Peter Pevensie. No question!! Okay, if I can't have Peter (except I will so I'm going to forget what I just said) he will be Godly, tall, respectful, *preferably* musical, and ka-YOOT!
(please note his SHORT hair)
2. the place
My mom says I have to get married in a church, so, I'm getting married in a church. Besides, I want to get married where I know God is smiling down at me. I'm sure he'd be smiling down at me wherever I'd be getting married, though.
If I had my choice I'd get married at Cair Paravel, or a small plantation or beach or something (sorry if I'm copying you, Qui) You know, where me and my husband would take a stroll in the sunset after everyone was gone, and we'd wade in the water and count how many footsteps we'd taken, and we'd make a sign that said "we were here." Yeah, that'd be awesome.
3. the song
I know I want to have a boys choir sing, I may write it myself or John Williams or Howard Shore or BOTH will do it. Not sure. But if not, then maybe "The Call" from the Prince Caspian or "So Close" from Enchanted or a "Falling Slowly" duet sung by the artists of my choice (extravagant, aren't I?). 4. the dress oy. The most fun BUT THE HARDEST PART of getting married (atleast, in a girl's perspective). It has to be perfect, it has to be white, it has to be lace! Good grief! I don't care! As long as it's made especially for me. I don't know about you but I am NOT walking down my aisle wearing a dress that someone copied off of Kate Middleton's dress. Don't get me wrong, I love it, but I want to wear something that's original, and for me. I actually drew it out, but I'm thinking of redoing it since I got some inspiration from the costuming of a beautiful ballet that I'm going to MISS. I'm so upset. Oh, well.
So, that's the tag!! Be sure to go to Qui's blog and check it out!! I tag anyone who wants to do this tag :))
(quote by the fantabulous Adam Young) Reality, meet Imaginations. Imaginations, well, Reality had to go, so let's keep imagining :)
Here I am watching the Royal Wedding, and my imagination is going sky high. Actually, I attempted to get up at 4am to watch the wedding, and I went downstairs, started to make some tea, then said "I'm DVRing it, I'm going back to bed." So, as my sister's stomping around the room depressed because she wasn't invited, I'm going to tell you some of the things I've been imagining. 1. to be a fairytale princess in a modern day world. That's exactly what Kate Middleton is. She's beautiful and sophisticated, and I think, even though I'm an American, she deserves the best day ever.
2. what my wedding would be like. Of course, it would be with Peter Pevensie/William Moseley (I don't care WHAT anyone else says!!) Peter would be the High King, and I'd be the High Queen, and we'd live happily ever after, kinda like them:
3. to have a wedding cake made of cupcakes. Um, what? I can't help it! Seriously, like I'm NOT going to have cupcakes at my wedding!
4. what I'd say to my special Prince handpicked from God himself. I mean, yeah, I know that traditional vows are...welll...traditional, but what I'm going to say to him will come directly from my heart. Not from Tradition.
5. what I'll wear. They always say the bride has to be a vision in white, but I'm going to be a vision in whatever I want to be. Okay, it's going to be white, but I might add something...
Okay, that's all for now. I'm sorry if you didn't want to read about me rambling on about something that's not going to happen for another 10-20 years. But, I have one last thing to show you: for me:
Westminster Abbey = Cair Paravel
Aslan will be doing the wedding
And Prince William + Kate Middleton = Peter Pevensie + me.
Whoever God picked for me, I'm going to have my fairytale wedding someday. But instead of being the Princess, I'll be the queen.
So, I didn't do "wondrous wednesday" yesterday. I suppose I have no excuse...sorry 'bout that. But today I'll be doing "thoughtful thursday" because I'm feeling really..um...thoughtful. Yeah. That's the word. Grab the button and link-up!
What's making MY Thursday Thoughtful?
Well, for one, all these thoughts. (sorry, I just had to say that)
I tried to make a blog background thingy using GIMP for my photography blog and it was an epic fail. I used a tutorial and I had no idea what I was doing. Darn.
I want a blog template for oh, goshbubbles photography like the one Carlotta has at her photography blog. But how, exactly, do you do that? Do you use the simple classic template? I'm afraid to make any changes because I'm scared I'll mess everything up.
I have this book idea and I'm wondering if I should start writing. I mean, why not? I've always wanted to get a book published.
I wish my dad bought cupcakes for yesterday. That way William Moseley and I wouldn't have to pretend.
I'm starving. I want a hot dog. For breakfast, you say? Well, my sister's in the house, so anything can happen.
I'm thinking about letting my sister do a guest post on this blog. What do you think? I'm thinking maybe. I'll put a poll up.
I don't think I put enough cupcake pictures on this blog. I'm a horrible cupcake eater.
Interesting thoughts, huh? I think so. Link-up time!
Someone contradicts something you believe and your blood begins to boil.
(oh, how I'd give to be Georgie right now)
I mean, yes, since Peter/William after all is a High King, we should let him choose for himself. Okay, that's so overrated. But no, it's true. You don't want to end up with the typical fangirl. But oh. my. gosh. He's so beautiful. *sigh*
(*gasp* serious face. ohhhhhh)
So, a fellow blogger friend of mine asked me what I did for William's birthday yesterday. What did I do? Alright. I'll tell you.
I pretended I had cupcakes, because daddy wouldn't go to the store and get some. (sorry, sweetie, I'll do it for your half-birthday, though!!)
Then, I sang him my version of "Falling Slowly" and imagined he was sitting next to me on the piano. I swear he had this insane blush on his face when I was finished. So cute.
I then watched like...ALL of the interview's he's done. And read some, too.
Then, I daydreamed about the whole...blogger prom/meet-up thing (I'm actually doing that right now)
Then, I took him to swim practice with me (no one knows that part)
And we went to church together, which ended really early so we went for a drive as the sun was going down. (I didn't drive. Yay)
And we lied down in this meadow and believe it or not, we made conversation like little kids who like each other, while subconsciously picking wildflowers.
Right when we were about to go, he kinda pulled me aside and kissed my hair and said "thanks for today." I died. Boy, did I die. Since then, I've been sitting at the window, replaying it all over, and over, and over.
Best. Day. Ever. Anyway, then today, I was on tumblr, and I saw this girl had posted something, and Bleah reblogged it. Here it is, off of my Tumblr:
the person who originally posted this said:
"Happy Birthday, my William."
I might just be a crazy fangirl, but it really scares me when other girls do that.
Anyway, here's what I said:
"I feel like the biggest jerkface in the world for not seeing this yesterday. And also: Happy Birthday, my darling, my stubborn, my headstrong, my opinionated, my undeniably cute High King. I love you."
*giggles girlishly* I can't believe I just did that. Did you see what I did there? Yeah. Crazy fangirl moment...*sheepish smile* Pray for me. ;)
Oh yeah! I also have this quote I made up. I guess you could call it a quote:
"I live in Texas but my heart and soul is in Narnia. Why? Because there are talking beasts and walking trees. Because there’s a majestic lion who swoops in and saves the day. Because I adore stubborn High Kings who have weaknesses we can trigger. Because I simply believed and stepped into the wardrobe. Because life on earth was too traditional. Because no one walks around with a sword in hand and bow and arrows strapped onto they’re back. Because queens don’t just travel around in sleighs offering Turkish Delight to random bystanders. Because one man had an idea, and created something far beyond anyone else’s imagination. Because life on earth was too traditional, therefore, I choose to live in Narnia."
Yes, I'm a fangirl. Yes, I'm obsessed with Narnia and William Moseley. Yes, I'll let him choose for himself, but no, I'm not going to calm down.
There's a photo challenge over at Little Somethings!! The theme is black and white, and it just so happens I was JUST taking pictures (I'll post the rest of them over at my photography blog)
(I uploaded it to this blog so the picture itself would be bigger)
*Sigh*. Isn't it pretty?
I especially love the little flower in the middle.
This is a crochet/knitted/I'm honestly not sure hat that I wore years ago for Easter, and it was sitting in my big basket of American Girl stuff (I have five of those dolls. Five dolls = tons of accessories)
TODAY IS WILLIAM PETER MOSELEY'S 24th BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow. It kinda looks like I steam pressed it with a giant typewriter or something....ANYWAY....
Get ready, because this post is going to have ALOT of fangirl-ness. And NOW, to announce what I'll be doing for Will's birthday today...
I'm going to be posting alot of facts about him that I know. And I know ALOT. Atleast I HOPE, since Anna loves him too, and you never know WHAT could happen. MOVING SWIFTLY ALONG...
So, let's get started!!
William Peter Moseley was born on April 27th, 1987. His dad's name is actually Peter, and he handed it down to Will by middle name. That's so cool, don't know you think?
His first really big [actually lead/co-star/whatever] role was the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, but he'd been an extra in the movie "Cider with Rosie" and had an uncredited role in "Goodbye, Mr. Chips". So, I guess you could say after these two small roles he was joined up with three other people (Anna, Skandar and Georgie) to re-make the Chronicles of Narnia.
His nickname is sometimes "Wizzle", but I call him "Will" (and I don't even know the guy! but hey, I have hope) Anna and I were talking the other day and she said that he and Anna Popplewell dated for a little while. I'm going to pray it's a rumor and go on with life...
Aren't they the bestest brother and sister?? How could they...*ahem, coughing* go....*clearing throat* oo--out. MOVING SWIFTLY ALONG....
You could say after the first movie I fell in love, and proceeded to check Wikipedia, and Google and IMDB for ANYTHING William...it actually didn't stop. Okay, maybe it did for a few weeks because I had a crush on...I forgot. That's how important Will is. And, you know, three years go by, and a few days before Prince Caspian comes out, Will, Ben, and Anna are on the Rachael Ray Show. DUDE THE GUY GREW UP.
You know I started fantasizing...oh...Lordy... Time goes on, he grows out his hair, cuts it again, grows it out and shows up at the Teen Choice Awards with Emma Roberts. You know I HAD to find out why he was there. The Pevensie's wouldn't show up at an American awards show unless there was something happening in the future for their film career. Yeah, so now, he's going to be in this movie called "A Great Education" after being attached, and then, unattached to the movie "Ironclad".
(had to post this picture. Had to.)
Last night, I was watching that new tv show called "the Voice" (out of anger because they cut my Biggest Loser short) and that show is really addicting....ANYWAY, this couple sang the song "Falling Slowly" from that movie "Once". I admit I haven't really heard that song, but I re-wrote the song. Isn't that weird? I think so.
I basically re-wrote the song and made it into a big poem about this woman who's in love with a man....but they're not together. It's like they're an "almost" in her dreams, but then she wakes up. Or something like that....I think.
SO, thanks to "the Voice" I dreamed about William Moseley last night. HOW AWESOME IS THAT?!??!!
Their expressions and thumbs up make it VERY awesome! Lol, okay, I need to stop.
So, I was at another one of those blogger proms/private convention things with all of my blogger friends, and you know, all of the girls favorite actors/crushes showed up.
So, y'all decided to do a little...I wouldn't say survey, but you decided to observe a day in the life of one of your fellow bloggers. I got chosen. Of course I did.
So, I was just playing around, and then, the song "Falling Slowly" came on..I kinda started singing alot to the first few lines and then started changing the lyrics, until I re-wrote the whole song.
Lauren asked me who I'd dedicate the song to, since you know songs should be dedicated to someone, don't you think? And I said...no one really. And she started laughing...haha...and then Will got all curious, so I was in the spotlight. Oh..joy.... I just said it could be for anyone and we kinda went back to the hotel (we took up a WHOLE hotel, how cool is that??!) and I was sitting on the deck near the pool at night, and guess who just HAD to come out...
He kinda started asking me saying, "So if you could pick any guy to dedicate this to, who would it be?" and I said, "No one in particular, why?" I was kinda thinking..oh Good Lord...not now...
he said "I don't know, you tell me." and I kinda got to the point and asked "Do you want to be the guy I dedicate this to?" he kinda smirked and sat next to me, and said "It's your decision, of course, it would be a great souvenir for this trip to America." then we kinda started talking about how great our food is. Whoop!! Barbeque for the win! Okay, okay, I'll keep going. Then somehow we got back on subject, and eventually I said "Goodnight, Peter." And he left.
You know how....remorseful-ish I felt? I'm not one of those girls who says "marry me" on the spot, I want him to romance me....very..slowly.
ANYWAY, I sat down and wrote down Will's name in the dedication spot-type-thingy-whatever, and I heard a voice say "I knew it."
Then the dreams switched. MY DREAMS ALWAYS HAVE TO END LIKE THIS!! Oh, whatever.
Maybe in a different post I'll show you my version of "Falling Slowly".

Feast your eyes, ladies. I think after nearly seven years it isn't just a girlish crush anymore, is it? I hate the fact that the guys in the movies are always better. It's kind of just a dream that we may get someone like Peter Pevensie in real life. And if I don't, God will just have to make me a twin ;)
