Day 30: When did you become a fan of Doctor Who?


I guess I became a fan during season one and the Ninth Doctor :) (Though I like Matt Smith and David Tennant better) And this concludes the 30 day Doctor Who challenge that I have been doing all month long :)

all images used in posts were from google
except for this one :)

Day 29: Favorite Guest Star


Even though she played a regular companion earlier in the Doctor Who years I liked Elizabeth Sladen's character Sarah Jane Smith and how Elizabeth came back as a guest star on the show :)


7 Quick Takes Friday

Going from 60 degrees at the beginning of the week, several tornadoes, lots of rain and wind, are included in that, to 26 degrees at the end of the same week. Last week on Saturday night it got down to 6 degrees. So it went from nice spring weather to really cold winter weather. When I move out, when ever that is, I want to move to someplace that doesn't have terribly cold winters or really hot summers, because I don't like extremely cold or really hot weather. Once I find out which states have mild winters and summers I will let you know when I decide to move there ;) :)
Tomorrow is the last day of NaNoWriMo and I haven't been to bad with my procrastination. There was only about three days total where I either didn't write at all or only wrote a couple hundred words. But I have been trying to make up for the days where I didn't really write by trying to write at least two thousand or more words. 


The other day when I was looking though Pinterest I came across a recipe for Caramel White Hot Chocolate that sounded very delicious. Though the recipe is originally from here I am sharing it here as well :) So here is the recipe for Caramel White Hot Chocolate :)


Ingredients
  • 8 oz. Premium White Hot Chocolate (This is important, don’t buy the cheap stuff!)
  • 4 Cups of Milk or Cream
  • 1 Tbsp. Vanilla
  • 2 TBSP Caramel
  • Marshmallows
Instructions
  1. Combine all in ingredients in a Crockpot and stir frequently.
  2. Cook on low for about 4 hours until chocolate is melted and warm
  3. Add 2 TBSP of Caramel to each glass of Hot Chocolate before adding warm hot chocolate
  4. Top with Marshmallows & Serve

For Christmas I want to get this^^^t-shirt :) Not sure where I would wear it but I want to get one :) The only place that I found it on is Redbubble. I decided to share the link here to make it easier to fine ;) :) So here is the link to the website and the t-shirt.
On Saturday my sister Rosalina got a 1 Direction poster from a friend of her's as a belated birthday present. Of course when she pulled it out of her bag, I had to pick her up from the girl's group that she was at, she hit me in the eye with the end of it, she had meant to hit me on the head with it. Even though it was an accident it still hurt a little. This is her excited dance once we got home and she had opened it:



On Tuesday evening my mother, Yavi, Rosalinda, Rosy cheeks, TJ,  AJ and myself had the chance to watch the Doctor Who 50th episode!!!!! Friends of ours, who are also Whovians, invited us over to watch it since they could get it on demand. I really liked it and I want to watch it again, which I think we will be since Amanda didn't come with us. If you have seen the episode I suggest watching The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot video :) A different friend and fellow Whovian posted a link to the 35 Greatest Easter Eggs from the Doctor Who 50th Special. I read all of them and thought I didn't know that there were Easter eggs I did catch some of them :D

Day 27: Favorite Interview


Unfortunately I have never listened/watched any interviews with past and present Doctor Who folk so I can't say that I have a favorite one. This is the only day during the Doctor Who challenge where I haven't had something that was a favorite or a least favorite. My apologies about that. Though if you are interested in doing the same Doctor Who challenge that I am doing you can find it here:

I found it on pinterest in case anyone was wondering

Day 24: Favorite Quote


My favorite quote is from "The Christmas Invasion," mostly because he quotes The Lion King!!!!!!

"Well, yeah, you could. Yeah, you could do that, of course you could. But why? Look at these people: these human beings. Consider their potential. From the day they arrive on the planet, and blinking step into the sun. There is more to see than can ever be seen. More to do than - no, hold on... Sorry, that's the 'Lion King'. But the point still stands."~ Doctor Who "The Christmas Invasion"

Day 22: Favorite Friendship



My favorite doctor and companion friendship would have to be Eleven's and Clara's though they won't be together for much longer :( I would have done Donna but I put her as my favorite companion ;)




7 Quick Takes Friday

On Sunday friends of ours had a small surprise birthday party for their mom, who was surprised. Everyone had a nice time and Amanda and I got to hang out with our friends and we got to see two friends that he haven't seen in a little while as well.
Besides going to a party we got a lot of wind and rain on Sunday as well. A couple places got tornadoes as well. One town/city in my state got hit pretty hard by a tornado, so please say a prayer for them as they start rebuilding everything. Don't forget to pray for everyone in the Philippines who was affected by the typhoon that it not to long a go.
I apologies if my 2nd quick take was a little bit on the depressing side. Though this might not be considered depressing for some people, but tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who!!! and my mother, sisters and myself won't be able to watch it then because we have a million things to do that day. But we will watch it! When we do watch it I shall try to post my thoughts on it as soon as I possibly can, but I have to remember that I said that ;)

Tomorrow fellow blogger Anne-girl is having a writ-athon over on her blog Scribblings of My Pen and Tappings of My Keyboard. If you are interested in joining those who will be doing it with her you can follow the link and read what she wrote about it here :) I am going to see if I can join in since I have a lot of running around to do. But we shall see...
Since we are on the subject of writing I can't decide if I want to change the name of the story that I am doing for NaNoWriMo again or not. Like I usually say, we shall see ;) Because the story I'm doing is a modern/slightly medieval story I want to make a couple covers with modern/medieval feels to them but I haven't found anything so far. In the event that I don't find pictures that I like to use I might have to go take pictures to use. Once I actually make a cover or two I'll post them here for you to see.
Though I didn't take this picture *points to the picture* I want to do something like this for one of the pictures after my wedding if I get married. It would also be fun to take the picture as well.


Even though Thanksgiving is next week I saw this fun adorable edible turkey idea on Pinterest :) Next year I want to do something like this :)

LORD OF THE RINGS Medley (Harp Twins electric) Camille and Kennerly


Since I have been just posting a lot of Doctor Who related stuff and 7 Quick Takes Fridays I thought I would shake things up a little and post a Lord of the Rings Medley on harp!!!! And in case you're wondering they do covers of a lot of songs, like the theme song from Doctor Who.

Day 15: Most annoying character


To me the most annoying character is Captain Jack Harkness.


7 Quick Takes Friday

The trailer for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary came out the other day!!!!!!!!!! I am really excited, especially since it come airs a week from tomorrow!!!!!!! In case you haven't seen it yet here is the link for the trailer!!!!!!! They are also showing it theaters as well, but no one in my family won't be able to go see it then, though we all really want too.
I found this on Pinterest the other day :)


I found this ^^^on Tumblr
My apologies for posting a lot of pictures that I have found on the internet recently on here I had to add this one to the pile :)

As you most likely know by now, we finally got some snow out where I live. Though it was a rather thin layer, not like the amount they got up in Minnesota, it was still snow. The flurry of large snow flakes that we got last month didn't really count since it didn't stick around at all. I would have taken pictures of it, but I was at work when it was snowing and so the only camera I had was the one on my phone and I don't like the pictures that the camera on my phone takes. So when we get more snow and I am at home with my camera I will take pictures :)
This sums me up perfectly :D

Since this is the end of the first week on NaNoWriMo I figured I'd share a small section from my story :)

One cold December night on the outskirts of Paris, France a messenger arrived at the palace and demanded to see King Leonard and Queen Clotilde. When the king and queen came down to the entrance way the messenger told them that the king's younger brother Reynard was going to kill them and their eight month old son Arthur, so that Reynard's son Leviathan could become king of France when he became older instead of the current prince. Nodding Leonard asked the messenger how he had come across the information. Clearing his throat a bit nervously the messenger said that he had found it written on a piece of parchment that was being sent from Reynard to his personal adviser and he had intercepted the messenger between the two.
Even though Halloween is over with I thought I'd share the costume I wore to a friend's halloween party, since I didn't do it in last weeks quick takes :) So here is proof that Katniss and the Doctor have met before ;)

I know it's not quite Thanksgiving yet but I found this really cute idea for Thanksgiving themed cake pops on pinterest! You can find the original post for this here :)


Yes I know it's only the end of the first week of November, but I found another cute idea on Pinterst, that is Christmas themed. The tutorial for how to do these can be found here.

Earlier this week my sister Amanda found this story on the internet and shared it on Facebook. It is an awesome story about a group of men who have been playing a single game of tag for 23 years. Here are three rules that the men added :)

  1. The game will only take place during the month of February.
  2. There are no tag backs (retagging the person who just tagged you).
  3. If you are asked if you’re it, you have to answer truthfully.
It is a cute story :)
