Sawdust & Diamonds

Hi, today was productive and I am very tired.

Thanks to ye who commented; Elizabeth, Vanessa, Amy, Claire (YOU'VE NEVER BEEN TO IHOP?!), and Alycia (I'm glad you got a listography).

Ah, but yes. I woke up this morning, wandered all zombie-like out of my bedroom and into the kitchen to find that there we had almost nothing to eat, so I resorted to toast and a fiber bar for my breakfast. After my shower I watched "American History X" with my dad. It was a really, really incredible movie. Brutal to watch at times, but really incredible. GO WATCH IT.

After that my dad and I went to go pick up my little sister from her friend's birthday party, and we got lost trying to find it. Once we got there I got to eat the cutest (but not the tastiest) cupcake ever.

We went to Home Depot and got some things we needed, but we also looked at paint and painting supplies, and my dad agreed to buy some of it, and I picked out the color I want. It's a lovely shade of light blue called "Sailor Mickey". I couldn't resist picking from the Disney line of paints... hahaha.

We concluded our errand-running with a trip to Publix. We got a ton of food, thankfully, including chocolate chip cookies (they're not homemade, but they're still delicious), mint chocolate chip ice cream (my favorite), and pizza dough. When we got home I got to make pizza for dinner.


I got a text message from Ally (of FTFK), telling me to drop everything I was doing and get on Skype, because she had to show me something.

And when I answered her video call, GUESS WHO WAS SITTING NEXT TO HER.


I freaked out for a solid ten minutes. I was so happy for them, I had no idea they had planned this. Dana was visiting some family that live near Ally, so Ally's boyfriend drove Ally out to see her. Isn't that exciting and amazing? I Skyped with them for over an hour, and even though I was really happy to see them together I also felt sad that I wasn't there with them. But we discussed possible future plans for me to take a train to see Ally or for Dana to come visit me, and that gave me hope. It won't be for a while, but still.

I felt like this just really helped solidify FTFK. We have such a strong bond and we really are a family. The girls have become SO important to me over the past year and a half, it's ridiculous.

And I can't wait for the day we all get to be together at the same time. But seeing as we're all underage and live all over the country, it's really difficult right now. One day, though...

Anyway. I'm off for the night. I need sleep. Love you guys.


  1. Oh, I was going to mention I hadn't been to Ihop either. Is it any good?

    I love American History X and cupcakes very much. I don't like cake but cupcakes are so adorable.

    I've been wanting to redo my room for forever but I share a itsy bitsy room with my little sister so it's sort of out of the question. That's sounds like a really pretty color though. :]

    Oh my gosh, Dana and Ally in the same room equals mega amazingness, like I can't even imagine. If all the FTSK members got together and made a video that would be, dare I say it, epic. Wow, I hate that word but really. I hope it works out for you guys and the whole family can get together.

  2. I still need to see American History X, I've been wanting to for a really long time aha. I've also never been to Ihop, but I don't think there's one around here so.. I'll have to wait.

    Maybe someday you guys can do what like vlogcandy (if you even watch their videos) does and go on super fun trips or something.

  3. I don't even know what Ihop is D: i'm from england, so ya know.
    omnomnom cupcakes! would you rather eat a really tasty cupcake, or theee cutest cupcake ever? homemade pizza is so good. i love redecorating, i can't wait to see how your room turns out :)

    FGIHDRLGIH i can't believe they met up! that is SO cool. the day when all the ftfk family meet up will be mind blowing :)

  4. haha, perhaps you meant to question my non existent ihopness? cause as far as i know, i was the dork who talked about ihop in a comment to the last blog, but i could be wrong. i don't know. xD
    but i'll just go ahead and say that no, i have never been to ihop. D: pancakes are glorious and amazing, but the closest ihop to me is like, maybe 3 hours away or so? i don't even know. someday i will go, though. someday. hopefully.
    anyway, american history x? i feel like i should watch it because you recommended it, but after taking AP US history, i don't think i ever want to watch anything involving history ever again. it'll bring back the memories of all the work of that class. D:
    "sailor mickey" sounds like such a cute name for paint! i hope you're going to show us the finished product of your room, cause it's going to be so cute and i can't wait to see it!
    & dana and ally meeting each other like that is awesome! if all of ftfk ever meets up like that, it'll be grand. you guys would probably make so many funny and great videos and just overall have a great time together! once that day happens, it'll be so grand. :D

  5. I seriously teared up seening Dana and Ally meeting. I hope you all make a video with each other, that would just..make my day and month and all that. :3

    Ohbtw, I really want chocolate chip cookies now.

  6. AHH BREE IT'S BEEN SO LONG SINCE I COMMENTED! my apologies, i was at sleepaway camp.
    you've been talking about skins alot, and i never actually saw the show. isn't that british? if it is, how do you watch it, on demand? i'd like to see it (:
    it would be AMAZING if all of ftfk met up. i would die. i'm actually meeting my long time internet pal brittany this week and i'm super excited!
    btw, i just got the craving for mint chocolate chip ice cream.
    lots of love,
