The Instas

So, originally we were only suppost to be in Alabama for a mere two weeks, every monday we've said we were going to leave, but every sunday pushed it back another week. 
I have to say I couldn't be happier with that decision. 
After the walk, i got so depressed... like crying about everything, every memory, every picture, every...everything. Katie and Hailey wanted me to go to school with them and I was actually really scared about it, but the day came where i had planned to go, and by that time I needed to be around people. 
The walk was like eating a lot of chocolate, and enjoying it thoroughly... then after the four days of european chocolate eating is over, it's like puking. mental and emotional throw up. 
I went to their school, and loved it. i've been homeschooled my entire life (except 5 days in new mexico... but that doesn't count) So public school really, REALLY scares me. I'm in some ways sheltered. 
Example... maybe...
Katie, Hailey and I have come to the conclusion that we have no understanding of flirting. like at all. no understanding or way of seeing it when it's happening. we've had a few run-ins with teenage boys, starbucks barista boys, skater boys and what have you. but people have thought we were flirting when we of course weren't. is giggling flirting now? or what about being nice? ugh... any ways. it turned out that the school was not at all what I thought. there are five people in their class, and everyone is nice... and they sing the beatles. like really? we sang yellow submarine the first morning i was there. plus it's not public school... it's private community school, so big difference. 
What i'm building up to is the pictures. there is more, but these are the more interesting ones.
p.s. these are not in order at all. because I'm lazy.

Dumpling Fest 2012, Hope, Hailey, Katie and I went to Cracker Barrel, and had a dumpling fest. there were 13 bowls of them on that table. we stuffed ourselves in dough, we went to see
The Perks Of Being A Wallflower and cried our eyes out.

Milo and my (weird) worst fear...s. don't ask me why i'm. scared of taxidermy... i have no idea.

Painting and Drinking hot cocoa on a day alone. 

Out of the whole room of weird things they decided to label the water bucket. okay...

And this is when we stuffed ourselves with pizza and almost died from excitement.

After The Lumineers... Mellon collie, floating on a cloud sort of day.

Flash back to the first day of the pilgrimage. ready to walk. we did not look as cheery at the end of the day.

Here is the story, their friends, their cute friends, they don't want to marry each other, i think they should. (Sorry Katie)

After going to Chick-fil-a annnnnd Starbucks for the 5th time, looked over the pretty city of Birmingham.

Yeah, we were trying to stop laughing long enough to actually fall asleep, we though Sam could help. he did.

Mushroom hunting at Red Mountain. so fun!

Last minute movie excursion. 

Bill was singing about thrifting. have still yet to go.

Today at church the littlest Wolnski coloured with us. she finally sat with me... she said she had to think about it. She also said Jesus looks like a girl and she WOULD NOT draw faces on her brothers because she swore they didn't have any.

So the opening band for The Lumineers was called Paper Bird, and the most attractive member of The Lumineers played keyboard for both bands for that show. after the paper bird's set, he reached down from the stage and handed ME the set list and told me to get it signed. i seriously was shaking so, so, so, so, so, so bad! it was amazing.

We worked up the nerve to give fake names at starbucks, we had to practice not laughing. I was Plum... and the lady said  had a cute name.. i felt so bad. i really hope none of them reads Bleubird!

The Best Besties. 

Katie rockin' the Jo!

Sweet River, and Sweet Tea. it's bama y'all.

After a night of socializing and awkward conversations...

A nature walk at nomad's land alone on the mellon colley day.

ALLLLLL of the walkers.

A very full bus.

Worship at the Wolnski's... a seriously amazing family.

Pickle Party in the Pantry tradition.

After the Lumineers, katie whistled AND played a song for a guy in the opening band. plus Stelth was awesome.

I'll be back soon....

Well, the pilgrimage was quite amazing. 
I love the people here so much! 
There was some amazing worship involving A LOT of crying, and wonderful pilgrim music ;) 
Hailey, Katie and I walked many, many miles barefoot. 
We stayed up late and woke up early.
i had oatmeal for the first time.
we saw at least three dead snakes, and ran away into the street screaming like babies.... 
and i also made this video.

Hope y'all enjoy!!


Alabama... Yay!

So, This week is THE THIRD PILGRIMAGE!!!!! (post 1 2 (kinda) 3... yet to be posted) I am beyond excited to see everyone and walk another 45 miles. 
We left after church yesterday, and have been driving non stop since.
The ride up the drive way was the longest ride ever! i was trying to stay cool, but i seriously felt like i was going to barf! Now, i just have one day before everyone comes...
I'm so anxious! at this moment i'm sitting on a school bus, blogging and listening to The Avett Brothers new album.
I figured out something amazing on my camera. i can finally take videos longer than 5-8 seconds! So i'll be taking lots of little videos, and i"ll put it together at the end of the walk.
I'm hoping it will be magical looking!
be expecting many, many pictures also.
speaking of pictures... here are my instagrams from the trip down.
Packing...This was the organized bag... I also brought another full suitcase, and big bag of shoes, my backpack with A LOT, my travel bag and my purse... i am not a light packer in the least.

This is just half of it...

Okay, so i asked my mom if she could make me a cowl scarf... and within and hour and a half, it was done. she is amazing.

So when my mom brought this to the car, i was tired and grumpy, she said "trust me" i did, and it was fabulous. i have no clue why i doubted the wonderfulness in that einstein's tub.

Entering Nashville.... i could have peed. actually i did a little ;) That's when i really started freaking.

I know i'm close when i see Milo's at a gas station.

Blogging in the bus. I am SO tired! Love Love!!

Woodsy weddings are the best! I know it may be a little too early to start planning my wedding... but i don't care.

My ombré' is so light because of my strawberry blonde hair... But if I had shorter and darker hair, I would hope it would look like this!!!

So, i haven't blogged in exactly one month... Even though i didn't say anything, i wanted one month off to clear my head and rest. I was having this weird mid-life (not mid) crisis, where i was mad at everything and everyone for trying to be something they weren't and aren't... mostly on social sites. i'm really into real people. i don't care if you're a bitch, just be real about who you are, don't try to be cool in some way. Image was the word that kept coming to me... when people try to put a different image on... pinterest, facebook, blogs, instagram... every social networking site i'm on and involved with i see someone who i know, acting like someone i don't know.

I also got an insanely weird and creepy anonymous comment on one of my posts... it made me re-think what i post, and i changed my privacy settings. I want this to be a happy and inspiring place, where i don't have to think about all the scary things in the world. i am an EXTREMELY sensitive person, i don't handle conflict of ANY kind well, so to have someone say they saved pictures of me on their computer "for themselves" creeped me out the ever loving door. i don't know if it was someone i know or someone i don't know, if it was a man or a woman. i just got really freaked and even thought about deleting my blog. but it is really fun for me, i just don't want to put pressure on myself to post everyday, i want to have quality posts with words... haha, and if i push myself, their not going to be good.

i also want to change the look of my blog a tad. on my banner i have "photo+fashion+project blog" even though i would call myself a creative person, i don't do many projects. i do however love music, so i'll add stuff here and there, change just small things to make it look more put together.... so anyways. thanks for reading this long post. and i'll be back soon :)
