Banquet Dresses

So at the end of 8th grade this year, we have a banquet for all the 8th graders as a kind of "last hurrah" of middle school. So everybody dresses up really prettily (I know because I was a server last year and saw the dresses) with a fancy dress, fancy hair, fancy makeup, and fancy shoes and jewelry. So I thought it'd be fun to post dresses that I think are cute and get your feedback on what you think! It can't be strapless (dress code rule), so I'd obviously have to cover up strapless dresses with a sweater or cardigan as you "fashionistas" call it :) 

So what'd'ya think? I probably won't end up buying any of these, I'll probably find mine used because I love second hand shopping where you don't have to pay full price but can find some really great stuff, but it's always fun to look at these anyway :) I'll do this every so often and get your opinion and maybe, you can share some that you think would be cute (and appropriate…

Hey guys! So as many of you fellow writers know, next month is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and Emma convinced me to do it and told me how to sign up and all that. So I'm doing it! It'll be really fun, my first year and all. So if y'all are doing it too, tell me and add me so we can be Writing Buddies! My name on there is July A. Emmance, so it'll be easy to find me. To find the link to the NaNoWriMo website, click on the picture at the top right hand of my blog that says NaNoWriMo participant.
Happy Writing!

Happy 10/11/12!

Hello and welcome to today's post. So if y'all haven't noticed, it's 10/11/12 today! I just thought that was a bit intriguing and so I shared it with you guys. So anyway, this week has gone by really fast, don't you think? But I think my brain is fried so I think I'll need all weekend to recover. Plus I'm sooo tired because I haven't been sleeping well lately. It probably doesn't help that I've been staying up late, but whatever. We have a few things for homework tomorrow, so I should really get on that, oh and here's my Bible memory practice... I'll do it for you guys:
John 6:35
Then Jesus declared, "I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in my will never be thirsty."

So talk to you guys tomorrow hopefully, and I'll try to do another book review soon!

Guest Post by A.J. Ryan (he is my friend from school)

Hi, My name is A. J. Ryan, and I am doing a guest post. (thank you July) I was reading her blog, and it is really cool, so I am doing a guest post. I love to read and write and play piano. I also like to make poems. Here are a couple of them that I made:

Thee lady of thee light! How fire seeseth thou beautifully! How it strikeseth across thou sky and arcs down to thy earth. How dangerous and beautiful thou can be!
This is talking about lightning, for it can be dangerous and beautiful it can be.

How thy blood like tears,  fell to thee everlasting pool of shame and regret, how thy crying shan't subside, from the everlasting waterfall of anguish and repent, Oh, how longth, 'till thee sorrow shall cease,
I got inspired to write this when I was watching a movie called the Outsiders. The movie is pretty good, but the book is amazing. I strongly encourage people to read it. Anywho, one of the characters died and it made me write to poems, this is the better one. 
I hope to do more guest posts la…

What I Love

Hello everyone! I'm sure you're all wondering, "Why in the world would July post all her secret crushies on this blog?"
But no, the title What I Love does not refer to a person, but alas, a thing. I just love finding out random facts about people! So I'll tell you mine, and then you can tell me yours in a comment...
Here we go.
I just LOVE hot drinks! Whether it be tea, hot chocolate, butter beer (HP fans would know), lattes, or just plain hot water, yum.
Ok now it's your turn to tell me yours... Sorry for the loopiness of this post... my head is sort of floating away at this moment for reason's not specifiable at this moment... please wait until further notice. Ok so tell me what you love! I want to see loads of comments people! Haha :D

Guest Post by Hilda!

Hi guys! First of all, I gotta say thanks to July for selecting me as this contest's winner. I'm excited! :)  THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! :)

I've never done a guest post before, so here goes. Isn't it exciting that Fall is here? I just saw the forecast and it says it will rain next week. YAY RAIN! I know some of you like rain too. So cool when you have something in common. For this Christmas, what are you going to give to your family? Usually my dad and my brother are hard to shop for, but I think I'll give my brother an Itunes card. :)

Okay, I don't want to bore you anymore (sorry, I don't have good material today, LOL). So here is the first sentence for July's new story. TA-DA!

"It was so cold outside, and it was still autumn."


So, thank you Hilda! I have started the new sentence story using Hilda's sentence, so click here for the link! Same rules apply, they are on the document. Please read the rules before you start and make sure…

The moldy wooden floor creaked as Aria tiptoed toward the kitchen where the meager, but beneficial food was stored. Aria was really craving a piece of strawberry cheesecake. But the sad thing was, Aria was allergic to strawberry cheesecake, so how on earth would she be able to eat the delicacy that she so deeply desired? That explains why she was sneaking to the kitchen, undetected, as far as she knew, to cut herself a slice of her mother’s famous cake. Ari…
