Hoggy Warty Houses

Nick and I have been reading all of the Harry Potter books together for the past few months. Right now we're on book number 5, The Order of the Phoenix, and desperately trying to get through it so that we can go see the new movie that's out and based on book 6, The Half Blood Prince.
I've always wondered which house I would have been sorted into, and I've always secretly hoped for Gryffindor, although most readers probably hope for that! I also thought maybe Ravenclaw since I loved to read and learn things. Today just for fun, I googled "Sorting Hat" and I found a couple of quizzes online and I took them, and I was sorted into Gryffindor!

Characteristics for Gryffindors:
  • courage
  • bravery
  • daring
  • nerve
  • chivalry
I'm trying to get Nick to take it, but I am pretty sure that he would be sorted into Hufflepuff. Now I just need to get him to take the quiz to see if I'm right.

Characteristics for Hufflepuff:
  • hard work
  • loyalty
  • tolerance
  • fair play
Take the quiz and see where you are sorted! I don't think that I have single friend that would be sorted in Slytherin.
Nick just took the test, and sure enough... he's a badger! That's about what I would expect from someone as steadfast and kind as him.

What's up?


Just an update about Nick and I. There is NOTHING NEW going on with us. We have been very, very lazy and have not worked on our house or gone anywhere or done anything worth blogging about in a while, other than the 4th of July. This has also given me more time to read Townhall, which may be a bad thing for anyone who reads this! Doing nothing has been really nice actually, but it makes for a boring blog... not that we're that interesting to begin with.

Here's one thing I can leave you with, a riddle...

A thousand blankets absorbing the storm. What am i?

Oh ho,

Tres chic!

So we're in TX visiting my mom and dad! Yesterday we had a girls' trip with me, my mom, and my sweet niece Kendall, out to the Woodlands just to do some grocery shopping. That was the original intent anyway... but for some reason, we stopped at Kids Gap, I think to pick up some leggings for Kendall.

Well, all that I will say is that if Nick and I ever have girls, he is going to be in for a surprise! I don't think that there is anything more fun than shopping for clothes for little girls, and if we ever have one, she is going to be dressed to the nines :).

I walked in not planning to buy anything, but I saw a dress that was the cutest thing I have ever seen and before I knew it... I had spent over $100!

So when we got home, we did what any American girls would do, we put on a fashion show! So, ladies and gents, for your viewing pleasure, I now present...

Miss Kendall Annette Thistlethwaite!

Isn't she just the most beautiful child? Ok, I know I'm biased, but I do love this baby so much. To me, she is the living reminder that God will give us "a crown of beauty instead of ashes."
