Prom, Flowers, Hamsters.. Life!

My week so far has been a mix of relaxation and stress and I love it haha! My school work load has decreased significantly which is a great thing, but I'm feeling senioritis setting in hard! I feel like the less work I get, the less motivated I am to do it! It's odd.
Funny story here.. when I was an underclassmen, I used to judge the seniors so harshly for using the excuse of senioritis for being lazy! However now that I am a senior and my days of high school are dwindling down, I now understand how they felt!! It's hard to stay focused once the major test are done with!! 

Beautiful Spring Sunset

I just have to show you guys this picture that I took over the weekend!! It's absolutely beautiful!! One thing that I do love about the spring is the fact that the days are much longer! Even at 6 pm, there is still sun out! I was outside with my camera and I decided to just snap a few photos of the sunset. I didn't know that they would turn out so professional looking haha. This picture reminds me of something out of a movie!! 

Spring Flowers

Going along with the theme of photography and spring, my sister also made use of the beautiful weather and took a few photos of her own! She took lots of pictures of the blooming flowers in our garden. The picture that you see here is my favorite picture that she took! We get these white flowers as well as some orange tulips and even some roses. The roses haven't bloomed yet, but when they do, there will be lots of photos! These flowers bloom every year for us and they are just ohh so perfect! 

Beaver in Backyard

Woodchuck in Backyard
Is this a beaver... woodchuck.. or something else haha?
Okay so here is a fun story! So a few days ago my sister heard this sound outside of the house and this is what she saw when she looked out the window!! She called me over and her original thought was that it was a raccoon or a groundhog... I told her that it clearly wasn't a raccoon and that it must be a beaver or possible a huge squirrel.. (lol.. we both obviously do not know our animals!) I eventually told someone about what we saw and they concluded that there was no was we could have seen a beaver and that it must have been a woodchuck... I googled an image of all these animals and concluded that it was for sure not a raccoon, a squirrel, or a groundhog. However, I could not differentiate between a beaver and a woodchuck. They look like the same animals.. It's just that the beaver has wet fur for the majority of the time! 
I still don't know what kind of animal it was to this day! All I know is that it lives under my neighbor's home! It's going to be pretty funny if the beaver/woodchuck pops through my neighbor's home lol. I think it would be pretty cool if it happened to me though my mother would not appreciate it!

In other news, we got some really yummy candy over the weekend! I was looking for some hard candy to have so I got these thinking that they were hard candy. haha well they are not, but that's okay because these are still pretty delicious!

Prom Proposal Flowers
Prom!!!!
Okay so now for one of my most exciting part of my post! Last Friday, guess what happened? 
You might be able to figure it out from the above photo!.. .I got asked to prom!! He asked me in class and even got me a bouquet of pink flowers! (My favorite color! ) 
 Ahh!! I'm super excited now!! I thought I would be going solo this year (which I didn't mind at all) but I'm glad that I got asked!! I mean it is senior prom and I did secretly want someone with me for photos and to dance with =) I'm more pumped for prom than ever now!! 

Prom Proposal Flowers

Prom Proposal Flowers

I actually don't have much of my prom details made yet and I kinda want to put it off though I know I shouldn't haha. I think prom is a bit overrated sometimes (actually it is quite overrated), but I definitely still want to look pretty! I have my dress picked out and ordered. The dress is different than what I originally wanted, but it's so beautiful and I'm hoping it flatters my body well since it's backless! =)
 I want to show you guys what it looks like, but I'll hold off on it until I get it! I'll tell you though that the dress I chose is red colored.

I'll let you guys in on a little secret I have.. A few years ago, I always had this dream of prom being this picture perfect night like in the movies. I dreamed of wearing a huge poofy pink dress covered in sparkles with big curly hair and a face full of makeup. Then my date would pick me up and we would go to prom together and we would be king and queen.. etc... just that perfect night haha....... I had quite the imagination back then!
Now I don't really care about all that happening though I will admit that the pink poofy dress is something I still want!! I swear, I'm still a little girl at heart~!

Aren't you loving all the spring flowers?
So.. does anyone have any idea what kind of animal that could be?... I'm thinking a beaver, but why in the world would a beaver be in someone's backyard/underground?
How was your senior prom if you want? Any advice? =)

  4. Sooo many flowers in this post I love it! Hahahah. Awww and it's so sweet that someone asked you to prom! We did have prom during my high school senior year but prom isn't as big of a thing here in Singapore as it is there in the US so it just turned out to be like a big gathering of friends and classmates over fancy dinner :P Not one guy (or not that i heard of) asked a girl to be his prom date with flowers/chocolates/balloons or stuff like that. It was pretty much couples who went together and the singles just went together as groups Hahahaha! I can't wait to hear about how your prom goes and how your dress would look on you!!! :D

    Anyway, I think that is most probably a woodchuck. The most obvious difference between a beaver and a woodchuck would be that beavers have kind of wide, flat and hairless tails, while woodchucks have normal looking tails with fur. From what I could see from your photos, most definitely a woodchuck! HAHA.

    Have a great day! :)

    1. hehe yes lots of flowers!!! It's spring so why not?!
      It also sounds like a lot of fun to have a huge gathering of friends. It's much more causal and there isn't so much pressure lol. I'm pretty sure we can go single here as well, but there is pressure to find a date for senior prom.

      ohh You might be right about that woodchuck! I'm googling "woodchuck tails" now and the tail does look a lot more like a woodchuck tail. A beaver's tail is quite distinctive haha!
      Thank you!

  5. Oh wow, such gorgeous flowers.. I love staring at them! I'm kinda miss looking at bloomed flowers coz all flowers here are dead since it's autumn/fall hehe. Aww, I would get freaked out if I found an animal somewhere near our house, haha, especially if i don't know what it is =D I can't wait ot see your prom dress, I'm looking forward to it!! :)

    Take care always, love Christine ~ xo
