Hello everyone! I’m sorry that I haven’t posted for awhile, but I am today, so- YAY! 😀
I have been having so much fun editing pictures lately and I just have to show them to you!!
And just a quick note- if you have any trouble reading the words, you can click on the picture to make it larger and you can read it perfectly 😉
He he! All of the pictures are Frozen- just an FYI 😉
This quote “Try as we might, happy as we were. We can’t go back.” has been in my head for days! It’s from North & South and it just seemed to work so perfect with Frozen
These are lyrics to a song from Disney’s Treasure Planet. I love this song!
Psst- So sorry for the yellow arrow on the side. The app I was using wasn’t saving my work, so I finally had to take a screenshot, so that’s why there’s a yellow arrow 😉
A quote I often say- from The Lord of The Rings
Also from LOTR- said by Bilbo. I know, I know. It’s so sad
Another quote from LOTR that I often say in my head.
These are lyrics to the song “May It Be” that plays in the credits of “The Fellowship of The Ring” I LOVE this song!!!
“May it be when darkness falls- your heart will be true” Also from “May It Be” 😀
These are lyrics to one of my favorite Disney love songs!! It’s from “The Lion King 2- Simba’s Pride” and the song is called “Love Will Find A Way”
LOVE the LEGO Movie!!! LOL!
I’m sure most of you know what this is from, but just in case you don’t- it’s from Toy Story 😉
OMGOSH I LOVE WHEN THEY’RE KIDS!!! They are SO ADORABLE!!! 😀
Which one is your favorite?
Okay, with North & South being one of my all time favorite things to watch- how can I NOT post about it on here??
North & South is an amazing romance about a girl named Margaret Hale and a man named John Thornton. Pride & Prejudice was probably my favorite before I saw this! North & South has so much power to it and it makes me cry and die! It’s so sad and so good. And I promise you- when/if you watch it- you will feel SO sad for Mr. Thornton!!! And oh, my gosh, the music is so beautiful!! It literally gives me chills!
As the title says, this is a mini series. There are four episodes and they’re each an hour long. The night me and my mom watched it (we were only gonna watch one episode) we could not stop! We watched all four episodes in a row and died!! I probably didn’t go to bed until somewhere around midnight that night 😛
And once again, this is my favorite romance movie ever and believe me, I’ve seen a LOT! So, if you like romances go get settled to watch it (it’s on Netflix. And if you’re young, please get a parent’s permission before watching it. There is some violence 😉 ) in a comfy chair so you can hang on the edge of your seat and bring some tissues! You will be hooked! 😀
So, how many of you have heard of or like Squinkies? I have a ton of them and although I don’t play with them anymore- I still LOVE them! I’m here today to show you my collection of Squinkies! 😀
Here are my Squinkies from Brave.
These are Merida’s brothers- in human and bear form! 😛
The Witch, Fergus, Elinor, and two versions of Merida. Aren’t these ADORABLE?!
Some sets come with little “props” as I call them. Here is Merida’s target, Elinor as a bear, and Merida’s horse Angus. All of the little pegs you see, are where you place the Squinkies. Although on Angus, I place them in between the peg and the horse. It looks weird if they sit on the peg 😛
This is my Snow White set! I have all the dwarves, Prince Charming (or David as I call him), and two versions of Snow White. The set also came with The Evil Queen, but I gave her to my mom since I hadn’t seen Once Upon A Time and actually liked her yet 😉
Here are few from Tangled. Maximus, Pascal, Flynn (I know, his name is Eugene, but I never call him that. I like Flynn a lot better LOL! 😛 ), and Rapunzel! They are SO CUTE!!
Here’s my Sleeping Beauty set. The “props” are the Spindle, Maleficent as a dragon, and a bed. Then I have Prince Phillip, Aurora, Flora, Merryweather, and Fauna. I LOVE Merryweather!!
This is my Cinderella set! I have Bruno, Lucifer, Jaq, Gus, Mary, one of the little birds, Cinderella- Maid, Cinderella- Pink Dress, Cinderella- Blue Dress, Cinderella- Wedding Dress, Prince Charming, and The Fairy Godmother. My favorite has to be Gus!! 😀
This set is very small, but at least I have Belle and The Beast! It also came with the Rose and the mirror
Here’s The Genie, Aladdin, Jasmine, and the Sultan. Isn’t the Sultan adorable?!
*Gasp* I feel like I’m missing one!! I thought I had King Triton! Oh NO!!! I HAVE to find him!!! :O
Okay, sorry about that! I have Scuttle, Ariel, and Prince Eric. And it also came with a clam/oyster with a “dinglehopper” 😛
This was like an Animal Friends Set (or something like that 😛 )! The “props” are a Kennel, a play thing-y, and a tub
Here is Kaa, Baloo, Bambi, Thumper, Pumbaa, and Simba! I love Pumbaa and Bambi! 😀
Well, those are all of my Disney Squinkies! In the next part you’ll see all of my other Squinkies 😉
Do you have any Squinkies? Which one is your favorite?
What is Tsum Tsum? They are some of the cutest and chubbiest little things that are made by Disney!! I’m here to introduce you to my little Tsum (well, and the world of Tsum Tsum!)
This is Marie! She is one of the kittens from the Disney movie, “The Aristocats”. Normally I am not so obsessed with the character (but I do really like her!), but out of the Tsum Tsums that are out, she was the one that really stuck out to me! I mean look at her- she’s adorable!!
Um- where are you going, Marie?
Ah, yes. You want to hang out with your friend, Marshy!
Now, Marshy is not a Tsum. He’s actually a crocheted marshmallow that my mom made for me because I was so obsessed with the marshmallows in Cloudy With a Chance Of Meatballs 2! They are super chubby and bouncy! 😀
Anyways, Marie was white and just about the same size as Marshy, so I decided to put her on my shelf next to Marshy
Now, not only are there the little plushies that you can buy, but there is also an app available on iPods, iPhone, iPad, etc.!
This game is SO much fun!! I play it every single day!!
But the best part, is that there’s a little video before the game starts! It’s so adorable!!! 😀
Here’s some screenshots from the video:
Aren’t they CUTE?!
The game is super easy, too! You simply drag your finger over a group of tsums of 3 or more to clear them! It’s that simple! 😀
Note: *The rest of these pictures do not belong to me. They are screenshots from Instagram and Facebook.*
Here’s a group photo of a bunch of other chubby little tsums!
Look how Winnie The Pooh’s eyes are different! That is so cool!
Okay, Jiminy Cricket (#16)= ADORABLE!!! Look at that tiny little round face!!! 😀
And all of the Toy Story Tsums!! I really need to have Bullseye, Peas, and Lotso!! They are SO CUTE!!!
And okay Frozen fans- There are Elsa, Anna, and Olaf tsums!! I can NOT wait for these to come out!! Oh! And I also saw a picture of a Maleficent one! She’s adorable!! 😀
What do you think about tsums? Are you interested in getting one? Who would you like to get?
Fun fact! Tsum Tsum means “Stack stack”! That’s because they are stackable (another fun thing about them)
P.S. I said adorable and cute way too much in this post! 😛
At Disneyland, there is a little stand/shop that sells custom leather bracelets. They are SO much fun and I have quite a few of them and I just had to show them to you!
These are all 10 of my bracelets! I’ll tell you what they say:
Left Arm- top to bottom:
Jaclynn (my name)
Bitty Beanies (my crochet business)
LHOAG (Stands for littlehouseofamericangirl- my AG blog)
AG (American Girl)
Frozen (Hee hee!)
Right arm- Top to bottom:
I heart LOTR (I love Lord of the Rings)
There and Back Again (Bilbo’s book)
Once Upon A Time (TV show)
SwanThief (Meaning I support Emma and Neal being together- also from Once Upon A Time)
North&South (an amazing mini series that I will be talking to you about soon!)
I LOVE my bracelets and they are all so special because they represent something that is special to me. I wear at least one every day!
There are so many different colors and styles of bracelets to choose from! And you could also get leather keychains, pet collars, and more! And there are different fonts to choose from that you could even mix together!
One of the coolest things is that we made friends with one of the ladies that works there! We talked to her every time we saw her and she is super nice!! And now she and my mom text once in awhile! How cool is it that we made a friend at Disneyland? 😀
What would you put on your bracelet?
Four weeks ago today we lost Majesty (we had to put her down), my brother’s beautiful golden retriever. And although she was my brother’s dog, I loved her so much and I still sometimes cry when I think about her. Yesterday was one of those days with my mom and brother and myself.
Since this blog is about things I love, it seems only right that I post about her on here. A lot of these pictures are from her last days with us.
Majesty LOVED her squeaky toys, but her lightbulbs were her absolute favorites! She had 3 of them and almost always had one with her
She always looked so sweet in this position. <3
Majesty had this face a lot! I think it was when she was relaxed and happy that someone was with her
This is at the vet, the day we had her put down. You would have never guessed something was wrong with her or that she was in pain. She was always happy…
I totally loved when her ears were up like that! It made her a million times cuter!!
The people at the vet gave us a bag of dog treats to give her and Jordan fed her a lot! I believe she ate a bag and a half of treats!!
This picture melts my heart. My brother’s face when he was looking at her and petting her was so sweet and I could see how sad he was.
Now let’s look back at the past when she was a little “Butterball puppy”
I love this picture of her! I have it as my wallpaper on my iPod
She looks so cuddly wrapped in that blanket!!!
I used to love watching her eat the peanut butter out of the KONGs!
Jordan always had a little fun with her ears 😀
I loved when he would scrunch her face! He did it all the time and she didn’t even care 😛
This has got to be my favorite picture of Majesty. She is so beautiful and fluffy, her ears are up, and you can see her gorgeous gold eyes so well in this picture!
I miss Majesty so much and will never forget how on the last day, just a little while before they were gonna put her down, she let me hug her. I had never been able to hug her for that long before. I think she knew I was sad and that’s why she allowed it. The only one who could ever hug her was Jordan, so I was really happy that she let me.
I will never forget that day and how much we were hugging and kissing her. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever been through. I still look in the backyard and expect to see her there. And sometimes I think I hear her walking up to the door or in her crate. I pray that I will see her again someday.
I felt like making a Frozen post today, but the question was, what do I post about? Then I decided that it would be interesting to take a closer look at Elsa’s life
Starting off when Elsa is just a little girl- she’s probably around 7 years old. She’s just having a ton of fun with her little sister and her magic and making her sister happy.
Then the ice hits her head and Anna goes unconscious. Naturally she is very worried and scared for her sister right now.
So Grandpappie (the troll) heals Anna, but removes all magic from her memory. And their father decides that Anna needs to be kept away from Elsa. Right here I think I have mostly thought about how sad it is for Anna because she randomly loses her older sister with no explanation. But really, I think it’s saddest for Elsa! She has to be kept away from her little sister because of her magic and what she accidentally did to her! And she can never talk to Anna. What must that be like to be completely shut out from the world and to have to shut others out, too?
Now it’s coronation day!! I would think that most people would be excited for that, but Elsa sure does look sad. Why is that? I think that she actually isn’t as sad as she is scared. She’s really afraid of her powers and what could happen if she makes a mistake. All her life she’s been alone, but now hundreds of people are going to be in the palace. That would be pretty scary, too.
Alright, she’s freezing the scepter and the other thing she’s holding, she’s in front of a ton of people, and if anyone noticed that she was freezing those things, that would not be good! And you know, all her life she’s been told “Conceal it, don’t feel it, don’t let it show.” But I honestly think that wasn’t good for her to say. That just made her think about it more and made her even more scared!
Everyone knows about her power now, the entire kingdom is afraid, and she’s being called a monster. It definitely makes sense that she runs away.
Anna goes to find her sister, so she can apologize and bring her home. Now just look at Elsa’s face right here- she definitely wants to go back and have a normal life with her sister, but she can’t.
I’m sure it’s very hard for Elsa in this entire scene. She’s telling her sister to go back home and saying, “Yes, I’m alone, but I’m alone and free.” She’s trying to sound okay about it, but deep down we all know that she’s not. As Anna says, “Nobody wants to be alone.”
And once again, Elsa hits Anna with her powers, but this time in her heart.
You can see Elsa’s love for her sister really well in this picture. I wonder if she knows that she actually hit her heart? She doesn’t seem to know when Hans mentions it later. Hmm….
“How? What power do you have to stop this winter? To stop me?”
One of the saddest lines in the movie. The fact that she mentions herself needing to be stopped is heartbreaking. I still think that saying “Conceal it, don’t feel it, don’t let it show” had a lot to do with how she struggles with her powers now. She should never have been taught that
Now these two body guards are trying to destroy Elsa. Seriously, if they would’ve just looked closely at her face and listened to what she said “No, please!” and how she said it, they would’ve seen how sincere it was and that she was really a good person!!!
And to defend herself from them she’s using her powers and nearly killing them, but Hans rushes in and says, “Queen Elsa! Don’t be the monster they fear you are!” making Elsa realize what she was doing and that she really was starting to be a little monster. Just think if she had went on and nobody ever stopped her! She probably could’ve ended up an Evil Snow Queen! I mean if she kept being told she was a monster and people kept trying to kill her, that could have happened.
Now here’s a question, that one guard was going to shoot an arrow towards Elsa, but Hans stopped him. Why would he do that if he had already planned to kill her once he and Anna were married?
Okay, what could be more painful than hearing that your sister was dead because of you? The exact thing you had always tried to protect her from, but it still happened.
Then she gets up and sees her sister completely frozen. And it’s all because of her. That is literally one of the saddest things ever! And I think what’s really sad is that Elsa was told Anna was dead already, but then she sees her frozen right in front of her. So now she knows she really wasn’t dead yet, but then right away, she practically was again.
YAY!! Anna isn’t frozen anymore!!! Elsa brought her back 😀 And now she’s bringing back the kingdom, too!!
And finally, Elsa can hug her sister and be around her without worrying about freezing her ever again
I seriously LOVE food and I have a major sweet tooth. Something I love eating for breakfast is….
Toaster Strudels!!! My favorite flavor is strawberry, but I have tried the apple one which is good, but strawberry is still the best! Toaster Strudels are usually kind of expensive, so we don’t buy them a lot, but we found a 12 pack value size at WalMart for a good price
Now, I LOVE the icing!!! It seriously makes the Toaster Strudel so much better! Me and my brother both agree that no icing must go to waste! If some gets on our plate, we’ll get our finger and lick it clean 😛
If you haven’t tried Toaster Strudels, you need to! They are SOO GOOD!! 😀
Have you ever had a Toaster Strudel? What’s your favorite flavor?
One of my favorite things to collect are POP!s, have you ever heard of them? They are super chubby vinyl figures and they make them in all types of characters, so not just Disney 😉
I’m going to show you my POP! collection, as well as my mom’s and my brother’s one POP!
Here’s my little collection! I have 10 in all and I absolutely adore them!
I have here Vanellope from Wreck-It-Ralph, the mini Snow White and Grumpy set, and Jessie from Toy Story 2 and 3. Out of all the Wreck-It-Ralph POP!s Vanellope was my favorite, although they are all super cute! Now normally I never really liked the Disney Snow White, but ever since I started watching the TV show, Once Upon A Time, I have totally loved her!! So that’s why I just had to have that set And of course, who doesn’t love Jessie? She is so cute and I’ve always felt so bad for her. I’m not showing the back of the POP!s, but her braid is adorable!
Moving on I have Cinderella, Merida from Brave, and Maleficent from the new movie.
I had to have the Cinderella POP! because ever since I was little girl she has always been my favorite Disney Princess!
Merida is just so adorable! Her hair is amazing and I love that she is holding her bow and arrow. And my friend bought me the Maleficent POP! (Thanks again! ) I absolutely LOVE her! They did a great job with this one and since I am super obsessed with that movie, it only makes sense that I have her, right? 😀
Here I have Mary Poppins and Gandalf and Legolas, who are both from The Hobbit. I’m not actually a huge fan of Mary Poppins (although I like her even more now that I saw Saving Mr. Banks), but she was just so cute I knew I had to get her! Her hair is also adorable and I love her hat! And also, if you know me you’d know that I LOVE the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit Movies! I seriously adore my Gandalf and Legolas POP!s 😀
Here is my mom’s entire POP! collection (except for the mini Snow White and Grumpy set)! She has a few more than me, but that’s okay! From left to right are: Grumpy, The Evil Queen, Jack Sparrow- Oh, I mean Captain Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean, a mini Peter Pan, Russel and Carl from Up, Fix-it Felix, Wreck-It-Ralph, and King Candy (all from Wreck-It-Ralph), Elastigirl from the Incredibles, and last, but not least, Bilbo and Thorin Oakenshield from The Hobbit!
And here is my brother’s Thor POP! He’s a bobblehead which is pretty interesting, but also cool! My brother seriously needed Thor because we always say that he’s Thor, so it just made sense 😉
And one last photo of them all together! I forgot to take pictures of my dad’s Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket POP!s, so I’m a little sad about that, but oh well! In total we have 27 POP!s in my house!! I honestly can’t believe it!!
I hope you enjoyed looking at all of our POP!s 😀
Do you have any POP!s? Which one is your favorite?
