Fairy Pockets

My junior year of high school I was required to do a speech in my English class. So naturally I decided to talk about Fairies. Here is a video where I tell a story about that speech.

Naruto Date


     Inspired by the Dating Divas I decided to make a Naruto themed date night for all you nerds out there. I also made some printables! Feel free to use them for your own date night or a family night! 

     I gave my Fiance an invite a couple days before. I told him that was his only clue and didn't tell him anything else about it. 

     Here is the invite along with a tag that I will explain later. feel free to print it off an use it yourself. I put the date on the first blank and then the time on the second. 

On the day of the date I dressed up as Deidara (I know I am not wearing the right village headband but it was the only one I had and I wanted to wear it ^_^)
After I went to get AJ and found out he had decided to dress up a little on his own as well. 
I took him to the set table I had made up so we could eat ramen and rice while taking a "which Naruto character are you?" quiz. He got Naruto which fits him perfectly. He is totally spastic and hyper. I got Kiba. That doesn't really fit me. We always joke how I am a mix of Shikamaru and Sakura because of my lack of motivation and my feistiness haha. You can find the quiz here

Here are the labels I used along with some extras for you to label anything you want. 
After that we went into my room to where I had all the games for our date along with a cute little heart made out of my Naruto books just as a decoration. 

I also wrote "I love you! 'Cause that's my nindo! My ninja way!" on the white board wall as another decoration.

This is a picture of the games table:

Aj decided he wanted to play the shuriken game first. We each got five shuriken and went to opposite ends of the house (one upstairs and the other downstairs). We then sneaked around searching for each other. Who ever got hit first lost the round. We played a total of five rounds. I won the first, he won the middle two, and I won the last two. So in the end I won ^_^. It was a lot of fun. 
The shuriken where pretty easy to make. Aj actually had the idea to make them the week before and surprised me with these:

He took a cardboard box and cut out the shape of a shuriken. Then sketched it over and over to make more. So, I spiffed up the ones he made for the date. 

Out of the shuriken Aj made there was one with a hole in the middle so I used it to trace circles on all the others. I then cut out the circles with a pocket knife. 

After I took some black paint I had and put it on the shuriken to make them look more real. 

I decided to surprise Aj with the shuriken but I think it would be a fun part of the date to make them together as well so it is up to you. And if you don't feel like being crafty then there are plenty of plastic shuriken on ebay and on other websites as well. Here is a link to just one of the many options out there. 

After we played the shuriken game we colored some Naruto coloring pages. 

This is how they turned out. I colored Deidara and Aj colored Gara.

After Aj read a Naruto book while I set up "Naruto Shippuden The Movie." 

We then ended the date by watching the movie. I have to say it was a very fun day that I will always remember!

Christmas Outfits

Merry Christmas! I have always loved the holiday season. When I was young my mom got me my own tiny plastic tree to put in my room because I loved to decorate so much. I can't wait to get married and have my own apartment to decorate next year! This year since I do not have my own place and because I love fashion I have decided to wear a Christmas inspired outfit every day that I go out. Here are some pictures of a few to hopefully inspire you to decorate yourself for the season too.

Introduction To This Blog

     Who am I? First and foremost I'm a child of an amazing and loving God. I am also a fiance and a college student. My name is Renie and I would like to share with you the many things I have learned in my life. I will split this blog into categories. These categories will be for example:
Life Management (or in other words organization and health)
* (posts about God)
Just like my youtube (which you can find here): 
I will use asterisks (**) to surround the title of a post that is about God and my relationship with him. 

     You will get to know me through my posts in time but for now here are a few random things about me so I am not a complete stranger to you.

-I was an exchange student in Brazil my junior year of high school. 

-I am not fluent but can get by speaking in Portuguese(Oi, tudo bom?) or Spanish(Hola, que tal?). I am also on my second year of Russian(
привет, как дела?) and I speak a tiny, tiny bit of ASL. 

-I love astronomy

-I am a big Naruto fan, but I am not caught up on the episodes. I am to scarred to not be able to watch as many as I want when it gets intense so I am taking it slow ^_^

-I also enjoy Doctor Who

-And lastly (for now) I have just recently become obsessed with lolita fashion. 

     To end this post I am going to share some photos of me and my life so you can get to know me just a little bit better.

This is me: 

This is my fiance Andrew and I
We had fun painting each others faces that day. Oh and my shirt says "Fueled by Ramen."  
Out to dinner the night he asked me to marry him. 
And Later that night when I got the ring. 

     Enough pictures for now, but I'll share lots more in the future including pictures of my exchange and so, so many stories. Ta Ta for now.
