I want to give a shout out to friends today. It hasn't been much fun for me the last couple of weeks - but at the same time it's been awesome. I was able to go to two weddings a couple weekends ago up in Chicago. One wedding was for a friend I've known for literally my entire life and I was one of her bridesmaids. It was such a beautiful day! Then the day after that a former college roommate of mine got married, and there were so many old friends from college that night. We had so much fun! The entire weekend was filled with dancing, reunions, love, and enjoying time together.
Day 11: What Character Do You Feel You Are The Most Like?
The character I feel like I am the most like is Ginny Weasley. Which is why I didn't mention her in my post about my favorite female character.
While I may not have red hair, a gaggle of brothers, I haven't had a million boyfriends, and would probably die playing Quidditch, I think we are still a lot alike.
Ginny can hold her on while hanging out with the guys. A lot of my friends are guys, and while I'm not really a "tom boy" (and neither is Ginny by the way), I can still hold my own. At least from what I can tell.
Ginny doesn't give up on people easily, and neither do I. Even when Harry shows absolutely no interest in her at all, she never truly gives up on him. She is still his friend, and holds a special place in her heart for him. I try not to give up on people either. They mess up, make mistakes, and sometimes ignore me completely. But I still have hope for them, and having to "give up" on someone is really hard for me. I don't know if this is a good or bad thing, but that's how I am.
Day 8: What Do You Think Would Be Your Favorite Lesson?
My initial thought was Defense Against the Dark Arts- but when I thought about it... I changed my mind. The idea of Defense Against the Dark arts is awesome. However, it's only awesome when Lupin is teaching, and part of me feels like I would get really scared during class.
The Love Drop team is at it again! Last month they gave over $9,200 worth of cash, goods and services to their recipient, the Stalnaker family, who had been going through a financially hard time due to the effects of the BP oil spill on the Louisiana economy. The family was in need of a car and the Love Drop team was able to surprise them with one, making it one of the most exciting Love Drops ever. You can watch how it all went down here. This month they rally behind the Aubins - a Michigan mother and her three children who are mourning the death of Keith, husband and father, after his lengthy battle with multiple health problems. Our goal is to raise at least $3,600 to pay the family's rent for three months, which will allow them to focus on what they need to during this time, without fear of losing their home. Additionally, since Keith was an organ donor, he leaves a powerful legacy and the Love Drop team hopes to raise awareness of organ donation this month to honor Keith's memory. Help us make this month special for the Aubins! Check out the youtube video about the family:

Day 3: Are there any film adaptations that have made you angry because they ignored important parts of the book?
Summer has officially started here in Cape. Well... maybe not officially since summer doesn't technically start until June 21st. HOWEVER - it has already hit 100, school is out, my summer wedding schedule is mapped out, we have done camp counselor training with the high school youth, and Vacation Bible School is only two weeks away.
