Black and White Wednesday - Chaos

the long road

Black and White Wednesday is run by Lisa over at
The Long Road to China.

This chaotic mess of trees and leaves and branches can be found at Hurd State Park in East Hampton, CT. I have to admit, I know almost nothing about this park, besides the fact that it covers almost 1000 acres along the CT river. So it's a pretty big park. *understatement of the year* I don't remember it AT ALL. I have one photo from my time there, and it's not even a good one. I have no idea what I was thinking, or what I did there.


I am entering a giveaway run by Amy over at Coffee Lovin Mom. She is giving away a copy of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland on DVD & Blu-Ray!

I freakin' love this movie! The costumes were simply divine, and I was enthralled with Wonderland. I truly loved the casting choices, especially Alan Rickman for the voice of "Blue Caterpillar" or Absalom, Helen Bonham-Carter as Red Queen, Anne Hathaway as White Queen, and Johnny Depp as Mad Hatter. Those are just my favorites, but there was brilliant acting on everyone's part.

The most important thing to take away from this movie is the lesson that Alice learned: If you believe you can do, you can do it. Nothing is impossible. And, it's fun to use your imagination once in awhile.

Six Impossible Things I Believe Before Breakfast:

1. I will get a second Master's degree.
2. I can easily lose 20 pounds in 6 weeks.
3. There WILL be world peace.
4. I can write a novel in 30 days.
5. I have the whole rest of my life to do everything I want to do.
6. My younger brother will live to be a little old man.

Also known as optimism.

Amy, if there's one thing you DON'T need to do, it's lose 20 pounds. Good grief, girl, you've got a great figure! What the heck is in 6 weeks that you need to torture yourself like that?!

I wish I could lose twenty pounds in six weeks! My sister just lost fifty pounds in less than four months though on Medifast. She has kept the weight off too. So I guess it can be done! I love that picture you chose. It would be amazing to live to see world peace!!
