SJM Fandom Podcast-Week 4 (Best SJM Ships)

This is nearly 20 minutes long with my exhausted voice. Applause for anyone who makes it till the end xD Sorry I’m slightly unhinged.
Thank you Gusty, @aelin-and-feyre darling for coming up with these. I loved gushing about my babies SO. MUCH.
I realise I left out so much gushing, so many reasons why I love them. But you already know. ACOMAF is all you need to know.

This is the fic I was talking about, it’s on Ao3. Here it is.

Okay so I have a BUNCH of favorite fanarts for them.

First and foremost, this is my ultimate favorite one, by the brilliant @charliebowater

And this

This adorable art by @meabhd

And of COURSE, the following three by the amazing @merwild

Thank you to whoever listened to this again!! :* <3

A Ladies Weekend Away

A few months ago I attended Andrew’s best friend’s wedding, which was held at a gorgeous resort north of Toronto.  As soon as I arrived I remember telling Andrew, “my nieces would love this place,” and then a few months later I returned with my nieces, mom and sister, to put my theory to the test. 

The weather for our chosen weekend had looked dodgy-at-best all week, but despite the predicted rain and plummeting temperatures, we decided to go.  It was a bit of a whirlwind for me, as I took the red-eye plane from LA to Detroit Wednesday evening, slept in my own bed for maybe four hours Thursday morning (8am - 11ish), and then zoomed over the border to catch the train to Toronto.  

After a date night with Andrew, the next morning, bright n’ early(ish, as we first got brunch) we zoomed north to (the dark n’ stormy n’ beautiful) Severn Lodge. 

Luckily, bad weather doesn’t affect Lily’s mood and/or choice of clothing (she is going through a puffy dress (and mostly) pink phase) so we explored the grounds and planned out our activities. 

The next day we managed to sneak in a whole lot of activities between rain clouds; a paddleboat ride, canoe time (Lily was a champion and kept asking to go further out!), beach/sand-castle time, a swim to, and jump on the trampoline, and a dip in the pool. 

Lily apparently learnt to jump bellyflop into the pool and LOVED doing it. It looked so painful, but apparently it wasn’t.

Fun fact: I am weirdly really really good at canoeing. Like, I just naturally can control the paddle well enough to aim the canoe at a pin prick! Too bad it’s not really a useful talent. Ha

Around sunset the clouds started to part and we finally saw a little blue sky!

The next morning we woke up to sunny skies!  Unfortunately the weather was suddenly quite chilly (16C/60F), but that didn’t stop us from enjoying the day.

Beach time was plentiful ad fashionable (Can we please talk about Claire’s AMAZING little ruffled bathing suit down below? Because… !!!! )

And in the afternoon we headed out on the water on a gorgeous 1800s boat.  

The lodge itself dates back to the mid 1800’s where the Main Lodge building served as one of the headquarters for the Georgian Bay Lumber Company. It’s been added to over the years, and is today a great family resort (or wedding!) spot.  There are TONS of activities to keep kids busy, and it’s on a gorgeous west facing spot on Georgian Bay with gorgeous views. 

The rooms aren’t too fancy, but they’re nice enough, especially as you don’t spend too much time there. It was a little on the pricier side, but everything was included (all meals!) and I would highly recommend it as a weekend away. 

Isn’t this below room great? Claire was mesmerized by that fish! 

I am so thrilled we finally did this girls-trip weekend away, especially as we’ve been saying we would for years (even before Lily and Claire) and now that we’ve found a spot (and already booked next year!) it’s nice to know we’ll all have this special time together. 

So, this is pretty much how I feel right now. This stupid fucking small town I have love all my life has kind of broken my tiny heart.

I’m really tempted to make some improvements and just never ever leave this studio.

I’m tempted to run to the farthest dessert from my studio and never come back.

I’m tempted to just stay here and cry. This is the best week and the worst week.

100 Tula Para Kay Stella

My close friend and I decided to watch this movie as a treat to ourselves after this tiring and exhausting week.

I can’t explain how good the movie was but I assure you it is a must watch movie. I cried after watching it tbh. I don’t wanna spoil you so please come and watch it. UNTIL NOW I CAN’T MOVE ON.

Alsoooo, after the movie, we were shocked that Bella Padilla came to thank us. We chased her and OMG she waved at me. I was not able to take a nice picture of her because I was panicking that time. My feels for the movie were intensified after I saw her.

It was the best day this week and my efforts to survive this week paid off. GAHD I’LL RATE THIS MOVIE 10/10.

i managed to trade for a pet for my boy Charley and… im so happy… like
fuck man i love getting things for him this is the best day this week kicks ass im so happy

A new day, A new beginning. Start everyday off with a smile. At least it’s a good start. Today will be the best monday of the week.  wishing you a wonderful week.

Fandometrics is free this week!

It’s free every other week, too.

Not having the best week

  • (Celebrities) Two major plummets on the list this week: Katie McGrath falls nine to dead last while Lili Reinhart tumbles eight to No. 16.
  • (Movies) Alien: Covenant makes a seven spot slide to No. 14.
  • (Ships) Riverdale’s first season has ended, and seemingly so has fangirling over Bughead (Riverdale’s Betty and Jughead). Both will be back, this we’re sure of.
  • (Television) We’re sensing Sense8 fans have moved on from the anger/bargaining stage of grief and are now onto acceptance. Less talk about the show’s demise has it down ten spots to No. 14.

Daddy Space

✨Being woken up in the middle of the night because your little had a nightmare (or they can’t find their paci)
✨Knowing all of your littles stuffies by name
✨ Remembering every line to their favorite movies
✨ Stickers on everything you own
✨ The only bandaids you have are cartoon/movie related
✨ Your pantry is always stocked with their favorite little snacks/food
✨ At least ½ of your dishware consists of sippies, plates, and silverware that your little one begged for at the store
✨ Crayons are everywhere as well as toys
✨ Your fridge is covered in their colorings and drawings
✨ Having to hide makeup because you know no matter what your little will get into it
✨ Giggles followed by a long silence means having to check up on them immediately (and possibly bring along some cleaning supplies)
✨ Your bathroom is filled with bath supplies for them
✨ Playdates are always the best time of the week
✨ Walks in the park take hours because you can’t say no to them when they ask to play at the park
✨ Ordering their food for them at restaurants is basically a reflex

It’s not that I don’t love you it’s the sound of glass shattering and my mom drunkenly stumbling into my room face dripping crimson leaving the floor a vast sea of blood and it’s the nasty names falling from my father mouth and tears falling from my mothers eyes and the bruises littering her body and the blood, so much fucking blood.

It’s not that I don’t love you it’s the time my older sisters boyfriend broke up with her and she didn’t leave her room for six days because getting out of bed was just too much, she nearly went to the hospital on day six, I think he took her will to live with him when he left her.

It’s not that I don’t love you it’s the week my best friend spent at the mental hospital because her girlfriend fucked her ex. They think she was trying to end her life but I think she was trying to fill the hole in her heart with a bottle of prescription pills, I spent the next month watching her break her teeth on cheap liquor bottles and turning her body into a canvas with a twist, you see the paint was red and the canvas was her wrist.

It’s not that I don’t love you it’s that when the first boy I fell in love with told me he never loved me I chased two bottles of pills with some liquor and spent the night throwing up everything inside me but my love for him, a week later the “nice” lady at the mental hospital asked me why I wanted to die, I told her I didn’t want to die at all I just wanted to feel something other than the pain of him leaving.

It’s not that I don’t love you it’s that time I got a call from the ICU because my cousin was in a coma, the doctors told me they had to shock his heart to bring him back, when he was finally stable and could have visitors he told me she left him so he tied off his arm and shoved a needle into his veins because somehow that hurt less than the knife she shoved in his back when she left him.

It’s not that I don’t love you it’s that I do…
