Alright. Who’s going with me? It looks like it’s gonna be great! Every trailer I see makes me want to go to the premier more and more!! If you wish to join me, I ask that you leave a photo of your “Please Take Me With You” face below. Or whatever picture you feel will get the point across. Just make sure it’s of your face. I leave you to your creativity.

Erasing My Line in the Sand
I don’t know about any of you, but for me, this week has been FLYING by. Normally it would be a welcome thing since I appreciate the weekend as much as the next girl, but right now it’s terrifying. Why? I’m auditioning for The Voice on Saturday July 30th and I am FREAKING OUT! I’ve never been one to do well in auditions and this just happens to be THE audition of a...

If you ever visit Tulsa, Oklahoma be sure to check out this place. BEST hibachi I’ve ever tasted!
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.– Mae West
They will be mine…as soon as I find a pair in my budget. These are $395.00! Um, no. I love me some shoes, but never for that much. If you’re a person with too much disposible income at your fingertips, then click on the link below and spend away. I, on the other head, will be stowing away loose change until I can scrounge together enough to buy a pair in the $50-$100 range. Oh life...

(This is the great thing about new groups wanting to promote their music; it’s usually available for very cheap or completely free.) So go forth my fellow tumblrs and attain some awesome, new music. You won’t regret it. Thank you Sara, for giving me the...
Be of good cheer. Do not think of today’s failures, but of the success...– Helen Keller

It's Not Goodbye; It's See You Later
This was the goodbye I’d been dreading for months. My dog, Taffy, (mentioned in my previous post) had to be put to sleep on Friday. I took her to the vet’s office, walked back into one of the exam rooms, watched the sodium barbitol enter her system and held her as she drifted away to a better place, telling her I loved her one last time as she died in my arms. My tears soaked her fur...
Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.– Dr. Seuss
You Don't Know Me...But You Want To
The name’s Ashley Ridgway. I’ve been a bit of a dreamer my whole life, and don’t see myself stopping any time soon. I love music, - maybe a little too much - writing (books and songs), reading, JOSH GROBAN, poetry, drawing, being outside, swinging, picnics, my dog Taffy, riding my bike, the Indianapolis Colts (…and Peyton Manning - hey!!), Harry Potter (yes, I said it),...
Every dreamer knows that it is entirely possible to be homesick for a place...– Judith Thurman
This is my first blog post; it will also be my shortest. Now that we have that out of the way…
