Excuse me? Who told you that you could comment using MY handle? I've just been offline for a while. Geez.- the REAL CRocksPS maybe I should just use my real first name from now on so nobody can copy me.
Def summer fruit! So many different yummy fruits out there! Delish!
i can wear flip flops, shorts, and show off nail polish on my toes :D
Getting to ride more often!The days are longer, and the weather is warmer and nicer for riding or trail riding!-NC
Definetley the great weather! It's easier to run in and ride in! Even if it does get hard sometimes ;)-XOXO Piper Please!
Friends and vacay! I have almost 0 free time for that during the school year!
My fave thing about summer is longer, nicer days to ride my horses, all the beautiful warm weather, and all of the fun summer clothes that come out! I also love summer, because, well no school, and all of the fruit that comes out! I have to say that cherries, grapes, and watermellon have to be my favorites as of right now!
Riding my new horse with friends and the warm weather.
Getting to hang out at the barn of course!! That, and being able to do whatever you want without having to worry about homework :D
The pool, def!
Pool. hahahaha if u have an instagram please follow lllblogger its the girl who does the blog www.laughlivelisten.blogspot.com
Everything! What's not to love about summer?(:
I KNOW RIGHT?!
Hey Laur!Miss you around the stable. So does Spirit- he's moping for Wisp. What a cutie! For those who don't know, Spirit's my Buskskin gelding, by the way. We should totes practice together when school starts again. Oh yeah- I love going to Camp Cheerio in the summer! Best camp ever!~Ella
Sorry, I meant Buckskin, not Buskskin! Lol.
My favorite thing about summer is hanging out with my best friend and playing in our pond!
My favorite thing about summer would be hanging out with my best friend (Caroline who commented above) and going to the pool!
There's a lot to like about summer - trail riding, horseback riding camp, the pool, wearing jean shorts and tank tops, and the summer food and fruit, and sleeping in <3 ~ Shannon
Ooh- iced tea, new clothes, no HW, camp, being with cousins, BBQ, and iced tea. My faves are camomile mango and raspberry. What about you? I know you love tea too.
I love going swimming in the pool. It makes me feel so alive!!!
Swimming, getting a tan and SUMMER CAMP!!!
I love gettingto spend more timewih friens and family and... NO SCHOOL!
Omg, def the pool. And going to mall with my friends for new clothes. and I definetly need new clothes cause i'm going into HIGH SCHOOl.Well, of course I still read Canterwood Crest!!!!! :)
Everyone that has an instagram, go follow lllblogger
Hey everybody!Sorry I've been MIA, pretty busy with summer.Recap:Toby's lease is up for the summer and its killing me.This other girl Sophie is ALL OVER HIM. He's practically MY HORSE and she just always is just so..ERRRG!!Also, I found out that Toby's owner, the one who's been off the grid for about FOREVER, is now going to be riding him more often.*DIES*And she also told me that she will NOT be renewing my lease in the fall*DIES 2x*So once again, I am horseless and crying.Anybody know a way to make it stop hurting so much?-NC and her broken heart </3
Hey guys- I just got back from vacay! OMG- NC- that is totally heartbreaking. I so feel for you. Well, when I couldn't ride for a while, I tried to distract myself. I think you should try to move on- but I know it's not easy.Try to busy yourself with another horse you love- even though it might not be as much as you love Toby- it will really help. When I'm down in the dumps, I also try to help someone else instead. It helps me to feel better and not think about MY problems- and to feel really good! Mostly I like visiting and volunteering at a therepeutic riding center. Maybe you could do something to help out your community or something. And don't forget- distract yourself with your friends!! Spending time with friends and family really helps. And don't forget- talking to someone super close helps.Hoping this helps!!-Nora
@Nora- hi! So glad you're back!@NC- I know how much you love Toby and I definitely feel for you. I have had the exact same problem. Just like Nora said, focus on some other horse. Try a lesson horse for a while and see if that horse is available for part-time lease, if you like the horse.Good luck!-CRocksP.S. Uh... anybody know what's gotten in to Drew, if that's really him? A robot has, as I remember, posted for him before....
Hey CRocks! And um, yeah, that's not really Drew. It's his clone robot- *shivers*. And that post WAS very very very weird and akward. Glad to be back!!-Nora
My fave thing is you Lauren! I love you soooooooo much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Do you want to go out when we both get back on campus?Please say yes! I am dying to feel you're lips on mine! Do you think we should try out french kissing?xoxo-Drew
Hey, text Laur that! Dont say that on a public blog:/
Okay 1)These Drew posts are getting a little...awkward.Just an opinion, just putting it out there, not trying to offend/hurt peoples feelings.@Nora & CRocksYeah, well, the situation goes a bit deeper from there. I just miss him so much, the worst part is he is ALWAYS going to be a few stalls down. ALWAYS going to be the first horse I want to ride when I come for a lesson. ALWAYS The one who is the background on my phone. It hurts and I know Im wallowing, but I find it harder to move on. I can't just stop riding or I will really go insane. An Insane NC is nothing you want on a day-to-day basis. Trust me.There are other horses that are nice or fun to ride (i.e: Spud, aka THE BEAST, he's GIGANTIC and fun but seriously the laziest horse EVER.) But Toby is just...so special. He took me to my 1st hunter pace, and won me my first official Blue Ribbon.And his owner is just SO NICE. She is seriously the sweetest person IN THE WORLD, and she broke it to me so nicely and gently, and was really apologetic. I can't hate the girl, she's just too awesome to hate!This is the fourth horse I have lost in my years of riding, one to illness, another to moving, another to fore closer and now to his own owner.*le sigh*I guess I just needed to get it out to people who understand. My mom and dad don't get it and my sister and brother don't either, and if I try to talk to someone at the stables about it my first answer before anything:"He's not your horse."-A wallowing NC
:) I really REALLY know that feeling. It reminds me of in CHOSEN, when none of Lauren's friends could really understand what she was going through. I'm not saying it won't be painful- but you need to give yourself some time.Just because Toby isn't yours doesn't mean you can't spend time with him. From the descriptions you put up about his owner, she's really nice. Maybe you could ask her to ride Toby every once in a while, or cool him out for her once in a while.Toby IS special and he sounds VERY awesome. Thing is, I realize, it's better to look down when you feel sad. What I mean by that is be happy- realize how much you have. And, plus, you aren't completely torn away from him are you? You need to play up the positives- cheer yourself up. No one else can do that for you. And, I'll say it again, it takes time.Hoping you feel totes better!-Nora
I agree! Just think about Olympic riders. They have to switch out their fave hoses all the time! Trust me, I get it. And at the stage of riding you're in right now, all you need is a horse to practice with, learn with and show with. But everything turns out the way it turns out. Like Nora said, things take time.Hope you find a solution!-CRocks (who is hopeful for a horse herself since her birthday is in 13 days....)
@CRocks HAPPY EARLY B-DAY!! Hope you get your b-day wish ;). Omigod I just read COMEBACK! Everybody HAS HAS to read it- it was sooo amaze! LOL I've already started counting down days until the next book's release. :)-Nora (who loves LT, @CRocks, @NorthernCascade- all of you guys!!)
I'm on the swim team, so probably hitting the beach! I also took up horseback riding 3 years ago and It's my new most favourite thing in the world!!!!
Just got comeback!!!!!! it's soooo amazing! Won't spill anything yet though ;) cuz i know its not technically out yet, my librarian had it ordered for me so i got it early!-Bells
I love hanging with the be sties *cough* Bri and Laur *cough* and tanning. And painting. And sketching. And riding and hanging and swimming and chilling and riding escalators in the mall. Ana stuff. :)Talk later. Bri, answer my texts. Jeremy, love ya babe. Laur, Im treasuring all the time I have with you this summer. <3 Love to y'allAna
Wow, Ana. MIA much? And yeah sorry my phone broke so we are going to have to use Skype message or emailing for a while. Anyway, my fave thing to do during summer is tan, hang with friends, and GO TO THE POOL.......just ask Ana. I am, like, ADDICTED to the pool. She literally has to drag me out after like 8 hours there, and I do it everrryyy singgglllee dayyyy. Cause I love the pool!!! You don't know how many times Laur and Ana have threatened to put me on My Strange Addiction or whatever for that. Anyway, I luv ya Laur and Ana!
Luv ya too, I wish i could post more... sorry I'm so MIA. I left the Yates summer work till the *very last minute* and thats pretty much all I've been doing for forever... The movie with Tay and the guys was great last night, we should do things like that more often! Ha, yes you are very obsessive about the pool. Like thats news....I've been living that all summer ;PLuv ya Bri and Laur,xx Ana
Hey everyone!!@AnaArtiste and @BrielleisaBeauty lol, you guys :) I just posted on my blog www.pc-fashion.blogspot.com check it out and comment, comment, comment!!!!!!!
:) Just found a seriously AMAZING line of shampoo- it's called Philosophy. They seriously have ridic scents- orange pineapple smoothie (one of my faves!), oeey gooey cookie, raspberry sorbert- and way more! Check it out at qvc.com. Go to beauty and then click on Philosophy. I'm seriously in love with it- you can also find it in Norstrom!-Nora
Ooh, totes have to try that!-CRocks
:) Totes x2. It's seriously funny how many amazing new products you can find just by scrolling through store websites. I totally love to shop online before actually going to the store and buying stuff. So excited for Halloween- believe it or not my b-day is a day before!! Ahh super excited!-Nora (who is super excited about Halloween- her fave holiday!)
Omigosh N! That's so cool! You and Lt can celebrate together :)My birthday is a week from today, and I can't wait! Oh, check out Aly and Bella's cool post.-CRocks
Oh, and who besides me got up at five yesterday to read Comeback! ADORE IT!!!!!!! I won't give away anything for those of you who haven't read it, but it's amaze. #longliveCCA-CRocks
@CRocks totally agree. COMEBACK is amazing! Oooh awesome news about your birthday in one week! I will be SURE to post the ENTIRE happy b-day song as a comment! :)-Nora
Haha thanks!!! I'm serious, Comeback is the coolest. I think Masquerade will have more drama, though. All we can do is wait and see!-CRocks who loves her LT blog friends!
That makes sense. Especially since it's the Masquerade Ball- and Lauren's just gotten pulled back into the show circuit. AND- how could I forget?- her birthday! Thank goodness MASQUERADE is being released in 1 month. I couldn't survive if it were longer!!-Nora who is very happy Masquerade is being released soon!
Hey Nora and CRocks!! So excited for your bdays and thank you for the compliment about my post :) I just posted a new post and I am trying to finish the line maybe even by today!!! (although whenever I say that it never happens sooooo..... :) anyway, I will keep you updated and I can NOT wait to read Comeback it sounds reaaallllllly good!
@Aly and Bella- Aly, I just looked at your blog and saw that your b-day is November 12!!!!! SOOOOOoooooo, will make sure to type a happy b-day message on that day!!!!!!!!Random fact, lol.-CRocks
And @NC that is sooooo hard for you!!! Im so sorry :( Something similar happened to me, but remember a while back you posted a post about being torn between leasing Toby and that other horse? Now at least you have your answer all sketched out for you :) just a happy thought. Best of luck!!!!
Oh thanks so much!Im sorry I didn't see it, it was wedged between Nora and CRock's posts lolAll the help is very much appreciated, but I doubt I will be leasing Chips. He's a bugger, that one lol.-NC
@Aly and Bella read your post. :) City Eye Candy is a super fun line name- I heart it! Looked up one of the nail polish brands in COMEBACK- Essie. I tried it out today- really cool and bright colors and (so far!) no chips! You can find it at any drugstore, or online at Nordstrom or in the store.-Nora
@Nora I love Essie! I have their Turquoise and Caicos polish, it's a superpretty teal color! They do chip after about four days, so I would use top coat. I actually found mine at Target! :)-CRocks
@CRocks thanks I'll put on a top coat! I found mine at Marsh- super cheap. I used a pretty yellow (I forget the polish name). We TOTALLY rock in the Olympics- we are creaming China!-Nora (who is super happy that the US is #1!)
My fave thing to do during summer is being able to ride horses with all my friends. I have a chestnut gelding named Clifford. He's the sweetest, I also ride a grey mare named Jessie. She's the easiest Arabian to ride.(though my friends would disagree.)
Hey guys. My BFF (her screen name is Lily) just made this awesome fashion site, Fashion Passion. You can find it at the web adress:www.fpco.webs.comIf you guys could visit and comment, it would mean a lot to her! Thanks,-Nora (Lily's BFF!)
Tell her I checked it out!!!! love it!!!!!-CRocks
I did. :) She says thanks and to make sure to comment!-Nora
I just commented!!!! Yay!!!!!-CRocks *smiles and hugs and sunshine*
IM BACK FROM THE DEAD!!!!!Ahem, sorry guys lol.So yeah, sorry I was on vaca at the beach and couldn't get access to a computer sooo yeah.The Toby situation still hurts, but its more of a dull ache. Big thanks to Nora and CRocks, you two are seriously my blogger bffls!!!I want Comeback SOOOO BADLY. But sadly, my mom says summer reading 1st, THEN pleasure reading. Curse you, summer homework!*shakes fist at teh sky dramatically*Happy (late I think) b-day to CRocks! Hope you got that horse you wanted lol.Miss you all, gotta go and unpack from teh shore (JUST got back ten minutes ago!)-NC
Hey NC! And your welcome, that's what blogger friends are for! :( Totally agree with you on summer homework- teachers go above and beyond to make sure we have no fun during the summer. Glad your back from vacay!-Nora
Hey! Man, you two, totes with ya- I had a short book to read, but we have a test on it on Monday! So ridiculous. And then we go and spent a third of our lives in a room letting teachers make our brains hurt. Ugh.And as for blogger friends- love you both!!! -a happy CRocks
Love you to!! Thankfully school doesn't start for me until next Wednesday, and I get to go school supply shopping tomorrow- it's probably the only fun part about school, besides getting new clothes.-Nora
Agreed!!! I had a half day for orientation yesterday, then a pool party. Totally worth it!!!! LOL-CRocks
Oh stinks for you guys!I start 5th of September! Oh noooo, yeah I got a week, and Im gonna be in Canada, Banff actually (NO idea why, dad booked it with no explaination lol. My mom wanted to go because of the scenery I think)-NC
That's so cool! I went to the Smoky Mountains this summer- hopefully heading to Florida in winter break! Three more days to @CRocks b-day- right?-Nora
Yep! And cool for both of your vacations! I went to summer camp in the Smokies for two weeks this summer, that was fun. And NC-omigosh! I've never been to Canada! That's super cool, you'll have to tell us all about it when you get back!<3,-CRocks
Thats really cool guys!! Im doing nothing Winter break lol. (at least we haven't planned that far ahead)That sounds so awesome! Yeah Canada should be cool especially since we're going on a 2 hour trail ride 1st day we get there!!! As in, ENTIRE family, including my reluctant brother and sister lol. Sadly, its WESTERN and western saddles are REALLLY uncomfortable D: Oh well... but yeah I won't be in touch as of Wednesday till about a week later b/c we're staying at a place that im sure doesn't have a computer and im laptopless.Later guys!-NC
That sounds awesome!! Yeah, I prefer English saddles to. Have fun!-Nora
Thanks N.*Sigh* yeah I miss my dressage saddle.It will be a ton of fun :)-NC
You guys are so right. English saddles are way comfier. -Sydney
I ride western and I love my western saddle. Its actually really comfy. I don't want to sound all rude or anything but western saddles are safer if a horse tries to buck you can grab the saddle horn and you won't fall off if u have a good grip. Sorry if that came off as rude to anyone I know we all ride different. I love your blog nora its awsome. I know how you feel about losing a horse you love northerncascade.
I <3 smoothies too! we used to have a slushie maker but my sister broke it. :(
Um, i know this is out of the blue but, i saw that the canterwood crest books are ending at "Home For Christmas" and I'm really sad. I know you won't respond or do this, but could you write a follow up book or two about where Sasha Silver and Co. Go on to be and the same for Lauren and Co. Idea you odds are wont do. I have read from the very beginning, and these are truly the best books i have aver had/read. I have read each book at least twice. I love them so much! Number one fan!!!! Team CCA!!! GREEN AND GOLD FOREVER!!!!!!
That is an awesome idea!
I POSTED MY LINE!!!!! Also, read the story on the website http://elosc.webs.com/ !!

HAHA i came on just after u posted that! Glad to see u back again @Crocks!, no ones been on for a while... Where is everyone??-bells
:) I've been quiet to- just on LT, though. Aaarrghh I started school & there's NO FREE TIME!!-Nora (HOORAY FOR LABOR DAY WEEKEND!!!)
Hey guys, that wasn't me, that was somebody pretending to be me. I knew that would happen sometime! Pay no attention to that post.-CRocks
Hold on, I'm gonna change my posting thing to my name-CRocks
Here I am! Yay!!!!-CRocks
Hey Nora, your blogs are not showing up! What's wrong???-CRocks
I actually shut them down-- there was a big problem with the website server & other people could post and stuff as me!! I actually co-host fashion passion (www.fpco.webs.com) with my BFF @Lily- and I'm still writing the books!!-Nora
You can actually find my books on fpco.webs.com to- it's changed to Fashion Passion & CCA Books. You can check it out there!!-Nora
Hey guys! I might start a blog, if it works it will be canterwoodcrestchat.wordpess.com
Yay!! I so can't wait to check it out! How's everyone? And where's N.C??-Nora
EXCUSE YOU? WHO SAID YOU COULD USE MY HANDLE??-the REAL Nora
Okay guys like CRocks I changed the posting thing to my name- so this is the real me!-the REAL Nora!
Well, WHAT IF MY NAME IS NORA??? YOU AREN'T THE ONLY NORA IN THE WORLD YOU KNOW! PLUS, I USED THE NAME FIRST!-the REAL Nora
Okay, um, excuse me, but I think I used it first. And, second, I'm not stupid. I thought that some people might just look and see, and realize that someone else already uses 'Nora' as their handle. And, honestly, no reason to like, freak out because I already changed the post name-thingy. So, me, the first Nora, has the name post thing. -the REAL Nora (who was first!)
Uuuugghhh sorry that post sounded mean- for some reason it didn't finish. So here's the rest:PS. So maybe can you change your handle so nobody confuses us? I would do it but I kind of already used it alot and put in the name/URL thing. So, if you could, thanks!! Oh, and sorry if you took that offensively, I just got annoyed and thought someone tried to pretend to be me. -Nora
Your funny. It's fine, I'd be mad if someone tried to copy me to. Sorry if i sounded mean to, I didn't try to be you lol.I'll just be anonymous for now.-the ANONYMOUS Nora
LOL OK so it's all set.-Nora
i was wondering how many of you have not read Comeback? i am still waiting for my library to get it. i hope it will be so. -M
I read Comeback the midnight of the release. You can get them automatically if you use iBooks on your iPad, Ipod, iPhone, basically any apple product. It's amazing- have fun reading!-Nora
i have a kindle fire but i am not allowed to buy any more books ): i think they got mad when i got Popular without asking. whops-M
i meant soon
Hey, CRocks, what happened to your blog?-Nora
BAM I'M BACK BABAH!Hey everybody :DNC here! Sorry I've been MIA, I've been in NY and haven't gotten the chance to blog.I miss all of you guys!I go back to school tomorrow (yay NOT) so yeaaaaaaaah. And sorry if I got people worrying lol I've been busy. I took care of my trainer's horses while she was away. It was really fun, and there was this colt named chocolate, he's three, and we raced each other along the fence line every day when my mom and I got there to feed.So much fun!
Glad your back!!:) That sounds like major fun.-Nora
No homework!!!!! Totes awesome!
Also, more time 2 ride!!!! :)
No homework, vacations, sleeping in late, and of course, freedom! :) I <3 summer, wish it lasted longer! :)
