Today we celebrated my 17th birthday!!! Technically my birthday isn’t until tomorrow, but since tomorrow is Sunday and were busy all day, we decided to celebrate the day before. (You won’t catch me complaining!) 😂 😜
For my birthday meal, I had chicken nuggets, fried potatoes, salad and garlic bread.
And for dessert….. We had homemade ice cream (which I made, by the way 😁) And guys. It tasted better than store bought ice cream! Like, seriously. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but it was amazing! 😋 😂
We had a bunch of toppings on top, such as chocolate sauce, strawberry sauce and caramel sauce (which I also made), blueberries, pecans and sprinkles. AND. The only thing that had any sugar was the sprinkles. 😀
It was all really good. It’s been 4 and a half hours, and I’m still full…! 😂
Thanks to my family for an awesome birthday!!!!! It was a blast!
And um… It’s kind, really hard to believe I’m 17….! 😂 (Well, as of tomorrow) 😉 Like how am I thought old?! 👵🏻 I don’t feel that old… Maybe that’s because I haven’t had my actual birthday yet! 🤣 Maybe I’ll wake up tomorrow feeling different. XD Lol!!
Well, I’m signing off for now! Hope y’all are having a great day, aaaaand… happy birthday to me. 😜 😂 😁 👋
Hey guys! I’m finally here with part 2 about our trip! The reason I haven’t done this sooner is because we went on yet another trip… So I guess maybe I’ll tell y’all about that in part 3? We’ll see! XD
But as for right now…. Here are some pictures of our time at family camp with the amazing Heritage Baptist Church! (Get ready, cause I have A LOT of pictures here!) XD
We got there a couple of hours early, so we took a hike in the surrounding area.
Family camp was AMAZING. We had a blast, and an awesome time of fun and fellowship. LOVE THESE PEOPLE! ❤ 😀 (And miss you guys!)
After family camp, we went to my friend, Kyra’s, house.
Well, I hope that was enough pictures for you guys! XD It was hard to go through and pick which ones to post, because unfortunately I could post all 800 of them. 😉 XD This entire trip was a BLAST, and I’m SO glad it was able to happen! ❤
P.S. Here is a video I made about family camp, where you can see tons for stuff we did! 😀 hope y’all enjoy!
Hey everyone! In September, our family went on a 3 week trip to Kansas, Colorado and Arizona. We had an amazing time! That’s also why I haven’t posted much at all for the last while… I hope to pick up on that, now that we’re home. 😀
Anyways, I want to share some of my favorite pictures from the trip! This post will have some pictures from Kansas, and the next post will have pictures from family camp in Arizona. 😀
On our first day, we drove all the way from Mexico to Kansas – almost 1,000 miles! It took us about 20 hours. XD We drove from 3:00 in the morning, to around 12:00 at night!
We spent an awesome 2 days with the Cook family in Kansas! (Thank you, Cooks, for your hospitality! It was a blast! )
Stay tuned for more pictures of the rest of the trip soon! 😀 😄
Hey everyone! Today I’m announcing the winner of the “Be Happy” magnet painting! I thought of putting all the names into a random name picker online but decided it would be funner to do it the “old fashioned” way. XD
Congratulations, Grandpa! I’ll be sending it to you with your other paintings! 😀
Hey guys! Quite a while back, I did a Rainbow Aesthetics post, where I made aesthetics for each color of the rainbow. I thought it would be fun to do the same thing again, but this time, with other colors! 😀 Hope you guys enjoy!
And that’s it! I really enjoyed putting these together! 😀 Which ones are your favorites? Mine are Teal and Lemon Yellow. 😄 💛
