June 2021, Recap!

Hello my dear blog readers! I hope this post finds you well, and in good spirits. And if not, it is my great hope that this post will bestow unto you joy and pleasure, and that you may leave happy and contented.

Ok, that was slightly weird, but hey, it’s true. (Even if it is worded in a slightly unique manner.) Lol!!πŸ˜‚

Anyway!! Am I the only one who is sitting here in shocked silence, because JUNE IS OVER?! I am currently speechless, but at least I can still type. We’re half way done with 2021! Crazy!! BUT EXCITING!!!

The month of June went very well (for the most part) for us. Save one aspect, which I will discuss at a later juncture. (I don’t know why I keep talking like this, LOL! Maybe it’s because I’ve been reading old books…? Ok, yeah probably. Deal with it.) 🀣

So here I am, at 5:25 in the afternoon, drinking ice tea and writing this blog post. πŸ˜€

~ Early in the month, we had some friends over for the day, which was fun! We played Apples to Apples, and… I won. XD (Not bragging, just stating the facts! LOL!!) We like to play that the cards you win are supposed to describe you… That can get pretty crazy, haha!!

What do y’all think? Do these words describe me??? 🀣

~I’ve been walking a lot lately. I try to get it 2 miles a day. (well sometimes…!) Listening to podcasts motivates me to actually do it. My favorite podcast to listen to is Revive our Hearts with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth. πŸ˜€

~We went to Colorado, for my Grandma’s 70th birthday party! That was a good trip, and a lot of fun! πŸ˜€

On the way we listening to Ranger Bill, Focus on the Family Radio Theatre (This Hiding Place), Lamplighters, and I listened to an audio book. (“The Lamplighter” It was really good!!)

Andy and Philip

A couple of books I bought at a thrift store. Look how THICK!!! Can’t wait to read them!!

Playing Clue with my siblings πŸ˜€

Some very random pictures…! lol!

March 2021 Bullet Journal Set Up

Standard

Hey everyone!

I’m sorry I’m a little late with this post. πŸ™‚ But I finally finished my March bullet journal spreads! Speaking of…. Can you guys even believe it’s March?!?!?!?!? I can’t. Wow. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

This month’s theme is…..

Music!!!

I’ve been wanting to use this theme for quite a while, and I’m finally doing it. XD I also decided to make my spreads fairly minimalistic, unlike what I usually do. And if I used color, it was a light purple or blue. πŸ™‚

The cover page! And a few random goals for this month. πŸ™‚

The calendar page. I really like this.

The word of the month page, and a gratitude log! My word of the month for March is Joy. πŸ™‚

Guys, I just want to say. That habit tracker took me SO. LONG. So long. Never again people, never again. Nevertheless, I love how it turned out!! And the mood tracker is also different from what I normally do. The different notes signify different moods, and I also tied a stress tracker in there! The higher the note, the more stressful the day was, and vice versa. I wonder if this would be playable at the end of the month…. That would be SO fun to “play my month”, lol!!

A tracker for my blog and youtube channel, and a page for the cooks I’m reading. I didn’t read a whole lot in February, but I’m hoping to read a lot more this month!!

Some random little trackers, that I didn’t feel like needed their own page.

And lastly, my weekly spreads. If you notice, I didn’t go through and write the date on the days. The reason for that is, sometimes I skip a day, and that littler box gets wasted, and after a while, all the little wasted spots add of to a lot. This way, I can just write in the day whenever I use it! (Thanks to my friend Emma for this little piece of ingenuity.) 😁 πŸ‘Œ

Wow, for being “minimalistic” these pages sure took a while, haha! I am quite pleased with the end result though. πŸ™‚ It’s different than what I normally do, and I like different. (In this case at least, haha!)

I hope these pages were inspiring to you, and that you enjoyed looking through them!

Y’all comment below, and tell me how your February was, and if you have any plans for March! My family is planning to visit my grandparent’s in Coahuila, Mexico, and after that, our grandparents from Colorado are coming to visit us. πŸ˜€ We’re very excited! πŸ˜‹

How you guys have a great day, AND month!!

Love,

February 2021 Recap!

February 2021 Recap!

Hey everyone!!

IT’S ALREADY ALMOST THE THIRD MONTH OF 2021!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wooow!!!!!!! I find that hard to believe… February just flew right by. It was a great month though! At least I think it was. I forget what even happened. Consequently, I’m just as excited as you to find out, LOL!

~Sometimes near the beginning of February, our family, plus our friend Susanna who was visiting us, had a hotdog and s’mores roast. T’was a lot of fun! We used healthy homemade marshmallows for the s’mores. πŸ˜„ πŸ˜‹

~Sometime around the same time, mom, Grace, Lizzie, Susanna and I went on a girl’s date kinda thing. We went out to eat, and to a thrift store! (you can see what I got at the thrift store HERE!) It was a BLAST!

~We went out to eat (AGAIN?!) with Susanna. It’s kinda a tradition to take our American friends to this restaurant when they visit, so we had no choice. We don’t usually go out to eat this much, lol!

Shortly aftwerwards, Susanna left, and we all missed her lots. ❀

~Siblings selfies! πŸ˜‚ πŸ‘Œ

~Doing a class with a couple of my siblings πŸ˜„

~A few days ago was the 5th anniversary of our ministry here in Mexico! Here is a picture of us last Sunday.

~Last Monday (the 22nd), Ruthie, Susy and I went to the Border with Dad to get mail, go shopping and stuff like that. πŸ™‚ It was a very fun trip!

πŸš™ πŸ›£ πŸ‘Œ πŸ€“πŸŒ… πŸ‡²πŸ‡½ β†’ πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ πŸ˜„ 😎 πŸŒ„ πŸ’Ÿ 🧒 πŸ˜‚

We got ice cream there! Which again, is not normal, and was a VERY special treat!!!! Dad and I got a Reeses Overload, and the girl’s split a Strawberry Cheesecake flavored one. SO DELICIOUS! 😍 πŸ’–

YUUUMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In February, I….

February Bullet Journal Setup

Standard
February Bullet Journal Setup

Hey everyone! πŸ˜€

IT’S FEBRUARY!!! Well, actually it’s not. Yet. TWO MORE DAYS! πŸ˜€ It’s hard to believe the first month of 2021 is over. Well, technically not, but practically!πŸ˜‚

Ok I’ll stop now, LOL.

This months Bujo theme is……

Red/Pink/Hearts!

SO unoriginal, I know. I’m sure you guys are shocked that I would even think of such a thing for February.

Ok, all sarcasm aside….. I know that this is a super unoriginal theme for February, and I was planning on doing something else at first. However, I just decided that I felt like doing hearts and everything, so I’m doin’ it. (Even though probably 53,490 people have probably already done it before!) πŸ˜‚ 😜

Ok, so here is the cover page, and a Bible verse that I thought fit well with the theme.

After that, I have my February calendar. I messed up on the edge of the second page, so I just decided to cut it off, and try a dutch door for the first time. πŸ™‚ I think it turned out pretty good.

On the other side of the dutch door, I have random trackers, and then a mood tracker.

My habit tracker… πŸ˜€ I used a similar design as I did last month, because it worked really well for me.

And I gratitude log, where I shall *attempt* to write down something I’m thankful for each day.

I made a Blog and Youtube tracker to track my posts, as well as a page to track the books I’m reading.

And lastly, here is the first of my weekly spread. Yes, I am very aware that I spelled “February” wrong on this page. And yes, it bothers me tremendously. Lol! XD

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Feel free to copy anything I do in you own journal. πŸ˜€

I’m really excited for February, and I hope y’all have a great month!!

January Bullet Journal Set Up

Standard

Hey guys! πŸ˜€

Can you believe we’re actually starting 2021? It’s crazy! We can only hope this year proves better better than the last… 😜 But let’s be optimistic! Let’s make 2021 the best year ever! πŸ˜€ Honestly, I’m very excited for this up-coming year. πŸ˜„

I did my planning together with a friend, and bujo buddy of mine, Emma, via video call! It was so much fun, and I enjoyed planning my bujo spreads so much more with her. πŸ˜€ (Bujo stand for bullet journal by the way, in case you didn’t know. You might be hearing me say it a lot from now on, LOL) 😜 😁

For my theme for January, I chose, after mush consideration, deliberation, AND contemplation… (drumroll please)….. Rainbow! Well, just all colors in general. I love all colors, and I and this will make for a bright, happy start to 2021. πŸ˜€

I started out with a quote page, and a monthly intro page. I love all the colors!!! 😍 I’m sort of second guesing all those splats of color I made, but I still like it. πŸ˜‰

This is my absolute favorite calendar page I’ve ever made! I love it! And it was way too much fun to put together….

On this page, I’ll write a little something about my day… each day. πŸ˜‰ This page turned out really cute – and yummy! xD πŸ˜‹

A handy dandy habit tracker, to keep track of some of the thing and I want to do each day.

It took me FOREVER to draw out all these crayons….πŸ˜‚And don’t worry, and the page will be a lot more colorful at the end when I fill them in. 😁

This will help me to keep track of when I post on my blog and youtube tracker. πŸ˜€

Some more random trackers, tracking random things. Randomly.

I’m very excited about this page! Basically I will print out some pictures of my favorite memories from January, and stick them in this mini envelope. This will be so much fun to look back on over the years. πŸ˜€

And lastly, here are my weekly spreads.

I love how January’s spreads turned out. They’re so bright and colorful and cheery, I can’t wait to use them! Another reason to look forward to 2021!!! XD

By the way, I’m thinking about doing a word of the month this up-coming year. Basically what I’ll do is pick a word each month that I want to focus on. For example it could be humility, patience, kindness, etc… Do you guys have any ideas for me? πŸ˜€

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and happy New Year!

Love,

Setting up My 2021 Bullet Journal

Standard

Hey everyone!

I started bullet journaling in June of this year. It’s something I’d seen around for years, and had always wanted to look into it more, and try it out, and when I finally did… I realized how much I loved it! It’s been so much fun, and now that I’ve bene doing it for awhile, I want to start posting pictures of my monthly spreads each month in 2021. (Although no promises that I won’t miss a month!) XD

Anyway, here is my 2021 set-up. πŸ˜€ It’s my first time doing yearly spreads, and I really enjoyed making them. πŸ˜€

Here is my new 2021 bullet journal. Well, it will probably only last me half of the year. πŸ˜‰ It’s really pretty though, and I love it!

I love how the intro page turned out.

Here I have a New Years quote, and a goal page. (Those aren’t all my goals by the way. I just haven’t written them out, lol!) πŸ˜‚

On this page, I will probably glue pictures of my favorite 2021 highlights here. I can’t wait to look back on this page at the end of the year.

This is another page I’m looking forward to seeing at the end of the year! It’ll be really neat to have a visual of what my year was like. And the second page is a savings goal tracker, I just haven’t written the title yet… XD

This birthday tracker will be really helpful!

And that’s all the pages I have done so far. I’m not sure if I’m going to do more later or not, but I’m leaving it at that for now. πŸ˜‰ Now to start on my January spreads! I’m not sure what theme I should do though. Do you have any ideas? πŸ˜€

Rosy ❀

Do you bullet journal? Are you excited for 2021? Do you have any theme ideas for January?
