May Bullet Journal Set Up (+April Recap Part 2)

Standard
May Bullet Journal Set Up (+April Recap Part 2)

Hey everybody! I’m finally here with my May Bujo set up. πŸ˜€

This time I again tried to cut down on pages, even more than last time, to save pages and make my journal last longer. πŸ˜‰ I did the whole thing in only a few pages! Thus, the whole set up didn’t take me as long as usual to complete, and I like it that way. (Because I don’t have time to spend 5 years working on spreads for one month. Haha!) 🀣

May’s theme is…..

Butterflys!!!

I’ve been wanted to use this as a theme, well, ever since I bought some really pretty butterfly sticker on amazon. πŸ˜‚

And yeah, let’s just get into it!! πŸ˜€

The May cover page is similar to my April cover page. I just liked it so much, I had to do it again! I really love how it turned out – it looks so cheerful and spring-y!! πŸ’™ πŸ¦‹

Next up, are my goals for May, my word of the month (Servant), habit tracker, and mood tracker. I told you guys I was using less pages! Normally, each of those would take a whole page, haha!

Now we have maybe my favorite page (it’s tied with all the other pages), my book tracker, and a Line a Day. (Where I simply write a line about my day, each day.) πŸ˜€

A few more trackers (Social tracker, Bible Reading, and Goals and Rewards. And yes, I know that I haven’t finished the Goals and Rewards section. Still trying to think of rewards! Any ideas???)

After that, the only spread left to share is my daily spread. Super simple and functional. πŸ˜€

And that’s it for my bullet journal this month, folks! I hope you guys enjoyed!


And there’s just one more thing I wanted to add in. This has absolutely nothing to do with the topic of this post, but a few days ago when I posted my April Recap, I missed something very important! Some thing that was a lot of fun, and I don’t know how I ever could have ever missed it! Lol. XD

So I’m just going to call this section, April Recap, Part 2. πŸ˜‚

Around mid-April, our family went with another family up to the mountains to visit another family. (Ok sorry, that was a slightly confusing sentence! Just read it again, until you get it.) πŸ˜‰ LOL!

We went with the Garcia family, and we visited a man named Juan and his family, who lives a few hours away, far from civilization. (Well, not really far, but it feels far since it takes so long to get there because of the roads, lol!)

We got there for around lunch time, and we brought hot dogs for lunch. We used our special invention to cook them over the fire. (our special invention being chicken wire, which we lay about 20 hot dogs on top of, over the fire, to cook a bunch of them at once and save time!) XD If that didn’t make sense, see the photo below. I’m sorry, I’m bad at explaining things. LOL! πŸ˜‚

After lunch, we all decided do go on a hike. We drove a little ways to a good starting place, and then off we went!

The Mountains are so pretty!!

Selfie with my water bottle. Why? I don’t know. All I know, is that it was gone in like the next three strides, and I had no more water the rest of the way. LOL!

On the way, we came across this wall/cliff made of white sand. Everyone else probably thought, “oh, a wall of White sand! Cool, and bye.” but Lizzie and I thought, “Oh, a wall of white sand! LET’S CLIMB IT!” So we did.

(And I definitely did not rip my skirt twice in the process…. Don’t worry, it’s fixed now) πŸ˜‰ 🀣

We got stuck half way to the top, and couldn’t go any farther because there were no branches to hang on to. So we did the next logical thing, and slid all the way to the bottom (Filling our shoes with dirt) and into the tiny stream below (thereby filling them with water. THEREBY! We were muddy.) LOL! πŸ˜‚ 🀣

After walking 37 miles (or 1 1/2 I guess maybe), we reached our destination – a small (but large for the area) pool of water. πŸ˜€

After spending a little while there, talking and wading in the water *trying* to catch the fish, we headed back.

(And I most certainly was not so thirsty on the way back that I drank some of the stream water.) Hey, it was (mostly) clear!!! LOL! 🀣🀣🀣

When we got back to Juan’s house, we had a little bit of Bible reading and singing time which was great. πŸ˜€

Philip and Me

And there y’all have it, folks! πŸ˜€ It was a great time, and believe me, we got home tired, lol! XD I hope you guys enjoyed the photos, and I’ll see you in my next post! I hope everyone is having a great day. πŸ’•

I’m off to make some cheese! πŸ˜‚ πŸ§€

April 2021, Recap

Standard
April 2021, Recap

Hey everyone!

I’m so sorry about my unannounced break from blogging. XD I was super busy, we went on a trip, I was unmotivated for a while, and I just never found time to sit down and make a post. Between all those things, I’ve been gone for almost a month now… In fact, my last post was my March Recap. Oops!!

Anyway, back to the original purpose of this post…. IT’S MAY!!! (Well, as of tomorrow) πŸ˜‰ (Is anyone else as shocked as I am? Comment below) XD

April 2021

~ I got the books in the mail that I talked about in my Book Haul post! (Very quick background story: I bought the book Little Women on a used books website, and it ended up being a very revised kid’s version… So I bought it again!)

This time, it was the original, and IT’S SOOO THICK!!! I love it…. 😍 I’m really excited to read it. (I love thick books!!!)

And I also tagged on two Anne of Green Gables books, since I had a $5 coupon. I’m excited for those too! πŸ˜€

~ A couple pictures from Church.

~I planted a (very) small flower garden! I planted zinnias and sunflowers. I’m really excited for them to come up!!! πŸ˜€ I’ll probably post pictures when they bloom, but until then, you’ll have to content yourself with this beautiful picture of… dirt.

My poor flower bed looks rather forlorn at this point, but don’t worry, something will *probably* come up. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‚

~ I sewed a skirt and an apron! I really love how they turned out. πŸ˜„

~ Selfies with Lizzie XD (Believe me, I had to search through the pictures for a decent one that wasn’t too goofy) πŸ˜‚

And honestly, not a whole ton else happened (that I remember at least…..) XD

ONLY THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY MONTH!

(In case you thought I had no more pictures to show you…. Believe me, I have a lot.) However, I want to do a ful post on it later, so I’m going to *try* and choose only a few to show you for now. πŸ˜‰

~We went to my grandparent’s house this month, and we had a super fun time!! I had a lot of fun with my grandparents, and my aunt, and I also got to meet my uncle’s girlfriend, Carolina. πŸ˜€ I’d been friends with her online for a while, and it was so great to finally meet her! πŸ’–

And I have a TON more pictures, that will just have to wait till a later post. πŸ˜„ It was a great time though! πŸ˜€ ❀️

In April, I….

February 2021 Recap!

Standard
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!

A Visit with Friends

Hey everyone! πŸ˜€

Yesterday we went to visit some friends we haven’t seen since earlier this year. πŸ™‚ In fact, here’s a blog post I wrote about last time we visited them! We had a very good time with them. πŸ™‚

We brought and roasted hot dogs for lunch, which was fun!

Roasting Hot Dogs
The moms (and Gracie) talking.
A few of the little kids πŸ˜€

We got to ride horses! It was my first time really riding a horse. It was a blast!! (Yes, I woke up in the morning extremely sore, but… WORTH IT!) 😁 πŸ˜‚

We all enjoyed our time very much! πŸ˜€ And we got very sunburned! 😜 πŸ˜‚ (Again, worth it!) I’m very glad that we were able to go. πŸ™‚

Trip Recap, Part Two: Arizona Family Camp

Standard

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.

After family camp, we went to my friend, Kyra’s, house.

This pictures is proof that Kyra and I have the same brain…. We’re doing practically the same thing in every photo! XD
Doing gymnastics
The mom’s talking

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. πŸ˜‰ XD This entire trip was a BLAST, and I’m SO glad it was able to happen! ❀

~Rosy

P.S. Here is a video I made about family camp, where you can see tons for stuff we did! πŸ˜€ hope y’all enjoy!

(Also, here’s a video about our trip to Kansas as well!)

Trip Recap, Part One: Kansas

Standard

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. πŸ˜€

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. πŸ˜€


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!

2018 vs. 2020! (One of my favorite pictures from the trip!) πŸ˜€

We spent an awesome 2 days with the Cook family in Kansas! (Thank you, Cooks, for your hospitality! It was a blast! )
