Sunshine and Rainbows Tag🌞🌈

Hello everyone!! I haven’t done a blog tag in quite a while, so when my friend, Anna, tagged me for the Sunshine and Rainbows blog tag, I decided it was time I did one. πŸ˜€ So thanks for tagging me, Anna!! (Be sure to check out her lovely post HERE!) Let’s do this!!

The Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who tagged you
  • Share the badge and rules in your post
  • Include this blog tag statement: β€œThe sunshine & rainbows blog tag is an award created to show appreciation for bloggers who bring positivity and happiness into our lives!”

The Questions

  1. What are your favorite kinds of posts to write?

Well, I love writing monthly recaps each month! I also enjoy bullet journaling posts. However, I’m currently feeling very un-inspired with my blog, and I’m having a bit of a hard time coming up with new posts. So if you have any ideas for me, let me know in the comments, and I’d greatly appreciate it!!

2. What’s a post you’d love to write, but haven’t yet?

You know, I’m not sure… I’d love to write more devotional type blog posts, based on lessons I’ve learned. I’d also enjoy doing some art and craft tutorials and DIYs! What do y’all think?

3. In what ways do you enjoy helping other people?

Hmm… I love helping my siblings with school, as well as serving my family in other ways.

4. What (or who) inspires you?

Oh, LOTS of things….. Music inspires me, as does nature, rain, flowers, rainbows, books, movies, art, colors, and other pretty things…. As well as my friends and family, and God. And lots more. And chocolate. Lol! πŸ˜‚

5. What do you love to see on other people’s blogs?

I love seeing little bits of their life, pictures, art, DIYs, more art, tutorials, photography, and other fun things like that! πŸ˜€

My Nominees

(No pressure at all to do this, only if you want to!) πŸ˜‰

Kaley: You’re a great blogger/writer! I had lots of fun writing that story with you the other day!

Hattush: Girl, you’ve been a super good friend to me the past few years! I really love your blog and seeing pictures of your adorable sugar gliders. My favorite posts you do are the ones with life updates, and pictures of your family!

Reese: I like your travel posts. It’s super fun to see the pictures from other countries!

And that’s it for today, folks! I’m going to go work on my bullet journal set up for August (CRAZY!), so look out for that post sometimes in the near future!!

Have a great day!!

Love,

Rosy 🌻 ❀️

What kind of things inspire you? Do you have any post ideas for me? πŸ˜€

Visiting our Grandparents (April, 2021)

Standard

Hey everyone! I’m just popping in to tell you guys all about our trip to our grandparent’s house a couple of weeks ago. πŸ˜„ (I mentioned it briefly in THIS POST) πŸ™‚ I showed y’all a few pictures, but I have a bunch more here for you guys!

Warning: This may be a long post, so get ready! XD

My grandparent’s live in the mountains of Coahuila, Mexico, about a days drive from our house. We left early in the morning (around 4:00 am, I think). And somehow I was actually able to doze on and off a bit between 5 and 6, which was nice! At around 7:30, we stopped at a burrito stand for breakfast. (If you know me, you know that’s my favorite part of any trip – getting burritos from one of those burrito stands on the side of the road.) Ok, maybe not my FAVORITE, but I love it. Don’t worry, being with my grandparents was much better.πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚

Waiting for our burritos in Parral, Chihuahua 😁

After that, we settled down for our long journey, listening to the daring adventures of Ranger Bill along the way. (Ever since our friends, the Cooks, gave the audio drama to us, no trip has been complete without it!)πŸ˜‚

(Oh, and I forgot to mention, Lizzie brought her dog Jock. He actually did really well in the van.) πŸ™‚

And this is how we entertain ourselves in the car… LOL! Poor dog! 🀣

After that, everyone had to try on the sunglasses. 😎

Bekah and I worked in our bullet journals for a while, despite the constant bumping and jostling of the car. (Mexican highways are so much bumpier than in the States) XD We didn’t end up doing for too long though, so we wouldn’t end up ruining our journals forever. πŸ˜‚ But it was still fun!

Me. Taking a photo. In the gas station bathroom. Brilliant, I know! XD LOL.

After that, we spent the rest of our time reading, being weird and laughing too hard, singing to instrumental bluegrass hymns, being bored, and looking forward to getting there. πŸ˜€

I also found some neat photography opportunities at a couple of the gas stations. πŸ˜€ I really like how they turned out! πŸ˜€

My sister, Grace, tried taking a picture of me… The sun was so bright, it uh, didn’t exactly turn out…! 🀣 πŸ€“ β˜€οΈ So yeah, enjoy this super weird picture of me. πŸ˜‰

Well, after driving for most of the day, we finally arrived!

The mountains around their house are so pretty!!! ❀️ β›°

While there, my friend Carolina (Caro) came for a visit. It was so awesome to finally be here after being friends online for quite a while! πŸ˜€ We had a lot of fun together!!! πŸ’•

Caro and I!

We took LOTS of pictures. I’m only showing you a few of them, haha!

Love this one!!!

And of course, we had to take at least 1 silly picture. Or 35. But I’ll save your guy’s sanity, and only show you one. πŸ˜‰

Caro, Ruthie and I!
Abigail and I!

More fun pictures!

And more….!!! πŸ˜€ ❀

On Friday, we went to church, and my dad preached and led singing. πŸ˜„

After Church, we (SURPRISE) took even more pictures! Haha!

Caro and I! (well, our hands at least…!) Haha!

While we were there, my parent’s celebrated their 19th anniversary, and my Grandma, Aunt, Sisters and I set up a date night for them in the bedroom. πŸ˜€

I made this cards to put on their table. (And it was my first time using a real calligraphy pen, so that was super fun!) πŸ˜€

And yeah, I think that’s about it!

And, I just realized, I have no pictures with my grandpa, or grandpa! (How did that happen?!) 😲 Well, I love you very much Grandpa and Grandma, and I’m sorry I didn’t get pictures with you guys. To make up, I’ll just have to post this pictures from another 2019.

(I love you, Grandpa and Grandma!!) πŸ’–

Hope you guys enjoyed the pictures. It was an awesome, super fun trip! ❀

Love,

Rosy πŸ’– 🌻 🌈

A Blast From the Past!

Standard

As I am sitting down to write this blog post, I literally have no idea what to write about. I don’t know why, but for reason, I haven’t had much blogging inspiration, which I usually do. Hmmm… I’m going to try to think of something interesting. XD

*Is thinking*

*Crickets*

*10 minutes later*

Hey, I think I have an idea… A few days I found something I made years ago… Let me see if I can find it. πŸ˜‰

Ok, here it is! So, when I was twelve, I really wanted to start up an encouraging magazine for girls. So, I made the first issue of Future Homemakers! It was also the last, but… XD Yeah, I never did do anything with it. But it’s crazy fun looking back on what I did almost 4 years ago, lol!

So, here it is! (P.S. Please ignore all the millions of typos and awkward sentences, AND terrible graphic design skills, lol!)

Someday.

Lizzie and a friend’s dog.

We spent a looong time in the car… Like, 6 days worth of driving… Ugh! To pass the time, we listened to a lot of Jonathan Park, Brinkman Adventures, and sermons by Israel Wayne. πŸ™‚ So it wasn’t so bad. πŸ˜‰ WeΒ didΒ have a few really carsick kids though… XD

Y’all. I LOVED the South. It was sooo pretty, and I loved the people, the accent (lol!), the trees… And guys, the GREENNESS!!! πŸŒ³πŸŒ²πŸƒΒ It was so beautiful! I loved it all! Except for the ticks.Β Death to all ticks. Seriously, if it hadn’t been for the ticks, I probably would have moved there. Ok, maybe not quite… ;P XD

Well, I hope you enjoyed these pictures! Keep on the look out for a video about the trip, where you can see all you just saw, and lot’s more! πŸ™‚ And also the video about our visit with Amie. (Amie’s making that one.) I can’tΒ waitΒ to see it!! :D😁

Rainbow Aesthetics

Hey! You may be wondering how I’m posting this, while we’re on a trip far away from our computer… Well, the pure and simple truth is… this post is scheduled! πŸ˜€ I’m actually writing this on the Saturday, May 25. So, by the time you read this, it will be about a week and a half later than now. (That was a strange sentence… XD)

Anyway, I was inspired to this post by Hannah, who did a post like this recently. πŸ™‚ I really enjoyed making these aesthetics a lot! I made one for each color in the rainbow. πŸ™‚

Birthday, Baptism, and Border Trip. (And More!)

Standard

Hi everyone! I have a big long post for you today, so beware. πŸ˜‰ XD

Hey, I just realized I could call this post The Three B’s for short… XD πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜œ

Anyway…! πŸ™ƒ

We had a really busy and exciting two weeks during my media fast. One of the first things that happened was the birthday party of my friend, Karen. She turned 15. In Mexico, when a girl turns 15 she’s basically considered an adult and eligible for marriage. (Wow, that’s crazy isn’t it??? I can’t even imagine… XD) Anyway, she asked me to take pictures at the party for her. Which I did, and enjoyed doing! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

Here are a few of them… πŸ™‚

I LOVE this picture!!! πŸ˜€ ❀ The girl’s names are Maria and Rebekah.

My friend, Karen, and I. ❀

There was also a piΓ±ata for the kids, although the adults joined in some too. I did not get any good picture of that since it was night, but here’s something from my Dad’s phone… Terrible picture, but it’ll do… πŸ˜‰

20190427_210456


And, in other, really exciting news, we had our first baptism at the church we’re planting here in Mexico!! πŸ˜€ It was a man named Alejandro (Alexander), and it’s been so awesome to see God working in his, and his wife’s, life. Praise the Lord!!! He is so good.

Here’s a slideshow I put together with the pictures I took during church last Sunday, the Baptism, and the meal afterwards. (Not to mention the water fight that was bound to happen when you have kids and young adults standing around with nothing much else to do… XD ) It was a great time. πŸ˜€


The day before yesterday my Dad, Philip, Bekah and I took a trip up to the El Paso, Texas to get our mail, and get some supplies. This time we planned on making it there and back in one day! πŸ˜€ Usually we have to stay a night in a hotel.

We got up at 3:00 and left at 3:30 am. We drove for a few hours until we got to a small town to get breakfast. We got food for all four of us, for the equivalent of $3.50 US dollars. We had to laugh about how much food for us all would have costed in the States, and how different Mexico and the States are from eachother! XD

We reached the border by around… 9:00 am I think. We crossed uneventfully, and drove to El Paso which was nearby the border crossing. We couldn’t go to Costco yet, since it opens at ten, so we went to Goodwill, where we bought… Nothing! Then we went to Savers, where we bought… Nothing! XD 😦 ;P After that, we went to Walmart, and a few other places. We ate lunch at Costco. Well, actually we got lunch at Costco, brought it to the car and ate it there! πŸ˜‰ Then we did a few other things, including picking up our mail, then heading across the border again. We were home by 9:30 that night! We were so tired… XD

20190507_101927

Philip and I, while Dad and Bekah were in an auto parts store… And Dad left his phone. So… XD

20190507_102047


And, yeah… I think that was most of the big things that happened… At least that I can think of. πŸ˜‰

In other random news….

I read…

This book:

β¬‡οΈŽSummer of Suspense by C.R. Hedgcock. this book was really good! I thinkΒ  would rate it… 4 or 4 1/2 stars… πŸ˜‰ I would definitely recommend this one!

β¬‡οΈŽThis book: For One Moment by Christmas Carol Kauffman. guys. This book… 😫😭 Is so good… And sad… (Which is why I’m frowning in one of the pictures… ) Anyway, this is a great book. (One of the rare few that actually make me cry!) I would rate it 6 stars! 😁

Ohhhhh!!!!! There’s one thing IΒ haveΒ to tell you guys!!! First you have to guess…

What, you don’t like to guess?

Ok, fine. πŸ˜‰ XD

We’re going… SOUTH!!! YES! To Alabama and Georgia… I am so excited!!! It’s mainly for a family reunion, since my Mom has lots of family there. We’re also going to get to see some friends for the first time. (I’m especially excited to finally get to meet my friend, Amie, from Crazy A!!! πŸ˜€ ) Anyway, it’s still almost a month until we leave. I think we leave on the 3rd or 4th of June… Something like that. πŸ™‚ We are all waaay excited!!! πŸ˜€

Before I leave, here is a really good quote I found recently. It really made me think.
