I Cut my Own Bangs!!!

I Cut my Own Bangs!!!

Hey guys!! ๐Ÿ˜€

A couple weeks ago, I really wanted something different with my hair…. So I decided to do something I’ve been wanting to do for a while – but have been kind of scared to. Cut my own bangs! Watch the video below, to see how it went! ๐Ÿ˜€

A Monday in the Life of Me

Hey guys! ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

So, I’ve been wanting to do this post for quite a while, but have never gotten around to it. But finally, here I am! Here is what a “normal” Monday looks like for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

6:50 AM: I wake up at but decide to stay in bed until my alarm clock goes off, which is at 7:00. When my watch starts beeping, I get up, brush my teeth, get dressed and read my Bible. ๐Ÿ™‚

When I get back, I put on beans for lunch. (They can often be quite dirty, so they take a lot of cleaning!!!) XD

By around 8:45 I’m ready to start school! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

First off, I want to thank everyone who bought a painting from me. Every single one of your purchases made me so happy, so THANK YOU so much!!! ๐Ÿ˜€


Yesterday we got home from a 5 days trip to Arizona (!!!) for our friend’s wedding. (We were only there two days – the rest was driving, lol.) XD The wedding was awesome, and it was also great to see friends. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

Happy New Year!

Standard

Wow. this year has flown by so crazy fast. But don’t we say that every year? To me, it seems a little bit cliche to say that, but it’s true, so I’m saying it anyway! Lol. XD

dreamstime_2020

2019 was one of the hardest years of my life. It was also one of the best. A lot of things happened to me this year – both good and bad. But through everything, I know God has been with us, helping us along through the trials, and I know He will continue to be with us in the year to come.

2020.

Remember when 2020 seemed so far away? I used to think I’d pretty much be an adult by then, lol!ย 

As for New Years Resolutions….. XD Here are some of my resolutions last year.

  1. Keep track of every single book I read.

I kinda quit counting in June… XD

2. Read at least 50 books.ย 

Ok, in June when I stopped counting, I had… 56. XD So, I read a lot more than that! ๐Ÿ˜€

3. Learn to be more content with where God has placed me.

I think the Lord has definitely been teaching me this!

4. Be more consistent with journaling.

For the first half of the year, yes. The second half… Not so much. XD

5. Try to get, and STAY more organized. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sometimes…..? Lol!

Also, today marks the end of the DECADE! (Wow!) XD

Here are some of the things I have been up to lately. ๐Ÿ™‚

Birthdays

We have three birthdays in November birthdays! Gracie turned 15 on the 10th, Philip turned 6 on the 11th, and I’m going to turn 16 on the 22nd! ๐Ÿ™‚

For Gracie’s birthday, I made her some healthy, homemade Oreos. (YUM.) Man, that was SO much fun, guys! I made several different flavors… Normal, peppermint, lemon, strawberry, chocolate, peanut butter, birthday cake, caramel…ย ๐Ÿ˜„ย They were super yummy (I barely managed not to eat all of them) and pretty, and so much fun to make!

Gracie and I get to be the same age for a few days! ๐Ÿ˜€

2019-11-12-7

I painted it on a piece of cardboard because I didn’t have any canvas… XD

2019-11-12-8

This one didn’t turn outย quiteย as I’d liked, mostly because I ran out of white after doing that light blue sky… But I still like it!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s very Fall-y. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Other Stuff

  • I finally got rid of my old school book collection… XD It took me two years collect all those… LOL!

Fall Photoshoot!

Standard

Hiya, people! ๐Ÿ˜‰

For the last while I have been trying to find a good day for a Fall photoshoot, but each day has been too cloudy and rainy… Yesterday afternoon it was finally clear enough to get some good pictures!

I started out with a few pictures taken at our house.

Our Trip to AZ!

Standard

Hi everyone! Yes, I am still alive over here… XD Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately. I guess I just realized that (believe it or not…) there are more important things in life than blogging. (Surprise!) Ok, well I guess I already knew that, but… Lol.ย Anyway, I still very much love blogging, so…! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜‰

Last week we traveled to Arizona to visit our friends and home church there. It was probably one of my favorite trips to AZ since we moved to Mexico! It was great to see all of our friends there again. ๐Ÿ™‚ I was so thankful for the Christian fellowship with other believers. โค

Life Update!

Standard

It’s been a while since I’ve done an update on our life, so I decided it was time for one. ๐Ÿ™‚ Quite a bit has happened the last several months. And a lot of good things, and a lot of hard things too. But God has been faithful through it all. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

So… One cool/happy thing going on right now, is that our friend, Maggie Cyr, came all the way from Arizona to stay with us for about a month! We are very much enjoying our time with her. ๐Ÿ™‚

The weather has been amazing where we live in Mexico. Lots of rain, clouds, thunder…. It’s all awesome! (Except for the fact the electricity pretty much always goes out every time it rains… Which is about every day during these months… XD )

I went on a nature walk with my camera the other day. ๐Ÿ™‚ Summer is amazing for photography. (I’m so sad it’s almost over. 4 more days!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ )

Watched The Widow’s Might with Maggie…

Sang a lot with Maggie, Gracie and Lizzie… ๐Ÿ˜€

And lots more… ๐Ÿ˜‰

oh, and one more thing that’s happening right now, is that we are finally replacing our bookshelf. It was FALLING. APART. Literally. Like, I can’t tell you how any time we nailed those shelves up when they fell a few times a week… XD So yeah, we are very happy (to say the least!) about the new ones. I won’t go into how hard it was to actually get the bookshelf standing upright because it was slightly too tall, and our ceiling is shorter in some spots, and higher in others… Lol! XD Oh, and we currently have books stacked all over the living room still… XD

2019-09-19 (9)

The new bookshelf. ๐Ÿ™‚ We haven’t finished putting the books back on the shelves, lol!

So yeah, that’s a bit of what’s been going on lately. ๐Ÿ™‚ (That was a lot of pictures, lol)

Little Brother Photoshoot

Standard

Hey guys! So, I know I haven’t done very many photography posts lately, but that’s because I honestly haven’t been taking very many pictures for a while. It’s because I’ve had… well, what you might call the photographers’ version of Writer’s Block. So Photographer’s Block I guess. XD um, is that a real thing? xD It should be.

Anyway, thankfully I’m getting over that now. So a few days ago I did a photoshoot of my adorable little brother James, and I love how it turned out! He is THE cutest, bestest, sweetest little bro anyone could ask for. โค โค

James, 2019, 3

Those eyes! โค

James, 2019, 8

Aww!

James, 2019, 15

Aaaaah, his blue eyes!!!!

Bonus picture:

So, during the photoshoot, I asked James to reach up into the apple tree, and pretend he was picking an apple. I did that, and Philip said, “Take a picture of me doing that!” So he reached up into the tree to pretend to pick an apple, but the apple accidentally came down in his hand. We weren’t technically supposed to pick any apple yet since they weren’t ripe, and this was his face. XD XD

IMG_2050

HAHA, isn’t that epic? XD

James and I had such fun with this photoshoot. He’s the best. โค So are all my siblings. ๐Ÿ˜‰ โค

Also, Gracie and I finally took the video for our Q&A. Sorry we took so long. More on that in the video. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I can’t wait to get that finished and edited so I can post it soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope you all are having a wonderful day!
