My New Laptop (+ Some Random Memes to make this Post more Interesting)

Standard

Hey everyone! I’m super excited to be writing this blog post! Hopefully you didn’t read the title of this blog post, so it’ll be a surprise…. (Not likely, but one can always hope!)

Anywho. My parents gave me a laptop!!! I was SUPER surprised and excited!!!! I’ve been wanting to save up for a while…. But it was going to take me probably 1,307 years to save up the money for the one I wanted…! So I thought maybe I might be able to finally save up for one when I am… *calculates how old I will be in 1,307 years* 1,324 years old.

๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚

So yeah, I’m slightly (VERY) excited! I’ve been having a lot of fun designing and customized to fit my style, needs and wants. Designing the background was a blast! Here’s what I made.

As you can see, I designed the background with category, so that I can organize the apps and folders I have on my desktop screen. And of course, I made it “me” by making it light teal color, and adding some pretty flowers. ๐Ÿ˜€ Sometime, when I bored of this one, I can make pretty easily make another with a different theme. ๐Ÿ˜€

I also added a Bible verse in the upper left corner. (Colossians 3:23) “Whatever you do, do your work heartily as unto the Lord… It is the Lord whom you serve.” I put that there to remind me to make sure that everything I do on this laptop is honoring to God. ๐Ÿ˜€

So yeah, really love how that all turned out!!

Thank you so much, Mom and Dad!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ โค๏ธ

And now, time for some very random memes (To make this post longer, more interesting, and funnier…! ) ๐Ÿ˜‚ ENJOY!!


Oh, and one more thing real quick before I leave. I can’t decide what theme to do for my September set up…. Here are a few of my ideas. Which ones would you be most interested in seeing? (no promises to necessarily do any of them, but I likely will, and really want to hear what you think!!!) Please let me know in the comments!!!

A. Pastel Colors

B. Purple Lavender

C. Art (and art supplies)

And let me know if you have any other ideas you’d like to see!


Hope you guys enjoyed this very random post, laughed at the memes, and just maybe found the laptop design inspiring. ๐Ÿ˜

Have a great day!!!

Love,

Rosy ๐Ÿฆ‹ โค๏ธ

P.S. I’m currently sick and laying and bed…. But that’s ok, because it’s raining, and the thunder is sooo cool!! And, with my laptop, and can even write this blog post while I’m resting…! Haha! ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜

Anne of Green Gables Quiz

Standard
Anne of Green Gables Quiz

Hey everyone!!!

It’s time for another quiz! I thought for quite a while on what topic I should do this quiz on… I finally decided that an Anne of Green Gables quiz would be a lot of fun! Anne of Green Gables, while not my absolute favorite book in the world, is still an awesome book, and I do love it. Besides, it’s a story about a fellow red head. One of my own kind. How can I not like it?? LOL! ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜

All the questions in the quiz were taken from the book, and some of the answers may be found in the movie as well.

(For the record, the only movie I’ve seen, and the only one I WANT to see is the 1985 version with Megan Follows as Anne. The other versions…?? Ew nooo. No offense to anyone who likes the other versions… LOL!) But yeah, I love the movie just about as much as the book, which is rare, and a big compliment to the movie, haha! It was very well made, and very similar to the book. It’s just super good. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, without farther ado, here is the quiz! I hope y’all enjoy, and have fun with it. I’m excited to see your answers!!

Have a great day!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Love,

Rosy ๐Ÿ’– ๐ŸŒป

Life as a Missionary Kid in Mexico

Standard

Hey guys! Hattush from Daughter of the Light interviewed me for a guest post on her blog. ๐Ÿ˜€ She asked a lot of great questions, especially about our family’s life and ministry here in Mexico. ๐Ÿ™‚ Even though this was originally written for her blog, I thought I’d share it with you as well! ๐Ÿ˜€


 

  • Why did your family decide to go into missions?

 

Well, my momโ€™s parents were missionaries in Mexico when she was a girl, and my dad worked with my grandpa before he was married. My parents married in Mexico, and when I was 2 we moved to the States. My Dad wanted to get more training and church experience before going back to plant a church. And 4 and a half years ago, we did! ๐Ÿ™‚ย

Marr family, January 2019

 

  • Whatโ€™s one of the funniest things that happened to you in Mexico?

 

I honestly have no idea about this question.ย  Ok, one funny/embarrassing thing that happened to meโ€ฆ Once when we first moved here, I was buying tortillas and asked for โ€œflourโ€ tortillas, but instead of using the word for flour, I accidentally used the word for umโ€ฆ.. Urine. XD The lady was laughing and laughing, and I never knew until I told Dad about it!

 

 

  • What was the hardest to adjust to?

 

  1. The lack of Christian fellowship. This is something I really took for granted when we lived in the US.ย 
  2. Language! Moving to a country where you know almost nothing of the language was pretty rough. Almost 5 years later, Iโ€™m not as fluent as I would have hoped, but at least I can communicate some.ย 

 

 

  • Do you miss the US?

 

Yes, I do, very much. However, it has gotten easier as the years have gone by. Iโ€™m really learning to trust God with where He has placed me. I still miss my friends a lot, but the Lord is teaching me to be content.ย 

 

 

  • Whatโ€™s the hardest thing about being a missionary kid?

 

Maybe the fact that most of my relationships are online-based since most of my friends live in the US, or other parts of Mexico.ย 

Rosy (17)

 

  • What is the most rewarding?

 

Just being right where God has placed us. Also, I love seeing God working in other peopleโ€™s lives.ย 

 

 

  • What are your favorite things to do when you want to relax? ๐Ÿ˜›

 

Definitely doing art! Thereโ€™s almost never a time when I donโ€™t have some project or another going on! Next to that, it would be reading.

 

  • What is your favorite time of year?

 

Thatโ€™s a hard one. XD There are pros and cons to every time of year. I love the summer. However in the summer electricity and internet are out almost more than theyโ€™re on, because of the rainy season. In the winter, at least we have electricity, but itโ€™s SO cold, and I canโ€™t say I really love the cold. All in all, I guess Iโ€™d have to say Summer because I love rain and thunder, even with the lack of internet. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 

 

 

  • What is the climate like?

 

Well, I sort of touched on this in the last question. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Spring is actually the hottest time of year, though it rarely even hits 100 degrees which is super nice, especially after living in Phoenix, Arizona! (Where it gets to 120…) XD Summer is fun because it rains a lot and everything gets super green, which I totally love.ย  Fall is just fall, and then in Winter it gets SUPER cold (at least for us, after living in AZ). It snows, although not much, and one of the sad things about Winter is that I always have to wear shoesโ€ฆ XDย 

 

 

  • What is something you want to say to other missionary kids?

 

I know it may be hard, but donโ€™t get discouraged! It will get easier. When I accepted living here and surrendered to God, I was a lot happier with my life. Even though itโ€™s still hard sometimes, and I miss my friends, Iโ€™m happy.ย 

 

  • Whatโ€™s a fun fact that not many people know about you? ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

ย ย ย My sister Gracie and I are less than a year apart, and we are the same age for 12 days! ๐Ÿ˜€ย

Thanks for those awesome questions, Hattush! โค I really enjoyed answering them. (Love you!)

Hope you guys enjoyed reading a little bit about our life here, as missionaries in Mexico! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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!)
