May 14th

Mother’s Day. A day for my mom. Your mom. All of them. Somebody special that takes care of you & loves you. 

For Mother’s Day we had some of my aunts, uncles and cousins come over. We had a breakfast and just sat around and visited. 

Once everyone left our house we headed to pick up my sister at the airport. My sister I mentioned her in my List of Loves Part 1 blog lives in Germany & she is coming to visit for a few weeks! (Super excited about that).

My mom wanted to have Mother’s Day dinner at Olive Garden so we went there and ate. When we walked in it was crazy packed but we decided to go ahead and wait. We started off sitting on a bench outside but if you live in Texas you know how the heat gets /: 

We moved inside just to stand when some seats at the bar area came open so of course we had to sit (we made sure it was allowed) and then they asked if we were ready to order (so we skipped the wait time and cut infront of people) lol 

This is me & my sister

I wanted a cute pic of the breadsticks but my mom ate a piece + my root beer.since I got a new phone I wanted to try out portrait mode again so here’s a pic of my mom & sisters drink. (She’s 23 so it’s legal)

my mom had asked my dad to pick a flower for her when we were leaving the restaurant which I thought was adorable 

I hope everyone has an amazing day!!

May 3rd

Today was actually a really great day! First off any day you don’t have to get up for school at 7 is great. Since it’s the end of the year we’re testing so juniors and seniors don’t go to school until 11 (yay happy sid)

Me and a few of my friends went to IHOP this morning which was delicious!! Of course by then it was time for school so I was there for 3 hours and then I had a hair appointment. I love getting my hair done because it’s so nice and relaxing!! 

I finally got to wear this pair of jeans I got for a really good price from a place kinda like thrift shopping but not really (I know doesn’t make sense) these jeans are so comfy and cute and perfect for summer time!

 I ordered 2 pairs of new sandals from American Eagle! I only got one pair today and those are the sandals in my picture + my shirt I’m wearing is from shein. They have such cute clothes for reasonable prices I would 10/10 recommend! 

Happy Wednesday!

Happy Times

I think being happy is something everyone struggles with at some point, and maybe some more than others. I know I do but lately I’ve been finding ways to make the sad days good. 

I want to be somebody that’s genuinely a happy person, all the time. Being happy is cool. Being happy is great. It’s the best thing for you. 

The small things like when my plants grow just a little or seeing my dog when I come home from school to the big things like a new season of my show on Netflix (priorities, am I right?) more like spending times with friends and family make my day 100x better. 

I used to complain about a lot of things which is normal for every teenager but I appreciate everything this world has to offer me and I intend to cherish every minute I have.

Let’s end this with a quote :

β€’ most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be β€’

Enjoy your weekend πŸ™‚

Bullet Journal

I saw a video on YouTube about bullet journaling and thought it was something fun I could try. Of course I’m not the best at drawing and my handwriting isn’t anything special but it’s supposed to be whatever you want it to be!!

Here are some pages from my journal that don’t have personal info on them –

I’ll list some supplies I got below + they weren’t very expensive at all!

I got 2 pilot gel pins from Walmart just for regular writing!I’m pretty sure these are Pen+Gear fine point pens and I got these at Walmart 20 pack of Crayola SuperTips markers I got from CVS for $5 Washi Tape is from Walmart I think they were each like $3 but I’m not positive! 

They also have a lot of these products on amazon and different types of journals but for my first one I just decided to go with a plain lined one! 

I will definitely get more creative the more I do this but for now I like how it looks! I have a lot more pages decorated but they have personal information on them so I didn’t want to show that!

Check out some videos on YouTube about bullet journaling, it gives you a lot of amazing ideas!

Try New Things

Recently I have been trying to find new things to do since I have more time on my hands. Usually my time was spent at dance practice and then of course homework because that’s what high school/college is (tons of work). 

I don’t dance anymore so I have a few more free hours in my day. At first I wasn’t sure how to spend them since I didn’t really have a hobby. I decided to try new things like the following –

I have become more interested in taking photographs of different kinds of elements.

I definitely have gotten WAY better at planning ahead for my homework & job. I mean I even bought a planner so that’s great right?

Spending more time outside has been something I really enjoy. I turn my phone off or leave it inside and I just sit on our back porch with a snack and enjoy what nature has to offer. 

Walking my dog and spending more time with him playing is something I love also because who doesn’t love dogs.

And last but not least, I’ve been trying to be a better person for myself because self appreciation is important and being happy is the key to a great life.

Maybe if y’all are like me and are trying new things then you can get a few ideas from this post. Or if you have a hobby you’d like to share please let me know!!

– happy April 1st! 

National Puppy Day

Considering yesterday was national puppy day it only seems appropriate to make a short post about this cute pup of mine.

My friend Madison takes pictures of dogs and she came to my house to take pictures of Gus. He is very photogenic and playful and he loves to get tummy rubs (and loves to give kisses). He’s my first pet I’ve ever had (besides sad little fish) and I love him to death.

– here are a few of the finished pictures.


You’ll probably be able to see a few more on my Instagram sometime soon, so go check that out also!

Have a fantastic Friday!

California

Spring break of my sophomore year in high school (last year) we took a trip to LA with my school dance team. We went on a double deck tour bus and got to see some pretty amazing sites.

One thing I will never forget is my first time on a subway at night in LA. Let’s just say I was not a fan of that part at all, but other than that it was pretty great. We got to see the Hollywood Walk of Fame, dance at one of the Millenium Dance Complex, visit Universal Studios Hollywood and see the Santa Monica beach area & boardwalk.

All in all I think the trip was pretty amazing & I would love to go back on my own someday and see the rest of California.

– here are some pictures from my trip last year.Β 

I was about to post this and realized I forgot to mention two AMAZING things that happened.

1. We saw Mario Lopez and their crew filming at Universal for their Extra show!

2. We met Jordan Fisher (he’s been on Secret Life of an American Teenager, and some Disney shows + he sings)

– have a great Wednesday night everyone!
