Hello 2018

Looks like we missed 2017 on here. OOPS!

I had quite the strange and busy 2017. Some highlights were:

In March I started doing hot yoga. I got a month subscription and went everyday for two to three weeks until a tree fell on a house I was babysitting in. I got a few cuts from the debris so I couldn't attend yoga again that subscription time.

April came and I got a new job because being a nanny and a daycare helper doesn't help when you want friends over the age of nine. It took a while to find the right people that I connected to most but I have and they are amazingly fun to work with.

In May I got invisalign because I thought it was the right time to do it. Plus I am still on my parents insurance so got to use it while I can. So far I am enjoying it. It hurts sometimes when I put in new trays but I am liking the results and very happy I choose to do it. Not cheap by any means though but I couldn't bring myself to get normal braces.

June I started school again. I am doing well and enjoying it currently. I do tend to overwhelm my schedule but I maintained the grades so it all worked out.

In July my family took a vacation to Colorado, which if you have never been it is gorgeous! I did white water rafting, downhill mountain biking, local shopping, hiking, lots of eating, board and card games with my family, watched fireworks and had an overall thrilling time.

Not much happened before November when I went to the Live The Adventure Summit for Funforlouis's plane landing. It has been my first Youtuber event and I will say it was fantastic fun. I froze my butt off the entire time but that just meant so many good bonfires were made that weekend. Meeting all of the other people who are inspired and creative was the most fun.

And to finish off the year in December I had essentially armpit surgery. It is weird to explain but I had extra breast tissue under my arms in the pit zone and it has been there for as long as I can remember. It wasn't hurting me or anything but in March when I went to the doctors for the tree falling he recommended I should get it removed. BECAUSE if/when I ever get pregnant they could potentially fill with milk and it could look as though I have four boobs.......I know right! Well December came and my insurance was great and I had just finished classes so I had the surgery. It went smoothly and I spent Christmas and New Years as a T-Rex.

So that was my 2017 and here is to 2018!

Don't Miss Out

Shutterfly has some amazing deals right now!! This is not sponsored or anything I just bought stuff from there and got so many great things for discounted or free that I wanted to share!! Check out to see the discounts.

Why I went on Shutterfly is because I wanted to get a giant order of prints so I can scrapbook this December. When you sign up you get three free gifts plus you can add any of the other discounts or freebies to your order so I went a bit crazy. I got over three hundred prints, a calendar, a magnet, a Christmas card, address labels and free shipping!! A tad excessive I know, but the deals and it is just more present I can add to friends already gifts.

Thought you all should know!

Well That Was A Fail!!

A fail at least on here. I managed to post everyday on my youtube channel. Though it was a struggle near the end to find time. If anyone would like to see any of my thirty-one October videos then here is the link:

Now let us recap October:

 < Visited with distant relations in San Francisco for a very rainy breakfast. A child I am related to took this photo of me.

My Halloween costume. I went as REY!
My Halloween wreath I made.

These are all Pumpkins I either painted, ribboned, or poured wax on.


I entered a art contest themed "Classic Movie Monsters" so I decided to do the creature from the black lagoon!


Also made cupcakes with amazing coloring inside! Spookerific!

 I also visited a pumpkin patch which was heavenly because I love me some pumpkins!

I also went to Color Me Mine and painted pottery for the season! This is my Nightmare Before Christmas themed skull.

If you've ever been to Austin, Texas you might have heard of Franklin's BBQ. It is said to be the best BBQ around and if word of mouth isn't enough for you the line outside the door is a good indication of just how good the food really is. We arrived just after 7am and were probably behind thirty people and the line continued to grow after us. Franklin's doesn't open until 11am and they are only open until food is all sold (roughly 3pm). We waited four and a half hours to get the BBQ and it was worth the wait. While in line we played games like Adventure Time Card Wars and Sorry or chatted up the guy ahead of us who came to Franklin's straight from the airport.

Here is a snap from our first attempt and getting Franklin's BBQ the week before. We arrived around 9am and they told us that they weren't sure if there would be any but if there was we would be served at 3pm. We opted out and figured we would try again (with success) Though we went to another BBQ place called Salt Lick that was all you can eat BBQ. Not bad at all but not Franklin's.

I recommend that everyone have a tourist day where ever you visit. Do something you cannot do in any other city because you will never forget it. We explored all three accessible floors of the capitol building to beat the heat but also just to see all the history and craftsmanship put into that building.

 If you like art, color and/or making a mess then Baylor Street Art Wall is the place for you to visit. This is a free space and totally legal to vandalize so BYOSP! (bring your own spray paint). I also recommend a camera because the backdrop is amazing. The temporary life span of your artwork is sort of the best part so snap a picture because it most likely wont be there when you return. Enjoy!

Spend a day on the Colorado River and see the lovely Austin city skyline as you float on down. There are plenty of kayak, canoe and paddle board rental spots all along the river or bring your own and ship off. I recommend bringing sunscreen and a cooler filled with your preferred beverages. The weather is much cooler on the river than on land plus the perks of being able to see turtles everywhere makes it an ideal relaxed kind of day. If you get a one day fishing license from any local Walmart you can even do some fishing on the river. Tip: If on a kayak remember to tie down everything you don't want to lose in the river in case you accidentally capsize. Especially when fishing because you can yank the fishing rod to hard and flip over I have learned.

If you are looking to have a blast try shooting off some guns in a safe environment. We went to Eagle Peak Shooting Range and had a heck of a day. The gentlemen who run the place have got a tight ship and are very cautious and conscious of everything going on especially if it is unsafe. They have a handgun range and a rifle range neatly set up for use. We brought our own guns, ammo and safety equipment though they do have a little shop on the premises I'm not sure what it exactly carries.  Remember to follow all rules when you are handling guns and near other people shooting off guns.

 Those were some of the highlights from my trip to Austin, Texas! Hope y'all enjoyed!

Tie Dye Marble Nails

So messy! Attempting tie dye nails for the first time! Enjoy the spring colors swirled all around. I like how they turned out but I would probably do a few things different next time like different glue, one finger at a time (maybe), having a hair dryer handy to dry these bad boys and probably doing it outside so that I don't fear for my everything getting stained.

Timelapse of DIY Spring Wreath

Check out the previous post to see some of the thoughts behind making this wreath:
