Wow. My life has been very busy lately. I am so sorry i haven't blogged in a while! Well, I thought my grandparents were going to move on Friday. This whole process of buying their house has been long and grueling. The people keep saying well, you can't move today because of this and that. Since they don't have a house right now (crazy, right?) they are living with us. This is the fourth day so far. Tomorrow they will finally move. Long story short, blogging wasnot at the top of my list. My days have been full of games, games and more games to keep me sane. :) Oh, and did i mention that my great- grandmother is living with us too right now? That is what's making me go insane. My grandparents are sweet- i have no problem with them! :) Thanks for letting me vent. I thought i'd share a quick ADORABLE find:

Blythe Chef Apron and Hat Set; $14

Adorable, right? Oh how i love Blythe dolls! I don't have one of my own, but i sure would love one! :)

I am excited for her! :) It's always fun to have a new blog and get followers and comments, so why don't ya'll stop by her blog if you get a chance:

It's good to be back

HELLOOOOO!!! Did ya miss me? Probably not. Haha. It's so good to be back!!! :) It was a fun weekend, but it's always nice to be back home. Well- It was an even longer weekend than i expected. We packed up my grandparents almost completely on Friday, and after the funeral on Saturday (my great great aunt- wow! :)) I ended up spending the night at my grandparent's (the other set of grandparent's- Phillip and Janice) house- it was unexpected so i had to wear one of my grandma's night gowns for half the day! :) And then today we went to my other grandparent's house again to move them (Mary and Errin, okay this is getting confusing, i know.), we didn't get any packing done, we just relaxed. Now i'm laying in my bed, kinda glad this busy weekend is over. This was a long post, thanks for listening! :) Bye Bye!! (I hope i didn't bore you)

I can't blog, but i'll be back- i promise! :)

Hi guys! Just to let you know, i won't be blogging this weekend for various reasons. Friday- packing some relatives, Saturday- funeral (pretty distant relative), and Sunday- more packing. I might have time to fit in a post during the weekend to let you know how things are going though! :) It will be busy- that's for sure!! We are actually packing our grandparents- they are moving into a HUGE house. It's gonna be a wild ride- but a very fun one. :) Especially fun for me, because i don't have to buy the house or move into it, i just get to enjoy the excitement of seeing a new house every time we visit our grandparents! :) I will of course be back to blogging on Monday, sorry to break my goal so soon! :)

Bye!! :)

4 Things.....

Hi! I have been seeing people do this on blogs, and i have to do the latest trend, so i am going to do it too! :) Here are my 4 simple goals....

1. Eat a bit healthier

I am a person who HATES working out, so i thought i would just make it eating healthier. Lol. I would like to eat a little more fruit and a little less cookies. :)

2. Make more stuff

I want my shop to have more items in it, so that means i have to make more stuff- right? :)
I'm gonna make it my goal to make 2 things a day!

3. Learn to crochet

I have always wanted to crochet- so why not learn?

4. Blog

I am also making it my goal to blog twice a day. Hopefully, I'll start tomorrow. :)

Thank you for listening to my goals! :)

I told you so! :)

New Shop???

I'm thinking about opening another etsy shop. I just think it would be really fun. What do you guys think? What kind of things should i sell?
Here are some options:

Cabochon Jewelry Only

I'm open to suggestions! Comment!

First Try At Photography

Good Morning! I was a player of The Cookie Button's blogging theme swap. I will explain it to you. So, for example, Tracy blogs about fashion and Lucy blogs about crafting. If they are partners, Tracy would blog about crafting and Lucy would blog about fashion. Ok, so Lucy and Tracy are pretty generic names, but i was just trying to come up with something real fast. :) So i was paired with a "photography" blogger, and now i'm going to do a photography post! Here goes!

Isn't this one cool? It was taken in my back yard!

This is my favorite! Oh how i love my camera. :)

How did i do? :)

As ya'll all know, my mom has an ADORABLE home decor etsy shop. Me and my sister encouraged her to open her etsy shop and she has been doing GREAT! She has way more sales than me. Sometimes i get kinda jealous. :) She is so talented- i just had to show you her new creations!

Isn't this the coolest?! She makes all different numbers, but this is my favorite. :)

Hey Cupcake!

This post is WAY overdue (about a month!). Remember on my birthday post how i mentioned we went to a local cupcake place? It was SO fun. My whole family got SweetBerry Cupcakes (strawberry with strawberry icing). They were delicious as always! No matter which cupcake you get, it's delicious. And i know that because i think i have tried all of them! :) They even used to sell a vegan cupcake, but they no longer have it. :( If you are around Austin, Texas you HAVE to go there. Here is the website if you want to check it out:


I was going to post a picture, but i was having some troubles. It's a airstream trailer with a GIANT spinning cupcake on top. Its the cutest thing!!! You can also make the cupcakes whipper-snappers (whipped cream in the middle) for free. Yet another awesome thing! :) Thanks for letting me talk!!!
