Busy Weekends

(This is Sunday's posting. I had to write in advance because otherwise I won't get a chance to write at all tomorow.)

I don't have much to share today. I've been pretty busy actually.
I went to my friend's house and we baked Thunder cookies.
Those are cookies with oats, apple sauce, and chocolate chips.
They are delicious in case you were wondering.
We had a lovely time and played cards and Mario Party and Mario Cart.
And also yesterday was September 1st! Which is crazy.
Happy September!
To celebrate the kick off of the month my Mom and Gracie and I went shopping.
We also did face masks and got temporary tatoos with my little sisters.
the best part yet...
It's officially the beginning of Fall in my mind.
Thank you Starbucks for having my favorite Autumn treat out.
Woop woop!
To kick off the evening we got chinese food and watched So You Think You Can Dance.
Quite a lovely weekend, one of my favorites so far. :)
To end it off, I'm going to Busch Gardens as a pre labor day celebration.
I haven't been in forever, so I'm a bit excited! :D

Now, I'll leave this weekend post off with pretty pictures because I cannot leave out pictures in a post. Because I find too many pretty pictures and I have to share them.

  I don't know why but this part does indeed make me sort of tear up a bit inside. Say what you may about them being bad actors, but this part actually makes me feel sad for him.

"Do you remember, as a kid, the first time you went really fast on your bike, and it felt like you were flying, or the first time you got both wheels off the ground, and how you could feel, almost hear, your heart beating. It was like the first time you held her hand, or ran away from home and got lost.

Now, do you remember the last time you drove by a lake and wondered if there was a rope swing but never stopped, or the last time you looked at a smooth stone and imagined throwing it across the water but finished your conversation instead. When was the last time you considered a tree based on climb-ability? Ran across the grass barefoot, or decided to be a robber instead of a cop? Well, no one wants to be a cop anyways.

Let’s pretend again, and play a prank; we’ll defend a fort, or draw a map to plan an escape. All we have to do is take off our shoes and jump in, or walk outside and find an adventure."

-James Nord

I thought I'd leave you all with an inspiring quote.

(Sidenote: Because I've been so busy, I haven't been able to keep up with everyone's blogs lately. So, I apologize for that. As soon as I get free time, I will be looking and commenting more. I'm so thankful for all you that follow and all you that blog and inspire me. So thank you. And I promise I'll be back to reading and looking when days get less busy. :)

Have a great day!


  1. I love that quote! And I think I'll have to try a Pumpkin Spice latte. Never had one!

  2. Ah, loving those pictures you sure have a good taste :-)
