Easter Prep & Econ Assignments

Processed with VSCO with c1 presetI can’t believe tomorrow is Easter! We’re also officially a week away from my senior prom. I can’t believe how fast this year is going.

It was close to 80 degrees here in IN today so it was the perfect day to go out and get my Econ assignment done. My teacher gave us the option between 3 different 100 point assignments and I chose the one where I have to go around to different businesses and take a selfie with their logo or product. My best friend drove me to the mall since I can’t drive and it was so beautiful at the outdoor mall!

We spent tonight coloring Easter eggs and making some food for tomorrow’s Easter dinner with my grandpa!

I hope that everyone who celebrates Easter has a wonderful holiday with their families!

God bless

A Spontaneous Trip to the Beach

Yesterday afternoon my mom sends me a text saying “hey I’m considering taking you to the dunes tomorrow since it’s going to be nice out” Um yes please?!?!?! A day at the beach without my little siblings? That’s like a no brainer. So we planned the outing and brought my aunt along with us so it would be more fun. It was an amazing day for the beach! Sunny and beautiful, and the lake wasn’t too cold! It was perfect.

I climbed up one of the dunes to take pictures of the sand and the grass growing around it.

The view from that dune: breathtaking.

I always love the sound of the waves crashing against the shore…

So peaceful…



Today my best friend and I went to a local butterfly exhibit (we went 2 years ago, too!) and I loved it so much! I got so many great pictures!

In the botanical gardens there is also a desert area, as well as a tropical area to show different plants in the desert/tropical forests!

I am so glad to have done this all with my best friend. It was such a great time, and I got to see all the butterflies and interact with them and everything! It’s so cool being in an environment where you can actually have them land on you and stuff! So cool. Especially since they are cool species.


Today’s Whereabouts

Okay, so my dad had only 3 fish in this really big tank. We’ve all been trying to tell him “aye, you need new fish” but he never took us to go buy new ones.

WELL, today we all convinced him to go get them! So he and I, along with my 3 siblings, piled into the car to go get our fish (we each picked one out, meaning we got 5 NEW FISH!!


We may have also stopped by my mom’s work to see her.

We also went to Pet Smart to check out the “cool pets” including birds, guinea pigs, and snakes. Then we trekked over to Meijer and each picked out our wonderful fish.

Some Positivity For Your Saturday

Yesterday I made the random decision to delete my Tumblr blog (that I had for over a year + over 200 followers on) and make a newer one. A more positive one. I want to make a difference in someone’s day, but it’s hard to gain followers on Tumblr, especially when you don’t put yourself out there. I’m struggling immensely and I can’t help but regret deleting my wonderful blog with 250+ followers on it. Oh well. What’s done is done, and maybe I can start gaining some followers in the next week. It’s only been a day. If you are interested, here is the link: http://cheerfulglitz.tumblr.com/

So, without further ado, here are some awesome posts I found and thought I could share on here. They are super positive and made me smile!
