My Blog Is Moving!

Hello everyone….so I just wanted to let y’all know that my blog is moving to a different domain. Don’t worry–nothing’s gonna change except for the link will be instead of Wordpress. I’ve blogged with WordPress for about 6 months and I’ve blogged with Blogger before and I think I like it better and it’s easier to use for different stuff… of right now, I’m not deleting this blog but I won’t be posting on it anymore. I have a “Follow By Email” tab on my other blog and I’d love it if you continued this journey of life with me! :) I will try to most as much as possible about my adventure with Kansas! Thank you!! :)

Change // Part 2

kansas2015 has been a very different year and it just keeps getting “differenter.” Lol. I live in Oklahoma and so going to Kansas for 9 months is going to be quite a change!! Yes I’m only 15 years old. :P Kansas isn’t that far away and I’ll get a chance to come home quite often but it’s still kinda scary. ;) Next week my family is going camping and the week after that is all I have to pack, so if it’s quiet around here on my blog that’s why. I’ll try to post as much as possible that way y’all can know what’s going on in my life but I have no idea how it’s gonna be when school starts! Well I should go as I have a bunch of stuff to do-I just wanted to let y’all know what’s happening. :) 426791_467209283327718_2021712645_n

(P.S. Tomorrow isn’t gonna be my last day babysitting after all since school got moved back a week, whoop whoop!)

Right Now.

   So I have a lot of things coming up in my life but for now I’m just gonna talk about next week. :) Tomorrow evening, Saturday, my cousin and one of my best friends (Abigail) are gonna go to a town about 30 mins away from where I live to “dog/house sit.” We’ll be there until Wednesday evening or Thursday morning-not totally sure yet. We have to go to our jobs but I think it’s really cool being able to do this as we get to live on our own until Thursday or so! :D 10383040_1519543714968556_4418843192789525097_n^Me and Abigail

 Next Friday will be my last day babysitting for this summer!! :( I’m gonna miss my little guys sooo much, but I’ll see them next summer! Well that’s kinda it for now! :) Hope y’all have a fabulous day tomorrow!

My boys

   So I think I’ve mentioned in several posts about some of the little boys I babysit but I haven’t really talked that much about them (on my blog anyways :P). I’ve been babysitting for 2 years now and love it! I babysit 3 little boys. Ryker, the oldest boy I babysit has now a two month old sister, Sutton. So next summer I’ll babysit her as well.

Meet Ryker:

Ryker was the first one I ever started babysitting. He was 3 months old and now he’s 2  1/2! He’s so big!! :/IMG_9991 He’s hilariously smart and if you ask him how your cooking is he’ll reply with, “Not too bad, not too good; edible!” He use to be reallllyy laid back but after his sister was born he became a little more mischievous. ;) He just now came up to me with this book that he’s constantly asking me to read and he’s like,

“You read this to me?”

Me: “Ryker I’ve read that book over and over, how about you read it to me?”

Him: “How about not.” Then as if to see if he could bribe me he goes, “You’re nice!….”

…..Never a dull moment with him! IMG_1265

Meet Jax:

I started babysitting Jax when he was about 7-8 months old and he just turned 2! IMG_80901He’s the active one around here. He’s very “aggressively cuddly” and loves to ‘jabber’. He can’t really string any sentences together but he’ll find a word that he likes and repeat it for the next half hour! :P He adores my younger-older brother, Cody. He’s the “human trashcan” of the three. He’ll eat basically anything plus finish up the other boys’ snacks if they don’t want it. He loves tractors and cars. IMG_00881

Meet Jake:

I’ve just recently started babysitting Jake, but I’ve known him his whole life because he’s actually my first cousin! :) He turned 1 in February.IMG_5328 His curls are adorable. <3 He’s the quiet one of the bunch, although recently he’s started talking more! Ever since he’s been a baby he’s always sooo serious. He’s loosened up some now but he use to make you work for that smile. ;) He loves to be cuddled and his giggle is absolutely adorable! IMG_9923

I often make my guys “model” for me and they just LOVE it!….Not! :P 15 - 11(L-R: Jax, Me, Ryker, and Jake) 15 - 1(L-R: Cody holding Jax, DeVon holding Jake, Me holding Ryker) Snapshot 1 (7-2-2015 11-45 AM)I’m so thankful for these little fellas ;) <3

Interview: Cece // Designing

Hey y’all! So today I have something different. :) I interviewed the awesome Celia about her newly found designing business! Be sure to go check out her site and blog afterwards!

Hi there!
My name is Celia. I’m 15 years old. I love simplicity, obsessing over my many obsessions, being around awesome people, good music, good food, and good feelings.
I love designing beautiful blogs. I create every design with love and care, making it a perfect place to express yourself. And they are completely free! If you are in need of a design, or just want a single design element, check out my site!
If you want to get to know me further, head over to my blog!

1. What made you decide to start designing?

I started doing blog designs because I really enjoyed designing my own blog, and I was learning about codes and such. I just wanted something to keep my busy when I am bored! XD

2. How old were you when you first started?

I started blogging when I was ten years old, and I opened my design site in May of this year.

3. What would you describe your style as?

Simple, clean, minimal, cute, edgy, modern.

 4. Would you want to do this as a job?

Not really. I this is just something I like doing as a hobby.

5. Who are some of your favorite blog designers?

My favorite blog designer is Nicole Rose Designs. I got my first blog design from her, and her designs are amazing! She has also helped me out with codes, and answered all my blogging questions.

6. How do you design them?

When I design a blog, I first collect some images from Pinterest that have the colors that I am looking for. Then I gather the colors from the pictures, and pick out some fonts that fit the style. Then I begin the design!

7. About how long does an average blog take?

It depends. I can usually get the design it self done in a day, but the emailing back and forth usually takes longer.

Thank you so much Cece!! You have a great talent! Keep it up! If anyone else wants to be interviewed comment below or contact me. Have a great day!

My cousin: Cheyenne

   A couple weeks ago or so I took some pictures of my “little” cousin, Cheyenne. :) She’s a great little model but it was so bright that it was hard for her to open her eyes. IMG_9267 IMG_9263But we did manage to get some. :) IMG_9374 IMG_9458 IMG_9399 IMG_9378IMG_9320-2IMG_9296 And some in b&w: IMG_94581 IMG_93991 IMG_93811 She’s so cute! Thanks Cheyenne for letting me take pictures of you! ;)

*Random* but I updated my photography tab so now all kinds of my photography will be on there. :)

Hope y’all have a great day!

Random Haul // UOL #4

   Last Monday I went shopping with some of my girl cousins. We went to drop off their sister (there were 4 of us, counting me, the other 3 are sisters) at the airport as she’s a travel nurse and is currently residing in Barrow, Alaska. After that we went shopping. :) First of all we went to Hobby Lobby. I could live in that place. It’s probably my favorite store ever! IMG_94841As you can see I got some random stuff. Oh and I got this plaque:IMG_94761 Ironically, a very annoying thing happened in The Best Place On Earth. IMG_9510 Yeahhh that happened. Don’t ask.

After this heartbreaking incident, (I’m kidding) we went to Ross. Another great store. IMG_94891I got this “to-go” charger which is an amazing device, and this awesome notebook. IMG_94801It was a very fun day and I’m so thankful I have older cousins to do stuff with. ;)


On the not-so-bright side, as I said in the post before this, my grandpa passed away on July 8th. Since 3 of his 5 children don’t live here we had to go through my grandparents stuff right away and clear it all out. It’s really hard/weird seeing the house empty out! My 2 aunts and 1 uncle are going back home today so loose ends are still being tied up. Next week is going to feel really empty with a bunch of my cousins gone and getting back into our ‘routine’ again. Hopefully we’ll be able to go camping or something like that! :)

Wellllllll I should go…….do….something….*posts blog post and goes on Pinterest* haha. ;) I hope you have a great weekend!
