Recent Photography

Hi! I am so sorry I have been so awful at blogging! I have a bunch of ideas, just not the time. Been busy with school, and babysitting lots, as well as photography jobs (lookout for a post about those).

Today I will be sharing some recent photos I have taken. 🙂

What did I check off my bucket list this summer?

Happy September everyone. Well, school has started up so summer is over. Time for an overview of what I accomplished on my bucket list for this summer!

============

Blog. Of course, I hope to blog much more this summer. 👩🏽‍💻

ISH. Sadly I barely blogged this summer until mid-August, but I think a little break was needed.

Naturally Curly. I would like my hair to be just my natural curls more often, and less straightening and curling. 

img_3259

YES. I wore my hair with natural curls almost every day. I think I only straightened my hair twice this summer! So I am quite proud. 

Sandals. I want to wear my sandals more and get a fun tan line. 🙂

img_3225

YES. I wore my sandals a lot. I have feet problems, and these shoes actually don’t make my feet hurt as quickly! Though…I have gotten a few blisters from walking in them too much. 😛 

Cold Treats. Eat lots of popsicles, ice cream, slushies, etc. 🍧🍦

YES. Didn’t get a ton, well I guess 1 slushie, 4 iced coffees, and a good amount of ice cream…so I guess I did complete this. 

See more sunrises. I am a night owl and like to sleep in. But I have found out that I do enjoy sunrises and being up earlier. 

NO. This is a sunset…I saw a lot of beautiful sunsets! 😛 But never woke up early enough to see any sunrises, expect a few at the very beginning of the summer… oops. 

Watermelon. Eat lots of yum, yum, yummy, watermelon. 🍉

40fc1a36-2ad0-4a17-b68c-edf18ab1b236

YES. I could have eaten a lot more, but I got a good amount. (This photo looks weird, but the sun was soo bright) 😛 

Laugh & smile. Laughter is so amazing, I hope to laugh a lot this summer. A simple friendly smile can change anyone’s day. 😀

Laughter is always 100% when hanging out with this goof. 

LaCroixBesides, water…this is the best refreshing beverage everr! 

YES. La Croix makes life better!

Tan. Get a nice tan but no lobster sunburn this summer, please. 

tan1

YES. I feel like I got pretty tan this summer, and no sunburn at all, yayy! 

Watch my favorite showI love Christopher Robin so much!! I have already watched it twice, and random parts of it many times. But I want to watch it all the way through again. ❤

YES. Ahh, this show never gets old. Such cuteness. 🥰

Driving. Get better at parking, city driving, night driving, and pass my driver’s license test!! 🚙

YES. Well, I have gotten better at driving…but not good enough at coming to complete stops at the stop signs to be a licensed driver. 🙄

YouTube. My bro and I might start a YouTube channel, we shall see. 

NO. We haven’t started one yet…but might at some point in 2019. 😀

Cousin time. Hang out with this goof. We are always talking, laughing, and being funny. Want to hang out with you lottss! ❤

img_1859

ISH. Only got to hang out 1 on 1 with her once, but got to see her a few other times. But want to hang out again soon! 💞

Youth Group & Bible study. Enjoy time, fellowship, and fun with the youth in my church, and grow closer to God. 

YES. Got to hang out with this sweet girl and be goofy at our church garage sale! 

Go barefoot. My cousin and I have started taking walks, barefooted, painful, and maybe slightly dangerous. But oh, so memorable, and fun. 😀 

img_3677

NO. Well a few times at the beginning of the summer, but then I was too focused on getting my sandal tan line to walk with barefooted, on walks. Though I did just walk around outside barefoot sometimes. 

Babysitting & Job. I hope that I will be able to do more babysitting, and possibly try to get a job, or start babysitting more full time. 👶🏼🧒🏼👧🏼

YES. Ha, crazy times. But also so fun, and I love the cuddles! 

Friends. Hang out with friends, I don’t have a ton of super close friends, but hopefully, I can change that this summer and strengthen the friendships I do have. 💞

ISH. Didn’t hang out with many friends besides Kyler and my cousins, but they are all dope so it chill. 😎

Kyler. Speaking of friends, Kyler who is one of my great friends was one of my best friends in my childhood. He lives overseas and is coming to the states for college, and he will be in CO for a few weeks. Can not wait to see him and make more memories like we did during our childhood summers. 🎊

YESS. Him, my siblings, and I got to hang out a lot as well as just him and I twice, so that was wonderful! Really miss him being in CO and getting to hang out. 

Move. Our house is under contract, we have to be moved out by the end of July, now we just need to find a house to move into. This will be a busy part of the summer, but exciting. 😀 🏡

YES. We have been living in our house for over a month now already, and it has been great!!

Finish this book. Yes, I still need to finish this book so I can finish that blog series and finish my review. As well as learn from the wisdom of Kristen and Bethany. 🙂

4273590906985369024_img_0905-1

NO. Oops! I feel bad about this, and I will really try to get it done before 2020. 

Mini Golf. It’s something we do every summer, usually with the youth group and our cousins. I am not too good at it, but I always have fun! 

Yes. Didn’t get to go with our cousin which was sad, but did with your youth group and that was a lot of fun! 

Enjoy the outdoors. The winter months here in CO are so long, and the warm summer months are very short, so I would like to get outdoors and enjoy the warmer days more. 

ISH. Not as much as I would have liked, but whenever I did it was fun. 

Photography. Yes, I want to, and know I will take lots of photos this summer! 📷

YES. I took lots and lots of photos on both my camera and phone. I also got to take someone’s engagement photos! ❤

Hike. This has to do with photography and getting outdoors. I am not a very athletic/outdoorsy human, but I do enjoy taking nature photography a lot, so that is good motivation to go on hikes. 🗻

Only went on one hike sadly. 🙃


 

Pretty glad about what I accomplished this summer on my bucket list. What did you do this summer?

A Fun Summer Evening

One evening this August we went over to Kyler’s grandparents for dinner and to just hangout. I took some pictures, so here you go. 🙂

 

Look at this beautiful rose! 🌹

Kyler taught us this cool game called Carrom. It was really fun…i am not too good at it though. 

Any guesses on what this is?! 

After dinner, Kyler, Silas, and I went on a like walk to a place Kyler had discovered the day before. 

Nice view of Pikes Peak. 🏔️

Ahh cotton candy clouds

Climb boys, climb…I will be there in a bit. 

Please dont die. Thanks. 

I love rocks like these, so neat!! 

r e d   b e r r i e s 

Can you spot the two birds? 🦉🐦

Funny story. We were walking along and Kyler said “Oh neat is that a hawk?” and I looked up and only saw the owl and I got all excited because I love owls, then I saw the hawk too and  said “that is an owl and a hawk!” and for the longest time Kyler could not see the owl. Then I texted my mom this picture and she said “morning dove?” she only saw the hawk and thought it was a morning dove. 😛 

Okay, this is really blurry sadly. But there is a story to this as well. 🙂

  This was in our old neighboorhood (before we moved into the country) and we used to walk on this street and I was remembering that there was this bench we used to stop at. Silas and I were arguing about where on the street it was…then I saw it, and I pretty sure I may have screamed out of excitement. 😛 No clue how I managed to get such a blurry picture or turn this into a whole paragraph, but oh well.


 

Have you ever played Carrom?

Adventures at Ikea and the Mall

 

On Monday, August 5th my family (excluding Ruby) and plus my friend Kyler went up to IKEA and an outdoor mall to do some shopping for our new house and shoes and just for fun.

IKEA here we comee!!

Testing out couches. 🛋️

My dad really enjoyed trying out many of the chairs.

tsk tsk, Kyler acting like a little child.

Leaving IKEA now, it was fairly successful. We didn’t get everything we had hoped for but it was still a lot of fun. Silas and I went down this while the other 3 went down the stairs…our “ride” was much more relaxing, even though we had to run to catch up with them afterward. 😛 

 

For dinner we went to the amazing Smashburger!

We all had to try on different hats at the Colorado store!  👒🧢  I have lived in CO my whole 17 years of life and have gone inside many CO stores, but alas still haven’t bought anything Colorado. 😦

Yes, we went into Bath & Body Works to wash our hands and tested other things. That was actually a lot of fun. 😀

Then we went into the Yankee Candle store and smelled a lot of interesting smells. 🕯️😝

Leaving the mall there was a beautiful sunset, man I love CO sunsets! 

Just look at that! So pretty. ❤


 

Have you ever gone to IKEA? Do you like to go into stores like Bath & Body Works or candle stores?

The 4th of July!

Hello

Happy Belated Independence Day! Let’s see what I did on July 4th. 🎆🇺🇸💕


First, I was cat-sitting, July 4th-9th. So I went and did that. (A post is coming soon with more cat photos.) 😻

Then we went and looked at a house that didn’t feel like the 4th of July. 😛 

Then we went to my uncles to hang out with family. This is my third(?) cousin, Sophie. She is such a cute happy baby!! 🥰

Took lots of goofy selfies with my awesome cousin, Amelia!! 

O L D   B A S E B A L L   G L O V E   A N D   B A T   I N   A N  O L D  B O X 

The little kids played in a pool, and then attacked me with water when I tried to take pictures. 

Oooh, look at my pretty cousins! ❤ 

Oh my goodness. This is me and Amelia’s favorite chicken that my uncle has!! She is so unique and awesome!! 💕 We thought that she was dead for months…but AFRO LIVES ONN!! 🎊

Oops, broken flipflop. Silas fixed it though! 😀 

The sunset was so pretty that night!! 

Sweet daddy and his daughter, Sophie. ❤

After it got dark we started doing some fireworks!! Also, a post with all firework photos coming soon. 🎆

After the awesome fireworks, we did some sparklers!! Might also do a post with sparkler photography too. 😛 


 

It was a fun day, took lots of photos, made fun memories, and laughed a lot! How was your 4th of July? 🎆🎇🍉

Summer Song 2019 Concert!

Heyy! I am so sorry that I have been so bad at posting anything besides the Music Listening posts… 😔

Anyways, I have a super fun post for y’all today! Two weeks ago my mom, dad, Silas and I went to a super fun concert called Summer Song. Let’s get to the pictures I took! 🎊

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


After we drove up to Denver we parked in a parking lot then walked over a scary bridge that went right over the highwayyy! It felt so weird when the cars would be coming right towards you so fast…ackk!

We had to wait in line to go through security for a long time but finally got in. Yay!

After we found our seats and were just chilling, a lady from Air1 came up and said there was an actor meet n greet! So my mom and I went to go check it out and we walked around the corner and I said “Ooh! It’s Social Club Misfits! Where is Silas?” So I quickly texted my dad and Silas and told them to come over right away! 😀

Ayye! Look at us! Just ignore my cheesy peace sign. 😛 Fern and Marty were so down to earth and fun!

After that, we looked over and saw that Zach Williams was at the WAY-FM booth! He is so very tall, and we are so very short…but still so neat that we got a picture with him. There was no line at all, so that was so awesome!!

After Zach Williams, we went to go find some food and take some sunset photos while waiting for them to set up the stage for…just keep reading to find out who. 😀

 I was mostly taking videos, since it was dark and harder to get a good photo. But it was so fun to see people ages 4-74 singing his new and old songs, having a blast! 🙂
 

 
 

I love concerts so much!! This was a really fun way to start off the summer, thanks, mom and dad!

Have you seen any of these singers before at a concert? 🎶

Howdy! How has your Tuesday been? A few weeks ago my family and I went to a nearby park, and I got to walk around and take some photos. I think I have shown photos of this park before, but oh well. 😛 That was probably like a year ago anyway.

I found a few last sunflowers. It was a little breezy so I had to hold it still, and balance on loose rocks!

Neat reflections of the trees on the lake.

Ruby and I were on the floating dock, she was a little nervous. 🙂

Good thing I am not a horse. 😛

DSCN8529-stampedIt’s a little dark, but cool old sunflowers.

It almost looks like those dead sunflowers are big trees growing on the opposite side of the lake.

I love reflections off the water, it’s so pretty. 💕
