as of late




hey guys :) how are you all doing? so today   i was trying to figure what to post that would be something i wanted to type up....you know what i mean? i was looking through my old posts on this blog, and literally like one year and four days ago, i did a post called "as of late" and i just gave a life update of sorts.  it was pretty fun....and a more creative way of doing a life-y post.  (which i love to do) so yeah....  .ugh i like never know what to write at the end of these paragraphs.  happy birthday people.  and merry christmas.  and happy new year while we're at it. 

 :


feeling:  anxious about tomorrow since we have choir practice again at school and last week, i had felt sick all day and then in choir i literally felt like i was going to faint.  my eyes started blacking out so i quickly whispered to this amazing girl next to me that i was feeling light headed and like i was going to pass out so she walked with me out of there....but SERIOUSLY YOU KNOW HOW EMBARRASSING THAT WAS?  i mean honestly, everyone was probably watching me.  whatever.  God holds tomorrow and i'm trusting that He's gonna pull me through the day.  because He will. 

reading: um, currently i'm reading this nice missionary story called Angels in the Night.   It's a fascinating story :)

baking:  THIS is the best question.  e.v.e.r  i think i have a baking addiction.  and also a take-five-million-pictures-and-overload-memory-card-with-food pictures addiction.  umm...okay, just let me think.  what did i bake recently? um, well, last i baked.  OH YES.  YOU GUYS I BAKED A LEGIT CAKE.  LIKE A DOUBLE LAYER FROSTED CAKE.  THIS IS A MILESTONE IN MY LIFE.  actually...not really a milestone...but you get my point.  so yes! i baked a cake for a birthday in my family, and it was pretty fun.  it was a chocolate chocolate cake...chocolate cake with whipped chocolate cream cheese frosting.  and THEN i made donuts with a donut pan i got. yes. #awesomething
here are some of those five million pics.  no but honestly guys, my memory card is too full to take any more images.  wah.












good stuff ♥


wishing:  to be frank, i don't know. snow maybe? this is turning out to one of the warmer decembers in a long time.  i was sort of wishing for a white christmas, but yeah well.  it'll probably end up blizzard in like march.  also for good memories with friends and enjoying this beautiful life.  and as always, to keep pressing on the upward way. 

anticipating:  well, all in all, Christmas and the holiday season.  i have several Christmas related programs coming up in the near future, and i'm literally sooo pumped.  also, baking Christmas cookies.  i honestly think i'm going to do a post just about all the things about Christmas, because, yeah....December's a great month.

preparing:  a magazine.  yeah. i know, it's crazy...but it's more like my crazy friend who came up with the idea.  there's this one friend of mine who's pretty awesome, and occasionally comes up with good ideas.  see, the reason i say occasionally is because today when we were on the road we were talking with a whole bunch of people in the van too, and she was saying how i'm going to lead out in the process of running and dancing in the center aisle in one of our upcoming Christmas programs.  *cough* but yeah, she came up with this idea that we should start our own magazine, and so me, being the person i am, took her up on that and i'm currently the editor. it's crazy cool, because we're getting stories and stuff from other people.  seriously! it's actually pretty fun and so cool to think that we're starting our OWN magazine. 

you know i think that was on my bucket list.  WOOT.

trusting:  God with my whole heart and soul.  and that's harder that it should be.  even when life is so full and busy and just crazy, i want to learn the art of giving my all to God and staying close to Him.

enjoying:  this beautiful thing called life.  life is so full of blessings from God -- laughter, friends, beauty, art, and love...it's so easy to miss it all.

regretting: all the time i waste on the weekends, and even on weekdays.  in the end, i want to make every minute count...but pinning pictures of jumping elephants is not getting me closer to that goal.  i want to live...you know?

singing: Christmas songs.  and more.

needing:  TO GET STUFF DONE.  ASAP.  like practice violin.  and finish this post.  and read the Bible more.

listening:  to this pretty song by some very VERY talented people.  seriously...GO LISTEN.  it has such happy vibes to it.

realizing:   God is always protecting me in every single way.  and that's awesome.

choosing:  happiness.  sure life may throw some plot twists at me, but i need to stay on top.  i'm choosing to remember that God is in control, so i can stay positive. 

playing:  i really should say violin...and i could if i would go practice.  like. soon.

remembering:  all the beautiful things last summer held.  i just finished making my summer memories album....and it was full of pictures from last summer.  such beautiful memories.

laughing:  at the small things.  because that's what counts.

thanking:    God for all He has blessed me with.  sometimes i just walk outside and inhale the beauty.  the earth is so pretty ♥ and all you guys for being such awesome little people.  (okay, maybe not little.  that's just an endearing term ^_^)

loving:  life. 



also.....CHRISTMASSSS ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥







stay safe + happy
autumn

  5. Your cake looks amazing--I just love how you decorated it :) Such a great post!

    Also, I know this is extremely off-topic, but I couldn't find an email on this blog to contact you by (I apologize if I have completely missed it!), and I just wanted to make sure you are still interested in continuing on as our Sunday spot on Seven Bloggers and Their Dolls in this coming year :) It's totally fine if you aren't interested in continuing on in this coming year, though :)

    I wish there was snow for December as well, I don't really like warm December's. I think I would rather have it be warm in like the dead of January.
