flowers upon more flowers

hey guys :) how are you all doing lately? I've been doing pretty good, not gonna lie.  last week the weather was incredible.  all week it was warm and breezy and spring-y and beautiful.  just amazing.  but today it's sort of rainy and windy and not as warm, but, hey, Sundays are for relaxing and sitting around and baking chocolate cake.  yeah, I'm waiting for it to cool right now, so I can frost it with this amazing chocolate swiss meringue buttercream that I made, and GAH I CANNOT WAIT EEK. although it would be 10x more awesome if I could virtually share it with you guys.  :-P ah the sadness of life.
anyways, so last week I attended this flower show.  and it was pretty cool, I guess.  though, in all honesty, the best part was probably the caramel popcorn I bought.  I mean, popcorn? yes.  haha =) there were a TON of flowers in all different sorts of arrangements and arrays and it was pretty awe-striking.  but yeah, it was a fun experience and at least I got to travel.  I love traveling, and any chance of traveling is awesome.  So I took a ton of pictures while we were there, since one of my friends commanded me to take a whole bunch of pictures for her and, well, I figured I could post some of them on my blog too.  it's something interesting to post, right? =)







 
none of these pictures were edited, so they're a little bleh, i'll admit :-(
 
also guys, GUESS WHATTTTTTT??????????? omw I'm like freaking out so much.  at the end of this month I'm like literally attending this writers and artists conference.  LIKE WHAT.  WHAT IS HAPPENING WHAT ISLIFE AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.  okay so this is probably like no big deal for you guys, since you all are like pros at this, but, I mean, hey, this is little me, going to a big conference where I'm supposed to learn how to improve my writing skills, and I mean there's gonna be a lot of people I don't know, and wow I sound a lot more scared than I actually am.  okay, so i'm sort of nervous,  but I'M SO EXCITED TOO.  like, it's like a legit WRITER'S CONFERENCE GUYS.
*falls over*
AKFDJSKFNVIOSSKFKFSJ:JFMVIWFJNW.  yeah, so, that's happening.  have any of you guys ever been to anything like that? is there anything to expect?  idk....
it's exciting stuff though, guys.  it's in another state, so i'll have to like drive and drive and drive and drive and drive and probably drive some more to get there.   but it'll be worth it, I'm sure.  I'm hoping to get some inspiration for my current WIP, which is actually sort of going to be a gift for a family that I'm pretty close to.  so, fun stuff.  it's interesting; in my last post, I like wrote how there's really nothing I'm looking forward to in the near future, and then in a few day's time, I'm like going to a writer's conference.  wow.  God is so awesome.

anyways, have a wonderful week and keep smiling =)

  2. "chocolate swiss meringue buttercream" MY MOUTH IS WATERING SO MUCH OH MY GOSH.
    Those purple flowers look so pretty! So do the tulips <3 Tulips are my favorite flower, I think.
    I want to a similar thing a couple years ago (wow! It seems like just yesterday) and it was super fun. You really meet a ton of amazing people and make a ton of great connections.

  4. Here, our weather is the opposite: it has been all "blehhhhh," but lately, it's been sunny and quite nice and quaint. Flower festivals are fun! I'm going to visit the south east part of the country, and since my family is stopping by Disney World again, we'll be there in time for the International Flower and Garden Festival, which I'm excited for!

    AHHHHHHHHH you're actually going to a writing conference! I've been to plenty myself-- you have every right to freak out and fan girl, because they are SO worth it. I hope you have fun! <3

    xoxo Morning

  7. Hey, we had chocolate cake yesterday too! It was only store bought though, like where you buy the box and add stuff to it, but it was yummy. I mean, it was all chocolate, as I requested, because it was my bday. SO ANYWHO!

    1. awwww....yeah, that's a bummer. but, hey, NZ is a beautiful place so you could probably just like go outside, look at the mountains, and go write a best-seller or something. :)) xD but yeah....thank you so much!

  11. Yes, God is awesome. He's been doing amazing things in my life too - while I kind of look on and stare.

    It looks like the flower show was a fun day - and a great opportunity for taking photos. And a writers conference would be amazing; I hope you have a super time, and enjoy every minute! :)
