Starting to feel old

At least I’m sticking with this weekly blog so far. On Mondays, as best that I can.

So this past week, the younger of the two boys I used to nanny graduated from 8th grade. Totally crazy how fast people grow up! They’re getting so old. Those two boys are now in 9th and 10th grades.

It just makes me feel like time is just going so fast.

I remember that when I was younger, and thinking that I couldn’t wait till I grew up because being a grown up just seemed so much fun. But now that I am there with that group that I always wished that I was, I realize it isn’t just all fun, there is so much more that we need to worry about – money, etc… that we, as kids, don’t have to worry about.

Why is it that when you’re a kid, you just want to grow up? We want to grow up too fast these days, it seems. Time just goes so fast. that’s just something that I’ve been thinking about lately.

On other news, I had a photo shoot with a friend, I was the one getting the pics taken. For those of y’all who know me, this is huge, because I normally prefer to be behind the camera instead of in front of it, but I had a friend who I know come and take them. And it was actually pretty fun! :] I can’t wait to see the pictures she took! Now to wait and be patient. 😛

When I do get them, I’ll share one or two on here so y’all can see some of them.

Ok, other than that, I really don’t have much to share, so I’m going to sign out. Hope that you all are doing well.

See y’all next week! 🙂


Another Month of Photos – July (Plus Days 1, 2, 3, and 4)

Day 1 – Self Portrait (most recent one I have – taken last night)

Day 2 – Busy (On a hike with friends and my family)

Day 3 – Best Part of Your Day (fireworks last night with my sister and some friends)

Day 4 – Fun (One of the boys that I watch, playing on the rope in our back yard – just having fun, being a kid. 🙂 )

So here I go again! Another month of pictures – here we go!!! 😀

Also to anyone in the States, Happy 4th of July! 🙂

And to everyone else, hope that you’re having a great day! 😀

Thanks to Dez for giving me this list of ideas for this month! 😀

Sea Lions, Fairs, and General Insanity

So one of the exhibits at our County fair was a Sea Lion exhibit and you could get your picture taken with them, and of course I had to pay to get a picture with them…. because Sea Lions are freaking cute and adorable! ❤ So here I am, with my sister, with two of the sea lions… Totally worth it!! ❤

So, I went to the County Fair with the boys I spent the weeks with (I’m their nanny), their mom, and 3 of their friends this past Friday, and I actually had a good time – other than getting over heated. But it was a good time, none the less. 🙂

I am glad that I got the chance to go, even if it wasn’t for very long. Although I normally can’t handle places like that for long periods of time, so it was just fine with me. 🙂

Just got the day off work today. One of the boys I watch has Baseball camp, so I’d just have his brother, but their dad didn’t have to work today so he stayed home with his dad. So I got the day off. Nice to have the day off to recover from this past weekend.

This past weekend was a freaking blast! I ended up managing to meet up with a group of friends and go to the drive in movies down in Sacramento on Saturday night, and I stayed with a friend down near school after the movies – we saw MIB 3 (totally recommend it!) and Avengers (Thor is just as amazingly good looking the second time through as he was the first time. Haha!). We had a blast! I’m so glad that I managed to make it work out!

I forgot how awesome those people are to hang out with, they very giggle worthy! 🙂

So, anyways, nothing more planned for this week, other than work, and going back down to spend the weekend with a friend from school this coming weekend. So that’ll be a blast! Looking forward to it definitely! Can’t wait to see what she’s got in store for me!

Sorry I don’t update as much, now that I’m taking a break from the picture a day challenge I don’t get on all that much.

If any of you have one of those picture challenges sitting around and wish to share it with me, feel free to send it to me in comments.

I’d be totally willing to do another picture challenge! 😀

I just have to find another one.

So I hope that you all are doing alright!

See y’all around and have a great summer (or Winter)!


Day 24 – May

23. Smile

Just another collage of pics – my boys I nanny for (from last summer), my brother (from last summer) and then me (from about 2 years ago and then basically a year ago – in a few days). 🙂

All old pictures, as I don’t usually take pictures of people. Although I can’t claim the picture of my brother, because mum actually took that one, but I love it so I included it – he’s actually graduating high school on Saturday.

Crazy crazy! But a huge congrats to you bro!! ❤ Love you!

Day 11 – May

11. Something Fun

MY NEW NOOK COLOR (that I got today for free from a friend)!
-squee- I’m in love with it already! It’s amazing. The book that I’ve got open on it at the moment is Frostbite. Now that I’ve got a bigger screen that doesn’t require me to turn on my computer but at the same time doesn’t mean that I have to read on my iPod I’m so re-reading this series!

Ugh… The Joys of Finals and Procrastination

Well, finals time is upon me here – and I have absolutely no motivation to do my final studying.. getting tired of school and I’m SO ready for a break! Even if it means that I’ll be working – because work is different, where as it feels like school is the same – despite learning new things. If that makes any sense at all?

I’m sitting up at Starbucks – I’ve been up here for about an hour and a half now, sitting here at my table with my homework out, and I still can’t seem to find the inspiration to do my work.. -sigh- I hope that I can find it as I do have some things that I need to get in by midnight tonight…. -glares at her Anthropology blog-

Just so tired of doing schoolwork. >.<

Anyways, I’m really just procrastinating. But I do have to say that I’m feeling rather proud of myself for the fact that I’ve managed to get a picture (or collage of pics as I have problems picking just one) for the last 6 days. Here is to hoping that I can do it every day till the end of the month! I’m having fun with these Picture a Day challenges! 😀

Anyways, I probably try to get some of my work done, so I don’t feel bad about procrastinating.

I do have to say, again, that I did have a pretty good weekend, even if I have put off doing my work. Haha! I went over to a friends and we had a blast!

Ok, really going now!

Tata for now!

Day 16 and Second Chance Prom

Day 16 – Texture

Taken awhile back but nature is full of beautiful textured things! ❤

I just love the surprises that those textured things you'll find in nature throw at you – like in this one. ❤

Ok, I'm off to watch a movie for my Critical Thinking class.

Oh, and I have to say, prom on Saturday went brilliantly!




That’s how I my hair was done up for the dance.

My whole get up, although I did end up wearing flats because they were more comfortable. 🙂 Despite wearing flats, my feet were killing me at the end of the night.

Close up of the back of my head, I refused to let her use any hair spray, only Bobby pins.

This was part of what we did after putting table cloths on all the tables on Saturday morning, making rainbow keychains. The dance was put on by the Rainbow Alliance and it was a chance for those who didn’t get a chance to go to their prom in HS because their school didn’t allow it or wasn’t all inclusive. This dance was am all inclusive, come with whomever, wear whatever- just be yourself dance. It was amazing! ❤
For those of you interested in finding out more on the Second Chance Prom that went on here, here is the page about it that’s on my schools website.

Ok, now that I went on a bit of a ramble there, I’m off to watch this movie.

Bye for now!
