Thanksgiving / Black Friday

How was your Thanksgiving?  Mine was very nice!  We went to my Grandma and Grandpa's house and my uncle, aunt, two of my older cousins, and some of the younger cousins were there. But before Thanksgiving my cousins got to stay at our house for five days.  It was a blast!  I had so much fun with all my sweet cousins and we made lots of memories.  One fun thing we did was take selfies but we added some silly stuff to it.










Yeah, we were having fun. LOL

Did anyone go Black Friday shopping??  I don't think I've ever gone Black Friday shopping so this year was my first time!  My brothers were off at a friend's house so my mom and I headed into town to do some shopping!  My goal was to find some boots and shirts for work.  I didn't find boots but I got a really cute pair of shoes.  Here's what I got!!



I didn't expect to get a whole new outfit but look at this!  
Shirt - Label Shopper $10.00
Skirt - Salvation Army $4.50
Shoes - A Shoe Store (I don't know where I got it at) $30.00

~ Did you go Black Friday Shopping?  What did you get?  Any good deals?  How was your Thanksgiving?  Hope you enjoyed this quick blog post! ~

Chore Time!


When I do my chores (when I say chores I mean feeding the goats, giving them water, and a lot more) there's a few things I like to bring out with me.


1.  A pocket knife
It's very important to have a knife with you when doing chores.  You never know when you might have to cut a bail open or fix something.  


2.  A Note Book
I have great inspiration while doing chores!  As I'm writing this post I'm sitting on the cold ground writing from the light of the barn.  It's dark out but I can stills see the snowflakes coming down.  In the background the neighbor's dogs bark but here on the farm the pigs slurp their water loudly, the cow moos, and the goats walk around impatiently. 

My goats and I can be silly sometimes. πŸ˜†

3.  My Phone
Most of the time I like to listen to music and text a friend while doing chores.


(My brothers and I did our neighbor's chores for a few days.  I just had to take a selfie with his horse!)

What are something you bring out while doing chores?  What do you think of this post?  Hope you enjoyed it!  Do you all like farm posts like this one?  What are some things you would like to hear from me?

Vice President to President...

Do you remember my blog post when I told about how I was the vice president of our 4-H club? Well, we just had our 4-h meeting where we elect new officers. I was debating this year to ether be president or secretary. Although, I've been told by liable sources that Secretary is the hardest office. Here's some background on what all the offices involve...

President- the president leads the 4-h club.
Vice President- they don't do very much at all. Pretty much all they do is sit upfront and if the president, secretary, or treasurer isn't there they take their place.
Secretary- they take roll call and write/read the minutes to the last meeting. I had to do this for one of the meetings and it wasn't easy! Also, some people's names are hard to punouse.
Treasurer- they take care of the money. No, they don't bring the money home or even make checks.  They have to read to the club how much money we have, expenses, and more.
News reporter- they don't get to sit up front but they are important. They put an article in the local news paper telling about meetings coming up.

So now that I've told you the different offices I have some big news!! 

I am now the president of our 4-H club!! 

I'm supper excited about it... we'll see how it goes. 😊  

Hope you enjoyed that news and learned a little bit about the different offices in 4-H. 😁

A Big Blessing

I have some exciting news!  If you remember one of my goals for this year was to get a steady job.  Well at first it was really hard to find one.  I looked around and called quite a few places but nothing came out of it.  So all I could do was pray and keep looking. 

In August my neighbor told me about her job and even gave me an application.  Now that was in between camp and fair so I was really busy.  But I finially I did fill out the application and in two weeks I was called for an interview. After that it was all meeting people, paperwork, scheduleing dates, and more.  Today I'm now working at a nursing home in activities. 

I'm loving my job and meeting so many people!!  God really blessed me with this job!  Hopefully I'll have pictures and more news about my job soon.

Getting away

Sometimes you just have to get away and last week that is exactly what my family got to do.  It was relaxing but yet physically challenging too.  Why physically challenging?  Well, here's some things we did.

We got to go on fun bike rides!  We saw some beautiful views.  Here's some of the views we saw.







Then one day we decided to ride all the way to an old railway tunnel.  We rode on a rails to trail.  The way out was great!  We finally got there after 15 miles and you'll see from the pictures what we saw!  We walked through the whole thing and then back again.  I found out that I'd rather go high in the sky than underground.  But then we had to go all the way back to our campground.  At the end we drove 35 miles that day!  That wasn't so fun going back.





Not only did we go biking but we also went kayaking!  That was the first time my family ever went kayaking together so it was a lot of fun!





Now, my brothers love to hike.   So of course we went hiking.



Look what this is! Can you guess what it's from? ⬇️


Yup! It's from a bear!!! We saw this four times.  A little scary...

Then early one morning we hiked up the mountain to see this!


It was filled with names of people who've hiking up the mountain before.




After such a long time and no breakfast yet I had to get some energy...

We went all the way up there for a beautiful view and this is all we saw.


It was a very foggy morning.


At the end we had a blast!

~ Do you like getting away?  Isn't it just so nice to forget about everything and have a long, restful and fun time? Have you gotten to go on a family vacation yet? ~

Hair Crazy!

As most of you know I have blond, long hair.  For a while I was greatly considered cutting it.  I just wanted to look older, more stylish, and not have to deal with long hair.  But after some thinking about it I decided to keep my long hair. 😊  I always said to myself that I wasn't going to cut my hair because I wanted to keep it long.  Also I figured I could do a lot more in long hair than short.  If I were to cut my hair though I'd cut it mid-back length and maybe add layers.

So I did decide not to cut my hair but I still wanted it stylish!  I found how!  Dutch Braids, waterfall braids, buns, cute ponytails, french braids, and more of the newer things that are on Pinterest.  I don't have change my hair by cutting it but by what I do in it.  

I'm more of a throw it up in a bun, ponytail, or under a hat kind of a girl.  πŸ˜‰  But finally I trained myself to do French braids.  Then after that, Dutch Braids.  I was so excited!  

Here are some things I found on Pinterest to do, and somethings I did in my hair...





So those were all from Pinterest and now here are a few things I did!!






Someone did this in my hair for the big action night at the fair...

I know the pictures aren't that great! But they are okay. 

Do you have long hair?  Do you think it's a good idea for me not to cut my hair?  Have you done a Dutch braid in your hair?  Was it hard to learn?
