Hello everyone! I'm sorry I haven't posted in a bit....  Starting tomorrow, I'll be traveling for a short time, but I will be back soon! I should have a post up early next week, if I can help it.

For now....a poem I wrote about traveling! We're going to a homeschool conference in Omaha, so I'm super excited for that! Here we go....

                                                       Driving, flying, boating, walking!
                                                     Travel can be a most exciting thing.
                                                   The anticipation, the exhilarating wait.
                                       An adventure yet unsung, a story waiting to be written.
                                          The scenes rush by, so many people, so little time.
                                                          You never want to stop.
                                                            Until that fateful day,
                                        When you yearn for that lovely place called home. 
                                             Suddenly, the exotic places are not as good
                                              As the one familiar place that's comforting.
                                  When you finally arrive home, and you feel disappointed,
                                                                 Relive your travels
                                                         In the comfort of your own bed.

See you all soon! Have a blessed week with your friends and families! :)

Blog Makeover and Billboard Music Awards!

Hi guys! :) In case you haven't noticed....I gave my blog a makeover! I'd been wanting to do this for a while, and I finally did! What do you think? There's a poll at the bottom of the page about my new theme!

So....last night was the BBMA's! And....Taylor Swift took home 8 of the 11 awards she was nominated for! Just sayin'! :) Her 8 awards included....Top Album of the Year, Top Artist, Top Country Artist, and Top Country Song! Nice job, Taylor! Even though she won a lot, I can't say much for her dress. Maybe that's because there wasn't much of it there. It was relatively modest up top, but WAY too short! The color was a royal blue, and looked nice on her, though!

Are you up for a little fashion post? :)

GACK!! Miley Cyrus, what have you done???? The outfit...is...well....REALLY bad! I guess she went to the same place to get her outfit where she got her hair done....
Ed Sheeran chose a comfy T-shirt and jeans and tennies to wear...no suits for him! I wonder how much hairspray it took to get his hair looking just like he rolled out of bed...

Okay, this is her dress from 2012, but I couldn't find her 2013 dress! This is certainly a...whimsical dress, to say the least! A bit...foofy for my tastes, perhaps. Although, Carrie Underwood does look like a princess!

Kimberly Perry of the Band Perry is almost 30? Wow...Reid needs a serious haircut. Like, dude....Kimberly's dress is a bit revealing on top, but with backed lace, it would be pretty.

Hayden Panettiere....I'll forever remember you as Gen from Ice Princess! This is a nice, modest dress! Black is a good color for her, and I like the ruffles up top. It's not clingy but not too loose!

Wow....I'd say that "Call Me Maybe" star Carly Rae Jepsen better ask the fashion police to give her a call! Nobody wants to see your belly button, dear.

Ummm....Ke$ha....I think someone forgot to buy you a dress, so you're stuck wearing a curtain! Ick!

Amber Rose definitely borrowed some of that curtain material from Ke$ha. Wow. It looks like somebody took some sheer black cloth and threw it on her. Hmm..

Chloe Moretz just came from "Textiles R Us". I think she ran out of one kind of fabric, so she decided to paste some other fabric on there, and so on! That's one...ugly outfit.
Chris Brown, the Bill Cosby sweater only works on him. I think you missed that memo.

Well....hope you like the new blog! Ciao, y'all! ;)

Summer+Mom's Injury=Crazy Busy!

Hey guys, I am so sorry that I haven't posted in like....9 days! Life has gotten the best of me...:P Again! I've been busy doing other things now that it's summer, and I've been taking care of my mom! :) She's currently recovering pretty well, and is going to OT! The surgeon says she is healing perfectly, which is a huge blessing! :) Thank you for all your sweet prayers and notes throughout these last few weeks!

I'm sorry that I haven't posted my last day of school outfit, but I totally forgot to take pics of it, and I got into my PJs....so....ya. But next time I wear it, I'll take pictures!

In the style of Kelli from shelearnsasshegoes.com I'm doing a "Currently Digging" post! :) Thanks for the idea!

Currently Digging:

Taylor Swift! She basically dominates my iPod! ;)

 Photography! I grabbed this shot early in April! I've always dreamed of getting the shot and I finally got it! :) I added a slight bit of color boost to this, but other than that, everything in this photo is true to life.

White Cheddar popcorn! It's seriously the best snack I can think of...other than chocolate, which leads to....

Cake Pops! I'm making some soon, and YES I will post pictures!

What are you all digging? Happy summer!! :D

A Little Bit of Fashion.....

Hey everyone....thank you for all your prayers! My Mom's surgery went REALLY well, but she is in lots of pain still!

I have big news!!! I am officially on summer break! :) I'll have a fashion post for you in the next few days of my last day of school outfit! :) But for now....I decided to find some modest ball gowns to share with you! :)

Cherry red, ruffly, and modest! Wow!! Gorgeous! :)

This is really pretty! I have a dress that has a turquoise silk skirt and then a green overlay! It gives a nice shimmery feel to the dress!

I love the skirt on this one! Plus, boleros are always good! The only thing is that it looks too....shiny, maybe. It looks really glossy.

Sorry this is a bad picture, but isn't this pretty? I just love the bow and the color!
Wow....simple elegance! The silver detail on the bodice and skirt is beeyootiful!

This is so classically cute! And simple! And sunny! And elegant!

You know guys, it only took me 15 minutes to do this post, but even if it had taken me a long time, I HAVE TIME!! I love summer. :)

Urgent Prayer Request!

Hey everyone on my blog! :) I have a prayer request for y'all! My mom has to have surgery today...a week and a half ago, we were unloading the dishwasher, and she dropped a glass and cut her finger really badly and had to go to the ER. The ER doctor told her she didn't cut the tendon, but she went to a hand specialist anyway. He said that she did cut the tendon, and she had nerve damage! Her surgery is today at 4 PM CT/MT. Please keep her in your prayers!!

I love you all for your support!
