Life Update || My Life is Boring

It hasn't really been that eventful of a life lately.

I mean yeah, I do things... on occasion. But mostly I like things to be quiet and not stressful, so not a lot's been going on lately.

Buuut let's see, since I last posted a life update, (in January! Horrors!) here's what's been going on!

1.) Right about the middle of January, it started to snow. And snow. And snow. It was probably the single biggest winter we've had in about 10 years. Now, being local to where I live, I grew up with giant winters, and even though it's been a while since we got that much snow, it wasn't that big a deal to me. Like, yeah, you had to wait for the plow trucks to come by before you can leave. Whatever. That's just a normal Tahoe winter.

It didn't occur to me that going so long without a proper amount of snow, the people in our little snow town would become pansies and forgot how to drive, shovel, and plow. LIKE YES, HI, SLOW DOWN, SHOVEL YOUR DRIVEWAY BEFORE IT GETS TO THREE FEET, AND FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS HOLY, PLEASE PLOW THE HIGHWAY BEFORE PEOPLE DIE. Thank you!

2.) Amy took this ridiculous picture of me and my horrible blue purse.

3.) I took a lot of pictures of snow when I was out doing deliveries. It was amazing and gorgeous and holy cow, I live here.

4.) Right before Easter I chopped off more hair, and it was absurdly short. I liked the way it looked, but I decided I prefer it when it's long enough to do things with.

5.) The lake had this gorgeous green line in it, and I was like, "WHAT BEAUTY!"

6.) I went to this creek quite a bit, before the run-off made it swell up and flood. It was nice.

7.) My boss got me this cup, and seeing as she got similar ones for Kat and Amy (that say "Sweetie" and "Grace" respectively), I'm not exactly sure what this means lol.

8.) My sister's family came up for a visit at the beginning of June, and I was finally able to meet my adorable godson, Charlie. He's actually the cutest little guy.

He made me very happy lol. LOOK AT HIS LITTLE SQUISHY FACE!

I took an awful lot of pictures while they were here, but I'm not sure how much Laura wants her kids' faces plastered all over the internet, so here, look at this one. We went to the Salmon Run and it was too flooded to walk all the way through. I've never ever seen it that full.

9.) About this point, I discovered that my hair was long enough to make anime updos.

10.) Amy and I went up in the gondola for the first time ever. (I know, we live here, but that's a tourist thing, so locals tend to stay away.) We had to do a wedding delivery, so we went up for free, perks of the job. lol.

I spent most of the ride going, "I don't like it, I don't like it, I don't like it, I don't like it.." because I'm afraid of heights and it's scary.

11.) I'm 22 now.

12.) The 4th of July was fun.

Kat made the coolest cake, cause she's awesome. 

13.) I got the prettiest picture of my mommy.

14.) My nieces came up for a couple days and we were really excited to be going for froyo.

15.) I manage the social media at the flower shop, and sometimes the only way to get a proper picture of a flower crown is to pose for it. (Actually if you guys like looking at flowers, you should follow us on facebook and instagram.)

16.) I FINALLY STARTED AN ART INSTAGRAM PAGE! And I post there almost every day, so if you prefer that way of seeing my art, please do take a look. #shamelesslyselfpromoting.

So yeah.. it hasn't been a hugely exciting first half of 2017. It's been kind of an tough year. Lots of good.. but lots interestingly things too.

That being said, I am currently watching Age of Ultron and munching on delicious popsicles, so that's a very good thing. 

There's a really good I've been listening to a lot lately, it's called My Girl and it's by Dylan Scott. You should check it out. :)

Question Time!
What's going on with you?
Anything new?
Have you heard that song? 

I love you all!


  1. Ooh, good to read what you've been up to! The banner/picture thingy to introduce this post is beautiful. :-)

    Oh my word! That is a lot of snow! Could you send some of it my way next time, please? Or maybe that's not such a good idea--the locals here have no idea how to respond to ONE FOOT of snow, much less three! :-)

    That hat is cute!

    I don't know why, but your new haircut makes you look like you could be a companion of the Doctor!

    *gets urge to paint a picture of the lake*

    Haha, well, maybe the mug means you have a lively spirit?

    Those pictures of you and your family are beautiful!

    Hah, I've not been doing much (other than crocheting and THINKING about writing...that counts, right?). Although I have been blogging a bit more recently. :-)

    1. Hahaha aw thank you! (That picture was taken at the Salmon Run and it's gorgeous there.)

      lol yeah that was a lot of snow. It was really good for the lake though, so that's awesome!

      Yeah it's cute, but I felt like I should be at the races in it. lol.


      Ooh Do it!

      lol It was just funny, we laughed pretty hard about that mug.

      aw thank you. You're so sweet. :)

      (Thinking about writing is good, helps with plotting!)
      Ooh i must check your blog out, I have been absolutely horrendous about even looking at them. *is ashamed*

  2. This place looks so magical, beautiful and cozy, as if it had come out some dream or fantasy world like Narnia or Harry Potter.

  3. It is pretty magical lol. I love it here
