My Life Lately

Hey everyone!
How are you guys? I'm doing pretty well overall. My shoulder has been bothering me for the past week, but luckily it seems to be getting better. ;)
My daddy's birthday was last Wednesday. For birthdays, we always like to have fun at home as a family. We don't really throw birthday parties with our friends.
Today we went to go visit my grandmother, who is in the hospital. She had to have her spleen removed. Now, she's doing a lot better!
And...my birthday's tomorrow! :)
Technically we won't actually be celebrating it until Sunday though.
Me and my sister decided this year, instead of receiving gifts, we would like to receive donations to give to the local animal shelter! We're going to be having a donation party at my co-op on Feb. 4th!
So yeah, that's been my life lately. I hope to be blogging more often soon though!

Stranded on a Deserted Island Tag

Hey everyone!
So I've decided to create a tag of my own! My friend Julia created one a few months ago, and I was like, hey, it sounds like fun to create a tag! So here we go: I call it, Stranded on a Deserted Island tag.
1. You thank the person who tagged you.
2. Answer the questions below.
3. Tag a few other bloggers (3,5,10,15, any amount!) and let them know.



So here's the scenario: You are stranded on a remote island for 1 year. Keeping that in mind, answer the questions below:

You can have one food item (besides all the fish you can catch!). What would you choose?
Well, hmmm....I'm going to say mac and cheese! I love mac and cheese, haha. :)
You can have only one beverage (besides fresh H20)?
Probably tea. I love tea, and that's a smarter decision than pepsi. ;)
What ONE outfit would you bring to wear (top, bottom, and shoes)?
I'm going to be assuming this island is warm/hot, so I'll choose a t-shirt, shorts, and my tennis shoes.
1 Author: You get all the book they've ever written.
Definitely Erin Hunter! I absolutely love her books, and she has written a LOT of books. :)
1 Magazine: You'll get one each month!
Probably American girls or the King's blooming rose magazine.
1 Freebie item, it can be anything (other than your cell phone, I wouldn't imagine you would get a good reception anyway. ;))
Wow, this is hard! Hmm....maybe a pillow! :)
While struggling to survive, what cool thing could you do for 1 whole year?
Hang and play in the forest!
Best thing about solo island living: the beach, do WHATEVER I want, great tan, or lot of "alone time"?
Either the beach, or getting to do whatever I want.
Ickiest thing about your so-called paradise: too much alone time, awful sunburn, learning to fish, or sand in everything?
Probably too much alone time. I do enjoy alone time, but not a whole year's worth.
Yay! You're finally rescued! Who is the first person you'd want to see?
I can't choose just one person! I'd have to just choose my family. :)
First thing you'd want to do?
Take a shower!!
First thing you'd want to eat?
Anything but mac and cheese! Maybe some spicy tacos. ;)

So I tag:
Jessica Joy 
Micaiah
Bree
Sammie
Mikayla
Grace
Julia

I hope you guys all enjoyed this post! I loved making it. ;) I can't wait to see where it goes! :)
Have a great day!

Winter Wasteland Tag

Hey everyone! So I was tagged to do the Winter Wasteland tag! I was actually tagged in November...:)


So anyway, here's how it works:
You make a list of 5-15 things you do in the winter when you're bored, and then nominate 5-10 other people to do it, and let them know on their blogs! :)
Easy, right? ;)
So here we go:
1. If it's snowing, go play in the snow! Build a snowman! Build a fort! Have fun!
2. Cozy up by the fireplace with a warm drink, and read a good book.
3. Have yourself a dance party to warm yourself up!
4. Play a game with your siblings or family.
5. Bake a special treat for yourself, family, or friends!
6. Curl up and watch a nice movie.

Gosh, I want to do these things now! Haha! I tag:
Grace from The Short End of Things
Libby from Simplicity and Domesticity
Bree from Cover Up for Christ
Micaiah from Adventures Beyond the Horizon
Christina from Our Wood Home 

Thank you so much for tagging me, Clara! It was so much fun putting this post together! ;)
Have a beautful day!
