This week's quote is:
"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one
wild and precious life?"
She posted so many photos and commentary to go along with them! The link to that post is HERE!
Later on went to dinner (and maybe laughed at the redneck boys trying to act gangster) and then to the drive-in and seen The Jungle Book. But we mainly just laughed and made sarcastic jokes about the movie instead of watching it. #thatshowweroll
|Jacy and I water coloring at 4:30am and then us with our derpy faces and cut-in-half penny.|
|Sorry it's so dark; it was pretty late.|
It still doesn't feel like I even had a birthday, or that I could possibly be fifteen but oh well.
Thank you all again from the bottom of my heart for all the sweet comments in my last post! I replied to all of them individually, but just thanks so much!
Let's see what God has for 15!
HOW TO BE A POET
When you've found your style, stick to it.
it's adorable and I consider buying it. Eventually, I purchase it and then I go home, try it on, realize
it's not me, and then end up taking it back.
For example: I find that I love (and feel best) in darker colors. So, therefore, I don't tend to buy
anything that's Fourth of July red. Unless of course, it's the Fourth of July, BUT YA KNOW.
Or take my Easter dress for example. I tried on a dress (that just so happened to match my friends)
and it fit me well and wasn't too short, but it was bright peach. I mean bright peach. And huge polka
dots all over. I knew my friend really wanted us to match if we could cause, I mean, #Instagrampictures
and #friendshipgoals, but it wasn't me and I knew I would not feel myself wearing it.
So I didn't get it. I ended up wearing a comfortable maxi dress that I loved. It was mainly
black and white but had a short piece of color at the bottom.
Do not, under any circumstances, wear some just because it's trendy.
I hate when people do this.
It's not them, we all know it's not them, but it's just the trend so. *girl with hand up emoji*
|Old Navy never fails me. Tent dresses are my pride and joy.|
Or to turn this around:
Do not, under any circumstances, wear something just because your friends like it.
If your friends are super girly people don't dress girly just to please when that's not you.
Actually, come to think of it, the two friends I see the most are girly people. Exhibit A is in the
Easter picture. So I obviously don't dress for the people around me *laughing emojis*
Veronica may love something and be like, "OOooooooooOOOOooo! You should SO get this!"
but I will be second guessing it because I know it's not me.
She loves brighter colors, I don't. She loves dresses, I don't. (unless, of course, we are talking about
knit tent dresses or tunics. In that case, I love dresses.) She's very much basic, but I'm not.
Be. Yourself. Always. Okay?
|honestly, the closest shade to pink I've worn in like, a year.|
Even if people don't like your style, wear what you love anyways.
I recently took a strong liking to round sunglasses. I just think they're positively adorable.
I was wearing them one day and two people said they didn't like them.
Now I am a very tender hearted person and I take things to heart more often than I should. I could
have easily kept thinking about it and never wore them again just because someone else didn't like them.
But I didn't.
I kept wearing them babies all day. I almost let it get to me but I stopped myself.
All my life my style has been dictated by what I thought other people would like to see me in either
because I wanted to be liked, or other dumb reasons and I'm tired of that! If I like my clothes no one
else's opinion should get in the way of me wearing something just because it's not their taste. For the first
time in my life, I am dressing how I want to, not how I think other people want me too.
Unless you love sewing, try to avoid buying anything that will need altering.
This tip is really for certain people, I guess.
I just know for me, if I find something at Walmart that isn't in my size and will need altering the clothing
article more often that not ends up in the "to sew" pile and is never seen again.
So for people like me: if they don't have you size, try coming back a few days later and checking again.
The only time I throw this tip out the window is if I really love or need the item.
But again, this tip can really just be applied to my fellow procrastinators!

Special thanks to Nina for joining in this week!
(Your embroidery is amazing, and um so is your singing. Wow. #blownaway)

Finished this embroidery last night, now I'm at rehearsals for SoM! Pray that I
can get over my cold, since I cannot sing at the moment! #growingtolive
