12 hours straight // chalk


Sometimes you're so tired you could sleep for days. I'm sure many of you understand that feeling - but I truly think that yesterday was the most exhausted I've ever been. I would usually listen to the saying " I could sleep for a week." and roll my eyes, like seriously, who ever did that?! After a full weekend, which included getting ready for a siblings birthday, I could barely get up Monday morning. But, the promise of driving woke me up. ;)  I slept for 12 hours straight that night. I was quite literally starving and lightheaded when I woke up, since the last time I eaten was like 18 hours before. :P Note to self: Eat a small snack before bed when you're that sleepy! haha!

 Part of that full weekend was going to a park with my family. It was really beautiful and relaxing. I think I took 100 photos. lol! ;) I've still got to delete some..my poor phone is stuffed. hehe! I brought a bunch of chalk and I did chalk art on the bridge with my little sisters, and then we all did paper boat races in the stream. I was glad that the whole event was going along smoothly - and just as we were starting to pack up - the rock, quite literally, made a splash.

STORY TIME!!!! :D 

  I stepped on rock (that had been there for YEARS and looked very safe) to grab my little brother's hand to help him up from where he was in the water. And, just as I started to pull him up, the rock gave way! I went tumbling into the stream -  and ended up soaked. I wasn't even in a swimsuit! lol! My whole left side was soaked, but get this, my right pocket WHERE MY PHONE WAS stayed dry. Yeah, I sighed a huge sigh of relief. ;) Believe me, I am never going to be stepping on any rocks close to rivers anymore. :D

Do you remember the longest you've slept from just being tired?
Have you ever had a close call with your phone like that??

  1. I love the vibrancy of the second photo! I can understand that feeling of exhaustion; whenever I come home from these three hour rehearsals every night, I just grunt, get a piece of bread covered in whipped cream, and just fall asleep because I just end up being that tired. It's a good tired; my only complaint is that I can never sleep in as long as I would wish, because I have school the following day! Ugh! :P

    xoxo Morning

  2. I don't think I've ever been that exhausted, but I'm not sure! I'm pretty tired right now, because I had a horrible night's sleep (I woke up at 3 something and never went back to sleep! ). And luckily, I have never had that close of a call with my phone. I mean, I've dropped it on concrete multiple times, but never near water! It sounds like you were lucky!

    1. Oh boy! Why couldn't you fall asleep?? Are you sick or something? :P Oh yikes, have you ever cracked it? It's a terrifying feeling when you drop your phone, isn't it? haha!

  3. Oh my gosh...your phone was completely safe!! Was that a miracle or what?!
    And you slept for 12 straight hours? Whoa!! It's actually kind of funny that that happened to you this past weekend, because my family was really busy this weekend too, and on Saturday night I went to bed exhausted and slept for 8 and a half straight hours! Without waking up!! I NEVER do that! I always wake up at least once in the night, so yeah...I was tired.
    Great pictures by the way!! I especially love the one you took of those flowers. :)

    1. Hahaa, maybe! ;) It was pretty awesome though! Yeah, I was soooo tired! I had barely slept - so I did it then. I don't think I even moved all night! I woke up stiff. ;) Isn't it a good feeling though? I still had to force myself to get up though. :D Thanks!! I love taking photos. :)

  4. I totally know what you mean, I've stayed tired for weeks now. Good thing your phone didn't get wet! That would have been terrible!

  5. Good thing your phone didn't get wet :)
    Yeah, I understand about being tired. That's literally happened to me like soo many times, and it's not even funny. Actually, eating before bed doesn't give your body enough time to digest the food and in result, the next morning when you wake up, you feel even more tired and sluggish. ^_^ but it's totally something i do sometimes too..i mean really, FOODDD!

    1. Haha tell me about it! I really don't have the money to buy a new one and I kinda need it to keep my blog going and keep in contact with long distance friends. ;) I think I might fall into a relapse if I lost texting! :D
      Oh that's true! :p Well, I guess eat a good sized dinner. ;) How are you?? I had my first drivers ed class today!! :D
