why do you read my blog??? - really curious here // NO POWER AT MY HOUSE UNTIL SATURDAY HELP

I was sitting at my desk the other day, doing school (no joke guys graduation is sneaking up on me!!) and I was like "wait. Why do people read my blog!?!"

then I just kept on reading my pre med text book about how the eye can see 9 million times better than THE BEST camera on the planet. *nods*

But anyways --- why do you read my blog? Like..is it just cuz I post often and you can easily click on it, scan the photos and for any specific thing that grasps your attention?

Or just cuz we are friends? Or the fact that I'm always embarrassing myself so you're like DID SHE TRIP ON THE STAIRS RIGHT AFTER SHE MET THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND or something


(I would never do that tho jsyk)

Or maybe you just think I'm cool??


so LET ME KNOW DOWN BELOW plus link your blog again just so I am 100% sure I follow you wonderful peeps CUZ I DONT WANT TO MISS OUT.

Also as I write and schedule this post, we don't have power. Aka we don't have wifi - so I won't be able to publish comments for awhile... unless that changes by Saturday PLZ PRAY THAT IT WILL COME BACK SOON

also also MY SURPRISE SHOULD COME IN THE MAIL TOMORROW - it should have today but UHG SLOW MAIL



expect the post up soon tho *grins*

Oh, and I found out that on my moms library card alone, we've checked out 5,374 items from the library since like..the year 2000?? #weloveourlibrary

p.s. when the power is out in the whole town and everyone meets in mcdonalds - it's funny 

LAST TIME YOU LOST POWER?

  1. I read your blog because a) you're my friend! b) you're awesome! c) it's fun. :-) Oh no! That's a huge pain...we had a power outage here yesterday because of high winds. In fact the power went out at the restaurant where I work and it didn't come on again for an hour so we had to close up and I got to leave early. ;-P #feelingblessed

    Anyways hope you make it through and I hope you have lots of candles.

  2. The last time we lost power was a month or two ago for about two seconds, but it was enough that we had to reset all the alarm clocks and the clock on the oven.

  6. We lost power a couple of days ago for a few hours. :D Losing power is no joke for us though because we have our own well (I live rurally somewhat) and the water pump that gets the water from the well stops working if there is no power so we have no water. And then the automatic watering that keeps our animals happy and with water stops so the animals have no water. So it's not too great!
    Anyway. Hope you get your power soon!
    I read your blog because you are a very entertaining writer and I enjoy your style. I found your blog through Sarah's. :)

  15. Ugh having no power sounds horrible. Not if you're spending more time with your family and doing things you normally wouldn't do if you had power though ;) the last time the power went off here was actually last month, it was very fun actually (only because it was off for like 2 hour lol)

    I read your blog because you somehow make total randomness sound SOOOO interesting. :P

    The last time our power was out was....??? In December sometime.... I... think? *laughs*
    Some cousins were over, and when it went out we sat around the fire -- in the dark living room, while my cousin and brother played guitar. (my parents were gone somewhere, so it was just us "kids" ;P)

  24. I first started following because you were a cool person and I was going on a blog-following binge, now I follow 'cause we're friends and your blog's really fun to read. *nods* It makes me laugh so much and it such a different style from the stuff I normally read that it's refreshing.

    We don't really loose power? Once a tree fell on our friends' and they had to come stay with us for a bit (it was the middle of winter). WAIT we had a brief powerout last summer - I remember because we had a whole cow in the freezer and we were afraid we would loose it all if the power didn't come on soon.

    Oh! Right, blog. I think you already follow it? Or maybe it was Sarah... https://skyedancer626.wordpress.com/

  27. I enjoy reading your blog because your character is a good role-model. You are lighthearted and know the truth of God, you handle situations with (even if you don't think it) an optimistic personality. (And you are a gorgeous photographer.)
    Let's see...the last time I remember losing power was in the state were I was born, Illinois, and we lost power. It was probably around seven/eightish years ago. But I remember having to get the generator out, and not being able to open the refrigerator door.

  30. We always lose power at the funniest times - once my whole family was in the middle of playing music together when all the lights suddenly go out, and we all pause for a moment, then just keep playing in total darkness. XD

    I read your blog because it's funny and your photos are super pretty, and because I love how you and Sarah both blog about some of the same stuff but it seems totally different from each of your points of view. :D You guys remind me of me and my sister!
