Fix-it Friday

It's Friday again! Daaaang, this week went by super fast!
Anyways, it's time for Fix-it Friday. I used Picnik, as usual.

Here is the original photo:

And here are my edits:

With this one, I just brightened it up a little bit and added a vignette.

And this one, I cropped it closer, and made it B&W.

What do you think?
I love feedback! =)

Messed Up Computer :(

Hey everyone! Sorry that I haven't posted anything for a couple of days. My computer is jacked up right now and probably won't be fixed for a while. It apparently doesn't have any memory left which causes the internet not work? (I think?? I have no idea how that works?!) Anyways, so the only computer I can use for right now is my dad's laptop.
So the bad news... I won't be able to post anything until it is fixed. I might still be able to do Fix-it Friday's and stuff like that but all my pictures are on my other computer. 
Sorry for the inconvenience. :(
*sigh* I'll be back ASAP!

I FINALLY upgraded to Picnik Premium!!
That means I have more advanced photo editing choices. It's as close as I can get to a professional photo editing program. (: Yay! (I'm such a nerd, haha)

So here is my before and after picture:

Dear Summer,

Can you just come already?
I've been waiting really patiently... kinda.


It really did almost feel like Summer this weekend. It was hotter than usual and perfect weather for Summer activites. Don't get me wrong... I LOVE Spring. But I guess the only reason why I want it to be Summer is because then there isn't school. (: And I can go swimming/tanning... and sleep in. haha Anyways, you get my point.

Here are some pictures I took this weekend:

We have this pretty pink flower patch in our backyard that just barely blossomed this past week.

We are in the process of growing a garden. All it is right now is dirt, but pretty soon there will be lots of vegetables! I'll keep you posted.

This little Red Robin was chillen in our grass yesterday afternoon. (ALL CREDIT goes to my MOM for taking the Red Robin pictures!) She took the picture just right after it had swollowed a worm.

Hope everyone had a great weekend! (:

A Few of My Favorite Things


I made this on
You should go check it out, its a pretty cool. All you have do is enter in a whole bunch of text and it makes it into a collage (I guess that's what you would call it... you know what I mean!). You can personalize it by changing the colors and the font. So now you know a little bit more about me!
Yes? No? Maybe?

P.S.- It even matches my blog! haha

Fix-it Friday

Ok here is the orginal Fix-it Friday photo:

And here are my edits:

With this edit, I used Picnik. 
I brightened the picture up, "boosted" it (or added saturation), added a vignette, and retouched her face and made it a little bit softer.

With this one, I edited it in Picasa 3.
I used 'I'm Feeling Lucky', then cropped the photo, added Saturation, retouched her face, made it B&W, and tuned it up by using 'Highlights'.

What do you think?
I love feedback! ;)

Dreaming of Summer... and My Weekend

Beware: This post is kinda long... and has lots of pictures.

It always seems like the last few months of school, everyone is dreaming of Summer. (obviously) Wishing that school would be completely done... at least for a couple of months. Wishing that we don't have to deal with teachers anymore. Wishing to sleep in. Wishing to start our Summer activities. Wishing for hot weather.
Ahhhh. I just want Summer to come already!

Well, this weekend the weather was PERFECT! It couldn't have been any better! Here in Southern Utah, the summer weather comes pretty quickly. This whole weekend the weather was completely sunny with a little bit of a breeze. It actually almost felt like summer.

Last Summer, my friends and I loved to go to a little store on Main Street called Judd's. This cute, little store has been here for who knows how long, but it has all sorts of old fashioned candy, scrumptious soups, delicious breadsticks, and ice-cream. We absolutely love it!
Here are some pics of the store...

An old picture of what it looked like who knows how long ago... haha

The shelf of candy and soda
It has all sorts of old fashioned decorations and cute antique stuff! I love it! (:

Right across the street is Town Square. Town Square has a little water park, a huge grassy field, a community garden, a library, and is a great place to chill with friends. There is even a little cupcake shop further down Main Street we can walk to also.
Some pictures of Town Square...
{FYI: Some of these were taken last summer, but it still looks the same.}

{In case you were wondering... that is Kenzie in that last picture :)}
Since we haven't been to Judd's since last summer, we {we, as in my friends} decided to take an advantage of the awesome weather and go there then go hang out across the street at Town Square. It was so much fun. (: We bought some bubble gum and had a bubble blowing contest. It was pathetic because me and Kennedy suck at blowing bubbles. haha We also posed with some statues. {There are statues scattered all around the park} This one is my favorite! It's soo weird, but I love it! ;)
{All these are pictures are from my phone that have been edited, so sorry about the bad quality}

The girl is reading us a book. ;)

Here are some more random pics we took while we were there:

Our pathetic bubbles. hah!

Kennedy and I

Ok so... we came back the next day and did the same thing again, but this time we brought Kenzie and Tenaya! haha
We had lot's of fun. (:

Until later that night... it wasn't too fun.

 We were playing night games with a whole bunch of people from Kennedy's neighborhood. And we were playing in this dirt lot with uneven ground, and a lot of tumbleweeds. Well, Kennedy was running and she couldn't see where she was going because it was dark (obviously) and she stumbled some how. She came back limping with her toe (pinky toe, haha) bleeding. She went to insta-care that morning and found out she fractured her bone in her foot will have to wear a boot for atleast 2 weeks. (yes, she and I were both wearing flip flops. not smart.) So that was kind of a bummer, but I guess things happen for a reason, right? ;)

Anyways, everything was going to good until that happned!

Well, I had an awesome weekend (except for that last part) and can't wait until Summer!

How was your weekend??

Jumping for Joy!

I'm jumping for joy because...
1. I redid my blog design... AGAIN! I just get sick of the same one for over 2 weeks. haha!
2. I'm actually posting something! The last time I posted, was about a week ago. Sorry :(
3. That picture is awesome. Jealous much? Haha, didn't think so.
(I'm the one in the pink... just sayin'. The other two are my cousins.)

Anyways, I said I would do an Easter post once I got back but I'm not going to. Why, you ask? Because I'm lazy. Yes, it's true... unfortunetly. I WILL tell you that I had a really good time spending time with family and hanging out with cousins.
Let me just say that... it was SOOOO nice to not worry or stress about school! :)

Well, I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!

P.S.- Vote on the poll and tell me what you think of my new blog design. Please & thank you. >>>

Easter Egg-stravaganza!

The title is a little cheesy, but it works. ;)

Today is the first day of April! Yay!
(and also April Fool's Day... did anyone get pranked?)
Which means all sorts of Spring activities and holidays are coming our way... which includes Easter.
Anyone excited (or egg-cited, haha) for the Easter holiday? I love Easter!

Here is what I love about Easter:
-I love spending time with my family and extended family! We all make an effort to get together during this holiday and it always turns out great.
-Easter is during the Spring seasion, duh! What is there NOT to love about it??
-I love the actual meaning and true story behind Easter.
-I love my aunt Leslie's famous deviled eggs! Yum!
-I love watching the kids get soo excited when they find their eggs. I'm not much into the Easter egg hunts anymore, but I kinda wish I was again. ;)
-I love wearing my new spring dress on Easter Sunday. I just love fun, colorful dresses, and Easter is the perfect excuse to wear them! (: Here is the one I'm wearing this year:

During Easter... it has been a tradition that my cousins from my mom's side, comes down to our house in Southern Utah to do the usual Easter festivities. This year, we are doing something a little different. We are going to little town up north called Mt. Pleasant where most of my family from my mom's side lives. So during our 4 day weekend off from school, that's where we will be! (: It will be nice to do something different, but I still kind of wish I could stay here so I can still be able to hang out with my friends. Oh well... I will try to stay positive! (:

Hope you guys all have egg-stra great Easter!
(cheesy, once again ^^)
haha :P

{More blossoms, yay!}

P.S.- I won't be posting while I'm gone, but I'll post as soon as I get back!
