summer days and blanket forts

Hello, everyone! Today I was just catching up on some reading when Lanie burst into my room.

"May! I just got the best idea ever!" she exclaimed. 
"What is it?" I asked, curious. 
"We should have a movie night!" 

"That's a great idea! We should build a blanket fort too!" 
"Don't forget snacks!" Lanie said, smiling. 

I got up and went to go find an extra blanket while Lanie grabbed some snacks. 

I returned moments later with a soft red blanket under my arm. 
"Found another blanket!" I said. 

"Great! I have a bowl of nuts." Lanie said. She walked over to my bed and grabbed the green blanket. 

"Let's build this fort!" she said excitedly. 

Lanie started arranging the blanket so that it draped over the bed. 

Once she was finished I started adjusting the red blanket. 

Soon our fort was finished! 
"Let's climb in!" I said. 

"What movie do you want to watch?" Lanie asked, pulling up Netflix. 

We decided on Beauty and the Beast. (BE OUR GUEST, BE OUR GUEST, PUT OUR SERVICE TO THE TEST!) It's one of my favorite Disney movies! :) 

I had a wonderful afternoon with my sister. What did you do this fine summer day? :D


Hello! Gosh, it's been a long time since I've posted something. Now that it's (finally) summer I have a ton of free time (except when I go off to camp, but that's later this month.) I really REALLY want to be more active on my blog, and I have a lot of great ideas for this summer!

say whaaaaaaat?

Yep, that's right people.
I bought a new doll.

Yeah. I wasn't expecting it, and I don't think you guys were either, but here she is! So you might be wondering what her name is. (or maybe you're not. I'm going to tell you anyway.) Annika Rose! She's number 26, and she's GORGEOUS. (her hair is amazing!!)

Airplane Thoughts

Why is this line so long? It's Saturday.
Are we even in the right line?
Aw, that little girl is carrying a baby doll.
We heard about the laptops the first seventeen times.
Wait, so does my phone stay in my bag or…
Why did I wear converse lace-ups? I knew I'd have to take off my shoes.
I know you are judging my packing skills right now, Mr. Security Guard.
Can I walk through now?
How about now?
Okay I'm going.
Nevermind I'll wait some more.
Thank you. Finally.
k now that's over.
Let's find the gate.
I still have an hour to kill.
I'm hungry.
I forgot snacks.
Well then. Guess I'll find something to eat.
That looks gross.
That looks gross.
That looks gross.
A sandwich in a plastic baggie? What has this world come to?
Finally, a decent looking store.
Ooh. Muffins.
I like muffins.
I must have a muffin.
Dude, don't you dare take the last muffin -
There are no waiting area seats.
Fine. I'll just sit on my suitcase.
This is more comfy anyway.
Are we boarding yet?
How about now?
Call my zone.
Please call my zone.
Row fourteen
Row fourteen.
Where is row fourteen?
Oh my gosh how hard is it to put your suitcase in an overhead bin?
Here we go.
Darn it. I have the middle seat.
I wonder who'll be sitting next to me.
3…2…1…BLAST OFF!!
"You may now use cellular devices."
Perfect. Let's just open instagram and…
Oh no.
My phone's dead.
Fine. I'll just read the instruction manual.
This is more entertaining anyway.
I really have to use the bathroom but the guy sitting next to me is asleep.
Maybe if I just carefully tiptoed over…
Nah this isn't going to work.
I really should have brought gum.
Or tic tacs.
Or candy.
Or any food.
I'll just take a nap until we land.
Where am I?
Oh right. Airplane.
Are we landing?


Hey everyone! I'm traveling for spring break, and I thought this would be a fun idea. :) I hope you enjoyed, and have a fabulous day.

red glossy smiles
long silky hair
short, modern clothes
so this is beauty. 

but what if our eyes
saw souls 
instead of #goals? 

what a different image 
we'd have of beauty. 


I don't know if I like it or not, but it's been a while since I've posted a piece of writing on here! I've seen how girls (and boys, too!) have tried to meet someone else's standards of beauty, and it's sad how upset people get over not being able to do so. 
I hope you all have a lovely Sunday. Eat some cake for me.
