Wowzers. I can’t believe that in 5 short months of blogging I’ve gotten to know so many amazing people and read what they’ve had to say. At the same time I’m amazed that people want to listen to what I have to say. It’s truly amazing.

I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who read my blogs and who have gotten to know me on a personal level. It’s a blessing to be able to meet people all over the world who actually enjoy reading about my life since you know… I have no friends haha.

I remember when I started blogging I thought I would completely fail and nobody would care. So to all of you new bloggers, just know that there’s somebody out there who would love to read what you write and would love to meet you. I’ll be one of those people!

I know this post is short, but I just wanted to say thank you to everybody who has followed me in this journey. You’re all super amazing for putting up with my antics.  I hope you all liked reading! 💙

August Flashback

This month completely flew by. It was the last month before school started for most people. The last full month before the leaves start changing colors and falling to the ground. Autumn will be starting soon and as I hate to see summer go, I’m excited for pumpkins, pretty leaves, pumpkin spice lattes and fall clothes. Also, the bugs go back to wherever the hell they came from. Hallelujah!

I’m going to go back and see what I did for the last full month of summer. Let’s get into it!

August 1st: First time going to Elevate, a trampoline park. 



August 2nd: Spent the day with Samm, John and one of my other friends. Samm and I caused John so much suffering from messing with his stuff he said he did’t want to be around us anymore.


August 5th: Brimfield’s Annual Car Show 

There were some pretty cool cars there. The food was the best part though 😂

August 10th: Old Settlers 


August 19th: I got my first kitten, Smokey J. 


P.S., I made my cat a Snapchat! It’s Smokey_J19 go add him!

August 21st: Eclipse 


August 28th: Timmy and Jimmy’s first sleepover! 


There you go! That’s a few of the big things I did in the last full month of summer. I had a really fun month filled with being around my friends and family who love and care about me. They all mean the world to me. I hope you all liked reading! 💙

Timmy & Jimmy’s 6 year friend-aversary

Holy snickerdoodle guys! I can’t believe I’ve been friends with this girl for six years! We’ve been through so much together, did so much together, ate so much together… But we’ve been through it all. Breakups, coffee highs, random fits of laughter that get us yelled at by my parents. I don’t know how they dealt with us for 6 years… let alone what friends we have left.

In honor of it being 6 years with her I’m going to tell you about some funny things she’s done.

  1. Once she walked out in front of a semi that was coming down the road at 30 mph. I saved her life that day.
  2. She fell down my step. Not stairs. Just. One. Step. She couldn’t handle it haha.
  3. She named my microwave Eric and now every time she comes over she hugs my microwave.
  4. She put numbing paste in her mouth and proceeded to drool all over my floor.
  5. On multiple occasions she has laughed so hard she peed. It’s okay though so have I.
  6. She was holding a marshmallow out the window and dropped it while I was driving. She made me back up so she could pick it up.

She lightens my day at anytime. She never fails to make me laugh… plus she’s a pretty good body guard. She’s beaten up all my bullies multiple times. That’s probably why people don’t mess with me very much anymore.

Since it’s a very special day, we got each other presents. I’m going to share them with you.

What I got her: 

A bag of Lay’s barbecue flavored chips, two bags of gummy bears, a bacon and cheese pizza, a note, a Mountain Dew and some hair ties.

What Carly got me: 

10 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, 10 3 Musketeers, a can of Campbell’s Spaghetti, and a Pepsi.

Pepsi is not included in the picture.

We pretty much get each other little things. But food is always the best present haha. How many years have you had your best friend? I hope you all liked reading! 💙

Making New Friends!

When I made this blog, I had absolutely no idea that my writing would be read by people around the world. After that idea passed out of my mind, I had no idea that people on the other side of the world would want to read what I have to write, let alone want to get to know me. I was wrong… Again. 

I met this amazing girl who lives on the other side of the world. Now, before I get attacked by people yes I know the phrase “Be careful of people on the internet because you don’t know who they are.”  But I don’t think some creepy sex offender rapist person is going to have a blog and want to become a writer just to find children on a blog. (It’s probably possible but I know what I’m doing.) 

Anyways, this girl. She’s amazing. She lives in the UK, so she’s been teaching me about the culture and what she does over there. I tell her about what we do in the middle of America. Remember I live in a small town so I’m kinda boring. I don’t know what she finds so fascinating about my life haha.

We’ve opened up to each other a lot. We’ve told stories about our families, life drama and everything in between. Then I found out that we both have a few things in common. We’re both introverts who are slowly getting out of our shell, we agree on a few political views, and we both don’t like waking up in the morning.

Since she’s super awesome, I’m going to tell you all 10 facts about her, then leave a link to her blog. I want all of you to go read some of her posts and show some love! 💙 She really deserves it.

10 facts about her 

  1. She turns 19 in two weeks.
  2. When she was younger she had a pet gerbil named Sweep.
  3. She can play the clarinet, piano, flute and saxophone. (She’s talented!) 
  4. She has and older brother who is 20.
  5. She is a coeliac, so when she has gluten it makes her really sick.
  6. Her favorite historical figure is Herodotus.
  7. She writes poetry (She’s super good at it) 
  8. Her favorite book is Wuthering Heights.
  9. Her favorite sport is tennis (She says she’s terrible at sports but I doubt it!) 
  10. She was born with scoliosis, meaning her spine was curved and she had to have an operation to fix it when she was a baby, so she has a scar on her stomach and along her back.

She says she isn’t interesting, but I think otherwise. So EVERYBODY go check out her blog!

Life of an Introvert

She is one of the nicest girls I’ve ever met and she deserves soooo much! So everybody go show her some love! Leave a nice comment on something she’s written!

That’s all I have for today guys. See you all next time! I hope you all liked reading! 💙

I Miss You

Sometimes I wonder if I miss you as a person or all the memories we’ve had together. 

I find myself asking that question a lot. Do I miss you? Do I just miss the memories? Or is it a combination? I honestly have no idea.

My first love, my best friend, my everything at one point in time. Two years of our lives spent together. Everything disappeared. The feelings faded away. Now it feels as if we’re strangers. Even sitting next to you feels like we’re a thousand miles apart.

A person I used to know every detail about, every little detail. I knew you and you knew me. We were inseparable. Staying up all night texting, getting lost in the conversation at 3 am.  The excitement I got hearing one of your favorite songs as my ringtone when my phone lit up with your name on it every few minutes.

As the sun came up we both went into a peaceful sleep, only to wake up six hours later. The texting resumed right where it left off. Making plans to hangout, cruising down country roads, listening to your favorite songs with the windows down. We could sit in silence enjoying each others presence without it being awkward.

Hanging out with our friends late at night, McDonald’s runs, and all the little jokes we shared. I wished the time we spent together would never end.

All good things come to an end. 

Now we’re practically strangers. We went from knowing everything to knowing nothing. Confiding our secrets in each other ceased. The adventures, the jokes, the late night texting conversations and the countless hours spent together are now just memories in my head. We talk sometimes, but it isn’t the same. We’ve changed.

We’ve been through our share of fights. Days turned into weeks without talking because we’re both too stubborn to apologize. It tore us apart. Our own stupid immature mistakes.

Someday I wish we can be close again like we used to. You’re a closed book now. I know deep in my heart nothing will be the same as it used to be between us. God has a path for the both of us. Only he knows if we’re meant to be in each others lives.

Lately I’ve been asked what my biggest regret in life is. I had trouble coming up with one but now I see its clear. My biggest regret is letting us become strangers. 

As I used to tell you every day, wether you’re in my life or not, I’ll still care about you. I’ll be here forever if you need your friend. I don’t know if you’re going to read this, but if you do, I have a message for you: I miss you. 

A Note To My “Not-So-Little” Sister


Okay, so you aren’t really my blood sister. But I’ve known you since you were just a little kid. We’ve always been close, so that makes us sisters right? I mean, we’ve had ‘sister fights’ and ‘sister talks about boys’ and so many other ‘sister’ things. That definitely makes us sisters.

I’ve watched you grow up. I’ve been there to see huge milestones in your life. Like going into middle school, graduating Jr. High and moving onto high school (Good job by the way, I’m so freaking proud of you!). Soon you’ll be getting your license and that honestly terrifies me. You’re not grown up enough! I remember you being a little girl wanting to slide down the stairs on blankets. Now you’re going to be driving, going on dates and so much more!


Not only have I been there in the past, but I’m going to be there for you in the future, whenever you need me I’ll be here! Even though we don’t live next to each other anymore, I’m just a 5 minute drive away.

Let’s name off some memories we’ve had with each other growing up: 

  1. The time I stayed at your house and we stayed up all night. We were so sleep deprived making that pizza at 2 in the morning we found everything so funny we couldn’t shut up to save our lives.
  2. The time you were standing on a stool and the stool leg gave out and you came plummeting 2 feet to your floor. I’m sorry but that’s still the funniest thing you’ve ever done haha. By far the best memory ever! I just wish I had a video of it to show everybody… but sadly I don’t.
  3. Walking up to Casey’s when it was 10 degrees outside wearing t-shirts and shorts with our Uggs. What were we thinking?!
  4. All those nights gossiping about boys in your room and going through all your lip balms. Do you still have all of those?
  5. Hanging out at all the basketball games together and road tripping to the far away games.
  6. All the countless times we’ve had a picnic on my trampoline and ended up falling asleep.

what happens when I stay the night at her house

Although we’re growing up, you’re still my little sister and you always will be. Your family is my family and vice versa. I can’t wait to see you grow up and watch all the amazing things you’re going to do. Just remember, if you ever need somebody to talk to about all the drama in your life or just need to hangout I’m here. I love you little sister 💙

Father’s Day

What can I say, my dad is the best. A lot of people say that their dad is the best, but I’ll never find a guy like my dad. I get everything from him. His eyes, his ears, his love for sports, his appetite… and his attitude. I’m just a little girl version of him. He’s taught me everything I know. He’s been there for absolutely everything that’s happened in my life.

He’s the reason I love sports. If it wasn’t for him I never would’ve played softball when I was little. He bought me my first baseball glove, ball and bat. We would spend hours practicing in the front yard. He thought I was pretty good so he decided to sign me up for a summer softball league. I loved playing so much. Even after I stoped playing we continued to throw a ball back and forth. He went to every single game and even every practice.

I was born into pretty much a St. Louis Cardinal Family… so he made sure from the second I was born I was a cardinal fan. We go to one or two games a year since we only live a few hours from St. Louis. I’m actually watching a cardinal game on tv as I write this haha.

I’m an only child to him so I’ve always been his little princess and I always will be even though I’m pretty much all grown up. He’s done so much for me just so I could have the best life possible. He’s given up so much just for me and I couldn’t be happier. He’s made sure  that for the 19 years I’ve been alive I’ve had enough food (I eat a lot), clothes (I’m a girl I love clothes), a nice home to live in and even more. For my 16th birthday he completely redecorated my room. It was one of the best things he’s ever done for me. He’s helped me  each time I broke a phone screen or a computer… I don’t have good luck with technology.

I’m his little girl and I always will be. Not just because I’m the only child, but because I’m 19 and I look 15. Because of him I’ve been brought into this world, blessed with a huge family, and have the greatest life ever. I couldn’t be anymore thankful to have him as my dad.

I wish everybody out there a very happy Father’s Day! What are some things you and your dad do together? Let me know in the comments! 💙
