The Quote Game

Hello!

Today we're going to be playing another game. This time it's called The Quote Game. It's fairly simple. I'll be listing 10 quotes from 10 famous people, and all you have to do is guess who said which quote!
In the interest of fairness, please do not look up any of the quotes. Thanks! :D Have fun -

#1 - "Nothing is impossible. The word itself says 'I'm possible.'" 
#2 - "I'm intimidated by the fear of being average." 
#3 - "Nothing that you have not given away will ever be really yours." 
#4 - "Lost time is never found again." 
#5 - "I'm one of those people who really wants to do everything. And if I had enough time, I really would." 
#6 - "Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face." 
#7 - "Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world." 
#8 - "You're only given a little spark of madness. You mustn't loose it." 
#9 - "It's kind of fun to do the impossible." 
#10 - "Dress shabbily and they remember the dress. Dress impeccably and they remember the woman." 

There we go! The answers will be posted next week. 

Thanks for reading!

Blogging Olympics Tag

Hi!

I love the Olympics. It's playing on my TV right now. So when I saw this tag on Mary's blog, I knew I had to do it. :D (To everyone who tagged me for other tags, thank you! I am working on a big tag post which will hopefully be up soon).

RULES: 
-Use the Blogging Olympics image (or make your own)
-Thank the person who tagged you and list the rules
-Answer the Olympics themed questions (feel free to make your own!)
-Tag others! 

1. TEAM? 
USA all the way!!! WOOOOO!!! 

2. IF YOU COULD COMPETE IN AN EVENT, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 
Diving, horse jumping, or maybe floor gymnastics. Or beam - when I was younger I used to pretend I was an Olympic gymnast and used to do all sorts of leaps on my "beam". ;)

3. FAVORITE EVENT TO WATCH? 
I'm going to be really unique here and say gymnastics. ;) It's so much fun to see people do all those awesome flips and tricks! 
I also love vollyball!! For me it's one of the most intense sports to watch in the Olympics and when I watch it I can usually be found screaming that that ball WAS IN!!!

4. OLYMPIAN YOU MOST ADMIRE? 
Oh, goodness, I admire so many Olympians. The entire USA gymnastics team, Kerri Walsh Jennings, April Ross, and Justin Gatlin.

5. WHAT SPORTS DO YOU CURRENTLY PLAY? 
I play tennis, which is super fun! It's so satisfying to hear the "thwack" of the tennis ball when it hits the racket. 

6. SUMMER OR WINTER OLYMPICS? 
Before this year's Olympics I would have said Winter. But now I'm not so sure. I didn't think I would really like the Summer Olympics, but I've actually been watching it almost every single day since it started. 
I think it's equal, tbh. :D 

7. EVER BEEN TO SEE THE OLYMPICS IN PERSON? 
Hahahahaha. Hahahahaha. No. :P

8. A SPORT THAT SHOULD BE IN THE OLYMPICS? 
Knife-throwing...is that already part of it? If not it should be. But without all the stunts which put real people at risk, please and thank you. 

9. WHAT DO YOU THINK WOULD BE GOING THROUGH YOUR HEAD RIGHT BEFORE YOU WERE ABOUT TO COMPETE IN THE OLYMPICS? 
"What was I thinking?

10. IF YOU COULD CHOOSE A LOCATION FOR THE OLYMPICS, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 
Somewhere in Alaska! I think that would be so cool! 

There you have it! I tag...
anybody who has been rooting hard for their favorite country this Summer Olympics. ;) 

Also, today is Ben Barnes's birthday! He is officially 35! So please wish him a great year. :D

#glossierpink

Hello!

I'm back from vacation! I had an awesome time, but I'm glad to be home again. (This time for awhile!)
Glossier teamed up with me and encouraged me to answer the question: how do you do pink? I found inspiration in their line of beauty products and the color pink to put together this outfit.


The dress is from Lauren Conrad. I love all the different colors of pink on it! 






The blush is from bareMinerals. 

And the matte lipgloss is from NYX. I really like this shade, Soft Lavender. 


And my shoes are from Walmart. The dress has black accents to it, so I thought the shoes would tie in nicely. 

There you have it! My pink-themed outfit. ;) I hope you all enjoyed! 

Thanks for reading!

White Mountains - 2016

Hello!

I am going to be on vacation starting tomorrow (how ironic XD) so I won't be seeing or moderating comments until I get back.

In case you didn't know, in late July I went on a super fun vacation in the White Mountains. We go there every Summer, and this year some friends let us borrow their pop-up camper for a week. It was so much fun and we are planning on going back next year in the pop-up camper again.

Here are some pictures and stories from our trip. WARNING: Very picture-heavy! ;)


The first morning of the camping trip, (after we had gotten there that night) Jo and I woke up at about 5:00 to this. We got a waterfront campsite with a lovely little beach overlooking the pond the campground surrounded, so we saw a beautiful sunrise every morning. 

The water looks like it's cotton candy!

A little while later we went kayaking! Because we had a waterfront site we could easily go whenever we wanted. :D

That's me fishing. I caught one fish throughout the whole trip. Jo caught six. :P



This is us at Storyland! It's an adorable theme park (more geared for little kids but who cares) that we've been going to for years. Actually since I was one. This is us in front of a (rather creepy) talking tree. XD The wall behind it is where you can write your name with chalk on the "branches". 

I'm the one with her hands raised. I've been on this roller coaster a million times. XD


Jo wanted to go on the antique car ride they had so I went with her. She doesn't look like a very good driver here with her hands off the wheel. ;) 

The next morning we had bacon, eggs and toast! Jo doesn't like eggs so she just had the other two things. She made bacon toast. This is her eating it. XD


We went to Storyland again the day afterward. I used to be obsessed with this mountain hut thing when I was little (it's really cute) so of course we had to go in. ;)



We could also go swimming whenever we wanted right off the campsite. :D





We did go to a bigger beach, though.


Jo wanted help with her sandcastle. :D







We used the dutch oven a couple times. We made peach cobbler and ham and cheese potatoes (that's what's in the oven right now).


I had such a fun time during our trip and I'll never forget it! Thanks to our friends for being so AWESOME and letting us borrow their trailer!! :D

Thanks for reading everyone!
