In-N-Out Burger ❤︎

Today my dad took me to get dinner at In- N-Out burger. I ordered a cheeseburger with no onions, fries, and a 7-Up. It was my first time at in and out burger and I really liked it.😊


Having never been to this fast food place before, I was really surprised by the small menu. At the same time I kind of liked it because sometimes when going into a fast food place the menu is so large and the options so many, you feel rushed by the people behind you and you feel like you can never really make a decision! 😂  


The food was really good (although I’m really partial to McDonald’s fries so I was not a fan of their’s 😂) and I would definitely go there again!

Staying in Boise ❤︎

While I’m in Boise I get to see some pretty cool places and y’all know I love to take pictures of everything and put it in a blog post so here it is! 😊 


The place I stayed at had a cute little pond and I wanted to take a picture to remember it. ❤︎



The beach-like area around it had a really cool fire pit.


There was also a garden with a few vegetables. The watermelon was so tiny and cute! 🍉 ♥️

Scrabble Date❤️

My friend Beka and I are hooked on Scrabble and so I invited her to play with me all afternoon.


We work together and help each other out sometimes and I believe we get better and better every game.


I had so much fun and we’re gonna meet up again soon to play more!

Wednesday Night Fun🌙

Last night one of my good friends Beka came over to have a teenager sleepover! 😅

She came over and we played a bunch of board games that I own, including Rummikub!

Beka didn’t know how to play Rummikub so I taught her and she picked up the game really quickly. Soon enough she was making runs and sets like nobody’s business! ❤️

After we played a few games I thought it’d be really fun to build a fort with her giant blanket she brought over and a few chairs from my dinning room!

FullSizeRender-9FullSizeRender-16

We then ran downstairs to grab some chairs and draped the big blanket on top of them.

FullSizeRender-2

The fort was big enough for us big kids to climb inside! 😄

My friend brought her light-up fidget spinner and it brightened up the entire inside of the fort. 🔦

Beka and I played a few rounds of dominoes inside our fort using my sister’s mini set! 😅

We went to bed shortly after midnight and we woke up at around 8:20.

My mom bought us some cinnamon rolls to throw in the oven and we ate those for breakfast… I just forgot to take a picture of them when they were done. We ate them so fast I didn’t have the chance! 😝

Baka and I played many games of Scrabble together and we both scored over two hundred almost every game!

One of the games Beka won 236-234! My score was soooooo close! ❤️IMG_1594

Building the fort made us feel way younger and playing Scrabble may have expanded our minds… ya never know! 😂

I had a really good time and we had so many laughs…. ❤️

Thanks for coming over Beka!

Weekend Adventures 🌳🎅

Here in Tampa there’s a salvage place that has a lot of cool stuff. When I say “cool”, I basically mean old and dusty. 😅 The place is called Schiller’s and my family and I went there in hopes of finding some pretty wood for a bench that we want to build. When we arrived, the first thing I saw was this HUGE Santa statue standing right in front of the building. Even though it’s nowhere near Christmas, I just had to take a picture with him!☺️

IMG_1285

There’s a big yard in front of the building with wood, statues, and old pieces of who knows what. Then you go up few stairs and there’s a ton of stuff inside the building. From old tools to creepy signs, this place has it all.

FullSizeRender-2FullSizeRenderFullSizeRender-4

There’s definitely a lot of weird stuff in that store but I just kept walking and tried to ignore it. 😂 We didn’t end up finding anything we wanted at Schiller’s so we went right down the road to another place called Barn Works which is a reclaimed wood warehouse.

FullSizeRender-7

This place was really interesting. If you need wood, they got wood. There were a ton of planks and slabs of wood that really caught my eye and it was pleasing to look at.

FullSizeRender-9.jpg

Barn Works, like Schiller’s, had a front yard with lots of stuff in it.

FullSizeRender-6

My parents found two really pretty pieces of wood that were perfect for our bench that my Dad is gonna build. FullSizeRender-8

FullSizeRender-5

The lady that showed us around was named Susan. She was really nice and she helped us find the wood that we were looking for. She even had her dog with her at work and my sister and I were able to pet her.

FullSizeRender-3

The dog’s name was Lily and she was a sweetheart. ❤️

I had a great day with my family shopping for wood at these salvage stores. 😅❤️

My New Teddy Bear 🐻

I know what you’re thinking. This is just another teenage girl who got a three foot tall teddy bear. Well, you’re wrong. This is just another teenage girl who got an EIGHT FOOT tall teddy bear! 🐻

Yesterday one of my friends Ray came over to my house and he brought me a late birthday gift. I had been wanting one of these since before Christmas but I never dreamed I’d actually get one! It took my friend and I about seven minutes to get through all the tape and plastic wrapping be able to see it.

IMG_0682-1IMG_0680

The teddy bear was folded up and squeezed into a vacuum bag to be able to be shipped and I cannot believe it fit in the box that it did!

IMG_0684-1IMG_0700IMG_0699

The teddy was too heavy for me to lift by myself, so my friend just lifted him up and he was so dang big. Seriously! The bear was so much taller than when he was sitting down and it would be scary if he wasn’t so soft and cuddly. ☺️

Image-1IMG_0705IMG_0704

Later we went down to a beach restaurant and had a few drinks and some food outside on their patio. We played some cards and then had to go inside the restaurant around sundown because the bugs were eating us up. 😂

IMG_0706

When I got home I had a little bit of a hard time getting my bear up into my room and I probably should’ve asked for help but I eventually made it! 😂 He is a lot heavier than he looks! 😄

He is so big I could probably just chunk my mattress and just sleep on him instead. 😅 I haven’t thought of a name for him yet so if you have any suggestions lemmie know! ❤️

I love my teddy bear so much! ❤️

My New Fidget Spinner 😍

Hey y’all! So my parents gave me a fidget spinner today and I wanted to tell everyone about it because it’s really cool! 😂

If you don’t know what a fidget spinner is, or haven’t seen one, then you obviously haven’t been out and about lately. 😄

It’s the newest fad and it’s particularly popular with children and even teenagers like myself. 😇

This toy was originally made for people who fidget. Like for people who bounce their knees up and down and click their pen top a lot. It was made so that, instead of bouncing around in your chair while you’re at work or in school, you actually have something to do with your hands that isn’t embarrassing. 😇

Honestly, it has become much more than that now and even though kids (like me) don’t have a fidgeting problem, they buy one just to play with!

Anyways, It’s a cool toy that spins around and around endlessly and it’s super fun and addicting. The spinner I got is red with black bearings!

Image-1Image-2Image-4Image-3

We took a trip today to the mall and then Starbucks. I took a whole bunch of photos and so I just decided to post them here! 😂

I took a few photos at the house before we left. ♡ I posted this one on my Instagram. Click HERE to see it!

IMG_3447

I took a picture in this mirror at the Foot Locker store at the mall… that’s why you can see a giant wall of beautiful shoes behind me. ☺️

IMG_3442

We drove to Starbucks after that and my parents bought me a Mocha Frappuccino. ♥︎

Oh, and this picture has no filter! ♡

IMG_3448IMG_3449

Whenever I get a drink at Starbucks, I always use the Snapchat dog filter on the little mermaid lady… I think it’s cute. 😍

IMG_3451IMG_3450

I had a great day chilling with my new fidget spinner and my family! I really love my family!❤️

Fries Before Guys 😚🍟

Hey everybody! Today is a very special day and I wanted to notify all of you. Five years ago today, I started this blog. Yes, I know what you’re thinking. FIVE YEARS IS A LONG TIME!… And I agree with you completely. Although there have been times where I’ve gone few days –OKAY!… MONTHS– without posting, this blog has been a continuous part of my life and I’m so grateful for that! So today, I’m announcing that my blog is no longer “Four Years In the Making”, but is now “Five years In the Making”! ❤️

Alright, so I just went to McDonalds a few minutes ago and I wanted to post some pictures of me and the fries that I ate!

IMG_4976IMG_4979

I really wanted some fries from McDonalds and so I asked my parents if we could go and grab some.

They, being the most awesome and spontaneous parents, decided that spending fifteen bucks on four large fries wasn’t such a bad idea after all! 😇IMG_4968IMG_4989

My mom bought me a a little tote bag this past year for Christmas that says, “Fries Before Guys”. I just thought, it’s only fitting for my blog post! ❤️IMG_4981

If you haven’t noticed already, I love fries. :pIMG_4980

I really wish that I could say that I went out to grab fries to celebrate this anniversary… but I can’t because that’d be a lie. 😂 I got the fries first, took the pictures, uploaded them to my computer, and not until then did I realize that today is my fifth year anniversary because I checked my notifications tab. 😇

Alright, so… if I hadn’t just decided tonight that I wanted fries from McDonalds, I never would have thought about posting or checking my notifications tab and I never would’ve remembered that today’s my big day! 😇

So I guess that all that happened tonight was for a reason and I’ll put this date in my calendar so I won’t forget next year! ☺️

Anyways, that’s all for tonight! Thank you for reading!

Ricotta Cheese 🧀

Today I fed R2-D2 some ricotta cheese and strawberries. He always enjoys having fruits, vegetables, and cheese. I always give him variety but today he was very partial to the ricotta. I know he’ll eat the strawberries later when all the cheese is gone. 🙂

Lasagna Night

My Dad took me to the store and I said I wanted to make lasagna. We bought all the pasta, sauce, and cheese we needed for it. Tonight I made the lasagna by myself (with my mom’s guidance of course) and it actually tasted really good! 


I added red and yellow bell peppers. :p


I even had extra ingredients to make another slightly smaller pan of lasagna so now we have even more! I’m probably gonna wake up & have some for breakfast.

Today at The Carnival 🎡

Today I went to a carnival with my sister Adriel.

We rode almost every ride and we had a ton of fun.

My parents gave us twenty bucks and we bought some snow cones, a chili dog and some fresh squeezed lemonade. Just like all carnival food, it was really good.

Out of all the rides there, we ended up riding the flying swings the most. They took us pretty high and it was a great view.

This photo of me on this beautiful horse is on my Instagram profile. Click HERE to see it!

Adriel got her face painted as a fox and I got a glitter tattoo of Darth Vader on my left arm.

Overall, it was a great day and I really enjoyed hanging out with my sister! ♡

Last Tuesday’s Photos ✰

Good morning everyone! I wanted to share some photos I took just this past Tuesday.

I really enjoy riding my longboard and I ride it almost everyday. These photos were taken right before the sun went down and they are all without filters because that’s the way I like it.

I posted one of these photos on my Instagram. Click the username below to see it:

Sweatshirt Selfies 📸

Today’s post will be short. I just wanted to post a few photos. 📷 Last night I took a few photos with my Canon in my Pink sweatshirt that I thought looked cute. It’s not everyday that my hair looks this good. ☺️

I put my hair in a little bun and called it good. 👩🏼

I tried to get the back of my sweatshirt in the photo but as you can see, that didn’t work out too well! ☺️
