Summer ’16 Playlist

Happy Tuesday! I’m a huge music lover! I love finding new (and old) songs to listen to. Lately I’ve been loving Spotify. It’s a great place to find new music, make playlists, and listen to whole albums. They have pretty … Continue reading

Things That Make Me Happy

bannerfans_17323410

“Things That Make Me Happy” is one blog post I never get tired of reading. I love being happy, I love making others happy, I love talking about what makes other people happy. I know it’s only natural that we’re not happy 24/7. But, whenever negativity creeps into my mind, I try and think of these things and focus on how blessed I am. My hope is that this post will make your day a little brighter.

These are some things that definitely make mine brighter…

Coffee

Yes. Something as simple as coffee can make my day so much better. I have one cup every morning, and sometimes treat myself to a second midday pickup 😉 I love everything about coffee. It’s yummy, warm and tastes amazing. Also, I love collecting cute mugs, although my mug cabinet is getting quite full… 

Reading

I love reading! I don’t get the chance to read as much as I would like (due to having a fairly busy schedule). However, I try to set time aside each day to “hit the books,” that aren’t for school. I love reading everything from classics to science fiction. I love reading about worlds others have created, and seeing what it’s like inside their creative minds. 

Photography

A picture really is worth a thousand words:

These photo’s are heartbreakingly beautiful. I love how photography has no words, just an image. Yet, it can send a message so much more powerful than words ever could. It reaffirms my belief that if you close your mouth and open your eyes, you’ll learn so much. 

 

Family

Family is such a blessing! I am so grateful God placed these awesome people in my life. We’re a little crazy, but there’s never a dull moment 😉

Traveling

I love exploring this big world. It’s so vast and diverse! I love going new places and experiencing new things. Things like going to Disneyland with my family when I was seven, or visiting the mountains of Tennessee for Christmas are memories I’ll always treasure. There are so many places I hope to go in my lifetime. I’m so excited to see where the future will take me!

 

Faith

My relationship with God is my main priority. I am so grateful to have such a gracious and forgiving Father who loves me in spite of all my failures. I love reading my bible, and learning more of God’s word. My faith has helped me through so much, and I know that with faith I can do anything.

Animals

Okay, I’m pretty sure animals make everyone happy…? Everything from dogs to giraffes; any animal (except a snake or insect, eww!) I love. Whenever you’re feeling down, Google cute animal pictures! You won’t regret it.

Those are just a few of the many things that make me happy. I hope you enjoyed this post and have a lovely week ❤

New Beginnings. 

Hello! My name is Edye (E-D) and I’m a new teenage “lifestyle blogger”. I have been a reader of blogs for over a year and thought I’d finally make a blog post of my own. My life isn’t all that interesting, but maybe somebody will think it’s entertaining? I’ve gone back and forth trying to pick a first blog topic. I thought why not a good ol’ Thinking Out Loud?!  I love reading them and I love writing, so here it goes…   

Disclaimer: I wrote this post two days ago, on Thursday, and just now decided to finally post it.   Feeling under the weather. I like to think of myself as a healthy person. I eat healthy, exercise, drink lots of water, get a flu shot, etc. However, all those things (unfortunately) don’t make me exempt from the occasional cold. This past week has consisted of a sore throat, runny nose, congestion and HEADACHES!! UGH! I am slowly feeling better and more like myself day by day. I’m a Type A person, so relaxing and “taking it easy” is very difficult for me. I have a hard time letting myself relax when I have exams to study for, workouts, books to read, chores to do… But, I know that rest is a necessity for our bodies, just like air. I have tried to learn from this and not push myself so much. Practice makes perfect. 

Pretty Little Liars…? Okay, what season are we on? 5? 6? I love this show and am attached to the characters. But, honestly I’m so confused already. Who is Sara Harvey? Why didn’t we get to know Charlotte/Charlie more? So many questions. I think they’re running out of plot ideas and are grasping for straws at this point. I’m a loyal fan and will watch this show until the end, but honestly have no idea where this season will end up. I am excited to find out though!

  Super Bowl 50 Sadly, my Seattle Seahawks weren’t in the super bowl this year. I am a very loyal fan (insert fan pics here)   I was willing to root for my moms boy Peyton Manning this one time. Sunday afternoon was pretty chill. My mom, grandma and I watched the game, ate chips, rooted for the Bronco’s and they won!! YAY! Yay for my mom, not because I’m a fan 😉 Let’s talk commercials. I was a little underwhelmed with them. What’s up with Budwiser? Where’s the horses and puppies? Where’s the sappy commercials that make me have really bad allergies? The only one that stood out was the Dorito’s and Suburu commercials. Those were a solid B+. 

 Swinter I feel like it’s 2011 and I’m back in my pink bedroom watching Phineas and Ferb. Winter this year has been all over the place. Hot one day, cold the next. Mother nature has been really odd recently. I’m no Al Roker, but I know this whole El Niño thing is messing with winter’s mojo. #ThanksPhil    

Well that a wrap! I think I could get used to this whole blogging thing 😉 Hope you all have a fabulous weekend ❤ 

Question time: 

Do you watch PLL? What do you think of this season?

 Who’d you root for in the Super Bowl? Broncos or Panthers?
