Hey, y’all! Heyyyy #)
We have had quite the wild ride this week–everything from doctor appointments to classical music to learning to embrace gym sweat and how to cope with Friday the 13th curses–but we wanted to share with you all the sweetest part. 😉
So, there’s a post here from the end of May about the “Great Teascape,” and in it, we mention that we baked cake balls together. Well, they didn’t actually turn out all that great for a multitude of reasons. Those reasons being: we were inexperienced, reckless, and didn’t freeze them for 20-30 minutes before trying to dip them in the melting chocolate. @) BUT since we have LEARNED. We have GROWN. We successfully made the most (well, okay, they still weren’t perfect but we liked them) BEAUTIFUL cake balls! 😀 Be quiet. They’re beautiful, perfect babies, and the colored white chocolate was probably the best part!
As you can see, they aren’t perfectly smooth and decorated like Starbucks’ or anything, but I am very proud of us. Me too! They are so, so delicious and were so, so much fun to make! 🙂
Keep your chocolate melted and your icing purple! ❤ 🙂 ;P 😀 😉 O.O
Drive safely by bearing in mind your sugar high before getting behind the wheel. ❤
What do music, cowboy hats, fried Oreos, and face paint have in common? Well, if you’re from North Alabama (or maybe been on our blog a while), you’ll know this one right away. Fiddler’s Convention!!! Generally the first weekend in October, it’s where all the best crafts, music, and foods come to party.
On the local college campus, vendors set up anything from woodworking to beautiful jewelry (possibly like a necklace someone pretty great might get for their friend 😀 (so many ❤ to my beautiful sister queen)). One booth–other than the cactus and choker booth I stopped at–that we really took advantage of today was some very detailed face painters! 🙂 We embraced our inner children and seized the moment for a dollar each.
We debated designs for a while, unicorns and hearts, but both ended up settling on suns covered in glitter. They were beautiful and different even though they were the same design choice off the board. We were in lines with a bunch of kids, but there’s a time in life to let loose and enjoy yourself completely. Today happened to be one of those times. Yes, indeed, it was.
The designs this lady and her young assistant could do were astounding. A nice reminder that art comes in so many forms, which is really what Fiddler’s as a whole is. It takes all art forms, especially those not typically renowned in museums and history books, and provides them a place to display as well as their artists a chance to earn money for their work. I can’t agree more, and I definitely don’t have a more eloquent way to say that. For some people it’s a social event to find a friend to walk around and “be seen,” but it has a character so much deeper than that. It’s a place full of new experiences, tastes, and plenty of sights. I already can’t wait for next year. Me either! 🙂
This weekend was a blast and there were plenty of life experiences but perhaps the most important lesson was to not only drive safely but park safely, especially at your local conventions and festivals. ❤ 😉
Keep your ears open and your eyes watching! ❤ 😀 😉 O.o 😛
Hey, y’all! HELLO!
Sometimes, things do not occur as planned. For example, sometimes you don’t get fried Oreos like you had planned on all week or spin a fidget spinner the way you see done commercially, and sometimes your Friday night study session gets spent in the ER wondering if you’re having seizures.
No, sometimes they don’t, but we care about our friends much more than the fried Oreos that we didn’t get. And after it’s over we don’t regret it at all because we’re glad the person that was in the ER that we love is okay. ❤
All of that to say, drive safely and we’ll see you next week! ❤
Keep your Oreos in the cabinet and your toes in the frier! 🙂 O.O 😉 😛 😀
Hellooo!!! Hey, y’all! This week we have a ADJECTIVE NOUN to VERB with you. Once you VERB this post, you will VERB what I VERB. I know this has to seem quite ADJECTIVE, but here we VERB. If you can’t guess, we played a game last night that has a similar setup. Something like Pad Dibs or something. ;P
To be honest, this game was not the official Mad Libs company. It was on a fun, little website called, “Mad Takes.” Still, it was all the fun of Mad Libs. I can’t tell y’all how similar or different it was (identical essentially), because I’ve never played the official Mad Libs (a travesty!). What I can tell you, is that it was a blast, and I’d do it again anytime (hehe, you should NOT have said that oh my my my O.O).
If you are ever looking for a laidback party game or something to pass the time, this website is great. Of course, the original Mad Libs is pretty great, too, and is a way I got to know some people at the college I attended last year. It’s a very casual game. I can only imagine how you got to know people that way, it’s not like the words you choose randomly say way too much about you sometimes. I think I learned a thing or two about ACG and our other good friend of six years. Definitely, I think “Love Letter” was the best creation we made for AJA. It was so much fun to throw out random words and have just as much fun reading the finished product. Very much so!
Well, that VERB it, guys. I hope you all VERB this game as much as we do. Remember to VERB ADVERB! ❤
VERB your NOUN in the PLACE and your BODY PART in your NOUN. ❤ ;P 🙂 😀 😉 O.o
Hey, y’all! So, as you saw in the post that was created last week, you can totally blame me since I was in charge of posting. (I mean, you can blame her, but it won’t really change you didn’t get to read such a High-Quality post “on time.” So, we could leave blame out of it.) I promise you it told me it posted, but alas we saw two drafts in the publish waiting room today when we got on to do it, so we posted those. One of which was from January and I swear I saw posted during the winter, so I’m not sure what is going on with WordPress.
On a different note, AJA saw Harry Potter for the first time today!!!! (Technically last night, but details. It was after midnight…sorta, not really. Never mind.) Also, she’s planning to stay for the football game tonight, so I’m very excited for that. She’ll definitely make the sport more fun to watch. 😉 Ha…haha… Go…Te-team?
Basically, please accept our apologies for the delayed postings of “Winter Wondertasks” and “Vague Characters.” Enjoy these fine selections in place of actual meanderings from today.
Keep your wands in troll’s noses and your cups in the sink! ❤ 🙂 ;P 😉 😀 O.o
Drive safely ❤ (and ALWAYS check your main web page…)
Hello! Hey, y’all! Welcome to a(nother) post where we literally have no idea what to talk about. 😉 Sometimes life just isn’t that interesting or sometimes it’s so filled with serious things we struggle to know what to talk about on here where we try to keep things lighthearted. However, we always to wish to grace you with our presence. 😉 ❤ Of course, and normally we can at least come up with a list of some sort, but neither of us have a list idea tonight. That’s not to say that we don’t have ideas.
Alas, these ideas are simply not the kind to be contained to our public, but rather those we turn into epics of love and woe. Or…something like that. That sounds dramatic and pretty spot on. 😉 What she is talking about are our current story projects. It’s been a while since we talked about them, so we figured we’d bring them back up this week. Vaguely, of course. If we told you our secrets we’d have to kill you. 😉 I’m really just kidding; we don’t kill people. Only characters. 😉
Until next week, drive safely and use your pens and powers of creativity with the care and wisdom they deserve.
Keep your characters in the pages and your words on your hearts. ❤ 😉 O.o ;P 🙂 😀
PS – I blame ACG for this one, no offense.
Hey, y’all! Hello! (First thing first, I’d like to congratulate you for making it a full week into the new year. Amen. I hope it’s going well for you. Now…)
At the beginning of winter, we made a list of things that we planned to accomplish before winter (or at least our winter semester break) ended. We have the list, and were going to analyze which ones we did or didn’t complete. (Spoiler alert: things got done.)
Below is our original list of things we intended to do. To the right of each item, in all caps we will inform you of which things were done.
- Decorate a tiny Christmas tree that may or may not be alive. (DONE – and if you haven’t seen it, check out our December 24, 2016 post 😉 )
- Bake all the things! (seasonal and unseasonal) (DONE, though we don’t quite have cookies out our ears, we discovered cookie butter AKA MAGIC IN A JAR)
- Meet up with old friends, and eat lunch, and get all the coffees!!! (DONE – we even did this three times over #) )
- Make a million and two words. (Okay, not quite literally, but either or both of us writing large chunks on our current writing projects over our winter break is definitely a goal!) (DONE, I wish it wasn’t too much work to add up the actual amount because it was a lot (a grand total of: 51,265 to be specific))
- Ice skating with my younger brother who will probably make us look like baby giraffes because he is naturally that balanced and coordinated sometimes. (DONE – this was a TON of fun, even if ACG had to be a responsible driver and not break her ankle and I may or may not have accidentally danced circles with said little brother. (Good news: no injuries occurred.))
- See the anthropomorphic movie Sing at some point between now and January 8. Yesssss!!! (sorry to cut into her point but YES (It’s actually ACG’s idea, but I’m on board… We saw Moana this past Thursday, so it’s her turn) (DONE, The movie was actually more sad than it looked in previews, but it was great along with Moana)
- Wear flip flops as many days of December as possible, because why not? (DONE – Ha! ACG did wear flip flops. Granted, this is the first weekend it’s been below freezing here, I think @) Sighs @ Alabama. )
- Wear sweaters as many days of southern December as possible, because why don’t we have normal seasons? (DONE, Even I wore a sweater at least two times, so I consider this a huge success)
- Spend as many days as possible with your Best Friend before the c-word rears itself again. (DONE – even if it was not as much time as I wish we could have, the time we got to spend together was amazing and I feel so, so lucky. Same, it was wonderful.)
If you were keeping track, there should be one teeny tiny detail that is standing out to you. WE DID ALL THE THINGS! We did, and I am a little proud of that fact.
There you have it. Until next time, keep your lists on the inside of the bucket and your chicken fingers in the cage. 😉 😀 🙂 😛 O.o ❤ 😉 😀
It’s bitter out there (and also cold! ha…haha) so don’t forget to drive safely during the potential icy season and be kind! ❤
