When in Walmart…

Hey, y’all! hi! 🙂

So, if you haven’t noticed, we like to go on adventures. They’re strange adventures, and only rarely intended to be, but we enjoy them after the fact. Many of these adventures take place in a terrifying and fascinating place known as Walmart! O.o They do, and these are some of the few that are intentional. It’s a fun place to hang out seeing as how it’s huge, never closes, and gets so much money from us through groceries and other stuff that we never have to feel bad about going in without the intent to buy anything (even though one of us normally ends up getting something anyway).

Since this is such a fun place to go and hang out with friends (if you have a Walmart and friends to do this with, of course), we wanted to give you a “guide” of sorts on what order to explore this huge place for at least the first time. Uh… I don’t recommend or endorse Walmart as a “hang out,” but if you find yourself in this maze of crazy–at least this way you’ll know what you’re up against lol ;).

  1. First, I suggest starting in the seasonal section. It’s a fun area where there are typically holiday themed items (or if it’s summer cute gear for pools and being outside in crazy heat. You never know what you’ll find to laugh at or spark an idea. (WARNING: be cautious during Valentine’s Day #) Trueeeee)
  2. As I just jokingly said to ACG before realizing how terribly true it is: “Don’t touch the ham you find in the Pioneer Woman (kitchenware) section. And, don’t be misguided by “Party Ware” signs (I totally should have taken a picture of that.)
  3. Whenever possible to convince the boys in your group, take a detour to the makeup section. It’s so much fun, and you can occasionally find epic things like zodiac sign makeup. LIPPPPSSTTIIIICCKKK
  4. Honestly, there is never a bad time to go get inspired by the office and craft supplies. It’s amazing the things you can convince yourself you’ll do (that you never actually will do) at 9PM in Walmart on a Thursday night. #) Absolutely! The notebooks are also just really cute.
  5. Similar to AJA’s last point, don’t write off any section because it seems too boring or weird. With the right friends and open minds, even the pet supplies aisle can be really fun. Also, if your crew likes games, don’t forget the toy section, because it really seems like there are always new games popping up to explore and try!

There you go! We could give you many more, but here are 5 tips for surviving an adventure to Walmart! It’ll go great 😉 Next time you’re looking for something to do remember (or don’t) this suggestion. 😉 It may just be better to go home and go to sleep considering this usually happens when everything else is closed. Ha…haha…. Nah, sleep’s for weirdos.

Drive wreck-less, my dudes! (Joke courtesy of C’s sister…)

Keep your toes on tight and your eyebrows on the edge. ;P 🙂 😀 😉 O.o ❤

Weather

Hey, y’all! Hi!

So, here’s a riddle, friends: what’s warm in the morning, wet in the afternoon, and frozen at night? Oh! Oh! Pick me; I know! It’s the weather. Uh, yes… yes it is. At least here in Alabama. You mean it isn’t this unpredictable in other places? Only in Kansas, where occasionally you get transported to other worlds when a twister comes by.

Don’t get me wrong, I love living in Alabama and all of the beautiful weather we get to witness. Sometimes I just get really confused when we have fall and winter (occasionally spring and winter) in the same day. Meeee tooo. For example, today C left his house at 5:30PM in a short sleeved t-shirt to pick me up, by the time we left for supper I had on a coat with my long sleeves, by the time we left ACG’s for him to take me home it was SNOWING. Yeah, life is really weird, and it had been pouring rain earlier this morning/afternoon before it ever started snowing.

I also feel like this contributes to part of the reason that people from the south get made fun of for not being able to drive in the cold weather, because it COMES OUT OF NOWHERE. Forget to listen to the weatherperson one day, base the weather on how it feels when you’re leaving (with an educated fifteen degree give or take) and bam! You end up with snow and no bread or milk in your stores for when your best friend has been at your house and everyone loves milk ;P. Yeah, the milk is the worst part… But SERIOUSLY, Alabama is kinda crazy with its weather patterns, so don’t judge us too harshly.

Drive safely y’all (in whatever weather conditions present)! ❤
Keep your snow cream ingredients ready and your rain boots nearby! 😛 😉 😀 🙂 ❤ O.o

Alphabet Rearing

Hi, A’s, B’s, and C’s! Hey, y’all!     

Okay, so, AJA and I have had this weird project going on at my house for the past few (is it a few? It may just be a couple, who knows?) weeks. (It began during the time frame known as “winter break” where there is no concept of reality, let alone time.) It all started because my Mom misheard something I said, and it turned into the chaos you will soon see.

See, she thought I said “pregnant A.” It’s not at all what I said (which I can’t remember now), but the thought was too intriguing, so I had to draw it on the whiteboard that hangs on my refrigerator. It was a very confusing thing to just SEE on a kitchen whiteboard that is usually decorated with grocery lists and small doodles. (Occasionally snowmen get a cameo, too, though). Not only a pregnant A, but a pregnant B and C as well!! So, I asked questions. Then, got “permission” to draw a pregnant D. #)

D happened…then E and F and G *insert Chicka Chicka Boom Boom joke here*…then H (which is terrifying), I, J, and K… …will there be enough room?… We finally finished up U through Z last night, and we wanted to share it with y’all tonight! Good news: there was enough room.

Ah, yes… Fertile letters, bearing young… What a LOVELY sight–full of potential! They’re gonna grow up to make such great words, like EGYPT (which ACG can tell you about next time she has to cover cause I’m unreliable and my life is too 😉 It’s a beautiful word.)

I’m just thankful to my mom for not destroying our masterpiece halfway through, and I’m so grateful to AJA for putting up with my craziness.Without those two things this would not have made it to the end. Very grateful to your mom; also what would I do without your insight? ;P  I’m also not sure what happened to the red marker that the first three were done in, but I’m kind of digging the vibe of founding mothers in red.

 

Drive safely, even if you’re pregnant…with ideas 😉 like ACG 😉 ❤ (What I mean is: she’s creative for this… lol… What I mean is: don’t judge me I’ve slept like a total of 17 hours in the last 4 days.)

Keep your markers away from Annaz and your letters held in high esteem! ❤ 🙂 😛 😉 😀 O.o #)

Life Goals (dedicated to 2019)

Hey, y’all! Hello! 🙂 It’s nice to have AJA back after her sickness and trip! It’s very good to be back.

It’s also a new year! Wow. To think, I haven’t been on the blog since 2018 ;). Which, neither has ACG but… my point stands. It definitely does. 🙂 Since we have wrapped up an old year and are starting in on a new one, we wanted to share a few of our goals for the coming months/year with y’all.

  1. I want to be a little more outgoing/friendly. I’m not great about starting conversations with new people, and I want to improve that.
  2. I’d like to be more grateful for and more mindful of the people around me. Show more respect for others.
  3. Close to being more mindful of the people around me, I’d like to be more observant and try to notice if others are upset or seem worried about things so I might can try to help better.
  4. On a much more selfish note, I’d like to grow into myself. I want to develop a strong sense of self. The last year or so has definitely changed me tremendously and even before that there were difficult things going on, so I’d like to figure out exactly who I am, become stronger and firmer in what I believe and what I value, and make an identity that is mine and not wrapped up in another person (even though I love the people in my life).
  5. I want to be content in the moment and situation I’m in without looking so far ahead that I forget the great things I have now. I don’t want to get so wrapped up in wanting something else in my life that I miss the opportunities and lessons that this version of me is supposed to get.
  6. I want to stop letting emotions dictate my response in a moment. Of course, emotions are super natural and necessary and part of what makes life worth living, even the difficult and bad ones. But, there comes a point when you have to be able to identify a feeling, acknowledge why it’s happening, and move forward in spite of it. Aware that it is just a feeling and just a moment.

And after that deep meandering, I think we’re quite ready for classes to start back up Monday for ACG and Wednesday for myself. O.o Yikes, I guess we are. It will definitely be an adventure with chances to work on these goals.

Keep your hearts open and your minds spinning! ❤ 🙂 ;P 😉 😀 O.o
Drive safely to make it to those wonderful 8AMs on Monday! 😉 😉 😉 ❤
