The Wonderful Week

Hey, yโ€™all! Guess what? Weโ€™re both back this week! Life finally calmed down a little and we were able to both be on at the same time. Weโ€™re also sacrificing sleep out of dedication to each other and this blog, so ๐Ÿ˜‰

Just because weโ€™re back doesnโ€™t mean we havenโ€™t been busy, though. This past week was full of time with our friends. So, we wanted to share some of our favorite memories/moments of the week.

    1. We convinced Cโ€™s (AJAโ€™s boyfriend) little sister to watch a horror movie with us one night this week, and after it was over we got into a throw pillow war. Well, actually my brother and Cโ€™s little sister beat each other to death with a pillow, and the rest of us occasionally tossed it at each other.
    2. Recently our friend group has taken to playing basketball together. In fact, this is what we did on Monday after Iโ€™d spent the day with C playing with his little cousins. We also cooked supper and hung out.
    3. Tuesday wasnโ€™t as glamorous as the other days this week. We met up at McDonaldโ€™s to take advantage of the new kiosk ordering feature (best invention ever, by the way) then we watched a movie at my house that was a lot worse than anyone remembered. Even though it was a more low key day, it was still fun and full of laughs.
    4. Wednesday was an interesting day. We didnโ€™t really see the friend group until we were together for church. But after that, we went to our resident coffee place and played Apples to Apples, which as always is amazing. ๐Ÿ™‚
    5. Thursday, I got to pick AJA up from her summer class (which is almost over, thankfully for her sake) and we changed our plans to end up hanging out in her bedroom and reading the first story we wrote together out loud, making commentary the whole way. The entire day was old school throwback, but I wouldnโ€™t trade it for anything.
    6. On Friday, ACG was my ABSOLUTE HERO. She actually has been all weekend, including tonight. She helped me make a five minute Walmart trip for my mom, then we went and ate with our friend K. We also had a whole friend group get together following our usual Friday Bible study. We made pasta and zucchini pizzas and played games.
    7. We didnโ€™t really see each other until this afternoon due to me needing to be with my family to celebrate my brotherโ€™s birthday, but once we were, we headed out to the river and played volleyball and hung out on the dock. After we finished playing and eating, we had a singing with the others from our church. All of this led to an epic ice war that AJA and C started (and all of the kids our age somehow managed to become collateral damage in @)).

This week has been wonderful. Iโ€™m grateful for every moment, and I look forward to what is to come this next week. Absolutely! Summer is dwindling, but the friendships weโ€™re strengthening will remain forever. Iโ€™m using every moment of these times to help carry me through the hectic chaos that will be semester starting.

 

Keep your ice in hand and your pizzas on zucchinis! โค ๐Ÿ™‚ ;P ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ O.o @) #)
Drive safely, my dudes! โค

Thank you, sister queen

Hey, y’all!
First, I want to say thank you to AJA for the note on Thursday. I am so incredibly grateful to have her in my life as well. It’s truly a blessing to have a friend you can rely on and trust to be there through everything by your side.

That being said, we’ve been running in two different directions again since we were with computers tonight, so it’s just me here. We wanted to let you know what was up (and I really wanted to say thank you to my squish).

Keep your heads held high and your fingers on the keyboard! โค ๐Ÿ™‚ ;P ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ O.o

Hey y’all! It’s ACG here, and we have had a messed up week, so we kind of forgot what day of the week it was. That being said, we hope to be back on time next week, and to have something great to talk about!

Keep your calendars close and your keyboards closer! โค ๐Ÿ™‚ ;P ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ O.o

Long Week

Hey, y’all! It’s just ACG again this week. Last weekend was an introduction to a long week of Bible study where we attend church, so weย  have been so so busy this week and are grateful for the time and opportunity, but tired from being so busy since last Friday.

Hopefully things will settle down and we will be back together next week!

Keep your shoes short and your movies creepy! โค ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ O.o

Dead, But Encouraged

Hey, y’all! It’s ACG here tonight. Last year about this time, and possibly the year before (my memory doesn’t go that far back) we have posted about the fact that we were at a weekend long Bible study at the church where we attend. We started on Friday night at 7 and heard 9 lessons and a singing after. It was amazing, but we are exhausted and scrambling to get stuff together for Fathers’ Day (which we may post about late, but not tonight, so enjoy your Dads or dad-like figures please <3).

Keep your friends close and your pens closer. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ™‚ O.o ๐Ÿ˜€ โค

Sickness Strikes

Hey, y’all! It’s ACG again. AJA isn’t with us tonight, because she’s feeling pretty rotten. Hopefully she isn’t sick, so she can fully enjoy the upcoming holiday, and that’s why she’s sleeping instead of posting tonight, so she can stay as well as possible.

Until next time keep your hot dogs cold and your ice cream in the blender! ๐Ÿ™‚ ;P O.o ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ โค

Absent Cowgirls (or at least cow-watchers)

Hey, y’all! It’s just ACG tonight because, (sorta) ironically, AJA has been enjoying her time at the local rodeo with C. We all went last night (It was an absolute blast!), but I didn’t join them tonight.

I don’t want to steal the thunder for myself when we were both there, so we may talk about that later, but I at least wanted y’all to know where we were and a little bit about what we had been up to on our first official shared week of summer break. (I had an extra bit of time due to being at different schools, but we’re both out now which is great.)

Until then, keep your hooves on the ground and your horns held high! โค ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜› O.o

We’re Back…Hopefully for A While

Hello! I am here, AJA in text, to remind you all that I have, in fact, NOT died. ACG is sitting beside me and for once in the past month we can be on together and with me not feeling dead in one way or another. So this is a VERY exciting night (like getting to carry two things across the entirety of Walmart without falling level exciting).ย Hey, y’all! It’s great to have AJA back, and now we get to have the conversations I know everyone has missed so much.ย ย To kick that off tonight how about a list post of a FEW things that have been going on lately? ๐Ÿ˜‰

But first, we have a lot of people we’re about to talk about as a part of our lives. Before we talk about what we’ve been up to, let’s identify some people:
-Previously, we have referred to our “other friend.” We said this because she is our best friend and we didn’t really talk about anyone else. But now that is changing, so we wanted to let you know that we will be calling her “K.”
-Second, we have AJA’s boyfriend. He’s only kind of recently (few months now– excuse, it’s basically 6 months as of next Thursday @)) popped up. We shall call him “C.”ย (And he shall beย myย C, and ‘I will love him and squeeze him and hold him forever’ to quote Dory.)

  1. Game nights galore! With the addition of people to our friend group, we have been able to play more card based games like Nertz (my favorite), poker, LIFE, and Monopoly (in Deal or Board forms).
  2. Lots of late coffee runs and the continuing of games being played but also while donuts are being ingested.ย 
  3. I know I mentioned birthdays last week, and I didn’t even have all of the information then. My birthday happened, then 2 days later C (more to come about him later) had his birthday. Then K had her birthday, and after that there was a shared birthday between yet another friend and then AJA’s grandfather had his birthday, too! That’s 5 birthdays within a week and 2 days of each other.
  4. Cooking. Lots and lots of experiments and makeshift meals. We’re college students and a couple of teenagers in our friend group. We are hungry and either plan out elaborate courses of meals or have to scramble at the last minute and be grateful for unnoticed chicken from earlier in the week. (The more elaborate meals are usually C’s idea. For instance, a brunch meal of amazing cheesy hash browns and fried eggs and ACG’s FAMOUS waffles ๐Ÿ˜‰ )ย ย 
  5. Normally movies aren’t our thing. We’d rather be hanging out or not tied to a single seat for the entire length of one. However, we have seen a few movies in the past few weeks, both in theatre and at home. Over Spring Break, we practically watched the entireย Harry Potter series. We went to seeย A Quiet Place in theater, which was an AMAZING movie. There were a few others thrown in there, but basically we spent a lot of our time watching movies and just relaxing together.
  6. Also, on top of all the unproductive fun we’ve tried to fit in some physical activity too, and that’s been…challenging at times and really fun at others. I have a bit of a leg up on ACG because my boyfriend will randomly want to go play disc golf while she’s still in class, and I end up with a crazy step average and dying muscles. But there have been times when both ACG and I have gotten to be physical lately, especially this last week and I think in the summer it’ll be even better.:)
  7. Speaking of this boyfriend that keeps stealing AJA away, a couple weeks ago K and I got to give C our tokens. To explain, a few years back, I designed this token system for the three of us to follow. Each of us got our token and we had one for each of the other two. When we approved of the guy, the token got given to show that. K and I had been putting it off for a while because this was the first token-giving and, well, we weren’t sure how to do it. But C is really great, and we’re glad that AJA has him, so we finally figured out a way to do it and make it official. (Read as: we wrote a letter and tossed it at him before we started playing Monopoly one day, but it was a sweet moment.)
  8. While we are so, so tremendously grateful for all the fun that’s been keeping us from posting we’ve also had more than a few incidences of exhaustion/unwellness keeping us–well, more specifically me–tied up. The past month has been amazing but it’s been the roughest for me healthwise since the fall. With that being said, hopefully I am on an upward trend, will be able to take advantage of the summer to get lots of rest and try altering my lifestyle a bit to aid my health, and we can start posting regularly again. ๐Ÿ™‚ โคย 

This has been one hectic, wonderful, crazy, intense, amazing month. In every moment, I think we’ve both felt loved or learned something. So, that’s…what we’ve been up to.ย I has definitely been an intense, action filled month. I can’t improve on what she’s said so I’m just going to agree.

Keep your friends close and your llamas in the mason jar! โค ๐Ÿ™‚ ;P ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ O.o

Drive safely, friends! โค

Birthday Month!!!

Hey, y’all! So, we still haven’t had kids yet (except in LIFE) therefore it’s just me again. Tonight, though, I’m here to tell you that part of the reason we’re so crazy right now is that April is The Birthday Month. Mine is this month, and there are 3 others just in our friend group (the super close one that’s like 6 people big) with birthdays this month.

This is just the overview; we may explain more and elaborate later, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s crazy, we’re busy and not great at this (meaning life and posting, witnessed by the fact this is Sunday).

For now, happy birthday; keep your candles away from the smoke detector and your presents out of the blender. ๐Ÿ™‚ O.o ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ ;P โค

Kids…maybe

Hey, y’all!

So, I think I’ve said this for like a month now, but life is crazy! We’re busy; I’m sure you’re busy; I’m sure everyone is going to stay busy. We have finals and studying for them coming up soon so I make no promises to be back next week. (AJA told me right before I got on here that we’d be back once things settled down…like after we had kids.)

All of this being said, we will be back. I may be here by myself again to give y’all nonsense advice, or it may be both of us giving you nonsense advice. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Either way, we love y’all! Keep your feet in many pies and your hair in fifteen kumquats! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜‰ O.o ;P โค ๐Ÿ™‚
