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! ❤ 🙂 😀 😉 😛 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). 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.  To kick that off tonight how about a list post of a FEW things that have been going on lately? 😉

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.” (And he shall be my 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. 
  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 😉 )  
  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 entire Harry Potter series. We went to see 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. 🙂 ❤ 

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. 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! ❤ 🙂 ;P 😉 😀 O.o

Drive safely, friends! ❤

Sweat Soup

Hey, y’all! HELLO! We don’t have much news, but what we do is a HOT topic. 😉 Oh, ACG… Oh my my my.

THE HEAT OF THE SUMMER IS UPON US AS WE APPROACH THE END OF JULY, especially in our region of the nation. Nearly every day this week the weather app on my phone has reminded me to be cautious due to extreme heat. Walking outside has been voluntarily becoming ingredients in sweat soup (contents: sweat, 100% humidity, the probability of skin cancer, and deodorant that lasted .2 seconds; WARNING: may result in spontaneous human combustion). The app said 87 and the real feel portion said 104 one day. That’s insane.

How do we combat this? We have no idea. We’ve just come to accept that it’s hot in the summer; it was hot in the summer in the past, and it will always be hot in the summer. Well, until our impending ice age, BUT FIRST WE MELT!

Stay safe out in the heat, my dudes. Wear your sunscreen, and please wear your deodorant, even if it won’t last. My words of wisdom: stay in the AC, if possible. Yessssss, do that!

Drive safely away from the sun!!!

Keep your heads in the freezer and your feet in the pool! ❤ 😉 😛 🙂 😀 O.o

WATERMELON!!!

Hello! Hey, y’all!!! We’re a week into July, which means summer is at its…most intense. Meaning you’re most likely to drown to death walking to your car (especially if you live in the South).  That being said, there are also some very happy and fun things in the summer (she means “heat doom time”).  Some of these things can even help you stay hydrated and keep your taste buds satisfied throughout this time of heatstroke.

One of our personal favorites of this type is watermelon! It’s sticky and sweet and a ton of fun to eat. It’s also very juicy and fresh tasting. It makes you feel less dead even when you’ve already passed out from heating exhaustion seven times in your soul.

Watermelon is great as the fruit itself, but there are also other ways to enjoy this wonderful gift to mankind. We recently found watermelon tea, and I re-found one of my favorite juices in history. Also, there’s a recipe for watermelon/fruit pizza that is amazing, especially if you trade the whipped cream out for cream cheese frosting (I think it’d be just fine with whipped cream, but you have to understand ACG is a weirdo who demands things be organized as well as rejects whipped cream, so :/ there’s no helping her).

Recently we’ve definitely been seeking out all things watermelon, although we haven’t tried the “Watermelon Dress” thing we’ve seen on the internet. No, although when I first saw that, I was really wondering how they made dresses out of watermelon. Then I opened the article. Maybe we can try it out next post. 😉 @)

Keep your seeds in the ground and your rinds in your shoes. 🙂 ;P 😀 😉 ❤ O.o

Also, watermelon is juicy, so if you’re gonna eat and drive, please do so safely. 😉 ❤

Rockabye Lullaby

Hi! Hey, y’all! So, most people that are in school are out for summer break right now. Of course, there are some crazy humans who take summer classes, but we’re talking about most people.  For most people who are still in school, summer is a time of freedom. Even those with jobs, often are only working part time. This freedom makes it a little easy to get out of routine. All kinds of adventures happen, but one thing tends to be common with everyone: sleep schedules turn a 180.

That is exactly what has happened to the two of us. We were going to be responsible humans and try to keep some semblance of good sleep like the baby-adults that we are.

That lasted until about the beginning of this week (maybe seven weeks? give or take a few days). For vaguely concerning random pain, I was given a steroid injection, which I’d like to blame most of our lack of rest for. Since, you know, ACG and I are attached at the brain apparently. #) Of course we are. Friends that don’t-sleep together stay together. 😉 I wasn’t given a steroid shot, but I was still up, because, well, AJA and I are tight, and why not stay up for most of the dark hours together?

Really, though, for reasons other than being baby-adults we are going to try to get back on schedule, because we also like seeing each other during the daytime, too. True. And that’s sometimes a little hard to do on a continual three to five hours of sleep. Yeah, that’s not a long term functional process for anyone.

So, to everyone who is partying all night and sleeping all day, enjoy it. One day you’ll have to be more grown-up, do things during the day, and sometimes stay up too late for the occasional party. If you’re one of the ones who’s never stayed up all night at least once a week on any given summer, please try it sometime. It’s a great time (great might be a stretch, unless the company is right forgot that modifier, whoops).  

 

Keep your pillows in the garden and your sheep in the kitchen! 🙂 ❤ 😀 😉 😛 O.o

Drive safely, which can only really be done on a proper amount of sleep. 😉 ❤

WHAT TIME IS IT? SUMMER TIME!

Hey, y’all!!! Sorry if I’m a little overeager today, but this week has marked the end of a HUGE accomplishment for us. WE ARE NO LONGER CHILDREN IN THE WORLD OF COLLEGE!!! (aka we completed our first year and are both now at least sophomores 😀 ) Yes we are. Sophomore year is still terrifying to come up because we get to start all over again (I mean, sorta… but at least we know where the least cringe elevators are in a lot of buildings lol, so true), but that doesn’t matter because we are DONE for now. YAASSS!!! 😀

With that, naturally we have stopped using our cognitive processing for at least the first couple weeks of summer. I’ve stopped being able to talk (I apparently cannot type, so this post is a huge accomplishment 😉 ), and we have resorted to filling our time with easier (read as: mindless) and more fun activities (which is anything as long as we’re together instead of me being 130 miles away 😉 AMEN ) .

To be more specific, however, we’ve both taken up playing a few games on our phones or computers. The common games have to do with something near and dear to most everyone’s hearts…pets! The one we both have is Neko Atsume, which is a cat specific game, but ACG is into a game that includes a massive variety of animals. It defies gravity (*restrains my inner musical nerd* #Wicked), so I appreciate that along with the multiple kinds of animals. Also, I got conned into getting Neko Atsume, but I appreciate it so much that I forget AJA “tricked” me into it. ;P (We were talking, and she told me to get it, so I did it on blind faith. Got that right! It was a suggestion! )

Other games we’ve recently enjoyed is an Inside Out game Thought Bubbles, and if you remember summer 2015, you’ll know we loved Inside Out very much! The game is just as cute as the movie, although slightly more infuriating once you get to level 38. @) I think ACG has a version of Candy Crush, she’s playing too. Soda Saga. I can’t stand find the bears, and currently eat the chocolate is eating my lunch, but it’s fine.

I’m sure by the end of this phase we will have found even more games to play, but for now I think we’ve covered them, except AJA has more cat specific games she can tell you all about. 🙂 DON’T MURDER YOUR CATS LIKE I DO BY RUNNING INTO THE SPIKES. MAKE YOUR FINGER MORE ATTRACTIVE. PET YOUR KITTENS REGULARLY! DON’T FORGET YOU HAVE COINS!!!!!!!!!!! Ahem. It’s called Play With Cats, if you’re into that sort of thing. 😉 Blame my college roommate. For probably more than just that game, but that’s for another time. (I’m just kidding, she’s chill.) I don’t have that cat games, but they’ve been cool to observe. Gotta love distracting yourself from reality through pixels, lol.

Drive safely, and don’t play with cats while doing so. 😉 ❤

Keep your cats in pixels and your pixels in the nail polish!  🙂 ;P 😀 ❤ 😉 :O O.o

Summer…Summer…Summer…

Hey, y’all! For students everywhere summer is closing in, weeks and maybe days away. In fact, a lot of people are already out for summer. And believe us, we are ready to join them. By this time next week, we will have that opportunity and boy are we going to seize the freedom that summer brings (even if at least one of us needs to find a job, ahem. me). RED VELVET WAFFLES!!!

Sorry about that, I’m excited. But we have a list and plan to get it done. All that means is that we have to get through…*drum roll please*….FINALS. They’re stressful, they stink, and some of them are actually just projects instead which is a nice break. And sometimes professors are really nice and make finals that have cheat sheets or in my case open notes and bring your own device. Sometimes they even make finals optional, like one of my roommate’s finals! So, hopefully we both will survive and so will anyone else facing finals.

Keep your brains in the cabinet and your Reese’s in the freezer. 🙂 😀 😉 O.o 😛 ❤ 🙂

Drive safely ❤

P.S. GOOD LUCK if you have your own finals or even just tests coming up!

An Interesting Concept to Bake at a Later Date

 

Hello! Hey, y’all!

So, if you didn’t know, we like to bake. Our baking is sort of a tradition. Today, AJA discovered a thing we want to bake soon. They were brownie and cinnamon pot stickers. WITH CREAM CHEESE ICING!!! Ahem. They look very yummy, and this is all thanks to Tastemade on Snapchat. I am mega hype, if you can’t tell. They look delicious, and we will hopefully be trying to do that very soon.

Well, maybe not very very soon. The home stretch of this semester is coming up, and most baking gets done in the summer. However, once they do get made, we’re pretty sure they are going to taste AMAZING! We can certainly hope, and maybe if they’re aesthetic enough we can even share them on this blog ;). 

So, keep your pots in the trunk and your keys in the fridge! ❤ 🙂 😛 😉 😀 O.o

And as always drive safely. ❤

Summer 2016 The Top 3 (Or Top 6)

Hey, y’all!!! Yo! 🙂 I guess you probably know what you think we would be talking about this weekend already. But we’re not going to. Not really, at least. Instead, we’re going to jump right into the next phase of our lives, which is: SUMMER! B)
And, of course, what we’re excited for about it. So, without further ado, I’m gonna let ACG tell what she’s most excited for about this summer:

Um, well…#1 Working at the library and reading (and doing both at once #24HRREADATHON).

#2 Hanging out with friend(s), mainly one in particular, though.

#3 Swimming (But, of course…)

My top three would probably look a bit like:

 

  • Chilling with some villians. Or, you know, ACG, which is practically the same thing. Mwahahahahahaha
  • Being vaguely responsible. (I mean, only in terms of planning library programs, also with ACG. No one wants to do really responsible things.) -_- nope
  • And…um… I…like…ice cream, and that’s always better in the summer. Plus, there’s a kind of new froyo shop in our town, so even better. Sorta forgot about that place. Whoops, I’m kinda horrible sometimes. SMH. We can lie and say being healthy! (And I just used a first person plural, implying ACG will be with me yet again.)

 

The other thing we are both looking forward to is a tonbunch of crazy adventures and nonsense. Until we can update you on that, though, keep your shoes in the attic and your boxes in the dryer. 🙂 😀 😛 O.o -_- 😉 ;P ❤

Until then, drive safely.
