My Trip Pictures to Illinois Pt. 1

Greetings, Guys! It’s Kiki! So, you all should know that I went to Illinois to see my Grandpa (Opa) in late May and that I took TONS of pictures. Yes, I know this an overdue post. Sorting through pictures and watermarking and stuff takes a lot of work, ya know. But fear not cause I have done the perilous journey for your entertainment. So, with that being said, let’s begin!

img_8854

The St. Louis arch, which means we’re almost there!

img_8856Finally after to many days and hours of driving we’ve made it to Illinois!

img_8857After a couple more hours of driving, we were greeted by Niñi (I have no idea how to spell it but it’s Spanish for little boy).

img_8860And CC! My cat but everyone (except my Opa) thinks its CCs’ kid. I guess it will always be a mystery 😉

Here are some random black cats.

img_8864This bull was pretty small but he was a big jerk😐

img_8865

I found these cute little kittens in the barn, scared for their life because of me and Niñi (that dog follows you wherever you go. And it got annoying really quick!)

img_8891I can’t forget about the sheep, who were also afraid of me but the little lambs are so CUTE!!!😍

img_8870

img_8869More wandering…

img_8868img_8867He had so many wild flowers on his land and I loved it.🙂

I found this toad that has one of the best camouflages I’ve seen in awhile, cause I almost stepped on or ran over him with the tractor😂

img_8912This is at the front of his driveway.

img_8882Me attempting to take a selfie with CC… I didn’t work out 😜 Our faces are so weird!

img_8889And lastly me and Chance found out that CC has kittens. Aren’t they cute? I love the gray color on their fur

img_8890Here’s CC with her kittens 🙂

Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed this post! And I’ll post Pt. 2 sometime in the near future!

Bye,

My Crazy Fourth of July & Fireworks photo-shoot!

Greetings and Happy late Fourth of July! 🎉 It’s your firework lover, Kiki here! Anyway, I hope you had an amazing 4th! Full of breathtaking fireworks, hanging out with friends and family, and unforgettable memories! I actually had the best 4th yet! Get ready for a long story about the family who invited us over for July 4th😄

My Mom likes watching this Guy’s YT channel (It’s called TeNak Talk and his name is Mr. Hall, by the way) and my Dad found out he lives closer to us than he thought (he lives and hour and 30 minutes away.) So, my Mom contacted him and we set up a time to Skype him as his family (that was two weeks ago; I think.) We really hit it off and stuff. So, throughout the last two weeks just us kids have Skyped each other. They have a daughter that’s my age and a son that’s Chance’s age. And then two days ago in the afternoon Mr. Hall calls my Mom and asks if we’d like to come to his house for Fourth of July and we happily accepted. When we get down there, they showed us their property and then we had dinner. Of course, I was shy and a little bit uncomfortable but that all changed when we set off fireworks…. I’ll tell you my almost death experience in a sec 😉 😂 For now, you’ll be seeing a firework photo-shoot!

 


 








 










 







 

img_8641

You’re probably thinking “This looks like a non-dangerous firework”. Well, guess what? YOU’RE WRONG!!

img_8642

What happened was, that they lit three fireworks on the table at the same time. Other fireworks are also on that table and one lit firework tipped over and lit some other ones in our direction. Of course, I’m oblivious to it cause I just wanted a decent photo but then I hear people running and making some noise. I’m like cowards, but I look up and see them coming right at me! while, I’m running (I was the last one to evacuate) they’re shooting out in front of my feet and everything. Here’s what happened to my clothes.

img_8629

Look at those burn marks!

img_8589

Here’s my pocket, the mesh melted and burned.

img_8590

Lastly, my shirt got a little burned and now has a hole.

img_8630

I also got this mysterious scratch. We’re still trying to find the criminal 😜 But I’m serious getting hit by a firework got me out of my shell! I don’t exactly know why, but it did!

After fireworks we jumped on their trampoline for hours, Mr. Hall showed me his set up for his vids, and then got home at like 3:00 Am.

 

Well, I hope you enjoyed this post! Tell me in the comments down below: How you liked the Fireworks photo-shoot (and which pic you liked. I love the bokeh ones😍) and if you ever had a Firework gone wrong before! 😄

 

Until next time!

P.S: I can’t believe my Birthday is in 4 days!😮

 

 

 

The Mysterious Ville of Tov-Chap 3

img_8336

Suilad! It’s Kiki! I have a surprise for you guys….Chapter 3 of TMVOT! I want to say thank you for the nice comments on my last post about the writing! They really gave me relief and inspiration to write this🙂 And I highly recommend that you read Chap 1 and Chap 2 cause it’s been like 9 months! So, without further ado! *dims lights* *draws the curtains*

A girl emerged from the field but the blades of grass were so towering her face only showed. It was pale and fair but had a cold tone of glower. Her stern eyes were sparkling like diamonds when the sun hit and were the color of rain drops. The dark hair on her head, fell past her finger tips and looked as soft as silk. The golden highlights in her hair shimmered in every angle you looked. Her ears were more pointy then some, but were still pretty and natural looking. There’s definitely no denying it- she’s an Elf.

img_8333

While she’d walk through the thick grass of the field, she’d mutter words to herself that you could tell were full of anger, even if you didn’t know the language. But if you did, you’d know that whoever she left and wherever she left did not end on a particularly good note. Running away is exactly what she’s doing. Which is a peculiar trait for her kind. You can only imagine why she would do such an act. Maybe, she doesn’t agree with her parents’ rules or she just needs a break from her life. Maybe, there is something way deeper we may never know about.

But I warn you, don’t ask her why! Before, the question fell out of your mouth into the open air she’d respond by putting a dagger in your heart and an arrow through your head. That’s what she’s been trained to do, if you aren’t her kin. Unless, her father gave orders for different. She’s especially skilled with bows and daggers. Therefore, she was bearing them.

img_8334

Suddenly, she felt the earth give a little shake and heard some very distance voices. She carefully looked up and saw a girl and cat walking on a straight path.

“Coco, do we turn left now?”, Dottie asked her gray cat. “Or do we keep going straight?”

The cat simply answered by shrugging her small shoulders.

“Oh, what do I do!”, Dottie cried dismayed.

The Elf quickly knelt down and drew her bow. Then she aimed right at the target…Dottie.

I hope you enjoyed this chapter! Leave a comment down below how you feel about this new mysterious character and if you can’t wait for Chapter 4!

Novaer,

Saige’s “fixed” hair, Dual credit, YouTube, and the Truth about my Writing?

Greetings, Guys! It’s Kiki! Before, we start I want to say: sorry for not posting in awhile. I’ve been busy with other stuff recently. But I’m here now! So, let’s begin!

1. I fixed Saige’s hair. For good!

I don’t know if I’ve told you this before but Saige’s hair was really frizzy and knotted. I think it’s because Lily threw up on her 2 years ago. It was 3AM in the morning so I couldn’t give her hair the “proper” care it needed. Anyway, I used the straighten trick on her hair and it worked! The heat melted the frizz! Her hair is now soft and smells great (I washed her before I straightened it)! Now, here’s some pictures of her hair straight.

Next, I used the straw curls trick to curl her hair. I kept them in for a day and the curls really stay in!

2. Dual credit

My Mom brought up this subject to me a couple weeks ago. If you do not know what dual credit is, it’s where you’re in high school but you’re doing college courses at the same time. The idea intrigues me but it also scares me. If you are reading this and do dual credit, please comment down below what it’s like! Thank you!

3. YouTube

Yes, I’m thinking about making a channel! I’ve been making videos and trailers lately! It’s a lot of fun! But I need to make a new account and still haven’t thought of a name, so this idea is on the back burner, for now.
5. The truth about why I take forever to write stories finally comes out

I want to say that I will get writing TMVOT. The truth is: I’m a nervous writer. I get worried the grammar isn’t perfect or it sounds like a little kid wrote it. Because, somebody once said something like that about my work when I first started this blog. It was a wake up call to start writing better but I just wish it was said a little nicer. I mean I just started! Doll dimensions made a great point once: that it’s ok if your quality isn’t the greatest when you first start. It’s about having fun! I mean that’s why we blog, right? Down the road we’ll grow and mature and stuff. Also, don’t worry! It’s nobody here that said the thing about my writing, it’s a person in real life.

So, thank you for reading this post! It had some good news, real news, and just news in general!

Don’t forget to comment down below: if you do dual credit and anything else you want to say that is related to this post!

‘Till next time,

Winner of the Bracelets!

Welcome to another post! It’s Kiki! I hope you’ve had good week so far🙂 But before I start, I want to say that Chapter 3 of TMVOT is coming out very soon! And so is my first lyric photo-shoot! I’m super excited! Now, without further ado,

Update!

Hey, Guys! Kiki here! I’m finally back from Illinois and now at my Aunt’s house. I’ll post pictures of my trip soon! I didn’t exactly have a nice time but that’s a story for another time😉

Anyway, I’m here to update you on my bracelet giveaway! It ends Thursday(I think😜). So, don’t forget to enter! Click this link to!  https://cherrycola22.wordpress.com/2017/05/04/my-other-giveaway/

Bye, 

American Girl is listening!

Greetings, readers! It’s Kiki! I have the most exciting news! Read this from American Girl:

**An Important Update for Our Customers** 

“We love and appreciate our dedicated American Girl fan community, and we take our role in listening and responding to your feedback very seriously. In recent months, many of you have shared your thoughts on how we can continue delivering the great products you’ve come to expect from us. We’ve heard you, and we will be implementing two changes as a result.
“First, we will be reverting to the separate underwear design for all of our 18-inch dolls. Starting today, any dolls that are currently in production or any new dolls being developed will now come with removable underwear. Because there are dolls with permanent underwear already in the market, this will be a rolling change—meaning dolls that currently have the permanent underwear design will remain as is until the inventory is sold through.
“However, if you currently own an American Girl doll with the permanent underwear and are disappointed with the design, we will do a one-time, free body exchange on the doll to create one with separate underwear and return the doll to you at no cost. For details on this offer, please click here: http://bit.ly/2rKyn0n

“Second, we have made the decision to return to our iconic boutique box for our 18-inch dolls. Only the new 2017 contemporary characters, as well as some of our Truly Me dolls, will come in the current packaging until inventory is sold through. In addition, none of our 18-inch doll outfits will be sewn directly into packaging, with the exception of any existing inventory for our 2017 contemporary characters.

“Thank you for caring enough to share your candid and heartfelt opinions with us, and we are sorry if we disappointed you in any way. Your feedback helps us deliver on our promise to create high-quality products, services, and experiences that nourish a girl’s spirit and help develop her strength of character.
Can you believe it?! I was just praying to Hashem(God) about this! 

Well, thank you for reading this post! Don’t forget to comment down below your thoughts! 

Bye-bye permapanties, new box style, and sewn-in clothes!

My Travel plans!

Hullo! Kiki here! I hope you’ve had a great weekend 🙂 Mine has been a little hectic😜 

Anyway, I’m going to my Grandfathers house in Illinois. Its been over two years since I’ve seen his farm. So, I’m super excited! But I’m not just visiting him, I’m also visting, Rae and Skye! I can’t wait! I skype them every Tuesday and this Tuesday I’ll be seeing them! It’s crazy to think I haven’t seen them in over two years! 

I will be gone a week and have limited-to-no time to blog😔 My Grandfather has slow internet😕 But I will take tons of pictures! I’m also bringing a couple dolls so, I will be taking pictures for TMVOT and a Lyric photo-shoot I’m planning! So, make sure to stay tuned for all that😉 Now, I will show you my travel schedule so, you can understand my trip and how complex it is a little more 😄Let’s get started!

Monday(today): Leave to go to my Aunt’s house(my Aunt is coming with us). Which is a seven hour drive😧 I will be spending the night there.

Tuesday: Leave my Aunt’s house and drive to Rae and Skye’s house. Which, I also think is a seven hour drive and afterwards spend the night at a hotel.

Wednesday: Leave the hotel to go to my Grandfather’s farm. I don’t think the drive wil be terribly long.  Then arrive at his house in the evening and stay till Sunday(then we leave Monday morning). 

Like always, I hoped you enjoyed this post and thank you for reading! 

See ya next week! 

Reminiscing & Giveaway winner!

What’s up Guys? Kiki here! I expect that you all are pretty excited to see the winner but first -since it is my 1 year blogsversary- we’re going to reminisce for a second. Or two.😉

Here’s my first post.

img_7023-7

Wow. I seriously can’t believe it’s been one year. Time goes by so fast! I remember my first like and follower was Kaitlyn and my first comment was from my very nice Aunt. I would’ve never guessed that I’d be where I am now. I’ve grown so much and have found out my hidden talents and passions that I would’ve never thought of, if it wasn’t for blogging. I used to hate writing but now I want to write a book. I used to think photography was ok but now I want a camera and am considering that being my career. I didn’t used to know a thing about graphic design but now I know a ton and am also considering that being my career. My computer skills in general have greatly improved too. When I first started, Rae asked me for the link for this blog and I was like “How do you do that?”

I would say my faith has grown as well. I mean I’ve stood up for my beliefs a couple times and I’ve lost people who I thought were my friends. But because of that I found real friends 🙂  So, here’s a big shout out to the following: Rae, Abby, Doll dimensions(Grace), Kayla, and Skye! I really appreciate all of your comments, emails, and Skype calls! Now, since I’ve said my peace let’s get on to the winner!

Congratulations! I hope you have fun with Kamille! And if you don’t I’ll probably get a letter from her in the mail!😂 No, I’m kidding. Kamille is a sweet and loving doll. I blame myself for her self centered and mean attitude.

She’s also pretty! The contrast of her striking blue eyes and long black hair are unique! It’ll be a little weird to see her go but I know if I would’ve kept her I’d be preventing her from a girl who really loves her!
Thanks for reading this post!
