Life Update!!! #1 Pen Pals, Church, Baby Sisters, and Side Blogs.

Hey guys! How’s life? Just popping in for a quick (Ok, not so quick) life update post! This is my first time doing one of these posts, so I’m super excited! There is soooo much that has gone on that I would love to tell ya’ll about! So, let’s go!!!

Pen Pals

Keeping in touch with friends is a great thing to keep you busy during this time. Where I live, the mail seems to run MUCH faster than it used to. My pen pal from the retirement community and I have written a lot of letters back and forth! She is such a sweet lady!! I have also been writing, for over a year, to my other pen pal and BFF!!! Shout out to her!! (I know you’re reading this! 😊💖🤗*Hugs!*) Even though she is from my church, it is sooo much fun to write to each other! Letters let you have that conversation that you don’t get to have at church. She also has a lemonade stand that we go to every time it is open. It is GREAT to see her in person!!! (Hugs again!)

Church/ Zoom

I have been spending my Sunday and Wednesday nights Zooming with my youth group! On Sundays we are going through the book of John (In the bible), and on Wednesdays we are playing games. Some of the games we play are Reverse Charades, Taboo, and Scattergories. This won’t be going on for long, though, because…

WE ARE STARTING CHURCH BACK JUNE 14!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am SOOOOOOO excited!!! We are having Sunday morning church and Wednesday night bible study (for the youth). Sometime later, we will start Sunday evening back and do Bible study during that time and move our game time back to Wednesday. The sad thing is that we would have started VBS tonight. I am SO sad! I LOVE VBS! (I did not mean for that to be all caps) I was hoping to help with the little kids this year. Hopefully we will have it next year.

My Baby Sis

My baby sister is growing up soooo fast!! She is soo close to walking! She can stand up without holding on to anything, and sometimes she will move one foot forward! She has her top four front teeth in and her two bottom ones in too! She loves lemonade. She is SOO cute! Here are a few photos of her: (She wouldn’t let me get any of her standing up by herself- she LOVES any electronic device)

CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!
She LOVES sleeping with books!
She loves playing the piano!
Isn’t she CUTE?!?!
You can barely see those teeth!

Lrose5’s Poetry

So as some of you know, I started a side blog called Lrose5’s Poetry. I am posting my poems there. I am also starting a new series on there. So far, I have 24 followers! I would love if ya’ll would check it out! (and maybe give it a follow) I have posted 6 poems on there, and I hope to post MANY more!

Reacting to your assumptions about me!

Hi everyone! Today is the day I will react to you assumptions about me! I REALLY enjoyed doing this!Let’s get started!

Olivia

1. Your favorite color is blue?

You are correct! I LOVE the color blue!


2. You like nature?

Absolutely! My sisters and I play outside all the time.


3. You like the beach more than the mountains?

Yes! I love getting to swim every single day at the beach.

Magaidh Bryan

 I think you like your younger siblings

Yes! Absolutely!

I think you like dolls

Ehh. Not really, but I do have a cabbage patch doll that I still play with.😊

I think you’re definitely an extrovert

Definitely not! Sorry🙁 I am very quiet. 😊

Esther

1. Your favorite color is pink.

Nope. I do like pink though.


2. You want to have 3-5 children when you’re grown up.

Close. At least 5. I love having lots of siblings, so I want my kids to have lots of siblings!


3. You love all types of crafts.

Absolutely!


4. Your least favorite school subject is math.

Yes! I hate math. I used to like it, but then we switched curriculums and I didn’t like the curriculum.

Green Mountain Girl

Raegan 

1. You Love chocolate.

Yes! Specifically dark chocolate!


2. You don’t like hights.

Hmmm, I think it depends on the height. I don’t like really high things, but sometimes I won’t like it because I think it is dangerous. I don’t like ferris wheels. Not because of the height, but because I think it could crash and I would die. (Does that make sense?)


3. You love Disney.

Yes! They are soo much fun to write!

A

Kaelyn

Yes! LOVE it!


4. you like chocolate

Yep! Dark specifically.

Yes, but I like blue better.


Your family is very close to each other.

Yes. When I was little (even as young as 2 or 3 years old), my mom used to let me have markers and paper and scissors in my room during “rest time.” I was very responsible with all of them until the time I decided to give some of my stuffed animals and dolls haircuts. 😳

Vrose

The Little Things

Yesterday, my youth pastor and his family brought over a little gift for me. (The rest of the youth got one, too. Don’t think I’m their favorite. 😛)

It was a pink basket full of little, but meaningful things. There was:

  • A book called The Letter of Paul to the Galatians
  • A pen
  • Colored Pencils
  • A Sweet Apple scented candle
  • My favorite candy- Dark Chocolate Milky Ways!!!
  • A mug with the first letter of my name (I turned the mug sideways for privacy reasons)
  • One pack of hot coco
  • Some teas (One Green tea, two English Breakfasts, and three Orange and Spice.)

It was so sweet of them to take time out of their busy day to deliver a gift to 7-8 people. Guys, the little things matter! I encourage you to take time to write a letter, mail a gift, or even hand-deliver a gift to someone at your church, a friend, or even an elderly person. It doesn’t have to be big or elaborate. They WILL appreciate it! Have a great day!!

Have you done something for someone during this time? Has someone done something for you? Let me know in the comments!

Interview With Kaelyn @ Stuffed Stories !

Hi everyone! I am here today with my blogger friend, Kaelyn. She started a new(ish) side blog called Stuffed Stories! I am interviewing her about her about it. I don’t want to give anything away, so let’s go!

Hi Kaelyn, would you mind telling us some things about yourself?

 I am a Christian on fire for Jesus and I love Him more than anything. Being a Christian, is not just a religion for me, it is a true and beautiful friendship with a kind Savior. I also love to sing, blog, write, and read books in my spare time! I love being with my family and friends. I also enjoy choir, rock climbing, and acting.

What is Stuffed Stories about?

Stuffed Stories is about my stuffed animals stories and all of their different personalities, hobbies, likes, and dislikes. Stuffed Stories is a place where stories come to life and it is a place of fun and imagination. 

What was the inspiration for Stuffed Stories?

My inspiration was another stuffed animal blogger I know. Diamond @ BuildABearsFurever and I Have 12% of a Plan helped me see how fun and awesome stuffed animal blogging is. She showed me that it was also a great way to have fun doing creative writing and enjoy stuffed animals!! Thank you Diamond and shout-out to you friend. 

Why did you want to start a side blog?

I thought about maybe starting a side-blog and when I saw Diamond’s blog, stuffed animal blogging and well, I just knew that is what I wanted to do. I got great feedback on my main blog, Kaelyn’s Life, and my friends here on the blogsphere really helped to make it possible. 🙂 

What will you be posting about on Stuffed Stories? How often will you be posting?

I will be posting the stuffed animals back-stories, other adventures they have, fun crafts, music, and so much more. I plan to be posting about 2-3 times a week on there. 🙂 

Who is/ are the author/ authors of stuffed stories?

I am the author of Stuffed Stories but just about everything is from their perspectives as stuffies!! It is really fun to do. 🙂

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Thanks so much Kaelyn! I really learned more about Stuffed Stories! (I’m not lying!) Guys, Stuffed Stories is AWSOME! You guys should really go and check it out and give it a follow! Kaelyn is so sweet and her stuffies are the CUTEST!

Speaking of side blogs, I just started one! It’s called Lrose5’s Poetry. I’m up for blog tours(like this one). If you want to do one, comment below.

How it would work:

You comment the questions on my blog. (I wouldn’t approve it. That way, no one can see your questions.)

Then, I comment my answers on your blog. (You wouldn’t approve it. That way, no one can see my answers.)

Charity’s Questions

  1. If you had to wear a mask (not related to the virus) to hide your true identity, what would it look like? 

If it’s a full face mask, I’d wear a face mask of just a regular person. I wouldn’t want to stand out. I’m shy.

If it’s a coronavirus style mask, I would choose one that’s black, white, and pink polka dotted.

2. If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?

Invisibility. I always thought that it would be fun to sneak up on people!😛

3. Did you run out of toilet paper at anytime since the coronavirus pandemic? 

Nope.

4. How afraid are you of the coronavirus? 

I am afraid that it could go on forever and that we would always have to take extreme cation and never see friends again. 😭

5. Jesus was a Jew and participated in Jewish traditions, why is it that people have ham as the main course on Easter Sunday in honor of him?

I have no idea.

Three Things About Me

  1. I like to cross stitch.

Hi Kaelyn! Thanks so much for doing this guest post swap with me! Well, I won’t keep ya’ll waiting- Let’s Go!

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Clientmoji

Hey ya’ll!! My name is Kaelyn@Kaelyn’s life and Stuffed Stories! I am very excited to be here today on Lrose5’s amazing blog! She is such an incredible blogging friend and I am so thankful for her sweet friendship! I was so happy when she agreed to do the guest post swap with me!! Thanks for doing this with me, friend!! You can see the guest post that she wrote on my blog by going to my blog, Kaelyn’s Life, and there you can see her great post about blogging tips!!

Anyways, I am here today to talk to you about one of my fav. book series! I decided to start with the first book in this amazing series to review. 🙂

The Book of Three is such a good book in this series!! There are five books in this series starting with The Book of Three, The Black Cauldron, The Castle of Llyr, Taran Wanderer, and The High King. I have read this whole series by myself but currently we are reading these books out loud together as a family and we are on the second book.

So, onward to the review!! 😀

Meet The Author

Lloyd Chuddley Alexander was an influential American author of more than forty books, mostly fantasy novels for children and adolescents, as well as several adult books. His most famous contribution to the field of children’s literature is the fantasy series The Chronicles of Prydain. The concluding book of the series, The High King, was awarded the Newbery Medal in 1969. Alexander’s other books have also won the National Book Award and the American Book Award. He was also one of the creators of Cricket Magazine.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

The book series I will be talking about today is The Chronicles of Prydain! These books are filled with fantasy, adventure, and action that keeps you on your toes.

The Book of Three

The Book of Three (The Chronicles of Prydain Book 1): Alexander ...

Synopsis: Tarran wanted to be a hero, and looking after a pig wasn’t exactly heroic, even though Hen Wen was an oracular pig. But the day that Hen Wen vanished, Tarran was led into an enchanting and perilous world. With his band of followers, he confronted the Horned King and his terrible Cauldron-Born. These were the forces of evil, and only Hen Wen knew the secret of keeping the kingdom of Prydain safe from them. But who would find her first?

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

My Review:

I love this book!! The story starts with meeting Tarran and of course, the rambunctious pig, and Hen Wen. Tarran finds himself on an adventure of a life-time with friends and enemies on both sides. You grow to love Tarran, although he does complain sometimes, he really keeps his whole team together. How Tarran gets his group of warriors off to save the kingdom is something I will let you see if you decide to read these books. 😉

You see the aspects of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis throughout the book, and this book series could almost be Christian with its kingdom-based principles. You grow to love characters, dislike characters, meet friends, and lost them. This book has kingdoms and fantastical people and how Tarran confronts the Horned King and the evil Cauldron-Born is a spectacular story, for sure.

I would recommend this book series for ages 11 and up. 🙂 You may want to have a dictionary near-by, as some of the words can be hard to understand and the names can be hard to pronounce, so make sure you check with the pronunciation guide when needed. This book is a great series you can read on your own or it is a good read-aloud too, but you may need to keep younger audiences in mind.

My favorite book in this series is The Black Cauldron, and maybe I will write another review on why sometimes, or I may just let you read it for yourself. 😉

I would rate this book 4 or 4.5 stars out of 5 stars!! Highly recommend this whole series!!

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

If you have read this book or series, I would love to talk to you about it in the comments below and if you are going to read this book or series, I would love to to hear what you are thinking! 😀

Your local library most likely has this book or an e-book you can check out. You can alsoorder this book on Kindle, Amazon, or any local bookstore near you!!

Thanks again Lrose5 for letting me post on here!!

Happy Reading!!!

Comment below… Have you read this book? Do you want to read this book? Do you follow any of Kaelyn’s blogs?

50 Followers! (Game Time!)

(Sorry for the second post today)

Guys, guess what! I got to 50 followers! (I know you could already tell by the title) Thank you all soooo much! When I started this blog, I thought “If I could just get my family members to follow, I’ll be excited.” (Or something like that😀) I was deciding between a game or a post that gives stats for my comments, likes, and follows, but I figured the last one would be best for a one-year-blogiversary. Once again, thank you all soo much!💗😊🎉✨

*Have a cupcake!🧁*

*Air Hug! 🤗*

I got 47 WordPress followers and 4 email followers (Current tally: 51 followers)

Game time!

I have seen other bloggers do this for fun, but I decided to do this for 50 followers. It is……

What Are Your Assumptions About Me?

So it goes like this: You comment below and guess some things about me. (You can’t have any proof. Family, friends, this may be a little tricky, but I know you can do it.💗👍) For example, you might say, “I think you like to read fiction books.” or “I think you have a pet cat.” Then in another post, I give my answers to your assumptions. There is no limit on how many things you can guess, but if it gets too long, I may have to make it a two part series. (Personally, I think that would be fun.) Lets go!

I hope you all have a great week. And, thanks for 50 followers!

Comment below, along with your assumptions, how life is, what you have been doing for fun, and are you bored? Don’t worry, I love long comments.😉

P.S. I really wished I could name every one of my followers, but that would take too long. Just remember, I am very thankful for each and every one of you!
