My Summer Vacation

I have no idea what to write about anymore and that is why I don't update as much. When I'm on vacation I don't do much except watch TV/movies and read books. When I'm in school I do the same as well as going to school and completing assignments. So I have no life, basically.

I haven't tried to post since July 31, the day I wrote the four sentences above. And the tiny draft that wasn't posted is still true to this day... I want to blog, but I have no idea what I want to blog about. So, for today I'll update you with what I did these past few months. July/August consisted of books and TV/movies daily, it was getting boring. So, nearing the end of August my parents decided to go to Mexico and asked me if I wanted to tag along. Obviously, I took their offer and on August 27 we got on a plane and headed down to Mexico. We were there for three weeks, which was great because the town my parents are from has a certain celebration that lasts an entire week, but the weeks before it everyone is getting ready and enjoying themselves. So I got to be there and enjoy the town and my family while it was calm and then the last week was spent with an entire town of people. That may sound awful, but it's one of those moments when you just want the whole world to experience it (the more the merrier type of complex) because fun things were occurring. For example a large greased up pole was mounted in front of the town square and people would try to climb it to get what was on the tippy-top (that was a game they did one afternoon). That same afternoon my parents and I went to see a fireworks display that they do every year. I wish you could all see the display, but videos don't do it justice and we can't all fly there just to see fireworks. I loved it because the fireworks were mounted on a Castle type display were each row or column of it had different fireworks and at the top the fireworks got bigger and brighter and the lights from the fireworks would fall to the floor in large quantities making it seem as if the stars where coming down to earth (magical)! I actually did a lot and I wrote a journal while I was there so I might just post a few things I have written down since there is so much more that I want to share, but that will be on a different post since this one is already to long. I also want to share pictures even though there won't be many, but I want to try. Anyways we came back the last week of September since I started school that Thursday and so now I've been in school for a bit more than two weeks.  So that's what I've been up to, here are a few pictures I have near me of the trip...
Most of the pictures were taken by my little cousins so, I'll show what I can which isn't much. This first picture was taken one of the first days when I went to visit my grandma. I look so amused, or NOT.

It was avocado season so I made lots of guacamole, until I couldn't finish the last batch and had to stop.
Here's the town square, full of people waiting to see the Vigin Mary who is taken around the square for everyone to see.
My cousin came over and we had a sleep over so as usual we took pictures of our funny faces.
On the second to last day, I rode my aunts and uncles horse which he wasn't to happy about.

And I wasn't to happy about coming back, I miss my town. I'll be back there soon enough, but for now I'll share stories and more pictures of this trip. 
I'll share those soon,

June Favorites

I have never done a "monthly favorites" post, but I want to start blogging more now that I am on vacation and I thought I would start at the beginning of the month with something simple and new to my blog. The following things are not in any particular order.

I have been in love with sweet tea for some reason these past few months and I found that the Walmart brand is my favorite out of all the iced tea gallons they have. I tend to buy two pairs of gallons each Sunday in order for me to drink tea throughout the week.

FAVORITE #2: Large McDonald's Iced Sweet Tea
McDonald's has their $1 any size drink deal once again and I am taking full advantage of this. When I was in high school my best friend and I would go to McDonald's and buy the largest cup of sweet iced tea from McDonald's and just drive around in his car drinking this glorious beverage and I still love their iced tea now and buy it whenever my sister and I go out on a hot day. 

FAVORITE #3: Silly Straw Mason Jar 
I also bought this a while back, but I fell in love instantly. I went to Dollar Tree and found these and I loved how it looked that I ended up buying a green one (now I wish I would have bought all the colors and then some). It is my favorite cup now and I tend to drink my sweet tea from this all the time. I also love that on the times when I have dropped it and it was full of tea, only a few drops fell out of the top instead of the entire thing spilling. I can't explain why, but I am IN LOVE with this cup and I really do wish I had more than one.

FAVORITE #4: Irregular Jelly Beans
My mouth is literally watering right now. During the beginning of June I was still in school and since that's typically around the time when we have huge projects, I was always at school working on assignments. So, I bought a bunch of bags of Belly Flops and I would sit behind the computer and edit videos while I ate jelly beans as a quick and small snack. Even after I finished all my projects and started my vacation I am obsessed with these packs of jelly beans. 

FAVORITE #5: Supernatural
Another thing that happens to me while I am about to finish school is that I get hooked on something (an app, a song, a hobby, a show, etc.) and once again I got hooked on something. I wanted to watch this show since it first started years ago, but I shared a TV with my sister and brother and they hate "scary" shows/movies/anything. So, I finally decided to watch the show especially since I knew I was going to be on a 3 month vacation after I was done. And let me just say I love it and I am obsessed I am already on Season 5 (I try not to binge watch because I don't want them to be over so soon). Although, I know I have to be done before October 7 because that's when Season 10 starts.  

FAVORITE #6: Straw Sandals
I bought 6 different pairs of these types of sandals about two months ago and I have been wearing them nonstop ever since I graduated, it's hot here in California so I just want to lounge around my house in these comfy pair of shoes. I think I'm on my third pair, two other pairs already ripped. The first pair (red ones) ripped the day I went to Dollar Tree and got my awesome cup, my brother actually stepped on one of them while we were walking in and so I walked through the store with a ripped sandal. Then the second pair (orange ones) ripped at the beginning of June when my brother and nephew stepped on my sandals. Now I am wearing a pair of gold sandals which look great with black nail polish.

I CAN'T REMEMBER IF THERE IS ANYTHING ELSE! If I remember I'll let you all know in another post.

I am about to go somewhere with my brother and sister (maybe the park) so I will talk to you all soon.
