Collab With Emmie @ Diary Of A Daydreamer

Hey Everybody! Today I have a collab with the wonderful Emmie! *cue the fanfare* Yay! And also, I wanted to make anΒ Important AnnouncementΒ Β at the end of the post! And yes, it does have something to do with this!
Lets get started.

What blogger do you admire?
Yikes, this is a tough one – there are so many bloggers that I admire, and it’s hard to choose! But, one blogger that I admire is Madi from Life Undefeated, Madison Grace, and Delightful World of Dolls! She’s so strong and fights against her arthritis and really inspires me (we’re autoimmune disease buddies!) and her blogs are totally awesome. She’s so strong in her faith and an absolutely amazing writer and photographer!
Oh yes! I love Madi! She is so awesome!
What is your most favorite book of all time??
I actually have two favorite non-fiction books, and one favorite fiction: Kisses From Katie by Katie Davis is an incredible, inspiring, true story about how Katie went to Africa, adopted 13 children, and helps the village and preaches God to them. I want to be more like Katie! Another non-fiction fave is The Maddie Diaries by Maddie Ziegler – I featured that book in a recent post, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve reread it. It’s just so inspiring, and it’s her memoir about her life as a dancer, actress, model, fashion designer, and more! It’s so relaxing to read. And lastly, my favorite fiction book is 11 Before 12 by Lisa Greenwald – again, featured in a recent post, and it’s so summery and relaxing and I’ve reread it like four times.
Okay, that was 3. Oops…
Oh wow! I’d have to check these books out! And I think I read that post!
Why did you start your blog?

The story ofΒ howΒ I started my blog is super long and weird, butΒ whyΒ I started my first blog is actually pretty simple: I just wanted a creative outlet to post pictures of my dolls. When I started Diary of a Daydreamer, it was because I wanted to share my life and my ideas and creativity in a way that wasn’t limited to just dolls!

I think that is what I wanted when I started Middle Mary.

What is your favorite post you’ve posted so far?

On American Girl World, it’s actually a super recent one – it’s this photostory where my dolls, Tenney, Isabel, and Jade, are at camp and going on this ropes course, and it’s super fun and I had a lot of fun photographing it on my sister’s “ninja course” and background swapping all the pics to make it look like the woods. I actually haven’t published too many posts on DD – actually, only two, and one that’s scheduled for this Saturday – but I have sooo many ideas and things planned for future posts and posts lined up to be scheduled…I’m so happy it’s going great!

I know that one! My sister actually commented on that post! She just started blogging.

Mickey Or Minnie?

Mickey. He’s classic. (Also, Minnie kinda creeps me out, but not Mickey somehow.) πŸ˜›

Lol!Β 

What is your most favorite childhood memory?
My 7th birthday was amazing – I got to go to the AG store, two different malls, and I picked out Alexandra and a bunch of other things! I remember feeling so happy and excited.
AWE! I’ve been wanting to go to the AG Store for my birthday this year!
When did you decide to make a personal blog?

It’s pretty much always been in my mind since I discovered personal blogs. I knew it was a goal for me to have one, and I really started thinking about it this March. It took two months to figure out the name and make the design just perfect (I redid it several times before deciding on the ballerina one) and the blog tour took even longer to organize, but it’s finally up and running and I’m so happy!

 

Interesting! I think all I did was look up free feather pictures on google for my first blog design!Β 

Who is your favorite Christian Artist?

Definitely Hollyn – she’s amazing and I love her songs (except her new EP is kinda depressing. Funny how she got married and then released six breakup songs. XD) My favorites are classics, Hola, Lovely, and Alone! I’m also recently enjoying this insanely underrated Christian artist named Matthew Parker – Madi reccomended his album to me, and I really like it! Definitely check out his awesome music and show him some love!

Oooh! I know Hollyn! Me and my cousin listen to her all the time!Β 

Do you have any siblings?

Yeah – just one little sister (her blog name is Unicorn). She appears a lot in my Colorado Travel Diary series on Diary of a Daydreamer, and she’s been in a couple of posts on AGW. She also had this little blog about the family dog, Chewy, that is sooo cute! You can check it out here:Β https://chewysworldblog.wordpress.com. But a couple of months ago, she stopped posting and told me she “quit because Chewy wasn’t cooperating and it was getting boring and too much work.” XD Oh well, she’s nine.
Oh! I follow that blog! It was so cute!Β  Haha, lets hope my sister’s blogging Rein doesn’t end like that!

Now for the exciting news!

BALLET!!!!

Wow, now that I think about it, it doesn’t seem so interesting…

Anyway, That’s what I’m doing… Yay! Kinda. I’m super nervous! I only wanted to do tap & jazz, but the Lady said it like this:

You have to have a foundation before you do anything else. It’s kinda like prayer, you have to read the bible to be able to pray. A foundation.

Now that I think about it, it makes more sense. And from what I hear, this lady doesn’t play around. So I’m nervous and excited. Nexcited.Β 

Well, I guess it’s time to wrap up this 1,000 word post!

Bye Peoples!

A e s t h e t i c Antique Photography

Hola Mis Amigos! How nice of you to join me again! Recently, I went to an Antique store near Baton Rouge. We go there once in a blue moon, so it was nice to go there again. I actually got a new dresser from there! We had an awesome day, and I decided to show you some pictures! Also, I was feeling very Aesthetic today. Hence the title.

Let us began!

(Playlist: Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, By Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell )

Oh no darling
No wind, no rain
Or winters cold can stop me baby
‘Cause you are my goal
If you’re ever in trouble
I’ll be there on the double
Just send for me, oh baby,

Ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you babe

The End……

Which Picture was your favorite? What’s your go to playlist song? Have you ever went antiqueΒ shopping? What is one thing your thankful for?Β 

~ Newsboys ~

Sup my rad little rascals! (What did you call me?)Β  Today is some of my favorite songs. It is also funny. I LOVE Newsboys, they are some of my Favorite Artists. Let’s Take a look at the lyrics!

Shine

Dull as dirt,
You can’t assert
The kinda light that might persuade
A strict dictator to retire
Fire the army,
Teach the poor origami.
The truth is in,
The proof is when you hear your heart start asking
What’s my motivation?
And try as you may
There is no way
To explain the kinda change
That’d make an Eskimo renounce fur
That’d make a vegetarian barbecue hamster
Unless you can trace this about-face to a certain Sign
Shine.
Make ’em wonder whatcha got.
Make ’em wish that they were not
On the outside looking bored.
Shine.Let it shine before all men.
Let em see good works and then
Let em glorify the Lord.
Out of the shaker and onto the plate,
It isn’t karma it sure ain’t fate
That would make a deadhead sell his van
That would make a schizophrenic turn in his crayons
Oprah freaks
And science geeks
A rationale that shall excuse this strange behavior
When you let it Shine
You will inspire the kind of entire turnaround
That would make a bouncer take ballet
Even bouncers who are unhappy
But out of the glare
With nowhere to turn
You ain’t gonna learn it on “What’s my line?”
Shine.
Make ’em wonder whatcha got.
Make ’em wish that they were not
On the outside looking bored.
Shine.Let it shine before all men.
Let em see good works and then
Let em glorify the Lord.

Lol-ing Yet???? Guess not… Lets Try the breakfast song!

Hold the milk, put back the sugar
They are powerless to console
We’re gathered here to sprinkle ashes
From our late friend’s cereal bowl
Breakfast clubbers, say the motto
That he taught us to repeat:
“You will lose it in your gym class
If you wait till noon to eat”
Back when the chess club said our eggs were soft
Every Monday he’d say grace and hold our juice aloft
Oh, none of us knew his check-out time would come so soon
But before his brain stopped waving, he composed this tune:
When the toast has burned
And all the milk has turned
And Captain Crunch is waving farewell
When the Big One finds you
May this song remind you that
They don’t serve breakfast in hell
Breakfast clubbers dropped the hankie
Though to some our friend was odd
That day he bought those pine pajamas
His check was good with God
Those here without the Lord, how do you cope?
For this morning we don’t mourn like those who have no hope
Oh, rise up Fruit Loop lovers, sing out Sweet and Low
With spoons held high, we bid our brother Cheerio
When the toast has burned
And all the milk has turned
And Captain Crunch is waving farewell
When the Big One finds you
May this song remind you that
They don’t serve breakfast in hell
Any Thing?!?!?! Ugh. Let’s Try Another one!

Jonah

Up to my ears
In bitter tears.
Can’t believe I’ve sunk this low
As I walk the plankton
Inner sanctum.
Got outta Dodge,
Sailed on a bon-less
Bon voyage.
You said North,
I headed South.
Tossed overboard.
Good Lord, that’s a really large mouth
I’m sleeping with fishes here,
In the belly of the whale.
I’m highly nutritious here,
In the belly of the whale.
Bad food, lousy atmosphere.
I don’t want to bellyache.
How long is this gonna take?
Woke up this morning kinda blue,
Thinking through that age-old question:
How to exit a whale’s digestion?
It might behoove me to be heaved.
Head out like a human comet
Hmmm… I wonder what rhyme with comet.
I’m sleeping with fishes here,
In the belly of the whale.
I’m highly nutritious here,
In the belly of the whale.
I’m ready to reappear.
I don’t want to bellyache.
Lord, how long’s this gonna take?
End times, they come rolling around.
Enzymes, they come breaking us down to the core.
The good Lord grants we all get a second chance.
I’m one of the dishes here,
In the belly of the whale.
They say I’m delicious here,
In the belly of the whale.Lord, please make him chuck it all.
It’s a gut call
In the belly of the whale.
I’m in the belly of the whale.
In the belly of the whale.
I’m in the belly.
In the belly of the whale.
I’m in the belly of the whale.
In the belly of the whale.
I’m in the belly…
In the belly of the whale
In an underwater jail
It’s a tight squeeze.
It’s a-gettin’ to me,
But it’s roomier
Than the tail.
Hey, sailor,
Got my flow free
Like a salmon to the sea
From the L.A. Symphony.
I’m a paddle boat
Paddlin’ in their wake,
A fake free-styler,
But my unemployment pays.
I’m avoiding cliches
Like “whale of a tale” say
Or “you can’t keep
A good man down, ”
‘Cause you can
And I’ve been there, man.
But I’ve been expectorated.
I’m elated!
I’m free like Willie!
Happy Day!
Oops,
That’s a bit of a cliche.
In the belly Of a Whale…..
ANYTHING?!?!?
Β Uh Newsboys, Got any more songs?
Guess Not.
Comment Bellow if you Laughed!

I Just Need You.

By: Tobby Mac

When I’m up when I’m down (uh, huh)
When the wolves come around (tell me)
When my feet hit the ground
I just need, I just need You
On my darkest days (uh, huh)
When I’m losing faith (tell me)
No, it ain’t gon’ change
I just need, I just need You
Lord, I need You
Yeah, I just need You

 

Trust In You

By: Lauren Daigle

When You don’t move the mountains
I’m needing You to move
When You don’t part the waters
I wish I could walk through
When You don’t give the answers
As I cry out to You
I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in You

 

Brother

By: NEEDTOBREATH

Brother let me be your shelter
Never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call
When you’re low
Brother let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home

 

Hello My Name is….

By: Matthew West

Hello, my name is child of the one true king
I’ve been saved, I’ve been changed, and I have been set free
Amazing grace is the song I sing
Hello, my name is child of the one true king
I am no longer defined
By all the wreckage behind
The one who makes all things new
Has proven it’s true
Just take a look at my life
Hard Love
By: NEEDTOBREATH
Hold on tight a little longer
What don’t kill ya, makes ya stronger
Get back up, ’cause it’s a hard love
You can’t change without a fallout
It’s gon’ hurt, but don’t you slow down
Get back up, ’cause it’s a hard love
You know the situation can’t be right
And all you ever do is fight
But there’s a reason that the road is long
It takes some time to make your courage strong
HeadPhones

Whoa, whoa
Anytime you feel alone, put on your headphones
Love, love’s coming through your headphones
Anytime you feel alone, put on your headphones
Love, love’s coming through your headphones
Love is coming through your headphones
