Treasure Island- COMPLETE!!!

Hi all!
Do you remember how in this post here, how I was talking about my finishing Treasure Island no matter how long it took? Well, I finished it! I'm so glad, because I told myself that I wouldn't buy a new book until I had finished it. So now, I'm free!
I'm a bit of a committed reader. If I choose a difficult book for me to read, and I say that I'm going to read it, that is what I do. And usually, I will reward myself by buying a new book. It's the cycle of a bookaholic. However, I'm proud to call my self as such!
As for Treasure Island, it wasn't all that bad actually. It didn't have any storms on the high seas, so that was nice! I get bored with all of the details of storms. The story moved along at a good pace, the characters were believable, and the dialect throughout the story was very authentic. If you like pirate stories, then you should definitely read this book. As I mentioned before in my previous post about this book, I'm not one who loves stories about the sea and pirates, but even I could enjoy this book in part.
Have ever read Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson? What did you think of it?

Muscle Tee- Weekend Challenge

Hello everyone!
Today I wore this super cute new tee that I bought at Kohls. They were having a sale on tees and tanks, so I thought, why not take advantage of it? They have a lot of fun options, so go check it out!
This top may be pretty simple, but I absolutely love the quote on it-
So fun, right? My mom and I were talking about adding rhinestones to the word glitter, but I don't think that we'll get around to it. I like this top the way it is.
I was thinking that this message could be taken in a couple of ways- one, "Oh! I'm so girly and love sparkles and I eat glitter for breakfast!"
My personality is more the first. It could be fun to pair this muscle tee with a floral skirt and flats...
So this weekend, your challenge is to wear a muscle tee! What exactly is a muscle tee? It's basically a tee shirt that looks like the arms were cut off, leaving a wide strap on your shoulders. I just love these tops, and I hope to get more in the future! They'll keep me cool in the hot summer months ahead.
And if you don't have a muscle tee, then maybe you could consider making one. Just chop off the sleeves of an old tee shirt that could use an overhaul. I'd love to see what you come up with!
Send in your pictures of you in your muscle tee to
Talk to you soon!

Weekend Challenge Completed- Pain and Pitfalls

Hi everyone!
 So sorry that I haven't posted lately. I was planning on posting on Monday, but then I didn't have time, and it all spiraled from there. But today, I have some photos to share with you from this weekend's challenge!
In brief, I challenged you to wear something in honor of your pet this weekend. My dog Hunny is a cream standard poodle, so I wore a cream peasant blouse.

I hope that you completed the challenge as well!
Today was a bit of a rough day for me. I had a good day overall, but there were a few instances that weren't so pleasant. I had to wake up at 4:30 AM to get ready to go with my mom to take my brother to work, so that wasn't very fun. But it gave me time to complete my schoolwork early on!
Then this evening, my two sisters, my mom, and I went for a run around the park, and while we were stretching, Emma put her leg up in the air to stretch it, but when she brought it down, she slammed it into my face. I thought that I would have scratches on my face, but I don't think I do.
Then when we got home, I kinda fell in the yard and twisted me ankle. It feels OK right now, but I'm hoping that it won't hurt too badly tomorrow! But even though there were some harder patches today, I really did have a great day. Everyday is a gift from God, so I try to enjoy it! I hope that you had a great day as well.
