24. Go to the zoo & 51. Do yoga.

Standard

Hello!

Third day in a row– impressive! Haha, not quite. But still cool?

This morning I began my day with waking up to my dog barking constantly at nothing outside the window… at 7:15am. Joyful! So I got up and walked the dog (again) and headed off to go and work out. Once I got to the gym, I immediately turned around because I saw people I know. I HATE seeing people I know at the gym, so I turned around and went home. I decided that I could try and cross something off my list in the struggle of a morning. I found a Yoga clip on Netflix! It was about 40 minutes long, and it wasn’t too horrible. It was a mix between Yoga and Pilates, so I did a little more moving than regular Yoga… which is good. I might have gotten super bored instead. I don’t know, it was pretty decent, but that’s all I have to say about it, haha.

Anyways. After that, Maddi, Mara and I ventured off to Como Zoo! It was excellent!

Hardtimes.

Struggle.

So, we had some hard times getting there. From bad directions (Thanks Google Maps!) to crazy drivers to traffic to construction zones… it was quite the adventure. Once we arrived, we ventured to the conservatory!

Flowers!

Pretty in pink.

And yellow!

Pretty, pretty. Then we went to the actual zoo part of the park… and saw some excellent animalssss.

Orangutans!

There was a baby Orangutan! He was playing with a sheet… and it was adorable:)

Zebraaassss.

Stripey horses. Kind of odd to watch, because they’re so similar to horses.

Giraffes.

Maddi and I think the one in the middle was a young one, he was a lot smaller than the others. The big one was like 15 feet tall!

Flamingo.

Did you know that they get more pink with how much shrimp they eat? Yep!

So that was the adventure to the zoo. We went to McDonald’s for ice cream cones, and then we all went home. I went home for dinner, and then went to Tucker’s! His fam just got a new car, which they’re all excited about. We took it to Walgreen’s so I could feed the nailpolish addiction. (Also, I found $25 in change in my room…) So I ended up with a glitter, a top coat, a royal blue, and a mint green, which I am all very excited for! Later, we enjoyed some quality Better Off Ted.

Love always, Amelia

4. Spend a whole day at the lake, 52. Get a tan, 56. Try an exotic food, 63. Jump in a lake, 68. Go bowling, & 85. Have a water fight.

Standard

Wow, I have posted in a very long time. I apologize for that… but this post should (in theory) be really awesome.

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve completed a very large amount of things in these past few days., which I will attempt to address in chronological order.

First, Mara has arrived! I have spent a number of fantastical days enjoying her and Maddi’s company. The best thing we’ve done (in my opinion) is when we MADE Goldfish crackers! They were so good. That same evening, Mara taught us how to make fritos, which is a type of pinxto or tapa. It’s typically eaten a traditional Spanish appetizer. Essentially it’s dough and chicken mixed together, rolled into balls, covered in bread crumbs, and then fried. It was very good!

Yum!

Goldfish and Fritos!

So that was my exotic food of the summer.

That, of course, what quite some time ago.

On the Second of July, it was the lovely Miss Trisha and Miss Vanessa’s birthday! They are my twinner friends, and I believe this is the first I have written about them. They are hysterical, and quite possibly the most photogenic (and prettiest!) people I know. Anyways, we went out to eat at Macaroni Grill, and then went bowling! Exceptionally fun… and I won!

Dinner

Dinner with the ladies.

Bowling Birthday

Game 1: 118, Game 2: 121. BOOM.

(Bottom Picture: Vanessa, Sophie, Myself, Trisha, Rochelle, Vanessa, Nicole… so just you know who the heck these people are.)

On the Fourth of July, Tucker and I journeyed to his cabin! About an hour and a half away from his house, we drove up there very early in the morning. He “surprised” me by having me meet all of his cousins and his aunt and uncle… He told me right when we were pulling up… Thanks Tuck-tuck. Not that it wasn’t lovely, I just would have appreciated some warning! Haha, still excellent. We spent the whole day on the lake, enjoying a boat ride, water fights, and the neighbors water-trampoline. (Shhh!)

Cabin.

Lake Time!

I swear we’re both wearing clothes. I promise.

There were a gazillion BEAUTIFUL and HUGE houses on the lake (not that Tucker’s wasn’t adorable… it was!), but I was very impressed. Anyways, this checks off the spend a whole day at the lake, jump in a lake (many times!), and have a water fight (which I conceded, unfortunately). This ALSO includes getting a tan! Yay:) My sunburn from Kansas finally went away, and I just continued the tan. Poor Tucker got super sunburned:( It shall go away soon!

Yeah, I’ve had this written for a few days, I’ve just been to lazy to get my photos off of my camera (my SD card slot thing is screwed up so everything is much more difficult) and I know I’m being a bad blogger, so I promise I will get better!

Please forgive me, blog gods.

Love always, Amelia

PS. So… I have a new obsession. Nailpolish, and lots of it. I’ve been painting and repainting my nails like 4 times a day and it’s kind of great. So if you’d like to join in the fun, check out this blog I’ve been enjoying: thedailyvarnish.com! :) So I’m thinking after this blog ends, I might start one similar. That is, if I continue enjoying the nailpolish. Of course, actual readers might be a problem too. Would anyone actual read it? Probably not. Would more people read that than this blog? Probably. It may or may not be worth it. I dunno!
