Hi everyone! I am so excited for this blog because I am going to tell you all about my vacation! I had tons of fun with my family and friends and I’m thrilled to tell you all about it!

One of the days we went to the beach. It was our first time going to the beach all season so we were all looking forward to that. This time, we had a NEW wagon! My dad got me a wagon to get on the beach, and its’ electric! The other wagon wasn’t that easy to get along on the beach, so we decided to get a new one. Which works a lot better. It goes along the sand really well, and my dad doesn’t get tired from pulling it. Anyways, the beach was a lot of fun! We stayed there until 5. Which is nice because by at least 3, people started leaving. Which means more room for us! Lol! I definitely recommend staying on the beach until at least 5 because then you’ll have the beach all to yourself because that’s when people start leaving!

Also, we went to the boardwalk. First me and my sister got henna tattoos. My sister got roses along her collarbone, and I got ocean waves on my collarbone! Then we went to get lemonade, my favorite drink at the boardwalk! After that, we went to buy fudge. We got two boxes full of fudge! It was delicious, lol.

A couple days that week we went to the pool too! The water was refreshing, and they played music.

Unfortunately we didn’t end up going on the boat, but it’s ok because we still had a really fun time! This coming weekend my cousin is coming down the shore with us, and I can’t wait to tell you all about it and all the things we’re going to do! Until next time my friends! 🙂

Hi everyone! This blog is a little bit of an update of what I will be doing the next couple weeks and weekends, which also is kind of a sneak peak of what will be in the next blog! But anyways, I am really looking forward to these next few weeks and weekends! I’m going to the beach for the whole day, I’m helping my mom-mom and pop-pop move, going to the boardwalk, renting a boat, and other things!

We will be going to the beach A LOT during vacation! My dad got a new wagon to get me on the beach and it’s electric.. So it will make it a lot easier to get around the beach. Also, we will be staying there for the whole day! I’ve never done that before so i’m really excited for it. So for the next blog I will make sure to take some good sunset pictures!

Also during vacation, my family and I will be going to the boardwalk. But, for a certain thing… Henna tattoos! I love henna’s! I got one last year and I am obsessed with them, so I am getting one again! And their lemonade, of course.

We will also be renting a boat! We have always wanted to rent a boat to go fishing, crabbing, etc! My dad is a big fisher so he was definitely on board with this idea. Also, with the boat we will be going to dinner, which will be really fun. I will make sure to take pictures while we do that too!

During vacation, we will also be helping my mom-mom and pop-pop unpack their things from their old house to their new one! I’m really excited for them because they have been wanting to move for awhile now, and I am very happy for them!

I am really looking forward to vacation, and I’m planning on taking a lot of pictures of everything!! I hope you’re excited too! Until next time my friends. 🙂

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a fun (and a safe) fourth of July. So much has happened recently and I’m so excited to tell you all of the details! Fourth of July, the cardboard boat race, going to the cafe almost everyday, and I got mouth surgery!

Recently I got some teeth removed. It was up to 8 teeth, Ouch! In order to get braces, I had to make more room in my mouth soo… I got them removed. The recovery process was a little painful but it will be worth it to have pearly whites! I’m getting braces this week which means I am a couple steps closer to perfect and straight teeth! Which I am super stoked for!

Another event… The Fourth of July! This year for the Fourth of July my family and I stayed home to watch the fireworks because we get a really good view of them from my house, which is always good. Let me know in the comments where you watched fireworks this year for the Fourth of July. Then afterwards, of course I had to run to Dunkin’ Donuts for a coffee! My favorite part, lol!

Every weekend that my family and I go down to the campground, almost everyday I go to the cafe in the village. Next to the campground there is a small area where there are mini shops, and one of them is The Garden Cafe. I get their coffee all of the time and it is amazing! The cafe has really good food too! If you come to Avalon Campground, I definitely recommend going to the Garden Cafe!

And finally, my favorite part…. The cardboard boat race. Every year Avalon Campground does a cardboard boat race, where everyone who signs up makes a boat out of only cardboard and duct tape, then they have to try and get across the pool without sinking.. Whoever makes it to the other side first wins! Every year I love to watch it and take videos and pictures. Also, at the end of the race they had the lifeguard and the activity director, Chris race against each other. The lifeguard lost but I think his boat was really good, and that he did very well!

This next coming week I am going to the beach with our friends from the Campground which will be so much fun! I haven’t been to the beach yet this season so I am very excited for that, and plus, we are going to be there all day! So now I can get some really good pictures for the next blog, so stay tuned! Until next time my friends! 🙂

Hello Everyone, the season finally started which means there is much to be done to prepare for summer! It’ll be a lot of hard work, but it will be worth it for a perfect summer! I’m really looking forward to summer this year! I’m hoping I can make it down to the beach more often. Also, this coming weekend is Memorial Day weekend which will be pretty fun to be down the shore!

This school year is almost over! “One more month,” I’ve been saying to myself everyday! I’ve been counting down the days until the very last day, June 18th.

Lately I have been doing a lot of cooking. It has become one of my favorite hobbies. Almost every night I help my mom with cooking dinner and it is always fun to do it with her. I have been getting really good at it according to my mom, but I try to practice often so I can get even better. If anyone has any recipe recommendations let me know in the comments because I’m always looking for new things to make!

Memorial Day weekend is coming, and summer! Everyone mark your calendars! Until next time my friends. 🙂

Hello everyone! Some people were wondering what my New Year’s Resolution was, and it was to not eat a lot of junk food. I hope everyone hasn’t broke their New Year’s Resolutions, I have. I just can’t keep myself away from the pantry, lol!

Anyways, it’s almost April and you know what that means… Opening day! Bikini season! Two more months, I can’t believe how fast time flies! I’m already counting down the days. Actually, I’ve been counting down since the day it closed, lol! But, not only is the opening day for the campground in April, but so is Easter! Easter is always one of my favorite times of year, one reason is because I love dying eggs. Also it’s in the springtime, which is one of my favorite seasons!

Lately I have been obsessing over candles! I love yankee candle, our candle company, and especially shore scents at the 15 unique shops at the Campground. I buy candles on amazon all of the time! I blow through so many votive candles everyday, but my mom doesn’t let me burn them in my room lol! My favorite scent is pink sands by Yankee Candle. My mom’s favorite is lemon lavender from Yankee Candle. If there are any candle scents you recommend from ANY brand, let me know in the comments!

Well, It’s the big countdown people, mark your calendars for opening day! I have already. Question: What is your favorite candle scent? Until next time my friends! 🙂

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone! Oh my goodness I can’t believe it’s 2018, already! I hope you all had a great Christmas and got everything you wanted!!

Christmas Eve was at my mom-mom’s house, as it is every year. Christmas Eve is always fun especially since we all wore ugly Christmas sweaters! Lol. We also stuffed our faces with amazing food! We all sat and watched a movie together called The Lego Batman Movie, I definitely recommend it, it is amazingly funny! Then, later we ended the night with some hot chocolate AND whipped cream!

Christmas Day, was at my house with my family. They all came to my house and once again stuffed our faces with my mom’s amazing food (and desserts of course!) Christmas gives us a lot of time to catch up on things with our family. And have a lot of laughs of course!

Aside from Christmas, thank you everyone for commenting on my last blog! I’ve been thinking of starting to end my blogs with a question, like in the last blog when I said, “What is your favorite Christmas cookie?” I want to do this because I think that will give you guys a chance to interact more with my blogs, and have a lot more fun with them!

Once again I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! Also, a happy New Year. What are some of your New Year’s resolutions? Until next time my friends! 🙂

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, but it’s December and you know what that means… Christmas! I am so excited for Christmas this year, these past couple weekends ago I went to a Christmas parade, put up my Christmas tree, and made plans for cookie day!

A couple weekends ago after Thanksgiving, there is a Christmas parade in my town. It’s a family tradition that we all get hot chocolate and go to the parade every year! We have never missed a year of the parades! Also, my cousin, aunt, and uncle always goes with us as well! Which is always fun! We made sure to get there very early so we could get a good spot, and we did. Once it started there were many beautiful lights, and characters like Deadpool, Spiderman, Paw patrol, Alvin and the Chipmunks and many more!

The parade was very fun and it gets better every year!A few days after the parade, me and my mom finally put up the Christmas tree. The day I have been waiting for since the week before Thanksgiving! Our Christmas tree is a green fluffed tree, with white twinkle lights, and the moment when we first put it up it really started to feel like Christmas.

Another family tradition, every year me, my mom, my sister, my mom-mom, my cousin, and my aunt all come to my house and make cookies. We do a shaped cookie, chocolate chip, and we choose a new one to make every year. It’s always fun to look on Pinterest and search new cookie recipes to find! So I am very excited to make cookies this year!

I am so stoked for Christmas, and making cookies soon! What is your favorite kind Christmas cookie? Until next time my friends! 🙂

Hello Everyone! I hope you all are having a good fall season so far.

Recently I started going to the orthodontist, and I got my spacers! So far it’s been going pretty good, a little pain in my teeth but I’ve been feeling a lot better! About a month ago, my dentist finally told me that I am ready to get braces. I started going to the orthodontist, I took a bunch of scans and molds and then we had to wait for a phone call. Once we got the phone call my mom and I had to go to the consultation.

When we went to the consultation, my orthodontist said that first I would have to get spacers for my teeth so they have enough room to put in my pallet stretcher, and then after I have my pallet stretcher I have to get four teeth removed. I have to get them removed because the places where they have to get removed have teeth in my gums that have not been able to come through yet. After that, I get my braces! So far I have gotten my spacers and I am really excited for braces because I have always had a gap between my two front teeth, and I am excited to get rid of it, LOL!

I also had my first NJHS meeting as a secretary! At my school there is a NJHS (aka National Junior Honor Society), all last year I was a member of the NJHS. I ran to become the secretary of the Executive Board and I won! So this year I am a secretary. Anyways, recently it was our first meeting until the 7th graders come into the group, and it went really well!

A lot of things have been happening at school and with the holidays as well! Thanksgiving is coming soon and Christmas! I’m already counting down the days LOL!

Everyone have a great Thanksgiving!! Until next time my friends! 🙂

Hello everyone! I hope everyone’s last days of summer were good, mine were. Where I live, recently there has been some “peeks” of fall weather so I am stoked for it to completely come to a head. After all, fall is my favorite season! Anywho, these past weekends have been so much fun! Halloween in August, the weather, and trying a new drink at the garden cafe.

One of the weekends were Halloween in August, I dressed up as… a watermelon!! Lol, me and my cousin dressed up together as fruit. My cousin was a grape, and I was a watermelon. The costumes were a lot of fun to make and we had tons of fun with getting all of the supplies to create this masterpiece! Plus, we got plenty of candy lol lol! I enjoyed seeing everyone else’s costumes and how they were made. Everyone did very well!

A couple weekends after it got really cool outside, which was great! I love that time of the season when it gets cool outside at the campground because then I can go to the cafe and get a nice, warm drink! Lol, I just love cool weather in general. Only because I can wear long sleeve shirts. A.k.a the most comfy clothes I’ve ever owned, LOL!

When I went to the little shops, something caught my eye, a poster on their window that said. “The pumpkin pie latte.” So of course the coffee obsession took over and I started drooling. I had to get one! I tried it and it was delicious!! 10/10 definitely recommend it!

I am not exactly sure what i’m going to be doing these next weekends, but the season is almost over! I don’t want it to end but I’m also really excited for next year! Also, I’m really excited for when the season ends because I’m gonna start posting after the season ends so you guys can keep up with me and what I’m doing during the holidays and more! Until next time my friends! 🙂

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great 4th of July vacation, I know I did! During the 4th of July I went to go see the fireworks at the Avalon Boardwalk, and there was a boat race down at the pool. Which of course I wanted to watch that!!

On the 4th of July, we went to the Avalon Boardwalk, when we got there we got our seats right away, since we got there early we had a great view of the fireworks! While we waited for them to start my friend and I went in the arcade, I got four stuffed animals! Lol. I have to admit the fireworks were a lot better than last year. There were different shapes and colors like a smiley face, and a hat! Once the fireworks were done on the way back to our cars our friend Greg played the “watch the train car please” on his phone! We were all cracking up laughing!!

Also during that weekend, there was a boat race by the pool, a campground activity where the kids would sign up to make a boat out of cardboard, and they have to try to make it across the pool to win! I was there to watch so I watched my friend and her parents make her boat! Once they finished making them it was time to hit the water!

Everyone got their boats lined up and once they started moving my friend’s boat sunk!! But once her boat sunk she just swam and pulled it behind her! she lost, BUT.. It doesn’t matter whether you win or not, it’s all about having fun and about the laughs! The person that won the race was a man that used the same boat that he uses every year! It looked like it was in such good condition, I was really impressed.

I had a lot of fun on 4th of July weekend, and I can’t wait for halloween in August. My cousin will be coming again! WOO! What will I be…. ? You’ll have to find out next blog! Until next time my friends! 🙂
