54. Have a party, 58.) Have a Disney movie viewing party where are people need to “be our guests”, but it won’t be “under the sea” 88. Spa day

Well, with a somber heart, I begin this post. Today is Tuesday, August 13, the last day of summer. Also, with total sadness, I have to report that we didn’t finish all 101 things during this summer vacation. I guess life just gets in the way of things that really do matter. I apoligize on behalf of myself and Alicia for letting all 36,759 of you (or whatever) down. It’s sad to me to think that we had such high aspirations and we failed. 144 things were  a lot, but 101? Next summer, there will only be 50 things because it’s better to have quality over quantity, right? We don’t want to have a repeat of last year and for go bowling, we played wii bowling..that is not the point. The point it to enjoy everything we do and make people smile.

Now, yesterday, Monday, Alicia and a few of our friends came over to my house to get blog stuff done. However, what ended up happening is I made dinner (and it was delicious) and we sat around and enjoyed each others’ company. When we did decide to do stuff, it was 12:00 in the morning and well, it didn’t happen. So, I guess our little pow-wow could be considered a party because there were people, food, and enjoyment. I think that counts.

After our friends left the next morning, Alicia and I completed two blog items: the first was spa day, number 88. Spa day for us was using my Love Lettuce face mask from Lush Cosmetics and painting our nails.

The wonderous stuff that makes our faces amazingly soft and clean.

After, we painted our nails and didn’t take any photos. I picked a watermelon-y color and Alicia picked a sparkle-y red. When we finished our nails, we were going to have a Disney movie marathon, but, instead we watched Hercules on Netflix. It shocks me to think that as a young child I watched that movie. I know I hated it when I was little, but dang, it’s scary. All the freaking Disney movies are so scary. Like Sleeping Beauty. She gets cursed by a witch, goes somewhere she shouldn’t go and pricks her finger and almost dies. What the heck?!? Cinderella. She is a slave. Mistreated by her evil stepmother and then has to, with the help of her only mice friends, become a princess. Ok, maybe Cinderella isn’t that scary..but..Hercules was. The whole fighting scenes and Hades and Pain and Panic. How are young children able to sleep at night? Don’t get me wrong, I love Disney movies but dang.

Well, that’s all I have to say. Look for more posts later about the end of summer.

Much love and summer fun!

9. Make our LIFE BUCKET LIST (Alicia)

 

Hey guys, well, my life bucket list is still a work in progress, and even though at yearbook camp last week we were told “You shouldn’t have a bucket list, you shouldn’t even be thinking about kicking the bucket yet!” there is still a list (a very long one I might add) of things I have always wanted to do. So, I’ll share a few of the fun/ interesting ones

 

  • Visit all 50 States
  • Set foot on all Continents (minus Antartica, however if that ever happened, I’d be ever so happy)
  • Go zorbing
  • Take the cliche kicking of the Leaning Tower of Pisa photo
  • Ride a Gondola
  • Live in L.A. and NYC at some point
  • Take a gap year in between high school and college
  • Watch the Ball Drop in Times Square
  • Go to Hollywood
  • Road Trip across the country
  • SkyDive
  • Cliff Jump
  • Get a tattoo
  • See a Broadway Play
  • Study Abroad
  • Watch every single SpongeBob episode from start to finish
  • Build a legitamate sand castle, using buckets, seashells, and a cute flag on top

 

 

Well, there’s a few, there are so many more

 

Much Love and Summer Fun

1. Make a rainbow cake, 10. Make a fruit roll up fortune cookie, and 11. Make ice cream

Sorry for the delay with our posts, but don’t worry, we’ve been getting stuff done(ish).

Anyway, hello everyone. On Thursday, the freaking first day of August, we made a rainbow cake, fruit roll up fortune cookies, did the baby food challenge, we made ice cream, kept three balloons in the air for a minute, bobbed for apples, and we did the saltine cracker challenge. It was a day of delicious food and challenges, I guess.

The most surprising thing we’ve gotten done is the rainbow cake. I was really impressed because we honestly thought it was going to be a Pinterest fail–like all the other projects from Pinterest we’ve done. Though, it wasn’t. The cake was delicious (because how hard is it to screw up a cake from a box) and they looked like a rainbow.

We did an actual rainbow cake where the colors are all together in the cake pan and then we did a layered cake using a scone pan. We ended up just making a mess with the layered cake.

I believe while our cakes were cooking away, or at some point during the day, we made fruit roll up fortune cookies. They aren’t hard to make, but just really sticky. You need:
Fruit roll up
A cup or a cookie cutter (something in the shape of a circle)
Paper for the fortunes
A plate or something for you to put underneath the sticky fruit roll up so it won’t stick to your kitchen table.

Your first step is to take the cup or the cookie cutter to make a circle out of the fruit roll up. Make sure the fruit roll up is on a plate or something so it doesn’t stick.

See, after Alicia tried this, the fruit roll up got stuck to the table. We got it off though.

Once you have the circle, you place a fortune in the inside. I took a lined post-it note and cut on the lined part to make strips.

Fold the cookie either in half if you are lazy like me or like a real fortune cookie (your choice).

Enjoy!

So, I know for sure, after we made the cakes (sorry, going out of order), we made ice cream. Last year we made ice cream and that was the last time I made ice cream so we decided to make it again.

You need:
An ice cream maker of sorts
Heavy whipping cream
Another type of milk. Skim milk doesn’t work well but we used vanilla almond milk and it was so yummy.
Sugar
Vanilla extract.

Mix your ice cream base together and then pour into your ice cream maker.

Let churn for as long as your ice cream maker says.

So thrilled about having to churn the ice cream.

The finished product. The ice cream my maker makes is supposed to come out nice and smooth and it did. Yum.

A Sleepover of sorts

Well, Friday night, the day before the Dunes, Molly and I had a very fun sleepover, which consisted of us getting a few things done, one of which already has a post, but we were also able to complete 71.) Blindfold makeup challenge and 89.) Dip dye our hair (ish).

What we learned from these two things 1. When dip-dying/hair chalking our hair, darker colors work best, You could barely tell that my hair was purple, however you could tell the navy blue color was present in Molly’s hair, and neck :). And, that if you are going to do the blindfold makeup challenge, you really don’t want a girl who doesn’t wear makeup in general (me) and doing it at one in the morning makes it so much more fun, especially when we are half-asleep.

First, we hair-chalked our hair, Like I mentioned earlier, Molly used a navy-ish blue and mine was a pastelly- purple. What you do, if put the hair chalk applicator thing on your hair and on the other side of your hair put your thumb and then slide the applicator down your hair, and repeat.

And that’s that for hair chalking. As for the blindfold makeup challenge, we did one round of just eyeshadow, but then we realized that it’s no fun unless you have lipstick, mascara, blush etc. So we started over.

Molly went first, and being a makeup extraordinaire she had a pretty simple time other than getting lipstick on my teeth, and the fact that she picked a blush color that was much too dark for my skin tone, giving me an orange ring outlining my face, but totally quick fixes. I, on the other hand, had a much more difficult time, especially when I ended up applying mascara to her mouth because apparently her lips felt like an eye, it was late, and apparently I had lost my mind. My favorite though,was when Molly said “Why are you applying my lipstick vertically? It goes horizontally!” I had no idea I was doing it vertically in the first place, like I said, it was late, But I know it’s been killing you all to see what we looked like in the end, So, here we go.
