Hey y'all, happy Friday. I will be honest this post was harder to start because to be honest I am just sad. I rarely let a lot of things effect me but recently several recent events have been weighing down on me and I am just sad. I felt like that is why it is important that I continue this blog and continue to find the happy and the good in the midst of the tragedies and evil in this sinful world. If you don't read anymore of this post, I hope you read this: Pray. There is power in prayer and God hears our cries. 

I do have several favorites from this past week to share with y'all that I am very excited to tell y'all about them! You will clearly be able to tell I have taken relaxing my last week of summer VERY seriously! Let's get started.

My Favorite Things This Week:

Y'all may or may not know how much I love listening to a sermon from Andy Stanleys church Northpoint every now and then but this speaker was incredible and had amazing visuals. Because of such a rough week, I found this very encouraging. There are still good people out there doing good things for the Lord and for the help of others. This is one man's life story about his history with photography and graphic design and how he is using it to change the world. You need to watch this. It isn't too long and shows that God has a plan for you even when you say you "can't".

Madame Secretary Season 3 on Netflix!!
My sister and I watched the first two seasons of this show on Netflix a while back but forgot to watch it when the third season came on live tv so we decided to wait until it came on Netflix and now it is there! We have decided to rewatch the show from the beginning but I am so excited to get to watching that third season. This show is bomb y'all!

Okay you guys. I am obsessed with this stupid thing. Like I really don't remember how I ever functioned without it honestly. My sister got the cutest Ivory Ella one too. There are a ton to match different phone cases and make life so much easier :)

Anne With an E on Netflix
My mom and I are working our way through Anne With an E on Netflix which is based off the Anne of Greengables movies which are our FAVS! This is just the sweetest show. The first episode was almost the length of a movie, but each additional episode after that is about 45 minutes long. I can't wait to finish it!

Jim Brickman Soothe Sleep Music
I have had a hard time sleeping the past couple of nights and have loved using the Amazon Music app to listen to this sound track by Jim Brickman. I used to fall asleep to a show on TV but found that it kept me up and I wasn't sleeping well and would always be tired the next day. Reading a good book and then turning on this music as I fall asleep is a much better option.

Everything Ree Drumond / The Pioneer Woman

Okay y'all I am obsessed with this lady. Everything about her makes me happy. Her show Pioneer Woman on the Food Network has been a favorite for a while because she shares such simple yet scrumptious looking recipes and always gives a look into her life on the farm with her sweet husband and kids... and of course her basset hounds (which are the real reason I watch the show.. jk.. but really). Ree's blog is also a HUGE favorite of mine. She has some really elaborate blog posts along with some simple one picture snippet of her life and I just love everything about it. I also may or may not have just gotten one of her children's books in the mail. It's an investment in my future classroom okay?? Don't judge!! ;)  

Favorite Moments This Past Week:

Bowling with Sister and Friends
It is always a blast hanging out with my two bffs!

Visiting my Sister at her Work!


Fashion Finds This Week:

I always love saving my "fun money" for a couple weeks or so to add a new adition to my Disney Pandora bracelet. This Cinderella Dress Charm is BEAUTIFUL!

Y'all I have LOVED this shirt from ROMWE. It is super cheap and I have gotten so many compliments on it! You need it too girl!

Y'all know I have loved the two different bow slides I have picked up from Target for only around 25$ and am SO happy they have a new variety of them too. These are a different brand from the other ones but look like they would be just as comfortable. SOMEONE GIVE ME A REASON NOT TO BUY THESE!

That is all for today y'all! I have enjoyed chatting with you, like always. Thank you so much for sweet encouraging emails. The fact that this little blog has brought strangers from around the world is crazy and I thank God every day for you. I will talk to again on Monday. Enjoy your weekend. Don't forget to be a bucket filler!

Dear High School Freshman Juliana,

This is college freshman Juliana writing you. Yes that means that you actually made it through high school. You didn't fail math. You came close a few times, but you graduated. You made it to the right classrooms on the first day, well most of them. I would say that in four years you won't walk in and sit down in the wrong class, but that would be a lie. Just roll with it girl. Don't worry about it, you still graduated.
Often times, the school work seemed challenging and you may not know exactly what you want to do with your life just yet but that's okay. Study hard, and give it you're all. No one else you're age really knows what they are going to do with their life either. Can I tell you something? Don't worry. That won't make it any better, and God has you. By the end of you're senior year, you will be wishing you pushed a little harder through the academics because you are going to be very passionate about learning and about a career. You're going to have big dreams and a great plan.
I'll give it to you girl, high school is going to be hard. It will possibly be the hardest and feel like the longest four years of your whole life. You are going to struggle with some health problems that will make you feel lonely. Can I tell you what will help with that though, since I have been through it? Don't worry. That won't make it any better, and God has you. 
You're also going to make new friends, and loose friends. This is normal. It is going to seem like everyone else has more friends than you but can I tell you something? They don't. Can I tell you something else? Don't worry. That won't make it any better, and God has you.
This year, you're going to discover who you're true friends are and you're going to rely on God and you're awesome family more than you have ever had to before. The physical, mental, and spiritual problems you faced to get you to that point will be difficult, but can I tell you something? Don't worry. That won't make it any better, and God has you. 
Juliana, high school is hard, but high school is short. When you graduate you are going to be immersed into an entire new world that is adulthood. It is tricky but amazing. You are going to see you're true life long friends grow along side of you as well as meet some amazing new people. It will be scary and nerve wracking, but it is going to be great. Trust me.
You're going to be so eager to go to school (I know it sounds crazy!), and you're going to be excited for your career one day. 
Enjoy being a teenager. Can I tell you something? Don't worry. It won't make it any better, and God has you. God has you're health, you're future, you're friends, you're plans, you're academics, and you're whole life in the palm of his hand. Pray hard and stop worrying. You're going to turn out okay. :)

Juliana Grace
Happy Monday everyone! I hope you are having a great start to the week. This top is just so comfortable and fun. This is my uniform for the summer :) Enjoy!

Have a great day everyone! Talk to you soon!

Happy Friday everyone! I had a small stomach bug last night, so I am taking a sick day, which is never fun. I am however working my way through F.R.I.E.N.D.S which is the best way to spend a day cooped up in bed. That and sharing all my favorite things with y'all! Let's do this!

My Favorite Things This Week:

United Kingdom Movie
This movie is absolutely AMAZING. I was so upset I never got to see it in theaters and was thrilled when my family rented it off Redbox! It is slightly hard to understand but so beautiful and touching.

Bachelorette Finale
This was one of the most confusing finales ever and I hated how the breakup with the runner-up completely overshadowed the proposal, which is always my favorite part. I personally was rooting for Bryan and think they make such a cute couple. But what were your thoughts on the finale?

My Favorite Moments This Week:

Animal Kingdom with my Sister!

My sister and I had so much fun at Animal Kingdom (our favorite Disney Park!) and you can see our video from our day on my YouTube here.

My Favorite Fashion Finds This Week:

What are y'alls favorite things recently? Talk to you again soon!

Happy Wednesday! Last night was an eventful one for sure. It was a mostly fun night full of skipping around Africa at Animal Kingdom with my sister, seeing incredible animals, and eating delicious food. However, our day concluded with my car breaking down on the side of the interstate. We are both okay and my car has already been fixed but wowza it was scary. I am so thankful God protected us and everything was taken care of. It really pays off to pray for your loved ones and your own safety as well y'all.

Before that craziness, my sister and I had a BLAST at Animal Kingdom. Check out the video below to catch a glimpse. In a few days, I will be doing an entire video and blog post on the new Pandora World they have there and can't wait to spend the day fully immersed in this new magic. For now, enjoy!

Also, my cute "Jambo" tee is from The Main Street Press and I get a thousand compliments on it every time I wear it to Animal Kingdom. Love them!

Have a great rest of your day! Talk to you again soon!

Happy Hump Day y'all! If you have read my blog for a split second you already know I love this place I call home. There is an endless amount of things to do here and I want to have a written list of everything I want to do! Here we go!

Wild Africa Trek
Y'all may or may not know that Animal Kingdom is my favorite Disney park by FAR! I love the animals and the great theme of this park. They have this super amazing experience called the Wild Africa Trek where you get a VIP tour and up close and personal encounters with the exotic wildlife of Africa. It is a rather expensive experience but it is a 3 hour trek which includes an amazing meal and great views and professional photos. This sounds right up my alley!

Hollywood Drive-In Golf
I am such a kid when it comes to putt-putt and I love courses that have great themes. This one at City Walk looks so fun!

Orlando Soccer Game
I am a sports junkie and love a good game but have never got into soccer. With Orlando having such a popular and great team right here, I really need to go!

Splitsville Luxury Lanes
This bowling alley at Disney Springs looks amazing! I love bowling as is so this experience would be incredible I'm sure.

Ride the Orlando Eye
I have been over near the Orlando Eye to go through the Madame Tussaud Museum but never went on and I think it would be so beautiful at night to get a view of downtown.

Volcano Bay
I have been driving past this place as they have been building it for the past couple of months and it looks AWESOME! 

Silver Moon Drive In Theater
Drive In Theaters are slowly dying out and I really want to go to one! This one near Orlando looks so cute!

Go Camping At Fort Wilderness
I am not a "camper" but Fort Wilderness which is owned by Disney is the definition of "glamping"! These cabins look SO beautiful!

Halloween Horror Nights
I am such a wimp and get scared so easily but I would eventually like to go to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal!

Play Whirly Ball
This looks like the hardest thing but looks crazy fun! It is a mix between bumper cars, lacrosse, and basketball. Whaaaaat?!?!?

Stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge

Again, y'all know I love Animal Kingdom and this resort is just stunning. There are African animals that come so close to your balcony and the theme of this resort is beautiful. 

What is on your bucket list? My travel bucket list is here. I will talk to you again soon!

Hiya pal! Happy Saturday. I have taken the week off of blogging to have some FUN and I can't wait to share all of it with you. These are my favorite types of posts because I get to share my favorite memories, fashion finds, and other random favs from the past week with y'all. Let's get on with this!

My Favorite Things This Week:

Disney World Annual Pass!
If you follow me on Instagram you already know this but my sister and I bought an annual pass to Disney World which we haven't had since we were kids. To say we are thrilled wouldn't even begin to describe it. I love living here!

My last post last week was a book recap, sharing every thing I have read in the past month or so and I have loved hearing on Instagram, some of y'alls book recommendations also. I thought I would update you though and let you know that I did finish "The Devil In Pew Number Sever" and can say it was INCREDIBLE. I can't believe that it is a true story that happened right here in America. It's a must read.

The Movie "RV"
My family watched this together and LAUGHED our BUTTS off! It was hilarious! You have to watch!

Favorite Moments This Past Week:

Spending time with my Momma!
My mom and I had big plans to go to a fashion show but plans changed a little bit and I really had the best time just driving around and eating dinner with my sweet Momma. It is rare that girls my age want to spend time with their mothers but mine is just the best! We have too much fun together and she always makes me laugh!

My Sister Playing in the Church Band!
My sister's church youth band got to lead worship for the whole church on Sunday and it was GREAT! She was so stinkin' cute up there with her guitar jammin out!

Going to Magic Kingdom
My sister and I have made two trips to Magic Kingdom this past week after getting our passes and boy has it been a blast. The first time we went during the day and we were SO hot. We definitely enjoyed last night better because it was a tad cooler. Check out my Instagram to follow along on our Disney adventures. Love this girl!

Favorite Fashion Finds:

I went to a local boutique and found the COMFIEST denim shorts and they were this brand. So stretchy and comfortable too.

Checkered Shorts
These are so stinkin' cute but run small! If you order them, make sure to order a size or two up.

Snow White Ears
How cute are these detailed mickey ears from this etsy shop? I can't wait to wear these in the parks.

That's about all I have to share today! Expect plenty of blog posts coming up this week. I will talk to you soon!
