Cute animal photos!

Below are a bunch of random animal photos that I have come across on the web. :)

*I did not take any of these pictures myself, and do not take credit for any of them.*

That’s it for now. Just thought I would share these with you guys. Aren’t they adorable?! :)

Fun things to do this summer

Ever sat around wondering what to do on a lazy day?
Well, there’s no excuses for just sitting around anymore.
Get out there, and have some fun!

FUN THINGS TO DO THIS SUMMER:

1. Go for a hike somewhere; around a lake or by the mountains would be real nice!
2. Take your friends to the beach with you!
3. Give yourself a manicure/pedicure.
4. Get into a new sport. Take tennis lessons, or join a volleyball team. Sign up a friend as well!
5. Hit up an amusement park for a day of fun!
6. Tickle your taste buds. Try a new food dish of some kind!
7. Stop stressing over the small things in life! Take up a kickboxing class. It offers you a release, and you’ll feel 100x better!
8. Go for an evening bike ride. Usually after dinner is a good time to do so; it’s not dark yet, it’s not as hot, and the bugs aren’t so bad!
9. Check out awesome bargains at a second-hand store. You never know what you may come across. Sometimes they have wicked deals!
10. Have some friends over for a barbecue. After, have a water balloon fight to cool down!
11. Pack a picnic basket, and head to a near park!
12. Join an art class. You could sketch, paint, sculpt, and much more!
13. Start scrap-booking. Scrap-book everything you do this summer. It will last a lifetime!
14. Keep in touch with old friends. Write them a letter to let them know you still care!
15. Go to a game. Whether it’s a baseball game, a football game, or your younger brother’s soccer game, it’s fun to cheer a team on and watch them play!
16. Bake some cookies. You can share them with your friends and family.
17. Go camping! Even if you’re not into the outdoors, it’s always fun to be a little adventurous.
18. Visit a tourist spot near your home. Sometimes, if you’re living in a place for awhile, you forget the fun things to do around you!
19. Feeling creative? Make some jewelery (beaded bracelets, funky earrings, etc.) and sell them for charity…or, if you’d rather, keep them for yourself and rock them!
20. Make at least one new friend somehow. The more, the better, right?
21. Head out for the day and go white water rafting!
22. Have a bonfire and roast marshmallows.
23. Check out a sunrise/sunset. I personally enjoy watching them on the lake!
24. Try a new activity. Never been horseback riding?  What about bungee jumping, or scuba diving?
25. Find a waterfall, and swim at the bottom of it, if possible. It’s great for photos! If it’s not possible, just enjoy the beautiful view!
26. Play a game of frisbee golf with some friends. Super fun, and kind of challenging!!
27. Buy a hammock, and relax in the sun.
28. Play some bocce ball. A personal fave of mine!
29. Volunteer at a local animal shelter.
30. Lay on a blanket in your backyard, read an interesting book, and get a nice tan!

Hope you guys have a great summer. :o)

Great Quotes

Below are a few of my favorite quotes. :o)

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

We must become the change we want to see in this world.
Mahatma Gandhi

Well behaved women rarely make history.
Marilyn Monroe

….The way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it. – The Lion King
Rafikki

What you see depends on what you’re looking for.

A friend is someone who sees through you, and still enjoys the view.
Wilma Askinas

Life is 10% of what happens to me, and 90% of how i react to it.
John Maxwell

Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts. That’s what little girls are made of; the heck with sugar and spice!

The steeper the mountain, the harder the climb, the better the view from the finishing line!

Be a good listener. Your ears will never get you in trouble.
Frank Tyger

Never regret. If it’s good; it’s wonderful. If it’s bad, it’s experience.
Victoria Holt

When your dreams turn to dust…vacuum.
Desmond Tutu

The road to a friends house is never long.
Danish Proverb


I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right. You believe lies so that you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
Marilyn Monroe

This last one is a bit longer. It’s great though. I love it. :o)
Also, the author is unknown.

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–
You may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure turned inside out–
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit–
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.
–Unknown author

That’s all for now..

Cheers!,
