What's up?


Say hello to one of my favorite pairs of shoes--my gray Bearpaw shoes. *sniffle sniffle* I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!!! OK, OK, I'll tone it down a little. :D hehe Anyway, this post wasn't supposed to really be about shoes. Well, these shoes. These are like my favorite it's-cold-outside-so-let's-dig-this-awesome-slipper-style. ;) (And they're nice while writing, too. Does anybody else love how like wearing these kind of shoes is in style??? Man, I love whoever came up with these...)


lately
Yesterday I got to go to a fun card-making thing with my friends. Our book club leader did it for us--isn't that really sweet? And we got name tags. :) (That^ one was mine.... I can't believe I didn't totally mess up writing my own name haha :D) It was actually really fun wearing the name tags... until I forgot I was wearing it and went through all of bell choir with it on. Yeah, well, most of the girls who were in my book club were in the bell choir, and my hair was out, so you probably couldn't really see it, anyway. :) (I was just glad I hadn't worn it into the store... lol)


This is my super awesome devotional book that I got from my mom. I love this thing to pieces. It's so amazing, and the devos have helped me a lot, especially with this hard time that I'm going through. Some of them just seem like they were made for me... just on the right days... It's just so cool to see how God's speaking to me through this devotional. I'm so thankful that my mom got it for me. :)
books
Of course, books! These are all the new ones (that I wanted) that we just got at the library. Since I'm volunteering down in the kid's section, and I'm like one of the biggest readers down there (at least I usually check out the most books...), and since I was volunteering, I got first pick! I was so excited, I immediately picked out all the ones I thought looked interesting.

The purple one, if you can kind of see it (under "Mister Max and the Book of Lost Things" and "Fortunately, the Milk"), is the second book in the Land of Stories series, which I'd started earlier. (It's pretty good, and apparently the first book is a #1 New York Times bestseller...? I wouldn't have put it on that list, but it was a cute book...) "Fortunately, the Milk" was a cute, hilarious story that was like only 100 pages long--I finished in one sitting. :D But it was really cute, I really enjoyed it. (And the illustrations were great! :))

The blue one on the far right is "The Hypnotists", by Gordon Korman. (I've read a lot of his books and really like them. He wrote some of the 39 Clues books, too! Oh yeah. lol) I've just started reading that like last night or this morning (I don't remember which), and it's pretty interesting so far! As far as I can tell, there's not going to be anything bad in it... just nice and interesting. :) (It's about a boy, which sometimes I don't like, but Mr. Korman makes it interesting... *plus points*)

writing
Believe it or not, I've been a very bad writer lately. (*bad writer, BAD!*) But I've got lots of ideas rolling around in my head... (Which includes a redo of the Dragonmasters. Can I get a loud YES?!) And this new magic story, which I'm really excited about. (I'm kind of combining two older stories and lots of magic ideas... yes, I'm excited. :)) I've also been enjoying my super awesome writing notebook... (Pictured above.) Which I showed you before...

Other then that, I've been gleaning information and trading and swapping ideas with a friend of mine. (Well, not really swapping and trading. Just talking. :) Hers is amazingly awesome, let me tell you...) And, believe it or not, I've been getting ideas from my history book. OK, that's just strange... (Yeah! Like for my really awesome story that I haven't told you about yet because I'm afraid I'm going to jinx it! And my Dragonmaster story! Oh yeah. hehe)

 more books
Didn't see that coming, eh? ;D Here are some more books I'd checked out before... mostly older books that had been at the library before. Anybody read these? Any thoughts...?
and last but certainly not least
My awesome shoes that my grandma bought me. :) Aren't they cute? I love them. <3

Hope you guys are all having a great day! God bless! :)

Be a hero,
Anna

P.S. I'm going to be changing my pinterest username to letyourfearflyfree, I think. Last time for input... ;)

  1. Hi!
    I just found your blog, but i just wanted to say that I love those shoes your grandma got you! I tried on the exact same pair (or very similar ones) at the shoe store. Too bad I didn't buy them,... :)

  2. I was wondering how you find good books at the library. Whenever I just grab a book it turns out to be trash. Either poorly written or the content is... not good... you know what I mean. :P Do you have a list of good books? That a library will have :)

    Just Wondering.

    1. Oh, I so know what you mean! Usually, at least one book I get from the library turns out be a stinker. =P But my big secret is that I'm always in the kid section. Usually all of the books written for girls our age are full of junk that we shouldn't be reading. But since the books in the kid section are meant for younger kids (like pre-teen range, sometimes younger, it depends...), they won't be as bad. Some authors that I've enjoyed are Gordon Korman, Margaret Peterson Haddix (she writes books for older kids, but I haven't read a "bad" one yet), and few others that I can't think of right now. =P Don't write off something because it seems little; sometimes the best stories come in the form of children's stories. I'm sure you can find a real gem. :)

      Some books I've enjoyed:
      The 39 Clues Series (though they take God's name in vain a few times, but not bad...)
      The Legend of Penhaligon Brush
      War Horse
      Princess Academy (the author of this book is Shannon Hale, and she also has some other pretty good books, though they're most likely in the young adult)
      The Codebearers' Series

      If you need any more ideas for books, I'm sure I can come up with some! :)

    2. Hannah,
      My older sister and I both just stay in the kids section. :-D Here are a few authors that are in the kids section that you could try:
      Louisa M. Alcott, Loyd Alexander, C. S. Lewis, and Lemony Snicket. Those are some that I can come up with off of the top of my head. If you would like some Adult books you can try Charles Dickens (Which I don't personally like but my older sister loves them) Jane Austen, and Anne, Charlotte and Jane Bronte. Anne, Charlotte and Jane Bronte write novels. Some are pretty intense but nothing bad. Some of my favorites by them are, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Jane Erye, Agnes Grey, and Villette (Has a lot of French in it).
      I know you didn't ask me for book references but I thought I would share....

    3. Yes! I'm almost always in the children's section :) Thank you! I loved the War horse; book and movie :) And Jane Eyre, Lemony Snickett, C.S. Lewis, and a few other authors/ books you mentioned. But, I will definitely look into the others you mentioned!

      Thanks again!

  7. Hey Anna,
    Yes, I would love to be added to your prayer list. I need all the prayer I can get! And how can I be praying for you? I have a prayer team and would love to partner with you (keep you regularly updated with my prayer needs, and regularly pray for yours). If you are interested in partnering with me in prayer, my e-mail is on my Prayer Request page on my blog and shoot me an email! I would love to subscribe you to my regular missionary Newsletter if you're interested as well. :) I love how the internet provides awesome God-connections like this! We would (probably) never have known each other in real life so this is totally awesome! God bless...

    In His Service,
    Hannah Boyd

    1. OK, awesome! :) I'll put you up. :) My dad has cancer right now, so it would be amazing if you could pray for him. And just for me that God will help me, because I'm going through a lot of my own struggles right now.
