A Seriously Good Birthday Haul

Wait I'm sixteen?! Since when?!?!?!?

Hey Guys!!! Its been 2 days since my birthday (on the 26th) and I still feel fifteen. It just hasn't quite sunk in yet, but I am grateful for all of the presents I've received!! Thanks to all who gave me a present :) <3
This will probably be a lengthy post because of pictures, but hey! Pictures are pictures :D !!
 So this here cutie pie's name is "Mr. Bob". The tag says "Fable" but that's not a cool enough name, so Emma named it "Mr. Bob" This is Emma's gift to me (she bought it way back in like March, but I still love it to death!) (Also, I'm not sure which gender it is. . . Its a bit gender confused :P)
 These two nail polishes are from my younger brother, Ben. He had a fun time checking them out at the cashiers. . . He had to explain to the girl there that they were for my birthday and not for himself (haha!) I really really love these colors. The yellow is called "Lets Meet" and the baby blue is called "Cinderella" (fitting right?)
 Here is an mp3 from my dad. I already have one but its at least four years old now and is filling up fast. It works just fine, but I'm running out of music space, so this will be good for the extra stuff I download! 
This is a shampoo that my mom bought for me at Target. I was smelling it and it smelled really good so she bought it for me. I really like it. (It might be a sign that she bought me shampoo though... maybe I need to wash up better? JK)
 This cute basket full of stuff is from my great friend Audrey!!! Keep reading for details :)
 The basket contained this adorable gold metallic notebook in which we are currently keeping ideas for YouTube videos. It is really quite handy for jotting down ideas that suddenly just pop into your head!
 This here is a note card holder. I mean who can live without a note card holder?! It'll actually be quite useful because I'm still in high school and this past year I used up a good 5 packs of note cards. This will be good for keeping them, and its just so cute!!!
 This is a cute Vera Bradley wallet in the style "Paisley meets Plaid". It's quite small, but its for when I get my license!! I cannot wait to get it, all I have to do now is practice parallel parking and then I CAN DRIVEEEEE!!!!!! WHOO WHOOOTTT!
 Next is this adorable make up bag with a mirror inside, also from Vera Bradley. This design is called "Heather". I don't have very much make up so I'll probably use it for a variety of things. But it'll definitely be useful nonetheless!!!
And finally in the basket were these two sticky note pads. I really like that they have that cover, because it'll protect them from sticking to other things when I keep them in my bag. I can't wait to use them for school!!
 Last but not least, I got a note from Audrey and a card from my epic history teacher, Mr. Schulz. I will be forever grateful for their kind thoughts:)

So thank you again to the people who gave me presents for my 16th birthday! Luv ya!

Texas Review. . . Sorta.

Hey hey hey!! I hope you're having a good day! :)

So, I mentioned in my Moving House post that I was going to review the wonderful state of TEXAS!!! Then I realized that I don't know what sort of attitude I want to take on the review. Serious? or Sarcastic? or Funny? I don't know. This is probably due to the fact that I have very mixed feelings about the state and moving here. But I'll just write what I had in mind down below. You are welcome to read. (BTW I didn't bother finishing my thoughts so please don't be disappointed...

Are you ready? LEEEGGGOOOOO!!!!

What people say is "Everything is bigger in Texas". I think that this statement is half true. Or maybe everything is in proportion so it feels the same size. I noticed, though, that everything is rather more spread out. Excepting houses in neighborhoods, I saw that the land/ commercial area looked stretched out. (does that even make any sense?)

My sister did a post on Texas stereotypes if you want to go check that out at

But I feel like she made a point. Lots of people think that Texas has alot of country people, country music, and just COUNTRY/ a ranch vibe. The places I visited weren't at all like that. (Well actually some places were, but those were more like attraction areas.) The residential areas seemed... well, NORMAL.

Funny Story: We met this Chinese/Taiwanese guy at this Panda Express. I think he was the manager or something but he was so COOL. I'm gonna go back and say Hi :)

Summer Re-Do

So, I've been editing this post for a while now. I'm quite proud that I didn't just scrap it like so many others.. :P

Things have drastically changed since I shared my "Summer To-Do List". Like LIFE ALTERING things have happened. I was planning on a nice stay at home summer with a few side projects to work on. Yeah, well now were MOVING so.... WHICH for those of you who know me personally/ I have seen your face before...

PLEASE do NOT go publicizing this matter... Its a family/ personal thing... Basically I'm giving you a secret. Can I trust you?
(as I splash it all over the internet...)

Anywho, I figured, not many people read my blog posts. I can see how many views I get, so I can tell that it really is usually just like family and friends, so I should be okay.

I've decided that my summer needs a makeover. I need to trash some of my ideas and save em for later, and live summer like #YOLO. The Disney princess challenge thing was a GREAT idea that I haven't have time for and WON'T have time for, so that'll have to wait. I was also gonna try and get a job: well even if I got one ON my sixteenth birthday, I would only have like a month and a half before I had to leave. Besides, I have a camp coming up in July, so that job idea was kinda shaky in the first place. Instead, I'm gonna spend my summer getting ready and packing stuff (obviously...) and then set to work... uhhhh I'm actually not sure. I'm leaving this planning stuff up to my parents.

I definitely know Im gonna keep the make up challenge if I can, cuz I wanna give it a try. I'm not a big make up person, because... well I SUCK at putting the stuff on, so this'll be entertaining. I also know that I'm gonna get my drivers license before we move so when I do, STAY OFF THE ROADS!!!! Just kidding, I'll be careful not to run you over.

Well, thats it. Thanks for stopping by!

<3 Alexis

Moving House


So, I had this beautiful post planned out for like my review of the state of TEXAS. But then things happened. LOTS OF THINGS.

For starters, I found out that we're probably moving out to TX before school starts. Literally like this morning. Then I think I went through like the 5 stages of grief in like three hours. So now I'm just a little confused, but that's not really important to this post. I was expecting to move, but not before my junior year was over. And now I don't know what's going to happen.

Anyway. I'm writing a blog post about it, because I'm rubbish at telling people in person about this sort of thing. It makes me uncomfortable and I never know what to say or when to say it. So I'm just gonna put this up and see who reads it.

As for the review of the state, that will be coming later. And quite possibly a rant.

Well, G'Bye!!

PS When I say grief, I dont mean that this is necessarily a tragedy. I was just VERY VERY shocked. Like post traumatic stress...
