6 Things I Love to Do on the Weekends [REPOST]

A/N~Hey y’all! It’s Q’Zion! My goodness, was this Friday busy for me. But thank God that I have a three-day weekend since the 5th of September is Labor Day! Anyway, because tonight is the start of the weekend for me, I though I’d repost this list of things that I like to do to make the most of the end of each week. I hope you all enjoy it! ♡

Let’s face it–we all sigh with relief when we go home and/or get finished with work on a Friday. We have a whole 2 days ahead of us to relax and enjoy our weekend. Personally, I’m a HUGE FAN of my weekends, and I do as much work as I can throughout the week to make the most of every Saturday and Sunday. And since the weekend is coming up, I thought it’d be a cool idea to share some of the ways that I like to spend my short vacations. So what are we waiting for? Let’s get into it! 

⒈ Go to a Library ♡

Okay, so this one may be a little obvious since most of my followers know how much I love to read. However, reading is one of my favorite activities to do on a weekend. I have a whole 48 hours to start a new book or maybe even finish one that I’ve been procrastinating, for some time. Don’t you just love that feeling when you sat down and finished a book that you haven’t picked up in a while? I sure do!

 Binge My Favorite TV Show 

Throughout the week, it’s easy to forget about some of my favorite TV shows, or simply replace watching them with schoolwork, family time, and the occasional naps. When the weekend comes along, I usually spend a couple hours catching up on the new seasons of the shows that I love. And if a new movie just came out on Disney+, it’s not a surprise if we have a family movie night, too.

⒊ Go to Church ♡

One of the perfect ways to start my week and be refreshed before school starts on Monday is fellowshipping and learning the Word in the House of God. Praise and worship, seeing my family and friends, and socializing with other believers is always a blessing and one of the best parts of my week. It makes me feel happier and closer to God when I listen to His Word.

 Fun in the Sun at the Beach or Pool 

Due to COVID-19, it seriously has been a while since I’ve went to the beach or the pool. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that I love changing into my bathing suit and having some fun in the sun. Since spring is here, and summer is not too far from now, it’s the perfect time of year to hit the beach and go for a swim.

 Bake a New Recipe ♡

Although I don’t get in the kitchen often (at least not to cook or bake) Friday nights and weekends are the perfect opportunity to learn a new recipe and spend time with Goodmommy. For me, cooking can be so relaxing and satisfying. The fact that you can whip up some ingredients, place it in the oven, and take it out to see a masterpiece is always super rewarding. Especially when you get to eat your creation, when your all done.

 Have a Picnic ♡

Is it just me, or does this remind you of that one scene from Tom and Jerry? LOL 🍓🍉🌭🥤

Honestly, I’ve only been to a picnic once in my life, as far as I can recall. But I must say that I love to eat in nice weather, especially in a screened-in patio or on a balcony. You get to admire the sunshine while eating your lunch. Picnicking seems to be pretty similar and great for spring time. Especially on a weekend!


Weekends are a time for us to take a break from work and school and focus on family and the hobbies that we love the most. Therefore, we might as well make the most of every second. Hopefully, this list gave you some inspiration for how you can spend your short vacation.

What are some of your favorite ways to spend the weekends? Feel free to comment down below.

Have a beautiful weekend, everybody! God bless you all, and I will catch you next time! Peace in! ♡

Fun in the Sun Book Tag ☀️

I don’t know why, but today I just felt like writing about something book related–I just didn’t know what. That’s when I saw some of the summer book tags on WordPress Reader–and I really loved some of the prompts. But instead of doing a book tag that’s already been created, I decided to make my own: The Fun in the Sun Book Tag.

I find these types of posts super interesting to read, so I’m excited to share another one of my own. To check out my first book tag, you can click HERE. Otherwise, let’s get started!

Rules:

  • Provide a link to the original creator Princess Q’Zion @ajoyfulchristianteen
  • Reiterate this list of rules before your responses.
  • Answer each question with one of your favorite books.
  • Nominate some of your blogger friends.
  • Have fun!

1. Ice Cream: A Sweet Book

Although I haven’t read this one in a while–probably about 2 years–I remember really enjoying it. This short, lower middle grade novel is about a girl named Taylor who has recently moved to Roxbury Park. She decides to join a local Dog Club, which begins to face competition with a luxury dog groomer right across town. Meanwhile, she faces the struggles of being the “new girl” as she experiences bullying at school. Overall the plot is really simple and straight to the point. But the adorable dogs and long-lasting friendships make for a really short and sweet read.

2. Hydrangea: A Book with lots of Character Development

An intriguing trait of the Smile series is that it is based on the teenage years of the author, Raina Telgemeier. I think that automatically adds a lot of originality to this graphic novel. After she gets braces due to a sudden trip, she struggles with learning to love herself, becoming comfortable in her own skin, and identifying who her real friends are. In the end, she develops to be more confident in herself, and smile bigger than ever before. This is definitely a book that I would recommend for all tweens and teens; it’s one of my favorites to this day.

3. Starfish: A Book with a Unique Concept

Twintuition is a series authored by actress twin sisters Tia and Tamera Mowry about twin sisters–Cassie and Caitlyn. As the two city girls–who’ve lost their closeness over the years–move to a small town in the large state of Texas, they soon discover their newfound power to see the future when they touch another person. This is a really cute read that has diverse representations with a unique concept and a sweet delivery of the theme of sisterhood.

4. Airplane: A Book that Started off Slow but Rose Beyond Your Expectations

Recently, I wrote a book review of Witchlings, one of the newest additions to my bookshelf. After the initial introduction of the main characters, the plot seemed to lack in action for a little while. However, once the gears finally started spinning, and the pieces of the puzzle began to connect, this has easily become one of my favorite fantasy novels.

5. Blazing Sun: A Book that Takes Place in the Summer

Soon after I finished reading the first addition to this series, All Four Stars, I knew that I had to get the sequel. Although I’ve just began to continue reading The Stars of Summer after a long break, I’m loving it so far. Considering that it takes place on a summer camp, with the 12-year-old protagonist (Gladys) being a food critic for the New York Standard newspaper on a mission to find the most delicious hotdog in New York, I feel as though it’s the perfect story for the summer.

6. Roller Coaster: A Book that Gave You the Giggles

DOAWK is one of my favorite series from my early childhood, mainly because the author Jeff Kinney never holds back with all of the humor. In this book, Greg learns what it’s like not to have electronics (like in the olden days), when he goes to Hardscrabble Farms for a week, where everything is old-fashioned. Although this book doesn’t take place in the summer, it gives me summer camp vibes. Plus, it’s a great option if you want to read something that’ll keep you laughing.

7. Sandcastle: A Book that Feels like a Fairytale

Grimmtastic Girls is a series set in Grimmlandia, the residence of a large scale of modernized fairy tale characters, including Cinderella (who prefers to go by Cinda), Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Rapunzel, Gretel, Sleeping Beauty, Goldilocks, etc. While this is a book that I read years ago–therefore I recommend it for elementary schoolers–it was still a fairy tale with many modern twists that I really enjoyed.


I hope you all liked this Book Tag just as much as I did. But to be fair, any post relating to books is one of my favorites.

As for my nominees for my Fun in the Sun Book Tag, I choose EVERYONE who is has read this post to give this new tag a try. If you post these questions on your blog, please provide a link to the post in the comments. I would absolutely love to see all of your responses.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a beautiful and blessed day, and I’ll see you next time! ✨

5 Things to Do Outdoors in the Summer

If there’s any time to branch out and get a little outdoorsy, it’s while schools are out for summer break. Spending our time out in the nature while the weather is pleasant is one of the best ways to make the most of the season. Not to mention that being outdoors can do wonders for your overall mental health. And since June is Great Outdoors Month, I think we all need to have a little fun in the sun.

Here is a list of a few things that anyone can do OUTDOORS during the season of summer.

Go horseback riding

Learning how to ride a horse has been a desire of mine for years–and I still hope that I will do it someday. Horseback riding is also the perfect activity for the summer. Working with animals in the community is a great way to spend break if you are someone who enjoys being outdoors.

Try rock climbing–indoors or outdoors

Believe it or not, there are many organizations that serve rock climbing classes to people of all ages. I find summer one of the best times to take on a new hobby, and rock climbing is a really great option if you want to step out of the box. Plus, you can easily start training in an indoor rock climbing gym before you transition to climbing small hills and other real landforms with the permission and supervision of several adults, including your legal guardian(s).

Watch a movie outside

All you need is a projector, a translucent white screen, a few foldable chairs, family and friends, and some snacks, and you have set up an outdoor movie party. And just in case you like this idea, but want a cheaper alternative, many parks offer drive-in movies (or movies outdoors) for free during the summer. Just remember that if you decide to watch a movie in public to practice social distancing and have fun!

Visit a strawberry or cherry field

Some people may have goals on their summer bucket list that correlate to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. To keep fresh fruits in your diet, why not visit a strawberry or cherry field–or the field of any fruit that is currently thriving where you live–and go fruit picking? Not only will this activity get you outdoors and give you quality time with the ones you love, but you will also have a healthy, delicious reward to look forward to when you get back home.

Go canoeing

Maybe you want to spend some time in the water–why not go canoeing? Based on what I’ve heard, canoeing is an activity of teamwork and strength. Not to mention that it’s also a really good low-impact aerobic workout. If you plan on going camping this summer, canoeing could be a really good way to spend some extra time near your campsite on an uneventful day.


Being outdoors feels so good around this time of year–the weather is perfect, and we have every ounce of time on our hands. Instead of staying cooped up in the house all break, spending some time with mother nature is beneficial for your physical, mental, and spiritual health. Besides, no summer bucket list is complete without activities in the great outdoors.

LET’S CHAT~Does your family have any outdoor traditions for the summer? If not, is there any activity that you want to try during break? Feel free to comment down below.

Have a beautiful day, y’all! See you next time! ♡

8 Exciting Ways to Spend Your Spring Break

For most of us students, spring break is in session! Spring is one of my favorite seasons of the year. Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and colors are peeking through every nook and cranny of nature. But, besides the fact that we’re glad that we get a break from school, it can be dawning to figure out some exciting things to do with our family and friends to truly enjoy it.

Hence, here are 8 bloomazing ways to make your spring break one to remember for a lifetime!

Go to a Festival/Amusement Park

Spring offers the perfect weather for walking around, riding on rollercoasters, and eating fried foods. These are only some of the reasons why spring break is the perfect opportunity to give your favorite amusement park, or even a festival (such as the Strawberry Festival) a visit. Theme parks and fairs will bring smiles to your whole family.

Plant a Tree or Start Gardening

One of the best parts about this time of year is the beauty of nature all around us. We shouldn’t take this opportunity lightly; why not start gardening or plant a tree in your backyard? Not only are you giving back to your environment, but gardening can be a great way to maintain mental wellness and bond with those who we love. It’s a win-win!

Read Something New

If you have a reading goal or you just want to read more, this is a perfect opportunity to read a book; whether its one that you have been working on or have been wanting to read for a while. Books are a great way to give yourself some entertainment and learn a positive life lesson in the process.

Take a Hike

One of the best parts of spring is getting in-tune with nature. Hikes allow us to get a breath of fresh air, learn about species of plants and animals, meet new people, get some exercise, and maybe even make a new hobby. Nature walks, camping, and hiking are all amazing for the spring due to the gorgeous scenery and opportunities to learn about nature. And the best part is hiking is an activity that you can do as a family–a great way to spend spring break!

Get Ahead in School

Yes, I know. I might have gotten a couple of eye roles at this one. However, if you are a virtual student like myself, it is likely that you are able to work “ahead of pace,” even during spring and winter break. While I completely understand if you wouldn’t like to do so, you will likely be grateful when you’re taking your summer break early.

Catch Up on Your Favorite Series

With over a week until school resumes, we have plenty of time on our hands. And one of the best ways to spend any long break as such is by catching up on your favorite TV show. We all have those time when we miss a couple of episodes due to our other responsibilities. And while we should still fulfill our duties of our homes even while we’re on break, there’s nothing wrong with a little binging when we get some free time.

Do Some Family Spring Cleaning

Sure, cleaning might not sound like anything “exciting” to do during spring break, but it can be enjoyable if you are creative. For example, you could create your own cleaning playlist, have pillow fights with your siblings, or play The floor is lava while you are dusting. And that’s just a few options. Believe it or not, just about anything that we do can be fun–all we have to do is open our minds to new ways to have a good time while getting the job done.

Drive Around Your Neighborhood

Although we may think that we know everything there is to know about our neighborhoods, why not put that to the test? On those days when you want to get out of the house with family, it can be fun to simply drive around. You may just find a craft store, get a tasty treat at an ice cream shop, or even meet some new people who you’ve never seen before. And you can always sing your favorite tunes or play “I spy” in the car with your fam while you look around. There’s nothing like a mini road-trip.


Hopefully, these tips will definitely be a guide for some fun ways to spend your spring break. I hope that you and your family have a great time together as you embrace the wonderful weather and the overall beauty of the spring season.
