This is the Life | Go Out With Me #3

✨What’s up, y’all? I hope you are having a FANTASTIC day! ✨

Earlier this afternoon me and Goodmommy had a wonderful day out for errands, and just a little bit of shopping, too. Considering that we had such an amazing time, I want to share what we did, and what we got, with you all. So let’s get started!

The selfies that I take with Goodmommy are always some of my favorites. Having mother and daughter bonding time is always a blessing from God. Although we don’t go out super often, we always make the most of the time that we get to spend together. But honestly, we have lots of fun together with laughter, love, and peace no matter where we are! Thank you, Jesus!

Has anyone decorated their home for Easter, yet? It’s honestly hard to believe that Easter Sunday is next week. But time flies by when you’re having fun, and I definitely am. What I love about Easter decorations is that they’re so colorful. Pastel is one of my favorite color schemes, so Easter is the perfect time to make our homes a little brighter!

I saw a gorgeous body of water, so of course I had to take advantage of the scenery with a quick picture. I thank God for letting me get such a good shot! Nature is so beautiful, isn’t it?

What can I say? I love to take selfies! And you know I’m very creative. :))

Before we went home, we decided to stop at one of our favorite stores–Five Below. Ever since this store opened up, I’ve been OBSESSED! Literally everything in the store is $5 or less, which is incredibly affordable. And on top of that, the inventory is pretty long-lasting, too. Since we were on the right side of town already, it was the perfect opportunity to take a look around.

One of my favorite purchases was this “accessories organizer box.” I tend to have a lot of chargers, cables, and electronics in general, so having a box like this one to keep everything organized and in its designated place is a huge help: especially when we decide to go on a short vacation.

Since I decided to get a new organizer, Goodmommy asked if she could have my old one, and I was happy to agree. I had already customized the box with Sharpies. But you can probably tell that its been a while since I’ve done some touch-ups LOL. However, we thought of the idea for me to paint the box and make it custom made especially for Goodmommy. She already told me the design that she wants, so I’m excited to see how it looks in the end. Stay tuned to see for yourselves!

As I stated in my painting a ceramic decor series, I have been mixing my paints (particularly my acrylic paints) lately. However, I mostly do so on a paper plate, and while it has worked just fine up until now, it can get a little messy when the paints decide that they want to touch each other LOL. Hopefully, these 3 paint pallets will help solve that small problem. 🎨


And along with this set are these two plastic knives, which will be super useful if I ever want to go for a more abstract or textured look in any future projects.

Although I don’t really buy many “toys” at this stage of my life, I have always enjoyed miniature items that I can squeeze in my hands. For whatever reason, I find them so relaxing and fun to play with. Plus this gummy bear is super cute–and super squishy, too! It even stands up on its own if you put it on top of a flat surface.

And the last part of my purchase are these skin tone crayons. As soon as I saw these, I knew I just had get some of them: it’s so hard to find crayons that help me to draw people or characters’ skin without having to make it look like a strange shade of orange or way too pale. I’m quite sure the same goes for a majority of artists.


I had a ball writing this post for you guys–no different than any other day LOL. These go out with me posts are super rewarding: I get to make posts about one of my favorite things to do, which is to spend time with Goodmommy.

✨ Thanks for joining my corner of the Internet today, folks! God bless you all and I’ll see you next time! ✨

Selfies, milkshakes, and birds…lots of birds | Go Out With Me #2

What’s up, y’all? How is everybody doing today…Fantabulous? I’m so glad to hear that!

So, yesterday me and Goodmommy went out to complete some more errands, so I decided to make these ‘Go Out with Me’ posts a series since they’re a lot of fun. Anyway, I happened to see a lot of birds while we were out of the house, and I’m curious to find out exactly how many. In fact, I think I’m going to do a bird count throughout the entire post to see the exact number.

Get ready for some cute new selfies, milkshakes and plenty of bird photos sprinkled in between. Starting…right now. ♡


Bird Count: 1

So the first bird friend that caught my eye (on one of our first couple stops, in fact) was this one. It honestly surprised me that it was on top of bushes. I didn’t understand why until I saw it almost fall on it’s face to catch a lizard as a snack lol. I eventually Google searched a ‘white bird with a yellow head’ and figured out that this species is called the cattle egret. Cool, right? And the bird even looked at me to say ‘bye’ as we pulled out of the parking lot.

You guys already know that I had to take a few cute new selfies, so I might as well show a couple of them. I love my my nameplate is perfectly centered in these photos. It’s almost like my statement piece, and I try to show it in all of my selfies. My efforts definitely payed off!
And I’ve got to admit, these earrings are sparkling bright, today. I LOVE my diamonds and my hearts.

Bird Count: 10

On our next stop, I saw an entire flock of birds, which I count to be nine. At this point, I was a little surprised at how many feathered-friends I was seeing. Little did I know that I was in store of many more. Seriously though, this isn’t even half of the bird count.

Next up, my Goodmommy was super sweet to drive by Steak n’ Shake to get a milkshake. It has been YEARS since I’ve gotten any flavorexcept the classic strawberry, but today I was in the mood for something different. I ended up ordering chocolate, instead. This was one of those things that tasted super good just because I hadn’t had it in so long.

Bird Count: 32

This is where the number starts doubling…or in this case, tripling. When we went to a couple of grocery stores as our final stops, we saw this huge flock of birds on the roof of a clothing store.

Plus, I also saw a portrait of two birds in a building, as well as a black bird, which was what I believe to be a Common Grackle (which appears black, but has an almost iridescent blue and purple head and body), therefore, that adds obvious to the bird count.

FINAL Bird Count: 35


As you can see, we had a whole lot of fun yesterday. And we saw a lot of birds, too. I absolutely love animals, so I am thankful that God placed them in my path for me and Goodmommy to see and learn about. Birds are super beautiful to look at.

Thank you so much for reading, and I’ll see you all next time! ✨

Just two gals, running some errands | Go Out With Me

Hey, everyone! I hope that you are all having an amazing weekend, so far. On yesterday’s post, I talked about some of the things that I like to bring when I go out in public. While I explained that I’m a homebody, and I don’t like to leave the house often, we decided that today would be a great girls’ day out. We took LOTS of photos on our little drive around, both out and indoors. I’m super excited to show y’all what we did. <33

You all already know that selfies are my thing, so I had to take lots of them! I even took a few before we left, but they turned out a little blurry, so I decided to include this one, instead. I must admit that the natural light was popping today, which is always the best weather for picture perfect photos. Of course, photoshoots are always necessary!
And of course, we had to bring some Gatorade with us since we knew we would be out for a few hours. Cherry is not me or Goodmommy’s favorite flavor, but it did us justice.
Before we went to a craft store and Petco to get Peace some more supplies, we went to get me a milkshake. I remember we used to get milkshakes from this particular restaurant all the time. Although we don’t go as often anymore, I’m glad that we are able to stop by once and a while. Plus, it makes for a great day of bonding.

Although I paid for it with my allowance (Goodmommy didn’t get one for herself, today) I thank God that Goodmommy was super kind to take me. Strawberry is my absolute favorite flavor! Though, I will admit that the chocolate shakes are a close second. As soon as my Goodmommy offered to take me to get a sweet treat, I didn’t hesitate to agree.

On our way to the craft store, we took a bit of a drive around town. We were able to take a lot of beautiful pictures, one including this one of two cows eating some grass on a large field. I don’t know if it was me or Goodmommy who took this pic, in particular, since I asked her to take some closer shots from the driver’s seat. It honestly doesn’t matter though; this shot is absolutely perfect, in my opinion.

I don’t know what it is, but for me, it’s absolutely the chef’s kiss. Feel free to comment your rating of the photograph from a 1-10. Thanks, you guys! ✨

Although we originally went to Michaels to pick up an online order, we couldn’t help ourselves: we had to take a look around! During our browsing, we were able to get a glimpse of these adorable letter tabletop decorations in different pastel colors.

At first, I was tempted to get all the letters of my name: Q’Zion. But considering that they were 8.99 a piece (5.00 if you considered the 40% off discount), I decided to only get my first initial, Q, in the pretty purple. Still, I’m very happy with it and I’ll be sure to put it in my room before I go to bed.

Finally, we stopped at Petco to get our betta fish, Peace, some new equipment for his tank. Today, we got him a leaf bed to put towards the top of the tank to give him another space to sleep comfortably. I think it looks great and although he hasn’t completely laid inside his leaf yet, he has hovered over it and observed it, so I’m glad that we made the extra purchase.

We’ve also got him a heater, a thermometer (which he has a hilarious OBSESSION with,) some strips to test the water pH, and we made a net out of stockings to cover the filter. It’s super exciting to be able to get to know Peace more. He is very observant, and he loves to swim up to us when we are near. He is definitely more introverted (he looks before he leaps and explores different parts of the tank) and his personality is super mellow, calm, and peaceful, which is a big part of why we named him Peace. His bright colors are beautiful to look at and match the entire tank super beautifully!

So, as you can see, we did a lot today. I’m honestly super glad we did; anytime with Goodmommy is a great time (and I know she feels just the same way<33.) I hope you guys enjoyed going out with me and seeing what we did, where we went, and what we bought on this girls’ day out.

God bless you all and I’ll see you later! ✨
