Now, First are the questions that were asked by Allie!

1. What’s your all time favorite memory?

Now onto the questions asked by Eliyah!

2. Can you do a backflip? (Ground or trampoline)

I can on the trampoline! And I used to be able to do it on the ground but I haven’t done it in forever so i’d be scared to find out if I still can.

3. Do you like dolls?

Yes I do! I have a couple of American girl dolls stored away with lots of other doll things, I haven’t actually gotten them out in awhile but yes I do like them! I was literally obsessed with them when I was younger haha.

4. If you could choose one board game or card game, what would it be?

Either Clue, or Scattergories. Those are my all time favorite games to play!

5. Have you ever gone fishing before?

I have! Quite a few times, I have unfortunately never caught a fish before and I have zero patience for fishing most of the time. It’s a very peaceful and quiet activity to me though, and I like that about it!

Getting Chickens?! + Chicken Name Poll

Hey ya’ll! I hope you’re doing well. I am literally soooo happy about this post haha! You already seen in the title, so yes! We are getting chickens! xD *yaaaaayy!* We have actually wanted to get some sort of farm animals of our own for awhile now (not to mention my Mom actually dreams of living on a farm) and we have decided to get some chicks! We will have our own fresh eggs, and chickens are also super cute so they also count as cuddly floof-ball pets.

I am trying to convince my Mom to let me name one of them and call it as my own, and i’ve been working on coming up with a list of some really cute names I like haha! So, I will list all of the names i’ve gotten together below then you can use the poll below it to vote on what you think I should name my chicken! You can pick up to 3 of your favorite name ideas listed! Here are my favorite names that I have narrowed down to!

  1. Sunshine

I feel like this would be one of my favorite names out of them all, it’s just a really cute name! I was also sort of thinking “Sunshine” could be the name of the chicken mascot for “Sunshine & Rain” haha, ya’know? Just to represent Lol. I just really love sunshine so much, so I think it could be a great name!

2. Nugget

Alright, well please don’t get mad at me for this but I think Nugget would be a funny and cute name for a chicken, Haha! *laughs uneasily* I don’t really have a full explanation for it, but I think it’d also make a cute, funny name! Just let me know what you think!

3. Arizona

Another name I love, Arizona. There’s just something so pretty about it so I think this would also been one of my favorites!

4. Lemon

This is for some reason such an adorable name to me! Lemon the Chicken haha! Doesn’t it sound so cute?

5. Mylo

This name sounds super unique, and really cute! Mylo would also seem to suit a chicken very well. Definitely one of my faves!

6. Mitzi

I just love this name so much, again it just seems like it’d suit a Chicken so well! I think that it is pure adorable.

7. Potato (Tater)

I think that Potato, aka Tater would make an absolutely adorable name haha! It’s just so cute and I think it’s hilarious! πŸ˜‚

I absolutely love all of these name ideas, and it’s so hard to choose one! So help me out by taking the poll down below and voting on your top 3 favorite names!

Welp, today was a shorter post than usual but I cannot wait to see the results for your votes! I plan on doing little update posts for the chickens later on so I am also excited for those. Definitely let me know if you have any other name ideas because I love hearing from y’all! Thanks for checking out my latest post, and be sure to check out some of my other posts like The Chapters Of Confidence Tag! The tag is open for anybody to do, and I hope to see you to do it as well! I’ll see ya later my Chicken Nuggets!

(P.S. I’m sorry for getting Chickens and then calling you guys my Chicken Nuggets, I’m still keeping it though. I love it. πŸ˜‚)

One year blogging anniversary! πŸ˜œπŸ™ˆ *throws confetti* + Chapters of Confidence tag: Spreading confidence, one heart at a time!

Hello mah friends! *smiles big and waves aggressively* As you seen from the title, it is my one year blogging anniversary on this blog!! Yaaaay! Haha, it’s pretty cool to think about! Like it’s really been an entire year?! First off, I just want to thank y’all so much for all the love you’ve sent, it really makes me so happy each time reading all the precious comments from you, and seeing a new member of the #ChickenNuggetFam (Aka, a new follower) has joined our amazing group! And yes, Chicken Nugget Fam is the official name for the Sunshine & Rain community. πŸ˜‚ So thank you all so much for all your support, sweet words, and being apart of everything on this blog!

But anywho, in celebration of our one year anniversary, I have created my very own tag! “Chapters of Confidence: Spreading confidence, one heart at a time.” I had started working on this tag awhile ago, about last fall, but unfortunately somehow lost all my work on it and it had almost been completely forgotten. But, I’ve been working more and I have brought it back!

The reason I had created this tag in the first place, was because there was a specific time I was going through where I literally had 0 self confidence, or esteem. I felt so bad about myself all the time and I ended up starting to hate myself because of it. It kind of just hit out of nowhere and kept coming in waves, and I didn’t understand why I felt so bad about myself. I didn’t like my personality, I wasn’t happy with what I seen in the mirror, and all I did was point out everything I hated that I seen myself as. There was no self love there.

It was a really hard time, and it still is hard because I am not saying “Oh, well i’m completely over it now.” Because it’s not that easy, and I still deal with this stuff alot. But I remember one specific day a few months ago, when I was at my worst. I was angry, sad, and I couldn’t stop asking myself “What is my purpose, and do I even have one?” “Who am I? Why am I here? What’s so beautiful about me?” Those questions overflowed my mind, and I couldn’t stop them. I told myself so many lies, like I didn’t deserve to be loved because of who I was, that I didn’t belong anywhere which just made me feel worse, and all I wanted to do was escape.

That day, I was so sick of it and so desperate that I sat down and said “ya’know what, I’m done thinking of myself like this.” I grabbed a piece of paper, and a pencil and just started spilling out words of encouragement to myself. I started writing down the things that made up who I am, and they were all good things. It just started to flow out of my heart and kept going. A few pencil scribbles later, I ended up with an entire list of things that made up who I was, and that I decided and chose to love about myself. I got rid of all the hate and hurt I had closed up inside myself and refreshed my heart and mind. This small little list gave me self love, it was like literally looking at myself all beautifully written down. It made me happy. I thought, “Is that really how God sees me?”

After I had finished the list, I started to think. “If i’ve gone through this, someone else out there must have too.” And that single thought broke my heart. Knowing that another teen was feeling the same burning hurt that I was, who felt they didn’t belong, who hated themselves so much, immediately lit a fire inside my heart and inspired me to do something about it.

Here are the rules for this tag:

  1. Use the same featured image for the tag (Which is the one that I have designed and have displayed above, but definitely feel free to make your own image to display along with it!)
  2. Thank the blogger who nominated you, and pingback to the tag’s creator (That would be Hailey at https://throughsunshineandrain.home.blog/)
  3. Talk about some ways that you have struggled with self confidence or esteem in the past, or things that have helped you with it. (As I did in the couple paragraphs above)
  4. Out of self love, and confidence, make a “List of you”. A list of however many things you’d like that you think make up the beautiful you! And end the “List of You” with a simple “I am (your name).” The List of You is meant to boost your own confidence, and self esteem. It is not out of bragging, but simply out of self love and encouragement! It is okay to be proud of who you are, and to show that you believe you are beautiful!
  5. Nominate as many people in the tag as you want, spread the message of confidence to as many hearts as possible! You can even nominate friends that don’t have blogs, and have them do their post on your own blog.

Alright with all that said, here is my own “List of You”. Again, this is completely out of self love, esteem, and to install and engage self confidence! I do not want to boast about who I am at all, it is completely meant to tend to my own heart and mind and to inspire you to create a list as well!

Now for my nominees!

I am doing this a little different though. I am not going to make a small list of people I am nominating for this tag, I actually nominate everyone that is apart of the #ChickenNuggetFam for this tag! Even if you aren’t following Sunshine & Rain and just stopped by, I still encourage you to follow along but I also challenge and nominate you for the Chapters of Confidence tag! So, yes! You there! I nominate you! Please spread this message of confidence as far as you can. This is something that I am really passionate about, and really tugs at my heart. I hope for this message to reach as many other hearts as possible! ❀

I want anyone that is going through the hurt that I did, and still do, to know that you are fearfully and wonderfully made by God! You are precious, loved, and oh so beautiful! You should love who you are, because you have a purpose that is all your own and you are amazing. You don’t have to make a Chapters of Confidence post, but I still very much encourage that you atleast sit down with a pen and paper and make a List of You. Pour out all the things that you love, and the great things that make up who you are! I can’t wait to see where this tag reaches, and I hope you enjoy making some of your own posts!

I’ll see ya later Chicken Nugget Fam, so stay confident, and keep smiling! Lot’s of love,

A Day In My Life During Quarantine: Collaboration ft. Allie, Go with the waves blog!

Hello my chicken nuggets! Im baaaaaack! 😁 Happy Sunday! Haha, today is going to be a very exciting post! This is the first ever collaboration here on Hailey Creates! *throws confetti* (Which speaking of, may not be the name of this blog here soon so you’ll hear more about that later on!) This post is in collaboration with my dear best gurl friend, my newest pen pal, and fellow blogger, Allie! We both created the same post so be sure to go check out her version of a day in the life, and her blog as well! You can find it here: https://gowiththewaves.wixsite.com/gowiththewaves So go send her some love, because her blog is A-MAH-ZING! Allie is a really close friend of mine, and I love her alot which she’s probably reading this so HALOOO POTATO SISTER!! πŸ˜†πŸ’• This post was so much fun to create with her, and we have alot of ideas for more collabs in the future! BTW, it was all from yesterday so it was my Saturday routine! I also wanted to make this post because I feel like when I’m older i’d wanna look back on not only basically what I did on a daily basis but how I got through quarantine haha. Without further ado, I’m gonna start! (Also i’m starting to think i used my mirror for a little too many of the pics hehe…)

Morning: 7:45

So of course in the morning you wake up, so yeah that’s my terrible mirror photo of what I look like when I wake up Lol

As soon as I woke up, I went to open my blinds to let some nice light in. I normally sit down and read after I do this but this morning I started straight on to getting breakfast.

I started on getting some tea ready, and I actually decided to try a packet that Allie kindly sent me in one of her penpal letters! It was soooo good! *dreamy eyes* We have a whole cabinet full of different tea packets though haha!

Why not take a silly picture? Haha

For breakfast I ate a homemade pumpkin chocolate chip muffin, with some chia pudding.

Morning: 8:30

After I was finished with that, I sat at my desk to start working on some pen pal letters and blog stuff. I didn’t take any pictures because my pen pals will be seeing this and I want my letters to be surprises! But be expecting an entire post on some of my pen pal letters soon!

Morning: 10:30

Afterwards, I work on making my bed and picking some things up before I bring out my yoga mat, and do my workout exercises and some stretches! This really helps me feel alot more energized and ready for the day, and quarantine has given me a little more time to focus on taking care of myself. (Does anybody else feel awkward sharing pictures of yourself exercising? Haha)

When I’m done with that, I feel really nasty with mah greasy hair but for some reason decide to show it off in a picture. *raises eyebrows in confusion* I start more of my self care time by hopping in the shower, washing my face, moisturizing, and best of all shavinggg. Like DUDE, there is almost nothing better than having smooth legs after a nice shave so that was great. Lol Oh, also changing into the outfit of the day! (Aka, normal human clothes)

#WetHair

I went back to working on some pen pal things and blog stuff with my headphones, and folded some laundry. Ya know, my daily life is not that interesting πŸ˜‚

Afternoon: 12:00

I then had some frozen fruit and a sandwhich for lunch πŸ˜‹

I took some extra ‘me’ time and sat down to play ukulele for awhile, I am actually working on getting some covers uploaded soon so I am excited for those! Comment down below if you play any instruments!

Next, I took some time outside to get some air while riding my Rip Surf! It was unfortunately too cold for shorts so I had to put on some jeans and a hoodie hehe

I later came back inside and watched a little bit of YouTube on my phone, which isn’t the most productive thing to do unfortunately. I also Facetimed a 2 of my close friends (Allie and her brother Aiden actually!) for a few minutes before dinner was ready too. It’s always so much fun talking with them, and I love how goofy we are together!

Evening: 6:00

We ate dinner which I completely forgot to take a picture but it’s fine hehe. Anyways, we finished eating dinner so I actually went back to doing random things like pen pal letters (For the third time), playing ukulele, and trying to write a silly song about quarantine believe it or not. πŸ˜‚ I actually started running out of interesting things to do and take pictures of (If everything else was even interesting at all) so I started to scravage for things to do.

It was getting kinda late at this point so I started my bedtime routine, which includes brushing of teeth (Which speaking of, I forgot to mention I did brush my teeth that morning, I didn’t skip that step) putting on comfortable clothes which I’m talking about sweatpants and a t-shirt, and I also normally read before bed too. The stars were really pretty last night too, I didn’t get any pictures of stars from last night but i’ll include one from a couple days ago that I planned on posting anyways…

Okey dokey! Once i’m done reading some sort of book\magazine I lay down, and drift to sleep. That’s basically the end of my daily quarantine routine!

Thank you for checking out my latest post, I really hope you enjoyed seeing a little bit of what I do during quarantine and almost on a daily basis! Remember, this was in collaboration with my close friend Allie so before you go, click on this link to check out her blogs site and her day in the life post: https://gowiththewaves.wixsite.com/gowiththewaves This was so much fun to create with her, and I hope to get together with her to do more things like this in the future!

I also want to let you guys know to stay happy during this time, don’t worry! I know things like this can be scary but God’s got this, he’s gonna keep you safe and everything will turn out okay in the end! Everything happens for a purpose and it’s all for good in the end, even if it seems terrible in the moment. Hopefully everything will be able to go back to normal sooner than later, because I don’t know about you but I am an extrovert and I miss seein’ mah people! Haha! Anyways, have a nice day my chicken nuggets, and Stay Positive!
