Apologies Once Again + What's In Cora's Skating Bag?

Hi everyone! I am SO sorry for such a long break between each post :( I promise I am not quitting blogging, it's just this time of year is really busy for me! :(
I will do better, though, at updating my blog more frequently again, though :)
Anyway, though, I decided to do a fun mini-series (as in only two parts ;)  ) with Cora, who has recently taken up a new hobby, along with me--figure skating!
We both have been immensely enjoying our newfound sport, and we will be showing you what we like to  do to prepare for a fun-filled day of skating ;)
Oh and I also forgot to mention, but I am so sorry for the awful picture quality of the photos below--I have no idea what happened! :(
But anyway, this will all be done from the point of view of Cora, so I will be giving the computer over to her ;) Take it away, Cora! ;)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Hey everyone! It's Cora, and today I will be showing you what's in my figure skating bag, plus how I get ready for a long day at the rink ;) Since Shelby's computer is being really stubborn today, it won't let her upload the "getting ready for a long day at the rink" photo examples she took, so I will be making a Part Two containing those pictures soon ;) But since she managed to upload the "What's In My Skating Bag" photos, I'll be sharing them with you in Part One!


Oh, and excuse my awful looking curls, Shelby hasn't had time to re-curl them in a while :P

Onto what's in my bag!

First off, you're going to need a nice, durable bag to put your skates and supplies in. I'm using a modified Nintendo DS bag as my backpack for supplies ;)



The next think I have to have in my bag are (obviously ;) ) my skates! For humans I recommend putting soft cloth soakers or hard guards on your blades before storing them in your bag, but Shelby couldn't find mine, and since they're for a doll that isn't as important ;) 

 

Next, I always have an extra set of thin, moisture-wicking trouser socks in my bag, because you never know when one of your pairs may get a run in them ;) 



Next, since I change into my practice clothes at the rink, I always have my skating clothes in my bag ;) 


Also, I always have water bottle in my bag so I don't get dehydrated! I usually have a doll-sized one, but yet again, Shelby couldn't find mine so she posed me with a real human-sized one ;)



Next, I always bring a hair tie to keep my hair up and out of my face while skating ;) 

 
 
That's about it! I may sometimes bring a few extra things, such as an extra jacket or possibly a  nutritious snack, but that's really all I bring along! I try to keep my bag as light as possible ;) I hope you enjoyed, and happy Earth Day! ;)

Google+ Page!

Hi everyone! I probably will be deleting this post in a few days because it's such a short, boring post, but I just wanted to let you all know that I now will be using my Google+ page for quick blog/YouTube updates and a few other things, and if you are interested in checking it out, click *HERE* for the link ;) Sorry again for such a short post! I probably won't be putting much up over the weekend (my dad is a pastor at our church so we'll be spending the majority of our weekend there) but I promise I'll get back into a regular post schedule soon :) If you read this miserably dull post this far, comment "OH MY COW'S POTATOES!" ;) Thank you for reading!

My AGPC Challenge Three Entry!

Here is my entry for AGPC Challenge Three! The theme is Black And White :) This picture has not been touched up in any other way than by using PicMonkey.com to change it from its original color form to B & W ;) 

Caption: **Note: it's super late where I live, and I need to get this up before bed so I will edit this with a caption in the morning ;) )

About this photo ~ I used my Nikon Coolpix L830 camera to take this photo :) 

Thanks for reading!
