It's Thanksgiving!


  I highly doubt that you have forgotten this...but, if you have, I just wanted to remind you. 

Today is Thanksgiving!!!
I pray you all have a blessed Thanksgiving stuffing yourself! 

What are you doing for Thanksgiving?
What is your favorite part of Thanksgiving?
 Do you travel, or stay in the comfort of your home eating your favorite dessert? 






Here we go...caroling?

I don't know about you, but something about Christmas coming and snow makes me want to sing!

My older sister asked me if I would go caroling (she was asking me some random questions...she is so funny sometimes..haha). I told her if we had like a ton of people so nobody can hear me...hahaa...I like singing and all, but not in public!

What about you? Are you brave enough to go caroling?

Winter Wasteland Tag


I've made up my own tag! I am getting sick of doing the same things while the snow keeps on falling..so I thought, why don't we all join together and share our ideas?! This tag is very simple really. All you have to do is share 5-15 things that you like doing in the Winter, then tag 5-10 people. Also, if you try something on one of the tag posts let people know!  

What do you usually do when the snow starts falling and you are unable to get out of the house? Do you pick up a book, look at blogs online, catch up on schoolwork, or mope? 

If you don't know what to do with your case of Winter boredom, then scroll down!
 Here is a list of things to do....

  • If it isn't too cold, play outside in the snow! It is a lot more fun then you think. ;)
  • Use this time to find a new hobby. Maybe you never had the time before, but now you do! 
  • Read a reallllyyyy good book. If you don't have a growing book list, message me. I'll help! =)
  • Write letters to your penpals, grandparents, Aunts, or any relative. People love a good letter. 
  •  Catch up on schoolwork..I know..but, it is a good time to do so. Maybe math, history, spelling...whatever! Use this time to get ahead in your classes or catch up.  


  • Clean your bedroom! You feel much less enclosed with a clean room. Put some Christmas music on too! It helps a lot. :D
  • Start working on your Christmas gifts. If you are an online shopper or a handmade gift maker, this is a great time to get started.
  • Message a friend. Maybe s/he has a case of winter boredom as well. Just a tip though, don't talk about Winter. It doesn't help. ;)
  • Play a game of Scrabble (or any board game) with your siblings! It is a lot of fun. 
  • Read your Bible and talk with God. Find a warm, quiet spot to be alone with Him. It helps sooo much with your attitude!
  • If you have a blog, make a list of blog posts that you want to do that month. That way, if you run out of ideas, you'll have a backup!
  • Make a treat for your mail person. Make them feel appreciated today!

I tag.........


Keep on tagging ladies! We can beat Winter Boredom!


Humpty Dumpty Jumped Out of the Fridge!


This is the story of an egg. Just an ordinary egg with a silly face drawn on it. *going back in time music* It was a normal day.  I was making dinner. Sloppy joes and a chocolate caramel sea salt cake. As I was mixing the chocolate batter for the cake I noticed that I forgot the egg. I swung around, danced to the fridge and grabbed an egg. Then it happened...the poor little egg with the silly face jumped right out of my hand, trying to run away. What the egg didn't realize was how high and dangerous that leap would be. splat.  As you can see, he didn't make it.... sliced through the middle..such a sad way to go. And, that was the story of the egg with the silly face... *fading back into time music* 





Hahaa, I'm back. Did you enjoy my silly retelling of my dramatic moment in the kitchen? Well! I continued making my cake...it turned out quite yummy if I do say so myself. *grin* I even made my first ever caramel. I actually didn't have heavy cream, but salted caramel coffee creamer sounded like a good enough substitute. Besides, my caramel was going into a frosting, so it didn't have to be perfect.

Also have you ever watched "What's my line"? It is a old t.v. show where someone would come in to the television set and 3 people would have to guess that person's job. There are quite a few crazy jobs! I especially liked the one where a guy had a job climbing into jets engines to make sure everything was running smoothly. Yeek!!

Have you ever made caramel?
Do you like shows like "What's my line?"
Have you ever drawn on your eggs? 


Side swept bangs??

Well, hello! I am so glad that you are reading this blog post right now. :) I've been doing a lot of holiday thinking lately, as I'm sure you have been too. It seems for me that this year is really hard for me. I usually can find what I want to get for my family members fairly quick. But, this year, I've only had a few ideas. Well, I guess I'll have to start thinking harder. ;)

I've just recently *gasp* run out of books to read! I usually read the "Christian heroes than and now" series, but I found out that I've read all of the books that the library system has in my state. :( *Cue crying* So, I need your help. What kind of books do you like reading? I'm not big into fantasy...are you? We went to the library and I couldn't even find a single book to read, which is really odd for me. I'm usually able to find lots of books. Maybe I've gone to the same library for too long? ;)

 And, the biggest question of all. I am looking into cutting my hair. I really like the side swept look of bangs, and I found a DIY way to do it from pinterest. (I'm not addicted...don't worry. :D) What do you think of the look below? I couldn't believe it. I got an email from a really good friend, and she told me she was getting bangs. And, I never told her what I was thinking. Sometimes, we are very alike. :D
I wish I had red hair. ;) 

 What family member is the hardest to find gifts for? 
At your house do you draw names, get a gift for everyone, or just not exchange gifts at all?
 What do you think of side swept bangs?





Challenges of time change...

See that dark cloud up in the left corner? That isn't a cloud..it is my finger..haha..
November is here folks, and with it brings a lot of exciting new challenges for me! One of which is starting NaNoWriMo... It is a novel writing challenge. I am aiming to finish a 50,000 word novel by the end of this month. Yeek is right! That means 1,500 words each day.....um....yeah, lets see how this goes, right? ;) Haha!

 I just figured that if I don't get 1,500 each day, I'll at least try my best to get close to it and that is better than not writing at all! Though, I need your help..I'm horrible with coming up with titles for books. I mean, horrible! So, even though I'm not giving out any information for the novel yet, I'm depending on you to help me with title names..I know, so kind.

 And, how are you doing with time change? It is barely 5:30 and already getting dark...not fun. It is going to take a few weeks for me to stop saying "it is really 6:30.." Also, those snow flakes I was going to taste..it was too cold. I didn't go out. But, I did look out the window and thought about how they might taste. Haha...


Have you had any snow?
Do you have a cold?
How is your schoolwork going?
