  1. PUTTING NOTES IN BOTTLES UNDER THE FLOOR IS THE COOLEST THING I'VE HEARD IN A WHILE. Ahhh Julia if only everyone was as cool as you then we'd all find cute notes under our floors. :-P
    You don't like snow?!?! WHAT IS WRONG WITH SNOW?
    Sounds like you had a SWELL November. This was so much fun to read. ;-)

  4. I love finding neverland!!!!!!! That is one soundtrack you can listen to all afternoon:). Especially a rainy one. Okay.....I cracked up hysterically at your Walmart coat!!!! Oh man and people starring at you!!! Okay, so, I was in an antique store on Saturday and the aisle was smaller and there were a ton of people. Well, this guy is walking and he just STOPS abruptly right next to me and turns around and stares at me for like 5 seconds. I mean, his face was RIGHT in front of mine. After a while I just gave him a somewhat goofy grin and then he walked on. I was so creeped out......I have no idea what he was thinking......

    I like this post:)

  6. Is turkey in ham even a thing????
    I love that last gif! Totally need to do that next time I make a pie. Oooh, how big were your apple pies? My favorite recipe has like a caramely sauce, and its so tasty to have as a leftover- if there actually is any XD
    I love wrap up posts, and just started doing them myself. Sounds like you had a great month! I can hardly believe Nov is ending. O.O Seriously, it just went by so fast.

    And your dad almost got in a wreck? That isn't fun at all.

    1. IDK?!?! probably not *laughs*
      I knnnnooooww! I was just sitting there and staring at it. like SERIOUSLY I NEED IT IN MY LIFE. It's a big 9X13 pan, legit STUFFED. lol
      You did? How fun!! I had a fantastic month. I want to do this more because I'll be able to look back on it, you know?

      YES. This car pulled out in front of him when he was driving 55 mph and he had to SLAM on his breaks...he said he swerved and everything :|

    2. My Dad was telling me on Thanksgiving Eve that people have started making "Turdukens" -Turkey wrapped duck (possibly chicken too, given the name?!) So yeah. turkey in ham could totally be a thing. I think it's all gross.... I don't even let my foods touch each other on my plate, lol.
      I'm so glad your dad was okay, Julia!

      Delete
  7. I loved this post so much! You should do one every month. YES. JULIA you are actually one of the coolest people ever. PUTTING NOTES UNDER THE FLOOR? Okay. OKAY THAT IS GENIUS. End of story.

    And wait is the GIF legit?! Like I never thought about that before, but if you would put an apple on a screw driver and hold an apple peeler there. HAHAHA THAT WOULD BE SO FUNNY. I wonder if it works? xD And almost falling through the ceiling doesn't sound too fun either. That would be pretty scary.

    OH AND DUDE we should totally go sugar free for like two weeks or something. My throat is begging me too. (No self control + WAY TOO MANY cookies + little sleep = bad deal)

  14. I so totally need to try that screwdriver, apple-peeling thing. And hiding bottles with messages under floorboards?! That is so cool! My siblings and I have sent bottles down the river, but I've never thought of putting them in other places. That is so neat!
    Also, I'm just going to sit here and smile at the fact that reading my books made it into your list. Like, girl, that totally made my whole week! ^_^
    Oh, and I laughed at the cartwheel thing. Because my sister does gymnastics, and she's tried to get me to try it ... augh, no. xD They are soooo much harder than they look!
