WELL DECEMBER IS DONE AND CHRISTMAS IS DONE AND 2017 IS TOO YIKESS / out with the old

December 26, 2017

D E C E M B E R :::::::

*watching the new Petes dragon*
- little sib "what bridge is that?"
- other little sib "London bridge!"
- me "uhm

"Let me tell you the story of how I got my wiggly tooth. I was just sitting there and then I bit into my candy and was like "mom I hurt my tooth." Then "mom I got a wiggly tooth!" - little sis

so it's like 1 degree outside
-lady at library "I left my lotion in the car. it's frozen solid"


send emotional help please. Alfred, my speaker, won't come back to life
UPDATE : MY PARENTS BOUGHT ME A NEW ONE FOR CHRISTMAS. her name is Aubrey XD

Christmas morning my little siblings woke up waaaaaaaaaaaaaay to early. aka 5:30 am. 


the first snnnnooooowww!!! (Yes I think my slowly forceful positive view is working)

-me "what do you want for Christmas?"
-little sis "well not everything in the store cuz that would make me greedy and I don't want to be greedy."

I've been giving her random addition problems SHE IS SO CUTE GUYS (gotta work on how 10 looks tho LOL)


- sis "look! Dancing Christmas lights!!"
- bro "that's a projector! Lights are so yesterday."

"I got a little sea sick" - little sis after 15 min car ride



being at work and my co-worker/ friend just starts singing the veggie tale theme song then we have it stuck in our head for the rest of the day

- little bro a few minutes before falling asleep "hey Julia can cereal ever go bad?"


I have listened to 503 hours of Spotify this year *cough*

made it to work jjuuuuusssttt in time 


my mom put gas in my car *sobs* THANK YOU MOMMY

I thought my headphones died but they didn't and I was sooooo happy

so like totally embarrassing but I was pushing a full cart of books at the library and knocked it over, sending books evvvvvvvvveeeeeerrywhere. I'm still bruised from it LOL (also then my co-worker brought me a starbucks coffee afterwords without her knowledge *sobs*) 


me afterwards lol 

"I actually like this macaroni! It has lots of protein right julia?" - little sis 


hmmm yes..interesting Amazon LOL ^^

so I got to help out with a Christmas event at the library -- including wrapping gifts for 100+ kids and making green slime with them SRSLY SO MUCH FUN

my mom "nationwide recall on the smoked fish. Wow. Glad I put that back"

me

little sis : "do you know how to make a snow man?"
me : "uh yeah. I'm super old remember"

ALL THE CHRISTMAS WRAPPING AND SHOPPING AND TEA MMM

Legit accidentally took this photo and was so thrilled bc I keep meaning to show you all Wilson's sticker XD



so it dumped snow one night and when I was driving into town I saw two cars with their windows down which had obv been left like that overnight yiikkes

so the sibs were watching Clifford (the big red dog PLEASE TELL ME YOU REMEMBER THIS)
- Clifford telling story  "I was driving my brand new yellow car!"
- other dog Cleo "HEY. You can't drive a car! You're too young!"
Yeah not what I thought I grew up watching lol


We like a lot of different wrapping papers hehehe

- me @ midnight " imma gonna make half batch of waffles"
- Sarah "don't be silly."
- me "it's not silly. I only need 1 1/2 eggs."

so my dad just keeps on randomly dumping bags of Christmas gifts for people in my room and I just keep opening them and am like "huh hope that wasn't for me"

my sister " I hate it when my eyelashes itch"


----------------------------------------------------

THE NEW STUFF HAPPENING :

so like 2017 was a FANTASTIC year and I can't wait for 2018. for the past two years I've posted 168 times, roughly meaning that a new one is up every 4-6 days. no breaks, no vacations. In fact, when I went to the east coast and on my vacation, I posted even more. lol! aka photo dumps XD I really really love blogging. It inspires me and I've truly come to feel comfortable to be myself. (DONT WORRY IM NOT QUITTING LOL) 

but I'm going to try a few new things. The first is that I am going to be switching my posting schedule around slightly. I'm thinking having a set day in the week might become a bit easier for myself. so that day is going to be Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. 

I'd love to know what day you would like best!!! 


-----------------------------------------------------

btw, Christmas was amazing + we woke up to 4-6 inches of fresh snow. it's freeezing (-16 degrees) but still awesome <3

Last year I ended my monthly post with a gif from The Princess Bride. I decided it's a good tradition to keep. so..... 

2017 legit
DID YOU HAVE AN AMAZING CHRISTMAS + DID YOU GET SNOW?
WHAT DAY WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO POST EACH WEEK?

  1. Your life snippets and sibling's conversations are the best. :) Yes, I remember Clifford, although I think I only read the books. Isn't it so nice when someone else fills up your car with fuel?! It's a highlight when my mum does that for me too. :) And wow, Wilson has a name badge! Is that why you named him that, or did you put it there?

    You're such a consistent blogger. I don't know how you keep up with it. I don't think it would make much difference to me which day you post - whatever works best for you! :)

    All the best for 2018! It's so soon - the last gif is too accurate!

    1. aww thanks Jess! I love writing them down..and then having them to look back on. Totally my favorite part of writing these monthly posts. Ohhh really? The cartoons are so relaxing! I always put Clifford on when I babysit. ;) OH YES. FOR REAL YES. and he does *grins* haha it is why he is named that. Sarah actually noticed it first and I was like "Well I can't change his name, can I?" So he is officially Wilson Stillwater XD

      tbh, I don't either. I guess it's bc something I really love doing. plus I'm dedicated for life to legit everything. LOL aww thanks girlie <3

      hahaha!! I cracked up so hard XD HAPPY NEW YEAR GIRL

  3. I loved the new Pete's dragon!!!
    She is too cute working those math problems <3. My sister has been doing this to our brother... he had a major mind break through when they worked on zero pluses yesterday ;).
    Sorry, but I hate the projectors, haha. Not as much as my dad does, but still.
    "I'm sea sick from, uh... seeing too much."
    Once my Aunt knew someone who got a convertible, and the first night he got it he left the top down.... and it rained.
    So, did you make waffles?
    My dad dumps allllll of his presents, to my mom or that the younger ones havr asked him to pick up, on me - and all we girls share a room, so to assign them to me he actually throws them on my bed, lol. Then he has me wrap his to my mom ­čśé.

  5. Heyhey you name all your things huh?? I name some of my things XD My laptop was plain Dell (brand) and then I named a book character Dell in honor of the laptop lol But Dell broke down a few months ago (the laptop not the character). And my e-reader is called Erie (my mom's idea actually). And I name most of my notebooks (one was Mildew XD) And all me and my sisters have names for our two hands haha and one sister named her feet (Stinky and Slimy, if you want to know lol) ^-^ I haven't named my phone yet tho??? Maybe you want to give me a few ideas?!

    1. LOL I DO. My record player is Stuart. It's kinda just a thing I do. ;) lol!!! Love your names a ton, Lisa. My phone is Gwendolyn, but I call her Gwen. what kind of phone do you have? it's legit fun to name things and then call them that. XD

      Delete
    2. Gwendolyn is such a nice name ^-^ I have an ancient Samsung phone from ... 2014, I guess?? lol

  6. Also abt your new schedule, let me explain a few trends to ya xD you've probably noticed yourself already but ... Wednesdays and Saturdays are the most popular for whatever reason!? Then comes Monday and Friday ... so I basically DO NOT even check my feed on Tuesdays or Thursdays or Sundays ... because only zero to three new posts will be up. So if you want to be odd and brighten my days do post on Tuesday. However I may not see it till Wednesday so ... umm in that case you might as well do Wednesday or Monday lol

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hahhaha thanks for explaining ;) ;) I really haven't noticed actually.. I generally don't have time to check every day, and when I do check, I open allllll the posts I wanna read, then read them later. XD hmmm I do like being odd. *grins* thanks for your help girlie!!

  10. Loved the "I got a little sea sick." SO ADOARBLE!!! <3333 And I LOVE Wilson's sticker!
    We got about 8 inches of snow. Not much, but it was enough to make it beautiful outside!!! It's all melted now though.
    My Christmas was AWESOME!! But I cant believe that it's over. Actually, I cant believe that 2017 is almost over. 2018 will be here in 5 days. FIVE DAYS!!!! But it's going to be a good year. I can tell.
    And I hope 2018 brings you lots of adventures, new possibilities, and lots of ice cream xD
    I decided to start posting every Monday a few months ago and it's really helped me out a lot. But I don't really care when you post, because I'll make sure to read them no matter what!
    LOVED THIS POST, JULIA!!

    Haha, you think THAT is a lot of Christmas wrapping paper... you should see our collection. XD

    My Christmas was very pleasant, although we didn't exactly get snow! (It was only more like 96 degrees Fahrenheit outside or something.) We're actually doing a Christmas celebration with our extended family at the beach tomorrow!! :D HOORAY!
