Fill in the Blank Friday #10

1. Black Friday is 'controlled chaos'. Can be fun, but things can get out of hand as well.
2. Christmas shopping this year will include going to different bigger towns in our area with my parents. This year we decided to buy our family actual gifts, not gift cards like we've done the past few years. It's loads of fun, plus I get to go shopping! :)
3. Holiday shopping makes me happy. Shopping is fun. I am a fan. Sometimes it's hard for me to buy for other people, and not myself, so I think it's good for me.
4. This year my Christmas list will include gray Converse, a camera, pajama pants (haha), and Navy TOMS.
5. Bargain hunter, or full price shopper? Bargain hunter. I will occasionally buy something full price, but most of the time I just can't see buying something that is not on clearance, because things there are just as good and cost a whole lot less.
6. The best and worse things about shopping is getting the 'fix' of being in the mall (does anyone else get this? My dad thinks I'm weird. Ha.), and the downside is getting tired after only so many hours.
7. Online shopper or in-person shopper? Both! Michigan is definitely not Paris as far as clothes go, so we get soo much more selection just shopping online.

Hope everyone finds lots of great deals this Black Friday!

I had to be like everyone else... here's a post about Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving Eve, friends!
As I sit here at home, alone, I thought I'd share this poem I found on Meg's blog.

Thanksgiving Day Wishes

T’was the night of Thanksgiving,
But I just couldn’t sleep.
I tried counting backwards,
I tried counting sheep.

The leftovers beckoned,
The dark meat and white.
But I fought the temptation,
With all of my might.
Tossing and turning,
with anticipation.

The thought of a snack
became infatuation.
So I raced to the kitchen,
Flung open the door,
And gazed at the fridge,
Full of goodies galore.

I gobbled up turkey,
And buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots,
Beans and tomatoes.

I felt myself swelling,
So plump and so round.
‘til all of a sudden,
I rose off the ground.

I crashed through the ceiling,
Floating into the sky,
With a mouthful of pudding,
And a handful of pie.

But I managed to yell
As I soared past the trees
Happy eating to all,
Pass the cranberries, please!!

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.

May your yams be delicious,
May your pies take the prize
And May your Thanksgiving dinner...
Stay off of your thighs!

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and Black Friday!
I know I will.

Peace out!

Gobble. Gobble.

Earrings Galore.

Since I just got my ears repierced, I can't stop looking at earrings online.
I can't wait until my 6 weeks of keeping these studs in are up!

Here are some lovely photos of earrings I've found:




(I LOVE these.)

3rd time's a charm, they say.

Guess what?
I just got my ears repierced!
(for the third time.)

The lady at Claire's was kind of funny though.
She's put the little dots on my ear, to know where to shoot the earring through, and then she takes the gun and tells me, "I'm just going to line it up." So, alright. Whatever. Then she PIERCES my ear! I wasn't even ready! I wasn't even holding my mom's hand!

She lied.

But at least I can finally wear these cute earrings I bought at Mall of America last summer. ;)

Question for you.

Hey folks!
I've got a question for you all. (Hence the title.)

I know that I only update my blog usually twice a week - Mondays and Fridays.
I guess I feel like, if I were to write about just my life and day-to-day happenings, that it would be boring. :(

So, the question is...
What do you blog about when you can't think of anything?
Would you find posts just about school and my weekend plans boring?

Thanks so much! :)

Have a great weekend!

Fill in the Blank Friday #9

Fill in the Blank Friday.

1. The most spontaneous thing I've ever done is wow, wish I had an answer for this one. I really am not too spontaneous. :(
2. The best gift I've ever received was laughter. :) Sounds silly, but I can't imagine what my life would be like without it.
3. A time that I was truly and genuinely surprised was when my sister, Ashley got engaged. She had told my mom and dad, but they for some reason hadn't told me yet. I found out on Twitter!
4. I can't leave the house without my cell phone, and usually iPod.
5. My favorite day of the week is Saturday because I love how open it is. You can do whatever you want. I wish there were more days just like it!
6. Something that can always make me laugh is my friend Dylan. No joke, he is seriously one of the most funny people I have EVER met.
7. My perfect day would include hanging out with my friends. We'd go watch movies at someone's house, eat good food, and just chill. It's the little things. ;)

Monday Photos - November 8

Happy Monday!

This week's theme is:

If you're like me, you're not a fan of the colder temps. But here are some gorgeous pictures of things that wouldn't happen if it never got cold. :)




Unfortunately, there won't be any weekend wrap-up, partly because I did absolutely nothing over the weekend, and I had a pretty crappy day.

Hope yours was better!

Happy Monday!

In other news, my weekend was
once again. Let me share. :)

Friday: I come home from school to see my aunt and step uncle here. That was a nice surprise to start the weekend. :)

Saturday: This is where it gets good. I was SO incredibly busy Saturday. My dad took my friend Lindsey and I to the football playoff game. That was fun. Then I go and LOSE my brand new phone! Whoops. Mistake. We go searching around the entire football stadium for a good 20 minutes. Give up. End up talking to someone at the concession stand, and they take us up to the press box to see if someone had turned it in. I immediately see it sitting on the desk. The lady sitting there questioned me. I can understand that, to a degree, but she seriously thought I was like lying or something. Ha. Anyway, we go buy hot dogs and can finally enjoy the rest of the game.

After the game, my friends Dylan and Tim meet up with us, and we go to my church for this big, annual Halloween party they throw. Basically kids come, they play a game, and then you hand them candy. Lucky for Dylan, Tim, and I... we all got games that had three little balls, and when the kids missed whatever they were aiming for (every time), then you had to bend over and pick the balls up. So, long story short, we all were bending over for 2 hours straight.
We had such a great time though! It was so much fun.
Saturday = Success.

Sunday: Sore from Saturday, I go to church and that's about it until 5:30. I end up going to my friends youth group (we carved pumpkins!), and Dylan, Tim, Lindsey and myself all go mini-golfing right afterwards. How fun! We all stopped playing after about the 9th hole. Have you ever completely finished a game of mini golf? I know I haven't. We get goofy halfway through and then just mess around.

How was your weekend?
