It’s November!


November is possibly one of my favorite months of the year because of Thanksgiving and all the Christmas prep! I’m getting super excited to spend my month off (one of the many benefits of doing PSEO as a Jr. in high school) with my South Dakota family!

Also, as a bit of a change-of-pace, we’re doing Thanksgiving at my aunt and uncles (on my mom’s side), which should be exciting. My little cousins are growing like weeds, and I never get to see any of them nearly enough as I should!

I’m thinking I’ll brainstorm some easy holiday decorations for around our upper level duplex. Construction paper decor for the window facing the street, perhaps? 🙂 Maybe I can buy some garland to hang around the windows and other places.

Oh, and the baking, I LOVE HOLIDAY FOOD. I’m making snickerdoodles with my loverboy, tomorrow. ❤ My step mom will be jealous. 🙂

More later!

P.S. I’m thinking about doing movie reviews, and maybe posting some of the more informative essays I’ve written for class. Yay or nay? Lemme know. 🙂

Family Traditions: Halloween


Like I said, we make a pretty big deal out of Halloween at my dad’s house, so I figured I could give everyone a taste of the fun we have. 😀

At the end of September or beginning of October we all sit down, listen to our Halloween playlist full of ‘spooky’ songs, and make decorations out of construction paper. I got to participate this year, still, and I made our werewolf, witch, pumpkin, and a mummy! They all turned out great this year, so I figured I could post them as inspiration for others out there that want to start traditions. 🙂

Werewolf! I like how this guy turned out. 🙂

My 'Witch Flying over a Full Moon."

Like the gremlin? 😀

My spooky mummy.

Needless to say, we go all out. Hope everyone enjoys them, and might even take it as inspiration for their own Halloween festivities!

I <3 Halloween!


I am pumped for Halloween this year. I’m sad that I won’t be able to spend it with my dad, step mom, sister, and baby brothers, but I’ll be dressing up as a HP Death Eater with my buddies Loie and Marja!

My dad’s side of the family has Halloween traditions, they’re as important to us as Christmas traditions would be for any other typical family! We have a playlist of Halloween music (Feed My Frankenstein, People Are Strange, Boris the Spider, etc.) And we even make Halloween decorations! I’ll still be participating even though I’m five hours away from them. I’ve been assigned A witch, some pumpkins, and a mummy. Possibly a werewolf, too. >:)

I figured I’d better kick of October 1st with a little excitement and positivity. 🙂 I’ll be sure to post pics of the decorations!
