Holiday Look 2016

Image
Since we traditionally decorate for Christmas today in my house, I have decided to update my blog for the holidays as well.  

 Now that Thanksgiving is over (Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I know I am way late.), I can finally blast the Christmas tunes, wear this adorable snowflake sweater from American Eagle, and set up my sparkly silver tree in my bedroom. It seems like once Thanksgiving hits, everything speeds up and Christmas goes by way too fast. In fact, this season comes and goes faster every year.

 But I have been continually reminding myself to trust in God's plan.  Sometimes I fail.  I miss my old home and bedroom and dance studio and friends.  In those moments, it's time to count my blessings. 

 How about the new friends I have made here?  Making new friends is one thing every single person who's …

Five Character Crushes: A Silly Side of Me

Hello, everyone!  And happy November to you all.  I cannot believe that it is November already, and the holidays are getting closer and closer every day.  This is my favorite time of year, so you may expect some enthusiastic posts.  

I have been absent from Blogger for a short while; I got a bit busy.  I wanted to post, I truly did, but I couldn't find a spare moment.  Now that I have got one, I wrote up a silly little ramble that just shows you what a ridiculous, moony girl I can be at times.

Ok, so I decided to do a post on my character crushes because I know I am not the only girl who fantasizes about the guys in books and movies.  There are so many fictional men who are so far superior to the real life guys.  I know there's Mr. Darcy, but let's look beyond him...


1.   Faramir


    You may be surprised that of all the fantastic male characters in Middle-Earth I would choose him, but Faramir is way underappreciated.  He has so many good qualities.  First, he let Frodo …
