What I Got for Christmas 2017

Hey guys! Long time no talk.

First off, I suck. I suck really really bad. I failed at this whole Blogmas thing and I’m not even going to try to pick it back up. I’ve accepted defeat this year. But next year watch out Blogmas because I’m going to kick your ass. Next time I won’t be sick half the month or break a rib. Sorry to everybody who I let down. Things happen. I felt like I couldn’t write something everyday that was 100% my best. There was also some dumb stuff that was happening in this town that was distracting me from this blog. But I’m back! So get ready for my 100% best posts from now on. I’ve gotten a lot of sleep (It’s 2:31 in the morning at the moment) and I’ve gotten rid of all sickness that I’ve had.

Now, get ready for a Christmas haul.


At my friend Christmas party Carly got me the strawberry squishy, some bath bombs, a pickle (not shown) , some lip gloss, and a pack of chokers. Yes, she got me a pickle. Every year we get each other a pickle. This year I gave her a pickle on our 6 year friendaversary.

Samm got me the two coffee candles, the coffee KCups, some bath bombs, and a painting she made me.

Andrew got me season one of Stranger Things because I’m obsessed.

What I got for Christmas 2017

Andrew got me the heated blanket since I’m always cold. He also got me a choker I’ve been wanting for months now. I didn’t take a picture of it because I’m wearing it. But here’s what it looks like:

What I got for christmas 2017 choker

It’s super cute. I love it so much I probably won’t be taking it off for awhile haha.

Andrew’s super awesome mom got me a salt lamp, Dunkin’ Donuts coffee KCups, a really cute journal, and the emoji pillows. Smokey loves to cuddle with the poop one.

My parents got me $50, the Pure Clay face exfoliator mask, the hydrating face masks, a $50 gift card to Target, the silver choker, and the lip gloss.

That’s what I got for Christmas! What did you all get? Let me know in the comments!

Christmas Cookies

It’s the week where I spend the most time in the kitchen. The week I look forward to every year. The week before Christmas: Cookie Baking week.

My mom goes all out making Christmas cookies for my family… and Andrew. This year we made peanut butter, chocolate chip, pumpkin and sugar cookies. By we, I mean my mom made them and I was the honorary taste tester like I’ve been for 18 years.

We spend all week baking cookies and it’s so fun. This year it’s a little different because there’s no snow on the ground. Normally there is, so we haven’t really been in the cookie baking spirit. It’s been weird. Still hoping for a white Christmas! Like my mom said, “It’s highly unlikely, but it’s possible.”

Christmas Party #1

On Sunday, I had a Christmas party with 5 of my closest friends. (That’s why I didn’t post… oops.) So I’ll sum up what happened that day that made me forget about this blog. Don’t ask why this took until Tuesday at midnight to post because that I don’t have an answer for that.

First, I kinda didn’t wake up until 11…. totally not like me. Normally, I’m up by at least 9-10, but I didn’t get home until 1:30 in the morning and didn’t fall asleep until 4:30. I was a mess. When I woke up I had several cups of coffee in an attempt to wake me up. Andrew was soon going to come over and make his food he was bringing to the party. Everybody brought something to eat, I’ll get into that in a minute.

Carly, her boyfriend, her baby, Samm, Andrew, Keigan and another friend came. Carly brought chips. Samm brought brownies, homemade salsa and tortilla chips. Andrew brought cheese dip. Keigan brought pickle rolls and I made cheese ravioli. Weird combination, but we’re all weird, so it worked out pretty well haha.

We even tried to get Smokey into the Christmas spirit.

He wasn’t really having it…

We all got each other presents so we spent a bit opening and laughing at what we got each other. The best thing I got was from Carly, which was a pickle. Yes, a pickle. Long story.


After all that was over we spent 3 hours in my kitchen, talking and cracking up at our own stupidity. It was nice to sit down with everybody and have a good time without any drama or problems caused by others. During that 3 hours Andrew managed to eat literally everything. At the end of the night there was absolutely no food left… surely made us feel fat.

It ended with this:

Carly: The baby shit.
Andrew: The baby lost her shit! Literally!!
Andrew: *loses his shit* *Starts laughing so hard he starts crying, snot running out of his nose, and drooling everywhere*
My friend: Are you seriously crying?! You’re a vagina.

That was my very eventful day. We all slept pretty good that night. That’s my excuse for not posting.

Christmas Wish List

Hey everyone. Welcome back.

Today I’ll write about what’s on my Christmas wishlist this year.

The first thing I’ve been obsessed with lately are necklaces. Especially the cute little chokers.


Christmas Wishlist Choker.jpg

How cute is that? I’m so in love.

Next is of course, Bath & Body Works. You can never have enough of that.

Since I have really long hair, I don’t like to wash it everyday, or any day for that matter. So when I have plans and don’t want to wash my hair, I’ll throw a beanie on. Which is the next thing on my wishlist.

Christmas Wishlist Beanies.jpgCoffee Mugs. Lots and lots of coffee mugs.

Some other little things on my list are:

  • A bullet journal
  • Candy
  • Clothes
  • World Peace 
  • Lip gloss
  • Anything and everything that has to do with Shane Dawson

The last one seems far fetched doesn’t it?

Note: Guys I got a PO Box!! So if you wanna send me a letter or become my pen pal go for it because I have no life, no friends and no hobbies besides writing haha. Man, I’m a little nerd. But I would LOVE to write to everybody and make their day a little bit brighter.

I love all of you guys so much. Thank you for making all of this possible. Because of all of you, I’m living my dream. I couldn’t have done it without every single one of you who take time out of your day to read what this small town girl has to say.

That’s all I have to say for now.

Favorite Christmas Songs

I’ve seen so many people do this already so I guess it’s my turn haha.

If you want to see some more Christmas song posts, go check two of my wonderful friend’s blogs.

Now, time for me to tell you everything I love to listen to. I don’t really listen to the classics as much as I do covers of songs and new artists.

Justin Bieber: Mistletoe

Taylor Swift: Last Christmas

Megan & Liz: It’s Christmas Time

Justin Bieber Ft. Busta Rhymes: Drummer Boy

Frosty the Snowman

Rocking around the Christmas Tree

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Where Are You Christmas

I don’t really listen to a lot of music if you can tell. I’m more into trap. But during the holidays I make a little tiny exception.

Here’s a little update since this post was very short.

I’m allergic to Christmas. Literally. I’m allergic to Christmas trees so when Andrew’s family was decorating their tree, I stayed on the other side of the room and admired from a distance. Although, I had to take a picture with it and pray I didn’t accidentally touch it and break out into hives.

I didn’t get hives so I think I’m doing good!

My Christmas Decorations

Christmas is by far one of my favorite times of the year. I love everything about it. From decorating and baking to seeing family and watching Holiday Baking Championship on the Food Channel. Everything about it is great.

Each year after Thanksgiving (the day after to be exact), I decorate my room. Decorating my room takes about 7 hours to do. I have to dust everything, move a bunch of things down to the basement, bring everything up, get distracted by my phone 2,000 times, take 3 breaks and eat, start decorating, stub my toe and get mad, take a nap, then finally finish.

So here’s my Christmas decorations this year.

This first decoration is from Target. They’re snowflakes that light up.

Decorations: Light up Snowflakes

They were $5 so if you’re looking for a cheap but cute as hell decoration, Target is the way to go.

Decorations: Snowflakes

Here’s my other set of snowflakes. They don’t light up but they sure are cute. I stole these from my mom two years ago.

Decorations: Green Tree

Next is my traditional Christmas tree. This tree is very special to me because it’s my grandma’s. When she moved out of her house she gave it to me. I would decorate it with her every year when I was little so it seemed fitting for me to get it. The presents under it are fake. My mom gave me those for decoration a few years ago. I think it’s so cute.

Decorations: Coffee Table

Here is my coffee table. On the top is my favorite B&BW candle “Vanilla Bean Noel”. There’s a little Christmas tree in the center (It was also my grandma’s). I have a mailbox decoration that I stole from my mom a few years ago. Glad she doesn’t read these haha. I have a Starbucks cup that has little candy canes in it. The present on the left is from Menard’s that I got two years ago and on the opposite side is a candy tray full of my favorite candy: Reese’s. Lastly, behind the candy tray is a white and blue rose that Andrew got me a few days ago. I was sad so he wanted to cheer me up. Ain’t he just the best?

Then I have some Christmas cards and stuffies on the bottom.

Decorations: Top Coffee Table

Decorations: White Tree

Yes, I have two Christmas trees in my room. 1. I love Christmas. 2. My room is white and blue themed, so when I saw this tree I had to go for it. The ornaments I got at Walmart and the blue ones have glitter on them… there’s glitter all over my carpet over there but that’s alright! It’s pretty.

Decorations: B&BW Perfume

These are my top 3 favorite Christmas perfumes. Just had to throw this in there.

Decorations: Window Tinsel

On both of my windows I have silver tinsel up because why not?

Decorations: BedLast but not least is my bed. I love my bed. On it I have my pillow pet, two blue pillows, and an Illinois pillow because well, that’s where I live. Christmas wise, I have three really fuzzy blankets. The first one is a blue snowflake one (I have a thing for snowflakes), a red reindeer one and a Christmas quote blanket. I have a reindeer stuffy up against the wall too (Her name is Rudy). 

That’s my room! Hope you all enjoyed! Now I have to go send out some Christmas cards.
