i consider you my friends...


I just recently finished the book Delirium by Lauren Oliver. WONDERFUL,WONDERFUL!  A must read. 
I truly suggest every single ONE of you read it. Atleast google the summary and you'll be hooked.
But ANYWAYS;;; I finished and was terribly thrilled, but angry at the ending. I was literally so involved with it that I sent my boyfriend a WHOLE page of the book, spent my time texting it to him and was like freaking out. I'd heard that it was a series so I got to the kindle store and i'm like YEAH, I'LL BUY THE NEXT BOOK.

psych.... the next book doesn't come out until MARCH SIXTH. I really about killed over. I'm like you're kidding me. I even told my parents. "I'm not eating until March 6th." 

PLEASE EVERYONE READ THIS BOOK & while you're at it, write a letter to Lauren Oliver  & her editor to PLEASE move the release date to like TOMORROW.

This is the next book . 
March sixth cannot come fast enough!

I consider you guys my friends, so I vent to you:) I hope you don't mind.

Have any of you read Delirium? What did you think of it?

 I went to my brother-in-law's aunt's for Thanksgiving and enjoyed a huge turkey and tons of other delish dishes. What did you do for Thanksgiving? Do you have any traditions?

"Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!" 2 Corinthians 9:15

It's officially Black Friday Eve.
...or Thanksgiving. The one with the turkey,family, and food. Now does it ring a bell?

So go be thankful, eat tons of food and enjoy.


What are you thankful for this year?

you're mean one,mr.grinch.

Christmas is my all time favorite holiday.
...but it's not all it's cracked up to be. When you watch movies, families are always so jubilant and peaceful. Everything just seems to fall into place. Christmas time usually seems to fly by because of all the shopping, stressing and cooking. Christmas has turns into a way for companies to make money. Children expect toys and tons of presents at Christmas. That is all they see Christmas as. I am finding that is all I see Christmas as too, a reason to go shopping and to ask for stuff I'd never receive before. I do not expect much for Christmas considering it is not all blown out of proportion at my house anymore. Santa Claus is never a huge excitement on Christmas Eve. I stay up late like any other night, I am the youngest at the age of 17.  I do have a nephew and niece now, but they are still pretty young. Maddox(2) recognizes Santa as Claus and knows that he says, "ho,ho". I do not believe it has quite clicked yet that Santa brings gifts. I remember always getting so excited that I would get to go to the mall and take a picture on Santa's lap and leaving cookies & milk for him. I usually left carrots for the reindeer to and I was overjoyed when I found remains of the carrots at the barn the next morning. I just knew Rudolph had dropped it. Christmas is a jubilant time, but for the wrong reasons.
Christmas is when huge sales start and malls skyrocket in sales. Tons of places are hiring extra help,which could be good for the economy. Christmas is a celebration of Jesus's birth. Even though he wasn't technically born on December 25th, it is a day set aside to celebrate the birth of a miracle child and Saviour. I despise the commercialism of Christmas, yet I get so wrapped up into it.

American Eagle was having free two day shipping and a 40 percent off the entire store sale and it ended at midnight tonight. I was scrounging to find the perfect gift and save some money at the same time. I clicked to redeem my code so I could see what my subtotal would be and the SITE WENT DOWN. I truly had a mini heart attack. When I read the page, I was overjoyed. They extended their sale until SATURDAY. (by the way the code to receive forty percent off your order on American Eagle's website is 72429831) I really hope I get my Christmas shopping down early this year, but I probably will still be rushing a couple days before realizing I forgot a few. Gift cards ALWAYS work.


I went to the parade today with some family and friends and greatly enjoyed it. My nephew loved dancing and getting candy. (I'll post pictures soon).

all the single LADIES.

Women always wish for their boyfriends and guy friends to be gentlemen, but why should they if we aren't ladies. 

This is very important. Do not date a guy that only treats you well to make you do stuff. You deserve to be treated well even when you don't act like you should. 

Every single one of you was born beautiful and always will be beautiful. 

This was added for humor:) 

so important.

Always remember you are beautiful, worth it and loved.
Psalm 45:11 "The King is enthralled by your beauty, honor Him for He is your Lord."
