Claw Machine Win

Hello humans of the internet! I went to the store because groceries and of course because I was bored I played the claw machine. It’s not that exciting of a blog post. I got groceries and played the claw machine and won! Now I have a super soft polar bear. It is stained with red on the back which is the exact same color as the red Santa that it was leaning on. I’m assuming that it had something to do with the color and the machine being in the sun. It’s a super cute polar bear and it matches some of Christmas decorations. I will wash it when I get home and see if the stain comes out.

Much love

Decorations

Hello humans of the internet! Yes, I’m decorating one tiny room for Christmas and I’m basically doing one little space at a time. Today the decoration area is the bookshelf (it’s secretly a night stand).

Christmas Tree

Hello humans of the internet! It’s December and that means it’s time to start focusing on Christmas for me at least. Some people are already doing Christmas, some haven’t started yet and some don’t celebrate Christmas at all. I got my Christmas tree today. I wish I could say it was some super cool and romantic outing where the two of us went to the Christmas tree farm. But he has work up to like 5 days before Christmas so I went to Walmart and sent him pictures of trees until we decided on one. Earlier in November they had a larger selection of trees and I had one mentally picked out. But obviously, that’s not how that works and that tree is gone. We have a different tree which I was calling the inferior tree. I’m not calling it that anymore because it’s not the tree’s fault that someone else bought the tree I had mentally selected as the superior tree. Here is the tree in the car on the way home.

Yes my car is a mess. Focus on the tree. Also let me know what you think? Have you put up your tree yet? Do you do fake tree, real tree, potted tree, or something else all together? Growing up we almost always cut down a tree in our yard.

What’s in my makeup bag?

Hello humans of the internet! Am I out of ideas for what to post this Monday but still feel motivated to post regularly? Maybe. But I also thought that this would be fun. Do you want more dyslexic specific posts? If so, ask me some questions about it because I don’t know what you want to know. Until then I want to talk about make up.

Travel Turkey

Hello humans of the internet! I’m traveling for Thanksgiving. When I was younger my family would put a toy turkey on the dashboard when we were traveling on Thanksgiving. We called him the travel turkey. He wore a little pilgrim hat. He was great. I honestly don’t remember when or how he came to be. I’m sure one of my older siblings remember and I’ll ask them and let you know what they say. Because I’m going to be traveling I’m bringing my own travel turkey.

This is what he looks like.

Unrelated to the travel turkey, I won’t be able to travel with Peggy. She’ll be staying with my parents and this is the first time since she came home that I’ve spent the night away from her. I feel like she’ll be totally fine and I’m being dramatic because she is in fact a dog.

I hope everyone is having a good day and prayers for everyone that is flying

Much love

Thanksgiving Nails

Hello humans of the internet! I’m gonna be traveling for Thanksgiving this year so, I’ve already done my nails. I thought about trying to make a tutorial of that. But, it turns out taking pictures of your nails while painting them is almost impossible. Also realizing that I should have just done one room at a time. It was really hard to take pictures with wet nails. I only have one good picture of the nails. Luckily it’s the picture of them all done.

In person the glitters reflect rainbows. But that was really hard to photograph. I’m sure it’s possible and I’m just bad at photography.

Christmas Gnomes

Hello Humans of the internet! I’ve decided to make a coupe of DIY type posts about making Christmas decorations this year. I also feel like I should post those now if you actually want to make them for your decorations because you would need to make them before you decorate and I think most people start decorating after Thanksgiving. At least most people in the US. I don’t know when you decorate. Decorate whenever it makes you happy.

On to the gnomes. Personally, I love gnomes, not specifically Christmas gnomes. I have a small collection of tiny gnomes for my house plants. Back when I was either in middle or high school, I made some pinecone gnomes, which I need to see if I still have. Today, I’m making felt gnomes. It’s pretty easy all you will need is

  1. felt
  2. yarn
  3. hot glue

Then, cute out one triangle, and one square, I used red, green, and blue felt for all of my gnomes. You will also need an oval of a tan color felt.

Glue some yarn to the bottom of the triangle and cut the loops.

Then glue the triangle and square together, you can cut little rounded edges on the bottom of the square but I don’t really feel like it matters.

Then glue on the nose.

Now, you see how fast and easy it is to make a gnome and if you’re like me and have too much felt you can make some. At least I don’t have too much felt. Now I have too many gnomes. I will update this when I know what to do with them.

Much love,

I Guess It’s Christmas?

Hello humans of the internet! It’s November 10th. I know we haven’t had Thanksgiving yet. Yesterday, one of my best friends and I went Christmas shopping. And apparently it’s Christmas.

Happy Halloween

Hello humans of the internet! It’s finally Halloween! I had plans for the day. I was going to wake up early to do my makeup, put on my bat costume, dress up Peggy and take pictures before work. But if you remember, I’ve been sick, so I slept in, went on the shortest walk Peggy has ever experienced and got to work with no makeup, but at least I had cat ears on.

Then I hung out with a coworker’s baby. (Don’t worry, my sickness isn’t contagious) She was dressed as a butterfly, it was adorable.

My coworker and I made a sticker for my suitcase.

When I got home, while I was getting Peggy’s Halloween costume out, she pooped inside for the first time since she was 2 months old. Last time she pooped in the house she was only 10 lbs. In the least graphic way possible, she pooped so much it took 2 large poop bags to pick it up. 2. And she didn’t just poop in the house. She pooped on my momma’s rug.

So, no she doesn’t have a cute picture of her Halloween outfit. She is in time out. Well not anymore, but now I’m tired from cleaning the rug.

Anyway, Halloween has been fun. But, I’m honestly ready to get ready for Christmas. Which is the scariest thing this year. I’ve become a mildly sentimental adult that enjoys the joyful spirit surrounding Christmas. I think we can all blame Schulz.

Eye Doctor Appointments with dyslexia

Hello humans of the internet! What do eye doctor appointments have to do with dyslexia? Well, at the eye doctor, you have to read a poster for them to figure out your vision. So, if you can imagine for a moment, that letter is perfectly in focus, you just have no idea if it’s an S or a Z. And then you’re just sat there in silence until the doctor goes, can’t read that one? And you’re like, yes and no. No, but not because the prescription is wrong. I just can’t read…like I can read. If that was a sentence I would be able to figure out the meaning probably. But not the letters with no context clues. I can’t scan the paragraph for words that I can figure out and use them to solve the puzzle. There is no puzzle. It is just random letters. Also, bat ears in spooky waiting room lighting that me look blonde? (Yes, I go to the doctor a lot. None of it is super serious)
