Hello, my friends!! *waves* 😀
Okay, so I know it’s already December 9th (HOW DID THAT HAPPEN), but I just really wanted to post one of these! XD
I have never done this type of post before, so just bear with me. Let’s see if I can make this interesting… XD
Highlights of November:
Doing NaNoWriMo and SUCCEEDING!!
It was really hard for me to keep up and fell behind a lot, but in the end I succeeded and that’s what matters right? I ate quite a bit of dark chocolate to help me through it… XD
AGH!!! They’re all SO beautiful!! I’m planning to post a bunch on LMF, so be on the watch for that 😉
When we got these pictures in literally all my mom and I did was look at them all day long. The photographer did an AMAZING job!
I don’t know if any of you know this already, but my family is quite musically talented. My dad has been a worship leader for years and he taught my brother, Jordan to play guitar and he served on the worship team for a long time, as well as Aaryn, my new sister in-law who sings beautifully! And my brother in-law plays the drums, so it was really awesome to get to see them all play together – they do an amazing job! It was super special this time because it was the last time for who knows how long, before Jordan and Aaryn moved away… <3
YES! *happy sigh* it was so awesome doing the Hillside craft fair again. Though there was rain, freezing cold, and major winds, we did have a lot of fun and the last day was perfect in every way!
I’ve been hesitant to try a latte for a long time, just cause I’m super picky and I love my frappés, but I finally gave in and I totally loved it! Even though I almost burned my tongue… XD
Sleeping over at Emma’s and cracking up at her insanity.
This night was just – BIZARRE! Emma was out of control crazy and I was laughing at her like all night! XD The one thing I don’t understand is how exactly does she drink from a water bottle so creepily?? LIKE HOW?! XD
No joke, I literally look over at her booth (we’re right across from each other, as you can tell in the picture) and she’s staring at me like this!!! And I don’t know, is she part Indian or something, cause she’s always sneaking up on me and I’ll turn around and she’s there staring at me with this creepy face!! XD It’s creepy, but hilarious. XD
Bundling up in a tablecloth at Hillside.
IT WAS FREEZING!!! It was raining, windy, and just – FREEZING!! My mom and I both wrapped ourselves up in tablecloths and put on hats, hoods, and scarves – we were cracking up! XD
Though this was a great day and we were all happy to be together, it was really bittersweet and not all of us were our normal, happy, crazy selves. This was our last family gathering together before Jordan and Aaryn moved away and saying goodbye to them that night, though it wasn’t our last goodbye, was extremely painful.
Saying Goodbye to Jordan and Aaryn.
My mom, dad, Jen, Jason, and I went over to say goodbye to them Friday night, the day after Thanksgiving. I can’t tell you how much we all hugged and cried. And though it was one of the hardest things, saying goodbye to them – I realized also how beautiful it was. That we as a family could come together with the freedom to cry and embrace like that over “losing” 2 beloved family members. I know it might sound silly that we were all crying so much, especially since they’re 6 hours away and I know some people have family even farther away – but we’ve always been together and we love each other so much. It was really hard to say goodbye, but I think we’re all doing a lot better now. <3
– Posting more often! I’ve really missed posting here, on LMF, HRMW, and on TEROW, so I’m really hoping that this month I can get a lot of posting done! 😀
– CHRISTMAS!!! No, no, this year it isn’t for the presents that I’m so excited (though I am excited for that, too… XD). This year I’m excited for Christmas because then our whole family will be together again! 😀 <3
– Work next week!! You all remember me saying that I got a job working in childcare, right? Well, we went on break and I thought I wouldn’t get to go back until January, but thankfully we get a day next week! I MISS THE CHUBLETS!!! XD (I can feel Emma glaring at me right now…. XD )
– Rogue One! ANYONE WHO IS EXCITED FOR THIS MOVIE PLEASE SAY SO! My sister and I are the only ones in our family who are excited for it. O_O
– Annndd… I can’t think of anything else right now. I’m just excited to see what else this month has in store for me! 😀

Sometimes it’s nice to get out of the house and pick up a little treat. And that’s exactly what Cecile did!
“This line is taking kind of long.” Thought Cecile. She had been waiting for 10 minutes just to get a drink and a cake pop.
“Thank you, Rebecca! We’ll call you when your drink is ready. Napkins and straws are to your left.” Said Saige, the barista.
“Okay, thank you!” Said Rebecca.
“I can help the next guest in line!” Said Saige while looking at Cecile.
“Hi, what can I get started for you today?” Saige asked her customer.
“Hi, I’d like a Tall, Strawberries and Creme’, doubled blended, please.” Cecile said politely.
“One, Tall, Strawberries and Creme’ and did you say double blended?” Saige asked, making sure she got the order right.
“Yes, that’s right.” Cecile replied.
“Okay and will there be anything else for you today?” asked Saige.
“Hmmm… How about a Red Velvet Cake Pop?” Cecile ordered.
“Alright, and will that be all for you today?” Saige asked.
“Yes.” Cecile replied nicely.
“Okay, you’re total is $5.50.” Saige said.
Cecile dug in her wallet and pulled out her Debit card.
“Thank you! I’ll get your cake pop and we’ll call you when your drink is ready.” said Saige.
Saige picked out the nicest looking cake pop for Cecile.
“There you go!” Saige said, “Napkins and straws will be on your left.”
“Thank you!” Said Cecile.
Eli was busy at work making all of the drinks.
“One Tall Mocha Frapp with Whip!” Eli called.
“Thank you!” Said Rebecca.
“You’re welcome!” Eli replied.
While Cecile waited for her drink she enjoyed talking to the girl who was in line in back of her.
Pretty soon, Cecile heard Eli call out,
“One Tall Strawberries and Creme’ double blended!”
“Annika, when your drink is ready, would you like to sit with me? Unless you have to be somewhere-” Cecile said.
“No,” Annika interrupted, “I was planning on staying here anyways and
I would enjoy some company.”
Annika and Cecile drank their Starbucks together and had a great time. Not only had Cecile gotten an amazing drink, but she made an amazing friend as well.
Have your dolls ever been to Starbucks?
