September wasn't as busy as August, but it was a pretty fun month! 
Unlike all the other girls who walk this planet, I hate fall -_- It gets so cold! And everything dies... But all in all it is a pretty season, from the inside under covers ;)

Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday this month (and for the rest of this semester) I am interning in a second grade classroom :) Ic an't post any pictures, or even really tell you anything about it because of a confidentiality agreement I had to sign... but it is a lot of fun :) I love walking into the classroom and getting tons of little hugs!

 I spent the first week of September grounded, therefore missing the first dance after the football game :( That really was just no fun... at all. 

On the 14th was my papa and his twins birthday party!

They turned 70 :)

Have you ever heard Jason Aldean's song "Laughed until we Cried"? That's all I can think of when I see this picture :) I like that, and in some ways it makes me very sad too.
The next week was Homecoming at my school!! I don't know if you all have Homecoming at your schools, or how you do it if you do. Our Homecoming theme this year was "Can't Hold Us" by Macklemore and Ryan Louis. At my school we have pep rallies every morning before class, dress up days every day, and the school is totally decked out in decorations. And that is just through the week! Then comes... Friday night football! ;) And my favorite part about the football game? The huge dance after!
But I am getting ahead of myself! Let's go through the pictures:)

So every class has to make a banner to hang from the ceiling in the commons at school.
Somehow I got stuck making it this year... I'm not artistic! -_- 
And then came time to actually make it, so me and two other girls stayed after school for FOUR HOURS one day!! 
And this is the Masterpiece that appeared :)
We were seriously so unbelievably proud of ourselves that we couldn't even contain it! :)

And I just wanted to share this picture with you, this is what the floor looked like when we mover the banner... It almost looked cooler than the banner!

And when I came outside to my car after decorating the Banner and found this :) Love you too Breanna :P

Oh! And you can't forget the awesome smily face that went with it ;)

We decorate the teacher's doors for Homecoming every year for a competition. This year for the US History teacher's door we made a moon and one side, and the earth on the other. In the middle Uncle Si was floating planting an American flag in the moon and holding a Black Hawk by the tail (we played the Black Hawks Friday) saying "Hey Jack! Back in 'Nam we used to eat crow all the time!". And then beside him above the earth it said "Not even gravity can 'Hold Us' because the is 'Murica!" 
Cheesy as all get out, didn't make much sense, we got second place ;)
But anywaaaay, my friend was looking at the overalls we cut out for Uncle Si to wear and then holds them up to herself and says "Hey! These are Keechi sized!" ;)

On the first day of Homecoming our dress up day was "Fanatics Day". As you can see, me and my friend completely decked out in Carolina Tar Heels! ;)

Dress up day number two was "Superhero Day". I went all out for this one ;) I "borrowed" my little brother's Iron Man costume from a few Halloweens back (it is a full body suit!) and wore it with jeans. I got poked and prodded all day ;)

I didn't take a picture on day three which was "Thriftshop Day" (Get it, "Can't Hold Us" "Thriftshop"?;) Because I didn't really go all out for that one...
On day four we had "Classic Day". Me and my friend  decided to match and do 80's neon! See the knee socks and sandals? ;)

I also didn't take a picture on the fifth day, but it was school spirit day, and I can't tell you what school I go to anyway sooo... I guess it worked out ;)
But now I thought it would be a good time to explain to you how the last day of Homecoming works. We don't go to any classes, have two huge pep rallies, a teacher talent show, a student talent show, spirit competitions, and anythime we arent doing any of that we are out on the circle hanging out!

We had blow-ups this year! This may not look like a bad slide, but you never even touch the slide part... It was scary! ;)

And before I get into the football game and the dance I thought now would be a good time to tell you how the banner competition went... We lost :( And I promise I'm not just saying this because I was the one who helped make it, but the other ones sucked! We all know it is rigged for the seniors to win, but come on! At least let us have the banner!
So we were joking that we should just steal it and take it home with us... and then one of the girls did :O
It was one of the scariest and most amazing things I have done in my high school career!! We brought it back before the game that night, and no one ever mentioned it again...
The actual football game was pretty boring. We lost, but that isn't anything new ;) But I didn bring my (now) boyfriend to the game and dance with me! That was fun <3
I took this cute picture of my friend with her poster she made for her football player boyfriend at the game :)

The next Friday was my dad's birthday :) We had a little party for him and I made these cupcakes! They are Dark Chocolate with Peanut Butter filling and Cream cheese Frosting (recipe coming soon!)

It was also my friend Corbin's Birthday on the same day! I brought him a cupcake too :)
Check out his YouTube channel here:
My friend Anina made him a YouTube video for his Birthday, you need to watch :)
And after you have watched her video go check out her channel here:

And then the next day my church took a trip to Carowinds for Christian Music Day!!

We slept most of the way there, and aaall the way back, in a pile ;)

Our Youth Group :)
The last Sunday in October was Youth Sunday at our Church :)
Me and Kaitlyn took an initiative and lead singing, and sang a solo :) 
It is a lot more fun to do things like this when nobody is making you do it :)

And that pretty much sums up my September!
See you all next month!
:) <3 (:

Nadine West: Fourth Shipment

So this wasn't the most successful shipment ever, but I still got one nice piece out of it!  And they left me a sweet surprise which I'll tell you about at the end, so I wasn't upset at all!
This is actually two items from my shipment!  This outfit contains both the shirt and leggings from this month, and they kind of go together!  
Though I really liked the pattern of the leggings, they are much more like tights.  They were totally see through, which made me pretty sad.  If they were marketed as tights then I wouldn't be too disappointed, but these were called Leggings.  They retailed for $14.49, and I didn't keep them.
The shirt fit very well and was extremely comfy.  I have been looking for a shirt this color, so I was pretty excited to see it in my bag, even though it is pretty basic.  This shirt also retailed for $14.49, and I did elect to keep it!
These are the "Beauty Within" earrings, and I'm actually pretty sure I received the matching neckl…

Date Box: October

So you may or may not remember, about two Christmases ago I ordered a Date Box!  It had hot chocolate and mugs, with a gingerbread house kit (you can find the full review here).  My boyfriend as I had the most fun with it, and the mugs were gorgeous, so on a whim this October I decided to give it another try!
As stated in the last post, it is about $40 a month, which is a bit steep in my opinion, but if you really need some new date night ideas, then this would be a fun and creative way to get them.  If you search, you can find a discount code bringing the price of your first box down to $5.  I'm not going to post the code because it isn't mine to give out, but they are easy to come by!  They also offer a digital option now, which is $8 a month.  If you scroll down to the bottom of their about page there is a bar where you enter your email and they send you your first digital date for free, which seems to be a cooking class for two!
The experience is significantly more person…

Three Ways to Christmas Shop on the Cheap

Christmas shopping is something a lot of us tend to put off until the last second, and then are scrambling the week before Christmas to buy things just because you feel like you have to.  You end up buying something, at exorbitant obnoxious prices, that you know the person you are buying for won’t even like!

I came up with a few ways you can get awesome presents, not have to kill yourself trying to get them at the last minute, and not break the bank...
My first suggestion, is to shop in advance! I know, this seems super simple, but you wouldn't believe the difference it makes to start a couple months in advance, and just buy things you know the person would like as you see them.  This year, I stopped in an antique shop on my way to work one day, just to look around.  I ended up leaving with this gorgeous bowl, mug, and tea set with I am planning to give to family members, and because the place was about to close down, I got them for half off the original price!That leads me right in…
