September...

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...
WE GOT AWAY WITH IT!!!!
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: www.youtube.com/ExpelDzn
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: www.youtube.com/CheekVideosTV

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 (:

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

My Petal Club

A new box!  And a PERIOD subscription box at that!  I love finding new boxes to try out, especially when they are this affordable!  This box is normally $6.99 per month, but if you use the discount code "SUMMER" on mypetalclub.com, this box will be only $3.50!  And let's be honest, one box of pads/tampons is usually more expensive than that, so why not give it a try??

So this box primarily consists of just the period products with very few extras.  This isn't one of the present, feel-good kind of boxes, it just provides you with the necessary products to get through the month, at an affordable price.
Step One The first thing you do on their website is choose the combination of products you will need.  Be warned, you aren't given as much of a selection if you order through Cratejoy like I did.  It worked totally fine and I still got the products I needed, but I like choice!  So I suggest going straight through their website.  You are going to get 30 products total…

Glossybox: August (A Cautionary Tale)

So let's talk about Glossybox...  Originally I subscribed when they had a special, three months for $30.  I thought it would be a cheaper way to try something new and see how I liked it, and maybe spice up my content.  I was sadly disappointed.  I wouldn't reccomend Glossybox to anybody.  My subscription was supposed to start in July, but that box never came.  I contacted them about it, and it took a month to get a reply simply saying they would look into it and get back to me the next day.  I waited another week before emailing them again, and at this point I was very upset.  After demanding a reply, explanation, and my box which I had paid for, lo and behold I finally received a tracking number, as well as 100 very useless "Glossydots."   I began to understand that this is not an individual problem and there were many people who didn't receive their boxes and were not getting a reply from their customer service department.  Yet they didn't seem to care.
