Just a note... Keep in mind that I am not in any way shape or form a doctor and you should consult yours before taking anything, these are just my suggestions.

You are gonna need a good Pain Reliever! Having a headache, sore throat, or just being achy in general sucks... Trust me you will need itIf you are all stuffed up with a cold a Decongestant will be a God send. It will give you a few minutes where you can get something done besides blowing your nose!Coughing your head off? Cough Drops, learn to love them. Personally I can't stand the things, but they work! You need to keep tabs on how high your temperature is going in case you need to go to the doctor or hospital, so keep a Thermometer handy.Tissues, and plenty of them. Do I really need t…

What I Did This Month... November

This has been a month of quite a few firsts... I got my first job!! I am working at a daycare with kids ages 2-12 in the afternoons after school. I am really liking it, and I don't have to work weekends or Holidays so is is great! And then I got my second job... Back in the Summer I asked my cousin about having a job in his clothing store, and he told me that I could be a gift-wrapper closer to the Holidays. So I am doing that on Saturdays! I mean, I'm not complaining (much), I am making good money! But oh my gosh... I have been so tired!
I started out the month making Triple Salted Caramel Cupcakes for my Mommy's birthday!
The next semi-interesting thing I did this month was go to my neighbor/sister(sort of) wedding! I was a Guest Book Person/Dress Fluffer and Holder/Unofficial Bridesmaid... In all reality I have absolutely no idea what I was! But it was a pretty wedding, and we had fun :) This was her getting her hair done...
Her and her (now) husband decided to do a first l…
