The Ultimate Book Tag


I found this lovely tag on @thissplendidshambles.com! Apparently, Megan on Goodread's made this tag. Tags are my favorite posts to fill out.

Bookish Naughty List Tag


I found this tag via @boundtowriting and it looked like so much fun that I had to do it. Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year. My cookie cravings have been at an ultimate high.

Especially when your family is super into Christmas. I also love baking.

It's getting colder in Pennsylvania. In fact, there is a chance of snow flurries this week. I go back to Arizona on the 13th and I am super sad. It's still in the 80s back at home.

October Wrap Up


It's Halloween as I am sitting here writing this post. I have nothing exciting planned for the day. There's a tornado warning for Eastern Pennsylvania tonight with wind gusts up to 50 mph! This girl is staying under the covers with her little Shih Tzu. I have never been the partier anyways. Being out in the country, my Grandparents never get trick or treaters. That's the only downside to being out in the middle of nowhere... you don't get to see all the little cute kids in costumes.
