If you are a frequent reader to my blog you know that I am a sucker for tags of any kind. If you are a new reader to my blog then thank you so much for stopping by! Hopefully, you will stay and enjoy many of my blog posts.
I found this lovely tag on @thissplendidshambles.com! Apparently, Megan on Goodread's made this tag. Tags are my favorite posts to fill out. Today is my brother's birthday and I have about an hour to kill before I have to go to his party. Since I have a little bit of time to kill... I thought I would get a post done on my blog.
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. It sucks that I always seem to crave sweets around the holidays. It makes it extremely difficult being diabetic. I have to constantly be watching my sugar intake and it's hard. Especially when your family is super into Christmas. I also love baking.
It is the holiday season and with it comes gifting. A lot of times I have no idea what to get for people. I often resort to reading other blogs like mine to find ideas. You can never go wrong with giving a person a meaningful book. The best gifts that I have ever received are books and not just because I am a bookworm. Most have been very powerful and have affected my life in some way.
The weather has been changing and nights are getting cold. It's also been getting darker so much earlier. I love nothing more than snuggling in pajamas and loungewear. Pajamas are always a must-have staple.
One day, I will finish this challenge. I cannot believe that I still haven't finished it after all these years. One thing leads to another and I forget to do it. I am finally on day 11 of the challenge though! For day 11... I am supposed to write about my most proud moment. However, I can honestly say that I don't think I can think of one.
The holidays are hard for most people. Add on having mental health issues it makes it 100% worse. Holiday's are notorious for being fast-paced. The lack of sleep, cold weather, and chaos can bring anyone down. I tend to miss family members that are no longer here this time of year too. The grief can become crippling at times. Also, I miss my family members in other states that can't celebrate with me. The bottom line is the holidays are hard but also wonderful at the same time.

I love learning about blogging and bloggers... So when I found this tag via @boundtowriting... I knew that I had to do it. I don't know where this tag originally came from. If you do please let me know in the comments below and I would be more than happy to credit them.
I love Christmas. Gift-giving is one of my favorite things to do. Little but cute gifts inside stockings are always super fun. Some of the best gifts that I have ever gotten have come from my stockings each year.
Christmas is just around the corner and it's so exciting. I feel like it was just Christmas last year. The year is just flying by. Lately, I have been in the Christmas mood and this girl has already created a new Christmas inspired playlist!
If you are a blogger and haven't utilized Pinterest to drive traffic to your blog.... you are missing out. Pinterest is one of the main sites that I use for site exposure and traffic. Every single month, it outways every other social media site for driving traffic to my blog. I honestly don't know what I would do without Pinterest when it comes to blogging.
This October marked two years of having my very own place. I cannot believe how fast the time has gone. When I moved out of my family's house... I had a lot of shopping that I had to do in order to feel comfortable in my very own place all by myself. This was the first time that I would have no roommates. (other than my dog)
A couple weeks ago... I started a new challenge The Goodreads Clean Up Challenge. It was super successful. In the fact that I was able to start cleaning up my Goodread's shelf. I figured it was time to do another cleanup session as I am terrible about adding even more books to my Goodread's shelf constantly. It's kind of ridiculous actually.
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. It's kind of ridiculous if you ask me. It's time to go back though... I have been gone since the end of September and frankly, I have tons of book mail and packages waiting for me to sort through. Getting mail is always exciting. I also miss my own bed.
Since being on the east coast, there's been a lot of rainy days lately. I am not used to it since I live in the desert in Phoenix, Arizona. It's been kind of hard maintaining motivation when it's been ugly and cold outside. While being out of the desert, I have come up with a couple ideas to still enjoy my day even though it's ugly out.
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.
I was tagged by the lovely chocoviv to do this tag. Anything fall-related makes me smile because it's my favorite season. So, when she tagged me... I knew that I needed to do it. Tags are some of my favorite posts to write. Thank you, readbytiffany for making this original tag.
There is nothing that I hate more than being sick. Your girl is currently sick and laying in bed blogging. The one good thing about being limited to your bed is being able to get lots of writing done on my blog. Not to mention reading! Those are pluses when it comes to being sick.
