a week of the life of ME + im tiiiired

aloha friendsss!

it is the third week of JANUARYYYYY and actually, I feel like January isn’t flying by as fast as other months which is great. a nice sloooow start to 2020 after 2019 was SO FAST

next week some exciting stuff is coming to the blog

first of all

a) I finally got a new sd card (!!!!!!) after putting it off for like a long time and AHHH im so excited to start using my camera. a possible vlog coming to the blog soon??? maybe a painting one

b) ITS MY BIRTHDAYYYYYYYY ahhh so excited && other glorious things like cheesecake and bublyyyy

c) MY LAST WEEK OF LANGUAGE ARTS. not sure if this is going to happen but I have exactly 7 lessons/weeks of LA and if I do a lesson a day plus some extra…?? maybe?? also ps I am SO SO sick of Romeo and Juliet. soooo tired

ANYWAYYYYYS moving on to what this week was all abt

on Tuesday I reorganized our linen closet ( I shared a bit on Instagram so go check out thattt @ victoriapaigeblogs ) and it was quite satisfying. We had sooo much old bedding and sheets that really just needed to go. plus it was a disaster. Lol.

also on Tuesday..

mom: *is leaving the house* “oh can u bake my buns at 1? only for 15 minutes though”

me: thats easy

also me: *looks at time* 2 o’clock. “whoops.” *bakes buns for AN HOUR*

and BAM we have excessively large croutons

I also got REALLY bored yesterday and i aslo really wanted to listen to this audiobook I had been listening to but I like to do something at the same time sooo

I painted another fruit painting feature fruit that is orange. lets just call it papayas sequel painting. Lolllll

and so I painted a orange with blossoms and leaves and it was very pleasant. and a great way to relax.

okay and last thing. it has been SO WAAAARMMMM HEREEEE. like -2 C which seems like summer here LOL

now I am going to go finishing like my 5th essay of the month. ps: im very good at restating my opinion is different ways and forms over and over. lol.

and I am tired even tho I got like 10 hours of sleep last night heehee

anywayyyyys,

HAPPYYYY THURDAYYYYYY AND GOODNIGHT

sunday afternoon

aloha everyone it is SUNDAY and update update update I am TIREDDDD and bored and haven’t done any school since Friday. that’s a record for sure

anywayyyyys

yesterday I made my sister Amanda’s birthday cake and it had like llama and cactus sugar cookies on it and wow was that an experienceeeee not to remember, like I don’t want to make another cake for awhile ha

me: “oh don’t touch the llama, I need to take a pic quick”

Hannah: *breaks 1/2 of the remaining legs off* “uh oops”

LOL

and then, this afternoon I decided to finish “Emily of new moon” and aaahhh it was SO GOOD how could I expect any less of L M Montgomery?? It was just too good. I love it.

also, last week was like the coldest week of the year here in Canada with temps of like -35 C and it was freeeeeeezingggg but last night was like the absolute coldest and I almost froze to death but thankfully i’m still alive or I wouldn’t be writing this hahaaa

also another last week thing, we were like snowed in all week so we watched so many episodes of little house of the prairie which is officially one the most annoying shows ever yet I will still watch it sometimes

i’m pretty sure we covered ever single episode that

a) laura has a crush

b) harriet makes a remark that we rewatch 3 times

c) all the school bullies ever beat up laura and albert

and I was just REALLLLLLY cold all week

but this week we have tempertures of like less then -10 and every person around is like HALLELUJAH

hahhaaa

anyways. I am off to start “Emily climbs” bc we can never get enough of L M Montgomery ah

so. QQOTD what are you reading right now?????

The other day we cleaned another storage room, and it literally just consisted of random junk we’ve been hoarding for the past 25 years. It was badddd

And then of course, we have all the stuff we can’t get rid of bc either

a) it was wedding present ( LOL)

c) who knows, our smoke alarm we got rid of might like fall off the roof and we’ll have the watch the dvd it came with to fix it!!! ahh! can’t throw that gem out!

OHH and then we found serval more specialty items from my moms cow collection from twenty years ago. but who knows, maybe cow splotch travel mugs will be like the new thing !!!

LOL

But we still ended up with a truckload of stuff we threw out like random boxes and just GARABAGE in particular

we have so many diaper boxes ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ that’s how you can tell this stuff is old, my youngest sibling is 11 ๐Ÿ˜‚

and we also added several more items to our donation pile yayyy

Blogmas was SO FUN. I thought I would be hate myself for forcing myself to post every day but I enjoyed it SO much! it’s definitely such a fun challenge that got me excited about blogging again and I had such a blast writing all the posts, even if was only 17 days haha

Anyyyyyywayyyys, hopefully I’ll post a few more times on here before 2020!

amazing toothpaste sales && i have a minor obsession || day 17 of blogmasssss

aloha everyone!

todayyyyy i went christmas shopping a little bit and AHHHH GUESS WHAT

so i also ran out of burts bees toothpaste and i was sooo sad bc that meant i had to spend a good 7$ on it or use Crest ( and i used crest for like two weeks and WOW, it definitely does not reach the level of BB’s. )

SOOO i was just checking at a drug store for Burt’s Bees stuff and AAAHHHH GUESS WHAT

the toothpaste was on CLEARANCE. and it was $3.50 ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ

so naturally i bought a couple because it was SO CHEAP

and i thought i’d share a few things i LOVE abt this toothpaste

it’s just so good

THE PACKAGE AND TUBE CAN BE RECYCLED

i love that was made with so much thought! and isn’t that the NEATEST thing ever?? you can read more about recycling the packaging on their website. they also say the are “follow the example of the bees” and โ™ป๏ธ RECYCLING โ™ป๏ธ which i lovvvve

ITS SO CUTE

the package is the CUUUUTESTTT AHHHH ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ it has a little bee imprint on it and the honeycombs and i LOVE it

IT TASTES SO CLEAN

it does say it is “fresh and clean” and it really is! compared to regular toothpaste it has suuuuuch a clean taste and fresh minty flavour which is so nice! ๐Ÿ˜

i know i talk about this toothpaste so muuuuch but srsly it’s AMAZINGGGGG

I may or may not have a toothpaste obsession ๐Ÿ˜‚

not your classic christmas music faves && I almost ruined my reputation || day 16 of blogmas

ALOHA
and

AHHHH guess whatttttt guys.

I almost ruined my reputation.

I went to bed the other night and then realized something awful

I WAS WEARING SOCKS.

ahaha, if you’ve been reading these 25 days of blogmas you probably remember in THIS post I mentioned I did not get sleeping with socks on. its soooo uncomfortable.

but I was REALLY tired that night and not to disappoint, I took the socks off.

and I did not ruin my reputation

but almost.

ANYWAYS, ( I feel like I say “anyways” wayyyyy too much. any one have recommendations for his replacement?)

I JUST started listening to Christmas music. super late, sorryyyyy

and I decided to share some music I lovvve around the holiday season that isn’t the classic “joy to the world” or “silent night” (nothing against those btw hehe)

here goesss

GOD REST YEEE MERRY GENTLEMEN || tenth avenue north

I don’t really listen to tenth avenue north but I really like this version of the song by them! they added an original twist to the old song so its a fun one

BABY BOY || for king and country

I actually didn’t think id like this one but I listened to it and its greeeeatttt, a new favorite of mine! definitely add this one to your playlist!

LIKE ITS CHRISTMAS || jonas brothers

this is a super cute one for the holidays! it definitely gives all the Christmassy viiibes

WHAT A GLORIOUS NIGHT || sidewalk prophets

this is a great one too but not my TOP favorite, but I do like listening to it every once and awhile during the Christmas season!!

SO THERE YOU HAVE IT. give give them a listen and i’d love to hear one song you’ve had on repeat this holiday season!!!

cleaning 1/like 6 storage rooms || day 14 of blogmas

ALOHA friendsss! today was Saturday and there nothing better then to spend Saturday decluttering and CLEANING right??

todayyy we tackled one of of our many storage rooms (this one was basically just random stuff from my younger sisters rooms that they have been hoarding for the past while.

Whenever I see that storage room, I cringe and die a little bit inside.

And SO we finally decided to decluttering and make actually use of that room

and then we threw out FIVE BAGS OF GARBAGE and we also have been hoarding VCR’s for yearrrrrrs and so those all went too hahaha

and goodwill got a good pile ;)))

quotes from the cleaning fun-ness

“oh look another pair of scissors!!” “how many is that now?” “oh, just 13”

“WHY DO WE HAVE SO MANY HOT GLUE GUNS AHHH”

“we can’t give these books to the library because we literally bought ALL these books from the library…”

ANYWAYYYYYS,

what did you do this saturdayyyyy???

Aloha friendssssss!!! it is the thirteenth day of blogmas and TODAYYYY we’re going to be discussing weirdly random things like how I forgot about the hottub and it overflowed, and I was doing a timed math test && also in the middle of cleaning the laundry room after I was putting away so towels that have been sitting in the living room for days, and then I saw how messy our laundry room was so yeah. one random thing leads to another ahaha

So I was supposed to be watching the hottub being refilled because the filter got changed and I TOTALLLLLY forgot and it overflowed then I started doing a Math test lol and then went and helped mop up that disaster and rushed back to my math and realized I forgot allllllllllllllllllll about blogmas yesterday hahahaha whoopssss
