I’m doing Blogmas 2018!

So you’re probably thinking…”umm…Grace….December started almost two weeks ago.” since this is my first time doing blogmas I decided I would do 12 days of blogmas instead of trying to blog every day for an entire 25 days. So basically, how this is going to work is starting tomorrow (12 days before Christmas) I’m going to post every day up until Christmas. These posts will usually be short and sweet because I felt that longer posts would be harder to keep up with (and quality over quantity ammiright?) πŸ˜‰ Anyway, I hope you enjoy these posts…see you tomorrow!

(Or someone else, I mean it is Christmas time πŸ˜‰ )

on thankfulness || poll results

Hello people of the internet, I’m back *waves* I apologize for the very long unplanned hiatus. I’ve gotten caught up with the craziness of fall/school and to be honest, I was procrastinating too much over these last few months. But anyway, you’re not here to hear why I haven’t been posting, you came to read this post. So I’ll just stop rambling now. πŸ˜‰


On thankfulness:

So thanksgiving is coming up soon (tomorrow, actually ;)- ) and the holiday is supposed to be about gratitude and thanking God for our blessings, right? It’s kinda sad then that on that day we tend to end up complaining more than usual: “Ugh, do I have to put up with insert annoying relatives name here today?” “I burned the pie, how come nothing ever goes right for me!?” “I can’t believe we missed that black Friday sale, this is ridiculous!”

While the purpose of this post isn’t to be all preachy and tell you you shouldn’t go Black Friday shopping or be upset that you burned something, maybe this Thanksgiving we can all (myself included πŸ˜‰ ) try to be a little more truly thankful. πŸ™‚

I’ve found that thanking God for specific things and going out of my way to notice things to be thankful for, makes me feel a lot happier and a lot more appreciative. One of the ways I tried doing that this fall was making a thankfulness wall/board. I just got some sticky notes and some cute washi tape and started putting them up in my room. I’ve been adding to it bit by bit and it’s been really fun to see it slowly grow.

…and now for the poll results… πŸ™‚


||Poll Results||

A few weeks ago, I posted a fall poll and promised y’all I would put the results in a later post…I meant to post them earlier this fall but…see above about me procrastinating πŸ˜‰

The poll questions will be in bold and the results/my thoughts will be in italics

Do you like pumpkin spice?

The answers were pretty evenly split between “YES OF COURSE” and “I like it, but not that much”. Shoutout to the one person who said “ew” though, you know who you are ;)-

As for me, I’m with the “not that much” people. I like the lattes but once we start getting to pumpkin spice Cheerios (and yes that is a thing) i’ve had enough pumpkin spice πŸ˜‰

Pumpkin bread or pumpkin pie?

PUMPKIN BREAD 4TW!

….and it seems like most people agreed with me ;)-

How much do you love fall?

Everyone gave a 5/5 so I’d say y’all love fall.

What are you thankful for this fall?

I loved getting to see what everyone was thankful for, so I thought I would share the responses with you…along with links back to their lovely blogs. πŸ™‚

“My family and friends” -Maggie @Dreaming of Guatemala

“My family!” -Laura @Flowers in my Basket

“The weather”-Shellymar @Amabilia Lifestyle

“My volleyball team”-Tania @ Write Owl

“My family and new relatives”-anonymous

“My family, friends, everything pumpkin and books” -Katie @ Katie, That Bookish Girl

What are you thankful for? Tell me in the comments! πŸ˜‰

Hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!

Fall Poll+Update

hi there- This post was going to be a September wrap-up post, but I didn’t have very many photos without other people in them or things to tell about from September….and I was dreading writing it anyway. But then I realized, wait, this is my blog, and the point of blogging is not what other people think about my blog. So I decided not to do a wrap-up post this month, and since I didn’t have time to write anything else, I made this poll for fun. The results will be posted in another post, and I have a bunch of other fun autumn posts planned for the next couple of months. πŸ™‚

Mini Mondays #13||things to remember this week

I know these are two completely unrelated things, but I think they are both so important to remember, especially with the craziness of school. I know I have a tendency to say things I don’t mean when I’m stressing over the school I have to do, so that’s where the verse comes in πŸ™‚ And the second thing is really motivational when I want to complain and say “school is useless, why am I doing this”

Happy Monday!

Fall outfit ideas||cozy clothes for autumn

blog-fall outfits

Since it’s fall, (and I know fall doesn’t technically start until Saturday, but I’m not waiting that long to break out the cozy sweaters and fall candles πŸ˜‰ ) I thought I would share some of my favorite fall outfits with y’all; links to the clothes will be below the outfits, in case you want to get yourself some cozy sweaters πŸ˜‰

This flannel is actually a dress that was too small for me so I just wore it with a pair of my favorite jeans and these shoes from DSW

Flannel-you can get flannels pretty much anywhere πŸ˜‰

Jeans- Old Navy

For this outfit, I tied a black T-shirt I had around this super cute striped dress.

boots- DSW

This is an outfit for those days when it’s a bit warmer, but you still want to look cute and cozy.

shorts- Target

shirt- Old Navy

shoes- DSW

This is probably my favorite outfit in this post ;), It’s just a knit yellow sweater and an overall dress that I threw on with these adorable cutout leggings

overall dress- h&m

leggings- Old Navy

shoes- Converse

This outfit is one of my go to’s when I want to look a little dressier but don’t want to wear a dress. I usually tuck the tunic top into my jeans and wear it with my pair of trusty black Converse.
