Monthly Wrap Up: February 2017

Monthly Wrap Up: February 2017

February went by much quicker than January did but it was just as rough. Everyone had such high hopes for 2017 but so far it hasn’t been too great. My reading goals have been doing pretty good though which I’m impressed with since I’ve had a lot going on this month. Let’s all cross our fingers that March goes by much smoother. Here’s a wrap up of what went on last month: THREE EXCITING THINGS THAT HAPPENED LAST MONTH I got  my two baby hedgehogs this month! Probably the one positive thing that happened.

Monthly Wrap Up: November 2016

Monthly Wrap Up: November 2016

As I write this we’re anticipating our first snow storm! Nothing major of course, it’s too early for that, but 15 cm is what they’re calling for if it doesn’t turn to rain. So December could start off with a pretty layer of snow or a big pile of slush. While I try not to think about that, here’s what happened last month. THREE EXCITING THINGS THAT HAPPENED LAST MONTH Christmas decorating! My tree and lights are all up and everything looks so festive! My blog is back up and running!

Monthly Wrap Up: September 2016

Monthly Wrap Up: September 2016

GUYS. Fall is here! I’m so happy! I think it’s my favourite because the weather isn’t too hot or too cold. It’s just cool enough for me to wear lots of sweaters and boots. I love it! Plus all the apple cider stuff is out which I love way more than the yummy pumpkin spice things. (Don’t hate me!) It has been a rough month for reading. Me and Alice @ Alice’s Book Vault have planned a new feature that goes for the rest of the year. Super excited for that but I’ve been in a huge slump for the […]

Is it bad that I’m tired of summer and can’t wait for fall? Shh don’t tell anyone. THREE EXCITING THINGS THAT HAPPENED LAST MONTH I binged watched Stranger Things.

I spent the whole day soaking up the sun […]

Monthly Wrap Up: June 2016

Summer here I come!! THREE EXCITING THINGS THAT HAPPENED LAST MONTH I started a new diet because I like torture. Ugh. Then I quit said diet because I suck and apparently I really need sugar or bad things happen. So now I’m on a new eat healthy kind of diet. I finished Orange is the New Black and Game of Thrones seasons! Woo! I mostly just hung out in the sun. That’s my favourite thing to do!
