November Faves

Television
Green Gables Fables. Okay, this is not exactly television--this is a YouTube web series. And if the name didn't give it away, it's a modern-day adaptation of L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables, which is one of the best children's books/series ever made. Instead of Prince Edward Island, this web series is set in Avonlea, Saskatchewan. So far there have been about 35 episodes, with additions here and there in the form of hacking (hahahaha . . . not the bad kind) or Q & As. They also recently brought Gilbert onto the show, and while I didn't like him that much at first, he's really grown on me. The entire adaptation is very tastefully done and I think you should check it out :)

Blessings // 1

Hello, my friends. This is going to be the start of a new series here on the blog entitled “Blessings,” as you'll see above :) I'd love to do this once a week, but I can't promise that because of my weird posting schedule which is never ever the same. I also plan on setting a goal of how many blessings I can reach before this series comes to an end--do you have an idea of where would be a good place to stop? Aaaannyway . . . let us begin.
1//White chocolate mochas
2//Hearing “It's Good to Be Alive” on KLOVE
3//Getting an exceptional grade on my biology exam
4//Helping Dad set up for the dodgeball tournament
5//A sister who has the best ideas ever, is such an encouragement to me, and an inspiration to me in every facet of my life

Rebekah Rose // Installment 2

I did go into town this morning to help my dad load and unload wrestling pads and a sound system for the school district's annual dodgeball tournament, and I reeeaaally liked my wintry outfit, but didn't take any pictures. I needed to take the horses more water (it's about 25 degrees here with lots of snow) and then snap their blankets on because it'll probably be below zero tonight. Of course, Drem evaded me for ages because she's scared of the blanket, and Splash was just aiding and abetting her in her insubordination. :P

Annnywaaaaaay . . . since I didn't get photos of my outfit this morning, I'm going to show you Rebekah's outfit from early September.

Blog Party // Featuring Lilla Rose!

Ever heard of Lilla Rose? Well if you haven't, you need to! They sell a variety of amazing hair accessories, including flexi clips, hair sticks, hair bands, aaannd decorative bobby pins. I have one Lilla Rose flexi clip, and let me tell you--it is gorgeous and so easy to use! It's also secure and comfortable, and makes accessorizing your wardrobe that much easier!

November Goals

I'm loosely basing this on Hallie Jo's model, since I liked her idea of setting goals long after the New Year's Resolution time table has passed. I'm just figuring out my own “goals model,” so bear with me during this first installment.

When You Say Nothing At All

Yesterday I mulled over my inability to illustrate my life in eloquence, as so many bloggers I follow do. But recently as I perused one blog I follow--and this girl has the cutest style--I noticed that she said absolutely nothing of importance. A few words and the outfit photos.

And I don't want to be like that. The problem is that I realized that I am like that 90% of the time.
As a blogger I want to strive to write thought-provoking, relevant content. I don't want to overload my readers with preachiness, but I don't want to feel as shallow as a puddle. I want to be multi-faceted--able to write funny stories about my life, be succinct and even silent at times, and inspire emotion in other instances. I don't want to talk a lot and say nothing, because at that point it is better to have said nothing.

Riptide

In case you haven't noticed, a lot of the time I run out of words to say. Well . . . maybe sixty percent of the time . . . or more. And I'm talking relevant words here. Multiple bloggers whom I follow are capable of creating delicious phrases and ensnaring readers in their stories--and their thoughts. And if the successful bloggers I follow don't do that, they're at least able to recap their day (or forecast it) in an enviable way.
