feeling blue by AudreyElizabeth featuring bow dresses
I recently joined Polyvore, and decided to create my first outfit! At first, I was completely and totally overwhelmed by all of the products they have on the site, but I managed to pick out a few items I loved. I really love this dress and these booties, but a wholly tan outfit is kind of boring. Thus, the blue pops of color. (love, love, love) Also, just for a fair warning, I'm going to be doing a lot of these in the next couple of weeks!

Isn't this just the sweetest song?? It's from the veggie tales movie, Snooderella. It's a great reminder to us that no matter what someone will always love us. No matter what.

*Rudolf the red nosed reindeer, had a very shiny nose...*

Since it's Thanksgiving, I'm going to mention just a few things that I'm thankful for:
God, my family, my friends, a roof over my head, nice clothes, great food, my somewhat annoying 5 brothers, my baby brother who always makes me smile, our piano, my flute, school (well, only writing), good books, movies, the internet, the two super blogs I write for, all of my favorite blogs, my drawing, acting, singing, crafting, and musical skills, my comfy cardi that I wear all of the time, fashion, and of course, all of you! Have a very happy Thanksgiving, and, if you want, comment below on what YOU are thankful for!

Most boots over at American Eagle are $10 off, so these cute 'n' comfy boots are definitely on my want list!
DownEast Basics has a lot of cute stuff, but this skirt is so pretty it's beyond words!
Sorry for such a short post, I'll write more later!

What you need:
Pair of headphones
Take the headphones and cut off the ear buds, leaving a little bit of cord attached. With the needle, poke a hole in the cord and string the wire through. Twist the ends of the wire twice with the pliers. Loop the wire, with the headphone attached, through the earring hook and twist so it doesn’t come undone. That’s it! Now you have a pair of unique earrings. Voila!!

Music is a huge influence on society. Artists who rule the charts on iTunes have a stunning effect on listeners' minds. Studies have shown that songs with positive messages help people to be more positive, so why wouldn't it be the same for negative messages?
That brings us to Katy Perry. I'd post here lyrics on here, but, frankly, I don't even think that should go on a Catholic blog. With sites like girlslife.com and other teen sites recommend such filth its no wonder that her new album was #1 on the charts for so long and is extremely popular with teenage girls. About a month ago, I was riding my skateboard down to the park, when I saw this girl, maybe about 9, walking listening to "Teenage Dream" blasting so loud that I could hear it clearly through her headphones. She had a full face of make up, tight clothes and just looked like a mini pagan 17 year old. I was shocked. I'm gonna cave and give you the lyrics: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20101004013547AAY1bSX . This so sad, people.
Anyway, be careful about the music you listen. It will affect you and your life.

Since my family just started getting Netflix movies ( you can even get the on you Wii!!), we finished 2 movies that we started the other day(Home Alone 2:Lost in New York, and The Sand Lot 2, both pretty good!! Sandlot has bad language though) then we watched Nanny McPhee!!! It's really great prob more for little kids but i still LUV it!! lol.
After that we had and early dinner (we had breakfast for dinner!!) then we went upstairs to play "News Station", a game me and my brother made up when we were like 5 or 6. We used to write up a news paper and everything, but now since we have a video camera we make a movie of it!!
Yesterday, for my dads birthday, we went to Muir Woods which is a hiking place with a bunch of red wood trees. To get there though we had to go over **drum roll please!!** the Golden Gate Bridge!! which, BTW is not gold its red. Then we went through a tunnel that had rainbow painted over it!! I took videos of both and might post them L8r.

I love this plaid hoodie. I'm quite tempted to actually buy it.
Boots are great look over skinny jeans or with patterned tights and a skirt for church. These boots are just the perfect length, too.
I love argyle and these socks will keep you warm and will let you pull off argyle without looking too golfer.
Have fun shopping!

As you know(or don't), I am homeschooled. So I'm sharing with you My 10 Suggestions for Homeschoolers:
10. Get Ready. Take 10 mins before you start to get dressed and brush your teeth instead of staying in your pjs all day. It will help you get into "day mode". Maybe I'm the only one who has a tendency stay in pajamas, but I doubt it.
9. Take Breaks(But Not Too Many). I take a five minute break every hour or so, more if something's especially super hard. It helps to take a quick breather.
8. Ignore your annoying brother. He'll go away. XD.
7. Say a Quick Prayer. I usually say a quick one before school and tests.
6. On the Go. If you have to go somewhere during the school day, take your work with you. Little tidbits of work can make a huge difference.
5. Find What Works for You. Trial and Error is the best method sometimes.
4. Get Cute Supplies. I don't know about you, but my brain functions better if I'm writing with a pink pen on a green notebook. :).
3. Swap Tips. Have homeschooling buddies? Compare your strategies with them.
2. Clean Your Desk and Room. It's hard to focus in a pigsty.
1. Be Thankful. Imagine if you had to go to a school. That always makes me stop complaining.
And as always, HAVE FUN!!!!

I love plaid shirts. I have one almost exactly like this that I wear open with a tank top underneath or closed and tucked in to a skirt.
My new must-read is What Would a Nerd Wear
I have the oldest camera in the universe but I still get a ton of use out of it. It's so fun make videos and take pictures.
I'm working on a really cool post for tomorrow or Wednesday so stay tuned!

I'm so happy because I finally cleaned my room and it's not a total disaster. It just feels good when you work and get it done rather than putting off and off (which I do all the time). I finished my first week of school which was super hard, but I got it done.
Please don't think I'm bragging. I just want to encourage you to do what I did. DO that chore you hate. DO that thing that needs to be done. DON"T procrastinate like I did.

Back to School on a Budget
Ways to Save
1. Play with accessories. Try stacking tons of jewelry on a once. It's daring, but super cute.
2. Change up your hair. Lotsa girls find a style they love and stick to it. Changing up your hairstyle can make a difference on how your tops look.
3. Invest in some belts and scarves. They really jazz up boring tees and jeans.
4. Don't be afraid of thrift stores. Once I got a shirt at Goodwill with the tag still on it from the original store! Plato's Closet is awesome, too.
5. Clip coupons. Some stores have awesome sales and great coupons.
What To Splurge On
1. A coat that you LOVE. Try to get on sale, but still cute and good quality because your going to wear it several times a week.
Whereas, if you buy an ugly coat, even if it's super cheap, you're going to be stuck wearing it a lot. These are cute and cheap:
one, both on sale at amazon.com.
2. One awesome accessory. I bought a cute necklace for $23 dollars at a boutique and I wear it almost everyday.
That was hard! I'll try to keep it up, though

I've been trying to make the most out of my last few days of school as I start on Monday. I'm going shopping with my grandma tomorrow. I'll post some of my finds later. I've been sleeping in. I love sleeping. ;)
I'm trying to do more sports.I joined a soccer team. I love soccer and I can't wait for our first game. I'm trying out skateboarding for the first time. I like it but it's HARD. XD
I've been trying to be more artistic. I made a heart necklace today. I'm wearing it now.
Starting this month I'll be posting a weekly post like this called Me Monday. Tricia and Kayleigh- it would be cool if you did one for yourselves, too.

1. "Do you ever get to meet any other kids?"
My first instinct is to snap back " What's a kid?" because I'm sick and tired of being asked this. Since that would be really rude, I instead say: " Yes, I have lots of friends and I get together with other homeschoolers....." This one you really need to cater to your situation.
2. " Do you actually learn anything?"
This is my personal favorite. It's so weird what some people think about homeschoolers. What I said to that was," Yes, I do a lot of work. I went to public school for a few years, but ever since I stared homeschooling , I feel like I've learned a lot more".
Don't you just love when you first tell people you're homeschooled? How their expression changes from a real smile to a forced one? It takes all my strength not to burst out laughing.
A similar article to this coming soon.

My grandma was taking her dog to the vet's office. She was waiting to be called to bring the dog to the exam room. Finally they
called her up." Fido's(name changed) mom , please bring Fido back"
I recently saw a bumper sticker that read" I heart my Granddogs" Um, I don't think her daughter gave birth to a dog. That would be hard to believe.
This is just plain unfair to people. Like I said in Part 1, tons of people think it's perfectly fine to kill an unborn human, but if you so much as threaten to injure unborn or baby puppies you'd be portrayed as a monster.
Well, there it is. Comments, anyone???

I apologize for links instead of pics, but I'm not sure how to legally add pictures from websites, so a little help from an experienced blogger would be very nice. If the links don't work copy and paste them into the top bar where you type in websites. Anywhoo, back to the post.
This dress is really cute. i love the floral print. But, it's a little low cut.
Try putting the sweater in this post on it:
