Organizing My Medicine Cabinet

I don’t really keep any medicine in the cabinet above the sink, but that’s what it’s called, so that’s what I’m going to call it. A couple days ago I did a little clean out seeing as there was some old nail polish and perfume and what not that needed to get thrown out. Also I was adding some make up stuff, so things needed to be reorganized.

This is the top shelf. As you can see I actually do have tums, but this is where all the makeup is kept (there is a bottle of foundation there, not sure why it’s not pictured). I obviously also don’t have a lot of makeup as I just have the basics: foundation, lipstick, eyeliner, and mascara.

The next shelf has my nail polishes, chap stick that I use twice a day, and some hair stuff. Well for hair stuff only an eeveelution clip on bow and a hair tie.

And finally on the last shelf I have my makeup wipes, moisturizer, antiperspirant, and nail polish remover.

I’m sorry if this post wasn’t very interesting, but I’ve been working basically every day of the week except for Sundays, so there really hasn’t been a lot of interesting things going on. If anything fun does happen, I will of course try to make a blog post about it.

Vlogmas for Blogging?

I am doing Vlogmas on my channel once again this year and I got to thinking that maybe I should try to do something like that for this blog. Really what it would probably end up being is me picking something specific from the day that maybe even ended in the vlog and writing about it for my blog instead.

In theory it seems like the perfect way to breathe life back into my blog, but at the same time I don’t want to make a promise I can’t keep such as a writing a blog post every day because that just isn’t something that is feesable.

It’s definitely easier to make a vlog everyday cause it’s a lot easier to just film some stuff you’ve done where as at least with my posts, I prefer to include pictures and I may not always do something that’s worthy of photos.

Basically what I’m saying is that I’m going to do a kind of blogmas, but without the guarantee of  a blog post every day. Of course I am definitely going to try to write a post as often as I can.

An actual post will be here super soon (maybe even tomorrow, who knows)!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I figured I would take the time to write a blog post about what I am thankful on this day where we are supposed to truly appreciate what we have in life.

First, I am thankful for all my fur babies (who are not all pictured here). Anyone who has pets know that while sometimes they may drive you crazy and you feel like you’re an idiot for having them they really bring joy to your life. I know a lot of people say pets are just dumb animals and they really shouldn’t be considered a part of the family, but they to me my fur babies are a huge part of my family and I love them all so much and couldn’t imagine life without them.

Next I am thankful that while we don’t own this house we are still able to live in a house with such a beautiful backyard and that we have food on the table as there are people who don’t have these luxuries.

And finally I am most grateful for my husband, Aaron. Of course we’ve had our fights and it hasn’t always been sunshine and roses, but that doesn’t mean I regret any of it. Having him in my life has been one of the best things that has ever happened to me and I wouldn’t trade a single minute of my time spent with or time I will spend with him for anything.

Let me know what you are thankful for and I hope everyone has a happy and safe Thanksgiving or day if you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving!

 

Tatl and Tael Turned a Year Old!!

Yesterday (November 19th) was my pet rats’ first birthday! While we haven’t had them their whole lives we got them about a month after they were born, so it’s crazy to believe that we’ve already had them for almost a year and they’re already a year old.

15284181_10211407677214687_4829929396296066438_n

They are actually small fancy rats and when we first got them they definitely lived up to the title.

16105635_10211624395472508_3120287168791477394_n

They’ve grown fairly big at least in my opinion and it’s interesting to see how easy it is to tell them apart now. When we first got them they looked like almost identical twins with the only differences being slight variations in their spots. Now Tatl is definitely fatter than his little brother and while his spots turned a super dark brown, Tael’s became more of a beautiful reddish brown color.

I love my ratty boys and I’m looking forward to spending another year with them!

New House Tour

As stated in my last post we moved to Kansas and we were able to finally rent an actual house! This is the first house Aaron and I have lived in together and we’re super excited about it.

This is our quite spacious living room from both sides. As you can see it’s a kind of open concept, but what’s most important is we have plenty of room to display all of our nerdy stuff.

Please excuse our messy kitchen table. It’s nice to have an actual dining room like this as it’s perfect for Aaron to be able to play Pathfinder without him having to take over the living room or anything.

I love our kitchen as this is the biggest kitchen we’ve ever had. All four dogs can be in here and I am still able to walk around freely and get stuff done. It also has plenty of counter space for me to work with even if the cats do still get in the way.

Our bedroom is also pretty nice but a little smaller than the bedroom from our first apartment in Germany, but that’s perfectly fine by me as it’s still a decent sized room.

21105476_10155120101093440_528560545594458782_n

And finally here is our nice big backyard. Obviously it does not currently look like this as these are pictures from late August when we first moved in. It’s a nice house and while it won’t be our forever home as it is a rental it’s a place that will do just fine for a years if end up staying in this house for that long.

Finally Back with Lots of Updates!!

I’m sorry that I was gone for so long, but life got super crazy and I just didn’t really have the chance to write a blog post and to be fully honest I didn’t really have the motivation to do it either. But I am ready now to start writing on my blog again, so let me catch you up on everything!!

We went to Disneyworld for the first time at the end of August and it was an absolute blast! A couple of of our friends also came with us and that just made it even more awesome and I can’t wait to go back (honestly wish I was there now).

21151308_10155120106493440_4813273809835924262_n

Right after out trip to Disneyworld we moved to Kansas which is something we had been discussing all Summer and so far we aren’t really regretting it. We actually have a three bed two bath house with a nice big back yard and everyone is loving it.

Another crazy thing we did is that we adopted three new dogs (the one not pictured is a Pit Bull/Mastiff mix) and a kitten (she is just a tortie). With the fact that we finally have a fenced in yard and a house we were able to give these fur babies a home and don’t worry we’re not adopting anymore pets.

That is a basic summary of what has been going on in my life. I’m going to start writing on here more regularly again and I look forward to that as writing a blog really is a lot of fun.

My Summer so Far

We’re almost halfway through summer already and I decided it was the perfect time to catch up on what’s been going on in my life.

18740126_10212923448788029_2710044842175732445_n

First off I got surgery done on my other foot for those who don’t know. Both of my little toes grew pointing inward, so I had tailor’s bunions and the outside of my feet always hurt at least a little, so that needed to be fixed.

19420800_10213173786606318_2423561783998501508_n

I also decided since it was summer and Aaron said he liked my hair short better I decided to go ahead and get it cut. It’s so much easier to take care of now and I do like it short. I just couldn’t decide for the longest time whether I wanted short hair or long hair.

10426805_10203637704490748_2646097815517947282_n

Something really exciting is that Aaron and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary on June 28th. I don’t have any pictures from the day we celebrated simply because we were both just enjoying spending the day together and didn’t pull out our phones or anything like that.

And finally 4th of July was a blast. These pictures of fireworks are actually from one of our friend’s mom seeing as my phone was at 2% when the fireworks started. We went to a bbq at our friend’s house and later that day we got to a perfect spot to watch the fireworks. Because we got there so early we killed some time throwing a football and frisbee around and then we went back to our friend’s house to play with sparklers and set off a couple of smaller fireworks.

Summer 2017 so far has been a blast and I hope you’re all having a great summer too!!
