What’s in My Schoolbag

Hello cupcakes. I’ve always been fascinated by what’s in my bag videos. It’s fun to see what other people carry, and if any of them have some of the dame things I do. So I decided to do a what’s in my schoolbag video since it is back to school times. I hope everyone enjoys it, and if you would like to see a regular what’s in my bag video let me know and I’ll be happy to do so. As always feedback and suggestions are welcome.

5 Fandom Friday: Things I Love About Fall 

  
It’s been awhile since I’ve done a 5 Fandom Friday so I’m excited to join back in. As most people know Summer is my jam, so it’s hard for me to let go and embrace fall. However once I come to terms with it I do enjoy it. 
  
1. Football

As far back as I can remember I loved football, more importantly the Dallas Cowboys. My love of it came from spending hours on Sundays watching it with my stepfather. As a kid I would try to mimick the hand gestures the referees made when making calls, as an adult I still do the same thing. My love for the Cowboys however is my own since my stepfather is not a fan. I couldn’t tell you what made me pick them as a kid since I had no clue about stats and so, but I’ve loved them since. If you follow me on Twitter you may have already seen some of my football tweets, if not be prepared because they’re coming. 

    
2. New York Comic Con

I have been attending NYCC with my hubby and kids the past four years and we love it. This year however tickets were especially hard to get (if any of you here tried I’m sure you know the struggle was real). We still need one more ticket for my hubby and are hoping to get lucky.  We won’t be taking Squish yet because I just feel like he’s too small, but I can’t wait until we can. Most years one of my kids makes his own cosplay and this year is no different. If you’re attending and see me there feel free to say hi! 

  
 
3. The Walking Dead

I’ve been a fan since the first episode and miss this show so much while it’s off. I mark my calendar and even set a countdown. As much as I love The Walking Dead I have yet to go to a panel and honestly I may never because the line and wait for it is insane. 
  
4. The colors

A picture is worth a thousand words and I guess I really don’t have to get into it much. The turning of leaves is just beautiful. 
  
5. Halloween 

I love desssing up, the hayrides, carving pumpkins, and all the horror movies. Oh and the candy of course. 

While nothing beats summer, fall comes close. What are some of your fall favorites?

5 Fandom Friday: The Halloween Candy I Always Look Forward to When Trick-or-Treating

Hello lovelies. I’m back, finally!! I’ve had so many difficulties with my internet, phone and laptop these past two weeks. Technology was not my friend. But here I am and ready to participate in 5 Fandom Friday, better late than never right?

1. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Oh these are my all time favorite candy period. Since the first time I had one I was hooked. Such peanut butter goodness…yum!

2. Cherry Jolly Ranchers

When it comes to hard candy these win hands down. While the other flavors are ok I don’t bother with any of them. I only want cherry ones.

3. Haribo Gummy Bears

I love these squishy candies so much. I could and have eaten a whole bag by myself. When I was pregnant with baby #3 these were one of my cravings, people would surprise me with bags of these.

4. Strawberry Laffy Taffy

Ooey gooey yumminess, and the jokes are cute.

5. Candy Corn

Halloween just isn’t Halloween without some good ole candy corn. I know they now come in different flavors and colors but just give me some of the traditional ones and I’m a happy gal.

Here you have it, my 5 favorite Halloween candy, although I could eat this candy anytime time. I hope everyone had a fun Halloween.

What’s your favorite Halloween candy??

Hello September

IMG_7237.PNG

So here we are again September. Summer has come and gone, and now we prepare for autumn and all it’s festivities. Bust out the pumpkin spiced everything, big comfy sweaters, and football jerseys. While I myself am a lover of the warmer clients I do have my favorite fall rituals I partake in. Apple picking, the beginning of football season, and Halloween are just of the few things that put a smile on my face. So while I’m sad to see summer end, I embrace all the wonders of the new season.

To help welcome September I’m going to list a few goals for the month.

1. Get outdoors as much as possible.
2. Run outdoors more as oppose to the treadmill. Running the paths and taking in the changing of the leaves is a perfect way to welcome September.
3. Try different workout routines.
4. Smile! On those days when the cold creeps in and you dread getting out of bed, just smile.
5. Set a blogging schedule and stuck to it.
6. Network/mingle more, get to know and make connections with people.

How do you welcome fall? What are you looking forward to? Do you have goals for September? Tell me all about them.
