How has 2017 been…December

Hi Blog world,

Wow, I can’t believe its the end of the year already. This month has gone by so quick. Looking back at my calendar Its been a busy time. I finished my Christmas shopping early, and I have to say all the people who I bought gifts for enjoyed them.

I even got to spend a day out with my best friend, we went to see the movie called “The Star.” You can read more about that day by clicking this link:  A day out with friends.

I also spent an evening out with my grandpa, went to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants and then we went to see the Christmas lights. I look forward to this tradition each year.

For Christmas, I received: tea, a book, cookies, candy, pajamas and some money. Duke got some treats which he is loving. What did you guys get for Christmas? Tell me in the comments below.

I hope each and every one of you have a happy and safe New Year’s Eve, and I look forward to  hearing from you in 2018!

Thanksgiving 2017

Hi Blog world,

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my followers! I had a wonderful day because I spent the day with a group of friends. We had plans to go to Cracker Barrel, however because there was supposed to be over an hour wait, we ended up eating at Ruby Tuesday.

I had the salad bar, and a cheeseburger. The salad bar was filled with all different kinds of fresh vegetables and toppings. The only thing that I didn’t care for was one of the flat breads that I had picked out. My cheeseburger was simple and delicious. It also came with fries, which is one of my guilty pleasures. All in all it was a great meal; and my bill came out to be $20 and some change.

The day after Thanksgiving I had dinner with my grandparents. As usual we had our famous ham loaf. We had Sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, Jello, and fruit pudding.

I am thankful for my family, my dog, my friends, and of course, my followers.

Blog soon,
