Originally posted on Ordinary Adventures:
Honestly, my favorite gifts are always in my stocking. I never really received or was even a huge fan of bigger gifts. Getting a whole goodie bag of my favorite little stuff is the best way to my heart. I’ve also come to find, that for most people, this is the hardest part of Christmas shopping! So if you want?some cute but inexpensive gift ideas, or need to stuff that stocking, here’s some items she’s sure to love! *hint * Drew * hint* Sticky Notes?- Second to stocking stuffers, my favorite thing to get is little notes. What makes a little note even better? It being written on cute stationary! I love these innovative, fun stickies that have been out and popular for a while now. There’s so many cute sayings and fun messages, there’s sure to be one you will want to leave around. ? Fuzzy socks?- Is it really Christmas?if you don’t get at least one pair of socks? But ditch the boring Hanes and get some warm,…

It’s that time of year. Your Christmas tree is probably up, most of the Thanksgiving leftovers have been eaten through, and possibly, there’s a little bit of snow on the ground. For me, two of those things are true,?still no snow days for me yet! But even if none of those things are true, you cannot go wrong with chili. If I thought my last time in the kitchen was bad, then this time is in a category all it’s own. I have to admit, getting the hang of cooking is much harder than it looks! Getting all the right ingredients, preparing the food successfully, everything running smoothly, at the same/correct time, and then coming out deliciously? Much harder said then done.

I keep feeling like Ordinary Adventures has been one big stutter for the past few weeks. I keep hesitating with my ideas, my blog posts aren’t as crisp, I skipped a day, and a lot of it has been me sharing some personal struggles. I’ve felt like there is a scratch on the turn table and I keep rewinding to my previous step. I know?I’m still ahead of the game in some areas, but that’s only because of how far I’ve pushed myself. And I’ve loved every minute, so I don’t want to stop now!?Although, I’m not going to be too hard on myself, my life has taken a complete 160 since summer ended, but I long to keep moving forward with my blogging journey. My life has become a whirlwind, I have a whole new schedule, I keep dreaming of lofty goals, but nothing is coming out of my keyboard. I’m tired, honestly. I’ve changed my sleep schedule, my work hours have changed, I’m more exhausted then ever before,…

That you love the peanut butter cookies from subway (warmed up for 20 seconds)? That you love bacon and cheese on your burgers and that you don’t like the fake tres leches cake that they sell at the bakeries.? Your love of pizza is like the same as mine and I love our restaurant “research” to find the best pizza places. The sleeping me knew that the awake me knew you.? And she hurt.? She hurt so bad that you weren’t there.? Somethin g was missing.? It was you.? She was sad and she moped around with the old version of herself. The version she hated. The version that nobody liked.? She was the version of herself that she hated and that she worked so hard to get rid of.…
