On the sixth day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Six geese a laying, five gold rings
Four calling birds, three French hens

Let it Snow – Scrabble Ornament

Scrabble Tile Ornament: Let It Snow

This one is so cute! First, you have to glue ‘let’ together, for the ‘L’ you’ll only glue it on the right side, but for the ‘E’ you’ll want to glue it on both sides, but not for the ‘T’, you’ll only glue the ‘T’ on the left side. You’ll do the same for the ‘snow’ part, but the ‘N’ and the ‘O’ have to be glued on both sides. and the you can glue ‘IT’ together, but but glue on the bottom and the top. Then you can glue it all together!

Glitter Pinecone Ornament โœจ

22 Pine Cone Crafts for Christmas | Pine cone christmas decorations,  Christmas ornament crafts, Homemade christmas decorations

This one is so pretty! It definitely brings a tree to life and gives it a raw Christmas look! All you need to make this one is paint, glitter, and string. First you’re going to lightly paint the ends of the scales, but make sure it doesn’t dry before you add the glitter. Then you can tie a string around the top and you’ve got yourself a Christmas Ornament!

the fifth day of christmas

Hey Everyone! It’s the third day of Blogmas and I have some super cute and creative Christmas cookie decorating ideas!

I tried to pick some cookies that you could eye and figure out how to do it, but I could attempt to explain them. ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿช

Let’s take a look!

A Line from Linda: Christmas Cookie Collection

Melted Snowman Cookie

This kind of looks like a melted marshmallow, and an orange sprinkle as the nose, and a Reese’s as the hat. And the eyes look like dots of melted chocolate… I don’t think this would taste good but it sure does look cute!

snowglobes โ€ฆ | Cookies recipes christmas, Christmas sugar cookies, Christmas  treats

Snowglobe Cookie

Okay, now I would hate to eat these because they are so pretty! I think they had to modify the shape a little bit for the stand. The stand kind of looks like fondant, but it should be easy just to use frosting. And as for the ornaments and snow, it’s like those little pearly sprinkles, which is super cute. I’d say 70% of this cookie is fondant though, which isn’t too great…

how the grinch stole christmas cookies

Grinch Cookie

High in food coloring I presume?

Probably, but these still remind me of the Grinch! The hearts look like sprinkles, but I’d do icing hearts, just to make it more enjoyable.

Christmas Lights Royal Icing Sugar Cookies

Christmas Light Cookies

Ahhh these are so cute! I’m guessing all you have to do is add a base layer of white and freeze it, then add droopy lines and colorful dots? It looks decently easy though, which is a plus!

Santa Cookies | Cook. Craft. Love.

Santa’s Belt Cookies

I love how simple these are! Just three colors, one box, one line, and red for his coat.

So simple! I love it! I’d totally do these!

A Tribute to A Charlie Brown Christmas...in cookies. - Bake at 350ยฐ

Charlie Brown Cookies

I love these so much! A Charlie Brown Christmas is one of my favorite Christmas movies! These look a bit more difficult than the rest, so I’ll just give you the link to the site!

A TRIBUTE TO A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS…IN COOKIES.

That’s it for todays post! I hope you found it helpful, and gave you some ideas for your upcoming cookie decorating session! lol!

My favorite was probably the Grinch one! Which was your favorite?

miscellaneous

Electric Toothbrush

Amazon.com: AquaSonic Vibe Series Ultra Whitening Pink Electric Toothbrush  - 8 Dupont Brush Heads & Travel Case Included - Sonic 40,000 VPM Motor &  Wireless Charging - 4 Modes w Smart Timer -
it doesn’t really matter what kind, just as long as it’s electric lol. I just thought this one was pretty.

As you all know I recently got braces, so an electric toothbrush would be awesome to help clean my teeth better.

Vanity Mirror

Amazon.com : Wondruz Makeup Mirror Vanity Mirror with Lights, 1x 2X 3X  Magnification, Touch Screen Switch, Dual Power Supply, Portable Trifold  Makeup Mirror Cosmetic Lighted Up Mirror : Beauty

I really like how sleek and clean these mirrors look! And with the lights and the modern look to it ties it all together so well! ๐Ÿ˜…

I also love how it’s semi portable!

FULL HOUSE – COMPLETE COLLECTION

Full House ~ Complete Series ~ Season 1-8 (1 2 3 4 5 6 7 & 8) ~ NEW DVD SET  | Full house, Full house dvd, Full house seasons

Way back in August I watched Season One of Full House and I loved it! Ever since then I ‘ve watched 2-4 on Hulu, but since some complications with that it’s been hard to watch it, so having the complete DVD collection would be pretty Rad.

Haha see what I did there?

MAKEUP

I love playing with Makeup. Makeup is so fun to do, but I sometimes have to steal my sisters stuff. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ™Š I have most of my own stuff, but it’d still be nice to have some extra stuff!

Also isn’t that picture so fun to look at? But at the same time kind of daunting… ๐Ÿ˜…

Brio Magazine

Brio Magazine - Focus on the Family

I found out about this Magazine on Kaelyn’s blog, Kaelyn’s life. And ever since then I’ve wanted this Magazine! I was previously subscribed to the American Girl Magazine, but since I’ve grown out of it and it discontinued, I was looking for more magazines to read! And when I came across this one, I thought, ‘This is perfect!”. Because its Faith based, and for teen girls!

Aromatherapy from Bath and Body Works

COD Authentic Bath And Body Works Aromatherapy Body Wash 295ml | Shopee  Philippines

I love Aromatherapy! It’s smells so good! My favorite was the Revive, but they discontinued that one… I also like it because of the way the bottles look! They look so nice and like glass, but I think they’re actually plastic!

From Etsy

On the second day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
2 Turtle Doves
and a Partridge in a Pear Tree

the second day of Christmas

Hey my snowy followers! For todays Day of Christmas, I will be rating Emmie’s playlist as a collab! I reached out to her a couple weeks ago because I realized we were both doing Twelve Days of Blogmas, so I thought it would be fun to do a collab! So after about 13 emails we finally decided to do a playlist swap thingy.

I hope you enjoy, and be sure to check out all these great songs!

โ„


  1. Like It’s Christmas – Jonas Brothers Okay, 9/10, this song really hyped me up for Christmas! Itโ€™s also really simple, but also upbeat like Mariah Carrey. I really like this one! The only reason why I took off one point is because it wasnโ€™t really what I was used to, because Iโ€™m a sucker for old fashioned music, Lol!ย 
  2. Love You More At Christmastime – Kelly Rowland. Um Iโ€™m only 42 seconds in and this is great! 8/10, mostly because the beginning didnโ€™t feel very Christmasy. But she has a very angelic voice, and itโ€™s so smooth. I like the motown feel of it, mostly because I love motown music! But it kind of gets repetitive, and then about at 2:32 during the song the โ€˜heyโ€™s kind of distracted it from christmas soโ€ฆ Still love it though!
  3. Make It To Christmas – Alessia Cara –ย  First impression, 6/10โ€ฆ Mostly because it felt a lot more like pop music, and not the classic, but maybe people like pop christmas music, because again, sucker for the classics. I like the upbeat and the drums, but yeah, still 6/10. But she does have a beautiful voice!
  4. Hallelujah – Pentatonix – 10/10! This song is so beautiful! Hallelujah! A king is born!
  5. Baby, It’s Cold Outside (feat. Kelly Clarkson) – John LegendA very classic song with a modern twist! I love the jazz feel of it, and already I love the original song, and this just makes it a whole lot better! 9/10
  6. The First Christmas – Riley Clemmons – Awee very beautiful! I love it! The theme, the lyrics, the tempo! 9/10!ย 
  7. Little Drummer Boy – for KING & COUNTRY– If I didnโ€™t know that FK&C sung it, I wouldโ€™ve known right away it was them. I feel like it was good, but I feel like they changed it a little to much, but it was still a good song. The lyric video made since, but again, it didnโ€™t to me. Iโ€™d have to look into it for now, but still, I really like the original.ย  7/10
  8. It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year – Amy Grant Such a pretty voice! I love this version! 10/10!ย ย 
  9. Silver Bells – Straight No ChaserOkay this one was cool! Iโ€™m kind of getting used to this style of Christmas Music, but I really do like this one! I like the little music video. It was really funny! 9/10!
  10. 25th – Tori KellyEhhh this one might be my least favorite. I really got pop music vibes and not Christmas-y vibes like I got from all the others. 5/10. The five is for the sick tune lol xD
  11. All I Want For Christmas Is You – Mariah CareyAhhh this one is on my list too! I love this song so much but the rest of my family doesnโ€™t so whenever I sing it I ignore everyone xD 10/10
  12. Christmas Tree Farm – Taylor SwiftI liked the beginning, but then it kind of went downhill. I donโ€™t really listen to Taylor Swift, so it was different, but I โ€˜d give this one 7/10…I also REALLY like the music video…
  13. River – Sarah McLachlanItโ€™s like a very country Christmas song. Reminds me of Dolly Parton. I didnโ€™t really understand it though, which kind of bothered me, but overall it was enjoyable to listen to. 7/10
  14. A Grown-Up Christmas List – Pentatonix I love Pentatonix, but this was kind of weak, pretty voices, nice tempo, but still, kind of meh. 7/10 because itโ€™s Pentatonix, come on. xD
  15. Winter Snow – Chris Tomlin & Audrey Assad -Such a beautiful song! Audrey has a beautiful voice! Iโ€™ll totally listen again!! 10/10

CHRISTMAS EVE SHORT STORY CONTEST

Directions:

  • This is a Christmas Eve Short Story Contest, in which anyone who loves to write can submit a Christmas Eve Short Story by the 23rd, 11:59 PM will have a chance to win a guest post, and a shoutout on my sidebar for the whole year. Sounds pretty awesome, right?
  • All stories must have a Christmas Eve/Christmas in general theme. It must mention the word Christmas at least once or twice.
  • All stories must be 200-900 words long, 950 max. Please do not attempt to count the words as this would be very tiring. You can use wordcounter.net which is easier and less time consuming.
  • Please get your stories in on time, as I would have to write out the post with less than 3 hours to do so, and I strive for well-worded posts, I need all the time as possible.
  • Stories will be judged on creativity, plot, and grammar. I will be rating them out of ten, and the one with the closest to perfect score will be the winner. For example, if I rated a writer’s submission a 8/10 on creativity, 9/10 for plot, and 9/10 for grammar, they would most likely be the winner, whereas if someone got all 9/10s for creativity and plot, but a 6/10 for grammar, it could most likely ruin their chances at winning.
  • You may submit your story through google docs, which is the easiest to access. But if you must you can write it out VIA email, and send it to me that way.

Rules:

  • Have fun and be original!
  • Please do not cuss in your stories as it is unnecessary and unpleasant for me to read.
  • Submitting your story relatively late could ruin your chances at winning.
  • Don’t enter unless you are sure you can compete with wiggle room for you enjoy the holidays.
  • This is a christmas themed story competition, all stories must have a christmas theme and mention christmas at least once or twice.
  • Failure to adhere to these rules could as well ruin your chances at winning.

You can enter by clicking this link ๐Ÿ˜€

Thank you so much for entering, and if you have any questions be sure to ask me in the comments and I’ll get back to you right away!

That’s about it for this first day, but don’t worry, we still have eleven days to go! So stay tuned!

(I’m not sure about how I feel about this signoff…)

Heleaux Y’all!

Welcome back to Middle Mary!

This post is just an announcement, so I probably won’t be #schooling y’all on random things…

If I made a whole post about announcements, I guess you guys would pay better attention, because it’s why you clicked on the post. Maybe it’s just a bunch of questions, or updating you on random things.

As you can see in the title above, (โ˜) you can see that I have mentioned a thing called blogmas! Which I know a lot of bloggers are doing right now, so it probably isn’t ‘fresh’ like my own ideas here, but how many blogging Christmas related fun-stuffs to do? ๐Ÿ˜‚ -I just can’t even with that sentence…

Anyway, I’ll be talking about that at the end of the post, so keep scrolling for some more announcements and –stuff-.



I finally got a Goodreads account!

I think I made one and forgot about it, but I guess that’s just how it goes with me…

But so far I have a bunch of books on my TBR which is super awesome, because I always see books and then I’m like, ‘Now what was that book called again?’ and I never remember!

And I can keep track of all the books I’ve read! Maybe not all of the ‘Who was’ books because I feel like I read two every month. Yesterday I think I read Who Was Henry Ford…

I really miss blogging about books, but since complications with my camera service provider’s phone isn’t working right now, I have no way to upload pics…

๐Ÿ˜ฆ

loving ETSY

I don’t have an etsy shop, but I could spend hours adding random things to my favorites list! โค If you wanna follow my account and see all of my favorites, here’s the link!

If you have an account I would love to see all of your favorites as well because, like, I need to find more things-that-I-will-probably-never-get-but-still-admire! ๐Ÿ˜‚

The 200 Follower Thing

SO.

I might postpone the celebration until January, since December is packed, because of…

Blogmas!

Whoop whoop!

Okay I’ll stop. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I’m going to be doing 12 days of blogmas! Which basically is just twelve days stuffed with holiday cheer and Christmas themed posts! And honestly I still have three more days to plan. ๐Ÿ˜ณ Maybe four.

But I know it will all be worth it!

Anyway, that’s should be it, even though I’ll probably miss something and update this post, but who knows, maybe it’s flawless… โœจ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Byyeeeeeee

Heleaux Y’all!

As we all know, the holidays can be a stressful time for everyone. We all have the fantasy in which the holidays go smoothly and easily, without the stress of buying presents, wrapping presents, writing blog posts, baking all the sugar cookies you can while frantically searching for wrapping paper. Oh, and don’t forget finishing off all the decorating. Maybe you’re even cleaning up the house for guests that only come once a year. (Raises hand)

So after all that, you’re pretty worn out.

Basically, this is a guide on how to recharge your batteries to help stay festive all throughout the holidays!

If it gets cold in your area…

RELAX BY THE FIRE๐Ÿ”ฅ

Seriously, who wouldn’t love just to sit by the fire and read a nice book, perhaps a christmas themed book?

Make Hot Chocolate and…

Watch a Christmas Movie ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿป

Preharbly hallmark, because you can’t go a whole holiday season without watching Amelia fall in love in a festive small town! Honestly though, the ones with Candace Cameron Bure are a lot better. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Take a deep breath and…

STRETCH ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ

There are lots of good relaxing stretches out there. Or you could do some really stretchy stretches, like lunges, back bends, and splits.

Tip: Make sure to breathe in and out steadily, and focus on your breathing. It definitely helps!

Grab a candle and some bubbles and…

Take a bath๐Ÿ›

This is a little cliche, and some people don’t like sitting in water with their own filth, but you could shower of first if that makes you feel any better.

Bathing has excellent health benefits, like elevate your mood, help you to sleep better, and relieve muscle pain. And don’t forget the peppermint scented candle.

Get some more exercise and…

GO FOR A WALK๐Ÿšถโ€โ™€๏ธ

No matter where you live, there will always be somewhere to walk. It’ll help you gather your thoughts and think about what you have to do.


And that folks, is the aftermath of procrastination.

But! I think this is a good time to post, even though it is really bad quality…

Anyway, I recently got a Goodreads account! You can go to the actual site, and on the sidebar you’ll see my TBR! I’m still trying to figure it out, but I think I’m getting the hang of it!

ALSO, I read Unlocked! My library gets an E-Book version and I can just go to their online catalog and reserve it for when it comes out! I was first in line! It was okay, but maybe not my favorite, or my least favorite.

So Lizzy gave my a brilliant idea on what I should do to celebrate 200 followers! A contest! I was thinking maybe a short story contest, but what do you guys think? What type of contest should I do? It might take place in february, because I stocked up my posting schedule a little too well, and now I have a bunch of posts planned from today all the way to January 8th… ๐Ÿ˜… So if you want me to do like, a big tag post on the 15th of January, I’ll totally do that, but you just have to make sure to tell me on my Tag page, which is super helpful!

Anyway, thanks for reading and be sure to check in Thanksgiving day, because I have a post scheduled for then and it’s super fun!

Until then!

The Feelings Tag – Thanks Reese!

Helleaux Y’all!

Welcome back to Middle Mary! Since this is the first post of the month, I’ll be doing a tag that I was so excited to be tagged for!

Today I’ll be doing The Feelings Tag! I was nominated by Reese, so give her a big thank you by checking out her blog for me!

Before we get started, I’d just like to say that I have 200 Followers! I can’t thank all of you enough! What to you think I should do to celebrate?

The Feelings Tag

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and give a link to the blog. – Thank you, Reese! (We’ve actually done a collab together, Two Book I Like VS Two Books I Dislike)
  • Answer the 5 feelings given to you. – How about no? ๐Ÿ˜‚ Ofc, that is why I’m doing this tag…
  • Write the reason in 5 to 6 lines of why does that particular book come under that feeling. – This should be the most painful tag for me yet.
  • Nominate between 5-12 other bloggers. – I’ll do 6, plus if you want to do this tag I’ll add your name.
  • Give your nominees 5 feelings too. – This feels like Inside Out meets is in a book club.
  • Notify your nominees once youโ€™ve uploaded your post. – I already do ๐Ÿ™‚

#1 A Book That Made You Laugh

(Does anyone ever look over to their bookshelf and their just like, “Hmmm..” ๐Ÿ˜‚)

I’m going to have to say Schooled by Gordon Korman โ˜ฎ. It’s about a teenager who was homeschooled by his hippie grandma named Rain (I can remember rain but not the main characters name???), and when his grandma gets into an accident, he has to live with strangers and go to a real school.

Basically the whole book I was either ‘๐Ÿคฃ’ or ‘๐Ÿ˜”’. It’s a really good book and I’recommendnd it ages 12 to 16.

#2 A Book That Made You Mad

I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that I was like, “Arg I hate you book! YOU MAKE ME ANGRY.” *throws book across the room*

BUT, I’m going to have to say Tales of a Fourth-Grade Nothing ๐Ÿข, because I hate this one character. The mom!

She is totally oblivious to her sons’ behavior. The kid is literally destroying the store and she’s all like,

“Oh we just have to let him throw his tantrums, he’s just angry. Sweetie can you please calm down?๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜˜”

The woman doesn’t know how to parent. Just saying.

#3 A Book That Lifted Your Spirits

Jacky Ha-Ha. ๐ŸŽญ

A girl who found her love of theater, even though she had a speech impediment, she still overcame it in the end. Love, loss, suspicious people (lol), a daring deed, and a really good role model (I’m so cheesy๐Ÿ™ˆ). I was so happy they had a sequel, which I recently read.

Honestly, if you haven’t read this book, what’s the reason not too?

#4 A Book That Felt Like It Was Written Just For You

Sadly, I haven’t found that book yet.

But, one that came pretty close was Auggie and Me ๐Ÿ’•, because I am so much like Charlotte! I can relate to her so much. She’s like my book alter-ego.

I also love all the different POVs, and a POV from Julian?! I don’t hate him as much since I read it, but I mean, he’s still not all that likeable.

#5 A Book That Was Okay

Slider by Pete Hautman. ๐Ÿ”

I didn’t take away as much as I wanted too, and I felt like the kid just got by on a lucky break. But, it was a good book, and I definitely didn’t hate it. You can read it, and you might take away more, but for now, this book was just okay.

Plus, I really liked the characters. ๐Ÿ˜‚

ALL THE FEELS

– A book that was way too long

– The book in which the movie based on it was better

– A book with the worst characters

– A book in which had the most unexpected plot twist

– A book you used to like, but not anymore

Life Updates:

I didn’t post last Friday because I got braces!

And since then I’ve gotten pretty used to them, and they don’t hurt to bad, but probably because they have to put more appliances in, like separators or something? ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

And today marks the day in which there is only FOUR DAYS until Unlocked Book 8.5! So to all you Keeper Fans out there, I AM SO EXCITED! ๐ŸŽ‰

Again, thank you to Reese for tagging me!

If anybody has any ideas of what I should do to celebrate 200 Followers, leave your ideas below! And then my next post, I’ll make a poll, and then once the votes are in we can start celebrating!

Until then!
