Hope you all had a fabulous turkey day, I know I did! I've literally been eating stuffing, turkey, and pie since then and I'm not ashamed. My mom makes the best stuffing.

This happened just the other day.... Wisconsin finally got their first true snowfall of the season. I was hoping to capture a picture before they plowed the roads and threw sand everywhere, but they plowed at like five in the morning and I wasn't about to get out of my warm bed. I had the night off that night so after class I spent it watching Christmas movies on ABC Family and chilling with my mom. I think I ended up watching almost every single Home Alone ever made and let me tell you, excluding the first to, those movies got worse and worse with each one.

Since then, Wisconsin has lived up to it's reputation of freak weather. We went from 60 degrees to about 20 degrees in two days. I love my state, but it can be a little ridiculous sometimes. Anyone else having this where they live?

Also, last week marked the day for one year of blogging here on KE! I really can't believe that I've been blogging for a whole year. Even though I don't blog as much as I would like to, it has become one of my favorite hobbies. I have met so many great girls already through blogging and have learned so much since I started. I want to thank every one of my followers for following along and supporting me. Thank you to anyone who has been here since the start and thank you to the newbies for stopping by. I love you guys so much!

"My favorite thing about Christmas is the excitement of planning, purchasing, wrapping, and giving that perfect present to family and friends!

Aww, you are so lucky! I wish we already had snow here. I can't wait, but it's still too dry and hot here, damn New Mexico weather :( haha

Anyway, congrats on your one year blog-iversary! :)

P.S. Did you ever dip dye your hair? I just realized you did a post about it awhile back, and I recently dip dyed mine. I love it!
