Haha, I’m pretty much obsessed with Christmas too 😀 Which is one reason why I really love your new bowl and mug! Super cute!

Congrats on the awards, girl! Hope you have fun at the pumpkin farm! Sounds like my kind of place, hehe!

CUTE bowls!! Fun surveys; I love those!!

Hope you had fun pumpkin picking today!!!

I have my PSAT on Wednesday, too! Not stressing about it, though. I’ve already taken the SAT as a 7th-grader and the PSAT once before as an 8th-grader… shouldn’t be that hard to pass ’em again! And I completely agree with you on 3-6 of your list: maturity of sophomores is a rare thing, Christmas is completely divine, I love my home, and sweet potatoes rock regular potatoes’ socks off! lol. 🙂

Nice oats, btw. I’m kinda hesitant to try banana and pumpkin together… I think it would taste funny…?

11 10 2009

Aw thanks for the award! 😀
And I love the bowls, you know how much I am jealous of them, right? 😉

11 10 2009

Congratulations:) Hope you had a great day with your friends!
