Thank y’all for all the love and support after my post from early this morning. I appreciate it GREATLY! 😍😍😍
I am doing well with swollen eyes but a new passion for God!!!
Anyway, I was trying to post this yesterday but I got carried away with other things. 🙄
So, we don’t celebrate Christmas as y’all know, but we celebrate Hanukkah which occurs around the same time as Christmas, but IT’S NOT A REPLACEMENT for CHRISTMAS!!!
My great-grandfather is my pen pal and he’s very dear to me. He sent money to my parents this year to make memories with us. . . He’s SUPER sweet!
So, the day before yesterday, we had a White Elephant gift exchange with a TWIST!
So, my mom bought all the gifts and had dares written out. Before we could pick out a wrapped gift, we had to complete a dare. . .
Ummm. . . Some of them were cruel. 😂
I got two dares that I have pictures from. The first, I had to dress up in toilet paper and take a selfie. And, the second, I had to stick FLAMING HIT CHEETOS IN MY NOSE!!!
The cheetos BURNEDDDDD so BADDDD! But, it was worth it!
We had a fun time. . .
But, I did discover yesterday that Walmart didn’t pierce my ears evenly!!!
Look. . .
Okay, so in the right photo, you can see the decoration that connects the petals together. . . BUTTTT in the left photo, that little connecting piece is covered up by my EARRRR! Which means that either the earring is made wrong or my ear is defective!!!
I’m pretty sure it’s my ear!
So I returned those earrings and got some silver dragonfly earrings instead!
Anyway, the gifts weren’t bad like White Elephant gift exchanges are known to be. 😁
Everything I randomly chose was actually something I enjoyed or needed!
1. Lights to hang in my room!!!
2. A mini water fountain that Alyssa and I DREAMED of getting as kids!
3. My FAVORITE chocolate?!?!
4. TWO different sketch books made from canvas!!!
5. MOVIES because I always want new movies!!!
6. Purple earrings!
7. PURPLE FREAKING EYELINER! Yes, I’m going to wear it to church!!!
So, yeah. I thought I would describe what each picture was. . .
So, that was the booty that I claimed! My sisters ended up with a bunch of candy and makeup and hats and such, but I’m SOOO HAPPY with what I got!!!
I also just wanted to say that I FINALLY released my new novel written from the slave girl’s perspective (I’ve mentioned her and asked advice on its sequel)!
Again, thank you for all the comments and love after my “panic attack.” I appreciate it!
Stay tuned for my next post. . .
