Christmas Tag

IMG_3218

After making this Christmas tree out of a tomato cage I am fully in the spirt of the season, so this tag only seemed appropriate.

Thank’s to the beautiful Zaynah for tagging me (go check her out here y’all!)

What’s your favourite Christmas food? My mom’s side of the family makes flavored rock candy and fudge so I’m a huge fan of that, but I also adore the white chocolate fudge cover oreos that they bring out this time every year.

What is your favourite Christmas movie? My family has a tradition of watching “A Christmas Story” every year after opening presents. Scrooged with Bill Murray is fantastic as well.

What advent calendar do you have? I don’t have one 😦 but I have heard The Body Shop one is awesome.

What’s your favourite snow related activity? Spectating. I like to sit by the fire and watch everyone else freeze their butts off sledding while I sip coffee. I use to sled, but I abhor being cold (not to mention cold and wet)

What’s your favourite Christmas candle scent?. Marshmallows Fireside by Bath and Body Work for sure! Go sniff it if you haven’t!

What is your favourite Christmas tree ornament? Any kind of ornate star topper.

If you could go anywhere for Christmas where would it be? Some where warm. Hawaii? Fiji?

Would you put an inflatable Santa outside your house? Hell yes. I love cheesy shit like that.

Do you like ice-skating? More than anything. Don’t ask me why but this is the only “cold weather” sport I enjoy. I guess I end up getting so hot while I’m skating that I don’t notice I’m on ice.

Do you own a cool Christmas jumper? I don’t think I ever have. But I do own a christmas themed long john pajama set.

Favourite Christmas song? Deck the Halls

What is your favourite Christmas animal? There are such things as Christmas animals? I’ll go  with reindeer since that’s all I can think of that fits the bill.

What do you look forward to most about Christmas? My family being together and happy. Good moods all around. And I get to pig out almost as much as Thanksgiving during Christmas dinner.

What is your favourite day? Christmas Day, Christmas Eve, or Boxing Day? Christmas Day.

What is your favourite winter/Christmas accessory to wear? Ummm Santa Hat. I’m draw to them. Or reindeer antlers.

Now I need to excuse myself to go finish my Christmas shopping before it actually becomes Christmas 🙂

Happy Holidays!

Anxiety. You’re Not Alone!

You are not alone.

“That’s such an irrational thing to worry about.”  “Everything is fine, stop freaking out.” or “You have to know that is not going to happen.”

If you struggle with anxiety and have tried to vent to friends or relatives I’m sure you’ve heard these responses before.

I get that the stuff I worry about makes no sense, or isn’t anything I can control, or is something I will never know for sure. My rational brain completely understands that. But, unfortunately my the part of my brain that gives my awesome anxiety doesn’t give a shit what my rational brain thinks or knows. It says “But what if it’s not an irrational fear?” But what if everything isn’t fine?” “But what if it does happen?!”

I have struggled with anxiety on and off since I was young, and I want you to know you aren’t alone! Millions of other people feel the same way, and think the same thoughts. Even if others don’t understand why you think the way you do, or even poke fun at you for it, I get it. I and tons of others know what you go through at night when you can’t sleep. What you think when you have to meet new people, or go somewhere by yourself.

Keep your head high and know that you are not alone. And look at these cool things I found on the internet.
