Happy Thanksgiving :)

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hey Ya'll!
      I just wanted to say a happy Thanksgiving! Although I'm out of town and celebrating the Holiday tomorrow, It's still one of my favorite holidays! I watched the Macy's Parade this morning, and tonight, I'm finally going to see Breaking Dawn Part 2! What are you doing on your days off? I wish I could go Black Friday shopping, but ironically, I'm in Canada and they don't have thanksgiving or Black Friday this week.

Holly Jolly Holiday Tag Part 1!

Hey Guys!

As some of you may know, the Holly Jolly Holiday tag is one that went around youtube around this time of year last year, and since thanksgiving is quickly approaching, I thought I would hop on the band wagon! :)
(he didn't get out of his go kart for days)

1. Favorite Christmas Movie?
      My favorite Christmas movie is either Elf, or any of the Santa Clause movies. Or Miracle on 34th street. 
2. Are you on the Naughty list or the Nice list?

     Nice list. Obviously (at least i hope :/)
3. Show us an embarrassing Christmas Card photo! (WE KNOW YOU HAVE ONE OK)

    This one's old, but not super embarrassing. I think I'm only 10 or 11 in this picture. 

4. Have you ever had a White Christmas?

     I live in the midwest, so a White Christmas is not uncommon, but unfortunately  last year we did not have a white christmas :( So I'm really hoping and praying that we have a white christmas, because I think that's one of the best parts of Christmas. 
5. Where do you usually spend your holiday?

    Thanksgiving we spend all over the place. We usually go to my Dad's side of the family one year, and my mom's the nest year. This year we're going to visit my dad's sister up in Canada! For Christmas Eve, we always spend it and my Grandma's on my dad's side. That when we celebrate christmas with them. On christmas day, we have our own christmas at home ( like in the picture at the top of the page.) and then go to one of my aunts houses (or sometimes we host) to have christmas with my moms side of the family. For New Years, we usually stay at home!
6. Play or Sing your favorite Christmas Song!

    It's hard to pick my favorite Christmas song, but I'd probably go with either Happy Xmas (War is Over) or All I want for Christmas is You By Mariah Carrey. (or the Michael Buble Version, or the Justin Bieber Version)
7. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?

   Like I said, we celebrate Christmas with my dad's side of the family on christmas eve, so we open all of those presents then :)
8. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?

    You know Dasher and Dancer adn Prancer and Vixen, Commet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen, But do you recall, the most famous Reindeer of allllllll. Rudolph!!!!
9. What holiday tradition are you looking forward to most this year?

    We have a lot of Holiday Traditions:
-Watching Deck the Halls on Christmas Eve
-Watching A Christmas Story while we wait for my parents to wake up on christmas
-Going to the same mall and McDonald's on Christmas Eve with my dad and brother when we go shopping for my mom's present.
-On New Year's Eve, in the afternoon we take the train to downtown chicago and eat a WildFire and the take the train back home for midnight :)
I don't have a favorite. They're all equal :)
10. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
   Fake. I think we're all allergic or something. Plus, I'd be scared it woud set on fire :/
11. Hands down, what's your all-time favorite holiday food and holiday sweet treat?

    Either Mashed Potatoes on Thanksgiving, Prime Rib on Christmas, or Christmas Cookies :)
12. Be Honest: do you like giving gifts or receiving gifts better?

    Both Equally. Who doesn't love getting presents? But giving presents is soooo fun :) I love picking out the perfect present for everyone :)
13. Show us your tackiest Christmas attire (ex: Ugly Sweater)

      I can't find a pic right now, but I'll keep looking. 
14. What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?
     I'd love to go the the mountains like colorado or Utah during the holiday time, but I'd still want to spend christmas at home :)
15. Does your family have a special holiday recipe you like to help make?

    Kolacky (pronounced co-la-och-key) cookies. They're my grandma's recipie and they're so good. Maybe I'll do a baking post about them. 
I like the raspberry ones the best. 
16. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably? 
    If it's a square or regular sied box, It'll look great, but if it's weird shape, I get really frustrated and it usually looks like a 3 year old wrapped it. 
17. Most memorable Holiday moment?

    I remember one year when I was really little, I got a princess 2 wheeler bike, and my parents let me ride it around the house on christmas morning. I got a new bike a couple of years ago too!
18. What made you realize the truth about Santa?

    I have no idea what you're talking about.
19. Do you make New Years Resolutions? Do you stick to them?
    Yes. And No.
20. What makes the Holidays special for you?

    That awesome feeling you get in your stomach. I get sooooo excited just because it's my favorite time of the year. I love how happy everyone is all the time, and how I get to spend extra time with my family. :)

October Favorites

(sorry I've been MIA. I hate school)

I had to. I'm sorry

Warning, the following favorites may be very random. Don't judge me.

1. Revlon Color stay foundation (combination/ oily)
   This foundation kicks butt. I love this foundation, it really helps keep my skin looking decent throughout the entire day, and covers all of my blemishes with the help of some concealer and powder. I highly recommend it.

2. Mac's "Satin Taupe" eyeshadow.
     This color is awesome for darkening your eyeshadow look a little and I've been reaching for it a ton this month.

3. Water
     I don't know if you've noticed, but water is really freaking awesome. I highly suggest you go get yourself a glass and chug the whole thing, It's quite refreshing actually. I'm planning on doing a blog post all about the benefits of drinking water, so look for that in the next few weeks.

4. Sally Hansen Cinna-Snap nail polish
     This color is so pretty, I talked about it in more depth in my Fall Nail Polish Post, so if you want to hear more about it, go there :)

5. Emoticons & Instagram
     First go follow me on Instagram, my username is ButtercupJordan. You can see that I've recently become obsessed with emoticons. I got my tablet taken away, so I've been posting my instagram pictures from my brothers ipod, and I've become obsessed with adding little pictures to everything.

6. Pink Sugar Plum Body Splash 
      This stuff is my favorite scent to wear as far as perfume goes. it seriously smells so freaking good, and they finally started selling it at bath and body works again, so go get you some.

7. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
   Considering halloween was last week, Reese's have been my vice recently. I could eat them all day. They should deliver them to my door please.

8. Starbucks/ Fall drinks
      Okay, you got me, I haven't been to starbucks yet this fall, but you best believe I will be getting my butt over there very very soon. Apple Cider is also very very good.

9. Pinterest
     Thanks to my friend Kali, I've become very dangerously addicted to pinterest. you should go follow me. And buy me the things on my christmas list board.

10. Running
      Look for fitness posts to come very soon! Also, If you have any idea's pf what I should call them lemme know :)

11. Songs
-Live While we're young (1D)
-Die Young (Ke$ha)
-Gangham Style (PSY)
-As long as you Love Me (J Biebs) It has become an Inside joke. Don't judge me.
