Thanksgiving And A Grandma Update

Happy Wednesday everyone! Hopefully everyone is getting back in the swing of things after being home for break. If you are feeling stressed, just power through. I promise you will make it out alive!

Speaking of being home over break, I had a wonderful break. I got to see all of my friends and family and I got to celebrate my birthday at home, which was lovely. Sad story of my existence: my mother forgot to put my birthday on the calendar. In my household, the calendar is a big deal. It is in the kitchen, which is the central spot in my house, and everything happening during the week goes on the calendar. Everyone’s birthday in my family goes on the calendar as well. Well, in typical accordance with my life, my mother forgot to put my birthday on the calendar.

The sad story that is my life.

She remembered to put my brother John’s birthday on the calendar and he wasn’t even home for it! I noticed that I was forgotten on Friday when I came home and waited till Wednesday to see if anyone would notice. No one did. I told my younger brother Ben (have you seen my vlog with him?) that mom forgot so he wrote it on the calendar for me. What a gem!

Speaking of Ben being the greatest and people forgetting about me, I saw my grandmother over break! Yes, the grandmother who favors everyone over me. (I did a vlog about her too!) My roommate Ashni came home with me for a few days over break and she got to meet my grandma. My grandma didn’t say anything particularly hateful towards me, but when I stepped out of the room for a moment, my grandmother started talking to Ashni about Ben and told her that whenever she sees Ben’s face, she just gets so happy. Needless to say, she has never said that about me. In other news, my father told me Ben was more memorable than me. #ADayInTheLife

Other than that, nothing too significant happened over break. My family all came over on Thanksgiving and it was lovely seeing them. I hope everyone had smashing Thanksgivings as well! Have a wonderful rest of the week and thanks for reading :)

P.S. My family really doesn’t hate me. I just have middle child syndrome.

Music Monday: Parachute

Happy Monday all! I hope everyone had a spectacular Thanksgiving break and ate a lot of delicious food! Since it is Music Monday I will discuss my Thanksgiving festivities (including a grandma update) in my next post! For now, let’s talk about music.

The concert I saw over the summer!

I am going to talk about Parachute today. Parachute is an American rock band from

Charlottesville, Virginia. Although “rock” is the genre in which they are described, I would say they have more of a singer-songwriter vibe mixed in. They aren’t totally mellow, but they don’t rock hard core either. Parachute has released two albums, Losing Sleep and The

Way It Was, as well as a few extended plays. Their most known song is probably “She Is

Love.” Fun fact, Parachute used to be known as Sparky’s Flaw but changed their name in 2008.

Parachute has been on tour with Kelly Clarkson, The Goo Goo Dolls, O.A.R, Matt Nathanson, and Duffy to name a few. They have also toured independently. In fact, I saw them in Joliet, Illinios over the summer with The Cab and it was a great time! Here are a few of my favorite Parachute songs! Have a great week and thanks for reading :)

Break Thus Far

Happy Wednesday to all! Even though we have been on break this week, I have been incredibly busy! As I said in my post from Friday, my roommate Ashni came home with me for the first few days of break. She got to meet my friends, see the exciting city that is Peoria, Illinois, and even meet my grandma (the one who hates me). Ashni left on Sunday afternoon and I miss her already!

Ashni and my friends Ally, Breanna, and Allison

On Monday I went to Chicago with my friends Allison and Hannah to visit our friend Maddie. Maddie goes to Loyola University and she still had class on Monday and Tuesday, so we decided to visit her for a day! We got to meet Maddie’s friends and go downtown and shop. We also ate dinner at the Grande Lux Café and got a delicious molten lava cake dessert. Basically, it was a great time.

Other than that, I have been seeing lots of friends and getting excited for Thanksgiving. The whole fam is coming over to our house for Thanksgiving dinner so I have really been looking forward to it. My birthday is on Friday so I am also looking forward to that quite a bit! One more exciting tid-bit: I am going to be filming a vlog with my awkwardly-charming younger brother Ben that is going up on Friday, so watch out for that! Have a fabulous Thanksgiving and a great rest of the week! Thanks for reading :)

Music Monday: Jason Reeves

Happy Music Monday! The other day I discovered that musician Jason Reeves started following me on Twitter and I freaked out a little bit. I don’t think I was following him, so I have no idea how or why he started following me, but I am indeed a fan, so I am not complaining!

Jason Reeves is an American singer/songwriter musician who has been making music since 2003. He has released six albums and several extended plays thus far in his musical career. He was also named the top Indie Singer-Songwriter on iTunes in 2007. Fun fact about Jason Reeves, he is a friend of Colbie Caillat and has done several songs with her. Jason’s music is really mellow and very peaceful sounding and I really like his voice! Here are a few of my favorite songs by him. Enjoy!

“You in a Song” (Ignore the video, it is kinda weird)

Thanksgiving Break

Happy Friday everyone! Everyone is heading home for Thanksgiving Break today and excitement is in the air! I am SO excited to be going home for break. My roommate Ashni is coming home with me for the first few days of break and I cannot wait for her to see my town, meet my friends, and spend time with my family! Ashni is incredibly excited too-she has had a countdown on her dry erase board for the past twenty-something days. We are friends.

Me and Ashni (I'm like, really tan.)

I am also really excited for this next week because my birthday is next Friday. I love birthdays, not just my own. I get excited for birthdays for people I don’t even know (I’m a creep, judge me). It will be great to be home for my birthday because I will get to spend it with my friends and family. I am also looking forward to catching up on television (particularly The Voice and Modern Family) and just relaxing! I have watched literally no television since I have been at school so I have fallen behind on all of my shows! I am planning on sewing a bit while I am home (who knows if that will happen) so if I make anything significant, I will definitely post some pictures!

Music Monday: Selena and JBiebs and Give Me Love

Happy Music Monday everyone! As I am sure you have all heard, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez broke up. After dating for nearly two years, the young couple called it quits due to their busy schedules. Unfortunately for Justin, he recently did an interview with Oprah in which he talks about his love for Selena. The interview is supposed to air November 25th, clearly several weeks after the break up has happened. Awkward.

DailyGrace did a video about the break up!

In other music related business, Ed Sheeran’s final music video for his album, +, debuted last week. The video is for his song “Give Me Love” (Selena and Justin could have used some love, am I right?!) I have mentioned Ed Sheeran in many of my blogs before, so obviously I am a huge fan. This song is incredible and the video is good too! All of his videos are kind of dark and match the story of the song in a creative way, making them incredibly intriguing! I will put the video below. Have a wonderful week and thanks for reading :)
