Blogmas: If I Sent You a Christmas Card….

Hi, guys! I’ve seen people do “If We Were Having Coffee…” and recently read If We Were Having Gingerbread Lattes… by one of my favorite bloggers. I really love reading those and I love sending Christmas cards so was inspired to do this, If I Sent You a Christmas card. I hope you guys enjoy this and feel free to do it if you’d like! If you do make sure to let me know, I’d love to read it!

If I sent you a Christmas Card…..I’d make a homemade card. I love making them. I think they are so much more personal than a store-bought, and I have fun doing it. It would probably be reindeer under the mistletoe, because I’ve really loved making them this year. You would also get to see my uniquely bad handwriting.

If I sent you a Christmas Card….. I’d tell you how excited I am for Christmas. On Wednesday I placed an order for the last of my gifts and I just got out yesterday to buy a few gifts for my dog. I’ve honestly spent way too much on gifts this year, but I saved up most of my money from a crappy job to do it and I wanted to. At the same time, I get anxious that I haven’t boughten enough. I want to buy my mom everything she wants because she is seriously the best mom in the entire world. I want to buy my dad a lot too, we don’t really have a relationship, a bad relationship at best, but he does a lot for us despite that.

I actually feel like I bought just enough for my sister, I got her a makeup palette from Smashbox that has a double ended brush, contour shades, brow shades, eyeshadows. She is a liner and mascara type of gal but I think this is the perfect palette for her. I think I’ve gotten just enough for my dog, Ruby, too. I’ve boughten her a really pretty Christmas sweater, three bags of mini treats, and three “monkeys”. We have always called her toys monkeys because her first toy was a purple sock monkey. We’ve sewed that up so many times and she has just always loved it. She’s extremely particular with her monkeys, she only likes toys with a squeaker and stuffing.  Anyway, I bought a moose toy, it’s quite small and I think she’ll like it. Yesterday I went to PetSmart and bought her a mushroom, simply because it’s small, has a squeaker and stuffing, of course. The best gift I’m gifting her this year is a new monkey. It’s a legit monkey too – it’s blue but has yellow/purple arms and legs, she is going to love it!

If I sent you a Christmas Card…..I’d tell you how this year has been. Honestly, it hasn’t been an amazing year. Everything has been either high or low. I’ve finished school, enrolled in the makeup school of my dreams, enrolled in multiple courses with said school and started this blog. At the same time, I’ve had a lot of personal lows that I’d rather not share, plus Trump somehow got elected. In short, I’m really hoping for a good year in 2018 and I have a feeling a lot of things are going to change for the better. I really hope we move. I really hope I can get approved for a scholarship to pay for my dream esthetics school. I really hope I’m happier. I really hope I can stand up for myself more. Despite the highs and lows, I am so thankful because it could have been so much worse and a lot of good things did happen.

If I sent you a Christmas Card…..I’d tell you how happy I am to have met you through blogging. I love blogging and I’m so happy that people seem to enjoy my blog. It absolutely makes my day when you guys like my posts, comment, etc.. I’ve made some friends and I’m just really happy and proud with how my blog is going so far.

If I sent you a Christmas Card….. I would wish you Happy Holidays, a fantastic New Year. I would offer to do your makeup for any holiday party you have. I’d mention I’d love to go shopping with you. I would ask how your year has been, what you hope for the New Year and I would love to hear all about it.

If You Sent Me a Christmas Card… what would it be?

  2. Ugh these posts make me so emotional! It really feels like I’m hanging out with you guys when I read them! 😭 I feel you on the dad part. I have a pretty crappy relationship with mine. This is the first time I’ve gotten him a Christmas present in several years. I hope 2018 is a good year, I need it! 😜
