  6. Girl I just lost my camera battery charger so I think I'm in a worse place right now. AGHHHH. I'm currently very unhappy about that :)

    I love this post so much though! Monthly wrap ups (or any type of wrap up) are my favorites. I CAN'T BELIEVE it snowed either. It's crazy. But I wouldn't mind some snow now though, tbh. And congrats on Nano! You did so awesome...especially writing 11k in one day like WHAAATHKFJSKFJDS I didn't complete it really, but then again, I'm not beating myself up too much because I kinda figured I wouldn't anyway xD

    1. *dies* *hugs charger close* noooooo did you find it?! :P

      aww, thanks, girl! ikr I still don't know how I did that 11k like craazzzyyy. lol aw, maybe you can try it next time right?! It was insane tho--I don't know if I'd do so much again xD

    Wait . . . Julia was pretending to turn into a pumpkin? Sisters are the best. 😄

    1. lol ikr xD

      ...yeaaahh. and yep they are. hahaa xD

  8. So glad you did a monthly update! I really like how you formatted it! (still need to figure out what I want to add to mine next month.)
    and I love how a random guy asked you to try gloves on. I've had similar experiences. XD

    1. aww, thanks! I tried to make it as least possibly messy as I could..although, my month wasn't as organized as this post. lol. xD

      hahaha, ikr :D

  9. "*loses lens cap outside during photoshoot* *looks for it outside three times* *finds in pocket* whoops." << this is basically my life right here described in one sentence. :''')

  10. *can't remember if I already commented on this post and hopes I didn't* xD

    HOW is your book 80k and NOT DONE?! You are insane *nodnod*. Ooh, you designed Ju's book cover? That's cool - do you think she'll be posting it? 'Cause I'd love to see (or you could share it in the Hangout :D)! Oh, and WHY was Ju pretending to turn into a pumpkin? *knows there must be a story behind this*

    And I LOVE your monthly update thing! It's so fun when bloggers do these xD. And I've about half finished my Christmas shopping *feels a tad proud of self for already being half done* xD

    1. lol nope *pats back* I know..the after effects of nano *nods in understanding* lol xD

      I HAVE NO IDEA OKAY YEP IM INSANE and yep I designed her cover -- I think she'll prob post it once she gets it in book form as will I xD I actually think she shared hers before and I actually just shared mine on there xD
