Christmas Wishlist 2015

banner

Hey guys!

So I’m doing this Christmas wishlist thingy again. As you can see I’m mainly asking for clothes this year even though my closet looks like it’s about to explode right now! We have no spring or winter cleaning in our house. We also don’t know if some of my shirts fit me anymore! What’s sad is that I have two drawers for my pants/leggings and neither one are full. My mom recently threw away a lot of pants because I can no longer wear them. ūüė¶ I mainly want more plaid/flannel shirts and pajama bottoms.

Clothes:

Green Flannel Top
Navy Blue Plaid Top
Gray Plaid Top

In This Moment T-Shirt
Butcher Babies T-Shirt
Jack √ú T-Shirt

Body Candy Juniors Sleep Pants (Only in Zebra, Multi Cheetah, & Atzec)

If there are any family members that are unsure of my size in clothes, just ask my mother! If you want some more suggestions to what else I think besides a darker shade of purple and skulls. I do like leopard print, graphic tees, superheroes (Marvel), Harry Potter, solid colors, rhinestone. Try to stay away from actual glitter on shirts, my hands are really sensitive to different textures: glitter is one of my worst enemies! And don’t fuss about the sleeves on both shirts and pants, if it’s too long we can always roll them up!

Music:

For my birthday, I originally wanted to get a new (small) CD player. An ode to the first one I ever got as a kid. I’ve went through seven big ones in about 11 years. The small one always worked up until a couple of years ago and it just kind of crapped out completely. That was a sad day for me! Anyways, my mom got me the speaker tower as a present for my birthday last month. As much as I like it, my original plan kind of fell apart. I really miss playing my CDs. It’s a simple thing that I still enjoy and so after thinking about it out loud with my nana. She told me about an old small boombox that my papaw doesn’t use, because it wasn’t loud enough! That’s where I got it from!

Now that we know it works, I want to add to my collection!¬†For a girl who’s had not only a broke stereo system, but also broken iTunes since the start of 2015, I’ve still managed to consume a LOT of music through Spotify! You’ll know more about that once I start on my Best Of posts at the end of the year! I’m only including like five CDs to this list as I think that’s all I think I’ll be able to handle considering this little boombox only plays one CD at a time. My bigger one could store five at a time. The plus side to this is that this guy has to stay on the floor so I can switch CDs in and out of it. That’s another thing I like about it too!

Last Christmas, well actually like a week before, we found a couple in town selling pillows. Ironically enough, pillows were on that¬†wishlist and this was the only thing I got to have early! That pillow only lasted like three months! I’ve switched my pillows like five times this year… I have a big head, I can’t help it. So I would like a new pillow for Christmas! I definitely don’t need any more blankets. I literally have two on my bed right now! Another item I’m asking for that was on my last wishlist is a curtain rod. No, I didn’t get one last year even though quite a few people thought it was a good idea!

I honestly don’t know what else I want. I definitely don’t need anymore socks or coloring books. My nana and I are kinda of obsessed with nail polishes. She’s running out of room in her cabinet for them, but I think we need more! She likes the nude, pinks, and berry shades, whereas I’m into both darker and bright colors! Neither one of us like glitter because it takes forever to remove.

This might be a little strange, but what I really want for Christmas isn’t something that you can¬†give¬†in the sense of a regular present. My ultimate Christmas present is to be able to do more things, which is a little more harder to accomplish since it’s getting colder and with out snow blizzards we tend to get towards mid-January to the end of April. I want to learn to do more things, I know I say that a lot lately but it’s true. I do want to learn more about my family history, figure out what else I can do with my toes, etc. When it gets colder outside I tend to get more stiff in my body. I have a little bit more pain in different areas, so I want to be fully distracted whenever those times come. I’m basically asking for more strength and energy. I’m also saying I’d like to explore a little more too!

Yeah, this is my little Christmas list for the year! If you’re still struggling to figure something out for me, cash works too! Is it just me but as we get older and older our lists gets more complicated and clothes wise than it used to be when we were kids? Maybe that’s why everybody thinks I’m difficult to shop for nowadays!

A Late Thanksgiving Feast!

Hey guys!

I know I’m a bit late getting this post up, but like last year my family had our Thanksgiving dinner on Black Friday instead of Thursday, because my mom would rather work on that holiday then both Christmas and NYE. For us, since some of my family live up north from us, it kind of works out well because then they get to celebrate with them first and come down the next day and eat with us crazy people!¬†In all of the days I posted my OOTDs last week, I took over my camera. The one time I didn’t take mine–I thought with everybody around I wouldn’t need it–we had less 10 pictures. I didn’t have much to work with because in the pictures we did get included my dad and he doesn’t like his pictures on Facebook, much less my blog! So I’m only including two pictures out of the whole day.

1471771_3621088783949_1795380296_nI woke up Friday morning around 7:30am, a half hour before I was expected to wake up. My mom wanted to be over and start cooking at 9am. We were a little late. I wore a new outfit I got while we went out the week before. I’d be waiting to show it off since I came home that day. I wore a maroon, black, and white button-up plaid shirt and maroon leggings all from Charlotte Russe! I was very warm in that kitchen, but I didn’t notice it much because somebody was smart and opened the window in the screen door beforehand! My Aunt Laurie and nana made assortment of rolls: cinnamon and orange. I devoured an orange roll when I got there! Basically all of the women spent most of the day in the kitchen, including papaw, Uncle David, and cousin Taylor.

Probably an hour before we ate, my Aunt Laurie, nana and I decorated the cupcakes that she made the night before. I started out doing the icing but that was a little too difficult for me to do, so I decided to stick to sprinkle duty! We usually eat around 1pm or if we’re late (or turkey’s not done) it’ll be 2pm instead. I think everything was done by 12:30pm, which is literally unheard of! It was kind of hilarious that the ones who used to yell at the youngsters to sit at the kiddie table aka card table, were the ones sitting at that table! My sister and I had the “special” seats. We sat next to our papaw who always has a turkey leg for Thanksgiving! We have annual picture tradition now that before he takes a bite of it that we need a picture of him holding it! Poor guy! He always thinks he breaks a camera afterwards too!

After we were stuffed, just before my dad went home everybody wanted to take pictures with one along. Somehow I missed out on getting a one-on-one picture with my dad. ¬†Suddenly everybody left to go take a nap except Taylor (he tried to!), my Aunt Katt, and I. We all sat out in the kitchen and talked. She had some berry slushie alcoholic drink. She let me have some of it, which was nice. I didn’t have a lot of it which I felt was smart. I am going to need to the right name of it for NYE. The three of us actually played the new game. It was actually¬†pretty interesting and as since it was just us, we did it the right way such as using the board, dice, etc. On occasions we didn’t use the timer but it was really fun! As we kept going on, my nana, papaw, and my mom all kind of joined in and were yelling out answers. Nobody actually won, we were kind of stuck and nobody would land on a one. We’ll have to play at Christmas whenever we have people come down again.

I’m sorry this seemed so short, but this was basically all that happened that was on the positive side.

OOTD: Harry Potter!

009

Hey guys!

I’ve got a new OOTD post for you! Two weeks ago, my parents took me out shopping for a little getaway as I had some birthday money to spend! I was so happy because I’ve been wanting to go to the mall for a few months but I also wanted to save up my money too. Let’s just say I did some damage! I had fun so that’s all that matters!

I am becoming increasingly obsessed with Harry Potter. I have every film on my DVR but I’ve only read one of the books. I would like to read the whole series someday! While we were shopping, I went into Hot Topic and literally in the front of the store were the HP stuff and I thought I was going to scream with joy! My favorite film is¬†Prisoner Of Azkaban¬†and I basically had my eyes glued to this¬†“I Solemnly Swear I Am Up To No Good”¬†shirt.¬†I had to buy it!¬†If it wasn’t HP related I’m pretty sure a few people would just agree with it and think of me. This was in the men’s section and S/M size the price is $20.50. At least that’s what it is saying on the website!

The leggings were a funny story! I usually never buy anything from Charlotte Russe. My sister loves it, it’s very girly full of lace tops and a lot of gorgeous high heels. All the heels were replaced with boots when we went in there, I was very sad but I guess not¬†that¬†sad considering I stayed in there and bought three different things. The leggings are so comfortable! The sleeves are really long and they’re a bit baggy on my actual legs but they’re fleece-lined and I thought I need another color than besides black. So I got these in emerald green. I thought this was quintessential autumn/winter look. The website are selling them for $5 right now if you want a pair like mine!

What do you think of this outfit? Yay or nay?

Favorite Shoes From Charlotte Russe!

Since being a wheelchair user and using my feet to do everything, including drive my chair, wearing any kind of shoes isn’t realistic for me. I used to wear sneakers back in school, I’m still a fan of Nike sneakers. Whenever I would go to dances in middle school, I wore black shoes with a small heel. After what happened when I was in eighth grade and my controller got caught in between my heel and I almost ran into the wall I never wore high heels again. I still love high heels though! I have a whole Pinterest board deciated to my love of heels, sneakers and sandals. So I don’t exactly hate them as you would expect.

My sister got these pair of black sandals that had a cute zipper on the back of the heel and had gold studs all around the front of them. I saw them while I was scooting in our house and I became a two year old and put them on! I definitely can’t fit into them like she can, but they are so bad ass that I would love a pair if I could! As I was reminiscing about that moment I thought about creating a little guide for some of you on some of my favorites I’ve found because in all honesty I love going through the shoe aisles in different stores. Blondie got her sandals at the best place, Charlotte Russe! They have a better selection of shoes than clothes and that’s just my opinion. Blondie has a more girly girl style so she tends to find her clothes there and Forever21.

This might be a guide, but I looked at all of the sections of the store’s website for the ones that I liked the most, so this could be an unrealistic wishlist per se too! If anybody remembers my Hot Topic wishlist post I did recently, everything on that post was for spring/summer but all items were black and nothing looked “spring-y” so I have to say I’m pretty proud of myself for going for the girly looking shoes this tine around! I’ve got all of the links underneath the picture there if you can see and every pair is under $40 and just in case the sale that most were selected on the website, I’m mentioning what they really cost in case the sale goes before this post goes up!

I’m actually a big fan of Gladiator sandals, but I couldn’t find anything on the website that I really liked so these platform sandals were second best! I loved the first pair mostly because of the baby blue color against the wooden part. To me, blue, white, and pink shades scream “SPRING” loud and clear! The next pair I think I only picked it out because even though it has a white strap and cute big buckle, I put it on here because the base is darker in shade the rest! I think this are my favorite out of all eight shoes! I cannot believe I actually found a pair of pink — hot pink too that I liked! It’s very rare that I find something in any shade of pink and buy it! As much as I don’t like to admit to it, I have quite a lot of pink clothes and socks in my closet! Anyways, I think I liked these because of the straps were skinnier than the others! They just seem more girly too! For the last one at the top, I was really conflicted because on the website they have a nude (which is above!) and a silver pair right next to each other. I was very into both of them! So I’ve included both links! The nude is above and if you want to see the silver pair click here. That’s the end of the sandals part, now onto the high heels and sneakers!

I looked up their wedges and I absolutely hated them!! They just look disgusting to me! I am actually a fan of flats because I find they’re really boring too, so that’s why I didn’t include them in this post! The first pair of heels I found actually have two different floral designs at the toes. If you go on the link, it’ll be part of the sizing and purchasing. I also found a pair just like this one but in white instead of black and I think the floral design was in green and yellow. It was really pretty! Over the years, looking at different types of heels I’ve become quite picky and I hate the pointy front of some heels, but I love number six because of two reasons: it’s simple and classy! Perfect shoes to wear to an outdoor wedding too! Since I discussed of how much I love sneakers I thought I’d put up one that I liked the most and this one caught my eye and said “get me!” I love the feminine look to it. It looks like a good walking shoe to me, but what the hell do I know about walking? I like the floral design on the side and thought it was cute! Last one, my mom and sister are obsessed with these shoes! They each have their own pair in different colors and I thought the light blue was a little bit more me.

So for my first shoe haul, what were your favorites? I know most would probably say “go barefoot” to this question, but what is your favorite spring/summer shoe to wear?¬†

My Saturday

Today was a good day. I expected all four of us to go to the mall because dad usually wants to go to Gador Mountain. This time it was a girl’s day, which rarely happens since mom always had to work and Emily always had something else to do too. Even though our Saturday’s consist of going to my nana’s for lunch. I’ve done that three times this week. Not complaining. I don’t think I’ve gotten out of the house this many times in one week. Stayed at home for two whole days. Weird.

We went to Red Lobster (mom’s choice, she was the driver we didn’t have a choice) and afterwards went to the mall. I told you about how I was worried about my shoe problem and how it might come out. It did. I saw so many heels, and lots of purple ones too. Went into Charlotte Russe, it must be new because we’ve never been in there before. They had two different purple shoes. We went into Journey’s and I saw a guy that looked exactly like Linkin Park’s guitarist Brad Delson, not kidding either. Even my mom thought so!

We went into there and Charlotte Russe three times. Wet Seal we went in there about twice. Maurices was also twice too. Since I went online to look ahead of different shirts and pants. I had originally picked out four shirts and ended up buying only shirts from Vanity. I love it there! I went into Hot Topic hoping to buy a Linkin Park shirt for my friend since she doesn’t have a LP shirt yet and I really wanted to get her one. They didn’t have any adult sizes, just kids. That bummed me out. However the cashier has they had a poster but you had to order it online. So I’m getting a Linkin Park poster. FINALLY!

I only got a total of three things. Less than both my mom and sister combined. Although I did help pick out some of the shirts my sister got. She also helped me get mine off the racks and there was a mirror at my height and she put the shirts up to my chest to see if I’d actually like them or not. She also held the shirts so I could feel the glittery parts of the shirts on my hands. I hate glittery shirts because it is rough on my hands and bothers me for the whole day. I’m worried my pink striped shirt will bug me because it actually has glitter on it. So I’m crossing my toes it doesn’t.

My mom got her uniforms and some Altanta Braves stuff. She loves them. I wanted to get some Butler sweats and I actually found a pair just one problem they were XL. I have long legs but they’re not that long! They were stocked of shirts though, but I already have a Butler shirt. So I’m good there. Emily wanted this pink and black hoodie for Ball State but by this time she only had about $8. The whole day just rocked. I’m very proud of myself too I didn’t care people were staring at me everytime I went to update my Twitter on my phone. I also didn’t go crazy like I did the last time I went to the mall.
