Wow…it’s been over a month since I’ve last updated and blogged. That means no random ramblings, no crunchy cruelty free cosmetics, and no doofy dog photos. How have you survived? I jest. The holiday season has been kicking my butt; and Christmas hasn’t even come yet. But seriously, where has 2015 gone? Here’s how I’ve been spending the last few weeks of a really awesome year!

What are those???

I ran my first official 5k in my hometown! I’ve been running on and off for a few years, but finally took it seriously in 2015. I’ve started running with my dog, too. Keith came to support me on Thanksgiving morning with my Mom and my mother in law. Big props for them since it was 40 degrees out. I finished in just about 38:00. 🙂


Myles is 9 months old! Where does the time go? He’s just over 50 lbs and has some more growing to do. He got groomed for the first time and passed his AKC S.T.A.R Puppy test. We’ll be continuing obedience training and moving on to Canine Good Citizen in 2016. The final goal? Myles will hopefully become a therapy dog so I can bring him to my job, other schools, hospitals, and more!

Sniif, sniif, yum!

I love my doTerra oils! I’ve been diffusing Holiday Joy which has a sweet, spicy scent to it. It’s such a great mood booster and really sets the theme for holiday happenings. You’d better believe it’ll be going when we host Christmas Eve tomorrow night. 

Gifts galore!

I think I have the most generous students ever this year! This Harry Potter Pop Figure was my first gift and the generosity continued with EOS hand cream, The Body Shop butter, Starbucks gift cards, Snoblove Soaps, ORLY, Peppermint Bark, and a beautiful necklace. Can you believe my students shopped cruelty free? I love it! 

Here’s to 2016, if I don’t post beforehand! May you all have a Merry and bright holiday!
