I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with Christmas ever since I was little — to the point where in my teen and early adulthood years it caused seasonal depression. My worst mental breakdown came around the holidays in 2014 which completely wrecked me mentally and I still to this day get hallucinations when I’m overly stressed; even if I feel fine.
So me and the holidays have never really had a very good or healthy relationship.
In the more recent years I’ve tried to focus on self traditions to find ways to enjoy the holidays because depressed or not the holidays are really a beautiful time of the year.

I wish I knew how to do those cool all in one images for stuff like this, I feel like the format I use is sort of sloppy. Whomp!
This is the Christmas list I sent my fiance; I didn’t include the stuff off my list he already got me.
I just realized though — most of the things on my wish list is makeup… and food. I wanted to incorp more skincare items since I acquired a mysterious scar on my forehead that makes it look like someone tried to bite into it. I also wanted to incorp more house things. I need to revamp my apartment and my life, basically.

Okay, I kiiiiiiiiiiiinda might had forgot it’s blogmas/vlogmas… sooo we’re just gonna wing this.
I really had no idea or any set plans on WHAT to do or feature for blogmas; we had an upcoming trip but we cancelled it recently which sucks but life happens and sometimes there’s no way around that. The most you can do is plan better next time and clear your calendar for those plans.
December is always such a struggle month between various bills, renewals, holidays, freakin Christmas. It was easy when I spent the holidays alone and always planned to work on that day anyway… family holidays have always been a bit of a struggle for me.
Christmas has never really been a big holiday growing up; my mom had set traditions that she made sure we knew how important they were but majority of the time she spent Christmas Eve/Day working. So the “celebration” part and the “family” part had never really resonated with me. Now that I’m building my own family and the fact that Bubba has such a huge close family is a bit overwhelming to me. It’s not that bad but sometimes it still makes me a little uncomfortable, at least the thought does but once I get there they make feel comfortable enough to forget that part. For that, I’ll always be thankful.
We have a few Christmas themed stuff we want to do around the Dallas/Fort Worth area this month; I’m hoping to get a few different type of photos for my blogs. But I’m so awkward in front of the camera sometimes.
We also have some wedding and Baby Lo prepping to get done… actually a lot of planning and prepping is in our very close future lol.
Here’s to December: The things I’ll discover, learn, experience and hopefully find a few new favorite things!
