Merry Christmas 2016

Hello everyone!!

Just a super quick (and quite late) post to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!!



I hope everyone had a fun time celebrating, opening gifts and spending time with their families, celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, who came into the world to save us, sinners, and take for us the punishment we rightly deserve.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, and whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life." 
-John 3:16 

Yesterday I went the Christmas Eve service at my church for the first time ever. It was my first Christmas ever at home, so we got to go. It was lovely and at the end we all sang Silent Night and everybody got a candle that they held while they sang it. Then afterward my friends and I all had a gift exchange.

I also got some gifts I'm really excited about, but that will have to wait for another time. Thank you to my parents and friends for all the wonderful presents!!!

And, if you don't celebrate Christmas, that's cool! Hope you had a fun, peaceful day. And if you celebrate a different holiday or only New Years, have fun with that too!! :D

See you guys in 2017.

Recently - 8

Hello!

It's that time of the month again...time for another Recently. :D




Reading
Since I didn't have Little Town on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder on my bookshelf (I DID have a copy...I just don't know where it disappeared to...) and my next couple Trixie Belden books have yet to be ordered, I started reading The Hound of the Baskervilles. That's right, Sherlock Holmes. I'm loving it. It's such a brilliant book. And no, it's not creepy...at all...*nervously glances out window*

Writing 
Since I've been working on editing my Scarlet book for awhile now I decided to take a little break and write a modern Frozen retelling I've had in the back of my mind for awhile now. And no I'm not unhealthily obsessed with Frozen anymore I've just been watching a lot of SuperCarlinBrothers lately. ;)

Listening To 
CHRISTMAS MUSIC!!! YAY!!!! Pentatonix, for KING & COUNTRY, Owl City, and David Crowder Band have some really good Christmas songs. 

Watching
Voyager. More of it. I've gotten back into it again. ;) I just watched the episode called "Flashback" with Sulu and Janice Rand, and when they mentioned Kirk and Dr. McCoy. It was AWESOME! :D

Other Stuff
I dislike the new Blogger dash design. My reading list isn't right there anymore and for me it's out of sight out of mind. I always forget to check it and then I miss a ton of blog posts. :/
It's officially December and that means Christmas! It's going to be my first Christmas EVER at home, so I'm super excited. What do you guys think of the blog design? I decided I wanted to change it up a little bit for Christmas. It will be back to normal after the 25th. :)

Thanks for reading!

Favorite Youtube Channels

Hey guys!

I love watching YouTube, so I decided to make a list of my absolute favorite YouTube channels! I tend to like to hunt out the smaller Youtubers, but I also watch bigger ones too. Hope you guys enjoy!



Brooklyn and Bailey seem like one of the generic DIY/fashion/beauty/comedy video-makers that get made fun of a lot by parody channels, but I've been watching them for awhile and they are much more than that. They are so sweet and funny, and their family is wonderful. They are so energetic and happy! They have around 2,000,000 subscribers and they deserve it. Go check them out!










I've been watching thatssodorothy since 5,000 subscribers. Her channel has recently blown up and now she has over 70,000 subscribers, she's gaining like 200 a day!! WHAT?! But seriously she is so funny and likeable, she does DIYs and room tours and stuff like that but she definitely puts her own unique twist on everything she does. Her vlogs are also some of my favorites on YouTube, they are never boring and Dorothy always manages to make you laugh. She's also really real on her vlogs, and she's just an all-around awesome person. :D








theodd1sout makes Tumblr comics as well as Youtube videos, but I personally prefer his animations over his comics. I have binge-watched basically all of his videos, they are hilarious and fairly clean. I always get excited when he uploads a new video, and Jo and I watch it together. He makes animations and tells funny stories about whatever he feels like - I recommend his Sooubway videos. ;)







Although most people found her through music.ly, I originally found Amelia Gething on YouTube (and then of course followed her on music.ly too). She makes hilarious comedy videos that can sometimes be a little weird...oftentimes they don't make sense. I also blame her for a Bob Ross inside joke I have with my friends...definitely go check her out for some fairly clean and ridiculous comedy videos.






Fleur De Force mostly chats about makeup. She got married to her husband, Mike De Force, about 3 years ago and has a few dogs. It's fun to watch her vlogs as she lives a very exciting life and she can afford all the latest and most expensive makeup products, so if you are thinking about purchasing that new Urban Decay blush check out one of Fleur's videos and she will probably have gotten it. And it never seems like she's bragging, either. A+++ YouTuber!!








GemzMyLens is a friend of mine from online. She recently hit 100 subscribers and I'm really proud of her. ^.^ She makes tutorials/DIYs, vlogs, and makeup videos! Definitely go check her out.















I actually discovered their main (but less popular) channel before I started watching GMM. But now I watch this talk show, which comes out every weekday, whilst sipping my morning coffee. ;) Sometimes Rhett and Link make jokes that aren't so child-friendly...but for the most part they are an awesome channel!












That's all for today! There are lots of other YouTubers I love, including Minecraft YouTubers. I have subscribed to so many gaming channels I decided not to include them in this post or it would be waaaay too long. If you guys are interested in knowing my favorite Minecraft channels let me know!

Hope you guys enjoyed this post! Have you ever heard of any of these YouTubers before?
