Thankful Thursdays #27 – December 31st, 2020

I cannot believe this is the last Thankful Thursday of the year. But don’t worry I will definitely keep on posting this every Thursday in the new year. I really enjoy writing these posts.

I have a lot to be grateful for this week. I would love to hear about what everyone is grateful this week, and even throughout the year, too.

Here is my list.

  1. I had a lovely Christmas. My roommate made us steaks and baked potatoes, with a Caesar salad. It was really delicious. It was a fun night considering we couldn’t really see our families with the new restrictions.
  2. Disney+ released a new movie called Soul, it was an amazing film. It’s about discovering your purpose in your life. I loved watching that movie. I feel extra inspired to start the year off with having watched that movie. I can’t wait to watch the new series on Netflix called Bridgerton. Especially since Shonda Rhimes produced the show. It is based off a book series.
  3. My boyfriend and I enjoyed four days of watching football. It was even better, because our team won.
  4. I briefly saw my family for an exchange outside of our house, maintaining our distance from one another. I got a bunch of cool stuff, stuff I needed like body wash, a candle, money, and gift cards.
  5. Our room is all clean for the new year’s arrival. That is always exciting. 🙂

Day 190 of 192

This item is from Tuesday.

I found this book The Hunchback of Notre Dame while I was cleaning and going through my belongings. I haven’t read this in a really long time, so I quickly glanced it over. I decided to give this to my sister, so we can help my niece have a big library of books. She seems like she will really like stories. I hope so, I think reading books is amazing! I can’t wait to have sleepovers with her, and reading cool books with her.

Watch a Movie

On this edition of Feel Good Friday, my suggestion is to watch a movie. It can be your absolute favourite movie, it can be a Christmas movie, it can be a new movie you haven’t seen before, any kind of movie at all.

Watching a movie will help you out so much. I heard that watching something you have already seen before, it can help relax and calm you, because you already know what is going to happen next.

Later on today, my boyfriend and I are going to watch Soul, it’s the newest Disney movie that is coming out today on Disney+. My boyfriend and I are super excited to see it. I feel like it’s going to be a tear jerker. I love those kinds of movies.

Almost There

Here is today’s edition of Music Mondays. One of my favourite Disney movies is Princess and the Frog. It’s about this girl Tiana, and how she inspires to have her own restaurants, called Tiana’s Palace. She knows how hard it is going to be to make it work, but she is going to continue to work hard until her dream comes true.

It inspires me because no matter how big or small my goals are, I can accomplish anything.

“So I work real hard each and every day
Now things for sure are going my way
Just doing what I do
Look out boys, I’m coming through”

-Tiana, Almost There

Favourite Friday #2

Graphic Designer: The Midnight Book Blog

I was really inspired and wanted to partake in this post, although I got so busy with it being my Thanksgiving Weekend. Now, I’m just catching up with all of my posts.

I first saw this on https://midnightbookblog.wordpress.com/ ‘s blog, and I loved the idea of this post.

https://midnightbookblog.wordpress.com/ says anyone can participate in this post, although she does asks that you can tag her, so she can read your responses, as well.

Every Friday we talk about a different topic. The past Friday’s topic was talking about our favourite book from our childhood or from when we were teens.

I have a few books that summarize my childhood. I have always been a big reader.

My favourite books are Little House On the Prairie, my mama would read these books when I was younger. Although I am sad because life got too busy and her and I never got around to finish the series. She told me that she used to read these books when she was going up, too.

Another one of my favourite is Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. I liked this book, because when I was younger, my sister insisted that I read this book. So her and I used to read these books.

And lastly, I loved reading Disney fairy tales. I would get my Dad to read them to me when I was younger before bed. He didn’t mind.

Day 86 of 192

This is Wednesday’s item.

My sister bought me this for my birthday many years ago. I haven’t used it in awhile since my hair is really thick. But when I used it, I really liked it. I loved that the princess side opened up into a mirror, which I thought was pretty cool.

I was thinking of giving this to my niece, but it would need a deep clean first.

Iced Peach Matcha Latte – Tea Tuesday

Hey everyone! Welcome to another addition of Tea Tuesday. Today, I decided to have an iced peach matcha latte.

My sister bought my boyfriend and myself somewhat matching mugs last Christmas. I love tea and Disney, so it was the perfect gift.

First put the ice in the mugs.
I put in five scoops of peach matcha into my matcha bowl, and then I began whisking it after adding boiling water to make it liquid.
Then pour the matcha over ice, while the milk is frothing.
I got thirsty and took a few sips, before I remembered/realized I didn’t capture the moment of the frothed milk.

How Far I’ll Go Alessia Cara

Happy Music Monday! I absolutely adore Alessia Cara. Even though she didn’t write this song, she sang it so amazingly. What I love about her is that she sings motivational songs, and she is an incredible role model on anyone. This song was originally written by Lin-Manuel Miranda for the Disney’s movie Moana. Aleesia Cara sang this song at the end credits of this movie, and this song was sang by Auli’i Cravalho sang this during the movie.

This song is wonderful and inspiring because it is about answering your call, or your purpose in your life, and seeing how far your dream will take you. What is empowering is that we may not know where are dreams are going to take us, but that’s all part of the journey.

This song won a Grammy for Best Song Written for Visual Media.

“The line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me
And no one knows, how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I’ll know, how far I’ll go”

-Lin-Manuel Miranda, How Far I’ll Go
