I would really love some gingerbread right now.

Now that Halloween is over it's really hit me how close we are to Christmas and how much I'm looking forward to it. Last year I was all pessimistic and cynical about the whole holiday season, like "boooo Christmas, it's just a time for people to stuff themselves and get presents blah blah blah" but now I'm in the holiday spirit yay. I love everything about it- the music, the snow, the baking, the lights up everywhere.. perhaps I should save this until Thanksgiving has actually passed but it's just something I'm thinking about this morning.

And you guyssss, I am so very excited to share that I got my first blog award this morning! Yayyyyy!
These are the rules:

Seven things about myself? Hmm.
1. I am quite tall, I think probably 5'9" by now.
2. I'm left handed but a few summers ago I taught myself to write and eat with my right hand. Woo ambidextrous!
3. I wear headbands a lot.
4. Half the time I speak to my mom it's in Spanish, and half the time she speaks to me it's in French.
5. I desperately need to go shopping!
6. Sometimes when I'm bored I plan out the names of my future children.
7. I love the smell of birthday candles. Totally different than regular candles.

And I tag (sorry if some of you have already gotten this, but not too many people read my blog yet):
