i'm home at my parents for the thanksgiving break now. felix & i made the trip safely on the train (yes, i brought my fish with me to mom & papi's). now i have to clean my room out. they've been using it as storage...& now my sister & i will have to sleep in it...somewhere...haha.
photo from here
i'm on the train going home right now & when i get home i will chose a winner for the giveaway!
allsion: felix is flattered you think so : )
kassandrah: hello! oh really?? neat! what is your fish's name?
natalie: i love his colors too. i don't think i've ever seen a beta with the colors he has. hope your thanksgiving is wonderful!
amy: what a nice tradition! my family always wakes up at 4am to go black friday shopping. every year i think why do i do this?! oh right, $3 movies, that's why. a downtown adventure sounds good! blog about it : ) i was thinking of getting a goldfish as well, but i hear they are really dirty...so you have to clean the tank often. but get one! & then felix & it can be friends : )
inside the cabinet of wonder: yup it should be. i told lydia that i was expecting something coming so she can keep an eye out for it. you are so right that the gift & the friend are lovely :)) & i'll check about the zine when i get home for sure & let you know.
cassidy: hello! mine has just started!! & i am stoked.

another thing that makes me happy is the first birthday gift i got this year. about a week ago on friday, vaine & i went to breakfast with hot chocolate & coffee. then, we set off on an expedition to find the perfect beta fish, his gift to me. we stopped at ross & bought a jar for a fish home & then proceeded to a few pet shops. we finally found the right one & vaine bought one for himself too (called mr. blue). i would like to introduce you to felix my new fish! i love his pink bottom fins! (you can't really tell that they are pink in the photo though...)
i am heading home tomorrow for a week of holiday break. so happy. can't wait for some really good food!
p.s. the giveaway ends tomorrow! be sure to enter!
amy: oh! maybe at a zine or independent publishing company? or you can buy it on amazon : )
dandelionkisses: awwe hehe ok : ) yes! already, can't wait!
mckenzie mullen: hello! haha! really?? nice. it's a really great store! i wanted to buy some zines, but there were to many to choose from. haha. & they have really cute hair pins & nice wallets. aahhh, i have to go back.
elle: hello! i love the art on the planner. it is usually $16 but i found it for 1/3 of that price!
