fall & felix

i am so happy fall is here! & thanksgiving is in exactly a week. & i get to finally see my sister tomorrow because of thanksgiving break & all of the students are journeying back to the parents home for the holiday : ) makes me happy.
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!

  1. Aww, cute fishy! He is really pretty.

  2. your fishy is gorgeous!
    he kind of looks like mine.. maybe they're related!

  3. Mmmmm, Thanksgiving and hot chocolate and all splendid aspects of fall. And your fish is very pretty indeed! Felix's colors are lovely, with the purples and blues and pinks and such. :)

  4. I love Thanksgiving. I love all the yummy food, and getting together with family and extended family (actually most of our family consists of extended family.). And I love our tradition of spending the entire day after baking holiday cookies.

    Hot chocolate sounds amazing. I need to recruit a friend to have a downtown adventure involving hot chocolate and fresh baked cookies.

    Felix is quite adorable! I've been wanting to get a few goldfish for awhile now. I just keep forgetting to go to the petstore.

  5. thats ok! hopefully it will be there when you get back after your break. :)

    hope you have a lovely time at home. i always loved travelling home for the holidays when living away from home.

    oh, felix is such a lovely gift from your lovely friend! how wonderful. :)

    (oh, oh!! i got the mini zine in the post, i thought that they would send you one aswell??? if not, we will have to get in contact, let me know when you get home if you have anything!)

    peace and love xx

  6. Lovely! I can't wait for Thanksgiving break.
