Normally you tell kids not to say bad words. This dad decided he would ask his child, clad in a shirt with a rooar-ing dinosaur and clutching his Dixie cup, to list all the bad words he knows. Butt seems to be a common theme in his bad word vocabulary..

This little creature has been part of family traditions for generations but 2005 saw the release of the “Elf On The Shelf” book which spurred a whole new love for the tradition. Brought to us by Carol Aebersold and her daughter Chanda Bell, the book was illustrated by Coë Steinwart. The story goes that the elf watches the children during the day to see who is naughty or nice and returns to the North Pole each night to report to Santa. The elf gets up to mischief every night too and children must locate him everyday, it is an amazingly fun tradition for any family. The Elves come as both male and females and their are accessories for them too. Have you got your elf? Was it a tradition in your family?

You wake up in the morning knowing you’ll be eating an amazing meal later in the day.
But for some reason cooking anything feels like it takes years instead of hours..
It’s like someone is handing you a million dollars when the food is finally put on the table.
When you’re told you can eat, you don’t hold back.
Not everyone understands enthusiastic eaters.
You avoid that healthy looking dish by taking extra mashed potatoes.
You will fight it out for that last roll.
And you know it’ll only be a couple of hours before your raiding the leftovers for a turkey sandwich.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!
The time of year has once again come around where we are reminded how much we have to be grateful for. We all have amazing things in our lives, and everyone now and again, it’s nice to take time to remember how much we have got instead of how much we haven’t got. We are going to use this article to remind ourselves of the many things we are grateful for,
Living in Los Angeles
Living here is probably one of the most stressful and exciting things you could possibly do with your life, but we wouldn’t change any of it for the world.
We have so many amazing friends in our life, both at home and in L.A. and we wouldn’t be who we are or where we are today without them
We are unbelievably blessed to have the most supportive families. Our families are the reasons we are living in this wonderful city, they have given us the unwavering emotional and financial support and we will never be able to repay them but we will be forever thankful to have such wonderful parents.
We are thankful for the different experiences we have had in our lives, they have shaped us and although we sometimes think if something hasn’t gone our way it is the end of the world. That one missed experience has led to so many more incredible experiences.
Being On The Right Track
We both have jobs right now, they may not be our dream jobs but we know they are putting us on the right track and despite our constant frustrations with our careers when we take a minute to think about it we couldn’t be more thankful to firstly have jobs and secondly we are on our way to where we need to be, we just need to be a little more patient.
What are you thankful for today?
This past weekend, as we’re sure you all know, was The Hunger Games: Catching Fire fan camp in Los Angeles. We attended along with Fanspired’s Heather and Melissa. They’ve been to numerous other fan camps before, but this was our first, so we weren’t quite sure what to expect. Heather and Melissa briefed us on what we should expect and how we needed to be pushy because people could get a little crazy at fan camp sometimes. There were lots of giveaways and cast signings, but we sadly didn’t get all the cast signings at the fan camp. We were however, front row at the premiere so that was the most amazing experience of the weekend! We had an amazing time at fan camp and we even slept in a tent! Lindsey decided to vlog the entire experience for her youtube channel, so if you couldn’t make it or don’t live in LA check it out below!
