hey hey 👋,
November is one of my favorite months for a bundle of reasons. There’s just something about the weather/season change from Fall 🍂🍁🍃 to Winter ❄⛄☀💧, and the holiday spirit 🎅🎄 hitting full blast, that really puts me in the right mood 😆😆😊😊. i absolutely love being able to spend time with my family and friends, traveling, shopping and relaxing, and these end-of the-year months, are when all of that really, takes place. with that being said, here’s a recap of some events that have taken place throughout the busy month of November.
November 2, 3 & 5: to start off the month, we had a busy week full of volleyball sub-districts. for Monday and Tuesday, we played at Waverly, winning both which lead us to the game at Centennial High School. There we had a rough loss to Columbus Scotus, which hopefully you have already read about how good their team was in my last post. Obviously, since we lost, the season was over, but there were a lot of fun games to look back on. 👍💙
November 6: this year, i am taking Advanced Art 🎨. November 6th was a Friday, and so my class decided to take the afternoon off and head to the Capital 🏤. who ever said, we were too old for field trips 😜?!? while we were there, we explored the entire building, checking out all the different patterns that fill the place, and unfortunately had a few other students get stuck in the elevator 😮😱😲. the maintenance people weren’t very helpful, and it took forever to get them out 👊, so i would highly suggest avoiding the elevators there if possible. even though we had that not-so-fun adventure, it was still a great day!✊
November 15: even though it was a Sunday, this day was an important one, with big events that took place. not only was it my sister Shaylee’s birthday 🎁🎂🎈🎉, but my first cheer competition 🎀. i spent the day with my squad, getting ready, doing hair and make up and all that beauty stuff. the competition was at the Century Link Center in Omaha, later that night. my whole family was there, which proves my sister deserves the “best sister” award for spending her birthday, watching my team compete 💁. Overall, our squad gave it our best and did good as a whole, but didn’t place well. That was completely okay with us though, because unlike all the other teams there, we learned our routine in 2 weeks, instead of 2 months . Also the only reason we competed at that one, was for practice to get ready for our upcoming, bigger ones 👌. Here’s to only getting better and better and progressing towards the future, together as a squad! PS: cute pictures from the comp below 🙂
November 20: the next week, on Friday, the whole family got back together and headed to Olive Garden 😋 to eat and celebrate Shaylee’s birthday dinner. there’s some funny photos below that perfectly describe my family and the love we have for each other, so be sure to check them out below.
November 21: back in Omaha with the family again, this time though for Emily and Katie’s first competitive cheer competition. Emily’s team got 3rd place and Katie’s got 1st 🏆! seriously so proud of both girls, and how far they’ve come! they continue to be an inspiration to me throughout my cheer career. love them to pieces!! 💕💕
November 25-27: finally, Thanksgiving break 🍗🍞🍵🍪🍰🍯! On the day of Thanksgiving, my whole family eat a delicious lunch together, watched some football, play cards, looked at ads and overall just spent some quality time together. ❤❤ of course to continue on the tradition, we went Black Friday shopping 💲💳💰👜👛, despite the yucky weather. Shaylee & I hit some of the early stores, just the two of us. then later that night, we got together with Yaya, Sheridan, and Sheridan’s sister, Ciara. so fun to see them, and do something we all love together, on a special night!! 😁 The 27th, or the day after the holiday, of course meant the Husker vs Hawkeye game! 🏈 Shaylee and i were able to take the 2 of our fam’s season tickets, because obviously we wouldn’t miss that game for anything! ha. my grandma and Conner, took the other seats. it was extremely cool for our grandma to take just the older grandkids or as we like to be called, the “originals” 😉 to a game, and have that time with us because a lot of women or families don’t get to have those moments. ❤ i know the four of us will always cherish that memory with one another👌. given the fact that the high for the weather that day was only 20°, it was absolutely FREEZING, and we lost the game, which was a bummer, but it was still something we are thankful to have the opportunity to do, when others may not. 👌 Friday night after the game, the 10 of us got together once again, and ate dinner as a family at F.O.X, close to home. 😋
November 29: my grandpa’s birthday is on the 30th, and we were looking towards a busy week, so the fam all met up in Seward, to eat for his birthday! 🎈🎂🎁🎉 since, the weather was supposed to get bad later that day, we grabbed a quick lunch at the local Mexican restaurant, we love 😋. yumma! good eats. good people. good times.
and just like that, we’re opening December and 2015 has about reached it’s end. i know i say it a lot, but honestly… WHERE DOES TIME GO?? 😩
to be quite honest, it bums me out that as i get older, time slips away faster than a blink of an eye, but at the same time, there is so much happiness around, you can’t do anything but cherish and make the most of it. December 🎅🎄⛄❄ is so beautiful in a thousand different ways, and I’m beyond ready for it (extra thanks to all the holiday spirit, really puttin’ me in the feels this year 😊😊😂), so I’m going to do exactly that.
here’s to the final month of 2015, and making every step along the way, worth it! thanks for reading. much love, Davianne
