Happy Friday! I’m so excited to be back and “re-launching” the blog after an unintended hiatus during this insane last semester of regular classes before I have my final semester of student teaching this spring! I knew this semester of my program was supposed to be the hardest, but I think the added factor of the pandemic made it just that much harder! I’m SUPER excited to be back and posting on the blog! If you’re not following already be sure to follow me on Instagram @ellebrooksblog and like my Facebook page to be updated whenever I post here on the blog!
This past week my sister and I have been watching Christmas movies and I have been LOVING it! So far we have watched The Holidate which we thought was super funny and sweet a great Christmas movie! We also watched Bad Moms Christmas which was SO funny! Both of these movies are on Netflix! We have also watched some classics including: Elf, Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch and How the Grinch Stole Christmas! What’s your favorite holiday movie?
Carly shared a blog post on her Insta story the other day from last year that I thought was super interesting all about behind the scenes of Blogging During the Holidays!
