Christmas Board Games

monopoly_racer_7Dii2948

I’m pretty sure that during the holidays, every family plays at least one board game. For me, it’s inevitable that I get frustrated with SOMEONE when so many people are around, so this is a good thing for me to get my frustrations out on too. You could absolutely crush someone that you’re annoyed at, and they won’t even know you’re frustrated at them. Anyway, here are a couple board games that are, (in my opinion) amazingly fun games you could play with family or friends during the holidays.

1.) Monopoly

I’m pretty sure everyone has played this one before, but if you haven’t, you should try it. It’s really fun! A whole bunch of recreational centres have this game. To find out how to play, click here.

2.) Suspend

This isn’t really a board game, but it’s a really fun game to play. Also, it’s not very widely known like Monopoly. To learn how to play, click here.

3.) Risk

With my family, whenever we play this game someone is crying by the end and someone doesn’t get dinner. It’s also not especially widely known, but it’s pretty fun! To learn how to play, click here.

4.) Backgammon

This one is WAY more popular among adults then kids. I would always play with my dad, it’s super fun! To find out how to play, click here.

5.) Settlers Of Catan

I saved my personal best for last! This one is my all-time favourite, and was introduced to me last year by my brother. There are 2 extension kits, (the extension kit adds more gameplay features, basically making it more fun) and I LOVE IT! To learn how to play click here.

Welp, those were 5 super fun board games you can play over the holidays! I would recommend all of these, they are all the kinds of games you would play over and over again! Is there one you love to play? Have a great day!

Snow Sports!

Yep, it’s that time of year again. The nearest mountain opened on Dec. 1st, and a little more than half my class is counting the days till they get up there, including me. Most of us ski, some snowboard, and some just like being up there. Personally, I have been skiing for 4 years, and this year is the year I want to try snowboarding. Every year I get a mountain map, and I highlight every run I do. Each year one of my goals are to do every run on the mountain! (Not counting the cross-country runs). Last year, I only missed three runs on the whole mountain. Two double-black diamonds, and one that is black at the top and blue at the bottom. I was sooo close! Do you do any snow sports?

Have a great day!

Thor, My Doggy!

Thor, my doggy, is a one and-a half year old Golden Doodle puppy. I gotta say, I love dogs and cats all equal, but my favourite doggy breed is definitely the golden doodle. I had 2 cats recently, brother and sister Maine Coons named Max and Ruby. I love them and my doggy so, so much! So, I’m going to include a couple facts about my favourite doggy breed!

  • The golden doodle is a hybrid between a poodle and a golden retriever, which is where it got it’s name!
  • Golden Doodles are hypoallergenic, meaning they have hair, not fur, so they don’t shed and people mildly allergic to dogs don’t need to worry about allergic reactions!
  • They are super family-friendly and pet-friendly, so they are a great starting dog for a family!
  • Golden Doodles are super-easy to train, making it a good dog to train for first-timers or timid owners.
  • These doggies aren’t well suited to apartments, because they like large, fenced in backyards.
  • Golden doodle come in multiple colours, despite the name. They can come in white, pale-cream, red, golden, black, brown, dark-brown and silver.

This is my doggy, Thor!

Hope you liked the post! Do you have a favourite dog or cat breed? Have a great day!

Drawing Challenge!

If you read my About Me post, you would know I love ♥ all types of art ♥ , but especially drawing and sketching. I got the idea to try to make my own drawing challenge! I thought I should post it so if anyone else loves to draw and sketch, or even if they don’t like to, they can try it!

Pretty much what it is is a list of a whole bunch of drawing prompts. There is one for every day of the month, (any month) and the goal is to draw something, even if it is a tiny little doodle, of the first thing that comes to mind when you read the prompt. It could be a piece Van Gogh would be proud of or something so bad the dog wouldn’t even WANT to eat it, it doesn’t matter! You don’t have to be good at art to do this challenge. In fact, this could be how you get better!

After the month is over, even if you missed a couple days, I can bet your mind will be blown when you see how much your artwork has gotten better. I’ve also included a picture of what came to my mind when I read the first prompt!

About Me!

Hello people! My name is Sarah, and I live in Comox, B.C, Canada.

I have a golden doodle puppy named Thor at home. I’m pretty sure he can turn anyone into a puddle of goo.

I love to rollerblade, as well as draw manga. My favourite anime is Naruto, by far. I have a weird obsession of having Grumpy Cat for any sort of personal background. Also, my favourite season is winter by far, because I love to ski!  I have been playing Legend Of Zelda, Ocarina Of Time for two years and I still can’t get past the Shadow Temple.

Also, I’m that person who hates mushroom every way except for stuffed mushroom caps. I mean, that’s just plain strange. Also, even though it sounds weird, I eat tomato sandwiches. I mean, just toast, cheese, mayo, and tomato. It’s surprisingly delicious.

Around two or three times a year, I try coffee all over again (especially the white chocolate mocha from Starbucks ’cause it sounds like I’d enjoy it) because some people keep saying “oh, taste buds change!” For me, they really don’t. Especially the white chocolate mocha.

I’ve listed a couple of things about me, you could always leave a comment about you!

Anyway, thanks a latte for reading!
