Team Edge of Youtube
Last month I talked about Matt and Amanda. Matt is one of the ‘founding brothers’ of Team Edge. Team Edge consist of brothers Joey (J-Fred) and Matt, along with their brother in law Bryan. Team Edge participates in a series of challenges and they either gain points or looses points. They have never had a boring video and they can always put a smile on my face. The relationship and the bond all three of these guys have is amazing. If I ever need a pick me up, go straight to Team Edge (well, any Matt channel).
Juicy Watermelon Candle
I love to have candles in my room. I hate having my room smell bad. My sisters are always telling me that my room smells good all the time and it’s because I always have a candle burning. When I needed to get another candle for my room, I had to get a summer smell. I love the smell Watermelon and when I saw it, I needed it. It smells so good! I think I got a huge candle for about $3.00 somewhere. It might have been on sale as well. I don’t remember quite honestly.
Marie Lu’s book The Midnight Star came out this month and she was coming to my state. When I found that out, I asked my mom if we could go and we ended up going! It was one of the best moments in my life. Marie Lu was so nice and she had on some amazing shoes (that we actually ended up having a whole conversation about when she signed my books). I loved the whole entire event and I am so happy that I was able to go.
