Foxin’ Around Edinburgh

To be completely honest, this post is going to be a completely random collection of moments from this past month. I just named it after my Halloween costume, because it was a cute title.

But let’s start with that, shall we? I was a fox for Halloween. To those of you who don’t already know: I have a small (okay, large) obsession with foxes. Such cute and sneaky little animals.

I was the official mascot for my friends dressed as a dead American football team.

Since we are on the animal tract, here are some pictures that prove the Ole Miss girls here in Edinburgh are still out representing Mississippi. Every single person who finds out that’s where we are from feels the need to go, “Oh! M-i-ss-i-ss-pp-i!”. Yes, congratulations, you can spell where I am from. Ten dollars says you can’t tell me where it’s located (they never can).

Let’s see… What’s next? Oh! I took a small day trip to Irvine in Ayrshire, Scotland. Teeeeeeny tiny little town. It was cute though.

Everyone that knows me accepts me despite my love for the Disney character Pluto. I say despite, because this love is so strong that it’s a bit alarming. So, it’s needless for me to say that when I panicked in the middle of the street when I saw this:

LOOK ON THE DRUM. LOOK.
LOOK ON THE DRUM. LOOK.

Before I make myself look any younger than five years old, I’m going to change the topic. There is a legend in Edinburgh that if you can find the Heart of Edinburgh (which is literally stones set into the shape of a heart on the Royal Mile), you are supposed to spit on it, and you’ll have good luck in your love life from then on until forever. My friend Amy and I did this. I’m not ashamed. (Only because it was late at night when no one was watching).

Literal and figurative. Cute, Edinburgh.

Speaking of Amy, this is her: (we are slightly attached now)

We wanted proof that we had drinks in the Smallest Pub in Scotland.

And the last addition to this post of random events in my life is a picture of me in front of a random sign. There was absolutely no point to this photo other than I just really wanted to mimic the weird looking thing. So, me and my starbucks decided to do just that. I’d say I did it just in time, too, since they took down the sign this week. (I know- you’re as heartbroken as I was).

This sign. I laugh every single time.

Well, there y’all go. A quick and easy update on the randomness of my life here. I’m about to go for a threepeat and update again after this. After all, next is a post on CHRISTMAS: the most wonderful time of the year. Andddd another visit from a friend! Who could it be? You’ll find out soon!

Cheerio, y’all ❤
