Weekend Recap

I have officially finished the fall semester! I cannot be more excited. Its bittersweet I guess. One more semester until the real world hits. Ewww. adulthood.

My sister and her boyfriend flew in on Thursday night and then they headed for Arizona with my mom to visit some family. I stayed home to babysit my dad 🙂 he doesn’t know what to do when he is by himself. haha

We tried to keep the weekend full and exciting while trying not to get on each others nerves and kill each other. We managed pretty well!

Saturday we went to Knotts Berry Farm. It has been FOREVER since I have been there, so it was pretty fun. You know you are getting old though when you get off every ride super dizzy though. #grandma

On Sunday I was given the task of entertaining the dogs all morning because they were keeping my dad awake and he wanted to sleep. Life’s rough. We were out the door and on our walk by 6:15. Dogs are like little kids. They don’t ever leave you alone 🙂

On Sunday night, we went around and looked at all of the Christmas lights. There were some really well done houses.

We have already been scolded for going without the rest of the family, so we will be going again in the next few days.

My mom and sister are back in town now, so we are in full swing Christmas craze mode. Two more days!

How was your weekend?

Have you finished all of your holiday shopping?

Thinking Out Loud- 12/11/14

Hello friends! I am currently in a mind fog fueled by lots of caffeine and lack of sleep. Oh finals. The joys of being a college student. On that note though….

1. I have 5 more days of this semester and then Christmas Break!!!!! I cannot be more excited. Actually I will be 10000000001 times more excited next Wednesday when it officially break, but until then….
And after that, I will only have one more semester left of my undergraduate degree. Can someone find me a decent job please? Thanks!

2. Can I have the life of [one of my] dogs? They have it so rough. People making you every meal, cleaning up after you, sleeping all day, and then playing at your leisure! Life’s rough 🙂

The red eye remover didn’t work so well….

3. Gold nails. Love or hate them? I am torn on this color. I usually go for the unusual colors, but I am not so sure this one is working for me. Thoughts?

4. Today is the first day I have been able to wear boots this season. Exciting stuff! We are supposed to get a major rain storm tonight, so everyone and their brother are in panic mode. We’ll be okay. I promise. Well, hopefully.

5. Crows. I am not fond of crows. There are a lot of crows this time of year ALL.THE.TIME!

My mind is all over the place. Currently, I am repeating economics graphs in my head trying to make some sense of them.

Have a good weekend. Christmas is officially two weeks away! Where has the time gone?

Any plans for the weekend?

What’s the weather like where you live?

Thursday Thoughts- Its Christmas Time!

I have one more full week left of school, before finals week, and I couldn’t be more excited…except for the finals part. Can we just skip over those? Yes. Ok good. Moving on.

Thanksgiving is over [and I forgot to take any food pictures. GASP!] and now it is all things Christmas. My family is HUGE on Christmas, so, tons of decorations are a must.

1. We put our tree up this week, which is my absolute favorite! I love having it all lit up at night with all of the colorful lights. Ahhhh. So fun.

2. It finally rained this week. Like a lot. I don’t like rain. Well, it’s fine when I can cuddle up with some hot chocolate and a movie, but not when I need to look presentable and spend  a full day of school. I had to do a huge presentation yesterday, and I looked like a wet dog, because I seem to think I am above mother nature and immune to getting wet. I was wrong. Fail.  We need rain though. A lot of rain. Here in Californialand, we have a huge drought, so it was okay this time. But now I’m over it again, so I hope today is the last day.

3. I really want a DSLR camera for Christmas, so I have been crazily searching for good deals on them. Best Buy had one on black friday, so I had the intention to wait in line on Thanksgiving day to be there when they opened at 5pm. My mom wasn’t so thrilled with that idea, because she doesn’t agree with stores being open on Thanksgiving. I mean, I agree with that, but its a sale, so…. 🙂 I ended up waking up at 3am on Thanksgiving morning to order it online. It worked and I got it. Problem solved.

4. I cannot wait for this semester to end. December 19 cannot come soon enough. I contemplated not going to the last two weeks of class and just showing up for finals. Sounds like a good plan right? Jay. Kay. Well maybe…

Happy Thursday. The weekend is so very close.
