on looking good

When you look good, you feel good. Loving the new Blazer and pencil skirt I bought today :-)

on the frustrations of the immature

I hate the idea that some people are so set in their ways and thoughts that nothing, absolutely nothing, will get them to think differently about a situation. Yes you might have had your own opinions initially but once things have been explained can't you just get over your selfish ways? Isn't it sometimes better to own up that things are different than you once thought just so that everyone can get along and have a good time. I swear, some people...

on the perfect Christmas

I was extremely blessed this Christmas from everyone in my family and I can't believe how awesome some of my gifts were. Here are a few of the best:

1. The Game of Things: I haven't been able to play it yet but I'm very excited to. It might not be something that gets played all the time because you have to have at least 4 people but it'll be something different to play.
2. Guess Rhonda Hobo Purse: I love love love this purse. I've been wanting a new purse for a while now and wanted something that was fun without being obnoxious. It holds a lot more than it looks like it would which is always a plus for me. Plus the inside has lots of pockets for things like chapstick and headphones that always seem to make a cluttered mess in the bottom of my other purses.
3. Brighton Purse Hook: I've always hated situations when you're out and have no where to comfortably put your bag. I don't like putting purses on the floor and sometimes you don't have room on your seat/the back of your chair to put it either. I'm sure I will be using this all the time, plus its a Brighton heart so it'll look wonderful on the table. I also got a Brighton ring and necklace that are fancy enough to dress up a nice pair of jeans but casual enough to wear more often than some jewelry.


4. Belkin Voice Recorder for iPod: This plugs right into my ipod and creates audio files of anything that I want to record, for me it will most likely be always lectures. Its just super awesome to be able to have them right on my iPod and its also possible to transfer them to my computer through iTunes if I want to email them or listen to them another way.


5. Starbucks Holiday Mug: I've always had tumblers but never really had many good mugs to use when I'm at home. I like this one because its a grande size so it doesn't limit me to a smaller coffee plus its festive and I'll always have a red cup year round. With this I also got Starbucks Espresso Roast for my espresso machine so I should be all set for the semester to start.


6. Victoria's Secret Sleepover Flannel Pajamas: These are the perfect weight for being able to wear them in SD even though they're flannel. They're really soft and the perfect colors. Since its a set it gives me a lot of options to wear different parts with other things in my pj wardrobe depending on my mood and the weather. I am very impressed by Jeff's pick for pajamas for me :-) I also got a VS Pink Hoodie in white with bright blue that will make a nice addition to my wardrobe for days when its cooler but I don't want to wear a dark colored sweatshirt.

7. Barnes and Noble Nook: This is probably the gift I was the most excited for and could not believe Jeff got it for me! I love being able to read books on my own between all the hard, dry science textbook reading I'm forced to do. Plus I'm never able to finish one book completely without starting into another one and this eReader will be awesome for me in that respect. The books download right to the Nook and are usually a lot cheaper than actually buying the hard copy of them from the store. They were so popular that I don't actually have it yet but it'll be worth the wait.

Other gifts not mentioned already include a Floating Strap for my waterproof digital camera so that if I do happen to drop it when I shouldn't it wont sink to the bottom. I also got a collection of Bath & Body Works lotions for in my purse/traveling and gift cards to Starbucks/Subway/Ulta. Last but not least I got a Gap Sweater in red/orange and a Blackberry Skin in bright green for my phone.
