Christmas Eve's Eve


Ah, it's so nice to be home for the holidays.

I was able to surprise my sister by coming home earlier that expected (... 4 days actually), which also allowed me to see more of my friends from Seattle. In the past few days I've been busy visiting with everybody; baking cookies and singing with Honora, and going to a fondue party amongst other Holiday parties in which I can visit with people I haven't seen in over 4 months. Oh, and GOING TO STARBUCKS. Like, every day.

But, at the same time it is almost a bit weird being back home, seeing my family, driving around, and not needing my RPI ID card to get food. I was talking to one of my close friends from RPI and she was telling me how lonely she felt not being able to see us! (see below) It's easy to miss us.

this is typical, but I'm behind the camera, as always.

Merry Christmas, from us.

Other awesome Christmas related things:
- Getting involved with the blogger family secret Santa, and getting something from Camille but I haven't opened it yet...
-Amy, who in addition to being an awesome blogger friend is my cousin, sent me a package that I also have yet to open...
- My family is having a Holiday Open house tonight that I should probably be helping prepare for... but I'm a lazy college student
- SO MANY SWEETS.

Something unrelated to Christmas:
Similar to Shelby, I have been trying to get together a list of 20 things to do before I turn 20, because, well, that's in 10 months. Any suggestions? Right now my list is very vague. A few of the more refined things are:
- Take a road trip
- See a musical on Broadway
- Grow a mustache (if possible)
- Learn to play guitar
- Get a tattoo
- Start a lookbook.nu account

Well, I'll finalize this list by the first of January. For now though, have a wonderful holiday season and if you have snow, play in it for me!

Christmas! Hooray!

As far as your list goes, it's pretty impressive already so my only suggestion would be to meet a celebrity. That, or audition for Jeopardy.

Yay for being home for Christmas!
And, yes, I would be in Starbucks everyday if I could too. :)
I can't wait to get my blogger secret Santa gift! :) and to see who had me.
Your list is really good! I feel the need to write one now too. Love the road trip and learn to plan the guitar ones.
Have a lovely Christmas. :D

I have been singing "Let It Snow" for the past twenty minutes. IT FEELS SO HOLIDAY-ISH. Except we have no snow like you guys. I am always the one behind the camera, too.

I AM SO EXCITED TO OPEN YOUR PACKAGE. EEEEE.

Not feeling the mustache one. Mustaches are generally creepy. My dad has one. It really is. Haha, but everything else would be awesome.

Merry Christmas Eve Eve.

I need starbucks... and you're lucky that you get snow, I haven't seen snow since 2007, and I wasn't even on the west coast then.
I'm thinking about doing the 20 before 20 thing. I have a year to go though :D


happy christmas eve!

Ugh, I love Starbucks way too much. And you have much more will power than I, as I ripped my package from Lizzie open as soon as I saw it.

I'm going to do a 20 before 21, but I'm waiting to post it until my birthday in April. I am quite excited about it though.

Add go skydiving to your list.
Or add something nature related - go hiking if you've never done that, or try to grow something, etc.
