Merry Christmas!

I know I'm a day late on this, but the thought still counts. This Christmas was a weird one considering my dad and brothers were out of town. But it was still a good one! My favorite present that I got was Brad Paisley, Scotty McCreery, and The Band Perry floor seat concert tickets for me and Kendall. I cannot wait until March 2nd <3. We as usual, went to my grandmother's. Ate some good food, opened presents, and played some games. We got home late around 9, and my dad and brothers were finally home after 16 straight unplanned hours of driving. They then opened a few of their gifts, and we played games altogether until 1 am. I love Christmas, but still continue to miss the excitement of it when I was little. Now that it is the day after Christmas, I am sad :( This is honestly probably the worst day of the year. And I sadly only have 6 more days off from school. Well we are babysitting again tonight, and will probably play more games. I hope everyone enjoys the rest of the holidays with their families (:

Merry Christmas Eve and Happy Birthday To Me :)

I have had such a wonderful birthday :) It began bright and early at 10 am with breakfast at IHOP. After, my mom and I picked up a few things for the baby, went to Walgreens, got birthday cupcakes at Bubblecake, took a trip to Target, Walmart, and the mall (again), had dinner at Olive Garden, got a free birthday drink from Starbucks, and came home and watched the Cowboys game. That didn't have a very happy ending though. I am so blessed with all of my family and friends, and today made me realize that. I cannot believe that I am now 16 years old. With it being Christmas time, I realllly can't help but wish i was three years old again. Well I hope that everyone has had a good of a day as I have. I have been wrapping presents for almost 2 hours, and still have more to go. Oddly enough, I love it. <3

Merry Christmas Eve Eve!

Today has been soo much fun! But I have to say, I am worn out after almost 10 hours. I left my house with my mom at 1:00 and went to pick up Kendall. We went out to lunch at Rancho Viejo. Mmm mexican. After we took a little trip to Bath and Body Works. Always a fun time. We then headed to the theatre at Valley View to see The Descendants. Which by the way, is a fantastic movie that I do recommend. Next, was the mall. The traffic was awful, but it was not as crowded as i expected. I tried on some jeans, picked out a few more things for Christmas, then went to Victoria's Secret and loaded up on more lotion, body wash, and sprays. I honestly have enough of that stuff to last me the rest of my life. We left the mall, took Kendall home, and then headed to Walmart. I was there for about 2 hours, did a few more errands, and here we are. It's days like these that really make me appreciate the holiday season. I have another big day ahead of me tomorrow for my birthday, and need my sleep. I hope everyone has a good Christmas Eve :)

Birthday Countdown: just a little over an hour :)

Christmas Party

Yesterday I attended my only Christmas party of the season. I guess I had a decent time, but not really. Just havin my reasons. But there was super good food. Which made me super duper sick. It was nice to have a sleepover and catch up with everyone. I am also glad to brag that me and Tayllar pulled an all nighter. That lack of sleep is starting to catch up with me now. Highlights of my night include:
  • My little Asian breaking out of her shell
  • I got completely shanked
  • And yeah that's just about it

It really wasn't as bad as I make it out to be, I had fun. I just had big expectations for some reason. Oh well, I will live. And just for fun, this could be my fave (out of 4) pics of the night.

Well my dad and brothers just recently left to head to Dallas. It's just me and my mom for the next 5 days. It will be so weird having a birthday and Christmas without them here.
Anyways, I'm sitting here watching Dateline, exhausted from last night. My only plans for the day is wrapping presents. I'll take what I can get.

Birthday Countdown: 2 days :)

The I Can't Think of A Title Title

This post doesn't have to do with anything specific, just what I've been up to the past two days. Yesterday I had my birthday dinner with friends at Buffalo Wild Wings. This is a 4 year and running tradition :) I have to say, I was very lucky to collect $35 dollars to Starbucks because I am super duper addicted. After, I came home, helped my mom with the baby, and watched Rudolph maybe 5 times. I love when she's here.
Today I just ran a couple of errands, got a gift for the Christmas party I am going to tomorrow, and was supposed to clean my disaster of a room. I never got around to that part. I don't have much to write about, but I am just trying to stay on track with blogging and make sure I do it. Wellll, until later all my followers. I will probably be back Thursday to talk about the Christmas party and all that jazz.
P.S. Happy Hanukkah!

Birthday Countdown: 4 days :)

Today I finally got to see the movie New Years Eve. For some reason I have been really excited for this, I think maybe because Ashton Kutcher and Zac Efron are in the same movie. (Who doesn't love that) I have to say, it was very cute and I do recommend seeing it. It really made me wish I had a life as exciting as that.

Moving on. After the movie, I went to the mall, and could not have picked a better time than Sunday night. It was a nice break from all the crowds that come with holiday shopping. In fact, the last time I was at the mall was Black Friday. That was a mess. I didn't get much, just some underwear from American Eagle (which by the way I think I could write a whole post on how much I hate looking for underwear in public) and Sweatpants/ Jacket from Victoria's Secret which I won't get until Christmas. Speaking of shopping and Christmas together, my gifts have become way less exciting because I know basically all of what I'm getting. Oh what I would give to be 5 years old. Anyways, I'm about to go watch Kourtney and Kim Take New York (always need some Kardashian love) and go to bed. My birthday dinner is tomorrow, can't wait :)

Birthday Countdown: 6 days :)

One Of Those Days

Today has been "one of those days." Often times I will use this in a negative way, but today was very nice. By "one of those days" I mean greatness. Slept in until 12:45, played on the computer, caught up on Glee (love!) ate some pizza, snuggled and enjoyed The Notebook (which never gets old), and here I am. I wish I could say I was more productive with my day, but really I don't. It really was the perfect way to spend my first day off. I don't have much for you today, so I leave you with it played out in pictures.

Birthday Countdown: 7 days :)

Winter Break!

Finally! The best Christmas present ever. One thing you must know about me, is that i absolutely cannot stand school. Just sayin, you will probably be hearing about this a lot. Today I actually only went to school for one class. After that I was able to come home and take a nice 3 hour nap. Just what I love. I am getting ready to go get my eyebrows done (yay.) , out to the mall, and then to dinner with Mehgan and Sandy! This is just the first day of break, and I have so many things planned within this week. Going to see New Year's Eve (hopefully), birthday dinner Monday night, party Wednesday, Christmas shopping and festivities, my birthday, and finally, CHRISTMAS. I am so excited for this next week and very happy to be out of school. Christmas time is the best time of the year, and I can't wait to spend the next two weeks with friends and family. Happy Friday!

Birthday Countdown: 8 days :)

I'm Baaaaack

Lately I've been getting really interested in the blogging world. And while I'm not nearly as good or popular as the blogs I like to read, maybe this will be some fun. And I promise to stay committed this time, just for all you loyal followers out there ;) I would also like to make a mini shout out/ thank you to my good friend Tayllar for convincing me to get back into blogging.
Anyways, what I have been up to lately:
  • Stressing with school; thank the lord break starts tomorrow!
  • Getting ready for Christmas
  • Hating that it's spring weather in the middle of December
  • Counting down the days until my birthday ( 9 by the way)
  • Stressing
  • Stressing
  • And more stressing
  • ... Maybe this blog will be good for me :)
Currently I am lying here with a migraine, watching Spongebob Christmas, and then Elf :) I do whatever i want during Christmas time. Basically I just wanted to make my (maybe 3rd) grand entrance back into the blogging life. Now that I have sucessfully done that, I am going to finish enjoying my night, and attempt to get rid of this headache. Night night <3
