Christmas Recap

The past two weeks have been wonderful. I slept in, watched tons of TV and movies, and gallavanted all over Spartanburg visiting with people. Here's a very brief recap of my latest adventures.

The weekend I arrived in town, I was able to see the kids that I taught piano and used to babysit. I miss them so much!!! They have grown up so much - I'm pretty sure that Kristen will be taller than me the next time I return home.

The week before Christmas was pretty relaxed - I finished up my Christmas shopping, worked on homework, and caught up on rest.

On Christmas Eve, the family went to see the lights at Roper Mountain before going to the Christmas Eve service at church.

For Christmas, I got a professional-grade blender. You know you're old when you're ecstatic about getting housewares. :) I haven't taken it out of the box yet, but I can't wait to get home and make use of it!! It will come in very handy next week when I get my wisdom teeth out. I'm almost completely packed - and it looks like I will be able to fit everything in my luggage, along with the blender. It'll be tight, but I'm optimistic!

This past week, Ashleigh and I headed down to Rachel's house for a 3 Musketeers sleepover. We have a wonderful time. Getting together with these girls is always a blast! We had a Katherine Heigl marathon and watched "27 Dresses" and "Life as We Know It." I had forgotten how cute the first movie is - I bought it for Ashleigh for Christmas, and I'm thinking I need to go get my own copy!!

Yesterday my parents, Jocelyn, and I saw the movie "Courageous." It was done by Sherwood Pictures, a church located in Albany, Georgia. Their movies just get better and better. I was really impressed by the acting, and the storyline was very good as well. I don't usually cry in movies, but this one definitely caused tears on several occasions.

Tonight my family is headed to a New Year's Eve party, and then I fly out in the morning. I'm not really looking forward to starting school again, but the break has made a huge difference in my mental sanity. As of Monday, I'm on the downhill - only a year and a half left!!
