Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm so thankful for my family. Most people go to movies or go bowling on Thanksgiving but our family has a new tradition as of last year where we all dress up like pilgrims and indians for the Thanksgiving feast. I know, who would do something so strange? We didn't have a costume for my dad so we dressed him up as the turkey! I love that my family is so weird and does stuff like this. It was one of the best Thanksgivings I can remember.

Ah, high school

I feel really old now that I've been out of high school for about a year and a half. I know, imagine what it'll be like in 10 years! I was looking through some pictures on my lap top and I found this one this morning. It was from senior sluff day up at Aspen Grove. I really can't even tell you what was going on but it made me laugh so hard! It's so great to have such good memories!

Movie weekend

Friday morning at 12:02 AM

I really loved this movie! I was one of the late ones to read the book and I was sure I would hate it but ended up finishing it in like 3 days or something like that. I was nervous, like most, to see the movie. I was hoping they wouldn't ruin the book and thankfully it didn't! If anyone wants to go see it, give me a call. I'll totally go with you!

My favorite: Carlisle... mmmmm.... :)
Friday night 8:45 PM

Screw the "just okay" reviews. This movie ROCKED! The opening scene was a high speed chase involving a bunch of Mercedes and an Aston Martin... enough said! I love James Bond!

Saturday 9:15 PM

This is the 2nd time I've seen it and I'll admit, it wasn't as good as the first time I saw it. Keep in mind, it could be because I waited for 5 hours to see it the first time so I was so bored anything would entertain. I still really liked it though. RIP Heath. No one could possibly have played the role better.

Finals are upon us

There's one word that will send every college student into a mad frenzy: finals. Use it with caution, for you may not be able to handle the reaction. I figure if I don't sleep for the rest of the semester, I'll be able to pass all my classes with A's. As if the semester didn't spread us all thin enough, we have one grueling week of studying until the wee hours of the morning, attempting to conjure up every minor detail that our professors may've mentioned over the course of the previous four months. Times this stress by 4 or more, depending on how many classes you're taking, and you have finals week. The silver lining however, is that after months of trying to grasp the concept of DNA replication, Shakespeare, or whatever our chosen careers require us to do, we have a blissful 3 weeks of December to enjoy, completely college-free. So endure well my friends and then snuggle up with a good book (because you know you'll have no time to read once spring semester starts) and enjoy the holidays.

stylin' oldies

L to R Aunt Vicky, Uncle Jim, Mom
Thank goodness for! My cousin Bret posted this on our family's website and truly it's a keeper. The jeep was my uncle's pride and joy in high school. Weren't the 60's so awesome?!
