A wee little update

What have I been up to the past few weeks?
Oh, ya know. Just excelling academically.
Also the roommates and I have been working on lifting and shaping our rears via the Brazil Butt Lift program. It was going well up until my boyfriend got me sick with a cold, which I'm expecting to put me out of commission for at least another week.
This explains why I have no cute pictures of the two of us, because neither of us have been particularly attractive lately. We are adorably sick and unattractive together.
Been staying up late and having long, insightful talks about the world with the people I love the most.
Annnnd continuing my quest for details to complete my perfect future wedding. Am I engaged? No. No, Okay? No I'm not. But it never hurt anybody to plan ahead, especially since my apartment managers thought it would be cute to block Pinterest, thus hindering my marriage planning significantly. It's a problem.

Tis the season..

I better do this now before I have to go back to school and again have NO time.
Winter break has been superb.
I got to lounge around and be absolutely useless. This is something I have really been missing since after Thanksgiving.
We spent the weekend immediately after school got out at my parents' house. And by 'we,' I mean Ryan and I. We went indoor skydiving with the fam (pics later). Pretty fun, but also wildly more expensive than the experience worth, in my opinion. Also we spent at least an hour in Brookstone trying out this massage chair. Hey, after finals week, we earned it.
Tuesday, we drove 12 hours to El Paso for 5 days of Christmas festivities. It was wonderful.
We went Christmas shopping, where our time was used very efficiently..

This is a habit of mine.
Ryan insisted on buying these suitcoats for himself. I may insist on using them for kindling.
We played Just Dance. I lost..
We ate. We ate a TON. We ate stuff like this
I played White Elephant for the first and second time!
I won a baby!! Ha. Just kidding. Seriously though


His family was so generous in including me in their celebration of the birth of our Savior and I am so beyond grateful. I had an amazing time!!
We drove to Colorado for 3 days to catch up with my dear friends, during which we ate. Watched Season 1 of Smallville. Went to Zoolights.
fishie :)

Did more Christmas shopping.
Oh yeah, about that..
Hey, in my defense, I had to have the sweats on that mannequin and they were the only pair of their kind.
Oh, and we ate.
This is when we got $35 worth of Philly Cheesesteaks and wings for only $10. The meal was fairly average and frankly overpriced if we hadn't had a discount, but we still had leftovers to munch on for the ride home.
Now we're back in Utah celebrating the Christmas that I missed with my family and relishing the last few hours of break before we return to hectic college life. But I can't say I'm not looking forward to reuniting with my roommates. I really miss them.

By the way, I could really go for some snow.
