Well, the holidays are over and school starts up again on monday (blah! i really dread going back it was so nice to have the semester off for naps and movie watching and book reading). But, the holidays this year were spectacular and so much has been going on that I've hardly even had the chance to blog about it. But, you'll be glad to know that I took some pictures to share!
Do you remember the christmas post in which I had this great long list of christmas movies and activities? well, we probably got around to half of those things, maybe. We watched elf at my brother and sister-in-laws annual christmas party which is probably my favorite party of the year because everyone brings food and treats and its so great. especially the ice cream drink my brother makes, which is pretty much what it sounds like and it's the best.
For New Years we had a great time out to dinner with some friends at Sea Salt. It's a great italian restaurant owned by the same people that opened the Paris Bistro. My shrimp pasta was so fabulous, boyf's anchovy and olive pizza wasn't great (a little too salty, but if you love salt then go for it). Then we attended a friends party complete with martinellis and midnight kiss!
This last week my brother and his family have come to visit. It's been so fun, especially to see their little one, Evelyn who is so adorable (seriously, her "pig" sound is the greatest thing).
Now it's back to school and working on my resolutions. I hadn't really thought about resolutions that much because I usually come up with these really lofty, grand resolutions that are probably unattainable. So this year I think that I'll just stick to a few that are things that are necessities, but for my resolution I'll just try and go the extra mile.
-saving up for school (my resolution here will be to save up for at least 4 classes)
-saving up for a laptop (this doesn't need any upgrade because $1100 is a lot of money)
-save up for dog (this will coincide with the next one because dogs are expensive and usually apartments that allow dogs are a little bit more)
-save up for own apartment
-save up for trip (I like to try and go on a trip every year, even if it's just a little one to cali. it's so nice to get away and plan for days of just fun with friends and the boyf.)
-get good grades (I'm getting much better at studying and school in general but I just need to keep it up)
So we'll see how it all goes down.
