Holiday Bloggin’

Merry Christmas!!

I know I’ve been gone for a while, but I don’t have much of an excuse besides the fact that finals week and the week before finals is insanely busy. I’ve been out of a camera since August when I lost the charger, but I got a charger for Christmas so now I’m back in business!

So, about today.

I woke up at a decent hour for the first time in over a week, put on my festive socks, and went downstairs to open presents with my parents.

Santa was very good to me! But the highlight was when my mom and I realized that we got each other the same purse as gifts.

Two beautiful Tommy Hilfiger bags. The pink-looking one is mine (I promise it’s red), and I’m a very happy lady!

Some of my other gifts included a beautiful watch, an ebook that I’ve been wanting (And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini; I’ll do a review on it later!), a Michael Kors hat, some fabulous boots, Ray Ban sunglasses, and lots of new pajamas. I guess I was a really good girl this year!

After breakfast I hauled my stuff upstairs and promptly went back to sleep in front of a fireplace. I woke up about every hour to holiday greetings from friends and family. When I finally made it downstairs, mom had almost finished cooking dinner and dad had me help him with a cake. Unfortunately it wasn’t the rum cake that he wanted, but it was a great first attempt!

Then we had people visit.

And then it was time for dinner!

Dessert was rum cake for the adults and a brownie sundae for me. We sat around and watched basketball and some Christmas specials.

And…dad tried on his Christmas present from me.

It fits.

Sorry I’ve been away for so long. I’m gonna try to blog a lot more now that I’ve got time and a camera. Will you accept this warm pile of brownie as an apology?
