Got to go back, back to school again!

Christmas Break is over and it's back to school. The worst part of breaks are the packing and unpacking! I had a lot of stuff to bring back because I brought pretty much everything but the kitchen sink with me, so A LOT came back with me.

It took me 3 hours to get unloaded and organized! However, I am EXTREMELY organized at the moment!!

New Year's Resolution

My New Year's Resolution is this:  RUN A 5K and TONE UP!!

As we begin the New Year, everyone makes New Year's Resolutions! Well considering how many people say "lose weight", I didn't want to be like other people. I personally would love to shed a few pounds, however, I prefer to think of it as "toning up". Instead of saying, "exercise # times a week",  my goal is to be able to run a 5K. Working out is hard when you do not have someone to motivate you but running is something that can kill two birds with one stone and can be done without having a work out buddy, but it would be nice to have one. By preparing for a 5K, I will be able to exercise and tone up. I have tried setting a certain number of times to go to the gym in a week, but it always ends up not happening with the abundance of school work. I would love to go at a certain time every day, but I am also in a Sorority which takes up a lot of my time. I do plan to try to go at a certain time each day that way there is some consistency in my exercise.

I'd love to see everyone else's resolutions? What are some of the craziest ones you have heard?

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

A little late, but we finally got a White Christmas. The first time since I can remember. My father told me the last time it was close was when there was a blizzard in 1993. Considering I was only 3 years old, I do not remember it. I will ALWAYS remember my 1st White Christmas that I spent with my family!

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Christmas is my favorite time of the year! It it is the time where people are the happiest and everyone is smiling. Christmas for me means spending time with family. Although the presents are fun, family is the most important part of Christmas. For me, I feel that I have the greatest family ever. Although we have our struggles, no matter what, we are always there for each other!

When I think of the word Christmas, many thoughts come into my head. I think about traditions. My family has done the same thing for many years and I would not have done it any other way. Christmas Eve we always do Christmas with my mother's side. We go to my grandparents house, open presents, then go look at Christmas lights. After we look at Christmas lights, we take my grandparents back then go home. My sister and I finish up last minute wrapping and my parents finish wrapping stuff as well. My sister and I lay out Cookies(White Fudge Oreos), Christmas Tree Cakes, Cheese (When you leave Santa cheese, you get the good presents!) We also leave out 7 Up, Eggnog, and a sweet letter to Santa! We also set the table for Christmas Morning Breakfast! After setting that out, my sister and I each open one present and then go to sleep so that Santa will come!

Christmas Morning-We wake up and open all of our presents from Santa and then watch my parents open theirs! About the time they finish opening their presents my Nanny, Papa, and Uncle all come out to enjoy the best breakfast ever: BREAKFAST CASSEROLE! We then show our presents to my Grandparents and then EVERYONE takes naps.
Christmas Afternoon-We cook and wrap more presents to prepare for Christmas with my Father's side of the family.

I have always had respect for my family, this Christmas I realized how lucky I am to have the family that I have and became so much more appreciative of them!
