A Very Merry Christmas

It feels like an eternity since I've been on here!

So much has happened.

I graduated Cosmetology school
Had a wonderful time with my mom and brother
Had a fun Ugly Christmas Sweater Party (I'll post pics soon, promise)
Shared time with the future husband's family over Christmas
Stopped eating everything in front of me & now trying to work off the um, "winter weight"
Enjoying my free evenings with Ted

I hope everyone had a blessed and fruitful Holiday season. Now on to 2010... Hope the economy will pick up soon and let all of us get our lives back to normal :)


Lack of Postings...

Work has been totally nuts. Haven't even had the time to think of a blog post for the last week or so!!! I don't like it one bit!
Well, my family is due to arrive tonight at 11:30pm. They aren't able to stay through the holidays but it's wonderful to get to see them around Christmas! My Graduation is this Friday. It's so weird. I've been counting down this Graduation for two years now and now that it's here, I'm not as excited as I thought I'd be. It's almost sad that this long chapter is now finished and I have to move on, find a job and probably not talk to most of the girls I spent two years of my life with. It's bitter sweet. I'm very proud of myself for actually finishing. There were plenty of times that I just wanted out but some how, some way I have made it to the bitter end! And that sure does feel good!
We've got lots of fun stuff coming up... I'll keep you posted!


A Loss...

during the holidays seems to affect me more so than any other time of the year. Early this morning, Ted's Grandpa passed away. I hope it was a peaceful pass into heaven! He suffered immensely from emphysema and lung cancer due to smoking his whole life. He was in so much pain and now that pain has been taken away. But it still is hard to imagine life without him. I didn't know him as well as I would have liked but the loss is still difficult and my heart goes out to family and friends who are affected by his loss.
Grandparents are such blessings, aren't they! I feel so blessed to still have my two Grandmothers and one Great-Grandmother. And Ted's two Grandmothers.
Tell your Grandparents that you love them!


i {heart} Holiday Music

Christmas music is in every store, on every station and that's okay with me! I love Chirstmas music. But I especially LOVE Sufjan Stevens version of classics.

Take a listen... It's sure to get you in the Holiday Spirit!

I hope everyone has a peaceful, loving and fruitful Holiday season!
