(invitation picture to come) Then Saturday I am going home for a luncheon with the family. And then Sunday (my actual bday) I will be at disneyland with two of my favorite ppl, Citlalli and Annalise. Can't wait!!! And I just found the most amazing thing ever, over night delivered parisian macaroons! love it! I may just send some as a gift to myself... we'll see how much my cravings take over.

Thanksgiving Break!

Hello darlings,
Well I just got back from Thanksgiving break and it was quite lovely. My brother came home from college, so we got to hang out and be goofy. After sitting in four hours of traffic for a trip that is usually and hour and a half, I was finally home. The next day I got to sleep in, which I think is what the majority of college students do when they go home for the holidays, then I went to Disneyland with one of my best friends, Citlalli. We celebrated Thanksgiving at my Grandparents house, where I helped with the deviled eggs, and our younger cousins wrote down their christmas lists for our gift exchange. The turkey was delicious, we were missing a few family members, but we get to see them on Christmas eve, so I guess that makes up for it. After dinner we went through the black friday ads to plan our big morning. On Black friday we woke up at 3:45 and were at khols by 4:15, we put my stepdad in line, and we did strategic shopping, then we hit up the gas station, and then Target, we once again placed my step dad in line, and split up to get all our gifts. We came back to the line, dumped our stuff and headed for the in store starbucks to re-fuel, then when we checked out there was an "episode" but it just added excitment to our morning. We then headed to Wal mart, and were out of there by 7, and then it was time to unwind at Barnes and noble. I took an idea from Real Simple magazine, where I got almost everyone on my list books. Then it was time to head home, I started wrapping, and then needed to go to the craft store to get jars for my cocoa mixes. Then I met up with my mom at Bath and Body works to get pretty scented soaps for the holiday season. Then it was time for In'N'Out. When we got home we broke out the Christmas decorations, and turned on the Christmas music. The boys hung the icicles on the house, while mom and I set up the village, and decorated the shelves. Can't wait to go home next weekend, and finish decorating. That night I had dinner with my beautiful friend Annalise, Nana for short. We were out for almost 5hours, just catching up on life, we hadn't seen each other since May, so it was long overdue. Then after I headed to the bowling alley to hang out with my brother, and some friends from high school whom I love very much, Citlalli, Sheraan, Melissa, Valerie, Ariston. and a few significant others. As well I finally got to congratulate Asher on his engagement, so excited!! Then it was off to Sheraan's house for a zombie movie. Then Saturday was spent with my godson, Coby. I can't believe how big he is getting, I love him sooo much! Then we went to the mall, and got to take pictures with santa. After that it was coffee with my best friend in the whole world, Alyssa, and her boyfriend. I miss her, and do not get to see her as often as I would like. Overall a very nice holiday! It ended way too soon. Off to start another week. Hope all of your Thanksgivings were fabulous!

Welcome to the crazy ....

Hello my loves,
Well it would appear that two weeks have escaped me. I would like to catch you all up on my life for the past two weeks. It has been a crazy whirlwind. Homework has been insane, our teachers have been piling on the work because we are going on Thanksgiving break next wednesday. A few exciting things to share. I have been having an amazing time at my internship, getting soo much experience, and having opportunities I couldn't even fathom in my wildest dreams. I am so thankful and grateful, I love what I am doing. Today was the last day of my craziness, I have been pulling all nighters, and running around with my head cut off, but last night was the last night. On a high note, I went and saw the midnight premiere of New Moon. It wasn't quite the best movie I have ever seen, however, it did have its shining moments. Jacob/Taylor was beyond easy on the eyes. My best friend came back to visit his family for Thanksgiving, and we went and picked him up from the airport, and got to spend the night with him, which was fabulous because I have missed him like crazy these past months. Anyways, off to sleep, very excited about the girls' "Thanksgiving" tomorrow. Can't wait for the gathering because are like a mini family, and its nice to have people you can completely be yourself around, and people who know you and still love you. Anyways, pray I don't poison anyone, haha, only joking, I am becoming quite a good cook if I do say so myself.
Here some adorable pictures, of the gorgeous Kate Beckingsale.. I thought that it was appropriate because she is wearing orange which is seasonal, and they are just fun pictures.

Update please!

Hello myloves,
Oh my goodness, it has been quite crazy since last weekend. I haven't been keeping you up to date with everything but these past couple of weeks, my car has been giving me trouble, and I have been switching between my car, and my Grandma's. So this past Thursday my car completely gave out, and I was actually towed from Santa Barbara to Azusa. It was a very long drive, but neither one of us talked to one another. I, of course, being an English major always have a book in my purse, and so I read the whole way home. I got to be home for the weekend, and I went out to dinner with my family, and then I got to hang out with Citlalli and my little brother and I loved it. I recycled a costume, that I have worn twice already, but it was all I had. It was very nice to be home, but now I am back to the grinding stone, and its going to be a rough couple of weeks til Thanksgiving since I have so much homework due in between, that's not so exciting. But here are a few pictures from this weekend.
me and my silly dad
me and Talli!
me and the family
The little bro and I

and last but not least the cutest little boy in the world, my godson, Coby. Oh man do I love this little boy!!!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!! And hopefully I will be back in full swing next week.
