So, last night was Sue's ornament swap. Can you say amaz-az-ing. Now, I still live with my parents, so, this is one of my favorites during Christmas, because I get these beautiful ornaments for my tree when I finally move out! Here is a picture (it's 4:53 a.m. by the way) of me holding the ornament I picked this year (left). They said it came from Cracker Barrel...since you can't see it that well, it is clear with sparkly red and pink glitter inside (gorgeous). The ornament I got last year is a vintage design (love it long time) with a velvet black ribbon (right). It is actually made out of hot glue (very neat) (side note- the p.j.'s in the background are my NEW Victoria Secret thermal long johns. I LOVE THEM! I was supposed to wait until Christmas Eve to open them, but I told Mom that if I was opening anything earlier than Christmas morning, it was going to be now, so she gave in. Aren't they darling!?) Anyhow, two others have already blogged about this before me, but there are still not words to describe how much fun all of the women of V.R.C have when we get together. I can honestly say, I have grown up in that church, so, I know most of the women fairly well and there has NEVER been a time where I felt I was too young or left out when it comes to the "get-togethers" All of these women are very good role-models and great women after God's own heart! I can't speak highly enough about them!!! I love you guys! You people may be wondering why in the world I am blogging at (now) 5am. This is because after all of the fun and laughter at Sue's, I had a major migraine. So, I was puking when I got home at 10 p.m. and Mom turned the air on in the house, because I was burning up (sorry if everyone is freezing now!) I hate migraines...stinking Adam and Eve! Anyhow, I took 2-Excedrin Migraine and 1-Tylenol Rapid Release and my migraine was gone in an hour (little tip Mrs. Sue...it works miracles!), but it had a Loritab affect on me...so now I am wide awake but thank God my migraine is gone! Anyways, I guess I am going to work on my "work" website...the deadline is Jan. 1st and with the holidays coming...it is crunch time. PEACE & LOVE

This, my friends, is the only plant I can keep alive. If you like plants, but you can't keep them alive, I HIGHLY recommend Bamboo!! Like seriously, I have not watered mine in 8 months...The water is almost evaporated, yet the bamboo is still growing. It's so simple, I just walked into a Chinese restaurant and said, "hey, I want to buy some bamboo". This is how it all started. ha ha. Anyhow, I realized tonight that my mom is the hardest person to shop for. She gives me a Christmas list of 5 things that she wants, then gives me a spending limit, and says that if I get anything that is not on the list, she will not like it. Why do people make gift-giving on Christmas so difficult. Hope it is easier for you guys! I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!! I want a new camera, but I didn't ask for it for Christmas so I am pretty sure I am not getting it. All I know is I have a huge present under the tree almost all tall as me and I don't remember asking for anything that big. I hope its new tires...I don't know if you guys have checked the prices on tires lately, but they are expensive and mine are about to blow up... let's hope not. I went bowling last night with Chad and Bo to celebrate the fact that the semester is over and had a great time...thanks guys, yall are great! So, It is 12 something a.m. and I want to get up kind of early to go shopping tomorrow so I better hit the sack. PEACE & LOVE
I have noticed a few things in the past week so, here they are...so much can happen when you don't see someone for a week. Couples end a relationship and they feel like their life as they know it is over. Guys can be much more dramatic than girls quite often, but you won't hear them admit that. I LOVE Michael Buble (unlike Brett)! I only wish I had money to buy every little kid a Christmas present! Babysitting will wear you out. I also wished I had money to buy clothes, purses, and shoes. I want to go see a play!
Rob Thomas is amazing! Amanda Everhart is great. There is so much to do before Christmas. Can people know they are in love before being able to admit it. Finals are not worth the stress. You should never have o be anything other than yourself for someone to like you. People start drama because they are bored with their lives. People make mistakes and instead of admitting them, they tell a thousand lies to cover it up. Gossip ends in hurt...say to their face. People lose connection, easily. I want to buy Wanted and Dark Knight. Some girls would be way prettier if they only thought they were beautiful themselves.
There are still gentlemen on the face of the earth who open one door for you and before they can let go of it they are already stretching to open the next one...That impresses me. Yes, I have two hands, but I like to know I am respected and taken care of. I am a giver and I have a hard time being a taker. My grandparents are the greatest. I hate to cancel plans at the last minute. Don't ever set your keys on the couch because it will only result in them falling in between the cushions and you looking for them for like an hour, then being 15 minutes late for meeting someone. Americans eat out way too much...especially me! I love my friends! My mom is hilarious. I love lipstick Jungle and Jack Johnson. I am responsibly irresponsible. I can't wait until Costa Rica next year. Looking forward to Starbucks. I need to end this blog, but I don't feel it is long enough and I could say so much more, and you are way bored if you are still reading it by now. ha ha. O yeah, I love music, so my grandparents got me this little mexican shell band...it's amazing and I love it!

Snow...in December....in Alabama. No way! I will say that I am not a huge fan of snow. It is like rain, I like to watch it but not be in it. The weather is crazy. Also, I am so tired of hearing about the auto bail-out plan. Stop making cars that we are not selling and bringing in money to pay for. I don't see these families who have had to go bankrupt during this economy fiasco getting any bail-out plan! Just my opinion. For the first time in my life, I have used a whole tube of chapstick in under 6 months. Somehow, I managed to make a 'C' on my first History test...a 'D' on my second and a 'A' on the last two and I came out with an 'A' in the class!! That made my day. Anyhow, gotta study...

Let me start off by saying I have failed miserably at this whole blogging thing. I have had a very hectic, but amazing passed seven days. Lets start off by telling you something you already know. AMANDA AND MATT ARE PREGNANT AND I HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE TITLE "AUNT KAYLA"...AMAZING!!! Deep breath...I have finals tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., but I am deff. looking forward to it because 1. I think I will make at least a B on one of them and an A on the rest and 2. the semester will be OVER!! Finally an actual break, maybe more blogging time. I still have not registered for classes next semester, so I may not get the classes I want...oh well. I am transferring after my summer semester next year and have no idea where to. I have to admit with all of the busyness, I am still STOKED that it is Christmas time. I love to get present, but most of all, I love to give presents!!! I love the Xmas lights, trees, hats, people standing at Walmart wanting your change, traffic, shoppers, music...I love it all. I cannot wait until Christmas morning when I can open all of my presents!!! I was thinking while I was studying for my exams for 9 hrs. earlier, I would love to do something amazing...like skydive, now! Then I found this picture when Amanda and I were obviously thinking of doing something amazing, but remembered we were broke so we had to act the amazing part.lol. I need sleep so I can be smart and on my game tomorrow, so that's it for now. PEACE.
