Aww. They're just so cute. :)
And now...I am finally on break!!!!!
Everyone just join with me for a moment of enthusiastic rejoicing. After having 10 days off for Thanksgiving, the last thing in the entire world I wanted to do was go back for 10 measly days, take finals, and then come home again. But I decided maybe taking my finals would be a good idea and headed back to NMSU.
Those 10 days honestly felt like the longest of my entire life. Anticipation is really horrible because it makes time drag by. Plus my finals weren't really that hard so I was bored out of my mind. Here's some of what happened.
I took a bunch of selfies, and my hair sort of went crazy. Seriously, where did all this curl come from all of a sudden?
I painted my nails a lot. And then made myself sick off the fumes because the ventilation in my dorm room is not great.
I read a lot.
Some actual studying did happen in the middle of all that. I also went out to lunch with my aunt, uncle, and cousins, who I haven't seen in awhile. It was great to spend time with them! Then I went to dinner with my grandparents. And finally, I took care of finals, packed up, and came home.
Yesterday Rachel and I went to the graduation of a close friend of ours that we've known for eleven years now. And today I reread a book that I used to love when I was about ten.
It was still just as good. :)
And now I'm so glad to be home for an entire month! I'm going to try and get a ton done--hopefully lots of reading, I have an insane idea to try and teach myself to knit (again), and also enjoying Christmas, New Year's, and Chloe's 8th birthday (how did she get so old?!). It's so nice to be home, both with my family and church family. I forget how awesome they all are until I go away for awhile. :)
There will possibly be more updating on this dusty old blog while I'm on break, but I'm not promising anything. At the very least I'll put up my resolutions for 2014 and maybe go over some of my favorite books that I read this year. :)
