Looking Forward to Winter Break
Hi friends! TGIF 😀
Yesterday I had my big final. It took almost a full 3 hours to complete. Yes, that’s a long a** time. And yes, my hand was cramping like crazy. Then I had to come home and finish my 6-page treatment plan that is due today. Thank goodness I had already started it and it didn’t take long to finish. Later this afternoon my finals week will be OVER!!! And that means that I can pack for my flight home tomorrow :). YAY!
I may have had a hefty glass of red wine last night to unwind from all of the studying and schoolwork this week. It totally hit the spot. I love Barefoot pinot noir!
I cannot wait to go home. Not only am I super excited for the holidays (which I’m sure you’ve realized from previous posts haha) but I’m also excited for some other things this winter break!
1. Seeing friends that I haven’t seen in a while!
Over break I’ll get to see my friend Rae, whom I haven’t seen since this summer! She is one of my best friends and I miss her dearly. I’ll also get to see another best friend Whitney who I did get to see for a short bit over Thanksgiving, but I cannot wait to hang out with her again! Yay for friends 😀
2. Spending lots of time with Chris!!
I cannot believe that as of yesterday Chris and I have already been engaged for 3 weeks!! Eeeee that’s so crazy and exciting :). Our winter breaks will overlap for 3 weeks! That’s the longest amount of time I will have seen him since this summer. I’m super pumped! And we plan to go to a celebratory dinner for our engagement since the two of us haven’t really gotten to celebrate it alone.
3. Wedding stuff!
So I’ve been asked by people when Chris and I are getting married, and we have no idea yet haha. We do know that it won’t be next year because we both have to finish school. So it will be sometime in 2013. And that means that we have lots of time to plan the wedding. I’m actually glad that we will have a long engagement because that means that we can plan without getting too stressed about it. Plus, that just gives me lots of time to browse pinterest and other sites for pretty ideas! But, over break I do plan to start looking at a few venues with Chris and I may go try on some wedding dresses just to get a feel for what I want :D. Here are a few of the fun things I’ve found on pinterest:
4. Reading for pleasure instead of school!
I’ve mentioned several times before that I’m an avid reader. And I usually read a TON over winter break. I don’t see why this year would be any exception. If you have any good book recommendations please let me know!
5. Spending time with family!
I am really lucky that I have such a great family. And most of them happen to be in Columbus and therefore I’ll get to see them over break! I didn’t get to see all of them over Thanksgiving break so it will be nice to get hang out with them! As I have mentioned, we do Christmas Eve with my mom’s family and I’m really looking forward to that. And this year Chris and I will be going to the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee for a couple of days after Christmas with my dad. That will be a lot of fun! We’ve never been there!
6. My FIRST blogger meet-up with Kristen!!
Kristen also lives in Ohio and she’s not too far from Columbus. We’ve decided to get lunch next week! Ahhh I’m so excited to meet her in person :D.
I hope you all have an amazing Friday!!
What are you looking forward to over the holidays or winter break (if you have one)?
Any book recommendations??
Have you ever had a blogger meet-up?
