Christmas came and went in a blur. More than previous years, I was aware of the preparation for it. I wrapped my fair share of presents -- namely all of them except my own and ones from grandparents -- and am glad to give that a rest. I just had to do a few more last night since close friends and I had our gift exchange today and now I can be DONE...until I wrap my roommates' gifts. Oh my goodness, I can't wait to give them theirs.
The pictured orange rolls are divine and a Christmas morning tradition.
The other picture shows off various gifts from my stocking including gingerbread marshmallows, green nail polish, Revlon lip butter in Tutti Fruitti, stickers, two scarves, a pretty handmade bracelet and iTunes gift cards.
My largest gift otherwise was a John Green box set. I realized it's not signed because I sent my mom the wrong link. Oh well. Now I shall make it my mission to meet John Green himself and have said copies autographed in person. That experience is much cooler. I mean, I met Garrison Keillor this fall at a bookstore a two minute walk from campus and he signed a book for my mom. That was pretty darn cool.
My Secret Santa Blogger Family ornament swap was from Maggie. She got me the most adorable dinosaur and made a great Christmas mix cd. Thank you again! I really love it.
Talk to you again tomorrow!
Days until the new year: 3
