Remember that feeling in college after a really long semester and that first day you're on winter break? Ya, that was me yesterday. I continued to watch more Hallmark movies. Why is it that no matter how many times I watch the cheesy Christmas movies, I cry? I am such a sap. I was also in denial that I am officially done with undergrad classes. Where did the time go? On to student teaching with some amazing third graders in the spring! Today, we technically still have two classes, but we're just eating and telling each other how much love each other (that is a very serious statement). Then I get to go watch my first graders in their Christmas concert - holy cuteness.
So what will I be doing over winter break? Well, I would like to master wrapping that's for sure. Remember these gifts here? This was the first time I ever attempted to make my presents presentable Coincidence the word present is in presentable? I think not. I used to wrap as fast as possible, and my family can vouch for me on this one: they weren't pretty.
Next on this list: get crafty with my mother dearest. We will be working on this lovely project. I may or may not have several wine/champagne bottles from our holiday party.
I will update you on the wrapping and crafting for sure. I have other projects up my sleeve, but I don't quite know when they'll get done. It's my brother K's birthday this weekend and then Boyfriend B's on the 23rd. Then there is that really fun day, Christmas, you know? So life will be a tad busy, and I want to enjoy being home with the ones I love. Maybe I'll just make them all craft with me? That sounds like a great idea if I do say so myself.
Most challenging task of the day: packing the car. Dearest dad, be warned as you will not be pleased when you see how much I'm bringing home. And to answer your question in advance, no I will not wear all of the clothes over break that I'm bringing home, but a girl needs options. Thanks for understanding. You're the best.
Do you have any tips on how to pack lighter? Any signature wrapping up your sleeves?
