it's so fluffy!

I didn't get a pillow pet for Christmas.  Not that I asked for one, but everyone else did.  They are fluffly.

Christmas was a perfect lazy day with the fam.  I have to admit, I enjoyed having Christmas morning without a bunch of little kids.  I love having them around and I'm so glad we had a full house the rest of the week, but sometimes the peace and quiet rocks my world.  It's been a fun break, but I need to start getting ready for school next week.  Teacher's think they're being nice when they give you homework.
Mom's here, which I love, but she's got to leave tomorrow to see my new nephew!  What a doll.

Sorry for my last dramatic post.  Here's the quick version.  Last Tuesday night my car was broken into.  They took my purse which basically only had my wallet--driver's license and credit card--in it.  I surprised myself because I never really freaked out.  I cried once, but it was because I felt violated.  For a few days (actually, still), I was afraid to go out at night by myself and I'm a bit distrusting of people who are probably perfectly nice.  The hardest part for me was not having a license.  Or car, I guess.  I finally got my window fixed, a new wallet, a new license, and a new card, so I am good to go.

News.  I bought my first Christmas tree!  I've been way too excited for college lately (even though I still need to be accepted...) and everytime I go into a store I have visions of what my apartment will look like.  Seriously, Pier 1 is the worst.  I've been resisting buying everything I see because I have no where to store it, but I saw this little white tree at Target for four dollars so I snatched some ornaments and beads and I'm set for next year.  I'm hoping my favorite Kar Kar Pants and I can live together cause our home would be bomb.

I thought I'd post some reviews on some great Christmas presents I got.
- MacBook Air: 64GB Flash memory, light as a feather, and super fast.  It pretty much rocks.  No CD drive, and not very many other ports, but I'm feeling like this will be just fine as soon as I get an external drive.  Also, just found out that you can buy Photoshop online and download it, so that helps too.
- Crocodile Chia Pet: Perfect.  It just needs to sprout soon.  Apparently the seeds (not sprouts) are good for you.  They look nasty.  Buy vitamins.  It came with a free deck of Chia Pet cards.  That might be my favorite part of Christmas.
- Hair Biscuit Solid Shampoo from One Bath and Body.  I thought it might dry out my hair, but it's amazing!  You rub the bar over your hair a few times and it lathers up so nice.  I got a bath fizzer too, but have yet to try it.  For real though, try it.
- Mustache Bandages.  I know.  I almost cut myself on purpose just to use one.
- Russian Language Map:  I'm learning my alphabet!
- Everything else.  People were so nice this year.  I didn't really ask for anything this year.  I got everything I needed and way more than I ever wanted.

Favorite presents I gave:
- Everything.  I rock.
- Mustache frames & pictures
- Flashing Christmas light earrings
- a DI trip
- Pei Wei
- snazzy crafts
- love:)
