December 25

I seriously forgot to take a picture today, I don't know how I managed to do that with everything going on. But tonight, after everyone had left, and our entire house was cleaned up. My dog - who is in dire need of a haircut - sat around, completely exhausted from the craziness of the day. I had a plan for the last day of December Photo Project this year, but I guess that idea is going to have to wait until DPP 2012!

Merry Christmas!

I took so many pictures tonight, so I had a hard time picking one! I chose this one just because I loved the coziness of it.

But I really loved this one when Santa came and the kids came running downstairs!

If you haven't heard about Elf on the Shelf, you need to look it up! My nieces and nephew have one, Vinny Velst is his name, and they always call me with the places he's been every morning. The best one so far is when my niece, Callen, called to say that "Vinny put our panties up where our stockings are supposed to hang! What a naughty Elf!" If you remind them that Vinny is watching, they are little angels! :) Here's him today, in their food cupboard.

Downtown Columbus is actually decorated pretty cool for Christmas. I love all the lights up the trees and down the streets. I took this picture quick today when I was driving by this clock, and I wish it was light outside right now so I could go back and take a different one!

These gorgeous things were at Porridge Papers today when we stopped in. They're on my to-do list for my future house.

Finally got some much needed Red Mango tonight! Their new Classic flavors are amazing, and I'll be going back very soon!

Cookies! Tonight I sat on the couch and ate food and watched movies. Ahh, the joys of Christmas break! :)

I made the drive to Columbus yet again today, and it was one of the prettiest drives. The sun was setting for most of it and as I got closer to home, it turned all pink and orange and looked awesome. So I took a whole bunch of pictures while I was driving. Whoops! :)

Today I stayed in bed for almost the entire day, and I think I'm almost completely cured! And, there's presents under the tree!

I've been battling the stomach flu today. If that didn't suck enough on its own, I also had two finals to take today, a half hour apart from each other, on opposite campuses. So here's my attempt at a quick picture as I took my miserable self to campus to fight through the finals. 

But hey, I'm done. I survived what seemed like the worst semester of my life, and now I get a break. A much needed amazing break - of which I still have to work - but at least no homework or studying to do! But for now, I think I'll go sleep for at least a week.

Playing Catch Up

Just a huge smattering of happenings over the last few weeks from my phone!

December 11

I met my mom and my niece in Omaha today to finish up some Christmas shopping and it was crazy! The stores weren't too terrible, but the hallways, parking lots, and traffic were insane! But we did finish all of my mom's shopping, so that was a plus!

This is how I spent my day. Studying non-stop downtown and preparing for finals next week!

December 9

Tonight, me and my brother made a very quick trip to Columbus and back. This was a store downtown that had the coolest Christmas window display. 

We just got back and I was so close to posting this before midnight! I guess 12:01 will have to do... :)

I took about a hundred pictures today! It was such a pretty snow that I didn't even complain that much about having to walk to class in it and getting completely drenched. This is the start of my walk, and I love that all that nasty snow around the sidewalk is gone now due to the pretty new snow coming down all day!

 Snowy trees

You know how most of the time, you just know when a picture should be in black & white or color. You go between the two, and one just perfectly stands out and the decision is easy? For some reason, that was not the case for this picture. I had a really tough time deciding. So I decided to post both. Thoughts?

Today was a crazy busy day. And today I kept reminding myself to take a picture. But, of course I kept forgetting. And then I got home, and didn't have a picture. Which means I had to go on a search for something! So, I resorted to the always pretty holiday bokeh :) It's a lame picture, but I did cross off almost everything on my to-do list and now all I have to do is to study my butt off for finals next week and it's over!

This is Kenton. I nanny him and his sister, Kalissa. He was extra smiley today and I took some pictures of him while he was all bundled up waiting to pick her up from school. I finally decided on this picture. I'm always swooning over those eyes and that little grin!

Here's a few more of my favorites...

Porches. My future house has to have a porch. I love them. I don't have one at my house in Lincoln, and my parents house doesn't have a huge one, but whenever I go home, I always spend some time sitting out there. Today it was covered in untouched snow, which is another thing I love!

Here's Roxy girl. She spent about 10 minutes jumping through the snow and rolling around. I don't know why, but this year I was just kind of craving snow. It finally did today, which brought on the thousands of complaints about it, which I usually find hilarious.

It's the second day of December and I'm already behind on posting...whoops! But I did take a picture! I went to an Ugly Sweater Party last night full of lots of good food, drinks, and games. It was a good time, and here's a glimpse of the awesome snowman sweater I wore.

It's December! I don't know where this year went, but it's almost over! Today is the first day of December Photo Project, which I'm so excited for! For 2010, I did picture a day for the whole year, and have actually been missing it a little - only a tiny bit though! But now I get to do a short 25 days to get it out of my system because I know I'm not ready for a full year yet!

Tonight I finally had a free night from group projects, homework, and studying. So I sat around and did pretty much nothing all night and it was great! I'm already loving all the DPP photos!
