In a Holiday Mood

Well I’m back from break, but maybe just as tired as when I left.  Does that every happen to you guys, where you come back less relaxed after a vacation?  And the sucky part was that I had all this work hanging over my head throughout break, so I was never completely at ease and relaxed.  All right, enough of the negativity- I had a great time in New York with my suitemate, did lots of good shopping, and had a very yummy Thanksgiving meal.  I’m also excited about all the things that I bought online that will slowly be arriving in my mailbox- I love getting packages!  I’m finally starting to get something accomplished, starting with writing this post and continuing with decorating my suite for the holidays.  I absolutely love Christmas and I’m one of those people who starts listening to Christmas music the day after Thanksgiving! (Click here to listen to one of my all-time faves- although someone just pointed out to me how creepy the lyrics really are!).  Here’s an outfit that I wore for a holiday dinner- I really love the simple elegance of this long-sleeved dress.  Also, these boots have an interesting story.  When I saw them online, I was desperately in love with them, but I didn’t want to buy them without trying them on because I wasn’t sure if they would suit my foot (I don’t like shoes that make my feet look any larger than they are- I wear a size 9 or 10).  However, when I looked to see if they were in stock in a store near me, it said that they weren’t available in any store within 50 miles of me.  Needless to say, I was really bummed (when I want something, I get really obsessed- it’s a very bad habit).  I ended up going to Target that weekend anyway because I need to pick up some stuff and decided to check the shoe section, and get this- they had only one pair of these boots and they were in my size!  I couldn’t believe it!  So that’s my little tale of how the shopping gods smiled down upon me =)

I’m finally starting to catch up!  I wore this outfit when we had a few unseasonably warm days in CT.

Right now, I’m on Thanksgiving break.  It is so nice not to have any class at all this week.  However, as with most breaks, I feel like I don’t have enough time to do all the things I want to do!  Especially since I have a lot of homework this break (booo) that I really have to get done.  I’ve been avoiding it for the past couple of days and shopping instead (which my bank account will not thank me for!).  I’m hoping to at least get some work done tomorrow, then I’m looking forward to cooking and eating and relaxing on Thanksgiving day.  What do you guys have planned for Thanksgiving?

So sorry for the lack of updates! I’ve been traveling for the past couple days and haven’t had my head on straight!  Just wanted to share this song I just discovered with you guys, and I hope to get a real post up/reply to all of your lovely comments in the next couple of days.  Let me know what you think about the song!
