Happy almost New Years!

Hello hello!
I cannot believe 2009 has come and gone. It went by so fast! I graduated high school, started college, made new friends, started a blog, mastered the perfect cupcake and brownie, and had many great adventures along the way. I am so very excited for 2010. I truly think things can only get better!

Break has been absolutely wonderful and I have a great time hanging out with all of my wonderful high school friends, the Elles. It's so great seeing all of them, we have not stopped giggling and telling each other stories yet! Tonight we are off to Evanston (where Northwestern is located) to a friend's apartment for dinner and fun! I am excited. It's so terribly chilly here though so I am not sure I will be able to debut my darling new party dress. I may just have to brave the cold! Brownies are in the oven and I just finished a large batch of chocolate covered strawberries so we will be ringing in the New Year with delicious food!

With the New Year comes many new things and resolutions. My biggest goals are to work out more at school and put a small amount of money (a dollar or so) in a little box everytime I do a good deed or do something I am proud of. Hopefully by the end of the school year I will have enough money to buy something special.. can you say a new pair of Tory's? Or a Lilly shift? I say so!

Have a terrific New Year's!
xx, M
PS: I am also going to resolve to blog at least twice a week!

Merry Christmas Eve Y'all!

I am so happy to be home. It is absolutely wonderful to see all of my best friends from high school and have no school work to work on. It's so great to just relax and catch up on all of my mom's DVRed episodes of Martha! I missed watching Martha everydday! Santa comes tonight and I cannot wait to open up all of my gifts!
Merry Christmas!!
xx, M

Oh my gosh, I absolutely cannot wait to get home! I am so terribly sick of studying and taking tests. I think I studied more than I have slept! One more tomorrow, Physics.. which I haven't even studied for yet! But then in the afternoon I fly home! Oh goodness.. I cannot wait!
Talk to y'all once I get home!
xx, M
PS: Thank you so much for all the good luck wishes!

Christmas Christmas Christmas!

Oh my goodness, I cannot wait until Christmas break! Absolutely CANNOT wait! I am so looking forward to being home, seeing all of my friends and family and most importantly not doing any school work! It's going to be so wonderful. One more week to go. Finals week though, so it's going to be pretty challenging. I can make it though! I still cannot decide what to get my mom for Christmas, any ideas? What are y'all getting your parents?
I'll keep you posted with how finals go!
Enjoy your break y'all :)
xx, M
