A lazy day, is the perfect day.

I used to consider a “perfect” day as one that involved constant activity or some sort of new adventure.  Hah, I’m much wiser now. It’s official, a “perfect” day in my world is one that involves pure laziness: sweat pants, good movies,  a little (or a lot) junk food., little-to-no movement for hours at a time…  Also, (since I am apparently dependent on people), I can’t enjoy these lazy days alone –so it’s always nice when people I love join me.

I think I’ve learned to love these days so much because I don’t really get very many of them while I’m in school. Sometimes it’s nice to just sit and turn my brain off, know what I mean?  Of course you do, because deep down inside your perfect day, is also a lazy day!! Just admit it.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve probably enjoyed way too many lazy days for my own good.  I am sure all this laziness will come back to bite me in the tush once I go back to reality on Jan 4. That’s alright though, I plan on enjoying the few days of freedom that I have left!

Christmas Cheer

I don’t usually talk about things that are too personal on my blog, but for some reason today I feel the need to let it out.  I know that it’s the holiday season and I should be feeling all happy and cheery, but I’m not. At least today I am not.  There’s some family “drama” (I guess that’s what I would call it) happening and things around home just aren’t the same this Christmas season. Unfortunately there’s not much I can do about it, but I think it would help if I could just bounce out of my funk and put on a happy face for the fam.

I think I was doing alright until today, when I found out that my bestest has been upset with me for three weeks, and she just now decided to share that with me. Although she told me she’s upset with me, she also mentioned that she wouldn’t be ready to discuss it for a few days.  Then why did she tell me now?  Why didn’t she tell me three weeks ago, or better yet why didn’t she just wait to tell me until she was ready to discuss?  I am now waiting patiently….  I love her to death and of course I know that this will not ruin a friendship of 22 years, but I am anxious and ready to talk everything out.

If you put the family and friend issues together, you get me in a funky mood.  I know that it will all blow over, it’s just a matter of time and patience…and Christmas cheer!!

So let’s change the subject to Christmas, shall we? Yes, let’s talk about my all time FAVORITE Christmas song:

I don’t want a lot for Christmas

There’s just one thing I need

I don’t care about the presents

Underneath the Christmas tree

I just want you for my own

More than you could ever know

Make my wish come true

All I want for Christmas is…


I don’t want a lot for Christmas

There’s just one thing I need

I don’t care about the presents

Underneath the Christmas tree

I don’t need to hang my stocking

There upon the fireplace

Santa Claus won’t make me happy

With a toy on Christmas day

I just want you for my own

More than you could ever know

Make my wish come true

All I want for Christmas is you

You baby

I won’t ask for much this Christmas

I don’t even wish for snow

I’m just gonna keep on waiting

Underneath the mistletoe

I won’t make a list and send it

To the North Pole for Saint Nick

I won’t even stay awake to

Hear those magic reindeers click

‘Cause I just want you here tonight

Holding on to me so tight

What more can I do

Baby all I want for Christmas is you

Ooh baby

All the lights are shining

So brightly everywhere

And the sound of children’s

Laughter fills the air

And everyone is singing

I hear those sleigh bells ringing

Santa won’t you bring me the one I really need

Won’t you please bring my baby to me…

Oh I don’t want a lot for Christmas

This is all I’m asking for

I just want to see my baby

Standing right outside my door

Oh I just want you for my own

More than you could ever know

Make my wish come true

Baby all I want for Christmas is…


All I want for Christmas is you… baby (repeat and fade)

Yes, my all time favorite Christmas song is,  All I Want for Christmas by Mariah Carey.  How could anyone not love this song?  On our road trip to NJ, I made Mina listen to the song many, many times.  Not only did he listen to it…he also sang to it! Put our voices together and we do a pretty good Mariah, if I may say so myself.  Do me a favor and go listen to it, right now:

…don’t forget to sing along!!!

The past month of my life has been insane. I am SO glad it’s over and I can honestly say that life is nearly back to normal!

Here’s a brief update:

1. Moved to Ohio!
-We survived our move! It wasn’t as painful as I thought it would be and      thanks to some awesome friends we were able to get everything into our place in nearly once piece.

2. Unpacked everything
– I am proud to say that ALL boxes were unpacked within two days of moving- in.  That must be some sort of world record.  We LOVE our place and although there are a few things I would still like to get for it, our place is perfect.

3. Started summer classed =(
– So, I am taking two summer classes: Physiology and Microbiology.  Physiology is honestly kicking me in the butt,  it’s a sprint course with 2 exams a week.  I am only 2.5 weeks away from being done with that class and I cannot wait.  Micro isn’t so bad, but I honestly haven’t spent more than an hour, outside of class, on the material.  I am sure that will come back and bite me in the ass soon enough.

4. Saw Sarah and family
– Sarah and family came into town last weekend and we had an excellent time! We went to an art festival at Easton and just hung out! We learned that the car ride from their home to ours is less than an hour and fifteen minutes – this can only mean one thing…we will be seeing each other  A LOT! =D

5. Spent 4th of July with family
– Both my parents and my in-laws came into town to spend the fourth of July with us! Thankfully, the weekend went smoothly!! We ate, drank, and saw fireworks…what more could I ask for really?

At the place I will always call home.

Before this weekend I had been missing my family SO much.  It had been 5 months since we had seen each other, which is actually a pretty long time for us, so this trip was much needed! So far it’s been an fantastic weekend:

– Mani/Pedi (Thank you Mommy)

– Caught up on all the latest family gossip

– Made ribs for the first time – they turned out EXCELLENT.

– Caught up on missed episodes of Grey’s Anatomy

– A little bit of shopping (Thank you again Mommy)

– Walked around the lake in front of the house 3 times = 6 MILES!!!

– Ate delicious mango’s for the first time in long time

– Laughed really, really hard at Samantha.  The usual.

– Discussed the plural of moose (mooses or moose, final descicion) &  the difference between itch and scratch for like 4 hours.
