so did anybody get (or give) anything really great? here were my top 11 (since 10 is never enough) favorite gifts that i received:
*1. a really soft white bath robe *2. a blanket that i secretly loved for a long time- my mom saw it and KNEW that i would love it, so she got it for us- it has trees on it! little green trees! i will show you later... *3. a waffle iron. so so great. *4. neil young cd's *5. an iPod shuffle, which i havent opened yet because i want to get a nano instead- the wait is KILLING me though! *6. fondue! *7. domino magazine- the current issue is REALLY GOOD! or at least i think it is! *8. camera memory card (who can have too many of these? i always need more!) *9. a burt's bee's starter kit!!! so so soooo wonderful. *10. really awesome white cozy mittens *11- a block of colby cheese and some real maple syrup from my grandpa's "woman friend"- dont laugh! i'm from wisconsin! this was an awesome gift :)
what are you doing for new years eve? this is my first new years eve that i will actually get to go out- i missed the cut off date by just a few weeks last year! my birthday is january 27, just a little too late for bar hopping on new years. but now i'm 21 so it will be good. AND our friends brian and lindsay are coming from michigan, and lindsay turns 21 on december 29 (woah, thats today!) so i KNOW she'll want to go out. i am thinking about making spaghetti for everybody so we all have a full stomach to soak up all that beer (and champagne- my favorite!)
this morning i decided to get up at 4:30 and do the dishes. sounds crazy- but joe had to get up for work anyway, and i always see him off to work, so why not? after he left i listened to some neil young and ate some candy. now i am blogging. it's 5:38- i should go back to bed now.
take care, i will be making my blog rounds today and tomorrow, i miss you guys- everyone has been on break forever it seems!
(oh yeah- this is me eating a waffle made with our new waffle iron. topped with strawberries and fresh maple syrup and a side of bacon. drinking coffee and bailey's)

how is everybody doing? i hope none of you are too stressed from the holidays coming up. i am happy to say that this christmas season has been much less stressful than last christmas. last year i think i just had way too much going on, this year i'm a little more carefree. right now i am thinking that sending christmas cards might not happen, and i am okay with that. i would like to send them, but if it doesnt happen, it doesnt happen.
i have a few new things that i have made over the past couple of days. 2 journals and a couple of moleskines. tomorrow is a day of paper cutting, folding and creasing, followed by packaging lots of orders and a walk to the post office. oooh yeah, and grocery shopping (since i have put it off for over a week!) yikes- tonight i had a piece of toast with jam for dinner- that's literally all that is left! so i HAVE to go shopping tomorrow, yuck. i might go to this boutique called polly annas if i find time because i have a gift card. oh dang it i have to make a custom journal for somebody too. there is a lot to do, but i have a few days off from my restaurant job so if i dont finish tomorrow, no big deal. i am actually thankful that i have so much to do- i know so many people who are so bored with life because they dont have anything to pass time besides housework and watching television. those of you who know me know about my animosity towards watching television on a regular basis. anyway...
coptic bound journal, illustrated with black india ink. "plants"....okay, so i have had a lot of "plants" journals, i know.
everything above is in my etsy shop right now. i am trying to keep it stocked for the holiday season, although it's almost over.
okay i'm tired. good night, friends.

i dont really like snow all that much. i had to dig my car out of the apartment parking lot with a snow scraper since i dont have a shovel. hmph.
at least the pine trees look nice.
5 things that i'm loving today:
this beautiful photo of a farm
this pine box
yes, those are my current swoons. it was hard to narrow my list down- joe says that i want everything. not true. i just want everything that's cute and that i dont have to go to the store to get.
have a great friday night!
