Ahhhh, Food.

So we have this new tradition on New Year's Eve to go to Olive Garden for dinner.  I took pictures of my food, LOL.

There's my grilled shrimp Caprese.  It's, like, my favorite Olive Garden meal.

And there are the little desserts my mom and I got.  Hers is the one on the right, and it's a tiramisu one.  Mine is the one on the left, and it was CHOCOLATE.

Last night, KJ (one of the commenters on here and one of my RL good friends) slept over.  We watched Monte Carlo-awesome movie, BTW-and Letters to Juliet.  That's, like, our movie to watch together.  I absolutely adore it.  Here's my favorite line:

Green With Envy

Apparently I'm not such a bad graphics maker after all, LOL.  BTW, my last name is supposed to be after my first but no way am I putting that out on the Internet for the world to see. *rolls eyes* So that's why my short story's cover looks a little unbalanced down there.  But is the cover intriguing, or a complete disaster?

So, this is going to be the place to brag about all those terrific gifts you got.  I just have one rule: if you got an iPad, don't mention it because it'll make me very depressed, LOL.

I got...
a ton of books (duh!), including a Jane Austen treasury
a flat-iron
a magnetic bulletin board
Barnes & Noble giftcard
a new cell phone with a full QWERTY keyboard.  Best Christmas gift ever.  It's going to make texting so much easier.  I have to wait to activate it until my dad's minutes expire (he's getting my old cell phone), but I'm going to have a poll up soon about what y'all think I should get as my ringtone. ;)

~*~Night Owl~*~

Yup, I'm just a lil' old night owl, still awake at 12:40 CT.  But I'm getting excited for Christmas. *rolls eyes* Especially since my mom let me open the present from my BFFE that arrived in the mail today.  She got me earrings!  And not dangly ones, either, so I can wear them when my six weeks are up! :-D YOU ARE AWESOME, KELLY.  I only had two other pairs of earrings I could wear until it's been six months.

Oh, Christmas Tree!

I decided to show off my family's Christmas tree and some of the various ornaments. (Also, I added a picture of my earrings to the last post.)

So that's the tree!  With the small multitude of presents underneath, my Rebecca doll (my mom wanted one of my AG dolls downstairs in their Christmas or Hanukkah outfit), and three Christmas-dressed Build-a-Bears.

There's the star!  We used to have an angel, but it kind of...fell apart, LOL, so now we use a star.  After all, it was a star that led the Magi to the baby Jesus.

My lovely Eiffel Tower ornament.  Yes, I am obsessed with France. *rolls eyes*

That's from our trip to NYC in 2008.  I love the colors of that ornament.

I am proud to say I'm a shopaholic!

Those are my three Christmas bears!  Alisa the Happy Hugs Teddy, Polaris the Polar Bear, and Chrysanthemum the Autumn Hugs Bear.

And, one of my favorite ornaments on the tree, our little glass nativity scene.

Happy Birthday to my Lord and Savior!

~~The Mall~~

Morning, y'all.  I had a long, tiring day yesterday, so I waited to blog until this morning.  We left at about nine and didn't get home until four, so I was just pooped.  I got...two shirts at Aeropostale, a necklace at Delia*s, lotion and fragrance at Bath & Body Works (none of the lip glosses appealed to me, which is tres sad :(), a couple stuffed animals, and some awesome boots at Payless Shoe Source.  I didn't find a lot of stuff I wanted, but I had lots of fun.

Oh, and yeah, my ears are pierced.  It wasn't too painful.  It felt like a slightly worse feeling than when I had taken off my clip-on earrings after wearing them for awhile.  Or maybe like falling down and scraping my knee.  They hurt afterward for a bit, but not too bad.  If you go on the Claire's website and check out the ear piercing section, you can click on a link and see their earring options.  I got the crystal tanzanite daisies.  I wanted the other flowers or my birthstone, but they were too expensive.  Crazy how expensive earrings can be.

In other news, we got SNOW last night!  I came down to the landing and happened to glance out my window and my face literally looked like this :O.  I didn't know we were going to get snow, so it was quite a surprise.

Your Opinion

I feel like I should've posted today... but I just don't know what to post about!

So, I'd like to hear ideas from all of you, stuff to get my brain going to help me when I get in sticky spots like this and need something to blog about.  What would y'all like to hear about? :)

Fashion Faux Pas

I sincerely wish I could do some from when I go to the mall in about a week, but my cell phone takes cruddy pictures, I can't bring my family's camera, and I doubt one of my friends will bring their iTouches. :P If I can convince one to bring their iTouch, then all hope is not lost for some Fashion Faux Pas to laugh at!

Guess what I'm doing at the mall?  Getting my ears pierced!  Finally.  I've been waiting since I was in, like, elementary school.
