I'm trying to be really productive this semester and complete my course work in advance. I always get things done on time, but I'm trying to take advantage of free time and complete things early. So, I'm at Daybreak (a coffee house) studying with a friend. Yes I know, you're probably wondering how I can be studying if I'm blogging; I'm taking a break.

I get all kinds of ideas from Kristi about a lot of different things! Recently she posted a blog called 101 in 1001. It's a list of 101 things you want to accomplish in 1001 days...kind of a small bucket list on a timeline. I thought this sounded like fun so I'm going to start my list. I told my mom about it and I think she is going to make one also! That will be fun! It may take me a while to complete my list because I want to think of things I really want to do and I have school work to focus on. I think I will read more in this semester than my entire college career, undergraduate and graduate, combined! Ha ha, but seriously! It's going to be intense. Thank goodness this is my last semester. I will just have my internship left this summer and then it's graduation in August! :)

Christmas Vacation Has Come To An End

My Christmas vacation is officially over and the new semester has begun. I love the time I am able to spend at home with my family. The first part of my break started with a trip to visit Adam and the remainder of my break was spent at home with my family and friends. One would think I took advantage of the time off from school to accomplish some wedding planning, but that didn't happen. I took a break from all things school and wedding related. Ha ha!

Adam came to Lubbock last night for the weekend! :D I was so excited! We are going to the bridal fair tomorrow with my Mom and her friend Linda. My friend Erin, and fellow blogger, might go. I tried to lure her with the free cake samples. Lol! I can't wait for that and to get back into the wedding planning full swing. My Mom is a great organizer and I really appreciate all of her help. She takes great notes and pays attention to all the details. Plus it is fun to do all of the planning together. I love that she is willing to be a part of everything. She is my best friend. :)
