i wish you enough...

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.
I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.
~author unknown
I wish you 2010.
Happy New Year!

reading is bliss!

My favortie thing to do when I have a break from school is read! My brothers think I am crazy. But during the semester I really cannot do any fun reading. They say their is no such thing as "fun" reading. Sadly, I did not pass on my love of reading to them. This break I have already devoured ten books. I have about fifteen more to go. I keep adding more books to my "to read" stack. Books-A-Million is pretty much my home planet! Are any of you reading any good books right now?

the day after...

We had a quiet and low key Christmas, which I think suited us very well this year. The first set of holidays are over so hopefully next year will be a little bit easier. Hopefully, everyone had a great time yesterday with friends and family!

the sing off

Did anyone else watch The Sing Off? I was hooked the first night. I have never really watched American Idol...*gasp* I know I am probably the only person in America who does not watch it. But this show was fantastically awesome! It is amazing what people can do with just their voice.

excuse me mr tv exec...why??

Some of my favorite TV shows have been prematurely cancelled. Making me wonder what goes through the mind of TV executives. Most of these shows were never given the chance to make their mark. The DVD sales of these shows prove that they were awesome! I know there are many more shows I could put on this list but these were my favs!

What are some of your favorite shows that have been cancelled?

yay chipotle! and shoes!

We had a blast yesterday. We decided to go to Jacksonville because it is a shorter drive than Atlanta. I told them I did not care where we go as long as I got Chipotle. And I did. And it was delicious! 

Then we went shopping! Well, more like window shopping...since all three of us are broke college students! But I did get some awesome new shoes! They were on sale and I decided to reward myself for making all A's this semester. I am not much of a high heel girl. I always look at the high heels in shoe stores and dream a little bit over some of them. I just cannot walk in them but I do love my converse! The majority of my shoe collection is flip-flops but when it gets too cold for those I am a converse and boot girl. You know the whole week that it is cold in south GA!                                                                    
It has been raining a lot here lately. So I have been wanting to buy some rain boots. It takes me forever to make up my mind. So here a few that I am waffling between.
Any suggestions?

I am just worried that the light color will get dirty very quickly.

really cute funky design
These are really retro and I love them!

these again have a lighter base but are totally cute!

 charming daisy design

julie & julia

I just watched Julie & Julia and it was fantastic! I had heard mixed reviews from my friends, actually more of the people I talked to did not like it. But I loved it. I really liked the way the two stories were blended. It was really easy to follow and not confusing at all. Meryl Streep really brought Julia to life and Amy Adams was just so real as Julie.  

I love to cook. At one point I even considered culinary school. But I could not imagine cooking 524 recipes in 365 days...especially French recipes, while writing a blog about it. I remember watching Julia Child's show every Saturday on PBS. So, this movie really resonated with me. While looking at my numerous cookbooks tonight I realized that I do not have a copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, I must rectify this situation at once! I really want to try some of the recipes in the movie. The movie also made me realize how boring my blog must be. So, I want to say thank you to the few people who regularly read my blog and I will try to be more interesting. But I think I am a fundamentally boring person;) 

Have a happy Sunday!

I am FINALLY finished with this semester! I just submitted my last final! I am going tomorrow to sell my books back and get approximately $20 for $300 worth of books...but that is college for you. My roomies and I are taking a day trip to Atlanta Sunday!! We are going to eat at my favorite restuarant...Chipotle! ***I am trying to petition Chipotle to bring one to Savannah*** And we are going shopping and basically just releasing semester stress. It is going to be a ton of fun even if it is a 4 hour drive one way. I am already making road trip cd mixes! :D

6 more days...

Only six more days and I will be finished with this semester! I still have one big project, one assignment, one test, and four finals until I am through...whew...when I put it like that I do not see how I am going to get it all finished in six days. I should really get off the internet and get to work;) I will probably not be blogging in the next week but I will still be reading your blogs. I am a master procrastinator and at the end of every semester I vow to NEVER procrastinate again...where do I go wrong!!
