Wow so last week felt harsh! But I made it through.
I feel like myself again. I had some time to think, I had some conversations with my family… Some with my boyfriend. Some with my best friend. And I feel better.
I feel like a weight has been lifted off.
I had stressed myself out about life, ontop of studying for finals, working and volunteer. I was on a clear path to burn out.
This weekend, I maybe should have been more productive with studying for my final on Wednesday. But I wasn’t, and it’s okay. I will be okay, I needed some fun time. I did some shopping, cooking and lots of yummy eating. I still have time to study. And it’s only worth 20% of my grade (thank God!)…
However my economics final that is in less than a week is worth 60%…. But I’ve been real good with studying for that
I go to Orlando in 2 weeks basically… I’ve decided to take the Christmas sugar cookie baking down south with me for my boyfriend to experience it.
This weekend for Black Friday I ended up getting cookie cutters, hahaha. Only three of them. I could have bought 104 cookie cutters for $10, but decided against it.
I did buy sprinkles and candies for the cookies though. When I’m in Orlando I just need to get icing and cookie mix. I’m saving us work, and not making homemade dough…. Because, let’s face it, that’s a lot of work and not something I want to drag my bf into. I’d rather just make the dough into shapes and make the bf decorate them with me.
Sometimes I think his and I’s cultures are too different. I brought that up tonight when we talked… He said he liked the challenge, and that I make him a better person.
That’s a fundamental thing in a relationship I guess!
My head has been SOO into Christmas baking, I get all caught up in different cookie designs I want to try. Pinterest is my baking and cooking go-to!
I bought candy to specifically be able to make faces and snowmen and cool designs! I’m so excited to make these cookies!
We are having a big Christmas dinner with all of our friends…. Where we will definitely take our decorated “homemade” cookies. I almost want to get my boyfriend and I into ugly Christmas sweaters for it, hahaha.
The weather hasn’t been too cold here, but the snow is definitely staying put…. It’s going to feel so cruel when I come home from Orlando!! LOL!
