Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and happy holidays from my family to yours! We went to Disneyland over the weekend and had an AMAZING time. I will definitely blog about it soon, hopefully in the very near future. Christmas at Disneyland is perfectly magical, and I'm really excited to share some pictures and little stories. I've really been enjoying this short break with family and friends because of all the holidays. Life is just so crazy (but in the best way) right now so blogging will be on and off, but I'll do my best to post whenever I can. I hope all of you are having a wonderful holiday season with your loved ones!
And I hope you're getting cool gifts like the ugly Christmas t-shirt that I got my brother. Can you tell he loves it? ;)

The Blogmopolitan Quiz

I'm a magazine junkie, and I occasionally peruse Cosmo in waiting rooms, at home, in friends' apartments, etc. Their Cosmo quiz is definitely one of my favorite parts, and I actually love doing the quizzes in magazines in general. Maybe it's the Psych major in me that loves it, but it's just really fun and I love learning filling out surveys, quizzes, you name it. I couldn't pass out doing this quiz when I saw it at Rachel's blog. She's amazing, and you should check out her answers at her blog too. :) And check out Erin's blog since she created this fun quiz, and link up your answers to the quiz to share with everyone. Do it, I promise it's really fun!

I'm Feeling 22! :)

Spin the birthday wheel for a shot!
Oh oh!
I don't know about you
But I'm feeling 22 ;)

Yup, it's my birthday, and I'll go out with friends and eat everything if I want to. Calories don't count! Other than the popular T-Swift song, I love the idea of being 22. Another year older, another year better I always say. I treated this birthday as like an anniversary of being 21 since I didn't do anything crazy for my 21st a year ago. Most of my friends weren't 21 yet at the time so I skipped out on all the bar shenanigans. I guess this was my long overdue 21st redemption, and it was definitely a night to remember!

Some of my beautiful girl friends! Sadly I don't remember when we took this. Ooops...
My friends and I went out to dinner at El Toro Bravo, which is a Mexican restaurant in my college town's downtown area. Their chips were amazing, and I got flan and churros as nice birthday freebies! After dinner, we went bar hopping and got some yummy drinks and also some not-so-yummy, strong drinks. It was a fun night, but I was definitely a sleepy grandma by the end of the night. Aging is not being easy on me (have mercy!). I was also a hot mess by the end of the night, but thank goodness for amazing friends that looked out for me. I survived!
My friends are the best. :')
To top it all off, my girl friends also made me an amazing poster, and I also received some fun cards from friends this year. They know me so well, and I love them dearly for knowing me almost too well. The sea otter card is so punny. It's OTTERLY amazing (credit goes to the card maker, sadly I'm not that clever)! I'm a sentimental person, and these things definitely made me feel loved and special. :)

My free birthday fro yo! #addicted
I had an amazing birthday, and I feel so blessed to have a fantastic group of friends and family in life. I didn't take too many pictures unfortunately. But I think that's okay since that probably means I was having too much fun to stop and lose precious time over getting that picture perfect Instagram shot. Time is a gift, and I'm grateful for every minute I have of it. Cheers to 22 years, and I'm hoping for good health and more memorable, fun times ahead!

December List

December is my favorite month so I couldn't pass up making a list of my faves this month. I hope everyone's enjoying the holidays doing festive things. :)
  • My Birthday - I'm turning 22 on the 15th (this Sunday) so I'm stoked to celebrate another year of life. I'm starting to get really creeped out by the number of candles on my cake, but I get to eat yummy cake and be selfish for the day. And that's my mature approach to my birthday and aging ha!
  • Finals - I'll finish finals tomorrow morning so I can't wait to finally be done with school for a little bit. This quarter has been so awful, and I won't miss it at all. Adios fall quarter! Hello winter break!
  • Disneyland - My family and I are going to Disneyland next weekend. Obviously, it'll be the best weekend ever. I'm a Disney child, and I need my dole whip fix.
  • Christmas - I saved the best for last. Christmas is my favorite holiday, and I'm excited to watch Christmas movies and eat more festive cookies. I love the beautiful decorations everywhere, and I'm a sucker for the smell of pine trees. Gotta love that warm Christmas feeling. :)
What are you looking forward to this month?
