Closing thoughts on 2011
I was up till 4:30 last night thinking about this past year. I'm so proud of all that I've accomplished this year. I've learned so much about myself and I feel I've become stronger and more confident in who I am. This year I realized my capabilities, opened myself up to new friendships, traveled and tried not to sweat the small stuff! For once I kept all my resolutions. My biggest accomplishment was losing a little under 50 pounds. That alone has changed my life in more ways then I ever imagined. I plan to continue to work my way to a healthier me. I also achieved all the academic goals I set for myself. For this new year I have set some more goals for myself and I am so excited to start working towards reaching them. This has been the best year yet! I'm looking forward to what the new year will bring. Goodbye 2011 and cheers to a happy healthy and peaceful new year! I'm ready for ya 2012!!

Very soon it will be Christmas Day

Just wanted to write a quick post to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!! Here are a few pictures I took throughout the month of December. Mostly of our Christmas decorations at home as well as a couple of pictures I took on our weekend trip to Dallas. Now it's time to get all glammed up for two family Christmas Parties! Tonight Santa comes and tomorrow is finally Christmas Day! I couldn't be more excited!

the perfect black boots

 So I'm sitting in bed right now lusting over these Steve Madden Spinnner Boots. Now just a week ago before the semester ended, I was whining about being sleep deprived. Now that I have all the time in the world to sleep, I can't seem to go to bed at a reasonable hour. It is now 2 a.m. and what am I doing? window shopping! Yeah, not the best idea when you only have a mere $6 dollars to your name. Anyway, back to these beauts. I NEED these in my life and I'll explain why. Firstly, I don't own a pair of black shoes, that alone is completely unacceptable. Secondly, I am now 20 and I think its about time that I use a shoe with a little bit of a heel. Now I realize these only have a 2 inch heel but I can't walk in heels gracefully so I've got to start somewhere! Lastly, Unlike the taupe suede boots I have now, leather is pretty durable so I wont have to worry about ruining them when it rains.

 Now I know what you are thinking. These shoes are very similar to the TopShop Ambush boots that have been all the rage on YouTube and the blogosphere. I loved those when I saw them and now I have fallen for these. Only thing with the TopShop boots is that there is no way for me to see them in person to try on. Now with these boots, the only thing keeping me from them is $140 and a 5 mile drive to the mall. Plus Steve Madden shoes have always been good to me.

Unfortunately, I would ask Santie for these but I've already mailed him my list. ;) Since there are only 9 days till Christmas I have a hunch that he has finished all my Christmas shopping. ah what's a girl to do in such a dilemma *sigh* Late night online browsing is never a good idea....
