Busy Busy Busy
The end of the semester was a typical one, consisting of stress and homework. Now that I am off, I have created my own to-do list for home. This includes weeding out the bad of 2010, trying to get my house tidy before school begins in a week, and working on some paintings (one that I am including in my shop after I had started it last summer and one three canvas piece that a woman bought a couple days ago).
So to let you all know I am still alive, here are some pics from my holidays.
We spent Thanksgiving in Lafayette at Matt's parent's house and then had a dinner with friends the next night (since we are used to two Thanksgiving meals in Oklahoma). We played games for two nights with the friends which was really fun...but don't worry it wasn't Pictionary. That one is a family thanksgiving original.
In between Thanksgiving and Christmas, we went to Lights in the Heights with friends in Houston. This is an annual event in a neighborhood with older homes and many houses have a band in the front...people wheel their ice chests and listen to music. It was the most Louisiana I have ever felt in Houston. LOVED IT! Matt also took me to see the Nutcracker at the Houston Ballet before Christmas. I had been begging to go see it again, since my mom had originally taken us, and this year we decided it was the perfect time. It was Matt's first time seeing it and he kept commenting on how much air some of the guys were getting haha. The weekend before Christmas we went to Lafayette to see Layla graduate from UL in Biology. Congrats girl!
