the gist.

it's been so cold. and windy. look.

it was even colder tonight. so i made breakfast for supper (as jade would say) up at my room,
so i wouldn't have to walk to the caf.
oatmeal, herbal tea (thanks mom!), applesauce, clementine, and a little spanish studying.
and remember those christmas break countdown chains we made?
well i loved seeing this today.

just a few more days!

okay off to bed.

love to all.

it is the first monday i've been able to sleep in
and not go to my 7 a.m. biology class.

it is six thirty in the morning.
and i cannot go back to sleep.
dang my internal clock.
so i thought i'd do a quick post.
i'm not sure if i'll have time this week
or over the break.

this past weekend was great.
dinner, sushi, saturday's warriors, work, nutcracker, st, church, fiddler on the roof, talking with my family, chatting with emily, laughing with my roommates.

i didn't take any pictures.
too bad i can't transfer the snapshots in my mind onto my hard-drive.
this semester has been so great, and i've met such amazing people.
i'm so grateful for my roommates and our little gang, and so blessed to have met layton.
finals are going to be a bit stressful - but i am ready to attack them best i can.
then i can come home and be with my family!
love to all.

but i am completely in love with markhed jewelry.
everything she does is so unique and perfect.
these are some of my favourites that she has come out with.

yesterday it was so cold.
ten degree wind chill - oh my goodness.
i'm a baby. it was so windy, 
layt walked me up to the lofts and i ran to the warmth of my room.
an hour later i walked out to the lobby, to the sight of layton
holding a vase of flowers for me.
he walked all the way downtown
in the freezing cold,
and got me flowers.
i'm so lucky.

so we went shopping, and made a roomie christmas tree.

then sunday night, layton and i went to the library
to assist in the annual employee christmas tree decorating party.
four people showed up, including layt and me.

so we have a friend who borrows my camera a lot.
someone asked her to take pictures for them, but she got scared and asked if i could help her.
i thought she meant help her take the pictures.
she thought i would help by being the subject.
one clarifying/convincing conversation later, we were out in BV taking pictures.
as you can imagine, we basically laughed and goofed around the whole time.
twas silly. but deserves a place in the thanksgiving break series.

mother. . .do yo like my new coat?
