i've been thinking about moving to a different blogging site. it would be really weird to leave livejournal but it seems like so many people have abandoned this site. also the ads that pop up when you view this journal are annoying.
which site would you recommend? i already have a wordpress account that i used briefly in 2009.
blogger?
blogspot?

i finally got around to taking a picture of all the cards i received from this card swap. i thought it was weird that i received the lower right one first and then all of the other ones in the same day, a week or two later.

the past few weeks have been a haze of gift wrapping, birthday party-going, not sleeping enough, eating entirely too much food. for some reason i wasn't in my usual christmas spirit this year. i got so many amazing presents but i'm happy the day is over. we spend so much time, effort and money on one day then it's all over. jared and i are leaving for florida on wednesday to see his family and have a 2nd christmas. i'm excited to get away a little bit and relax.

here's what's been going on lately...


jared, his brother, our friend jordan and i FINALLY ventured up to cleveland to eat at melt for the first time!

moreCollapse )
new year's eve was strange. jared and i got into a fight, talked it over, our friends were scattered for awhile but we all assembled to watch the ball drop. my favorite part was the really good kiss jared gave me at midnight and him singing "wouldn't it be nice" to me later on. the majority of this year has been a not-so-good one for our relationship but i have so much hope for us my heart. 2011 will be better, i'm sure of it!

as for today, i'm not feeling so good. my throat is scratchy, back sore, head congested. i'm hoping to get it under control by wednesday before we fly.

ps. i'm not making resolutions for the new year.

look at this great stuff! i got the two things i had wanted most for christmas: an ipod dock/radio/cd player & the hot pink sewing machine from the antique store! i feel so lucky. jared also bought me a pair of toms shoes but they're too small even though they're my usual size. i'll just have to exchange them.
this morning mom made waffles & eggs and we sipped mimosas until my sister and her husband came over to unwrap presents. i would have wanted to unwrap presents the minute i woke up but nobody else seems to share my excitement! (ever)

coconut, the perfect christmas kitty.

we didn't decorate the big tree until this past sunday. for some reason i wasn't really feeling the full-on, christmas spirit this year. just tonight, on christmas eve, am i really excited for tomorrow. after mom and i cleaned up the house a bit and i wrapped my presents.
jared's brother is visiting ohio over the weekend, my mom made a bunch of appetizers for us & some friends came over to play partini and the ridiculous dice/write numbers game. i can't find the real name of this game. this is the only link i could find about it. we usually play to 200 to make it last a little longer. it's super fun with a big group of people.

merry christmas, dear friends.

my little, pink tree is up in my room! i bought some cheap green & pink ornaments at big lots and i think they look pretty darn cute. we have yet to put up the big tree in the living room. christmas is in two weeks! why don't we have it up yet? my mom's been super busy with baking orders and i HATE putting lights on the tree. (my pink one is pre-lit, woo!) so i guess i'm waiting for somebody to drag the tree out, throw on the lights then i'll do the fun part of decorating it with ornaments.

for the last hour (possibly longer) i've been looking at my google reader. it's always fun to look at but there are so many inspiring posts everywhere right now. a lot of them are christmas decoration related. some of them on how to use reusable products to make pretty things which is one of my most favorite things ever!

for example;
* fabric scrap wreath.
* paper ornament made out of an old book.
* twisted felt garland.

sometimes my brain feels like it's going to explode because of the awesome possibilities that are everywhere.
