House of memories

Today’s happy thing, though it means a lot to me, is going to be a brief one, because there is so much to say that it is better to keep it short and sweet. With this semester of college being the first time I’ve ever been away from my family long-term, I have come to appreciate all the time I get to spend with my mom, dad, sister, and of course, dog. Whether it is playing video games with my dad, doing my sister’s makeup for a sweet sixteen, shopping with my mom, or chasing my dog around downstairs, I have come to appreciate the little things that I get to do with them. I’m excited to go home over winter break so I can have more than just one week to spend with everyone. I know there are fun times to come and more memories to make in the near future. Only 13 more days!

A Much Needed Break

I’m so glad the week has come and I have the opportunity to hang out with my family and relax! I know that as soon as I get back to school I will be super busy with final projects, papers, and exams, but for the time being it is nice to not have to worry about any of that for a week. These past two days I have been able to hang out exclusively with my family, and I am excited to be able to get together with my friends in the next coming days before thanksgiving.

Also, I am very excited to be able to spend time with my dog, Rocky! Here are some pictures:)

Here’s to the week to come!

Thanksgiving Plans

ONE WEEK. One week left until I go home for thanksgiving! I can’t wait to see my family and friends and have a chance to relax without having to worry about school. So, because I am so excited I figured I would make a list of all the things I am looking forward to doing over my week long break.

  1. See my dog! (If you could’t already tell from my blog post about my dog, Rocky, I miss him very much)
  2. Go out to lunch with my mom and get to talk to her face to face as opposed to on the phone
  3. Play video games with my dad, something that we did a lot over the summer, trying to see who could finish a game faster
  4. Hang out with my sister since I feel like I didn’t have much time to hang out with her for the two days I saw her over parent’s weekend
  5. Meet up with my group of friends, called the Breakfast Bunch, and have a fun time going out to eat, and in addition to this my friend group, called C4
  6. See one of my best friends who goes to Temple University
  7. See all my friends for that matter
  8. See the marching band’s show on thanksgiving and see guard friends and staff members that I have missed dearly
  9. Get ready to host thanksgiving at our house, even though my mom is going to be super stressed out about it
  10. Get a haircut (I really need one:))
  11. Sleeping in my own bed in my own room with no roommates!
  12. TAKING A SHOWER IN A NON-COMMUNAL BATHROOM
  13. Blasting music/listening to music without earbuds/getting to sing out loud
  14. Setting up for Christmas the day after thanksgiving
  15. Not having to worry about homework/school work for a short amount of time
  16. Getting to drive again/getting to go to different places
  17. Seeing my extended family over thanksgiving and getting to tell them about how I am liking college so far (also show them pictures of the dresses I have made along with the skirt and jeans-which I am currently working on- I made for class)

Needless to say I am looking forward to a lot of things over thanksgiving break, and I am glad I only have to wait one more week before I can do them all! 🙂

Little Puppy

With parents weekend coming up I wanted to talk about something for a little bit. I am super excited to see my parents and my sister (especially since they are going to come to the fashion show that I have talked about in previous posts), but it makes me sad that I won’t be able to see the fourth member of my family: my dog, Rocky. Since I get to talk on the phone and text with my parents and sister it’s not that huge of a separation since we are still talking and keeping in touch. I can’t do that with my dog.

Rocky is a toy poodle, and even though he is ten years old I still call him a little puppy. Whenever I would go to sleep I would go to brush my teeth and as soon as he heard the water turn on he would wait at the door of the bathroom for me to be done and then follow me into my room. This is only one of several adorable things he does like chasing after squirrels in the backyard, sticking his nose up peoples pant legs to beg for food, and burying himself in the blinds to get our attention while we are eating.

I can’t wait to see my little puppy over thanksgiving. Only one more month, Rocky!:)
