Guess who is finally home for Thanksgiving?! Me!! Yippee
I’ll be holding down the fort at the Montazamis household when my mom, dad, and Sara will be in Sweden this week. It’s just me, Emma and Nicho and the pups. We’re going to have a lot of fun watching movies, making peppermint hot chocolate, and doing holiday things!
My mom set up a hot chocolate station in the kitchen and I am so excited to try it out. Might make a cup right now actually! We have both regular and peppermint hot cocoa :)
Do you notice a brand new leather jacket? I will be posting about it soon… :)
Tiiiiiis the season to be jolly fa la la la laaa la la la laaaa
After last night I have so much holiday spirit! We hosted a Friendsgiving at our house last night with all of our friends and it was so much fun. It was potluck style so everyone got to bring their own dish. We had SO much food haha. We had stuffing, turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, candied yams, candied carrots and every other kind of Thanksgiving-y dish you could think of! I made my signature apple crumble :)
My friends are literally the cutest. I had such a moment yesterday when I looked around the table and everyone was holding hands saying a grace before we ate. It’s moments like these when I realize how lucky I am to be surrounded by such amazing people. I love you all! I am THANKFUL that’s for sure!
Have you guys ever tried Thanksgiving food? Whats your favorite dish?!
Hello happy campers!
Two 10 page papers later, my school week is done!! I’m so happy to have those big papers done and completed… It’s a pretty awesome feeling. I celebrated with a little pick me up Green Tea blended boba drink from Urth Caffe. It is so damn good!
I’m about to get ready to head to the campus bar for a few beers with friends and then we’re all taking a bus to the LMU hockey game! What are your weekend plans??
I had a big ”first” this weekend…. Can you guess what it was?!
If you thought fake nails, than you’re right! That’s right, I finally chose to get them because I’ve been wanting them for quite some time now. I really like the semi-pointy look. I feel like a cat with sharp paws haha.
I chose a light pinkish color named Ballet Slipper and I think it’s very natural and elegant. What do you guys think?
Since it’s my first time having acrylics, everything I do with my hands feels super weird… Whenever I touch my hair it feels very thick (hard to explain) and I can’t open jewelry clasps haha. Sometimes it’s annoying, but I like them for now.
Have you guys ever gotten fake nails? Any horror stories with them?!
I finally got the pictures from Taylor’s 22nd birthday party this weekend, yay! The theme was Taylor’s Toys and Twenty-Two. She told everyone to bring a childrens toy so she could donate it all to the Toys for Tots organization. It gives toys to underpriveleged youth, something every kid deserves to play with. We had to dress up as either a toy or a toddler, and I chose to be a toy! My roommate Ivanna and I dressed up as the red and blue guys from the ”Rock em Sock em” robot game. I’m sure you guys have played with that toy when you were younger because I sure have!
Now it’s Monday again…. bleh. I’m sitting at coffee bean working on an 8 page paper!
After a party-packed weekend, we spent all day today at a sisterhood event for my sorority. They organized an all day event on campus that focused on team-building. Since there are so many girls in Theta (about 130) it’s hard to get to know everyone on a deep and personal level. That I why we always try to find ways to improve our chapter by bonding with each other. It is so important for girls within a sorority to have a strong sense of sisterhood and feel loved by their sisters.
Today we had a group of guys come to our school to help us with team building. We did so many fun exercises and we really opened up with each other!
One thing I also started doing was reading devotionals every day at morning and at night. I like to read it as my daily inspiration. The bible references are all small reminders of what I should be focusing on throughout my day. I recommend it!
Here is today’s arm candy, including the Nixon half silver / half gold watch that I got for my birthday. My white and silver Hermes bracelet adds a nice touch too!!
This is all getting so freakin’ weird. Last week I took pictures in my cap and gown for my LMU senior graduation photos. It was so surreal to actually put on the graduation hat and robe. I kind of had this huge realization that I’m going to be graduating college before I know it. My college career gave me some of the best years of my life and I’m so happy that I got to study here at LMU. I’ve met amazing friends that I know I will stay in close touch with in the future. I’ve been so lucky to receive such a good education with great professors and advisors, and I thank my family so much for their support.
Now it’s time to live it up (not that I haven’t been already) the rest of my senior year and appreciate every day I have as a college student. The future is lookin’ bright :)
I finally put up my Urban Outfitters firefly lights! They look really good outlining my artwork on the walls. I even got creative making a little heart design next to the painting. What do you guys think?
I think my college room turned out pretty well! It will be so nice to come back from a long day and snuggle up in bed with these cozy lights on…. I’m dreaming of that right now but I have to study study study!
I drove up to the Santa Monica / Malibu area today with friends to have lunch with our roommate Jessica’s family. It was at a place called the Jonathan Club, which is a nice beach club right on the water. It was absolutely beautiful and I’m so happy I got to go there! It’s one of those exclusive clubs that not everyone can join, so it was cool to visit!
We met with Jessica’s parents and grandparents and they are the cutest and nicest people ever! They all have Southern accents and they tell the funniest stories. They were definitely a great group to spend the day with!
At lunch I devoured a juicy cheeseburger and fries. Just what I needed and SO GOOD. I can almost cry that I might not be able to eat there again haha.
