Fine, fine...I am stretching the truth...a lot :P. I think I've actually needed this whole week to recover physically and mentally from the exam. There's a part of me that's in Christmas mode and wants to shop shop shop and then there's the responsible side that knows I have a million things to do in the next 2 weeks. Guess which side has won out so far? In my defense, Spring Garden Road was tax-free and as a result most of my Christmas shopping is officially done (along with some personal shopping...*ahem*).
Speaking of Christmas...here are some things I'm loving:
Egg nog lattes at the Smiling Goat
Actually, I'm just loving egg nog in general!
Poinsettias at the market!
And some non-holiday things I'm loving:
Schoolhouse quinoa granola, aka best granola I have tasted in my life!
A haircut! Well, it's actually just a trim but it feels good to have all the split ends off. I had a coupon which included a cut at the Concepts School of Cosmetology so I decided to be brave and let a student cut my hair. She ended up doing a nice job!
Hope you're getting in the Christmas/Holiday spirit!
Note: I realize that not everyone celebrates Christmas so this post may seem a bit exclusive even though it's not meant to be. Since this is a personal blog it reflects personal views and the truth is that me and my family have always celebrated Christmas...and it is what I continue to celebrate now that I'm out on my own. However, in no way, shape or form am I against others taking part in other holidays and festivities at this time of year.
