Life Happens...

So I now officially 22. Well I have been for a few weeks now, but I figured this live changing age was worth mentioning belated or not. The age of twenty-two is such an odd age, because 21 seems like the last exciting age, so turning 22 is well, so....expected. Thankfully, my wonderful friends and family helped to make my birthday much more than ordinary.

On a more exciting note, I had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I didn't go home because my roommate was getting married nearby on Friday, so driving home three hours just to turn around and go back for a wedding seemed a little pointless. So Ellie's parents invited all of us that stayed for the wedding to come to their thanksgiving. It was amazing, and I am so grateful for their kindness. I also got the chance to use my new Kitchenaid mixer to make a pumpkin cake to bring. Here is a picture of my new adored kitchen appliance. I have been without a mixer for awhile now, so now that I have my new mixer I want to postpone all homework, papers, etc just to use it.

The rest of my Thanksgiving break was filled with coffee, church, sleeping in, Black Friday shopping, and Sara's wedding! It was a beautiful wedding, and I feel so blessed to have gotten the chance to get to know Sara so well over the last few months. She is a great friend. I am so happy for her and Lee!

And one last thing, Black Friday shopping is so bizarre. I went with a couple friends, and it is always amusing to see the intensity of the shoppers. Everyone is half asleep but determined to get their shopping done. I think we went more for the experience than for the shopping, but I actually ended up getting a lot of my Christmas shopping done.
