Hot Yoga

Tonight my friends and I are going to hot yoga. I'm excited yet nervous all at once. I'm nervous because I haven't worked out in over 9 months (Ekkk), but I'm excited to get back into working out, well at least motivated to work out more. :) I use to be very strict with working out.. 2 hours a day 6 days a week. Sometimes I think that was too much and that's why I stopped. 
I did Pilates every other day when I use to work out, so I was wondering if Pilates is like Yoga? I enjoyed Pilates very much! I was wondering if you guys ever tried out Hot Yoga, and what's your opinion? I'll give a follow up if anyone is interested in learning more about the session.
Leave a comment and let me know if you've ever tried Hot Yoga and if you have any tips!

My Christmas Eve

I had such a wonderful Christmas spending it with all the people I love. 

Christmas eve I had work, church, and dinner with my family. Later on in the night I headed over to my fiance's house to exchange presents with his family. It was a lot of fun, and I'm so thankful for the beautiful gifts I got. 

I decided to share some photos from the night. I hope you enjoy. 

My future mother-in-laws dog, I was trying to get a picture of him next to the tree, this is the best I could get. Fail.

 My fiance's brother opening up his present.

Such a horrible picture of my beautiful cat Nana.. I bought her a bunch of treats for Christmas and put them in a little gift bag. 

Letting Nana pick which treats she wants. 

My fiance's mom smelling the candle I got her from Bath and Body Works. 

Blue Rays for his new blue ray player. 

I always give my fiance one present for Christmas Eve, and this year it was air freshners. :)

Mr. Odie is tired after all the presents haha.. 

I had such a great night. Was up till 1 in the morning opening presents with them. Had so much fun. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas Eve as well. Soon I'll post photos from Christmas. But tomorrow is my family's annual Christmas party, so there will be lots of photos to be taken. And I'm really excited!!

Merry Christmas!

I want to wish all my beautiful readers a very Merry Christmas. Tomorrow I'll be very busy so I wanted to get a post in tonight before all the craziness started. In a little bit I'll be heading over my fiance's house to exchange presents. I'm really excited to give everyone their gifts. :)

Anyway, I hope all of you have a great Christmas. I hope Santa brings everything you guys asked for and maybe a little bit more. :) 

I made a few clay ornaments one of my best friends reminded me about that I never posted of my blog, so I figure there's no better time to post them but tonight. 

Also, while Christmas shopping, I picked up of candy cane earrings, I lost them, and they were my favorite, and I also picked up cute hair clips that I got tons of compliments on. 

Have a nice Christmas everyone! <3

*Christmas Traditions*

Christmas Traditions

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Definitely wrapping paper. I think it's a lot "funer" to unwrap presents. 

2. Real tree or Artificial? We have an artificial tree. But when I have children I'm definitely going to do a real tree for a few years. 

3. When do you put up the tree? I think right after Thanksgiving is appropriate to put up your Christmas tree, so that's usually when we do ours, if not later. 
4. When do you take the tree down?  After the New Year. It's so sad when it comes down, makes our apartment look so bare.

5. Do you like eggnog? Never tried it.
6. Favorite gift received as a child? Definitely life-sized Barbie!! It was great because I was able to wear her clothes too. :)
7. Do you have a nativity scene?  Of course! Why wouldn't you? He's the reason for the season! :)
8. Hardest person to buy for?  My father, he has everything.
9. Easiest person to buy for?  My mother or my fiance's mother, they're happy with anything they get. I love that.
10. Mail or email Christmas cards? I have yet to actually mail/email Christmas cards, but when I do I will definitely mail.
11. Worst Christmas gift you ever? No Christmas present could be the worst, it's the thought that counts, and besides there's some families who don't receive any  or could afford any gifts, so you should be thankful you're even getting a gift. :P
12. Favorite Christmas Movie(s)?The Grinch who Stole Christmas. (True meaning of Christmas!)


Charlie Brown Christmas

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Usually in October, but this year I started in November.
14. Ever recycled a Christmas present? Once! When I was 13 or so, I forgot to ask my parents for money for a gift that I had to give the next day so I improvised and gave something I really liked that I haven't used to one of my friends. I know, bad. haha
15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Christmas cookies!!
16. Clear lights or colored on the tree? I like clear, but the fiance wanted blue lights.. so I listened. lol
17. Favorite Christmas song? Santa Baby -- Mariah Carey
18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? We travel, every year, but I will tell you this, when we have our own home and kids, everyone is coming to our home. haha.
19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?  I can attempt it. But I won't. 
20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Star. (My pink tree I didn't put up this year.. boo!)
21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning?  Tradition is, opening with my fiance's family Christmas Eve, and then with my family Christmas day, and my fiance and I are going to exchange at our apartment Christmas day later in the evening. 
22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? Nothing really, I mean if I would have to pick, definitely the traffic. It's hard to get from point A to B.. boo.
23. Favorite ornament, theme, or color? A cupcake ornament my best friend bought me.
  24. What do you want for Christmas this year? Michael Kors watch... ohhh I do I do I do!!! haha. No I'll be happy with whatever I get. :')

*Baking Cookies*

Last Sunday, before I came home for break, the fiance and I decided to bake a bunch of cookies for our families(more like ME bake the cookies). I took a few photos and thought I would share.

I made 4 batches of cookies. Candy Cane cookies(a recipe from my grandma), Peanut Butter Blossoms, Chocolate cookies with a cherry on top drizzled with chocolate on top of the cherry(another recipe from my grandmat), and chocolate chip cookies.

It was nice to come home and give our families a little Christmas present. Anyway, here's some photos.

My dad always buys my mom some type of jewelry for Christmas, and this year he decided to go with a Pandora bracelet. He wanted me to go with him to pick out the charms and the type of bracelet. Well, I think I'm in love with the Pandora bracelet. I wasn't a huge fan of Pandora because I thought it was silly to spend so much of such a small charm. (But who am I kidding, I spend that much on Juicy charms) Now that I looked and put on a Pandora bracelet I'm longing for one. 

I feel like it's the type of bracelet I would wear everyday. My Juicy Couture bracelet I only wear once in a while because of how heavy the charms are I'm afraid of losing it. 

Anyway, my dad bought a bunch of charms for her starter bracelet and I also bought her the elephant charm. But I figured since I'm on the subject of Pandora I'd like to post some photos of the charms I like. 

What charms do you have? Do you like your Pandora bracelet?

But I'm off from work tomorrow so I'll spend the bulk of my day shopping, no worries. :)

Home for the Holidays

I'm officially home!

5 finals later.. in a matter of only 3 days, lack of sleep, and mentally drained, I'm home for the holidays!! :)

I can't believe Christmas is next weekend. I feel like I'm way behind, and I really need to finish Christmas shopping! Ahh! Is any one else in the same boat as me? When I talk to people and they say they're done for Christmas makes me so nervous! 

Anyway, I don't have much to post about because all I've done this entire weekend and weekdays is study, study, and more studying. So I'll post a photo of our tree from school. I have so many photos to post, it's insane. 

Anyway, have a great day everyone, back to work I go! I'm excited! Talk to you later.
