Tis the Season ...


I know I'm a little early, but it's officially Christmas time at my house. Halloween is gone and I couldn't be happier because it means my favorite day is coming up! Since I've been away from home for so many years, there are very few times when I get to go back and see my family. Christmas is one of those times. Apart from all the festive decor and gifts, it really is just a great holiday to spend with the people that I don't get to see as often anymore. It's always a happy time for me and I can't wait to go home. Til then, I'm going to enjoy my little decorations that I put together last night. It's a great way to remind me to hang in there; the end of the semester and greatest time of year, are right around the corner :)

Also, I put together the simplest dessert ever to make: Strawberry Pound Cake!
All you need is one of those store bought mini round pound cakes (they can usually be found in the bakery section of the grocery store). Mix and mash up some strawberries in a bowl with sugar to drizzle over it, then top with whipped cream- I prefer Reddi Whip! TADA ! Masterpiece and so delicious!

    First time to visit your blog!
    I can feel the Christmas vibe while looking at the strawberry pound cake above. Made me strave to death at this hour here in Philippines.

  7. It looks so cozy! We usually don't go into full Christmas mode until our food has digested Thanksgiving night, but this post is definitely getting into the spirit. (I also plan to do my Christmas shopping EARLY this year.)

  8. I love your pictures; your place looks so cozy and homey!

    I found myself nodding as you spoke about the holidays and your family. I just recently relocated to DC and it's been 6, almost 7 months since I've seen my family. I get to go home for Thanksgiving, but not Christmas, so I totally feel you.

    Hang in there, girl! You can do it.

    1. It is hard being away from home, but it's just one of the many sacrifices we make for our education and careers. I'm glad you'll get to see your family soon. I'm sure it will be an exciting time :)

  9. I'm excited for you & the moment you close your laptop on your last final exam. That feeling is amazing, the feeling of having absolutely NOTHING to do for the the first time in months - made even more enjoyable by the holidays. Good luck! You got it, girl!

    1. Thanks so much .. it's nerve-wracking because I am not ready for finals to come .... I still have so much more preparing to do. But I cannot wait to sit back and breathe and not feel like I'm wasting time not reading something :) It must be such a relief.
