Notice how no one has new blogs? That means the family is together and I couldn't be happier.

The Family is COMING!!!

Nothing in the world makes me happier than spending time with my family. Everytime we are together it is my own little piece of heaven. Kendall got home on wednesday, Natalie is coming today after a day in the airport and there will always be part of me that wishes Alaina could be coming too. I guess I will have to wait until Christmas where I get the best present of all. Family togetherness and a honey baked ham.

An Ugly Christmas

As many of you may know last night I had an ugly Christmas sweater party. It was so fun! I cannot tell you how great it was to see everyone in these ugly sweaters and how fun it was to think about people actually wearing them. Though the idea of an ugly sweater party is great I must admit I didn't come up with it. I owe my night of fun and laughter to my sister Nat Pat. Two years ago she gave me the idea when she had this great sweater for a party she attended. Ever since that moment the wheels in my mind have been working and planning the day when I could have my own ugly christmas sweater party. Well the day finally came, and it was glorious!
First Gabbe and Anna came over and Gabbe cut and styled my hair. We decided it was time to bring back my full bang and now Natalie and I are SO much alike. To pass the time we played Cranium and ate some holiday treats like fudge, cinnamon pumpkin squares, brownies, and graham crackers with frosting. We had a good time laughing at eachother.

It was such I good time that I am thinking of making one of my new holiday traditions! Merry Christmas everyone! I am looking foward to seeing you all soon!

I've Come to Realize

When I come home at night, and by the time I am ready to go to bed I cannot remember the morning. My days seem so long that by bedtime the morning seems like three days ago. It is so strange but oh well, what can a girl do?

Because I am a Weirde

Ever since watching 5 episodes of Project Runway I have become obsessed with fashion. I want to know the top designers and someday I want to be one. In my search for fashion inspiration I found this coat from Badgley Mischka's 2008 spring line. Ugh I want it so bad! Other favorite new designers include Jill Stuart and Gwen Stafani's L.A.M.B. If you can's appreciate my new love for high fashion atleast it gives you something to do while you sit at the computer for hours. This is the site I have been looking at.HAVE FUN!

Christmas in the Northwest

Why yes, it is almost Christmas. Why do you ask?

Our new tree is HUGE!
In true Wood tradition our halls and house are decked with holly and holiday spirit. I cannot believe that Christmas is actually happening.
PS- Our christmas in the Northwest is not a gift God wrapped in green because we don't believe in having real trees. Dad told me we don't get real trees because he wants me to have something to look foward to for when I get married. That makes just one more reason why I am getting married out of high school.
