2011’s Last

New Year’s Eve, after 11 but before 12, and what am I doing? Baking at home while Ryan plays WoW. Opted for a quiet night at home rather than going out and getting into mischief. Plus there’s the Coon family Christmas tomorrow, and I had cookies to bake! 2011 was one of those years where …

Holiday Hustle

Hello again! I know, I know- I still haven’t finished those 21-Day Challenge posts. I’ve been lazy about getting the photos up, and busy with all the Christmas hubbub after finals finished.

Pardon My Dust

I know, I know- the blog has been gathering dust. It’s just that time of year around MSU- finals week is upon us as of Monday, and I have an exam in each one of my four classes. So this thing has to take a back seat to my education, because my studies need to …
