Once upon a December

You remember that song? I think it's from the movie Anastasia. I never really loved that movie too much but I remember that song from it. It's lyrics (I looked 'em up):

Far away, long ago
things I yern to remember
and a song someone sings
Once upon a December
And a song someone sings
Once upon a December

That's only a small part, but it's the part I can relate to. December... this month marks a big milestone in my life. Nothing life changing or anything, just something note worthy. What's that you ask? Does it have to do with the mish? Well how did you know? It couldn't possibly be because he is the only thing I blog about these days. Anyway, moving on. This month marks one year. One year since I saw the man. One year since I have been kissed. One year since I have been held.

One year since I have felt whole.

One year since the man of my heart headed east to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the world. One year down, one to go. Half way there. Yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

On another note, guess who sent me the cutest Christmas gift ever. You guessed it! Man you are good. I got a package the other day from North Carolina. It was filled with a blanket, a UNC sweat shirt (new favorite), a beautiful picture of Christ, and the sweetest thing I have ever seen. He bought a puzzle of a map. A map of the United States. The map had a star on Arizona, Florida, and North Carolina. On the back was a note. It said "this puzzle is symbolic, wherever we are in the world- we are incomplete without eachother- just like a puzzle- all the pieces are connected." So cute! He said "that is the advantage of stealing my heart, now it is always with you." Can you say hopeless romantic? Can you say me being totally smitten? I won't say I'm in love, but basically I am in love.

Buying for a missionary is hard, but I managed to think of something I thought he would like. It also was my latest crafting experience. YAY FOR CRAFTING!

So I went to Joann's. They had some amazing UNC Tarheel material there for a fleece blanket. It was SUCH an easy project. The hardest part was the fact that I definitely tied the entire thing inside out. I had to UNTIE and RETIE the entire thing. My fingers were bleeding. It was brutal. Here are some pictures of the final product---

How about that for a sexy picture.

I hope he liked it. It is hard to buy for people who need nothing and can't have anything.

Okkkkk so the rest of Christmas Day was pretty uneventful. I spent the moring on Skype with the fam. It was almost like being there on Christmas morning, thank goodness for technology!

My babies, they were showing me what they got.

The we are, Skype- you are my new best friend. Forget everything I said about best friends before,  it's all you now.

In the middle of the day, my girl Stacey and I attemped to be productive and do something fun. We went to Magic Kingdom, but it was pouring rain,  so we went to the mall. It was closed (duh.). So we went for food. Everything was closed (duh.). So we went to Burger King- the only thing open- and then went to the lovely Colleen's house to hang out. It was sooooo fun, even if all we did was talk about life and quote the office... oh and make fun the lady in the refrigorator commercials.

So that was my Christmas. I finished it off with a few episodes of the OC. Man I love that show, mostly I just love Seth Cohen. OH! And I tried this drink Skip is obsessed with! It is called Cheerwine, it is AMAZING! I was instantly addicted. It is like Dr. Pepper, but better :)

Try it. You will like it.

I got a new baby PC for Christmas from the parentals. Thanks mommy. Sorry, but I have the best mom ever.  Here he is in all his glory...

Sorry he is sideways, I was too lazy to turn the picture. I have never had a "he" thing before. I am a little weirdo, I name all of the things I love the most. My car- she is Mrs. Darcy. My snowboard- Kelly. My old computer- she is Holly. My old iPod- well I can't remember her name. Anyway, you see where this is going. I name my stuff, and it's all girls. Well I am turning over a new leaf. My computer is a boy. His name is Zachary. I liked the idea so much, I named my new iPod Jake. All these names are significant somehow, in case you were wondering. Usually they just reflect someone I love or want to be like. Anyway, with Zachary and I it was love at first sight.

The only other note worthy thing about my week was graduating from my college program. WOOT WOOT. Best/worst experience of my life. But don't you fret, I wouldn't trade it for the world.

This week should be interesting. I work until 2:15 and 3:15 am allllll week. Thanks everyone who celebrates New Years at Magic Kingdom, you are throwing off my sleep schedule. It should be interesting and OHHHHHH SOOOOO BUSSYYYY. I can hande it, I think.

Remember Christ is the reason for the Christmas season, but also remember you can feel His love, and the spirit He brings, all year long. Let Him in.

Love you, Merry Christmas. Let me know how yours went!
