Life Lately 12-26-2013

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt has been more than a month since my last Life Lately post, and lots has happened since then, so I figured it was time for another one.

Enjoyed…Christmas and my birthday yesterday.  It feels very strange to be 20 now.  It’s like I’m grown up or something.  I’m not sure I like it.

Had a good time…with my family yesterday.  We opened our presents in the morning, ate some breakfast, then just hung out for awhile.  My grandparents, my cousin and her fiance, and my aunt and her boyfriend came over for dinner.

Baked…a lot the past few days.  I made my great-grandmother’s rolls (cinnamon and plain rolls).  I made my grandma’s almond bark.  We baked and decorated several different cookies.  Baking is one of the things I miss most when I’m at college, so I always love to bake when I’m home.

Sad about…the fact that I have to return to college in just one and a half weeks.  I don’t think I’ll be ready.

Recently read… The Christmas Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini.  It was a nice, quick Christmas read.  I enjoyed it.

Received…lots of wonderful gifts.  I got some new boots, shoes, a Brita water bottle for college, and some other cool stuff.  My grandma and grandpa gave me, my sister, and my cousin some really old bone dishes that originally belonged to my great-grandmother’s parents.  They are really gorgeous.
