Here come Santa Claus...

Well Christmas is three days away, although my family always celebrates on the 24th...

Any special plans? Relatives coming to town? Are huge platters of glutenous food going to be made? What did you ask Santa to bring you?

Obviously my family doesn't believe in Santa because we open gifts the night before... I think my family just feels like we should give Santa a break considering he has so many other chimneys to shimmy his big booty down!

Any ways... are you still in a bind on what to get family and friends for Christmas... here's a list of what I got my family members, which might give you some last minute ideas...

MOM: A book - yes my mother is EXTREMELY hard to shop for because when she wants/needs anything she buys it for herself right then and there... but I do give her things every day be it helping out around the house, going to Salt Lake City with her for her medical procedure, things like that.

DAD: USB adapter cord for his mac book air, Long Underwear [he's a skier and we live in a very cold city], books and an Amazon Kindle [hm, yes we got him tangible books and virtual books - ha ha]

OLDER SISTER [26 yrs. old]: Computer Program [for digital design], Snow Shoes, Printer, Scarves

[23 yrs. old]: iPod Touch, myTouch cell phone - with all the "fixings", football tickets to a Giants game

Oh and well... I already know what I am getting for X-Mas which kind of stinks because I do like a surprise... but oh well, I generally like giving more than I like receiving anyways!

So here is what I believe is wrapped under the tree for me: A North Face Fleece or 2, A Flavor Carbonated Water Maker, a Whole Foods gift card and yea, I think that's it - which is just fine with me! Honestly, I would be happy with a few hundred packs of Orbit Gum, Whole Foods gift cards up the wazoo, perhaps a gift card to the Vitamin Shop [love me some energy drink]... and maybe subscriptions to gossip magazines since I buy them EVERY WEEK... ALL 5 of them!

So any ways, happy holidays EVERYONE... and tell me what you got and might be getting this Christmas!

Some Updates...

Well since the year is coming to an end, I thought I'd give an update about... my life!! (I know you all care OH SO MUCH!!)

So here's what's going down in my world:

- The Semester for me has been pretty much OVER since December 3rd @ 1:15pm!

- Interning at ABC (being the general news intern) pretty much ended YESTERDAY!

- I anchored my own show at ABC

- I will hopefully be interning at ABC next semester but as a WEATHER intern so I have more of a focus.

- I finally got around to taking a picture of that AWESOMELY DELICIOUS recipe I posted a few days back... here it is:

- I am graduating college in May 2010...

- After graduation my family and I are going to TURKEY for 10 days!

- My credit card was murdered by X-Mas... I am just that good of a gift giver!!

- I am leaving Boulder, CO this coming Saturday for an ENTIRE MONTH... I am going home to recoop, relax and prepare myself for this coming spring semester which I have a feeling might "kick my butt"!!!

- My car "wolfie" decided he wasn't feeling so good last night when I got home... but I brought him to the doctor today and he seems to be doing a lot better... or so I think?!?!

- The weather in Boulder has been in the low teens for the past four days and it doesn't seem to be getting any better until Friday! Oh but then I leave to go home where these temperatures will continue (I live in northern Wyoming)...

- I am going to Salt Lake City on the 17th... with my mommy... it's not really a vaca though, she has to have a medical procedure done :(

- I bought an awesomely comfy blanket!! (YES THIS IS BIG NEWS! ha ha)

- I didn't have a stomach ache last night (also INCREDIBLY BIG NEWS!! - I typically have stomach aches EVERY single night)

- My voice tape for my radio production class in due on Wednesday

- My resume website is due on Friday

- I have constantly been rejected from all modeling gigs because I am a measly 5'2''!!

*Alright, I'll stop there because by the end of this list it just sounds like I am complaining! ha ha!
