For me, with the end of a sickness always comes a ravenous appetite.
And I have been starving ALL day.
I am seriously considering sneaking some
into the movies.
Don't judge me.

Back in the Dressember saddle at last! So sorry for the absence,
but I have literally been in bed with the worst of colds for the passed few days.
(Seriously, I could post pictures from Christmas weekend,
but they would mostly just involve me laying on the couch
buried in blankets, eating smoked salmon,
while watching copious amounts of Lord of the Rings
and Hallmark Hall of Fame movies.)
Not a pretty sight.
Anyways, still a bit under the weather, but back in the swing of things.
I hope you all had a happy and blessed Christmas!

I am a five-year-old.
I had to get a much needed carwash this afternoon because
almost an entire bag of Chex Bold Party Mix
exploded in my car.
That's what I get for eating and driving.
I knew that filthy habit would catch up with me one of these days.
Oh, and I lost my phone.
P.S. Sorry I missed day 16! It was one of those work clothes only days. So lame.

I am officially done with school for this semester!
I had my final oral presentation in my arts management class yesterday, and
each student had to give a written peer review for everyone in the class.
One of my favorites: "Leah, you are clearly passionate. Follow your dreams!"
I put it on the fridge.

because I did.

It snowed a TON last night. Sadly, none of it stayed on the ground,
but it's still bitter cold out here.
Therefore, I felt it necessary to layer up to the extreme.
Two sweaters, two pairs of tights, and at least two skirts.
Happy chilly Sunday!

This is kind of a big deal.

Finished with school on tuuuessdayy!
