Goodbye 2012!

You will not be missed. 
I am not going to do the recap of 2012 because I really didn't blog all that much and honestly I am more than ready to bid so long sucker to 2012.

Long lay the world in sin an…

We Decked the Halls!

I have helped decorate a total of 3 Christmas trees, in 3 different houses this year. At Thanksgiving we put up our family tree with my parents. Then my roommates and I went crazy with Christmas decor. And the other weekend I joined my aunt and uncle and my two cousins putting up their tree. Above…
