No New Years resolutions for me, just a couple promises! I promise to give my all in school, take more time time to consider the importance of the future and to remind my friends how important they are to me! Anyways, I brought in the new year, 2016, with some of the best people on… Continue reading New year, same Q!
My new blog! I am actually not currently sipping a latte and wearing my Patagonia sweatshirt. I’m wearing a collared shirt from Kohls, jeans I’ve had for years and some socks that Sofie got me – keeping it real. Anyways, let’s get into my life.
Yes, it is this time of year again – Of course, I am talking about Christmas! My family and I joined the grandparents here in West Des Moines, Iowa to celebrate! Their house is always so nice, cozy, decorated to a T! As you can see:
As you can see:
The tree is beautifully decorated and illuminated thanks to my Grandpa, Steve. What you can’t see/smell from this picture is the food being cooked by Grandma Ann (I assure you, the food is well worth the year-long wait)!
Now, for what is really interesting: the present list! Here is what I have acquired:
- Amazon Gift Cards (that’s right, plural)
- Norwegian Sweater Vest
- Embroidered Towel (it says, “Q”)
- Antibacterial Facial Towel (thanks, mom)
- cute little Santa ornament with a secret compartment
- cycling socks, hat and gloves (shout out to my peeps in New Jersey – I miss you!!!)
- A couple books from my dad
- socks (SOCKS!!!)
- Fandango Giftcard
- Running shoes (Nike Structure 18)
- Last but not least… AVETT BROTHERS TICKETS (Sofie, you ARE the best.)
Most importantly, spending time with my family is always the best gift! (not just saying that, I really mean it!!)
Lastly, I’m off to Giant’ Ridge in Biwabik, MN for a few days to cap off the year! I CAN NOT WAIT to ski! FINALLY! However, all the cycling gifts I’ve received have tempted me to go on some winter rides (I mean, as an adult I am able to do whatever I want! Right?)
Always wishing for snow,
