Life Lately

IMG_8800.JPG

If procrastination was a sport, I would win. Every time. Exhibit A: Finals 2015.  I should be studying as I type this, but oh well! Life lately has been a bit of a roller coaster. Some days I am crazy busy and overwhelmed, while other days I am completely free and relaxed. But come Thursday, finals will be over and I will be at home on my couch eating exorbitant amounts of Peppermint bark and watching Modern Family.

What are your plans for this Christmas season? My family and I are road tripping to Zion National Park in Utah for a few days after Christmas. I’ve never been and I’m so excited! It’s gonna be cooooold.

Below are a few photos from life lately, if you’d like to see.

IMG_8818.JPG^My family already bought and decorated our Christmas tree at home without me (Why college? Why?) so I was thrilled when my friend Michaela invited me to help pick out their family’s tree last weekend. It was difficult to find a good tree since most of them are overly dry because of the drought here in California. But I think we found a winner.

IMG_8819.jpg^Doesn’t it look pretty up against the red wall?IMG_8834.jpg^The sunsets around here lately have been out of this world. I still can’t get over how early the sun sets now a days though…

Well friends, that concludes this random rambling post. I hope your life lately has been filled with joy, laughter, and Christmas cookies! Have a good one.

Happy Weekend!

IMG_9541Hey friends, it’s the freakin’ weekend! Not only that, but I had Friday off due to a faculty conference, so it’s a three day weekend! WOOHOO! It was a long week for me academically, so I am more than okay lying around in my PJs for hours on end and catching up on Netflix. But I did take a quick break from my laziness to visit the Malibu pier and eat at Malibu Farm Cafe on Friday. The food at Malibu Farm is all organic and locally grown, not to mention delicious- 5/5 stars, would highly recommend! Plus, the view from your table can’t be beat. Below are a few photos from the outing if you care to take a quick look. I hope you enjoy and have a fabulous weekend. I’ll meet you back here in the blink of an eye friends.IMG_9542IMG_9544IMG_9545IMG_9553IMG_9557IMG_9558IMG_9559IMG_9561IMG_9571IMG_9575IMG_9580IMG_9581IMG_9587
