Friday Five December 9th, 2011

1. Finals will be over tomorrow afternoon. PTL! Then I'll be 7/8th of the way done with college. Exciting. Scary. Bittersweet.

2. Next week it will be just the Basketball teams on campus, and since I work with the women's team that includes me. It's annoying we can't go home for another week because they have a game next friday, but it is kind of fun for it to be just us here. Also we eat good, because the caf is closed and the coaches have to feed us, so that means lots of free food, Zaxby's, IHOP, etc. 

3. Once I am home for the holidays I plan on enjoying it to the fullest. My cousin, who is also graduating from college in May, and I plan on having a sleepover at my grandmother's house. I feel like pinterest baking and crafting is in order. 

4. Speaking of Pinterest. I have been contemplating what to get mom and dad for Christmas and I've been toying with the idea of trying to make mom and dad's christmas presents from ideas I've gotten on there. For Dad- scrabble-collage-of-my-wee-family.jpg


- My Dad and I love playing scrabble together and so I think this would be really neat to do for him. 




And for Mom-

photo coasters. We never seem to have enough coasters, and I think these would be really cool. But I don't know if I trust myself to pull this one off. Honestly, I'm not too sure I'm confident in pinterest dreams turning into reality. But we'll see if I decide to attempt them or not. 


5. This song by love and theft is one of my current favorites. Something about the feel of the song is beautiful, kind of raw. While I am a country music fan, this song is different than most of the stuff out there today. It doesn't have a rockstar vibe that I feel country guys today tend to strive for.
