I have to take a minute to post about the classes I am taking next semester. I am finally in my Early Childhood Ed classes which makes me so excited! I am taking Intro to Early Childhood Education and Intro to Child Development. I'm also taking a writing class which is pretty standard. I signed up for Introduction to Nutrition because, well it was one of the only "applied sciences" offered that interested me. I'm also taking Acting Fundamentals, which acting class. 

Any ways I'm really excited to start this new semester. I just know it will be much better than my last. Well I need it to be actually.

In between getting ready for hubby to come home & Christmas I haven't had much time to post. Hope your holiday preparations are running smoothly!

DIY Ugly Christmas Sweater

I have to share the ugly Christmas sweaters that my best friend and I made for a party.

While sitting at dinner my best friend and I were talking about what we were going to wear to an ugly Christmas sweater party. Erin says "I wish I could somehow say that I am the ugly sweater." I replied "Just put an ugly picture of you on the sweater!" Thus our magnificent Christmas idea was born.

We scoured Goodwill and found two red oversized sweaters, and a few matching ornaments as well as some wreaths.

We printed out some very gorgeous pictures of ourselves and duct taped them onto the front and back of the sweaters. We glued the other ornaments on and hung some off of the sweaters.

We pinned the wreaths in our hair and had an ugly picture of the both of us on the back of our sweaters.

We had a great time and even though some of the stuff fell off of our sweaters we still looked adorable. This was extremely fun and different from every other sweater at the party!

December Goals

1. Try my very best on my finals
2. Work, work, work!
3. Make the best of the week I'll have with my husband
4. Figure out a schedule to work out & stick to it
5. Make some Christmas gifts!

Going to an ugly Christmas sweater party this weekend! The best friend and I have a little trick up our sleeve for our sweaters! I'll let you see the finished product later. Anyways, while shopping I found this adorable sweater.

Too cute and I had to get it, I'm sure my family will get a kick out of it when I wear it to Christmas! I really want to go thrifting soon for some oversized sweaters. There were so many to choose from! An oversized sweater + leggings + boots + scarf = a perfect daily outfit in the winter! I am so excited to put together my special surprise sweater for the party. 

Hope you college kids are surviving the wrap up of the semester. I am struggling, bad. Doing some extra credit tonight and tomorrow and just hoping to squeak by and pass these classes! HAPPY END OF THE SEMESTER! It's almost winter break. Just hang in there ( :

Do you want to be an angel?

Last night I along with tons of others I tuned in to watch The 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. I loved all the cutesie little outfits and the walking and poses. I also thought all of the little themes per all of the outfits in the show fit into were adorable. Shoutouts to Justin, Rihanna, and Bruno because I thought they all were amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed the fashion show! I was working on a paper while watching it as well. Gotta love college. These were some of my personal favorites --

The Biebs was also looking adorable. I just love him. 

Anyways, much later in the night while checking Twitter I saw many girls online bashing the Angels. Comments such as "that skinny is not attractive", and "probably anorexic" floated around the cybersphere. I happen to think these women are gorgeous. I have enough self love and respect to celebrate others beauty. I however, was trying to counteract those thoughts! I even challenged my followers to post some #bikinipics of their own! It got me thinking, why does watching something like the Victoria's Secret Fashion show make women so uncomfortable? Why are we not comfortable enough with our own bodies?

I have to say, these models are not the scary, skinny, unattractive ones. I think the Angels are toned, I think they have a figure. They work really hard for the figure that they have. 

We could all look like Angels! If you want to, you just have to work really hard.
It bothered me that someones first defence was to call them anorexic. I've dealt with a lot of body image issues in my life. I have battled eating disorders and to me, they are not something to take lightly or joke about. I always felt like no one understood what I was going through and honestly how could they? I felt like I alienated everyone around me. I had to retrain my brain. I will always have issues with my body. I am now more comfortable with my body, most of the time. It's been a long road. Loving yourself and the way you look is not easy by any means. I often don't see myself the way others do. As I'm growing up I'm becoming more comfortable in my own skin. 

I knew I had made a large stride when after watching the fashion show I wasn't in a state of self-loathing. I was actually inspired. I could have a more toned body, if I worked for it. And I promised myself I would. I am going to work to look like an Angel for when hubby gets home from deployment ( : 
What a goal!

Anyways lovelies, what did you think of the show?
What was your favorite?
