Holiday Cheer

I really don't understand all the hoopla around pumpkin spice lattes (or PSL), but peppermint hot cocoa and gingerbread lattes? Now that I can get behind!
For the past few years I haven't really gotten into the holiday spirit, but this year I'm really excited! My roommate put up some decorations around the house and they are super adorable.

I love our fridge snowman! I've named him Frosty.  It is super easy to make your own. All you need are scissors, colored paper, & tape.  Next week I'll be making holiday cards with my friends, so check back for pictures! At work yesterday I got to make wrapping paper samples for an upcoming Toddler Art activity.  I used brown paper grocery bags and decorated them with tempera paint, markers, and a stamp pad.

Bellingham Adventures

Awhile back I started a list of things I want to do before I leave Bellingham, and I thought I'd share some of them:

  • GRADUATE! I will be graduating from Fairhaven College after winter quarter, but the ceremony will not be until spring.
  • Pumpkin Patch: My friends and I started a tradition of visiting Stoney Ridge Farm every October.  I ended up having to work that day, but these lovely ladies all had a great time :)

  • CreativiTea: My roommate, my friend, and I went to the CreativiTea pottery studio in Fairhaven on 11/11/11 and 12/12/12.  Although we have run out of repeating calendar dates in this century, I would still like to go one last time. Here are a few of our past pieces:
  • I also have quite a few eateries on my list: Late Night at ABC Crepes , the lunch buffet at India Grill, and breakfast at Homeskillet 
It looks like I'd better get busy!
