It is officially December 2nd, 2010 which means that it is officially Christmas in the City! Some of my floormates and I have been having a countdown since November 1st awaiting December 1st. At 12:00 am on December 1st Kirsten and I went to Ian's room to help decorate his Christmas tree. Even though it was so late we had a lot of fun doing it while listening to Christmas music and watching the fireplace on his tv.
Ian, Kirsten and I after we finished decorating the tree.
I don't know if it just me, but watching the fireplace on tv is a must during the holiday season. Whenever the guy goes and adds a log to the fire it's the best thing in the world. It's the little things during the holidays that make me happy. Only 14 days until I am home. I can't believe the semester is already finished! It seems like yesterday that I just moved into residence and in 14 days I will be moving out for 3 weeks.
My floor went out to dinner on Monday, well only 9 of us did because the others were studying. We came back to open our secret santa gifts. I made red velvet cupcakes and chocolate Christmas trees for the people on my floor and they enjoyed them.
I made a Christmas card to go along with my secret santa gift. I bought her a Secret Santa gift from Lush and a Christmas Blend instant and ground Starbuck's coffee bundle and a cute Christmas Tree lollipop. I ended up getting a $20 gift certificate which is exactly what I wanted.
Until next time,
