Winter Bunny

Finally! I just finished two-thirds of my final requirements and now I can breathe... I've been having a great one and a half weeks now, all making up for that horrible week. Happy to say that everyone is good, sprained ankles have healed, hearts are happy and at peace, and plans are looking good! We are now gearing up for the last leg of Fall Semester finals and that celebratory night-out right after Fashion Marketing finals. We are here to parteyy! Anyway, weather is wonderful. I have trudged through mushy, just-fallen snow (during a snow storm), held a snowflake in my (gloved) hand and marveled over it's tiny intricate pattern, and snowboarded (and wiped out) for the first time! It's wonderful, and I am making sure to make the most of my last weeks here. 

So the snow has turned me into an eskimo-lady.

My snowboarding adventure that made boyfriend über jealous ;p

I usually go for fashion over comfort; and this is seen by my love of sky high shoes, worn no matter how long I am gonna be walking, dancing, whatever. But when the degrees drop 10 below zero, all that goes out the door and I settle for comfort (translate: non-frostbite).
But okay, I cant stand the plain ones no matter how comfy they really are. So I got these, and I think they are lovely. They're fluffy and keep my itty-bitty toes warm. It feels like walking on carpet! Okay, but the best part is still the patent paisley pattern 


Now I snuggle under my favorite cape and sip a steaming cup of raspberry tea. Mmm...

Random things that made me happy: Another friend saying I looked like Lindsay Price. (aww..)
Boyfriend saying I looked hot on the snowboard. (haha. he's jealous.)
[Excuse me for being smug, these just made my vain heart smile :)]

and the most wonderful thing that fills my heart with pure joy:
God's promises.
There aint nothing better :)

Glad you week is going better dear! And I love your outfit! Lucky you for having snow! No snow here. :(

Anyway thanks so much for your comment, I agree wholeheartedly, as much as I want to dictate (sp) my life, I realize if it's not God's plan, it's not going to work out. So here's hoping I'm not reading the messages wrong and am venturing down the path He wants me on! :)



hope your doing ok Rachel! are you all done with your papers now? hope they went well.
