I Have A Life Again!

As of today, Thursday December 18th, 2008 I'm done with school for the year! This past weeks have been hellish, but I can't believe I've gotten through it with all of myself intact. I've spent every night since Thanksgiving working on papers, presentations, and finals. Where did December go? It flew by so fast and next week is Christmas.
Here is a recap of what's been going on in our lives these past few weeks.
McKay and I have been excited all year for his work party at Chef's Table. It was last week and boy it was heaven. Everything is so good, fresh, and you can taste the quality!

We've been spending long hours on our butt studying, listening to Christmas music. My new favorite Christmas album is Sarah Mclachlan's Wintersong. It's a fresh take on traditional Christmas songs. I highly recommend it.

This last Friday night was our ward's Christmas party which we're in charge of. With the help of our fabulous committee we were able to pull off a party of 200 people where a couple in our ward catered the most of the food themselves.

Liz, my dear friend couldn't wait to give me her Christmas gift. I was so excited because she got me a planner! It's not just any planner it's a Anne Taintor Planner. If you don't know who she is, she's a artist who likes to use vintage images and put sarcastic and crude sayings on them. I love her work because it's different and I get a kick out of it. Here are some samples of her art:

These are just a few of my fav's.

Tomorrow is my last day being an intern for Close To My Heart. It's been a fun 3 1/2 months were I've gotten to know a lot of the employees and will miss them dearly. I'll miss all of the snacks and treats people bring there. They told me to expect to gain a few pounds. Probably the biggest assignment I had to do was organize the entire prop room. This room is a haven for everyone's stuff in the company. It hasn't been organized for at lease 5 years. I'm proud to say that it looks beautiful now. A couple of days ago while at my internship we got an e-mail from the warehouse saying that they have some product that they were going to give away. I went down there thinking that there would be a couple of boxes of free stuff. To my surprise there were hundreds of boxes of free scrapbooking materials! Everyone was going nuts! I've never seen grown men go crazy after scrapbooking materials. I had so much adrenaline I was sweating. After it all I brought home a huge box of paper, stamps, ink, embellishments, card kits, albums, and much more. What a good day that was.

Here are some goofy pictures of me while working at Close To My Heart. You can tell we had some good times.

I'm going to miss everyone there. They treated me so well! Thanks Close To My Heart!
