Out with the Old, In with the New

This year has been a year of change for me, for the good I should say. I can't wait to see how 2013 unfolds. I really feel like some great things are going to happen

This past year I...
Left a job to start a new one, which I cried for weeks about. I still miss my TFA family.
Started working as a Behavior Assistant for a therapy company with the best mentor ever, and and excellent teacher in her field.
Graduated graduate school with my Masters in Education.
Moved from Downtown Orlando to Lake Nona (Love)
Had to deal with my evil anxiety coming back full force, but I am on the mend.
Saw my first Broadway show- Wicked!
Stayed in the most fabulous hotel in New York City, The Plaza. It was dreamy, classy and the best ever!
Traveled to Williamsburg, VA for a colonial times Thanksgiving.
And most importantly I realized people are not who you think they are, so choose your friends wisely.

So it's Out with the Old and in with the New~

Christmas Party Weekend

This past weekend I was busy busy busy with Christmas parties! Friday night I had my work party at Dixie Belle Café where we shared fun, fellowship and southern food! Of course we had an ornament exchange that was a lot of fun also.
Saturday night my friends Hayley and Kent had her annual festivities at their house. It’s always a fun time there! We too, had an ornament exchange and played some silly games J
Sunday was filled with getting things ready for my annual Christmas Cookie Swap. I love having my friends and family over to trade Christmas desserts. I made a treat from Martha Stewart living- “Coconut Christmas Trees”. Which are just like a macaroon, but shaped like trees and dusted with powdered sugar to resemble a snowfall.
There is also a little bit of a competition! This year, Hayley and Michelle went home with the prizes for their awesome goodies! Hayley made everyone’s favorite peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate. Michelle won for her creative Christmas tree cupcakes!
We also had so many other great desserts that we ate up and took home! I am so glad I was able to do the swap again this year, it is always a nice time.

What kind of cookies do you like to make for the Christmas season? I would love to know! Comment below!

The End of a Long Journey

Well, here I am writing this post on the Friday that I OFFICIALLY GRADUATE with my masters degree! I have been waiting for years for this day and it is here! Yay, yay and yay!
It sure has been a tough road, lots of ups and downs. Tears of finals and writing papers, ughhh the thought of it makes me want to crawl in a hole! But I did it! It's over!

Now I have time to spend writing in my blog, which I love to do! I wish I could just write for a living, and create awesome blog posts...that would be fun :)
Have a great weekend friends...I'm spending mine celebrating the end of a journey, the beginning of a new one, and will be busy with three Christmas parties!
