Happy 2011! Golly, I can’t believe another year has gone by (do I sound old yet?). How did you spend the last moments of 2010?
Above is one of the few pictures of the snowstorm we just had that I took. It’s nearly all melted away now!
I just had to share these Wii controller cookies. They’re awesome!
The adorable blogger over at Cassiopeia made some awesome broken glass jello. Totally something I want to try in the new year!
I kicked off the New Year with some friends, playing Taboo and acting like goofs while watching the ball drop. On Sunday I went for a run with an old high school friend, Missy, and then we went to Starbucks to drink tea and chat. Is it weird that I always feel so grown up when I go there?
On Monday my friend had a Virginia Tech/Stanford football game party. It’s the first college football game I’ve ever watched, and we all had a ton of fun eating Chick-Fil-A, wearing maroon and orange (VT/Hookie colors-where my friend goes to college), and cheering, even though Tech lost. On Tuesday I got a haircut (and for a blissful 48 hours had straight hair!) and went thrifting at Goodwill with my friend Amanda (where I scored a sweet little boy’s blazer). That night I went over my friend Jess’s house, where a few friends and I played Pictionary (we’re big into board games) and watched Beverly Hills Chef (most ridiculous show ever).
If I look terribly sleepy in the picture below it’s because I was. Is it sad that I was sorely tempted to be vain and not post this because somehow the picture is terribly awkward to me?
Anyway, I’m wearing some super awesome tights I scored from lovely Amanda of The Upside of Wonder. She hosted a We Love Colors giveaway that I won, and I’m seriously in love with the tights I got! They’re warm, stretchy, non-snaggy, and just plain awesome. Hopefully you’ll be seeing my other (red!) pair sometime soon.

Also, welcome and thank you to all of my old and new followers, commenters, and readers! Y’all are seriously the best.
