Feel the love in the room from the floor to the ceiling

The words from this post's title are lyrics from "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays" by NSYNC (video/song found at the bottom of the post)!

It's winter break (yay!!) and unfortunately I'm going to have quite the busy vacation (oxymoron much). Amidst the project and homework (who assigns hw over Christmas break? yeah don't ask me) I have 7 college apps to finish (I'm also rewriting my college app essay, probably not a great choice, but I felt the need to), and my brother is coming over! I'm so so so excited, so don't worry I'm not complaining. It's been over a year since I've seen him so it'll be really special. There's really nothing like family. I'm just afraid I won't have much time to spend time with him, even go gift shopping because of my apps. I wish I wasn't such a procrastinator (and I say that as I blog, but blogging is a good kind of procrastinating so maybe it's ok...? harhar). I could get mushy gushy here with family and all, but I'm feeling terse, so you're lucky. Now for a few festive photos. Didn't edit them but I hope you enjoy them nonetheless!

A week in photos!

Twin Day at my school + ornaments (just for fun)
those are gum drops in the background (yes, real ones).
we even wore matching belts (the belts were unplanned).

oh yah, buddy the elf visited my school.

at my school's art appreciation club, we made holiday ornaments from pipe cleaners while watching Harold and Maude (love that movie)!

(Outfit post yay!) Ugly Sweater Day at my school. I find ugly sweaters very pretty/cool. I wish owned some! This one is actually my friend's (thus the rather large fitting). It was definitely uber cozy and comfy though! I wish I could've kept it. Teehee.

i got a little cookie decorating excited.

literally shakin' up christmas.

some more winter-y photos:

i love this movie so much that i wrote my college app on it, but now i'm rewriting it so i'm writing about clarice starling from silence of the lambs. serious contrast for realz.

if you're feelin festive, check out my christmas playlist on the right. i've included some of my favorite christmas songs (in no particular order)! i hope you like em!

christmas is seriously my favorite holiday. i think it's something everyone can partake in even if he/she is not religious. i think the religious aspect adds a truly special meaning to it, but there is always something special in sharing the love and giving gifts to others. i wish i could give a candy cane or some kind of gift to everyone reading this, but i give you a virtual hug instead! *virtual hug* :)

here are a few freebies from My Owl Barn: printable holiday gift tags, (make your own) owl 2011 calendar, and more gifts tags/screensavers. :)

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays! God bless us everyone! :)

I'm not sure when I'll be able to post again with apps and family and buzyness, but I promise to post sometime in January! Until then, peace out my friends! And I hope you have the best holiday ever!

song of the moment -
(christmas + nsync is what i've been up to recently. i had a major 90s flashback)

and a special from nsync:

Merrrrrry Christmas!!~~ <3 <3 I love your ugly sweater. See, I never knew about ugly sweater day, which made me supersad. I was wondering why everyone had on these hideously-awesome reindeer themed sweaters and was jealous. DD: alas..

This is so adorable! =( I'm sorry your Christmas break is going to be filled with work. Don't worry in college when it's over, it's over. You'll probably be wishing for something to do! I hope you do try and relax though, I remember I was always working myself into illness last year!
I hope you have a Merry Christmas!!
