two thumbs up

two thumbs up for the start of Christmas break. this is finally my last Christmas break in high school. gosh, that sounds nice. but today ended with a bang. last night was our "winter" choir concert, that left me totally tired+exhausted and the combination of that with senioritis= emily not opening her history binder or not even reading a single page of Macbeth. I know...I know what you're thinking. real classy.

things that have made me so happy about the holidays:
-that customers sing along with the music at salvation army in the aisles next to me.
-that a family in my ward has reindeer antlers and a red nose on their car.
-that my old math class has a christmas tree with lights everywhere and sprayed snow on windows. ah....
-eating 2 donuts in 2 different classes.
-in my IB music theory class....we were doing nothing. so my friend and I slipped out of class without him noticing to go up to said math class and partake in their heavenly goodness. they had a buffet of holiday treats while they made gingerbread houses/decorated cookies and watched elf. it was lovely.
-I left IB music again to go to my english class room and come back to find the room completely dark. slightly confused I look again and see that the teacher is battling a student over a football video game {very similar to techno superbowl}
-yeah, i pretty much love the last day of school.

{best thing ever: I don't have to go to school until next year! And I'm hoping to do some of this during winter break-ski!}
I love this picture of Utah, taken by the most amazing, inspiring Kelle Hampton (non-lds) who was interviewed by BYU-tv, as part of their collection of documenting inspiring people who do good and share good. Kelle has a DS baby, who is so precious, and her blog focuses on enjoying the simple things in life. Hence her blog title Enjoying the Small Things.


  1. your last day was pretty much a waste, sounds like

  2. I agree with momma. Don't you love days like that though?!!
