To say that this past weekend was eventful would be to say the least. Friday night, after my final exam, I convinced boyfriend to come and bake with me. It's tradition for me to give presents to my friends every year, regardless of the size of the gift. This year, I decided that since there were a lot more people I was close with, I was going to do gift bags of baked goods. I didn't realize at the time how much of a feat this would be. I enlisted in boyfriends help and even called in backup with my good friend A. (Needless to say, the night wouldn't have gone half as smoothly if A wasn't there). We started cooking at about 8 pm and didn't finish till about 1:30 am. However, it still left me two things to bake the next day. 

We ended up making 10 giftbags for friends and one for the boyfriends parents. They all included oreo balls, pumpkin or banana bread, chocolate chip cookies, snickerdoodle cookies, christmas cookies, fudge, mint chocolate chip cookies, and mini spiced raisin muffins. I'd have to say that the night was a success, and the look of joy on our friends faces when we gave them the bags made it all worth it.

Ch ch changes

Soon enough, my little blog here will be going under some changes. I'll probably end up changing a lot, actually. But it's about due time! I have some free time now that exams and school and sorority things are done with and I plan on using it to my full advantages. I'll be playing with the format, background and header. So if things get messy, I'm terribly sorry! I'll get it back to normal (except better) soon enough!

Sleep sleep sleeppp

Sleeep, what is that? I'm pretty sure the amount of time that I've slept in the last week and a half would add up to be about 17 hours. Total. For two weeks. I'm living off coffee and tea right now as I clear out my dorm, completely, make christmas lists, attempt to study for the next two exams I have Thursday and Friday, and avoid doing anything strenuous, like walking to the sorority house, which I'm about to have to do. Oh life. I cannot wait until I get to fall into my bed at home and just sleep, without a specific time to have to wake up, or any specific plans.

I don't know about you, but I am SO ready for Finals week to be over. In the next week I have to:

1. Take 3 final exams within 3 days. (You wouldn't think that this would be bad but they're all a TON of information).

2. Clean out my entire dorm room, food stash, clothes, makeup, desk drawers, EVERYTHING by next Saturday at 10:00 AM.

3. Continue working for a good 20 hours this week.

4. Sleep....maybe?

You know, it doesn't sound like a lot, however there will be many, many, many sleepless nights in the near future. Maybe we should just have fun this weekend...

Hair Colors...

I have obnoxious red hair...and no, it's not natural. I've loved dying my hair ever since I can remember. The first time I even put ANYTHING in my hair was when I was 11 years old, at my Aunt's house in New York. I came home with slightly reddish hair, and my mother flipped. It was funny to me at the time....

Well, recently I've been (continuing to) play with hair dye. However, I'm going to be in a wedding in June, a strict Italian Catholic wedding to be exact, and I think the bride's mother might just kill me if I had obnoxious red hair in the wedding photos...I don't think the priest would be too thrilled either.

So this weekend sometime I will be attempting to dye my hair to get most the red color out...I know the weddings in June, but I want to be sure that the color is right and not too obnoxious, plus I have to like the color. I thinking of going to a light/medium brown, auburn, or maybe even back to blonde.

Who knows...we'll see how it turns out this weekend!
