An Oxford Christmas

This Christmas is a little bit different than what I am used to. Ok, it's nothing like my normal Christmas day, but I enjoyed every minute I got to spend with J. He has really done everything he can to make this Christmas special for me even though we both are away from our families for the first time ever.

We considered going to NC for Christmas, but we would have had to fly there and back within a couple of days with the way that the Cotton Bowl schedule worked out. Instead, we saved a few hundred dollars and Skyped the family there.

A Lazy Day...

If you know me, you know that I tend to bite off way more than I can chew.
(I enjoy having plenty to chew on. I have lots of energy!)
Every once in a while, however, I get a moment to relax. Today was one of those days. I ran a few errands, but I gave myself most of the day to have a "brain break". No studying, reading nursing textbooks, or listening to lectures.

I feel guilty for neglecting my blog, but I do have GREAT NEWS!!!
I have enlisted the help of Jessica at Front Porch Studio (who is a complete doll) to help me give my blog a little pizazz. I will have plenty of time to update over the Christmas break, and having this face-lift I've been coveting for months will inspire me to update more often.

Until then, it is back to biting/chewing for me. My last final is MONDAY, so back to the books tomorrow!

PS- Can't wait to blog about my half-marathon! It was one of the best things I've EVER done for myself!
