thanksgiving break

I had such a great and relaxing break. Totally taking advantage of these long breaks while I can, since I know I'll never get breaks like these once I finish school! (Is that why people keep going for more degrees? Must be why ;)) 

A good chunk of our Christmas decorations were up when I got home, and I absolutely loved it! (I've had my little tree up in my apartment since November 1!) This picture though definitely does not show the enormity of our decorations (nutcracker collection, other tree with our village and train, christmas book collection....)

I'm totally incapable of doing fun things with my own hair, but my sister has the perfect hair to play with! 

Our Thanksgiving day setup! (Christmas plates and placemats of course.) And a selfie to go along with it!

Gotta love family selfies while watching home videos, and taking pictures literally every time my sister randomly falls asleep....which happens a lot. Girl can sleep anywhere. (Not pictured: my mom who is sitting next to me, but was sick the whole break :( she caught bronchitis boooo)

We took a trip to Longwood Gardens on Saturday, and if you're in the area (we drive about an hour to get there) you absolutely must go for their Christmas display! It is completely magical and beautiful (plus, the hot chocolate is fabulous.)

And now, I'm back at school. BOO. But only 2 1/2 weeks until the end of the semester and I get to go home again! Just have to make it through finals first.....


  1. Still so jealous you got to go to Longwood. I try to go every year when I am back home for the holidays in NJ! Hopefully I can in a few weeks! Your break looked soo fun!

  4. Aww looks like such a wonderful time!! Breaks at home with the family were my favorite part about college! How cute did you make your sisters hair?! Love it :)


  5. Aw I hope your mom is feeling better soon! It's never fun to be sick in general but it's extra crappy at the holidays. It sounds like you had such a lovely break though!

  9. What a wonderful break!! I love Christmas decor and yours is just so classic and beautiful! and your braiding skills are beyond amazing!


  10. My niece has the longest hair and I had so much fun braiding it while we were home! I think fishtail braids are definitely the way to go!
