The most wonderful time...of the year...!

Goodevening, dears. I'm having such a nice day even though I had some very tough finals this morning. I'm putting them out of my mind for now though! I spent the afternoon and early evening with my mom, searching for Christmas gifts and running a few errands. We went to IHOP for lunch before that though, and I enjoyed a yummy chicken sandwich. Definitely wanting to try out my camera indoors (it's so awesome being able to take photos INSIDE!) - I took photos of us and our food! What an event. ;)

What I'm currently happy about/What I currently love:
o1. My mom! She's amazing! :)
o2. My camera! And my editing technique! I'm so pleased about all of this.
o3. Starbucks caramel apple spice holiday drink...mmm.
o4. Listening to my dad playing Christmas music downstairs.
o5. The fact that after 10:15 am tomorrow, I'm done with school for two weeks!
- - - - Of course, much more - but this is what is on my mind now.

I got this awesome scarf and vintage sweater at Goodwill yesterday as well, to build upon the lovely things going down right now. The sweater's colors remind me a lot of this $78 sweater from Kensie, but mine was $5. Hehe. That's another thing; I love thrifting.

Hope your week has been lovely! And hope your day was as good as mine!
