A Book a Week

I labeled this post A Book a Week because that is what I'm hoping to do over my break from school. I love to read, and normally am in the middle of a book, but I have this habit of re-reading books, so I don't often branch out. Anyway, a friend lent me Eat Pray Love like a year ago, and I finally decided to start it the other day. I wasn't too excited about it, I'm not sure why, but I'm really enjoying it. I wouldn't say its the best book I've ever read (Gone With the Wind), but it is entertaining, and has even got me thinking a little deeper about my own life, and what makes me happy (definitely eating, definitely loving, unsure as of yet but open about the praying). I just enjoy it more and more as I read, and hopefully I'll finish it today so I can move on to something else. If anyone has any recommendations, I would love to hear them.

Over the weekend, we finally got the tree decorated! The tree is very Charlie Brown-esque, but I really love it. Josh and I were hanging out Saturday night and we decided we needed stockings. So I cut up an old blanket and made some. They are temporarily held together with only craft glue, but I think I'll get some yarn and stitch em up so we can actually put things in them. I even made one for Danny and Bean. Josh was pretty impressed, and I am feeling pretty proud of myself.

We did attend (and skip) a couple of Christmas parties this weekend, and now it is time to focus on my shopping list, since Josh is the only person I've actually bought anything for!!!

Our tree and stockings!
